MetService has release an app for iPhone and Android (see screen shots from iPhone version, right).
Unlike the free mobile version of Metservice's website (m.metservice.co.nz), there is a small one off-cost of $2.59.
A rep for MetService said the app has features not available on the mobile site, including videos, real-time radar, traffic cams and the ability to add your own weather photos.
The developer was Wellington's PaperKite, last in the news for creating the NZ Budget app, which cost the government $59,000 and was downloaded 8600 times.
Asked how much the MetService app cost to develop, spokeswoman Nicola Burroughs replied: "A lot!."
"There are lots of interactive elements and we wanted to make sure it was jam packed with features given that it’s a paid app.
"As is often the case, these things can end up more than you thought."
The app is available from Apple's iTunes AppStore and Google Play (formerly Android Market).
