Irishman creates climate-predicting app that helps you dress for all occasions

Most of us have been caught out by the weather here in Ireland after we looked outside, saw a clear skies and thought, ‘feck it, I don’t need a jacket’, only for it to start raining cats and dogs.

Thankfully, there’s a new app created by an Irishman that can predict the weather and it will also tell you what to wear.

Cloakroom is the app in question and James Cleary, a 28-year-old web developer from Co. Derry, created it with the help of the Scottish based digital studio, Lewis.

Speaking to Edinburgh Evening News about Cloakroom, James said: “Originally the idea came from the realisation that most weather apps suffer from information overload.

“Rather than building a replacement, I thought it might be nice to have something visual, clear and simple to go alongside them – just showing the extra items you’ll need for the day ahead.”

The app is turning heads in the tech industry too, as it was recently made Sony’s “app of the month” with the company saying: ‘We think Cloakroom is an app to watch out for’. Talk about high praise.

Cloakroom is available worldwide on Android and you can check it out over here.
