Microsoft seems to have taken a deep interest in 'all things unconventional.'
The company, of late, has been dishing out bizarre offerings (both at the physical as well as application levels) starting with the elimination of the start button in its Windows 8 OS, to the most recent wireless charging trousers and Fifa World Cup 2014 prediction experiment.
Now, the company has released a new experimental 'Android' and Windows Phone application called Climatology that intends to provide information related to climatic conditions across the world.
"Whether finding where are the warm, dry places to go on holiday in December, or avoiding rain for your wedding, to finding out what the climate is like in Kazakhstan in April, Climatology allows you to discover the information you want," states Microsoft.
Basically, Microsoft's latest 'experiment' is aimed at equipping travellers with the latest weather-related details from across the world.
These weather-related details are gathered and compiled by Microsoft's environmental scientists. This means that users can expect a fair degree of accuracy in the Climatology app, when compared to other applications that rely on third-party weather sources to offer climate-related details to users.
However, with Climatology being an 'experiment', the usefulness of the application on a global scale will require real-time analysis.
Microsoft also states that it is open to receiving feedback from users of Climatology. Users can report bugs/issues, if any, directly to the company.
For Android users, Climatology is available for download from Google Play. Users on the Windows Phone platform can check out the Windows Phone Store.
