An app called "Sora Beware" has been released that tells you if it will rain just by going to the front door without starting your iPhone.
Even if you watch the rain forecast on TV, it's not raining when you go out and you forget your umbrella ... The iPhone app "Sora Beware" that seems to prevent such accidents has been released by Feed Taylor.
Introducing an iPhone app like a mom
Sora Beware is an app that works with an iBeacon device placed in a specific location such as the front door and automatically notifies you of rain forecasts just by going to that location. By setting notifications in advance, you can receive information by voice or vibration without unlocking the iPhone or performing any special operations.
