5 years   «Weather Alarm» App


Weather Alarm is a free service provided by Kantonale Gebäude-Versicherungen and Helvetia Insurance, with meteorological data from SRF Meteo. Originally available as an SMS service, the storm-warning service was launched in 2011 as an app for iOS and Android.

Since then, the multi-award winning Weather Alarm app has blossomed into one of the most popular weather apps (for more info, also read the contribution of watson). In the interim, more than 750,000 Swiss citizens have come to benefit from the severe weather warning service and comprehensive weather forecasts. This is great news - and the result of continuous work, because weather alarm  has been continually offering its customers new features and enhancements since the launch.


Redesign and new features for the anniversary


For its 5th birthday, the app has now received a soft redesign and some new features that offer users even more convenience:

  • New weather icons: The symbols specially created for Weather Alarm easily and intuitively represent the many possible weather situations.
  • Screen notifications: The alarm type and the warning level are already displayed with a colored alert icon in the notification. This enables all relevant information to be seen at a glance.
  • Improvements in typography in order to improve legibility.
  • Clickable towns in the forecast overview map that lead to a detailed view.


Have fun with the latest release!
