WeatherBug Debuts on Google Chrome’s New Platform

We’re excited to announce that WeatherBug is the first weather app debuting on the new Google Chrome packaged app platform. Starting today, you can be the first to experience WeatherBug on the Developer Channel (v.28 of the Chrome browser). If you’re using the current version of Chrome, you can still check out the browser-based version of WeatherBug, which can be downloaded at no charge in the Chrome Web Store.

What’s a packaged app? According to Google: “Packaged apps deliver an experience as capable as a native app, but as safe as a web page. Just like web apps, packaged apps are written in HTML5, JavaScript, and CSS. But packaged apps look and behave like native apps, and they have native-like capabilities that are much more powerful than those available to web apps.”
