Today's Sickweather

Allergies, cough and fever are going around in Ashburn, VA, US


Florence and the Nightingale


Hello loyal beta testers and newcomers! We are proud to present our latest beta release, SW-0.9.3, lovingly nicknamed "Nightingale" in honor of Florence Nightingale and nurses everywhere. Without further ado, here's a rundown of the changes and added features:

  • No more membership required to search the map and forecast, or to connect with Facebook and Twitter for the "Your Friends" news feed
  • New layout, including "Today's Forecast" in the upper left of the page
  • We separated the "Today's Forecast" and "Sickweather Map" functionality, so you can search the map without changing the forecast and vice versa
  • New "Recommend a Remedy" function in the news feed, so you can help your sick friends feel better!
  • New "See Map In Motion" feature to reveal the directional movement and emergence of any illness, in any area, at any zoom level, over the past several days
  • New expanding map function to toggle between small and large maps
  • "Your Friends" news feed bug fix to remove duplicate entries
  • Hovering symptom and illness glossary definitions

Regarding the membership requirements, you will still need to log-in or become a member to post your symptoms and share them on Facebook and Twitter. We are developing other cool, members-only features that are coming soon! As always, use our Feedback button to tell us what you think of the new features.
