1. In order for this one to make sense, you will need to read #2 about how to purchase the app. Ever since August, we have been accepting pre-orders for the app that we are making, this will chip into #4 just a little bit, but we have two versions of the app. There is a storm chaser package, and the regular basic app. More will be explained about this in part #4. The purpose of pre-ordering is either because you are unsure if you have the money to pay when the app releases (nevertheless we will always be accepting payments after the app releases, never too late) or if you WANT the app but do not want to pay later. We have had some pre-orders and your name has been marked down so we know who you are. Those who have pre-ordered will not have to pay again of course, unless you have the storm chaser package. That bit will be discussed in part #5.
2. The steps you have to follow to purchase the app would be to either navigate to our weebly website by typing in Google "Arkansas Weather Watchers weebly", and clicking the "Weather discussions" link, and click app payment, or for an easier route, you can click this link -> http://arkansaswx.weebly.com/app-payment.html
That will give you the option to buy either version of the app.
3. The app will run on Android 4.0 or higher, or if you have iPhone, it will run on iOS 5 or higher. It will not run on anything below the listed phone versions.
4. We have two versions of the app, one of the versions is the regular app, this is the basic side of the app, it will have all of the incredible features we have set up for it, but it will not be as advanced as our other version, the Storm Chaser Package. It is also not as expensive, neither app is really pricey. The Storm Chaser Package will have more advanced features, this will be intended for other meteorologists on our page or other weather geeks, but not limited to them, anyone can purchase either version. The Storm Chaser Package will be a recommended by for anyone chasing of course, or anyone that is really into the weather.
5. The cost of the basic side of the app is a ONE TIME PAY of $3.99, the Storm Chaser Package is a YEARLY pay of $5.99. The reason we charge for the app is for the sole purpose of upgrading Arkansas Weather Watchers, not only here on the page, but at our homes as well. This would include getting better chasing equipment to storm chase with a bit more of a professional look, as well as getting better weather centers here at home for better forecasting and severe weather coverage. The Storm Chaser Package is a yearly and not one time because we have some money come out of our own pocket to get you guys the best we can find!
6. Here is how you purchase the app. The name of the app will be revealed once we get closer. But what you would do is to go to the App Store (iPhone) or Google playstore (android), and type up the name of the app. From here, you type "Arkansas Weather Watchers basic App for iPhone"...or "for android" if you have an Android. For the Storm Chaser Package..."Arkansas Weather Watcher Watchers Storm Chaser Package (for iPhone or Android)" There will be four different apps listed due to two versions for Android and two versions for iPhone. The apps will appear free, but when you download it, you must create an account. From here, if you have paid for the app, your account will be verified, if you have not paid, your account will be denied. We can see who pays for the app and who tries to make an account either with or without paying. Once you pay, your account will be verified.
Side note: There will be discounts all throughout the year for the app once it releases on the 31st. So be sure to check them out while they are on sale!
Thanks for reading and have a great night!
