Latest Introductions Expand Unique Toolset of AccuWeather's Top-Selling Software-Hardware System

State College, PA, April 3, 2013 - AccuWeather, Inc. announced today the addition of seven new software apps for its StoryTeller interactive touchscreen system. Supplementing an already-extensive toolkit of apps, the new introductions add expanded capability to cover breaking news, sports, finance and business, entertainment, elections, and weather, as well as innovative tools for in-depth, feature-story segments.

StoryTeller is much more than cutting-edge, high-resolution touchscreen hardware. Its unique value is derived from a constantly-growing set of software apps, designed exclusively for StoryTeller by AccuWeather, that allow broadcasters to tell particular types of stories and to quickly create eye-catching interactive displays that illustrate stories on a multitude of topics. StoryTeller apps expand the power of the touchscreen in the same way that apps on a smart phone expand its capabilities far beyond simple voice calls.
