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.

  • AccuWeather and Reveal Mobile Joint Statement About iOS App

    8/22/2017 5:33:33 PM

    Despite stories to the contrary from sources not connected to the actual information, if a user opts out of location tracking on AccuWeather, no GPS coordinates are collected or passed without further opt-in permission from the user. Other data, such as Wi-Fi network information that is not user information, was for a short period available on the Reveal SDK, but was unused by AccuWeather. In fact, AccuWeather was unaware the data was available to it. Accordingly, at no point was the data used by AccuWeather for any purpose. AccuWeather and Reveal Mobile are committed to following the standards and best practices of the industry. We also recognize this is a quickly evolving field and what is best practice one day may change the next. Accordingly, we work to update our practices regularly.
