New SWIFT Mobile Provides Live Weather Radar and Customized Severe Weather Alerts on Mobile Devices with Internet Connection

The new SWIFT Mobile is the most comprehensive weather tracking software specifically designed for use with handheld and mobile devices such as PDAs, PocketPCs, and SmartPhones in the U.S. Location-based technology allows the user to customize the display of weather radar and be automatically alerted to weather before it arrives.

Minneapolis, MN (PRWEB) February 26, 2007 -- SWIFT Weather (www.swiftweather.com) announced today the company will release the new SWIFT Mobile on March 31, 2007 - the most comprehensive weather tracking tool specifically designed for use with handheld devices. The new software will run on Windows Mobile devices, including: Motorola Q; Palm Treo; Samsung BlackJack; and T-Mobile Dash, SDA, and MDA.

"SWIFT Mobile will provide users of handheld devices the unique opportunity to know more than the local weatherman - and know it first," said Rory Groves, CEO of SWIFT Weather. "With the ability to combine multiple layers of weather data - including radar, cloud imagery, and severe weather warnings for blizzards, hurricanes, hail, wind, or tornadoes - the average person will no longer be at the mercy of local weather service reports on radio and TV - which is invaluable. An audible ring-tone and display on the handheld device allows the consumer to learn first-hand of the location of the weather threat - and the estimated time of its arrival to their current location. This will be an indispensable tool for business professionals who travel frequently, the construction industry, emergency management teams, anyone involved in work outdoors - and the average person who needs advanced notice of severe weather to safeguard their property and loved ones."

In addition, the new SWIFT Mobile delivers daily forecasts based on location; weather data can be animated to show activity over the previous hour; and a desktop display of current weather conditions provide an at-a-glance weather profile.

SWIFT Mobile will be available starting March 31, 2007 and retails for $10.95 per month for the Standard Edition and $13.95 per month for the Premium Edition. For more information, visit www.swiftmobile.net
