A Reader’s Submission: Found an excellent weather site. Was so impressed with it I subscribed! I travel over multiple states by car for business so am always on the lookout for a good weather app…

Recently a visitor to “Tech News for You” contacted me (Rick) and submitted information about a weather site and app, called “Windy.com“, that they highly recommended. I took a look at this and found that the “Windy.com” app and web site as a new find for me and that it is everything the reader stated. Thank you to “Carmicheals” for this submission.

To help get you to the weather site and to the app, here is what the reader had to say:

Found an excellent weather site/app:

https://www.windy.com/

Was so impressed with it I subscribed! I travel over multiple states by car for business so am always on the lookout for a good weather app. This one’s right up there with RadarNow

which I have also purchased. Thanks for your site – good job on the rename and upgrade!

Cut The Cord For Philo? You tell me…

Here at “What’s On My PC”, I have been looking over the online TV services. One service you may want to look at is “Philo“. If you can live without the news and sports, for $20 a month (can cancel anytime) and stream up to 3 devices, Philo is a very reasonable cost effective option; OR, could combo this with another service to patch in the news, sports, etc… You tell me. Is Philo a good option?

Raindrop.io – All In One Bookmarks and Collections Manager

There are many options to store your bookmarks; but, Raindrop.io has to be best. Here at “What’s On My PC” I have been focused on finding something to store collections of things I am specifically focused on. For example, I may be looking at a collection of Android apps to post about on the blog. Typically, I could create a folder in my bookmark manager, label it Android apps, and just bookmark it; BUT, I wanted something that had a more modern visual appeal to it that would allow me to customize it to my liking.

I think I found what I have been looking for with Raindrop.io… It allows me to store my regular bookmarks; has the option to create collections; has modern visual features; has mobile platform options; has browser extensions; and, it allows me to customize the appearance. What more could I want?
