Microsoft has released a new Android app in the Google Play Store from its research team called Climatology, which is designed to give users a better idea of the world's sun and rain patterns, along with temperature and more.

The app's description says:

Climatology gives you climate information for anywhere on Earth: temperature, rain and sunniness. Whether finding where are the warm, dry places to go on holiday in December, or avoiding rain for your wedding, to finding out what the climate is like in Kazakhstan in April, Climatology allows you to discover the information you want.

Although the climate data that is collected by Microsoft Research has normally been used mostly by scientists, this new app allows that information to be shown to a wider audience. It's also a little odd that Microsoft would debut the app for Android instead of Windows Phone. What do you think of this new weather-based app?
