Photography is our specialty!

Fotocast is the only weather app designed just for photographers, by photographers. It also works well for outdoor videographers!

There are a lot of great weather apps out there for smartphones and tablets. At Photographer’s Arsenal, our mission was to create a weather app designed just for outdoor photographers, with features useful to photographers that other weather apps lack.

A unique weather app...

… packed with tools and features for outdoor photographers!

Take your creativity to a new level

Always know the right time to go outside

with Fotoscore™

Fotoscore™ is an on-screen scoring system that tells you when weather conditions are perfect (or not so perfect) to take photos outdoors for your photographer type. The scoring system goes from 0 to 10, where 10 means perfect conditions outside and 0 are the worst conditions possible. We’ve polled more than 5,000 photographers of various specialties to understand what weather conditions are most favorable to shoot in. With Fotoscore™ you no longer have to look at the complete weather forecast to know if you should head outside and take photos!
