Hi Poncho Weather Chat Bot Image Picture
May 9, 2016 - Hi Poncho Weather Chat Bot (http://m.me/hiponcho) is a weather bot that provides current weather, hourly forecast, and 5-day forecast with many convenient settings to get notifications. Along with the personal qualities of Poncho (the weather cat), it makes getting the weather enjoyable.

We did a through review of the bot to see how usable it was and what our thoughts on it was. Below is a sample walkthrough of our experience:
