Your mPING app crashing? Reports not working? UPGRADE! We knew this time was coming, and it's finally arrived. The old database had to be shutdown, which mean anyone using an older version of the mPING app will no longer be able to participate as a Citizen Scientist. For both iOS and Android, that means if your app version is less than 2.0, then you need to download the new app. Both apps were updated in January, so follow the links below to get the latest release. This is particularly important for Android users, the new app has its own Play Store page. Please update today and continue to submit your valuable observations!

Welcome to the mPING Project

Meteorological Phenomena Identification Near the Ground (mPING) is a project to collect weather information from the public through their smart phone or mobile device. The free mPING mobile app was developed through a partnership between NSSL, The University of Oklahoma and the Cooperative Institute for Mesoscale Meteorological Studies.
