The weather conditions are paramount in our lives. Weather determines our outdoor activities, when we take vacations, and especially our daily clothing. Having access to accurate forecasts can help you make the most of your time.
Weather forecast apps killed the weather man. You can now have full access to predictions on-the-go, in real-time. However, not all weather apps are equally well-designed and accurate.
Don’t know which one to install? No worries! Appszoomto the rescue. Keep reading to discover the most original and most accurate weather apps.
If detailed info and accuracy is what you are looking for, AccuWeather is your best option. It offers a service already backed by a great agency with a web service.
You can seamlessly check real temperature, RealFeel temperature, intra-day and weekly forecasts, and lot of extended info: humidity, visibility, sunrise and sunset times, atmospheric pressure, and more. In addition, access the weekly forecast, maps (for cloud cover), and weather forecast videos from the Accuweather website (divided by regions).
Finally, from the “more” tab, you’ll access RSS news, locations, and lifestyle, which is a compilation of recommended activities for such beautiful weather.
1Weather might not go as deep into the details as AccuWeather. However, the information is displayed in such a neat way that you’ll forget it. 1Weather is one of the most balanced apps when it comes to info, accuracy, and attractiveness.
The main screen shows the date and general weather, the temperature (maximum and minimum), as well as the humidity, precipitation, and wind speed. In the next screens, you have a seven day forecast, severe weather warnings, chances of precipitation, radar maps (only available for the US), sunrise, sunset, and lunar phases, plus tweets regarding the weather and pictures.
Most days, you don’t need precise data on humidity or allergens or wind speed, and being presented constantly with this wash of information amounts to little more than noise.
Solar presents you with exactly what you want – what the weather’s like now in terms of temperature and precipitation, both in written form and as a dynamic background colorscape. Warmer days flush your device with pinks and oranges; snowflakes drift across soft blues and whites on the chilliest of winter mornings.
The app will automatically detect and display your current location, but you can also add as many cities as you’d like and scroll through them at will. A swipe down reveals the three-day forecast. The design is miraculously both clutter- and ad-free.
WeatherSignal is something slightly different: it’s the first crowdsourced weather app. It doesn’t display info from meteorological sources, but rather uses your devices’ sensors to estimate atmospheric conditions in your location.
It doesn’t even matter if your device doesn’t have a temperature sensor, since it applies an algorithm which can estimate atmospheric temperature compared to the battery’s temperature. Likewise, you can see light, magnetic flux, and air pressure along with a picture that displays the overall feeling.
Other users can share their phone’s readout from their location. You can check them all right from the map. That way, you can have real-time and accurate data of the weather all around the world.
In the end, what’s the point of looking at the weather forecast? Most of the time, it’s knowing what to wear that day. AGLogic’s Swackett presents you with the atmospheric info in a way you can understand.
In other words, Swackett processes raw weather data and returns just the info in an understandable way. You’ll get a crafted people symbol (“peeps”) dressed in accordance with the weather conditions. In addition, you can switch views: forecast summary, peeps, imagery, and alerts. Check the weather at a glance and know what to wear immediately.
