One type of app that will always be needed are weather apps. The weather is constantly changing and there is always a need to keep track of it during the day. You go into work in the morning and it’s sunny and come out and it’s raining and cold. Knowing that might happen before the day gets underway might be useful. Enter the “Weather Live” app by Apalon. It’s a free weather app for Android and iOS.
User Interface and Functionality
Weather Live displays temperatures for a specific area, windspeed, pressure, time, hourly weather, daily forecasts, and weather advisories. Numbers are displayed in US Standard and Metric system. Users simply make choices in the settings for what they would like to see on screen. The layout of the screen can be set to one of four different modes. Dashboard (all details) shows the weather in two rectangular style boxes that are somewhat transparent. Users can see the cloud background and the weather. The Dashboard (current state) shows only the current weather. No hours and no forecasts. One rectangle rather than two and it is still transparent. Then there’s the text only view. This is the view that comes up by default when the app is loaded however it is my least favorite view of them all. The screen just looks too busy and not very styled. The last view is the Circle layout. This view shows all the details but the current weather state is in a large circle at the top of the screen. I like this view and the Dashboard (all details) best. Both give all the weather information and they both look amazing.
Some other information. This app is a free app so there are times when it will show and ad or two and it will also ask you once in a while if you would like to upgrade to the pro version. I can’t fault the developer from trying to earn money with their app but it does take a little away from the experience a little bit, but it’s not a deal breaker.
Overall Opinion and Rating
Overall I think the Apalon Weather Live app is a great weather app perfect for anyone’s android device. It has a great looking interface and gives users up to the minute weather information. I highly recommend it for anyone looking for weather information on their mobile phone or tablet.
