The Met Office Weather Application is widely regarded as the best weather forecasting download available for UK citizens. Now it’s arrived on Android and all works very well indeed.
Like fine wine and The Beatles, weather reports on the local news get more and more important the older you get. Whatever your age, there’s a reason to be cheerful for the arrival of the Met Office Weather Application on Android. Addicts can check the latest forecast every three hours for new data and those who don’t care can make sure their parents share their obsession with their smartphone and no one else.
While Met Office Weather runs through a fairly unattractive charcoal grey menu system, its data is impressively comprehensive enough to make up for this. Containing five day forecasts for any British location imaginable and interactive weather maps with data for everything from UV index rating and probability of precipitation.
It’s all supremely easy to use and with the options to favourite multiple locations, you can even plan your weekend getaways on the move. This app promises accurate and up-to-date UK weather forecasts and it delivers on that often fallible claim for free. What more can we say?
