Isn’t it just cool to get the weather forecast before you plan an adventure outing, just by checking your smartphone? With advances in technology and satellite imaging, weather forecasts are more reliable than it once used to be. Searching for “weather” in the app store leaves you with an endless list of options, making it overwhelmingly difficult to choose a reliable app. Today, you can find numerous weather apps for your phone, but it is good to know which one of those are reliable and which are not.
When it comes to weather apps, the best ones should give you the current radar imaging, and a wider sense of the weather in the region you are located. There are many apps that allow users to input the weather conditions near you, but most of them are not reliable. An important factor for getting a reliable weather forecast is a solid internet connection because the best apps keep updating the weather using forecasts and radar imaging.
Here are 3 of the best weather apps you must definitely try:
This is actually a fun app, probably the grumpiest and moodiest app you will ever find. It is quite different from the rest of the weather apps. Instead of showing beautiful landscapes or fluffy clouds, the grumpy app delivers the weather in the form of a short grumpy comment. This cool weather app is available for free download on Google Play and iTunes. You can use it as a cool home screen weather widget on your Android phone. Although the app is totally free, if you wish to add extra weather mood texts and fun characters, you may have to pay a small fee. All in all, the grumpy weather app is a fun and interesting way to know the weather updates.
As opposed to the grumpy weather app, accuweather is a more elaborate app with plenty of features. The layouts and features of this app are almost similar to the Weather channel. AccuWeather uses images to show the current weather (sunny, cloudy, rainy, etc), and also lets you know the temperature, pressure, humidity, winds, and “feels like” temperature. Accuweather will also let you know if big changes in the weather are likely to occur. Accuweather can be downloaded free for android devices and iOS.
Yahoo! Weather is another beautifully designed weather app that has won an Apple Design Award way back in 2013. In addition to the most accurate hourly, 5 day and 10-day weather forecasts, the app also gives details of pressure, wind and chance of precipitation. Yahoo Weather’s image backdrop is usually a stunning picture of your location or images of the current weather taken directly from Flickr. It is a very simple to use app that provides just the right amount of information you need.
