In our latest roundup, we’ve selected 5 of the best weather apps for the iPhone. There are plenty of options for getting weather information on the iPhone, and hopefully you’ll find one or two appealing apps in this list.
Here’s our list of 5 awesome iPhone weather apps…
1. The Weather Channel
The Weather Channel’s official app has been an App Store favorite for a long time. It’s probably the most used third party weather option, and that’s because it’s an overall solid app with a great selection of features.
Complete with full forecast, map, and even video information from TWC, this app is a very credible entry into the weather app catalog. And it’s free in the App Store.
Outside is a visually stimulating app that packs a surprisingly robust set of features. The app has a lot of charm; the sounds and colors are a pleasant way to check the weather.
Outside displays the current weather right up front, and the app uses a clever “swipe” interface for viewing forecasts. Outside stands out with its notification system. You can have the app notify you of certain weather conditions (when it’s warm enough to wear a t-shirt, etc.).
The design of Outside is interesting, and the little messages it displays when loading new weather information will keep you smiling while you wait. Outside is available in the App Store for $2.99.
3. The Weather
The Weather, by Clink Apps, is a sleek, full-featured weather app with some great customizable options. The grayscale, minimal design of The Weather app makes checking the weather a elegant and non-distracting experience.
There are plenty of weather details available, and the tabbed interface makes for an efficient app. You can even customize your own window to display the different weather elements you find useful.
The Weather looks great and possesses all of the features expected from a robust weather app. It’s available in the App Store for only $0.99.
4. Weather HD
What Weather HD lacks in features, it makes up for in design. Weather HD is probably the most visually stunning weather app in the App Store, and the those that are inclined towards images instead of number information will find Weather HD very appealing.
Weather HD’s interface is dead simple. When you open the app, you are greeted with an incredible nature animation that displays the current weather condition. You can see some number information on top of the graphic and see a forecast (with more animations).
It’s simple, it’s beautiful, and it’s got just enough features to make it a solid replacement weather app. Weather HD is available for $0.99 in the App Store.
WeatherSnitch is a great way to view monthly, weekly, and hourly forecasts. Although it makes a great everyday weather app, WeatherSnitch is ideal for things like that outdoor vacation you’re planning months in advance.
The app’s got a pretty clean interface that resembles the iPhone’s calendar. Although WeatherSnitch is geared towards forecasts, it’s also a good way to see the current weather conditions.
WeatherSnitch is available for $0.99 in the App Store.
Thermo is an incredibly well done thermometer-style app that only displays the current temperature. Although it may seem limited, Thermo is an excellent example of a well designed app that does one thing and one thing well. It’s available for free in the App Store, with a $0.99 in-app purchase for ad removal.
Fahrenheit does something inventive with displaying the current temperature. It shows the temperature on the app’s icon through a badge. Check out our full review of Fahrenheit for more information.
