Great Weather App

The Weather Channel shows the users their current weather conditions, forecast, as well as local and world weather-related news.

The home screen automatically displays the user’s local conditions that include the temperature and a short description of the forecast. Users can click to expand the temperature icon to reveal information such as the current humidity and sunrise and sunset times.

The app includes a 10-day forecast tab that displays each day’s high and low temperature and description of the day. The tabs can be expanded to reveal the hourly temperature, cloud cover, wind direction and speed and precipitation.

Users can view the current and future radar and set alerts (i.e. severe storms) to ping their phone if inclement weather is heading their direction.

The video tab allows users to view the Weather Channel news as well clips from other TV sources. Users can search for specific video and share clips through their social channels.

Pros
Hourly weather listed
Updated constantly
Share weather information through social channels

Cons
Video feature features a lot of unnecessary information

Bottom Line
This is a great weather app that is packed with a ton of features. The most useful is the 10-day forecast that shows the hourly temperature; Great if you’re planning a weekend trip. The app is very easy to navigate and it does exactly what you need a weather app to do - show you the forecast and update it regularly.

Great weather app. Recommend Download.
