This app also greets its user with his/her name and that makes the user experience more genuine and interesting.
Personally saying, Yahoo weather is the king of all the weather applications in terms of its user experience. It has been powered by Weather Underground, which is a trusted source for Yahoo’s weather information. Weather Underground is accurate and precise for almost every location in the whole world. The User interface of this amazing application involves beautiful pictures of the location that you are viewing the weather of.
The pictures are generally taken from Flickr, which is Yahoo’s official picture service. It shows you images of different places such as Walt Disney World and New York City. You are likely to get bumped by a new image every time you check the application for weather details. The user interface is easy, as it lets you swipe up and down to see various locations. It is a great app for checking weather forecasts of multiple locations quickly, accurately and with the trust of Yahoo!
Dark Sky. As the name suggests, it is a weather forecasting app available on the traditional Google Play Store. It is a genuine application for the people that need to get accurate details about rain, snow and any other geographical weather conditions. Dark Sky app has an amazing “Hyper-Local” feature which can give you precise details about the location you are currently in.
It can tell you when it’s going to rain and then in no time, drops will be falling on you. Its notifications system is pretty cool too. It notifies you of the weather conditions beforehand so that you can plan your day well and be prepared for what’s coming next. Dark Sky features a “Do Not Disturb” mode for nosy sleepy heads, who don’t like to get disturbed in the middle of their sleep.
And here we present you 1Weather, the weather forecasting application that has a mind-blowing interface. But there is one downside to using this application. This app has some ads which pop out of nowhere between you and your weather details. Though you can use this app for free, it also has a one time purchase of 1.99$ to get rid of the ads.
1Weather has some bugs which are being fixed continuously. Several Widgets make this app more interesting, beautiful and advanced than the others. You can customize the widgets for all 7 days of the week according to your choice and will.
This is the app we talked before in the Today Weather application section. Users use this app for only one reason, and that is its accuracy, which is better than any of the applications combined. It has a large collection of pre-loaded developer widgets that help you to get your weather details at an ease. AccuWeather has a nice user interface which also comes with a pre-installed Dark Theme for the dark lovers like us.
AccuWeather has a “Minute Cast” feature which helps you to see the minute by minute alterations in the ecological precipitation. Hard to understand? It’ll tell you how many minutes are remaining till rain or snowfall starts. This application makes it impossible for the user to download and use another one of the weather forecast application.
Weather Timeline is one of the best apps for weather forecasts if you want accurate details about locations whether it is your current one or a distant one. This app is highly customizable as it includes many customizing features that make it more elegant and advanced.

Google is dominating almost everything. So, why not the weather app. Google has a weather forecasting application known as Google Weather which gives you minute details about the current weather. You can also check the weather forecast for the upcoming days.
Widgets and customizations are inbuilt and there is a widget named “Weather at a Glance” which helps you to see and skim off the general details about today’s weather. With Google’s trust and dominance, no one can say NO to this amazing weather forecast application.
Want to know what this abbreviation stands for? What does it mean? It stands for National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. Wanna know why it is named so? Because the application gets its weather forecast details from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. It is a perfect app for weather loving nerds because it gives advanced details about today’s and upcoming day’s weather.
Weather Bug is one of the oldest weather predicting application. It is a great choice for Android users for its simple and easy to use user interface. It claims to be powered by “the world’s largest network of professional weather stations” and surprisingly, it proves that too.
This app is a bit different from the others in its features. Some of the extended features provided in Weather Bug is its heat index, pollen count and UV index. It also has some amazing widgets to check your weather accurately on the go!
The Weather Channel is one of the best known Android applications for forecasting weather accurately and precisely. This one has a vast collection of features. We’ll discuss some of them here.

All of them are free and can be downloaded from the traditional Play Store. However, in-app purchases are common in almost every application.
