Whatever mobile platform you’re using, you can be sure that there’ll be no shortage of weather vying for your attention, most of them decidedly average.
A meteorological marvel
The Android platform has a particularly generous selection of apps, but there’s only one that’s tempted us to dip into our wallets: the Palmary Weather PRO.
Sporting a particularly delightful interface, Palmary serves up a feast of graphically rich screens, raining down just about every weather related statistic you could hope for.
Thousands of locations
With 68,000 world-wide locations to choose from, you should have no problem finding an accurate forecast, with screens for current conditions, 12-hour hour-by-hour forecasts, 48-hour hour-by-hour forecasts, 48-hours detailed forecasts, 7-day expanded forecasts and 15-days forecasts.
Onscreen charts display temperature, probability of precipitation, precipitation, wind and humidity information, with users able to select how often the app updates and pick their location by GPS.
There’s also weather alerts, possible airport delays and a wide selection of weather satellite maps for your perusal.
A host of widgets are available, with status bar notifications keeping youi updated about temperature and weather alerts.
Multiple locations can be viewed at once, with a pleasing flip animation displayed as you swipe between forecasts and locations.
We think that Palmary Weather PRO is the best weather app we’ve come across on the Android platform so far, and heartily recommend it.
The graphics are a treat to look at, the interface intuitive and fun, and there’s a ton of information on tap.
Palmary Weather PRO for Android is available for $2.99 in the Android market or from Palmary’s website.
