The Top 10 iPhone Apps for Tracking Weather

The Top 10 iPhone Apps for Tracking Weather

With summer here it’s a good time to keep tracks on what the weather will look like so you can plan your friends and family outings. And with a computer in your pocket, it’s never been an easier time to keep tabs on the current and future weather conditions.

Here are the top 10 iPhone apps for keeping track of the weather.

Dark Sky ($3.99)

    I’m in love with this app. Dark Sky isn’t really a full blown weather app but is indispensable in my weather tracking utility belt. The idea of the app is to tell you if it is raining now or if it will rain in the next hour so you can plan your next hour accordingly.

    Need to take your dog for a walk? Check Dark Sky. Going for a bike ride? Check Dark Sky. I’ve found that it is pretty darn accurate too; it’s helped me stay out of rain during a workouts a few different times.

    My-cast Weather ($3.99)

      My-cast

      is a great weather app for quick access to the current temperature and conditions like wind speed and humidity as well as access to a radar view of your current location and daily and hourly forecast. My-cast Weather also has a tab for local weather alerts.

      The best thing about My-cast Weather is that it holds a ton of information in a very simple interface.

      Weather+ ($.99 currently on sale)

        Weather+

        is another weather app that crams a bunch of info on your iPhone screen but doesn’t do it in a horrible way. You get everything that you would want out of a weather app like current temperature, 5 days highs and lows, 3 hourly temps and icons for weather conditions, and the current wind speed. Another nice touch is the background video for the time of day and current weather conditions.

        You can set unlimited number of cities. One thing that annoyes me is the huge HTC Sense-like clock on the page. Seems like a waste, but some people really like that look.

        Living Earth HD ($.99)

          Living Earth HD

          is a world clock and weather app on steroids. You can basically see the conditions of millions of different locations around the world with beautiful real time cloud coverage on a 3D map of earth. It’s a very low-key and well done app that is great if you want to look up general weather conditions of places around the world.

          Fahrenheit ($.99)

            Fahrenheit

            reminds me a log of My-cast Weather except it has a little more of a cluttered feel. The app is still highly usable and good looking though.

            Fahrenheit claim to fame is that it uses the app notification icon to inform you of the current temperature in your location. Rather than Apple’s perfect 72 degree icon, this one is actually useful.

            Weather Underground (Free)

              Weather Underground

              is my go to app when I’m on my desktop so it’s never bad to have a reliable friend on your iPhone. Weather Underground has come cool features like a local list of personal weather stations and a familiar weather report interface that we are used to on TV.

              Advertising

              The app is free so you aren’t out anything if you want to give it a try.

              swackett (Free)

                Swackett

                is a cool little weather app that takes a different approach; based on the weather in your area it recommends what type of attire you should wear. If it’s sunny it my recommend sunglasses, shorts, and a t-shirt. Cold out? How about a parka and some boots.

                Swackett also has the normal 5 day and 3 hourly type of forecasts as well as a radar map that you can view.

                Degrees ($1.99, Canada)

                  Degrees

                  is a nice little weather app if you are a Canadian (Mr. Vardy recommended this one). The interface is clean and easy to look at with all the information about the current conditions you would want. Degrees also has push notifications for weather alerts and a app notification icon like Fahrenheit’s that shows you the current temperature.

                  Advertising

                  Weather HD ($.99)

                    Weather HD

                    is more about the images and the interface than showing you a ton of weather information. In fact it shows you very little information in a very minimal way at the bottom of the screen. The images update depending on the time of day and weather conditions.

                    The images are beautiful though and you can set and swipe through different cities to see the current weather.

                    Weather ($.99)

                      One day I was looking for a super simple weather app with app notification temperature and stumbled upon Weather. The name says it all. Weather reminds me a lot of the settings and statistics from Apple’s native weather app but the graphics are more “bubbly”. You get the current temp, the high and low, current forecast, wind, humidity, and, well that’s it.

                      Simple and effective.
