Weather apps are a dime a dozen at the moment, but that doesn’t mean that they are all the same. Different weather apps have different functionalities that will be more or less useful depending on the needs of the user.
These are the best weather apps to download for iOS in 2020.
ClimaCell Weather Assistant is a great weather app provided by tech-startup, ClimaCell. They are breaking new ground in the weather app arena by increasing the accuracy of forecasts.
They achieve this by using their Weather of Things (WoT) technology, which utilizes connected devices such as cellular towers, drones, and other devices to ascertain weather patterns in local areas to augment existing weather data.
The app also comes with a wealth of features that can be useful to users. This includes information on the best time of the day to do certain activities, severe weather alerts so that you can safely plan your days and a hyper-local forecast, which can give you the forecast for areas as tiny as a single city block.
You can download ClimaCell on the Apple App Store.
Accuweather is a good option if you don’t want to shell out cash on a weather app. The app comes with an intuitive and clean user-interface with a weather information card at the top of the primary page.
You can scroll further down the app to see information on allergen levels, as well as the upcoming hourly and daily weather forecasts. The app also comes with a radar feature that provides some helpful information.
The one downside to Accuweather is that there are a lot of ads on the free version of the app. With the free version, you are still given access to a lot of the app’s functionalities, but these adverts are targeted as the app sells device-specific data. To get rid of these ads, it costs one payment of $3.99 to purchase a premium subscription.

In addition, the app features something quite unique. It has a connected home feature that can be synced with a Nest, Honeywell, or SmartThings hub. This will give you a detailed breakdown of how much energy you consume and you can use weather conditions to accurately estimate your daily energy costs.
