If you’re obsessed with knowing the weather 24/7, not just where you live but any location, then The Weather Channel app is a must-have! Even if it’s not an obsession, it’s just a handy tool to have so you’re able to check the weather on the fly, anytime and anyplace. The app promises to deliver the most up-to-date, accurate weather details at all times.
The Weather Network itself employs over 200 meteorologists whose job it is to not only gather the information, but deliver it to its audience in a timely manner. The network uses ultra-local TruPoint(sm) forecasting technology, which basically means not only will you find weather details about the next hour, but your full day, the next day, and even a full week from now.
The app features a new design with the ability to swipe between locations so you can check out a few locales quickly and easily. The new "Find Me Now" button is especially cool and has been incorporated with the Search icon. As well, the search box that previously remained open has now been replaced with a Standard Search. You’ll now find all your information and settings on each screen. The updates have made it much easier to delete, edit, and save your favorite locations as well, making the whole app just easier to use.
As for the weather information, you’ll be able to tell immediately if there is a severe weather warning in your locale thanks to severe badges that alert you. You can choose to expand the weather for more details, or collapse it for a more compact look. You can even go so far as to personalize the background image by adding a photo of your choice and use various weather overlays.
It’s easy to go on and on about the details on this app, as it really does make for a handy tool to have. You’ll find once you’ve got it downloaded, you won’t be able to go without it.
