AccuWeather is the official app of the well-known weather forecast service
An app offering a service that is already backed by a great agency with a web service is important. Actually, the quality of the information displayed, even the way that info is displayed meet high standards. That's AccuWeather case and, as it couldn't be otherwise, its app is a reflection of it.
AccuWeather for iPhone display in an organized manner, real temperature, RealFeel temperature, intra-day and weekly forecast and lot of extend info: humidity, visibility, sunrise and sent time, pressure, dewpoint, UV level and wind intensity. That's the "home" of the app. From the "tab" bar at the bottom the user can switch between categories. Thus, from there users can access weekly forecast, maps (for cloud cover) and weather forecast videos from Accuweather website (divided by regions).
Finally, and this is, from my point of view, one of the most original features of this app, from the "more" tab users can access RSS news, locations and lifestyle which is a compilation of recommended activities for such weather. For example, perhaps today is a great day for dog walking in your location, but an awful one for sinus risk due to humidity.

Great app but the widgets look horrible. 3 stars for the terrible widgets.
Update caused loss of stored places.
Really detailed weather info. Good layout.
The app barely ever loads with a single try. I always have to open and close and open and close and... It's really, reaaaally annoying when you want to quick-check. I'm really fed up...
It was on sale so I grabbed it.
I am lowering my rating because ads are present in the paid version. I didn't pay to have ads in this app. Every week from this point on I will lower my rating by one star untill the ads are removed. update: WOW! The ads just got way more obtrusive in a P
Off by 10 degrees sometimes. Also, notification is hard to read as it is very small and is surrounded by a blue box. I do like the videos with my daily forecast however.
