"The ultimate weather app"

Reviewed by / Apr 17, 2013

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.

Must have.

    Good weather app but sometime the current weather is wrong. It will be raining lightly or just cloudy/overcast and AccuWeather says "Thunderstorm". The temperature doesn't update as often as I have it set to. I have it set for 30 minute intervals but it doesn't update the temperature for over an hour unless I launch the app. I'd like to see a 36 hour forecast instead of the minute cast, it would b

    Since the Android/Lollypop update the following occurs: 1. Drains battery (very fast); 2. Does not update frequently; 3. Widget is ugly and no longer contains all features; 4. Maps do not always change when cities reviewed change. Please update with all fixes.

    App super slow. Fox couldn't predict weather if families lives depended on it. 1% correct. Go free don't purchase... As soon as I left this review , I was prohibited from commenting on other people's reviews. Down with big brother...

    Ever since the lollipop update came in, this app has not worked. The app will not start. Weird thing is the widget still works.

    Unfortunately, Underground weather is the ONLY, truly accurate app, this app is at this moment off by 4 degrees Fahrenheit at my location. I do like all the info provided and graphically looks good. Finally, app may be more accurate, but will not refresh when I hit refresh, still shows last update almost 30 minutes ago....no matter how much I hit refresh
