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.

Download didn't work for the 2.99 version for my Android device
Need a semi clear widget please!! then would be 5 stars.
I still haven't found anything with as many features that runs as smoothly, and is a easy to use. And I still wish there were more, and better looking, widgets.
Excellent app very accurate best weather app I've used to date
Random guesses are more accurate than this.
I think I installed every weather app on the play store and the is definitely the best. It has the best display. Is the most accurate forecaster and even has a decent widget.
Reliably tells me the weather. What more could you ask for.
