BeWeather & Widgets
100,000 - 500,000 downloads
- Animated backgrounds look good
- Plenty of info
- Doesn't choose weather station well
Weather information with (optional) animations
BeWeather provides weather information with animated backgrounds. The animations are nice and, crucially, optional, so if you just want weather information that's fine. The app isn't very good at choosing the closest weather station however.
The animated backgrounds, while requiring a largish download (50mb), are rather nice. They are also optional, so if you just want weather info, that's fine. The app has plenty of info, including hourly and daily forecasts, and moon cycles.
The app isn't very good at choosing the closest weather station - and the full version is required to choose manually, which made this problem even more annoying.
