Weatherwise is an app that displays weather forecast in an original way
Local Wisdom, its developers, called it "Weather re-imagined experience". Weather info is displayed in a visual way, over landscapes which theme can be customized to user liking.
The stock (and the only one free) theme is a landscape with a ancient tree in the middle, hills, clouds and a stone path. On the right side you can see (from top to bottom), the place (you can select the places from "My Places"), current weather description, current temperature, maximum and minimum temperature, hours details, day of the week and forecast for the following 5 days.
In the bottom, there's a bar for managing the app. First, "theme store" from where you can buy new themes (most of them are $0.99). From settings you can set location, theme, randomize themes, temperature and windspeed units, local time, updating frequency, among other features. Finally, you can share screenshots by selecting any sharing resource installed on your device.
In conclusion, an original weather app, focused on scenery and highly customizable. Recommendable.

I like it because it helps me alot when i want to know the weather so it's good
Really a neat app but lately has a problem loading sometime. I uninstalled and reinstalled, hopefully that will take care of the problem. I wish it had more than 5 locations. I keep track of my family's weather. I do really like it.
I could not depend on the app. I always felt like I needed to go to other weather apps for accuracy. Additionally, my location kept redirecting to unknown areas.
Good graphics, good options.
Love this app. great graphics, lots of movement, lots of fun. accurate too.
I love the graphics and the "feel" of the app. I have told many, many people about it. I gave 4 stars because I do get the "weather fail" screen quite often and I wish there were more themes to choose from. I hope the art directors haven't given up on
