Surprisingly, Weather apps are one of the most popular kind of apps available for smartphones. We have a ton of them already available on Android, and now Klara has made its way to the Play Store. Klara is a weather app that shows you the forecast in “simple and easy to read charts”. It is a great app for professionals (read: meteorologists) however the developer notes that because Klara has clarity and a simplified design, it is great for everyday users as well.
With Klara you can get weather data from virtually any place. The data comes from MET Norway, so it’s quite accurate. All of the normal features are here, including seeing the temperature, precipitation, cloud coverage, wind speed and direction, pressure and humidity. You can get both short term and long term weather forecasts from Klara, so you’ll be able to know what’s happening today, as well as in a few days or even this weekend. Klara does allow you to add in your favorite places. So if you want to check the weather some place else, maybe where you have family, you can have that set as well. Customizability? Klara has that as well. Perhaps not as customizable as some may like, but Klara does have four different color skins that are available, as well as a widget that you can place on your home screen.
Klara is a material design weather app, and it does look quite nice. You have a slide-out drawer on the left that will bring you tons of other options and settings. There are also tabs so you can check out the humidity, wind speed and such. The long-term forecasts do also give you the time that the sun will rise as well as when it’ll set. Not to mention that you can see up to 10 days in advance. Which is about the normal length for weather forecasts these days.
Over on the Play Store, Klara is available and it is free. No in app-purchases whatsoever and it does support Android 2.3.3 Gingerbread and higher. Which should work on just about anything running Android these days.
