Some of your daily activities are vastly dependent on weather, so it’s a good thing there are a ton of good weather apps available for Android. Most of the apps in the list down below have a number of features built-in, so it’s up to you to decide which of them fits you best, though design will play a role in your decision as well, most probably. Some of the apps listed down below fit in with Google’s apps due to Material Design elements, others, not so much. In any case, read on if you’re looking for a new weather application, and do keep in mind that the apps down below are listed in non-specific order.
Weather Timeline is an app that has Material Design elements, and chances are this app will appeal to quite a few of you. Do keep in mind that this application is not free, though, it costs about $1, but you’ll get plenty of functionality for your money. Not only does this app brings a really nice design, but it also allows you to add multiple cities in it, just in case you need the forecast for more places at once. Hourly forecast is also available, while you will also get a ton of weather-related info for a particular day, including wind detail, humidity, and so on. On top of everything, rain warning notifications are also available, and much more.
The second app on this list is simply called ‘Weather’. This application is free to use, even though it contains ads, and it’s actually considerably different than Weather Timeline in terms of the design. This app comes with full support for Android TV, while you can get hourly and weekly forecasts here. The user interface is quite intuitive, while push notifications are built into the app as well. You can track weather for multiple locations, while this app is currently holding a 4.4-star rating in the Play Store.
Weather Forecast app has been around for quite some time now, and it’s worth noting that there are a number of apps with the same name available in the Play Store, while this one is being developed by the Green Apple Studio. This app offers a really clean interface with a ton of info, including hourly and daily forecast, sunrise and sunset info, rain radar, snow reports, and a ton of other info. This application is free to download and use, but do keep in mind that ads are a part of the package.
If you’ve ever searched for a weather app in the Play Store, chances are you’ve stumbled upon AccuWeather. AccuWeather is one of the most popular weather apps in the Play Store, it has been downloaded over 50 million times, and it comes with a clean-looking interface which is Material Design-adjacent. Much like most other apps on this list, the daily hourly forecast is available here, along with a ton of other options, while the app is free to download, though ads are included.
Weather Live Pro
Weather Live Pro is usually a paid app, but it’s free at the moment. This app has a really nice-looking interface, and much like the vast majority of apps on this list, it packs in a ton of features. It has both rain and snow alarms, while it can show you info regarding temperature, pressure, wind, humidity, waves, and so on… not to mention that hurricane alarm is also included in the package. Weather Live Pro app is currently holding a 4.8-star rating in the Play Store, and it’s one of the best-rated weather apps currently available.
Today Weather app has been around for a long time, and it’s regarded as one of the best weather apps in the Play Store. Today Weather has its unique design style, and it’s noticeably different in that regard than the rest of the apps on this list. This app is currently holding a 4.7-star rating in the Play Store, and it comes with ads. Today Weather will show you air quality, UV index, and pollen count data, along with your regular hourly, daily and weekly forecasts. Rain alarm and alarm for ‘severe weather’ are included, while there are a number of other options included here.
Yahoo Weather is also one of the older apps around, though its design has been changed over the years quite a bit. This app is free to use, like many other apps on the list, though it does come with ads. Yahoo Weather’s design is also somewhat different than all the other app designs on this list, and this app also comes with quite a few options, ranging from regular hourly and daily forecasts, to interactive maps which contain radar and satellite views, while those very same interactive maps can show you heat and snow info.
1Weather is yet another really capable weather app, and like most apps on the list, it has a really high rating in the Play Store. 1Weather keeps it simple when it comes to the design, and yet it offers a ton of weather-related info. In the app, you will get hourly, daily, and weekly forecasts, while various graphs are available as well. In addition to that, you can check out weather through terrain and satellite map views, while alerts are available via notifications as well. These are only some features included in 1Weather though, the app is packed with functionality.
Weather by WeatherBug
Weather by WeatherBug app is a bit different than the rest on this list, this app focuses on radar view more than anything, but it’s also quite accurate, at least from our testing. There are 18 weather maps included in this app, including Doppler radar, satellite, lightning alerts, precipitation, local temperature, local pressure, local radar, wind chill, heat index, humid, wind, pollen, UV, and more. This application does come with ads, but it’s completely free to download and use.
Awesome Weather - YoWindow
Awesome Weather is yet another well-designed application, which along with some basic weather info, has plenty more to offer. An hourly and daily forecast is included here, and this app also brings some nice-looking widgets to the table, which contain quite a few info. Pressure, humidity, ‘feels like’ temperature, wind speed… and a number of other parameters are available in the Awesome Weather app, while the app itself is free to use, though do keep in mind that ads are a part of the picture.
