Why are there no weather apps that graph for the iphone?

Dear Developers,

Every single weather app for the iphone sucks. Could one of you please build a weather app that has a temperature and rain graph like the one that comes standard with Google phones? Thank you,

-the world.

Sorry, but maybe there is a reason why no iOS developers put that kind of weather graph into an app, it's a hot mess.

Love Check the Weather, it's my go to weather app. I did a small review on my blog.

I have yet to find an iPhone Weather app that is as good as BeWeather or Eye in Sky for Android. Check the Weather is too plain and doesn't use the space it could be using very well. I have Living Earth HD, but it's just another app trying to be pretty and not very helpful. BeWeather is pretty, but it has nice nice info too:



That's pretty sad. Android gets the bad rep all the time, yet they have some of the best Weather related apps.

Thanks for all the suggestions! It looks like it's not as bad as my initial search indicated, but I have to agree with Jessica - iPhone weather apps just seem a little lacking. I may be a special case - the temp vs. precipitation graph is extremely useful to me as I put on cycling gear in the mornings.

I did just buy "check the weather". hopefully someone will come along with a temp+precipitation graph overlay in the near future.

EDIT: such a clean interface. I love this app even though it lacks the rain vs temp graph. Thanks again for the recommendation.

Have you tried an app called MyWeather Mobile? It has the graphs under hourly. Also if you turn the phone sideways it expands the graph or makes the map fullscreen if on the maps.

Wow, thanks for that. I tried using weatherzone since it has temperature and precipitation overlayed on the home screen, but it seems to be geared for Australia. MyWeather has precipitation and temprature graphs but they are on separate screens. That being said MyWeather has really good detail. The one thing I don't like is every time I log in it wants to set up registration with my email. Also, it asked to use my contacts. Really? for a weather app? I don't want my weather app downloading my contacts.
