Im waiting your opinions about the best weather app for iPad
I use Living Earth & Radarscope.
Living Earth has stunning graphics & live 3D animation of the Earth in real time. The weather forecast is pretty accurate. I believe they use Weather Underground for their weather data. Great notification widget too!
Radarscope is the best radar app for iOS no doubt! Very professional but expensive.
Both iOS apps are one time purchase for all devices.
Mac versions available at the Mac app store.
I will be getting Dark Sky too. Just waiting for a price drop lol!
Don't really need it now but would love to have it.
Any others oppinions ?
+1 for Radarscope....my go-to app for all types of radar-related data. I use Wx and USWeather as well, though there are likely better ones out there [some of which require iOS 7 or 8, but I'm using 6.1.3 on a 4th gen iPad...yes, I know I also have a link to the local pilot's weather forecast.
[Living Earth is very nicel as well, but I have that one on my MacBook Pro; the Mac OS version of Radarscope is very $$$$]
We have used WeatherBug from Earth Networks for years on all our iOS devices. I think very highly of it. They make a program called StreamerRT that is used by many Professional Agencies. EX: Fire, Police, Emergency Services etc... Weather apps can be very difficult to decide on. Personal preferences with the interface play a large role.
Hope you find one you like.
I use Weather Pro HD. This app was tested for a few months and it had the best weather prediction. See the links below (you may want to use Google translate or something as they are in German).
WunderStation by Weather Underground is another cool free app. Precise weather data from over 45,000 weather stations.
Great UI & notification center widget!
I use WunderStation too. It's one of those apps that I can't believe it's free.
Dark Sky = best weather app for iPhone. I like that it will tell me "Rain in 22 minutes", and it's usually correct. It's great for hyper-local weather and has a bunch of bells and whistles for short term forecasting as well since the last update.
I've been using NOAA, but I'm not entirely sold that it's worth paying for. It's rather basic, provides about the same or maybe less that AccuWeather or things of the like can.
I purchased it (for $2.99 I believe) because someone was talking it up and I had a gift card to use.
I will dive into a few of the ones posted previous to this, as I am a weather junkie.
I've been using the Yahoo weather app. It is well designed in pretty accurate for my area, but the notification Center which it is awfully heavy.*
By heavy I mean they use a big image as a background for the widget instead of just giving you the information.
Thank you for this! I have never heard of this app, but it looks really nice. And like Jessica Lares said, I can't believe it's free.
Edit: is only nice if it has your city.
Hi! Have you tried Magical Weather app? It displays weeks worth of temperatures in a transparent pane over a beautiful (but not overly distracting) animated background, and users can swipe to reveal an hourly forecast. I can say that it's accurate.
Re: Ipas app for weather
Had you tried "The Weather Channel"?
Till now i used only AccuWeather...
Lol! Seriously? Are you in the U.S. & what state?
The closest city to me was 20 minutes away. Okay estimate, but not great.
Might be time for you to buy a weather station then!
It seriously is crazy nuts how many people have them here.
Meteoearth is one to consider too (for the iPad).
I use Weather Bug and like it a lot. Set weather for various places we visit or have relatives. Check it 2-3 times a day. Basic but useful info.
What about AccuWeather ?
Accuweather is best for short term forecasting, but Dark Sky owns when you want to know the immediate expectations where your standing. For instance if you want to know if the rain will clear up in the next hour then Dark sky is what you want. However if you want to know the weekly outlook then I'd go with AccuWeather. Different tools for different jobs.
Hi, I use The Weather Network, and I have always found it helpful. It provides a range of viewing the forecast from a day to 2 weeks along with other details such as the map of the region of interest.
I've always liked The Weather Channel app.
I used AccuWeather for a couple of years, then switched to eWeather HD. Since iOS 8, I've added Dark Sky to all my devices too, mostly for their notification center weather widget. (That one is mostly useful if you live in a region with a lot of sporadic rain showers. LOL)
