I’m surprised there isn’t a weather app by Apple! Does anyone have a favourite weather app? Maybe one that uses the top-shelf?

I use the three Weather Underground apps - Wunderground, Storm, and WunderStation - with a paid $10/year subscription to kill ads on an epichrome webapp and those 3 iOS apps. The Storm app is advertised on TWC's web portal but it's Weather Underground app in the iOS App Store - go figure? The same login works with each of the apps - I pretty much hate ads in my apps and pay for IAPs when possible.

I like the Storm app's "layer" showing driving conditions. Considering WU is owned by TWC which is owned by IBM (Powered By Watson! :eek:) - the Storm app displays the more data than the TWC app, but it's not as pretty as the TWC app IMO.

I also use WeatherSphere's NOAA Hi-Def Radar app, also with a map of driving conditions and RadarUS's Dual Radar, both paid apps. I don't go in for apps that "forecast" the weather - I stick my head out the window for that…
None of them is available for Apple Tv.

It's a real shame there isn't given how gorgeous the UI is when you ask Siri about the weather.
It is nice. Apple could do so much with this "Top Shelf" on the Apple TV, like a beautiful weather widget, HomeKit Notifications, News Bulletins, Notifications from your other devices like the Apple Watch does.

I wish there were a native app. That’d be nice. I never realized it had such a nice interface on the Apple TV via siri...they should really do more with that. And a native iPad app while they’re at it...
