The Best Weather App Available For Your Android!

Author : Iren Birken


WeatherPro is a great weather app that features high-quality seven day forecasts and weather reports for over two million locations worldwide. To search for a location, click on the Location tab, and then type in the name of the city, or point of interest in the search field. Click on the selected location to be taken to the weather forecast view. In addition to the two million cities available in WeatherPro's database, you can also search for 800,000 points on interest. To save a location to your list of favorites click on the star to the right of the location name.

The forecast view is the first screen that you'll see when you launch the app. The screen displays the latest weather updates for the last location you looked at. Below the city name you will find detailed weather information including temperature, wind direction and speed, and other information you might find useful. Click on the weather icon symbol to view a short written description. You can also view a detailed three hourly breakdown of the weather, and a summary of the forecast split into the night and day.

The chart view shows you the forecast in a clear, easy to read graphic format. To access the charts view, click on the charts icon on the top right corner of the main weather page.
Here you can view the graphs for each weather element, including temperature, sunshine, duration, and precipitation risk. This will help you understand how the weather will change over the coming days. GPS localization helps WeatherPro locate you, and display a list of all available weather stations near your location.

The radar and satellite views display maps of the country or continent last selected on the location tab. The radar and satellite images are updated every 15 minutes. Weather pro supports weather radar for the UK, USA, the Netherlands, Germany, Belgium, France, Scandinavia, Spain, and Switzerland. Radar enables you to see precipitation, and its intensity. Yellow indicates weak precipitation whereas orange and red tones show higher intensities. WeatherPro lets you animate the images by using the play, pause, fast forward and rewind controls. You can also scroll from side to side, and pan and zoom by clicking on the map and pinching it with two fingers.

You can personalize your set-up, the weather units displayed for temperature, wind pressure, etc from the settings menu. WeatherPro also includes several widgets that make it easier for you to customize your home screen. They all display the current weather and maximum and minimum temperatures. They only differ in the extent of the forecast that is displayed. Please note that widgets must be installed on the internal memory. This is really important as, if you install them on the external memory, WeatherPro will crash. Overall WeatherPro is one of the best weather app available for your Android.
