Paradigm breaking weather app
What a great way to look at one's weather. Talk about the big picture view.
It took me a while to fully appreciate what this app does. All other weather apps are constrained by the top down approach. Someone tells you about conditions. On this app you have access to the whole picture and can view temperature, pressure, wind, clouds all at once. It becomes very easy to see at a glance what it's going to be like today and what's coming--anywhere in the world. No more filling in the search box.
I agree with the (minor) issue with weather box. I would like to be able to make it larger but that is, a pretty minor, issue that simply makes it a little difficult to see the hour by hour conditions.
This app allows you to see both the trees (the weather variables) and the forest (the weather) this is for you.
Good weather information
Meteogram needs to be larger. Your finger tip covers most of it. It aways opens to my location even when that feature is not enabled. Only difference is that it adds the pin. It would be nice if Weathermap+ remembered the screen location and zoom level when exiting app and starting it back up. Still a very good, easy to use weather app. Love the continuous horizontal scrolling.
Needs a cloud cover overlay button. Needs to allow mixing and matching what overlays you want to use in addition to the 'All overlays' option.
Plus, how often does it update? ...or does it? Only at startup? ...or does it do that automatically? If so, how often. I do not see a update/refresh button.
Would it be possible to animate the overlays? Being on a world scale I could see where that might not be practicable.
Real time forecast
I orally rely on this forecasting app. Most apps simply indicate what the conditions will be but with this app you can see the conditions mapped hours and days ahead. I see why and how long the skies are sunny or whether the rain band will be short and intense or long and persistent. Phenomenal!
