Description

Australia's original and best weather app sources its data from the only place that matters: the Bureau of Meteorology.

Built by locals right here in Australia, we've spent a lot of time refining and building the weather app we all want to use. So whether you need to check what it's going to be like this week on your phone, tablet or watch, we have you covered!

For those that love details though, we have some for you:
- Detailed weather information for every suburb in Australia
- Hourly temperature predictions 7 days into the future
- All the Bureau of Meteorology rain radars
- National synoptic chart
- Tide times (with offline download support)
- All the Bureau of Meteorology warnings for around the country
- Notification support if you want to know the weather at a particular time of day, or be notified of warnings as they occur
- Glance at the weather from the App icon badge, which you can set to show you the current temp, todays maximum and many more things
- 72 hours of historical information for each location
- Universal app: supports iPhone (including iPhone X), iPad and Apple Watch

We've worked long and hard over the years to bring you the weather and version 5 continues that legacy. As always we're open to your feedback and have even more amazing updates in the pipeline.

In the meantime, enjoy the weather!

What's New

Version 5.8.1

Just a quick minor update for you all.
- The watchOS app now requires v3.0 instead of v4.0. This is important if you're still on iOS 10, you'll be able to use the watch app again. Apologies for that, we had no idea the two were linked like that. And they say an old dog can't learn new tricks!
- Fixed a white section showing in the timeline view when in dark mode
- Fixed an issue with location services that might cause you to tap 'Nearby' and have no locations appear
- Wait who are you calling an old dog? I'm still young dammit. Roger just won the Aussie Open at age 36 and honestly I'm only a teency bit older.

Nice design, accurate for locals. But suffers from a critical bug.

The information is great cause it’s from the BOM. (I don’t use the BOM official app because it doesn’t have a widget). The design is clean though I find the default view too cluttered. So I turn off the Today and Radar cards. I think that should be the default setting. Advance users can turn the other cards on if they need. Or at the start, the user should be asked if they prefer basic info (just Weekly Forecast and Timeline cards) or more detailed info (all cards).

The critical bug is the app does not refresh automatically. I usually opened the app from the widget. The funny thing is that the information on the widget is up to date, but the information inside the app is not. If I have changed locations, the widget will be up to date but the app itself doesn’t refresh or recognize that my location has changed. And pulling down to refresh does not work. I have to close the app from iOS’ app switcher and relaunch it. This needs to be fixed.

I want to recommend this to fellow Aussies, but with this bug, I can’t. Your Pocket Cast app is good; your weather app can be too if you fix this quick. Fix this and I’ll give 5 stars. Otherwise, I will have to move to another app and at which point I will have to give it a 1 star rating for wasting my money:(

What an awful update and new design

I've loved this app since the minute I downloaded it. Unfortunately updates over the last six months or so have been disappointing. Not only did I need to reset every location I had installed now the design makes it difficult to see the forecast temperature as it's assumed the most important thing to people is the current temp! And to not be able to see all locations forecast temp at a glance like I used to is disappointing. I'm not convinced of its accuracy anymore either. Rainfall in my suburb used to be absolutely spot on with my rain gauge, now it rarely is. In fact the details for the next suburb over seem correct but my suburb always just corresponds with the city centre, it's like they loaded the location incorrectly as I can tell you there's certainly not been 14mm of rain at home while the suburb next door has only had 1mm. I think I'll be looking for a new app 😩

My favourite weather app

There are a bunch of weather apps out there that source info from the Bureau of Meteorology. Some seem to have more info but crowd the display with fancy graphics or make it difficult to find specifics. This app is by far my favourite as far as showing all the important info in a simple fashion. Easy to tap future days for forecasts. Detailed forecasts are sometimes dependent on the town you’ve chosen. Eg if I choose my town I get simple brief forecast but if I choose the town with airport just down the road I get detailed forecast info. I think this is just dependant on BOM info.
Easy to scroll down to radar/synoptic, tides , and the graphic that you can slide horizontally to show exact weather versus time.
Excellent app!
