Check the Weather is designed from the ground up to provide fast, clear and beautiful weather data. Rather than squashing features into a crowded interface Check the Weather provides a streamlined dashboard with easy access to advanced forecast details. Simply swipe left, right or up to see more. Up to the minute accuracy and speed are baked right in.
Displays current conditions, hazardous weather alerts, hourly and extended forecasts. For users within the United States it also shows a live doppler weather radar map and Dark Sky powered short term precipitation forecasts.
What's New in Version 1.5.2
Minor Bug Fixes to the weather display.
Used to be accurate...
I'm not sure what happened with this app, but it is no longer accurate at all. It tends to double or triple the chance of weather that yahoo or weather channel both predict, and often will show wildly different forecasts every time you check this app. The radar image also is sometimes animated. Sometimes loads. Sometimes just does whatever it wants.
On the plus side, the design is pleasing, the rain prediction for the immediate future by dark sky is usually pretty accurate (but only useful for the next hour or so) and the app is mostly stable (less the annoying radar bugs).
Easy access to the weather information I need - when it works
I really like the design of Check the Weather. Everything I need is at most one swipe away and the layout means that I can pick out what’s important to me quickly. The look is clean and elegant. One caveat: it doesn’t currently work for me unless I have a cell connection (using WiFi alone causes it to hang). I hope that this bug is fixed soon so that I can go back to using this as my only weather app.
Helpful and Straightforward
Clean presentation of data makes it easy to get a sense of the conditions now, what trajectory conditions have been on, and what the rest of the week is going to look like. Additional layers of detail like radar imagery are available, but don’t get in the way when they’re not wanted.
Use other products from this company and their support has always been very personable and helpful.
