Imagine that the entire globe is at your fingertips. Never before has getting weather information been as exciting and interactive as it is in the “Weather Now” application.
Amazingly beautiful 3D images of our planet draws your attention for so long that you may forget that the application has other useful features that allows you easy access to precise, global weather information.
The main features of “Weather Now” are the “home screen” and the forecast page with a unique way of scaling the charts. On the “home screen”, you can get information on the selected location such as local time and current weather with detailed weather conditions, and, of course, an incredibly beautiful three-dimensional image of the globe with realistic-looking atmosphere, the sun and the stars. You can manually turn it, increase and decrease its size, run the slow spinning animation or stop it. Installed in a cradle or dock station, the application can run as a screensaver, attracting your friends and fellows.

What's New in Version 2.5.1
Bug with weather forecast wrong temperature fixed.
Beauty and the Beast. What is wrong with the map?
I have had this app for a while and it is one of the prettiest weather apps available. Watching the earth rotate is mesmerizing. The temperature badge on it's visually appealing icon is absolutely indispensable and worth three stars in itself.
Today I opened this app to take a look at my local radar situation. What is up with that precip map???
You can zoom in a once but when you try to zoom in more it reverts back to the original miniature size. If you zoom in once, it reverts to the miniature size after a couple of seconds. (Irritating little beasty.) It does not show precipitation at all.
Is there a radar map???
If a real map with radar is something you're supposed to purchase (I have not investigated the possibility yet) it would serve them better to say so. If I were not completely committed to having a pretty icon with a temperature icon I would've deleted this app when the precipitation map turned out to be such a dud. I, like many people, don't have time to ferret out hidden features. There are too many other apps with accurate and easy to find/use features available.
I will still recommend this app for the reasonably accurate temperature badge on the beautiful icon, and the beautiful graphics. But this app isn't going to help anyone plan around a scattered-rain day.
Weather Now Review
Weather Now has a beautiful display that is very nice to look. It's display has caught the attention of others close by while in public locations who have inquired about it. The site is laid out in a manner that is easy to use and update with geographical locations I'm interested in. The forcasted weather has been very accurate. Weather alerts/warnings have been provided in a very timely manner after being issued by the NWS. I would recommend this site to everyone.
I would give it 5 stars, but...
Very nice graphics and layout. My only complaint is that it often gets stuck updating the weather information and tells me there is a connection error and to check my connection. However, other apps with Internet work fine. Restarting the app or resetting my internet connection don't help.
Having updated weather information is the whole reason I want a weather app. That's why I give it 2 stars instead of five.
