Weathertron is a live infographic of the entire day’s weather. See exactly what to expect from every hour of the day — clouds, rain, snow, and temps — on one screen. Unlike most apps, it's powered by 16 different weather data sources, statistically aggregated and weighted, so you always have the most accurate results for your location.
Quickly tell if you should wear a sweater this morning, or if your softball game will be rained out tonight. Weathertron makes it dead simple to plan your whole day around the weather.

My Favorite Weather App
It provides an easy-to-comprehend, quick view of today’s weather, along with the same view for tomorrow. Then you get a 7-day forecast without extra details that would create clutter. If you want an app to give you dew points and all the weather nerd data, use the Weather Underground app (which I also use). But WeatherTron is very good at being that fast, go-to app for checking in on current conditions and the forecast. Because of the visual layout, I basically have an idea of the entire day at a glance, including precipitation chances, cloud cover, and temperature. I open this app probably 4-5 times a day, almost obsessively. :)
And after reading the reviews here, I can say that I’ve seen no accuracy problems with it.
Could be better
Open up the app and it takes me thru the help routine. I have to tap the screen a bunch of times to finally get to the main screen. Then there is no default city but you have to tap current location.
Then wait while it searches. Then you are finally able to see your weather. Not worth opening as a lot easier with other weather apps.
Terribly inaccurate, over and over again
Says 'heavy rain' when it's only cloudy. Says 'rain' when there is not a cloud in the sky. The app's layout is very pretty and I want very much for this app to be my 'go to'. However, I keep re-downloading it every new update and then deleting it all the same. whatever they use for their information is horrible. I'm truly sorry because the app is attractive, but not worth any money.
