The app from the Weather Channel isn't as crisp and clean as the weather app that comes with the iPhone, but it is far more detailed. And really, weather apps don’t need to be sexy, they need to be useful.
The Weather Channel looks and feels like The Weather Channel from television. It is densely packed with information, but you can quickly discern what you want to know: Do I need a jacket before I step out and is it going to rain this weekend?
Along the top row, you can choose current weather or hourly, 36-hour and 10-day forecasts. You also see the chance of precipitation along with key details like humidity and wind speed. The bottom row includes a button for severe weather alerts and a video button for your area’s recorded broadcast, as if you’re watching The Weather Channel.
The Weather Channel app will sync to your current location and you can create a list of favorite locations, a handy tool if you travel frequently.
If you like details with your weather forecast, you'll want this app.
