Four weather apps, four radar experiences

Other than checking the temperature or the forecast, I often use the radar function of weather apps. I like seeing radar in motion, so I can guesstimate what's going to happen in the future. In the video below, I tried the radar experience in four apps: The Weather Channel, Weatherbug, Yahoo...

Dark Sky's iOS 7 update has it swinging with the big dogs

Dark Sky used to be the app that you checked if you wanted to be sure a spontaneous rain cloud wouldn't ruin your impromptu bike ride, but when it came to forecasts, it had essentially nothing to offer. Now, as the app enters version 4.0, things have changed drastically. Dark Sky's classic...

Why Dark Sky 'sold out' with a full-featured weather app, and why it's not charging for the upgrade

Yesterday, a weather app landed on the App Store and entered a crowded pool with the likes of Yahoo and The Weather Channel. What makes the app particularly unique -- and why you won't find it on any "New Release" list -- is that it's being released as an update to an existing app. It's called...

Review: MeteoEarth brings detailed weather info to your Mac

Daily iPhone App: Radar Cast helps you stay on top of the weather

I live in Maine, which means I get the sun before everyone else, and the weather usually later. This past week is a great example. Winter storm Dion has allowed me to track the storm's progress as it made its way from the panhandle of Texas all the way to the easternmost part of my home state. My...

Review: MoWeather - Forecast and Temperature Planner

I finally found a weather app that isn't just more of the same. MoWeather (free) for iOS is a graphically compelling weather app with all the usual stuff you want to see, along with a 15-day forecast. The weather background is nicely animated, like the Apple weather app, and it does my favorite...

BBC Weather app comes to iPad

Back in June the BBC released its first weather app for iPhone. It got off to rave reviews, but many bemoaned the lack of iPad support. But no longer, as today the BBC has introduced version 1.1 of BBC Weather with full support for the iPad. In addition to iPad support, the new BBC Weather app...

Sky Live is a clever, but flawed astronomy program

Sky Live is the latest app from Vito Technology, the people who gave us the highly praised Star Walk app. Sky Live is a (mostly) free app that will tell you if your local skies will be good for stargazing.

iOS 7: Weather app is easy on the eyes, still lacking features

Another app that received a major overhaul in iOS 7 was the Weather app. The card-style design of the app has been stripped away, leaving in its place a lovely translucent UI with weather images in the background. It's about time Apple updated Weather, as the basic, boxy design has been around...
