A lot of iPhone and iPod Touch users ( including me ) hate the weather app in the iPhone OS and envy the one in HTC phones. Why? Because the HTC app just looks way better than what the weather app offers in the iPhone. Not only that, the information provided isn’t detailed enough. Well, worry not. TAPTAP mobile have developed an application called World Weather, for the iPhone that actually outshines the HTC weather app and it’s available in the App Store for just $0.99!
The UI on this app is awesome. Detailed and realistic animations just improve the experience multiple times. To top it off, these animations are realtime and change according to the weather information. You can actually see the animations changing with the weather information if you use the app long enough.
The amount of weather information provided is good as well and includes sunrise and sunset times, wind speed and direction, humidity, pressure, moon phase and much more. Upon tilting the device to landscape mode, the apps shows the forecast for a week. Check out the video below to see the animations in action:
Here’s a list of features that World Weather provides:
One week weather forecast information (in landscape mode) for any chosen location in your list. Realtime weather conditions (in vertical mode) comes along with:
* Amazing, realistic weather animation
* Short description
* Temperature (current, high, low)
* Wind (speed, direction)
* Dew Point
* Moon phase
World Weather current conditions information available in English system units (°F, mph, in., miles) and Metric system units (°C, m/s, hPa, km).
If you’re an iPhone or iPod Touch user, this is a must have app for the weather junkies in you. No longer will your HTC phone owning friends laugh at you when you pull out your iPhone to check weather and open up that lousy app. For $0.99, World Weather is a keeper!
