I’ve used this web app forever and have never written about it so I thought I’d share it with you if you haven’t heard of it. I think it’s the best weather app I’ve seen so far. I’m biased because I use Weather Underground’s full site on my computer. Weather Underground for the iPhone is easy to get to, just go to i.wund.com.
Once there you can type in a city or zip in the search box and find your city.
Once you find it, you can tap on the plus sign in Safari and add it to your home screen. I named mine Underground but weather would work well too. You could even do a few for different cities and name them the city.
The page is broken up into 4 sections: Current, Radar, Forecast & Warnings. Current shows you all kinds of info like conditions, temperature, humidity, wind, even sunrise and sunset.
My favorite is the Radar section. Most important, it allows for animation. It also has three zoom options from Local to Region. There’s even a Severe Weather Overlay.
The Forecast is a list of the next 7 days with icons describing the weather and a small text description. It usually includes sunny or cloudy, precipitation percentage, temperature, wind, and night conditions.
Finally there is a warning section for some areas. This includes tornadoes, floods, hurricanes, etc.
Overall, I think this is the best weather application and runs quick even on slow connections. Best of all, it’s free! Please share your favorite weather app or web app. I’d love to hear what everyone uses to check the weather!
