It would be easy for AccuWeather to rest on their laurels with their app, which is hyper-popular with over ten million downloads from Google Play. However, with version 3.x of their app, they’ve recreated to be a much better experience for Android users. First off, the app is now conforming to Android design guidelines laid out by Google, so the app looks and feels native to Android. This means that it uses the Holo theme and is an incredibly smooth experience, while still providing extremely detailed weather information, from hourly and daily temperature predictions with graphs, maps, and weather update videos that relate to a user’s current location. There’s the ability to easily add multiple locations as well. The app is also set up to be optimized for a variety of devices, including the high-resolution Nexus 10. The 3.x version of the app is available now on Google Play for both the free version of AccuWeather and the paid AccuWeather Platinum.
