Mother Nature is fickle. One minute she is all sunshine and birds chirpin’, the next she is raging rain storms and tornadoes. To keep tabs on what she is up to, this week will showcase 3 weather apps for Android. One is a weather widget and the other two apps have more specific uses.
RadarNow! is a really great application for the outdoorsy people who don’t really need to know the temperature so much as what the precipitation is doing. Need to know if that big storm will roll right over the soccer game? RadarNow! is the perfect Android weather radar app for that.
Simple Weather Alert
I haven’t had the pleasure of going through an earthquake of any magnitude but not a Spring goes by when a tornado touches down near where ever I am. Since I am not a regular radio listener or television watcher, getting notified of impending weather is a challenge. Simple Weather Alert is a great app to have as a warning system. Notifications come across for all types of bad weather. Be safe knowing Simple Weather Alert monitors the official National Weather Service alerts for the area. The new warnings appear on the status bar.
GO Weather EX
The GO Dev team make some super awesome apps. The GO Weather EX widget is no different. Like all of the other GO applications, the GO Weather EX widget can be customized with different themes. Like a good weather widget, both the current conditions and forecast are easily accessible. As the weather changes, so does the background of the widget.
