Top 5 Free Weather Apps For your iPhone

One topic all Canadians talk about is the weather and to have a good conversation you need to know the forecast. To help  you stay up to date with the latest weather changes, here are my top 5 Free Weather Apps for your iPhone based in my experience with them.

Yahoo! Weather

Yahoo! Weather has all the weather information you need, presented beautifully. Everything from the current temperature to a weather radar are available and there are no in-app purchases to fill-in missing information or features. Yahoo! Weather is also the only app on this list that doesn’t have ads.

iTunes

The Weather Network

Though the UI isn’t pretty, it’s well organized and has all the information from The Weather Network website, including a video of the recent forecast.

SkyMotion

SkyMotion does not have a detailed weather forecast, but the information it does have is updated every 5 minutes and presented clearly. You can also send SkyMotion weather status updates, such as Partly Cloudy or Snow, by tapping on the eye icon.

Weather On

Weather On looks cool. Each piece of information has its own box and they fly around as you move from page to page. It also posts quotes from famous people, which have nothing to do with the weather, but it’s something you won’t find in other weather apps.

Intellicast

If you like watching weather radars Intellicast has a great one on its main page, which also adds a wow factor when you open Intellicast and see a large storm system. If you want to see their professional grade storm tracking  tools or a boating centric forecast you can buy a 6 month subscription with an in-app purchase.

    You forgot Atmospherique.

    apple’s native weather app dropped the ball as the yahoo weather one is quite clean and informative, at least m.mayer did something right.

    A couple of favourites to add to the list are Degrees, which gets its information from Environment Canada and AeroWeather, which sources the same information pilots use for their flight planning. Living Earth, available for Mac and iOS, is another slick app that includes weather information which comes courtesy of Weather Underground.

    I use Celsius; it pulls environment canada data and has a clean, simple interface.

    Those are all crap. The Weather Channel is the best weather app, bar none.

    Yahoo Weather is ALWAYS wrong!

    The one thing I don’t like about the Yahoo Weather app is that it does not show how much precipitation or snow is expected…Unless I’ve completely missed where this is in the Yahoo app, I have to switch back to Weather Network to get it.
