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.

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 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.

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.
