Weather Underground App Now Available for Android and iOS

Android/iOS: Weather Underground was the first internet weather site and collects data from 22,000+ local neighborhood stations; now you can get that awesome weather reporting on your mobile device.

Weather Underground is a fantastic weather reporting site that taps into a vast network of local weather stations to report up-to-date and accurate weather. Rather than rely on an hour old update from an airport 30 miles away, Weather Underground gives you a recently updated average from all the weather stations scattered around you–some of the stations update as frequently as every 2.5 seconds.

Reports include current temperature, “feels like” temperature with the wind chill factored in, hourly and 7-day forecasts, as well as wind speed and direction, humidity, dew point, visibility, air pressure, radar readouts, and weather warnings.

    Nice! Seems legit!

    I wish they also had Beaufort as wind unit measurement though.

    I loaded this app to my Toshiba “Thrive” tablet, and while it works well to report the weather “…around my location…”, it ABSOLUTELY REFUSES to display in Landscape mode and persists in staying in Portrait mode!

    I’m thinking about deleting it and going to other weather reporting apps (like WeatherBee).

    Android version is crashy and doesn’t work properly when set to metric (still displays half the data in American units). Lasted about 8 minutes on my phone. Best weather app I’ve ever found is still a folder of bookmarks.

    Also on iPhone the app loads an “Ad Sheet” process that still stays on even when you close the app :(
