1Weather Is a Detailed and Free Weather App for Android

Android: If you’ve been underwhelmed with the weather apps in the Android Market, 1Weather is feature packed, free, and definitely worth checking out.

1Weather stuffs an enormous amount of data into a single application. Using it you can check the current weather, future forecast, the high/low temp, probability of precipitation, humidity, wind speed, weather warnings, the weather radar, sun rise/set, moon rise/set, and even tap into local tweets about the weather in your area.

It seems like all that information would be overwhelming on a little smartphone screen but 1weather does a great job organizing everything and makes heavy use of icons to help quickly convey meaning without forcing you to read lots of tiny text.

Hit up the link below to check out additional screenshots and grab a copy for your phone. 1Weather is free, requires Android 2.1+.

    This is the best weather app I have installed so far. Nice find! Don’t forget to check out the widget this app adds as well.

    I have an Android Toshiba “Thrive” tablet and I cannot find this app ANYWHERE in “Android Market” or “Best Apps” (from MakeUseOf.com) or “AppBrain App Market”. Where available, I’ve even tried using a search function to try to find it, but so far, no luck!

    I’d REALLY like to have this app. How or Where can I download/install it?

    Only available in the US? I can’t download it either…but I’ve sent an email to the devs asking about it.

    @Karl K,
    I just downloaded this app on my droid and grabbed the .apk and threw it on dropbox if you want it:

    One of the top weather programs that I have seen so far, has a lot of very good information. Thanks Darryl

    Says not compatible with the HP TouchDroid running ICS – weak sauce developers.
