AccuWeather.com is joining the “iPhone fray” for all those who need more detailed weather information than iPhone’s built-in app provides.
As expected, AccuWeather’s app goes well beyond basic weather featuring such things as:
- Location-aware info, limiting the need to enter user locations
- Animated, user-centric radar and satellite
- 5-day local forecasts with high and low temperatures and sky conditions for day and night
- Hour-by-hour forecasts
- Weather videos including national, regional, and local forecasts as well as breaking weather news, lifestyle weather, and several other entertaining and informative choices
- Health weather — including the UV, air quality, Arthritis Index, and Flu Index
- WeatherRisc graphs, which show probability of severe weather conditions over the next 8 hours
And that’s about it. As I said AccuWeather.com is a free app, and you can grab it from here (iTunes link).
