Top 5 best weather apps for iPhone users

Find top 5 best free weather apps for iPhone users to conquer over weather.
The weather is one among the worst things that everyone have to know about, because it can hamper your day planning’s. Here you will find most handful weather apps for iPhone which enables you to know the condition of weather in your area. Those apps have simple interface and very easy to use.

The Weather Channel App


The Weather Channel is thought to be the most popular weather app for iPhone within the iTunes App Store. Because the Weather Channel app  is completely free and it is created by a super popular weather company which has a pretty useful website along with 24/7 TV networks on cable channel.

This app is designed to provide you everything about weather including current temperature and hour by hour weather forecast.
The Weather Channel app enables you to view the radar maps at a glance that tells you where it will be going to snow or rain. This weather app also indicates about various warnings to indicate thunderstorm or tornado.

Yahoo Weather App

Yahoo Weather App is the nice & cool looking weather app available in iTunes App Store. I place it in the second position, because it does not provide you as many information as Weather Channel App. 

However it provides you the basics weather notification or information that you need to know such as current temperature, hour by hour weather forecast and also a pretty simple radar map.

Dark Sky App

One among the best unique weather apps for iPhone is Dark Sky weather app. Dark Sky App is designed for iPhone users to simply discover if it is snowing or raining outside, rather than providing you the whole set of information’s. This app provides the straightforward forecast like 'it is going to rain within 10 minutes'.

This weather app also provides information’s similar to other weather app such as hour by hour weather forecast, the instant of raining or snowing within day, a simple but elegant radar map, etc. The major constraints of this app are that it is not free but available at 3.99$.

Weather Underground App

Weather Underground App uses the crowd sourcing for its weather information’s. Weather Undergrounds App is nearly a unique method for gathering data of weather, but works fine. Most of the weather stations provide the weather forecast based on the weather data received form couple of spots in a city. As a result the weather forecast may not be 100 percent accurate. 

But in the case of Weather Underground App, it receives information from more than 33,000 weather stations throughout the city. So the possibility of getting wrong weather information is reduced.

Radar Scope App

If you are really quite weather geek, then the applications mentioned above may not be what you are searching for as far as obtaining advanced weather data. For this reason Radar Scope exists.
Radar Scope application provides the information’s which your meteorologists are searching. It gives you the information about devastating thunderstorms and tornado. 

It gives the high resolution radar data which is very useful for weather expert. This app is also not freely available. It will cost you about $9.99 but you will get most advanced weather information.
