The overall theme of The Weather Channel app is bright with a consistent amount of Weather Channel blue. Fortunately the app also performs well. The app shares a similar design to the Google Play Store with scrolling tabs for "radar," "now," "videos," and "forecast." The scrolling tabs are very fluid and each tab is quick to load. See More
The Weather Channel app includes banner advertisements like most weather applications but unlike other applications that let you pay a dollar or two to remove them, The Weather Channel forces them on you. Even worse is that they are positioned conveniently at the bottom of the application right where you are likely to accidentally open them. See More
The Weather Channel application allows you to input a starting point and destination on a radar map and then predict if you will encounter any type of storms along the route. The feature needs work and doesn't always work properly but the idea is promising if improved. See More
One of the advantages of Yahoo Weather is that the design is not so loaded with information when you open it that it is overwhelming. If your just interested in if it is going to rain today Yahoo will provide you that at a glance but it still provides all the details when you scroll down. See More
Yahoo Weather uses photos of locations in weather conditions from actual Flickr users. This inclusion makes Yahoo Weather as great to look at as it is to use. If you want more information about the photo the author's Flickr name is in the bottom right corner. See More
Once loaded the first thing the weather app does is present the user with temperature and conditions of saved places. If more information is needed, clicking on one of the places will give information about rain, sunset times, wind and give an overview of the upcoming week with possibility to go even deeper and get more information about each day hour by hour. All information is presented in a logical, straightforward manner with a Material Design inspired look. See More
AccuWeather uses Google's suggested app structure for displaying categories with scrolling tabs similar to the Play Store for "Locations," "Now," and "Hourly" etc. The UI is very clean and functional but not as visually appealing as other weather application such as Yahoo Weather. See More
