It would be hard to imagine a more comprehensive, informative and beautiful iOS application than this one. Not only does EarthBuzz Weather look like a million dollars but it is filled with real-time satellite data on weather conditions worldwide. It also looks like it was made for iPad - the perfect platform to view it. While there has been a plethora of weather apps made available it's difficult to imagine one better than this unique free 3D masterpiece that, unlike many of the others, backs up its good looks with meaningful weather data.
 
EarthBuzz is an interactive social weather and geography application for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch that is, without doubt, the most amazing 3D weather app for iPad. It offers an animated mash-up of real time satellite data, earthquakes, hurricanes, volcanoes, current weather conditions as well as your Facebook and Twitter friends. Strangely though, while it is one of the highest rated weather apps for iPad on the iTunes App Store, this hidden gem is also one of the most obscure. EarthBuzz Weather is a completely unique app that blends a journey of earth discovery with social networking data and near real-time animated satellite clouds, current weather conditions, weather forecasts and global geological events. Check the weather where your friends and loved ones live on a beautifully rendered 3D globe featuring a 160 megapixel rendition of NASA’s Blue Marble Earth Imagery with an overlay of live satellite clouds. View an animation of the last 8 hours of cloud activity updated at hourly intervals. EarthBuzz Weather integrates with Twitter and Facebook and allows you to check in, tweet and post about important earth events such as earthquakes, hurricanes and volcanoes. On the technology side, EarthBuzz engine uses a sophisticated tiling technique innovated by NASA. Instead of using rectangular tiles in Mercator projection, like other Earth software, the EarthBuzz Engine uses a technique known as Tessellated Octahedral Tiling. In addition EarthBuzz adds the capability to view animated overlays of real-time data making it quite unique in terms of a combination of virtual earth software and weather application. EarthBuzz Weather will appeal to weather buffs, data visualization and 3D enthusiasts, pilots, teachers, travellers and anybody with an interest in our beautiful planet. You will truly love this app and it is a great way to show off the awesome GPU power of the latest iPad 4th gen and iPad Mini.
 
Probably the most amazing thing about EarthBuzz Weather is that its substance really does do justice to the beautifully striking user interface. It features a very high tech virtual earth engine and adds an interactive visual element with current weather conditions, including real-time animated cloud activity making it not only informative but also very useful. It is becoming more and more obvious that the iDevice is taking pole position in our information gathering in the 21st Century and EarthBuzz Weather places itself as being, not only one of the best and most comprehensive weather apps for iPad, but also as one of the best and most essential apps out there, full stop.
