A customizable and unique weather app where you only see what you want to see

Being a bit of an artist in my spare time, I've been looking at a lot of clouds lately. The most amazing thing about them is that, apart from their basic atmospheric structure, every single one of them is completely different. Unfortunately, most of the apps that track and inform us about our weather, tend not to be quite so unique. Here is one that takes its name from one of the most beautiful cloud formations up there and offers something a little more bespoke. Cirrus One has been in development for a number of years and finally gets its chance to add a bit of sunshine to the tired ...  More

A fully customizable app that will tell you when the rain will stop falling

It seems that you can't turn the news on these days without being confronted by yet another story about the weather. Whether it be extremely hot temperatures and subsequent bushfires or floods caused by cyclones, there seems to be no escape from it. For most of us, however, it's not the weather from yesterday that interests us most - it's more about what we are likely to face when we walk out of the door tomorrow morning. There are many weather apps on the market but we are still on the hunt for the perfect one. Meteovista HD is the newest of these and offers a beautifully simple, very ...  More

A weather app that is more than special

I don't usually take a whole heap of notice of weather apps, to be honest. I mean, they are literally only going to tell you a few things. How hot or cold it is, whether there is some form of precipitation and how windy it is. There's not a whole lot more you need to know. But occasionally, an app comes along that transcends basic information because of its sheer beauty and Idol Forecast is one of those. It is a customizable weather app for iOS that features the most glorious 'Disney-quality' animated graphics that change as the weather changes. It's one weather app that I will be more ...  More

It's probably the introduction of devices like smartphones and tablets that have brought about the likes of an app like Startific. iPhones and iPad have their apps lined up so neatly and precisely within the interface that we now realize how pleasant and efficient it is to have all our accessible information laid out at our fingertips via their colorful icons.

Get specific wind and weather conditions from social locals

People who don't live near the water won't get this app at all. They will take one look at it and say "why would you want an app that tells you where the wind is blowing" and "why don't they just turn on the weather channel." But surfers and water sports fans will understand. They have spent too many times driving out to surfing or sailing spots on the strength of forecasts only to find the swell they need is further down the coast. Weendy was developed by water sports fanatics and forms a social network  of communities. It's a place where you can interact with local social ...  More

Get early warning severe weather alerts pushed to multiformats

There are still people out there that believe that climate change is a myth but I think the more astute of us realize that, weather-wise, things aren't quite the way they used to be where the weather is concerned. Massive storms and tornadoes and drought across large areas of America. A couple of years ago in Australia there was a slowly moving flood that was the size of Germany and Poland put together. And we won't even talk about the Katrina floods. One of the most important things that has been learnt is that there is nothing better than an early warning of impending bad weather and ...  More

Check if it really is the hottest summer on record

Every time you pick up the paper these days there is another story about the wettest summer, the coldest winter day or the hottest overnight temperature. Climate skeptics will refute it, of course, but with floods in Australia and a drought in England you've got to wonder what on earth is going on. Personally, I don't think there is the slightest doubt that the human race is accelerating climate change but that's just a judgment call, I guess. The only way it will ever be proven is when we all go up in flames or drown in a giant flood. Voodoo Skies: Normal or Not? 2.0 is a free weather app ...  More

How far away is that storm, Tiger?

There are apparently some 25 million lightning strikes in the US every year with around 400 people struck by lightning strikes and many of them on the wide open fields of sporting events. The most dangerous place to be, of course, is on the golf course where golf addicts always seem to want to play one more hole before the weather really kicks in. Now, I was always told you count five seconds for every mile that the storm is away, after the  lightning strike and when the thunder sounds. Storm Distance Calculator works on this theory and, with a couple of clicks on your mobile, you'll ...  More
