10 Cool (or Hot) Mobile Weather Apps

Before I started writing my own weather app, I searched high and low for something that would fit my needs.

Ultimately I didn’t find exactly what I was looking for, and wrote my own, but you might like some of the inspirational apps I found.

Dark Sky

Dark Sky can tell you at a glance exactly when it will rain (or snow) up to an hour in advance, so you’re free to walk the dog or run out to lunch and know you’ll stay dry. You can also explore the most beautiful weather animation you’ve ever seen, both forward in time or back.


Nice Weather

A beautifully balanced view of the weather. Perfect Weather was designed for use in the United States.
