Weatherbug - Android App Review

If you had your Android phone for more than ... say, five minutes, chances are you already looking for an app that displays the current time. All Android phones come pre-installed with some form of time app, but almost all of them are very basic and limited in features.

Today, I am going to review one of my favorite Android apps time, WeatherBug.

Look and Feel

When you first install WeatherBug, the first thing you notice is that the free version supported by ads. Using my "Sherlock Holmes' detective skills and compass of the cereal box, I conclude that there must be a paid version of the application that removes this. Of course, after a long night and taking statements from passers-by, I am confirmed (by looking at the Android Market for about 30 seconds), it is actually paid, ad-free version. More on that later.

app's layout is very simple and works well on the way. When you open the WeatherBug, you immediately get the current temperature, wind speed and direction, as well as short-term forecast. At the bottom of the page, you'll see some icons. Each of these icons will give you some detail about what is happening around you, but we're talking weather here, not the bars are the best happy hour


another icon on the left shows the 7-day forecast, which is by swiping on the screen, which will break the forecast down into different parts of the day. By swiping again, the forecast is broken down further in the hour of time.

The following icon on the right side of the map will be shown where you can enable layers. This is easily my favorite and most used screen. Here you can view the current radar, satellite, and temperature. While being able to see those nice, one of the main feature of the "Elite" version has the ability to view "moving" radar. Simply put, you can see the radar in motion, which is quite handy if you have a storm in blizini.Najbolji part about this feature is that the map provided by Google, which means that they are basically looking at Google Maps with weather radar. It was awful nice, if you are traveling and need to see if you are heading for a storm.

Moving back to the right, next to the icon looks like a camera, and it is because that is exactly what it is. By selecting it, you'll be able to navigate through the various Live weather feeds in your area. This is really nice if you want to see what is happening in the city next to you, or somewhere else nearby.

icon next break temperature, precipitation, wind, sun, humidity, and pressure in the details, but I think specifičan.Meteorolog in each of us can feel right at home with all this data.

Do you have any allergies? The next icon shows the pollen count and is accompanied by a national pollen map that shows where the highest pollen counts were observed.

After that, there is an icon that shows the film reel video at the national weather forecast. If you missed your local weather forecast television news, fret no more, because it is built right in.

In addition to the Advisory Committee. Any weather alerts or warnings for your area are presented here. If you prefer, you can set the WeatherBug notify you if there are warnings in your area, so you do not have to check this screen too often.

Last but not least is the help section. Here are answers to common questions or problems in the app.

What I like about this app

WeatherBug is chocked full of information. Because there are so many things, the interface is very organized. Small applications that you feel overwhelmed by the amount of data at your fingertips, but WeatherBug makes you feel like you've been using it for years.

What could be better

My favorite bar have with this application is a live camera. While they May prove useful for some people, you can not select the camera in a particular area, a camera themselves are not very clear.

Understandably, the clarity of the camera is not the responsibility of the individual creators WeatherBug, but a little more customization selecting the camera would be nice.

Elite version of the

As stated earlier, free version of WeatherBug's ad-supported. Some of you May not be bothered by ads, but personally, I have a lot of information to be seen, and I do not want it ruined by ads. Also mentioned earlier, animated radar maps are a feature elite version. This is a must-have for me, because there is very little time applications out there that offer this feature, and gives so much more information too. Also, the elite version of some pretty nice clanak.Elita widget (actually called that) is a radar map of your home-screen, so if you want to see the radar at first sight, not even open app. Besides, you're getting all this for a whole two dollars. If you can spare two U.S. dollars for the terrible weather app, what do you do with a smartphone?


WeatherBug is a pretty easy time of my app of choice. Being somewhat a perfectionist, I have tried almost every weather app out there, even many paid ones. With great features like an animated map (Elite), the temperature of the layers, warnings, pollen count, detailed forecasts and more to the weather app sitting on top of the mountain, and tells all the other applications that time forth.

WeatherBug is available on Android Market for free. (Ad supported) you can buy the Elite version for $ 2.00, which will give you more options, not ads.
