Weather Apps

Chatting about the weather is most people’s default icebreaker, so isn’t it nice that there are weather apps you can use to make sure you always know what you’re talking about?

When deciding on the right weather app for you, it all comes down to how specific you want your meteorology information to be. There are weather apps that keep it simple (all you want to know is the temp), and for the true weather connoisseur, there are weather apps with all the bells and whistles. Find apps that give you hourly forecasts that’ll help you plan your day or 15-day forecasts, handy when prepping for vacations, business trips and outdoor activities. Download weather apps that tell you humidity and wind chill, or the more detailed apps that give you the dew point, visibility, pressure, air quality and pollen count.

If weather maps are a deal breaker for you, choose between apps with straightforward weather maps that stick to the facts, or select apps with animated, visually arresting weather maps—you can even check out the Doppler radar. For the snow bunny or ski bum, check out the weather apps with snow reports and snowfall tracking on your favorite slopes.

No matter how you like your weather reports, The Recapp has a weather app for you. Check out our reviews and ratings and be sure to let us know if you agree by adding your own reviews of weather apps you’ve tried.
