The Weather Channel: Forecast



    The Weather Channel: Forecast's review

    Published: 2013-07-03, by .

    Standard weather prediction plus push notifications of sudden inclement conditions

    • Push notifications of sudden changes a genuinely interesting feature
    • Easy access to more information about severe conditions
    • Comprehensive weather app
    • Heavy design makes it run slowly on some systems

    "Don't let it rain on your parade"

    The weather: it's what everyone's talking about. If the weather function already installed on your device just isn't enough, the professional depth and detail provided by The Weather Channel app is for you.

    Set your home location (or have the app detect it for you), plus any further spots around the globe that you'd like to track. Swipe between screens displaying hourly, 36-hour, and weekly trackers to best fit what kind of weather data you need.

    There are a handful of exceptional features here. No more getting accidentally rained out of your picnic - the Expect Rain notification will let you know six hours in advance to anticipate inclement weather. Severe weather alerts can also reach you through push notifications, and you can easily access news videos for coverage and safety information.

    The app is slightly heavy in design, making it run a bit slowly on some systems. However, if you're interested in keeping very up-to-date with changes in the weather, the extra notification features make The Weather Channel app a cut above the standard functions included in your device.
