    "Whether I'm on my desktop or phone, there's only one app that I trust for the weather. The Weather Channel app also allows me to save different cities to it so I don't have to keep changing my location when I'm out of town."

    "Not the prettiest weather app I have seen but Weather Underground delivers in terms of usable information. What I like is that the app tells you what weather station it is using to feed you the information. If you tap the circle with temperature information it gives you a comparison to yesterday's weather so if you found yourself cold yesterday and it is going to be colder today you can figure out what to do."

    "There have been a lot of weather apps I've tried over the years. This one was my favorite, the UI is so clean, it's so nice. It was accurate too! It said it was going to rain, and sure enough, bam, rain. It's accurate, fast loading, doesn't look hideous, what more could I ask for from a weather app?"

    "AccuWeather gives you MINUTE by MINUTE weather at any location. I could not ask for more! Live in Chicago but traveling to Miami today. No problem. I am a weather junkie so I love this app. Heads up if you're into privacy and third party advertising, some of the reviews indicate that this app shares gps and advertising preferences. I personally think the minute by minute outweighs the advertising info. "

    Weather Timeline
    This is a simple weather app that focuses on summarising the next hour, the next 48 hours and the next week so you don't have to. Graphs, animated radar maps, extended forecasts, and even almanac data are all available here, so it's gorgeous and powerful at the same time.

    "I like how this app looks, it reminds me a lot of Windows 10 and embraces the new blocky look everyone seems to be going for. Everything I need is right there... the forecast, radar, temperature graphs, chance of precipitation. The only thing I don't like is the cost. It isn't much, but since there are plenty of weather apps out there which do the same thing for free, I found it unjustified."

    "Storm Radar is one of those apps that can easily be overlooked as just another weather app, though I must say that it has truly saved me time and money on a number of occasions. I was in Seattle this last summer of 17' and was planning a fishing trip. Summer's on the Washington coast can vary to a great degree and I had paid for a 3 days charter. I checked my app a few days before my trip and it had forecasted a bad storm coming in, I rescheduled my trip but my friend did not. He decided it would be light rain. Let me tell you, it was not light rain. It poured and he never got to fish or even be outside. The charter ended up coming back 2 days sooner and with only a partial refund. Thanks Storm Radar for giving me the information that I needed to plan around bad weather. "

    "The visual representation of the weather is outstanding and much better at conveying the level of severity of the weather than just using numbers. I gaze at the app much longer than if it were just some boring numbers being displayed."

    "Once again this is returning another app as a search result and I have not specified within my query that I'm looking for an android app. What I would actually consider to be useful results, would be links to the likes of the Weather Channel's site, or even Google's weather page. As it is right now I with this and the previous result I can't even check what the temperature is unless I get a separate device and go through an installation process."
