Updated Weather Underground App Features New Design, Crowdsourced Data And More
With a big winter storm hitting a large swath of the United States, the Weather Underground app for the iPhone has just received a timely update to version 3.0. First up, the app offers a totally redesigned UI that fits in very nicely with iOS 7. The aging, somewhat claustrophobic visuals of previous versions have been replaced with a nice amount of white space and bright colors. Instead of having to deal with a navigation bar on the bottom of the app, a persistent menu sidebar makes it much easier to find exactly what you’re looking for. And to help improve the data, app users can also submit their local weather conditions to help verify Weather Underground’s data. Those crowdsourced reports are also available to view on the map page. Definitely my favorite feature in the new version is the landscape mode that allows weather nerds like me to get a better perspective on the radar picture or whatever else in the app. The interactive graphs that display data trends including history and forecasts are also very nicely designed. Finally, the update brings more weather webcams, including time lapse videos, along with access to other weather-related videos. Weather Underground is designed for the iPhone/iPod touch and can be downloaded now in the App Store for free. With an in-app purchase of $1.99, users can disable all ads for one year.
