AppAdvice has once again teamed up with Apalon in order to offer you a chance to win one of five promo codes for Weather Live ($0.99) for iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch. Rightfully showcased in our Best Weather Apps for iPhone and Best Weather Apps for iPad AppGuides, "Weather Live manages the impressive feat of displaying all weather information on one screen in a readable fashion and using a beautiful, weather-appropriate animated background." Even with a good starting point, Weather Lives maintains a positive reputation thanks to regular improvements. One of the more significant updates was v1.6 in June, adding radar, weather maps, iPad Retina display support, notifications, and more. Another substantial release was v1.9, which included a sixth display mode, enhancements to the Widget and Text-Only layouts, an easy gifting options, as well as performance and stability improvements. A main feature of Weather Live, the different layouts exist to satisfy almost every preference possible. The choices consist of four Widget, one Text-Only, and now Circle View. In this new view, the circle is a large wind rose with the temperature, sky condition, day and time, humidity, and precipitation levels contained within. In addition, the forecast is shown along the bottom of the screen. Part of every layout is the Weather Live toolbar fastened to the top of the screen that displays location and provides access to weather maps and settings. The map is displayed in full screen on iPhone and as a semi-transparent edge popover window on iPad with playback controls and a map type selection menu button. The map choices include clouds, radar, satellite, and rain. As for the final level of convenience, Weather Live also offers the option for an app icon badge, alert notifications, and a secondary data source.
