One of my favorite weather apps, WeatherBug, has just been updated with a number of improvements. The most obvious change in version 3.5 of the app is the revamped UI. It blends in much better with iOS 7 and is easier to navigate than previous editions. The app is also 64-bit optimized for the A7 processor in the iPhone 5s, iPad Air, and second-generation iPad mini. With severe weather season in the United States coming up soon, the app has ushered in revised Spark Alerts. As the name suggests, the system turns an iOS device into a personal lightning detector, showing up-to-date and real-time strikes. The new live lightning map shows strikes near a specific location and around the world. Another nice new feature is the Lifestyle Forecasts that identify specific weather parameters to advise users how to stay comfortable and have fun. To help keep updated on the cold and flu season, another new section shows where the most illnesses are occurring and useful facts to help minimize risk of getting infected. Finally, the app has added recent and local photo albums. A universal app designed for the iPhone/iPod touch and iPad/iPad mini, WeatherBug can be downloaded now in the App Store for free.
