WeatherBug allows you to find out everything about the weather whenever and wherever you are. The useful mobile app detects your location, takes current data from your nearest weather station and then shows it on your smartphone. All these actions are performed automatically.

With WeatherBug, you’ll be aware not only of current, highest and the lowest temperature of the day but the wind speed and direction, rainfall, wind chill, dew point, pressure and humidity. Search for areas and add them to the app so that you flick through the conditions in several locations with a quick tap.

There’s a helpful maps feature which displays the weather through the use of overlays. Just choose which kind of data it shows from Radar, Satellite or Temperature. You can zoom the maps in and out by using magnifying glass icons. Video reports and updated images of the weather conditions are impressive features, too, though, they are not available in all the areas.

You won’t have problems with customizing because there are various options and settings. Simply change, for example, temperature notifications or units of measurements.

Design 10/10

The design is slick, organized and offers animated transitions when you swipe left or right. The main interface which represents the current weather and the forecast for the day is the same for Android and iOS. Android devices show a 5-day forecast. At the bottom, you’ll see several icons: Camera, Conditions, 7-day weather forecast, Maps, and Video. There are also additional icons to get fast weather alerts, some help, and more information.

The iOS layout labels each icon and liquidates some of the Android version guesswork. WeatherBug integrates itself into the notification tray if you agree to background updates. You'll see the temperature in the top bar. After opening the notification area, you’ll notice an abbreviated forecast version. It displays the current temperature and the expected high or low that depends on the hour of the day. Selecting the weather icon in the notification tray takes you directly into the app.

Usability 10/10

Customize your forecasts by the wind — MPH, KPH, Knots or MPS, temperature — Fahrenheit or Celsius, pressure units — inches and millibars. Choose the most convenient language: English, Spanish or Portuguese. You can find out the local weather conditions, see the weather map and radar.

WeatherBug makes you ready for severe weather conditions. There are 18 animated maps, so you get various options on what forecasts you have to see and over 2.6 m locations around the world.

Choose the forecasts for all your daily activities like sports games, golf, lawn care, outdoors and so on. See current weather conditions and receive alerts in the chosen locations. Check hurricanes using satellite and radar and see the current hurricane forecasts.

Cross-platform use 7/10

WeatherBug is a popular weather app available on almost every mobile platform. It requires iOS 8.0 or later. WeatherBug is compatible with Android, but it varies with device.

In-app purchases

    My computer had to be restored and I lost my weatherbug program. When I tried to download it on the computer, it said it had been moved. How can I get my desktop program back?
