(App Review) The Weather Channel – A Free Weather Application

On May 28, 2011

One of the most sought information on a smartphone is the weather. This app is available for iPhone and came with at least one preinstalled Maps application, but when you want to rely on information, a check of several sources. We recommend the free application from The Weather Channel.

Weather forecasts are the most extensive and accurate, and their alerting system will be on your taste. The application has widgets (small or large format) and interactive maps. Directly in the status bar can display weather for the selected location as Home.

When adding a widget, the user will name the selected location, setting the tone, vibrating alert and a phone option. It will select the desired level of warning: Most Severe, Moderate Severe, Alerts All or none. The user will receive the appropriate weather reports according to its selection.

To add a new location you need to enter in “My Places” and click on “Add a place” at the top of the screen. You can search by city, zip code (for some countries) or by places such as the Eiffel Tower, Tower of London, the Grand Canyon. More locations may be added, but only 10 will be displayed.
