The best weather apps for iPhone and iPad

Michael Simon | Jan. 28, 2015
Of all the different kinds of apps that I regularly use on my iPhone, I probably spend the least amount of time with weather ones. That's not to say I don't like them, quite the contrary: I've downloaded so many of them over the years, I could probably go a year without needing to open the same one twice. But no matter which one I'm using, my time with it is relatively brief--I check the temperature, maybe scan the forecast, and close.

Take a few bucks out of your wallet and your options will greatly expand. For minimalists, there's Shade ($2), which boils the forecast down to a mélange of simple colors and lines in a surprisingly cogent UI. 

Another personal favorite is Weather Line ($4), which offers a clean and simple interface that plots temperatures and precipitation on an interactive graph to illustrate daily, weekly and monthly trends.

Finally, I would be remiss if I didn't mention Authentic Weather ($1). Easily the most irreverent weather app on any platform, it eschews everything about forecasting and plainly tells you what's going on outside using, shall we say, rather colorful language. You could always look out a window to get the same results, but Authentic's naughty attitude is way more fun.
