On my iPhone/Android…Forecast.io weather information

Forecast 2Forecast 1Forecast 3

Forecast.io

Forecast.io is another great looking weather "app" that really isn't an app at all, but rather a web app that works on nearly any platform including your desktop browser, iPhone and iPad and Android tablets.

The folks at Forecast.io obviously spent a lot of time on the design of this app, as it is quickly becoming one of my favorite sources for weather information. It is easy on the eyes and conveys a lot of information in a very clear fashion. I especially like the next hour/next 24 hour weather descriptions, which can help you make better decisions without delving into the detail of the weather report. I also find that the weather radar presentation is better than most other apps and sites on the market. The animation is clear and smooth and really gives you a great indication of what is happening. I only wish I could zoom in a little further like I can with WeatherUnderground.
