What is the best weather app for you? In this list, we’ve compiled a selection of the best weather apps for Android and iOS.

No longer need to wait for the news to know the weather conditions in your region, just unlock the screen of the phone. Thanks to the weather apps, your smartphone is basically the most modern weather station in the world. Just an Internet connection for you to know if it’s getting cold or hot in Barcelona right now.

The best weather apps for Android and iOS

AccuWeather

With over 100 million downloads, the “AccuWeather” app is the most popular weather service for Android. In fact, I can say it’s one of the best ways to check the weather forecast on the phone.

After you share your location, you’ll see custom weather data taken directly from the Global Forecast System (GFS). The design of the application is clean and very well done, always presenting the most relevant information in the foreground.

After the redesign in 2020, AccuWeather became even more modern/© AccuWeather/Screenshot:

AccuWeather can handle a lot of data. This includes information on weather, air quality, allergy sufferers, thermal sensation, hurricanes and a rain radar. There is also a Widget, in which you can choose between the light and dark versions. AccuWeather is free, but offers occasional ads. The ad-free version costs $47.99 per year.

Google Assistant or Siri

One of the simplest and most reliable weather apps ever come pre-installed on your phone. I’m talking about Google Assistant and Siri, able to provide up-to-date weather information at the touch of a button or voice command.

To activate the service just give the voice command “Ok Google, what is the weather forecast for today?” or “Hey Siri, what is the temperature in Sao Paulo now?”.

With this, you will get an overview of the weather situation including the probability of rain and the forecast for the next few hours. With other commands like “How will the weather be this week?” or “Do I need an umbrella today?” you can try a more natural conversation with both assistants?

The information offered by Google’s virtual assistant is obtained via Weather.com. Apple offers its own weather app natively, from which Siri extracts the information. Because the Google Assistant and Siri are so well integrated into the operating system, you can access predictions from anywhere.

However, a Widget has been missing on Android since Google separated its news service and weather. If you are specifically looking for a widget, we recommend another app, or wait for Android 12, when we will have new widgets available for various Big G services.

Climate & Radar

With Weather & Radar you’ll get a weather app and a weather-related news feed. Almost like a social network, the Clima & Radar app also offers the option to share photos with overlapping information and links to more information. In addition, by downloading the Weather & Radar, you will have weather forecasts, rain radar, wind radar and temperature radar.

One of the critical points of Climate and Radar are advertising. However, like AccuWeather, you can subscribe, which costs $2.90 per month or $15.90 per year. In each case, you can test the service for free for 14 days.

Geometric Weather for Android

This tip goes only to those who own an Android smartphone. The “Geometric Weather” app shows current information from the “AccuWeather.com” service without any advertising. As the name suggests, the design is abstract and based on geometric shapes. The result is a beautiful and lightweight application, but the range of functions does not compete directly with the alternatives mentioned above.

Geometric Weather is an alternative version of AccuWeather and no ads/©

There’s a rain radar missing here, but information for allergy sufferers is on board. Therefore, the focus is the absence of advertising and a minimalist look. This is also reflected in a fairly wide widget that can be customized in several ways to suit your preferences. Geometric Weather is free, and as already mentioned, has no ads.
