Get the weather forecast directly in you smartphone

WeatherBug is a very complete app that shows the weather information of wherever you are. As expected, you can add more locations on your list. The app's main board specifies the current temperature, as well as the highest and lowest for the day.

In the bottom menu you can access to an extended forecast for the following six days, a Worldwide satellite image, the possibility of a camera image for the selected location, a video of Rachel's WeatherCast in the U.S, and weather alerts which may not be available for your location if you're from outside the U.S. A help section is also included, which might help you understand the application better.

Moreover, there's a much more specific condition section with further information about temperature, precipitation, wind, sun, humidity and pressure. If you're from the US, you will also have access to Pollen Data.

WeatherBug was created by WeartherBug Mobile and, as you may have noticed, it only has a few other weather-related apps in the market.

If you're from the U.S and looking for a good weather service for your smartphone, you may want to try this one. If you're from somewhere else, you can also download it but you won't be able to use all the features.

    Appears to report the current weather conditions more precisly than AccuWeather does. Unfortunately, has some problems with data updates and consistency. My detailed feedback is on http://backyard.weatherbug.com/forum/topics/feedback-on-using-weatherbug.

    Your app stopped working all together on my droid...nothing works. I've unloaded & reloaded several times. I'm unloading it for the last time. The weather channel app is much more accurate anyway.

    Would be better if you would put the state lines back on the physical map. I know you girls & boys at W/B can do a little old thing like that.

    I love this app. It let's me know, upon wake up, how difficult it will be moving from building to building on campus. Good job!
