Product Description

They say everyone complains about the weather, but no one ever does anything about it. Well, this app won't give you the power to change the weather, but it will provide you with a detailed look at current and projected weather conditions, so you'll be ready for whatever Mother Nature throws at you.

Umbrella or Sunscreen?

Elecont Weather is a stylish weather forecast application and widget set that supports up to 130,000 locations around the world (including Pakistan). The app pulls in data from two well-known weather providers: Intellicast and Foreca. With a quick look at your Android device, you can determine if tomorrow is going to be cloudy or sunny, rainy or dry, hot or cold. Take the guesswork out of choosing your daily attire to match the weather.

Temperature, Pressure, and Winds, Oh My

This application has everything you could ever desire in a weather app. Along with current conditions, you'll get hourly, daily, and ten-day forecasts for temperature (in Celsius and Farenheit), humidity, precipitation, barometric pressure, winds, and more. It even includes UV radiation levels, moon phases, and a "feels like" option so you'll know when 82 degrees feels more like 87, or worse.

You'll want to set the app on the weather for your current location, of course, but what if you regularly travel to other cities? Or your sister lives in Sarasota, and you want to know how bad her heat wave is while you bask in the cool temperatures of Seattle? This app has got you covered.

All you do is call up the Location List and you can add as many other places as you want to track. (You can pinpoint these by city, zip code, from a map, or through your device's GPS feature.) Then you simply flick your screen to rotate between the weather conditions of your selected locations.

You, Weather Person

Now you don't have to watch the Weather Channel to see those cool satellite images showing regional conditions. Elecont has included a Doppler radar feature that will show you real-time images for any location in the United States, with both satellite and standard map views. Show off your deep knowledge of meteorology with these maps and all the other information provided here in one neat package.

Another helpful feature of the app is weather alerts. If your area is threatened by storms, tornadoes, heavy rains, or other serious conditions, you'll receive detailed warnings through the app. You can also have these alerts featured in widgets or on your status bar.

Sunny Interface

The designers at Elecont have taken the time to produce a great-looking app with even better functionality. From the ten-day forecast view, just touch on any day to call up detailed information for that day. In the single-day, clock-like view, tap the center to switch between temperature, precipitation, and wind details.

The app also includes an impressive variety of well-designed widgets. Choose from widgets that show general weather conditions, barometric pressure, wind speeds, and even moon phases, then adjust the size to your liking. Tap on any of these widgets to launch the application.

Whole Lotta Shakin' Going On

As a final touch, the Elocont Weather app even includes earthquake information. No, it can't predict earthquakes (yet), but it does list all the recent seismic activity in a given area (that you can adjust). Call up a detailed list of recent quakes--including size on the Richter scale, location, and exact time--and, with one touch, see them plotted on a map.

5.0 out of 5 stars Elecont's Weather vs. AccuWeather September 8, 2011
Verified Purchase
One of the apps I installed on my Xoom on 'day one' was AccuWeather. It was the best I could find at the time and, of course, it was free. AccuWeather comes with everything we learned to expect in a browser applet: there is the weather bug and it expands to a lot of detail: current weather, hourly forecast, 15 days forecast, multiple locations, maps with radar overlays, moon phases, alerts, weather trivia and so forth. Well... AccuWeather seems to be on its way out, to be replaced by Elecont's Weather app.

_______

ACCUWEATHER vs. ELECONT's

NAME (AccuWeather)
Elecont must find a name for their app. Can't have something named "Weather, US Radar, Alerts, Quakes". It's true, this is what the app does but... seriously, think of a name.

CONTENT (tie)
They both provide the customary current/hourly/10-15 days foreasts, maps with radar overlays and weather alerts. AccuWeather has video forecasts and a 'lifestyles' section but Elecont adds 'earthquakes' and is not pushing commercials.

THE BUG (Elecont)
AccuWeather's one-size-fits-all bug looks better but Elecont's wins by offering highly customizable widgets in just about any size from 1x1 up to 4x4. You can pick the type of info to be displayed, the type of bug, including Elecont's rather unique weather clock display, colors, transparency, even the frequency of updates.

RELIABILITY (AccuWeather)
AccuWeather was 'always there' as far as I can tell. This may be a fluke but one of Elecont's 2 alternative sources for weather information, Intellicast, was not available during my first day of using the app.

I waited until I got my new Nexus 7 tablet to get this app because I thought it would look better than any of the other weather apps I was using. I was right! Several features set it apart. It also does not require unreasonable permissions to use.

I look for three things in my weather app: accurate detailed weather information, good graphics that function well, and apps that respect my privacy by requiring only the permissions they need to operate.

So that you can understand why I prefer eWeather HD, here are comparisons to the three other weather apps I was using:

ACCUWEATHER PLATINUM -
Accuracy: Data and forecast are accurate enough to be useful most days. 10 day forecast provides detailed information about each day. Lifestyle information is mostly frivolous.
Appearance: Clear but very basic presentation of information. The radar imaging is okay, but the map won't zoom and is very basic (on my son's Kindle - I can't get a version from Amazon that is compatible with the Nexus 7, so I can't say how it looks on that.) No adjustable font size.
Privacy: When I realized just how many permissions it requires, I deleted this app from my phone. It does not need to send SMS and email messages, make phone calls, and modify my calendar without my input. The rest of the permissions are needed.

BEWEATHER AND WIDGETS PRO:
Accuracy: Information and forecast are usually pretty close, but when I got up this morning it insisted it was 96 degrees out. I switched to another reporting station and it was 71. Much better. No details besides hi/low, humidity and sky conditions on the 10 day forecasts. I need to know about wind in advance. Supports multiple locations.
Appearance: The data screen is clear and pretty and largely empty.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent since latest update December 27, 2012
By Chuck1
Verified Purchase
I liked this app from when I first bought it some months ago. It works extremely well on the Kindle Fire HD 7. The latest update to version 4.6.4 (today for me) allows you to put just about anything on the radar map or remove it at a tap. What is really nice are the various alerts/and warnings that show up by area, just a tap on it and you can see what kind of alert it is and tap again if you want to read the entire item. Personally I think its a very fair priced app for all that it does. Everything works.
Also a web/site and forum for questions.

1.0 out of 5 stars Doesn't work well on kindle fire December 29, 2012
Verified Purchase
My friend has this app on a Google Nexus and it works great so I bought it for my Kindle Fire. Needless to say, it doesn't work the same. You can't scroll from screen to screen. The radar screen doesn't allow you to expand or cdontract with your finger tips and it takes forever to load.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Weather App November 9, 2012
My first impression of this app wasn't very good simply due to the multitde of features it was packed with. However, after spending more time tinkering with it, I now find it to be one of the best weather apps on the market today. A must have!

4.0 out of 5 stars Very Good Program & Support August 26, 2011
By PeterB.
Verified Purchase
I purchased the program mainly for the barometer and barograph readings due to weather related migraines. The program allows you to update in as little as 10 mins.
Support responded same day.
Confusion in terminology sea level pressure and 'pressure' which is relative pressure as reported by your local airport as 'altimeter'.
Only drawback, cannot move program to SD card. Using LG Optimus S on Sprint.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow October 1, 2012
Verified Purchase
I was blown away with the amount of information contained in this weather app. I almost gave up but with just a little bit more playing around, I absolutly love this program.

Some historical data would be a nice addition i.e. rainfall or snow accumulation. Also, record highs and lows. This info may be there somewhere and I just havn't found it yet.

Update: After living with this app for a while I'm editing my review to give it a fifth star. I had one relatively minor issue and it has been resolved by the latest update of the Kindle Fire HD software.
