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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Weather App For $.99! July 22, 2013
Verified Purchase
I am a weather nerd. I have a weather station by my bed, and by my chair in the living room. Before the Weather Channel became the Anything But Weather Channel, it was my default TV station. I have 3 other weather apps at the front of my carousel on my Kindle. When this one came up on sale last week, I decided to actually pay real money for it based on the reviews. (I am also a financial nerd).

Several reviewers noted it took them 20 minutes or so to figure out the app, which by my standards, is pretty good. I took about 25 minutes because there really is a lot of information stuffed into this app! Others have gone into great detail about the weather tools found within so I don't think it is necessary to do it again. However, it is nice to have every detail I want in one place now. And I mean every single detail!

I particularly love the map, which not only tells you the time information contained in it was put on the map (if you scroll the map down or over or up depending on where you live and the direction your storms, etc., generally come from, the time is stamped over the area the information they got to put on the map - awesome!!), but is automatically moving about 5 seconds after it loads. I like the amount of information and how it is set up. If a storm is approaching (as one is currently in my area), there is a separate bar just for the air pressure which I need because of a particular chronic illness I suffer which is very affected by changes in air pressure, which extends 24 hour into the future.

What I also really like is that it has an earthquake map!! The map has all earthquakes from all over the world placed with a yellow dot which is sized by the earthquakes intensity.
