Better than the Fire's built-in app,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: AccuWeather (App)
The main thing I missed in the Weather Channel app that comes on the Fire is that it doesn't have radar. The description says it's coming soon, but in the meantime, the Accuweather app has it now!
I like the temperature that pops up in the notification bar. One unexpected benefit of it is that when my Fire wakes up and I'm waiting for the wireless network to become active, the Accuweather app's temperature display is usually the first thing to pop up.
The interface for browsing the current weather data and the long-range forecast is super-smooth and it looks great with the black background.
The only thing I have found that I miss in this app is some of the news stories about the weather than you can read on AccuWeather's website (I'm already an accuweather fan because of the news and blogs posted by the true weather geeks there). I guess more mobile users prefer the videos (which the app has) though.
I didn't have any trouble whatsoever with it on my Fire.
