Android Weather Apps

With yesterday’s announcement, that dark sky will no longer be available for Android was a bummer. Apple did say that Dark Sky’s API at the end of 2021, which gives other weather apps time to switch providers. Unfortunately, at this time, it seems like there aren’t any other apps that as well designed.

Here are a few alternative weather apps for Android:

Today Weather

Today weather offers a clean, dark but friendly interface. The app itself is free, but if you’re not a fan of ads, they do offer premium options.

The Friendly weather app greets you by your name and displays detailed information from one of several selectable data sources. Some of the sources include AccuWeather, Dark Sky, here.com, and more. For those who are outside of the US, you can choose smhi.sh, weather.ga.ca, BOM as alternatives for your location.

Yahoo Weather

Yahoo Weather offers stunning background images, hyper-local data, 5-day, and 10-day forecasts.

Based on your location, Yahoo Weather will display a high-quality photo to match it. Along with all the relevant data you to see for today, and the next 5-10 days. The App’s hyper-local data comes from Weather Underground’s nationwide network of weather stations to help provide accurate weather reports.

The App’s layout is easy to navigate. At the top of the App, it will display live updates. Scrolling up and down allows users to view information about their location. Swiping side to side will change locations.
