Before we can say that one weather application is better than another, we must see the characteristics we need at that time. There are endless possibilities but the main thing that is sought in an app is that it is easy to use and does not have too much invasive advertising. When we install this type of application on our mobile phone we look for ease to know the weather forecast. Let's see what are the characteristics that this type of application needs to be more in demand:

  • Temperature and wind chill: perhaps it is the most searched meteorological variable. The temperature and the thermal sensation of an area where we are going to go is essential to know the type of clothing that we will need. For example, if we are going to travel outside our town or city we will need to know the temperature and the thermal sensation at the destination.
  • Hourly forecast: sometimes the weather forecast is more complex and wrong. Therefore, knowing the forecast by hours is more accurate. It is not only important to know the day it is going to rain but the time it is going to do it.
  • Alerts: If the weather changes drastically, the prediction can be changed and we receive a real-time alert about possible changes to be prepared.
  • Location: The application also needs to be able to locate us and offer a weather forecast for the geographical place where we are. It is important that the application must satellite our location and we do not have to manually enter the place where we are.
  • Sunrise and sunset: sunrise and sunset are two lovely daily phenomena must. Depending on these two parts of the day, we can know how the days are growing or decreasing depending on the season of the year. You can also plan day or night outings without surprises.
  • Sea state: especially for the summer time it is interesting to know the temperature of the water, the waves, the hours of high and low tide to do water activities or go to the beach quietly.
  • Wind status: the speed in the direction of the wind is essential for any type of outdoor activity that we are going to do.
