iPhone App Review by TheiPhoneAppReview.com
If you’ve ever purchased a premium weather application on the iPhone or iPad, or have ever looked into purchasing such a title, we’re willing to bet that at some point you’ve run across WeatherPro, from MeteoGroup Deutschland GmbH.
The app is a classic, and with good reason: It’s chock full of quality features, useful items, and more than enough information to make itself worthwhile. And as the developers are experiencing a rather large anniversary here soon, we thought we’d do the honors of chipping in with a little full-on review of WeatherPro.
So without any further ado, skip on down below the break to view our whole thought about this wonderful meteorological app!
Concept and Functionality
If you’ve ever used a weather app of any sort, then we feel like we don’t need to explaining the basics here. WeatherPro will get you your forecasts and current weather conditions based on your geolocation, as served up by the phone.
You’ll get a host of astronomical data, such as pressures, humidity, sun ratings, etc. in addition to your more standard temperatures and the like.
Now that that’s out of the way, let’s move to the good stuff! WeatherPro comes with a built-in radar and satellite, allowing you to physically see the danger when during a bit of inclement weather: Or how long the sun will last if it’s a great day out.
It also comes with a maps setting that ties into the developers’ other great weather app, MateoEarth. These maps let you see global temperatures, cloud cover, and a host of other interesting information, too. If you have MateoEarth and want to swap directly to its wonderful features, you can do that seamlessly here, too.
All in all, with favorite locations, a wealth of information (as well as a figurative mountain of ways in which to display it all) WeatherPro is one of the most feature-rich weather apps out there.
Design and Interface
You know, we didn’t expect to like the new interface redesign that WeatherPro has undergone, but the more time we spent with it, the more we were willing to let it slide.
You see, the devs claim the application has been redone for iOS 7. And though at first it doesn’t seem like it (“There’s just so much stuff!”) we promise you’ll find the influence if you look. This is a streamlined, beautiful, and flat-ish effort, and one that should be rewarded.
This is not a skeumporphic horror show, but an example of how all weather applications should be made.
Now, most of us could probably get by with the free weather app that comes pre-installed on the iPhone. Or, just by using Google. However, we cannot deny the value and insane bargain-hunting potential of WeatherPro’s $2.99 price tag for a select market.
If you’re the kind of person that watches the Weather Channel (We sure do) and looks out the window to see what kind of clouds are floating around (Us again) then by all means:
The three dollars you’ll spend here will seem infinitely worth it in no time. We guarantee it.
WeatherPro requires iOS 6.2 or later and is compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch. A small expedite fee was paid to speed up the publication of this review.
