AccuWeather Review

What is Accuweather?

Accuweather is a weather app that offers hourly, daily, monthly forecasts. The app comes with an intuitive and clean user-interface with a weather information card at the top of the primary page.

If there's one thing we love to check more than train times, it's the weather, and Accuweather is by far the most detailed weather app on the Google Play Store. You not only get the current temperature, humidity, UV index, dew point, visibility, pressure, wind speed and wind direction, but it also gives you all this information in detailed hourly and daily weather forecasts as well. 

Is AccuWeather app free?

AccuWeather is available for free to download on iOS and Android devices.

How much does AccuWeather cost?

AccuWeather offers an ad-free version of the app called AccuWeather Platinum for a one-time fee of $2.99.

How does AccuWeather work?

The primary screen shows everything you need to know right now: the temperature, what it feels like, the high and low for today, and whether there will be any precipitation in the next few hours.

The menu at the bottom has buttons for the radar, hourly, and daily forecast, and sometimes hurricane information if that's a current threat. Some apps have you scroll through various menus to find these things, so it’s nice that this one puts them up front. Plus, just a quick scroll later, and you can see what will happen later today, with the hourly and daily forecasts built-in to one long scrollable list, with a graph of the highs and lows for a way to quickly glance at how the temperature will change over time.

Is AccuWeather good?

AccuWeather is great and it is considered one of the most popular and accurate weather apps out there. 

AccuWeather will also send you alerts when the weather changes drastically or there is a real danger. With AccuWeather you will always be aware and ready for sudden rain or strong winds. AccuWeather is a collection of weather news and indicators that are updated in real-time. AccuWeather will tell you what the humidity and wind speed will be in the near future, and the special technology of the developers accurately determines the air temperature.

With the app you can find out the weather not only near you but all over the world – perhaps you are planning a trip and you really want to know what temperature and humidity are expected in a given region.

In addition to accurate reporting and a user-friendly interface, AccuWeather also has a feature that will tell you whether or not you should expect rain to fall in your location within the next 60 minutes, making it perfect for that last-minute coat grab.

Not only will AccuWeather give you the temperature conditions, but the app will also provide you with information on UV levels, wind conditions, visibility, cloud cover and humidity.

You can scroll further down the app to see information on allergen levels, as well as the upcoming hourly and daily weather forecasts. The app also comes with a radar feature that provides some helpful information.

What are the disadvantages of AccuWeather?

The one downside to AccuWeather is that there are a lot of ads on the free version of the app. With the free version, you are still given access to a lot of the app’s functionalities, but these adverts are targeted as the app sells device-specific data. To get rid of these ads, it costs one payment of $3.99 to purchase a premium subscription.

It does have some downsides: the blocky weather maps don't match the rest of its slick, minimalist design and the weather-related news and videos aren't always particularly relevant to your location, but if all you're looking for is a quick rundown of the weather, AccuWeather is our app of choice. You can purchase AccuWeather Platinum, an ad-free version of AccuWeather which has 'more accurate' weather forecasts, push notifications for severe weather alerts, five-day forecast summaries and - if you live in China or South Korea - Air Quality reports.

Overall Rating

AccuWeather gets high marks from us not only for its simplicity but also for being so comprehensive. While the app is no-frills, just about any kind of weather information you might need is at your fingertips with AccuWeather.  It tracks hurricanes, storms, snow, and pretty much anything you might want to keep an eye on. You can look up information regarding both sunrise and sunset, in addition to allergy conditions, and there are news and video clips about the current weather cycle.
