Weather Forecast App, Radar, Widget and Alerts (by Advertikon)
Currently, there are a huge number of weather apps on the Android market, so developers have to be creative when creating applications, developing apps that would have a distinctive feature that would make their applications stand out from the crowd.
One such app is the Weather Forecast App, Radar, Widget and Alerts developed by Advertikon. With a simple and harmonious user interface, it provides access to detailed weather forecast information.
The app provides an hourly forecast for a day ahead and a daily forecast for 10 days.
The hourly forecast is presented in the form of a graph. The graph has 3 modes of displaying weather data: the display of temperature, precipitation and wind strength. Switching between the modes is animated, which makes the graphical interface more pleasant to use. Under the graph is a block with detailed weather conditions for the selected time. This block displays the strength and gusts of wind, relative humidity, dew point, UV index, precipitation, atmospheric pressure, visibility, cloud cover, and ceiling. The uniqueness of the interface lies in the fact that to select a specific time the scrolling of the graph of the hourly weather forecast is used. This allows using the minimum graphic elements of the user interface to display the maximum amount of weather forecast information.
A 10-day weather forecast is also presented in graph form. Which also has three display modes of weather conditions: the display of temperature, precipitation, and wind strength. Switching between modes, as in the case of hourly weather forecasts, is animated. The daily weather forecast has a bonus in the form of information about air quality and the presence of air pollutants (such as pollen, ragweed, carbon dioxide, mold, etc.).
For those who do not want to be taken by surprise by changes in weather conditions, the app offers the option to enable notifications of severe weather conditions. For example, notify of approaching precipitation, wind, low visibility, high UV index or changes in temperature compared to the previous days. Almost all notifications are customizable (you can change the notification threshold)
Like most weather applications, the application contains a set of widgets for the desktop for every taste – from simple ones that display an icon of current weather conditions to complex interactive widgets that display information (including graphic) about a weather forecast for a certain period.
Summing up, we can say that this weather application for android due to its unusual interface and approach to displaying the weather forecast deserves the attention of users of Android devices
