Accurate weather forecasting
Weather forecasts usually made by using of weather forecasts models. Different weather forecast sources (Weather Underground, Accuweather, National Weather Service and etc) use different forecasts models. For to let you know which weather source is better for your location (or any world wide place), application gather forecast statistics by comparing current weather with that was predicted. Check internal application help for more details. All application widgets and views provides best (by statistics) data.
The application currently use three world-wide and one USA-only weather sources of data (will be more in next versions).
Most of visual elements can be customized - weather icons, units of measure, most of colors, fonts, date formats, update intervals, data visibility and so.
From advanced features - for example, it possible to replace all temperatures with feels-like temperature on all widgets and views of the application
Easy to use
Even with so much customization, the application is user friendly. In most complicated cases you can easily reset the appropriate settings category to defaults. Weather ACE application also contains internal help.
