Features & Use

Weather,US Radar,Alerts,Quakes” starts working as soon as you open it. Before you know it the app is using your current location to download the latest weather information from Foreca.com. Just a few seconds later an analog clock with a weather symbol appears on the screen.

If you take a closer look at the clock you’ll notice the following: in the middle of the clock you’ll see the current temperature, the current weather in words, a barometer, the date, the time in numbers and a T°C sym bol.

The T°C symbol indicates that the current temperature is displayed in Celsius. Clicking the symbol opens up a small umbrella that displays the chances of precipitation instead of the temperature. Tap the symbol yet again and you’ll see the current wind speed.

And that just about sums it up for the app’s main features: weather, barometer and time. Within the app it is possible to switch between these features by swiping. To the right from the clock, you’ll find a 10 day forecast as well as a barometer with the current date.

There are several tools at your disposal to help you figure out what the weather is like at any given moment. In the 10 day forecast you can also today’s current weather in the top section of the screen.

In the same graph you’ll find the high and low temperatures, the wind direction and speed, moon cycle, precipitation as well as a graphic display of the weather.

In the next window there is a chart with all of the current weather information such as barometric pressure, wind, temperature etc. So those are all of the displays in a nutshell.

But don’t look away just yet because the app can do much more! By scrolling up and down you can switch between multiple cities. You just have to make sure and create list of your favorite cities by going to Menu  More. Adding a city can be done either manually, via GPS or using your zip code.

For every city you can select to get your weather from the following services: Foreca.com or Intellicast.com. Personally, I didn’t notice any difference between the two.

In the menu you’ll find what else the app is capable of.

In Alerts you can set up warnings for extreme weather conditions in your area.

With the Earthquake feature you can check out earthquakes in your vicinity on a map.

The settings are just as comprehensive as all the features listed above. In addition to being able to adjust every measuring unit, the update intervals and the look of the weather symbol – you can also adjust the widgets and notifications.

With these notifications you can receive the latest weather information directly in your status bar.

Finally, there are also settings for your radar which can adjust the cloud animation. So what exactly does it show? Well, the radar displays the current cloud conditions overlaid onto Google Maps albeit the function only works in the US. So you can only enjoy this view of the clouds if you happen to be in the States (or have an American city in your favorites).

Bottom Line:

Weather, US Radar, Alerts, Quakes is an extremely thorough and comprehensive app, which includes just about everything you could ever want from a weather app. All of this important information can also be accessed via widgets and the notification bar.
 

 

Screen & Controls

Weather,US Radar,Alerts,Quakes is very easy to use using a system of vertical and horizontal swipes.

    How are you doing? I hope that you are very fine in health. Also how is the weather overthere? Mine is cool here. Well to introduce myself, my name is LISSA. I held from the Republic of Cote d'ivoire. But I am presently residing in the UN refugee camp herein Senegal as a result of the ongoing civil war in my country.

    My father and mother are late. They were killed one early morning when the rebels attack us in our private villa in Abidjan. It was only my brother that is alive now and we managed to make our way to Senegal through the help of one missionery. I am a simple person, caring, lovely, understandable, faithful, submissive, sincere, easygoing etc. I love, playing handball, swimming, singing gospel song, watching movies in the television etc. i hate, gossip, fighting, lieing, disrespect, pride, stealing, quick annoyance etc. Can you please tell me your likes and dislikes,your hobbies and what you are doing presently. As I told you earlier, I was studying Real estate management before the death of my parents. Although situations has been turing me around but I belive one day God will make away for me and my dream will come through. Just to mention a few about myself. As you can see staying in the Refugee camp is just like one staying in the prison and I wish to relocate if I see a good sameritan who help me.

    I don't have any relatives now whom I can go to all my relatives ran away in the middle of the war. The only person who is currntly helping me and my brother is Rev marthins. Here in the camp he has been very nice to me since i came here but i am not leaving with him rather i am leaving in the women's hostel because the camp have two hostels one for men the other for women. I am staying in the Block 13A.
    Incase you will like to talk to me, the Revrend's Tel number is +221773063621 ) my email is (lissababy62@yahoo.com)

    if you call, tell him that you want to speak with me he will send for me. I want to go back to my studies because i only attended my first year before the traggic incident that lead to my being in this situation.

    Stay well and have a sweet loving day and I look forward to hearing from yu soon ,
