1Weather is a comprehensive weather app with great visuals and powerful widgets

Android does not offer a built-in weather application, so users have to go to the Google Play store to get one, but, luckily, there are plenty of good options out there, and today, we present you one of them. 1Weather is a personal favorite of ours, a no-frills weather application that delivers relevant weather information in a clean and good looking interface. 1Weather is offered as a free application on the Play store, but if you want to remove the ads that appear on the bottom (not really that intrusive), you can choose to pay $1.99 for the ad-free version. 

The application offers you everything you'd expect from a weather app: you have the temperature, atmospheric pressure, chance of rain, and so on. Actually, there are six tabs that you can swipe between: one for the daily weather, another one for the forecast (you can pick between hourly, daily, and extended one), a third showing you the chance for rain on a given day, a fourth tab with precipitation data, a fifth with a full-on weather map showing you animations with the movements of the clouds, and finally, a sixth one with the lunar cycles.

Along with that comprehensive package also come some excellent widgets, as well as a tool that shows you the weather in your notification dropdown, which is particularly neat.

If you are looking for a weather app, 1Weather is one of Android's finest, and we definitely recommend you check it out. Given that it's free, it won't hurt, will it?

This app is awesome. Tried a bunch of weather apps and found this to be the best.

Currently using the beautiful yahoo weather. Gonna try this but paying for just a weather app is insane. But if it manages to impress in the free version i will support the dev.

After trying a dozen or so weather apps, I finally found an honest one that provides a decent widget for the lock screen with the weather and the time and has no ads: EZ Weather. It's not the most accurate, but accurate enough and requires very little bandwidth and battery.

A. Widgets are overrated and B. Yahoo weather is better

Nice. You guys know your abc's widgets are nothing but battery drainers and resource hogs. I'm pretty sure if apple ever utilize widgets they'd be far more optimized than the android ones.

D. His iPhone doesn't even have widgets for him to know if they are worth while or overrated. E. When Apple finally allows a type of widget, he'll rave them as being the greatest iOS addition to date.

I'll give you a plus 1 for that. I'd never suggest you go back to the beginning and start with Apple.

I agree with the Yahoo Weather votes. The 1x4 widget shows the current weather and the next four hours. The app itself has everything, including radar, on a single scrolling page. Plus it pulls local pictures from Flickr for interesting, varying backgrounds (which show up on the widgets as well as the app.

And, in order to do all that, Yahoo Weather sucks the life out of the phone battery and the bandwidth out of the plan cap.

One thing I didn't like about 1weather was the inaccuracy in my area. Whatever station it is pulling it's information from is usually 5 to 10 degrees off. And it's prediction on rain and sunshine were always off. I used to love Weatherbug, but they stopped supporting their premium service, so I went with Accuweather. Not as pretty/fancy, but pretty accurate.

Some parts of this app looks like a Metro app with the solid background, clean fonts etc, kinda reminds me of "amazing weather HD" on WP, Yahoo weather also .

I was using a combination of Yahoo! Weather for my app, Radar Now! for radar imagery and The Weather Channel for the widget. I decided to switch to 1Weather and give it a try over the next while to see if I want to stick with it. The widget is larger than I would like for the info I want, but at least I don't have to use 3 different apps. Also, I don't have to deal with that annoying splash screen for a few seconds whenever I launch Yahoo! Weather.

1Weather just isn't giving accurate forecasts. I'm switching back to Yahoo! for the app and Weather Channel for the widget. I'm keeping 1Weather for the satellite imagery.

the bottom five icons wasn't that nice, it made the overall effect looks a bit complicated...no offence
