APP OF THE DAY: Met Office Weather Application (Android)

Android, Android apps, Tech Digest news

met-office-android.jpgAlready available on iOS devices for a good while now, the Met Office (the UK’s most veritable source of weather information) have now released an app for Android phones too.

The Met Office Weather Application offers up five-day forecasts and severe weather warnings for gales and heavy storms (which would have been very useful during the start of the month’s freak winds) and of course weather maps.

There’s also a “feels like” temperature reading, which takes into account the wind chill factor, which will make it a bit easier to judge whether or not to pull on your scruffy old cardigan as well as a jacket.

Menus are slick and easy to navigate, clearly displaying all the weathe rinformation, though we did feel the maps themselves were a little cluttered, with cloud, storm and sunshine symbols a bit too prominent.

Click here to pick up the app. It’s free.
