As more developers are updating their apps with Material Design elements, we're starting to see a plethora of beautiful new apps on the Play Store. But which ones are the best? Let us know what you think the best looking apps on Android are and why.
Track Weather Around the World with LiveWeather
As the weather’s starting to change and we welcome the new season, it’s getting more and more important to look up the day’s forecast before stepping outside. While those in the southern hemisphere may be dreading the cooler days of winter that are now just a few short months away, we here in the northern hemisphere are in fear of quite the opposite.
Luckily, there are plenty of weather apps and widgets available on Android to keep you up to date with your region’s weather information. Heck, even Google Now has a weather card that pops up whenever the weather changes. However, some of us want something a bit more powerful, and for that, XDA Senior Member sylsau created LiveWeather.
LiveWeather is a fancy weather app that displays current weather data such as temperature and conditions. These additional conditions include humidity, wind speed and direction, and barometric pressure. LiveWeather also gives extended forecasts (along with high/low charts) for temperature. It also allows you to see weather throughout the world, by continent, city, or country. The data is displayed graphically or numerically, overlaid atop a geographical map. And finally, the app also offers three aesthetically pleasing clock and weather widgets to add some nice bling to your home screen.
If you’ve wanted a really nice weather application, you should give LiveWeather a try. Make your way over to the application thread to get started.
