Met Office: Weather Application
It's a bit of a dog at times, but the data's good, and the app's free.
Met Office: Weather Application Review
by on October 6, 2011
The built-in Weather app on the iPhone is perfectly good enough for getting a quick overview of what the weather’s going to get up to over the next five days. But, saying that, Met Office Weather is an app that’s really worth installing, and not just because it’s free.
Because it’s the official app of the UK Meteorological Office, the data’s as good as you’re going to get. (Yes, it’s often a bit off; but, as you’ll know, the British weather’s a particularly tricky thing to predict.) You get forecasts and animated satellite maps of weather patterns.
However, the interface feels ugly and distinctly un-iPhone-like, and, while our experience was fine, some have reported instability. The app will offer to set your location automatically, but tends to dump you over in London regardless. However, fret not, as you can set your location manually.
