Weather is something that is a daily aspect of our lives. It can change rapidly, so much to the point that it is hard to keep track of.
In this article, you will find apps on the App Store that are available for popular devices like the iPhone and iPad, and will get you that crucial weather information.
- CARROT Weather: We have talked about this app a lot over the last year because it is a premium app that gets you the weather info you may want or need. What makes it stand out is its premium price and its unique design. It has apps that are available on the iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad, Apple Watch, Apple TV and the Mac. Tier 1 costs $4.99 a year, Tier 2 costs $11.99 a year and Tier 3 costs $29.99 a year.
- Dark Sky: This app was recently purchased by Apple as of March 2020, but it is still one of the most popular weather apps on the App Store. It does work a lot like CARROT Weather, but does not have as much device support as CARROT (no Apple TV or Mac apps). However, it only has a one-time fee of $3.99 and that will include getting notifications on your devices when precipitation is about to occur or weather-related alerts are sent out by the National Weather Service.
- NOAA Radar Pro: Like the description says, this is a great app to use if you’re a weather radar person and want to see the storm cells as they come in. It does have apps for the iPhone, iPad and Apple Watch, so you can access it on multiple devices. On top of that, it will send you up-to-the-minute weather alerts to your devices too. It costs $4.99 in the App Store.
- AccuWeather for tvOS: We’re highlighting the app on the Apple TV HD and Apple TV 4K since it is one of the few weather apps on tvOS that has a radar. Since it has a radar in the app, that means it can be put on your big screen in your home.
Those are the four best apps we can find that are great for tracking the weather and being a step or two ahead of the storms. If you’re looking for a way to stream weather news to your TV or other devices, check out this article we wrote in 2019 about that.
