Here’s a new Android app you weren’t expecting: Climatology from Microsoft, a unique weather service that provides climate information for anywhere on Earth. It won’t provide you with a forecast for the week ahead, but it will help you plan a dry vacation or avoid rain when choosing your wedding date.


Google Now is one of the most powerful tools currently available for any Android user. It allows us to set reminders, send text messages, compose emails, place telephone calls, read news articles and view the weather all without having to use our hands — the service predominantly depends on voice commands.

Something that you may not be aware of, though, is that the application now permits users to cancel auto-renewing memberships with the aid of two simple words and a tap on the screen. Now that’s pretty cool, if you ask me.


The BBC has today unveiled a new weather app for smartphones running Android and iOS. Available to those in the U.K. and Ireland, it’s powered by Met Office data and provides all kinds of information that’ll help you plan for the day ahead, including hourly forecasts, and data on UV, pollen count, humidity, and more.


AccuWeather is one of my favorite weather apps on Android (alongside WeatherPro). Not only does it look good, but I’ve also found it to be incredibly accurate, and it has some great features. There’s a free version if you don’t mind looking at nasty ads, but for a limited time, you can get the ad-free AccuWeather Platinum for just 99¢.



There are weather apps, and then there are weather apps; Nooly is, apparently, the latter. Nooly is so accurate, its press release claims, the app “is capable of predicting the exact minute it will rain or snow and can do so effectively, wherever you are, for every 0.4 square miles.” That’s pretty precise.
