AccuWeather Platinum, the pay version of the free weather app in the Google Play Store, has been updated today with several new features and enhancements. The updated build is version 4.7.2-paid for those keeping score at home and if you have Android Nougat 7.1.1 on your device, you can take advantage of the new app shortcuts. Long pressing the app’s icon will get you to shortcuts that will take you directly to the Daily Forecast, the Hourly Forecast or a Map with local weather radar. All three of these can be dragged to your Home page so you can have them just a tap away if you want to do so.
The Widgets for the app have also been updated. You can now select to see what AccuWeather calls “RealFeel” temperatures on the widgets. RealFeel is the temperature with considerations made for windchill or humidity to give you a more accurate idea of what it feels like outside.
