The Weather Channel app for Android has been updated today with some very impressive new radar images. The updated build is version 7.0.1 for those keeping score at home and the update is rolling out in the Google Play Store now for those who have the app installed. Now when you go to the radar section of the app, you will see a much more interesting maps than in the previous release. The first thing you’ll notice is that the maps look more topographical which is great for those of us who live in mountainous areas. But the update isn’t just skin deep. The app now allows you to zoom down all the way to street level so you can see exactly when a storm is going to impact you & your neighborhood. Before you could zoom in but it wouldn’t go down to street level.
The latest update to The Weather Channel app for Android brings a new forecast feature for those who like to run or walk. The new GoRun forecast gives you current conditions as well as conditions later on in the day or the next day so you can plan your walk or run accordingly. The forecast gives you a 1-10 scale with 10 being the best time to run based on the weather forecast that includes precipitation, humidity and air quality. This new forecast is found by scrolling down to the bottom of the main forecast display on the app, just below the radar section.
The Weather Channel has updated their app for Android phones today, bringing with it a much improved ski resort and ski area report to the app. The updated build is version is 6.2 for those keeping score at home and this improved ski information is only on the phone app. The tablet version was also updated (5.2) but it doesn’t contain the ski information.
As before, when you scroll down to the bottom of the app on your phone, you will see ski information for your area. Now you have the option to tap the All Resorts link and you will get a list of resorts in the area you are viewing (in my case Denver).
The Weather Channel app for Android has received another major makeover in the latest update, bringing a clean and more material design look to the popular weather app. The updated version is build 6.0.0 for those keeping score at home and it has rolled out to the Google Play Store. In the new user experience, information is far easier to get to as it is now a simple swipe up and down in the app to get information about current conditions, what you can expect for the day and forecasts. Radar images have seemingly improved dramatically as well in this update as they are far less jittery than in previous builds. If there is a weather advisory in your area and you have signed up with the service, the Weather Channel app can send you a notification and it will be highlighted in the app itself when you first open it. Tap that banner and you can get more information about that weather event.
The Weather Channel app for Android has been updated with a new and important feature as we go into winter and what is typically the cold & flu season here in the US. The app has a new Health Module that provides you details about the pollen, breathing comfort and flu conditions in your area. It’s a great addition, especially for those who suffer from allergies or have breathing difficulties under certain weather conditions. The update is version 5.10.0 for those keeping score at home and is available now in the Google Play Store.
