Without a doubt, the best weather app for the iPhone is the Weather Channel. If you are looking for a good weather app and don’t want to use the proprietary one that comes with the iPhone, then it’s worth your while to explore the Weather Channel app.
One of the best things about the Weather Channel app is that it is simply beautiful. The user interface is clean and shows you the temperature and current weather conditions in your area at a glance. You can choose your general location or select one that is more specific by entering your zip code. Although there are ads embedded in the app, it’s easy to avoid them as you scroll down the page.
You can get weather alerts by configuring notifications in your iPhone’s settings as well. These will come up during extreme weather situations or when rain is expected so that you know to bring along an umbrella when you head out. There is also a nifty feature of a radar view map in the app, which allows you to see the weather. This shows the temperature overlay, but you can customize the radar by choosing from nine different ones that show weather conditions such as rain or clouds.
You can also add a Weather Channel widget on your iPhone thanks to iOS 10 for a quick glance at the temperature in your area.
