There are probably more slick-looking weahter apps in the app stoire than there are gimmicky to-do list managers, but if you want a meteorological powerhouse in your pocket then there’s only one option: WeatherPro. In it’s paid form it will give forecasts for up to two weeks, along with all the radar and satellite animations you could need, plus detailed yet easily-read weather info.
Now, if you own a backyard weather station from Netatmo, you can view its data right there in the familiar WeatherPro interface.
Just head to the place search in the iPhone app (Netatmo integration isn’t yet available on the iPad) and you’ll see a new section for Netatmo weather stations. Enter your login details and you’re in, able to browse the weather in your back yard as well as that on the other side of the globe.
Neatomo stations are wireless weather boxes which measure any and every weather-related condition around them, and WeatherPro taps into your online account so you can access it even when you’re not at home. You can see “weather and air quality, measuring CO2 concentration, temperature, noise pollution, humidity,” right there on your iPhone.
Is this reason to buy a new weather station? Probably not, but if you have one, why not hook it up, right? And even if you don’t even have a back yard, you should probably check out the app anyway. I pay for a subscription every year because – here in Spain at least – the app gives the most accurate forecasts I have found.
