Following the success of the Met Office weather app on the iPhone, weather forecasts from the Met Office are now available for Android. The app can be used on all android phones and includes a widget so information can be accessed directly from the dashboard.
Key features of the new android app include:
• Free to download
• Up to date weather forecasts and warnings from the Met Office
• At a glance five day overview
• Three-hourly location forecasts
• 5000 locations to choose from with multiple favourites.
You can download the app from the Android Marketplace.
The Android app is the latest addition to our offering for mobile users, complementing our existing products; Mobile Weather for feature phone users, Smarter Weather for smartphone users and the iPhone app for iPhone users.
A new updated version of the Met Office iPhone app is also now available, taking into account the feedback we have received on the original version. New features include three-hourly forecasts available up to five days ahead, UV forecast maps and information on the likelihood of rain or snow.
The iPhone app is available in the Apple App Store.
The widget can’t be resized if my tablet text size is increased. I want to give my tablet to my mum who has sight problems and needs a large font. This is very disappointing. Samantha 16 Jan 2016.
