As there is no shortage of weather applications in the Android Market today, there are few who offer the service in style, accompanying rich and stylish graphics with its application and widgets.

With 130,000 locations around the world available at your fingertips, you’ll be in the know how for weather conditions no matter where you are and where you go. In addition, the app supports a plethora of widget sizes for your home screen’s real estate convenience as well as alerts and warnings for your local area. The app touts to offer one of the most accurate forecasts around as it works in conjunction with your device’s GPS to pin point your precise location. Furthermore, the app offers some extra added features like a world clock, barometer which trends daily air pressure, sunrise and sunset times for most major cities, moon phases as well as set and rise times, multiple location monitoring support and the ability to notify you of temp, moon phase and other conditions directly in your Android device’s notification bar.
