1weatherapp

Almost one year ago to the day, OneLounder released what is still one of my favorite weather apps: 1Weather. It's a fantastic looking app that delivers useful information about the weather conditions in your area, both current and extended. And, as of today, the app has been updated to v2, which brings a handful of new features to this already-fantastic app:

  • Tablet support
  • Refined UI
  • Optimized radar section
  • Added map pin
  • Improved ongoing notifications
  • Lock Screen widgets

The tablet layout is both intuitive and informative, highlighting the most pertinent information on the main screen: current temp, wind speed, humidity, hourly forecast, and more.

There's no shortage of weather apps in the Android Market - they're all pretty useful and give basically the same information. So how do you make one that stands out? If you ask OneLouder Apps, the same guys behind apps like Tweetcaster, Friendcaster, and BaconReader, they'd tell you to make it one of the most visually stunning apps in the Android Market. And that's exactly what they've done.

We've long been fans of OneLouder apps here at Android Police, so it comes as a bit of a shock to see that the company was purchased – along with its parent company, Handmark Inc. – by Sprint. For those who may be unfamiliar with the name OneLouder, the dev team is responsible for apps like 1Weather, Friendcaster, and TweetCaster, just to name a few. Handmark, on the other hand, is more of an all-in-one app store for Android, BlackBerry, Windows Phone/Mobile, Palm, and the like.

If you've ever used the app Cocktail Flow by Distinction Ltd, you know that they take design and aesthetics seriously. Their new (and only second) app, Weather Flow, continues that trend and delivers what I believe is the best-looking weather experience on Android to date. And it's not hard to see why:

And if you don't like pretty pictures of wheat fields and idyllic dirt country roads, there's an alternative theme in Weather flow that I actually prefer:

You get a bit more information (the hourly forecast and daily forecast are both displayed simultaneously), and that beautiful ICS-style theming and color scheme.
