If you've ever been on your way out the door while trying to decipher a delayed weather radar map, this is your lucky day. Already a notable app for iOS users, Sky Motion has arrived on Android to make sure you always know when inclement weather is on the way.
This is not a full-featured weather app, and it's not supposed to be. Sky Motion specializes in hyper-local geolocation weather reports. By using a combination of GPS, radar maps, motion tracking, and prediction algorithms, Sky Motion tells you exactly when it's going to rain. It's not just rain, though. Sky Motion can clue you into approaching snow, freezing rain, hail, and sleet as well. Many forecast apps give you data from weather stations that might be miles away, but Sky Motion tracks storms in square kilometer segments.
The app itself can pipe in forecasts updated in 1, 5, or 15 minute intervals. It will find your location by GPS, but you can also manually enter locations. Sky Motion forecasts only go out 2 hours, but that's probably enough to plan your attire in the morning. I wouldn't call Sky Motion a Holo app, but it's not bad looking and has an action bar of sorts. The app is free with a persistent ad at the bottom of the screen.
