I see this question asked quite a lot. While there are plenty of sites out there that have created similar listicles, most of them appear to be pretty old at this point.

In this round-up, I'll take a look at many, albeit not all, of the apps that use the Quick Settings Tile API.

Even browsing the category is a daunting minefield of Froyo-stuck designs and mediocre data and options. So why bother with a third-party weather client, especially when Google Now has its own weather card, Android comes with a News & Weather app, and a simple Google search for the name of your city with the word weather turns up the result you're looking for?
Details for one. Weather apps can provide a breadth of information that Google's knowledge graph and cards don't have. Read More
