Updated on April 27, 2015

What do most of the common folk do with the weather apps? Download them, skim through them once or twice a day when they inspect the temperature, may be check out a couple of forecasts and then shut them down. While simultaneously, there exists an ardent species of humans at some places on Earth which takes a fancy to the smartphone apps that do a whole range of mind-boggling wonders in presenting accurate and aesthetically well-comprised details about meteorological phenomena. The apps market is literally bombarded with an entire brigade of weather apps which makes it a ted taxing for the users to choose the one that suits their needs. So, I am going to help you by narrowing down a list of such weather apps that include something for everyone; a win-win situation for all; for the weather geeks as well as for the not-so-weather-savvy persons.
