Weather Machine

Weather Machine is not the usual weather application. It is not only easy to use, reliable and complete (having more than 58,000 weather stations around the world), but it stands out with a beautiful and original graphical interface. To show weather information, Weather Machine uses beautiful and clear panels that float in the blue sky, allowing you to travel through time, projecting you into the future with simple and natural gestures of your hand. You can see all the weather details you need, including:
* Maximum and minimum temperatures
* Perceived temperature
* Speed of the wind and its direction
* Atmospheric pressure
* Dew point
* UV Index
* Humidity
* Probability of rain

And there's more: you can view the current situation of each locality, have forecasts of the next 5 days, and you can also go even more in detail consulting forecasts divided into day quarters for the next 48 hours.

Please consider that weather forecasts ARE NOT based on the presence and on the proximity of observation stations but rather on forecast grids initialized from model soundings and satellite data.
So the lack of nearby current condition stations DOES NOT actually mean a lower accuracy of the forecasts.
Anyway CustomWeather assured that observation stations will be increased from MADIS.

By rotating your iPhone, you can browse hour-by-hour weather forecasts and maps of your preferred regions. In addition, you can use the GPS receiver to accurately determine the closest location to you so to have related weather information.

You also have the possibility to customize the appearance of Weather Machine by choosing an image in your photo library to use it as background image.
