Amazingly beautiful 3D images of our planet draws your attention for so long that you may forget that the application has other useful features that allows you easy access to precise, global weather information. Features: • Easily select different cities using the city carousel with national flags  • Chic 3D “home screen” with high-quality real-time image of the earth, atmosphere, the stars and the sun  • 15-day forecast chart with detailed daily weather conditions, independent day and night temperature charts  • 48-hour hourly forecast with detailed information with real-time changing of chart step  • Database of 80 000 cities with weather information, quick look-up and automatic detection of location • Temperature on the icon badge • Customized Weather Widget • Weather Maps The main features of “Weather Now” are the “home screen” and the forecast page with a unique way of scaling the charts. On the “home screen”, you can get information on the selected location such as local time and current weather with detailed weather conditions, and, of course, an incredibly beautiful three-dimensional image of the globe with realistic-looking atmosphere, the sun and the stars. You can manually turn it, increase and decrease its size, run the slow spinning animation or stop it.

Unique 48-hour forecasts from over 80,000 locations around the world provide a level of coverage and detail that simply cannot be found elsewhere.  Current weather information includes: description, air temperature, wind direction and force, humidity, dew point, pressure, visibility, as well as comfort index with reference to current weather conditions.  Detailed weather forecast information includes: description, day and night air temperature, wind direction and force, humidity, UV index, probability of precipitation, and comfort index with reference to current weather conditions.

    It’s alright. Weather map always reverts to wind settings after a couple of hours even when other favorite weather parameters are set
  • Awesome but temperature is off

    I love the style and it's beautiful but the temperature is totally off by about 20 degrees higher than what my other two weather apps shows.
  • Not accurate at all

    We are having major winter storm here. Heavy snow outside, but the app is showing “overcast, chilly”.
  • So much potential wasted.

    Yes, it's pretty. But that's about it. Fix the weather accuracy (the main purpose for having a weather app to begin with). I've had this app for months and it's still so very, very off. Fix the bug and the stars will go up. (Not the ones in the sky.)
  • رائع جدا

    I really like how it elegantly displays a graphic representation of the forecast. However, the data source they use results in an inaccurate forecast making this app worthless until this fix this. What is the purpose of checking the forecast when the results are inaccurate?
  • Wildly inaccurate

    The app has a cool UI, and a nice widget. I like that the widget includes the date and time with the weather. That seems like a no-brainer that many others get wrong. The problem is that the forecast is useless, and the temperature seems to be off by a consistent 12-20 degrees. Where do they get their weather information? If an app looks pretty, but can't fulfill its primary function, what use is it? None.
  • Free???

    Like another review I was disappointed when app tracker told me this was "free". It's free except what you have to pay to upgrade to full functionality like temp on badge and use in notification center. There are plenty of totally free weather apps out there that work just fine without having to pay $4.99. The app is very nice visually and if the upgrade was only $1.99 I would do it but $5 is a little steep for what you get for your money. Two "basic" features.
