Atmosphere a free weather app with a difference

Published by at

Newly made free, Atmosphere is a weather app with a difference, showing some serious meteorological data, with tie-ins to the developer's other Windows Phone app, the professional 'Aeroradar'.

From the Store description:

Atmosphere is a groundbreaking new take on getting the forecast. By reaching the equilibrium between simplicity and complexity, Atmosphere presents you with industry-leading weather data within a graphical, customizable, and usable interface.

  • 'Time Machine' brings historic weather data to your pocket.
  • Hourly Weather for the next 24 hours
  • Precipitation Intensity shows the intensity of an upcoming storm
  • Unique Weather Graphing features visualize the forecast
  • Multiple Locations
  • AeroRadar Integration
  • Change app background color to any color in the spectrum

Atmosphere 1.5, the largest update in Atmosphere's history, continues the tradition of inspirational innovation that has allowed us to dominate the charts since release. Not only does it include 23 cutting-edge new features, but it is also a major paradigm-shift from a paid app to a free one. Additionally, AeroRadar, our radar app for professional forecasters, has been seamlessly integrated into Atmosphere.

It's all free, aside from the 'Time Machine' feature - which the developer could explain better - even tapping through to buy in-app doesn't give any information on why the user might want 'historic weather data'. Anyway, here are some screens:

The main scrollable interface, per location, note the rain radar display (the UK is quite dry at the moment!) - tap at the bottom for daily or hourly breakdowns along similar lines...

Some more unusual weather stats, plus the flexibility to theme the app how you like....

Tapping through the radar map launches Aeroradar if installed, though location isn't passed through - you'd have to pan or recentre as needed in that app; (right) in extreme cases, weather alerts are shown for some areas.

You can grab this for free in the Store (ignore the possibly outdated details in the link, they'll get fixed in due course).

PS. Note that the linked Aeroradar utility is very USA-centric, so you may not want to grab that as well, depending on where you live.
