Description

Welcome to eWeather HD. Intuitive, comprehensive, and visually stunning iPhone and iPad weather app helps you prepare for the latest conditions with hourly, daily, and 10-day forecasts. eWeather HD provides all the weather info you need in one place, easily customized to track conditions for the places you care about. Get live temperature on your home screen, check high-resolution radar and view historical details so you’re always aware of weather on the way.

eWeather HD will help you to plan your outdoor activities with the amazing accuracy. Just take a look at the Weather Clock and you’ll be secured against any weather surprises.

eWeather HD can alert you to potentially life threatening weather via audible push notifications directly to your device even if your not currently using the app and your device is asleep and locked.

Different types of maps are available; a default map with temperature, radar and severe-weather warnings, temperature, water temperature, NOAA buoys data, visible satellite imagery, hurricanes, winter storms, active fires and fire risk.

Barometer - a diagram showing the pressure changes during the past 24 hours. Now you always know the cause of headaches or migraines if it is linked with changes in the air pressure. When a dangerous pressure change has been detected the diagram will change the color.

  • Awesome

    by troy glidewell

    I have used alot of weather app... This one is my favorite now.

  • Cool app!

    by Kyler Graham

    The only weather app you will ever need and use.

  • It does more than you might think

    by Lwe3

    Every time I use this, I find a feature I didn't know existed. Works very well.

  • Very nice app and very accurate.

    by Devin Patel

    Very nice and very accurate update.

  • Best weather app I've seen

    by meliacious

    Very user friendly and useful information.

  • Superb in function, appearance, & operation.

    by Bill - emeritus

    I have not looked at most apps and have not even downloaded most weather maps but of all the varied apps I own this one stands out as truly exceptional and superb. Once its interface is mastered the app is easily navigated and delivers virtually all of the current and forecast weather information you could want conveniently and completely including such unexpecteds as alerts, earthquakes, and a stunning satellite map with your choice of radar or cloud cover. In all modes it stunning to look at. In the Academy of Apps this definitely merits Academy Awards for imagination, design, and function.

  • Just the Right App

    by Hamil3693

    Great app that allows for a clear weather warning and ability to track across the US. Definitely recommend this app.

  • Ver 2.5

    by MonsoonAz

    This is my longest running weather (ver 3.0) app I've used for mobile IOS devices and for good reason it's easy to use and understand. iPod touch - Great app. The app updates faster than Weather Live and uses military weather stations or locations. Dew point temp would be greatly appreciated as an addition. My daily weather app that gives all the details including weather alerts and advisories. Very nice.

  • Best weather app

    by Fleck25

    Of the several I have tried and used I find this one to be the best right now and use it on a daily basis.

  • Cool app

    by Oron50

    Great visuals !

  • Nice app

    by n-t-f

    The graphics appear first class. It is easy to read, the maps are clear and the animations are fun. And for 99 cents it is a good investment. Highly recommended!!

  • Good app

    by Babyspain05

    I love it, cool app

  • Review of Weather HD

    by JerryVDK

    Weather is great little app. I use it everyday to see what I can expect in my locale. Thanks for making it available to me.

  • Good....

    by Marco A Carreon

    Like it, good Job !!

  • Great app

    by Crossbow454

    Very useful.

  • Great Weather App

    by Bo Peep 4000

    Love this app. I have quite a few weather apps and this one is just superb. Worth every penny and then some.

  • Very informative

    by Wyrrykk

    It has the right amount of info, and is presented in a nice manner without all the unnecessary fluffy photos.

  • Best Weather App

    by Trek_Racer

    I've looked at (and used) many. This is my favorite!

  • Good

    by Croackerjr

    I'm pretty happy with this. I work in the oilfield an I'm always outside it's pretty accurate to its forecasts.

  • Great weather app

    by LisafromtheMidwest

    Best one I've used. I really like the options for detailed weather info., sunrise, sunset, moonrise, moonset, etc. Yet, there's also a simple narrative description if I need that. And NO advertisements! Love this app! Thank you.

  • Almost the best.

    by Andrew Decker

    Everything is perfect except the stupid clock layout for hourly weather. Design is unique and cool but it takes longer to visualize the hourly weather changes. It's just not visually quick and not as easy as the rest of the apps, get rid of the dam clock and it would be the best. For now I will use myWeather+

  • Awesome app

    by Kleanda

    I've tried many weather apps and this one is, by far, the best! I often drive between Portland, Oregon & Sacramento, CA. During the winter months I have a few mountain passes on my route, I can readily check how my trip will be affected by storms along the way. Gives me peace of mind when to start my trip.

  • Regally good!

    by Lucmbar

    Very easy to use....love it

  • Former user

    by Emil43

    I'm sorry but I found this ap to be overrated and very confusing to navigate. After purchasing it I deleted it. I can find the info I want on the weather Chanel ap. disappointed

  • Weather App

    by Las.villas.home

    Great app. Weather at your fingertip at any time.

  • Worth the $

    by Arrrrrrrrrrrrg

    I'm trying to lose everything weather channel related and was willing to pay to do it. This was the obvious choice.

  • Clear and info packed

    by Dancieban

    I have a lot of weather apps. This one is becoming my go to first look.

  • Beautiful, informative

    by ChurchOrganist

    Has become my go-to weather app, on both my iPhone and iPad.

  • Great!

    by Allrc

    Leaps and bounds ahead of the rest.

  • Excellent Weather Application

    by LkStarnet

    Exellent. Many displays show well-organized and accurate data. Many display modes to choose from. Professional and prompt user support. Recommend highly for all users.

  • Almost perfect.

    by bleedmaizenblue

    Not easy to find stuff but when you do it's a great little app. Love the temp badge. Missing future radar if it had that like TWC app does it would be perfect.

  • One of the best apps I've encountered since I've had my iPad

    by Sillysoapy.com

    I love this app

  • A good weather app

    by Kyle Morgan

    This app is a pretty good weather app. My only request is a adding estimated accumulations for snow.

  • Easy and Accurate !!!!

    by Tish tv

    Handy and intuitive Very easy and informative app

  • Great content, well organized

    by Torque Master

    Have several other weather apps & pitched a couple for this......like the two forecast models, the "clock weather" and the almanac info. Nice job.

  • The best weather app on the AppStore!

    by Macatron

    The title says it all!! :D This weather app is always accurate and offers wealth of useful information. The developers are also very helpful, and are very fast at getting back to you if you contact them.

  • Best so far...

    by Constance Ewing

    I've used many and like this best.

  • Good wx views

    by Tedfiddle

    Nice app with easy operation.

  • Love the accuracy

    by cherie king

    I love the graphics and how accurate it is. The earthquake feature is a plus even living in a non prone area. A plus would be to add volcanoes since some earthquakes are because of volcanic activity.

  • Incredibly Good Weather App

    by .ANGLER.

    The more I explore, the more I adore. It has all you need.

  • Great!

    by EduFarah

    This is the best one!

  • Weather apps

    by Shelby Coady

    One of the best

  • A story about weather and this app.

    by PamRL

    When I was growing up—in the olden days—all I had to do to know about the weather was look out the window. It is easy to see the sky on the high plaines of central Montana. That was how I set my day, around the weather. When I moved to Michigan, twenty-five years ago, I could not read the sky. I always carried my umbrella on the wrong day, and the humidity stopped me in my tracks. Thunder storms were way too close to the ground. Now, I only think of Montana weather with nostalgia; I read the weather digitally. That is why I really like this app. I love it that I can also track the weather in Montana, where most of my family still lives. This winter, I feel all the more snug in my house when those alerts pop up that tell me when the temperature "feels like" it is below zero. Or, there is a fog warning. All that information—at my fingertips. At least I have this app to replace that step up to the window, and to cope with my sky blindness. It reads the sky for me while I negotiate the time-driven Michigan world.

  • Great information

    by Resortonahill

    All great information. No ads blaring out like other weather apps. I agree 6 stars for a 5 star weather app!

  • This app is the bomb.

    by MikeinMilton

    I ride a motorcycle and where ever I'm at I know what's coming. Don't leave home without it.

  • The very best

    by Kyler Graham

    As a recently retired navigator for the US Navy, I find the information to be thorough and top notch. I am able to accurately guage the weather in whatever area I'm in given all the information at a glance.

  • Best of the best!

    by troy glidewell

    The most comprehensive,well thought out, stable and eye appealing combo weather, e quake and early warning system out there. Also has sharp hi def radar and alerts. Thanks for your dedication to putting out quality.

  • Awesome

    by Boeingbuff

    It's the best weather application out there.

  • Updated review

    by abwong

    eWeatherHD is available on both phone and pad and that's a winner. But I found an annoying bug today. The app got one of my cities confused with another and I couldn't get the app to right itself. Quit it several times and still was mixed up.

  • My wife's favorite weather app

    by EdwinGolfer

    Easy to read once you get the hang of it's features!

  • Best weather app!

    by Edoras Spinner

    Love it! Easy to use and clear to understand!

  • Favorite weather app

    by geofan49

    Having tried more than 10 of the iPad weather apps, this one has been my favorite now for more than six months. The only thing missing is a quick overview, showing the current weather stats for each of my 7 or 8 favorite local and worldwide locations. eWeather HD app. 5/5 stars. Keep up the good work, and stay ahead of the pack.

  • Great app!

    by Timmy Tom Thorton

    Great app!!!

  • Great weather app!

    by Nevadaslick

    Very easy and informative app! Nice job!

  • I agree, one of the best weather apps!

    by Guru2Gadget

    This weather app has everything from weekly forecast to earthquakes! All my friends thank me for sharing it with them. Keep up the fantastic job. I can't wait and see what features will be added next. Not that it needs any!

    by Abbendad

    Powerful app. Only wish it would offer a barometric pressure alert.

  • Great Presentatiom

    by livermore99

    Great presentation (layout). Good information.

  • :/

    by CnC Thompson

    It worked great for a couple of weeks and then I now have no radar. :(

  • Easy on the eyes and a lot of data

    by rtrnow

    This app is great and of the numerous weather apps I have this is the ONE I go to first!

  • Great design well executed!

    by Raven_Fox

    The most comprehensive and well designed weather app on the App Store.

  • Pretty Awesome -

    by Laurlament

    We had a wicked storm last month and it was spot on as to when and how long it would last. The graphics are great the accuracy of the storm predictions have been at around a 9 out of 10. It's def worth paying for⚡☀⚡

  • Can't live without it!

    by Caricamp

    Best wether app out there. I have a touch of arthritis that set into an injured knee and the barometric pressure meter is fantastic. But even without that this is still the best weather app.

  • Very informative

    by thelmazgirl

    I wake up every morning to heckle weather to see how to plan my Day or what I should wear according to the weather. The forecast never fails.

  • 7 star app on a 5 star scale

    by DanknBeanz77

    So accurate I can plan my business around it , when I plow it's like it's there with me looking out the window telling me what's going on.couldnt imagine a day without it !!!

  • Best Weather App yet

    by Tadpole73

    I've tried at least a dozen weather apps over the years, and this is the best so far!

  • Top Notch

    by AlexFlyBoy

    Have found three great weather apps. This is one.

  • Very good

    by Ginger508

    But I agree that could any of the weather apps just please tell me in text what the weather is for a paragraph or so? Like the barometric pressure graphic

  • Excellent Weather App

    by Avt123

    This app is beautifully designed and extremely accurate. The weather wheel is awesome, and the radar has a bunch of great features. This app recently helped out and kept me up to date on a snow storm that swept across the northeast US. This is a must have weather app!

  • All you need in one app

    by Uninspired Alias

    I'm tough to please. Very few apps stay on my iPad longer than an hour. eWeather is an exception to the rule... Mapped quake data, water temperatures, weather radar, zoomable satellite images and of course, forecasts. My only suggeestion for improvement would be the ability to see weather radar changes play in 5 minute increments. Well done!

  • Great App

    by Glideman51

    Very accurate around the world.

  • This is awesome

    by peepeye11

    This is awesome just needs a radar to see the rain

  • Beautiful App!!

    by Korvet

    All the information you need and in a very nice package!

  • Great App

    by Ksj418

    Very Accurate! A lot of information that is very interesting to check out. Love this App.

  • Great app, missing one thing

    by MR Evil Evo

    Excellent app. Will give 5 stars, when a description becomes available. Throw a description of quantity of rain or snow that should be received that day. Put it in the drop down menu. I.E: 2"-6" of snow tonight or rain today accumulating to 2"

  • Does everything!

    by Sleepyhead scientist

    Your own personal weather map! Great for traveling, keeps multiple destinations current. Predicts, shows radar, even shows pressure! Love it! New versions seems fine

  • Don't Trust

    by Friendly Techs

    Don't trust this data 100% Moon data is off. Wind direction icon points the opposite way it should.

  • Best all-inclusive weather app

    by Nada1591

    I rarely take time to write reviews… I have purchased more than a dozen weather apps. This one I use most frequently. I appreciate the temperature badge. The graphics are beautiful, the interface functional. I can scan the world map easily and look at watches and warnings, water temps, earthquakes globally. Great info access and it provides a powerfully simple means to get a big picture of the present weather dynamics. …I’d LOVE to have this app available for the OS as well. Great job, Elecont.

  • Review

    by jmbourbeau

    This is the best weather app period, although the badge temp for the last month has been saying 32 degrees. I have deleted and reloaded the app 3 times and rebooted the phone as well to no avail!!

  • Very nice app accurate

    by Marcelle McKenzie

    Works well really on app

  • Wonderful!

    by Funkmaster356795790

    My weather app search has finally ended! Update: idk how the regular storms show up on radar, but the winter storms don't completely show up - only the worst parts. That's too bad because I really like this app otherwise.

  • EWeather HD

    by Murph279

    My new favorite weather app! I normally compare the reports in about five different weather apps. Previously, had preferred Weather Bug app.... Especially for its map radar graphics. EWeather HD have is now my preferred weather app. The graphics are spectacular especially when set in motion. Like how I can fine-tune how the map works in settings.

  • Great App

    by Unit5

    $1.99 well spent

  • Im in love

    by Cyrus021

    This app is like having all weather apps out there with out any complication. Hands down the best

  • Best ever

    by NM1R

    I love this app. It's the very best wx app I have ever used bar none.

  • Good

    by hardcorehockey

    But not quite perfect - would like better daily description.

  • Great WX app

    by Hightower007

    Use it every day. Great app, highly recommended. 1/21/14 update review. Pros: Like the ability to switch providers fast with a single button press. Also this is the only weather app that allows for a 6 hour radar loop. For weather nuts, this is a great feature. Con: Latest app update incorrectly displays the wind direction. If the wind is coming from the north, app shows wind from the south. This is a simple programming oversight and I'm sure they'll fix it soon. Don't let this small oversight prevent you from considering purchasing this app. This review from iPhone 5s & 4s with iOS 7.0.3

  • So far - so good

    by Works 4 me 2

    Only had this for a couple of days, but so far it works great. I like the temp on my icon and all the info available (pressure, humidity etc).

  • Outstanding !

    by JohN BERGAMO

    Best weather app I've used! Very accurate. Due to the nature of out business, we need to monitor not only the weather conditions but also the wind. We've tried other weather apps and have found this to be outstanding !
