Fahrenheit displays the temperature on your Home Screen icon, Notification Center and Lock Screen.

Fahrenheit is a stunning weather application that uses latest technology to show you the current temperature of any location right on your iPhone/iPad Home Screen! Beyond the real-time temperature on the Home Screen Fahrenheit also is the number one weather application giving you very detailed weather information of unlimited cities world wide, packed in a gorgeous design and easy-to-use user interface!

- Apple: Staff Favorite & App Store Essentials - Plan Your Vacation!
- TUAW.com: The most feature-rich weather application!
- Macworld.com: A wealth of weather information
- Cult of Mac: Must have iOS app!

Now, in addition to the temperature badge, you can set up the app to notify you of any changes in the weather as they happen, right in the Lockscreen and Notification Center.

It works really easy. We have Notification Setting that allows you to receive a Popup/Banner alert from our Push Server. This alert will also appear in the Notification Center and Lockscreen to show the temperature of the last update. You can set the number of notifications as you prefer (max 1, max 5 etc) in the iPad/iPhone general settings.

Fahrenheit is backed by an online web server that uses Push Technology to push the current temperature of any location to your iDevice. This makes it possible to always automatically have the up-to-date temperature displayed in the red badge at the top-right of the Fahrenheit icon on your Home Screen. Fahrenheit supports all iOS Devices: iPhone 4s/4, iPhone 3Gs/3G, iPad 2, iPad and all iPod Touch devices!
It is not possible to display the temperature in Celsius. You have to download the Celsius application instead.

Fahrenheit brings you all weather information available for every location in the world and a 10-day forecast. In addition to these powerful forecasting features, Fahrenheit provides more comprehensive weather information. This includes detailed information regarding cloud cover and rainfall totals. Fahrenheit also gives users information about sunrise and sunset times.

Customer Reviews

  • Works Great

    by ReenuKV

    Works as expected. Very clear detailed weather information. I use it everyday since the past week. The only reason I am giving it 4 stars is because I haven't uses it long enough to give it five stars.

  • Excellent App

    by Trash01

    SW is very fast and very accurate

  • Handy App!

    by PReeeeezy

    As a frequent traveler this is a must have app. Plus our 7 children live and travel in many different countries, so it's always nice to know what they're experiencing with weather.

  • Great!

    by NELS007


  • Simple, effective, & accurate...

    by Balzac

    At-a-glance easy or just one tap for more in depth, detailed information. This is the weather app on my home screen.

  • Clean Appearance - But some issues...

    by TVB Wisconsin

    It’s a nice clean crisp looking app - mimicking the latest IOS appearance features. But there are a few problems. The badge on the face of the app that shows temperature, only shows temperatures in positive - never negative which represents below zero temperatures. So the temperature reading is misleading in a major way. Is this a summer time only app? Also, it would be nice to know the authority upon which this app receives it’s data - Underground Weather, Weather Channel, Accuweather, etc. Or do you use billy-bob’s weather stations. It makes a difference. Some authorities are better than others - more accurate and dependable.

  • Best weather app out there

    by dogs97

    I've tried a lot of different weather apps, and by far, this is the best. You get all the info you could possible want.

  • Great app

    Great app. Lots of info in one place. Uncluttered.

  • Great App!

    by traviswohlfeil

    An all around great app. I love that the current temp is on my home screen icon. Very accurate.

  • Fahrenheit

    by Rational Actor

    This is a useful utility that gives a summary of primary data for your locations of interest. The missing star reflects in part the absence of access to greater detail, in part an unnecessary complexity in setting the icon to show current temperature. I like the design of the basic display.

  • Awesome Weather App

    by HDCharger

    I use it daily and really like having the temp displayed at a glance without having to open.

  • Good app

    by deebler303

    Worth the money.

  • Go to weather app

    by BriceO

    Great app. No issues. Does what it says it does.


    by James Graham

    Can always see the temperature as a badge!!

  • Favorite Weather App

    by Adele5

    I really like that it shows the current temperature on the home screen. The weather forecast is more accurate than others I have.

  • B+ App

    by nrk22

    Aesthetically the app looks great. It's a nice alternative to the apple weather app because you can expand future days weather. Overall 3.5-4 stars...

  • Needs F and C on same display

    by DL2011win

    Why can't we have F and C on the same display?

  • Waste of Money

    by Architect 100.1

    The App does not work as mentioned. It consistently states in order to get and use certain BASIC features, I need to PURCHASE the paid App. I HAVE and PAID for the paid APP. I also sent a help question to the company over 4 days ago and still no answer! DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY!!!!! HORRIBLE SERVICE!!!!!

    This app is very nice I like the pop ups when significant weather is going to happen.

  • It does the job

    by itunesandappstorenickname

    Settings > Notification Center > Fahrenheit > turn off banners, show 1 recent item. Would like more customization of NC text ^ makes this app's experience wonderful

  • Love the badge

    by james33440

    Love the badge. However, regardless what the temp was it kept reverting to 63 degrees. Had to open to refresh. Really aggravating. Also the forecast wasn't accurate.

  • Works Great.

    by Dandy D

    Very useful and easy to use. The current temperature showing without opening the app sets it apart from the rest. I prefer this source for weather information over the others.

  • PopUps

    by KlytusLord

    Interrupts user with popups begging to be rated and reviewed. Automatic one star rating.

  • Description not clear...

    by Tim-in-TX

    I wanted an app that let me put weather info on my lock screen and thought I found it. It was not until I paid for it and downloaded it that I found out that feature only Works on an iPhone 5...did not see that info in the description. Now I have an app that I can't use unless I upgraded phone.

  • great app

    by binictican

    great APP for my needs!!!

  • Better than the reinstalled

    by bbuzzy

    I like it much better then the preinstalled app.

    Dependable; what more could you ask for? - Richard, Spokane, WA

  • New Review

    by VT-Renegade

    My new review of this app has changed it from 5 stars to 1 star for 3 reasons. 1. When temp goes Below zero the app does not show a minus symbol in front of the temp like it should. 2. There is no app feedback support link that I could find. 3. Last when I clicked the link for the developer website it brought me to a does not exist page which means they don't actually have a web page for support of their apps or the link is broken. Since I have the paid version of this app I expect some kind if updates and ways to report buggy app issues. Since you don't offer these and things are not up to par with the app. My review and opinion of your service has been greatly reduced. Show your customers some support and fix these issues and I will write a new review once a working update is released.

  • Excellent

    by Jhiller

    Very simple and clear. It looks very nice on home screen and the temp is shown for easy viewing.

  • Neat

    by Pete McD

    Very easy to use. Very useful. Use everyday.

  • Well worth a buck.

    by deftdrummer1

    I have been enjoying this up for a few days now after using the light version. This app is well worth the dollar cost for the visual elements and accurate weather readings. I also appreciate the low battery consumption for displaying the temperature in real time on the home screen. I would, however like to see settings added where I can have the app display the temperature depending on my GPS location or a default of my choosing. Other than that that app is splendid thanks so much to the developer!

  • Great app - on my home screen

    by Starksw

    I love having the temp at a glance. It is okay to have the temp be only one location but would be nice to change to current location. It is rarely accurate. I guess they don't want to constantly turn on communication and be blamed for running down the battery. It is on my iPad and iPhone.

  • Excellent app

    by Robdrob

    Very accurate and very helpful having current temp on screen. Well worth the .99 . Thanks and keep the good work..

  • Very nice app

    by rTut99

    This is the only app that I could find that correctly updates the weather in the home screen.

  • Awesome

    by Assfhygnknuc drsvhbkj

    This app is great I recommend it to everyone

  • Great App

    by 361live

    Would be nice if the temp changed per location since the app is using you location services.

  • Doesn't display negative temps?

    by Kathi Schwan

    When you live in a cold climate, you always look for a good weather app. However, seeing a 2 doesn't tell me if it's 2 above or -2 below until I open in. Why not include the negative sign on the home screen ?

  • Accurate and Useful

    by Jilo57

    The perfect app for weather information. Has everything except radar images. Is there a way to show temp with the time on the lock screen?

  • Temperature

    by Drake2445664

    Works great and it's simple. I like the temperature display on the home screen. I ride my ebike to college every day and I can see at a glance how warm I need to dress fro the day.

  • Great App!

    by BlueScrubs

    Helps me keep tabs of weather here in Houston during the winter months because it's so unpredictable!

  • Great app!

    by Externalheart

    If there was only a way for the badge to indicate that it was below zero that would have pushed me to 5 stars. By far my favorite weather app.

  • Great!

    by Jason Bohannon

    This app is the first one I look at in the morning. Easy to read and dead on.

  • Used to love it, but ...

    by jw012314

    ... this app doesn't work for me any more. This past week I visited the D.C. area and set my home location to D.C. Since I have returned home, I reset my home location back to my home city, but the app keeps reverting to the temp in D.C. I have deleted all other locations except my home, deleted and re-installed the app, rebooted my phone - no luck. It will briefly display my home temp when I open the app, but then it switches back. It seems permanently stuck on the wrong city. Would be 4 stars if this was fixed! (I have the paid version.)

  • Still the best

    by AbqSlim1

    I've tried many weather apps but this one, for me, has the nicest presentation and the right amount of info (not too much, not too little). Temps are generally accurate in my area and just as accurate as most other apps. For 99cents this one is a no-brainier!

  • ArtB

    by ArtB3

    Great app. Lots of info in one place.

  • Great App

    by Fink\\

    Take the weather app from Apple and use this in its place

  • Nice App

    by Jelbeery

    Displays temp on home screen plus more!!!

  • Mr. Hale

    by Bob 76

    Very useful. Great weather app. I like te local temp feature. Gives me a guide as to how to dress for the day.

  • Delivers as advertised

    by Jeraft

    For the price, this app delivers a good overview of the temperature at a glance and a good map showing weather conditions. I have 12 weather apps with some delivering more data but at a higher price. I like getting a quick reading of the temperature before checking other weather conditions.

  • Very limited, inaccurate info

    by PSG9001

    The temperature reading is generally off by 5+ degrees. No location tracking. It's great if you never travel beyond your set location. Very poor. Two stars for the icon design. Weather On is a much better app that a also displays the temp as a badge. It's accurate.

  • The best

    by Gregg Marston

    Best weather app I have tried

  • Useful live icon, odd precipitation readings, interior layout mediocre

    by Ronald Caltabiano

    This is my main weather app because the live temperature badge is so useful. But the information in the app is not beautiful and sometimes difficult to read in either the light or dark setting. It's a bit frustrating that precipitation readings are given only as rain, even hen the forecast is for snow.

  • Just what I was looking for

    by AppleSucksDick999

    I like to be able to see the current temp without opening an app. Keep up the good work.

  • Great!!

    by Zach Gilbert

    Great app far better than apple stock weather app!

  • Great app

    by kingaster

    Great app keep improving it.

  • Very accurate

    by Firstcl

    I love this app because it is extremely accurate.

  • A+ Weather, Ca to Mo and back!

    by MeUsWeToo

    Traveled from Ca to Ut to Wy to Co to Ks to Mo to Ks to Ok to Tx to Nm to Az to Ca and the app was right on for perfect weather conditions!

  • Great app

    by Mush1751

    Excellent source. Easy to use.

  • Handy, but...

    by DBigWoo

    This is a handy little app. I like seeing the temp on the icon and can understand the inability to do negative numbers (perhaps jumping to obviously too large ones could be an option where 415 =-15; but that would also be ugly). The one thing that annoys me is that it does not give snow depth estimates (that I see). It is telling me we should expect 0.512" of precip, while I want to somewhere see 5-11" of snow.

  • Perfect for me

    by Eskayoh

    This app gives me what I want in a weather app. Accurate information in a no nonsense format.

  • Review

    by Tom Benedek

    Wonderful and simple alarm clock for anyone to use. I highly recommend this. This by far is one of the most wonderful and comprehensive programs for anyone to use. I have tried using many others, and by all means this particular alarm works better than most I've seen.

  • Great

    by Julie32055

    Love being able to just look down and see the temp in the morning, and then open it to see how to dress for my day. Never have had any bugs or issues in the 2 years I have used it!

  • Broken

    by MikeBWright

    In app temperature rarely matches icon temperature. Frequently the temperature in this app differs from the stock weather app. I can't rely on this app at all.

  • Good functionally, outdated design

    by dougw012

    Like the simple functional design of the app, yet it has plenty of weather detail. The design and graphics however are very iPhone 3. Please update and give a sleeker design and it would be 5 stars.

  • Thunderchickin

    by Thunderchickin

    Very accurate!!!! This app is good stuff!

  • great, even here!

    by tonycoT1

    we've had "issues" with software that ignores Santa Fe, NM as a city, and defers to Denver for the weather, and it's ALWAYS quite a bit different here when you move 400 miles south...thanks for including us!

  • It's noting great

    by JackD9

    It's a weather app.

  • Weather app

    by Natty Suarez

    It works for me. Im surprised to read some of the low ratings. I just came back from vacations and it worked just perfect everywhere we went

  • Good app

    by BdAce5

    Save time looking for weather

  • Really 'Cool' views

    by akilter

    This app really gives a birds' eye view of weather... I like to see the upcoming weather patterns (separate rain, wind, clouds, overview from satellite imagery & data) as the patterns flow by and where they will impact me in the future.

  • At a glance temp on home screen

    by dfabs

    This app is great because it cleanly displays the current temp on the home screen. The app's extended forecast is helpful, too.

  • Excellent app!!

    by beantown7

    My no. 1 weather go to app now!!!

  • Best weather app

    by chusfriends

    This is what Apple's app should do!!

  • Great app

    by Barbunc

    The best part is the badge shows the current temp. Love it.

  • New update lost my location

    by jenpop68

    Was fine with the App, then with the new update, I can no longer add the city I live in - doesn't come up when I try to re-enter it... I know it's not a big city, but other small locations around me are located!

  • It works...!

    by Thomas Lawrence

    Read earlier reviews and thought I would try it even though those earlier reviewers were NOT impressed... I like it...! It just works on my iPad and iPhone...! has all the info I want...!!! only thing I would change is how fast the temp is updated...

  • Great App

    by Needs some work...

    Highly recommend for iPad!

  • Just what I need

    by Leighton Wood

    I don't need advertising, fancy, slow loading graphics, etc. I need the weather. Now, later and for the next few days. This app does just that. Go for it. Or, suffer with the Weather Channel on your iWhatever and learn to love waiting...

  • Inaccurate

    by Big Funky77

    I never write reviews but I'll write one for this garbage. It is always wrong. It doesn't match what's outside the window. Also, it's predictions are never right either. If it says it's going to rain in 3 days then you can safely bet that it will not.
