Why do I think Accuweather is the best weather app for Android?

Accuweather

There is a lot of talk lately about a new weather app that comes to Android and that was available for iOS, and it is Dark Sky, an app of the hyperlocalized type, which focuses on the weather that is going to do not only in a specific region , but it has very precise data of the weather that will be in the areas in which we live. We are not interested in whether it is going to be cold throughout the country, what interests us is whether or not we need a coat tomorrow when we go out. However, Dark Sky is not available in Spain yet, and even so, I do not see more advantages to this app than to Accuweather, for example.

I really like Accuweather for its Minutecast feature. When I look for data from the AEMET, I find two data about the day, morning and afternoon. And this is not useful to me to determine if this afternoon it will rain at a certain time or not. With Accuweather, I can know if it is going to rain in the next hour, and I can even know what the weather will be during the different hours of the day, with a level of precision that reaches the minute. Of course, the forecast can fail. It is much easier to get it right if you say it will rain this afternoon than if you say it will rain from 6:25 PM to 6:45 PM. But the truth is that the latter is really useful to me, because I can make plans for after 7:00 p.m., while the above prevents me from making plans knowing that it is going to rain, but not when it is going to rain.

That’s why I like Accuweather, for the precision with which it makes predictions. And yes, he may tell me that it is going to rain at 6:25 PM, and it starts to rain at 6:00 PM. But knowing something about the weather, you just have to intuit that what has happened is that the forecast has been advanced, and that therefore it will also stop raining sooner. I have not had more accurate apps than Accuweather, and as much as they launch hyper-localized weather apps, I think it will be very difficult for them to compete with this one.
