GO Weather Android App Review

[!–INSTALL:com.mediawoz.goweather–]Want a really cool weather app for your Android phone? Check out GO Weather which we recently stumbled upon from the Android Market. This Android app provides you with all the essential weather-related information you’d need daily with its world wide coverage of daily weather conditions – displayed in an animate weather-related background.

To be honest, I’m not really fond of weather apps, be it on my iPhone 4 or Google Nexus One Android phone. For me, it’s easy enough for me to look outside to tell whether it’s going to be hot or cold, rainy or shiny. But when I installed the GO Weather Android app, my perspective instantly changed. The app became my Android phone’s wallpaper of sort since I started using GO Weather Android app.

Why, wouldn’t you want on your Android’s screen? Besides the animated background that changes based on the weather condition in your area, this weather app for Android is perhaps the most comprehensive weather app in terms of the weather-related information it provides.


  • Live, local weather conditions and forecasts
  • Gorgeous 3D high-definition weather video
  • High-impact visual eye candy and satin-smooth animation
  • Access up to tens of thousands of locations around world
  • Fast access to saved locations (up to 10)
  • Cached weather data for offline viewing
  • Desktop Widget
  • LIVE Wallpaper included

Right smack at the upper right-hand corner of your Android phone’s screen, in bigger font is the current weather temperature in your selected are. The day’s weather forecast is just below the temperature including the High Temperature estimate and wind intensity.

Clicking on the “+more” option would reveal additional weather-related information including -Barometer, Humidty, Visibility, Dewpoint, Sunrise, and Sunset. You can toggle this information on and off  by simply tapping the “+more” option.

At the bottom of the screen you will see the current night weather forecast as well as forecast the day before and tomorrow and you can scroll this to see the next 7 days.  You can drag the bottom bar up to see the detailed forecast for your area.

Another nice feature of this app is the night and day shift button. Toggling this switch would change the default background of the app as it is displayed on your Android phone.

You can also add multiple cities to this app and switch between them by swiping the screen to the left or right.  In summary, the GO Weather Android App brings a new twist to a weather app on the Android phone.
