“WeatherPro is breathtakingly detailed and comprehensive.”
"Now that’s some impressive precision!"
"Weather Pro answers the question - what's the best Android Weather app?"
High resolution map engine
With WeatherPro’s high resolution weather maps, you get stunning graphics and granularity. We recommend a fast Wifi connection when using the high resolution maps. If you’re out and about with a slow internet connection then you can always switch temporarily to the low resolution radar and satellite.
When you first open the maps you will have a global view with city temperatures and weather icons. You can scroll from side to side by dragging the map with your finger and zoom in by tapping the map or pinching it with two fingers. Tap on any city name to add/remove the weather icon and temperature.
Connect to MeteoEarth! In the latest release, we’ve linked WeatherPro to our brand new app MeteoEarth so that you can switch between the two at the touch of a button. MeteoEarth uses high-end gaming technology never before used in a weather app to show live and forecast weather on a stunning 3D, interactive globe. Download MeteoEarth to move seamlessly from WeatherPro’s weather maps to the exact same location and zoom level on MeteoEarth’s 3D map. Click here for full details about MeteoEarth.
In the toolbar at the top you will find various useful icons:
- Tap on the yellow icon to add/remove the city names from the map.
- Tap on the arrow to activate GPS and zoom directly to your current location.
- Tap on the globe to see available regions (only available for Premium layers)
In the toolbar at the bottom you will find the timeline. This varies according to the layer you currently have selected. If the timeline is available then you can choose to play/pause the animation or you can manually scroll through at any speed you like. Some layers (precipitation type radar, radar and temperature) are colour coded and the key can be accessed by tapping on the information button in the lower toolbar.
On the right hand side you will see the “Layers” toolbar. Only Premium users can access the advanced weather information on the various layers. To hide the toolbar and view the map on the full screen, tap the icon in the top left corner of the Layers toolbar.
