SUMMARY: A full featured weather app for the Android platform

Check out appoLearning.com, because your kids deserve the very best educational apps!

The Weather Channel app for the Android platforum is easily the most comprehensive weather app available thus far. There are tons of features and plenty of information available for wherever you are and with GPS enabled on your phone, you can actually get really precise location based information as it's happening.

If you'd like, you can enter in a zipcode and set a specific area as a favorite. This makes it easy for checking weather for your home, work, or anywhere else. You can also have the app locate you and provide you with the same information. That infomation includes the weather right now, hourly breakdown, 36 hour report, and a 10 day report. If you've set it to locate you, it can even send you severe weather warnings.

The Weather Channel App also provides two other really great functions: A video weather report and a multilayered map. The video report is full out newscast style and streamed perfectly over WiFi. The map function works really well also and lets you select from multiple different layers to place over Google Maps so you can see the weather conditions.

This is definitely a handy app that makes finding out the weather for a specific location or where you are very easy. Considering how well this app works, it's easy to say that it's a must have app for the Android platform.
