The 10 best weather apps and widgets for Android - The Happy Android

Surely your grandparents consulted the weather report or the news on TV / radio just to find out what the weather would be like for the next few days. Around here in the Basque Country there was a shepherd who, watching his sheep, knew if the next day it was going to rain or not. He was a crack. But now everything has become technical: take a look at your mobile and see how you find lots of apps to predict or check the weather. Will the sun rise tomorrow or will we have another cloudy day?

In today's post we review some of the best weather applications to check the weather on Android. Let's go there!

The 10 best weather apps to check the weather on Android

When we install an application to predict and know what the weather is going to do, we usually look for a couple of things. On the one hand, that it is accurate and that it has good local information.

And if you have a good widget to take a quick look at, all the better. But be careful, remember that this type of widgets suck battery out of the jar as if there were no tomorrow.

Google App / Google Assistant

Sometimes the simplest is what works best for us. If all we want is know what the weather is going to do, without major complications, we don't even need to install a dedicated app.

If we already have the search engine app (it usually comes pre-installed in many cases) or the Google assistant on our Android, we just have to ask it "What is the weather going to be tomorrow?" and matter fixed.
