BBC Weather for Android
The BBC continue to develop mobile apps for Android and iOS, the latest release is a dedicated Weather app. The app which is now available from the Google Play Store and the iTunes Store has 5 day and 48 hour forecasts you can also drill down to visibility, humidity and pressure.There are also international forecasts and for Android there is a widget with shows five days of weather.

The iOS version is designed for the iPhone and so doesn’t look great on the iPad which is a shame. The Android version includes NFC sharing of locations which while doesn’t seem that important it’s good to see the BBC trying new techniques.


  • Location aware five-day forecasts and 48 hours of UK based hourly forecasts.
  • International locations and three hourly forecast details.
  • Extra detail for each hour including Visibility, Humidity and Pressure.
  • Settings to change your app preferences.
  • Ambient transitions to provide more context about the weather at your location.
  • Accessibility for screen readers via voice over.
  • An Android widget with a five-day overview.
  • BBC design principles with usability at the core.
