Weather Channel app gets optimized for Android tablets

Android tablet owners are getting another weather option starting today as the official Weather Channel for Android has gotten a nice upgrade. The biggest addition will be a user interface optimized for tablet devices, so you can see more forecasts and weather information on one screen. Getting stretched out for the bigger screens isn’t the only thing this huge 4.0 update brings, though.

Users can look forward to more detailed weather forecasts, a notification whenever the weather is expected to change within the next six hours, faster map features with past and future looks at the weather radar, severe weather bulletins, a “better” selection of videos, a much-needed refresh button, the ability to customize favorite places for more personalized widgets and notifications, and more.

The app is quite the looker whether you’re on tablets and phones, and while you might have already found your go-to weather experience it might be worth giving Weather Channel — one of the longstanding authorities on weather — another shot. The app is free, of course, so it should be no problem for you to do that in the Google Play Store.

    I’ve always been a fan of Weatherbug personally.
    It’s not high-end weather geek fare, but it gives animated radar and stays fairly well updated.
