Our friends at OneLouder, the studio behind Play Store hits such as TweetCaster and FriendCaster, have let us know that its weather app has gotten itself a nice big upgrade today. We’re in version two, and with that comes new support for Android tablets. You’ll get an entirely new user interface tailored specifically for the bigger devices so you can get your comprehensive weather experience no matter which device you prefer to use.

The user interface in general has been refined for phone and tablet users alike, giving folks a nice, clean look at everything they need to know about the elements in the days ahead. One of the major changes users can look forward to is an improved layout severe weather alert notification screens.

An optimized radar screen, improved ongoing notification support, a map pin feature, lock-screen widgets for Android 4.2 owners (there’ll be a few different options to choose from in terms of styling, one of which you can see just above) and more are all part of today’s updates.

It’s an exciting piece of work for sure, and more exciting is the fact that it’s still free — you’ll just have to deal with an ad or two. If that bothers you then you’ll be happy to know that OneLouder gives you the ability to get rid of the ads for a nominal, small fee of $2. Give it a shot in the Google Play Store and see if 1Weather will finally give you a reason to get excited about weather.
