Hello! This is a short review of AccuWeather Android app, one of the best weather apps for our Android devices.

There is a great number of weather apps available in the Google Play and many other sources. However,  AccuWeather clearly stands out.  This is probably the greatest, the simplest and yet the most powerful Android weather app.

Let's see what it is all about.

AccuWeather Android App

Accu Weather Android App Available in Two Versions

AccuWeather is available in the free version (AccuWeather for Android and) in the paid version (AccuWeather Platinum).  

The basic difference between these two versions is that in the Platinum version there are no ads. Other features remain the same.

First Impression: Simplicity Rules

After launching the app for the first time, I was amazed at its simplicity and intuitiveness. I expected something big with tons of options, notifications and who knows what. I was positively disappointed. In the screenshots below, you can see the app's interface:
