Weather alternative with a Canadian twist? Tired of TheWeatherNetwork?

With the weather in Canada ever changing from one coast to another, we need to keep an eye out for the temperature. Many weather app in the Play store takes the heat index into consideration versus using the humidex value. This is where Weather Post (Canada) comes into play.


Kevin Zhou is a developer based in Waterloo, Ontario and he’s put together a really nice looking material design Canadian Weather application based on the information available from Environment Canada.

The application provides you with a detailed forecast for the day, a small recap of what to expect with a listing of the 7 days. If you take the time to click on the map symbol, you’ll be greeted with a live map condition in the surrounding area. This will allow you to view the possible precipitation that you may receive.

As for features, the application doesn’t give much, it’s pretty straight forward and that’s what counts, however, the app provides notification of the current weather condition with the pull down of the notification tray.

You can click on any of the screen captures to see a larger version.

You can definitely check it out and maybe you’ll just fall in love with it. The application is available on the Google Play store and for a small $0.99 you can remove the ads.
