With the huge number of meteorological apps and websites around today, you may wonder what MeteoEarth has to offer, but this free app has plenty to recommended it. Providing glorious global, three-dimensional visualisations, this app is a cut above the average and uses high-quality graphics throughout to present the weather as you have never seen it before.

Forecasting With Style

Using technology that has been adapted from the sort of thing that professional TV weather presenters use for new bulletins, MeteoEarth provides cutting edge visualisations which are more like the sort of thing you'd expect from a leading game publisher, not a cost-free app. Want to keep a check on a weather front as it shifts across the North Atlantic toward Europe? Have the need to follow an extreme weather event in another part of the globe? It is all possible with this easy-to-use interface which makes interpreting the often confusing climate child's play. Simply spin the globe around to find the place you are interested and then zoom in and out, as desired. There's a detailed temperature map option as well as features like multi-weather display - for example, rainfall, cloud cover and wind speed layered up on top of each other.

Weather Checking

Ideal for anyone who travels a lot or who is going on holiday, MeteoEarth is a powerful worldwide weather reading tool. However, five day forecasting is only available with the premium version.

MeteoEarth is the revolutionary new weather app from MeteoGroup, the developers of WeatherPro.

MeteoGroup are releasing their very first app enabled for Mac! In response to customer demand and for the first time ever, MeteoEarth will be available to download for Mac users, with more detailed and high resolution images. WeatherPro for Mac is also coming soon, so keep an eye out for the release in 2014!

Adapted from a professional weather broadcast tool used by TV presenters around the world, and employing high-end gaming technology, never before used in a weather app, the stunning graphics on MeteoEarth bring the weather to life. Navigate the 3D globe at the touch of a button, spin seamlessly from place to place, zoom in on a rain front moving over Europe then pan out to see a hurricane approaching Florida.
