Weather HD – one of the best simple weather apps for the iPad – has been updated this week, to Version 1.6.2.
In addition to compatibility with iOS 5, the two most notable improvements in this new version are new and updated weather animations and new weather details: Heat Index, Dew Point, and (just in time for winter) Wind Chill.
There are now a large number of apps that have added weather animations that mimic those used in this app, but I still think Weather HD offers the best ones. They’re the most striking by far. This is the only weather app on my first home screen and the one I always tap on first.
Here’s the remainder of the change list for this update:
➤ FIX: Fixed a bug in the Christmas Edition animations.
➤ FIX: Various improvements and fixes.
And here’s an App Store link for Weather HD; it’s priced at $0.99.
