Weather Channel

The Weather Channel is now fully iPhone optimized and works on the iPod touch as well and is quite an improvement over the original mobile version of weather.com. You need to use a Safari browser if you want to take it for a test drive on your PC or Mac. After entering your city or Zip Code you are shown the current conditions in a nicely designed iPhone format. On the bottom of the page you see the forecast for today broken down by hour. Also on the bottom you have buttons for loading Weather Maps in Road, Hybrid or Arial modes. Finally there is a button for loading the 10 day forecast table.

On top you have a drop down with all your cities. From here you can also edit your locations and change your temperature display settings for either English or Metric formats. On the top there are also navigation buttons that allow you to move to the next and previous days data. Overall quite impressive and is sure to become a favorite amongst iPhone and iPod touch fans.

You must be using an iPhone to see the iPhone version of this app. Try it here

    Website no longer works. Redirects to plain mobile weather.com

    hey dan, thanks for the heads up. looks like they’ve changed the requirements, now it only works from the Safari browser. We’ve marked this app under the iphone-only category accordingly.

    Scott says:

    cannot access the app from a bookmark or a home page icon as the website redirects to the plain mobile app built for blackberry’s, etc. Only way to get this app to work is to go every time to the iphone link on the traditional weather.com website. Bookmarking http://www.weather.com/iphone does not work as user is redirected.

    This is The Weather Channel’s iphone website, not application. You must download TWC iPhone application off of iTunes like the rest of the applications.

    weather.com/iphone will work on your safari browser on your computer or on your iPhone.

    How do I delete a location on The Weather Channel
    iPhone app? Is it possible to do?
    Thanks

    I had the worst time with this one, so here’s how I’ve been doing it.

    Set your location to one other than the one you wish to remove. Go back to the locations and double-tap on the little blue > on the one you want to delete. A menu show come up allowing you to delete the location.

    I’m able to do it a little differently than Billy. I’m able to bring up the menu by tapping once just barely to the left of the blue circle. It looks like maybe the programmer intended for us to tap the blue circle but got his location a little off.

    THANK YOU for figuring this out… bugging me forever. I just couldn’t get it. Double tap. Of course… a few items in the “Tips and Tricks” section might be to tell you how to actually go about using the app.

    Thank God you guys figured out how to delete a “favorite” location. I ended up with 2 of the unwanted locations (South China, ME) just from trying to delete it.

    Tom James says:

    Holdfinger on arrow next to location for a couple of seconds then release. It will then give you a chance to delete.

    How do I change from standard to metric system? Can’t find it under location like the “Tips and Tricks” says, any idea on how to do this?

    Thanks

    Anyone getting erroneous temperature readings for their location? On a daily basis, it will show a temperature reading approximately 7 to 8 degrees below what other sources (TV, NWS, etc) say it is. Other than that, I love the app.

    I am able to delete favorites from the list, but how do I delete the ‘Recents’ ?
