We are always walking around with these amazing devices in our pockets and in our hands all day long. But on occasion you will find yourself without an umbrella on a rainy day or wearing too many layers on a hot day and too few on a particularly cold day. There is no reason why this should happen if you have the right weather app installed on your phone it shouldn't happen any more.
There are many apps that will send you an update of the day's weather conditions and set up severe weather alters.
Accuweather's Android app has the ability to get severe weather condition alerts right on your phone. Which is really helpful for people living in areas that are prone to hurricanes and tornadoes, but most of us don't live in these areas.
So what can we do if all we want is to know when there is going to be a heat wave tomorrow or if a cold front is going to be coming in? The most obvious option is to monitor the weather channel on a daily basis to keep up with the weather, but we don't always have the time for this.
There are a few options for what you can do to get weather updates on your android when you need them. The first is to get a weather report at a glance from Accuweather's app. In the drop down notification area on the android you will get a bar that has the current temperature and sky condition (i.e. sunny or cloudy) and to get more detail you have to go into the app.
Google now has been updating their public service announcement services to include more severe weather conditions. When you open the Google Now screen on your Android if you are in or around an area that is targeted for severe weather the notification will appear with your regular Google Now cards.
For more specific weather alerts you can install apps like the Rain Alarm app that will alert you of rain before it happens. Apps like these will run in the background pulling in weather information looking for rain in your forecast which can lead to battery draining.
Using apps like these you will always be prepared for any weather condition be it rain or shine.
