Weather Underground is the only and the first online weather service, but up to the date there is no iPhone specific app. This is going to change the face completely when the Weather Underground app arrives on the App Store.
The developers of the app have leaked a pre-release version of the software, which is believed to be approved by Apple near in future. The updates on this topic will be conveyed to you as we receive them via Apple and also we will provide you the links to the app as it arrive on the App Store.
The free app takes benefit of official weather stations as well as the huge network of over 23,000 personal weather stations around the world. This indicates that users have the ability to get current weather readings for much closer locations. Let’s take an example; there are four National Weather Service stations in the Denver area, none of which are closer than about 8 miles from my office. The Weather Underground app provides a list of stations that are closer; two of them are about a mile away.
The website of Weather underground provides weather information on an interactive weather map called WunderMap®. The iPhone app comprises of WunderMap and a number of overlays that can be toggled on or off, including animated radar, satellite, webcams, and severe weather updates.

Weather Underground is far different from other apps download-able on iPhone, as it is remarkably stable and does not get crashed during testing. Also it is relatively fast compared to the other weather apps. According to Weather Underground, the feature set of the app also consist of:
