The last long weekend of summer is here. Of course there’s plenty to do on Labor Day weekend 2011 in and around Charlottesville but if you’re hitting the road there are a few worthy weather iPhone apps to check. With all of the crazy weather including the earthquake, aftershocks and hurricanes of 2011, a weather app is a pretty smart idea especially if your family is traveling.
WeatherBug gets 3 ½ out of 5 stars from user reviewers both at MacWorld and iTunes.
What’s to like about WeatherBug app:
-WeatherBug is free.
-WeatherBug tracks weather in 3 chosen locations.
-WeatherBug webcam photos are good to really good, but not available in all locations.
-WeatherBug information comes from local weather stations.
-WeatherBug shows the weather for the next three days and you can hit the arrows for an extended forecast.
What’s not to like about WeatherBug app:
-WeatherBug is no good for international radar.
-Radar function is buggy altogether but pretty cool when it works.
What I like best is the ability to track three locations and of course that it’s free.
Don’t forget you can keep up with local information when during your Labor Day travel with these Charlottesville related iPhone apps. Get free podcast from The Daily Progress or free podcast from CPN, Charlottesville Podcast Network by Sean Tubbs.
