Review EZ Weather HD Beautiful Widget

Brandon Girod
7.5Good
Lots of customizable options, good looking widgets, options are easy to navigate
Doesn't have weather radar, doesn't provide additional features over stock weather app
It's almost funny how much things have changed in the world of Android since the beginning. Weather apps used to be a huge deal. Thinking back now, I really couldn't tell you why, but they were. Nowadays, I'm completely content with the fact that weather is so deeply ingrained inside Android that I couldn't even tell you the last time I went out to actually look for a weather app. Well, they do still exist and Amber Weather for Android is one of them.
So what does something like this do that Android doesn't do on its own? Well, for starters, things are a bit more dedicated. Using something like Google Now to get weather information, you'll get your typical 5-day weather forecast and a somewhat detailed hourly look at the day. With a dedicated app you have the ability for more features. Unfortunately, this app doesn't really do that. Want a weather map? Sorry. How about a radar? Sorry again.
So what does this app have to offer? Well, it's a platform where you can download more apps to plug into it so that you can have cool things like widgets, icons, lockscreen notifications and more. The problem here is that none of those things are actually baked into the app itself. It acts more like a hub where you can control all of these other apps. This leads us down a dead end because there are a lot of really great looking weather clocks out there that can be completely tailored. This just seems like an idea straight out of 2009.
Amber Weather really just sort of feels outdated. It's almost like it just woke up from a coma and found that the world had passed it by. I don't see any real reason why you'd want to switch from having Google give you constant weather updates, and this doesn't really do anything out of the box that isn't already on your phone.
