Review MSN Weather

Brandon Girod
7.5Good
Good UI and design, great performance, provides tons of useful weather information
Has no widget support, offers no way to quickly glance at weather info
MSN Weather for Android is MSN’s delve into the weather world. They’ve been putting out a lot of “lifestyle” type apps, and this is another one of those. It draws from the same design language, and hopes to replace one of the weather apps you’ve already got on your phone.
At this point, having a weather app almost feels redundant. Google Now already offers a super great way to give you weather updates, that's easy to access, and reliable. That said, it doesn’t look especially stylish, which is likely where 3rd party weather apps can snatch up some share of the market. The problem is that this app has absolutely no widgets to use. Compare that to some of the other beautiful weather options out there, and MSN is already at a disadvantage.
The app does look great when you open it, and it presents a lot of functional weather information in an intuitive layout. It’s also incredibly responsive, which is a huge bonus when compared to other weather apps on the market. It offers a lot of weather maps that are easy to understand and use, and it has a favorites and news section. Nothing super unique, though.
MSN Weather works really well, and that kind of says a lot. I’m used to using apps like the Weather Channel, which is very laggy and unresponsive. That said, this one has no widgets, so you’ll never have any way to quickly glance at weather information; which is already a native functionality in Android.
