Free weather platforms

Openweathermap API

This is one of my preferred platforms because it is easy to use and provides several type of data in JSON and XML.

Yahoo! Weather

Weather Underground API

For this set of API, I did not write any post, anyway, i developed an open source library in Android that can be used to build weather app easily.

Forecast.io

This set of API is very interesting and Android Weatherlib supports it as weather provider.

When developing an Android app important to follow material guidelines so that the app is compliant with Android UI requirements. The post describes how to create a simple Android UI to that shows current weather information. It can be useful when you want to start with Android weather app and you need some inspiration to design UI or you want to know better how to use Android library.
