Weather Line 2 released with custom themes, Super Forecast, and more

What you need to know

  • Weather Line 2 is now available in the App Store.
  • It's free with a subscription model.
  • The update includes puts the best radar, rain, and forecasting data in one place.

Update - It looks like the App Store is taking some time propogating the update. If you're still seing Weather Line v1.9.10, hang tight.

Weather Line is already one of the most loved weather apps on the App Store and now it has a sequel. This isn't just a spit and polish release though, with lots to make the update worthwhile.

At the top of that list is what Weather Line calls Super Forecast. It takes the best sources of radar, forecasting, and rain data and then puts them all into one app. Gone are the days of switching between weather apps just to work out whether it's going to rain in one and check the temperature in another.

Frequent travellers will love the new Travel Assist feature, too. The app will make a better job than ever of working out whether you're at home or on the move. No more having your weather app think your "Home' is two different places!

Other features include the obligatory support for iOS 13's Dark Mode as well as 17 unique themes. There are four different dark themes, because why not? Oh, and for the ultimate in Home screen management Weather Line 2 has 50 – count 'em, 50 – different app icons for you to choose from.

Rounding things out are the 10-day and 48-hour forecasts as well as monthly averages so you can make more informed decisions when travelling. And because Weather Line 2 uses Dark Sky data you'll be told before it rains while you're there.

You can download the new Weather Line 2 update from the App Store (opens in new tab). It's a free download, but to unlock all of the features and remove the ads you'll need to either subscribe or pay for the $44.99 lifetime in-app purchase.

  • I'm looking at the App in the App Store, and it's not free! It costs $2.99.
  • Same here - using the link from the article
  • Looks like it's taking it's time updating. If you're still seeing v1.9.10, try again in a while
  • It's fixed! I'm downloading it now!
  • Weather Line 2 has blown me away, and that's not because it reported strong winds tonight. I've been a long time user of the first version, and the amount of polish and new features that has gone into this app is fantastic, well done to the developers. As for the subscription-pricing, for this kind of app it makes sense as the developers are constantly paying for the weather data. I know a lot of people have complained, and I'm not a big fan of subscriptions myself, but here the pricing model is justified.
