Australia's original and best weather app sources its data from the only place that matters: the Bureau of Meteorology.
Built by locals right here in Australia, we've spent a lot of time refining and building the weather app we all want to use. So whether you need to check what it's going to be like this week on your phone or tablet we have you covered!
For those that love details though, we have some for you:
- Detailed weather information for every suburb in Australia
- Hourly temperature predictions 7 days into the future
- All the Bureau of Meteorology rain radars
- Dark theme (by default this comes on at night, or you can permanently toggle it in the app settings)
- National synoptic chart
- Tide times (with offline support)
- Detailed observation information, which you can edit to show only the bits that interest you
- All the Bureau of Meteorology warnings for around the country
- Notification support if you want to be notified of warnings as they occur
- 72 hours of historical information for each location
- Supports phones and tablets of varying sizes
We've worked long and hard over the years to bring you the weather and version 5 continues that legacy. As always we're open to your feedback and have even more amazing updates in the pipeline.
In the meantime, enjoy the weather!
- Is it dark out: First and last light added to today info
- What's up with the rain: Fixed a bug that could cause the radar to show incorrect data
- You're pinching it wrong: Fixed data being cut off on the fullscreen today page, improved zooming
- Live in the now: current temperature added into the 3 hourly forecast card
- MOAR: fixed much more than we can list here
- And for all those asking 'WHY IS THERE A KOALA NEXT TO THE 26TH?!' It's Australia day people. Wake up and smell the lamb.
Shifty Jelly part of our Weather and have average installs from 50000 to 100000. Last Update Jan. 21, 2016. Google play rating is 89.7209. Current verison is 5.0.2. Actual size 12.0 MB.
Great but... This app is really well put together. Still having trouble with "Follow me" feature not finding location from network (works fine with GPS on). If I try to manually add a location the "Place nearby" gets location from network fine. I have contacted developer.
Where's my tides? Took me a while to work out that needed manual update to get 2015 tides. A warning would have been nicer than a blank page guys!
Zerosixsix Better before update, widget now rounds to neatest degree and not the reading from the bom site. The app needs to be opened to see temp with decimal point, very annoying. Also no forecast for today only from tomorrow onwards and less info in the moon phases. It's easier to go to bom website and get the you're to date accurate weather info. Uninstalling, very disappointing from shifty jelly
Great for Aussie weather... Not so good for overseas holidays, though! I wondered why it kept saying that I was on Christmas Island when I was in Thailand. :P Well worth the few bucks for it. Best Aussie weather app there is. Still looks great, too. Hopefully, you won't change the UI for a good while. So sick of apps constantly changing.
Hands down the greatest weather app ever! Tells you everything you need to know, with the most detail. Been using it for years, ever since I had an iPhone 3gs. Fantastic!
Best weather app hands down Brilliant weather app, multi device capability, and a gorgeous interface. Makes the BOM website mostly redundant. Plus the dev's are Australian, and have a sense of humour.
Works a treat Thanks, I would give this 5, if it had the option for degrees in the notification bar, like my girlfriends Weather XL. Love the widgets and tides ?
Widget location not updating automatically Widget doesn't update location automatically unless you actually open the app. Have no problems with other weather app widgets and this problem happens on two devices. No response from the devs after several emails. Quite poor for a paid app. Shame too as it was a good app otherwise
Everything you need, beautifully presented I have been using ShiftJelly's weather apps on iPad,iPhone and now Android for several years and they keep making it mor acccuratw, relevant ant easy to use every time. Well done, folks and thanks!
Perfect App The perfect weather app, great design, simplicity and functionality. App developers take note, this is how an app is done! Brilliant!
Always one of my "first installs" Love this app, and have been using it for many years on many different phones and platforms. There really is nothing better.
Fantastic app Thanks for the fab update. App is great on my nexus 7. Please beautify widgets with next update, then this app will be perfect. Latest update has removed decimal point from current temperature on widget. This is annoying as now have to open to see temperature changing. Please bring back or allow customisation. Thanks
The best Australian weather app I've used - have tried them all. Looks great, very accurate. A job well done!
Gavin Greenoak There was an ad for this gem on another weather app (!) behaving badly and sort of telling me (for years) to get used to inaccuracies. This one does it all much better, and beautiful too. Never has it been so apt that "It's an ill wind that blows no one any good." Thank you very much.
Notifications not working Push warnings for severe weather are not working in NSW and VIC, which is really dangerous if you think you can rely on the app. A few bugs around radar controls and the way views get stacked on top of each other. In short nowhere near as good as the iPhone app version
The best and most accurate weather app on the planet.Do yourself a favour and try it.You will not be sorry. Very comprehensive coverage of all things weather and way beyond. Love this app.
Fix it Can you fix the radar so it stays in normal mode instead of changing to the slow satellite mode. Its just too slow and confusing. And on a tablet it refuses to go to 64km mode. Always jumps to 128km. I want a normal view, not satellite view. Please fix.I'll give more stars when fixed. This has been my main complaint since the new look and its still not fixed.
Just the best! Looks great on both my Google nexus 7, Google nexus 4 combination. A joy to experience!
Best app for weather So well designed and a pleasure to use. Love the Google maps underlay on the radar too. Seriously the best.
Nice App But They only "have one eye on the server" and not on the app that just been updated. Bug found. Seven day forecast now list six. The Today forecast not showing. You have to tap on Tomorrow or the other days first and then tap Previous to see the Today forecast. Also, although it not a bug. Do we really need to have eight Synoptic Chart loaded up? Maybe I'm wrong, but I think three would be enough.
Pocket Weather Great App and it's created right here in Adelaide by local IT guys!!
Not working. No more 5 star reviews. Follow me does nothing. Have to manually set locations. Pretty pointless now.
All the essentials with a clean UI It has just about everything important I'm looking for in a weather app - accurate forecasts, radar and a detailed outlook. Topped off with a clean UI and good customisability so I can choose only to see what's important to me! If I may make a couple of requests then a dashclock widget extension and UV forecasts for future days would be like cherry on the cake! :)
Pocket Brilliant. ...THE ONLY WEATHER APP TO USE.How about adding temp and conditions in the notification screen ? Good work guys :-) HOWEVER....SINCE LAST FIFMWARE UPGRADE THIS WILL NOT WORK ON TABLETS !
It said it was gonna be 28 tomorrow. Now tomorrows here its 35 lol. It says its gonna rain and these times and half the time it doesnt unless its a full storm. Update: terrible!!
Pocket Weather This app is the best weather app I have used, and I have used a lot.
The new version widget is rounding up and down the temp. Please bring back the temp to the one decimal. Thanks
My daily. I love the new warnings! I got a warning! I ran! Maybe next time I'll actually set it for the state I'm in, because all that needless running wore me out. Could I maybe walk next time, or even get I'm my car and drive?... I can't run as fast as my car goes, even during peak hour traffic. Next time there's a tsunami in the Adelaide hills, I'll be ready.
Perty and worky Love especially the large widget on my home screen.
There is no better weather app Certainly the best weather app I've used for Australia and just keeps getting better all the time.
Just Great Excellent application. Extremely well designed and it has every service I need. Not only UV forecast but actual UV too. A must for Aussie parents. Well done. Thanks..
Great app, needs an update. I've been using Pocket Weather for years, and love how accessible the information is. I would like to see integration with Android Wear, and a new design based on Material Design. It is still hands down the best weather app for Australians due to integration with BOM data.
Horsesome Simply the best weather app for Australia. Finally Phablet support!
Best weather app for Australian Love the wind direction and speed. Very useful if you're planning to cycle.
My default weather app The best available for Australians.
Official Australian Weather Great app. The only one that has official info from BOM, not from overseas. The graph even tells you when and by what percentage it's going to rain. Auto radar images. Temperature and 'feels like' temperature. 'Follow me' also means you don't have to keep updating your cities. Well worth the small purchase price for the accuracy.
Best weather app The only thing that could possibly make this app better is Android Wear support, somehow.
Awesome app All I see it missing is a widget option for a white card-like background to suit material design aesthetic of lollipop just to keep up with the times. Other than that, functionality is great and its my go to weather app.
Made with love and humour Thanks for a great weather app, but mostly, I'm writing my first ever review because the 'What's New' notes are adorable and awesome. Who knew a weather app could also lift your mood! :)
No push notifications for Severe Storms I have sent email to you about this issue but no reply. Why everytime any severe storm warnings are issued for Qld that I don't get any push notifications yet I have all warnings marked and I do get all marine wind warning push notifications fine, but why no Severe Storm Warnings for Qld?
Accurate but Needs a material design update in app as well as the widget... Also the follow me option is either inaccurate or slow to update on nexus 6 Cm12
My favorite app I live near the coast and swim and/or walk at the beach most days and this is one of my most used apps. Apart from forecasts I can also check current wind and UV conditions etc and also local tides. Only suggestions for improvements would be if it could also include (1) ocean swell heights & direction and (2) the ocean temperature for my chosen location. Many thanks! Paul
Problem with notifications Notifications for severe storms don't work. I've often wondered if a notification should have come across, go into the app and sure enough there is a severe or dangerous storm warning sitting there. This is a good app but early warning is one of the main features I'm after and without it the app just doesn't cut it for me.
Much improved! Being able to reduce the items in the summary card makes it easier to view. Detailed outook timeline view is excellent. Wishlist: humidity and wind on the widget. Radar: prefer a map view than satellite view which I find harder to see.
Just the best! Looks great on both my Google nexus 4, Google nexus 7 combination. A joy to experience!
Great but dated It's starting to show its age. Great app but the UI needs an update; particularly the widgets.
This app is the Bom! Pun intended. Does not let me down!
What was the best weather app now isn't. Simple as that. Wastes 2/3 of the iPad screen, have to search for things that were all on one screen. Constantly shows four days ahead on opening to view. Needs to show current day, and then we can look ahead. Using Yahoo weather now. AccuWeather is also a great alternative.
Best Love the material design, the speed and ui is very good. The features and user ability is very nice clean and minimalistic. One feature I ask for would be to have to add wunderground weather station as well the bom info to accsess my weather! Thanks Jelly Shift
Fantastic The most accurate weather app I've had so far. Also, the UI design (+10000 to the Widget) is super awesome. Everything is at your fingertips, easy to find and understand. Great work fellas.
Old design nicer but still the best The old design was nicer, more informative and better layed out, with less wasted screen 'real estate'. Still the best weather app out there though.
Was good. Now, not so much. The detail that this app used to provide has been lost. Particularly in the temperature and wind charts. The main chart with three-hourly predicted temps is next to useless and when you tap it to see more detail from the old style chart, it no longer provides it. Always sad to see function discarded in favour of "prettiness". Now also very slow to update.
Best! This app is great, it tells me all the simple stuff but if i want the nitty gritty it is only one tap away. It also seems pretty accurate too. The widget is perfect and there is nothing i would change on it. 5 out of 5 from me. Good work people.
So close to perfect I live the design and usage of the app. It's absolutely top notch. The only thing that would make this a perfect weather app for me would be if it had android wear support, as I find it useful to be able to glance at my wrist for the weather. That's the only reason I have another weather app still installed
Used to be perfect This was my go to weather app but the material theme just totally misses the mark: the colours are too saturated & garish, and the whole app just feels too cartoony now. And I don't like the new way the hourly temperature graph works: I much preferred the old way.
Very bad update New design looks like it was designed for kids. Widget location still not updating automatically. Weatherzone is far superior, better interface and the location always updates.
It's only a couple of dollars people. Do you want to have prophetic superpowers? Now is your chance. Get this app already - its excellent interface will get you the important pieces of information you need quickly. Accurate information too, straight from the Bureau - unlike certain other apps sourcing their info on overseas robots or throwing up whacked apparent temperature readings (what gives?). Use the radar of rationality (especially if your city has a Doppler radar) so you can pre-plan outdoor dashes or commutes and not look like a soaked numpty when it "suddenly" pours "unexpectedly"! Run before the others run - you will be magnificent! Hands down the best app I've ever paid for.
Best Australian weather app Great interface (although I still harbour a fondness for the pre-Material row of daily mini-cards on a tablet), all the essentials and weather radar!
power usage too high when app isn't used no way to set weather update intervals, pocket weather accounts for 10%+ of my battery usage and no way to change back to the old timeline graph which was much better
Great but... This app is really well put together but I am still having trouble with "Follow me" feature not getting location. I had the same problem with previous version. Similar apps (AUS weather, willyweather and weather zone) have no issue getting location.
Radar no option...plus this app is so power hungry Can you add radar size when you load app it only show 64km I want 128 to see Bundaberg
The best weather app for Aussies, bar none. Small price to pay for a quality app that I use multiple times daily.
AMOLED You mention AMOLED fans/users when talking about the dark theme. Could we have another theme that actually uses black in addition to the current dark theme? Thanks EDIT: could you also add an option to enable the cute animations in more places (and add more of them)
The best app ever this the best weather app out there, fast accurate, never an issue, now just some lounge music added while we study the weather would be perfect guys :P
Thanks guys n gals... excellent weather app, would be lost without it... I could look at the sky I guess lol
Great design Material design is perfect, takes a while to understand how to access all the information, but its great once you do
Whilst I like the GUI changes, I don't think the colours suit the overall aesthetics. I find the colours seems to blend amongst each other and ultimately making it hard to read--well at least more so than the previous version.
Ok it's the best Ozzie weather app! Used app for years, was Not updating location??! Working again...
It looks awesome! The app needs a clock and weather widget together for the home screen
Accurate and good looking UI Has to be the best in the market with close to accurate predictions and user-friendly UI! GOOD JOB GUYS!
All in one Best weather app has everything you need for Australian weather thanks guy's
Don't like "now" being in timeline card. It's an observation whereas everything else there is a forecast, it sometimes doesn't match well. It's also redundant because the current observed temperature is already shown above.
Doesn't work Don't work fix it or giv me 1.99 back not the first time and want be the last
Prefer previous version Definitely prefer the pre-material design version. The app now looks too generic - although functionality is still there and is still terrific (even if it's not as pretty). Bonus star for the "wake up and smell the lamb" comment in update notes!
5.0 also beautiful A long time between updates, but worth waiting for.
Loving the material design I'm looking forward to Android wear support
Id give it 5 stars but no lighting radar Great app but no lightning trackers
Best weather app for Australians Best weather app for Australians. New update was great. Much more informative.
Better before Great app have used it for years on iphones and now Samsung. However not a fan of the new look. Reading below it appears most people aren't a fan, so Pocket Weather please change it back?! :)
Best weather ever! I'm a recent iPhone convert, always used this app on iPhone and happy to pay for it again on Android but would love the widget to include a clock and be able to show up on the lock screen just like the default Samsung weather/clock widget...this is the only weather I trust!
I had this weather app for a few months now. Works great I've had no problems with it.
Love the new look in version 5. What a great app. Keep up the great work.
Great app, well worth it. Great app, well worth it.
Best Australian Weather App The app is very well set out. Everything is easily accessible . Very descriptive data.
Best Buy weather app Interface looks amazing best app for android don't hesitate to buy
Roll the update back... I have loved this app for many years on both my iPhone and then many more on my Samsung where it was awesome. The original app on iPhone many years ago is now recreated back to being very agricultural in its GUI . Please return the stylish app that it was before this last couple of updates.
Love this app, the prior version worked just fine, now I have the dreaded 505 install error.
Turn back the clock! A great app functionality, but the last update has ruined the look and feel. The childish/cartoonish graphics just don't match the look of my phone anymore, and the functionality of the interface has become questionable. Maybe time to look at other options. Why do developers screw around with perfectly good interfaces until they stuff them up (Windows XP, Linux pre Unity, etc...)?
Fix reported bugs. Waiting 2 years and still not fixed. Can you fix the radar so it stays in normal mode instead of changing to the slow satellite mode. Its just too slow and confusing. And on a tablet it refuses to go to 64km mode. Always jumps to 128km. I want a normal view, not satellite view. Please fix.I'll give more stars when fixed. This has been my main complaint since the new look and its still not fixed. * did this new version fix any of the bugs ive reported? nope, all the bugs are still there and now the app looks even worse. How can i give it a negative stars? Minus 5 for not fixing reported bugs and making the app worse.
Was once very good but has been ruined by an update that wastes screen space and removes information.
Better than Weather Timeline in its design, performance and use of the BOM API.
Great weather app - don't like the last update - i think the icons are to cartoonish now.
Good overall All good but app follow me not working any more. Please fix
The Best I use this app every day! Fantastic!
Well it was a great app since you updated it until about 3 days ago when it as usual stopped giving me push notifications of any warnings at all for Qld, and its not just me, as I have two other local freinds I know who also have ceased to receive any push notifications from your totally unreliable useless app. Why can't we all get what we paid for Shifty Jelly?
Very happy I was pretty happy with this and very happy that the UI update didn't take away the things I really like but now I'm ecstatic as I have just realised that I can now choose which type of Map I want for the radar. Back to ordinary map view for me woohoo! My only tiny gripe is that for those of us who have older eyes, reading the light blue percentage rain figures can be a bit challenging. Thanks heaps for such a great app
And notifications are broken once more, without any clue about what's going on Notifications (severe weather warnings!!!) stopped working a few weeks back and latest bug fix version still didn't help, neither did repeated feedback emails :(. Down to 2 stars... Radar step by step animation is still stepping based on the 2nd last button pressed (try pressing back and forth alternatively )
Cannot locate Follow me feature is a flop rarely updates to current location. But if i search for a location nearby, no worries straight away knows were I am. If your getting this for the follow me feature don't it dont work.
The best for Oz weather Still no competition for this app and it's great to see long term support - so often apps just die and stop getting updated. Great work guys. I would to be able to reduce the update interval, but there don't seem to be any settings for it. The less it updates, the less it eats my battery...
Great app Great weather app. The material UI looks great in newer phones with newer versions of Android, good work. Loving the customisable card layouts too. ? ?
Best Love the design, the speed and ui is very good. The features and user ability is very nice clean and minimalistic. One feature I ask for would be to have to add wunderground weather station as well the bom info to accsess my weather! Thanks Jelly Shift
Any planned update for Android N preview? Understand that Android N is still a preview but at least let us know if we will have to wait until Android N is officially released. Any communication is better than nothing. Broken since the last Android N Preview 4. I'm aware it's still a preview but most other apps have been updated to be compatible.
From best to worst It was a fun and enjoyable app to use. Now it's plain and boring. Don't change a winning formula just for the sake of it. You've lost me and probably thousands of other users.
Older version better New version has too much negative wasted space and scrolling required, the old graphs were much more informative. Change should be better not worse. Would give 5 stars if it was changed back
Change the design back! Can you PLEASE go back to the old design. It was so much easier to read than the new material design.
Stopped updating when I installed DP4 The best weather app for Aussies, bar none. Small price to pay for a quality app that I use multiple times daily.
Just the best! Looks great on both my Google nexus 6P, Google nexus 7 combination. A joy to experience and for planning my day!
Very comprehensive My one gripe is that, unlike the stock weather app's widget, Pocket Weather's widget lacks the present date and time. Were this to be added, I would happily give 5 stars.
What happened? No longer works. Was the best app, now it does not retrieve data. What happened?
Great weather app Hopefully Nougat support is coming soon. Seeing non working widget makes me sad ?
Great app Accurate and up to date and can see LIVE radar all in one app! Great work use this more than once daily
It looks awesome! The app needs a clock and weather widget together for the home screen
Was good now asking for GPS all the time and won't load if i don't turn it on
Good but need some improvement The app ui is smooth, simple. Take a bit of time to study what the data inside actually mean. Like I can find the possibility of rain for certain time. Widget has a small bug which I cant make it fully transparent, change in the setting but not working.
Love the new GUI !!! Forget all other weather apps (they source their information from indirect sources). This app sources all its (extremely detailed) information straight from our Bureau Of Meteorology. Wind directions and speeds... temperature graph to show what the temp will be like at a certain time... radar showing where and when the rain is/will-be... this app is our aussie weather!!!! Worth the couple of dollars... worth every cent!!! See all warnings and know exactly when that change is gonna hit.
The app in general is good but the warning notifications continue to not work. I have emailed shifty jelly multiple times with no response, so they don't seem to be bothered by this bug. Very disappointing that this bug has still not been fixed or addressed
Erroneous forecasts Your forecasts for the Mornington peninsula in melbourne have become ridiculously erroneous. Up to 10° out! I paid good money for this, so fix it please!
Quite a good app. Very speedy. Like that it uses BOM data. However the widgets could use some work. Only displaying today's info on a 4x1 widget is frustrating when other apps manage to provide some details on today's weather plus 4 days forecast. Would also appreciate a 5x1 widget which is supported on some devices like the Nexus 6P and tablets.
Radar Not Working. This is still the best weather app I've seen on the play store but today is now the 2nd time under a severe thunderstorms warning that the rader has stopped working. Please fix. Thank you... Responded with in an hour or 2 with issues fixed -:)
I really like this app but why don't the notifications work? I contacted the developers ages ago & got no reply. Expect better for a paid app & I'm surprised when there's so many other options out there. Also disappointing when I want to support local developers.
Fairly good Used to be brilliant but they changed the UI and it doesn't look as good as it used to and has lost some of its functionality. Has difficulty "following" me so I have to manually set my location. Would like to stop the silly spinning animation, too.
My go-to weather app for Australia I'd be lying if I said I tried any less than a dozen weather apps. I honestly lost count, though. This one doesn't do absolutely everything, but what it does do, it does well. Really well.
Widget with time I love the app but could we get a widget with the time on it? I hate how everything is white text on android. I can't see my notification bar against my white background!
Best Love the design, the speed and ui is very good. The features and user ability is very nice clean and minimalistic. One feature I ask for would be to have to add wunderground weather station as well the bom info to accsess my weather! Thanks Shift Jelly
Awesome app overall Would be a 5, just needs a search button. It's a bit tedious having to add a location only to delete it.
Bring back BOM map New ui is fine, albeit a little cartoonish. Still uses the hard-to-read google satellite rather than BOM map. I use OZ Radar to get the rainfall now. Just sayin.
Good App My go to weather app. Only downfall, no localised weather alerts, I don't need push notifications for all of Queensland, 99% of alerts do not relate to my area at all.
Great app They say Melbourne weather is unpredictable, well this app proves that saying wrong.
