An accessible weather app

iOS and iPadOS

Hi all,
I am looking for an accessible weather app that can check the weather in the past. I’ve tried the weather history explorer but this app does not work well with VO. Have you any ideas of a fre or paid app in which I can find information about the weather for a selected day in the past? Thanks anyway for your suggestions.

From what I've heard, Weather Gods is fully accessible with VoiceOver. I haven't tried it because I don't have a credit card, but it sounds pretty good from what I've been hearing on the different Forum Topics.

Hi! Weather Gods is certainly a good app, but, like every other weather app I've used, it only tells you the weather now and in the future. I have never yet come across any weather app which tells you what the weather was like in the past, even in the most recent past, but if anyone does know anything about such an app, hopefully they'll post here about it.

Thank you for your answers. I'm afraid that some names mentioned under the link can't be found in the App Store. Also, are they accessible with VO? Still please give some ideas of accessible apps where I can check what was the weaaather like in the past.

I love weather gods. But I didn't see any history feature in it. It is also giving notifications also for India. That is why i like this one better.

It definitely has a way to look up weather forecasts from previous days. Even checked a date in 1975 with no problems with it.

Many thanks for your help. I have one more question. I've watched presentations of carrot weather and it seems the application has its own speech system. I prefer reading a screen with VO gestures rather than listening to added speech that may clash with VO. Is there an option that turns installed speech off and instead VO is used? Once again thank you. Greetings.
