Appealing in its simplicity, the Kid Weather app offers youngsters opportunities to learn weather basics. Players choose a location and an avatar to see the current weather. Tapping different symbols, from a sun to a snowflake, shows how changes in the weather affect what we wear. There's even a simple section for users to plot and track basic weather conditions over time.

P>Designed by a 6-year-old boy (and his meteorologist dad), players of all ages will enjoy the fun filled trivia sections: Animal Weather(if you count the number of chirps a cricket makes in 15 seconds and add 37 you will have the air temperature in Fahrenheit), Clouds, Expressions ("Throw caution to the wind"), Extreme Weather, Instruments (an anemometer measures wind speed), Lightning, Rainbows, Sky Color, Seasons, Top US Cities for snow, US State Records, Weather Folklore (if the first week in August is unusually warm, the coming winter will be snowy and long), and Weather Map symbols. Developers have plans to add more avatars and features.
