Google Launches a Weather Web App, Sliders Included

Google announced the launch of a weather web app Monday for Android and iPhone. It is accessible by simply searching “weather” on google.com in your device’s browser. On the search results page itself, basic information about the weather is displayed, either using your current location (via GPS) or for a manually chosen location.

Arguably the most interesting feature of the weather web app is the built-in horizontal slider. It adjusts the time of the day you want to see the weather predicted. Although it is a simple slider, it is a unique and attractive feature for a mobile site to have.

There are some reports of the weather web app not showing up on devices like it should. If anyone figures out a trick or fix, shout it out in the comments!
