I'm a sucker for a good weather app and Weather Live gives a simple one-screen forecast. It gives all the expected information in the forecast, complete with wind speed/direction, barometric pressure, visibility, precipitation, and humidity. It presents everything with an attractive HD animated display sure to please.
