- Behind the scenes magic
Fast & efficient, no distractions
Extremely quick and focuses precisely on giving me exactly what I need as regards the weather, no more and no less. Very minimalistic without giving me what I consider a lot unneeded features and info. I have been using this app for many months and its simple 3 day forecast seems pretty darn accurate, at least for my area. I can see a fast hourly forecast of the local weather up to 24 hours into the future, hour by hour, with a one touch finger swipe that takes two seconds or get in and get out real quick after seeing a minimalistic view of the current weather and 3 day forecast. I can usually start up this app and get what I need in less than 10 seconds without even breaking a sweat. If you like knowing all the things like barometric pressures and wind speeds down to the exact mile per hour, this app is not for you. I have to apologize but I don't really care that this app is sort of pretty but maybe you do. If you like to get in, get the current forecast and current conditions and then get out as fast as current technology allows, this is your baby.
Simple to use & Gorgeous Interface
This app is simply gorgeous! The interface that is so simple to use -- uncluttered and and to the point. While it doesn't give you wind speed and other data it does let you see the temperature and weather conditions literally on a minute by minute basis simply by swiping your finger up and down the screen. I use it every morning before planning my day.
My only suggestion would be for the developer to somehow have the fonts change to a lighter or darker color depending on the background. While not a big deal, sometimes the white font can be difficult to see with a very light background. Otherwise, this is a great app!
I have probably downloaded every weather app in the App Store and must say this is Quite Unique, It's very clever that you can see the current weather and have a general idea of what tomorrow will bring. Visually entertaining to just look at. Don't expect a whole lot of weather info as it's not there so if you want a full blown weather app go get the Weather Underground app or The Weather Channel App.
