A unique weather app with a simple and beautiful interface without all the distractions.
What is minimalism?
In a nutshell, minimalism is freedom. Basically it's reducing your life to what is only necessary. That is why we built RANE°, to reduce the clutter found in most weather apps.
RANE° is a beautifully minimal Weather App like no other. Each sphere represents your temperature and is beautifully animated. Icons and text change depending on the forecast. Swipe down to refresh, swipe up to access settings. Tap each icon to see additional information about weather conditions including the forecast. RANE° is designed with minimalism in mind yet offering you the features that are important to you.
Powered by Dark Sky, RANE° uses location information to display your current city and the following weather conditions:
- Cloud conditions
- Wind Speed
- Dew Point
- High and low current temperature
- Chance of Rain
- Feels Like conditions for temperature
- Current and 5 day weather forecast
- Hourly Forecast

Ratings and Reviews
This is just the app I was looking for! Many other weather apps are cluttered with ads and unnecessary nonsense. This app cuts straight to the point- what the current temperature is, what it feels like, what the rest of the day's weather is predicted to be like, and a chance of precipitation. This is all I needed, and RANE° delivered.
I also quite like the dots as a way of showing the temperature. This contributes to the overall aesthetic of the app!
One thing I wish to see in the future (that I am aware the developers are currently working on) is a widget feature.
TLDR; This app has everything clearly said and is easy to operate, and I highly recommend getting it!

Thanks! And yes, widgets are on the way.
I would distinguish between minimalist design for function and minimalist design for the giggles. This app is the latter sort. I don’t get the dots, or the navigation. Swiping around keeps popping up the premium screen. I’d be happy to purchase if I knew what information this app’s interface was actually conveying. I feel like there’s some Soviet style secret codes in this app. I don’t get the point. The point of minimalist design is to convey information clearly. This app is the opposite of that.

Thank you for the constructive feed back. About the dots, it's a numerical way to represent the temperature. For example 72º would be 7 solid dots and 2 hollow dots. It's there as something unique yet visually appealing( at least that was the aim). As far as the in-app purchase, you will be able to activate the multi city location page with temp condition and local time, the hourly and weekly consolidated page and the consolidated weather details page. From the surveys it does appear some sort of on boarding would be helpful and that is one of the things we're working on but right now the focus is on adding a weather widget. Again, thank you.🙏
Oh yeah, if you didn't know already, you tap the icons to display the additional weather details.
Pay to see weekly forecast
I understand supporting app developers, I understand paying for premium services on a free app, I understand paying for a unique app. I don’t understand being told an app is free and having to pay money to see the weekly forecast, an extremely necessary and basic feature for any weather app. How many people actually need an app to tell them the current weather? I use weather apps to tell me what to expect. What a shame, because this app was cool and has potential.

I understand and thanks for the review, btw the weekly weather is free. You just have to tap the icon and it will give you the 5 day forecast. The page for in-app has the weekly and hourly forecast. You will also have access to change location and see city data including current city temp, location and conditions as well as a detailed page of weather details. I thought about ads but felt it would ruin the app and most people hate ads especially since those ads now track you online. I'm working on adding a weather widget now since I believe in adding as much value as possible. Literally everything I make off of in-pp goes right back into this app and then some.
