I think there are more than enough weather apps for iOS. But it turns out that it doesn’t really matter what I think, since every month there is going to be another developer to pop a new app with a good looking interface and well designed icons. Practically they all show the same information because most of them pull weather data from the same source. And that’s probably my main reason for reverting to Apple’s preinstalled weather app after a few weeks of playing with any new app.
This time though there is a new option that caught my attention and it’s not because of the information that it shows. It’s for the way it works! If you don’t already know it, Sun is a stunning weather web app developed specifically for iOS devices. Even though the information that it feeds you is the same as every other weather app, it has a very clean and minimal interface that runs on Safari and supports pinch and swipe gestures. Sun packs some extremely interesting and inspiring code and I think you should definitely give it a try just to see what web apps are capable of.
