New weather app for the iPhone by David Smith, it’s really something. It’s fast, it’s clever, and it’s distinctive. I’ve been using it for about a week and it’s fair to say it’s now the only weather app I need: it works at a glance for what’s going on right now; detailed hourly and daily forecasts are just a slide away; and, most interestingly, in the U.S. it hooks up to Dark Sky’s API for short term precipitation forecasts. It’s rare that a new app knocks an old one off my first home screen; Check the Weather knocked two off.
Just $2 in the App Store. You’re nuts if you don’t buy it.
