Solar: A Stunning New Weather App for Your iPhone and iPad
I have quite a few weather apps, and I really thought I was “done” ….. until I saw this one. Solar was just released this week, and it is very different and very beautiful.
I love simple utility apps, and Solar fits this perfectly. It won’t give you lots of details, but it gives you the current weather, temperature, and the forecast for the hours and days ahead. All the stuff you really need.
And the screens are presented with beautiful colors. Subtle, changing colors. Hot temperatures will present with reds and oranges, cooler temperatures display with soft blues. Gorgeous.
You can add cities and swipe from screen to screen to see them quickly. A double tap will put four on the screen at once.
Slide your finger up, and you can watch the clock move and the temperature displayed for the hours ahead.
Slide your finger down, and the next three days of temps and weather are on the screen.
Lovely to look at. A delight to use.
Solar is 99¢ in the iTunes store.
