The number of great looking apps on iOS is massive and we have featured a lot of them here. With the introduction of Android 4.0 (ICS) and eventually 4.1 (Jellybean), Matias Duarte has been changing Android for the better. The overall experience of using a stock Android device is improving with each update. While the number of beautiful apps on the platform is really low, there are some apps that are spectacular. Weather Eye by Tim Clark is one such app.
Weather Eye is a minimal weather app that shows you the current weather and a 4 day forecast. The typography here is great and the highlights of the app are the ability to pick from some of the best icon sets available and the widgets. The main screen is divided into two parts. The upper half of the screen has the current weather presented to you and the lower half has 4 small sections for the 4 day forecast. I find it annoying that I can’t swipe between locations for weather and have to tap a drop down to change the location. I mainly use this app for its widgets on my Nexus 7 and I can’t imagine using any other weather app right now on the device. You can customize the widgets with the icon sets provided and make them blend in well with your current wallpaper. There are 4 different types of widgets available ranging from a multi city forecast to just an icon with the temperature. Almost everything in the widgets is customizable and it is almost impossible to make things look ugly here.
Weather Eye pushes all the correct buttons and is the only weather app+widget you need on your Android device. The icon sets will please all types of weather enthusiasts. The app is available for free with ads on the Play Store and the pro key that is available for around $2 depending on your region that gets rid of the ads. Do yourself a favour and make your weather experience on Android look elegant with Weather Eye.
