We just can’t get enough of weather apps here at Beautiful Pixels. There’s no shortage of weather apps on the App Store but we love that each week out of all the mail we get, there is that one weather app that makes us smile. Weather Neue is that app this week.
Weather Neue is a minimalistic weather app that shows you what you need to know. It isn’t an over the top weather station for you iOS device. The app has one main view and when you launch it, there are some nice animations thrown in. The temperature at the current location is the highlight here and while it is retrieving the weather conditions, the temperature value changes randomly and everything slides into place when it has finished getting the information. When you tap the city name, you are taken to a settings page with a view change previously seen in National Parks by National Geographic. The settings page also lets you choose a theme for the app. These themes instantly remind you of Clear. The developers have even styled a nice a notification that pops down when you send or cancel a tweet sharing the app from the settings page. The icons used in the app are drool worthy.
I hope a future update adds a live background theme based on current weather and if Apple allowed 3rd party apps to have a live icon, this app would have a fixed position on my home screen. The icon itself makes this app worthy of your iOS device. It is hard to say anything else negative about Weather Neue since it is available for free on the App Store.
Update: Weather Neue is also available for Android phones on Google Play. You can download it here.
