Weather Neue & Sun iPhone Apps: Minimal Designs, Easy Forecasts
July 24th, 2012
These days, with the heat and the rain, it always makes sense to open up a weather app before you leave home to check out what the temperature will be like. These two new apps are elegant and minimal, easy to use and best of all free.
Instead of an over-cluttered display, Weather Neue focuses on the weather predictions on your current location. There are only a few settings and there’s a cool animation while the app figures out your location and displays the weather conditions as well as a forecast. It’s available for free through the app store or for Android phones through Google Play.
Sun is another weather app, which has an even simpler display. To get Sun, you just need to navigate to this page and then select “add to my home screen”. Once you’ve done that, the app will work just like any other. The app has a couple of themes and lets you check the weather as well as the forecast for four cities. Sun, however isn’t an iOS app, and instead it’s a web app that runs in Safari. Still, it looks pretty slick, and it is free.
