How to work the Weather App in iOS7
Rain has never looked so good.
Okay, so last week I found a really cool weather app on the App Store. It was simple, straight to the point and mostly brutal. If it was raining, it would tell you with profanity. If you wanted to find out more, it would tell you to look outside, because, lets face it, that’s the best way to find out.
Well, the Weather App given to us by Apple doesn’t tell you that honestly. Instead it tells us through beauty. The whole screen is consumed by what’s happening outside, in real time, if it’s snowing, you will see snow falling on your screen. Everything else is there, like the weekly forecast, your current location and the temperature outside.
It’s not what just meets the eye, if you tap the temperature some additional information appears in it’s place, humidity, chance of rain and wind speed. Knowing which way your fringe will blow is always a good idea. We’ve all been there.
The temperature is now displayed in the Notification Center for your convenience. Nothing else to talk about, the weather is always a good place to start.
