Screen Shot 2013-03-06 at 4.24.55 PM

There’s no shortage of weather apps in the App Store. Every week it seems like a new weather app is enticing us with beautiful graphics and a unique design aesthetic.

While the apps are plentiful, there hasn’t been any mobile-oriented hardware related to checking the weather. It’s an untapped market many haven’t given much thought to. In the age of the iPhone, what value does a traditional thermometer even have?

Robocat has already put out some great iOS weather apps, and now it’s launching a Kickstarter campaign for Thermodo, a physical thermometer which integrates with the iPhone.

Weather apps are a dime a dozen these days. iOS designers have proven that they know how to create beautiful, intuitive weather apps like Dark Sky, Solar, Today Weather, Weather Neue, Check the Weather, and so on.

One of the earlier weather iPhone apps with a unique, beautiful design was Outside. The same company behind Outside, Robocat, has released a totally new weather app in the App Store today called Haze.

Horizon App Minimally Mixes Calendar And Weather

I was thinking that I’d make an incredibly clever play on the Wash’n’Go ads here, drawing a comparison between the new Horizon app, which lets you check the weather and your calendar at the same time. “Use two apps when you leave the house?” I would ask, before wrestling with the punchline, and somehow turning the original “Not me – I just want to Wash… And Go!” into something clever and calendar/weather related.

But as you can plainly see, I failed. I made a cup of delicious coffee instead, and then typed the code to add the break to this post…

IMG_1866

After the untethered Evasi0n jailbreak was released for iOS 6 devices, we told you about a bug that was causing Apple’s stock Weather app to crash on jailbroken iPhones. On the iPad, the jailbreak was unhiding an old iPhone version of the Weather app.

There was a manual way to fix the bug, but now an official patch has been released in Cydia for all devices that have been jailbroken with Evasi0n.

Nooly is a New Hyper-Accurate, Hyper-Local Weather App [Daily Freebie]

nooly-4

There are weather apps, and then there are weather apps; Nooly is, apparently, the latter. Nooly is so accurate, its press release claims, the app “is capable of predicting the exact minute it will rain or snow and can do so effectively, wherever you are, for every 0.4 square miles.” That’s pretty precise.

Get Super Minimalist With WeatherCube For iPhone, iPad [iOS Tips]

WeatherCube

Weather apps are fairly thick on the ground in the App Store, and iOS even comes with its own Weather app, and has done so since day one. If that’s good enough for you, then keep on enjoying it; there’s nothing wrong with that.

However, if you’re a big fan of apps like Clear, where the interface is simple, minimalist, and just gets out of the way, you’ll love WeatherCube for iPad. It’s a universal app, and chances are you’ll dig it’s clean, functional lines enough to use it often on your iPad 3, 4, or Mini.

Check it out.

Hurricane Sandy Gave Navigation, News, Finance Apps A Massive Boost… But Not Weather?

Hurricane Sandy Gave Navigation, News, Finance Apps A Massive Boost… But Not Weather?

Use of weather apps actually decreased during Hurricane Sandy.

When Hurricane Sandy left millions of people across the East Coast of the United States without electricity, portable, battery-powered devices like smartphones and tablets were all they had to rely on. Not only did they provide a means of entertainment, but they also allowed those affected by the storm to follow the latest news and weather information.

With that being the case, Sandy had some interesting effects on app statistics. Compared with the preceding week in New York City, use of navigation apps more than doubled, while those in the finance category saw a 74% boost. Photography and news apps also became more popular, while, surprisingly, weather apps remained closed.

This Weather App Makes iOS Look Like Windows Phone [Review]

Looks quite a lot like Windows

Weather On is a weather forecasting app for iOS that is remarkable for one thing: its very obvious nods to Microsoft’s mobile operating system.

Open it up, and you’ll see a selection of square and rectangular tiles that look and behave just like the tiles you’ve seen on the latest smartphones running Windows Phone.

How To Remove Apple’s Stock iOS Apps Without Jailbreaking [Video]

How To Remove Apple’s Stock iOS Apps Without Jailbreaking [Video]

Goodbye, Stocks!

While most of Apple’s stock iOS apps are pretty handy, there are a few that the large majority of us probably never open. I’m talking about apps like Stocks, Voice Memos, and Weather (which always seems to be inaccurate in the U.K.). Unfortunately, the Cupertino company doesn’t allow us to remove these, so the only way to do it was to jailbreak. Until now.

Thanks to a nifty new web app, you can temporarily remove stock iOS icons from your device without jailbreaking. Here’s how.
