The 10 Most Beautiful Mobile Weather Apps

There are many mobile weather apps out there, one betterlooking than the other. Let’s take a look at the most beautifully minimalistically designed, and useful, mobile weather apps for iPhone/iPad.

Ever since I discovered there were other weather apps out there, that were not only more appealing in design than the iPhone’s native app, but also gave an exquisite user experience, I was hooked on finding the newest weather apps.

The best and prettiest I’ve discovered? Take a look at the list of 10 apps below.

Haze ($1.99 / €1,79)
My favorite thing about Haze? Its so-called audiovisual experience. Haze is an app built by Robocat, and offers information about temperature, precipitation and the likes.

The animations in the background will tell you if it’ll be sunny or cloudy tomorrow, in a colorful visual way. By using Haze frequently, different rewards such as themes can be unlocked. See how Haze works in the video below.

Druppel (free)
Druppel (translated Drop), made by Coqtail, is not necessarily the best weather app out there, but it does show you how long it will take before it starts/stops raining, and how much it will rain. It consists of one single screen, in blue (rain) and yellow (no rain).

Weathercube (free)
Weathercube is a six-sided cube that contains different weather information on each colorful side. You just have to swipe, tap and pinch to access each side.

The app will give you information about temperature, cloudiness, windiness, humidity, percent cloud coverage and accumulated precipitation.

Check out Weathercube in the video below.

Blue ($0.99 / €0,79)
Blue is made by Oak, and gives you a differently colored app depending on the weather conditions of your location. There’s a different shade of that color for every time of day.

You can scroll through the day, and the shade will change. Other than this, it will give you the temperature and the forecast (cloudy, clear, overcast). That’s it!

Climate Clock ($0.99 / €0,79)
Climate Clock is, by far, my favorite out of the bunch. I use it as my main weather app, because it is beautifully minimalistic, tells you everything you need to know, and is available in colorscapes, black, or white.

Climate Clock was designed by Benjamin Wong, and is based on the idea of combining an analog clock, and the weather at different times of day.

The app can exactly tell you the temperature, the likelihood of precipitation, and the windspeed, every hour, of every day. It also shows you a ten day forecast. What else do you need? Take a look at the video below to see how it works!

Weather Dial ($0.99 / €0,79)
Weather Dial is a single screen app, and gives you all the basics, in a dark or light design. Hourly weather, 7-day forecast and chance of precipitation. It also adds times of sunrise and sunset!

Partly Cloudy ($0.99 / €0,79)
Partly Cloudy is an app, based on the concept of a clock, that works best when you want to know about precipitation, not so much about temperature. Granted, it is not the most logical or simple design, but it does look beautiful.

Solar ($1.99 / €1,79)
Solar is “a hyper-sensorial display of the day’s weather in dazzling, haptically rendered colorscapes.” The only thing you have to do to see hourly weather (temperature), is scroll up and down.

The color of the screen changes as the weather changes, bright colors for clear skies, darker colors for cloudy and dark ones. You can also see a three day forecast.

Find out how Solar works in the video below.

Conditions ($0.99/€0,79)
Conditions offers the most simple design in this top 10. What I like most about this app are the font, it makes a nice change from the simplistic fonts that are used in the other apps, and the funny shaped icons.

Other than that it offers you all the basic information, just in black and white.

Weathermob (free)
And now for something entirely different. Everyone knows Instagram right? Well, this Weathermob combines the weather with pictures. You can upload images of the current weather conditions of the location you’re in, and give a description.

You’ll get a weather report, from those who are experiencing it.

My Opinion
Quite frankly, I’m a sucker for simplistic design and little colorful animations. It is no surprise that I love every single one of these apps, and that I collect them.

The weather has never been this much fun to check, even when it rains and it’s icy cold.

I have no doubt that there are many app geeks out there like me, who can appreciate a good list of weather apps. I’d love to hear what you have to say about these 10 apps!

What About You?
So, what do you think? What’s your favorite weather app? Do you have any to add?

    You cheered me up! From a freezing cold city of Amsterdam, right into the hottest weather apps.

    Did not know many of them, so thanks for sharing.
