Solar and Sun iOS weather apps for consideration
There are a number of useful applications for various mobile platforms that can keep users right up to date with what the all important weather is going to be like, and today we have the Solar and Sun iOS apps for your consideration.
As iDownloadBlog are reporting developers are doing some great things with HTML5 recently, and the Sun application is the latest example of this. Sun is an HTML5 based web app for weather forecasts, and can provide forecasts for up to four different cities at once, which includes a city based on your current location.
Sun has been created by Jakob Henner and is designed to act just like a native iOS application. Once the app has been launched users are met with an iconic visual of the weather for a particular area, and everything is performed using swipe or pinching gestures.
A quick swipe left or right will take you between one of four cities, while pinching out will reveal the weather figures for an individual city. The information provided by the app is very basic, but users are given a four day forecast that includes a visual representation of what the day has in store. This includes high and low temperature along with a brief two to three word sentence describing the day.
To find out more and to download click here via mobile Safari. Once you are there you will need to tap the share button that is located at the bottom of the screen, and select Add to Home Screen. This will then create a bookmark to a web app on the Home screen.
Another application we have for you is Solar 1.0 that has only just been released that promises to provide a weather application that has been simply designed. Users that have already been using the app have been singing its praises, and Solar can be found on the App Store for the introductory price of Â£0.69/$0.99.
