Eye In Sky Is A Clean, Minimalist Weather App For Android

Android: Eye in Sky Weather is a free, elegant weather app for Android phones and tablets. The interface is simple and minimal, and the customisable home screen widgets fit right in with Android’s Holo theme. Best of all, it’s completely free.

Previously known as WeatherEye, the app has returned stronger than ever after breaking when Google silently killed its Weather API. Eye In Sky dispenses with backgrounds and tons of animations in favour of a simpler, straight-forward approach to giving you the weather on the go. All of the basic features you would expect from a weather app are included, including current and 48-hour forecasts, current conditions, weekly forecasts and more.

What makes Eye In Sky special is the depth to which you can customise the app. The app has several icon sets you can toggle between, so you can pick the style you like the best. The app also features customisable home screen widgets. You can select the size or the overall style of widget that suits your phone the best, or choose a larger widget that keeps current conditions and weekly forecasts right on your home screen. The app is free and ad-supported. If you have $1.99 to spend on the pro key, you can support the developer and strip out the ads.
