Aero Weather Is An Animated, iOS 7-Ready Weather App For iPhone

Aero Weather Is an Animated, iOS 7-Ready Weather App for iPhone

iOS: Weather apps are a dime a dozen, but Aero Weather combines form and function in an attractive and informative way. The animated backgrounds, simple temperature graph and gesture controls are all designed to be minimal yet functional.

Aero Weather is one of those apps where everything you see is there for a reason. Current conditions are in large print, along with the city you're viewing (you can track as many cities as you want, or you can let Aero Weather use your GPS location to get local conditions). The five-day forecast is on the main screen, and a swipe to the left brings out the hourly forecast. A swipe to the right brings up the app's settings and the cities you're tracking. You can toggle fahrenheit or celsius, turn on the app's icon badge for weather alerts, and enable/disable push notifications. Just for fun, tilt your phone, and you'll get that iOS 7 "parallax" effect.

When I tested it out, it didn't display the right temperature for my location when I allowed it to choose via GPS. When I manually added my city, it worked fine, and after closing and reopening the app, all the temperatures were correct. I also couldn't get the icon badge to work (I contacted the developer about it and he said he was working on it).

Beyond the initial quirks, the app is only a buck. Aero Weather is nicely designed, informative at a glance and worth a look. Hit the link below to check it out.

    It looks nice, but it looks almost identical to the Apple iOS 7 Weather app, so why would I prefer this over the stock app?

    I still prefer the yahoo weather app, the ios 7 one is basically just a trimmed down version of that. The full app has everything from wind speeds to cloud maps. It even shows you a full screen picture of the city in the weather it says in the background. (Eg: Melbourne is rainy and it's the evening, you get a background of Melbourne on a rainy evening)
