YoWindow Free Weather – Indie app of the day
What is YoWindow Free Weather?
YoWindow Free Weather is a (you guessed it) free weather application that not only provides weather information but looks good doing it. There is also a live wallpaper and static wallpaper included to help enhance the experience.
The weather app functions as you’d expect a weather app to be. It shows your current weather and the forecast and you can check out the weather website if you need more detailed information. The part that people seem to really like is the app changes its appearance based on the weather. If it’s sunny, the app will be sunny. If it’s rainy, the app will be rainy. You get the point. You can also fast forward through the day to see the spectrum of weather changes which is a really nice design touch even if it’s not really all that functional. The landscape also changes based on the season which is also a nice touch.
The live wallpaper does essentially the same thing as the app. It’ll be whatever the weather outside is so you can see what the weather is from the home screen without opening the app. There is a static version as well if the live wallpaper is too battery hungry. In either case, it’s a nice addition and saves you the effort of having to find an app that does the same thing.
