Looks great, nice idea.
It's just a shame in bonnie Scotland we would only ever see stuff on the blue :(

from concept this looks totally fantastic, visuals would be phenomenal, this would the kind of app i just open to see the animation going on even tough i have no iphone or smartphone :P go for it.
Edit: btw, colors are great, but using white as a "middle" point was something i was questioning? what color is the type and icons then? :D
This is different!
No words. Every your works buddy is really fuckin'awesome.
Nice color and typography
Awesome idea! The UI reminds me of Clear, that to-do manager which sells like if there was no tomorrow. Love this simplicity! White row? Not sure. Snow is white. Milk is white. Temperature... hmmm. May be better to make a gradient from fire red to deep blue, so the color mappings make more sense. On the other hand, it's visually appealing. Nice touch!
Drag cell to left to reveal additional info below the cell; Ease transition by a 2:1 gear translation (makes for a super cool feel). As the user drags the big 86° cell to the left, all other cells turn dark or lose their saturation. Now the cool part: Columns are color-coded in the same way. Drag them up & down for more info. Remember that state. Drag info blade to the right to go back to main screen. Other cells will become saturated / brighter again.
And of course: Hissing and crackling sounds when revealing info, based on weather condition! (User must be able to turn them off)
Settings: Drag the whole main screen up to reveal a toolbar. On the right: Settings info-i button. Tapping it transforms the UI in a crazy way, revealing the settings. Not on the back-side of course. Everyone does that, and it's boring like hell :D
Alternatively: No settings. Only thing the user enters is the location. So: Drag the whole thing down to reveal a search input field. Already shows current location. On the right: GPS-button. May also be additional to settings.
Upon startup (hard start, awaking from background, whatever): Location is visible at the top on a blade below those nifty colored cells. No cell is expanded yet. Evenly distributed heights. Then as soon as fresh weather data arrived (and after a minimum of 0.5s has passed), the whole thing transforms like Thermotron, banging against the upper boundary of the screen and thereby covering the location info the user is aware of already, while the relevant cell expands its height and all others shrink with a ripple effect that blews users minds away at Warp 9.9. With some cool rattling and latching sounds of fine mechanics. The ice cream.
Dude, I did some massive up-front research on weather-APIs for my simple weather app sub-side-project (http://drbl.in/cLbE) so that might be something we can get started with :D
Here's something you might want to read about the market of weather apps. Quite interesting stuff: http://bit.ly/gWWmDX
That's just awesome! You have to bring it to the app store! :)
Great idea, and could work really well if executed right. I agree with @Josef Richter, make it as simple as possible and ship it!
I might want to see a large scale for temperatures though. While I live in Toronto, Canada and temperatures tends to go up and down like a roller coaster sometimes, most often I would reckon temperatures stay with 10 degrees (celsius), which really isn't that much of a jump in terms of the app's colour scale. So either make the bars smaller and add more, or if it's summer or somewhere hot, there's no need to show the blue hues (unless of course people in Florida find 70 degrees fahrenheit worthy of a blue cool colour).
very nice, I loved the colors!
@Alexandr Balyberdin it's was actually a humorous feedback. You can get confused between 30 °F and 30 °C. So @Eddie Lobanovskiy , you shouldn't use only degree symbol on it. Try to use it with °F or °C symbols.
I'm having a hard time thinking of what else this could have/shouldn't have--I say go for it! But definitely test it as much as you can since it's so focused/dependent on the user-experience.
beautiful. raw simplicity
Brilliant. Now this is an app I can see myself using. I very quickly stopped using Clear because it was too simple for my task keeping needs. However, the simplicity of this is perfect for my (and many others) weather needs.
Please make this happen!
As simple as Clear app ! Brilliant !!!!
Simple yet functional
Very cool! Reminds me of Clear.
Nice stuff Eddie! Since this has a strong tie between temp & color it would be cool if the apps icon would reflect the color of the temperature reading, thus for very quick info update with out opening the app you could be all like... "Do I need a hoodie? Dark orange, nope."
*Not sure that app icons can actually do this sort of thing...
Amazing concept! Seems like I should create my own design too, as everyone has its own... But I'm sure it won't be as good as this one! ;)
how will the text color look like on yellow and/or white?
I would buy this so fast...
Esp if you make an iPad version I could just leave sitting out on my desk.
@Eddie Lobanovskiy What part of FL? I'm in Ft. Lauderdale.
