Introducing the new Sun

    Did you wonder where the Sun went? Wonder no more. Introducing the new Sun [corny Apple-executive voice].

    I've found the perfect replacement for Google's, now discontinued, weather API. The Norwegian Meteorological Institute provides some very extensive data, free of charge. I'm surprised too, the Norwegians usually don't give anything away.

    Beside the new data provider, Sun has received a major UI-overhaul: Brand new forecast view, more logical gestures, new colors, sounds and animations. Last but not least, Sun also includes a very original (and never-before-seen) sliding settings panel.

    And yes, disclaimer: I've been manipulating Copenhagen's temperature like a maniac.

    Try the app.

    iOS 6 is (probably) required. It works really well on the iPhone 5, but is noticeably more laggy on iPad 3. It's still just an experiment!

    We gave the Norweigians the oil and now they give us free data.

    Great design Jakob, looks fantastic on the iPhone 5 and the animations are smooooth.

    I'm stoked to see this come back! It looks awesome! The sliding nav is very well done, feels native. A few things:

    1. When I change colors, the the Current Location screen never reloads.

    2. Previews of the color schemes in the menu would be better than all gray

    3. Does this new API give chance of rain percentages? That would be really great.

    Thanks and great work!

    Nice, I like the design simplicity! You might want to check the graphics in the minimized view ( where all the four chosen cities are displayed at the same time ) as they seem a bit distorted. Other than that - splendid work!

    How come I cannot find this app in appstore? Haven't released in China or something? Maybe you can show me the icon of this app. ;-)

    Just tried it with my iphone, well, cool stuff indeed! Love it!
    Probably some details should be noticed--when I hold one page and is about to turn it to another page, it just keeps swaying...
    Anyway, great work, sir!

    A few things...
    1) The changing app icon with the color theme you pick in app is sweet as hell.
    2) Like @Dustin Tanner said, the app doesn't reload the current location weather after the color change.
    3) It won't let me change any of the other locations.
    4) And there needs to be a better way to see the different color schemes.

    This is one of the best web app I've seen so far. Would appreciate if you could share a few tips on making this app. ;)

    Very neat dude, Changing the icon's color every time you change the color is a great touch.
