Weather Neue is a fast one-screen weather app that’s fast and minimal (without mincing on useful data). The whole app loads up in three seconds flat on my iPhone 4S, showing…
- temperature Toronto
- a four-day forecast
- the current conditions
- precipitation chance
- and wind speed / direction
…all without fiddling with any settings. But if you simply must have some sort of controls to play with, you can summon a menu from the top of the screen to toggle Metric units, or select one of four themes (I prefer Cloudy). If the weather data somehow gets out of date, you can apparently shake your iPhone to refresh it – but I’ve never had to do this.
I used to think that the Yahoo! weather widget in iOS 5 was enough, but Weather Neue has made a surprising convert out of me. It’s fast, gets me the temperature and POP, and shows me the forecast for the next few days. It’s literally all the relevant information I need in one tap. It’s also completely free – so download it here.
