Haze weather app
99 cents for iOS devices at the Apple App Store
As the February storms keep rolling in, you’re probably spending more time than usual with the weather app on your iPhone. Here’s an eye-catching alternative from Denmark.
Haze delivers the usual weather info, but uses a delightful minimalist design, an excellent combination of beauty and efficiency. It has three screens for tracking sunshine, temperature and precipitation. A glowing sphere in midscreen contains the single most important piece of information in each category--the current temperature, for instance.
Touch the central sphere, and it’s surrounded by smaller spheres that provide greater detail--today’s high and low temperatures, wind speed and direction, and wind chill factor. Swipe your finger downward, and you see predicted temperatures for the next five days. The other screens are equally informative, and you can activate a tilt control feature that lets you navigate between them simply by rocking the iPhone back and forth.
There are plenty of good weather apps, but its visual elegance and rich set of features makes Haze one of the best.
