Coming soon - minimal iOS weather app

UPDATE: Now available from the App Store.

In the process of learning new things, I wanted to learn more about Geolocation on the iPhone as I'd never done any before. To do that I decided to make myself a simple weather app. As it developed I started to sketch out a few more ideas until eventually it became Now + Next + Later – a simple weather app that tells you the weather for your current location.

Rather than use the usual weather icons I opted for a simple cross device as part of a particle system. This is used to give an abstract notion of clouds, complete with wind speed as well as being used to display rain – in various intensity – and snow.

There's lots of feature rich weather apps on the app store as well as some beautiful minimalistic ones like Solar and Blue. But I built this for myself to learn new stuff and thought I might as well release it.
