There’s a new weather app out today from Robocat. It’s called Haze, and it’s quite attractive and minimalist, as befits the current crop of cutting edge, Retina-ready apps (a flatter, more vibrant design with none of the skeuomorphic bric-a-brac that makes so many apps look infantile). I generally use Cross Forward Consulting’s Check the Weather, because it’s beautiful, fast, and simple, and that’s not likely to change. But Haze is worth a look. It’s even simpler yet and uses both color animations and an intuitive swiping interface to immediately present the most important information about current conditions. The app is so simple, in fact, that it may take a little hunting around if you’re looking for more detail. The thing is, Haze somehow makes this fun.
The app is on sale for a limited time. You may hardly be looking for yet another weather app, but isn’t it reassuring that when it comes to the efficient presentation of data, no problem is ever left entirely and satisfactorily resolved?
