There are three things about this brand-new weather app which really stand out to me:

  • David’s using Idlewild as the typeface, which is a gorgeous choice.
  • Check the Weather is using the Dark Sky API, thus allowing you to see the short-term precipitation forecast in conjunction with the radar.
  • I can’t think of any other weather app that presents so much data in a manner that is so quickly accessible and so readable. The main screen shows you the current temp and weather plist the next three days. But swipe the main screen to the right and you get a 14-day forecast; swipe to the left and you get the hourly forecast; swipe up and you get the current radar.

This is a one-stop-shop weather app that doesn’t feel bloated. It reminds me of when Mobile Mail in iOS finally got a unified Inbox. Just $2 in the App Store.
