Clear-Like Gestural Weather App Weathercube Goes Universal With New iPad Version
Weathercube has just gotten bigger. How so? Simple. Formerly an app optimized for iPhone and iPod touch only, Weathercube has just been made universal and natively compatible with iPad. As Weathercube developer Appsuperb puts it in the patch notes for the app's universal update:
Hey stunning-yet-amazingly-functional-weather-app-freak! We optimized Weathercube for iPad & iPad mini! Wowsers, that is one huge cube! Looooooooong swiping is now unlocked!Indeed, Weathercube is one stunning yet amazingly functional weather app. So much so, in fact, that we regarded it as AppAdvice's App of the Week shortly after its release in September last year. [caption id="attachment_375438" align="aligncenter" width="360"] Weathercube[/caption] But remember when we here at AppAdvice hailed Solar as "the Clear of weather apps"? Well, we spoke too soon. Weathercube is "the Clear of weather apps." And you only need to take one good look at it to know why. Weathercube uses color schemes that are quite reminiscent of Clear. But what really likens this weather app to the popular to-do app is its complete reliance on gestural inputs. As my colleague Christine points out in her review of the app, "Since there are absolutely no buttons or even iOS chrome in Weathercube, the app relies entirely on intuitive swipes and gestures to make your way around … the cube, that is!" And it's these same intuitive swipes and gestures that make the app's newly minted iPad version simply work. Compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad running iOS 6.0 or later, Weathercube is available in the App Store for $0.99. The newly updated app also includes a fix for an issue related to the app's handling of the current location. [gallery link="file" order="DESC"]
