Peepometer is an app to be admired— even if you don’t care for its unique interface— because it successfully reimagines the presentation of weather information on the iPad. The app’s star is its retro-inspired layout that arranges weather information around porthole-inspired windows with graphical, weather-related information. Like its iPhone cousin Swackett, Peepometer illustrates the weather via outfits on stick figure-like “Peeps” and includes various easter eggs throughout the app that can be found by touching and moving various elements. The app also includes detailed weather information such as barometer, wind, compass, a map, and a week’s worth of forecast. Honestly, the only reason Peepometer isn’t essential is that its quirkiness may not appeal to everyone looking for a basic weather app, and it’s not free like its iPhone counterpart.

App Store Description

A classic, hand-crafted weather observation app created by swackett (as seen on NBC's TODAY Show).

Peepometer 1000 is an elegant weather observation instrument with a retro, 1950's-era feel. Replicating the look and feel of a mechanical device in every detail, Peepometer's vintage gauges and dials are faithfully reproduced in stunning high resolution. Special attention is paid to mechanical functionality — with the gauge needles even responding to subtle bumps and inertia (on iPad 2 and newer devices).

And of course, Peepometer is designed specifically for retina display in the new iPad. Peepometer 1000 will transport you back to time when meteorologists, the aviation industry, and weather enthusiasts around the world used mechanical gauges and dials to observe weather conditions. This app is a must-have for any weather enthusiast.
