Whimsical Weather Doodle iOS app is free for a limited time

The whimsical Weather Doodle app, currently ranked #2 for weather apps in the App Store, is free for a limited time. The app features beautiful, animated collages in a very simple and elegant interface. The actual data is powered by WeatherBug, which is one of the most popular online weather services available.

The animated graphics really bring this app to life. The sun rises, clouds drift across the screen and raindrops/ fall from an animated, blustery sky. The app comes with one installed theme, called Paperscape, and additional themes can be purchased within the app.

Features include:

  • Animated weather conditions and forecasts - watch the weather come alive!
  • Gorgeous retina graphics
  • Full universal app - iPad compatible
  • Take a screenshot of the weather and share! (Facebook, Twitter, etc...)
  • Intuitive, seamless user interface - just swipe and smoothly glide between locations
  • Themeable! Each art theme features its own unique art and animation style
  • Art changes to reflect the time of day
  • Art changes to reflect the current moon phase
  • 5-day forecast
  • Current conditions
  • Ability to select from individual weather stations within a city
  • Expandable! More themes are coming - download them through in-app purchase as they become available
  • Choose from Metric or Imperial units
  • Weather description, wind speed and humidity

This is a beautiful app that will put a smile on your face each time you check the weather. It's not as advanced as some of the other weather apps and there is no radar view, but for the basic weather information it's fine and very fun! The app is universal so it will work on an iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad. It's free for a limited time so go get it!
