“There is no such thing as bad weather, only different kinds of good weather.” John RuskinUsers’ needs are changing pretty fast and so do types of features which apps provide. However, there are some of them which haven’t lost the actuality ever since the first launch. A weather app can be called “ageless” without doubts. The need to know the forecast will hardly ever step aside, and the possibility to see it via a smartphone is essential. Today the variety of the choices allows every user, even the most demanding one, to find a perfect weather app. Designers are quite passionate about weather applications and create lots of various concepts since there is wide space for creativity. Graphic designers produce icons and illustrations in different styles which make all interfaces original and attractive. However, weather apps, as well as the others, require not only pleasant visual presentation but also a high level of usability. Designers always have to take care of delightful user experience even when an app contains minimum functionality like weather apps do. Clear interactions and attractive presentation is a key to success. Designers need to find the balance between these two points so that they could create an efficient and good-looking application which users will love. There are no certain trends or rules about how the weather app should look and work, only some common characteristics. For example, weather apps usually contain very little of copy. The user interfaces include many graphic details like icons and illustrations. The elements of UI should be functional so that users could utilize features the app provides and core data like temperature or humidity should perform effectively on different devices and in various environments. People say it is better to see once than to hear (or read). That’s why D4U gathered a collection presenting diverse weather app UI concepts. They include the variety of trends and show how designers approached the issue not only recently but also some time ago in the other conditions.
