Support Skift’s Independent Journalism

Did you know? Skift has newsrooms in New York and London and full-time editors in Singapore, Los Angeles, and San Francisco, too.

… But what if there were a weather app that was designed to make you want to spend time looking at it? Solar aims to deliver that kind of user experience with a minimalist gestural interface and gorgeous full-screen color swashes to represent temperature data.

Solar’s UI completely avoids buttons and chrome. On top of that luscious-looking blended color background, the app displays the current temperature, the name of your current city, and a clock icon representing the current time.
