Eye In Sky Weather is a really great app for those looking to truly simplify their weather experience. It takes accurate weather information and combines it with minimalism and elegance. This app is unique form most weather apps because it offers a fair amount of customization while still maintaining the bare essentials. As a result, you only get the information you want, nothing less and nothing more.
This app will provide you with 12 icon sets that can be used to customize the look and feel of your weather experience. Additionally, it allows you to upload your own icon sets. This makes it easy to have the app look exactly like you want it. You will also get 4 different widgets. Each of these widgets is highly customizable and will display all of the information you want to see.
Unfortunately, this app has a couple problems. For starters, the GPS functionality is very poor. In most cases, the app’s location will usually be a town over or nearby the one you’re actually in. On top of that, the selections for manual location entry are very limited. You cannot manually enter a small town. In other words, if you live in a small town, you have no choice but to deal with the minor inaccuracy.
Conclusion and download link
Overall, this app functions properly. However the location woes can be very annoying if you are not in a popular city. This app also has an optional pro version that will disable all ads and help support the developer. Generally speaking, this app is great and displays simple weather information much more elegantly than most weather apps.
