Climendo iOS app

October 13, 2014

It’s been a long time since I wrote about a weather app, and for good reason—Dark Sky came out, and it’s great. That said, and as with any weather app, you have to have a little faith in its forecasts; you kind of have to make a deal with yourself that this service’s data is going to be your canonical data. If you don’t make that deal, then you’re constantly going to be questioning the app’s data.

The problem for me is that I question the data no matter what, and I’ve said for a long time that I’d like an app that “averages” the data from all of the competing providers, which is exactly what Climendo does.

The presentation isn’t great (and in fact, it’s a little confusing), but the sentiment is there, and I think with a little polish this app could become a daily driver. The name is hideous and the icon is even worse, but the idea is a great one and I hope to see them iterate on it (though I’m not too confident on that front as it hasn’t been updated since July).
