In 2014, we were lamenting the state of weather apps. Most were either too simple to be useful, or heinously overcomplicated.
We believed we could do better by making something obvious: an app that showed only the most important info in one straightforward page, without any silly gimmicks.
So we spent over a year building and refining Hello Weather, and field-testing it in the frequently harsh Chicago climate. We made sure it’s great for hot, cold, rain, wind, and snow.
Eventually it proved so indispensible, we were certain it was worth sharing with the rest of Planet Earth. We launched it for iOS in 2016, added an Android version in 2017, and we’ve been gradually improving it ever since.
We’re not your typical software shop — we’re just friends who have real day jobs. We make Hello Weather in our occasional spare time because we we have a lot of fun working on it together.
Since this is a passion project and not a HARDCORE CAPITALIST ENDEAVOR, we can move as quickly or as slowly as we want. So we take our time to do it right.
We think through every little detail to keep Hello Weather fast, focused, and friendly.
We also love to try crazy ideas, like making an exclusive fan club and exposing our development process, so you can peek behind the scenes while we're working on new features.
