In 2014, we were lamenting the state of weather apps. Most were too simple to be useful, or painfully overcomplicated and loaded with silly gimmicks.
We thought we could do better by making something obvious: an app that showed only the most important info in one straightforward page.
So we spent a year refining Hello Weather and field-testing it in the unpredictable Chicago climate. We made sure it’s great for hot, cold, rain, wind, and snow.
We launched version 1.0 in 2016, added an Android version in 2017, and completed a major redesign in early 2018. We've been gradually making the app more powerful, adding widgets, radar, and more data sources.
This little project has vastly exceeded our modest ambitions! We've received accolades from all over, and numerous feature spots on the App Store.
