I just spent a few days with a new weather app called Kairoskopion. I know, there are a ton of weather apps in the Play store, why should you try a new one? Well, the new Kairoskopion weather app by Salad Dressing Industries is worth a look. The people at Salad Dressing Industries have created something simple, but special with this app. If you are looking for a new weather app read on to see if this is the one for you.
The first thing you notice about the Kairoskopion weather app is the gorgeous material design. It fits in perfectly with the new design language that Google is rolling out. The colors are bright and vivid, they really pop on screen. The next thing you notice is how simple the app is. Once you start the app, it finds your location, then displays the temperature along with a picture that depicts the weather: a sun, raindrop, clouds, etc. The option menu can be found by clicking on the little gear in the upper right hand corner of the screen. There is only one option, the ability to change from celsius to fahrenheit. The app makes it very clear how Salad Dressing Industries feels about fahrenheit. It’s worth downloading the app just to see what happens when you change from celsius to fahrenheit.
There is also the option to check out the weekly forecast by touching the Kairoskopion Weekly bar. Once your into the weekly forecast, you again notice the design. It’s gorgeous and simple to use at the same time. All the forecast information you need for the next five days is laid out in an easy to understand format. The only thing I haven’t figured out are the seemingly random set of four icons that appear at the bottom of the page. I don’t know if they have some meaning or if they are there simply to provoke thought.
I have to admit that I love this weather app. It offers the perfect amount of information for me. I don’t need a weather radar on my phone, just tell me the temperature and weather conditions. Some people might need more information in their weather app, but I would bet that most don’t. This is a weather app for the masses. It simply works, looks good and brings a healthy sense of humor to the table. If you decide to try the Kairoskopion weather app, make sure to read the description in the Google Play store, it’s worth the trip all on it’s own.
