Sunshine is a weather app offering you the latest weather forecast for up to seven days as well as several graphs to help you plan your day.
Price: Free (In-app purchases for extra features)
Sunshine is a beautiful weather app that has a wonderful material design that kind of gives me a Yahoo feel. That’s probably mostly to do with the purple, but it still is nice to look at.
It is powered by Forecast, which is just as good as any other weather provider. It automatically locks in on your location and, with a $1.99 upgrade price, you can add more locations.
You get a lot of the bells and whistles you would expect from a weather app such as wind speed, humidity, visibility and more. It also comes with notifications for rain, snow, sleet and fog.
That upgrade price also includes some very well-designed widgets which I feel covers most designs that you would want, although a clock added to it would be nice. There is a sharing template feature, so you can share different templates on social media; even though I haven’t used it, the more options, the better. They plan on adding Android Wear support, which I feel is a must, as well as more customization options.
This app is in a saturated market and really needs to add some unique features to stand out from the rest, but they are at a good starting point. Overall, it’s a solid app that I’m not sure will replace my current weather app just yet, but we will see where the developer takes it in the future.
Download and install Sunshine from the Google Play Store.
