Haze brings colorful, gesture-rich weather to your iPhone

Haze is a new weather app by the folks at Robocat and Taptanium, including developer Willi Wu and designer Michael Flarup. Not surprisingly, it's joyfully executed.

Haze gives you a radiantly crafted 5 day forecast at a glance. Built from the ground up with OpenGL ES and OpenAL. Swipe through and explore weather information related to sunshine, temperature and rain with a polished audiovisual experience. Is it going to be warmer tomorrow? Don't read it. See it. The beautifully animated background shows you the trend. Use Haze frequently to unlock colorful themes and customize the look.

They've had some issues with the date label, but a fix is already on the way. If you're an aficionado of finely crafted, elegantly presented weather apps, check it out now while it's still 66% off on launch sale.

Haze brings colorful, gesture-rich weather to your iPhone


Wasn't impressed with the video. It shows a lot of beautiful weathered scenery but very little of the apps functions or abilities that would make me choose to spend $1on it over similarly priced or free weather apps. Maybe show the cool things that it does that's different from the others.

I don't get the hype on this app. If I am going to spend the time to open an app and check the weather, I'd like to have more information available to me. A quick swipe down of the notification center seems to give me the same info. Now if Apple opened up the notification center to third parties, this could make for a cool weather widget.
