Weather Line is an impeccably designed, delightfully crafted weather app that comes from another one of those director, developers, designer trios that seems to be working so wonderfully well lately. The director for Weather Line, Ryan Jones, was gracious enough to expound on why the world needed another weather app, what iOS 7 allowed them to do with it, and what his role entailed.
First up, what made you want to make Weather Line? What did Weather Line bring the table that no other weather app captured for you before?
What, if anything, did iOS 7 allow you to do that previous versions of iOS wouldn't?
How did you like being an app director?
Thanks Ryan! The thoughtfulness is obvious in the app!
You can find Weather Line in the App Store.

What'd be awesome is if your boss was reading this and responded with "overpaid". Because no one deserves money in exchange for work! :)
Thank you Rene. People deserve to be paid for their efforts. Why does everyone think apps should be free? Just because some developers are going freemium doesn't mean that everyone can apply that model to their business.
if you cant afford a $3 app, you cant afford a smartphone.
Haha Rene with the quick, witty response.
But I think what I would like more is if I had the opportunity to hide native apps so that I could actually replace them with 3rd-party apps. Call me a nut, but I love for my iPhone to be neatly organized.
it's a shame their isn't a try before you buy, I like to have the best apps but don't want to buy 10 before I settle on one... Sent from the iMore App
Does it support the display of the temperature in Celisus?
Im guessing there's no iPad version? My main device is the iPad Mini and there is some serious under development for the iPad IMO. I'd pay for almost any app if it was designed for the iPad. It's kind of embarrassing when I use my Mini Retina and I have a iPhone only app open. People comment why does that app look so huge? I thought this was the retina iPad? Hasn't the iPad been out for years? If that's what apps look like on these I'm not going to buy one. It looks like an elderly person's touch tone phone with the giant numbers....True story.
