#7. Thermo Diem
For ages, I have never been able to develop even a little likeness for weather reports. The reason is simple: weather reports are all about mundane figures of Fahrenheit. Thankfully, this Thermo Diem has dropped these figures while comparing weather with that of last 24 hours. Instead of giving figures, the app provides me outputs like much warmer, warmer, slightly warmer, similar, slightly cooler, cooler and much cooler. Obviously, whenever I go out, I will be feeling weather and not the figures. Hence, I appreciate this app that considers relative humidity, wind, dew points and temperature. The app provides features like full Apple Watch support, added notification reminder to send to your Watch, icon added to show current conditions, iOS 8 notification widget updated and more.
