We've looked at a long list of weather apps here at iGB. Minimal weather apps are great and that's one of the reasons why apps like Sky, Yahoo! Weather etc. stick on our dashboard. Still, no harm in looking at what a little creativity can lead to, right?

Idol Forecast is an iPhone and iPad weather app that takes a unique approach to presenting weather data. Let me get this straight: it's not for those quick glances at the weather. Idol Forecast is a heavier app that has interesting graphics and sounds and of course, weather displays.

The general trend in the App Store, as far as Weather apps go, is a standard design. Large temperature readouts, some cool icons that depict the weather and a forecast for the rest of the week – this is how most  weather apps look. Idol Forecast doesn't look one bit like them. As I said, it's not the usual weather app.

At best, Idol Forecast is a fancy app. Although setting up your location in the app is easy (and you can add multiple locations), the controls appear to be a tad unresponsive at times. And they're tiny.

But the visual interface is quite good. In fact, you're treated to a real-time-like ambiance that describes the weather. The animations are smooth and quite thoughtful with forecast for the rest of the day getting reflected in the animation.

Idol Forecast Weather iPhone App

Idol Forecast brings a few interesting themes too. You might get bored of the default theme pretty fast but a couple of themes (that can be bought as an in-app purchase) look absolutely stunning.

Basically, how the weather is represented has changed but you still get all the necessary data and an 8-day forecast. The app might indulge you.

Idol Forecast is free (iPhone version) on the app store.
