[prMac.com] San Francisco, California - The world's iPhone and iPod touch users may begin the new year hoping for rain: Weather Doodle, a beautifully visual, first-of-its-kind weather app has just landed in the iTunes App Store. Created by a games industry veteran, Weather Doodle is an artistically-focused, deliciously animated weather app that presents users with a radical new concept: checking the weather can actually be fun. Users can watch the sun rising amidst pale morning light, clouds gliding past the glowing moon and glistening raindrops falling from heavy skies. At an affordable $0.99 USD, this creative gem of an app is a fantastic value.
More than just a gorgeous weather app, Weather Doodle introduces iPhone / iPod touch users to a sophisticated weather art delivery system. From within the app itself users can download entirely new art themes to experience the weather in widely different visual styles - a first for weather apps. From animated, tactile paper collages to colorful, time-lapse block prints, Weather Doodle's visual flexibility promises a future full of imaginative, varied content.
Weather Doodle is the first release from Tiny Mammal, a San Francisco-based company that focuses on using technology in imaginative and unexpected ways. "There is huge, untapped creative potential in the world of weather apps," says Graham McDermott, Founder and Chief Mammal at Tiny Mammal. "An app like Weather Doodle that recognizes weather's inherent beauty and also appeals to iPhone users' appetite for elegant design is long overdue. We really think that weather can inspire the imagination."
