I usually check the weather every day shortly after waking up. My default is to look on my iPhone, but the details there are not usually specific enough. I’ll visit weather.com or accuweather.com for more in-depth reports but the advertisement and video overload is a killer (especially when I haven’t had a cup of coffee yet).

Enter: forecast.io, a beautiful, user-friendly site that gives me exactly what I need. (Click the globe on the homepage to watch it turn into an animated radar!)

We love these kind of fresh takes on common interfaces. It reminds us of Boarding Pass Fail which took a stab at making better airline tickets.

Side note, if you find forecast.io to be overwhelming, might we suggest doineedanumbrella.com?
