Stephen Hackett Reviews Check the Weather

Turns out, Stephen really likes the app:

All in all, David Smith did a great job building this app, and it’s enjoyed a place on my homescreen for some time. If you like weather and well-designed apps, it’s well-worth the 99¢.

(I don’t know how kosher it is to give away the ending, but whatever.)

Check the Weather has been on my iPhone’s Home screen ever since its release, and I love it. Stephen’s praise is spot-on, and I love the Dark Sky integration for rain. My only point of disagreement concerns the fonts. While Stephen says most nerds will choose between Futura and Helvetica -- both fine typefaces, no doubt -- I’m in the midst of a torrid love affair with Avenir Next, so that’s what I use. It’s gorgeous, and makes my eyes very happy.
