Wonderful design, but that's it I love the user interface. It's very elegant, unique and fun to use. The splash screen takes a few seconds to load, which is a big inconvenience when quickly checking weather. The app also randomly crashes when opened. This app could really succeed as a live wallpaper, not just a standalone app. Android is all about glanceable info! Unfortunately development on this app is dead--no updates in over 6 months...
well done Finally somebody(s) have cracked it. I ran this in conjunction with 3 others. Hands down this is by far the best and I've tried a few. Its accurate to within a degree of yhe temp and bang on eith the locations. My only (minor gripe) no widget. You get 6 stars for that. Tty it people, it wont disappoint you.
Lacking customization That is a great app for those who seek only design. Android OS means customization to me, without no widget and lock screen, this app is a loss of time. Who would open a real app when you can create a widget or lock screen with other applications? Give it a try, see stunning simplicity, but bothering tapping some more to open Solar is a pain. Asking Google Now "What is the weather?" is much easier.
Sensors.qcom battery drain Gorgeous app, a shame about the terrible battery use. Since installation, a less than 20 seconds usage of the app generates a 5% total battery use and uses the sensors.qcom API, which amounts to 25% battery use for the rest of the day. When not opening Solar for a day, the battery drain situation does not occur. Battery drain problem stops altogether upon uninstall. Google Nexus 4 Android 4.4.2
Good App but not bug-free After the latest update, app keeps on crashing when attempting to add new locations. Uninstalled and reinstalled, yet the problem persists. Using an HTC One(M7).
Simply beautiful No fancy gimmicks.. It won't tell you if you need an umbrella.. It won't reschedule your meetings.. But what it will do, is show you the weather in the most gorgeous manner. And sometimes that's all you need really!
