I wanted to try out Swift & SpriteKit, but as I had no clue what to build, I started building a weather app :)
What it does
Originally, I thought the most awesome feature would be the cool & localized graphics I created for many countries & big cities, but it seems like I was wrong. A few days ago I received an email from a blind guy, who said that he absolutely loves the app.. I was like "What the h***?".. But it turns out that I actually created one of thhe most beautiful, but still most accessible weather apps out there, as I've developed a features, wich let's Siri speak out a 10 day weather forecast :)
How I built it
Swift <3 + SpriteKit
Challenges I ran into
Weatherdata.. is super expensive or inaccurate.. UNTIL i found the solution.. darksky.net (super awesome weather API! at a fair price)
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
Featuring on Producthunt :) YEAH! TOP 10 weather apps in the #USA!
What I learned
Even stupid ideas can turn into something amazing & useful.
What's next for WeatherWheel
More countries :) more features :) more improvements :) more more more everything
