Cirrus One weather app web design

In the web design industry side projects are a common sight. They allow web designers to work on something outside of normal paid client web design work and focus on something unique and personally interesting. I’ve had an idea for a weather app buzzing round for a few years now An attempt to create it as a iOS app didn’t work out so I decided to build it as a web app side project.

You can also change the icon colours to suite the background which you can also change and blur to really customise your weather.

New features coming soon

Cirrus One is only available for mobiles currently and works as a web app that you save to your home screen. We have a huge roadmap of features that we’ll be adding including uploading your own photos as background images, more weather data, better hourly data, tablet and desktop versions and weather alerts that you can set up to be notified if weather changes at a specific location.

Web technologies have changed a lot since I first looked at a native app and web apps are becoming more and more common now. Not all projects warrant the expense and development times of a native app so think carefully about your users and
