We’re quite lucky at Ausdroid, often being privy to information before public release and treated to an early look at apps and for the last couple of months we’ve been doing just that on Shifty Jelly’s updated version of Pocket Weather. The update brings a massive visual change and the app comes into line with the Material Design update (which the guys won an award for at I/O last year with Pocketcasts) as well as some functionality changes.
A short time ago I saw this tweet from one of the team at Shifty Jelly

It’s happening and that means we’re allowed to show you whats coming really soon!
As you can see from the screenshots, the visuals are very different but still maintains the feel that the app has had since their last major update. The user view is much simpler, cleaner and easier to read than the previous version of Pocket Weather and in addition to this, there’s a really sweet dark theme that can be enabled after dark or all the time, the choice is yours.
If you’re a Pocket Weather user, head to the Play Store and check out if the update is ready for your device.
Let us (and Shifty Jelly) know what you like about the look of the new version of Pocket Weather
