Concept

The topic I worked with to develop this app was weather. When I was in the planning stages I wanted to create a basic refreshed look of weather apps that were already available. After discussion I felt that wasn't the best approach. I changed the target audience to be people like me, those that can't rely on numbers or writing to tell them information. So I wanted to create a weather app that shows rather than tells. 

Luft (german for Air) would use animation and colour to represent weather changes throughout the day.


Features

I wanted to compliment written temperature indications with a visual method of explaining the weather. You could have the option of using written information along with visuals or only visual to tell you the weather.

Colour
Indicates temperature changes:

  • Warm Weather in Reds

  • Cool Weather in Blues

Temperature and Time

  • Shown in the upper left corner of screen

  • Location in the bottom center

  • Shown in either Celsius or Fahrenheit which can be changed in settings

Animation
Indicates condition changes:

  • Snow, Rain, clouds, etc would be shown in the animated scene

  • Sun and moon positions would change in the scene based on time of day

  • How dark or light the animation appears gradually changes over the course of the day
