So yes, we’ve seen our share of weather apps on the iPhone. They’re all apps that display either too little information or are complex loads of information that only a meteorologist would appreciate. But not Solar. This iPhone weather app will incorporate all the necessary weather information you might be actually interested in knowing into one attractive and minimal design. It doesn’t try to hide information under some sort of options. Rather, through a sleek and useful UI, you have more information that you would expect after opening the app.

Solar will display by default the current time, the local temperature and location and a description of the current weather conditions. All this on a sifting abstract background that intuitively uses colors and animations to visually give you an idea of the outside weather and time [...]

Bet You’re Gonna Want This App

On a small note, before I start the review, I’m not a gambler, I’ve rarely bet on something in my life. So if you’re anything like me, you’re bound to pass up Vegas Sports without looking back. And that’s ok, because Vegas Sports for the iPhone is aimed at serious sports gamblers. It is primarily an app that wants to instill organization into the gambler’s life.

Let’s get on thing straight. Vegas Sports doesn’t tell you how to bet, it doesn’t have any sort of list with football matches you can place bets on from the app. Instead, Vegas Sports provides you with a sort of bet-book, where you can save all the bets you place on various games and sports events. All you have to do is tell the app what the game is, how much you’ve bet and then, after the event, see if you’ve won or lost.

Vegas Sports will keep a detailed history of your [...]

You’re probably wondering why reviewing another iPhone app that lets you check the weather? I mean, there’s already a plethora of similar apps, most free, that cram so much info in the home screen it’s mind blowing. If you take out the ones that are purely unattractive, minus apps that simply don’t provide accurate information, well, you’re not left with a lot of options for the iPhone. Enter Outside, a fresh new weather app that effectively combines a creative design with the accuracy of weather reporting. You’ll find yourself checking the weather status more than once per day, albeit just to see the great graphics.

I’m going to give you the low-down on this one. Outside will do nothing more that different from any other iPhone weather app. It tells you what the current temperature is. It tells you what the weather is [...]
