A beautiful interface immediately opens up and invites the user to begin the setup process. This process only takes a couple of minutes and is easy. A one-touch option allows the user to automatically detect the current location. There is also an option to manually enter the name of a city. Once this option has been set, other locations can be entered into the application and saved in a list of favorites. The user interface includes an intuitive swipe function that allows the user to scroll through a large amount of information with one hand. The forecast can be viewed in hourly or daily increments, and the information is updated on a regular basis.

The program includes three different styles of widgets that give the daily forecast.
