    Justin AnyanwuI love tech. I believe in humanity.
    Pros: 

    Cheerful design

    Cons: 

    Needs more features and contextual UI events.

    Love the concept. Hope to see more features added to it.

    I'd go nuts if the environment was a render of a popular city in my location.

    Justin Anyanwu has used this product for one day.

Hello all! I’m happy to release Tinyclouds to the world. Tinyclouds is a weather app with a unique and fun style. The idea for Tinyclouds came from a longtime love of low poly/pixel/iso art. I started playing with the idea over a year ago. I have a wife and four kids so I was only able to work on it here and there. Turns out raising kids and building a product is a slow, frustrating journey. I wouldn’t change it for anything! 😍👱‍♀️👧👦👧👶 Tinyclouds is pretty basic right now, but I think there are a lot of interesting future paths it could take. Thank you!

@mikel_io This is really cool! I'm also a huge fan of low polly/pixel art so you've definitely got my attention with the art style. If time wasn't a factor, what kind of features would you like to add in the future?

@jakecrump Hi Jake! One of the big features I would like to add is different scenes. Right now it shows one simple generic town. I think you could have scenes of different types of places, specific cities, funny situations, maybe some current events, etc... I think a weather app like this needs to be always changing and put a smile on your face each day. That's my vision! I also would like to improve the weather details. Radar, alerts, details, etc... I believe you can have a weather app that is fun and interesting, while still accurate and useful. Thanks for the question Jake!

@mikel_io Great work Mikel. It's always nice to hear about entrepreneurs with a family who still create time to realize their dreams. I like the way you have used the SimCity style graphics which gives people a sense of nostalgia and familiarity. Flappy Bird was a big hit and that used similar design. My feedback would be that when the clouds move over, they block the view but I suppose that you are trying to show the weather. Have you considered changing the angle so you are looking up from the ground to see the clouds?

@davidjlowe Thanks David! I will have to give the "view being blocked" problem some thought, thanks for the feedback! Yep, I spent half of my childhood staring at Sim City (Sim City 2000 for me 😁)

This is great, congrats on a fresh new take on what a weather app looks like! Mapbox + Unity have some really cool data that could potentially let you render cities in a semi-accurate way depending on how the current low poly art is rendered!

@stephensilber Interesting, I'll have to take a look!
