@repkin - I'm curious... I use the standard Apple weather app and don't ever feel like it is not enough... What pained you about weather apps these days that compelled you to create this? What makes this stand out from others in this market?

@bentossell The idea struck me 9 years ago when I was working at Borland corp as a java programmer. There was no Apple weather app. There was no even iPhone yet :) YoWindow has three distinct features from all the weather apps on the market. 1. You can scroll the time to the future. 2. The landscapes. They are not static pictures. Nor pre-shoot videos. They are small apps. They look and feel exactly as the weather outside. Under any weather, time and even season (we have 5 seasonal settings for each landscape). And the picture changes along with the nature at the given location. There are no landscapes in iOS Weather. The landscapes in Yahoo Weather are static. 3. Simple UI. Weather apps tend to show off everything they know about. Most people (80%) want to know the temperature and whether is it going to rain. Now, today and several days ahead. We put this information in front of the user. Everything else is optional.

So if it's raining out of the window - I have to look at rain on my screen too? :)

@alangarrec @bentossell No need to look. You will hear the rain. In stereo )

Guys, I wonder, what would you change in YoWindow? The idea behind YoWindow was simple. Who needs a weather app? Just look out the window! It is so natural and precise. We pumped up the window - added weather forecast. Added beautiful animated landscapes. And the simple, but useful UI. Turned out people love the idea. YoWindow is doing great - 1.5 million downloads overall with 4.6 rate. There's no other weather app that presents the weather this way. We want to scale up. I'm looking for investor connections. I'll be visiting @4YFN_MWC at Barcelona this February. Look for a guy in umbrella hat ) Niv, thank you so much for hunting us down.

This is not your typical weather app. The graphics make it feel like you're in a video came, but you're scrolling through the weather. It's very intuitive because you end up thinking about the weather in the same way you would without a weather app: looking out the window and seeing if it's sunny. Except that it kind of feels like your scrolling through the future 😀 YoWindow Weather is available on iOS, Android, Windows/Mac, and there's a Chrome Extension. The maker @repkin will be here to answer questions so ask away!

@repkin Looks really cool! Can I use my own graphics or photo as YoWindow background? :)

@flighthack You can! On Windows and Mac if you may cut out the sky from the photo. We will replace the original sky with live sky with real cloud coverage, Sun and Moon. The result picture looks fantastic under ANY weather conditions. Look at this:

@flighthack the work is in progress. We are focused on making a super simple technique to remove the sky from any photo. Going to be available by the new year.
