Forecast.io

Ever since it launched a few weeks ago, I’ve developed a mild obsession with Forecast.io. Quite simply, it is the most impressive standards-based web app I’ve ever seen. Whether you judge it on its design, data, or performance, it does everything exceedingly well.

The only deal is, there are some intriguing mysteries about how all of the magic is done. I’d love to be able to design my own web app like this, especially one that can be installed on my iPhone’s home screen and have its own app icon appear in the app drawer during runtime (instead of Safari’s icon). Just like a native iOS app.

Until I understand this and more, I’ll have to satisfy my curiosity about Forecast.io by continuing to Google it daily and compile the articles I find here.

Happy reading, and enjoy Forecast.io.
