For my weather app design idea, I wanted to make it a bit more detailed than your averave weather app. My weather app will use the geolocator function via the GPS on a users device to establish their percise location. The app will then display the weather conditions for that exact location. I wanted to also include some more technical information with my app such as wind spead and direction and use weather station symbology instead of the typical weather iconography. I image a sailor or a pilot using this weather app. What do you think?

I've added a few new ideas to my app. I've added a toggle that allows the user to view trending weather vs current weather instead of a 3-5 day forecast. I'm thinking the user would sellect the time duration increments that they want to see forecasted. If they sellect 24 hrs and hit the trending weather button once it shows the weatherforecast for 24 hrs, if they thit it again 48 hrs and so on. I have also incorporated the sun up/sun down feature with sun and moon icons.

I'm still thinking about what it is I want to achieve with my app. I want this app to be one that I would use or find usefull, so I've decided to add features that will help the user predict weather trends. I'm going for more of a weather station kind of idea. Now, I just need to figure out how to bring everything together in an experience that makes sense.

After having a look at everyone's projects, I feel inspired to improve the navigation and interation aspect of my project. Thanks.
