Socket Weather


Inspired by Shifty Jelly’s retired Pocket Weather, Socket Weather makes use of a completely undocumented API from Australia’s Bureau of Meteorology. It’s the second app I’ve designed and built in my spare time, and exists chiefly because I wanted a simple weather app for myself.

From the beginning the app has been open source. I hope some of the code and ideas might give inspiration to other Android developers.

The app is currently live on Google Play.
