Can Doge Weather Become Your Main iOS Weather App?

A few months ago, a friend turned me on to Doge Weather, a weather site that feature’s everyone’s favorite (well, maybe second favorite) dog meme. But now you can get the Same Great Weather Forecast on your iPhone with the Doge Weather app.



Much like the Web app, the Doge Weather app for iOS shows the current weather conditions and temperature for your current location, complete with descriptions like, “omg brisk,” “so clouds,” and “such cold.” Doge even changes according to the weather conditions: It may appear on a cloud if it’s overcast, or it might don sunglasses on a sunny day.

You can tell that whoever made Doge Weather  doesn’t live in a snowy part of the world since the app considers temperatures in the low 50s as “cold.” How very… Californian.

The app lets you toggle between Celsius and Fahrenheit, but it lacks a bunch of features that you’ll find in more traditional weather apps. You won’t find an extended forecast here, and you can’t add multiple locations. Such bummer. Many sad.

Still, it’s Doge! And weather! and Doge weather! Who doesn’t like that combination? That’s what I thought. Doge Weather costs 99 cents and requires iOS 7 or later.
