Sponsor: Check the Weather

My thanks to Cross Forward Consulting for sponsoring MacStories this week.

Check the Weather is a fast, accurate, and beautiful weather app for iOS. It’s universal, so with a single download you’ll get native iPhone and iPad versions. Check the Weather is powered by accurate and powerful weather data (including hazardous weather alerts from the National Weather Service and Dark Sky integration in the U.S.); the app is localized in seven different languages and presents all the basic weather data in a simple and elegant interface.

I use Check the Weather on my iPad on a daily basis because it provides a beautiful overview of my day (I use the app with the Avenir Next font), as well as upcoming days with good-looking weather icons and high/low temperature values.
