Solar, a new iPhone and iPad app by development house Hollr, offers an interactive way to get your daily weather forecast. Solar offers the same features as your standard weather app, but uses bold Rothko-esque colourscapes to illustrate each forecast.

The current weather is represented with a colour at the top of the screen, graduating down to another shade indicating the temperature at the bottom. Dragging your finger down the length of the screen will allow the hues to morph and change, illustrating weather patterns for the next 24 hours. The app is a deliberately pared back and sensorial way to look at the weather, with a simple, fun and visually arresting user interface.
