There are many great weather apps out there but nothing comes close to the coolness factor of Tom Scott’s weather app which was made for Star Wars fan. You see, apart from telling you the weather in a particular place which you enter on the site’s search box, the site also gives you different backgrounds and commentaries mentioning the different locations in the Star Wars universe.
So depending on which city you’re from, you will get weather commentaries such as:
“Oh, 9C Fair. It’s like Naboo out there. Temperate, dry and fairly pleasant.”
“Hmm, 9C, Partly Cloudy?, It’s like Endor out there. Temperate but grey and cloudy”
Well, of course aside from the commentaries, the weather report is actually pretty accurate because the site fetches weather data from Yahoo Weather.
And while you’re at it, you might want to check out Tom Scott’s other creation which includes – Two Drums and Cymbal Fall Off a Cliff, The Corruscant Juggling Club and more. They are pretty cool stuff and makes you think that this guy is really enjoying his work.
