UX writing and co-design for the cross-platform mobile weather app.
Published on August 22, 2020
On the Warnings screen, a dynamic icon comprising three exclamation points indicates the severity of upcoming weather phenomena. Each warning is displayed as a card, with a link to the source available.
The Places screen allows people to save their favourite locations and easily switch between them. Overdrop can also detect the user’s location automatically and update it as they move.
The weather radar shows a panel with a scale and controls near the bottom of the screen. The scale – ranging from blue to yellow – helps identify precipitation intensity, and a slider lets people see imagery for the past and future. Because it uses a large range of values, buttons are also provided to move three hours (the smallest increment) either way.
