Promising app, but with a glitch...
Unlike most weather apps, Skye does something rather awesome and unique: it gives users actual crowd-sourced images of what the weather is like in the locations you select. It's so simple and obvious, I'll be surprised if every other weather app doesn't steal it for their next application release. It's easy to upload a photo and even easier to flip through multiple available images for a location to give you a quick composite view of what the weather's actually like there. Now for the stuff I would change, and change quickly lest Skye go the way of many almost useful apps: 1) photo upload bug on iPhone 4GS. Sometimes when I try to upload a picture, the app freezes while the loading wheel spins and spins forever. piping out to the iPhone icons interface and back into the app results in a frozen Skye front page that never changes. This made me doubly angry and want to delete the app. 2) the front page animation either loads too slowly or is purposely meant to showcase the Skye logo. Fail. I'd rather get to my weather data more quickly rather than see the pretty logo animation. 3) the ads. I don't want to see them. Maybe that's the price of using the app. I don't know. I just don't like them and they look ugly as well. Overall, it's a clever, simple app that I hope to see quickly improved. It's only a matter of time before Apple or weather channel steals the idea.

Two thumbs up!
Awesome app way better than the Apple weather app. I like how you can include your own photos. My new go to app!

Very Cool!
The app loads up pretty quickly and is accurate. Very clean design. I like the fact that you can find the weather for several locations fairly quickly.

A Picture is worth a 1,000 words
Only took me a few minutes to figure out everything and upload an image of my own after I registered. Love this app. Wish they had this back in the day when I was surfing to see the real wave conditions. Besides what does "partly cloudy mean"? I want to see it! Great job.
