Diipa, Sanskrit for "Island", is a weather app that allows the user to scroll forward in time to see visual representation of the upcoming forecast. At a glance the user can see gauge the tide, moon phase, cloud covered wind. Diipa is currently in production.
The weather is a direct contributor to mood and emotion.
We all know what is meant by "There ain't no sunshine when she's gone". Yet most weather apps ignore this emotion + weather duality and will settle for a minimal, emotionless aesthetic. I wanted to create an app where the sunny days are happy, rainy days are cozy and Thunderstorms are jarring. The ability to slide through time and the realtime visual representation of this adds an extra level of engagement with the user.
