App Icon Research Barometer
A barometer is an instrument used in meteorology to measure atmospheric pressure which can can forecast short-term changes in the weather. Numerous measurements of air pressure are used within surface weather analysis to help find surface troughs, high pressure systems, and frontal boundaries. For most of the apps that I researched they featured the sun, a cloud and rain which are the main weather formations that are measurable. Changing the colour of the sun, cloud and rain in the icon cannot be changed, so the only alternative is to have all the app icons featuring a similar background or pattern wich the exact same layout on each for the customer to link them together. Most of these apps feature a clock type display telling the audience the weather conditions; if I was to design the actual page for this app i would make sure that the clock face was used with my own images of the weather patterns, but I would also use the classic style of the older barometers because I believe they look more aesthetically pleasing.
