Occasionally, I like to feature apps from the Android Market that have managed to capture my robotic heart and share them with you all. Developer OneLouder Apps, has long been known for providing Android users with gorgeous looking, full featured apps and you don’t have to look any further than their insanely popular Twitter app called TweetCaster for proof of this.

Well, they’re at it again, this time with a weather app called 1Weather that provides just as much function, as it does beauty. Simple and stylish (coincidentally, words I’ve been told describe myself), 1Weather provides all the functions you’d expect from a full featured weather app like real-time weather info and 7-day forecasts which all make the cut. But also, you can find tweets from your area to see what people are saying about the weather in your city.

I’m sure that all sounds like pretty standard stuff but the real coup de grace is in 1Weather’s clean and wonderfully animated UI. Rain drops fall from clouds, sun dials spin, maps and radar animate all with a UI suitable for an Ice Cream Sandwich device. To better show you these UI elements, I felt a quick little YouTube video was necessary so sit back and enjoy.

You can find 1Weather for free, right now, in the Android Market. If you get a chance to try it out, let me know how you like it.
