Do I like Forecast.io?

Published on

I’m trying to decide if I like Forecast.IO. One thing is certain, there are a few pieces which I don’t like about it. This is the greatest of them:

Forecast.IO in mobile Safari prompts me to add it to the homescreen

Detecting that someone is using Mobile Safari and then not letting them use a web application without “Installing” it, is obnoxious.

Forecast.IO in Chrome for iPhone prompts me to add it to the homescreen

Detecting that someone is using iOS and then not letting them use a web application without using a feature that isn’t available in their browser is worse.
