It was the Weather Channel app and it was littered with annoying ads that I couldn’t keep my fat thumb from hitting. I wanted to see the weather, not play a stupid game.
I tolerated it for a long time because I liked the detail it provided once I successfully scrolled to where I wanted to be. But navigating there without a problem was a problem. Will told me repeatedly to use the native iOS weather app. Hey kid, you’re only 11. What do you know? I thought it was too simple.
Finally, instead of tossing my phone out the window I decided to try the native app. It was simple. Sleek. Easy to read. I could swipe to other cities. And no aggravating ads!
So I was happy to sacrifice detailed text about how there was a 40% chance of rain and instead rely on icons. A cloud with raindrops ultimately tells me just as much.
I think we often cloud our minds and lives(pun intended) with too many complications and distractions. It can be much easier.
