Corona Geek #34 – Hanging out with Climate Clock’s Ben Wong
This week, we hung out with Climate Clock’s, Ben Wong. Climate Clock is a beautifully designed iOS weather app that puts the temperature on your home screen. Ben describes himself as a designer who is interested in app development. He has a background in designing websites and used the creation of Climate Clock to expand his skills into app development. Climate Clock was built in 8 weeks while Ben developed his own back end web server, taught himself Lua, and Corona SDK. Climate Clock uses a third party API to provide weather information. The app is very elegant in it’s design and has been written about by Lifehacker, CNET, and TUAW. Climate Clock soared to the #1 weather app spot in the App Store, in a dozen countries, in March of this year.
Be sure to watch/listen to the full hangout for more information and check out Climate Clock.
