The Galaxy S 4 ships with more sensors than it knows what to do with. As we described in our full review, the new Samsung superphone boasts a thermometer, barometer, and even a hygrometer beneath its glazed polycarbonate shell, making the device almost as much tricorder as communicator.
But sensors are only as good as the apps that can make use of their data. Realizing this, one talented developer has emerged to provide a software companion for Samsung’s sensors, an app to give voice to these less-celebrated Galaxy S4 features.
That app is called Weather Station. And while it won’t win any awards for beauty or versatility, it does its niche job very well, standing out as one of the first apps to take advantage of the unique triple-threat represented by the Galaxy S 4′s sensor package. You don’t need to be a meteorologist to appreciate that, so join us for a quick look at Weather Station.
