Fredrik talks to Kai Dombrowski and Malin Sundberg of Triple glazed studiosabout their new weather app Mercury weather.

Malin and Kai tell us how the app went from idea to release in a few short months, and why they will try not to pick the summer months the next time they start a new app. What was the release like, what was it like to be mentioned by John Gruber, and how did that change the bug reports?

Do people care about weather apps? Yes, they very much do! We also talk weater API:s, easter eggs, and a whole lot more.

We wrap up with some chat about Fredrik’s recent (lack of) Mac devlopment, the right phone size, and this year’s Iphones in general.
