Generally, you need clarifications/assumptions to this type of question


1. What's the usage of app? Just show today's weather of current place? Place can be changed? Weather of week? etc...
2. Who will be users? Consumers, Companies??
3. It should use some API to fetch weather info, what is the maximum access limit to query at the same time?
4. What happens if it fails to fetch weather info?
5. What's the target devices? iPad as well?
6. What could be the target iOS versions??
7. How can we install the app? From Apple store or else??
8. Is it more like background app to show weather as gadget? Or do we need to invoke app?

Then you can classify the test following software test viewpoint e.g.) Functional/Non-Functional test and show great test matrix. .
