While it certainly gets the job done, the default iOS Weather app just feels dated when compared to other third-party weather apps. Fortunately, there is no shortage of options when you want more from your weather apps. Today, Yahoo released a new weather app for the iOS and I must say that it is one of the best looking apps of its kind, thanks to beautiful user interface and gorgeous graphics.
Seemingly out of nowhere, the new Yahoo! Weather app just hit the App Store today. So why is it worth checking out? Yahoo's most recent effort is simply one of the best looking weather apps out there. Expertly designed? Check! Highly intuitive and easy to read? Check! Provides sufficient information without being overly complicated? Check! It is simply a great looking and highly functional weather app. Though you might share a different opinion, for a free weather app, it certainly trumps the default iOS offering.
Depending on your location data, the app will display a beautiful background image (pulled straight from Flickr) with the current weather temperature, weather conditions, high and low temperature, and the weather conditions. At the top of the main interface is the name of the location and the current time. For more detailed information, you can simply tap the displayed temperature and you'll be provided a five-day weather forecast.
While you're on the 5-day forecast sheet, you may scroll down to reveal even more information. The app goes into more details such as humidity, visibility, precipitation, wind & pressure, sun & moon, and even a handy map. Similar to the stock Weather app, the Yahoo! Weather app can store as many locations as you like. With Location Services enabled, the app will automatically grab your current location.
If you are looking for a great alternative to the stock Weather app, you can't go wrong with this new Yahoo! Weather app. Beautiful minimalistic design, very easy to use, and provides enough information without the clutter. It definitely needs to replace the default weather application. And best of all, it won't cost you a dime. Just grab it from the iTunes link provided below.
