Download the Beautiful New Weather App from Yahoo along With Their New Email App for iPad
As you might have noticed, there’s a lot going on over at Yahoo! these days. One of their priorities definitely seems to be servicing the iOS platforming, and to that end they just released Yahoo! Weather… You guessed it—it’s a weather app , but the twist is that it features user-submitted photography specific to the region you’re viewing.
Judging from the screenshots we’re seeing, Yahoo! Weather amounts to a simple, but pleasant app that should effectively boost Yahoo!’s mobile presence. By providing the usual weather data against user-submitted background images, the app provides an easy way to “get lost scrolling through photos reflecting the current weather in places that matter to you.” The app works through integration with Flickr Groups, allowing professionals or amateurs alike to take part in providing not just temperature figures and cloud sketches—but actual images of what’s going on outside in the area you’re viewing.
A few minutes with the app and we think you’ll agree that Yahoo! Has brought a real contender into the weather fight in the App Store. Along with familiar, accurate imagery of the current weather, you get a clean interface that will meet all your basic weather needs in a pretty slick way… What we’re trying to say is, don’t brush this off just cause you’re attached to another weather app—it really is worth a look.
Along with introducing Yahoo! Weather, Yahoo! Also brought their newly redesigned Mail app to the iPad . So, you can now enjoy the faster, simpler Mail experience on your tablet and not just your phone.
Some days I don’t know what to think about Yahoo!, but if they turn out something like Yahoo! Weather once in awhile, we’re bound to keep paying attention.
