Yahoo just had come out with the beautiful weather app for all the iPhone users that is easy to use and filled with useful information with NO clunky look
Checking the weather forecast is daily routine work for everyone. For most of us, knowing the current weather conditions of the place we have travelled or of our dream destination is the moment of anticipation or could even be a topic of discussion with strangers. aren’t you constantly checking the weather conditions on your cell phone or is it just me?
Ever wonder what could be the current weather of New York City? Is it a cloudy day or sunny day?
Well, Yahoo just released an independently operating weather app for iPhone users. Yahoo! Weather for iPhone, that uses location and specific images to show the current weather conditions you want to know around the world at any given time from your Smartphone.
Yahoo with integration with the Flickr community have brought together the beautiful images to show the current weather conditions and all the detail forecast you want to know about your city.
Surprising things to know about the Yahoo weather app
An California based company, created a new weather app that will provide current temperature and forecasts on top of the slideshows featuring the pictures of landmarks or other local sceneries in the cities that are chosen by the user.
The initial screen will look simple and nice. It will show all the basic things like, the current temperature, the days highs and lows, the local time of that city and a short description of the current weather condition of the city you are searching for.
The pictures are derived from Flickr’s “Project Weather” community on the site powered by Yahoo but will operate separately from iPhone’s built in weather app. The app doesn’t promote Yahoo’s brand in the app panel.
FYI: The Flickr group is already in existence and is open for anyone to submit photos. The photos are selected by staff members so that you won’t wind up with any surprises!
If the app doesn’t find any suitable photo of exact city you are looking for, it will pull up the nearby major landmark and will update the weather forecast you are looking for.
For the places where no photos are submitted, Yahoo shows a generic weather based photo. For example, a cloudy day will be represented by a photo of clouds in the sky.
The images get changed on weather conditions and the time of the day, thus you wont be seeing the same picture late at night that you checked in the morning.
The weather data is presented very neatly, but the amazing thing here is the design of the app itself. it’s like a million impressive thing with the changing of background images when you dive into more details.
The app also features rich in terms of content. A five day weather forecast, a radar showing a high level overview of conditions and the wind pressure information as well as the timings of sunset and sunrise for that city/area is also shown.
The Yahoo Weather App is indeed a very useful and informative app for the geeks who want a quick overlook of the weather conditions of any city around the globe.
Yahoo Weather for iPhone is now available at Apple’s App Store.
