Are you on the lookout for an alternative weather app for your iPhone? Yes, a number of capable and beautiful third party apps exist for this kind of task. However, Yahoo! just recently entered the game with their all-new weather app. With the aid of various photographers and the Flickr community, Yahoo! Weather screams simplicity and stunning beauty at the same time.
The app works by pulling the exact coordinates of your mobile phone, the time of the day and the general weather condition in the area. Yahoo! Weather then selects and displays an appropriate image taken in your town to match the forecast. Scrolling upwards allows you to see the hourly weather forecast, five-day forecast, “feels like” weather, wind and pressure, chance of precipitation, etc. A map mode is also available to provide a wider area of coverage. Turning your iPhone horizontally lets the app into full display mode.
From the app’s App Store page:
