Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Modern and minimalistic design
Yahoo Weather features beautiful photos from Flickr for every weather condition and dynamic animations on a continuous page of information. The UI is super easy to use and appealing to look at.
Pro Free and no advertisements
Pro Design that doesn't overwhelm
One of the advantages of Yahoo Weather is that the design is not so loaded with information when you open it that it is overwhelming. If your just interested in if it is going to rain today Yahoo will provide you that at a glance but it still provides all the details when you scroll down.
Pro Decent static map options: heat, wind, and US radar
Each of the maps are quick to load and very fluid to scroll and zoom with. But the radar map options are few compared to other weather applications and they are not live.
Pro Uses beautiful photos from Flickr for a fresh look all the time
Yahoo Weather uses photos of locations in weather conditions from actual Flickr users. This inclusion makes Yahoo Weather as great to look at as it is to use. If you want more information about the photo the author's Flickr name is in the bottom right corner.
Pro Effortless to switch locations
Unlike other applications that force you to enter a menu to check on another location, in Yahoo Weather all you have to do is swipe left or right through your favorite locations.
Con No minute-by-minute forecasts
Yahoo Weather only offers hour by hour forecasts with no minute-by-minute forecasts.
Con Too focused on design instead of data for some people
Yahoo Weather displays less information at a glance and less information as a whole than other apps. Radar options and precipitation options are particularly scarce. Although for some people a minimalistic design is worth it.
