There is no denying the fact that the App Store is filled with beautifully designed applications for iOS devices, users may feel spoilt for choice at times when searching for a particular type of app. When the Yahoo Weather app was first released, users appreciated and praised its design though initially it only came with support for the iPhone and iPod touch. However most iPhone or iPod touch users might never feel the need to download another weather app considering the fact that one is already natively present on those devices. This isn’t the case with the iPads though, Apple has created a native weather app for its tablets, which is why the updated Yahoo Weather app fills that void perfectly.
iPad users who want to keep track of weather information have plenty of apps available to them, but those who have used Yahoo’s app before are probably going to stick with it on the tablets as well. High resolution images pulled in from Flickr make it much more visually appealing than its rivals, while it provides relevant data such as current temperatures, forecasts for the days ahead and even animations when scrolling said forecasts. It warrants mentioning here that Yahoo Weather has won a design award from Apple at the WWDC 2013. The app now also allows users to share screenshots and forecasts. Yahoo Weather is free for download, it is live now on the App Store.
