There is no lack of weather apps – and web sites – but there is much to be said about weather apps looking good and working excellently. Of the entities who know about weather and dishing up information to users, Yahoo is perhaps one of the oldest and most known, and now, they are making waves with Yahoo Weather on Android.
Released on Google Play last week, Yahoo Weather has been garnering positive comments from users, critics, and even competitors! Even Apple has recognized the awesome design of the app, referring to the iOS version, of course.
So, what’s with the Yahoo Weather app on Android that should convince you to ditch all other apps in the niche?
One look at those images, and there really isn’t much to say about the aesthetics, is there? Even though people have varying tastes when it comes to design, one would be hard pressed to find negative things to remark about the design of Yahoo Weather.
The fact that the stunning photos used for the background change to match the current weather conditions is icing on top of the cake. Heck, even if the weather forecast is not to your liking, the background images just might make up for that!
Additional features of Yahoo Weather on Android include:
- Highly acclaimed design with beautiful photos that match your location, time of day, and current weather condition
- Detailed weather information, including 10-day and 24-hour temperature forecasts
- Interactive radar, satellite, heat, and wind maps
- Severe weather alerts
- Animated sunrise & sunset times and wind & pressure modules
- Humidity sensor, UV index, and chance of precipitation
- New home screen widgets
I think that the combination of eye candy and technical features is a recipe for success in this particular case, and with an average of 4.4 stars on Google Play (more than 100k reviews), Yahoo Weather on Android is bound to hold a good position in its niche.
