iPhone app of the week: Yahoo! weather

Today’s featured iPhone app is one of the best looking apps I have seen in a long time: Yahoo! Weather. It makes the default weather app look drab (at least until iOS7).

The background images regularly change to match the city shown, time of day and weather.

My favorite part is how it balances minimalism with detail by sliding up to show more info. The animated wind turbines that spin faster and the sun projection that shows the suns progress are particularly pleasant. Well done.

  1. Second screenshot – it starts warming up again at 9pm? I question that forecast’s accuracy…

    And what sort of Queenslander wants to know the weather in Sydney? You better hope the locals don’t notice these pics or they will have you deported back down south Alister…


  2. Love the weather app, except the time does not adjust for daylight saving. Is there a way to correct this. The time on my phone is correct, but is not correct on the weather app.
