    Yahoo Weather's review

    Published: 2013-11-26, by .

    Yahoo! Weather is the official Yahoo! weather forecast app for Android

    • User-friendly interface
    • Comprehensible
    • Multiple locations
    • Runs smoothly
    • Nothing special

    "Sunny today? Yahoooo!"

    Since weather conditions determine our daily activity and, specially, our weekend plans, it's good having plenty of info about it. However, there are some apps out there that provide too much info or show it in a chaotic way, unintelligible for the average user. Yahoo! Weather is one of the most balanced app regarding amount of info and user-friendly interface. Let's see why.

    First off, it displays a homescreen with the basic info: location, time, weather condition (mostly cloudy, sunny, raining, etc), current temperature and maximum/minimum temperature expected. The background of this homescreen is made up by public photos taken from Flickr related to your location. You can add as many locations as you want and switch between them just by swiping right.

    In order to access detailed info in your current location, you just need to scroll down to see: weekly forecast, weather details, map, precipitation chance, wind & pressure and sun & moon (dusk and dawn time). All the info displayed is perfectly understandable for any user: there aren't technical concepts and all concepts are backed by icons to catch the idea at a glance.

    Interface is, as I said, its strongest point. All the info is displayed on a glass layout which background is those photos taken from Flickr I mentioned above. It as smooth as silk. Must-have.

    I've only had this app downloaded for no more than 5 minutes and I already LOVE it. Before I downloaded Yahoo Weather I was relying on WeatherBug. I decided to find a new weather app this evening when WeatherBug was showing 85°, sunny and partial clouds. Once I downloaded Yahoo Weather I not only learned what I already knew, that it was 95° with rain but what I didn't know from WeatherBug is that it is calling for thunderstorms until 1am. Plus there are warnings for flash floods. WeatherBug is still showing clear skies for this evening. I am in a wheelchair and I prefer not to go out in the rain if I don't have to. My wheelchair goes in the back of my trunk and wheelchair wheels plus wet asphalt equals dirty wet hands. Living in Arizona we have monsoons this time of year and it's just really nice to know when that weather is going to change.
