The Yahoo Weather iPad app was recently updated, to Version 1.6.5. It’s a nice little update to a very nice iPad weather app.
The star features of this update are new animated effects for lightning and frost, and updated designs for the new iPhone 6 and 6 Plus.
I’ve seen other iPad weather apps with some great weather animations, but I love how Yahoo Weather combines those with actual stunning photos of my lovely hometown.
If you haven’t already checked this app out on your iPad, then you might want to take a look at my review of Yahoo Weather for iPad.
My thanks to Mobile Cloth for being a site sponsor again this week. I’ve been using them for years now and they’re still the best, fastest cleaning cloths for my iPad and all my other touch-screen devices. I always have at least one with me at work, and usually both sizes.
These really do make a cool stocking stuffer type gift for any of your friends or family with iPads, iPhone, mobile devices, and cameras that need to be kept clean and germ-free.
And there’s an iPad Insight reader discount code to use too:

Lions are certainly among the more powerful animals on earth, and I have to say this iPad painting is almost powerful and striking enough to stand comparison with a lion.
It’s titled ‘The majestic forgiver’ and is the work of Woon Tien David Chong. Here are the artist’s own words on this iPad painting:
“The majestic forgiver.” Original iPad finger painting done on Procreate app. Reference to photo found on Google for the lion.
Isaiah 1:18 “Come now, let us settle the matter,” says the LORD. “Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red as crimson, they shall be like wool.

Apple is promoting the iPad as a holiday gift with the slogan “From one gift come many”. It’s an excellent strapline to highlight how versatile the iPad is, and the accompanying text expands on the idea:
Let them prepare a feast. Choreograph a recital. Organize a toy drive. And take their entire songbook caroling. Give them iPad this holiday and they’ll do more than they ever imagined.
I really like this promo – the slogan is great and the very short body text for the promo mail is perfect. Looking at the image and reading that text lets you immediately think of what your child, your significant other, or a close friend could do with an iPad.
Nicely done Apple.
