Yahoo’s beautiful weather app has arrived on the iPad, and it’s a lovely breath of fresh air on the iPad screen. As of yesterday, Yahoo Weather is now a universal app that runs on both the iPad and iPhone.
I’ve seen a number of handsome weather apps for the iPad, including long-time favorite Clear Day, but Yahoo Weather is a perfect storm of a great, clean UI and spectacular photos. The photos are pulled from Flickr and used as the full-screen background in the app.
The app also offers a wealth of good weather information. On the main page you get a quick overview of current conditions and today’s forecast by sections of the day.
With a quick swipe up you get an hourly forecast and as you scroll down there’s a 10 day forecast, information on humidity, visibility, precipitation chances, a weather maps and more details.
A fun element of the app is that it’s easy to share your weather, and the beautiful weather background photos, with just a couple of taps.
My hometown of Austin is looking just gorgeous in Yahoo Weather, so it would be impossible not to have Yahoo Weather on my iPad’s first home screen.
Here’s an App Store link for Yahoo Weather; it’s a free app.
