Yahoo Debuts New Weather and Mail Apps

Yahoo today unwrapped a brand new weather application for the Apple iPhone. Yahoo already provides the data used by Apple for the native iPhone weather application, but this new app is separate. Yahoo Weather for iPhone offers a richer user experience thanks to location-specific photography and more granular data about current weather conditions and forecasts. It is free to download from the iTunes App Store. Yahoo also debuted a new version of its Yahoo Mail application for Android tablets and the iPad. The new Yahoo Mail app for tablets carries over many of the design elements brought to the iPhone and Android smartphone versions of Yahoo Mail that were released late last year. The tablet email apps focus on the reading experience by emphasizing the text and content of the message rather than the surrounding app. Yahoo Mail is free to download from the iTunes App Store and Google Play Store.

Great App

Much, MUCH better than the built-in weather app. It takes the city pictures from Flickr, based on the location data in the photo, and the photos they choose are great quality too.

Lots more weather information than the standard app, this one includes wind speed + direction, a miniature radar map you can view, barometer, humidity, PoP, sunrise/sunset, moon phases.

GREAT weather app!
Yahoo is clearly rethinking all of their services to better compete.
Unfortunately they didn't have one for my city, so they used some random picture lol.
