Yahoo today announced the availability of a new Yahoo Weather application for the Android platform. The application takes the interesting step of incorporating real images from Flickr that match the current weather conditions, location, and time of day to provide users with a "look out the window" approach to gathering weather information. Yahoo is also asking its customers to participate so that it can add the "local" images of each weather condition for various cities and locales across the country. Yahoo says that it is launching with several major cities already completed, but needs the public's help to fill in the blanks, so to speak in order to complete the picture. The application is free to download and use.

I tried the app and already deleted it.

There is no functionality, just a forecast. No radar, no details, no warnings or alerts. It wasn't any better than the HTC weather widget already on my phone.
