It might be the changing of the seasons and the yearning for warmer days and longer nights but why is it that we always end up talking about the weather? For most of us, it dictates a lot of our day. Aren't you constantly checking the weather on your phone or is it just me?
Now, there's definitely a glut of weather apps available and most of them you can write off but Yahoo! is releasing its own weather app today and it's one of, if not, the prettiest weather apps around. With the help of photographers and the Flickr community, Yahoo! Weather screams simplicity. Just look at it.
By pulling in your exact coordinates, the time of day and general weather conditions, Yahoo! Weather selects and displays an appropriate image taken in your town to match the forecast. So at night, you'll see night time shots and so on. And by scrolling up, you have access to an hourly forecast, five day forecast, the ever important "feels like," wind and pressure, chance of precipitation and it'll even tell you when the sun is rising and setting. There's also a map mode that offers a wider area of coverage in case you're traveling.
And by turning your iPhone horizontal, the app goes into full display mode with just images from your city of choice.
Yahoo! Weather will be available starting today for iPhone (at some point). [Yahoo]
Update: The app is now live.
