Really nice and best-designed apps, but I think few more are there.

It's great. Except for the fact that, at least here in Serbia, almost every city is named wrong, ranging from spelling errors to whole words being replaced. I don't know which maps it uses, but it's horrific. Other than that, it's awesome.

Thanks to Google's API which also makes many programs look beautiful.

timely & yahoo weather do look amazing, but it's just eye candy, there are better featured products out there.

Okay, this is just stupid... Yahoo Weather has an extremely bad design (aside from the homescreen) for an Android app... For those wondering why, read this article:http://www.androiduipatterns.com/2013/08/yahoo-weather-app-beautiful-design.html

Meh, I don't use any of these apps.

My vote goes to Tweetcaster for tablets.

Yahoo Weather is a great app with pretty accurate temperatures/forecasts, but for some reason about a month ago I've started noticing pictures of places in the world that don't match where you live (especially the small towns), they should have left the generic ones. But if you live in a well known city like New York City, San Francisco, Dallas etc. you'll see photos of your city just fine.
