Yahoo! Weather for iPhone now sprinkled with Flickr photos, looks beautiful
While there's no shortage of weather applications available for iOS, this one is likely to become one of the most visually attractive among them. We're talking about the brand new Yahoo! Weather app, which is bound to hit the Apple App Store before the day is out. 

What makes the new piece of software so beautiful is the dose of visual content pulled from the vast Flickr database – photos are displayed in the app's background in accordance to your current location and weather conditions. Brilliant, isn't it? Moreover, the app takes the time of the day into account, so it shows night photos at night and daytime photos during the day. Flip the phone sideways and the background photo is displayed on the entire screen for your viewing pleasure.

Naturally, the new Yahoo! Weather app provides extensive weather information, including precipitation, wind speed, atmospheric pressure, hourly and 5-day forecasts. Multiple locations can be set as well, in case that's needed, or if you're feeling like checking out what a rainy Sunday morning looks like in Chicago through the eyes of the Flickr community.

Yahoo! Weather should become available to iPhone users any moment now, so keep an eye on the App Store for updates. Unfortunately, whether Android users will ever get to see the app in action isn't yet known.

I usually just stick with the one already on HTC phones. They look very nice already.

Android has tons of much better weather apps which you can highly customise to your taste than this, you can set as lockscreen, widgets and live wallpapers. You don't have to open an app all the time just to see weather like iOS.

Ah that makes sense broski. That's probably why most developers develop games and apps for iOS first.

So they can get users to by there apps while google gives it for free, that's why!

What's up is 69pence on iOS, while its free on Android!

The devs go where the money is!

It just takes longer to adapt to various Android hardware that's why, not because iOS is special or anything.

Recall that Yahoo has a partnership with Microsoft, and this explains why we will never see this app for Android. Anyway, there are tons of wonderful weather apps for Android, even if I must admit that the idea of showing your city's picture is very good, it's something that you can probably live without after those initial days of excitement, when you realize that what you need most just is reliable weather forecasts.
