Yahoo! has launched its new Flickr-powered weather app for Android, following rave reviews for the iOS version.
The weather app matches real-time local forecasts with stunning city-specific photos from Flickr’s archives, giving you a striking full-screen display with all the vital information you need.
A post on the Yahoo! Tumblr explained “Checking the weather should be beautiful, intuitive and personalized, no matter where you are or what device you’re using. That’s why we’re excited to share that today, we’re releasing a brand new Yahoo! Weather Android app for users worldwide.”
Yahoo! Weather not only matches photos to your location, but also to the time of day and the current weather conditions where you are. You can also set up additional cities and locations and see great-looking Flickr images taken from around the world.
As well as looking the part, Yahoo! Weather has been given data enhancements to provide users with a more detailed forecast than ever. By simply scrolling down from the main display, users will be able to find information on everything from precipitation to daylight times.
Yahoo!’s statement continued: “We’ve added more data than ever before, Yahoo! Weather now includes 10-day forecasts, 24 hour forecast, chance of precipitation, wind and pressure, moon phases, UV patterns, sunrise and sunset times, an interactive map and a new widget for your lock screen.”
The update follows Yahoo’s overhaul of its iOS Weather app back in April. The app was recognised by Apple in June – along with 10 others – as a winner of its 2013 Design Awards, which highlight iOS and Mac Apps that “raise the bar in design, technology, and innovation.”
The app is free and available internationally for Android in Google Play. This one comes highly recommended by us, so check it out and if you don’t like it let us know why!
