Yahoo Weather For iOS

18 April 2013

Yahoo Weather, App Store:

The forecast is beautiful.

See the weather like never before – only Yahoo! Weather combines stunning photos with the most accurate forecasts.

I thought it was interesting the maps used in the app are standard Apple MapKit controls; Yahoo decided not to use its own mapping service.

On a different note, aesthetically there is a 1 pixel purple line at the top of the app that really bugs me. I don’t have a clue why it’s there. The app icon is similarly awful, and doesn’t reflect the general prettiness of the app itself.1

1 I don’t think the UI is stunning (as some have postulated), but it is decent — a lot better than what I expected Yahoo to create.
