Review: Yahoo! Weather is a slick, well-designed app

Set home locations and check weather with ease with this well-designed weather app.

Yahoo! Weather is a fast, responsive, and ultimately very fun to use weather app from the online content guru. Designed to be sleek and easy to use, Yahoo! Weather presents all of the information you need in compact, pull-out menus that can be hidden for quick reference or pulled out for reams of information about the weather in any number of cities.

Yahoo! Weather opens with a static tile for your current location with the temperature and current conditions. If you slide the screen with your finger, however, you can reveal the forecast, details about the weather, wind speed, a radar map, precipitation estimates, wind pressure, and even a very illustrative animation of the sun and moon position. The style is sleek and minimalist and it looks fantastic on the iPhone's screen. Better yet, you can slide between different locations and they all load instantly, showing weather in any number of cities in one compact interface. Yahoo!'s Weather apps hides the unnecessary information, doesn't overload you with settings, but makes it all available when needed, and the result is a very easy-to-use app.

If you are looking for a replacement for your clunky, buggy weather app, or would like something new that is easy and fun to use, check out Yahoo! Weather. It looks great, offers accurate, up-to-date information, and is a pleasure to use on your iPhone's touch screen.
