Editors' Review

YoWindow is a weather application for your PC that manages to deliver weather data in a unique and fun interface. With its ability to save multiple locations, it makes it incredibly simple to quickly pull up weather reports from anywhere in the world.

The program is about as simple as your typical weather-reporting Web site. Enter a city anywhere in the world, and watch as YoWindow's background image changes to reflect the current weather conditions there. In addition, YoWindow supplies you with all of the hard facts, including high and low for the day, Wind, Pressure, and Humidity. There's a time graph along the top of YoWindow where you can click through to see weather forecasts for different times throughout the day. And of course, you can also shuttle through different dates as well. There's even a calendar component that you can click through.

While previous versions of YoWindow offered only a single landscape background, this newest version offers five, including Village, Seaside, Airport, Oriental, and Sky. In addition, the program lets you turn any of your personal photos into a landscape, just for kicks. Whichever background you choose, YoWindow's visualizations always show up, indicating rain, clouds, even night and day. This makes it easy to get a weather reading by quickly glancing at your screen.

Overall, YoWindow is a surprisingly useful app that also looks good. With its several landscapes and nifty weather visualizations, it provides a unique way of checking the forecast. You can use the program in its own window on your desktop, or set it as your default Windows screensaver. Either way, the information is all there, ready to access in just a few clicks.

YoWindow is free to try, but the trial version limits users to a three-day forecast and fewer landscapes to play with. When installing, make sure to watch out for the bundled toolbar, and opt in or out according to your preference.
