No matter how many weather Apps I have tried over the years, I always end up going back to the iPhone’s default weather app, as it does give the information you are generally seeking in one quick look. Sure there are times when a little more information may be helpful, but other weather Apps that include this data often do so with too much congestion on the screen, or the apps navigation is overly complex, burying the key data points. Some new minimalist weather apps like Haze, are visually nice, but really lack enough information to get a handle on what to expect. That being said, Yahoo has nailed it. A visually appealing app with all the info you need and a very intuitive swipe up or sideways navigation gets you everything with ease. Nicely done Yahoo. Nicely done. You have earned a place firmly on my coveted first screen.
And for what it is worth, that is two for Yahoo to make page one, as Sportacular is also a simple worthy sports App.

Here is what I am expecting and excited to see as of now: Continue reading
