After launching a beautiful Weather App on iOS in April, Yahoo has now rolled out the app on Android platform. The new Android Weather app sports a complete redesign and with a number of enhancements. The revamped app includes Flickr photos of locations, based on the current weather and time of day, and boasts more data than ever before. There’s also a new widget for your lock screen, letting you quickly check the day’s conditions without having to unlock your device.
Yahoo’s director of mobile products, Marco Wirasinghe, wrote in a Tumblr post,
“Checking the weather should be beautiful, intuitive and personalized, no matter where you are or what device you’re using. We’re hopeful you’ll love the seeing the weather with a new design and lots of data enhancements.”
The app also shows hour-by-hour weather information along with 10 day forecasts. It also allows you to check wind speeds, sunrise and sunset time, precipitation, UV patterns and an interactive Map. Moreover, the app also gets the ability to save locations for later reference. The Yahoo! Weather Android app can also send weather alerts and sync notifications from a Yahoo! account.
Yahoo has been ramping up its mobile presence for past few months. In July Marissa Mayer announced that Yahoo now sees 340 million monthly mobile users.
