Since the Apple stock weather app has not changed much (at all), Yahoo decided to release a stand-alone app, and it is fast, and stunning. I think this is a keeper. You guys should try it out.

You're right, this app is indeed gorgeous! I hope they release something similar for Jelly Bean.

Shame about the icon, but otherwise a fantastic design. (Y)

I like the one from "the Weather Channel". Nothing beats having the weather radar on your iOS.

Just installed it, and loving it. Pretty sleek and minimal graphics and animations. :)

I have tried few: Solar, Weather Neue, The Weather Network, AccuWeather, Living Earth - Clock & Weather, default app, and Yahoo's give me all the info that I need, and is gorgeous. It also give credits to the person who took the photo. You may say that it promotes Yahoo's Flickr, but I think that it is cool for people since it catapults them and their photostream/photographs to the forefront. It really is so far the best weather app that I have used. It is free, and has no ads (so far, let us hope that it continues), too.

Indeed. It is not an universal app. I do not use weather apps on my iPad, so it does not bother me.

Indeed. The icon needs more work.
