Yahoo! Weather is the official Yahoo! weather forecast app for Android
Since weather conditions determine our daily activity and, specially, our weekend plans, it's good having plenty of info about it. However, there are some apps out there that provide too much info or show it in a chaotic way, unintelligible for the average user. Yahoo! Weather is one of the most balanced app regarding amount of info and user-friendly interface. Let's see why.
First off, it displays a homescreen with the basic info: location, time, weather condition (mostly cloudy, sunny, raining, etc), current temperature and maximum/minimum temperature expected. The background of this homescreen is made up by public photos taken from Flickr related to your location. You can add as many locations as you want and switch between them just by swiping right.
In order to access detailed info in your current location, you just need to scroll down to see: weekly forecast, weather details, map, precipitation chance, wind & pressure and sun & moon (dusk and dawn time). All the info displayed is perfectly understandable for any user: there aren't technical concepts and all concepts are backed by icons to catch the idea at a glance.
Interface is, as I said, its strongest point. All the info is displayed on a glass layout which background is those photos taken from Flickr I mentioned above. It as smooth as silk. Must-have.

The best weather app at the moment it has worked well, sometimes updates with some apps spoil them but it hasn't happened with this one.
Love this app
Including the current temperature it also includes a wealth of other useful and helpful data surrounding meteorology. It also updates each location you select with sharp pictures to help illustrate the city that you choose.
Gorgeous pictures through Flickr. Excellent weather widget!
