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.
Prepare for your day with the most accurate hourly, 5-day, and 10-day forecasts. Stunning Flickr photos match your location, time of day, and current conditions.

I like the app, it works well with my Samsung Galaxy SII. The weather can be a bit off not quite right, I see rain outside then 30 minutes later it shows up on the app. that needs sorting out!!!!!!!
Not too fancy... not too simple... just rigth
When I add other cities such as Orlando and Ft. Myers the message is always "Sorry weather information not available". Useless weather app unless you only want info for your current city.
This is okay if you can't turn on the news but it's generally inaccurate on non-sunny days. What I see outside is only occasionally what the app shows. The details provided, like humidity or rainfall throughout the day (only one data is given for am and pm), are limited and I would like to have had hourly information. As it is, it's pretty to look at but with little worth. I'd rather have an ugly,
