Yahoo Releases Free Weather App

I'm always eager to report the arrival of a new free app from one of the major tech companies, and today it's Yahoo! Weather for iPhone. So far there's no version specific for the iPad. An early review on iMore says it presents a "great deal of information with a crisp, clean user interface." It offers detailed weather information and forecasts, as well as interactive radar, satellite, heat, and wind maps. Plus, it uses attractive background photos that reflect your location, time of day, and current weather conditions. As with most weather apps, you can specify your favorite locations. Also, the app allows a certain amount of customization of the interface. So far, the user reviews are stellar in the App Store.
