Travel Tech

The new Yahoo! Weather for iPhone brings together beautiful, crowd-sourced images from Flickr with local and international forecasts. The new Yahoo! Mail apps include features such as full screen reading mode and advanced organisation tools, specially designed for tablets. Checking the weather or our email is part of our daily routine, but who says it has to be routine? These two launches take full advantage of the unique aspects of mobile devices and Yahoo! Weather draws from Flickr to make daily habits, like checking the weather or email, more inspiring and entertaining (Yahoo!).

Yahoo! Weather for iPhone is a window into the places you care about. Bringing together beautiful images from Flickr with local and international forecasts, you can now SEE the weather, not just read the weather. What’s more, tap the temperature for a quick view of the forecast or scroll down for precipitation, wind and pressure, a radar map, and more. Yahoo! Weather for your iPhone is launching internationally in 30 languages, available for free from the App Store.

Yahoo! Weather wins Apple Design Award 2013

On 11 June, Apple announced the 2013 Apple Design Award Winners at WWDC, and we’re beyond thrilled that the Yahoo! Weather for iPhone app has been chosen as one of this year’s recipients. Apple has built their legacy designing products that are inspired by form and function, setting industry standards for beauty and simplicity. To be recognized in the design space by Apple means an incredible amount to us. We are delighted that Apple and our users have responded to the design of the Yahoo! Weather for iPhone app (Yahoo Tumblr Blog).

Apple Design Award winners:

"Yahoo! Weather stands apart with its simple, uncluttered, and beautiful visual design. This highly-rated app displays weather details with stunning photography based on time of day, location, and current conditions. Yahoo! Weather has great layout and typography, compelling animations, fast image processing, and clear iconography. This attention to detail means that in a saturated category, an app can rise above the crowd. Yahoo! Weather is available in 30 languages and optimized for all current iOS devices" (Apple Design Awards 2013).
