App Reviews

  • Detailed and accurate

    I have not tried a whole lot of weather apps, but I did read about several before choosing one. The reason I tried this one is first, that it is free. Second, it is detailed with many options and as far as I can tell, seems very accurate. I love all the little animations that it adds for effect. Like showing the windmills spinning according to how fast the wind is blowing, and showing the sun moving across until it hits the area that it currently is at in the sky. There is a map of the area at the bottom that has several options for viewing such a satellite and radar. You can add and delete cities and move them around as you like. It gives a 10 day forecast. And a beautiful picture to go with each city. For a free app, this one is very impressive. And the advertisements that are inevitable with a free app, are non-intrusive. They show up as a section of their own as you scroll down through the various sections of each city. So you simply scroll past them and it is no big deal. They do not interfere with viewing.
  • Nicely laid out

    I've tried several weather apps, and there are some nice features that make this one my overall favorite so far. First of, design-wise, I really like the background photos selected from Flickr. Much nicer than seeing the san he background all the time. The main design feature I like its that all the info, hourly forecast, daily forecast, etc, are all in one screen. You just have to scroll to u find what you need, unlike some of the other apps I've tried, where you have to tap around and open different screens to see different info, of course navigating around introduce ads. As for accuracy, we haven't had much actual weather since I've been using the app, but so far it's been pretty accurate.
  • One small(ish) complaint

    By Clerk Kant
    I realize that this is primarily a weather app, and as such it seems to perform well. But it’s also an aesthetic object, meant to enhance our experience of weather information, and in this it often fails. For the past few weeks it has fed me the same, very boring background picture on each of my chosen cities. Whenever I update the information it gives me the same boring picture again (it used to give me a new picture every time I updated the screen). I wouldn’t mind so much if the picture were a good one, but it’s a terrible picture - just a flat piece of ground at the very bottom and bland, grey sky above. Am I being punished for not having a Yahoo account? Did the world suddenly become flat and bland, with a grey sky? Who knows.
  • Beautiful app but not functional

    By not good at reviews
    The esthetics of this weather app are phenomenal. I don't like ads on my apps and would gladly pay development to be able to remove them but it's a minor gripe. The main concern is over the functionality, specifically in the maps. For one, it uses satellite maps which makes it look antiquated and hard to pinpoint where I am in relation to everything else. Second, the accuracy of the radar seems to be off at times and doesn't show rain when there clearly is. I like my apps to have options as to how I want to view the data but with yahoo there is none. Sincerely hope that the devs read reviews and decide to add some better and more useful features than just a pretty app.
  • Needs active live radar sweep.

    By FreeGlorybetoGod
    Good basic weather.. i would add to the radar map the option to 2have live radar sweep and storm track it would be a great service for those in tornado alley. The loop radar doesn’t provide time sensitive data. The STORM app use to do live active sweep radar not any more they did away with it on the forced upgrade iMay 2018., now their app is just a loos. Like everyone other app. You want to be the primer weather app add live active storm tracking weather to the map so people can zoom into a towns streets to see if the storm hail , tornado is tracking toward their location, this would be a life saving feature. Where as the loop is useless in those situations. .
  • Decent app - love the simplicity

    By Va1234
    This is a decent app with a simple and elegant interface. However it would be excellent if it displayed more granular details about future days (unless this feature is there and I'm missing something). For current day it shows hour by hour breakdown of temp and precipitation. However I can't see the same for any future day. I travel a lot for work and to know if the rain is going to be periodic or all day or if it will be significantly warmer or cooler from am to afternoon is very valuable. I have resorted to multiple sources for this info which defeats the purpose of having in app. This one will probably be short lived and I will look for something else.
  • Wonderful!

    I think this is a great app! Beautiful pics, 10 days out, and the current time in each city you build into your list. Not to mention all the little extras like the wind speed, the humidity, and even the moon phases. I think it has the moon phases. If not, yahoo, can you please add that in? Thanks! And...I LOVE it that it is so easy to alphabetize your list! That right there was a game changer for me. I love it also, that when you’re on the road, and you check the weather, the location that you are in is the first forecast that comes up. I love this app!!!
  • Really like this app

    By Andywms
    This is the 4th weather app I’ve used since smartphones and apps became part of our lives. The simple weather app that usually comes with a phone doesn’t provide quite enough info. The Weather Channel app is not easy to navigate and taxes the phone. A wind specific app I tried was quirky. But this Yahoo weather app has exactly what I need and is user friendly. I like the settings that tell me the weather when I wake up, and remind me in the evening. Like the wind features. Like the “feels like” display. Nothing I really don’t like... I’m just not in he habit of giving 5 stars to anything!
  • Great app

    I have always had the Weather Channel app but when they changed it back in May it was awful! I searched for a new app and decided on Yahoo Weather, I’m so glad I did! I love this app, the pictures are gorgeous, it has all the weather details you want and I can add multiple locations which are easily seen as you just swipe. The weather can also be shown in landscape mode which I love, all the features the WC no longer has! If I had any negatives, the temp in my area is just a few degrees off but I can live with that since I have an outdoor thermometer. Download, you won’t be disappointed!
  • Pretty but useless

    I initially downloaded this app several years ago because it looked much prettier than the Apple app, and at the time I believe both apps were getting weather data from the same source. The app is still just as pretty as before, but the data is garbage. The temperature is far off, today for example ten degrees lower than the Apple app reports, the billboard outside my window reports, and lower than it feels. In other words, it's wrong. It says it's raining when it's not, it reports no rain in the forecast when I can see rain outside my window. I've tried both selecting the city as well as using "current location", and those report roughly the same things. As a weather app, then, it's useless.
