The Good Yahoo Weather elegantly displays your forecast along with other useful weather information. The interface is simple and shows great-looking Flickr photos for each location you add.

The Bad It requires an extra step to see the weekly forecast.

The Bottom Line With an elegant interface, weather information, and interactive maps, Yahoo Weather is a must-have for weather watchers everywhere.

Editors' note: This review has been updated with the release of the Android version, August 8, 2013.

Yahoo Weather (iOS|Android) is a weather app that displays stunning Flickr photos as a backdrop to a wide range of weather information on your phone. There are certainly other options with more weather information, but for a quick look at what's happening in your area, Yahoo Weather is a good-looking and well-made app.

When you launch Yahoo Weather, you'll be asked immediately if the app can use your location so it can give you information on the weather around your area. From there you'll be presented with a photo from your area via Flickr, and the app takes into account what time of day it is to give you an image that matches your current time. In the lower left of the screen you get the current outlook (such as "Partly cloudy"), the high and low temperature for the day, and the current temperature.
