Yahoo's Weather app came as a bit of a surprise when it first hit the App Store back in April. The surprise wasn't so much in the fact that the app had arrived, as we'd been expecting it for a good while beforehand, but what we weren't anticipating, was how gorgeous and refined these weather apps would be. For many iOS users, Yahoo Weather has become their go-to utility for checking precipitation, temperature, wind speed and whatnot, and now, the company has pushed out a significant update that brings support for the Apple iPad.
A few months back, Yahoo! hopped out of the wilderness to deliver a rather stunning weather app for Apple's iPhone, and in fact, the iOS 7 weather app appears to have borrowed one or two design cues from it. Naturally, many Android users have been wondering whether the updated app would would be making its way to the Google Play Store any time soon, and if you happen to be one of those individuals, your wait is officially over. The new Yahoo! Weather app is now available for Android, and as ever, it's free of charge. Details, as well as that all-important download link, can be found after the leap!
Yahoo! drifted into relative anonymity for a considerable period during the 2010s, sitting on the sidelines as Google almost single-handedly dominated with its assortment of powerful Web-based apps. However, the company has been busy reinventing its image of late, and as part of that movement, the Sunnyvale outfit has just introduced a couple of new apps for iPhone, iPad and Android tablets. As well as Yahoo! Weather for iPhone, there's a new Mail app catering to the larger displays of the iPad and Android-running tablets.
