Yahoo’s New Weather App is Beautiful Thanks to Flickr
Yahoo’s new weather app that was released today just replaced my Apple weather app, and probably for good. Why? Because it’s outstandingly beautiful thanks to Flickr image integration. Rather than just showing bland vectors of sun and clouds, Yahoo has backed up their accurate weather forecasting with geolocated imagery from Flickr users. So pretty…
The images are always changing and it keeps my app interesting, something I never expected out of something as generally boring as weather. I haven’t seen a terrible photo yet, so it’s likely there is some kind of selective filtering going on. Whatever the case may be, Yahoo might have just helped stop the bleeding of their growing irrelevance.
