It’s fantastic. I love the use of Flickr photos — great cross-pollination.
1) I wish you could “like” the Flickrs photos from the app.
2) The app icon is awful. I would never want that on my homescreen. Yahoo, some advice: kill the branding. The purple already screams “Yahoo!” — remove the name and make the cloud and sun slightly larger. Repeat on all other apps. Boom. You’re welcome.
Check out Sun, a great HTML variation on the weather app. Very well done, complete with gestures. [via @supertino]
Also check out Haze, another beautiful and simple (native) iOS weather app.
I’ve probably tried a dozen weather apps for iOS. Most share one thing in common: they’re way too complicated. This leaves me defaulting back to Apple’s own weather app. Pure meh.
Conditions, by Jake Marsh, is the opposite of most of those other weather apps. You may think you want it to do more, but you really don’t. It’s a buck, beautiful, and simple.

Happy Groundhog Day. (Which I humorously used to care about before I moved to California — where, oddly, everyday sort of is like the film Groundhog Day, weather-wise.)
