Weather apps have a depressing tendency to be iPhone-only, as if iPad owners have never idly wondered whether it was raining outside or not. Yahoo’s gorgeous, Flickr-integrated Weather app was one of these, but no longer: version 1.5 of the Yahoo Weather app has snuck past the gates of the App Store, bringing iPad support to the mix as well as some welcome new social features.
Here’s what is new, according to the Yahoo Weather 1.5 change log:
Yahoo Weather – now for iPad!
– The design, layout, and interactions you love optimized for the larger screen
– Experience stunning, interactive animations as you scroll through the forecast
Share the weather
– On iPhone, share a screenshot via Mail, Messages, Facebook, or Twitter by selecting “Share” in the sidebar
– On iPad, share by selecting the share icon on the home screen or “Share” in the sidebar
Okay, it’s not a revolutionary update by any measure, but a welcome one. Yahoo Weather is probably the best (free) weather app on the App Store, and now it’s just as good on iPad as it is on the iPhone. Thanks, Yahoo!
