Really nice and informative. Got rid of the stock weather widget in notification center. That doesn't even tell you wind information. I would like to know if wind is gusting up to 30 mph.

Great app, and another example of how stale Apple apps are. It's like Apple is asleep at the wheel in the iOS department.

I think Yahoo was not happy with the app Apple created and decided to do their own. My guess is the rumors of Yahoo and Apple talking several weeks ago is they wanted to use their own app in place of Apple's. And since Apple surely denied them, they submitted this app. Apple really needs to either create a way to replace default apps, or just remove the stock apps that Apple clearly doesn't spend anytime updating.
let me put it this way ... i wish the notification center on the iPad had the weather widget integrated

indeed, none of the stock apple apps have really changed since 2007. they were awesome back then but look dated now. a design of 2007 just doesnt work in 2013 anymore.

even the Facebook app looks like a masterpiece compared to something like the clock app

Maybe I'm too literal, but I consider "Direct Link" to mean "a direct link to the App Store" and not an indirect link to a middle-man website (AppShopper) that makes money off of iTunes Partner Program referrals.

Ok, if this is the "Flat Look" that iOS would adopt throughout it be up for it, image all of iOS looking this good.

Not working on wifi

Very nice app, but:
What's the deal with the single pixel purple line at the top of the screen? Doesn't look intentional to me.

Also, for some reason, this app won't update on my home wifi!! Very strange. My data connection on my home wifi is working perfectly fine, but this app just won't update when it's connected to it. I have to switch wifi off to get it to update over the cellular network.

I'm heading over to my parents house shortly, so I can test whether it works on their wifi.

Does anybody have any idea why a specific app would not be able to get data over a wifi network, when everything else is working fine?

Thanks

Well, it worked fine at my parents house on their wifi - so it must be something to do with my wifi network specifically. I'm totally confused here. Don't know where to start to try and fix.

Is there a jailbreak tweak that I can use to make the notification weather open a different app when I tap on it?

Anyone know how it was built?

Native? HTML5? Hybrid?

It has to be native code but what's your purpose for asking?

This app is actually very good, I like the details and the looks. Trouble is until I get a data plan on PAYG again I can't use it out and about ;-)

Oh and it's free too with no adverts. No adverts means it's staying

Was wondering if native if it used any openly available libraries, or if it was all proprietary code.

Some of us have not fully accepted that everything should fit YOUR needs and likes and still cling to the idea that we have our own.

No Map

I'm having the same problem someone earlier in the thread had - I downloaded this app when it won the design awards, but there are not maps anywhere in the map. I scroll through all the details, and nowhere is there any map of any kind. I am using an iPhone 4, latest iOS. Yahoo support is useless, they don't respond to anything.

LOL...looks like I nailed this. What iOS 7 has is pretty much modified Yahoo! Weather app with Apple's touches.
