Yahoo Weather for Android gets updated, looks like iOS 7

Yahoo Weather has been updated on Android smartphones, and it bears a resemblance to the recently updated iOS 7 stock Weather — in that it’s rather beautiful.

The stock iOS 7 Weather app does use Yahoo Weather as the provider for all the information, but the app is built by Apple’s in-house iOS team. That said, it does look quite visually similar to the new Yahoo Weather Android app, so it’s likely that someone borrowed heavily off the other.

There are quite a lot of things that set the two apart though, with the Yahoo Weather Android app coming with a lot more features, including precipitation, wind and pressure, moon phases, UV patterns, sunrise and sunset times and an interactive map.

With it being Android, you’ll also find a Yahoo Weather widget to place on your homescreen to ensure you never miss the forecast.

The app is available now on the Google Play Store and it’s absolutely free.
