YoWindow Free Weather for Android presents your weather forecasts in a very stylish and visually pleasing manner. I love it.
YoWindow Free Weather is one of the nicest looking weather apps I have personally tried. The interface is highly visual, and frankly, just a pleasure to use. The presentation is highly modern and makes use of all your available screen space quite effectively. Just open the app to instantly see your current weather conditions displayed over an animated background. The backgrounds change to depict your current weather conditions, and also emulate the basic look of the locale in which you live; New York had buildings and an airport, L.A. had scenic palm trees, and London literally just showed a screen filled with falling rain.
The best part of the interface was the ability to see the forecast through time with just a swipe of your finger. The current time is shown on the left, with the entire week's forecast visually depicted across the top. Just beneath all the daily forecasts, you'll see a timeline for the current day; slide your finger across the screen to advance the forecast, hour by hour, and see a visual depiction of how the day's weather will unfold for any given minute. On the right, you'll see the predicted temp, wind, 'feels like' estimation, humidity and barometric pressure.
I have never seen a more thorough weather app that displayed so well and so fast. A huge amount of information is presented in a stylish manner, all of which can be easily toggled through with ease. The interface is exceedingly intuitive and refined.
YoWindow Free Weather is simply one of the best weather apps I've ever had the pleasure to use. This one will stay on my personal short-list for sure.
