My Yahoo Weather App 4/5
I’m using my app, now, instead of on my iPhone 8+, on my new, iPhone 11, Pro Max. I live in an Obscured Valley, located in an unincorporated portion of Corona, California. On the 8, Yahoo sent me Alerts. Alerts so accurate, they told me, to within minutes of when it was going to rain here. After rain began, ON TIME!, Yahoo would indicate the approximate length of “Our Rain episode(s). Me, being disabled, and dependent on a wheelchair, walk my Service Dog, 2 ½ -4 hours every morning, and 2 ½ hours every night, after dark. It’s vital for my health, and my Dog’s, to know how to dress, and Exactly, what to expect, weather wise, on our treks. Especially since my dog is totally aqua-phobic! He may tolerate a light sprinkle for 5 minutes, but add a few drops, add the tiniest bit of wind, or drop the temperature more than 2 degrees, and he will chew through his leash, & Run! To the nearest dry spot, protected from any wind, and hunker-down for a 2-day enemy attack. He withstood the sweltering Summer Temps of 103°, 4 & 5 days in a row. After arriving home, he refused to come inside. Air conditioned to 75°, no flies, cool Lactaid, and bottled water. And A Treat. Nope. He’d stay Outside. In the shade, thank you, and sleep on his 2X3 foot carpet. No food or water, Until it was time for our next unbearable outing!
Having lost my iPhone 8, On Oct. 5, I had No $ to buy another iPhone until the 3rd of December. I have No running water, only electricity for 15-20 minutes a night, from my 1 year old 1 million decibel <~(not true) B&S, 6,500 watt generator. No $ for gas, so 15 minutes MAX! (I’m obviously hideously poor.) My only connection to the outside world, my only Radio, & now, my only T.V. Is my new iPhone 11. This Review gets 4, not 5 stars, as that Yahoo Weather App on my 8, worked 25-30% better. I still regard this App, as “The Finest Weather App, chosen by Apple to provide additional features not found in “Apple’s” oversimplified Weather app. This app NO LONGER PROVIDES: My little Valley’s Alerts. The “Hourly” feature has been mutilated, by possibly an older employee who feared unemployment more than providing his best work.(Which I always endowed this talented type of employee with public praise. When budgets permitted, they were bonused, & raised.) My dog & I have No Clues now, to prepare us. The Alerts have all but stopped. (Though the rains have increased by 78%.)
My little Valley, once Prominent @ the Top Of My City List-NO LONGER EXISTS. Great job, you idiot! We have (a Lot!) multi-million dollar estates here, A few of these great benefits to society are deeply interested in our weather here, ESPECIALLY THE RAIN ☔️. I speak with them on our golf course here. I’m poor, becppl sorry I’m I’m weather-buffs, N, S, E, W. Use that talented employee, whom erroneously F’d up your local Weather in Corona, CA. (Zip: 92883)
Have THEM delineate the 4 sections for increased, local Weather reporting. (Yes, we all know: The Temps change at specific cross-streets or mile markers on highways throughout every city in America. Once they decide the 4 primary zones, allow them to Name each zone that will be recognized by people that live in each zone. Give this employee a real chance to be an asset. They truly need to be needed by Yahoo. Make their decisions for the zone Names they choose, semi permanent! With changes allowed ONLY by them, Once. In the 3 month probation period. After that, They’ll have to wait 3 years to change ANYTHING. This forces their creative side to “Set-aside”, and make great decisions for your company. Your App users will accept these services immediately. Note: Especially my Glen Ivy Golf Park friends, and the hundreds of wealthy Glen Ivy Hot Springs Members. Please place our gorgeous community back in your embrace. We need your Alerts. More than ever, now. Start us on the practice mound on time again. Inform those men & women parked in their vehicles, wearing a towel, How long this rain will last, so they can “Streak” to the front entrance, & still be seen at their appointment times.
I know. a - LOT Wordy. But there are a Lot of emotional ties to your app in my community. Put that person who “Threw away”, our communities weather information, IN CHARDE OF PUTTING IT BACK. They obviously know their job well. They’ll be reminded every day, how important, the accuracy of those Alerts must be. Even for just 2 of the Primary Glen Ivy businesses to survive here.
My thanks to Yahoo’s Outsource Clerks, Gophers, Editors, & Editor in Chief, for providing a User-Input format that I sincerely hope is thoughtfully read, & used occasionally, for the “Worthy Ideas” launch pad.
These, and future reviews are a genetic, & necessary organ for continued growth and success of Yahoo.
Happy Holidays to Everyone @ Yahoo. I love your app(s) your creative and your logical finesse! Obviously apparent in your Weather predictions. Thank you for creating this beautiful, unique, and too-damned accurate! App.
Always an admirer,

Best weather App 5/5
Modern app for Modern times.
Minimal ads, great layout and info. Love it.
Worse than bad!
All you need 5/5
Good, solid, app that tells you all you need to know about the current and future weather - - and it’s attractive, too.
One flaw: the radar screen is too small to be really useful. But it’s a small flaw and doesn’t take much away from the entire weather experience.
This is the only one I have and I'm very glad to have it.
Not sending to others! 5/5
By A busy bea
I have enjoyed this app but wonder why it will not any longer allow me to send to a friend! 🐝
Yahoo weather 4/5
Simple, and it works!
So good because we are in mystique
Weather APP 5/5
In comparison to the weather channel, Apple weather App is a #5 star mention in barametric pressure readings, wind speed, rain, sunny , cloudy, or snowy readings
Location finders 3/5
This weather app cannot list or locate the US or British Virgin Islands
Won’t update 1/5
Only rarely will the data load. Mostly, it’s just trying to upload without success.
The answer for me might be for you too 5/5
This is the only weather app that gives me everything I need without all the nonsense, and you won’t lose anything as there are no surprises.
Great looking app but doesn’t update location 3/5
When you change a location the app won’t show the weather for the new location for a long time then won’t update to another new location for a day or more. Aside from that glitch I like the layout and simplicity
I like it, but it has this glitch with the widget, where it pretends like it can't tell you the weather unless you give it access to your device's location services, which I'm not trying to do and let it drain the crap out of my battery. I entered my zip code and it will tell me the weather just fine when I open the app, but for some reason just the widget is screwed up.
* I don't remember when I wrote that review, but it still hasn't been fixed.
Advertisements! That’s What’s New!!! 1/5
By Travel Guy M.
I’m deleting this app due to advertisements!!
The best. 5/5
Direct and to the point weather updates and forecasts. Without a doubt ahead of its rivals .
Love it but please change site photos more often
Why is not updated the times for weathers 1/5
Is Yahoo gettin new app to downloan to help me out to have better WiFi would “?? Please email Jen to help me out for weather works better for Jen back “!!
By yes they all taken
Still needs one thing. 5/5
Nice layout, easy to interpret, accurate data worldwide. It’s still my goto weather application.
But it would be very nice to see the option of both Fahrenheit and Centigrade displaying at the same time.
Nice, simple and beautiful 5/5
The Yahoo! Weather app is stunning to look at, with beautiful local photos, but the important part is that all the information you need is there in a simple, straightforward presentation, with the current temperature at the top. Scroll down to get hourly and daily forecasts, wind readings, sunrise and sunset. It is the best weather app for presentation.
Current location 2/5
The app isn’t bad with the exception of the current location. It seems to have a hard time determining my current location. For instance when I just looked at it, it knew I’m in Texas. Then I checked the weather back home in WV. then when I go back to my current location it still shows weather in WV. I’m over 1100 miles from that location. This has been a problem with the app for years. Sometimes it recognizes my current location and sometimes not.
Best Third party weather app 5/5
Very accurate and gives you alerts each morning so you can prepare for the day. Highly recommended
Never mind this one 1/5
Beautiful, Accurate, Detailed, and FREE! 5/5
Best weather app I’ve found. Only wish images in background were clearer.
No Map 1/5
There is no map except the local map. No other city or area is visible
Time change 1/5
Seriously saying the sun goes down at 4:09. It was 6:09 yesterday and daylight savings is gone. So a 2 hour time change? This app is ridiculous.
Yahoo wether app. 5/5
Best wether App.
Current data seems accurate but forecast is a mess. It is too inconsistent to be helpful. Halloween forecast for example was a 40% chance of rain. Except the early AM forecast was 0%: the morning forecast was 0%; the afternoon forecast was 0%; and the evening forecast was 0%. So 4 X 0 = 40? App is easy to use and attractive but worthless.
This app is really primitive. You can’t change the order of the locations or delete locations.
It is a good app but the weather is all was changing the weather everyday when I picked my clothes out the next morning the weather changes.
Weather app 5/5
By big breeze 1
Very nice app and easy to use
Latest update stinks 1/5
Latest update doesn’t want to load and dropped all my locations. But it will load the ad. Just what I prefer to see.
Would also like to have rain totals. In inches!
Yahoo got you covered 5/5
News and weather Yahoo got you covered so go do some good in this wide world your eyes are now opened.
Works but issues with notifications 3/5
The notification settings don’t stay and I’ve gotten rained on without a notification and found out that it switched off.
Yahoo is more accurate than Accuweather 5/5
It’s a shame that most weather providers like NBC, Accuweather, the Weather Channel and Apple goes by with such inaccuracies with the weather prediction while Yahoo is truly the most accurate when it comes to weather predictions. Apple should go back to using Yahoo as its weather sources and to stop relying on inaccurate weather predictions of the weather channel.
Love it, v ey nicely done good detail and easy to see I give it 5 stars 5/5
Helpful app 5/5
I like this app because it informs me with the news that I need.I also like this app because it does not charge me for anything.I think that I have found the weather app I need.
This is generally a good app. However, I don’t understand the fairly consistent contradictory forecasting. For example, ‘clear tonight with 100% chance of precipitation’??? Or, showing sunshine on the hourly forecasting icons, yet a rainy cloud on the daily icon. Doesn’t make sense!
Thanks for updating the app and changing the font size and color. It makes it easier to see the weather in the widget.
Newest update user unfriendly 1/5
It’s not clear at all how to remove locations anymore
Can’t delete previous edited cities 2/5
Was good, now not 1/5
Unable to edit locations after the ios 13 update. This app has had an update since 13 but hasn't fixed the problem.
Bugs need to be fixed 2/5
By Silenced ;)
Locations can't be edited in IOS 13... Screen icons are misaligned and do not function. I know others have mentioned this as well.... Why is it taking so long to address?
Love this app...again! 4/5
Now that they’ve fixed the bug of not being able to delete cities, I am happy, again! Seems like it was fixed fairly fast, just too bad we had to write one star reviews to get it fixed... We travel full time all over the country, so it’s so nice to be able to add our upcoming cities to know what to expect! Very well laid out and the 10 day forecast is extremely helpful!
New version won’t let me delete locations 2/5
Please fix this bug!
Also, it’s frustrating to have my part of greater LA called “Los Angeles.” LA is huge and varies a lot in temperature depending on where you are. Please allow separate labeling of areas like Van Nuys or Hollywood.
Most incompetent developers 1/5
They have some really bad developers as this app is full of bugs. So after a couple of weeks they finally fixed the bug where you can’t delete any cities that are in your saved cities list. But, they still haven’t fixed the problem of the app sending notifications of cities not on your watch list. This is even after you’ve disabled all notifications. This has been a problem for months.
