As a cyclist, mountaineer and generally as someone who spends a lot time being a human outside, this app perfectly illustrates in different tactile ways, the weather forecast.

I can’t express enough how the Sky, Tables, Graph thing is immensely illustrative and intuitive, providing a simple and easy to assimilate demonstration of the up coming weather.

In a world of apparently novel expression through different app designs YR have truly created a breathtakingly novel app that reaches out to everyone. Just look at the demo and give it a try.


Accurate and beautiful!

Wow! I’ve used a large variety of weather apps over the last decade and this one I can unequivocally say is brilliant. It has a high percentage of accuracy across various metrics, is incredibly easy to use and looks beautiful!


Looks better than previous version but...

I’ve been using the YR app on a daily basis since 2010 but that will probably stop now. The useful features of the old app, namely being able to check the next couple of days’ forecast, cloud cover and wind speed in different locations are gone and instead there’s a fancy looking interface that’s even less useful than apples own weather app. Sad to see this (previously) great app go.
