Yahoo have just released a new iOS weather app that has a beautiful user interface that shames all others. It’s as easy to use as the default iOS weather application, with more information, and is all gussied up.
Yahoo weather uses Flickr photos based on the specified locations (or current location) as backdrops to display the weather on its home page, with a big temperature indicator for quick access of current temps, as well as highs and lows for the day. Scroll down and you’ll see more info including the daily forecast, the weekly forecast, radar map (with weather overlays), wind speed and pressure, and even information on sunrise, sunset, and the moon phases.
You can try out the app for free using the link below – I’d recommend that you do.
After the release of the new iPad, everyone’s now chomping at the bit for rumours of the new iPhone (who knows if it will be called the iPhone 5 or “the new iPhone”), so fans, like they have done in the past have resorted to designing what they want themselves. And this concept design makes me wish this was the next incarnation of the popular smart phone!
Designed by Antonio De Rosa with an edge-to-edge capacitive screen on a thin all-glass body, surrounded by a lightweight polycarbonate band where the antenna would be on the current iPhone 4S model. To increase the wow factor of this mock-up, De Rosa even included a 10 megapixel rear camera and an A6 processor, whilst doesn’t exist, should eventually have quite the processing wallop. The SJ designation Antonio uses for his version of the iPhone stands for the late “Steve Jobs.”

In my opinion this is coming too little too late, especially as the iPhone 4 has been out nearly a year already, and case mods and guides are available online to change the existing colour anyway; but apparently Apple has now confirmed to the Wall Street Journal that the white version will be available Spring time i.e. soon, as it’s Spring already! This release is apparently seen as a move by Apple to tide over consumers for the iPhone 5, as rumours suggest that its release is delayed till Autumn (Fall to the Americans) at the earliest. More info at the link below.
Are you bothered by the arrival of the white iPhone 4, or do you want the iPhone 5 now. Let us know below, or on Twitter.

Today Apple have released the 4.3.2 software update for all iOS devices. This is a minor update that fixes bugs that users have found using Facetime (including freezing or displaying random photos from the camera roll) and wi-fi & 3G connectivity on iPads. You can get the update through iTunes or through links in the linked article, though if your iDevice is jailbroken it would probably best to wait a while, till there’s a community release for the update.
