The Yahoo Weather came out in early April 2013. It struck the users own beauty and won the Apple Design award-winning. The application was determined by the location of the user and load photo from Flicr, consistent with the weather in this place. For example, inhabitants of Moscow would have noticed the snowy Kremlin or VDNKH. Right after you exit the application may 1, 2013 Mayer faced Ivom on one of the presentations.
