Yahoo Weather app on Android now with animated effects

There are a lot of weather apps available but nothing is as stunning as Yahoo Weather. I've tried a number of related apps but I would always go back to Yahoo because of the beautiful images. The app recently received an update with animated effects like fog, heat, lighting, frost, rain, and snow. All you need to do is look at the app and you'll immediately know the weather outside. No need to open the windows because you'll know what's going on outside just by looking at your screen.

The official Android app for The Weather Channel has been updated today in the Google Play Store, and since we all love knowing whether or not it's about to rain we figured a quick status update was in order.
