Yahoo plans to release an in-house weather app for iOS and an iPad version of its Yahoo Mail app as soon as tomorrow, according to a person familiar with the apps.
The iPad version of Yahoo Mail is optimized for the iPad’s larger screen, and it is already available for the iPhone and iPod touch. Late last year, Yahoo released a redesigned version of its iPhone application that focused on speed and intuitiveness.
Yahoo’s new weather app is notable as the company already is in a partnership with Apple to provide the data for the Weather app pre-installed on all iPhone and iPod touch models…
Recent reports have said that Yahoo and Apple executives have been meeting to discuss ways that the two companies can further their partnership. Besides Weather, Yahoo provides data for iOS’s Siri and Stocks functions. Yahoo search is also an option for the Safari browser.
