Yahoo Widget’s Weather App is still the best weather app
On March 2, 2012 Yahoo! shut down the Yahoo! widget. But it still works on all Windows version up to Windows 8 without any problem. I tried finding the best weather app for my Windows 8 PC with no help. Finally I installed the Yahoo! widget found on my hard disk. It installed smooth and I had the weather app as a backup that came in handy. The Yahoo! widget is expected to run without an hiccup for a foreseeable future, till then it’s good to have it running before other widgets makes it’s appearance that is similar or better.
