Cydia Tweak: How To Make Yahoo! Weather The Default Weather App In iOS
Are you a fan of Yahoo's recently launched Weather app for iOS? If so, consider downloading YahooWeatherisBetter, an appropriately named jailbreak tweak that can establish Yahoo! Weather as the default weather application on a jailbroken iDevice. After downloading the free jailbreak tweak from the Cydia Store, jailbreakers can enable YahooWeatherisBetter from within the built-in Settings app. Here, you have the option of rerouting both the Notification Center widget and the default Weather app icon to Yahoo's third-party Weather application, as you can see in the below image: [caption id="attachment_410479" align="aligncenter" width="300"] YahooWeatherisBetter[/caption] The jailbreak tweak works as advertised, though problematically it's not possible to reroute Siri, meaning the atypical Siri question - "What's the weather like?" - will nevertheless send jailbreakers over to Apple's own application, even after the tweak has been installed and configured. Hopefully YahooWeatherisBetter's developer will address this issue in a forthcoming update. If you're of the opinion that Yahoo! Weather is indeed better, then install this free jailbreak tweak now and kick Apple's default Weather app over to one side. Currently, the package is available to download free of charge in the Cydia Store, via the BigBoss repository.
