Love the Yahoo! Weather app but the new icon sucks.

Funny - I'm glad they changed the icon - I think it's much better. Oh well, one man's meat's another man's poison and all that.:)

Evernote is one of the worst apps I have on my iPhone. The only reason it hasn't been deleted is copy paste doesn't work good in the app and it's too much work to get the previously entered notes in another app. But it looks awful!

Good to see Yahoo Weather on the list. It's amazing - almost to a point of suspicion - how many similarities it shares with iOS 7.
