Blue Skies brings the hyper-local forecast from the highly popular iPhone app, Dark Sky, to Windows Phone. Using the same information as Dark Sky, Blue Skies can tell you precisely if it will rain or snow in the next hour. Now you can know if it's a good idea to take that umbrella with you as you leave your house. Unlike the Dark Sky app, Blue Skies brings the weather to your home screen with a beautiful live tile. Features: - Summary of next hour (Is not available for all locations) - Summary of next 24 hours - 24 hour forecast - 5 day forecast - Detailed weather information including: precipitation, humidity, wind speed, sunrise, and sunset - Displays severe weather warnings and advisories - Live tile with small, medium, and wide tile sizes - Transparent live tile perfect for Windows Phone 8.1 - Ability to choose the live tile look that's right for you - Choose the live tile update frequency to reduce battery consumption/data usage - Choose between a light or dark theme - Simple and easy to use - Use voice commands to get the weather - Toast notifications for weather warnings - Radar maps by Weather Underground and Open Weather Maps through in-app purchaseMore

One of the nicest looking weather apps in the store. Clean, elegant and with the information that most people need. Also, delightful implementation of the Metro UI. PS: Now it only needs a rewrite using W10 APIs.More
Please support this Developer.
This App deserves fives stars as it is one of the better Apps on the Windows Store. The developer deserves every encouragement to continue to evolve this application. I would love to see access on the lock screen for one.More
So far the best weather app out there. Design is just great!More
Simple and clean. Great little app!More
Good app. Live tile is great when it works but has to be manually refreshed every couple days.More
I've found the rain predictions on this app quite accurate. As someone who bikes to work, I really appreciate knowing what to prepare for. And the app design is excellent.More
Very streamlined, and easy to use. Looks like a professionally built app.More
Probably not the best weather app if you are looking for features, but it's definitely had the best weather app design, it looks very nice on your start screenMore
Beautiful and simple. All the info I need. Works very well and does what it says. Love it. If we have more developers like this for Windows phone, we'll be in business. Keep up the good work.More
I really like this app..but the live tile often doesnt auto update.Its enabled to run in the background.But I often have to open it and refresh it manually for the weather to update in the live tile.More
