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

Its a very well written app. Would it be possible to make Blue Skies a choice for the Lock Screen Background? I see that you can select this app for the Lock Screen Notifications but I would think most people pick the Calendar for Notifications, which leaves the Background. Just a thought.More
Nice, clean interface. App provides accurate results in an easy to use manor. Highly recommend this!!More
Been pretty buggy w/ W10M.
My live tile stops updating App live tile won't show the correct city App occasionally crashes at launch. All on W10M on a 950. No issues with any other apps. Have reinstalled a few times already.More
exactly what I was looking for
Accurate, concise, great UI. Not clustered like other weather apps. Only problem is live tile is hit or missMore
Great ux clean minimalistic all info is there but inexplicably stops working and cannot be opened until reinstalled on lumia 535More
Like the app, wish that it showed precipitation bar chart as in Dark Sky and on the website version of the app. It would make is as good as the apple app which is my favorite weather app.More
Live tile stopped working some time ago. I like the clean interface, but I need something I don't have to open to get the basic weather infoMore
Great app but adding of lock screen will be appreciated.More
Usually accurate and easy to use.More
Accurate forecasts and clean simple layout
Maybe this isn't the prettiest weather app in the Windows Phone store, but it's the easiest to use and most functional, overall. I particularly like the resizable live tile with its flip feature.More
