Useful in comparing locations

The app does a great job of mathematically calculating climate averages without having to deal with specific weather stations. The app controls allow for easy comparison of, say, your hometown for a particular month versus another location. Very simple. Question: there are three marks on the temperature scale for a given location. They appear to show average high and low temperature. Then there is a mystery 'lollipop' marker that is between them. It does not appear to be a daily/monthly mean. What is it?

Was a nice app, but, after the splash screen it shows a black screen, after 1 or 2 minutes it open but keep slowly even if I reinstall. L820 with developer preview.

Best design ever...gorgeous,fun... but nobody will use it until you make it load a thousand times faster. Please put whoever designed the UI for this app in charge of approving all future Microsoft GUI design work.

I think this is an excellent idea for traveling. Fahrenheit would be nice, I'd also like to be able to scroll through months easier. When you get to December be able to go right to January as opposed to having to scroll all the way back. If you could select places and have this information displayed on a graph of monthly occurrence that would be fantastic also.

Nice app. Enhanced usability and real time data would be a nice addition.

Decent start, but having a Fahrenheit option is a must. Adding *annual* average numbers for each location would be good too.

Incomplete. Should be able to type in a city name instead of hovering and guessing. Temperatures are limited to °C. Also, UV strength (1-10) and % humidity would be useful layers.

Map drag and target is nice, but a city search would also be very useful. And what's up with no Fahrenheit option? That's a big oversight.

Three is no option to set the temperature scale to Fahrenheit. Contrary to whatever the authors may think, this does not mean it is "scientific" - it just means that they failed to localize it to their home market, which is breathtakingly arrogant. Other commentators have noticed performance problems and lack of features to. But I can't get over the way the app seems to look down on its own potential users. I immediately uninstalled this app. The user-hostile experience makes me less likely to try other MSR apps in the future.
