Solid app, but the live tile is terrible. Only displays the temp in upper right hand corner, in a black circle, which means temp can only be displayed from 0 to 99. Would love to see flickr photos on the live tile, with forecasted data laid on top.More
Really wish that the app itself had live tile rather then pinning every city. I'd like it better if the app could filp through each city with a live tile for the app. Next update hopefully!More
It is not that accurate, especially wind speed and rain data. Error when set to lockscreen. Altough it have nice tile, simplicity than the other appsMore
Very nicely done! Solid information and useful layout. Needs better navigation. Good to see updates and you fixed bugs.More
I wanna love this...i like the Bing images on lock screen etc..the only negative is the military time ( I have to do math for a min) & the date shows for example.. 4/10 its Oct 4th but it looks like April 10th so i thought it wasn't current for awhile! Looks scientific etc.. But thats not a plus for the average, busy person wanting info at a glance! Thank uMore
Does the job, very well. Great interface, live tiles and the city based lockscreen is awesomeMore
First off, I really like this weather app. It updates my location, and having the current weather on my lock screen is pretty cool. That being said, it has crashed on me the last 2 days. I cannot open it from my start screen at all. Went into the app itself, and all the settings were turned off. Hmm. Please fix before I am forced to delete!More
Crashed on first load...way to handle exceptions. I think weather flow is much better, plus it gives you the weather on the lock screen and not just picturesMore
Thanks for the update...Only one more request: Would like to be able to switch to regular time instead of military time...keep up the good work!More
