Will return to favorite weather app when live tile works again. I've had inaccurate readings since I updated to 8.1 on a Lumia 1020 last week. I had an app update this week to get an initial splash screen I didn't need, and I tried reinstalling this morning -same ~10° F off. I'll probably try again next month: Good luck recovering.

Good overall app. It won't stop asking you to rate it.

Only thing I dislike about it doesn't update on the live tile on my window's phone

Got the latest version. Changed settings to Current instead of Favorite and experienced a long list of bugs. Every launch it asked for location, even though I've already provided it. And pressing back just throw me into a loop. Also, changed the default location but now the Live Tile doesn't update unless the app is opened. It's 11p and it shows sunny. Like the interface but can't live with the bugs. Won't uninstall but ill be using other weather apps.

Stop asking me to rate this app! It asks me to rate this app every time I open it. It is misleading to ask for more than one rating per user as you will obviously get a false approval rate. It's getting annoying and my rate for this app is getting less and less positive as you are losing credibility with me

What did you do to the lock screen, it's **** now! Plus this new update makes my phone freeze and reboot. I give only 1 star, wish it could be less!

Live tile broken after latest update. Just a static solid orange background. Before update, tile was transparent with 5 day forecast and everything, now useless. Went to Weatherbug instead.
