AmazingWeather and Chase apps get performance boost in latest updates

Amazing

Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger

Good news for those of you who use the official Chase Banking app or AmazingWeather (paid or lite), as both apps received updates today to make ‘em faster.

AmazingWeather gets bumped to version 3.6 and touts that it loads “in less than 1.5 seconds” and is now 3x faster than the previous version. That’s welcomed news as AmazingWeather is a sharp looking app but it was always a bit slow to use when compared to its competition.

Indeed, we can confirm that the app does load almost instantly now, making this app a top-contender for best Weather on Windows Phone. You can pick up the full version here for $1.49 or the lite, ad-supported one for free here.

Chase

Now set for Ludicrous Speed

The Chase Mobile banking app is still the new guy on Windows Phone so it’s nice to see that app get bumped to version 1.1 also with claims of “improved performance”. We’ve heard some complaints that the app was slow and cumbersome to use so hopefully this patch update will get things going.

You can grab Chase Mobile here in the Windows Phone Store.

Thanks, lippidp, ceaser, Mike S and the rest, for the tips

AmazingWeather and Chase apps get performance boost in latest updates

37 Comments

Got updates this morning for ESPN Radio, Cowlick!, Kayak, and NFL Live as well in case anyone cares. =)

Yea, I also had an update for Gleek as well. There were 11 total updates waiting for me today (including the Adobe X re-update).

When I downloaded the Chase update, I also got a notice from Zune telling me to update the terms of service to personalize my music selection based on ratings/listens. Anyone else get this?

For the love of baby jesus, I wish they would make the font smaller for the account activity. It is needlessly too big and makes it awkward to scroll alot just to see a little information.

Anyone else find AmazingWeather data little inaccurate for their cities? I understand weather data is not going to be 100% correct. But still I find sometime it's off by 5 degrees sometimes from other apps and also the same for Weather Master. It makes me think why I had to pay for both of these apps when their data source is inaccurate and have to use free apps anyway.

The Data is pulled from WeatherUnderground as is, if you are facing wrong temratures emails us on feedback link with the city name and we will tell the service about it no worries.

Yeah always has temps off by 3 or more degrees with other maps or online weather. Also with new update u can't add other cities as it just looks for weather stations in ur city.

Did the chase app take away the check deposit feature? Either that or it's stating me on the face, yet not see it. Please let me know if it's the latter and where you get to it

Amazing Weather update stripped out hourly forecast in place of the three hour forecast the other apps carry. Disappointing

Agreed. I prefer the extra data even if it costs a few seconds of loading. The beauty of amazing weather with the 2 day forecast on the back tile the app doesn't need to be opened as often so the I didnt notice the slower load times that much. I suggest sending feedback that 1 or 3 hour forecasts should be a user option in settings.

We actually have all the data, we will re add the hourly data back on the Next update, we thought the three hours is more readable, and as we recieved alot of feedback of this we will return it :).

Amazing Weather was rebuilt from the ground up.. File-> new Project thats why the app is more responsive, faster to load and the navigation is fluid.
 
We are planing a new update soon with new features, and we will support the new start screen also of WP8 and WP7.8 :)

I am having the same problem with the update. I can only add places near me and not other cities in my country.
