Canada's Weather Network app hits the Windows Phone Store
The Weather Network app is a new weather app for your Windows Phone that is powered by Canada's national weather service that shares the same name. The user interface is simple and straight forward and has a decent feature set.
The Weather Network has a "Follow Me" setting that will automatically adjust to your current location as you travel and has notifications for severe weather alerts.
The layout for The Weather Network puts your current conditions and forecast data front and center. Main pages include your current conditions, an hourly forecast, a short term forecast (24 hours) and a long term forecast (five days). There is a "more" page that provides you access to weather maps, settings, and your locations.
Weather maps are animated and include layers for precipitation and cloud cover. Locations can be entered manually or by using the Follow Me feature and let your Windows Phone locations services set things.
The Weather Network's settings cover your measurement display (Fahrenheit, Celsius, Metric, Imperial) as well as turning on/off your location services and the Follow Me feature. Speaking of locations, The Weather Network does support global locations.
All in all, The Weather Network app is a nice looking weather app with some nice features. The animated map loads nicely and there's plenty of weather information to help you plan your day
The Weather Network is a free, ad support app the you can find here at the Windows Phone Store.
