Weather Smiles updated with Windows Phone 8 support

Weather Smiles

Weather Smiles is a fairly simple weather app for your Windows Phone that has been recently updated to support Windows Phone 8. Version 2.0 adds multi-sized live tiles, support for all Windows Phone 8 resolutions, and lockscreen support to the mix.

Weather Smiles supports two locations for your weather forecasts, your current location and another that you choose. The app will display the current conditions and a five day forecast for each location. Live tiles will display current conditions (and forecast depending on the size) for each location as well.

Lockscreen support for Windows Phone 8 adds Weather Smiles notifications that will display the current temperature on your lockscreen. It's a nice feature but because it uses the lockscreen notifications, it's a rather small display. Really not the fault of the developer, just the nature of lockscreen notifications.

Weather Smiles live tiles and lockscreen notification

Weather Smiles gets it's weather data from World Weather Online and supports a healthy number of global locations. In just tinkering with it for a short while, Weather Smiles comes across as a nice, simple weather app for your Windows Phone.

There is a free trial version available with the full version of Weather Smiles running $1.29. It is our understanding that the $1.29 is temporary with the full price of $1.99 returning shortly. You can find Weather Smiles here at the Windows Phone Store.

There's also WeatherFlow and Locksider+

So far I am liking WeatherFlow. I seem to have bad luck with Locksider+. It eventually shows the temp on the lockscreen and the temps seem to never change or infrequent. That is with the recent update that fixed some sort of temperature update issue. +1 for WeatherFlow.

I like accuweathers lock screen its the nicest looking imo

I can't look past their disgusting website branding, its everywhere...on the lock screen, live tile and the app front page. Wish they had a paid version

How is this updated for Windows Phone 8 and they forgot to provide double wide tile size, is beyond me! :(

Make sure you have version 2.0. Click update tile to pin the new tile, you can unpin the main app tile, it is no longer used. Thanks. Developer here, you can email from the app for help or feedback.
