Accuweather for Windows Phone 8 is now available in the Windows Phone store. The Windows Phone 8 version adds lockscreen integration and customizable live tile sizing to the already impressive list of Accuweather features.

Lockscreen integration provides current conditions from your default location and an weather image illustrating the current conditions. While it would have been nice to have seen more options (e.g. extended forecast) it's a start.

We’re not sure where Nokia is headed with this one but there is now a second Accuweather app in the Windows Phone Store, but this latest one is for Nokia Lumias only.

Now before every non-Nokia owner out there throws a fit, there is no difference between this version and the open one for all Windows Phone users. In fact, it’s slightly older being at version 2.1 whereas the common app is at version 2.2. This is similar to the Nokia SoundTracker app, where as far as we know there are no differences either.

If you use the Accuweather app on your Windows Phone, you'll notice an update being pushed through this morning. Version 2.2 doesn't bring any new features to the weather app but instead is more of a maintenance update to address a few bug fixes.

We have noticed that after updating, whatever fixes that are put in place seems to give Accuweather a little more zip. Pages load faster and navigation smoother.

Accuweather.com brings Mango into the forecast

The popular Windows Phone weather app, Accuweather.com, has gone Mango. The update gives the app the fast resume feature and, most notably, the ability to pin multiple weather tiles to your Start Screen.

Just go to your locations, tap hold on a forecast city and you can choose to pin the location to your Start Screen and give it a custom name. Tapping on one of these tiles launches the Accuweather.com app and sets the weather information to that location.

Accuweather.com is a free application for your Windows Phone and you can download it here at the Windows Phone Web Marketplace.  If you happen to see any additional changes to Accuweather.com feel free to share in the comments.

Thanks goes out to Miguel for tipping us on this!

Accuweather for WP7 joins the crowd

It has been on heck of a week over at the Windows Phone Marketplace. From Angry Birds to Best Buy as well as Fox News and the New York Times, we've seen a lot of new apps hit the Marketplace.  Even Major League Baseball got into the act.

Closing the week out Accuweather for Windows Phone 7 has blown into the Marketplace. The popular weather website is now mobile bringing you a ton of weather related information.

Features include:

  • Accurate and localized forecasts for all global locations. Forecasts include hourly forecasts for the next twenty-four hours, plus day and night weather forecasts and information for the next ten days. All updated hourly.
  • Panoramic views with easy swiping between your stored locations (up to seven plus your current GPS location).
  • Current weather conditions include time, temperature, wind speed, wind gust speed, and wind direction; humidity, visibility, UV Index, cloud cover, pressure, and sunrise and sunset.
  • Severe Weather Alarms for all global locations and severe Weather Alerts for the U.S. – visible from all screens.
  • Special lifestyle forecasts, such as conditions for specific sports and other outdoor activities.

You also have animated radar, satellite maps, interactive Bing Maps, and weather videos. The day and night forecasts include precipitation amounts, wind data, and Accuweather's RealFeel temps. This takes various weather conditions such as wind, humidity and other factors to give you an idea how it feels outside.

We'll give Accuweather for WP7 a test drive over the holiday weekend and get a video review up shortly. In the meantime, you can download your free copy of Accuweather for WP7 here (opens Zune) at the Marketplace.

Thanks goes out to Tahiti Bob for the tip!
