Weather apps

Atmosphere Weather is one of a handful of top weather apps for Windows Phone that many of you enjoy. Although not much has happened in the few weeks since we introduced it, much work is occurring in the background.

Today, developer Kevin Smith is releasing version 1.3 of the stylish and Modern weather app, and it has with it a hefty and noteworthy changelog. Let's see what's new.

Weather apps. Windows Phone has no shortage of them, possibly due to their frequency of use as well as the ability to work with specific data. Regardless, I am always excited to see new ones join the flock, especially if they embrace the Modern design language from Microsoft.

Atmosphere is a wonderfully designed weather app for Windows Phone 8 that has enough features to keep most forecast fans content. The design of Atmosphere is probably its main feature, as it is bold, clean and easy to read. Likewise with the Live Tile, which has one of the better layouts I have seen.

We were tipped on a relatively new Windows Phone 8 weather app the other day and while we have plenty of weather app options, this one ain't too shabby. Skyline has a minimalist appearance that delivers the basic weather information along with an interesting map feature.

Yes. It is another Windows Phone weather app but Skyline has enough appeal and gusto to stand out from the pack.

4castr is a wildly popular weather app for Windows Phone, maintaining a 4.4 rating (out of 5) on the Store. Today, version 1.5 ‘Stratus’ has gone live, and it brings with it a massive list of changes and improvements. The app is free with in-app-purchases to unlock premium features, making it a fun option to toy around with, especially if you want detailed forecasting.

Let’s take a look at what today’s update brings. Grab a coffee, because the list in long (and we just love detailed changelogs).

Color Weather is a no-nonsense weather app for Windows Phone 8. The minimalistic design changes the background color dynamically depending on the current temperature.

Along with the current conditions, Color Weather offers a five-day forecast so you can better plan your week. The weather app does have Live Tile support and while Color Weather’s simple design has a certain level of appeal, it may be too minimalistic for some.

There are so many weather apps on Windows Phone, but they’re fun to cover. Most people will be served by apps like Bing Weather and AccuWeather, but a lot of folks have different preferences and wants from a weather app. Some want a ton of details and as much information as possible, while others just want to know the current temperature. The fact that weather apps can vary is why we like covering them. Maybe the new weather app we’re covering will be perfect for you if you haven’t found the one for you yet. Today we’re checking out newcomer Blue Skies for Windows Phone. It’s simple, it’s clean and it’s currently free for a limited time.

Do I need an umbrella today? Most of you answer this by just looking out your window when you wake up. That might cut it in a place like southern California, but head anywhere else and you’re going to need to check the weather forecast to dress accordingly. Let’s check out the best weather apps on Windows 8.

Weather apps are a little tricky to review and rank. There are many different users who all look for something different from a weather app. You know, different strokes for different folks. Some put a higher importance on accuracy, while others want a weather app that looks good. We spent the last few days trying out a handful of weather apps in the Windows Store and walked away being most impressed by the following. In no particular order, here they are.

There are certainly plenty of weather apps on Windows Phone, and everyone has their idea of the perfect one. One of my favorites is Vieather, which hails from Vietnam. The app is lean, mean and it’s free (ad-free too). It doesn’t have Doppler radar or breaking weather alerts, but it does offer a nice visual approach to your current conditions. Did I mention there’s also a Windows 8 app for your Surface?

Version 2.0 just landed on the Store the today and if you already use the app, then you may have been alerted to the update.  The changelog is a partial carry over from the last few updates, though I’ll tell you exactly what’s new.

We like app updates. They take apps that we like and make them better. You’ll get more features, improvements on existing features and bug fixes. That’s typically what happens when you head to the Windows Phone Store to update an app. Which is why it’s a little odd that the Nokia edition of the Weather Channel just lost some functionality in its latest update. Details below.

Well here we are, Weather+ is now available for you to download and it is a thing to behold. Let’s check it out.

True fact, we were just hit with a blizzard here in the North East. It’s routine for this part of the country, but that doesn’t mean we don’t need a good weather forecasting app.  Step in Weather+, a forthcoming app form developer Bailey Stein. Due for release on January 10th, we got a sneak peek of it and want to give you a tour.

So what makes this app so special? Well, it does a few unique things that we haven’t seen in weather apps, plus it has a very clean design. Head past the break to see our video tour, some screen grabs and what to expect!

Following on the heels of AccuWeather’s update for Windows Phone is WeatherBug, who lands at the 3.0 marker today. If you know updates, a whole number change means “big” and that’s the case here. How significant is this? Well, our records last show an update for this app back in May. Wait sorry, that’s May 2012.

WeatherBug 3.0 has been completely overhauled and it’s more in line with their iOS and Android designs. That’s not to say they haven’t flatten some of the graphics and adapted it for Windows Phone, but rather the menu system is a bit odd for Windows Phone users. Having said, we would be lying if we didn’t say it was feature packed. Let’s take a look.

We’ve covered plenty of weather apps over the years here. Everyone has their favorite and Windows Phone has a handful of great apps to choose from to suit your needs and tastes. We first looked at Weather Smiles a little over a year ago when it launched. A few months later it was updated with all the Windows Phone 8 features you’d want. It’s picked up a few updates over the past few months. The most recent a few days ago. Let’s check it out.
