Weather Flow

Transparent Live Tiles are all the rage these days due to Windows Phone 8.1. It’s just not us, either, as even Microsoft is urging developers to enable the see through feature in their apps. That’s why we’re excited to see Weather Flow pick up the feature in today’s update.

Weather Flow is one of the original ‘super gorgeous’ weather apps for Windows Phone, in fact, it goes way back to 2012! Weather Flow nicely embraces the whole Modern design paradigm so well, that many people still cling to it as their favorite (despite not picking up some advanced features).

It has been a long time since we’ve seen an update for Weather Flow on Windows Phone. In fact, version 1.5 of the app came out last August and introduced a few new languages and Live tile improvements. After a long period without an update we’re finally getting one today. Does it bring those transparent Live tiles a lot of you have wanted since last Monday?

Windows Phone Central App and Game Roundup: Zombies Games meet Weather Apps

Three categories of Windows Phone titles come to mind as having the strongest presence in the Windows Phone Store; Zombie games, Weather apps, and Photography apps.  These groups seem to multiply faster than bunnies or flashlight apps.  Fortunately, while some may see these categories as over saturated, it's crowded with quality titles.  Which is never a bad thing.

In this week's Windows Phone Central Roundup, we focus on two of these categories, Zombies and Weather titles (we'll pick on the photography apps on down the road).  The Zombie titles in the roundup are some of our favorite titles that have been covered through the years.  The weather apps aren't heavyweight apps like the Weather Channel or Accuweather but they do a good job of keeping us up to date with what Mother Nature has in store.

Good news if you’re a fan of the wildly popular Weather Flow apps for your Windows Phone or Windows 8/RT as both apps have received updates to help make the experience bettter.

First up, the Windows Phone version gets a nice bump for all of those on 7.8 and who want a fancy double wide tile. Version 1.5 now adds the ability to have Rich or Metro double wide tiles, including minimal data or the full weather cast for the week, matching the Windows Phone 8 abilities.

Oh we’re in it now. Some of our long time favorite apps are now getting bumped for Windows Phone 8 and we’re really excited about it. Weather Flow, made by Gergely Orosz (who’s also behind such the amazing Cocktail Flow and AppFlow) just hit the version 1.3 marker and it’s primed for the new OS.

The new update, weighing in at a sprightly 9MB, has newly updated graphics, fixed Live Tiles, lockscreen wallpaper and a few other goodies on board. Check our video hands on and see what we think.

UK newspaper The Guardian has taken five Windows Phone to the side to query them as to how they view the development process on Windows Phone and why they view the platform worthy of both time and effort. The results were extremely positive.

The five developers included 7digital (music service), Addison Lee (private taxi hire firm), IndieSkies (Kaleidobooth), Escapist Games (Star Chart), and Distinction (Weather Flow). The short conclusion drawn from the results was praise for the OS itself and how apps can be quickly prototyped and subsequently released. The only downside was the developers' restraint over download and sales figures.

We've previously looked at how the developer interest in Windows Phone has continues to remain at a high level, while the likes of RIM falls rapidly. So this shouldn't be too much of a surprise that established developers are singing praise for Microsoft. Head on past the break for more juicy details.

Looking for a basic weather forecast app? Take a look at the Windows Phone app Weather Flow. The app is from the developers of AppFlow and Cocktail Flow and is a visually appealing app that presents you with current conditions and a five day forecast.

Throw in an hourly forecast, two design layouts and an interesting live tile and Weather Flow is a basic, very nice looking weather app worth considering.
