Back when the Nokia Lumia 925 was announced, we brought you an early look at Car App, a forthcoming app from Nokia that was enabled via NFC and used in conjunction with their wireless CR-200 car mount. The app provided the time, weather, battery life, quick call access and easy taps to HERE Drive + and Nokia Music. It was not only well done, but seemingly very useful for when you are otherwise occupied with driving.

The problem is, we never really saw that app materialize in the Nokia Collection. Well, as it turns out, it comes with the Nokia Accessories app (found under Settings) and is in fact, hidden. The app can evidently only be activated by scanning an NFC tag that is found on Nokia’s CR-200 car mount and is similar to the Desktop App that is only accessible by Nokia’s Qi chargers. That $100 car mount though is hard to find and let’s be honest, quite pricey.

Wead is a Windows Phone 8 app that lets you insert local weather information on to your photos. The app acts more like a plug-in, accessible through the edit menu when you view individual photos in the Pictures Hub.

Weave was updated today to version 2.0 and brings a new user interface and a sharing option to the table. The new user interface calls for you to enter your location then retrieve the current weather conditions. From there you choose your temperature units, font style and color then set your text position with the slider controls.

Wead for Windows Phone 8, add weather to your photos

Wead is a Windows Phone 8 app that acts more like a plug-in for your Pictures Hub than a stand alone photography application. In a nutshell, it allows you to label your images with the current weather.

If you launch Wead, all you'll be able to do is read the instructions and rate the app over in the Windows Phone Store. To use Wead, you'll need to pull up the image you want labeled, choose the edit option from the three-dot menu and then choose Wead from the list of editing apps.

Amazing Weather HD is simply an amazing Windows Phone weather app. Along with a nice level of weather coverage (forecasts, radar, satellite, etc.), the app also has support that pulls stunning HD weather images to your Windows Phone lockscreen.

Amazing Weather HD has been updated to version 4.2. We suspect a little fine tuning was done under the hood (the app seems to have a bit more zip to it), the most notable change with the update is with the lockscreen support.

Not only are there new HD images to rotate to your lockscreen but now you can use your own images as lockscreen wallpapers with the app's weather overlays.

Rain Alarm for your Windows Phone is a weather radar app that can alert you of rain or snow through push notifications.

The main view of Rain Alarm is your typical map with the latest weather service radar displayed. Radar imagery is animated and can be paused or refreshed with the control buttons at the bottom of the screen.

Rain Alarm is a fairly simple app but may come in handy if you want to avoid the wet stuff while traveling or just don't want to caught off guard.

Should you be interested in Meteorology, EMS, or be an avid storm chaser, you're options on Windows Phone are fairly limited. This could be about to change with the introduction of MRLevel3. The app is exclusively available on Windows Phone (oh, hello there Disqus) and is right up your street if you're into the weather (quite literally) in the US.

Ciel is a photography app for your Windows Phone 8 device similar to PhotoWeather Pro. It allows you to take a photo and place an overlay that will detail your current location, the current weather.  Additionally there is an assortment of lifestyle tags that you can apply to your photos.

The layout is a little more straight forward and you can choose between a weather/location or location overlay. Ciel lacks the photo editing features of PhotoWeather Pro and there was a stability issue present that really held this app back. Luckily, a recent update included fixes to make Ciel more stable.  

In the end while Ciel lacks photo editing, now that the stability issues have been resolved, it's a nice Windows Phone photography app.

Robocat is a mobile software developer from Copenhagen, Denmark that has mostly concentrated their efforts over on the iOS and Android platforms. One of their more popular apps is Thermo, a temperature app, that often confused users thinking the app turned their iPhone into a thermometer (even though the app description clearly states Thermo shows the current temperature outside).

This confusion sparked the idea with Robocat to develop a plug-in sensor, the Thermodo, that would turn your smartphone into a thermometer. The company needed funding to develop the hardware and tossed the concept over to Kickstarter and because of the success, Robocat has expanded the support for Windows Phone with the Thermo app in the works for our Windows Phone.

If there is one thing we know of our audience it’s that you embrace minimalist design ethic especially that of the Metro UI school of Microsoft. Indeed, this is one of the selling points of Windows Phone with its focus on design language, even for third-party apps.

Simply Weather is a new, free weather app for Windows Phone 8 and while it doesn’t pack a lot in features, it does look very sharp and we expect many of you to swoon over it due to its unique design. It’s somewhat reminiscent of Haze for iOS, though it’s clearly not a copycat.

Peep our video hands on and screenshots after the break...

Jaxbot over at Windows Phone Hacker as released a new app onto the Windows Phone 8 Store and it’s worth the $0.99 for it. The app is called LockWidgets 8 and allows users to add up to three information areas to their lockscreens, including current temperature, tomorrow’s  temp and battery life. Some detailed information is also included like estimated time left on the charge and if it is clear or rainy out.

Users can select the background image from Bing, NASA or their own images and include “weather effects”, which can add rain droplets and presumably other graphical changes to the background image.

Weather Wallpaper is a Windows Phone 8 app that, as the title suggests, lets you integrate your local weather information into your lockscreen wallpaper.

While other weather apps are out there that offer lockscreen support, Amazing Weather HD comes to mind, Weather Wallpaper gives you the option as to which wallpapers to use. You can use weather related images provided by Bing, Bing's image of the day or your own photo.

One aspect of fitness is dealing with the weather in a healthy and safe way. The Windows Phone app WeatherCare hopes to help you combat the elements in a healthy, safe manner by providing weather tips based on your current conditions.

Tips range from health related to clothing tips to driving tips. On rainy days you may get a tip to watch for slippery spots on the road or on sunny days with a high UV Index, tips to wear sunscreen for protection.

WeatherCare has potential and I like the concept, but the app still needs a little fine tuning.

In less than 24 hours a winter storm is expected to hit the Northeast United States. Big deal right? Nope, most meteorologists are already calling this one for the record books. Mostly because it is two wild storm systems that are going to combine into one apocalyptic blizzard. While Windows Phone Central can’t stop the impending snow, closed roads, and a weekend spent indoors – we certainly can help prepare you with some ‘winter storm’ apps.
