    I love the app, generally I think it's great but here's a couple of suggestions:

    - I'd like to see wind speed on the live tile/lock screen...or at least an option to display it
    - The lock screen quite often gets stuck overnight so when I look at my phone in the morning yesterday's bing image is still there, it updates not long after I start using the phone (I do love how it gives me today's Bing image, not like the built in Bing lockscreen!)
    - I'm not sure what the weather source is but it seems to be quite inaccurate at times, for example, last week the lock screen/tile was showing it as 17C here (UK) when in fact it was about 9C!

    When choosing the double wide live tile with realistic theme, I'd like the back of it to show more detailed forecast. So far the only way to have forecast for the next few days shown on the tile is to choose the metro theme.

    It would be great to have the ability to set your own picture for the lock screen yet have the weather data displayed!

    Using your own picture for lockscreen with weather data, and animated radar would pretty much make this the perfect weather app.

    Hi there.

    Thanks for this!

    The biggest thing to me is the lack of animated radar. The radar that is there is nice, but having it live, and updating rapidly (5, not 10 or 15 minute increments) is important. I live in what is statistically the most likely place for tornadoes in the United States. As such, when a storm comes, everyone is looking to see where it is, what it looks like, and which direction it is going. Without a live radar, I cannot rely on the app during a storm and instead am forced to go online or use another app.

    The second thing is having more detailed forecasts available by clicking on an individual day when the app is opened.



    Thanks again!

    I would like to see the ability to add the current temp to one of the 5 quick status slots on the lock screen. I'm aware of a stand alone app that does this, but it would be nice to have it built into one app.

    Different live tiles for day and night instead of black background for all tiles. For example in the day it would be a sun on a blue background and at night a moon on a black background.

    Also, have the windchill or humidex values displayed more clearly

    I really dislike the little "i" on the left-hand corner. Have no idea why that's there - I would like an option to have it gone. Also, I would suggest having a few different images for "clear skies" and "sunny". I'd like to see some variety when it comes to that.

    Another problem I sometimes have: the live tile doesn't always update. Sometimes I have to fully open the app for it to update. But other than that I have no complaints!

    Looking forward to this weeks update with better looking live tiles. One of my favorite apps.

    I would also like to see the wind speed on the live tile and lock screen. Plus more detailed info, graphs, trends and radar support in Canada would be great

    Hi-res lockscreen images and weather info/iconography for higher res phones like the 920 and 8x. Right now its very low-res and blurry on those devices. For an example of what I'm talking about Weather Flow has hi-res lockscreen.

    24h clock and rethink the lock screen pictures. It's very weird to find a picture of anything green on my lock screen when it's -15 C outside and 1m of snow everywhere.

    gee, how about an accurate hourly forecast? I'm in Jacksonville, FL and the hourly update right now shows that this hour and the next several we should have a 60% chance of rain, despite the (accurate) current conditions page, which shows 75 and mostly sunny. I do like the look of the app and the way the radar is up to date.

    BTW, the weather channel app shows zero percent chance of rain for the next several hours. I think that one is more correct...

    Would also be nice to show an animated radar going back a few minutes or hours. It's nice to see what direction the storms are moving so you know if you are in the cross-hairs or not.

    I have honestly not found a weather app I can rely on. The weather channel one has a radar that's always a day or two old, useless. The one for Accu-weather has a format that I don't like, and I thought Amazing was going to be the one....

    The "i" is actually a "!" which signifies there is important weather alert notice(s) pending like incoming storm, wind notices, etc,.

    Love this app, and I'm excited to hear that there will be a refresh of the live tile images this week.

    My one quick/tiny suggestion is that when the forecast calls for "Chance of Thunderstorm," it's too much text on the medium-size tile and it looks all crazy. Is there a way to change it to "Chance of T-Storm"? Or is that not under your control?

    When I select "Show current location (GPS)" and pin the double-wide tiles, only some of them have that GPS/location marker. From the available wide tile options, I select the first (rich theme, use this as the front face of the tile) and fifth (metro theme, use this as the back face of the tile) options to create the wide tile on my start screen, and unfortunately neither of them have that marker. If the user could choose which tile he/she would like to have the marker on, that would be perfect. Thanks for the awesome app, btw!

    New to the WP7 version of the app. The weather station closest to my home has a long title. Wish there was a way to rename it to something like "Home". I don't see an animated radar. Would be nice to integrate something like "Rad Now" app.

    If I'm listening to a podcast and open the app, the podcast shuts off. Happens every time. Weird. Active radar would be nice. How about historical info (record high/low)
