    I had Weather Flow for a while but it keeps missing updates on Live Tile and the Lock Screen. It refreshes when I open the app, sometimes keeps refreshing each hour (I set it to hourly) sometimes skips refreshes. Installed Amazing Weather HD, works just fine. Has no lockscreen support but I don't think it'll be long before it gets that.

    I have a tiny complaint :) Amazing weather live tile has some image compression artefacts. It's like it's composing a JPEG image for the tile and that shows around the text. Not a big deal though.

    Just purchased Weather Flow for the lock screen integration - it's nice to get a quick glance at the upcoming weather. But when I want more detailed info I also have Weather Channel since it's more accurate for my area.

    Get the app made by Nokia instead of Weather and the tile is high res.

I do wish I could customize the tile myself though.
    it actually shows the chances of rain on the live tile now😊

    I asure you weather flow shows that in the double side medium tile at least. The pic indeed doesn't show this, maybe it's because they updated the actually tile but left the instrbehinductions

    I just did the trial again. The double wide tile does not have the next 5 days rain percentage on there. Amazing weather does. Thanks.

    I actually Like the weather app the most. once inside of the app, I believe it gives you the most information.

    I use amazing weather for the large live tile and weather flow for the lock screen weather. Until I can get weather updates on the lockscreen with amazing weather I'll continue using weather flow for that.

    Are sure it is not something else? Quite the coincidence that both apps drain your battery.

    Are most people getting updates on their lock screen with Weather Flow? I have Weather Flow but the Lock Screen apparently never wants to refresh. It only does so after I launch the app and force a manual refresh. Kinda irking me.

    you check the update settings? I believe there is every 2 hours, every 6 hours, and manual update... sounds like you might have it on manual

    Yep, double checked the settings. I have it set for an update every hour. The live tile seems to be updating just fine. It's just the lock screen that won't update.

    For me it's AccuWeather, mainly because it has the best live tile. It's also quite feature-packed. It freezes sometimes though on WP8.

    So I've been using Weather Channel and not fully pleased. I also have tried Weather flow and thought about buying it cuz its better then the former. But the battery life thing is a problem I'd agree. Then based on the discussion I downloaded Amazing Weather and am blown away. Has everything I need but really need to allow music ur already playing when that animation option is on. Does anybody know about the battery drain with Amazing Weather?

    stormglass used to be the best (it's gone now) coz it tells you the weather of your current location and the choice of a fixed one, hope it comes back
