Earlier this month we had a little contest to help rename Weather+ to OneWeather. Unfortunately, the developer was unable to use that name due to another weather app named 1Weather. The app will instead be called 4castr. It’s now available in the Windows Phone Store and brings new features to the table.

4castr is now at version 1.4. The updated weather app brings the following changes in the most recent version:

  • Weather data is now cached to reduce loading time, voice command response time, and improve navigation
  • 72 Hour Pro trial for free users wishing to try Pro features
  • Option to share the current weather conditions on Facebook and Twitter
  • Option to only send a toast notification for certain alerts (U.S. only)
  • Better app bar organization
  • Improved animation smoothness
  • Improved tutorial
  • Smarter use of API
  • General bug fixes and improvements


We’ve been fans of the app since it first launched on the Windows Phone Store and we’re still digging all the gestures in the app. The new ability to trial the Pro features is a great move and should help a few of you figure out if you want to shell out cash for this weather app.

Interested? You can grab 4castr in the Windows Phone Store. The app is free, but by going Pro ($1.99) you get Live tile support, customizable weather icons, alert Toast notifications and 16 app themes.
