Update rolling out for Appy Weather, adds severe weather notifications

19

Appy Weather is a somewhat modest Windows Phone weather app that delivers the forecast with a slight personal tone. It presents the forecast conditions in your traditional sense but adds how the expected conditions will compare with the current. The minimalistic design looks good and while there are some features we'd like to see added, Appy Weather does a very nice job of things.

The Windows Phone app has seen a flurry of updates over the past months that have added new features and customizations to the mix. The most recent update pushed out this morning sending the weather app to version 1.3. The version 1.3 update for Appy Weather most notably adds the ability to re-organize the settings menu, more options for notifications, and severe weather alert notifications.

Poll: Did you install the new Windows 10 Technical Preview?

241

One of the many new parts to Windows 10 is the Store. In the latest Technical Preview we get a first look at the redesign. Functionally it's basically the same as the existing Windows 8.1 Store at the moment but with a substantial visual overhaul. Gone is the green and in its place comes flat gray tones.
