Phototag has just been updated with a couple more themes to add information overlay for your photos. Version 1.3 now has a total of six overlay themes: Place, Weather, Food, Baby, Speedometer, and Date+Time. The latest version also brings localization updates, wide tile support, and availability for Windows Phone 7.5 devices.

Phototag is only 2 months old at the Windows Phone Store. We’re following it closely because we’re big fans! It's handy for documenting captured moments on the photo itself and sharing the photo with others. The UI is minimal with bold colors good-looking typography. The swiping gestures also feel like this app is made specifically for Windows Phone.

Weather Hound is a simple Windows Phone 8 weather app that delivers the forecast basics to your phone.  The app has a clean, minimalistic appearance and comes across as an appealing choice to consider for those wanting a basic weather app.

Weather Hound was updated today to version 1.1, which most notably adds a trial version for the app.  The update also adds support for a solid color lockscreen and a description to the unit choices in the apps settings to make things a little understandable.

Another week here at Windows Phone Central and another Windows Phone weather app has caught our attention.  This week, it is the Windows Phone 8 weather app Weather Hound.

Weather Hound is a simple weather app that delivers the basics along with Live Tile and lockscreen support.  There is not a lot of flash to Weather Hound but it covers the core weather information rather nicely.

Windows Phone Central App and Game Roundup: Zombies Games meet Weather Apps

Three categories of Windows Phone titles come to mind as having the strongest presence in the Windows Phone Store; Zombie games, Weather apps, and Photography apps.  These groups seem to multiply faster than bunnies or flashlight apps.  Fortunately, while some may see these categories as over saturated, it's crowded with quality titles.  Which is never a bad thing.

In this week's Windows Phone Central Roundup, we focus on two of these categories, Zombies and Weather titles (we'll pick on the photography apps on down the road).  The Zombie titles in the roundup are some of our favorite titles that have been covered through the years.  The weather apps aren't heavyweight apps like the Weather Channel or Accuweather but they do a good job of keeping us up to date with what Mother Nature has in store.

Amazing Weather HD is one of our favorite Windows Phone weather apps and the Windows Phone 8 version just got updated.

The update mainly fine tunes Amazing Weather HD by providing better support for Meteoalarm.eu, adding new Simplified Chinese and Hungarian languages, fixes lock screen updates that weren't matching the weather and added optional usage stats.

Improved support for Meteoalarm.eu will give our European readers more reliable severe weather alerts. The reporting of usage stats is optional and can be turned off in Amazing Weather HD's settings.

While the weather app collection for our Windows Phone is rather crowded, Just Weather is one of the latest offerings for Windows Phone 8. The simplistic, minimalistic weather app has potential but also has some room for improvement.

The intent is to deliver the basic weather information for two locations. Which is what you get but in using Just Weather, it felt like it was more of a work in progress than a finished product.

If you're looking to get more out of your Windows Phone 8 lockscreen, take a look at AwesomeLock. It's a simple, straight forward lockscreen app that delivers news, weather and upcoming appointments to your lockscreen.

AwesomeLock also delivers Bing daily pictures or you can tap into your Pictures Hub and use one of your own images for the lockscreen wallpaper.  The app makes a nice first impression and likely is only held back by the lack of a trial version.

Weather Radar Tile is an interesting Windows Phone 8 weather app that not only allows you to access weather forecasts and radar, but also pin a radar tile to your Windows Phone Start Screen.  The radar Live Tiles are not animated but do update periodically to give you a snap shot of what's headed your way. Weather forecasts and radar are provided through the National Weather Service and locations are U.S. only.

Weather Radar Tile isn't a bad Windows Phone 8 app but navigation isn't the smoothest. The app is worth a try but may not appeal to everyone.

Amazing Weather HD is one of our favorite weather apps for Windows Phone. The app is available for both Windows Phone 7.x and 8 devices and was updated to version 4.2.2.2 earlier today to add a few new features and fix a few bugs.

The most notable fix corrects the bug that caused lockscreen updates to not match the weather information. You also have Simplified Chines and Hungarian languages added and a optional usage data setting.

We’ve covered plenty of weather apps over the years here. Everyone has their favorite and Windows Phone has a handful of great apps to choose from to suit your needs and tastes. We first looked at Weather Smiles a little over a year ago when it launched. A few months later it was updated with all the Windows Phone 8 features you’d want. It’s picked up a few updates over the past few months. The most recent a few days ago. Let’s check it out.

On Windows Phone, we have plenty of photo tagging apps like Ciel or InstaWeather Pro to document your travels or life in general. These apps vary in functionality but they often center around the idea of placing an overlay with data, including weather or your location, over a square photo. You can then post them to Facebook, Instagram, etc. We recently did that when we were down in Florida earlier this week.

Developer Jason Ong has a new app out called Phototag. We’ve covered his work before in the highly rated Audiocloud app and Phototag is just as stunning and useful. For one, the UI is striking—it’s minimal but bold and easy to navigate. Second, Phototag allows you to also stamp baby or food info in addition to the typical weather and location information. More categories are forthcoming too.

What else is there? Read on to find out in our mini-review.

Umbrella 8 is a unique and eye-catching Windows Phone 8 weather app that has a lot going for it. The app throws a lot of weather information your way and includes Flickr integration to spice up the background images.

However, while the design is appealing you have a reoccurring error and the navigation isn't as smooth as it could be. Still Umbrella 8 is an attractive weather app worth trying and has a ton of potential.

Weather Planet is a fairly recent addition to the weather app line-up over in the Windows Phone Store. Available for both Windows Phone 8 and 7.x devices, Weather Planet has some interesting features and a visually appealing main page.

While Weather Planet makes a snazzy first impression some may find the user interface a little cumbersome. The weather app has potential but I couldn't help but think things could be a little more fluid.

Daily Dashboard is a Windows Phone 8 app that is part calendar and part daily assistant. It offers easy access to your calendar appointments, birthdays, weather forecasts, Windows Phone details (battery level, available memory, etc.) and any alarms you have set. Designed for efficiency to give you a snapshot of what's going on in your life, the app has multiple views with a Home Page that sums up what's going on.

Daily Dashboard may be too busy for some but if you're looking for a one stop solution to keep tabs on your daily life, it is worth a gander.
