We are absolutely loving the translucent Live tiles in Windows Phone 8.1. Don’t worry, we’re just as confused by how much we love this new feature. It’s one thing to see it leaked in videos recorded with a potato, but it’s another to actually use it. We’re not alone, a lot of you seem to love the feature and developers are moving to support the translucent tiles in their own applications. Looking for a weather app that plays by the translucent rules? Then check out the updated version of Vieather.
We last covered Vieather in early March when the app was updated to version 2.0 that brought a new weekly forecast. Today the app is sitting at version 220.127.116.11 in the Windows Phone Store with the following features:
- Translucent Live tile for Windows Phone 8.1
- Faster… Better… Important Update
We totally understand the translucent part of the changelog, but we’ll let you guys and gals find out what exactly “seems faster” in this version of Vieather.
Vieather is a beautiful weather app for Windows Phone. It’s free, with no advertisting and comes recommended from your friends at Windows Phone Central. Take the new translucent Live tile out for a spin and let us know what you think. Just a heads up, it took a couple of minutes for the tile itself to become translucent. Be patient.
Download Vieather from the Windows Phone Store.
Thanks for the tip Mike B!
