Update: You can download v1.2 in the Marketplace right now. V1.3 is pending approval.

This should brighten everyone's day, even if it is rainy where you are. 'Weather Live', one of the most popular weather apps in the Marketplace, should be returning within the next few days, pending Marketplace approval.

To refresh, 'Weather Live' came out a few weeks ago, we covered it and you folks agreed that it was pretty great as it skyrocketed to the #1 Weather app in the Marketplace. It was then pulled by the developer due to issues with the weather feed--specifically it was from Google and they were cutting off some access. In order to prevent mass outages from new users, the developer pulled it until further notice.

Since then, the developer has found a workaround for the back-end, meaning that should not be an issue any longer. In addition, new features are on board--many of which have been requested by you:

  • Location/city name based on GPS coordinates
  • Live Tile customizations

The first fixes the issue whereby you just had geo-coordinates instead of a city name. This gives users piece of mind that the app has the correct location. The second will allow people to set 12/24 hr time and turn on/off time stamp, temp range and temperature scale--giving you much more control over the look. Most excellent.

Check the updated screenshots to get an idea. We'll keep you posted when it's live in the Marketplace!
