Weatherbug has been a popular application for Windows Mobile and now it looks like it is on board for Windows Phone 7. In a recent interview over at Channel 9, Weatherbug developers talked about using Silverlight and Bing Maps with their mobile weather application.
Weatherbug uses both Microsoft products in their website development and is having success moving Weatherbug over to WP7. Developers see using Bing Maps and Silberlight offers them more detailed maps, easier code to transfer to WP7, and takes a lot of the worry out of developing these applications.
This is encouraging news to see a popular Windows Mobile developer transitioning to Windows Phone 7 with such ease. The only downside to the interview comes when Weatherbug demos their WP7 app and the video abruptly ends without showing anything.
