Accuweather for Windows Phone 8 is now available in the Windows Phone store. The Windows Phone 8 version adds lockscreen integration and customizable live tile sizing to the already impressive list of Accuweather features.
Lockscreen integration provides current conditions from your default location and an weather image illustrating the current conditions. While it would have been nice to have seen more options (e.g. extended forecast) it's a start.
The large live tile size for Accuweather will display current conditions and the forecast for the day.
Additional features for Accuweather include support for five locations, animated weather radar, severe weather notifications, weather videos, lifestyle forecasts as well as your weather conditions and forecasts. We have yet to see the Windows Phone 8 features come to the Accuweather version offered by Nokia for the Lumia Windows Phone.
All totaled, the Windows Phone 8 version of Accuweather improves things. We would have liked to have seen more options with live tiles and lockscreen integration but, again, it's a start.
Accuweather is a free app for your Windows Phone 8 device and you can find it here at the Windows Phone Store.
Thanks, Mark, for the tip!
