Amazing Weather HD updated, lockscreen support back on track

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.

The optional data usage setting is found in Amazing Weather HD's settings under the "general" page. When turned on, the app will collect anonymous usage data that can be used by the developer to better fine tune the app. If you would prefer not to have your usage data collection, just turn this option off.

If you're looking for a healthy weather app for your Windows Phone with impressive Live Tile and lockscreen support, Amazing Weather HD is worth looking into. There is a free trial version available with the full version running $1.99.

You can find Amazing Weather HD here in the Windows Phone Store. Again, it is available for both Windows Phone 7.x and 8 devices.

Thanks, everyone, for the tips!

  • Nice!
  • Love this app!
  • I love amazing weather, just hate that it doesn't match my locations actual weather. I've changed to Bing weather. I'm going to give this a shot again and see if the weather updates better this time around. jejeje
  • Same thing here. The temp is still off by several degrees.
  • Same. It would be nice to disable certain weather stations that give inaccurate information.
  • Yeah, I wish the Bing Weather app had all of Amazing Weather HD's features: wide live tile with 5-day forecast, lockscreen with 5-hour forecast. Amazing Weather HD has terrible data: it's usually inaccurate, slow to update, and the name is really quite silly (Amazing Weather HD? It sounds like my 4-year-old niece named it). But, alas, I will continue to use it till Bing Weather gets up to beat.
  • Whenever I launch this it turns off whatever song I have playing.  Not sure why.
  • You need to turn off the animations in settings that will sort it
  • so you have to have a static image in order to listen to music and use 'Amazing' weather HD? kinda removes the point of the 'amazing' part of the name if you have to do that :(
  • I don't often use it while listening to music, but if I have podcast paused and check the weather, the podcast is stopped and I have to go reopen it.
  • Go in to settings and disable in app animations. 
  • It doesn't have accurate weather for Dublin
  • Try Weather To-Go then, maybe that does...
  • Is this app available for Lumia 520 (512 MB)? Will buy mine saturday!
  • Yes, you can install this app on L520 :)
  • Looks like "Chinese" has been overly simplified to "Chines" :p.
  • If I see one more weather app I'm going to puke.
  • I know, right? It's like WP is a weather OS.
  • Like the app but the temp is always off by several degrees. Sticking with Bing Weather app
  • I use weather flow, love it.  Plus the weather seems really accurate!
  • I'm running the free trial version now and your right it seems to keep up with the weather; I run it side by side with Acuraweather and they both show the same thing. I just might buy it but I'm going to test Amaseing Weather first also.
  • I bought this app a while back when it was on sale.  I like it, but it's a bit too big (58MB) for a weather app.  Bing seems to hit the right spot for me.
  • I prefer Weather Flow! :P
  • update not available for WP7:(
  • I wish I could find a weather app that has a live weather lock screen like HTC for my Nokia.
  • Thanks a lot for the Article guys we just want to annaounce that the application is now available in China ONLY in a different app (XAP) with removed radar functionality due to regulations.

  • The authorities made you remove the radar? Wonder why..
    Love the app even though sometimes the tile doesn't update for 5-6 hours.
  • the best weather apps for me ever!
  • I installed the update at 8:22 am EST and it the live tile and lock screen still shows that time...it never updated hourly almost 12 hours later! That sucks. Was updating just fine before the update!
  • Its accurate for Sydney Australia. Not like Bing with is wildly inaccurate.
  • Still get different temps and times of update between the lock screen and the tile ... disappointing. Lockscreen temp is innacurate. Why does this stuff have to be so hard!?
