Bright Weather is a visually appealing Windows Phone 8 weather app that delivers everything from the current weather conditions to a five day forecast to moon phases to your Windows Phone.
Bright Weather was updated the other day to bring a handful of new features to the party that includes lockscreen support and a free trial mode. We were rather impressed with the Windows Phone 8 weather app and the updated version simply adds to Bright Weather's appeal.
The changes that are included in the version 1.1 update for Bright Weather include:
- Added lockscreen support with local picture and weather support
- Added trial mode to let you try things out before buying
- Added the capability to change the background of the weather
- Removing a city from you locations now removes the associated Live Tile
- A few cosmetic enhancements
- A few bug fixes
- Better French translations.
While you can use a local image for your lockscreen wallpaper, the weather information is one style. Your current condition, forecast city and five day forecast are nicely displayed center screen.
It's nice to see a trial version come into play to give everyone a chance to try things out before taking the plunge. You get all the functionality with ads and fake data used for the Live Tile and lockscreen features.
The full version of Bright Weather is currently running $1.49 and is available for Windows Phone 8 devices. You can pick your copy of Bright Weather up here in the Windows Phone Store.
