Atmosphere is a strikingly Modern weather app for Windows Phone

158

Weather apps. Windows Phone has no shortage of them, possibly due to their frequency of use as well as the ability to work with specific data. Regardless, I am always excited to see new ones join the flock, especially if they embrace the Modern design language from Microsoft.

Atmosphere is a wonderfully designed weather app for Windows Phone 8 that has enough features to keep most forecast fans content. The design of Atmosphere is probably its main feature, as it is bold, clean and easy to read. Likewise with the Live Tile, which has one of the better layouts I have seen.

Lumsing Ultrathin Keyboard review – a tiny universal keyboard for Windows 8 and more

49

Microsoft's Surface tablets have multiple great first-party keyboards to choose from.

A few months ago we reviewed one such keyboard for tablets, the MiniSuit BluBoard. Now we're back with a look at the Lumsing Ultrathin Wireless Keyboard, which works with Windows 8 and RT, Android, and iOS devices.

We'll walk you through its ins and outs as well as the unwieldy Windows 8 Bluetooth setup process.
