The Weather Channel gets a facelift

The Weather Channel app for Windows Phone 7 was updated today and recieved a major facelift. Along with a graphic wallpaper that reflects current conditions, the update brings Facebook and Email sharing to the app.

Version 1.4.0 has a cleaner appearance and load times appear to be improved as well. The App continues to provide access to mobile versions of the Weather Channel's Severe Weather Center and weather videos but the updated version drops the traffic cam access.

Locations can be entered by keyword, zip code or by using your Windows Phone's location services. The Weather Channel App still has a Live Tile and an animated radar with several display layers to choose from.  You still have that pesky ad banner up top but hey... it's a free app.

You can find your copy of The Weather Channel app here (opens Zune) at the Marketplace. Thanks, Dave, for the heads up!
