Weather Smiles updated with support for wide tiles, more Lock screen support and a price drop

We’ve covered plenty of weather apps over the years here. Everyone has their favorite and Windows Phone has a handful of great apps to choose from to suit your needs and tastes. We first looked at Weather Smiles a little over a year ago when it launched. A few months later it was updated with all the Windows Phone 8 features you’d want. It’s picked up a few updates over the past few months. The most recent a few days ago. Let’s check it out.

It’s been awhile since we’ve covered Weather Smiles. Since we last talked about the app it has gained a dark theme, various new tile options, and other under the hood tweaks. Here’s what new in the latest v2.5.0 update from a few days ago:

  • Updated forecast on tile to show next 3 days excluding today when 3 day is used and observation time is afternoon.
  • New large tile flips and displays full data on each side when dual tile is enabled.
  • New can now set detailed status on lockscreen to get temperature, location and conditions of current location.
  • Aesthetic changes to live tile, and enabled phone status bar.

We’re always trying out new weather apps on Windows Phone. There are plenty out there and it’s one of those situations where you’ve got different strokes for different folks. Haven’t found a weather app you like yet? Give Weather Smiles a try. There’s a free trial and the price has recently been dropped to $1.49. Weather Smiles has some nice Lock screen and double wide tile support, which is a must in any weather app.
