Weather Smiles for Windows Phone temporarily available for free

You'll be smiling when it's sunny

The developer of Weather Smiles has made the app available for free for a limited time, according to the Marketplace listing. The app enables Windows Phone owners to keep up-to-date on weather forecasts and has the unique feature of sporting two locations on a single tile - as opposed to one weather reading seen in most weather apps. It's a unique twist with smilies being deployed to add humour to condition reports.

As mentioned above the Live Tile for Weather Smiles is pretty special as it displays both the current and 'home town' location weather reports along with a five-day forecast. A smilie is also present, which varies depending on what conditions are present. The 'home town' can be configured in the settings with city and zip codes supported for added convenience, and temperature can be altered between Celsius and Fahrenheit.

The app sports a well presented interface with a heavy Metro Windows 8 influence and settings for background processes and location can be configured to the user's preference.

You can download Weather Smiles from the Marketplace.
