Weatherbug now live in WP7 Marketplace, offers push notifications

Hot on the heels of the WeatherChannel's new WP7 app comes rival WeatherBug (see video demo here for WP7). Not too much is given in the way of screenshots, except what we see above, but it looks like it will be a winner for its complete feature set. We know we've always liked Weatherbug on Windows Mobile and we're happy to see to them offer the same functionality on our new OS.

Bonus features include:

  • Weather info on the Start screen (Live tile)
  • Push notifications for weather alerts (nice)
  • Nine (!) weather map layers using Bing maps
  • 7 day, hourly and detailed forecasts
  • Enhanced current conditions

No word if they will have the ~$1.99 "Elite" version which throws a few more features in as well as removes those banner ads--but we sure hope they do.
