WPCentral number one app in news and weather

We're generally not the folk to brag, but the official WPCentral app that was released last week is currently the top app in the news and weather category. While we're on a roll, the app is shining with a four and a half star average rating. I'd like to say a big thank you on behalf of the entire team, it really does bring a tear to the eye seeing how much support there is from our readers.

A lot of time, effort and development went into the final product, but it has all been paid off with the positive reviews and feedback we've received. Improvements are being made and our Daniel Rubino showed the developer walkthrough of version 1.2 by Jay Bennett who explained some of the upcoming changes which have been requested. Be sure to check Jay's blog (opens in new tab) for more information, development and to leave feedback.

You can download our app (opens in new tab) (if you haven't done so already) in the Marketplace. Remember there is the option of the unlimited ad-supported trial with full functionality or if you wish to experience no advertising and believe the app is worth it then the paid version is a mere $0.99 (79p).

  • An excellent achievement in such a short time, congratulations. Well deserved for such a good app, i had no hesitatation in purchasing it after seeing the video review of the app just before its release.
  • I think this calls for an AWWWWWWW YEEAAHHHHHHHHH
  • To be fair, the trial doesn't give ALL the functionality that you get if you pay for the app.
  • I get they youre trying to turn a buck by selling an app, but I would prefer just wpcentral having a better website that is friendlier to smaller screens. I would take it free since wpcentral is still getting our traffic. Paid, no thanks.
  • Which is exactly why the free version is designed to give you the identical content as the mobile website does, just with an improved interface.
  • what's wrong with the website now? works fine on my phone..
  • I've been using the mobile version because I only get 2G here.
