Best Windows 8 Apps
25 February 2015
I really prefer the free weather apps, even with their annoying ads. There's the usual information in this app, not necessarily presented as I prefer but the info is there, somewhere. You might have to spend a moment or two wondering how a chart should be interpreted for example. And the maps just don't cut it. The satellite animation is nice but the color coded maps such as radar only show shades of one or two colors which make it difficult to distinguish rain from snow. They seem to only indicate intensity, not precipitation type. If you want to see beyond your immediate region you're out of luck. The radar map cannot be scrolled or zoomed. How can you see more detailed maps? Why send them some more money, of course! Some of the free apps are much more generous and that's a shame because the MeteoGroup is one of the most reliable forecasters around.

Auf iOS ok und informativ. Auf Windows, oh Graus. Liebe Leute, was soll das. Die "Premium Subsciption" macht es leider auch keinen Unterschied.
Das könnt ihr bestimmt besser.

I regret this purchase.

Fonctionne bien, très pratique pour visualiser l'évolution des courbes de température.

This is a horrible app. If I could get my money back I would. It is not intuitive at all. Cannot change cities in any easily understood way.
Is mostly for European cities. no way to make it local that I can see.
save yourself and don't bother.

Website leads you to believe they have active tiles. They don't! Difficult app to figure out regarding configuration. Wish I could get a refund!

Sometimes it just doesn´t start (starts, but immediately exits).
Once it locked win 8 completely. Couldn´t close it, get back to start screen or anything. Had to shut off the PC.

ı like it... Accurate weather information...
Possibly a good app, if only I could figure out how to use it. Absolutely no instructions came with the app. I feel it was a complete waste of money.

Far inferior in all respects to the iPad app!

Great Info. Clumsy, staid GUI. Not fully Win8 App-compatible. Not worth the price

Seems to have limited options to configure. No live tile option.

I couldn't change the default city from Berlin. The tile can't be made bigger and doesn't show the temp (since it shows Berlin and I don't live there I guess that doesn't matter.) I wasn't able to add a city, when you select to do so it "searches" the app??? I do not have a touch screen and am wondering if that is why I can't control any of the settings. So I uninstalled and ate about 3 bucks - moving on now...

However, it does look better in Windows

I can not find anywhere to add cities or change maps, do not waste your money

This may be a great app if you live in Berlin, there is no ability to modify the default 4 cities. ONLY delete the first 3.
Completely wasted my$3.50.
I am seriously disappointed in the Microsoft App store. If this is an example of what's in the MS App Store

This app is horrible. Doesn't let you change to your own locale
1 November 2012
This App is not user friendly
Unable to change to my location!!!
30 October 2012
Cannot change location to my location!
May be spoiled by my iPhone weather apps. This was hard to set default city (search, enter city, set as default). Graphics not great, no severe weather warning.

I find the radar colors to be off for the USA. Setting a city is cumbersome but not to horrible. News should be changeable (being a US citizen, I really don't care about other country weather).
5 stars if the radar was more US colors like, city was easier to set as default and did I mention the radar?
Cannot add any cities at all.
Finally found out how to add other cities. Not to bad of an app feature wise.

Nice looking app. Choosing a local city was not immediately obvious although this is more due to being unfamiliar with the rules of Win 8 ("Search" charm when in the app and look for your local city. Choose the star and then back in the main screen, right click on it and set as default city). Needed improvements - Less news about cities I don't care about. Easier access to local radar.
