    George Ponder wrote us up a great review of some of the more popular weather apps

    You can read it at this link:

    Windows Phone Weather App Roundup | wpcentral | Windows Phone News, Forums, and Reviews

    I am wondering which is your favorite so hows about I take a pole. If I have left out your favorite post up and tell us what app and why.

    I've tried them all and still like the 'Weather Channel' app the best it loads fast and is nice and clear and displaying what you want. I also like it's Facebook integration.

    I like weather bug and Accuweather too although it's a bit 'Sticky' and slow at the moment.

    Nice though that we have such a variety to chose from. :)

    I voted for my beloved Weather Channel in the Poll. :)

    AccuWeather for me, the live tile works flawlessly and looks great and you can have up to 5 (I think) different locations stored and it just has some all round great features.

    I use one called Weather & Clock I never see it listed on the lists. I like it. I use the Weather channel for the live tile updates but if I check the weather I use the Weather & Clock app. Maybe it's an LG only app?

    Accuweather since it gives me the most accurate weather so far ( no pun intended ). But my favorite is LG's Weather and clock. I wish it had a live tile.

    TBS Your Weather. Excellent for UK users as it uses UK Met Office data. Nice Metro-style app too.

    Weather live is all that I need. Works great, updates properly, live tile functioning. Awesome weather app.

    thanks for the poll! I was using the very basic "Weather" app from Microsoft. Now that I know which one's are available and good, I will try out a few ;)

    I've been a huge fan of world weather, with it's dual tile and color changing. I really like Weather Live, but the temp and timestamp at the bottom of the live tile look a little sloppy now, what with the time stamp running off the tile if the temp gets above 100. Weatherman just got an update that contains about 20 different live tiles, I'm going to use it for awhile.

    Good to know there's more Weather and Clock fans in here. It's pretty darn accurate and is pretty.

    The new tiles are pretty great. One that is missing is a "now" temperature with a weather icon, but the dev said he added it and will be submitting an update as soon as possible...

    I'm using the now tile with the oversized temp, it's really growing on me

    I voted for the Weather Channel. I used Weather Duck for a while, but I like the WC live tile much more. I like to have lots of colors on my main screen.

    I'm happy with the look and feel of Accuweather, so that's my main app. I also use the Samsung Now app.

    The Weather Channel app has just updated (V1.5.1) and has a new Nearby photographic weather section (Iwitness Weather) and various other little changes. Nice. :)

    You can now look through a gallery of weather photographs in various categories.
    (IE Clouds, Floods, Lightning etc)

    I'm sort of at a toss up between The Weather Channel and Weather Live. The Weather Channel because it's the first one I had, so I'm used to it, and it has a lot of information and looks good. Weather Live because it actually seems to update on the schedule you set it as, where other live tiles sometimes seem to get stuck.

    I voted Accuweather. I paid for Weather Live but I just can't get used to that horrible Live Tile design. The icons are hideous and the temp, forecast and timestamp numbers are way too small. If Weather Live could get its' Live Tile to look half as good as Accuweathers' tile, that would be all I want in a weather app.

    The 4 weather apps i have installed (Weather Channel, Accuweather, Weatherbug & Weatherduck) all have working live tiles in Mango so they are still updating.

    No good whatsoever if you don't have mango, but they are still working as intended. (Operating System Version Permitting) ;)
