    I like how the HTC app allows you to use the lock screen for displaying weather. Has anyone found a weather app has that functionality for other phones (Samsung, Nokia, etc)?

    They should definitely add lock screen support on the Nokia Weather app. I saw it in the review, but I don't see it on my Lumia 920. I'm pretty sure it was a Lumia 920 that they used on the CNET review.

    Look in your lock sscreen settings. I believe it's called 'HTC' under the background drop down.

    It's an HTC feature. You won't find it in the Lumia. It certainly isn't something that 'needs to be addressed.'

    I actually sent them an email today using the feedback link from within the app. If I get a response, I'll post it here.

    Would be nice to have a app provide this feature. Something I do miss, I would like to hit the power button and see my day including weather at a glance.

    You can follow the instructions here:
    Add a weather forecast event to iCal | Macworld
    to add weather feed to your hotmail calendar and then sync it with your phone.
    Then weather info will appear in the lock screen as event...
    (I know it told how to add to iCal. But it's almost the same to add to hotmail calendar)

    Weather Flow is the best app for lockscreen weather. I think it sucks for a full-on weather app (imho, weatherbug is best there) but I bought it just for its lock screen features.

    accuweather provides a lot of info on the lockscreen, as well as changing your lockscreen background to the current weather forecast

    FYI - The lockscreen's 'on' or 'timeout' is adjustable at Settings|Lockscreen|Screen times out after: 30 sec/1min/3min/5min

    You might need to flick up in order to scroll down to see the 'Screen times out' option.

    I just want Weatherflow to allow a subset of user defined images (i.e. combine Paper Shuffle and Weatherflow lockscreens)...

    I have an HTC, so I'm assuming it's the official Accuweather app..not the Nokia version

    Do any of these Weather Apps support Home Tile AND CURRENT location? I had that on my Android and was wondering if any of these apps did that.
