Agreed, I bought weather flow because I like the lockscreen functionality. If I need more detailed info at the moment, I have accuweather or weather channel also installed. And eizsoft and team were pretty quick in answering my question i emailed them, especially for developers, which was appreciated.
The one comment I would put forward as a possible improvement for the app is maybe have the app weather lockscreens it cycles thru be season related. But this would just be icing on the cake for a beautiful app.

I prefer the simplicity of Weather Flow, though I also have The Weather Channel as well since WF doesn't include radar. I was also a little off-put that Amazing Weather HD is 80MB app, which seems a bit much for just wanting a forecast.

I'm a little late to this thread, but I have been VERY impressed with Weather Flow. My Weather HD live tile never worked, whereas my Weather Flow live tile provides all of the information I could need. Weather Flow does not provide radar info, so I use the Weather app from Nokia for that if I want, but IMHO, the WeatherFlow app provides the perfect Heads Up Display to get the information you want just looking at your start screen. Add to that the lock screen compatability and it is my weather app. (Plus I love that I can keep the Bing picture as my lock screen). Here's what I get from the app:

Weather Flow is good for providing the lockscreen view and that's it. For actual use, the Weatherbug app is by far the best and most inituitive. On most of these weather apps, you can't even see the percent chance of rain 3 days out. That's basic functionality for a weather app. Weatherbug has everything and the UI is very well thought out. But Weather Flow is a must-have for the lockscreen alone.

I have Amazing Weather HD and Weather Flow both on my phone now. I tired Weather Flow before and didn't find it to be everything I wanted, but with the sale, I figured, why not?
I do have a few questions/comments about Weather Flow.
Does the Wide Live Tile not flip? - I actually don't mind that it is static.
I don't see anywhere to get more detailed weather information...is it just not there? For example, a written description of the weather or a radar?
I think what I am missing the most is the chance of rain percentage on the five day forcast.
Also...hopefully this can be fixed - When I open the app the weather does not update. I have to click refresh to get it to update. Is this accurate? Maybe I am just used to AWHD.

The wide live tile is static and does not flip.
There is no more detailed weather information. What you see is what you get.
When you open the app, the weather should update automatically. You should not have to click refresh. Maybe try reinstalling the app.
I have both apps too, but I think I prefer AWHD since it provides a lot more weather info.

I have been comparing both live tiles over the past few days. They both use the same weather service, so the temps have been identical. The weather flow live tile doesn't seem to update correctly for me all of the time though. The temp on WF tile will show 72 and the temp on AW tile will show 70. When I open WF the temp in the app shows 70. When I exit out, the live tile still shows 72.
WF also doesn't seem to grab my location on the live tile all of the time even though it shows it was updated.
The thing is, I think I like the look of WF life tile better. It's just not as reliable for me.

I can have AM and WF setup to update the live tiles at the same time (they both use Weather Underground) and AM live tile will show one temp and WF will show a different. For example WF showed 51 and AM showed 58. I opened (clicked the tile) for each one and AM showed 58 and WF showed 58. But when I exit out and look at the live tiles, WF still shows 51.
I am actually a bit disappointed in WF's live tile updating correctly. Also with AW when I open the app, the live tile updates.
Like I said, I really want to use WF for the live tile and AM for detailed information and lockscreen.

Here is an example of the live tile on WF. My time was 1:18 and the app showed it was updated at 1:17 with a temp of 73...but wait, it shows a different temp then Amazing Weather's live tile, 71. I know this can happen with the tiles not updating at the same time, I get that. But...when I open Weather Flow (the live tile just updated) the temp shows 71 not 73! Why? It just updated the live tile 1 minute ago. Weather Underground's website shows a temp of 70.6, which for these apps is 71. It has not reached 73 here all day yet...but the live tile for WF thinks it has.
