    Hi guys! So the app has very few active users and since mid October I see 0 usage in data. There's no point in releasing it if nobody is using it, so now it's free until I find a way to monetize it better. It's called "Meteo" and the name might change soon since I think it's too generic. It is very simple weather app, with map view for your favorite cities. Live tile is supported. I welcome any criticism/suggestion. Meteo | Windows Phone Apps+Games Store (United States)

    The server-side weather data is updated every 3 hours. I'm planning to change data provider soon to get hourly forecast.

    It has been quite a while since the last update. I've been busy with study and working on other apps. I finally found some time to think about this app. I'm working on lockscreen support and hourly forcast. Here's how it might look like.


    You can still download the current version for free on the WP Store. Please write some revies if you like it or have any suggestion. I only received 2 reviews after 9 months. A bit discouraging but understandable :). Meteo | Windows Phone Apps+Games Store (United States)

    The frequency of forecast is important but accuracy of the forecast is key. I have found that the sheer number and proximity of Personal Weather Stations | Weather Underground to one's location increases relevance of the forecast. Check it out. You may want to use their API.

    I would like to rename the app. Tell me if you guys have ideas that suit the look and feel of the app. Thanks!
