    If you want to make this a serious weather app and not just one of many that tells you the weather then you need to include Level2 radar data and the TDWR stations as well. I would gladly pay for an app that gives me all the Level2 radar data that is available on a clean and adjustable UI.
    Upon doing some more research, TDWR stations won't be there at release. This does not eliminate the option of it coming later.

    A quick question... what's the difference between the trial and full? Maybe toy can remove some features and unlock them in the full version... you might also want to submit this app for review here at WPCentral for more downloads.

    Forecast.io integration is 70% complete, those images are slightly outdated.

    Not exactly sure yet but most likely:
    Trial:
    - no radar (or map fixed to example location)
    - no minutely forecast
    - no sunrise/sunset
    - nag screen upon opening

    Absolutely no advertisements at all.

    And I will submit it after it gets to a finished state.

    Also cards have been spaced out.

    Looks nice, those will be in the app.

    Edit: used a few of those ones from iconfinder.

    Most likely, but I don't know if any live tile customization will be there in 1.0

    Edit: When displaying the logo, yes.

    What's the release date for this app? I would suggest you to release this app first ( if not done already) and then improvise it. :)

    My API automatically translates most strings, but there are a few things that still need manual translation. What languages can you translate to?

    Ok. I'll have to put in the code/backed required to support multiple languages. I'll pm you if/when I do this.

    A few images of the early builds of the live tile (Wide not shown as it is still heavily WIP)
    Note that it may look done, but it does not yet update.

    Of course, it fully supports 8.1 in that it supports background images and live accent color updating (You don't have to relaunch the app for a new accent color or background, for example, to take affect on this tile)

    Thank you. I have been working on optimization and the tile at the moment, all of which are going very well. There will be a beta because performance, features, and usability are my top priorities. Any bugs are going to be fixed pre-release. Also implemented a whole new tile engine that uses usercontrols (XAML) to generate transparent PNGs. This allows me to run a background agent on less RAM and create better tiles, meaning 7.8 support may be a possibility.

    Using my new tile engine that I discussed earlier, I implemented a new version of the live tile which is now working! Background agent seems to be very stable and is updating every thirty minutes, give or take. Added some translucency and shading to make it visible and more readable against other tiles.

    -Posting lock screen images tomorrow or later, that's still WIP and is actually throwing errors.
    -Tile customization and lock screen customization won't be in 1.0, but you will be able to set the background color of the app from the accent color to shades of black to match the rest of the OS.

    I have been following this thread since its beginning. So excited for the beta, I am very apt for finding UI inconsistencies on HD devices like my 1520.

    Live tile looks fantastic. UI is incredible. The forecast.io integration is the killer here, though. Keep up the great work and thank you for developing for Windows Phone!
