    Love the app, thank you! I read through this thread and I love your responsiveness to user feedback! :)

    Quick question - are you planning to offer custom images for the lock screen? You hinted to some coming changes but not sure if this was one of them... To clarify, I'd like to be able to pick which picture is used to overlay the forecast for use in the lock screen, instead of what comes with the app. I can give you an example of at least one app (that I currently use) that offers that, if you need more details (PM me, I don't want give them free publicity here ;-) )

    Thanks again and enjoy your vacation!

    P.S. +1 for point #2 in comment 123 above.
    Absolutely planned. Thank you.

    Hi - great start on this app..thank you...really like the UI. One question and a couple suggestions as may have already been suggested. Is there a way to have multiple tiles for each of my locations...seems to only be for the default location unless I am missing that option? Also I second..or one hundredth :) the request for a flip tile preferably with a daily or hourly graphic and or a radar screen grab if possible. I would be willing to pay extra as an IAP for the radar tile if necessary. Keep up the great work

    Forecast.io uses MPS, that means I have to use MPS.

    Flip tile is coming soon. There is no way to add a tile for another location.

    Just a question, isnt it possible to take the MPS from Forcast.io and make a formula that automatically converts it to KPH if requested by the User?

    Can't you just allow another location to be pinned?(It would really be helpful to see the weather of diff places strait from my Start Screen)...Thanks Alot

    No, other things are more important right now. The formula would probably also create bugs that I don't want to create right now.

    It's not that simple. Once again, other features are more important and highly requested.

    I don't normally post but this is a really nice app, by far the best looking weather app I've found and I'm picky about my weather apps. Your latest bugfix fixed the crashing issues on my US 1020 as well. :)

    I think TheMightyCraken was saying those would be nice features for the future, once you're back from your vacation, not right away. I've read through the thread and I'd like to add my support to a request for a flip tile, being able to swipe from the daily view back to the detailed breakdown of that day, and more iconography and detail on the lockscreen (kind of like on Weather Flow or Weather Hound) and throughout the app. I don't think I saw this mentioned, but being able to use Bing daily images by region with the ability to toggle on or off a gradient behind the weather information would be insanely useful. And maybe a color picker for the accents. Not right away of course, and I bet they're already in the pipeline; just food for thought in the future I suppose.

    Great, beautiful app especially for a 1.0. I'm impressed with your level of engagement and I followed you on twitter. Enjoy your vacation. :D

    The following is likely coming before vacation:
    - Back tile
    - Flip from page 3 to 1, 1 to 3
    - Possibly, custom backround images for lockscreen
    - Screenshot of radar for trial

    Everything else is scheduled afterwards.
    Thank you for sugguestions.

    I second this, If you probably double tap on the radar it would enlarge would be great.

    These would be awesome! Wanted to make some similar suggestions during the beta, but got really busy. My only other style thought would be to use a bit of the space on the right side of the "header." Perhaps a bug on the radar map for current location.

    Hi. I am very excited about this app!! I am starting to using just right now and already loving!
    Hope I can help translate it to Brazilian Portuguese.

    About the lockscreen, I can suggest:
    * Instagram feed fotos mosaic. Exactly the way the official app does, but with Forecast (I would pay the double for this!!);
    * Bing Image of the day, but with the option to select from wich country I want the images (all apps that I saw with this dont offer this option, instead just use the Bing US);
    * A option to show a image that reflects a weather change (shine from rainy as example). That image would appear during the 30 minutes after the weather change and after that the app would back to the selected image source. That would make the lockscreen a little more "dinamic";
    * A icon that reflects the current weather alongside with the temperature: this make easier to see it in a glance;
    * The "last updated" setence smaller and in the lower right corner of the screen. Is good to have this info in the screen, but the way it is now seams like this info have the same "value" that the other infos displayd, wich I dont think so.

    Have a working version of the updated live tile features and radar. Fullscreen radar is opened by tapping the map.

    1.1.1.3 Update submitted - providing live tile changes and a back tile which includes a five day forecast. All changes are exclusive to wide tile at this time. Timestamps now on back. Also, you can now tap the map to open radar.

    I really like the design of your app, its using the modern design language of Windows Phone. However, I would suggest some changes to the app with respect to certain aspects

    1. Please add weather images to the lock screen which depicts the current weather conditions (e.g. rainy, windy, sunny so on and so fourth. ) preferably with HD images (cause of 1080p devices) Which updates each time the weather data of the app is refreshed.
    2. the "Updated" time stamp on the lock screen is to big (I feel) perhaps you could make it a bit smaller and place it towards the right side of the screen instead of directly on top.
    3. A nice little weather icon (in the metro design language) on the lock screen on the left hand side wouldn't hurt, it would make it easier to read the info at a glance.

    Its really hard to find a weather app that has the ability to have weather images on the lock screen update periodically, the only one I found so far is the accuweather app (Its quite nice actually), even amazing weather HD doesn't have it.

    In5tigator if you can install these features would be very highly appreciated, I would even purchase the app then. (I really hope you incorporate these suggestions in your next app update)

    I logged in just to provide you with my honest opinion (though I am regular on this site I don't usually log in)
    Yeah, #1 and 3 are really wanted :) (numb 2 is done)

    Hi,

    Just installed your weather app, and as someone who dabbles in design, I have to say kudos!
    Wonderful example of what Modern/Metro design is all about :-)

    Just one little thing.... I set the units to Metric, and this is showing in the app and Live Tile, But NOT on the lock screen. There it still shows values in Imperial??

    Am I missing something, or is this a little bug? ;-)

    Cheers!!

    Rob

    p.s. sorry if this was already covered....

    Not a bug, just wait 30 minutes and you'll get the update via background agent. Updating lockscreen live in app proved to be too resource intensive.
