    The app has a clean UI... but perhaps "too clean". We could use some options, such as to change from English to metric or Fahrenheit to Celsius, to disable/enable the background image, toast notifications, etc. Also, the live tile could be improved.

    I liked the charts and graphs, though. Just add customization options (the spirit of the Windows Phone experience) would push your app several notches higher. I'm keeping your app installed (along with ~20 other weather apps), but I would have to disable it from running in the background and unpin it from the start screen for now.

    Thanks for the feedback. Regarding units, you can change those - there's a button on the bottom of the favorites panel to do just that ;) But I'll look into all else and try to improve.

    Oooh... I found it (silly me), just had to swipe to the left. Perhaps a one-time-only mini-tutorial for first time users on the basic features and a walk through the app might be helpful. I'll pin it to my start screen and observe. Thanks for your response.

    It seems that your app isn't automatically tracking location in the background... I'll observe this further.

    The graphs will be easier to interpret if the x-axis was in intervals of 6 or 12 hours rather than 9 hours.

    Update: The app is indeed not tracking/updating the location automatically in the background for the live tile, but the location is automatically updated as soon as I launch the app. The weather information, on the other hand, is always automatically updated in the background. The location detail/name/resolution is good.
