    That looks good! I wonder if having the top and bottom of the recent places boxes be at the same levels as the top and bottom of the upcoming boxes might make it look cleaner?

    How about this? I'm working on this right now!

    Can you share which weather service you're using? Also can you share your opinion regarding that service? Like if you had to start over would you choose the same service or another? Thanks!

    If you head over to settings, there I have mentioned I am using OpenWeatherMap service. It's hard to tell if I would use the service again, because it's not that much accurate at my location. Actually no weather service is accurate at my location. But by the looks of the reviews, out of which 70% are 5 star, and people tell, it's fairly accurate so I would use it again. But, I'm gonna add more weather services to choose from in Strawberry Weather. For now 'Dark Sky' aka 'Forecast.io' and 'Weather Underground' are planned. But I'm a bit busy in college things as well I'll have to rework a lot of code to add these services, so it's taking some time! Can you tell me how is the current service in terms of accuracy at your location?

    Thanks for the response. I'm interested in adding a few weather features into my non-weather focused app and looking at options so your feedback is very helpful :)

    Regarding my area, OpenWeatherMap shows 17C and the MS Weather app shows 18C so I think close enough no one will notice. In terms on condition prediction (e.g. rain) it's not rained here in awhile so hard to tell you lol We have a drought at the moment here.

    I would like to know about that app of yours. Is it on the store? Also you can ask me anything, and I will help as much as I can! Don't hesitate! All the best and thanks for the praise!

    I'd suggest Dark Sky service, it has daily summary but detailed forecast is available only for 2 days. Depends on what you need, take a look!

    I have an auto-updating wallpaper/lockscreen app call Live Earth: Himawari 8 that gets full Earth images(at 1080p and 4k res) from a geo-synchronous satelite every 15mins. Thought it might be nice to add a small weather at a glance option in the corner. Maybe just for the current day or hour.

    Also thought about adding it to my Health app that visualizes data from MS Health Cloud. For this I was thinking of integrating with historical weather data? So users can see that they walk less when it rains or is very hot etc. Not super useful but kinda fun to look at? This is less likely since that's much more data to work with and this app is very new so my focus now is to finishing primary features like specific activity data (e.g. running, workouts).

    I'd suggest Dark Sky service, it has daily summary but detailed forecast is available only for 2 days. Depends on what you need, take a look!
    Thanks for the suggestion! I will look into it. Before the only two on my radar were OpenWeatherMap and WeatherUnderground. WeatherUnderground is too expensive for the type of minor add-on I'm considering and OpenWeatherMap isn't that much cheaper. Dark Sky is much more affordable :) so thanks!

    Strawberry Weather v1.4.46

    A lot has been improved with Strawberry Weather now!

    * A new UI, now more beautiful and elegant. Makes better use of the screen real estate to show the weather in a beautiful manner.

    * It's available on XBOX now. Though we can't test it, as we don't have one. So please provide feedback!

    * Some people had slow GPS lock problems after Anniversary Update and the issues have been solved now!

    * Better battery usage, which already was so minimal, has been decreased even more now! So, little to no battery usage in background!

    I am very sorry that we had promised am additional weather source via an update, but it has been taking so much time. Partly due to I am having my exams, and other personal things. I am a student and a learning developer, so, please bear with me. The additional weather source will be available really soon!

    Thank you all for using Strawberry Weather, it is now between first 15 searches in the store if you search for 'Weather'. Thank you for all the love! I will keep on updating it regardless of market-share!

    Great App! Being an amateur (from the etymology, not from the connotation) meteorologist, I've tried, installed and uninstalled countless weather apps. This is one of the apps that I keep for one important reason: it gives me notifications about the upcoming weather condition without even opening the app or looking at the live tile.

    I'd like, however, to see more frequent notifications or higher resolution weather information. Right now I'm getting weather information every three hours - not bad (some apps have data every 12 hours!), but there may be room for improvement.

    Keep it up!

    Hi, I'm working on adding another weather source for the same concern, but it involves a lot of coding, also icon packs needs to be tested, so it's taking time. Also, I am just learning programming. But it will be ready soon! Thank you for using Strawberry Weather!

    Not bad for someone who's "just learning programming"! I've attempted to study programming a few months back just so I could develop my own weather app with my specifications, but other things came up so... I'm back to weather charts, models... and of course the apps that can be downloaded now - including yours.

    Looking forward!

    Why there is a note saying those who own true experience can enjoy dark sky service until Feb 1 2017?

    Any way to tap into Cortana to know my places I'm tracking weather wise so I don't have to keep setting it up?

    I know it's not that hard but with so many weather apps to try, it gets tedious :)
