    Ok, so I've probably used 20 weather apps by now, and am getting frustrated lol. The issue is they are either inaccurate, or the lack a GPS LIVE TILE.

    Weather Master is my favorite, and has an amazing live tile that updates your location as you move around. BUT!!!! It is seriously like 7-10 degrees off every day.

    Most of the accurate weather apps have great live tiles, but you have to manually go into the app, find your new location, and then pin a new tile.


    Is there an accurate weather app with a tile that updates your location via gps automatically?

    If weather master was accurate it would be perfect, but its not. And the developer seems to have abandoned the project.

    I've been using WeatherLive lately. It has been working well. It seems that these weather apps break from time to time, so I have a few installed. I rotate them out as I see fit.

    Another vote for WeatherLive here. I tried Weather Master and liked it, but ended up uninstalling for the same reason, inaccurate temperatures.

    WeatherLive has a location-based tile that updates every hour and it uses Wunderground as a source for its weather data. I was already a fan of Wunderground so I'm pretty happy with WeatherLive.

    I've been using Weather View for a long time now. Weather data is accurate (at least for me), it has a gorgeous Metro design is free and has no adds. What else could you ask for?

    I second Weather View. Don't think it has live tile GPS function though. But it's by far the best looking weather app with quality coding as well.

    WeatherMaster, simple, clean UI, fast, and live tile is the best I've seen.

    i have had great luck with the gps on weather live and amazing weather. weather live seems to be more accurate, and seems to update the temp more frequently

    btw people, please read the first post before replying; he doesn't want your favorite weather app, he wants an accurate weather app that automatically updates the live tile location by gps

    Excellent. Let us know which ones provide proper GPS for you. So far, AmazingWeather hasn't failed me by GPS.

    What I think of when I hear live tile is that where ever i go, the live tile will have that city's weather on it. This is without manual intervention by me. I had it on Android, so was hoping to find it here. It's not a show stopper, but I think it would be there to make use of the Metro UI. Just my two cents worth.

    I didn't know weatherflow automatically updated your location via gps, without opening the app...I'll have to check it out.

    Try Poynt. It will show you the basic weather information for where you are located and has a Live Tile. I keep it and the Weather Channel pinned as I work 60 miles from home so it's nice being able to see and easily get to the weather/temp for both locations.

    I think the HTC Hub is the best weather app on WP. Sadly it's an OEM exclusive.

    Amazing Weather is pretty good and is probably the best out there that's nonexclusive to a brand
