The Weather Channel is a very popular weather source for many Windows Phone users, and today TWC has released a major update to their free app in the Windows Phone Store.
The app has been fully redesign to match the experience the company offers on iOS and Android platforms. The redesign also comes with improved navigation and “Social Weather” that lets users report local weather conditions to improve forecasts. This feature also lets you upload weather-related photos from your phone and it keeps track of your submission history.
It’s wonderful to see a major media company such as The Weather Channel committed to Microsoft’s mobile platform. With Windows 10 just around the corner, we certainly hope to see more from the world’s #1 weather provider.
Here is the full list of changes this update (2015.204.732.3042) brings:
– Complete redesign: More beautiful & easy-to-use.
– Social Weather: Report your weather conditions to us! We’ll use the information to improve the forecast & map out what others are reporting or tracking in your area. Plus, your report will be added to your personalized weather history, so you can track your past reports. To complete your report, remember to take a photo and share it with your friends.
– Seasonal tools: Hurricane Central, Airport delays, pollen counts, and boat & beach planner
– Improved navigation: swiping right to left allows you to browse your saved locations, whereas the detailed forecasts and stories can be viewed by swiping up and down.
