Appy Weather, the popular Windows Phone Weather app, was just updated to version 1.3 with lots of changes and bug fixes.
- Re-organised the Settings screen into logical groupings for faster and more fluid access of the options available
- Added granular toast notification settings controls: 1) can now choose the frequency of notifications, either once before precipitation starts or every hour before and during precipitation and 2) can also now determine what the minimum probability of precipitation must be in order for you to be notified.
- Added quiet hours toast notification setting which allow you to mute notifications during specific hours.
- Now receive toast notifications for severe weather alerts.
- Can now set the live tile background to your phone’s opaque accent color; however, by default, the live tile will continue to use a transparent background.
- While a severe weather alert is active, the live tile’s background color will change to an opaque/translucent red (depending on the live tile background setting chosen); as soon as the weather alert is over, the background color will reset to your preferred option (transparent or phone accent).
- Fixed bug where the amount of snow expected in a day was showing as an incorrectly high number when you’d expand a day’s weather summary.
- Fixed another (hopefully last) instance of the issue stopping you from accessing the weather even though it can be viewed from behind the error prompt.
You can find the app in the Windows Phone Store here . It has a free trial, and you should definitely try it out.
