Version 2.5 of World Weather is now available in the marketplace.
Taking a page from the latest Windows Phone, Mango, in creating and designing live tiles to what best fits you; World Weather has given you the ability to customize your weather live tiles with features that no other weather app currently has: Create, customize, and expand your live tiles. You can change the background using the phones theme color, our â€œLiveâ€ background that changes 4 times a day, or any custom color you desire. Next you can choose from 1 of 4 sets of weather icons, and use one of our many style templates (new styles added automatically) to complete your design. Also included in this version, and has been enhanced in this version, is our dual tile feature. Now you can apply it to each city you have saved in you list. Because this version has been updated to Mango you can now pin any city to your start screen with â€œDeep Linkingâ€ to that city. We also have added a new â€œDefault Viewâ€ where you can choose between the normal default cityâ€™s current condition view or our new â€œTiles Viewâ€, which gives you quick access to all of your saved cities weather conditions.

All New Layoutâ€¦
For version 2.5 there has been a total revamp of the current conditions, hourly forecast, and 7 day forecast. Also an animated Radar, Satellite maps, Weather Cam images, and changes to the lunar information have been added. Leveraging on Mangos new APIâ€™s, the app now has â€œFollow Meâ€, which will update your live tile â€œMy Location Weatherâ€ every 30 minutes with your new location (all other locations follow your live tile update schedule within your app settings) . There has been added support for Severe Weather Alert Toast Notifications (with â€œDeep Linkingâ€), which will also check every 30 minutes and notify you of any new Weather Alerts (alert operational hours are customizable within your app setting).
