Australian weather & surf forecasts and observations using data from BOM, Weatherzone & Swellnet. Multiple double-sided live tiles! BOM (Bureau of Meteorology) forecast data is value added to by Weatherzone with greater detail available. This version is the full blown Windows Phone 8 version with lock screen support, wide live tiles, fast resume and much more. V2.1.3 has a fix for the live tiles and auto-refresh of data when you resume the app. Historic wind direction is shown on the current page. Each location being monitored can have it's own live tile .. wide, standard or small. Lock screen shows current observations and forecast. Note: the live tiles are updated as frequently as the locations observations are. eg. Many locations have their observations updated every 10 minutes - your live tile will also update every 10 minutes. Most other weather programs update every 30 minutes. Weather observations and forecasts cover over 2,000 locations throughout Australia. Surf forecasts and reports cover all states and include Swellnet's 30 plus locations. Marine forecasts cover all BOM forecast areas. High resolution rain radar is zoomable and pannable. Backgrounds are stored on phone to save bandwidth and download time. e: email@example.com t: twitter.com/WeatherAndSurf f: facebook.com/WeatherAndSurf
8/03/2014Nice app, but of late the rain radar has stopped updating, is stuck on same loop. Re-install didn't fix it, purchase didn't either. Please fix.

3/03/2014Best Aussie weather app I've used
15/02/2014Glad I tried this after sampling lots of other weather apps, real BOM data and very comprehensive. Beautifully implemented Metro interface, smooth, obvious and richly packed with useful info. Great developer support he cares about his app and is very responsive. Worth the money.
5/02/2014What a great app! Every weather station in Australia is available plus local forecasts. Easy to use!
3/02/2014How many stars for something that has to continually send error reports, won't update when I press the icon, or gives me the blank screen of death?? Had this app for a few months now and am really ready to uninstall. If it was a dog, I'd have it put down. Sick of it!! Nokia Lumia 820.......again
30/01/2014Generally ok, but three glaring bugs have not been fixed since my September purchase. 1. Go to each of the four 'extras' and you'll see the links to each disappear one by one. 2. No internet connection causes app to display 'Page Name', Redirecting' when app is launched. 3. In the evenings the live tile icon weather disappears and is replaced by one with a question mark. Get these fixed ASAP please. Buyers - consider these issues if you plan to buy the app.
15/01/2014Have tried other apps in past, but this is by far the best weather & surf app to date!
12/01/2014Fantastic app, what I've been looking for in a weather app, accurate BOM data
