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.

V2.1.4 has a fix for the rain radar.

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.

    Probably the best Australian weather app.Only let down was the rain radar, which was stuck on an old loop. Dev was very responsive and fixed the next day, support good Aussie apps and buy it, highly recommended!

    Best app I've found for detailed weather and surf reports and forecasts in Australia. Just installed the update which has got the rain radar working.

    Great app, easy to use and provides all the data you could need. Developer says that they will be pushing through an update to fix the radar loop shortly and that a major UI upgrade will also follow. Should be published in the next couple of days.
