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: firstname.lastname@example.org t: twitter.com/WeatherAndSurf f: facebook.com/WeatherAndSurf
12/12/2013Temperature for my location in Australia is correct. But the background flickers with some greenish colour very briefly when I scroll down/up/across. Would be good if this can be fixed.
30/11/2013Great app for BOM weather - I really hope the developer will continue to support and improve it
22/11/2013The more I explore this app, the more I love it! Australian accuracy and a rapid touch friendly map are two stand out features. The full detail of a large tile and the flip side make this so informative. If one side had a weather sensitive still or even video graphic background, it would be perfect!
12/11/2013Finally, an accurate weather for app for Australians. My only criticism is that I would like to be able to choose Bing Daily for the lock screen, and better live tile support.
5/11/2013Good that this version links straight to the surf page. Bad that the surf app has lost the daily photo and doesn't seem to have any text for forecast days. Miss the pithy comments from before, please fix
26/10/2013Very good but description is a little misleading, surf is an in app purchase.
19/10/2013Great app, accurate for us in Australia! Only request would be ability to set custom wallpaper or randomize from a source.
22/09/2013Nothing to fault. Tip: Disable background tasks for the app if you find it's not updating the weather quick enough!
21/09/2013This is a fantastic app but is let down by update crashes. I'd have given it 5 stars otherwise
