Blue Skies brings the hyper-local forecast from the highly popular iPhone app, Dark Sky, to Windows Phone.

Using the same information as Dark Sky, Blue Skies can tell you precisely if it will rain or snow in the next hour.  Now you can know if it's a good idea to take that umbrella with you as you leave your house.  Unlike the Dark Sky app, Blue Skies brings the weather to your home screen with a beautiful live tile.

Features:
- Summary of next hour (Is not available for all locations)
- Summary of next 24 hours
- 24 hour forecast
- 5 day forecast
- Detailed weather information including: precipitation, humidity, wind speed, sunrise, and sunset
- Displays severe weather warnings and advisories
- Live tile with small, medium, and wide tile sizes
- Transparent live tile perfect for Windows Phone 8.1
- Ability to choose the live tile look that's right for you
- Choose the live tile update frequency to reduce battery consumption/data usage
- Choose between a light or dark theme
- Simple and easy to use
- Use voice commands to get the weather
- Toast notifications for weather warnings
- Radar maps by Weather Underground and Open Weather Maps through in-app purchase

    Love it. Needs mini symbol only live tile I reckon
  • by David 21/11/2014
    Since I have paid for it, the app is not updating the live tile, or the live tile doesn't format correctly. Shame, was better before I paid for the extras!

    It's good pro😊
  • by Andreas 20/11/2014
    Beautiful interface; however, don't bother buying the hourly update option because the live tile doesn't update quite often..
  • by Paul 19/11/2014
    Wonderful app. I don't know if anyone else has already mentioned this, but the dev preview update 8.10.14203.306 has broken your live tile.
