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.

- 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

    This is a great go to weather app. Performs everything I need perfectly and gives very accurate information which is very important in my line of work

    Radar is a paid extra.

    I paid for this app and I love everything about it but periodically it crashes where I can't open it anymore and I have to uninstall and install each time. Can you please fix this problem?!! I don't appreciate having to reinstall your app and changing all my settings again, every other day.

    A different kind of weather app. Really like the info on the live tiles about needing an umbrella or not. Very clean and intuitive design focusing on text rather than icons and graphs. Will give five stars when the update bug on the live tiles is fixed.

    The best weather app on Windows Phone. Simple, clean, and easy to use. My only suggestion would be to add lockscreen information in future updates.

    Simple, uncluttered, just enough choices to display details the way I want.
  • by Josiah 5/22/2015
    I paid for the extras but the live tile will not refresh now. Broken app.
