    Solid app, but the live tile is terrible. Only displays the temp in upper right hand corner, in a black circle, which means temp can only be displayed from 0 to 99. Would love to see flickr photos on the live tile, with forecasted data laid on top.

    Gran, gran interfaz. Enhorabuena. Pero el Live tile no se actualiza automáticamente, y cuando se entra en la localidad también hay que presionar en actualizar.

    Nice interface, but not the most accurate forecast. Would love to find where they grab their data free.

    Beautiful app. The live tile seems like an afterthought, and is incredibly disappointing. The little black circle is awful. Hoping for more in the future.

    Really wish that the app itself had live tile rather then pinning every city. I'd like it better if the app could filp through each city with a live tile for the app. Next update hopefully!
