Amazing Weather for Windows Phone 8
If you use a Windows Phone 7 device, chances are you’ve heard about XDA Senior Member eizsoft’s Amazing Weather application. Having used it myself, I can attest to the quality of the application and its intuitive design. However, it seems eizsoft isn’t resting on his laurel, as a new beta has opened for Amazing Weather HD on Windows Phone 8!
Even though it’s in Beta, the application is full featured and includes:
- Support for WIDE, MEDIUM, SMALL live tiles.
