Windows Phone Weather app version 2.0 brings Live Tile updates for each location
Version 2.0 of Microsoft's own weather application for Windows Phone was recently outed, and it brings some welcome improvements with it. First off, it finally is supporting Windows Phone Mango, and sports beautiful Live Tile updates.

Those Live Tiles can be customized for each of your pre-programmed locations, giving you weather updates in real time on your homescreen, complete with the temperature outside and status icons.

Moreover, the new default Weather app features more detailed forecasts now, given in 3-hour intervals, whereas before we had more rare updates.

I really wanted a Blackberry, because of the physical qwerty keyboard, but WP7 is making increasingly harder to see the appeal Blackberry. I thought maybe all I want is a couple of apps on a tiny screen, I don't like IOS or Android, but after seeing all these advances with WP7 and BB os7 looks more and more dated. :(
