Bing Weather for Windows Phone 8 now offers ski reports; Bing Sports covers 30 more sports

Eager to hit the powder this winter? If you’re a skier, you’ll like the latest changes to Bing Weather—one of two popular and free Bing apps for Windows Phone 8 to get feature upgrades this morning.

Download the app and you’ll find the app now supplies current snow and weather conditions at ski resorts around the world, plus weather history and additional metrics like the UV index. And that’s not all. Other notable changes include revamped Live Tiles displaying current conditions, wind-speed, and precipitation—with a 5-day forecast on the flip side. But my favorite addition is new lock screen support for at-a-glance weather updates. Give it a try and see what you think.

The Bing team also significantly beefed up coverage in its free Bing Sports app, adding 30 new sports including tennis, rugby, NASCAR, LPGA, and Champions League soccer. The app already supplies top headlines, scores, schedules, standings, and stats. But now you can also track sports and players that matter to you most—so the app feels a lot more personal. Another change: Bing Sports also now shows leading teams and players on league and team pages. Download it now

    I suggest this app:

    www.windowsphone.com/s

    You can use lock screen background of your choice with weather info.

    But Lock screen updates only when Live tile is pinned to start

    Get an error when trying to use current location. Amazing Weather works just fine on my device so don't know why the Location Awareness doesn't work on Bing Weather app.... :>(

    I just recently found out, that Microsoft has released a Remote Desktop app for Android and iPhone. I'm so waiting for it on a Windows Phone 8. How can Microsoft be such bad to it's own platform?

  • LOVE the changes and improvements!!! :D

    One feature suggestion... can we get an update that lets us set the lockscreen image as Bing Daily instead of the weather image? :)

  • Yay! Wide tile support!
