Bing Weather

The Good Bing Weather's no-frills, attractive design gives you just enough weather details without overcrowding the app with unnecessary features.

The Bad You can’t get to extended daily forecast details from the home screen, and the app can be slow when swiping through each page.

The Bottom Line Bing Weather is well worth the free download for its pretty, dead-simple design and comprehensive weather reports.

Effortless weather reports with an elegant design

Bing Weather is part of a suite of four Bing apps for Windows Phone meant to make daily news, weather, sports, and finance information easy to find and consume. In keeping with the other apps' designs, Bing Weather is simple, clean, and exceedingly easy to use.

I don't ask for much in a weather app: I just want the current conditions, the upcoming forecast, and maybe a few weather maps. Bing Weather delivers all those features, no more, no less, wrapped up in a colorful design.

Design
Compared with The Weather Channel app on Windows Phone, which comes preinstalled on most Lumia handsets and includes several social features, Bing Weather is a no-nonsense basic weather app that delivers simple daily weather conditions and extended forecasts.
