Space Weather 2.1.2 hit the marketplace yesterday and just in time for the Windows Phone 7.8 update that is available now. This update includes a few fixes, a few more Meteosat images, and new Live Tile sizes for phones after they updated to 7.8. This means you will be able to take advantage of these new tiles from the moment you update your phone, but you don’t have to wait to update the app. It is compatible with Windows Phone 7.1/7.5/7.8/8.
If you don’t have the app, or need to reinstall it you can find it here:
A new version of Space Weather for Windows Phone has been submitted to the Windows Store for certification. This version adds multi size Live Flip Tiles to Windows Phone 7.8 (as well as maintaining them for Windows Phone 8). This app update should be published soon and ready for the 7.8 update that Microsoft will be pushing soon!
Today Space Weather is featured in the Windows App Store. Once you open up the Windows Store, click on apps and swipe over and you will see it in the app spotlight panorama.
This week Space Weather for Windows Phone will be updated to 2.1.1. This update includes a few fixes and adds a missed feature back. We have had a few requests to put the “green videos” back and we have done just that. If you don’t know what the videos are, they are a set of GOES 15 movies that show the sun over the last 3, 7, 14, and 27 days. These movies are updated daily. They were removed in previous versions because of a bug that was found with Windows Phone and specific hardware but we’ve decided to put them back due to popular demand. This should hit the market place this week, so keep an eye out for this update.
Also, we snuck in version 2.1 that added wide live tiles for Windows Phone 8 while still maintaining compatibility with Windows Phone 7. This update is now available in the Windows Store.
Space Weather for Windows 8 is now available for Windows 8. This is the perfect complement to Space Weather for Windows Phone 7/8. We will be releasing updates regularly just like the Phone version.
Space weather is the concept of changing environmental conditions in near-Earth space or the space from the Sun’s atmosphere to the Earth’s atmosphere. Space weather affects our planet, our technology, and all living things in many different ways. Solar flares, geomagnetic storms, and solar radiation are a few ways space weather can wreak havoc on the earth. It can also create beautiful auroras can that be seen near the poles and sometimes much further.
