The Bing Weather and Bing Sports apps for Windows Phone 8 both received updates on Thursday.
The Bing Weather app now supplies current snow and weather conditions at ski resorts around the world, plus weather history and additional metrics like the UV index. A few other notable changes include revamped Live Tiles displaying current conditions, wind speed, and precipitation—with a 5-day forecast on the flip side, according to a post from Windows Phone Blog Editor Michael Stroh.
The Bing team also significantly beefed up coverage in the 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. Now, though, you can also track sports and players that matter to you most — so the app feels a lot more personal.
