"Weatherbug has been a popular application for Windows Mobile and now it looks like it is on board for Windows Phone 7. In a recent interview over at Channel 9, Weatherbug developers talked about using Silverlight and Bing Maps with their mobile weather application."
WeatherBug is the largest (their claim) private weather network in the world, and offers clients for many of the major mobile OS platforms, including Windows Mobile. They've now laid the groundwork for porting the WM client to WP7 and apparently its gone pretty smoothly. Unfortunately for those of us outside the US, WeatherBug doesn't offer the full range of functionality that's available inside the US, but the app is free for those of you who don't mind ads and still provides added value compared to, say, that embedded in HTC Sense.
