Update on Bing Sports and Weather apps for WP8 :

The limelight may have been on Windows 8.1 today, but that didn't stop Microsoft from rolling out some app update love for Windows Phone 8. Today, Microsoft has rolled out an update to the Bing Weather app and Bing Sports app for the Windows Phone 8 platform.

The Bing Weather app now showcases current snow and weather conditions at ski resorts across the globe. This updated app also shows weather history and additional metrics such as UV index. The Live Tiles have been revamped and now showcase current conditions, wind speed, and precipitation. The tile also showcases a 5-day forecast on the flip side. There is also lock screen support for weather updates.

 Plenty of Windows Phone owners enjoy sports beyond American traditions like baseball or football. If that describes you to a (golf) tee, you'll be glad to hear that Microsoft has updated its Bing Sports and Weather apps with you in mind. The Bing Sports app now tracks 30 more sports, including Champions League soccer, LPGA golf, NASCAR, rugby and tennis; it follows individual players and sports, too.
