Review from Matt G
Does what I downloaded it for, so can't ask much more than that. Particularly like that you can identify small villages and get an idea of what the weather might be like there, which isn't always available in some of the other weather apps I've used. Very handy for when you go travelling.
Very easy to use on my Galaxy S2. Gets forecast at your current location very fast even on 3G. Accuracy is generally pretty good and certainly better than most. Updated Oct 2017. Having used the app for several years now I can say that it is very good and useful. We now live in an area with a sort of micro climate so forecasts more than about 2days ahead can be a bit iffy but would be difficult to manage without it now. Is being improved all the time. Works great on my new Galaxy A5. Would recommend this app.
We use this a lot and find it's pretty much always accurate for the first 3 days and close after that. I'm aware that that is about as good that can be predicted for the UK given our peculiar location in the N Atlantic! There are 2 "wish list" items which would give it 6* :) Access to the shipping forecast for nearest area, and tide tables. It would help those of us on the coast to make educated guesses about river depths, currents etc. Could save lives!
Now the app is getting very inaccurate weather is changing every hour from sunny to possible rain in an hour? Do not know why this app is poor now days, Google weather is much better. My first review in 2016.... Much better & more accurate than the stock app on nexus 5,try it & you will see why. It has not been wrong so far! Very accurate in my area anyway!
Have used this app for a long time now, but lately it has been giving completely wrong weather predictions? I understand that weather can change quickly & updates to the app must take time but today it said thunderstorms, lightning & heavy rain? Never happened it's been sunshine & also hot all day loverly weather! Think it's time to install an app with more accurate forecasts, loved this app what has happened to it lately?
best out there for its ease of use and its simple design.Accuracy has now been improved greatly. But I must say its accuracy in the past was way out. 13th august 2015 was forecast rain all day/24hrs in Bristol and it bearly rained a drop. It wasnt adjusted accordingly either as the day went on. Thousands of £s license money are spent on equipment and wages. Just as well use a barometer and your own judgement. Thats poor when your job/work/earnings relies on an accurate forecast...
User friendly and reliable app, I wouldn't be without it. Amazingly accurate forecasts for the coming day. Recent bugs (forecast not updating etc) seem to have been fixed now. Edit: is much less reliable these days. Forecast seems to be changed hourly eg at 9am says it will be dry all day , at midday it says heavy rain at 2pm til 6pm. Pinch of salt needed! Pity, because I've used this app for years. Marked down from 5* to 3*.
We've made some improvements based on your feedback:
- Layout change: next hour's weather much more prominent
Hope that helps!
