Used to be my 'go to' weather app but it's pretty much useless for forecasting in Southern Ontario now as well as the wrong graphic is regularly used. Jokingly, I've been saying go with the opposite of the forecast. For example: today was supposed to be sunny with a sun graphic. Instead, overcast and pouring rain with thunderstorms in the evening... Looking for a new app WX forecasting app now.
Recently uninstalled the Weather Network app because it's boated and useless. Tried out 3 or 4 new ones and this is the one that I'm sticking with. The app is lightweight, the widget stays up to date, it doesn't require superfluous security permissions, and it's not constantly prompting me to turn on location. This weather app is exactly what I was looking for. It's perfect. Great job, devs!
Only my second 5** rating ever; wow! **Simple and effective. **No ads! **Free! **Info directly from the horse's mouth, Environment Canada. (Was using TWN app for >3 yesrs; it just keeps getting worse with so much junk info! Please don't do that!) **Bonus: I now have a beautiful Canadian flag icon on my desktop!
Overall I really like this app. Ever since The Weather Network changed their UI I've been looking for something better. The only problem I've noticed is that the widget doesn't update its icon for the current forecast. It's just a grey bubble with a ? In the middle.
Long time user on many devices. The only app I install. Uses Environment Canada's weather forecast and current readings. You can't beat EC. No commercial compromises. No motivation to torque the forecasts to sensationalise the weather. Just the facts. If you want excitement choose one of the "professional" weather hucksters like AccuWeather or the Weather Network. They'll tell you what you WANT to hear, not what you NEED to hear.
(updated) Widget fails to render consistently on Pixel/Android 7.1.2. Sometimes current temperature is obscured by other readings; other times nothing is displayed at all. I still trust your app for reliable EC forecasts. I'm sure you'll resolve this.
Fixed a bug that caused the app to crash when viewing locations for which no Current Conditions were available.
