Fixed! - update out soon [This widget used to be perfect. With the 3hr by 3hr weather on your home screen you plan your whole day at a glance. If the weather's good I cycle to work, and pack lighter clothes for the return ride if it going to warm up. With the update, it now shows 1hr by 1hr weather, so you only see part of the morning, and have to open the app to plan your day. So now it's not much better than the BBC weather app ]
Choppiness FIXED! Best weather app for UK , It's sad how rubbish our official weather apps are. Foreign companies offer far better apps at the cost of forecast accuracy. Thankfully we have this. I love the presentation - it looks great with dynamic weather backgrounds and the forecasts are easy to read. You can toggle the days to show hourly which you can see many hours at once (10+ depending on phone) or see overall for 5 days. Also has map, monthly forecast, multiple customisable widgets and warnings with notification alerts. Love o
Very good app It's an excellent app, easy to use, very accurate so far. Weather warning notification very handy and useful. Graphic representations of weather much better than any other weather app I've used. Uses less memory than other weather apps and not to much data usage. Only issue every now and then eats battery. The other day it was 2nd on my battery usage. This must be a bug most days it barely uses any battery up at all.
The maps option is one I use frequently and shouldn't be hidden under a sub-menu. Battery drain is excessive. It often uses 10% of my battery when just running in the background (the same on multiple different devices). Clearly, it is not synchronising very efficiently, as I am syncing data from other applications in the background which uses nothing like this. Seems to cause wake locks when a data connection is not available.
Taking two stars off. Recently the map has been showing heavy rain but forecast and widget just says cloudy, these are downpours . find this developer has got real lazy with maintenance and updating a tired user interface that does not tell the weather. Just happy to take. I have contact them by email with no response. Paid user.
Easy to use and better than the free ones Having been a little frustrated with the limitations of the free weather app that came with my phone I went for this paid version as it had a five day forecast to view as a widget and it is also quick and easy to go to the hourly forecast. Not five stars as I would like to see the option of Farenheit and also, whilst it recognises my local town, the forecast seems to be more general for a much wider area rather than specifically for mine and we have often had rain and sun when it wasn't forecast.
Maintenance version to correct some issues with new version of Android 6 named Marshmallow
