Very inclusive weather app Great weather app for weather geeks like me. As a motorcyclist I need to know as much as possible so that I can judge riding conditions. This app helped me a lot recently by showing a county weather alert for freezing rain at my destination point by simply shading the map drawing my attention to it. I love it! Getting traffic reports is a great bonus which I expect to be handy this winter. This app does everything but control the weather!
Amazing App! So many weather apps do half of what's expected while requiring more permissions than would ever be necessary. Not the case with Elecont: between Animated Weather App and eWeather HD you practically have the tools of a meteorologist at your fingertips! The Elecont team has built powerful weather apps and provide tremendous support and an active online community. Five stars all the way!
Best weather widget out there. I had the paid version from Amazon, and this company switched my license to Android. I've had problems twice...and each time the developers fixed things almost immediately (less than a few hours.) Easy to use, plenty of options. [Note: I have the paid version too, which I recommend.]
There is some considerable overlap in functionality between this app and the much more comprehensive eWeather, also from Elecont. In fact, I had to ask the developer himself what this app has that eWeather is missing. The additional items turn out to be hurricanes, population figures, traffic and a 10 day on-map forecast. All of these are drawn on an animated map, as opposed to the static map provided by eWeather. To his credit, the generous developer responded to my query by offering to unlock this app for free, an offer I gratefully accepted. Like eWeather, the app is idiosyncratic in its design and use of UI elements. It really looks and feels like nothing else; except for eWeather, of course. I also don't really understand why this was built as a separate app from eWeather. It forms a natural extension of that much larger app and its inclusion there would have been the obvious developmental choice. Ease of use of the two apps would also have benefited. That said, this is a nice bonus on top of eWeather. It's by no means essential, but if you can have it for free in addition to eWeather, why not have it?
Comprehensive weather info Takes some getting used to as the app is very busy with lots going on, but once you master it all the info you could ever want is right there. Tech support people are very helpful too!
Keeps closing The screen, although it has many options to view, is just too busy. Sure, u can turn it off with a finger touch. At first, the app worked well, but it has started force closing and freezing alot. I expected better from an app that I have been using for yrs and paid for the radar part.
