LOVED THIS APP!!!! It is VERY ACCURATE. That being said, I am uninstalling it because I keep getting texts from everyone and their brother wanting me to buy things. Then Kim Kamando and another site warned about Accuweather selling our info to 3rd party companies who refuse to listen to not calling you again. I am done with this and am deleting your app.
I heard the news that the Accuweather company was selling its users' geolocation data to advertisers, and in fact is continuing to do so. (Source: ah dang, can I not paste links in this app? Ok, it's an article by ZDnet, you all have Google.) So I checked my phone to see what the weather app uses, and sure enough it's powered by Accuweather. So I deleted it. I give this app two stars, because it was at least good at what it did. It was a functional weather app that I'd had no problems with. So if you're alright with supporting a company that sells users' private data and is currently refusing to stop, then this app will at least do what you want. As for myself? It's not worth it to me. I'm switching weather apps. (I've heard good things about Weather Underground...)
UPDATE: After having issues with this apps widget for a couple of weeks I uninstalled it. Then I got a new phone and the widget works even better on this device. Hopefully with this new phone I won't ever have those problems again😉👍 《Previous Update》 Since the newest update the widget won't work, I can't even add a widget to my homescreen. And it's the feature I liked the most... being able to view the weather without opening the app.
The app sends random weather update notifications in the window notification that cannot be disabled. You can only disable the persistent notification. It's a pretty weather app and had useful information, but there are too many other good weather apps out there that are less invasive and provide more granular user control over how they want to interact with or be notified by the app (e.g., "Weather Live" and "Dark Sky")
After the last update, the widget doesn't refresh for the correct temperature unless I manually refresh it. Couldn't find anything in settings that would allow me to set a refresh interval. Any ideas? Edit to add: it looks like I'm not the only one having a problem with the new on refreshing app. Time to look for another weather app. Uninstalled!
The app is good (hourly/daily info on preset locations), but the widget, which is mainly why I got this app for, falls a bit short. (1) It'd be nice if the widget's font was larger (I can't read such small font). (2) I'd also like to be able to simply swipe/scroll within the widget to see my other preset locations (without having to launch the app). (The similar AccuWeather widget that came preloaded on my old Samsung S4 Mini was more useful than this version on those points.) EDIT: Now the widget stopped auto updating per the "interval" set in settings (ie. 30min, 1hr, 2hr). The widget info only gets updated if/when I open the app. (Moto-G4/Android7)
