Review from Steve Hooker
Good App Excellent App. User friendly, useful info
The layout is a little busy but not terrible. I'm sure I will get used to it. I haven't used it long enough to know if it is accurate 2, 3, 4 days out. Accurate predictions of temp and precipitation 2 - 4 days away is very important to me. But it has more details than the Weather Channel app I have been using for many years. So I'll stick with this for 2018 and reassess my choice at the end of the year.
In my exploration of the wonderful features and capabilities offered by AccuWeather, I accidentally reported that, in my area, there were slippery roads, snow/flurries present, etc, which are forecasted b/w tonight and tomorrow a.m., but NOT CURRENTLY OCCURRING. My sincerest apology. Otherwise, the app looks great, very user-friendly and UP-2-DATE! Prayers for safe keeping for all.
Would be nice to have lightning detection before the Spring storm season starts up. Also the government weather warnings should be for follow me option and not just saved locations. Additionally, the notification shade area should also automatically show conditions for follow me GPS. Long time Weather Channel user here and they have lightning detection. I like this apps look and layout. Also it is important for follow me widget to update timely and as accurate as possible. It appears that AccuWeather is getting better at this over the last year. Keep it up going in the right direction.
*Does not seem to have any way to turn off "Favorite locations". I don't have any so-called favorite locations and certainly never set one in this app, but somehow it set one on its own & won't allow it to be removed. I want weather, including Severe Alerts, to be cued exclusively to my current location, while being able to easily check weather on up the road anywhere I want to. I drive a truck, so I have no need or desire for any fixed location based weather whatsoever. In fact, everything that is based on a fixed location just gets directly in my way.
Use the app daily. Switched from the Weather Network app to AccuWeather because it wouldn't work half the time and will never go back. The hourly forecast is a bit busy...could do without the temp/real feel graph. All in all though, a good informative app for weather.
Accuracy has been diminishing little by little over the years, at least around here. Right now it says it'll stop snowing in 16 minutes. Snow? There is NONE. This isn't the first time the precipitation forecast has been wildly wrong in the past year or so but it is one of the more glaring examples.
