Review from Shiroi Hana
Edit to the review I left over the weekend about my Samsung S7: noticed that the widget now does not update anymore. It's stuck to whatever was the last time I clicked on the actual app and even the refresh arrows don't work as well. The screen saver mode notification arrows don't work at all. Still giving me yesterday night's weather. So though I love the new update it's definitely something important to fix asap.
I have found this app to be far more consistently accurate in terms of weather forecasting, including long range forecasting, than any of the other leading weather apps. I had completely given up on weather forecasting, until I discovered AccuWeather. It's refreshing to know that weather forecasting can actually be done with greater precision than the consistently wrong, forecasting that I was accustomed to, via the Weather Network. I'd like to know how to make AccuWeather my phone's default background weather app. It was the default app on my previous Samsung phone, but my current and Samsung phone has the Weather Network set as the default weather app. I have so far, not been successful in trying to remedy this issue. For the moment, I manually access the AccuWeather information when I want reliable information. It would be more convenient if it was the app that showed on my phone's display.
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.
The app works pretty good in general and the looks of it are well done. Simple, clear, customizable widget. Only one thing didn't work for me was the "find me" option, even having gps enabled in high accuracy mode. Anyway, I fixed the location and that's all. A bit pricy for its kind. Keep it up! Good luck
I love this app! The minutecast is on point! I also love the Accucast. The forecast for hourly, daily and current conditions are very accurate. The RADAR is also accurate and I especially like the future RADAR. GREAT APP!!! I would like to see a 'lighting strike' feature. Edit: After latest update I can't touch the screen on the watches and warning to bring up what the watch or warning is. Very sad with this.
By far THE BEST weather app I've seen and used! I have to know what to expect outside in order to plan even simple errands, such as a trip to the grocery store. A sudden shift in the barometric pressure can shut my body down within minutes. The hour-to-hour function here assists in my decisions for the day, saving me a lot of pain.
One of my favorite goto sites for conditions that might effect my travel. As a road warrior before retiring in 2015, I flew out if PHL every Sunday for +/- 19 years and without fail I checked Accuweather before I packed. You had to know what the weather conditions were at your destination city. I found it very deliable for my needs.
