Doesn't show alert messages and warnings. Not getting the information is NOT very helpful going through Harvey. For a short period, alerts and warnings were displayed. Once Irma hit the region, same thing. Constant notifications of alerts and warnings with no information available. This is quickly becoming a use at your own discretion app while having access to other sources for important weather information.
This app used to provide accurate weather forecasts. For the past six months the forecasts and current weather conditions for Southern Kern County CA have not even been close. Rain forecasts have been 100% wrong. The forecasts for wind, temperature and clouds have been 95% wrong. They used to be 98% correct. That was why I purchased this app. Whatever it takes, please get back to providing accurate weather information. Or I will have to ask for a refund and find another solution for my weather. Believe me, that is not what I want to do. I really like this app.
I don't like this app the widget does not update itself have to open the app to see current conditions can't see the dew point or pressure numbers even in either screen. Would like to see time in widget GOOGLE NOW DOES A BETTER JOB AT IT AND IT'S FREE. AND FOR SELL OUR INFORMATION WITHOUT CONSENT SHAME ON YOU!!! THIS APP IS NO GOOD DO NOT BUY GET GOOGLE NOW FOR FREE!!
Bugs galore. Recently I was awakened at night a number of times by Cyclone alerts. We don't get cyclones in my part of the world. There widget doesn't advance to the next day so it's out of date. Clicking on the widget's refresh symbol used to refresh the widget, now it brings up the app. The forecast and minute cast disagree all too often. The forecast accuracy isn't good.
Edit 9/19/2017 - this used to be one of the best weather apps I had used. Lately I have had nothing but issues with it. The severe weather alerts do not display anything and the widget does not update on its own. Tried several times to contact the developers of the app but got the exact same form letter in response for both issues. Not impressed. (old review) This is one of the best. I've used a lot of others but this one surpasses all of them. Just wish they showed the projected high temperature for the day on the "now" tab. The only way to see the high temperature for the day is to go to the hourly forecast and scroll down and find it manually.
Widgets do not update anymore since last update. And hitting manual refresh doesn't work, it just opens the main app. I've deleted and re-added widgets multiple times now. It will work for a few hours then stop updating again. Edit: I found the old, free version 4.81 and installed that, since AccuWeather is taking its time to fix the current version.
