Review from Patrick Warnke
Please update for QHD resolution! App does not render correctly on LG G3.
I have always thought Accuweather was better than most of the weather forecasting apps, and after using every one of them for awhile, my opinion is Accuweather is by far the most comprehensive and accurate of the many apps to choose from. The Accuweather team don't just appear to give their forecast out in a randomly condensed fashion, as I have felt most of the other weather station's do. Instead, they have always been more concerned about giving out reliable & accurate forecasts!
Im a hitchhiker. Which means i travel a lot and often sleep outside.that being said, its good to know the forecast at night. That way i know if i need to seek cover or not. However it would get 5*s from me if you added an auto location option. It would also be nice if it was more accurate. I just got a wind advisory alert and its as calm as the air in a deep underground cave with no ventilation.
Lots of great features, display options & pollen forecasts. I have super bad allergies. This is very useful for travel to know how to prepare. Lots of options for how the info is displayed & delivered, what alerts u want, and background displays. And NO ADS!! Just weather. I haven't had any compatibility issues w/my Samsung Galaxy S5. Very happy.
I can not figure out how to delete locations. When I open the map portion of this particular app, I can't seem to be able to pin my location on the weather map. Yes I can use the find my location with the GPS. Option however, that is not going to show my location on the weather map. Other weather apps allow one to do so. Make a few changes and I will update my rating. Keep up the good work and I will keep buying this app every year.
I turned on the ongoing notification to show the temperature in my system bar and the app killed the system UI. It would do so again every time the phone restarted. I had to look up how to boot up in safe mode and uninstall this app. At least the restart dialogue still worked. I've never had any other app make my phone literally unusable. One star!
I use this app because its radar feature is excellent..... However, the weather forecasts are absolute garbage. The first 6 days are decent, but then the forecasts after that are often off by a drastic amount..... I highly recommend using the national weather service's website for weather forecasts, they're the most accurate.
