Font size on the widget is too small. The widget lets you adjust background transparency which is great. It lets you change font color. But you can't adjust the font size and it's way too small. So far no weather app has a widget as good as the Samsung stock weather app. This one is the best of the rest but it's still not that great simply because of the font size. Either increase it or let the user adjust it. Thanks.

One major complaint: Number of locations in the "My Locations" area is now limited to 50. I HATE THIS! I had significantly more locations saved, but they were parsed off during a past update. I'm a long-haul truck driver, so I travel to many different places throughout the year. I used to depend on Weather Bug for planning my routes, but I can't do that anymore. Please take off the limit on Saved Locations so I can use this app again. I'd even pay extra for the return of this feature.

I dropped my 5 star review to one star and uninstalled the app because it seems to have been hacked. At least once a day for the past 7-10 days, a pop-up ad covering the entire screen of 'Congratulations you have won...' appears. You can't back out of it, you have to close the app completely. At least twice, I have uninstalled then reinstalled, but the ad still appears. I would still have the app installed were it not for this.

Dear Peggy, Our sincere apologies for any inconvenience. While we are actively working to resolve this issue, a temporary solution would be to close the app, clear the app's cache, reboot your device, and then reopen the app. We are getting these ads tracked & blocked. Your loyalty means a lot, and we appreciate your cooperation! - WeatherBug Team.
