Overall, I like this app. It seems to be fairly accurate in its forecasts and is close to my favorite local news channel. My only issue is that it has stopped updating on the status bar. If I restart my phone it'll work fora few hours but it always stops. It's very frustrating. I even upgraded to the pro version in hopes it would work. If this can be resolved, I'll happily give the 5th star.

Slow to load. Real time location shuts itself off constantly. Wind direction is usually semi accurate. Windspeed is most often dangerously inaccurate for me as I'm a fulltime traveller. Can't believe I can't turn alerts on and off for specific location. I have to delete and re-add locations with alerts on or off. Best for very general weather like seeing how the weather is at a location I'm headed to. Definitely not very accurate overall. Use other apps for specifics. Lots of adds.

For the most part I've had decent experiences with weatherbug, but this week the 10-day forecast has said no precipitation all the way leading up to last night, and it wasn't until I looked into the hourly forecast that I saw 2" of snow on the way. I have livestock, I check the weather six times a day to make sure I don't need to shelter them. If 2" of snow is coming through, that's more than significant enough to be reflected in the 10 day. Also, the "Send feedback" button doesn't work.
