Overall it's a good app, but one annoyance is the difference between the brief forecast and the expanded version. Today, for instance, the short forecast says the high will be 67, but when I tap to expand it, it says the high will be in the mid-70s. Also, auto-play ads are an EXTREME annoyance.

Honestly, the app has become more of a disappointment over time... the current big issue is not being able to see radar with warning and (to a lesser point) watches. The only option that has both also includes lighting... which isn't that useful and clogs up the screen hiding the much more needed information here in the Midwest.

Hello Adam, we are sorry to hear about your bad experience. It is not possible to review two map layers at the same time. We suggest changing the zoom level when you review the Storm tracker map layer. We'll highlight your feedback with our product team for review. We appreciate your understanding. - WeatherBug Team

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.
