It once was a great app. While ads are clearly indicated as part of the "free" deal, they've since moved into a full screen "survey" for "prizes" that can't be closed out of. Instead you need to close out of the app and restart to get to your weather information. Ads are one thing, but this is over the top instrusive. Removing this app and moving on to something else. Edit: appreciate the feedback and explanation, but in light of your response, it makes me question app security. Still a no go.

Dear Ken, Sorry about your bad experience. We believe intrusive and fraudulent ads have targeted ad-supported apps in particular. Our team is still investigating the source of the ads to determine their origin and block them. We regret the inconvenience caused. Thank you. - WeatherBug Team

Good app but radar is awful! They now have future cast as the last half of the radar window (the last hour) and it's absolutely horrible! It's never once been correct so you have to keep just watching the first 6 increments of the radar to see what's going on because the last 6 are ridiculous! Instant direction changes for no reason and instantly a storm is twice and/or half the size it was 10 min ago. They really need to do away with this!

This has always been my go to weather app but I've noticed the last year or two that the temp in the notifications menu doesn't update like it should. I can't get an accurate temp without opening up the app which kinda defeats the purpose of having it in the notifications menu. Like this morning around 8:30am I checked and it said it was 80 degrees outside but it was displaying the temp from 6pm yesterday. 12+ hrs with no update. I had to open the app to get it reset to the current temp.
