It's a useful app, but be prepared for repeated frustration if you paid to have the ads removed. Every time the app updates from the Play Store it breaks the card settings you've set up and forgets that you paid for ad removal. Signing out and back in doesn't solve the issue. I have to end up uninstalling and reinstalling the app to banish the ads, sometimes only after with repeated tries. And of course re-setting up my preferred card order every time.

Weather bug used to be a good weather app, but the recent update has added so MANY ads it is now difficult to sort the weather from the ads. I will give this app a few weeks to return to the way it was or I WILL find a new app or just stick my head out the window to see what the weather is doing. Not worth the hassle at this point. I will update my review if the ads are removed from the middle of the screen. Update 11-22 ads have been removed from the middle of the screen. Much better now.

I typically use the weather channel app but I decided to use this one for a change and even paid the $10 to remove ads. I honestly wish I didn't. It only sends me weather alerts when it wants to (yes, I've gone through all of the app and phone settings to allow alerts but only works half the time). The live radar only gives about 30 min of the future vs other apps the give you 5 hrs or more. I am disappointed in the app and wish I could get $10 back but we all know that won't happen.
