Update: I have continued using WBE, and the positive feedback I provided years ago (below) is still true today in 2017. Now, as before, no other app is better for weather - and importantly, WeatherBug Elite is AD FREE! || This is a fantastic app. WeatherBug Elite provides the most detailed information I have seen anywhere other than professional aviation weather services. There are certainly features that could be tweaked/added, but this is already a 5 star program.
This app used to have the only decent weather radar live wallpaper years ago. Though it has been buggy for the past three years (developers abandoned it between 2014-2017) I was still able to use the live wallpaper. After the most recent update, however, the live wallpaper has been completely removed as well as the useful widgets. Thanks, new devs. You ruined one of my favorite apps.
Had to change my review from 5 to 2. The update to this app removed a bunch of features. I loved the 4 day widget, upgraded and it's gone. No warning. Also the old widgets would open the app when you tapped on it. That no loner works. Tried the widget app to get my 4 day widget back. However it seems to use the free version and not Elite. Very poor design! Needs a lot more testing, should not have been released. Please correct quickly!!!
Review revision: live wallpaper has disappeared? Cf. Below (from the last time it disappeared and then returned) for why this feature is so important to me. 2013 review; live wallpaper returns! I use that feature as my exclusive wallpaper, and it was the primary reason I purchased the elite version in the first place. When you ride as much as I do (200-300km/week), it really is invaluable. Rest of the revised app is decent--goes kind of the Accuweather route. I am glad though that WeatherBug has kept the descriptive text forecasts--some times a word, rather than a picture, is worth a thousand words.
What have they done to the Weather Bug we paid for? My street names are gone on the radar screen. No matter which "layer" you choose, there are no landmarks or street names my my Moto Droid Z. What was wrong with it? It was great. I want my money back. They great reviews you are seeing before they auto removed the original app and updated it to this new app. Beware.
What was once a really nice app has been completely ruined by the latest update. If I had wanted a "new" look and an "updated" interface I would have purchased a different app. This one now looks like it was designed by a 1st grade teacher to decorate her classroom and shock her ADHD students into paying attention. What were you thinking?!?
