Looks slick, but accuracy leaves a lot to be desired This app is beautiful. You can customize so many aspects of its appearance, but you have no control over the most important aspect of the system...the data source. I don't know where it pulls its weather information, but it is usually not very accurate. I wish the dev would let us choose the source. I generally use this app to get a quick glance at the general conditions (usually have to manually refresh first to get the latest information), but if I want anything specific, I open Weather Underground.
Great non-intrusive weather app Let's face it: we don't want a weather app that draws too much attention to itself. Checking the weather isn't an experience; it's a chore. We need to do it, and we want to do it quickly, and then forget about the app that helped us do it. To that end, we want a weather app that doesn't ask for attention and doesn't take bring your phone to a grind. That's exactly what this app delivers. I am mostly unaware of it's existence on my phone. I use the app's notification feature to display the weather on the status bar, so I don't even need to "check" the weather. It's just there. It changes based on my location, and it automatically updates itself without draining my battery. I haven't had to launch the app apart from the first time to configure it. And that's impressive!
Great looks, meh weather The app and its widget are great! Works smoothly and looks nice. I love that the widget has many features for customizing! These reasons have kept me using it even tho the weather for my location is only approximate. However, for the second time this winter it is very wrong. To say only 40% chance of snow, just hours before a major storm hits, is a problem. Time to find an app with a better weather source!
Looks great Looks great and battery use seems fine. Easy set up. Sometimes the weather conditions don't update correctly or it will show it sunny at midnight (it seems better now)..but I noticed on the Noaa site, they were wrong, too, so it may be a source of the info error rather than the app. The temp seems accurate mostly. EDIT 7/25. stuck 2 days behind...no refresh
I really want to make this app my keeper- it is clean, simple, easy to use, beautiful widgets, a lot to customize, etc. But, regardless of how often you hit the Refresh button, or even if you set it to refresh automatically every 30 minutes, it only ever actually updates its data once per hour. Refreshing manually doesn't do anything. Because of that, it is not accurate enough for me to be usable. If you fixed the refresh problem then I'd give this 5 stars and it would be my main weather app, but as it is now, I need to uninstall it.
Look no further After a well known weather service ruined their app I went looking for a replacement: none were satisfactory, even paid versions. Then I found Eye in Sky. Excellent location accuracy, quick to load, great icon sets, fine grained customization. Even has sunrise /sunset data! I'm sticking with it, and I think you'll be happy, too. Great work, dev!
