So close to being perfect The UI and information provided in this app are second to none. I've spend allot of money buying various weather apps, and this one takes the win in terms of design and available information. Where it falls short is the widgets. I'm one of those guys who always runs a weather widget on their home screen, and I enjoy being able to launch the app straight from the widget. I can pretty much guarantee that you'll need to run another weather app for a half way decent widget, and this app for the great info.
looks nice however... there are a few annoying issues... 1) The widget is pretty bad. There are a lot nicer looking widgets out there. If you're buying this app mainly for the widget, don't make the same mistake I did. 2) I am aware some data is not available depending on location but it's a bit annoying to see "wind blowing from East at NULL" and such. 3) can't open the app if location is off I purchased this app mainly because it uses forecast.io. The app itself looks nice... Google Now style cards... but it ends there. The backend is buggy. I've been a long time user of Arcus Weather which also uses forecast.io but found their widgets to be subpar compared to some other apps out there. This one doesn't impress me either. No way to customize it. You get one color with X amount of data to show. That's it. Ultimately you're paying for forecast.io's API.
Great UI but... I love the look and feel of the UI, but frequently I open the app and the data has not been updated in a while, sometimes more than a day. Even if I pull down to refresh it will not update. I have to close the app by removing from recent apps and then relaunch for it to update with current forecast.
Won't Open App is officially broken for me. Fails to open up, just keeps showing the loading icon. The app was great while the Dev was still updating it. However, it has been a while since the app was last updated..
temperatures consistently off by 8 to 10 degrees Celsius. I live in Victoria Canada, not Victoria Texas!
Good lots of potential Fix your data sources! The 3d map doesn't work on my s6. The goes map and fire maps are empty and get rid of the gross fall foliage map or at least make it removable.
