Fantastic concept; great design. It's been very glitchy for me lately though and many pro features stopped reliably working before my paid subscription even ended! After that I'm undecided on purchasing the gold version again, but ss it stands I couldn't regardless...the "upgrade" tab is a blurry mix of nonsensical font that doesn't respond

Hi Andrew, Can you please email me? I'll be good if you can send the debug log via Feedback in the side menu. I think the "blurry mix" is because my dark mode is broken. You can try light mode to make it easier to read. I plan to fix this soon. Cheers, Duane.

best weather app ever I have fun playing with this for way too long Definitely worth buying the upgraded version too. helps me know when to go fishing snowboarding or fly my drone with perfect details and extremely customizable absolutely love it. Get it you won't regret it even the free version is amazing. Not to mention the developer is always updating and adding new features truly a rare thing these days and worth supporting.

Used Flowx for about 2 years. Out of the box it can seem confusing but a little poking around is all that's required to reveal how brilliant this app is. By clicking on anything you see and toggling/editing you will quickly get the logic the developer has used. Don't try to do this while driving, way too much info. Better to learn/customize at home. Again, it really is a brilliant, highly functional weather app.
