I just discovered this app, and am thrilled. It will be a better replacement for my current app that is no longer effective. I love the customization capabilities (even in the free version) and the widget is useful, it displays so much weather information in a compact format. This is a great app for those that are weather fanatics.

Hello Scott, Glad you're enjoying the app. I don't pull current conditions into the app so can't show the current temperature. Flowx only shows weather simulation results, which are all future predictions, and radar. BTW, check out our forum at forum dot flowx dot io. Cheers, Duane.

This is a fantastic app. It is especially useful to travelers. Last December, I used it to select a travel route daily on a four day trip from New Orleans to Seattle. Daily selections or mods to my route were based on weather information I found with the app. The chart and map windows make the app easy to use and understand. I paid the $10/year for the Silver version upgrade and feel it is money well spent.

Originally had some issues where the x-component of swipes competed with the y-component of swipes, which made it painful to use. But ever since they fixed that, it's become my favorite weather app. Unlike other apps that pander to the least common denominator, this one empowers the power users who want to visualize the different models and optimize for accuracy.
