Newbies: explore the app. There is so much here. More (hi-res) models available for a little extra. One of the best apps on the android platform. The only criticism is that, regrettably, the rain viewer service which shows the real-time radar frequently fails to render on the map. A serious flaw in an otherwise outstanding app. Also, the widgets don't work but this is a known problem with android according to the developer.

Really great for outdoor activity planning. Line graphs are fully customizable. Helps you to see the big picture on the map. With practice, one can figure out local weather patterns, and estimate weather outcome probabilities on your own. I would argue, most people's complaints about the "weather man" are related to their over reliance on micro-weather apps and their inability to understand the laws of probability. With any computer algorithm the saying holds "junk in, junk out". Not here!!

Yes, looking at the big picture and the variability in predictions between weather simulations gives the best understanding of what might happen with the weather. Thanks for the great review. Cheers, Duane.

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.
