Yah, like the others have said, it's not good to have paid for an app on good faith and now have an update with ads now that the app has been made 'free'. Refund my previously paid money. Also, it's 2017, this app not best practice Android material design. E.g. The rain radar animation scrolling is not very responsive and something that could have really done with following the official Android uix guidelines. I should be able to swipe left and right anywhere on the image to scroll thorough the snapshots and I should be able to pinch to zoom... Sorry guys.
The old version that I paid for was better. This new one has some nice new features, but frankly they aren't that important - that's why you left them out the first time around. This new one makes me wait, and wait, and wait some more, while it downloads a full-screen ad to slap me in the face with each time I open it. Whoever thought that was a good idea deserves to be shot. Please refund my money or provide access to the older version.
You've taken away the 1x4 widget and only have 2x4 widget. This is too large. Please bring back the 1x4 widget, without that this new app is useless to me. I would also like an option without ads. I purchased the original app because we are inundated with enough ads in our lives and it's nice to have that option. I would gladly pay again for no adverts. The new app is very pretty and nicely laid out.
Bet you guys were really excited about this new app roll out too. Well you botched it. Like most others here, paid for your app with no ads and you've gone and enforced them. It loads slow cos of the ads and all the content on the home page. Yes it's pretty, but the old app was so much easier and quicker to glance at and get all the info you need - that's what I want. The big widgets suck. You want to update your app to make it look all fancy, fine, but don't remove the old app from my phone and don't even give me the option, or my money back. At least offer the .apk file to those who've paid for it. Won't be using this app at all until things change back.
Please listen to your users. Ok so too many people had downloaded the paid app and you weren't making anymore money so you made the app free and added ads. I'm not begrudging the money I spent years ago, best value for money app ever. But I hate that ads, I would not mind if the premium add free version cost an annual subscription, but PLEASE give us an add free option. Also would be handy to back able to change the colour of the widget background, not just the transparency. Liked the layout of the old app better but honestly can deal with the changes. But PLEASE make an add free option.
Many improvements are noted and appreciated. However, it is really disappointing, even galling, to be faced with adverts in an app that I paid for. For goodness sake, get a grip on yourself and offer a paid version quickly that doesn't throw adverts in your face. Please bring back the 1 x 4 widget; why was this useful feature removed? A silly decision. Thank you
