Well well well. Im not from NZ, but i like to see what the weather is doing over the Tasman. This app is an honest joke, the radar looks like a kid designed it, the layout is horrible. There is absoluty zero information in the main screen and the navigation is not even there. Everything is packed into 1 screen. You have a menu section that should have been utilised to clean up the app and made it more appealing. I think you guys need to look at the new Weatherzone app and get ideas from there, aa they pretty much have everything spot on with usability and viewability.
I've tried to like this app since it became free, but I still object to having something I paid for, suddenly become full of ads. Met Service, those of us who paid for it are not going to let this go. You have ripped us off and inflicted an inferior product on the world. The information might all be there, but the navigation is a total mess and is totally non-intuitive. Swipe left for additional locations/swipe right for customisations and National & Severe Weather all in the same area. Scroll down a bit and then click an arrow for the 10 day forecast. Honestly, what were your developers thinking? No change for latest version. No change to my comments with latest version. Interesting to see its now slipped to 2.7 stars. Not hard to see why.
Updated app is like the met service forecasting... not very good. Not a fan of the update or the ads. At least correlate the overall forecast with the hourly predictions. Old app was easier to use. At least it still has radar links. No portrait mode.
I paid for this app so I wouldn't be bothered with ads whilst reading the weather - but you've gone and put ads in anyway. That's poor form. Although the widget now shows my actual location, rather than a vague general location like before, it takes an absolute age to load. It's nice to have a transparent widget, although I'd like to be able to increase the size of the text on the widget, and to customize the widget contents. I'm putting this next bit in caps, because you're evidently not reading any of the reviews and comments here: THE APP NEEDS REDESIGNING. ALSO, AS A PAID SUBSCRIBER I DON'T WANT ADS.
Paid for this app when I first found out about it. The recent version has advertising even though I paid for it. The interface is a horrible mix of ads and information. The fullscreen ads were the tipping point. It's a horrible app. A waste of my time and data.
Why are there ads in the paid version? I Like the app but the ads take up lots of screen space and I have to scroll heaps to get to see the information I am after. Put the ads in the free version, not in the paid version.
Critical update to video player.
