I really liked shadow weather at first. The widget options were clean and to the point. However, after a while, one of the widgets stopped updating automatically, and I would have to open the app to get it to update. I would use this app to plan my clothing for the day and started to notice I felt way hotter than the "75°" it proclaimed. I don't know where it gets its data from, but it has been wrong for about two weeks now so I'm done with it. Also, you can not specify location.

Dropped 2 stars No longer getting notifications for severe alerts or lightning. I cleared all data and uninstalled and reinstalled. Again still a great weather app. Would be awesome if it could integrate with Android Auto. I think that would cement it as the best. Found my Dark Sky replacement. This thing rocks and the developer is responsive and will add features that you suggest! SPC Outlooks are a great addition to the maps and the forecast is typically very accurate.

I am in the middle of transitioning between severe alerts providers. The expired alerts will stop when I finish that transition. You should only get one notification per alert. You get a notification if an alert is modified. So it might look like the same alert, but maybe it was extended or changed. For more email me; I only get 350 letters.

Was using this for years, but then it started demanding I turn on my location and use Google services. There is a prompt with no thanks as an option but it dismisses the prompt and comes right back. So it forces you to turn it on or in my case, decide enough is enough and delete the app. I should be able to manually specify locations. Edit: After reading the dev response, I reinstalled to work out the issue. Was going to email the dev, but sorted it myself.

hi, i have had to deal with the issue before, its a google prompt. you can manually specify locations in the app! you can even remove the gps location and that will stop the prompt. i think removing location permissions will also work. if youre interested, please email me so i can help you resolve the issue!
