In my area, NW of Atlanta, this app DOES NOT give me a LOCALIZED forecast. It gives me a forecast for a region much further south in the suburban flatlands, not in the mountain foothills. In addition, even though I selected the county airport as my default location, it continues to go back to the southernmost reporting station previously mentioned. This is the biggest negative...this app DOES NOT GIVE YOU THE LOCALIZED FORCASTS IT PROMISES! Now on a POSITIVE note: the LAYOUT & OPTIONS ARE AWESOME! If/when they get it working properly, it is a FIVE STAR APP FOR SURE*****
I was a WU fan for years until they came out with their latest app, which is dog slow and provides very limited detail. So, I was on the hunt for replacement. NOAA Weather loads fast, looks great overall and works well on a phone or tablet. It provides a lot of great detail - humidity, feels like, wind gusts, etc in an easy to use format. Another good thing is that the widget actually gets updated frequently, so it's a reliable source for the current weather. However, the radar needs work. It's hard to use due to the poor resolution and choppy images. I really hope the developers can fix this up. Other apps have great looking radar -- so it's definitely possible.
Got sick of seeing rain for low percentage chances in my last app. I like the line graphs of hourly probability and the radar. Accurate info with a nice interface. Edit: slow loading fixed with API revert!
I know you're having technical problems but really? This has been going on much too long.
Excellently above-and-beyond in every way except for radar, which currently sucks. However, NOAA is working to improve their radar, and the app developer is working hard to make sure their app starts getting that better radar as soon as it's available, which will be soon.
The developer keeps it updated, it's accurate and easy to use. The widget is easy to read, and I can keep the app from automatically updating weather until I need it to save on battery life and data. Best weather app I've used.
