[Update Nov. 2017] The app is way faster now I'm really impressed by that, increased from 1 to 3 stars. [Original review] Everything is so spread out in the new layout. I should be able to see the current weather and get an overview of the next few days on the first screen. I think it's been spread out so you have to scroll and tap around more so you'll see more ads. Also the app takes so long to load I avoid even opening it unless I really need to.
Aside from the the graphics, the previous version was better for it was easier to quickly find and understand short and long term forecasts. Having the ads now in the middle as you scroll down is distracting and delays getting to the info one is looking for. In addition the app bombards you with constant weather alerts, which can be helpful but after the first alert the others are mainly repeats of the same info... ever hear of "crying wolf".
App is always running The app keeps running in the background doing god knows what even after closing it and removing it from recent apps list and all notifications settings have been turned off. Very bad programming and business practices as it uses battery and also keeps about 20 internet connections open. Uninstalling urgently.
**Updated Nov 2017** The new update started giving notifications without request. Even after turning off notifications the app is always running unless I force stop it. Aps work best when they perform as the user wants, not when the app creator tries to ram a usage down our throats. I am very close to giving up on the weather network entirely as they seem to have an extremely patronising approach to users. FIX IT OR LOSE USERS. I rarely check this app to find out current conditions, I have windows on my house. Burying the forecast in a slow loading section of the app means that the app now performs very poorly for me. Not an improvement.
The app used to work well. Now no longer working after the last update. Cannot find my location nor add locations. This used to be my go to weather app. It took a while and is finally reinstalled and working.
I like the new ability to always have the temperature in the status bar, but I hate how it puts a notification in the drop down menu and lock screen. I'd like it if the temperature in the status bar was possible while disabling all other persistent notifications.
