[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.
Update: Thanks for replying. I still can't seem to figure out how to turn it off but will keep trying. Issues with new update: Constant presence of the bar on my drop down and lock screen is just ugly and ridiculously inconvenient. Also the size of that bar is massive compared to what space it actually needs. Could maybe compromise if it wasn't a solid blue bar with weather info but instead a clear bar with the weather info to meld better with my phone aesthetic choices.
Worse than Google app's default weather page which is more functional and detail oriented. Whoever designed this app and smart tv app has no idea what is considered as good user interface at all. There are better alternatives out there, move along. (just look at how many 1 star it got after just few months)
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.
App is fine for Canadian forecast. But the latest update causes a notification bar to show up on the lock screen and since I could not figure out any other way to shut it off I had to stop all notifications from this application. This made the application really annoying to me to the point that I was about to uninstall it.
