It's the weather, folks! App is good, with lots of info other sources ignore. I miss the wind chart that used to be available though - it made scheduling my bike commutes more convenient. Forecasts seem less variable than other sources, but it's the weather after all. The forecast on the maps is junk - it seems to take the current cloud / precipitation & shift the image based on the prevailing winds. No accounting for mountains, water bodies, or any other effects that impact weather. I'd prefer to disable that feature.
My go-to Weather App I find the Weather Network's hourly predictions to be invaluable and very accurate. I use them to decide whether or not to bike in the spring, summer, and fall and they're rarely wrong. As for the app itself... It's a weather app, what can you really pack in there? It's relatively easy to navigate and the weather warnings are helpful. My go-to weather app.
My favorite weather app but could use some more features Love the app but could use more features . the option to display the current temp (or "feels like" temp) in the status bar would be awesome like some other weather apps. Also the follow me feature is annoying it should stay set to my city. Instead the widget is blank and you have to always over and over press follow me. Sure good for travelers but the majority of people remain in one city year round.
Widget doesn't update You have to move the widget around your screen to get it to update. There is a button in the corner to update it manually, but it doesn't work. I usually like the weather network because its information is typically more precise than other apps, but I might switch because I like the convenience of widgets more.
Slow to load Not a fan of the intro screen and the fact that sometimes only the current temperature loads, could be a function of my connection though. That said, I do really enjoy the app, but fix the load time and you'll get a four-star rating.
Forever to load This app takes forever to start up! The startup screen is full screen too so it's not possible to switchover to do something else while I wait. Sometimes when it finally loads, the current temperature remains a blank(!!), but I can see the temperatures for the rest of the day and week. Also I dislike that it doesn't cache the loaded news. I can't even peak at any of the news headings while I'm in the subway without internet. And these days, the app runs full screen ads.
Minor bug fixes and performance improvements.
