Widget doesn't refreshes regularly. Edit after 3 years: it still doesn't. What's the purpose of widget if you have to open an app to refresh them? -1 star

Hello Mario, the widget is supposed to refresh itself regularly. Please make sure that you have deactivated the power save mode on your device. If you are using a phone with Android 7 or older please make sure that you have activated a screen lock. Thank you

I've been using WFpro for a few years as a Scottish sailor. It has a lot of info on the main screen and I can drill down easily for more detail. The only thing it lacks is surface pressure maps and / or the ability to zoom out to see what is happening with depressions in the north Atlantic. Met office app is heavier, but it can at least do this. WF is my preferred weather app of the three I have installed.
