I don't find the ads to be too intrusive. I like the way forecasts are presented. The weather map is ok. However, I only give 3 stars because the accuracy is ridiculously bad, especially with regard to precipitation. It often gets precipitation completely wrong (heavy rain vs. no rain at all) just 15 minutes into the future. Imho, that is a weather app's most important feature. It doesn't matter how good your presentation is if you're presenting bad data.

The predictions are precise and usually correct, but man the notifications! Expect 10 or more notifications every day for all kinds of news, much of it not even related to weather. I tried to make my settings to where I only get notifications for local weather events but it wasn't able to. I'm a 35 yrs man who is somewhat tech savvy, so it shouldn't be that hard. So I've had to block all notifications, which isn't optimal.

The radar is so very slow. I select it because I want to see the upcoming immediate weather but it takes over a minute to load the present picture, another minute to load the past couple hours so you can see the movement and up to 5 more minutes before you can see the future radar prediction. It's good and useful but so intensely time-consuming. It won't load in the background so you can't do something else and come back to it FINALLY loaded.
