Review from Brandon McMahon
New update is awesome Great job the new update fantastic, info is much more useful and UI is much more friendly
I just got the Galaxy S8+. I had the S7 with MM OS before this and had no issues. With the S8+, the Weather Channel gives me a black screen 3 time out of 5. The only way to clear it and get it to work when this happens is to flush the memory. This usually happens after I turn data back on after it's been off a while.
Update: You have serious issues with this app: settings aren't saved. I can only assume there is a conflict with this app and weather underground. The real time updates doesn't update. The wrong town hours temperature is still in the notification area hours after leaving. I'm going to use the other app since it works. I use this app while driving to be notified on upcoming weather events.
Overall, not bad. The 2 issues that I would like to see addressed: 1) Having to sort through every city in my search history to look at the one or two I might check more regularly. There should be an option to save favorites or something. 2) Ongoing temperature notification turns off randomly. Very annoying.
Widget is always blank lately. The 1x1 widget appears blank now most of the time, since 2-3 months ago. Sometimes touching it will make it refresh, but most of the time that does NOT work so you have to completely remove and re-add it to your home screen. This started happening on my old Galaxy S6, it's now occuring on my new S8, and it's been happening on my g/f's S7 also. I liked this app's widgets better, but I'm tired of seeing nothing, so I'm uninstalling and moving to Weather Bug.
Some of the new changes are not helpful. I too have to wait for data to show up for my forecast. The storm tracking circles on the radar can be turned off, but the next you are in the app, they are back. I would like a widget with the time. I use another weather widget since it has the time too.
Glad to see the direction of travel icons back. Would like to have an option to temporarily dismiss them. The major problem I still have is that when I pinch the screen to zoom in or out the screen floats wildly. I'm using a Motorola Z Force Android.
