I actually really like the update. Being able to customize the side menu in the radar by dragging and dropping the weather elements I view often is nice and there are a lot of options. The radar also now updates every few minutes which makes a big difference when viewing the precipitation radar. One thing that does need to be addressed is the pinch to zoom when viewing the radar. It's sort of broken.

Idk what has happened with this app. It has been my go-to weather app for years and in the past month or so, the widget hasn't been working right at all. First it wouldn't show me any data at all. I uninstalled/reinstalled and then it was stuck on the same temp and forecast for hours. It didn't update until I removed the widget and put it back. I love this app but if it keeps being unreliable, I'll have to move on :(.

I can no longer see what the high temp was for the day. It would appear to me that once it hits the high, the app only shows two dashes (- -) then the expected low temp. As a weather junkie, this is a major turn off. Everything else is great. Update 1.25.21 The predictions have been WAY too off. I'm uninstalling. They used to be the best IMO.
