The latest update really destroys the UI in the app. Putting all the information on one single page that you have to scroll through makes it difficult to find and take in the information you're looking for. When most apps are trying for a cleaner, easier user experience you went full opposite and cluttered everything up. The current conditions, radar, and 7 day forecast should be in separate tabs to make it easier to find what you're looking for.

Had this app years ago before I left the area and loved the way it worked with weather alerts and how easy it was to read. Now I recently moved back home and this app has really gone downhill. App is confusing, weather forecasts are not accurate, there is no pollen count and after a week I had to uninstall and reinstall because it didnt work. Now it has stopped again, don't think I will bother reinstalling again.

Had trouble with the app for 2 days so I uninstalled and reinstalled. To my disappointment It was entirely different. Not user-friendly. Trying to use it for over a week. Hard to find the daily and weekly forecast. No little storm bubbles on the radar like before. A lot less info. Hard to find anything the way it is now. If you're going to change it that much, you should have a tutorial when initially downloaded. You are the most accurate I have found, and now I don't feel safe w/ new app.
