It's great to see this application available for my old Android smartphone again. Wish they'd improve the radar map options, such as the overlay options. I also would like to see better status bar data including the location, temperature, and weather conditions along with the ability to update with the current location. I'd like to see an improvement in the radar map including more overlays and other options including a combination of storm and overcast clouds.

Awful. Downloaded this latest version onto my new phone. It is so counter intuitive that I took it back off. The previous version worked great, and was our go-to weather app. Even when we traveled, we just changed the zip code to monitor the weather in that region. My wife still has the previous version and will continue to use it until forced to update. Not sure why the developers felt the need to break a perfectly good app. Trying some others, but missing Storm Team 8.

Loved the old app. The update feels disorganized and not very user friendly. Plus some of it appears to go off screen. It takes awhile to find what you're looking for. I miss swiping through the options to quickly and easily locate the 8-day, hourly, and video forecasts. I've been getting so annoyed with this app, I just pull up the website or use a different app. I'm sad to say it but this one's getting deleted for now. Hopefully it'll improve again in the future.
