UPDATE: Changing my 1 star to a 5 star. The developer quickly responded with a fix and now my app doesn't crash. I'm back to loving this app and getting the weather info I want. The map is one of the best I've found. ORIGINAL: This app was great. It gave me all of the weather info I wanted and really good radar. But for the past couple months it keeps crashing, even after I close the app or put it to sleep. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling several times because I really liked this app. I'm giving up because I'm tired of the constant warnings and inability to open the app.
I'm changing my previous review from one star to four stars. I downloaded the January 2018, version 5.8, and it is working very well. The only reason I deducted one star, was because of the size of the app. I collect weather apps (just my thing) and it uses the second most memory of all my weather apps. In rank order they are Storm Radar, Weather Underground, AccuWeather, Dark Sky. Since my phone is newer, I can handle the large size, but my wife and children, who have older phones, use Weather Timeline (as do I on my older phone). Weather Timeline's footprint is only 1/4 as large as my four largest weather apps. It gives them very good service and leaves them room for other apps. I wiil continue to use Weather Undergeound and I like their widget very much, but less memory usage is needed to get 5 stars.
The app used to be more reliable. It is still decently accurate but only an hour before a weather event... the functions are very useful and temp (i feel) is pretty spot on. It is rather glitchy. Sometimes portions of the weather summary will get cut off (example: snow accumulation amounts will not show.)
After many years I've knocked off a couple of stars. Still better than average, but features a widget and push notifications of current conditions that both update far less reliably than they should. Both features ought to be far more "alert" and dependable, especially after all these years. 3 stars = an app that seems to be "coasting."
Satellite image has been the same one for days now. No way to provide feedback in app . Doppler radar seems to fail when needed most. The forecast graph is nice. With the constant failures of the app reliability is at about 60%. If using this app always cross check with another more reliable weather source if you are dependent on weather accuracy.
The constant ads for Suboxone finally wore me out. Deleted, won't try again. To be inundated with ads for Suboxone while America is in the throes of an opiod epidemic speaks volumes about this apps greedy creators. If that weren't enough, the app itself is awful. Weather forecasts are unreliable, and radar data regularly times out. Back to the weather channel app. My advice is to avoid.
