Excellent app. People complaining that their location isn't accurate need to know that the app shows the location of the nearest weather station (when using GPS) which is of course more pertinent as this is where the weather reading is being taken from. The weather forecasting is much more accurate than most apps purely because there are many weather stations in one city so the forecast is more relevant to your locality, rather than just giving the weather for a whole city. I have subscribed to lose the apps because the app is just what I was looking for, and I have tried many!
Best of all are the hourly projections and daily projections on the graph that include all the data that I need to have a clear indication about the future, knowing it will change. I liked the Intellicast maps better and am getting accustomed to these maps, though I am unable to find descriptions of some lines and colors that I see. I saw Portland OR with lines arranged around it and had no idea what they were for. Pink for high cirrus clouds is too dominating and unreal looking.
This is the best weather app I have found. I appreciate the visuals showing the level of inclement weather in real time and the predictions for the following week. I have found it to be quite accurate. Once a user understands how it works, they too will find it is the best weather app to turn to.
I might like this app better if I were able to add my own location from the map without using city or zip. I live in a rural area, about 15 miles from the location that comes up when you put in the zip code. I would like to receive alerts for my home even when I am not at home, in addition to my current location, but I can't do that without favoriting my home location, which I can't do. I tried clicking "refine" location, but that doesn't seem to do anything. I'm afraid this is a pretty big issue for me and I just can't give this app more than 3 stars without that capability. Otherwise it appears to be a great app and I'm very sorry it doesn't work the way I need it to.
The map has major problems. When it was snowing it showed green. When it is raining it doesn't show anything until zooming out. The zoom on the map makes rain appear and disappear. This is the most annoying feature. Fix this and I will improve my rating. They constantly mess up the forecast (overall weatherman?) The graphs are awesome if only they could actually predict the weather 24 hours in advance.
Weather Underground not only uses offical weather stations. It also takes weather data from home users who have volunteered to allow their home weather stations to submit their recordings. You can also connect to a home weather station that's nearest you for the best reading of local temp., wind, etc. An open source network of sorts and a great app all around with a robust interface, simply the best!
