OK here is why you only get one star - the app only works in PORTRAIT !!!! Alot of people have tablets and keep them in landscape mode all the time especially if you have an external keyboard. I have not found any other app that does nor open in landscape,,, just this one !!! Once this is fixed I'll be happy to re-star my review.
This app would be okay if it wasn't for the ad that appears under your finger when the app opens as you try to scroll up. I've unintentionally clicked on that ad multiple times. I'm sure that registers as a "click-through" even though I immediately reverse my way out of it. This is a dirty trick as it provides your advertising customer with false information while simultaneously PISSING ME OFF!
Radar map doesn't work. It's the main thing I look for in a weather app. I will go back to using AccuWeather's app for now and try Yahoo again in a few months. See if they can fix the problem... UPDATE: 1 year later from my original review, still hate it. I mainly use AccuWeather but have this on my phone still and check it often to see if it's improved. It hasn't. Radar doesn't even show hurricane Irma. It's still the worst.
The app gives a lot of information but it has its share of bugs. The top drawer kind of notification goes off sometimes and reappears in 5 seconds or so. It does change its position too. Good part is, it doesn't feel like it's eating a lot of battery. Details are good and nice to see.
If I had to choose between Yahoo Weather or The Weather Channel, in my opinion I chosed Yahoo weather. Because one it has the same thing as The Weather Channel app, second most importantly it doesn't take up space on your phone or battery either. Any app not taking up space on your phone is a good thing. Always room for improvement too.
Really good free app but the ads are mostly scams like "get rich quick" and such. It is a shame as the app otherwise is super. Too bad Yahoo allows that. Please get an honest ad network instead.
