Temperature readings are not always up to date, so I might underestimate the risk. The calculator option can make up for this, but only if the temperature and humidity ratings are known values. Otherwise, information is clear and easy to use. If the weather readings would update to current conditions, I'd give 5 stars.

The new, 3 categories only, update, not useful. Living in a VERY hot climate 8 months out of the year, I really relyed on specific and accurate readings. I really do not feel comfortable using this app to help determine risk factors and safety.

This app is never right it's always off any where from 2 to 6 degrees which drastically alters the heat index index says 101 right now and it's actually 111. If this is gonna be the definitive source for jobs to judge working conditions it should be more accurate
