On launch it says "Finding your location..." and never finds it. I can type a location by hand, but that takes extra taps every time I launch it. I turned off "Location based forecast". No good. I set default start page to "location list". It ignores it. I'm still giving four stars since it's otherwise a nice app, and I like that it doesn't sell data. Could you add a version of the widget with a five day forecast on one line, showing low and high temperature for each day?

I appreciate that the government weather service has made this app for free, without ads, and has made it useful around the world. Despite enabling background location permission and allowing precise location, and restarting the app, there is no widget visible anywhere on my Pixel 3a (which was updated last week). That is literally all I want out of a weather app - for it show the current temp on the lock screen and in the task bar next to the clock. Table is too detailed with 4 temps for each day, hard to scroll through the week and make sense of it. Need option for just one or two lines per day with high/low temp, forecast precip, and wind speed/direction. Easier to grok the whole week that way. Graph is okay but only shows next 48 hours. My Locations keeps adding an additional one nearby and I keep deleting it, I don't want to see it. When I edit locations list, there is a hamburger menu icon for each location that does nothing when tapped. I figured out once how to just add a location by city, but now I can't find that option. All in all, a frustrating user experience.

Nice basic weather app that, unlike other popular ones, doesn't sell users' location data. You don't even have to allow location data if you type in your city and save it. And no ads! The only other things I wish it has were radar and humidity. But on the occasion that I really care about those things, I can check mobile.weather.gov for more detailed info.
