Not bad but I would love the grib data for a more in depth view of our local weather. The Weather4D app uses NOAA models and their model is much less good than the one you have at Bracknell. Even if I needed to subscribe to the service it would be worth it. And BTW well done for very accurate forecasting of the snow storm on the tail of storm Caroline.
I can't claim to be the world's foremost designer of user interfaces but I do recognise a bloody awful one when I see it. Lots of independently scrolling horizontal sections instead of one synchronised table with all of the details. The most bizarre aspect is the way that the first block will scroll to previous or next day but the others don't. On top of this complexity are the section tabs to display different sets of data within the block. Actually I know why they app seems hell bent on spreading the data over as big an area as possible; it's so they can stick an advert in the middle of it all. The only saving grace is the rainfall map which is brilliant and far better executed than the web page equivalent.
I had the old version of this a few years ago which was ace. But was withdrawn by the met Office. I couldn't upgrade to the then (space) but have now.. In short very disappointed at first it's horrible and not a patch in various ways compared to old version but quite like it now use to it still don't think as good.
Landscape mode long overdue and welcome. New, unwelcome feature, which may be a bug:- when you scroll forecast across, wind direction table does not scroll too. Why would I not want to see the correct wind direction for the time I've scrolled to?
The App has come far and is now comprehensive enough for me. However, it has a significant issue for Android users in that the pressure and current weather charts "lose" the UK outline of accessed a second time. I would also like to see it operate fully in landscape view as well as portrait.
Latest update has improved the overall look. Would be nice if the forecast data could be updated quicker because as it stands it's normally one or two hours old so the accuracy has been poor recently, especially in NE England where the weather can change quickly. Don't see the point in putting wind speed on an extra button as it's already got its own section immediately underneath the hourly temperature box. Extra features like dark theme, status bar temp readings, more choice of widgets would be good additions. The mix of horizontal and vertical scrolling is not to my liking, would prefer only vertical scrolling.
The app is now available in landscape as well as portrait. It has also been updated with a new winter background image and a number of bugs have been fixed to improve the user experience.
