I disagree with other reviewers who say that this version is not as good as the previous app. I think it is much better, and also better than the BBC weather app as it includes an interactive rainfall map with a quick and intuitive slider to change the time. Using the previous 6h to get an updated view on where weather fronts are compared to the forecast is great, giving a really good idea of whether to take an umbrella out.
Just like the BBC widget, only the BBC one didn't have freakishly large adverts in the middle of the screen, so why would I use this one? I used the old met office app for years and am also disappointed it's gone, it worked, the UI worked, the widget worked and looked good. This new one seems a retrograde step. Maybe some new user feedback from people who used the app would be a good idea....
Met has accurate predictions, and I will always trust them with that. However, as many people have said, the old app was much better. The main problem is that you seem to have forgotten this is a mobile app! Please give an option to have the data scrolling up and down rather than left to right, to take advantage of the full screen length. Or make it rotate to landscape.
Old version sooo much better that this new one 'weather radar and forecast' a million times better and way more beautiful! I was happy to pay for no adds on that one, but this version of Met Office weather is years behind on the user interface! Verdict: you broke a practical user friendly app. I uninstalled an app I have used for years! So disappointing to loose it!
Recent updates have improved the features, however, the overall look of the app is a bit bland and not visually appealing although it is usable and shows all the important weather details for me. Would be nice if the forecast data could be updated quicker because as it stands it's normally one or two hours old. Could do with more widget options and status bar notifications. Feature wise it's still some way behind the other top apps.
Old version was more graphic, concise and relevant. This new version looks like a copy of BBC weather app; and is too complex and fidgety for getting a simple information. I loved the simplicity and data of the old one specially the Rain Radar Maps (now animated which can't be stopped easily for detailed look) and sunset and sunrise times. Met Office App was unique and in its new shape looks like just another app among the many. I think they did this new version just to have more space for advertisement.
