What's New in Version 1.6.5
A few fixes for the Today Widget:
- better data loading
- fix bug with widget launching app with no locations set.
Great app. Proof-of-life update would be nice.
I’ve loved this app since it first came out. Great design and layout, clear, and highly accurate (at least for me in Chicago, it’s always dead on).
I do have to occasionally check to make sure the developer is still supporting it; it goes years without updates. Granted, it's power is in its simplicity, and adding features might not be a good idea. But maybe support for peek and poke? Or something to let us know they're still there ;-)
Used to be great
I love the clean interface and features of this app and have used it for years. Unfortunately the reliability of it being able to retrieve weather data has become highly questionable. When I start the app to see what the weather forecast is, it only works about 50% of the time. The other half it spins and spjns and times out, unable to get the info needed. I've sent these concerns to the developer who blamed it on their data provider. Until this is fixed, there are better weather apps to spend your money on. A weather app without weather data isn't much use.
My Favorite Weather App
I have lots of weather apps and always come back to Check the Weather. It has all the information I need beautifully presented. It loads quickly and has a useful widget. It has a radar map fueled by Dark Sky. In sum, this is a lean, mean weather app. Highly recommended.
