Accurate and up-to-date

Adelaide2015

I love using this app for the weather as it allows me to check the weather in my location, nice and accurately and temperatures/data is updated pretty much every 10 minutes. It is FAR more accurate than the Weatherzone app, which I used to love, but now records inaccurate data and doesn’t update data quick when supposed to. I love the BOM app!

It would be good if there was a more visual type of weather icon like what Weatherzone have done and more clearly written short descriptions of what the day would be like. Other than that, would recommend to most!

Oh and also, I would LOVE to see an iPad-compatible version. That should be priority in the next update!

This app doesn't work

I'd luv to say this was a great app but it doesn't work at all. Like some reviewers below have said whenever you try to do anything with it an error message pops up to say "There was a problem loading the weather. Your device is online but cannot fetch data from the Bureau at this time". If you tap the postcode field (if you're lucky enough to get the front page of the app to load) then an error message pops up before you can even type in the postcode. The app was updated recently but the all that was updated was a new looking error message! I've had the same problem with the app when in Australia or overseas. I've contacted the developer and had no reply. Please fix this app because I'd really like to support it but for now I'll stick with Willy Weather.

As a heavy weather data user this is the best for Australia

I use most of the apps and find the latest iteration of the BOM iphone app is now clearly the best. The improvements now required are (2) iwatch associated app and (2) an ipad version that allows more information to be displayed ..one option perhaps data on ones own location and one other? I really want this on my iwatch. Also the warnings could do with a default state setting. I rarely comment on apps or make reviews, this one deserves it. Now we will fond out if BOM actually READs these reviews!
