Ratings and Reviews

Excellent

Rrrrrrrm55337

This is an excellent app. Neat, simple, no bloat, works perfectly and good value.

Finally...

Gnomon2

Amongst the plethora of weather apps someone has finally written a sensible one for those of us who spend our time outside, and particularly on the water. This has quickly become indispensable for me as I move my yacht up and down the east coast.

It works.

Quite simply, this App is excellent. The App itself works in a very practice way. The information is presented well and most importantly is of good quality. Don't hesitate to get it and soon it will be your main weather App.
