What's New in Version 3.0.1
Forecast location information changes.
Hourly forecast is useless
A few months I noticed that the hourly temperature forecast never goes above 20. At first I thought this glitch would be fixed in the next update but after a couple of months I have to conclude that the designers either don't know or don't care. What was previously a great tool to help planning my day has become near to useless. This app used to be my favourite weather app but now I'm going to have to find another and delete this one
Not liking the changes so much...
I was happy with the previous version of Sky News Weather. The one feature I miss about it is the chance of rain percentage that is no longer available. Other than that, it looks much better.
Style Over Substance
Like other reviewers I am very disappointed in the new update, which is poorly designed. I had previously changed to Sky (from Weather Zone) as it had all the info I needed at a glance - now you need to switch between screens to get a complete picture of the day, or week, ahead. I don't need a weather app that looks super stylish, I just want the info! Needless to say, I'm changing back to W.Z.
