Ratings and Reviews
Good enough but warning system not updating
I like this app but having trouble with the warnings. It’s only set for my area so I’m only getting warnings for here which is great as I need to keep an eye on the creek level with the flooding happening in FNQ atm as we have a major creek running down the back of our house. I get the notification for the warning, click on it and it opens into the app, I click on the exclamation mark then it goes into the warnings list. This is where I’m having issues, before I expand the warning it has the right time the current warning was issued, but as soon as I expand the warning, it’s still actually the old warning with the old time & warning number (from the previous warning issued by BOM) so I have to go to my Willy Weather app and read the new warning. I’ve tried refreshing & closing app on and off but still hasn’t updated to the correct warning time & number that was currently issued. Also what’s with all the different colour crosses for the lightning strikes? Is there a key somewhere to know what’s white, blue etc? I’m guessing it’s the time/how long ago they occurred but I can’t find anywhere to tell me.
I used to use the Weatherzone+ app where most of the information I needed was on one screen with no need for scrolling, and radar was just a couple of taps away. Now I have to constantly scroll through a convulsed user interface to try and find the information I’m looking for. The main screen is a complete waste of space. Sure, the backgrounds are nice but it’s completely pointless using 1/4 of the screen space on an iPhone X for a background image and no weather in an app that is meant to provide weather information. It’s a weather app, not a wallpaper app. People who use these types of apps everyday need to find the weather data they’re looking for quickly without having to scroll down constantly. Please clean up the UI, make use of the wasted space and minimise the amount of scrolling required. Everything else about the app is great but it doesn’t matter how good the data and features are if they’re not easy to find and view.
A pretty good weather app but for a couple of annoyances:
1. The dark grey background on the widget is ugly and doesn’t conform to Apple’s UI guidelines, thereby clashing with every other widget. Please fix!
2. The app seems to report a 5% chance of < 1 mm as the lowest chance (and amount) of rainfall. I understand why (statistically and as a consequence of numerical weather prediction models) it does this, but I really don’t think there’s any point reporting it. The raw data can be safely interpreted as “No rain” for all intents and purposes. In fact, the app seems to overstate the prospect of rain/showers generally. For example, it currently says the outlook for tomorrow is “Showers” with a 40% chance < 1 mm. Instead of showers, wouldn’t that data be better interpreted as a “possible shower or two”? If I saw that I’d still probably be prepared and take an umbrella.
3. I don’t particularly care for the amateur photography (even though some of them are nice), especially when the photos don’t even reflect the location selected. If I want to see (or share) weather or nature photography there are loads of other options such as amateur photo sharing platforms and sites. Please provide an option to disable the amateur photography.
Great price for the ad-free version!
