Good enough but warning system not updating

Kandrsmum

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.

Notifications

I have just tried to leave a review 3 times but been deleted out as nickname already taken.
There are too many warning notifications popping up. It is a constant barrage of repeated information. I've just cleared 9 which popped up in 8 minutes. And not to mention the 20 ish that I cleared about 15 min prior to that. It is just repeating the same thing over and over. There are no updates to the information. 4 a day would be more than enough if there is nothing new or changed. Surely the app can tell if it has already pushed this information to you & not keep repeating it. If it doesn't improve I'm going to turn off the notifications as they are driving me mad. Had to turn off going to my watch as I ended up ignoring it and was missing important messages. Just had 5 during the time it's taken me to write this.
Feeling very exhausted.!

Ads, subscriptions & wrong information!

RexRocks

I have used this app for years and am very disappointed with the update for a number of reasons –
- the free version is saturated with ads. I get that they have to make money but seriously.
- the paid version is a subscription service. Sorry, I despise the subscription model. I will happily pay you a few dollars for the app & then pay again at major updates but I will not pay a subscription to a piddly little weather app.
- Most worryingly - information is seriously incorrect. Example – look up Norfolk Island & the forecasts etc are for Lord Howe Island. These islands are nearly 900Ks apart. This is like reporting the Brisbane forecast for Sydney. How many other regions are being supplied with the incorrect forecast? (And yes, Norfolk Island has a major BoM forecasting station at its airport so there’s no excuse for this fault.)
Sorry, but with the ads, subscription & the faults I’ll be deleting this app.
