Ratings and Reviews
Broken with new “weather feature”
It seems the developers have decided we need another weather app, so they’ve added that feature to AroundMe.
Unfortunately, you can’t use the app any more if you don’t agree to grant permanent access to your device location - which they need to tell you what the weather is like where you are (lol).
I don’t want to grant access so I can’t use the app any more.
They’ve only given the choice to grant access or exit the app.
I don’t think they have thought this through!
App forcing you to have location on always
This app update won’t work unless you give in to having the app run in location services on always now. If you have it set to when using the app you can’t get past the screen that asks you to grant permission for this, it seems like they’re trying to circumvent apples privacy protection settings. Sadly this app will now be removed from my iPad and iPhone as I won’t be forced to use a weather feature I don't need and hand over my location 24/7
Great app still
Of course you have to grant it permission to access your location, how is it to find what is around you? How have you been able to use it without granting?
