If you choose to enable the display of weather at your current location [Settings/Privacy>Locations Services], the app will provide you with weather information based upon your current location. Your precise location is kept on your device, and once the app has determined the location of the closest populated location for which weather information is available, your precise location is not accessed by the BBC. No other personal data relating to you (such as a username, email address or unique device identifier) is sent to the BBC. Your information is anonymous, nevertheless the BBC will keep your information secure and not share it with anyone in accordance with the BBC’s Privacy and Cookies Policy, available at http://www.bbc.co.uk/privacy. You can choose to disable the display of weather at your current location [Phone Settings/Privacy/Location Services/BBC Weather], and then the app will no longer automatically detect your current location.

The best weather app I have used so far.
Great app but...
Would it be possible to leave past weather reports available on the app so that one may scroll back to compare fact with prediction? Currently you can only read from Now and into the future.
You could split the past into two horizontal bars, above showing previous weather reports and below showing what actually happened. This would make weather reporting incredibly interesting, I could spend all day studying a weather app that could do that!
(Of course, it may mean employing somebody full time to add all the extra data, but think of all those poor weather grads on the dole that are waiting for the perfect job!!!:)
(By the way Apple, it's almost impossible to write this far down the page as the ipad keyboard covers the text!)
Accuse me of being biased if you wish but as a Brit I can only describe this App from the beeb as brilliant... It is good to see that the existence of such a thing a the "UV Index" is acknowledged by the developers of this App and the day's predicted UV level included in the weather forecast for that particular day. An essential addition to the iDevice of any weather watching person like myself. 😃☀️⛅️☁️☔️⚡️❄️👀👍👍👍👍👍
