What's New in Version 2.8
Its an okay app but needs a lot of improvement. Firstly, it needs an update to take advantage of the larger screen sizes on the newer iPhone models like the 6 and 6 plus. Also the app needs an overhaul to make it look more exciting. In addition, it is a bit complicated with many arrows and options; I think when you firstly download the app , it should give a quick and informative guide on how to use it and what the different symbols mean instead of having it hidden away slightly, under the 'Contact' and 'FAQs'. Furthermore, the app looks very outdated as said before it needs an overhaul/new look. The app also needs an exciting and unique feature that will stand out from the rest like a feature which suggests what kind of activities that can be done in that type of weather condition (I don't really know! Its just a suggestion). But on the other hand, the app is accurate but still could be improved on as the sun set/rise times aren't that accurate for me.
I like this app but as others have pointed out it is slow to load the weather and please please please stop sending me severe weather alerts for areas I have not asked for! I only have one area but I still get alerts for Scotland and the like 100s miles away from me, which isn't really that useful. When the alert comes in, I think it's for my area but as it doesn't say where it's for in the push notification, I am left in the dark until I look on the app and find out it's not relevant for me!
Accurate but sloooooow
This is my preferred app for land forecasts in the UK. Hour by hour accuracy for our location in East Anglia is remarkably good. I'm still using an iPhone 4S so layout works for me. However the data always seems very slow to load - as if it's loading all data for the whole UK before allowing me to see today's forecast for my location. As an aside, it would be great to have a shipping forecast/inshore waters app too.
