Accurate but Weirdly Designed

They finally let you jump directly to the forecast for a particular day of the week! Hooray! The app has been getting better over time and much of my initial problems (below) have been addressed.


When I load a weather app, I expect a home screen which shows me what the weather will be doing in the next 24 hours or next week, but instead this app favours the next few hours at multiple locations. Also, knowing when sunrise and sunset are is incredibly important for photography, and a common, easily accessible feature on other weather apps. It's great that you can customise the home screen, but in reality most people don't need a national forecast, just a local one. The forecasts themselves are much more accurate than Dark Sky, which has become unreliable recently, but their user interface is SO much better!

I think the map systems you have are great but what i want from this app isn't provided in enough detail. There are many apps that do exactly what the MET is doing with their app. If you want to improve offer a longer forecast on the local selection as well as a fortnightly mapping forecast, sea weather forecast options that suggest tide, wind, wave height.
We want agricultural forecast that concentrated on humidity, precipitation and also perhaps a flooding, freezing, storm, pollen and scorching forecast map options that highlights risks to crops and livestock with an alert notification that alarms hour/days before weather incidents. Predict these in terms of risk % as well as units like ml/F/C/ppm and perhaps new scales of risk to garden and crop vegetation.

I think you are capable of this, its just whether you are motivated to adding this value to your customers and realise the complexity of your average Jo who today understands and seeks more information than is offered. We need national and local specific maps that feed from your local weather stations.

Thank you for your feedback - your suggestions have been noted. We're constantly looking for ways and ideas to keep improving the app. We are looking to add long range forecasts in the future.

Still needs improvement

Since first review I’ve been using the phone version of the desktop site. Similar in appearance to the app, but sorts the issues I’ve got with the app ie when moving time forward, ALL the columns move together. Sort this for the app and it would so much better.
The layout which has rain/wind/temperature and detailed wind separate is very un user friendly. Move the time forward on the rain/temperatures and the detailed wind doesn't move with it, so you end up with 2 lines of info out of sync.
Has been improved since the initial makeover but still long way off being finished. As a cyclist this was always my go to app as it had all the details together. Now it is a mess. Sorry!!

Developer Response ,

Thanks for providing this detailed feedback - its really useful to us to hear how users interact with the app and an important part of improving the app with each subsequent release.
