Makes the weather look awesome, even when it's not!
Great looking app - perfect for those who want multiple locations. Not the most detailed but then, that's not the point of it and people shouldn't buy it if they're expecting a weather station.
Disagree with the criticism about it not being as useful outside the US. As a Belgium & UK based user, I find the app very useful and adaptable. Most notably, you CAN switch to CELSIUS very easily. The date is fully written out so no confusion with DD/MM or MM/DD for non-US users and the time is shown very clearly.
All in all, a great, forward-thinking app - we need more like this.
Nice aesthetic, but needs more work for those outside the US.
A nice, simple app that uses the touch interface well, but lacks even basic customisation for the world's population beyond the shores of the USA. Temperatures only in fahrenheit, with no 24 hour clock or alternative date formats, but it does find UK locations easliy. Some more work and this could be good, but for now I'll stick with Weather Pro, which might lack the coolness, but does a great job. Hopefully an update will address some of these issues.
Would love 6-day or 9-day long range forecast. 3-days isn't enough to replace my other weather app. Weather Underground do provide long-range forecast on their site so hopefully you can include it. Possible bug: sky stays blue even when it says "overcast" - it should be grey.
