Ratings and Reviews
Rainfall map should be hidden by default
The rainfall map is too big and the main focus of the homepage, please remove it and have it selectable from the menu instead, also crashes frequently which is probably caused by the rainfall map too, other than that it’s a nice app, but even if they fixed the crashing the map would annoy me too much to use as my main weather app and for those reasons, I’m out.
A Poorly designed weather App
So...I want to know if rain is forecast over the next 48 hours in my town...with an hour to hour view. A common everyday weather question....Basic stuff....the Apple iPhone app delivers this, the Irish Met service app does not. For some users it may meet their requirements but for most everyday joe’s, it is quite frankly, a brutally bad App.
Might use it, but typically Dublin is Ireland. Doesn’t matter where I am in the country, the opening page gives me the Dublin forecast. Maybe there’s a way to change this but it’s not easy to find?
Every other weather app I use allow me to get s forecast for my location but not this one. I’ll be deleting.
