Ratings and Reviews
The Getting Location call keeps on prompting every movement within the app making it a bit annoying. Probably we could optimize that particular function on the next update. Also would suggest to have a widget functionality for iOS, this might be a good feature. Still, thanks for this and appreciate to make every Pinoy wiser in terms of weather forecasting. More power!
I deleted this app from my IPad because the developer forgot to add something an X- mark or “Done” or “Go back to main menu” to close the tutorial. Also, you can’t skip the tutorial, because the word “Skip” overlaps with the dots that move you from one stage of the tutorial to another so even if you press “Skip” you are doomed to repeating the tutorial over and over and over again until kingdom come.
Good with room for improvement
All good so far. Can you include the tides in your app. This may help people living near the rivers to monitor floods.
