- You can now share your incredible photos and videos of weather happening near you with our new ‘Upload Video’ feature
- Dramatic speed improvements to the Apple Watch application
Couldn't get it straight which version is which. App has been updated to a single version, yet trying to get the right version down via iTunes on a MBP is a mess. I somehow had to purchase the app twice, once for my iPad and once for my iPhone. I gave up and just deleted the whole thing and went back to just using "The Weather Channel" WeatherMax. Additionally, trying to set up the product is way too complicated and the app couldn't even locate me properly, despite WeatherMax working perfectly. P.S. if you go to "Rate our App" umder settings, unless you love the app it will not send you to iTunes to rate it. sheesh. they don't want criticism and don't reply to attempts to get help.
Great but widget buggy
The latest update seems to have fixed the widget. It's looking good!
This newer version works really well except the widget. I have to tap show more and then less and then more several times to get the minute forecast to show. Otherwise this app works well.
Easy to use, quick, and way more options than even I need. Highly recommend!
