Customer Reviews

Stylish, compact and quick, but...

A very attractive, intuitive app that loads quickly and takes little space. Could be terrific for getting a quick temperature reading and update on what to expect during the next few hours, but it needs a tweak.

I must downrate it because the reported current conditions are often downright strange. They frequently bear no resemblance to reality. Rotate ahead to the next hour and it is fine, but the default "current" conditions when the app opens are almost always wrong (at least on my iPad and in my location).

I'm sure this is fixable, and I'd happily give the app 5 stars when this is done, because the app has a lot going for it. In the meantime, it must be considered a work in progress.

I'd like it to be universal, too, but the simple graphics do manage to look attractive even when blown up to fit my retina iPad (not all iPhone apps can say that), so I can't downrate it much on that account.

Potentially, a nice job of finding a niche in a crowded field.

Could be a keeper

At present app demands constant location services - needs to be when in use as it is unnecessary drain on battery. The other request/suggestion would be to have time tied to user preference - I prefer military time convention & have all apps set accordingly. Overall, I like the design, but "always on" location services is a deal breaker.

Nice and simple

Great design sense! Could have more functionality, but good start. Some thoughts:
- Noon is 12PM, not 12AM.
- Consider having the icon mimic the the sun's movement. 6AM on the left, high noon at the top, 6PM on the right, midnight on the bottom (below the horizon). Option to switch for Southern Hemisphere also possible.
- Consider having the background darken for nighttime.
