Bait and switch
When I downloaded this app because of the iMessage features, it wasn't clear at all that this was for a trial period, then if I want to keep the functionality, I have to pay. It's a bait and switch and I'm super turned off. It doesn't matter how much I liked the app in iMessage, on my phone, my Apple Watch, whatever, I'm not going to pay to play. It's a shame too, as the app gave me most of what I was looking for, but I'm not interested in having to pay every year to unlock functionality on my phone, then extra for functionality on my watch. Had this app been a pay once and up front for everything sort of app, I'd have very strongly considered it, as it's what I'm looking for, but like I said, the bait and switch nature of their sales pitch has completely turned me off. I get a week of functionality for free? Ridiculous. It's on me for not being aware of this from the get go? Yeah, but honestly, when you're downloading sometjing for use in iMessage, are you usually taking the time to read all of the details? No!
Deleting and going back to the other paid apps I use that don't bait and switch like this junk.
i've been using Forecast Bar for over two years now and in that time i'd rate my satisfaction anywhere between 90-99%. recent updates, however, have forced me to start reconsidering whether i keep the app as my main source of weather updates and predictions.
the information is just as great as it's always been, but these last few updates have made the app unstable and sometimes nearly unusable. immediate freezing, blank screens when in the app, forcing my entire phone to lock up, and generally just *not good*.
i don't know if Forecast Bar is trying to do too much with the family of apps across the Watch, iPhone, and desktop, but the more functionality they stick in, the worse it seems to get. and yes, i'm a fully paid subscriber on all platforms.
This is by far the best weather app I've ever used (and I've tried a lot)! The UI is easy to use, has lots of data, and more importantly the forecast is accurate.
UPDATE - Removing two stars... the problem(s) I have is this app is not at accurate as it used to be, also if there is a 16% chance of rain on a given day the icon shows rain when in reality the likely hood of rain is very low. This has led to having to tap on a given day and scroll right to find out when exactly the slim possibility of rain will occur. Very annoying!
