Ratings and Reviews
App won’t load 😭💔☹️
I love this app. It’s entertaining n keeps me laughing. We got to get some more vulgar quotes in there. A lot of the same ones come up. I went into the app today. Cuz it’s a horrible foggy/rainy day out today. Hoping to see something gross, the app won’t even open. Keeps crashing. I figured I may delete it and re-install to see if that helps. I already turned my phone on/off and that did absolutely nothing. I’m still giving the app 5 stars cuz this is one of the best creations I’ve seen for a weather app. Maybe we can get more creative n provide a radar of the current locations? Maybe asking too much seeing this is for entertainment only. Regardless, keep up the good work and keep up the with the potty mouth. It’s great. Just need to upgrade our phrases. One of my quotes is, “A day without laughter, is a day lost!” This is my daily humor!

Can you please contact me at email@example.com. I'm not getting this complaint from other users so I'm curious as to what is happening in your case. I'd love to try and help you.
Concise and Accurate Data, Wonderful Snark
If you need me to use more words to convey my feelings about this app, go back and reread the title again.
For people that don't know how weather measurements work: this app gets data from a server somewhere, which in turn gets sensor data from a weather station somewhere near you. There aren't an infinite number of these around, but if you are in the US, the nearest one is probably within 1/2 mile of your current location. In that distance, it is very possible that the temperature is different, the wind is different, the falling moisture is different, etc. The app is not failing, it's just impossible to have infinitely precise measurements. If you need infinitely precise measurements, whip out your own measuring tools and test right where you are.
Unnecessary demand for continual current location access
I drive for a living. I don’t care about a funny comment about the weather at the current tiny township I’m passing through because it will be in the rear view mirror soon enough. I want the weather 50 miles away at one of the locations I entered in the settings. But this app demands to look up the weather for my current location upon every startup and refuses to default to a preset location.
For being designed in such a presumptuous way, it gets a single star.
Reply to Dev: I thought I was clear. It’s not about foreground / background location lookup, it’s about pushing a location lookup at all. It’s not about battery, it’s about pushing the current location lookup at all. Perhaps Dev doesn’t move much during the day, but I’ve ranged across 1000+ square miles as part of an average workday and when I pull out the weather app I don’t care about *current* location - I’m looking for one of a few preset locations. Dev didn’t understand my review at all.

I promise, the app only accesses your location when it is in use. I have specifically disabled background location usage until I can add features that can make use of it. Even then, users will be able to select foreground vs. background usage preferences. I would never want to take advantage of someone's battery, but if you are seeing that the app is using your location when it is in the background, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can figure this out.
