What's New in Version 9.3.6
Bug Fixes and Performance Improvements
** From Previous Update **
The AccuWeather Today widget now loads much faster.
Accuweather rocks it!
I love my accuweather app, it's accurate and stable. I use it on iPhone 5 & 5s - yes, I know it time to upgrade! I use the accumap before I even check the radar. I love the fact that people can add the exact place and moment it happened. I wish the developers could broaden the horIzon on the options to dictate that particular situation. (I.E., limited visibility-this can mis interpreted in a lot of ways, how about a measurement, say < 100', 500', 1,000'. Or the damaging winds icon, this one too can be severely misinterpreted as OMG-my house is going to be blown over when it's just strong winds that snapped a couple weak or dead branches from a tree. Just because your lawn chair was blown across the yard does not equate to damaging winds. It could be better depicted from an "approximate mph"....10,20,30,40,.....hold on to your butts! The way I look at it is I used to only get my coffee black, now there are endless ways to get your coffee. I think it's time to raise the bar on an already excellent 5 star app. I appreciate all that you have done already and thank you in advance for reading my suggestions.
Accurate for me in Minnesota
(iPhone 6s, iOS 9.3.1)
The widget is much faster, as well as the app overall. Very nice!
Love the added future radar and the faster watch app. The app also seems to be only running in the background when I explicitly allow that functionality. Closest I've seen to the perfect weather app.
I'm so glad Accuweather listened to the feedback. So much better to swipe right for the map. The added 3-D Touch shortcuts are also a bonus, and I really like using Peek on the Looking Ahead section. I Can now remove and reorganize the sections (including the videos!).
+++ As always I am still very happy to see that Accuweather hasn't resorted to yearly fees to use "premium" features, or making only a freemium app.
The animations look great, scrolling is smooth, and the information has been quite accurate for me in Minnesota. I really like the little section that gives upcoming weather information so I can quickly look ahead into the week and know what's coming. I've also found the MinuteCast to be more accurate for me than Dark Sky (typically).
This app excels in so many areas, though one thing I would like to see added is an air quality or allergy section (perhaps it could share the same rectangle as the sun as moon and we could toggle between them like in the hourly section).
First of all, thank you for adding the allergies section, very helpful!
Love this app, I've had it for years, since it was first available in the Apple Store, and I did deleted it a couple of times in favor of other weather apps but I always missed it and reloaded it and now it's glued to my phone. It has everything you can ask for.
I would like a few little changes to the UI, but it's just about the design, nothing major (for example, the allergy section is too colorful to blend in this app nicely....this app being more of a graphic style, with symbols rather than artistic colored drawings.....just saying!).
Now, with the cute allergy section in, I would change the sky condition symbols to more artistic sun, clouds and moon, something like picture style, rather than symbols, and everything on a black or dark blue background....my opinion. Love it anyway!
