Terrific weather app
This is a great weather app. Been using heavily for over a year. Detailed, hour-by-hour weather for any number of locations you name (which it saves), plus your current location that it automatically detects. Elegant user interface. Gets you right to the main info you want, with intuitive buttons that take you to any level of extra detail you need - tides, sunrise/sunset, wind speed/direction, satellite maps, hurricane tracking, and more stuff I've never tried. Easy to use, doesn't get in your face with the detailed stuff unless you want it. Very professional. Seems like it would be hard to top.
My only very minor complaint is that when you bring it up, it takes 5 seconds or so to load it's data. Would be nice if it could be doing that in the background when you aren't looking at it, over WiFi only of course (to avoid unexpected cell data charges). The app works hard NOT to incur data charges unless there's no WiFi and you are actively using it, which I appreciate.
Again that's just a nit. This app is beautifully made and I use it many times per day. Wouldn't give it up.
Love this app - accurate and responsive
(iPhone 6, iOS 8.4.1)
Great work! One of the main reasons I love this app is that it seems to be improving on a fairly consistent basis, bug fixes and feature additions.
I've always liked the apps that have crowd reporting so I can see what conditions people around me are dealing with, especially during severe winter storms.
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).
Actually...it's pretty perfect
Nice weather backgrounds and UI; lots of info; accurate and unique minute-by-minute precipitation graph; radar maps...there's not much more to want. I can even see weather forecasts as far out as 15 days or more (if you're down for that kind of guessing game). It's really an all-around nice app. As someone who's tried a ton (seriously) of weather apps, I can say this really does what you need, and what you want, well.
