Customer Reviews

Good, albeit overdue


This app accompanies a long-overdue refresh of the Metservice web site, and packs a lot of useful weather information into a quite tidy and functional application, including detailed forecasts, including hourly predictions for local areas. The app has quickly become my go-to application for forecast data for NZ.

Overall, I can't yet award 5 stars because there are a couple of things which bug me… the favourites list appears to be uneditable (at least in the current release), the app frequently forgets the city I'm most interested in (Christchurch) and defaults to data for Wellington, and the app offers no onscreen assistance to show how to use it… some types of data are too-well hidden.

So overall, solid, worth the modest price, but I'll also still be using alongside "Weather NZ" -- which is invaluable for its extra features including tide forecasts and snow and surf reports.

Ugh, at least it's "pretty"


After giving it a few weeks to see if I could learn the new version, I can say now it is awful. It is now nearly impossible to use for quick reference for weather. I loved the old version allowed you to quickly swipe to see the days, as well as included images from local areas. This version has gotten a graphic design upgrade that is LOW on readability and requires way too much scrolling to find anything. I'm sure metservice paid a pretty penny for this redesign and they should demand a fix. I also paid for this app and am now seeing ads... no, not how paid apps work. So disappointed.

Disastrous "upgrade"


Useless eye candy makes getting details impossible for knowing what to bring or whether to drive or bike. If you get the display to show rain and wind, you can't easily swipe back and forth between differ parts of the region. Combined with interface freezes and feature loss (where'd the full national radar picture go?!), I'm really sad I "upgraded".
