Was great but is falling apart and needs to be updated
I have really liked this app in the past, because of the ability to not only see San Francisco microclimates but also to watch how they are projected to change over the day. However, this app has not been updated since 2015, and one by one the locations are dropping out so four of them currently don't have any data associated with them. It's gradually falling apart. Update: I managed to contact the developer and let him know about the problem and he says he plans to update it in the next few weeks, so stay tuned... my review will certainly switch to 5 stars when the problem is fixed.
Best SF weather app
And overall wonderful concept. It's the best demonstration of keeping apps simple and to the point. I tell everyone about it as a good example of ux design.
As for feedback, it's pretty clear what the colors mean. Plus it gives you temp numbers, so I don't know what others are complaining about.
My only ask is to know about the rain (I don't know why people want to know about fog). This basically let's me know if I need an umbrella or not. Other than that, well done :)
I'm so happy a friend introduced this app to me. I'm super heat sensitive and am always wondering what the temperature is like outside of my fresh foggy outer richmond. Today there's 30 degrees difference between my district and other parts of the city! This is such an awesome app and so useful. Helps me plan what to wear if going to hotter inner parts of the city. Never could tell the real temperature looking at basic weather app or even online sources. Highly suggest this app if you live or visit SF!
