What's New in Version 4.4.700
- Updated audio alerts
Used to love this app
I used to love this app until they updated it. My first complaint is the advertisements: I could deal with the one 10 second advertisement when the app was opened but now they are sprinkled throughout the entire thing, some of them are animated, and VERY ugly - as such it's terribly distracting to the eye. :( My second complaint is that it no longer rotates landscape. I use my iPad like a mini laptop with a keyboard attached. Needless to say, it's annoying that it's portrait view only. These issues were enough to prompt me to purchase a different weather app, though I do miss using this one because it is more accurate. I certainly don't miss the ads.
I understand that advertisements are necessary, but they shouldn't overshadow the content and purpose of the app. The latest version is very frustrating and almost unusable.
