Get the paid version!

This app gets five stars because it convinced me to buy the paid version to get rid of the ads. One starring this app because it has ads? Really? How stupid do people have to be. Pay the measly price cheap skates! The developers shouldn't have to work for nothing, and people who complain about ads on FREE APPS, don't deserve anything at all. The paid version has over 11,500 reviews right now. Five star reviews for it far outnumber all the other ratings COMBINED. What's the difference? Not sure anymore because I've been using the pro version for three years now, but I started with this, and just can't remember any differences other than that I get no ads. Because I am willing to pay for a decent product, which this certainly IS.

Perfect except for no forcast

I've downloaded at least a dozen clock apps like this. This is absolutely the best one. It's only flaw is that, unlike other apps, it cannot show a multi-day forecast at the bottom. There's plenty of space, why didn't you put it there? It had that it would be a perfect app for me. I use this app on old iPads throughout my house has improved clocks. Easy to see from a distance, and remind me what day it is. I'm retired so I sometimes forget. It would also be nice if the weather would update more frequently.


Leave me alone

I paid for the old version for my iPad 1. It can't support an upgrade so I don't need to keep getting the offer.
Secondly the banner shows up occasionally and offers to sell me the current bingo game they are pushing. Don't think I should be seeing this because I paid already. No banner ads.
Finally to make it worse, the banner ads ignores you pressing the x to reject for the first time and brings up the total ad. Then you have to reject that and then you can press the x to reject and have it just be the alarm clock you already paid for.
