Ratings and Reviews
Good overall but needs a few tweaks
It works well. A previous review had an issue with the weather data not matching weather apps, but that is easily edited onscreen so it isn't an issue to me.
I do wish you could input geocoordinates, for the location. This is an issue for me and my workers because we work in somewhat remote locations. Maybe in the next release
Great App BUT Needs Spanish
Great app overall. It just needs to have the option of switching it to Spanish mode. Or better yet make a separate Spanish one for FLC contractors and supervisors. That would be deeply appreciated. Thanks
Needed for work
I need this for my job to justify any variations from time used for completing duties — however the heat indexes on this ap are lower than both Weather Underground and The Weather Channel — how are they all not the same? Is this giving inaccurate data?
