What's New in Version 5.5.2
Bug fixes and other improvements.
No app is perfect is it?
No app can be everything to all people no more than one car can possibly be. This app will meet most peoples needs for good accurate weather in a decent format. We all visualize & read data differently so to some this app will be ideal & to others not so.
Accuracy seems to vary by area for some reason, not sure why?! For desert regions Weatherbug & Yahoo weather are much more accurate at specific locations but for major metropolitan areas this app is just as good.
I like happy, dynamic & colorful backgrounds for my weather & if they depict the actual weather & time I'm exceptionally happy. There are many other apps way better for that type of presentation. I also find the functionality of this app to be slower than many others, primarily radar. I also get freezes on that function. So for radar, I always use a different app!
If you're a huge Weather Channel fan, I think you will find this app to be at least a 4 star app & be happy. If you are not a tried and true devoted fan, I think you'd find it to be at least a 3.5 or more depending on your likes.
Changing the background
I love this app, & have been using it for awhile now. Being able to change the background is pretty cool. However, after the 1st photo I used, it no longer works correctly. Every time I try to change the background, all I get is the same close up & blurred picture, of what looks like a close up of the inside of a camera lens, with blurred snow/ice covering half of the lens. There is a blurred bluish looking sky. I tried 3 times to use one of my own photos, without any success. The background image that showed, no longer updates to a new one. And the one time I tried to get the Weather Channel's picture to show, the same blurred close up of the lens with snow on the outside of the lens, showed instead. Please fix this, as it's difficult to see the weather information when it's covered up by this blurred image, or one with too much detail in it. I'd really appreciate it, if you could.
Functions for weather, that's about it.
Don't expect much else out of this app. A couple years ago, when they had iWitness, no intrusive ads, and a relatively stable app, this would have easily been a four-star application. Now, the maps fail to show data after loading nearly five minutes on wifi. The sharing is a simple screenshot, not even an entire warning or page, or even a link! The application looks and feels like it's been developed by the two-year-olds that made the Twitter and Facebook UI's, which would make sense, since there's just about as much "promoted" nonsense. One star for the application actually showing weather, which I'm amazed at, given how TWC has become. Another for weather warnings, despite not having the range and customization that they used to. Would give half a star for the new warnings if I could. I'd personally stick to Siri's weather reports, as they seem consistent with TWC's.
