Accurate! Easy to Read!
I was a long time user of TWC but got tired of unreliable weather forecasts.
Other weather app alternatives to TWC don't have an interface that is SO simple to understand at a glance like Weather Line.
I also like that this app gathers information from the same source as the highly reliable and acclaimed app called "Dark Sky," as opposed to where TWC and Yahoo get their forecasts.
Overall, this app is easily worth the low price tag. It's really fantastic and I like the interface better than Dark Sky. It is just easier to read weather information quickly w/o much thought. Also. ACCURACY is important, which TWC definitely is not keen on.
Feature request: so far, I have not had the app long enough to see if it offers push functionality for severe weather alerts. I assume it does not have this function because it is not listed under the rest of my apps in the Notification Center in the iPhone Settings. I guess it's not a big deal to manually check the app to see if there is a severe weather alert. Or you could keep TWC on your phone buried in a folder and have severe alerts turned on to notify you that way.
Good, but some disappointing aspects
The good: The weather is visible at a glance, accurate, clean interface.
The less good: No alerts, not of storms or rain, none. The weather indications don't seem to indicate weather besides rain or snow. In the past couple of days, we've had multiple strong lightning storms. This app never gave any indication of them, not for lightning or the strong winds of the storms. It did tell us it would rain, that's all. So, the weather forecasts seems incomplete. The colors are also about as lifeless as any I've seen, no contrast, no pop. The interface is well designed and clean, just the colors are uninspired.
I had really high hopes for this app, and it partially delivers. Had I known it's shortcomings, I'd have passed. It's good, and I suspect the shortcomings will be covered in upgrades as the app matures.
Clean, rapidly grasped, accurate weather information
The day's weather, the week's weather, and the monthly averages for the year are presented in smart line graphs. The app's creators have put together the best layout I've seen: the weather can be read with the ease and understanding of an analogue clock.
Some reviews have complained that the weather data presented are inaccurate, and I've not experienced this at all. I have five other weather apps (call it a fetish), and the forecast and current weather info on Weather Line have never disagreed with the data presented by these other programs.
A good, solid app, this, one that's easy to recommend.
