I'm disappointed. Other reviews said it was great, must be friends. I had higher hopes.
The description says only professionally installed weather stations mostly at airports. The five stations near me are in residential neighborhoods (see below) and no where near an airport. These are by far the very closest weather stations of any app I've tried. So that's a plus.
The app is $2.99 and the advanced widget notification is Additional $ (and within the app it does not explain what that is so why would I pay for it). Plus they have made up cities. I allowed the app to use my location while using the app (that's the BIGGEST plus it does not use my location always) and the locations extremely close to me have these ridiculous city names that are actually neighborhoods not cities. And not even correct neighborhoods in some cases. Close by not correct. Neighborhood names are fine but don't List this as cities.
UI is nice. Graphs are nice. Globe is fine.
As for the map it would not zoom in enough to confirm a decent approximation of the pin location. The only time you see that is when you set your location.
Btw, the website link doesn't work within the app.
I like it but...
I like the forecast and easy way to see hourly forecast and switch cities. Very fast to get a great idea.
Maps, however are not really good. Grey on grey map background results in poor visibility of current rain system. We are right now under one and it is very hard to see. Also if I go to precipitation map, why take me to the cloud cover again next time?
Weather report is accurate too I check this app for weather in San Diego and Paris
This is the best app for weather reporting I have seen
I've seen a lot of weather apps
This is by far the most comprehensive I have seen
