Too liberal

Just report the facts, not your opinion. We are smart enough to figure it out, without your opinion. Just deleted the app, for the 2nd time, as I tried to give you a second chance.



Good news and convenient

Great app


The new update streamlined the app. Seems to work well for me. I enjoy the video incorporated for weather.
Easy to find the info I'm looking for with the menu.
The recent update removed the video auto-start on every page. Yay! I like being able to choose wether I want to watch the video or just quietly read the story. Now I wish the page for extended forecast could either be zoomed or made larger by the app. When that happens, it'll be worth 5 stars. Overall good app!! Thanks for the update, WQAD.
