Miss old app

Oh why, why did I update 😡👎🏽👎🏽. This updated version is a 5 steps backwards. Using a photo for your weekly and local weather report is a joke right? And how is a photo from a noon video considered a "current condition"? The radar map is now missing the Storm tracker!!!!! Why would take out the reason you CALLED yourselves the "storm tracker8 app" ? That arrow pointing where a severe storm is headed has saved my tail many times fishing the river and has helped me photograph storms from a safer areas. I've suggested your old app to many friends specifically for the radars accuracy and storm tracking. Now, its late and I have no idea which one is bad or where to go.

The most accurate by far. Always receive an alert far in advance, and find that this station gets it right. No unhelpful drama, just reliable and accurate. The app is well worth having

Wx Ap Review

The old ap was user friendly. This one is not. I don’t need radar for the whole state, just my area—then let me zoom in and out. I Can’t turn the screen to see the whole weeks forecast, and there are many more screens than necessary. It seems like you are trying to be everything to everybody. I’m disappointed.
