Sadly, my iPad automatically did updates and suddenly I can no longer get useful info regarding weather from around the country quickly & easily. I don’t want big irrelevant pictures (a Gauteng location with a beach scene - wishful thinking). My location is incorrect!!! Many of the previous locations I had are no longer there! This update is a disaster!
Interesting how all the good reviews were from 5 to 6 years ago when the app was actually decent, simple and functional - don’t the developers read the reviews?

New app is not an improvement

Your previous app had a live storms option with useful information about impending storms, severity and ETA. The graphics although dated was very useful. In fact this was the functionality I used most often. I am extremely disappointed to open your new app today only to find you have removed this functionality. The new map and graphics are also not useful at all. As your app is now just another weather app I will remove it. Job not well done.
