Good App


For a weather app, the free version offers so much more than other apps out there that get their info from a Yahoo web service or similar source. The navigation is easy and the option to load maps and charts on demand make the app very snappy.

One drawback is the Activities Tab. This seems quite useless to me and the chart isn't easy to understand. I would urge the developers to re-think this section if they could.

Lastly, the price of the starter notifications is absolutely exorbitant. At $5 per month (R400 +- per year), it seems like too much to pay for what I get. Having said that, the free app offers quite a lot of functionality. But I will never pay $5 for the starter notifications.

One question comes to mind, if you decide to discontinue the starter notifications after the first month or so, it isn't clear how I would opt out of this feature. Another reason I will not spend the money.

Therefore, the feature rich free app but exorbitant notification prices and unclear opt out process makes me give this app only 3 stars.

Great weather app


Weather is difficult to predict and can change within a few hours. This app breaks the day down into time zones so you can plan ahead and make educated choices for what you want to do each day. Also has a great activity section for different sports, for kids, or even if you want to do the washing, so you can see how your activity will be suited to the weather in your area.

Excellent App, Highly dependable reports.


I am a Pastor and I if I must tell a lie, it definitely won't be about Apps, let alone a weather App. I tell you the truth that this App is excellent and dependable. It gives me the near accurate report in the morning as I wake up and a full weeks forecast just before weeks starts.

One major reason why I love it is the simple way it communicates with me, going straight to the point.
I love the fact that I also have choice on which report I need, so I get the forecast for my city of residence. I live in Johannesburg and so I don't need report for King Williams Town or Lady Smith.
