Ratings and Reviews
Poor storm display
The app is very user friendly and the general display is good, however the Stormtracker system is useless. The map display is good, but The storms only appear as white blobs on the map and you cannot track them at all. The previous mapping system of weatherSA was perfect as you could follow exactly where the storm is and where it will go in half and hour or one hour all in real time. Please could you fix this or at least go back to the old system.... it was a million times better.
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?
Just can’t get it right.
The website is very pretty and I suppose it is personal taste that makes you like it or not. Despite the pretty website, their forecasting hasn’t improved and it has in actual fact gone backwards, as they can’t even get the temperatures right anymore - to say it is 12C when it is 6C at 6h00!
Why insist that it will rain when it is clearly not going to rain for the next 10, 12, 20 hours or more! Why don’t you indicate what you forecast and what really happened on a daily basis?
