Ratings and Reviews
There’s no system dark mode.
On my widget list, WarnWetter is the only app that’s not updated to dark mode support. :(
The UI is awful and I actually have to purchase the product version for every device separately. I have no idea where things are and the buttons and interface elements are not refined...
Extremely useful weather app for Germany
Was happy to find that it offers more than just weather warnings but detailed forecasts and current conditions. Very nicely designed.
