I have tried many weather apps and this is the best one by a long way. I have 3 locations saved in Australia as we travel to these areas regularly so good to see the weather there whenever needed. Never once has it crashed or been unavailable as many others do. The pin of these locations is very accurate. Only negative is that I can’t use ‘family sharing’ and have to purchase pro version for each device. Having said that, it is a very low cost app. Highly recommended.

Great reading your review, really gives meaning to your work when you know people like yourself find my apps useful. I will look into this family sharing issue for you.
I installed & tried the app for a bit & really liked. I found it easy to navigate, nice screens & good weather info. So I decided to do right thing & since I thought I’d use this app more so than other weather apps, I paid $1.49. Well since then the app is misbehaving & not showing the weather maps properly at 128, 256 or national. Perhaps it is what is called ‘lag’. Can’t seem to get Helpful Hints up etc. what’s happening? I am using the app on iPhone 6SE.
Later update on app: I closed app down & left for a while & have now come back & everything appears ok once again. Can turn on & off map features, bring up helpful hints, swap between 128, 256 etc & back again. No bugs or stalls. So maybe the app just needed to reset itself after payment?? But I hope it continues to work cos I quite like it & will use it everyday.

The doppler radars that generate the images you see in the app occasionally go down for repairs or routine maintenance. When this occurs, a backup doppler radar is presented while the primary is offline. This might explain why you were seeing different distance options for a short period of time.
Let me know if the problem pops up again and thank you for the review!
Great app with one thing missing
Love this app, the UI looks good, and its extremely functional. There are many apps doing the same thing but this one has the design done right. I travel around alot and the auto location selection is excellent. One thing that would make this app even better would be a widget.. thinking how cool that would be pinned to my iPad home screen.
Up to six family members will be able to use this app with Family Sharing enabled.
