Don’t waste your money. Never get back to you

Upgraded to Pro and the product froze. No long term forecasts. Sent an email to support and the automated reply indicated deleting the app and reinstalling it should resolve most issues. This has not. Horrible customer service. Save your money

Since I paid for the pro version of this app it keeps giving trouble. Would give faulty KP notifications and now i can’t use it at all, it keeps crashing.
