Weather app and your privacy
To display weather in your current location just activate the location services on your device. You'll find them in Settings>Privacy>Location Services.
Don't worry, your precise location is not shared with the BBC. The app just chooses the closest location where weather information is available.
This info is kept anonymous, secure and we won't share it with anyone. No other personal data relating to you will be sent to the BBC either (for instance, a username, email address or unique device identifier).
If you don't want the BBC Weather app to display the weather at your current location just go to Settings>Privacy>Locations Services>BBC Weather. Then where it says "Allow location access" select "Never".
Having a BBC account offers a safe and secure way to add up to 10 locations which you can access on other devices when you sign in. To find out more about getting your own BBC account and what it lets you do, then go to https://www.bbc.co.uk/usingthebbc/account.

Does the impossible - predicts British weather
I loaded this after giving up on the Apple weather app, which is as reliable as a piece of seaweed. The information is from the met office, so it's the best forecast available, and is accurate over the next few days. I use it every day, and I get caught by unexpected rain less than once a month.
It's detailed, with hourly summaries (temp., wind, rain probability) for 7 days in a neat display. It's also very localised, cities are broken into districts about 1 mile across. It will automatically give the forecast for your current position, but you can look up other UK locations, and store them if you want.
The Met Office app uses the same data, but the interface is poor. Weather Radar can be useful to see predicted rain storm paths if you're going to be travelling.
Can’t forecast the next hour
How on earth do you get away with getting the weather wrong so much. If anyone done there job as bad as you do they would be sack. I’m a roofer so depend on the weather and you can’t forecast the next hour never mind a day or a week in advance. Your a joke. I lose jobs cause your forecasting thunderstorm and rain and it’s bone dry outside not a sign of thunder storms. And what do you know when it gets to 9 o’clock when the rain is supposed to be starting you change the report and move the rain to 12 o’clock. So please explain to me how at 8 o’clock you couldn’t forecast what was happening at 9 o’clock but you can forecast what’s happening at 12 o’clock. And when it’s clear you can’t forecast the next hour how on earth can you forecast the next week. Your joke and as far as I can see you just guess or look outside like the rest us. The difference is I don’t have thousands of people depending on me to give them good advice and seen as your making millions from it. Try telling people the truth you can’t tell the weather it’s your best guess.
App review, not weather!
We are asked to review the app - not the weather. As previous reviewers have remarked the weather here is nearly impossible to accurately forecast living on an island, but actually these guys do get it very very close most of the time. Don't blame the app or the weather forecasters, its the weather that changes!
The App - I like it. It's very clear, you can swipe across to the see the whole day broken down, the symbols are clear and easy to read. One point I have only just found is that when you search other areas, other than your own, it saves them so if you swipe up and down the screen you can easily go to and from previous area searches - a very useful idea! Great app, thanks.
