Give us back the full information
At one time, Met Éireann prided itself on giving comprehensive and detailed forecasts. I was totally appalled when they decided to retire their old website. Has anyone in Met Éireann ever heard the expression “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it!”? The new website and app seem to have “fixed” a lot of things for the worse. The new “maps” are patchy - the pressure gradients are missing, in some places on the map app. On the website, Ireland is cut off at both extremities because it isn’t scaled properly in its view panel. What are they trying to achieve, if they can’t communicate the old essentials - the full, concise information that we’ve all come to depend on?
Not bad generally
I have had this app for a while now. It’s pretty accurate generally speaking.
I have liked how it send out push alerts when there are weather warnings in effect. I have liked this feature up to now!
I have received many alerts on my phone in recent months about yellow and orange alerts. There was a RED alert issued yesterday for wind in Galway. This alert was changed by Met Eireann this morning to change the time from 1pm to 11am. This is VITAL information!!!
I got NO alerts yesterday or today about a RED alert. The most important alert and this is when the app let me down.
Not on iPhone SE or if you’re blind
This doesn’t work fully on my iPhone SE which has a small screen. The reason I bought it. The rainfall graph is half off the screen and there is no search button in the location search so you can’t search.
It’s also completely inaccessible to blind users using VoiceOver. It’s like one big screen with everything in it including hidden error messages. And most buttons are unlabelled so it’s completely unusable.
Functionality is all there though and I find the weather predictions are way better than YR or Dark Sky which are a complete work of fiction even regarding what the weather is right now.
