Ratings and Reviews
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?
While I can see that the intention of this app is good, it is overall a poor app. Probably should have been tested by a bigger pool of people before releasing it as it needs just a few tweaks to turn it into an excellent app.
It is very very slow to respond.
The Atlantic Charts are missing - I am used to having these so that I can interpret the weather myself.
The Rainfall radar shows no rain when there is light rain falling on me.
The Predicted Rainfall has said ‘no rain’ when it the day turned out to have light rain - this happened twice.
It would be good to have all the day’s forecast summarised in one page, rather than having to tap forward and back to lots of pages - making the icons smaller would be one way to do this.
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.
