Plenty of room for improvment

The app can be summed up in two letters: “OK”.

App works fine, functions fine, and performs fine. But that’s “fine”, not great. Silky smooth on my 6S, and I assume it will be for most devices, BUT it is obviously not optimized to scale with the newer iPhone form factors. The resolution is scaled to fit for the iPhone 5, 5S, SE, and lower rather than for newer iOS devices. It’s pretty obvious with the way text on the status bar within the app is a lot larger than that on the regular homescreen on the iPhone 6 and later.

To add to that, the interface is starting to look dated by 2018 standards.

Otherwise, the app is a great platform for viewing weather data and the like. My point still stands however, as the app can be improved upon greatly if given enough time and effort.

Data not found

Having error with checking the data for the typhoon. All of the filters are saying “data not found” But the bulletin is kudos updated. I wish the makers of this app can update the whole thing, most importantly in this situations where typhoons in our country is getting a bit intense.
