A proudly South African app

(As far as I can tell anyway)
This app provides more accurate localised weather data for South Africa than any other app on the App Store as it comes straight from the SA Weather Service. Lets me find more towns in SA than any other app I've used.
Very nifty to be able to tap the rainfall icon for a day and get the prediction for what time range and how heavy it's expected to be.
The predictions aren't 100% right but that's not the app's fault.

A joy to use

This is one of the best weather apps I could find for weather in South Africa!

I’m very close to giving it 5*, however, the ad removal price/year is not correct. It states that it cost $1 less in the app than what is presented to you once you are about to pay.
I don’t mind paying a $ more, but at least make sure that it’s not misleading then.

Keep up the great work on this, it’s truly someone exceptional to be using as a South African.

*I’ll subscribe and update this review as soon as the discrepancies are fixed

Kite surf

Information is often totally confused and not thoroughly updated. For example Hillcrest and Durban ( Balito) for Tuesday 10th April overview says 28 deg C with NE WINDS and no rain whereas the detailed forecast completely contradicts with SW WINDS and lower temps. Wednesday shows clouds and rain in the picture icon whereas the detail shows sun throughout . This type of confusion doesn't make for a trustworthy site. All winds and strengths thereof are most often incorrectly forecast. The kph is mostly way under the actual. Durban Sunday 8th April typical example. SA weather has a long road to walk before it can stand in the same line up as the windgurus of this world.
