Ratings and Reviews
Very Nearly PERFECT...
I love this app. It gives so much information about the world: it gives worldwide weather conditions & temperatures, and mean temperatures; developing storms can be pinpointed (you can also keep track of storms as they grow into hurricanes or typhoons, or sputter out); population centers are indicated by concentrated areas of light (but only on the dark half); the app can easily be set to show specific cities that you program in; cities are marked by a small, round “light,” (though they’re unnamed!?), and more.
There are features that I would love to see added, though. I’d love to have the option to use the globe for geography AND weather, plus a view showing BOTH together. For that, they would have to add a view with nations, cities, & land and water features marked. It’s the same with other views; high/low, and median high & low temps, for example, would be even better if a view showing the exact places - the names of nations, cities, mountain ranges and rivers, etc. were added.
Maybe these things are available on PAID versions of this app, but I haven’t looked yet; besides, I think they should appear on the free one. I’m going to go check out the paid version[s]! But even as it is, for free... I love this app!
I thoroughly enjoy using this app to keep up with weather events. The realtime view of the globe is stunning and the color overlays are really cool, too.
As a resident of Interior Alaska, I wish the developers would add some script to automatically adjust the hourly forecasts to keep up with sunrise and sunset. The result of not having this is that our hourly forecasts all summer long in this, the Land of the Midnight Sun, display nothing but he moon icon - all day long. I contact them, and they fix it (thanks for the update, folks), but given that the app displays sunrise and sunset, it should be possible to integrate that data into the daily app icon displayed. We do have short days in the middle of winter, but it’s never the case in my area that the moon is the only orb potentially visible between sunrise & sunset. Is it safe to assume that the same issue arises in all subarctic regions, north and south, for users following the weather in those locations? This can be resolved programmatically.
Developer Response ,
This should be fixed in today's update. Please let us know if you see it fixed and thanks for letting us know about the issue!
update.... (was: did this app bite the dust?)
UPDATE: Turns out they took away the hamburger clues in “Edit” mode, but if you happen to accidentally tap and hold in the exact precise correct spot, then you can still rearrange cities. I’m not psychic and hate guessing-games with apps, but at least I can still do what I need to. So up to four stars again now, but sadly, down from five.
PREVIOUS REVIEW: Wow, this was such a great app. It was one of the very few apps I used every day, for years, on my old iPad. I had many, many cities. And I could rearrange them any way I wanted in “Edit”mode. Unfortunately, on my new iPad running iOS 14, I can’t rearrange my cities in a useful order. Now, I only have five or six cities because I can’t arrange them at all. They are in the order added, and that is not the order I want. I can’t use the app in a way that is meaningful unless they fix this. Here’s hoping I don’t have to update this review to say that I deleted it. Will hope for an update soon. P.S. for the developer - I made no attempt to sync the old machine with the new. I simply downloaded this app from the App Store to this new machine, and started fresh by adding a few cities. That’s how I found out that the cities are now glued to the list at the point when I added them, and cannot be rearrranged.
