Needs an update

Doesn’t seem to work on iPhone X and OS13. The backcountry beta app has a much better interface but you need to pay for a subscription.

Good app

I upped the rating. Turns out restarting the phone fixed the problem I was facing.

This has been a good app, but with the latest release the app is crashing every couple of seconds. It is basically unusable at the moment. I will give it a better rating once this problem is resolved.

Developer Response ,

Well I'm glad to here my app wasn't the cause. Thank you very much for the 5 stars. I'd like to hear more about missing features, what you dislike and what you like.

Absolutely Wow. I haven’t found anything out there like this app. It gives me real time weather info, so intuitive to use...this raw data is just what I was looking for. Oh and I had some questions and the developer was quick to respond and help! I’d give this 5+ stars if I could.
