Good, albeit overdue

This app accompanies a long-overdue refresh of the Metservice web site, and packs a lot of useful weather information into a quite tidy and functional application, including detailed forecasts, including hourly predictions for local areas. The app has quickly become my go-to application for forecast data for NZ.

Overall, I can't yet award 5 stars because there are a couple of things which bug me… the favourites list appears to be uneditable (at least in the current release), the app frequently forgets the city I'm most interested in (Christchurch) and defaults to data for Wellington, and the app offers no onscreen assistance to show how to use it… some types of data are too-well hidden.

So overall, solid, worth the modest price, but I'll also still be using alongside "Weather NZ" -- which is invaluable for its extra features including tide forecasts and snow and surf reports.

Extremely limited weather app compared to what’s available in the US. It would be nice to have more customizable controls on what is seen and more access to data like wind maps, tides, lightning. The radar map is extremely low detail and doesn’t even provide a location. It would be great to provide minute-casts with weather like Auckland in the winter. Also the video plays through the ringer volume which is just bad programming.

The app is terrible and Metservuce forecasts are unreliable. They can’t even predict wind strength, resorting to updating forecast in real-time.

If you want a decent forecast of weather use the App “Windy”. Normally 90 % accurate a week out.

MetService you need to get better or stop taking taxpayer money. !
