Ratings and Reviews
Needs bug fix
With the latest upgrade to iOS 12.0 the VIPIR weather map does not stream the storm fronts as it used to in previous versions. I see the front as a still, but when I go to see the movement I get nothing, not even current conditions.
Unique Local Weather
This is a unique local weather app from a news station with and easy user interface. I don’t think the only weather updates there should be are for rain. If you want a complete weather alert system the user should be able to select snow, ice, extreme cold and heat. Can you take off all the news stuff and just have weather and weather news.
Not an 'upgrade'
The new weather app does not allow you to see the forecast by hour in a list, it was replaced by a slide function to see pictures but it now takes way longer to look at the day and I end up using a different app instead that functions better.
