Ratings and Reviews
I really like this app for several reasons. First of all the design is very elegant. Also, I like how you can scroll through the day to see the weather info. One feature that I really like is being able to see the amount of possible precipitation (which can be changed to another aspect of weather, awesome!), throughout the day, at one glance. I also like how u can see the sun raise and set times. I usually don’t buy apps, but I bought this one bc of those reasons.
There are however a couple of things I do not like, therefore the 4 stars. I found these issues after I bought the app. First of all, the widget on my iPhone doesn’t show all the info. It gets cut off at the bottom and I don’t know what the number under the current temperature is.
Also, I tried to leave feedback but it just keeps telling me to shake the phone to talk to them. So I shook it. Nothing happened. So I shook it again and then that window disappeared. I got so frustrated that I just gave up and am leaving this review. Hopefully they will see this review and fix these problems.
I have tried a lot of weather apps so far and this is by far the best one I've tried yet the only complaint I have about this app is that you have to purchase the radar section of it, other than that I find it to be very accurate even on the long range forecast which is quite unusual. I have found it to be very pleasing and almost fun to use but personally I think if you're going to have a free app the whole thing should be free or the whole thing should be purchased not half-and-half. If you were going to make it an app that were to be purchased as a whole I would suggest a two or three week trial period for free after witch you would have the option to purchase or decline. I think the product that you offer would be purchased by most that had a chance to try it and see how well it works for themselves. In conclusion I would've given it five stars had it not been for the having to purchase the radar section in but overall I think it's a great app keep up the good work
Elegant and useful
Beautifully designed re both appearance and functionality, everything one needs to know to be prepared for any day's meteorological vagaries. The weather radar option is great.
Two very minor niggles:
1. It took me a while to figure out that tapping area for today at the bottom left of screen returns you to "now" time-of-day. However, while there are vertical lines to mark each midnight, sunrise & sunset during the period displayed, once you scroll forwards or backwards in time and leave the present time-of-day location in which the app opens, there is no active permanent reference for "now" other than to look at the numeric time displayed just above the temperature profile—some sort of vertical line (say marked "Now"?) would be nice.
2. A vertical line cursor that moved along with the displayed time and day would be nice.
But all in all a great app!
