One missing feature

The only thing it’s missing is humidity. Do they not have humid days in Norway? Other than that, it’s the best weather app in here.

Almost good

I really want to like this app, especially because I like Norwegians. But there are a couple of problems. First, it is slow to start. You need to do more cacheing or prefetching or something so that it seems more responsive, even if the data are a little bit stale when the app first loads.

Second, every morning at 6:15 AM, I get a notification with the weather report for the weather for, in order: tonight, this afternoon, this evening. That is not chronological order at all, and it skips the most important thing, which is this morning. As in, “what do my kids need to wear to school today?”

Also, my wife heard me leaving this review, and wanted me to ask why you need to check location three times a day. When there’s only one notification a day.

Fantastic weather app

This app is the best weather app I have encountered to date. I love the Sky animation showing not only the cloud coverage but also the moon phase, moon rise, transit and setting time. This app is also the only free weather app that doesn’t sell your location information to advertising agencies. Fantastic weather app all around
