Weather guru

There are some things I really enjoy about this app- the current temp, forecast, the section of screen with summary of tomorrow’s weather, the graphic with temp/ rain/ wind for next two days. That gives most of the info that I need from an app.

There are some things that are not quite to useful- like today’s data going missing at a certain time of the day when it will only start from tomorrow, the fact that the app has my town listed but records the temp at the neighboring city which distorts the actual (current) quite significantly.

Still, the app is used a number of times most days, lately due to reasonably accurate forecasting.

Very good

I have used this app for more then five years ... works like the bomb I even Payed for the packages . Only thing I don’t like I miss the weather warnings now we must open the apps Notification Center on the phone . I am using Apple . Can’t you bring it back or is it the change in iso 11. Still using the payed version 11pro 13.3 still love it . Just wonder why I don’t get storm warnings like it used to (eta ssw bearing and so forth )

I like this app! Keep coming back to it!

I have tried other weather apps, but I keep coming back to it. I find it to be accurate in its predictions. Yes, there are times that it does not want to update for some reason - but it really does not happen often.
