Review by EL PPIG

very good--how I think about weather - I like this app, it's how I think, much clearer presentation of information, I'm surprised this isn't how most weather apps are laid out, good price too, I hope they add it it in time, I like it that the graphs are based on raw data from NOAA, I'ld get it if I were you, obviously . . .

Review by JAMART36

It’s Crash Happy - It doesn’t do the simplest forecast for cloudy conditions without timing out. then it usually crashes when trying to get it to redo the forecast. I have over 60 Mb internet service so this app is in need of some serious rework. This is a recurring problem when looking for forecasts for multiple cities. I only gave it 3 stars because it does have potential if the developer can correct the problems.
