  • Terribly slow

    By Squashdaddy
    Map animation takes 30-60 seconds to load. Even after it finally loads the animations are choppy and slow. I changed settings in the advanced section and it made no difference in loading speed. Junk.
  • Great radar app

    By N8_302
    Crystal clear radar and lots of layer options
  • No drought layer

    By Ricko453
    Waited a year for the return of the drought layer, a feature offered before the grandiose upgrade. Still not available. It has been deleted.
  • Doesn’t load

    Just spins and radar never loads. Useless.

  • Apple Watch

    By mzxfr
    I purchased this app because it was rated best for Apple Watch. It does not work with Apple Watch contrary to the information listed. Refund?
  • Features removed slowly over time with each update

    By mrLuckySevens
    When I first purchased this app it was packed full of features and like many others, I too noticed that with each update, fewer and fewer options were available or now required in-app purchases to re-enable features I used to have. Even worse now for me is that none of the layers are visible thus making the app useless. Skip it and find another weather app (unless you like the hassle lol).
  • Lightning Alerts

    Lightning Alerts are old technology. Some apps it's free now. Just search. Lightning Alerts are an In-App-Purchase in this app )-:

    This app is extremely valuable and informative for conditions around your home.
  • Menu Problem

    By MrNifty
    When I look up my current locations weather, I cant close the menu. No matter how many time I press the “X” it doesn’t close. Which causes me to no be able to get into any other menus. Love this app but it’s rather frustrating having to force close the app and reopen it to get the menu to go away.
