5.0 out of 5 stars Great weather app. September 24, 2011
By K Pauls
Verified Purchase
I was looking for just this kind of app for all my weather needs. Has real time radar and accurate temps. The 5 day forecast is on the spot also. Takes a little long to load, but may be the Thunderbird. Best free I've seen so far.

5.0 out of 5 stars Got working on Fire November 25, 2011
By Avid
Verified Purchase
I had the same problem of it taking my location and then doing nothing. I found that after entering location, if I hit the Fire " back" button, the app then showed the blue weather bar at the bottom, and the "refresh" and GPS symbols on the app title line. On pressing the refresh button, it loaded weather data! It had lost my location, which I re-entered on the app's "settings" page, and it now works great. I have always preferred this weather app over all others on my other platforms. Hope this helps others in getting it running on Fire as well.

i dislike the New update, looks like its time to uninstall and stick with the weather channel app. i think that's the only way to stop this battery vampire app anyway.

Latest update is a complete revamp. Layout is all new. Personally, I think the update is a huge step backwards. Will be looking for an alternative.

This was a terrible update. New version is one star. Previous version was five star. I don't understand why you would change a good app.

Kindle Fire and Accuweather App
I downloaded the free version which only saved for later. Now can't find it. Bought the paid version and it finally downloaded and installed okay. Doesn't seem to want to update however. Still stuck at 4 something and it almost 7 now. Otherwise it works.
