5.0 out of 5 stars Great weather app. September 24, 2011
By K Pauls

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.

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good app.
I like this weather app. Activating weather maps used to crash my old Fire 7" tablet, but not my newer 8.9 HD. Would like to see predicted weather maps in motion added.
