How does this work?
Clicking the “Test drive now” button launches a copy of this app on Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2), a web service that provides on-demand compute capacity in the cloud for developers. When you interact with the simulated phone using your mouse and keyboard, we send those inputs over the Internet to the app running on Amazon EC2 — just like your mobile device would send a finger tap to the app. Our servers then send the video and audio output from the app back to your computer. All this happens in real time, allowing you to explore the features of the app as if it were running on your mobile device.

Weather is exceptionally easy to use app for staying always updated with the weather conditions.

3.0 out of 5 stars Attractive, but Mostly Useless; has Ads on last screen October 8, 2013
Verified Purchase
It seems the developer is using this as a gateway to his or her other apps. There's actually very little here of interest other than it is an attractive application.

The Weather Underground app is so far superior that there's just no comparison. Plus, with the WU app, I get the benefit of my premium membership.

With this app, you get (from left to right)
> Simple Settings
> Location
> Current Conditions
> Hourly Forecast
> 5-Day Forecast
> ADVERTISEMENTS for other apps, with NO WAY to disable this.

Plus, the app uses FLURRY ANALYTICS. I really don't want Flurry to have my GPS coordinates, thank-you-very-much.

There is no radar, no advanced weather, no apparent warning system, and it is a full-screen only app.

This one gets a one-way trip to the uninstall bin, as there's no value for me here.

Definitely NOT worth $1.99, or even 99-cents!

This app looks like it was thrown together for three purposes. They are to get you to pay for a useless app, find out information about you and your location and try to sell you more apps from the developer. The app is blah in design and doesn't even include a radar map or warnings of pending bad weather. Do not waste your money on the useless app. There are many free ones available that are much better and they don't use Flurry Analytics which is using your data.

This app will not even come on with your device's location services disabled. It is more interested in learning the fine details of the GPS to determine where you are. If it eventually can't find your location it will ask you to enter you location manually. Once it was activated I found the app basically useless. You get the temperature outside. Another screen will tell you the temperature projected by the hour for the day. You then can swipe and see the max temperature for the next 5 days.

Don't waste $1.99 on this useless app which is an advertisement. The last page is a full page ad pushing other apps to purchase.

1.0 out of 5 stars Uses GPS even when disabled October 9, 2013
By Wapz
Verified Purchase
This app is very pretty. The layouts are nice and the content is simple to read and enough for a weather app.

The app uses GPS to locate where you are. Personally, I don't like to share fine GPS coordinates because that can tell the developer where you live. I disabled the auto locate, and the app still tried using my GPS. Unfortunately, that is not acceptable. If it's a .99 cent app and doesn't unnecessarily use GPS it would be an easy 5 star in my opinion.

Claims that when you pay there are no ads. This is a blatant lie as there is an entire page dedicated to ads. Not sure I want to explore the rest of the ap after this up front lie. Glad I got it through faotd.

1.0 out of 5 stars Ad Filled Battery Sucking Deception October 9, 2013

This app DOES have ads. It is a battery hog. There is no radar/satellite info; it does not even link to it even though the weather info is skimmed from Weather Underground.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not Worth the $1.99 it costs June 10, 2013
Verified Purchase
App comes with advertisements for Battery & Battery Pro. I have a weather station at Weather Underground and can't select my own station. BeWeather Pro is a much better application. Wish there was some way to get my money back...

*Uses your GPS coordinates- and sucks up your battery to do so.
*There are Ads that can't be disabled.
*It says you can manually add your location, but this isn't disabling GPS.

This app is actually no more useful than looking out your window. It is just a general this is it now app. No particularly cool graphics, no built ins for warning systems (I live in a hurricane area).

The weather in the app is animated and that's cheerful, but the weather outside is also animated.

All in all it's not worth your coins and even as a free app it's going into the bin. I'm just comfortable sharing my location with any app or developer.
