Pretty, but others are better
on March 19, 2012
This is a very pretty app, I will give them that. It has lots of lovely animations for each different type of weather. But the app has so many flaws and there are other weather apps available that are much better.
The app cannot find your location automatically, you have to type it in manually. This could be rather annoying if you travel a lot.
It can't display the current conditions, only a forecast? That's a pretty huge omission as well.
While the description talks about widgets, there are no actual home screen widgets to be found.
46.6 Megabyte download? That's a lot of space for something that doesn't do that much.
The app doesn't indicate the source of their forecast data, but I find it rather dubious. Every other source I've checked (Accuweather, the Weather Channel, Intellicast, Foreca, Weather Underground, and the NWS) shows the weather for today will be stormy, but this app is forecasting partly cloudy?
I'd recommend a former FAotD, Elecont's excellent, if unfortunately named, Weather, USA Radar, Alerts, Quake, Barometer over this app.
