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.

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.

PLEASE!!! Go back to the old format!! It was much easier to get weekly forecasts and weather maps. This one is too much like Weather Bug, which is why I always used AccuWeather instead. Now I don't want to use either one!

I used this app on my Kindle Fire until today. Downloaded the "update" and was immediately disappointed. Change isn't always a good thing.
