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.

While this app looks great, I too will not install this without knowing why it wants so many unnecessary permissions.

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!

After getting an email from Amazon saying the old app was no longer updatable and to download this one I wish I hadn't. Maps will not load no matter what location I use. Will be searching for a better weather app.

I got this app because of the high ranking and after reading some of the great reviews replacing a different weather app that was less User friendly. I did like this one until a resent update by the developers (3-23-2013) and was considering purchasing the "Pro " version. Well that thought went down the tubes with this NEW VERSION.... IT 'S TERRIBLE! Why did you people feel the need to mess with a good thing when you have it going? I will be finding another Wx app and sending this one to the junk pile... So sad....
