Was a good app but to now provide only a 3 hour weather update is useless.
They changed the free version from a 24-hour forecast to 3 hour forecast. There are a lot of other free alternatives to this app. Uninstall.
Edit: this app is still dead and a waste of your money. Look elsewhere for better information. I did pay for this app but it became abundantly clear that the data was constantly incorrect. I don’t trust this developer in the slightest anymore. This app seemed perfect but in reality it hasn’t been very accurate for planning days in advance. I don’t see the point of paying a subscription for something I can’t trust. I actually deleted this app, I advise not using it either.
I let my subscription expire because the forecast was not accurate. The further into the future the less accurate the information. I have a feeling that anyone paying attention to the actual data will soon realize this app is not worth paying for.
Used to be very good until I check this morning and saw that I could only see up to 3 hr forecast I was like this whatever and I check to see the alt wind and it only goes to 1,500 so I deleted the app no one is going to pay 6 bucks a month for public data 😤😤
Totally ruined the app for me. it has alot of things to get used to because it was made quickly and now i update and i can't even use it LOL. DELETED THIS APP!!
This App use to be useful, but just checked today and they severely downgraded the free use from 24hr forecast to 3hrs! Other parts are also down graded! Everything you got before for free is now their entry level subscription, but if you want a useful subscription, that costs you even more. A 3hr forecast is almost useless, especially if you are planning to fly your drone an hour or more drive away. I hope this company changes it back, otherwise if they don’t then I hope all the current users give it a low 1-star review along with their negative comments!!!
This has been a useful app, but taking away functionality such as forecast down to 3 hrs to try to force a subscription for hobbyists is not really reasonable. More reasonable would have been one time pay for hobbyists and subscription for commercial use instead of making a good app literally less useful. You may want to reconsider.
This was one of my favorite free weather apps. Now with this update they are forcing to subscription based. That is not cool when you offer up to 24 hour for free and now you want to charge for that. Not fair and not cool. Deleting this app right away. Thank you!
I was almost kinda bummed have to pay, but the cost if extremely reasonable for all the data provided. I never fly my Mini 2 with out checking this app, and today I couldn’t figure out why I could only see three hours of forecast. It was a no brainer to spend 6.99 to get the 24 hour forecast back. I’m strongly considering upgrading my subscription. Good job on the app. Flawless!
