Forecast bar and iOS and Catalina all running better now. Loses two stars because watch app remains glacially slow and complication temperature still doesn’t update well
I typically love this app for weather alerts and radar but this evening I keep getting the EXACT SAME notification every 2 minutes for a weather alert (wind advisory) that is already expired.
Like others have reported, with the latest Forecast Bar app, watch OS, and iOS, the watch complication is not updating. Many times, I need to force it to update and at times, it still will not update. I have uninstalled the app from the watch and reinstalled it and still no luck. All of my other watch apps that rely on location are working properly.
I’m a weather junkie and this app is my favorite. Most accurate and best detail for day and hour forecast.
This is a great weather app. I love the I can customize so many things including the weather sources- for free!! It’s accurate, easy to use, and it has a good interface. Well done developers!
It’s generally fine, but I believe users would better correlate the forecast with respect to their schedule, especially the extended one, if the date of each day were shown. To be fair, it is accessible, but it’s by tapping on the left column, which would be fine. The problem is that when doing so other data is lost and one can’t view both fields of data together. They list the high temperature first, and then the low in the extended forecast. While there may be a few days, especially in the fall, when the temperature steadily declines throughout the day, typically the temperature is lowest around sunrise and highest in the late afternoon, the former of which comes first. Merely a minor annoyance for me, but may be more significant for those who are on an odd schedule up and more alert after midnight. From midnight for up to four hours, only eleven days, as opposed to fourteen, are shown on the extended forecast. Believe I have mentioned all of this, and possibly more that may be escaping me, to them in contact efforts, but have yet to see any change. Hope this is of some help. Thanks
I use the GFS, EURO, NAM, HRRR and more to create my forecasts, and more often than not this app’s forecast is exceedingly similar to my own. These forecasts verify regularly. Highly recommend.
The complication is not working on my new Apple Watch 5. It’s there when the screen is dimmed but intermittently disappears at full brightness. I have the most recent version and my iOS is the most current version. Guess I’m ditching it until it gets fixed.
Been using this app for a couple years now and it’s high quality with a lot of good details and customization. However, now that dark mode is baked into iOS13, I find myself disappointed with the current implementation and my inability to get my in-app weather screen to embrace the loveliness that is Dark Mode. The app reflects Dark Mode within the settings screens of the app and on the widgets, but the in-app weather screen (where all your forecasts and such are) it does not (I’d love to be wrong and have missed some quirky detail here). I think this is where the customization backfires because I can only get my app to display in a mid-range grey colored background. Technically I could try to achieve a fully black background by creating my own background pack via the customization (and I have) but even this I cannot get to work and so I’m left without Dark Mode support in the one place in the app that I really, really want it. And so I think it’s a bit of a stretch to say that the app supports this new iOS feature when it isn’t done app-wide. Again, I’d love to be wrong here, but until I can get the app fully Dark, I’m not feeling it. Will update to 5* if/when the developers adjust their implementation to fully embrace Dark Mode app-wide.
Easy to navigate through selected State weather conditions using voiceover.
