Needs Apple Watch capabilities

4
Love the station, the app, but it needs an Apple Watch app and complications.
By JollyRodger

Would love an Apple Watch app

Agree with what others have said. The station and app are wonderful. All that’s missing is Apple Watch integration with complications. Would much rather see the weather at my home via Tempest than whatever the Weather app shows.

So much data, so underdeveloped a graphing interface.

3
The app has nice front end main pages, but if you want to dive into the data, it’s severely lacking. The graphing UI is clunky, slow, and barely seems to support multitouch. I have a $30 Govee sensor that presents temp and humidity data in a far better fashion in its app. Honestly, it seems like a pretty unrefined port from another platform. Some suggestions: Leverage the powerful multitouch UI capabilities of iOS to make data exploration more seamless (eg live horizontal / time and vertical / scale pinch to zoom). Allow custom graphs overlaying any number of data features at a time, or stacking graphs to show multiple features in time sync. Build data graphing / trends into the main pages. Just check out a Bloomberg terminal or news show to see some very effective and compact text and graphical hybrid data presentation. I look forward to what the developers can do with all the data they have to share from a very nice piece of hardware.

Happy weather nut

I have this running alongside a few other stations (Davis VV2 and AmbientW). The hardware is accurate and far more compact than competitors. And however this happens, the local forecasts have been more accurate than some weather apps. We are on a high plateau and lighting detection works well. Set-up and WI-FI connection were effortless. The APP is stable - and finally found the historical graphing functions.

Great weather station

Would like to to see weekly and monthly rain totals. But nice app overall.

Notifications

3
Having owned a couple of Davis weather stations, I really appreciate the technological advances the Tempest system provides. I’m having a problem with the app however. Notifications are spotty. Sometimes they work and sometimes not. Settings are all correct but many times, I don’t get lightning notifications but when I check, lightning has been detected.

Detailed display carefully hidden

3
Tapping the device icon in the upper right gave me more detail. It would be great if the history tab also had graphical details as well, graphing by minute, hour, day, and week.

Awesome weather station and app!

5
I love my new Tempest Weather Station and the associated app. GUI and features are very nice! As others have stated, I’d like to see an app for the Apple Watch as well as Settings for the lightning detection. For example, I do not care to be alerted to lightning which is 20 miles away. I do however care, if the lightning is detected 5 miles or less from my house. It would be awesome to be able to set an alerting radius. Keep up the great work!
By ClearBox

Great, with room for improvement

4
Echoing others who would also love an Apple Watch app, with customizable complications. Also, support for dark mode would be great, as well as an Apple TV app for a "weather kiosk".

Nice System

Received the new Tempest weather system after the delays caused by the pandemic. Weather Flow has been superb with their communications and I’m glad they put safety first. Setup was a breeze: the outside unit is easily installed—I might optimize the location later, although no place in my yard allows for an ideal wind-sensor placement—and the app is very clear for starting things up and getting connected, and for reading the weather data that streams into it quickly and constantly. Instantly I have forecasts and the data from my weather station, and it has been great. I’m monitoring rain accumulation numbers closely. I have a couple old style gauges near the Tempest and sometimes the comparative totals match very well and sometimes they differ. I think things are getting more consistent, and Weather Flow seems to have quite a bit of data work—each day the app reports an adjusted total that apparently compares the local unit with other calculations. I’m watching to see how things go. The rain totals are the most important element to me. The developer responded to my earlier review and they seem very attuned and responsive. I’ve been impressed with their newsletters and information. I’ll repay that with a bit more attention to the app, as they ask. It is excellent: a clear layout that instantly shares a forecast and all the conditions and data from your weather station. It offers core information quickly and allows for much more detail as you dig into the options—very well thought out and designed. It loads and updates very rapidly. I’m finding the lightening sensor info great for safety. I look to other apps for additional forecasts because they offer likely upcoming rainfall totals and this forecast does not. But for info about when, how intensely, and how much it has rained, this app offers a lot. The tempest weather unit instantly senses drops and changes to intensity; the sensitivity and refresh are impressive. As is the information shared in the app: we see the current conditions a they develop. The main view shows today’s and yesterday’s rain info. And one can call up a chart showing the past data from past days; like the other views, this is very clean and clear and instantly informative. Buried a bit deeper in settings is a link to a map of other Tempest and WeatherFlow stations. There are a few in my city so I can compare information and rain data—that has become another favorite feature. I had a different company’s weather station prior to getting this one. The other brand let me down regularly with glitches and failures. This Weather Flow Tempest and app have worked easily and consistently from the moments of an easy setup. It is excellent and keeps getting better. I’d get this again in a heart beat. With my other apps to offer several forecasts, with RadarScope to see precise radar, and now this app to view exact local data and forecasts, weather information is amazingly thorough and instantly available. Tempest/WeatherFlow has been brilliant. A couple requests for the developers: can we add the option to have the app open to the page of our choice? Can we add other people’s stations to our list of stations so we can quickly see their conditions? It would be nice not to have to go into settings and then to the map in the web browser. And last, would you consider refining the widgets? The item-specific ones are very nice but perhaps waste a bit too much screen space. The general widget is a handy listing of details but is quite unrefined.
