update3: new update a few days ago but the zoomed hourly screen bug is still there. oh well. update2: it’s been a few weeks and still no sign of any fix. apparently the Hourly screen doesn’t work with the iphone’s zoom option. hope it gets fixed soon. update: developer has found the cause and will fix it in a future update. previous: the Hourly screen is now blank. got a response from developer, had a few back-and-forths but now it’s quiet. too bad— really loved this app! oh well.
Every time this app is updated, I hope a long-term bug has been fixed, but it’s still there with 1.4.8. I open the app in landscape mode on my iPad, and it shows me the summary. So far, so good. But if I then click on “hourly,” everything flips to portrait mode. Even worse, the only information available is wind speed and direction. The data above it is blank. This happens most of the time and is unique to this app.
If you like playing guessing games, this is the app for you. The problem here is the same thing that plagues the software industry in general. The wrong people have the final say regarding the UI. Software engineers and developers are experts at code writing, but that does not make them experts in communicating with the everyday end user. Personally, almost everyone of them I have known are really nice people, but they need to let marketing make hand drawn hard copies showing how each screen will look. Marketing needs to hand carry these drawings to the coders, and they need to copy the me actually as they appear on the hard copy. All the UX studies are useless if the wrong person is deciding how to use that information.
Unlike many other wx apps, the NWS provides an easy to see and read presentation. (For this old man! LOL)
It’s been a long time since I found an app that fulfills its promise to the extent this one does. The specificity of the forecast, not only geographically, but also in terms of content is excellent!
I was bummed when NWS Now went off. They had clean and understandable tables and info. Even a meteorologically challenged person like me could get it. I thought this app would replace it. Not even close. Their radar satallite is streaming and it takes forever to download and you can do anything with it. The hourly section has a lot of data that is not user friendly to me. The only thing I keep it for is the NWS Discussion, which isn’t theirs anyway.
I needed a quick way to see the local NOAA weather office text discussion, but most the other apps don’t include this, or make it very difficult to find the text. This one makes it easy to read the latest narrative update.
I love all of the detailed information that’s available. I’ve especially gotten hooked on the hourly forecast as I use that to time my pool pump when we have a scheduled freeze at night. Had a small issue that turned out to be a setting on my phone but got great support in figuring it out and resolving it. Highly recommend this is your main source for weather information.
This app is so far out of sink with the weather predictions that it makes the tv people look great.
