It is very slow to update the forecasts. It can take up to a week for it to load a current forecast. The only good part is the radar.
This app is just OK. Have had it for over six years and seems temperamental when not connected to excellent Internet. Often lags or crashes and needs to be reloaded. Wish DTN would come out with a newer version that is more reliable and faster
Won’t send push notification. Not worth a crap. And judging by the ratings, you don’t care.
I really enjoy your app. It’s very informative especially when it comes to gardening. You offer a good amount of information. Where it comes to the gauge if you could include the drought index. I can understand that would be a tough job. People like farmers & tree farmers would understand that number. As would some of your app users like myself. I was doing some reading and I would be interested in some classes & seminars. Have a great day and I look forward to using your app even more.
Have used this app for weather for a couple years now. Everything is layed out nice and easy to navigate. Just could use a little updating.
Paid yearly subscription worked a few weeks fine then made me pay another subscription can’t call or reach anyone for help you sure can pay though anytimetotal BS Fraud if u ask me. App weather works good other than w it decides to cut u off and charge u again I need reimbursing immediately if not sooner any help out there.
After I loaded this app it took me a few days to find all the features. Very accurate forecasts. But it says in app purchases, so I was disappointed when (after a free trial period) the app stops functioning and asks you for a $16.99 subscription to continue to use it! It would have been nice to know that up front! Too bad they don’t offer a lower price (or free) option for basic information, then add-ons for more features
I have paid for the year subscription twice now and it won’t work. Can’t get ahold of anyone to help either. Seems like a bit of a scam if you ask me
Great app for weather with a very user friendly layout. Information presented in an easily digestible manner and is one of the most accurate at forecasting. I do wish it tracked lightning but everything else is spot on.
I looked at this app maybe a year ago or so. I think I looked it over for about 5 min. Not knowing that doing just that would trigger a 30 day trial. I'm sure there has to be at least 5 or 6 updates to check out and maybe I could see what has gotten better and maybe use the app If it is that good. No chance because I took 5 or 6 min and triggered the 30 day trial I am forever banned form ever using this app all. Not without paying there out of this world prices. It may be worth it but I'll never know with this Business model.
