Forecast Now suits me to a T. Others clutter the screen with so much information it’s hard for me to focus on it. This app opens with a menu listing each type of NWS information. Selecting an item displays it on its own cleanly-designed screen, making it much easier for my brain to grasp. While changing locations requires going to a separate menu item, with frequent use I can now rapidly swipe/click among the 4 locations I generally follow. I did often find the ads annoying but, as the app’s description spells out, they’re the trade-off for using a free app. Most ads can simply be canceled, though some have a 5-second countdown. The audio ads are easily muted with a tap on the volume icon. I recently decided to try it without ads for $0.99 per month. I like it, so will be signing up for the single $9.99 payment to ditch them permanently. I’ve encountered a couple of glitches in the app along the way, which I’ve reported to the developers. Both times they’ve responded within an hour, investigated immediately, and gotten them fixed – that same day in one case and within 24 hours in the other. In my book, that kind of support is well worth a few bucks.
The radar is good, but that’s all that I can get down loaded! Only get thumbnail picture. No words will appear on my iPad screen. Can’t access more than one location. I’ve been trying to get the complete down load. I was interested in the subscription, but no success with that either. Very disappointing.
Great information direct from the best source there is. The only thing that needs work is the app itself. It’s a good start, but it needs refining. How about a quick list view of your cities accompanied by current conditions? Basically, switching between any of the options/information tabs is cumbersome. A few UI tweaks and this could be something decent. Finally, I don’t mind paying a subscription for a great app. However, this isn’t quite *great* yet. Keep up the work! Thanks.
I will use the KISS principle to rate this app. Kept It Short and Simple. This app is dependable and will not disappoint. Highly recommended.
Deleted app as soon as the first audio ad pulled up.
Good functionality except for ads which can be intrusive. Could be improved with dew points and heat index values in hourly forecasts.
I was looking for a decent weather app, but this one isn’t it. You can’t even get a local forecast without a 10 second ad jumping up first. And every time I tried something a different area another ad jumped up. There’s no way I would spend any money with these guys cause I can’t see what their service really looks like. Too bad!
Bad Taste to ask for me to rate you by 5 stars... before you even connect user to the app
The channel should let us look at exact cities and not have updates or weather advisories that are for whole state. You should have exact snow totals for us to be able too see each city or county. Like allegan, is a big county but doesn’t exactly mean snow or storms are evenly being dumped on. We don’t always need entire county.
