    New design no improvement over older 'modern' one. Miss pivot style UI. Also crashes on settings!
  • by morgan 26/02/2015
    Update has down graded an otherwise first class app. Love the new layout and interface but no relation to time zones so in the UK we get weather warnings throughout the night. Phone buzzing/beeping in middle of night not good.

    Ruined what was a good app all in the name of progress. Keeps jumping from location to location before you have time to read and digest. Will be removing it soon!!!!

    This version is rubbish, the picture's and information are all cropped and at times difficult to get to.

    I use this as my main weather app it would be a 5 * but I can't choose Mph/Celsius only Mph/Fahrenheit or Kph/Celsius :(

    Considering uninstalling this app because the of the unsolicited reports in the early hours of the morning keep waking me up. Looking for another app. Shame because its otherwise ok

    Previous version was so much better. This new one is messy and doesn't show current temperature in small tiles.
  • by Styvan 18/02/2015
    Woke up one morning to find this app had been updated. Here in the UK most people like temperature in Celsius and wind speed in MPH - not available as an option. Also I've not found a way of deleting locations??? Missing some of the other features too. Not sure that I'll use this updated app now.....

    The update did provide a much more modern look, but not sure about the interface; swiping left/right was much more intuitive than up/down. There are obviously some stability issues, the live tile seems erratic and you can't set it to follow your location. At least the forecast seems to broadly be in line with the weather, unlike MSN weather or Accuweather, but now it's just harder to read the forecast.
