    SkyMotion is now AccuWeather? Major fail. Uninstalling immediately.
  • by Mark 2/24/2015
    This isn't the expected SkyMotion app, it is an app that only directs you to 'upgrade' by installing the accuweather app.

    Minutecast was wonderful and I would gladly pay for THAT FEATURE ONLY, not a full weather app that I don't want! Uninstalling accuweather until they bring this (used to be) great app back.

    I loved SkyMotion. I don't want Accuweather. :(

    This used to be a great app - 5 stars. After being updated to "AccuWeather for life" it turned into something awful - messy, distracting ads, confusing. So disappointed... Uninstalling after this review.

    So you took away the app, asking to "upgrade" to AccuWeather. But AccuWeather had no Minute by Minute forecast. Good job guys.
  • by Christopher 2/20/2015
    What a load of ********. A cool app, now reduced to clutter thanks to accuweather. Thanks, guys. Uninstalling. FOREVER.
  • by Habib 2/20/2015
    Was the best app for up to the minute forecast... Now they upgraded you too the full AccuWeather complete with ads, which is the reason, I got rid of AccuWeather to begin with...any good thing on Windows phone never lasts!

    I don't like the change! Too much extra stuff bloating the app now. I wanted just the skymotion stuff not a full blown weather app. Couldn't you have kept the skymotion part functional by itself? Now I have a bloated app with a blank bar across the top that looks like it is supposed to be an add bar. ☹

    Well it looks like accuweather just killed this app off. Thats a bloody shame.
