    Useful app. It allows you to save favorite places and gives you accurate information. I like how the app sends you a warning and minutes later starts raining ☔.

    Overall, I like the fundamental app and check it several times a day. I don't like having to have a Weather Channel account in order to make settings and location changes. The radar can be a little flaky at times, but it's much better than in previous versions. Would like to have access to historical data, at least a link, and would also like to see forecasts further out than 9 or 10 days. Obviously, forecasts change in that time period, but it would be nice to have for longer-range planning. AT&T Lumia 920, Win 8.1

    This new app has some good information, but I think it would be better if it was set up in charts with headings, instead of having to scroll down to read paragraphs. That way more info could be conceptualized by the consumer in less time, because we really don't require so much of the big drawing of pictures and scrolling side ways with headings would facilitate an easier navigation for your consumer. Just saying...

    Smooth n simple

    Used to be good and useful. Now it sucks with everything on one page you have to scroll down through. Get stuck on ads and can't see anything useful. Just "metro'd" and almost non functional. I'm uninstalling
