    Really dislike this new version. Old 2.2 was much better. This version does not show dewpoints, and only a5 day extended forecast instead of the 10 day outlook on the old one. Give me back version 2.2! 2/23/15 Ok, I've figured out how to get a 10 day forecast but not the dew point. But the app hangs up constantly, has trouble shutting down and when it starts, it's usually not on my home city, even tho the tile on the start menu shows my home town info. But for last 2 days the tile has been completely blank much of the time.

    I love the visual refresh on this app, and it provides the best weather information with the most details. There is a slight problem, however. It crashes everytime I swipe over to the "general" menu in settings. Please fix this soon.

    To many alerts that are exactly the same, would like not to be reminded every time I display my screen a new notification that isn't new and or repeats another. It made me turn them off meaning it's pointless. I liked the idea until it kept blowing up my notifications menu

    I miss the line graph on the 10 day view
  • by Jenny 3/3/2015
    Bring back the extended 10 day forecast in a graph form NOT day by day.

    Please make a way to get rid of ads. These are very distracting and frustrating. No one should be bothered by ads for detergent when they are trying to read our get the latest weather alerts.

    Only issue is logging in to set up the alerts i can get. Would like to be notified when there is an amber alert like i do with rain.

    Excellent, but every time I try to correct my address, it goes back to the wrong one. Same weather, pretty much, but wrong neighborhood!
