Customer Reviews

I would like to see the weather!!! (1 star)
I opened to a blue page waiting for like half an hour to load please fix!

Greatly improved (4 stars)
5.0 is a great improvement in terms of UI design. It's slow to start up, but runs well. I would actually be tempted to drop the money on the paid version if it ever gets updated like this one. (I hate ads in my apps)

The only thing I'd still like to see added is push notifications for severe weather and weather alerts. That would be a VERY welcome addition for us "tornado alley" dwellers.

New Version Freezes (1 star)
I love the weather app even though it's a bit slow to launch. Today's update however, launches and freezes at the instructional screen. Tapping to dismiss doesn't work no matter how many times I kill the app. Fix please!
