5.0 out of 5 stars IT'S A KEEPER 27 Oct. 2013
By Nell

I have tried most of the weather apps for my Fire HD. All have been removed. The BBC weather app stays. It works perfectly, it's simple to use, it's not cluttered like some. Most importantly it actually recognizes my village not a town that is 4 miles away.

This will be staying. I highly recommend this app. Another consideration is it does not require an A4 sheet of permissions that some other free apps do.

So a thank you to the developers at the BBC.

This is one of those apps that I use every day, as it allows instant access to essential weather facts that relate specifically to a chosen locality and updates occur at regular intervals during the day.

The interface is extremely intuitive allowing for speedy navigation and it performs very well indeed on my Kindle Fire HD.

The fact that several different locations of the user's choice can be added to the menu adds to its overall usefulness and speed of access.

There are links to other BBC websites directly from the app.

Most importantly, especially in view of the difficult weather conditions that the UK is experiencing at the time of writing this review, there is a link to weather warnings, which can prove to be a potential life saver for those with a need to venture out into vulnerable regions.

An excellent app that is a credit to the BBC and that I would recommend to anyone looking for the ultimate weather app.

5.0 out of 5 stars best weather app I've found 6 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase
I'm not exaggerating - the BBC weather app is the best one I've found. I've had the version from Google Play for my mobile phone for ages, so when I found it available for Kindle Fire I had to have it. Yes, other apps will give predictions for further ahead, but this one is more accurate for short range and updates regularly.
