5.0 out of 5 stars Works well 26 April 2013
Verified Purchase
I had used the free version for a while and found it very useful as a guide to local weather in the short term. The paid version has some nice extras and it is nice to have no ads. I can't think of any real drawbacks or things that needs improving. Using on Galaxy S3.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not impressed 16 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase
May be it's me or the tablet but I am not impressed. It only appears to work if connected to the internet and in view of the fact that this is more use to me when in the hills and mountains where there is no wifi, then it is of little use to me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Handy App 2 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase
I live on a Scottish island, where the weather can change very quickly. This app has helped me avoid more than one soaking - either by dressing appropriately, or by staying indoors with a wee dram!
