Reviews From google play store

For it to work properly it must be installed on the phone internal memory. Those who have had problems may have it on the external card. (On the latest android releases you can only have it on the phone memory.) Update of review : for the past few weeks it has been very poor at keeping current, and each time I open it now (October 2019) I get "your local forecast is not available, please try again". I've changed nothing, so I guess an update has screwed up the app.


Not sure about the technical issues that are going on, but the forecasting is an absolute joke and a disgrace. Every day over the past week, I have made plans around the forecast on this app. And every day, the forecast has been totally wrong, not by a small margin but whole day of incorrect forecasting . Today was sunny intervals am with an isolated shower around 2. It has been pouring down for over an hour and the app seems to be changing as somebody looks out of the forecasterswindow !!!!!


The app attempts to refresh the weather every time I open it which means there is always a long delay to see the weather. It defaults to the cureent location which takes even longer to load. This is a change from a couple of months ago where BBC Weather always showed a saved copy of the weather. The weather should be updated in the background every few hours instead of every time I open the app.


This was my go-to weather app on my old phone - as a BBC 'weather watcher' I used it throughout the day. But the new widget - version 4.0.3 on my new phone - is just a blue box with the words 'cannot retrieve information' almost constantly displayed. It takes ages to open and refresh. Ive had to remove it. I don't always have mobile data or location enabled but didn't on my old phone either. That version 3.2.0 still displays last information and refreshes quickly. What have you done??


An improvement on previous recent releases but still glitchy with multiple crashes and/or freezes. As for functionality, the 'headline' weather displayed for each day continues to be very misleading. That headline may show rain but when going in to the hourly forecast for that day, it may show mainly fair and rain for just one hour. In summary, still not as good as earlier versions of the app.


Fancy app, forecasts wrong. There's no point in have a wizzy app when the forecast is never right. I've learnt to look at the BBC weather then know it's going to be the opposite. The BBC needs to urgently review its weather forecast provider. I'm expecting a response stating weather forecasting is difficult and predicting the weather is complicated. I know that. If the BBC knows that then stop providing forecasts. The BBC weather on TV spend more time presenting what happened in the past!


Very difficult even to manually update despite several reinstalls. Always used to work faultlessly on opening the app. Not any more. Update: No problem at all with new phone ('Hawaii,' as I find it easier to call it) so either an effective update or the old Samsung J5 ultimately couldn't handle it, perhaps due to ever diminishing capacity. Was disappointed I never got any reply from three attempts to ilicit technical advice from BBC or their reps. But hey!


I am a golfer, a sport which has to be played in decent weather the BBC weather app is how i plan my games of golf, and i dont miss many games. I find it accurate and up to date and easy to use. With some apps youhave a tendency to get a lot of useless info, with the BBC app you get the right information at the right time.


Reading the small print in the BBC's notes about the app, they are aware that updates to the forecast data are delayed. Experience shows that this can be by an hour or more. This makes the app a questionable alternative in the UK to the Met Office app. That is a pity since it is otherwise very comprehensive and easy to use.


Search function stopped working a few weeks ago. Cleared cache etc, no difference. When I type a location, it just takes me back to current location. This means I can't add any favourite locations. So apart from showing local weather, it's useless. There's much better weather apps than this.


I'm not sure what has happened but the app is now terrible. For some reason it has to reload all of the weather forecasts when I open it (before it would show cached reports until they were updated). It now seems to take forever to find the local forecast. The locations list does some sort of wierd dynamic update thing where all of the locations are added to the list sequentially. I have also struggled to remove locations from the list, it seems pressing and holding/sliding often fails.


Being asked to turn on Google location services every time I launch the app is irritating. It's slower at showing my forecast than it used to be. I still use it because it's familiar and easy to read, but I would really appreciate it if it would take my "no" to Google location services for an answer.


We all know that predicting weather involves a certain degree of randomness, but like the UK weather of late, the BBC weather app has niw become horribly unpredictable. I can't delete locations any more, and when I try to access a different location it pops up details of a different one from my list for no apparent reason. From being the go-to weather app for the UK, it has deteriorated quite significantly of late. I'll remove it for now, please make it better again...


For years, this was my staple weather app. On the home screen on almost every phone I owned. Now, I'm looking for alternatives. I don't understand how development decided to make this app worse - much worse. When it works, it's fine - but that's now rare. Widget won't load, you click on the widget to get in the app and the weather won't load. I don't know what you guys have done but I've waited for months on end for improvement and it just doesn't come. Such a shame


The location failure this app has been suffering from ever since it was messed up by the so-called upgrade in the summer STILL persists. I have to use the nearest saved location to get a forecast. I'm going to try uninstalling and reinstalling to see if that will help as restarting my phone has no effect and the app goes on indefinitely - attempting to locate my phone. This app is NOT properly functional, and the BEEB's pathetic stock response to feedback is an insult! One star is too much.


The App has changed for the worse imo. I cannot order my location preferences as before. As for "accurate" forecasts, how can it be so inaccurate! To be fair, when the weather has changed from the previous forecast, the App does update to 'prove itself correctly forecasting'. In short, if the App forecasts dry, take a jacket and an umbrella out with you


This app used to be quick and easy but recent update is so incredibly frustrating. It asks to switch on location every time you load up the app. There's no way to switch this off (why level of accuracy with location? if im in a town, the weather isn't going to be that diff. the other side of town!). It's slow to load and doesn't load onto the last location you used so have to keep scrolling to it each time. Bad UX design, please change.


ARE YOU LISTENING TO US???????? THIS IS THE WORST UPDATE EVER!!!! I've used this app for years without any issues. If it's not broke - why try to fix it????? Now it doesn't work on the widget, just constantly says loading!!! Are you going to sort this out?? it's a joke!! I used to love this app it USED TO BE the BEST weather app available - not anymore, it's NOW the WORST! 😠


Due to some recent inept tinkering, this app has gone from one of the best to become one of the worst. The weather info is still fairly reliable but the widget is virtually unusable. Instead of updating in the background while displaying the previously downloaded data, it now requires a constant connection and mostly shows nothing or 'Your forecast isn't available' or 'Loading'. Absolute disaster. Had to uninstall it.


Used to love this app, but since the recent update, I'm now sick of being asked to turn on location every time i open it. I have my locations saved on the app, and don't necessarily care about the weather where i am when i open it. Please change it back to using the saved locations, until then, uninstalled!


Used to be good, now takes a while to find where you are. Most annoyingly it saves the location of everywhere you look up the weather for, and then tells you you can't look at any more as you've got too many favourites (so you then spend time going through the favourites you never wanted to save to delete them all). Poor ux design.


Used to be great As others have reported, the last update has totally broken the app sadly. The widget no longer works (just says 'forecast unavailable) and asks for location access every single time which is a pain if you habitually keep it off and are happy (or just want) to see a stored location. Please revert back to previous version that worked so well.


update - it's now gone from being a bit unreliable to not showing anything at all, despite a recent "update" that has seemingly made no difference at all. down from 2 to 1 star. Good one! it crashes repeatedly, takes a long time to find the location, and continually forgets where it is so the widget is often blank and it can take a long time to load, if it overload, which it usually doesn't....


Oh dear! A number of pretty fundamental things gone wrong at v4.0.1. Does anybody test this app before release? Frequently doesn't display anything in the widget, apart from an error to do with location, and often gets very confused as to which location it's going to display when launching the app. Usually defaults to the first stored place in Favourites, or sometimes just puts up a nice picture of some blue sky! All worked fine on previous versions. Update: v4.0.2 & 4.0.3 pretty much the same.


Have been using this app for a couple of months and its really great. Fast, intuitive and accurate, what more do you want?! Before that I used to be a fan of the weather channel, but following updates this had become bloated with ads, which slowed it down up to a point where I couldn't bear it anymore. Glad I discovered this app!


As live in the UK, I have switched to using the excellent 'uk met office' website for weather information, you know- the guys who issue the warnings and who used to provide the BBCs weather data. I was shocked to learn that the BBC stopped using them done years ago, and as such are not investing in our homegrown scientists and hence our countries scientific heritage. Can't see how that's a good thing! BBC! It's not all about the bling bling bling.


It's great that it continually updates. Ive been using it in Elveria, Marbella Spain for the past few weeks . Things can change rapidly due to the mountains V Coast. A slight variation in wind direction can make a huge change to the weather st this time of year but apart from not being able to pinpoint some districts..this app is continually on point!!! Well recommend to everyone


There used to be a feature which allowed you to change the displayed name of a given location when it was detected as the current location. At my home, the detected location has the wrong name, so I had this set up. Now this feature has been removed. It's a minor thing given that the actual forecast is fine, and probably affects only a small number of people, but it's an annoyance every single time I look at the app to have the wrong location displayed. Please restore this feature.


Use to be great but by mistake let it update and now its utter tripe unless you want to be connected all the time as i am not most of the time the widget sits there saying there is no connection. Come on BBC stop it wanting a connection all of the time and let it leave the forecast it last downloaded on the screen.


4.0.3 update is a slight improvement over 4.0.2 (can now remove saved locations) but it only really addresses the jittery scrolling, the other issues are still there (Pixel 2 - Android 10). App still forces location search every time it opens (if you insist on this 'function' at least allow us to change it in settings), I still can't edit 'show as' area name in current location. I've resorted to using an old version which I don't update.


The widget has gone downhill recently:- If the widget refreshes when there's no internet connection it displays a message similar to 'unable to retrieve forecast'. Just display the last fetched data with a last updated time stamp like it used to be? When you cycle through the saved locations on the widget you're forced to cycle through the 'current location' even if you're denied the app access to your location. Just don't include it in the list like it used to be? OnePlus 3T (OxygenOS 9.0.5)


This app used to be really good, however the June and July update have ruined this app. Asks for location every time you use the app which is frustrating if you don't use or want to use location services. Side scrolling now does not stop on each hour. A Mess. 1/10/19 This app just doesn't get any better, widgets now don't work and won't display the forecast, scrolling is still too quick when looking hour by hour. Just take the app back to the May version please!


What is going on ? Used to just work, but since some recent update/improvement a couple of months ago it continually nags for location and constantly crashes. Same on all my devices so you can't blame it on a single device! I have hoped a fix would emerge with all the other comments, but it looks like no one is listening, guess I'll have to uninstall and try a different app. Please don't try and 'improve' iplayer.


Recent update(s) have ruined this app. Can't do anything without locking up, just displaying 'locating' and retrieving data. What's happened to the ability to cache data and just display the most recent update? I used to love this and had the applet on my home page, but the problems are making me look elsewhere for an alternative.


Previiusly thus app was excellent. Now, using Android, it often starts to load but then messages : Unfortunately BBC Weather has stopped working:. To get it back involves uninstalling and then re-installing. If you are not already working on this sutuation, please start! App content was and is excelent, but it has become a real struggle to get to use it. Geoff


Still waiting for the bugs introduced in the last update, over a month ago, to be removed. 'Your forecast is not available' messages with no refresh button, jumping locations when opening the app by tapping the widget, constant location requests with no option to turn them off. These bugs really need fixing. Please!


Last update sucks. Blue screen on the widget all the time if you are not connected, sometimes even if you are and can't update properly. Guys, you know we are interested to see the forecast even if it is slightly outdated when you are not connected. It's certainly better to view an older forecast than none! Also, now very slow to update different cities, when previously every city forecast was updated instantly.Finally, can you stop asking every single time about using Google's location service?


Used to be great, then the June 2019 update caused it to keep requesting location. Thought I'd give the developers time to fix it. Just downloaded the latest update (Aug?), and location works but app keeps crashing. You need to start replying to individuals who have taken the time to comment and stop saying you're listening. Quite clearly, you're not.


Until recently this was a great app. Now it is as unreliable as hell. It frequently fails to load any of my saved locations without long waits which often end in a total drop out to a blank, blue, screen or for the app to close down. This happens even when I am sitting next to the wi-fi hub. When it works it is good, the stress has to be put on the word WHEN. I am not alone in this, my wife and both my daughters have the same issues.


Can't say I'm hugely impressed with BBC Weather. I do get it that wind and temperature are not too hard to predict, but rain is more difficult. But BBC rain forecasts are farcical. They are rarely accurate; so much so that recently, I looked out of my window to see the rain, which was forecast to be 100% certain ay 18:00 hrs. It was 18:00 hours. Nothing, nil precipitation. By 18.05, the 'forecast' had dropped to 5%. So, forecasting seems to consist of sticking a hand out of the window….


The forecast provided is informative but fails to place the location selected in the wider context of developing weather patterns. The ability to toggle to the larger weather map, lapsed over time would be more imformative. If it does exist please make it more obviouse on the location screen.


Since it was recently updated, it's slow and clunky. It takes 30 secs to load. Far slower than before. It keeps trying to get my location. That's not it's business. And the "last used" time has gone. That was useful for monitoring elapsed time. When an app is updated, it's supposed to improve. This is worse. Considering using another app after 10 years with this one...


This widget used to be great, but in the last few weeks it's just not loading the information. I get a message saying, "Your forecast is not available, please try again". Sometimes it loads after tapping and waiting, but after a while it reverts to the error message. Please devs, please fix it!!


Constantly crashes since the last update. Might be because I refuse to keep my battery draining tracking system on, otherwise known as "Location". But MY phone settings should be under my control NOT an Apps control! A weather app should be able to work without having to track my location all of the time. I'm perfectly able to input a different location myself if I happen to be in a different area. Tracking should not be a necessity ! Either that, or this version of app just doesn't work.


Since new update, app has become very slow. The weather dispalayed in the widget always disappears, and has to be refreshed. Also, annoyingly, the app constantly asks you to turn on location, it does not save your answer, this makes the app slow in having to always check where you are, and re-load your selected locations.


App has become unstable requiring WiFi or mobile access when opening. Became completely unusable on version 4.0.0, then noticed newer version, uninstalled and reloaded. Seems to at least open. Will give this one a go. Still crashes, blue screen or location searching the stops working...good app gone bad. The "Fixed App" is nowhere near being fixed.


As per other reviews constantly nags to turn on GPS, totally ignoring the fact that we tap on 'no thanks'. Also takes a while to load, and lost the ability to delete saved locations. Obviously they aren't listening to all these comments. Update; despite your recent update where you state that you've listened to recent comments and made improvements, you haven't! The app still (mis)behaves in the same manner as it did pre update! What a shambles.


This has always been my go to app for the weather, no longer I'm afraid! Since the last release it has been pretty much unusable, continually gives a blue screen with no weather information available. I note many other reviewers have said the same and there has been no response nor any attempt to correct the problem. Very, very poor!!


Easy enough to follow and understand, but my fella and me both had our weather app open a couple of weeks ago and they were completely different, how can that be and which one's right? So am a bit on the fence, isn't always accurate to the actual weather either. Probably the same as the TV forecast.


As reliable as a weather forecasting service can be, so decent. What I'm missing the most is the barometric pressure information. It might be hidden somewhere in the PC desktop version of the app, but the phone app just doesn't have that. Raised that some time ago already, the reply was very defensive but lacked substance. Something in the style of 'we take your concerns very seriously' blah blah, the stock reply of all organisations to cover up inaction, contempt or ineptitude.


I used to love this app & would have highly recommended it. However, since I've started keeping my device's location turned off, I've found that the app nags me to switch the location on, "for a better experience". It does this not just once, but EVERY SINGLE TIME I open the app (which is quite often!) This is driving me mad. I have a right to keep my location private, thank you, without having every app installed on my phone trying to track me & harvest data. KINDLY TAKE "NO" FOR AN ANSWER 😡


What have you done? Prior to the early August update (which was forced on me as I only update when I need to - if its not broken etc). Now, the app cannot find my local forecast, is buggy, jumping between my saved locations is now on a carousel so loads the weather for each saved location that is touched on the way, which causes brief pauses, only downloads the weather for each saved location on demand resulting in more frustrating pauses. Please fix these problems.


**update 12/09/19 I still can't remove old favs. Swipe to the right isn't working, been like this for months!! - please fix :-(.** for the last month or so I now can't remove previous searched locations, and is taking longer to get my current location. the non removal of search locations is really annoying, as I'm at the max allowed, and I've just returned from holiday and don't need these locations any more. I've tried uninstalling the app and reinstalling, but no joy.


I have had this app for years on different phones, but after a recent update it stopped letting me put in post codes for places. It always used to and I found it more accurate than just putting in a general place. It is a shame because it was a reliable, useful and very helpful app. Now it gives the general weather forecast for an area, but as you know it can be completely different a mile down the road


I'm so disappointed with this app. It used to be my first choice of weather apps, but since the summer updates it's so flaky, I've stopped using it. One in three attempts to open it present me with a blank blue page with no options to do anything at all. I have to kill it in my task manager and start again. The rest of the time it takes several minutes to figure out where I am, before I can use it.


This app worked really well for a couple of years, then just stopped working. I uninstalled then reinstalled and it's working perfectly again. Although the default location won't change from the location I was in when I reinstalled it, which is not home or near home. Forecast is usually fairly accurate.


Suddenly very bad. Just says "Locating...." when I open it and takes ages to show anything. Have resorted to using the built in weather app instead Previously the app was great so if you can fix it BBC I'll come back and give you four stars. And I'll give you five stars if you make the Home Screen widget display the CURRENT TEMPERATURE instead of the lowest and highest of the day - why do I need to know that? That info is better off in the main app, I want the widget to show me the temperature that it is NOW, not what it was at 5am or will be at midnight!!! :-)


For those like me annoyed with "switch on location" nag messages: 1) Close the app. 2) Use your system app manager to disable location permission for the app. 3) Start the app and check "never ask again", then click "no". The "never" box doesn't appear if location permission is on, which it usually is when you install the app.


This was a good app, until two successive updates completely ruined it. It now spends ages with a silly little circle going round and round saying 'locating', and I have to force stop it and then restart it before it works out where it is. Very disappointed, and uninstalling to make room for something else.


Four years ago I placed a rather negative review which I have now deleted as this app has improved dramatically. It's easy to read, navigate and for the majority of the time, accurate ( forecasts are never going to be totally accurate ) Other apps I've tried are overly detailed and not user friendly. Well done for sorting out this "weather at a glance" application.


Detail is good, once you have stumbled across the way to find what you want, but the display is nowhere near as clear as the web version; the icons for each day ahead are small and merge into the background.


was working fine until the recent update. Now it just freezes when opened and will not locate. Have to uninstall and reinstall to get it working until it freezes again. How can this update have ever been tested before release as it seems it's a common problem. Latest 15 Aug update has solved the location problem.


It has recently lost a lot of good features to take this from being a brilliant app to one i now consider not worthy of taking up space on my phone!!! For example, it wants to know my location which is no use when i often want to check the weather in a place i am going to travel to. It no longer caches data from the last time it had data access - if no connectivity within the last few hours all cached data is gone and no forecast is shown. I cannot now remove a location i have searched for.


Loved this app as it was nice and basic, easy to read. Not sure what has happened of late but I now just seem to get a blue screen or different bugs that wont let me look ahead. Tried to uninstall a few weeks ago which did the trick for a few weeks but now it seems to be even worse!


Had to uninstall to save my battery and sanity. Recently it's been nagging me about my location but I don't always like to have my location switched on. If location is on, it spends several seconds spinning. I often want the weather where I'm going rather than where I currently am, so it's not helpful.


Generally good but over last few months is slow to update and sometimes needs a restart (even on wifi) to get updated weather data. When it DOES work it provides good info and forecasts but the app is unstable and on occasion I have to use other weather apps.


Worked for years, no problems. Then it started not loading properly. Non responsive, lovely blue sky screen but no weather prodictions. uninsulated completely and reinstalled it a few times. I have no other apps with issue's including weather related ones.


Used to be the best. Since a recent update (July 2019) the widget is useless as it fails to find location unless you open app. Just blue screen with a 'not working' massage. Can't delete favourite locations any more. Forecasts less accurate now. August release notes say they've been listening and fixed issues, but clearly both statements are untrue.


Doesn't work properly any more. Insists on asking to turn on location every time you start it. Also starts with area at top of favourites list instead of place last used which makes the list a bit pointless. Need to find some proper developers not a bunch of schoolkids. Also, why are the forecasts on the app, the local regional news and the national news all different? Never much use since the BBC dumped the Met Office.


Weather reports not usually that accurate. App recently (since July 19) fails to detect current location, despite Android location being On. Also, saved locations sometimes do not show. These faults happens on three different makes/models of Android phone in our house. That they have persisted for so long suggests a serious lack of maintenance by the developers.


Not working properly. When I click on widget to get detailed info, I just get app background and no information at all. Was working fine. I assume update has a bug. Tried forcing stop and rebooting phone but still the same. I'll try re-installing app but doubt if that will make a difference.


Takes up far too much storage space: download size stated as nearly 57Mb, but actually used almost 77Mb! AND...there's no Widget. PLUS!...It's so unreliable and contradictory: I just checked the App forecast for next 7 days, and it shows showers/rain EVERY day - but just a short while ago, the BBC local forecast on TV shows rain on just TWO days! How can BBC say: get "accurate, up-to-date" forecasts!!?? Totally USELESS! Uninstalled.


Recent version (as of 10/08) continually asks for GPS use. I do not want to use that but won't except my answer of no thanks like previous version. Please can this be resolved. Thank you. Update 24/09/19. Third update since the constant question about location. Still not resolved, still doesn't open at current location despite leaving app on current location page. Functionality getting slower (lagging when scrolling through the days forecast). App is poor whilst the Met Office is improving.


It's a good app and I would recommend it, however there is no option to delete your favorite places. My son plays rugby and I check the weather before we go but then that place stays and when you've got so many, you can't look for anywhere else. And you can't get rid of the places you've already got.


Usually a great app that I rely on every day. But, in the past few weeks, the GPS location is broken. The widget now normally says "Your local forecast is not available", until I go into the app, and wait ages whilst it locates where I am. HINT: I'm not that far from where I was last time it refreshed.


Helpful. Still a little confused by the redesign. According to the BBC radio programme, More or Less, the rain forecast is for the hour preceding. Don't think there's any information confirming that on the app.


was really good until last update, now buffers for ages before giving data, never used to be so slow, you can't even see previous information all you get is a blue screen till it gathers what it needs, I've sent feed back through the app and on here, no one has contacted they obviously don't care and customer service is non existent,another star lost as the widget now doesn't work, UPDATE..11/9/19 STILL DOESNT WORK STILL BUFFERS WHILE LOOKING FOR LOCATION, AND WIDGET STILL DOESNT WORK PROPERLY


13.8.19 latest update seems to have caused problems. app is slow to load and sometimes crashes, and widget won't display any info. 20.9.19 disappointed that this app has still not been fixed. 13.10.19 downgraded to 1 star because the issues with this app have still not been fixed.


What has happened to this app? Used to be great, now the widget always shows an error (like internet connection not available when it is). Very rarely does the widget actually display the weather now! Note when I get the internet not available error on the widget, going into the main app works & updates the widget. Please fix! Latest update still has same issue...


Been using it happily for years. Now it isn't really useable without location turned on. Shocker - I know where I live and don't need a constant battery drain to work it out for me whenever I want to check the weather.


This app is useless. You look to see what the weather is like and if it says no rain you go outside. By the time you reach the back door it's pouring with rain. You then look at your app again and it has changed to rain! Waste of time using it.


You clearly haven't listened. Like most recent reviews, I have reached my limit of places and it wont let me delete any to add new. I reinstalled the App but it remembered the place names. Swiping an issue as others have said. Very poor. And the September update hasn't fixed the issue


Used to be good but a recent update has left the app trying to update, and is hanging. I keep have to launch the app to update it manually. This is after the phone's been asleep. Possible poor coding issues??? I will give a week or so for this to be fixed before changing as I like this app when it was working it got a 4 star.


As with other users, this was my 'go to' weather app, but now it seems that it has to be permanently connected to a network otherwise it won't show any weather info at all. Even if it updated a few minutes before. It needs to go back to the last version soon!!


The weather forecast for the week on country file seems to be more accurate than the forecast on this app. Surely if they both come from the same source (BBC) should they not be the same? Having said that, they are both fairly accurate, so I am pleased to have this app, and I can whinge now and again! Many thanks!


Just crashes continually. Had years of good use but probably after last update it crashes about 3 or 4 times each time I open it. I'm going to use a different app for now but will check back to see if fixed as I do like it otherwise.


I thought that you were supposed to have fixed the problems with this version 4.0.2 23rd August. I have my location switched on & when I open the app, it goes to my 1st choice favourite location, instead of my actual location, (THESE BTW ARE 300 MILES APART) the only way I can solve it, is to list my home location as my 1st favourite location putting it at the top of the list. OBVIOUSLY NO ONE TAKES ANY NOTICE OF THE REVIEWS LEFT REGARDING THIS ISSUE, IF I COULD GIVE A MINUS SCORE, I WOULD DO SO


A good app. A couple of improvements: 1: Store the fact that i don't want to enable my location setting and stop showing me the nag reminder. 2: Let me see the past 12/24 hour weather - when I wake up in the morning it's useful to know if it rained overnight. It affects where I walk the dog to avoid her getting muddy. :-)


As accurate as possible I think. Good choice of colours scheme, enabling easy comprehension of details. One of three different apps that I use. All excellent in their own way.


Since the last release, the application does not display weather data. Immediately after it starts, it gets stuck on an empty screen showing the name of the application shows but not the weather information. However, the widget still works as expected.


As a farmer I like to know the 5 day forecast. I found that this app changes its forecast far too often especially short term and is unreliable for rainfall forecasts as it tends to overestimate it. Hence I tend to use the met office app more often. Hence


the app used to ve quite accurate but recently it's been a long way out. saying it will be dry but rained and other times saying it will rain but it stayed dry. As an update. . Now in September it is still a long way out with the forecast. Just can't be relied on


I have found this really for when I have been travelling. At least I know what to pack! Knowing what the temperature will be throughout the day helps sort out what clothes to wear - there's a big difference between a skimpy T-shirt and a jumper or sou'ester!!


It's a good basic site that would be greatly enhanced by a radar feature as per Accuweather. When l compare the 2 sites, the BBC is pretty blunt only dealing in hour by hour information whereas Accuweather has much better minute by minute information.


The app does not allow me to delete any locations so now I cannot add any locations I require. When will this be fixed. I am using a Samsung S7. I have uninstalled and reinstalled but my previous locations are automatically put back.


Keeps losing my location and my favourites. This is since your recent update. It was fine till then. I have reinstalled it 4 times but still the same problem. Doing this again today on October 11th!


4.5 stars! I use the app quite frequently to keep a check on the weather at different destinations at home in the UK and around the world. Although not always 100% accurate, it gives a really good idea what to expect today and predictions for the near future. Easy to use and a great addition to my 'go to' apps!


This is an excellent app I love it never any problems with it and nearly always right but you can never tell how the weather is going to behave but it is always nice to have a heads up on what the weather will be carry on the great work everyone XX 🥰


I like the local specificity of the forecast, and the hourly updates. I personally would like to see the 5-day foreign forecasts on this app, similar to those on tv text.


Always seems overly cautious, especially on rain prediction. But, easy to use, easy to navigate. Used very regularly, but forecast always taken with a pinch of salt.
