One of the better UK weather apps. Have just upgraded to paid app. I use it for some of the supplementary information not available on the BBC app - such as the maps. The layout, presentation & interface are clear, simple to use, and easily configurable. Information is from the Met Office, and sometimes more up-to-date than Met Office's own app (as happened this morning). It would be great if: ▪it had hourly forecasts for the first 2 days as the Met Office and BBC apps do, and went out beyond 5 days as the BBC app. ▪ the Chart for wind included wind direction.▪The Maps could be played in a loop as well as 1 step at a time.
