    Does not have the hourly forecasts like website. On tablet it rotates your screen when u go into menu. Only way to get any hourly break down is to watch video. Disappointed.

    Was great but after updating my phone it always tries to say I'm in Auckland. I go into the app, look at chch weather which is where I am and it always goes back to auckland. Auto locate is shit

    Very confusing UX please follow simple proven design patterns. Feature bloated. Get the basic stuff working first.
