    I love having access to the weather in such a great application. The problem is that is is very clunky and laggy. Would you please update the app to the same engine as the rural metservice application? It runs much more smoothly! Thanks developers!

    Not a patch on the iOS app. Works OK on a phone if a bit clunky. Complete rubbish on a tablet. I switched to the yahoo app for my nexus 7

    Navigation and usability could be improved. App needs to be simpler and more intuitive to use.

    I'm having trouble with the auto location being accurate in the widget. When I click through to the app in auto locate it takes me to the last city I had it set for when not using auto locate.

    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.
