    Chicago's weather can be dynamic and this application is not. The weather location needs to be implemented. Weather downtown can be vastly different then in the suburbs lands of Chicago, this app will say it's 85 out when it's really 60 in downtown Chicago because of the lake.

    I have had this app for two years. Its never right. I don't like seeing a thunder cloud icon when there is only a 20% chance of it happening.

    I mean really, Tom Skilling is the only weather professional that I trust because of how accurate he is. But this app is wrong 70 percent of the time. So I'm sorry but accu-weather is more accurate I'm uninstalling. Only good thing is the map portion.

    The app can't find my location anymore. It just sits on Chicago. Then it constantly searchers for my location
