    Better widgets and offerings out there. Transparent radar on map make impossible to see snow fall densities.

    It is understood that the media cant live without advertisements however this being a public service type app the ads should be able to be turned off. Noticed that the app also is continually polling the device for its location thus eating up your battery faster. One additional down fall is the portrait landscape switching isnt fluid losing the forecast

    Excellent weather information but there are too many duplicate weather alerts. I do not need the same alert repeated every hour or even less. Otherwise I would have given 5 stars.

    This is a great app, the radar is awesome and I like being able to move the map to view larger areas. Do not like that the "acknowledge alert" button doesn't stop the constant alerts.
