    Wish I could get some help with app issues. Same issue for months. Sent few emails. Only one reply that didn't help answer my problem. Never heard from them again.

    This app seems behind as far as the time of their alerts. Could use an update

    This version seems to crash lock screen and is not as great as it used to be

    The weather on the app is never right! Just look outside and don't download this app!
