    Great Looking, great working weather app

    • Looks great
    • Ads in the middle of information

    "Great Looking Weather App"


    Weatherzone, is a weather app that lets you choose a location, and gives you detailed weather information. It's pretty good for the most part, but does have a couple of issues with ads.


    Weatherzone looks great - very well designed. It gives detailed weather information for the current day, and more general information for the next seven days. it lets you choose pretty much any location, and retrieves weather data for that location.


    A large problem is ads - the app has small banner ones, which are fine, but it also has larger block ads in the middle of the weather results, which make reading results a bit of a pain. It's also not all that original.

    This used to be a 5 star app, but in the last week (after an update?) it now gives error message and half the functions don't work. If it doesn't get fixed quickly in the next update it will be goodbye Weatherzone.

    Was a pretty good app, after a recent update it won't open anymore, just gets stuck on the loading screen, I'm uninstalling it as it's of no use now!
