The maps give weather details for five days.

To Anso for helping me find a quick fix for version 1.1.1.
Great free app

Have been using this since before the upgrade, only to have the same issues as everyone else with the times. I did not realise just how much I used it until then. Tried the work around (toggling 24 hour mode) and great! Back to normal. I travel around the country alot and it is great to see the radar pictures. So much better than the native app. Keep looking at the permanent fix as you don't deserve the low ratings now there is a work around. By the way you might want to update your website as that is where most people woulg go for problems.

New swipe gesture works perfectly! & tap the map to return to current time. Thanks . Much faster and more responsive now too. It's replaced apple's weather app on my home screen. Great Job!!
Looks good, but crashes a bit so needs an update fix. Also needs swipe gestures to flick through time and a Today/Current button to get back to current time. Could be a great app ...!!
EDIT: You can get back to the current time by tapping the day at the top...
Excellent, simple & free

A fabulous and simple interface, with clear maps showing the weather, really, what more do you need? Easy to understand, and nicely split between rain, cloud cover, temperature etc.One thing I'd like to see in future versions would be an ability to view/zoom the map into UK regions. Perhaps Scotland, Ireland, England and Wales like the way your local news would do.An excellent app, even better that it's free, if you're obsessed with the weather (like most folk in the UK) you'll love this.

Opened up the app now (a day later) and appears to work. Haven't done anything different. Appears to show what the uk weather will be up to every 6 hours, or in 6 hourly blocks. 00:00 06:00 12:00 18:00. And fetches next 4 days worth of weather prediction.
For free, I think it's excellent. If I was to be wishful, it would be nice to get 3 hourly depictions, and maybe some way to zoom, so as not to have to squint in the area where you think you probably live!
Reading other entries would appear app has some time problems. I have re-installed the app and it now shows weather for every 3 hours! Is great.. Just don't get why it wasn't doing that to start with. Just need zoom now and then would be ultimate uk weather app!!

I have tried several different weather apps and this is the best yet. It's easy to use and understand. It is also the most accurate tested against the official met office forecasts.
The iPhones own yahoo powered weather app was quite inaccurate and only gives you an overall picture.. So if it says sunny, yes it might be but it won't tell you about that afternoon downpour.
Only reason not 5 stars is because it can't give you local forecasts which could be useful.
Keeping it simple

5 stars for the keep it simple approach. Exactly what you need for instant weather info. Amazed it's free!
Simple, great looking, great app
By: ProjectGaz - 25-Aug-2009
Not much more to say really, just realty good at what it does! Can't ask for more than that!
This latest version is great
By: Dio99 - 24-Aug-2009
they have fixed the bugs of before and it now work fine again. Keep up the good work.
By: Kingy271 - 22-Aug-2009
This app was just wot I was looking for re the uk weather. The maps allow you to decide on the chance of rain etc - great
Great little free app!
By: MxNRG - 21-Aug-2009
Really useful little app, the last fixes to the 24 hour clock make it much easier to understand and progress bar at launch. One of the most handy free apps on the iPhone.
By: azzyp - 20-Aug-2009
Great lil app now timing is sorted, could do with a zoom and maybe international forecast?
Keep up the good work
By: ferraii - 16-Aug-2009
A really good app. Doesn't try to do too much and does what it does very well. The most used app on my phone. And it's free!
Best weather app
By: jakebmth - 15-Aug-2009
This is a great app it is easy to use and understand
I find this the most accurate app and best of all its free
and thanks to the developer for listening to people and fixing the time bug
Quality - Bug Fixed!!!
By: Mckeownmadness - 14-Aug-2009
Thank you very much for fixing the time bug, I agree with the others maybe if the times could be of shorter intervals it would improve the app even more! But I can't think of any other possible improvements it's immense
Does the job nicely

Best iPhone weather app to date
By: Boneface - 13-Aug-2009
This has got to be one of the best functional apps out there!!!! Love it!!! Cheers!!!
Works fine, excellent update!
By: G Shizzle - 13-Aug-2009
This app works brilliantly, and is simple and effective to use. Works perfectly, again!
By: owieH - 13-Aug-2009
It's really amazing but there is still room for improvement! I hope in the future the user can set the timeframe... Like now, the maps are every 6 hours or something?
Best free weather app on iPhone!
By: Aldredb - 04-Aug-2009
After turning the 24hr clock off then ON in the main settings for the phone, the clock on this app works fine. Great App, best and most accurate free weather app I've found.
