The app is one that is very accurate regarding forecasts as well as weather details that you might not be able to see on television or online. When you enter your location, you can get updated forecasts and weather conditions to the minute, making it easier to plan your day or your week. You can view a 24-hour forecast as well as one for seven days. The weather maps that you can see are highly detailed with beautiful colors that depict temperature changes as well as precipitation types. There is only a two-week free trial, but it's worth the little amount of money to upgrade once the trial is over because of the numerous details that are featured. A beneficial feature of the app is that you can see almost instant details about when it will rain or when the sun will shine. These simple details are what make the app rewarding because you can plan events outside or know what to wear for the day. There are options to customize the alerts that you receive so that you always know about severe weather in your area or if there is another kind of weather event that you need to know about. When an alert is received, you don't have to open the app to view the details as the information is seen on your home screen. Daily reports can be sent to your phone as well as a summary of the weather for the past days.
