“Weather Live” is a crappy weather app

As a motorcyclist, I’m always very concerned about the weather. How, where, when, and if I ride is weather dependent. What I wear is weather dependent. Having an accurate forecast is crucial to my enjoyment and safety when I ride. So I check out every weather app I can lay my hands on.

On Thursday, I installed an iOS app called Weather Live. I particularly liked this feature:

Weather widget for the Notification Center. Check current temperature, get an accurate forecast for the coming hours.

This time of year in this part of the world, the weather can change quickly and drastically. I signed up for their free trial. Yesterday, I got this notification:

Wait…what? “heavy snow”? What the fuck? It’s *mid-April*. There’s *zero* chance of “heavy snow” in this part of the world in April. Even by their own forecast (low of 5 Celsius (41F) and a high of 8C (46F)), there’s zero chance of snow.

Today, I got this one:

It’s cloudy and raining here. I’ve deleted this POS app and recommend no one else waste $3 on it.
