Doesn’t Work on iPad or Android 1/5
This app is absolutely worthless. It doesn’t work on my iPad or my Android phone. It won’t allow me to put in a starting point & ending point of my choosing but wants to force me to use my current location for both. Hello! I’m not leaving and coming to the same place in the same trip. Example. I’m at a hotel. So I let it choose “current destination” for the starting point. For the ending point it gives me the option of “current destination” or to type in where I want to go. I type in where I’m going & it gives me no option to move on from there. I don’t get “done” that I can tap on do that it will start calculating. There isn’t anything I can do to move on from that point. There is only a tutorial as to how to set up an account, but absolutely nothing to show you how to use the app. I think most everyone knows how to set up an account. What we need to know is how to use the app! I’ve deleted the app & reinstalled on both of my devices, but still have the same issue. I’ve had the app for over a year & had the same issue when I installed it. I was hoping they would have improved the app since then.
So far so good 4/5
It appears to be in good working order and the conditions have been recently updated.
Need regular updates 3/5
This app is helpful if there have been no changes in the weather all day, but when conditions are changing it's no help at all to know conditions at 7 a.m.
