Needs smarter organization and ad-free option

I like accuweather and generally have found it to be more accurate than other services. The app in its current form is ok, could certainly be improved and more useful at a glance information (I have found MS weather app to be perfectly fine for day to day use). The new interface is a step up from its first iteration on the microsoft app store, but still not up to par with the app on the iphone or android.

Great Update

Great update. However, I miss the calendar view in the past releases where I could plan 10+ days in advance

Was Once Upon a Time a Beautiful and Informative App

Below is my old review from the layout that has been the app for years now. They have just (1/8/2016) completely changed the layout and it is unusable. The layout is terrible, information that used to be available (and important features to me) is gone and after they went through all the trouble of such an overhaul they didn't even add more features to the maps, which have had the least common denominator feature set across all weather apps with maps. If this does not revert or get significantly better quickly I will not be using it. The Weather Channel's app is superior to this app now. ================================ prior review from 12/2/13: The AccuWeather app is very easy on the eyes, and has a lot of information not available in other platforms. Unfortunately, I do tend to have to kill it to get it to update. If that changes, I'll update this.

Please show the date of the day in daily view.

For Win10 version would be good if you add the date to the day of the week in daily forecast view. Otherwise it's confusing which Wednssay or Friday is being looked at the moment.

Review of AccuWeather

Easy to look at and isn't overly burdened with any advertisements.

When you learn all that is available, radar, locations, long range, etc., this app is fantastic!! I use it all the time for daily and long range plans. On Windows 8.1 just right click and all the options come up!!

WHY ?!@!!??!?!!@!!!!!

Windows 10 version. This app (Windows 8.1 version) was my favorite app of all weather apps. All the info I wanted was RIGHT there - first glance! Didn't have to scroll to see what I immediately wanted. Loved, Loved, Loved it! THEN......you went and totally REFORMATTED the whole thing!!!! I TOTALLY hate the entire app at this point. I hate the layout, the views, everything! The prior version was great and very easy to read/view. NOW - NOW.....I spent more time LOOKING for exactly what I wanted AND it was HARD TO READ (all this white stuff and what-not)!! This app just so frustrates me and I'm going to uninstall the thing. This was my most used app until it was all changed! Please PUT IT BACK THE WAY IT WAS.....OR.....at least have the option for users to choose which version want to use or choose layouts and such. Hoping you will put things back !!!

Best & most accurate forecast - useless app

Really sad and frustrating that the app for Windows 10 does not work 90% of the time: It just sits there for a couple of seconds then vanishes (closes itself down). The live tile is working but keeps changing settings between Metric/Imperial. So, here I am with the best weather forecast service whose application refuses to let me use it.
