Useless

Looks good but rarely syncs. Temps weather and forecast can be as much as 24 hours old. No (obvious) way to force resync or set sync frequency.

Why so weak on features?

The app for iPhones and Android tablets have more features but they are less powerful than a Windows based tablet with full Windows 8.1 installed. What I like about WeatherBug is being able to save numerous sites, not just 5, and also having the hourly forecast. I was told by WeatherBug before that the hourly forecast is more accurate as it is local to the station and updated hourly versus the 10-day forecast which is regional and updated only twice daily. Can the Windows based app get those features as well? Update 6-15-15= The hourly forecast has been added. Not as clear and not every hour like the iPhone app but a definite improvement. A simple email is all it took. Thank you WeatherBug!

Clean look

Provides current weather based on local weather stations so you get the most accurate weather for your area as possible. Looks clean and doesn't crash like several other weather apps.

Not as good as I-Phone App

I really prefer the I-phone App. I miss the life styles section, the live cams, family and fitness forecasts, and definitely "Spark." There is almost no comparison between the two. I think this is just an average to below average weather App.

Minimal functionality make it substandard

Compared to other weather applications, the minimal functionality make this application useless for me. I need hourly weather with wind speed directions. All you get are the basics from this version.

Not as good as my windows 8.1 phone app

One would think they would be the same but there not. I love the phone version not so much with this one. WeatherBug please use more of the phone app in to this one. PS the station thing not required in the phone app, so why here????

Not Like The Android App

This is about as basic as it gets. I was expecting much more from Weather Bug. The Android App is great, this is a sad attempt.

Needs MANUAL refresh button!

Needs MANUAL refresh button! Currently reports 34 degrees on Monday (last app visit). Is actually Thursday, and 15 degrees (according to the Weather Channel). Otherwise , live tile is up to date, and continues to update often.
