Like this app. A lot! Just needs more timely updates. And I would like to be able to see what the weather is like in Anchorage, Alaska. It does not show anything at any time I check. Reporting timely temperatures was way off for a time. Not good.

The AccuWeather is not very accurate. For example, this morning the high showed as 101. Early this afternoon the high changed to 102 (nothing wrong with an updated value). Then this evening, the high was showing as 95 and the current temperature reported 99. Huh?!?! Todays high was 95 yet the current temperature is 99. It seems that AccuWeather is NOT so accurate.
