Bring back lock screen weather.

The previous version of the app was better. It would show a custom lock screen image that matched the weather outside. It also showed temp and current conditions at the top of the lock screen image allowing for detailed info from other apps (calendar) at the bottom of the screen.

Disappointed with Windows 10 version

Like many others have stated, this new version is a downgrade from the WP8 version of the app. The UI gave up function for form (not saying the old version was ugly, but a dedicated video section seems more of a revenue stream than actual functionality). Furthermore, the lack of a detailed lock screen weather overlay was the last nail in the coffin for me. In the old version, you got all the weather information you needed at a glance. Now with this version, it's too discreet (read blends in too much and too small) and makes the weather difficult to pick out. Now this can be a windows 10 "feature" in which case, it didn't do itself any favors. On the plus side, you can now pay to remove the ads. I wouldn't since I don't plan to use this app, but had that been available for WP8, I would have.

Exiting video closes the app

So the video plays. I hit back arrow to go back to the main page. Instead the app quits. Load the app again and It's stuck on video page. This is a problem on windows 10 mobile. You have to handle the back arrow differently.

I pretty much like how this app function. It sid take me a while to decide to pin it to my front page but now it is and I find myself using it a bit more than the weather channel app. I find accuweather fairly easy to navigate, or I should say smooth. Downgraded 1 star only because I could be better verses with it's features.

Thought it was good until a few days ago when forecast was hugely different than reality and different than another app which was far more accurate.

Love the app but the live tile isn't working. If it were I'd give this app 5 stars.

Heavy downgrade

The old version was much better in providing information in a efficient way, live tile is now close to useless and the missing lock screen feature was a bad decision. The new version will not survive for long on my phone but thanks for a few years of a formally showcase app.

Great if you don't want an accurate forcast

Works ok for the current conditions but the forecasting is very inaccurate especially when you there is a major weather system coming in. It typically always underestimates the incoming systems.
