  1. All Weather apps are only good for wind and temp. I'm a meteorologist and know all these apps are set on MOS statistical data. No human is forecasting every city. Im developing the first aspen weather app run by Two human meteorologists that live in aspen. Thats worth the money!

  2. Has anyone else experienced their Dark Sky app displaying "next hour forecast temporarily unavailable (radar station down)"?

    Mine displays this probably 95% of the time. Can't find any info or help online and the developers seem unresponsive. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling, GPS location is pretty accurate, temps seem accurate but the main selling point of the app itself has been crap.

    Not sure if this is a bug with the app itself, or something to do with my location. I'm in Hawaii (Big Island). Right now it's a useless $4 app. 

  3. I have been using Yahoo Weather on my iPhone for quite a while now and I love it. I just wish it had severe weather notifications, given that I live in Florida where severe weather tends to come out of nowhere.

  4. I find, in Australia, most of these US based apps are just plain WRONG. They simply provide inaccurate information not derived from our BOM, making them quite pointless.

  5. Yahoo Weather for Android is the best looking and most useful app I've ever used. The Wigdet is beautiful and the option to not use background photo is awesome. Hands down the best for me

  6. I don't like that this series does apps. Maybe for a different program, but it's easier to take a chance on a 3.99 app then a 200 dollar blue tooth speaker. I like how this series deals with items that are on the price site, things I can't easier splurge on and I really take these recommendations to heart. Bought myself a ue boom and it's great. Either way it's a good series, keep it up. 

  7. Dear Verge-Video-Editors, i know this frame aspect ratio screams hipster and cool, but how about making your videos based on and optimized for the damn players and screens your audience uses? 1/3 of the video is black bars.
