The recent update (version 6) is great. The main screen has a clean layout and includes a lot of useful information, so you don’t have to swipe around as much. Also, the radar images load a lot faster than the old app.
Old complaints have been dealt with!
Notifications are in English now! Excellent app! Way better than the iPhone weather app
App is Fine But Notification Problems
Lots of good information in the app. However, notifications are a bit of a problem. While the app has been set to English, the notifications only come in Chinese. This is not helpful for those users who have selected English as their profile.
Worst weather app I’ve ever used
Whoever designed this crap should be fired immediately. Such a crappy app for one of the most amazing city in the world. The app freeze and crash very often. UI design is not user friendly, confusing to use.
The music stops when launch this app
every time launch this app the music i listen stops. It should be fixed!
Update for IPHONE X!!!
HK weather and others support iPhone X and not you...WHY?????
Data is good. App *painfully* slow and stops audio on launch.
Integration with this company is so useless. Also exposes users to privacy problems. Please take away
The weather alerts are great.
I really like the push alerts on local weather. I live in Hong Kong and occasionally check the observatory website for rain or typhoon information. A couple of nights ago, I came across this app and installed it. Thinking nothing of it, I went to bed. The next morning, I woke up, picked up my phone, and saw an alert for Typhoon 1. I called my husband in the office and he didn't even know because the skies were bright and sunny. Later in the day, the alert for Typhoon 3 came in. So I went to ensure our plants on the balcony were going to be okay. I didn't have to do anything to get the useful information and it allowed me to prepare myself. I haven't figured out how timely the alerts are, but if they come out soon after the Observatory finds out, this would be very useful in times of extreme weather.
If you use the Observatory's website for your weather information, this app will make you more than happy. In the new version, English language can be chosen by clicking on the top right icon for settings. All moving maps load extremely fast on Hong Kong Three 3G. Since I live in the New Territories and work in Island East, being able to be instantly and automatically updated to my current location (including a picture) is a huge plus.
Excellent source of weather information
I use the app several times a day to plan my outdoor activities and am generally satisfied. One suggestion: the daily weather conditions (sunny/cloudy/rainy...) should always be the bigger icons on the main page instead of any cold or hot weathers alerts. They should instead be shown as small dots added to the bigger daily icons.
Today's widget bugs
The Today's Widget often fails to load, quite frustrating. Can you also remove the picture background in today's widget to? Seems redundant. Wonder how it drains resources from phone while it constantly loads upon starting.
Good but Notifications in Chinese only
A good app but please update Notifications to follow the language chosen in settings! I've chosen English and everything else is in English but the Notifications still appear in Chinese rendering them useless for an illiterate Gwailo like me...
To those who don't know how to change the language
Look to the upper-right corner u see a setting option tap it, then select language/語言, then chose...
Have everything u need to know. Even better is the special alert, which saves me a couple times from getting soaked.
