    Default BeWeather Alternative

    Suggestions for a BeWeather alternative?

    Long time (since Blackberry days) of BeWeather, but have pretty much given up on it lately. Updates sometimes, when it feels like it and intermittent lock screen updates. Have deleted and re-installed on numerous occasions, but getting tired of that work around.

    Looking for another reliable weather app with lock screen weather and temperature on the badge, similar to BeWeather. Suggestions??

    TIA

    I've been using Storm for quite awhile. It's been good for me.

    Apologies. I just realized that my suggestion doesn't supply the things you requested. Still a good app though.

    Yup for me too. But it seems to keep picking the days it wants to work?? Frustrating to say the least!

    Yeah, at least once a month. Sometimes it's weather underground going down.

    Default BeWeather Alternative

    Just curious, but are lock screen weather notifications as important to everybody using iOS 10, since a weather widget is available from the lock screen by swiping left?

    Yeah. When I wake at 5 am I like to raise to wake and see the weather without doing any other action. Before iOS 10, you could have done the same by pulling down the notification center on the lock screen.

    Im willing to bet that the issues with BeWeather come more from Weather Underground's side of things than BeWeather. I used to notice a lot of the same issues while using Wundergrounds app as BeWeather.

    Correct it's the source for data that sometimes has issues. and even that w/ Weather underground it also relies on personal weather stations all over to get it's data
