    Your'e quite right, I was so chuffed with the isobars, I didn't realise, I quit them thinking I had a bad data connection.

    Absolute garbage it is.

    Nice announcement saying how it had been updated based on feedback from cutomers.

    Who were those people?
    I may be wrong, but I'm not confused.

    Bit of a curates egg this release.

    Isobars - tick
    Rain 'radar' - tick
    Period forecasts for each day - tick
    Wind speed map - cross
    Temp map - cross

    All in all I think it is better than the old one but needs further work to complete the job.

    There are dozens of other weather apps for iPhone which will give you everything and anything you want. I like Weather4d.

    This might be unfair, but I've never had much confidence in the inshore forecast. Having the shipping forecast in its own tab would be GREAT though!

    I deleted it after a few weeks, it kept crashing. Plus it only does the UK.
