    Good app for the price

    I also thought it was not loading up after I entered my town. But discovered you have to then click on your towns name and it will then open.

    Very good app - recommend you install it

    I installed it and got wrong location by not putting in zip code. Best results that way. Also i deleted a location by clicking on the three dots on lower right side, took me to locations and others. Clicked on locations, and when cities came up. Selected city i wanted to delete and held finger on it for a moment. Options came up to delete, move to top or make home location, etc. Hope this helps. Others said they worked it out but did not share.

    Great app for the price.

    I got this app and have had no problems setting it up for my location. In the initial setup when it wanted a location I just typed in my zip code and that was that. I do wish you could "pinch" the screen to zoom in/out. Also, the colors of precip could be darker. Small areas of precip can be hard to spot.

    Highly Recommended - Check it Out Yourself!

    Extremely simple - I entered City, State & Zip - immediately loaded - black screen with name of city, state & zip - I tapped on it - Loaded!!! Gave me temp, all other information and High Wind Warnings with detail, has week ahead and can add locations in addition to favorites. Easy - great tool! Thanks again, Nook - still loving mine..

    Very usefull app

    April 14, 2012. Wichita, KS. We just had a 3/4 mile wide tornado go through the south side of our city. Using the app, I was able to track the movement of the storm relative to my location in concert with Google maps which is part of the app. Very comforting to myself and my family.

    This app works great, bought it today, and had the location problem figured out in about 20 mins. This is a great app. If you are smart enough to buy a Nook, then be smart enough to ask for help from developer and not write bad reviews. Glad I read them then went for it any way.!

    Great app

    I have had this app for a few days now and I really like it. I love the little temp it puts in the bottom corner. I also like the 14 day forecast. It's very useful for planning.

    I agree with those who point out that this was a great weather app until the upgrade weeks ago. The screens are now boring, the print difficult to read and it is not easy to navigate. Basically the upgrade took a 5 star app and transformed it into a 1 star app. Agree with those who are begging for a new upgrade to restore the app to its former layout and functionality.

    Updates ruined it.

    Hate the new screens. Font too small, icons too small, design looks like a newspaper page from the 70s. Way too mush info crowded into first screen. I loved the older version with colored print on a black background. So disappointed.

    Not so good anymore !!!

    Was a "Five Star" but not anymore. Substantial graphic change made it bland looking and confusing.

    Was a great weather proogram

    This was a great weather program. You could tell what was happenning with the weather with just a glance. But with it's current update, you got to spent a couple of minute's figuring out graphs and very small little picture's. GO BACK TO THE OLD STYLE OF INFORMATION?
