Great app Dude. Keep up the great work. Its appreciated. I like your sense of wit too! Btw. The only thing I would add is a UV index rating. and environment ? are like communists where they don't believe in feedback.

Samuel Aleksanian

The weather app I was waiting for Great App. Simple. Good widget. No need to open chrome to check weather anymore. Weather office always has the most accurate weather forecasts, so this app makes it easy to look it up. Thanks for the great work.

Graham Jordan

Radar is great for snowbelt areas I live near the base of the Bruce Peninsula in SW Ontario. We can get weather from 3 directions, so I refer to weather-radar from both Exeter and King City. I'd give it a 5, but stalling of the upload is frustrating.

Scott D

Nearly Perfect The one thing that would make this app the best is if the weather warnings etc. just opened in a new window rather than forcing us to open a browser to view them. One of the other apps does it this way and it's great! Please consider it.

Dr. Aimee Gilbert

Great! A mobile version of my favourite weather site. I particularly like the radar images. Since I live in an area (the lee-side of Lake Simcoe) where weather can be unpredictable, and I am between most typical major weather patterns, the radar is sometimes the only way to see what's coming my way!

Stephane lortie

Love it !! I laughed so hard from people who can easily criticize your app. Ask them if they can do better. Anyways, thank you for doing this. Working outdoors all the time, the need to know is one touch " click" away from instant forecast. Thank you and good luck in your studies.

Eric Montgomery

Double suck. .. We don't want to read your childish remarks. Just weather info. So keep excuses to yourself and act professional PLEASE. DOWNLOADED THIS app 5 min ago and can't believe your remarks. Act like a pro or step aside and let an adult do it.. STOP and stick with the weather...Suck it up..

Lawrence Li

It's OK, poor widget More accurate Canadian weather from government of Canada weather site data. Too busy, cannot turn off alerts and warnings. Home screen shows too much crap - best way to describe it is: pull down your pants to fart. Sometimes missing low's at certain dates. Terrible widget - only shows current temperature (from 4x1 size) - no forecast of the next few dates. This app is good, but needs a lot of enhancements.

Rob Holland

Used to be great This app now requires you to go to multiple pages to get where you want. It used to be great but it is now way too convoluted. Radar no. longer works properly. It has been improved to the point that is no longer functional as an app, it is now just a bad small program.

Christopher New

Accurate and good It's a reliable and great app. What's happened to the current weather icon on the widget?

Northern Kestral

First time lucky . After 50 years without a smartphone I wasn't too crazy about getting one, but living alone in rural Alberta sometimes it was necessary to access information ASAP. I download apps according to usefulness, ease of use, and accuracy; weather reports are high on my need-to-know list. So I'm very happy to have downloaded this accurate, easy to use, well crafted and intelligently designed app. Thank you for a job well done.

arabia d

It's ok. One thing that's agrivating is not being able to swipe away alerts. Once I've read it I don't need to see it any longer in my notifications obviously.

Pepe Rodriguez

Battery I do snow removal and this is the best app I have found to keep up to date. Weather changes with no warning, so this app. One to 3 days in advance weather forecast highly accurate. The radar as "ugly" as it looks it's pretty good and handy. Developer: I had to erase and download it again, as well as to clean my cache.. but I found out that this app was draining my battery. I hope that what I did is enough, is anyone else having the same issue?

Robert White

Fantastic App for Canadian Weather In addition to the basics, this app has some excellent features. My favourite feature is the integration of the weather radar, which I have found to be very useful. The widget is great for quick access to basic info, while detailed info from Environment Canada is one click away. The choice of light or dark colour scheme is one of the nice features that surprised me.

Trevor Robertson

Simple and effective, nearly perfect This is a great presentation of Environment Canada's weather forecasts. It is very easy use and has all the functionality you could need. Only issue I see is I wish you could dismiss weather warnings until the next warning update, as EC usually updates them every 6 hours or so. This option is extra important now that EC is putting out these "Special Weather Statements" that last days at a time and usually are not that important. As such it's a bit annoying to have this non essential warning in notification bar for so long.

Eric Fraser

Very accurate. This is one of the most accurate weather apps out there. The only problem I have is that it has a question mark icon for the current weather. I don't care that I can look out the window and see for myself, if I wanted to do that I would go outside and experience the weather instead of looking at it through an app.

Doug s

Doug s Very reliable especially for someone like myself who works outside and needs to know what is going on with the weather all the time

Kat Bell

Small improvements I just downloaded this app and already really enjoy it. I've been using US versions of weather/radar which are aesthetically pleasing to look at but they aren't very reliable. Only thing I want to suggest for improvement is that the widget displays the "feels like" temp. And possibly jazz up the visual look of the app. :) It looks blah and boring. Otherwise this is fantastic!

Cameron Bryce

Essential Best weather souce? Environment Canada. Best way to view their data? This app! Love it pal... thanks for all your hard work!

Brett Romanow

Great, accurate, fast app Very good app for weather. App is fast and seems to be reliable. Worth downloading.

Simon W

Most acurate weather for south surrey / white rock The most accurate weather for specific micro climate un white rock and south surrey. Great app simple to use

Stephane Michaud

Great app But I have no radar image for Montreal (McGill). Can you fix it please? Thanks.

Anaxophus V

Great, basic weather app Love the easy access to radar imagery! Showing wind chill or humidex values would be awesome though!

Fat Lipp

Faultless App This app is the only weather you need for Canada. The ddev works hard. Used app since '13 on S3 and S5.

Evan Hardy

Awesome app, regularly updated and well made! I use this app daily and appreciate the effort put into it.

Nick Floussov

Looks so amature Just two pages - temperature list and poor looking "radar" locked to location and zoom levels. Animation probably was done by a first year student.

Michele Marques

Just what I need for Canadian weather Weather from Environment Canada is more accurate than Accuweather. I appreciate the alerts.

Doug Hayes

Love It Fast loading, clean look, easy to navigate. Love the author's sense of humor.

reisa levine

Canada weather Satisfies the weather geek in me. Especially love the radar feed! (good luck with that thesis - wonder if you could work in all these comments)

Enna Graham

Great app Love the widget for quick checking and having the weather for multiple areas easy to access.

Mike W

Great weather app! One, if not the only, app that actually uses the Environment Canada forecast, which is just what I wanted.

Judith Stein

Fantastic A weather app that just needs my location and not my personal data? Fantastic! Finally!

E Aalgaard

Nice app, no clutter Just download this app and like it already. Don't change anything.

Vince Berezowski

great app forecast and alerts are as accurate as they can be, support is great, fixes issues quickly

melliemelrusinak

Nice n easy. Love it... Hahaha, love your letter to environment canada in your update. Start my mornings with this app!

Sprguy

I think you should add a Facebook share button. Other than that it's a good App.

kenecrouse

?PERCENT ACCURATE And that's what I need... Does the Job 4 me ! Especially with Radar at your fingertips, Nice application.

Reppy 07

St Paul Alberta isn't here Considering this town is on the world map, it should definitely be on here. Locations are very scarce. I'll stick with The Weather Network

JACK TRIPPER

ALMOST GREAT Can you please add the feels like temperature that most others have. That critical feature will give your app 5 stars.

TIEDefender2nd

Regardless of any tablet I use, this app is still awesome. Weather app that I can always depend upon!

Michael Moiseykin

I like this app more than canadian weather :)

Peter Coates

Almost a 5 The app is clean simple and almost all I want. The one omission is the 24hr hourly forecast. And I feel bad ripping a star fir that as I suspect that that information is missing from the environment Canada xml feed.

Chris Hanson

Came for the weather... Stayed for the humour! I love this app! Whenever there's an update blurb I get a laugh. The humour and sarcasm make it worth the entry price! Seriously it works well for the weather and gives proper radar. The bonus is the Dev regularly updates it. What more do you want?

Phil Swart

Great! Finally found a weather widget that uses Environment Canada as the source. All of the others (stock weather apps or Google Now) pale in comparison for that reason

Geoff Dahl

Straightforward great quality app This is my goto app for Canadian weather. This isn't overloaded with flashy extras and is very functional. The radar link is very useful, and the developer's wit is fantastic. Keep up the great work!

Jocelyn Nelson

Everything I could want in a weather app The addition of cancellable weather alert notifications made this app perfect. I love that I can get all the info I need, a great widget, and weather alerts, all without the weird permissions that other apps require. Thanks for making this!!!

Marcel Journeay

Effective, Informative, and Simple Current wind speed and direction is not always so accessible in a weather widget.

Beven Comeau

Amazing Best weather app I've found in the play store. All of the information from environment Canada. All of the proper things you need to know without all the flashy crap (which I find is great) simple and to the point.

Simon Armstrong

Best weather app This app is simple yet filled with everything needed to quickly find out about your local weather. No ads, no useless functions.

Jeff Dalton

My Go-To App for Weather I have a dozen weather apps and this one is usually the first one I go to if I want to read the weather and quickly check the radar. Unlike some of my other apps this radar loads extremely fast. There's no gimmicks or fancy, memory-hogging features but is nicely laid out. Highly recommended if you only want one app.

Geoff Dahl

Straightforward great quality app This is my goto app for Canadian weather. This isn't overloaded with flashy extras and is very functional. The radar link is very useful, and the developer's wit is fantastic. Keep up the great work!

Tony Wong

Widget works great on Nexus 5 Also works fine on Note 3. App has always give me accurate Environment Canada reports which I find are more accurate than other sites or apps.

Eric Doucette

Great Honestly, now that you can hide away those warning the app is the only one I use.

Doug Macintosh

Simplifies weather ... Been my go-to weather app for ages. I'd like it still better if users could change the order of the locations list (favorite cities).

Warwick White

excellent weather app Informative, ergonomic, useful, pleasant to use

John S.

Best weather app for Canada by far! It doesn't have the most attractive weather widget as weather apps go... however it makes up for that by having the most accurate weather forecast I have come across for Canada. And I have pretty much tried them all! If you are like me and all you need is a no nonsense weather report without all the extra fluff, then I'd seriously consider giving this app a try! The only improvement I would like to see is the ability to adjust the opacity of the grey and white background in the widget.

elizabeth stevenson

Almost perfect Would like weather to be closer to where live. This records at airport. Also add a earthquake alert and long term.

Wayne Mercer

Just what I needed. Thanks! Requires much less personal information than some of its highly ranked competitors. It would be nice to be able to rearrange the order of my locations, or at least have them default to alphabetical order.

Jason Nagy

Best weather app Love this app. The widget is great and it's nice having access to environment Canada's information without loading a browser

Laurie Hart

Excellent app! Attractive, clear & simple for learning about basic weather forecasts with useful access to weather alerts & watches.

Leslie Sharkey

Canada weather app It is great to get the weather in advance and all across the country with a few taps.

Mujtaba Hani

Great little App I like it and it worked well. Can I suggest to include compass feature to be included.

Ann-Louise Winter

Excellent app! Gives me weather and radar so I can plan my commute. Great app. I love the timed radar - very detailed. Alerts help me plan my commute as it's an hour in good weather one way. Thanks, dev!

Gary Barclay

Canada weather & radar 4.5 better results than another app I am using for forecast. Way to go!!!!

Tyrone Whiston

Great Reliable data, great app and fully working! Thanks to the developer for the fix of the background bug. Keep up the amazing work! 5 stars hands down! ?

Joey Sullivan

Fastest radar in any app. All other weather apps seem to take forever to load the radar, but this one uses the simple javascript gif images from Environment Canada which load instantaneously.

Geoff Smith

Excellent interface to EC forecast! Finally a fix to the clunky Environment Canada website! Radar works well also. Well done.

Sabine Semmelrock

It works And it's nice to know there is a real person behind it. Congrats on the Master's degree!

Dave Keith

Works as advertised and forecasts for Canada more reliable than other apps

Benjamin Dover

This is my preferred weather app. It delivers more accurate forcasts than any if the others I use (currently 3 weather apps). The widget shows and communicates well. I wish that the current conditions would deliver the amount of precipitation that has fallen. To me this is just as important as dew point or both wind chill and feels like (aren't they the same??) Good app ... thanks

Tamara Rogers

Widget data font Very small Great data but the "feels like" is the most important data to me but it's in an almost invisible grey tiny font. Smaller than the sample photo of the widget. Please provide an option to in larger font and put the writing in white. Thanks

Ranjan M

Best weather app Tried at least 5 different apps this beats them all love the widget on my note 3

Phil Hochhausen

Great App. I use this app all the time for both business and pleasure. Always correct and always stable. Thanks for the great work.

Juliana Niebergall

The recent updates are great. Works like a charm everytime. No issues.

Ivan Frey

Great Widget! It would be nice to also see the hourly forecast. Jan. 16/16: now there's a link to the 24 hr forecast, thank you!

Keith Zubot-Gephart

The best data, displayed reasonably To put it simply, if you live in Canada and are on Android, I don't know of any better weather app.

Mike Yang

Exactly what I was looking for Widget for this app shows windchill or "Feels like", which is lacking in two other big name weather apps. Plus data source for this app is the more reliable Environment Canada.

Arsen Faramazyan

Amazing Simple, quick, light. The best weather app.

Jingle Bells

Best simple weather app Almost Perfect. Environment Canada data is always much more accurate than weather network. Would love a hyper link to 24 hour forecasts.

Aaron Runge

Simple, accurate weather app Doesn't have the flashy stiff others might have but is small and efficient and most of all accurate.

Justin Pittman

Great Canadian weather app! Uses environment Canada data and has a great today interface. Solid app.

Jesse Anderson

Does what it says. A nice simple UI for Environment Canada.

Cheryl Madigan

Simple bur yet very informative. This is a great app!

Ada Nguyen

Best Weather App Accurate weather and good widget. My favourite info from the app is what the temperature "feels like" outside. Keep up the great work.

Doug MacNeil

Great app Widget works well, radar saves a lot of time fishing though environment Canada website.

donald 247

Don on Sutherland Ave, Kelowna BC Best for Canadians who want REAL weather information about CANADA.

Yetunde O

Unfortunately you do not have my town listed so it's useless to me and will unistall.

Dave Willitts

Not on the ball. Fish and whistle hours behind weathergc.ca they're weather source. Current weather should be current. Rating should be one but I've given two because if not for lazy it would be five.

Ada Nguyen

Love it Accurate weather and good widget. My favourite info on the widget is what the temperature "feels like" outside which makes it unique from other apps. Also keep in mind that some of the fonts that are coloured in grey may not be visible with a white or grey background when using transparent widget.

Arun Gandikota

Accurate readings - good UX/ don't care about the UI Readings come straight from Environment Canada, so the weather is generally believable. Also gives me all the special weather alerts

Todd Bennett

Where's the widget? Great app. Had it on my old phone but when I installed it on my new phone the widget wasn't included.

Rob V

A gem I usually open the Environment Canada (and Climate Change) web site for radar, but this is better.

John Andersen

Very good app. Only wish that gov't weather station was nearer or in my home town.

MelanieJoy Mann

Great app, it has a dark theme, simple, clean, and versatile. You can save weather and warnings for multiple locations. Very nice to look at, no unnecessary flashiness. And most important, it is as accurate as Canadian Weather can possibly be.

Samuel Martin

Weather app rocks Clean and simple with just enough detail and a great look. No special permissions is refreshing. Thanks

Frederic Villeneuve

Where's the radar button? Still a great app, just miss the radar button.

Teo Melchionno

Wonderful! Just one small thing... Everything is perfect, works like a charm and gives you the alerts in Canada before anybody else... There is only one small bug: when Edmonton is selected the current condition icon constantly shows a question mark, but the Edmonton international airport icon works perfectly!

Jennifer Colwell

Home screen widget doesn't work like it shows. It's tricky because it only changes when you drop it on the screen. You don't see what it looks like beforehand

Lija Bradley

Useful app Quick and easy way to see Environment Canada's forecast. One minor formatting error with the widget: the phrase "Feels like 24 C" displayed at the bottom of the widget is cut off. Otherwise it's great!

Shawn Wiggins

It Works It tries to give you good info, environment Canada not always accurate in my area!!

Mark Whitlock

Good but has very limited locations, the closest to my home is17km, yet other software have my location. There is no picture at a glance for the next few days. To much reading which is very bad for the eye's on cells. Otherwise good.

pcrb1979

Easy forecasts App works quick and is easy to use. Radar comes up fast. Weather warnings/notifications work great. Links to draw data from gov of Canada's meteorological site.

Frank Lorelli

Widget is cut off on Nexus 6p Great light weight app and very fast. The only issue I have is you cannot expand the widget vertically. You can see some text box it it's cut off. Please fix.

Jessica MacDonald

Nice and Concise! Such a relief to find a weather app under 10MB! There is just enough information without it becoming overwhelming and the display/layout is all very nice. Well designed and compact. THANK YOU.

Veronica Marci

Wish I could use F instead of C. Being from the states I have to figure it out but I am learning

Erik de Groot

Excellent! By far best app to get official Environment Canada forecasts. Includes notifications for weather alerts and has easy access to radar. Add in an easy to use widget. This is a must have for all Canadians.

Jill Leduchowski

weather app would have gave a 5 star...where did the radar go..lost it after update or is it not working right now??

Joanna Cheung

Almost perfect I wish it would show hourly weather without having to open an external page.

Bernie Doucette

So so Have a Samsung note 4 and the widget doesn't work on this phone. But the rest does.

Ale Jon

A1 App is great and I appreciate your work. There is a couple problems, the app is force closing every time when i click on the radar view seemingly because of improper link to radar map for (baccaro point ns) and it often force closes when I rotate the screen. Thl t11 android 4.2.2 and Xiaomi note 2

Claude Dicaire

Doesn't refresh automatically One of the thing that I find annoying is that it doesn't refresh automatically after a specified time. Same issue with the widget. It has to be done manually on my Samsung Galaxy Note 5 on Marshmallow. In settings there is no option for this. Otherwise very good program.

Keneil Facey

A necessity This app is accurate, and with all the updates it just keeps improving. I might not have time to sit a watch the forecast every morning but wouldn't need to because I never leave home without checking this app. Keep up the good work.

Leslie Sebestyen

I like the way it works. Nice interface, easy to read and understand. But for some reason i can`t get the widget to show any info. It`s just sitting on the screen, nothing showing other that "Canada Weather Widget" Any idea on how to make that work?

BJ

Some good, some :( Nice to tap the widget and get the Environment Canada forecast in a well designed screen. Still having trouble with the widget, however. When shrunk to its smallest size, the data is unreadable in the widget. The font is too large for the smallest widget and numbers are 'tucked under' each other.

Graham Brand

Simply the best This is an amazing weather app. Very simple. I wish it would not link to the environment Canada website for certain things but that's a very minor thing. I use this daily and have found no better, less intrusive option.

Adam Martin

The most accurate Canadian weather app I have found! Excellent app! I love the interface, and I appreciate that there is an AMOLED black theme available. Highly recommended! I only wish the widget icons could be removed or perhaps an option for vector icons instead of the illustrated ones. I find the widget very useful, but the icons clash with my theme. :)

Jeremy Elliott

No ads, accurate weather Gives the same weather info as other bloated apps, doesn't need a bunch of intrusive permissions, fast and doesn't slow down my phone. Highly recommended

Jeff Bjarnason

The best weather app for Android! Simple yet still relays all the pertinent data. Light and Dark interface options are very much appreciated. The developer is quick to solve any bugs, most of which are due to changes with the government website.

Samuel Or

Great with something to improve The widget is not large enough to display 'feels like'. Pls fix that. And sometimes apps is not able to connect to the server

Philip N.

This app is too barebones to rate highly. It runs quickly and gives raw information from Environment Canada's daily forecast, but if you want the 24 hour forecast it just sends you to your browser to the government's website. The radar view works. That's the end of the feature list here. No graphs, nothing else. If what you want is the absolute minimum for simple daily forecasts (and you have an old phone that won't load heavy apps) this one is worth a shot.

Steve Hayes

The perfect app. This is a great app. It works; it's ad-free; it doesn't force me to use my GPS (although I can if I ever actually need it); it gives me access to everything I need. Unlike some I like that the actual temperature being the displayed over the 'feel' value. Great Job!

Luke Robertson

Basic but informative Nothing flashy here. A clean, basic app that gives me the info I need. I much prefer this to the "channel" apps.

Lenita A

Unattractive Design! Doesn't have my City! Having a simple design is fine! Yet, this is unattractive! Some color would help! Even worse, my City of Surrey couldn't be found!!!

Does not need any access to audio, video, pictures, messages...it's good. And the weather works like a charm. Recommended. Thanks

Trevor Selig

Hooray. Happy again Thank you for fixing this problem. I have my weather app set up again. Hopefully no more problems.

Jason Geldart

Use it all the time and never let's me down. very accurate and the radar works well now. Great job.

Tyrone Whiston

Great Reliable data, great app and fully working! Thanks to the developer for the fix of the background bug. Keep up the amazing work! 5 stars hands down! ?

Jeff Bishop

Great app The only thing I would like to see added is the ability to have an audio notification play when an alert is issued.
