A few weeks ago I talked about the Australian Bureau of Meteorology (BOM) and their weather app. If you remember, I was not happy my favourite feature of the app had been taken away and it hadn’t returned.
Guess what, they’ve updated the app! But in a huge FAIL, I still don’t have my “feels like” temperature. To make it worse, they have “Feels like –” (as you can see below). I think it was better when the whole function was gone, rather than having a line for it 🙁
They’ve gone for a more pastel colour palette – which for my colour blind eyes has made the radar much harder to view.
Before the app was very clean. It certainly isn’t now because there is a lot more information. It’s a bit overwhelming because it isn’t as easy to see what you want to know, but this is one feature I am sure I will get used to it.
I do like that they pin your location on the radar. Much easier to see whether or not the rain will come (we have a lot of mountains around us, so it is very unpredictable).
I’m sure that overall the app update is an improvement – like anything there is an adjustment period. But I wish they’d included the feels like in the update.
Do you have any apps that updated, but you didn’t think it was an “up” date?
