The app hasn't been updated in close to two years with its last one making it compatible with iOS 7, some bug fixes, performance enhancements, and new features. It scores very highly with users who have given it 4.5 out of five stars. Users enjoy just how easy it is to access a seven-day forecast and appreciate that it's not just for land but also for water.
