Question for Android Users

I been using the Global Skytracker app for weather. I gave it up because it can't seem to put me in right location. Their notifications from local stations are way off to the ones Environment Canada also sends. I tried the Weather Network app but feel it's a large app that takes long to load even on a phone with 4GB ram.

 

My question is what app do you use for weather? Looking for recommendations.

@tehowennatheI use my browser that has ad-block on a phone that has 2gb ram by means of a bookmark to my saved location on www.theweathernetwork.ca no need for apps or location sharing. If I was lazy I could also create a desktop url shortcut with my launcher adw

I used to do the same but with having family in different locations and traveling when I can, I just like an app that can keep me updated.

@Jessica_T will give yahoo weather a chance. Just hope it can get my location right. I'm next to Montreal but because I'm on a reservation apps always give me town across the river. Only Weather Network got it right but was slow

That feature is entirely useless in someplaces though. For some reason on Public Mobile it auto assumes I am in Toronto whenever I say use current location if I am on Data. I am no where near Toronto, I'm in Northern Ontario. Happened on two different phones. (iPhone 5s and Samsung S8+). It works fine when on WIfi though.

I just use the default App that is on the phone and manually tell it my location for the first page, and let it auto for the second for when I travel.
