Found some good insights on Google Play:

 1.  WIDGET gone
 2.  RAIN-TOTAL gone
 3.  WIND-info gone
 4.  PRIOR-DAY info gone
 5.  LANDSCAPE-VIEW gone
 6.  HOURLY-graph buried
 7.  Daily graph w SIX-days/screen gone, only THREE days/screen, so CAN'T SEE 6-DAY FORECAST or TRENDS
 8.  Hourly temp & wind graph gone. Split into two graphs, so CAN'T SEE TEMP & WIND RELATIONS or TRENDS
 9.  X-axis rulings & NUMBERS gone, so GRAPHS UNREADABLE
10. USELESS rainbow circle thermometer takes up whole OPENING SCREEN that used to be filled with info

To be honest once they started with the subscription to get rid of the ads I was done.
Your're right though, it used to be a good app. :sad:

They've already used up far more of my goodwill than they are worth.  The sooner WU shuts down the better.

They're like a bad habit, just can't get rid of it. As long as brand X and brand Z keep advertising that they upload to WU before you even get it out of the box, the travesty that has become WU will continue. AFAIC, 99% of new PWS owners only care about their data being online, no idea where it's going and no idea what it should be. The carnage continues... :roll:
