@XLabz, why limit only to 4 days forecast, it should be minimum 7 days and also option to check further as in some other apps.
That was major turn off for me.
Also does this app supports Weather maps? and does it support Landscape mode?

At this moment, W-O predictions for negative temperatures are very bad in the Alps near my home, giving positive errors in the range of 6-8° which I consider dangerous (you expected -10°C, you get -18: your truck just fails --same unreliability for skiers for instance).
And, mind you, these issues also appear for most of the other Weather apps around here (if and when they even dare announcing their sources)
So, my advice would be, rather than going straight against the "I-got-everything-including-radar-photos-music-and-coffee-also" competitors, just specialize on accuracy, multiplying the actual weather sources for instance.
And have it known.
I for one would definitely pay more than the average € for an app whose predictions would show accurate...
