Classic WunderMap Ending? OH NO!!!
I'll add my voice to the many who feel that WU has lost its way, at least as far as user interface is concerned. I stuck with the Classic UI, because the new UI is intolerably ugly and impossible to navigate efficiently. But if the Classic WunderMap is going bye-bye, I guess I'll end my long membership (nine years so far) and use a different weather site.
Constructive suggestion: if you can't keep the Classic WunderMap, hire Edward Tufte as a consultant to help you fix your truly awful new WunderMap.
We understand that transitioning from classic to the new UI will take some adjusting.
We are currently in the process of gathering feedback from users, and plan to address some of the bugs and UI issues on the current WunderMap in the coming months. Part of the effort would also include addressing the visual aesthetics of WunderMap.
Feel free to post any specific feedback or comments here, or write to me at email@example.com
I do not like the new map. It is difficult to navigate.
I also do not like the "new" classic format. I prefer the old one which lets the reader know immediately what the weather forecast is for their area. The daily boxes toward the top of the screen give an immediate picture of what is heading my way. I have found that http://www.weatheronline.com/ has my forecast the way I like it. Why do you keep tweaking a formula that works? It wasn't broke, so why did you "fix" it?
I also am very disappointed in the "new" classic format. Please go back. It was great because all you had but to was glance at the daily boxes toward the top of the screen to tell what was in store weatherwise for your area.
Why would you take something that is so useful away from us and leave us with something that doesn't even approximate it?
I would like to add my voice to the objections to the new Weather Underground format. All those I know who have been using Weather Underground since the old format much prefer it. Why cannot we set up the new panel to show the same information? Please give us some options.
Well, it's a little bit better in the most recent version, but still not as good as Classic. I'm looking at Intellicast and Spark...
