NOTE: I recommended the following settings due to Google being inept:
- Google Play Protect Issues if the weather monitoring service keeps closing out. The Google Play Protect software can mark it wrongly as unwanted software and kills the service. This can be life threatening if you rely on weather alerts. They don't even alert the user that they have taken any action against the application. I have found that it still will kill the application on Google ROMs even if the play protect is disabled. I recommend using alternative ROMs in this case, like "Lineage OS".
If you run a logcat on your phone, you could see this if you have issues:
W/Finsky:  vrj.a(49): Unwanted app (MUwS) without is_muws flag was returned with verdict POTENTIALLY_UNWANTED on autoscan: net.ruckman.snapweather
- Disable battery optimizations. Google will try to prevent the service from using too much battery and prevents it from operating properly. Which isn't true. I took great effort to ensure good battery operation.
- Allow location at all times even when the app is closed. Google tries to prevent background location operation which is needed to monitor weather in the background.
- Allow notifications or the app will not be able to warn you about inclement weather warnings.
- Whitelist the application to alert through DND (Do Not Disturb) so you can be alerted of weather alerts when sleeping. Google's Digital Wellbeing will put your wellbeing at risk by not allowing weather alerts at night.
Weather can happen in a Snap.
Get weather information when you need it for free, without ads, and have complete privacy with peace of mind. The application only needs your location to get you alerts and weather for where you currently are.
