How does Weather Waves work?

According to Weather Waves description, the applications provides users with weather forecast, pollen allergy reports, radar maps, links to often visited websites, and an access to a custom web search. To provide with all of the mentioned features, the potentially unwanted program might need the following permissions: “Read and change your data on,” “Read your browsing history,” “Check frequently visited sites,” “Replace the page you see when opening a new tab,” and “Detect your physical location.”

Some users might not like the idea that the application could view their browsing history or detect their physical location as they might consider such data to be personal. Also, some users might find it odd that the application’s so-called custom search might use Yahoo to both gather and display search results.

Such functionality might irritate users who hate ads, especially if the ads appear to be tailored.
