I don't like the "new look" and am left wondering why this was changed.
Love AccuWeather App 5/5

Latest screen layout 3/5
The latest updates have re-done the screen layout and it is not as user-friendly as it once was. Miss the old version!
Difficult to use 1/5
Poor accuracy and a difficult lay out make this app useless
Bad changes 2/5
New changes made it worse
What's up with the radar 3/5
By Titleist Townsend
Your app is almost perfect. Fix the radar. It's 2017...there has to be a way for faster load and better image quality.
RADAR is a one star at best...the rest of the app is five stars!
Easy and fast 5/5
By Sharon P.
Excellent clear concise. Awesome.
They updated the app.
Still not even close! Screwed by the wrong forecast AGAIN
Don't waste your time!
Not so good 2/5
Started out great, but the increasing UI changes is getting tiring. Add in the location tracking they were caught doing- and I’d guess the company has either changed ownership, or has run out of ideas.
Got it to download: 5/5
Got it to download but it took a while, accuweather is a great app to use for me, and I love it.
When you tap radar nothing happens
The best! 5/5
I have tried several weather apps and none compares to this app. More accurate than others and more information than most. Easy to use.
By Basie's human
Not totally accurate. Said rain would stop in 45 minutes when it had already stopped.
This is not as good as the one before it
Love this app 5/5
I love this app. It is so accurate! Right down to the minute!! Really helped us plan our time better while in vacation!
Not the app I had 1/5
Since you changed the app, I use other weather apps more often, and yours less than I did before. Why'd you fix what wasn't broken?
This app went from Daily use to replaced 1/5
Where's all the information?
The new format makes it look like it was designed on the cheap by someone who had to pay by the letter
No control over notifications. 3/5
I had to turn notifications off entirely for this app because it keeps blowing my phone up with stuff like surf advisories that mean nothing to me (don't surf, don't live near a beach). Some control over this would be good.
👎🏾👎🏾👎🏾👎🏾👎🏾 17th January 2017 1/5
location is not working I cannot delete favourite location I see the delete but when I select nothing happened. I JUST UPDATED 1/12/16 and still the same problem stated above removing useless app 100% regret doing update just now. 1/17/17 just checked problem and NO IMPROVEMENTS STILL GLITCHES IGNORED HENCE IF NO STARS WERE POSSIBLE THAT WOULD BE MY RATING AND NOW ADS MADE ME PERMANENTLY DISGUSTED WITH THIS APP🌡
Awesome App 5/5
By Mel A. S.
I've been looking for this. Radar and forecast are accurate and there are many options within the app. Definitely recommend this one.
Outstanding weather app. Use it all the time!
So far this app has been spot on.
Great App! 5/5
Incredible accuracy- we were on tour in NYC- people on the tour bus didn't know whether to bring their umbrellas with them. I checked my Accuweather app, it said "rain in 20 minutes." I got laughed at- how could I know it would rain in 20 minutes?! Sure enough, we were still on the bus and 20 minutes later, it began to pour... people just looked at me and said "woah!" I said , "yeah- that's Accuweather for you..." ten people on the bus downloaded it right there... I don't go anywhere- vacation, road trips, out of town, without Accuweather- it's THE most accurate weather!!!
No Longer a quality app 1/5
I used to tell everyone how great the AccuWeather app was before the latest update. It is nice looking I will give it that, but it has lost its accuracy. Many times it will tell me it's sunny or something and I look outside and oh look, it's been dark for over an hour.
I will be finding another app to use until the quality returns.
No tropics tracker! 2/5
I'm not sure why a weather app wouldn't have a simple tropics tracker for hurricanes and such. Please add this feature! Right now I'm having to use another app just to see what's coming my way!
Highly inaccurate 1/5
Currently shows my location as thunderstorms. None in the area.
Best Watch weather app, but... 3/5
... the location isn't right. Apparently it says I'm in a different town than where I really am. It's nearby, sure, but other apps seem to have no issues with getting a more accurate location. Don't see why it's a problem with this app.
Much improved! 4/5
Interface is much better in this version and hourly weather information was finally added which is excellent.
A needed improvement is to allow the user more control over customizing notifications. Since I am not close to the water, I do not need to receive rip notifications or surf advisories. Currently there is no way to turn these notifications off without turning off all notifications.
By Quagmire Hall
Really helpful weather reports for travelers.
I'm flying from Atlanta to La Guardia and was able to install both airport sites ...plus
view a 15 day forecast. Big help in packing
Clothing! Nice. Thanks 👵🏻
Great app 4/5
Best iteration so far. Very user friendly.
Accurate & Reliable 5/5
It's awesome that technology can give us the weather in an instant.
AccuWeather displays all I need to know to make a decision on my daily activities.
AccuWeather folks, you are very much appreciated

Bring back Minutecast in Notification Center 3/5
AccuWeather app is the standard by which all other weather apps are judged.
Everything was great until the most recent update when the Minutecast was removed from the Notification Center.
The convenience of a glance at the Notification screen to determine if rain/snow is in the forecast has now been changed to requiring a press to open the app and waiting for the app to open and refresh before finding out the same information.
The definitely represents a feature downgrade. AccuWeather should bring back the previous functionality asap.
Current Conditions = FAIL 3/5
New design of the first section - the customizable Current Conditions is not user friendly! The larger, more graphic quick visuals are better UI/UX design, ESPECIALLY for the visually impaired. This WAS one of the best features of AccuWeather. I've noticed since the last update, I tend to open a competitors app that has better visuals of Current Condotions.
Map/Radar Could Be Better (still needed)
Adjusting the opacity level of the Radar layer is no longer available. Which is a problem when attempting to determine what route to use when commuting to and from work during bad weather. Without this feature you can NOT see roads clearly through the radar layer when zoomed in - being able to adjust the opacity level fixed this problem. Additionally, the map's snapping back out to its predefined zoom level is frustrating as the map is not detailed enough with some major important thoroughfares (Freeways, Highways) not being visible.
Very Good Weather App (6/2/2016)
AccuWeather is highly customizable. Multiple locations, radar & satellite views, forecast setting 1day up 25days, and the order of home screen sections can be manually customized.
The hilarity of folks balking at things like the accuracy of the hourly forecast not being "accurate to the minute and exact location" - REALLY? Presumptuous much? - expecting that minutia of weather forecasting, is a bit absurd. Take a look at the radar if you're needing that kind of detail, that's what it's for.
It's a weather app, a very good weather app that gives me all the data I need to make decisions - looks like there's 50% chance of showers between 1:00 pm and 3:00 pm, better make sure the umbrella is in my golf bag, possible snow and freezing temps forecast next week in Cleveland during the conference better pack the parka. It's a weather app and tells you what you need to know to make smart decisions. What else do you need.
Probably the Best Weather App (Mar2016)
Is a very good app that is continually being refined by the developers.
Hourly Wind Compass not Automatic (Jan2015)
There will be a few that will post that the Directional Wind Compass for hourly forecast has been removed or isn't there, but its is, user must tap in area and swipe up for it to appear. The default should be "ALWAYS" visible.
Reigning favorite weather app 5/5
Update 9/18/17: the new interface is much improved allowing easier access to most common features without having to scroll all the way down to get to them. Refresh time has also improved.
Previous: Currently my go to app for weather forecasts. I have about a half dozen apps and often compare their info. Accuweather is generally right on the money though there are inexplicable, rare moments when it loses its mind. Also it's refresh time seems longer than other apps I use - maybe 3-5 seconds where others might take 1-3. I don't generally pay for weather apps since there are so many good, free ones. This one has been the go to for many months.
Your talent for the weather is very much appreciated .... 5/5
By Having FUN !!!
Thank you for all the detailed weather ....Your communication and explanations is very caring, to keep us safe from danger...
Five stars 5/5
By AZ Blue Sky
Used this app on Blackberry Z10 for 4 years! Love the simple clear interface. Bought the platinum version, better by a long shot on Apple ipad mini 4👍
Cyclone in Lansdale 1/5
Just received a tropical cyclone alert for Lansdale Pa. Really you need a review for this? Uninstalling this AP.
Poor Updates 1/5
I like the previous versions that gave you wind speed, direction, gusts, and other info all easily accessible. The later versions make it a pain like every other weather app.
Horrible and confusing 1/5
Extremely difficult to navigate. Bulletins don't match current weather! Deleting this app.
Difficult to navigate 1/5
Trying to just look at my local forecast...not seeing any possible way of doing that! Very easy to look at the local map, but you'd figure along with the "Map" you'd see "forecast" but no.
Great app, but with a huge radar limitation 1/5
Edited - I still like this app a lot, but they really need to do something about the radar map. It is horrible! Every time I tap on radar, I get "loading, loading, loading". And I am on Verizon with five bars. What good is a Weather+ app if the radar does not work?
I've tried all the top weather apps available here and while I personally think AccuWeather could be thevery best of them all, it has a major problem with the radar map. In all the other apps I've tried, you can pinch/zoom the distance so the radar map covers an area that the user wants to view (not the developer). With AccuWeather, the minimum distance you can view on the radar map covers from the top of Tennessee to the bottom (in my case), which is about 140 miles and not nearly sufficient to see when rain is starting or stopping at my location. Not sure why they did this, but if it's stopping me from purchasing the in-app Premium version, I'll bet it's stopping others as well. Fix this, AccuWeather, and I'll change my review to five stars and pay for the Platinum version.
Hell no 3/5

App leaves real room for improvement 1/5
While the free app gives lots of decent information, god forbid you set a location while traveling. You have to reset the app to default removing ALL stored information because the DELETE button does absolutely nothing! And you continue to receive alerts from places more than 600 miles away months after you visited.
By Last Patriot
Really excellent weather app.
I have tried three or four and this one is the best. It pinpoints the location the best and present the weather info quite well.
If you are looking for a weather app, give one a try.
By Indy, but not that one
This latest update is great!!!! It's faster, the scrolling is smoother and everything I need is available right on the home screen! You clearly put a lot of thought into this redesign. Well done! Tutorial no longer needed.
The only suggestion I have is there's still some extra real estate on the home screen - could we have an option to get 1 or 2 more current conditions displayed?
Different measurements between iPhone and Apple Watch 3/5
By MAC Go Pokes
Why is the real feel measurement different on my watch then it shows in the app on my phone?
App is great the only problem I've had was while on vacation to would not switch to that area for weather
Version 10.6 is awesome 5/5
Improved layout makes it a great upgrade.
Please bring back MinuteCast! 2/5
I used to love this app for the MinuteCast, or "rain ring" as others have called it. With the new update, the feature I relied on the most is gone. Please bring it back!
Cool weather reporting 5/5
Nice way to stay current on weather conditions
