Not bad 4/5
The weather channel app takes much longer
By Also Jake
Everything you need to know in one place. Quick and through.
Great app 5/5
Works great. I use it daily
Unable to restore paid purchase 1/5
Paid for the premium version. Reformatted my phone and lost the subscription. Support never responded back. Can't believe they just take people's money with no accountability.
Even easier than wundermap 5/5
If you like to predict when a storm is gonna hit you, this is a great app. I know just when to get the kids out of the water or when to pack up the picnic. Especially like measuring distance with my finger.
Only one needed! 5/5
By far the best weather app out there. Easy to use, loads of features and info.
Convoluted process to remove ads 3/5
By Lurch L
Update 6/22/2017 -
If you download and pay for ad removal in the WU app, you can log into Storm and get its ads removed too. It's a clumsy hidden feature, but it works. Since Storm provides future radar and a visual layout no one else does, this is fortunate.
Edit May 2017 -
The ads can no longer be removed as of May 2017. That reduces screen display on an iPad Mini, just enough that it's much less useful. I gladly paid for ad-free annual subscriptions. Storm was my go-to weather app for over three years, but I'm removing it now.
I'm using RadarCast instead, though it only shows predicted radar an hour ahead. Bye, Storm.
First review -
Storm is the supported replacement for Intellicast, as of 2/25/2014. Storm has all the features of the earlier app. They're in different places, but they're all there. There are also additional new features.
On the iPad:
Select past, future or single-site radar with the selector buttons at lower left. Single site is a new feature. Radar loading rates will depend on your wireless router, network topology and Internet connection much more than anything else.
Select displayed layers by tapping the stacked layers icon at lower right. All the layers, overlays, and watches/warnings selections you know and love from Intellicast are right there. That's also where you choose map type and ranges.
Swipe up near the top of the lower screen segment to see a full 10 days of weather forecasts (not that they're that accurate 10 days out). You'll also see wind chill, relative humidity, barometric pressure, visibility, and wind speed and direction for your selected location on that screen. You can also see rain and snow totals. Tapping the + icon for any day shows sunrise / sunset times, moonrise / moonset times, moon phase, and UV index.
iPhone has similar features but in slightly different places:
Slide up the shallow arrow from the bottom to access past, future and single site radar.
Select displayed layers by tapping the stacked layers icon at lower right.
Tap the key icon at upper right to display the map key.
Add map locations by tapping the name of the present location at center top.
Tap the X to the left of the present location to get hourly and daily weather displayed in the lower screen.
Storm may replace eWeather HD and MyRadar as my go-to weather app. The user interface is fairly intuitive, and it has all the weather information I need plus more. The only folks who might need additional info are pilots who want the aviation layers on MyRadar.
GREAT APP 5/5
This app is great and one of the most accurate weather apps I've found. Will be using it solely going forward
Love it 5/5
Very intuitive. Easy to navigate. Lots of options. Very accurate.
App 5, Ad 0! 1/5
What is with these annoying app philosophies that insist I might appreciate interruptions with ads, or that I might actually or accidentally click on one?
The balance is JUST NOT WORTH IT and why I paid extra for the no-ad version in the first place. Give me back the no ad version.
Bwc 72 5/5
Good app accurate shows all city's in the path trust it more than I do my local stations 👌
One of the best weather apps. 5/5
By RPRC KaveMan
The fact that you can buy a personal weather station and link it up to WU, puts this app over the top. The storm tracker is amazing. Thank you WU!
Sweet App 5/5
I've got four other weather apps on my phone, but this one has some sweet features that none of the others have. Like the way it displays lightning strikes. Good job.
Awesome Weather Sauce 5/5
Been through dozens of weather apps. Now I am able to forecast the weather for my area better than the local meteorologists. Thanks dude!
Ruined by ads 1/5
"Has been relaunched as the same exact app but now with ads!" What a shame.
Good weather App 4/5
By fish a holic
It has a good radar map, local humidity and heat index.
More features than other weather apps.
It was good once... 2/5
In my opinion, this used to be the best weather app around. Unfortunately, they made the decision to do away with the in-app purchase to remove advertising. The once beautiful interface is now clogged up with a large and obnoxious ad. It might even be tolerable if it were a small ad block, but it takes up a substantial portion of the screen that should (and used to be) dedicated to a weather map. Bring back the paid ad removal... It was a poor choice to remove it.
Newest version performs poorly 5/5
Compared to earlier version the latest version's performance is poor. Map does not always load. I see radar data but without a map for reference, it is useless. I have had this app for several years and pay for extras and AD-Free.
Awesome App 2/5
By Jeremy SD
Can't believe they got rid of the ad free subscriptions. My rating went from 5 star to 2 star because of that.
I just replaced the Weather Channel app with this one... it's awesome.
Love the future radar 5/5
The most accurate and glitch free app. Gives alerts and up to the minute details of storm locations. My go to for sure! Love it.
Storm app. 5/5
I love this ! Excellent for traveling and keeping heads up with weather. It saved me from some very bad weather, unlike other weather apps ! Thank you Storm !!
Great app 5/5
Loving mine it's got everything you need in a weather app..
Love it! 4/5
Tracking storms and lightning is quick and easy. I use this app along with the WU app all the time.
Tropical storms 1/5
By Tox loves Boss
I live in Kansas. Our weather rarely is effected by tropical storms. I dont want or need their info, but you have no option that i can find to change back to what was there before. I used to love this app and go to it first😩
Ad free 4/5
5 stars when an ad free version is available
Great weather app 5/5
By Coal Roller20
Easy to use, well planned out no hassle's
The new Intellicast (STORM) 1/5
The ads at the top are unsat and detract from its usefullness
So so 3/5
Great App, But theres Ads 4/5
I used this app for over a year with an ad-free subscription. Now that they have done away with that, it is time to move on.
New weather app! 5/5
I deleted all my weather Apps on both my iPad and iPhone and replaced them with this! It's a great app with all the information you could want.
So much information, and very customizable
Best weather app 5/5
My go to weather app. I've had it nearly 2 years.
No ads. 1/5
I loved Storm until they took away my ability to purchase the subscription service. One star now simply because of that removal. This was a great app until i had to start looking at ads. I am willing to pay for an ad free experience. Why do you want to lose so many customers over this?! Boo. 👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻
Great App 5/5
Great app displays weather as stated. Have not used it during our bad season. Have not had any hurricanes.
Great site 5/5
I have a concession stand in a state park. I use this app several times a day to see what's heading out way.
Great weather app 5/5
Sometimes you just want to know whether a bad one is headed your way, and whether there's lightning afoot. Storm gives you exactly what you need to know quickly, without having to click all over creation. It's one of exactly two apps I allow my phone to update in background.
Very recommended 5/5
By ryan crossman
Works really well for all my weather needs
Good product. 5/5
It is a great aid for planning and tracking storms
Ads are obnoxious. 2/5
I would pay for a subscription. Nice looking interface. Too bad there are banner ads plastered to the top. Won't be using because of that.
Nice App 5/5
I really love this app. Radar is excellent and love the wind indicator. I'll have to agree, I never even notice the adds......love it, my go to app for weather.....
New version 2/5
By Wildcat maniac
Where's the new release?
By Papa r t
No longer my favorite, lost to much screen to ads, distraction not acceptable, would rather pay for using it, please make ads go away.
Very accurate 5/5
By FL snow
Like it helps me estimate my distance for walking, florida summer ✌🏻
No Add Sub anymore. 1/5
By Metorologist eli
This is the way to a failing weather app. BRING THE AD FREE SUBSCRIPTION BACK.
The best weather App I have found 2/5
Now that one can not get it with out commercials splashed across the top I am looking for a different weather app. Especially on my iPad which is my normal check the weather device.
I check the weather every morning, even though it is pretty consistent in Florida. We do have variations, the occasional cool spell in the winter and rainy spells on occasion etc. Storm provides me. With all of the information to enable me to plan my day. The information is well organized and presented. What more can I say.
New favorite weather app 5/5
Over the years I have cycled thru a lot of weather apps, paid and free. I work outdoors and need to dress for the weather. Many times I need to know the weather conditions days in advance. Storm does a great job of keeping me accurately updated on the weather conditions. Plus the lightning and storm tracks help me to know when to take cover.
More than Just Information 5/5
By Roo's Mac
This App gives the most comprehensive information, and allows for custom alerts, for various conditions. I use it for boating information and planning my day.
I depend on Storm 5/5
I really love the accuracy and ease of use along with the notifications! This is a very good app, I depend on it here in stormy Florida!
Half and half 2/5
Half the time it works and half the time it doesn't. Radar overlays routinely don't show up. You have to quit the app, switch between current and future. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't.
