Was Great. Until they stopped the Paid Ad-Free version. 1/5
The stupid ads take up all my screen real estate. Loved my paid version 1000 times better. I'd rather pay two bucks than see ads. Going to Radar Scope now. Sorry WU.
Great visuals 5/5
I love Storm for the great winds aloft visual - as well as the tropical storm presentation.
Very customizable 5/5
I've been using this app for a while now and I like how I can see what type of weather patterns through different filters depending on location in which I need to see it. Alaska is a huge state and our weather forecasters are your typically right some of the time kind of reporters. Plus I like to get the earthquake info in the same spot too. Works really well for me.
Storm center 5/5
By The old rockeater
It's a great app, it could save your life. Alerts help you stay in touch with the weather!
Storm center, I wouldn't leave home without it!!
Great Weather App 5/5
Best weather application I used. The precision and accuracy of the data is awesome. The quality of the unique features is impressive.
Love the integration with Wunderground 5/5
By Bman the answer man
I usually check the wind patterns in this app.
Great app 5/5
I use this app daily and it stays up to date within 10 minutes. I wish it had real time tracking, but it's still one of the best weather apps out there. It provides just about any information you could want for an advanced user to track weather changes. They include information that some novice users may not understand how to use, but with a little research one can figure out how the information can help them. What is great for novice users are the short explanations that are provided when you click on storm information. While the free app is good, I really enjoy the ad free version. It's worth the subscription yearly.
In South Florida, lightning data is a lifesaver. Literally. Originally I could trust Storm for reliable up-to-date info on strikes. For the last few months, data has been intermittent. Radar is still there, but lightning info may or may not show up, as if Storm had shifted to a different monitoring process. Time to move on, after many years of satisfaction.
Absolutely love app...but...the ads 4/5
UPDATE: By reading a few other reviews I found a way of removing the annoying ads. You have to purchase that option through their other app...then have a WU login that you use across all their apps. I have my favorite weather app back...but it was a pain.
UPDATE. my ad free subscription just ended...the ads are very distracting. While I probably will not delete, as it is a great app...I'm moving it to a folder and bringing up a different weather app on my home screen. Please bring back an option to remove ads... moving from 4 to 2 stars.
They are dropping the ability to remove the ads. I'm willing to pay for that ability...but if that is not an option, the app will get deleted....very sad.
Sick of weather channel? 5/5
Come here. Great info, clear presentation once you get used to finding stuff.
The Storm Mobile App For Iphone 5/5
I've be into weather since I was young and starting out in construction some 47 year's ago. I'm now 58 and still in the buisness. And in this buisness weather means everything. And with no B.S., this app is point on accurate! Rain heavy or light, lightning strike's, hail, wind velocity and direction, snow, sleet, tornado's, hurricane's and their progression. This is one hell of a great weather tool for those of us that depend on knowing what the weather is doing from one minute to the next.
Average now 2/5
By Giant Cyclist
Absolutely disgusted that the paid app is gone. Deleted.
Great App 5/5
As a mariner weather is very important,this is the best weather app. I've ever used
I love have insight into the weather 5/5
I do a lot outdoors and this app really helps me to plan my day so that I am out during the best weather possible. Really love it
It was my favorite and then 4/5
By Weather mama
The ads took over. It's still the best weather reporter but the ads definitely ruin the experience.
The best!!! PERIOD!!! 5/5
My California cousins were here in July years ago, it was hot & humid & just ripe for a thunderstorm. I kept checking your app trying to stay informed. They had never seen such a storm so they were all watching from our deck. I hustled them in when I heard thunder, knowing if there's thunder there's lightning very possible. Of course they protested (4 year old triplets). I told them they could watch the storm in our sunroom which faces southwest. As we were watching the sky, the National Weather Service issued a tornado warning. I told the girls that if a siren went off we would be going down stairs right away because that meant there was a tornado in our area. They asked what a tornado was. My husband tried to explain it to the triplets but he was a little too in depth..they didn't get it. I said to my husband "let me try". I said to the girls "have you ever seen the Wizard of Oz with Dorothy & her little dog Toto?? Yes they all said!! Well, remember in the very beginning when it's very windy & blows things around? Yes they all said in unison. That's what a tornado does. They were in awe!!! We sat & watched the storm approach for another 30 minutes talking about the movie, the lightning & thunder. They were starting to get bored with it all when the siren goes off. I said ok girls that's our signal to go to the basement, single file, no pushing please. I needn't have said a word. The took each other's hands & down they went slowly & in single file. I was thrilled they learned by just a movie affiliation. I just want to say thank you for had it not been for your app, I would never have been informed to tell them what to expect. I am a loyal fan for life!!!
Easy & Useful 5/5
It's simple and gives the information that I need.
Great storm tracker 5/5
We use it often to anticipate weather events in the foothills where we live in Colorado. We are always amazed to watch storm clouds come over the mountains just as storm tracker is showing it on the iPad screen. Surprisingly accurate
Best weather app 5/5
I use this every day. Easy fast perfect.
The best 5/5
I've tried many weather appt. This is the best.
This app fascinates me 5/5
I am able to learn more about storms using this simple app more than I have been able to without it. It keeps me well notified on storms and how fast they are coming to me so I can prepare ahead of time.
Awful Forecasting 2/5
While the radar function is adequate, the forecasting is inaccurate to the point of being comical.
Can't find location on iPad 1/5
By not the app your looking for
I have storm on iPhone & works ok.. but storm can't find location either by gps or by entering location....
Great weather app! 5/5
I've used The Weather Channel's app for years and got REALLY tired of the ads and videos.
Decided to try Storm and I love it! So nice to have the radar right on the screen when I open the app (rather than having to scroll through a mine field of click-bait). The basic information I usually want is down at the bottom.
I also love the fact that there's lots of data and graphs if I want to dig deeper.
A little annoying that you have to restart "follow-me" if you use a saved location.
Also, it seems like the hurricane advisories lag NHC. That could be troublesome since I live on the Gulf Coast and need up-to-date storm info if one is headed my way.
Would like the option to select "Atlantic" or "Pacific", instead of distance or all tropical storms.
Great early warning 5/5
Great for outdoor recreation when in areas of likely stuff rm activity.
Very accurate 5/5
Great weather app. Very accurate and informative.
Best radar I have found 5/5
By Dave and bud
I use this app mostly to track weather events. The radar seems to be the best I've found.
Nice easy to use app 5/5
Love the app. Easy to use.
Best Weather App around! 5/5
I've had this app for over 10 years, and it's great! It covers all my needs perfectly!
So much in one app 5/5
My husband and I are skywarn volunteers. And we live in an area where watching the weather is important. I have used many many weather apps. I use some very extensive ones as well. This app is my go to app for quick storm monitoring. It has become my favorite with its easy to use features and graphics. Love the lightning features. Comes in handy when wanting to film and photograph storms.
It has been very reliable ! 5/5
I have enjoyed the app. Is easy to setup and view the map.
Wrecked by Ads 2/5
No longer offer "ad-free" version. Ruined by the ads, this app is crippled and inaccurate.
No longer an ad-free option. 1/5
WU removed the paid ad-free option and so I've removed the app.
A must have. 5/5
Exactly what daddy needs. Except for annoying ads that take up valuable screen space. Eff you!!
Great app! 5/5
By Gaming Nana 2
Love this app!
What did you do? 😡 1/5
This was my go to app for weather. Now it feels like junk. Radar doesn't work. When I can see precipitation and try to see the past, it looks a lot like dial up. I'm very disappointed.
Better reports 5/5
More details of systems, lightning and rain.
Finally an accurate weather app 5/5
Really like it's flexibility
Great App 5/5
This is my go to app for any type weather conditions. Keep up the good work
Bring back no ads!!!! 1/5
I hate ads. There's no reason to not have an option to opt out of ads. Bring back the no ads and I might keep using this app. Weather wise this is the best app out there but I'm always accidentally hitting an add when navigating in the app. Bring back the opt out option!!! Otherwise I'm shopping for a new weather app. Seriously. No ads!!
Willing to pay more to remove ads 2/5
I am not happy about the decision to eliminate the ad free version!
False alarms 5/5
I use this app often to check
weather. I also like the earthquake reports since I live in OK
where earthquakes are quite common.
Weather at your fingertips 5/5
This is the best weather app I have found. It is quick to load and easy to use
Storm app 5/5
Best of the best 5/5
By siggy's tunes
I have used many still use many weather apps and when I came across this app I was amazed at the amount of information that it provides and the format was very user-friendly love it.
Does WU Hate Itself? 3/5
Why does Weather Underground keep doing things to drive long time customers away? First the website functionality, now the "you have to see our ads" decree.
Well, unless you're keen enough to do what other WU users have done and purchased the ad-free from the OTHER app. Either WU forgot to mention that little tidbit in the ad free part of storm, or they are planning to kill the feature in the other app too.
I understand that non-paying users should have to suffer through the ads, but the ads seem to dominate the data to where they load faster than the radar images. If I was at least getting full function with the radar AND suffering through the annoying ad banners it wouldn't be so bad.
Bottom line, this is still a good app IF you can get rid of the ads. I've reloaded and resubscribed to the other WU app and removed the ads that way... at least until they decide to ruin that app too.
Love this app! 5/5
I use this app every day and multiple times during the day .It is easy to use and accurate.this is the only weather app I use😄😄
