Loved. Dumped. Bring back ad free sub. 1/5
I just trashed the app after many years of being a subscriber. Why? You won’t allow the option to pay to remove ads. Seriously? I would pay more. No other app has the detail, clean gui, and ability to see NOAA Office forecast discussion like this app.

REINSTATE ADVERTISING REMOVAL SUBS 5/5
I've a personal weather station (pws) on WU. When home I'd like to view my own data in Storm. As such it's used very often. Best weather app I've used. (Many, weather geek)
Note says Advertising Removal Subscriptions will NO longer be available. PLEASE DO NOT DO THIS. If so it will be one star and I'll discontinue using it. That would be very disappointing! PWS owners supply data for free and we don't mind paying to remove subs. DON'T RUIN A GOOD APP. If the goal is to increase advertising revenue it won’t happen if people remove the program.
Where’s the weather radio 3/5
I love this app but I used that weather radio a lot and now it’s gone. When power goes out due to tornadoes or other bad weather. I used the radio a lot to hear what was going on and if it’s safe to come out or if we need to run for the seller but you don’t have it anymore. Please put it back. Some people need to be able to hear what’s going on in really bad weather. Where is the weather radio at I want it back please or I’m gonna have to find a diff app
The greatest thing ever, but looking elsewhere now... 1/5
By Wood turtle
I just learned that Storm is killing ad-free subscriptions. As good as this app is, this is an absolute deal-breaker for me, so it’s time for me to look for a new weather app. What completely unnecessary stupidity.
Would be useful without useful buttons pixels away from ads. 1/5
Not gonna use an app that counts on me accidentally opening ads with poor design choices. Sad, the radar and data looks good but accidentally opening ads is never good.
Reading on down it looks like the ads are a new mistake. Hopefully they bring back the ability to fix them soon, I'll check back in a while.

Happy to use the app great info
Was a 5 now a 1 … Time to uninstall 1/5
Paid for no ads - still would, but not an option. Therefore me as an app user is no longer an option. To use an apparently popular terminology now, … sad.
Used to be a great app... 1/5
This *was* a great app but not anymore. I paid for an ad free app every year and then 2 months after renewal they decided to abandon this app and the ads came back !! On top of that, the Videos section, which had amazing things in the past, hasn’t been updated in a long time and it looks as tho it never will again. It’s a real shame as this was my favorite forecasting app, the graphs for temperature, rain chances etc. are great but now this app is just a discarded shell of its former glory.
WUnderground, PLEASE work on this app again !!! I’d gladly pay MORE for an ad-free version (up to say $9.99 per year) if it meant I could keep using this app, Video section updates included.
If you’re looking for radar products, I *highly* suggest RadarScope Pro as it is, by far, the best radar app available.
Ads ruin the app 1/5
While you can buy ad removal in one of their other apps and get the ad removal in Storm, it is a ridiculous work around. Get off the fence and add back the ad removal subscription to the app. I hate it when companies ruin their apps trying to squeeze out a buck.
9 months without update?! No iPhone X support 1/5
Need iPhone X support. And needs to be updated more often.
Bring back the ad free version 1/5
This used to be the best weather app because you could pay to make it ad free. Please bring that back. Having a banner that advertises Storm or the weather channel in its own app is stupid and it takes up so much room. It is extremely distracting. Off to find a new weather app. Sorry to see you go Storm.
Great app, poor business operation 1/5
Great app without the ads. The company no doesn’t offer ad free option, but still collects the fee from customers. I’ve tried to communicate with developer with absolutely no response to several queries. I’ve cancelled my subscription
New go-to for weather 1/5
Nice upgrade from the previous iOS app. Not perfect, but darn close.
Update: No ad free option means that sadly I’ll be deleting this app and looking for a replacement. SMDH
Why two apps for fewer features. 1/5
By Call Me MacPhisto
Seriously. Between two apps you guys can’t give us back adjustable radar height and such? Cheap. Good luck getting people to pay for your work ever again.
Agreed! The Ad’s ruin this app... 1/5
By J's Revolution
I totally agree with everyone posting how this was a wonderful app until they decided to put back in AD’s, real shame! Must find another weather app :(((
Guaranteed AD removal money, why wouldn’t you want that?
The ads stink 1/5
The ads have ruined the app. Wish I could pay for ad free.
Used to be perfect 1/5
Storm was nearly perfect up until they decided to push Storm Radar, which doesn't provide all the info on the main screen that I need, and now I can't get rid of the ads in Storm anymore. Rest assured that they won't get any money from me, either directly or through ads. I don't know why you had to ruin a good thing but you did.
Great App, notifications work well 5/5
Storm has become my new favorite weather app, no hesitations on recommending it to anyone.
Keep up the good work!
Paying for no ads - ad on startup 1/5
By Patrick Kramer
They pulled this same crap with there other app, no ads means no ads; not sometimes.
Very cool 4/5
By loaded dice
Great app! Love the dashboard, it has everything except expand and contract on the map. Also wish it had more radar options. And where does it tell you sunrise and sunset times?
Far better than my local weather station. Great job!
The best app to show radar reflectivity 5/5
It is the best app to show the radar reflectivity. It shows the reflectivity in the 5 hours future slowly. It is the best!
Ads ruined this app 1/5
This used to be a great weather app with the option to purchase an ad-free subscription. Paying for ad-free is no longer an option - a silly move by the developer since the ads are almost illegible, waste screen space, and are pointless for people who have enabled ad blocking in Safari. ProTip: People who purchase ad-free subscriptions also run ad blockers for Safari - the ads are never going to be displayed. Avoid this formerly great weather app
Ad Free is Gone! 1/5
Unfortunate you decided to remove the ad-free subscription for WU Storm. I loved this app but like other users the app displays an ad banner which I abhor, so I’m deleting the app and going with a different, ad-free one. The web service offered here is noting but an invite to more spam, which I DEFINITELY do not need!
Can’t remove ads 1/5
I cannot delete the ads, but I can delete the app.
Sad Day - TWC bought WU and now.... 1/5
It is a sad day. The Weather Channel has bought WU and now the advertising madness that is TWC is going to ruin the best weather app ever (WU).
TWC is now trying to get you to move over to their junky Storm with NOAA app. Also, WU has announced they are no longer accepting AD-FREE subscriptions - Proving TWC is more concerned in banner clicks, advertising revenue and other stuff than providing good weather information.
It is a shame. I purposely use WU because it WASN’T TWC and happily paid an annual fee!!!
Good luck and farewell WU. It was a good run. It’s too bad TWC had get their dirty hands on you guys.
Shows Ads even after paying to remove them 1/5
In terms of functionality, this apps works very well and is relatively user friendly. Having said that, I’ve been a paid subscriber for a couple of years, but the developer recently launched another weather app, and now I receive an advertisement for that new app upon starting up my Storm app every time. I didn’t pay the fee to have the developer pick and choose what ads to send me. The term ‘Remove Ads’ means NO MORE ADS of any type. The developer is certainly not delivering on their commitment for a paid subscription.
No longer what it was 2/5
Used to love this app and even paid for a subscription. Now they've gone ad-based and the result is a big disappointment. Ads take up so much space, particularly on the iPad, that the scrolling data window can only two lines in landscape.
I don't use this app as often as I did in the past, but somehow it still used over 600GB of cellular data. Must be those damned streaming ads and videos.
Since Weather Underground was absorbed by NBC/Weather Channel, they've lost their way.
Good app 5/5
Easy loading and most accurate of all my local stations apps.
No Ads! 1/5
Has been my only weather app for years! Now I have ads...very disappointed. The Weather Channel app I can pay for no ads so I will be moving to them.
Needs a major update for iPhone X!
Been long time user and subscriber to the ad free version of Storm. Super disappointed that I can no longer get rid of the annoying ads. Please offer ad fee version again.
Used to be a great app... 1/5
This was by far my favorite weather app. I’ve always been willing to pay a subscription for add-free service, but they’ve now discontinued that option. I HATE obnoxious adds using up valuable screen real estate and butting their way into my experience. A certain amount of this is to be expected on the internet. But with apps, I’m more than willing to pay for an add-free experience. However, since Weather Underground has thrown away that option, I have no choice but to now throw away their highly obnoxious app from all my devices.
Ads only now 1/5
I used to use weather channel and liked it, payed a subscription for and had no ads. They did the same thing made it ads only, I stared looking for another weather app and found storm tried it out for a couple weeks loved it and started paying yearly subscriptions. I found out that weather channel had bought this app several years ago I knew that it’s days were numbered well here we are ads only now. Well it screws up the screen space and “I don’t won’t adds” I don’t use apps with ads so you loose again I’m going somewhere else where there is no ads. TRY OFFERING GREAT SERVICES TO MAKE MONEY INSTEAD OF PUSHING ADS ON ME.
Good weather app 4/5
After I got used to all the bells and whistles, it is a good app with up to date info. Still true after two years. My go to weather app
Please update watch app and update for iPhone X 4/5
Phenomenal weather app, and it is my go-to app everyday. I really wish they would update for the iPhone X, and fix the watch app. Unfortunately, the watch app is mostly useless, as it just flickers random temperatures and is very limited with information. Hoping they develop it look similar to the WU watch app.
Reliable forecasting, good radar 5/5
This app provides reliable weather information
The best 5/5
Add Free 5/5
By Kan and Pat
I’m one that also thinks the Storm App is awesome especially without the adds.
I downloaded the Weather Underground: Forecast app, logged into it and paid for the add free service using the same login I use for the Storm app.
After paying for the add free service in the Weather Underground: Forcast app, I logged back into the Storm app and all the adds were gone.
I think this might be a work around since they are both from Weather Underground.
I’m now enjoying add free weather from the Storm app again.
STILL The best! 5/5
I've tried MANY weather apps, but this one is comprehensive and accurate WHEN you select composite as the source for your locations. Simply the best!
Was my favorite. Now, not so much. 2/5
I teach a weather course every year, and loved this app, and recommended it to students. I paid for the ad-free version.
But now I can’t - they eliminated that option. I find myself just increasingly using the NWS sites, and this app less and less. I would pay twice what they originally charged if the app was ad-free.
Was a 100% product; now an 80% product 4/5
Because now 20% of the valuable screen real estate is cluttered with advertising garbage.
I had paid for the ad-free version (now unavailable), and am now looking for a replacement for this once-excellent app.
Bring back ad free 1/5
I paid you for no ads. Now you won’t get any of my money. Shameful direction to take in a world already full of nonsense ads. Your company really needs to listen to the [once] die hard faithful subscribers.
Still Some Bugs 4/5
Satellite has been super buggy for me lately. I usually just get a big gray box over most of the area for 75% of the frames if I run the past animation. Also, about ¼ of the time, I don’t get any radar/satellite unless I use the past animation.
Would be nice to have a single switch to enable/disable all Watch/Warning layers so I can Quickpin them as a single layer.
Bad temps 1/5
The temperature and the chill factor and wind are rarely correct
Accurate but RADAR map doesn’t work 3/5
I have found this to be most accurate forecaster of my weather in my area but recently the RADAR map has stopped working and it appears that they aren’t releasing updates anymore. Even more unfortunate is that WU sends you to Storm to view the future cast of the RADAR map and it doesn’t show anything on the map.
Was a Great App 1/5
This was a super app for those who need good weather forecasts and observations. BUT they ruined it by 1) dropping the membership which removed ads and 2) discontinuing the marine weather feature.
Now it’s annoying.
Something has gone wrong.... 3/5
This was by far my favorite weather app...I got a new phone and now it will not show me any rain in my area or anywhere. It will only show me 5 hour. When I click on 1 hour, all rain and updates go away.
Most amazing weather app EVER! 5/5
I’ve tried several, and this is the only weather app I ever use. Everything you need to know one concise place. I especially love the short range forecast graphs, complete with snow accumulation totals. I live in Syracuse, NY, and weather awareness is crucial in the Winter. (Good to know we’re going to get 8 inches of snow tomorrow.). Kudos again to Weather Underground.
