What happened, WU? 1/5
I used to love this app but since they made it show commercials every time you close the radar and then freezes on the commercial screen without option to exit (and once you finally force quit the app and reopen it- it’s STILL in commercial mode)... like I said, I USED to love this app and recommend it to friends and family- not so much anymore. Anyone have another weather app they enjoy? I’ve totally ditched this one and my battery thanks me for it.
Flawed Data 1/5
The app seems really flakey. Sometimes is says a station is not reporting but if I kill the app and restaRt it it works fine,
Also the rain reporting has a problem in that it frequently does not add the precipitation properly.
Notifications do not work. 1/5
Do not waste your money. I don’t emailed the developers weeks ago and no replies.
Very buggy and notification for severe weather that I have enabled haven’t worked in months.
And I paid for the yearly subscription.
Fail. Look elsewhere.
What happened? 1/5
I’d been using this app for a long time. It has a great user interface and is very accurate but all of a sudden, it began draining my battery. Quickly. I checked and it was using 50% of my battery at one point. Something must’ve happened in an update. I’ve since removed the app and my battery life is back to normal. If they fix this problem I’ll re-download the app.
Used To be ok. Not anymore. 1/5
The app used to work well. I used combined satellite and radar a lot, so I even bought the membership. They introduced many updates lately, that totally ruined functionality. Satellite does not work with radar together and you have to toggle between two. Definitely not something I would pay for. I guess they will be going out of business soon, which is unfortunate.
Annoying ads 1/5
It used to be a really good app until they messed it up with so many ads. Now it prompts a video for 30 seconds while I’m trying to check the weather. Who thought that was a good idea?
Full page ads 1/5
The full page ads are killing this app for me. I have started to avoid opening it in favor of the built in iOS weather app. I’ll have to move on from wunderground entirely if the full page ads keep up.
Love it! 5/5
I don't think this app deserves the bad reviews it gets here. I used to use WU Storm and loved it but sadly it has gone without updates for a long time and its reincarnation under the Weather Channel brand is quite horrible. WU Forecast however packs almost everything I liked about the original Storm in some form or another and it suits me very well. All I need to know is there in a glance. A few of the tiles are of no interest to me -to each his or her own- but it's simple to disable them.
I would love to see two things from the original Storm app:
- an option for composite data;
- a road conditions layer when viewing the map.
If they were to be incorporated I'd give it six stars.
Where’s the radio at?? 3/5
I love this app but I want the weather statement radio back where I hear what’s going on and what’s coming my way! Why do you not have this anymore please I want this back. I don’t want to have to find a diff app to get that special statement radio!!
Phone Overheat 2/5
By Dog man 1111
I have an iPhone 6 with current IOS. About three weeks ago my phone started to overheat at different times, at home on Wi-Fi and on the road using cellular. Started getting notice that Weather Underground audio was trying to play. Looked at iTunes reviews for the app and saw a few other people were having the same problem. Regretfully deleted app one week ago and my phone has not overheated since. Hope they will provide a fix because I really like the app.
What happened to Weather Underground? 1/5
It used to be a great app and website. It was a well-arranged collection of useful and easy to assess information, so, so much better than the Weather Channel, because it actually gave you information and not television personalities and drama. Not anymore. The site is overrun with lousy design and ads, the once consolidated info is now scattered everywhere on different pages to make you click through for more ad views; and the app crashes, doesn’t load data properly, stalls on the animated weather map and keeps forgetting preferences. The WunderMap was a great app, but they took that one away, too. I don’t think Weather Underground is going to make it much further. Plus, they’re making people who paid for ad-free versions watch ads again. Like many, it’s scrounging for more revenue at the expense of what made it good in the first place and the end users will walk away. Don’t bother with this company anymore.
What happened?! 1/5
Used to be a reliable app. Have had to delete and reinstall because it keeps freezing. Just deleted and will not download again - too bad because there was a lot I liked about WU.
You don't need my location when I'm not using the app 1/5
A great thing ruined 1/5
By run chris every day
Started with the full page ads that would pop up randomly and couldn’t be dismissed. Then came the bugs and battery draining. Not worth the hassle at this point. The weather reports don’t even seem accurate anymore.
It’s over 1/5
By Keith from Texas
I’ve been a long time weather underground app fan. Since it was only on the computer over 10 years ago. It ends today, the full page adds, the crashes, the weather seems quite inaccurate in the last year or two. It’s over.
New ads are infuriating 1/5
The new full page, disabling ads that make you to wait 10 seconds are terrible. I am uninstalling and going to another app. You lost another user here.
Good, except it loads super slowly 4/5
Good because it's very informative, but it takes 30s to load.
Locks up on map 1/5
By Downtime Dan
This latest update consistently locks on the map screen. Only way I can get out is to kill the app and restart.
Used to be Amazing 1/5
I loved this app. It’s so buggy and crashes and the UI elements often don’t load.
Only one star left to lose. 1/5
Can’t use the map at all without an ad freezing up my phone. Last week an inappropriate ad got stuck on my phone and my daughter almost saw it. It must be unnerving to work for weather underground, not knowing which day will be your last day at work.
New ads are terrible! 2/5
Free app is annoying: ads pop up every time I switch to various options. I’ve had this app pre-ads and it was great, but now I have to close it to get weather updates I want. It is extremely unproductive and fruitful.
Going downhill 1/5
This app used to be great, but it’s been turned into an aggressive sloth. It moves slow and you now have to deal with a constant barrage of garbage ads. Sometimes the whole screen is high jacked. You’re better off looking out your window to get the weather.
Not what it was! 2/5
By Uncle Big Guy
This has been the only weather app on my phone for years, I am deleting it and looking at others.
Ads are ruining the app 1/5
I’ve stopped using this app now that they have so many ads. Made the radar entirely useless.
Bring back the old app 1/5
This app is AWFUL! This used to be my favorite weather go to. Now I’m deleting it
Used to be great 1/5
I really hate full page ads that disable the experience until you view the commercial for a period of time. This has just started recently, but that isn’t the bottom line. You may be able to accept that if the app is fantastic. Well, it used to be. Many times I load the app and it is now missing complete information, stalls, crashes etc. It often has wildly conflicting data such as the summary says it will be a low of say 40 and a high of 60, yet when you go into hourly it shows it going down to 30 and a high of 45. Right now is a good example...says low of 57 today yet the hourly graph for the entire night last night going though tomorrow morning never drops below 67. What use is that?
Hopefully these guys will get back on Track. Ditch the full page must X out of ads is a must. Watching an ad that you have no interest or intent to buy is painful. Fix the data reliability.
Was great... 1/5
This app took a turn for the worse when they removed the option to remove ads. I get it, they're necessary sometimes, but I was just stuck in a 30 second add moving between screens. Want to be removed from my phone? Give me ads I can't remove. That's good you get removed from my phone.
Very poor wind ratings 3/5
I love the app’s temp and precipitation graphs and like the crowd report feature. One thing that is very often wrong, at least I my zip code 91384, is the wind and there is no way to input that it is off. Right now the app says winds are 3/0, which is laughable as I’m awake right now because of the gusts rattling my entire home. They have to be at least gusting 40-50mph. We get Santa Ana’s frequently, so I’m pretty used to gauging the speed. They need more input from wind sensors because they are way off.
Accurate Weather, But... 2/5
The weather forecasts are very accurate, which is great. But the obnoxious ads that slow down the app dramatically and make it hard to use are not. Especially since half of them are porn ads that contain actual porn. If I wanted to see that I would not go to a weather app, that's what pornhub is for.
Ads Are much More Annoying 1/5
This app used to be fantastic, but now the ads are absolutely awful and annoying. Please fix!
Ads lock up app making it annoying and unusable. 1/5
Used to be good. Now just annoying.
This app blows since it was updated. Not happy!!! Worse weather app now. Don't waste your time. Now I can’t delete it off my fn phone
Unclosable full screen ads 1/5
Used to be great.
Used to be great... now it’s horrible. 1/5
The invasion of the ads!
It’s unreliable, crashes often way too many ads it doesn’t update nor load at times.
Used to love it, now I had to delete it because of too many ads. 1/5
I used to love this app. The ads that appear when you go to close out the radar screen to go back to the forecast screen caused me to delete it. If the ads go, I’ll reinstall it, until then, I’ll use my local stations app.
Used to be a great apps, but now it overheats my iPhone X due to excessive background activity. Audio interface appears on the lock screen, and Battery tab confirms that WU is doing something in the background. Had to delete app to fix the problem.
What have you done? 1/5
This used to be my go to weather app. Now it doesn’t load data, loads it super slowly, or forces me to watch tons of video apps.
What Happened? 1/5
Used to be a decent app, but has dropped off so much. Just like the Weather Channel app, have to delete this one as well. Doesn’t load half the time, forecasts are inaccurate, and information is just plain wrong a lot.
Since Weather Channel bought them, figure they are trying to get rid of Wunderground by making it unusable, and then you get their app. I’ve already deleted Weather Channel app, so I will be going to another company. Dark Sky isn’t free, but it is a great app. I guess ultimately you get what you pay for, and when it is free, you get nothing.
Has devolved into buggy adware 2/5
This once was my favorite app but recently I have noticed things like close screen buttons that don’t work and when you try to animate satellite map it fails to do anything. No visible cloud maps, just IR. What happened??
Going Downhill Fast 2/5
This used to be the go-to app for weather. It isn’t anymore. I have my “home” location set to report my PWS (personal Weather Station), KCABUELL4. But the GPS doesn’t know where I am so it reports a PWS a mile away. It doesn’t even know where I am even when I tell it where I am! The reporting is acccurate as best I can tell, but that is dependent on the PWS equipment doing the reporting. My PWS is an Acurite 5-in-1 that is calibrated properly, but the data I submit to Weather Underground gets lost all the time. I realize that this is a free service, but it isn’t properly maintained or updated.
Overall Great App. 😀 5/5
By Dixieland Weather Service
This is by far the worst weather app. EVER!!
RadarScope and Accuweather are by far the best, just my opinion. Not even worth the time it takes to download this garbage. The weather channel has really dropped the ball on their apps. Get with Accuweather and get some pointers.
I loved Wunder map until recently. Now you get locked into some advertising I can’t get out of it. I am done with it and I’m sad to say that.
Why does this app crash often? 1/5
It's time for WU to re-evaluate its purpose and get the company back on track. It needs to find an ad company that won't crash it's app. They need to redesign the app so that it easier to find aircraft and marine weather. They should cut back on the weather studio. The other weather companies have that more than covered than you could ever do. Focus on education of the public how weather works. Make us weather experts. That will win back your fans.
I use this every day! 5/5
I don’t know about all of you doubters, but I use this app everyday and it provides me accurate information, great forecasts, and interesting features. It helps me know what to wear, what to look out for, and even how good the air is. The only problem I have Is the ads occasionally crash the app, but other than that, I rate this app 5 stars!
Pop-up Ads end it for me 1/5
This had been my go to weather app for years. Now, with the full screen, phone locking pop-up ads taking over my phone when I close the radar, I'm done with it! I understand ads, but these are so offensive it's ridiculous! Deleted!!
Rip off 1/5
I paid a few weeks ago to remove ads. That never happened.
I wrote to them, fix it or refund. They’ve never replied. I’ve sent my receipt to prove that I paid. No response. They must be trying to go out of business. I used to give them fives stars, for years.
I reside in a suburb of Chicago (60525). I have to wonder why so many users rate this app 5-star when I find it to be almost totally inaccurate. I find that on any given day, the forecast can change many times especially when precipitation is predicted. It can range from 20%, 60%, 40%, 20%, 60%, etc. during the day in question. The eight day forecasts are a joke. I thought the whole idea of a forecast is so one can make plans that are not impacted by weather. I wouldn't want to wash my car or ride a motorcycle if rain is predicted. Conversely, there are times when I would like to see rain and am happy to see the forecast predicting rain. Case in point; I just had a large area of my back yard sodded. I was a little concerned about rain during the installation of the sod as the forecast for this past weekend had rains coming in Sunday afternoon. This forecast first came out six days prior and showed varying degrees of precipitation on Sunday. Pretty much every time I checked the forecast for seven days prior to Sunday there was rain forecast for Sunday afternoon in various percentages. Bottom line there was absolutely no rain on Sunday at all! In fact on Sunday, the forecast was for 60% rain beginning at 2:45, 20% rain at 6:45, 40% rain at 9:15, etc. The forecast percentage kept changing every hour even though the skies were clear and looking at the weather radar, there was no storm clouds in sight. I'm much better off looking at the weather map and judging the pattern by myself. I can always look out the window and see what the weather looks like prior to leaving the house. Much better off than using this worthless service.
December 22, 2017 update - this mornings forecast called for scattered flurries on Sunday, December 24th. This afternoon, the forecast had changed to 60% snow. This evening, it’s at 80% snow for the day. Pretty radical “forecast” change over about 12-14 hours. Oh, let’s rate this service 4 stars.
February 13, 2018 update - Seven days ago, checked the forecast for 60525 on 2/15/18 ; no rain was predicted. Now, as we get closer to the date, the precipitation forecast changes almost on the hour from 50%, to 90%, to 80%, to 50%, to 60%, to 80%, etc. just another example of WU not be able to forecast the weather accurately. I still can’t figure out where all the five star ratings come from.
February 18, 2018 update - It never did rain on 2/15/18 as predicted for several days prior. For today, we have a predicted high of 44° and a predicted low of 37°. Interesting is the current temperature is shown as 19 degrees and my thermometer reads 26°. Also, we have a dense fog advisory but the sky is totally clear. Wate, let me rate this app 5 stars and call it the best ever!!!
Used to awesome , not anymore. 1/5
I’m not sure what happened, did they get bought out ? Tonight I’m officially looking for another weather app
Too much ad! 1/5
Too much Ad!
