Radar usually doesn’t load 3/5
Some aspects are very user friendly. Unfortunately MOST of the time the radar data does not load. Radar info is important so will have to move to another app.
Great App and Easy to use 5/5
By Mr. K52
A really good app to use on the move this specially when you need to pull the phone out of your pocket and take a quick look at this gives you all the day do you need within seconds. Great job all
Doesn’t always work and not always accurate.
Best weather forecast. 5/5
By Ika Noto
I love Accuweather! Since I discovered Accuweather I have told my family and friends how accurate Accuweather is and suggested they switch and get the Accuweather App. I love how it tells me when it’s going to rain and for how long and how it sends notification of severe upcoming weather. Thank you for your accurate reporting.
4$ equals no ads, no auto playing videos 4/5
smooth app with no clutter. i like it better than TWC/Weather Underground. I researched Accuweather and how they get their data. They run their own algorithms on NWS, NOAA, and additional public and private data. Since the government/NWS doesnt make apps, this is the best you can get to having NWS and NOAA as a direct, no frills app. Yeah they have some weird names for "Feels Like temp" as "Real Feel", but that just comes with them designing their own algorithm calculator
Accuweather is convenient, but its radar is very slow to appear and fragmented, as compared to the Weather Channel.
Nice app 5/5
By Kat's Sherlock
The best weather app. I always use here and away.
I am confounded by the high reviews!! Where I Live, South Florida, this app has been WRONG in weather predictions by 81%! (Compared to my other weather apps at 35, 41, and 53%). The funniest part is even when the weather has passed they are still wrong. Moving on.
Radar is slow 3/5
It takes a long time to load the radar on the app, if it even loads. But the rest of the app works well.
Decent app 3/5
App is okay for weather but when it comes to location the gps is all types of screwed up. Putting me in the town over from me/making up addresses. I can be dead center of a town and the app will have me in another township. Would be cool if this problem was fixed
It takes a long time for radar images to show up.
Very poor radar 1/5
It mostly doesn’t work. When the radar is working, it sure isn’t working very well. How this thing got a couple billion positive reviews is proof that one cannot rely on AppStore reviews.
The only weather app I trust 5/5
This app is almost always accurate, I can’t trust the weather app on iPhones anymore. This app takes local weather reports into account and makes the most educated predictions possible.
Easy and accurate 5/5
This website is so logically constructed that users can easily navigate choices.
Review of poor weather app 2/5
This app got worse with the latest update, during a thunderstorm I couldn’t get the radar to even update. I am using this on an IPad. I have the same app on my smart phone, works much better on it. Looking for another weather app for my IPad.
Love this app 5/5
By moon sunshi9
I think this app is 99% right on point!! We live right on the Bay & r on our yacht a lot or thinking of going somewhere on it & we use accu weather app a lot to decide if we should tk a trip or if we should postpone trip!! As a matter of fact I was just looking at next week accu W to see what day weather looks good so my brother can decide what day to come so we can pick the best day he should come . He has 1/2 drive 1 way. Anyways, we used accu weather app so we could pick a great day to lay n pool !! So thank you all for everyone that put this virtually flawless software program together and made it available to everyone!!! And also user friendly!!! Please keep this app available!!!!! It’s more than worth it to hv especially the accuracy is so perfect!!!

This app just republishes information from the government agency NOAA that we all pay for with our tax dollars. And they lobby to remove our access to NOAA data to force us to pay for it from Accuweather. Google it.
RADAR MAP THATS SHOWS STORMS 5/5
By ALLGOOD D
It’s pretty good I like a radar map that shows storms in the area and this is the best one I’ve seen so far so keep up the good work with showing storms approaching etc.
Be warned- rogue app 1/5
By D o n a l d
On my iPhone I can turn off background app refresh and not use the app for a week and it will use 2nd or 3rd most battery of all apps. I discovered today with me turning off its use of my cellular data, it still used about 30 mb of data on my cell plan in 2 days. This is a rogue app and should be pulled from the app store until fixed. Beware!
Difficult/confusing to navigate 2/5
I added a location and tried to get daily forecasts. No dice. Nor could I see how to navigate to the earlier pages. Very confusing, which, regardless of accuracy, makes it pretty useless for me.
great app but incorrect 1/5
this app says it is partly sunny outside and it is actually thunder storming... think i could do a better job telling people the weather myself. on the other hand, it is mostly accurate. especially the real feel is reliable and seems correct. for the most part, a great app however the current conditions do not update obviously fast enough. the radar says no rain while it is raining. i don’t understand this. it is accurate for the hourly and daily but not current conditions.
Great app 5/5
By Tippy Dor
Love this app, it’s very accurate.
I got this app for the weather notifications. I sent me a weather alert 20min after the thunder and lightning started with heavy HEAVY rain! It was a bummer.
Not always accurate 3/5
Says zero precipitation for next 120 minutes. Currently storming.
Incorrect Location 2/5
It consistently has my location wrong and won’t allow me to edit it
Irritating that it sets my location as the town over the mountain, even with my zip code being used. So dumb!
Love this app 5/5
Much better than the iPhone weather app and way more useful. Love the real feel hourly, use it everyday to plan outings.
Good but could be better 2/5
By seve weatherson
The app is better than any other free weather app out there. My only issue is that the radar never works on first few tries. One always needs to back out and go back in, or only use the future radar for it to work. I like to see the radar when a storm is coming through but can never get the radar running one the first few tries. I really don’t want to start using the Weather Channel app but if their radar works, I will have to.
Great weather app! 5/5
I have been a TWC app fan but I think I found weather nirvana with the Accuweather app. Bravo!
Ants predict weather better than this garbage.
Radar map 5/5
By radar map sadness
This is dreadful compared to the weather channel radar map. It doesn’t display nearly at all and when it does it runs by too fast and too intermittent.
Teresa Kay 5/5
By Teresa Kay3
Great app...but 4/5
This is a great weather app but the radar feature is worthless. It takes Forever to load, like up to 10 minutes sometimes even with a good connection. Would be nice if this could get fixed.
The Roofing guru 5/5

Radar Imagery doesn’t load 2/5
The app is fairly simple and intuitive to use but the biggest frustration is that the radar imagery won’t load many times. Sometimes it takes a very long time to load and other times it won’t load at all. This happens with a strong WiFi or LTE signal too. Just frustrating. I use other apps for radar and this app for basic daily forecasts. Not ideal.
way too slow loading the radar 1/5
I know I do not have the latest and greatest phone, mine is an iPhone 6s, but you would think that the radar would load a little bit faster than it does.
Even with this most recent update it still takes at least five minutes to load the radar.
If I’m trying to see a severe storm -it’s over by the time the radar pops it up there,
By ms turq
Takes too long for the radar to load. I’ve uninstalled and reinstalled and still have problems with radar loading.
Temp is way off 1/5
Temp was not correct. Maintained 86deg even after storm which dropped temp to 75!
Feel like the radar is off. And the dial that says rain in so many minutes never seems accurate.
It is good for an app 1/5
By 159sean ct
It is good for an app
The app is ok however the radar feature is not
Just watching a local tv station where the meteorologist was pointing out the radar showing a severe thunderstorm 5 miles from my house so I pulled up my app looked at present and future radar and it’s clear. I am now seeing dark clouds and hearing thunder. Also not sure if it’s me but I can’t seem to find current or any radar in motion. Very disappointed. Still looking for a good weather app!
Great app. 5/5
By Mrs Hortop
This weather app is really useful and user-friendly.
Corey bates 3/5
By Bath s
It’s a very good app
Feels like 3/5
The feels like is ALWAYS wrong. It takes way to long to update temps and weather conditions or if there’s any short of warnings or watches. The only reason I use it that I upgraded awhile ago.
Not very accurate 3/5
By lisa gggg
There have been so many times where I look outside and think.... wow I bet it’s going to rain. Then this accuweather app says it’s not going to rain until tomorrow. Next thing I know, it’s pouring and I check the app and it says it’s raining.
Other times the app has told me that it’s raining or been raining and there’s absolutely not a drop. I even mark it on their grid that it’s just cloudy but it still tells me that it’s going to keep raining for another hour. Meanwhile, dry as a bone here.
Map position placement 3/5
The App is very user friendly. Great up to minute updates. The reason for 3 not 5 is I can’t pinpoint locations on the Radar map.
Future radar?? 2/5
What happened to future radar? It doesn’t work in Europe at all!
P.S. I don’t know if it works in the US
Either way, please fix this it’s pretty annoying
Other than that great app!
It’s ok 3/5
Sometimes it isn’t the most accurate but I guess you get that with other weather apps as well. This one seemed to just be less accurate but it gave me an idea of what clothes to wear.
Lousy app no stars 1/5
Won’t hold image on map.
Too busy loading useless advertising.
