I usually don’t mind ads, but the one for Final Fantasy IV, where I have to play along, is a deal breaker.
Extremely intrusive ads 1/5
I couldn't get any maps or satellite images, but plenty of full screen ads. I'll try a bit more, but it will likely be deleted.
I love being able to see weather in Florida, where I live and also where family live in various parts of the U.S.!!!
Nothing but ads 1/5
Nothing but ads. There is an option to get the “ad-free” version but the ads are so intrusive in this app that I can’t even get a feel for the app, or whether it is worth purchasing. Might have bout it outright but this feels kind of scammy, and since they thought it was ok to waste my time...
Good info but—- 1/5
Wading through the commercials is a pain
There is to many commercial websites attached to your website.
NOAA is government organization and as a taxpayer I object to these commercial harassments. We should be able to check the wx without commercials.
Love it!!! 5/5
It has a whole new look and easier to use. 😃
Paid for ad feee version... still have ads 1/5
I paid $2.99 to not have ads but I still have ads
Not very useful 2/5
Provides satellite pictures and tropical storm locations, but thats about it. No true weather information like surface analysis, etc. Everything here can more easily be found on NOAA’s web site, just bookmark what you use.
Can’t get away from the adds! 1/5
Adds pop up all the time, and it is impossible to close them. When you hit the “x” to close them, you are taken to the add!!!
L O V E this app . . . 5/5
It is a safety item. Every time there is a weather or related watch, warning or whatever -- it shows up here. All of the information shows up. There are the complete NOAA texts, maps, references to addit'l info, if it exists, anything else relevant.
I think I have 20 (+/-) weather apps between the iPad and iPhone. They change from time to time, depending on the app development, seasons, etc. But this app hasn't been deleted yet.
The app is especially relevant during severe weather season here in the Midwest for tornadoes, hail, thunderstorms, flooding.
Simple and relevant. Good.
My world 5/5
This application made my life a bit more informative and accurate thank you
Frustrating ads 1/5
Every time you click a menu you get an ad that takes ages to give you the x to close it. This app used to get five stars in my opinion, now I’m going to uninstall it because the ads outweigh any usefulness of the app.
Ad all the time 1/5
Whatever you click all you will see is just ads.
Ads every click 1/5
This is terrible.
Worthless For California 1/5
This is just another dumbed down app that is completely worthless for anyone living on the west coast. It has one very very basic and highly pixelated satellite view of California that is stationary. No animation. And the newest slide was a day old! This app is junk and misleading. Apple should really take it off the App Store. It’s useless.
Now Is Useless so I Deleted It 1/5
By Mick Gator Fan
Used to be great with useful content. They started removing the most useful features a while ago. Now they've added pop-up ads when you select something. After you close the ad, you get one of the following errors:
-Request timed out;
-Site not found on server;
-Cannot download image.
So, I deleted the app. At least I could still do that.
Just wish they had a legend to explain colors etc

Great application for weather.
Can’t navigate format plus ads everywhere 1/5
Ads everywhere. Just wanted to check the weather but I couldn’t see a clear way to do that on this app. Is noaa behind this? They seem to reputable to put out a BS scam app like this..
Disengenuous - beware 1/5
I was astonished to find that the app does NOT follow its own settings...when you first set it up, you are given three choices as a setting:
(1) Never use your location
(2) Use your location only while using app
(3) Always use your location
Well, I chose (2), because I thought it only fair that an application might need your location info while you are using it, so that it runs more efficiently or better, etc.
However, after I left the application - stopping it, I noticed that I still have a banner running at the top of my screen which says,”NOAA Now is Actively Using Your Location.
I went to the website to the privacy information located at the bottom of the page, and was informed that the company that runs and oh AAA now does not knowingly pass your personal information on to anyone. That being said, if that is the case then why does it need to run in the background, even when you have left the application and closed it? Because what it is telling you is not actually what it does. For that reason I am uninstalling this application and sending a notice to the Better Business Bureau about the company’s misrepresentation of its product.
Caveat emptor - let the buyer beware (even though this application version it’s free)
NOAA Weather 5/5
By Evans Stargazer
A very useful and functional app.
Very nice Tool to be update with the weather
Great app shows good info
Very user unfriendly 2/5
If you are a meteorologist this might be easier to navigate because you would know what these things mean, but finding something like the predicted path and timetable is pretty tough
All the app does is ask you to rate it
Best source 5/5
By Gerard van Erp
All usefull and reliable info in one app !
Amazing and accurate 5/5
This was the most useful weather app during Hurricane Irma! Was able to advise loved ones and friends of her path and about when to expect it to start and finish.
By Vince 1964
What a great app
Followed the Hurricanes with this app
It was fantastic
Very disappointed 1/5
By Kevin Leary
This app conveyed much spam. Doubleclick too. I suspect spyware as well. Was happy to delete it.
Love it! 5/5
I always use the NOAA app. I use the satellite views often and go to it for severe weather updates. I trust NOAA more than the weather channel.
Storm preparedness 5/5
I tend to trust NOAA more than any other source of information, The different categories and easy to understand graphics are awesome!!
I like to see what's going on in Fl. and no one gets killed. 5/5
I like to see what's going on in Florida because my bothers are down there. I just wish everyone good luck and hope no one gets killed.
No hurricane watch or warning during a cat 4, lol 1/5
Right now, Irma, a cat 4 hurricane is taking direct aim at Floridas west coast. The ENTIRE STATE of FL is experiencing hurricane force winds, ant this app shows no hurricane watches or warnings.
Just the facts !!! 5/5
With this program you can check the weather any where in the world. It works almost instantaneously to give you either a written statement of the weather or you can look at the pretty pictures . Either way you get the latest update available for any where in the world.
Poor Layout 1/5
Terrible interface with no tutorials. A big letdown from NOAA. Really sad.......
By Avendaño, J.F.
Awesome app... very helpful...
NOAA Now 3/5
Great App and very informative. Worth 5 STARS.
Highly Recommended 4/5
It's a great informative and scientifically oriented medium of delivering weather updates.
Only quirk would be each time you leave the app it closes what you were last reading and you have to go back and find it. Possibly adding a little notification pop up on the side saying how many new posts have been added since the post you began reading.
Ads and layout worse 2/5
Ads you can't avoid and poor layout changes make the app less navigable and much more frustrating.
Información atmosférica completa 5/5
Excelente program y muy completo sobre datos atmosféricos y huracanes
NOAA hurricane tracker 4/5
By Dexter Theed
Quite good with LOTS of good info from storm prone areas. Excellent tracking and advisories.
NOAA is best 5/5
My go to app for any severe weather related info.
Best info out there! 5/5
The information you get from all your maps are incredible. I lived on the water and NOAA has never steered me wrong. Having this information is a life saver! God bless your pilots.
Accurate, easy to understand, current reports
Decent app 4/5
Seems to give good info and timelines.
Cheap app, don't use it. 1/5
Don't waste your time on this app
Weather app. 5/5
Best weather of all.
