Miss the old version 3/5
The old version was so much easier to navigate. Granted it’s nice to be able to see radar and what not, but that should come second to seeing the daily or 5 day forecast in an easy to read format.
Just when it seems to work then it doesn’t 2/5
I really, really enjoyed the previous Storm app and it was accurate!! I could turn on the app and instantly knew the weather and loved how everything worked together. This app is not an improvement. It doesn’t always work. For instance, for a while now the hour setting either produces nothing or when it does work I doesn’t display the actual day just hours and I don’t know where it fits in the current day. Also, not sure why but it has rarely been actually accurate for rain forecasts. It has said chance of rain 20% and we’ve had tons of rain that day and then it would give us the thunderstorm warnings like NOAA after we were having this bad weather. It just didn’t give accurate reading before the fact. I guess I am very disappointed in they new app, especially that I had to give up my old one.
Best radar app. 5/5
This app provides a wide view so the user can see what’s coming.
New Storm not as good as old Storm 2/5
Well the Weather Channel has now ruined a perfectly good app. Since they “remodeled” the Storm app into the new “Storm Radar” app it’s just not very good anymore. The layout is odd and not very intuitive, plus they changed one of the best things on Storm, the wind speed graphics. It was real easy to see the wind movement with many wind speed arrows, but now it is the occasional arrow and no movement, just a direction. No where near as useful. The radar is ok, but when you zoom in sometimes the rain/snow that was there disappears! Something is wrong there. The current weather info seems to be lacking a measure of precipitation in the last 24 hours, something that is pretty basic for weather information. After using this for several months (I would switch to another app, but they are all bad!), I’ve found it pretty flakey. Quite often the app just quits for no reason. Other times I try to move the map area and it takes 10-15 seconds for it to respond. I also do not like the radar to go into animation mode when I open the app and have configured it to not do that ... but it still does occasionally. This is all pretty sad given all the time they have had to work on this.
Better start over 1/5
Previous major version of this app was very reliable and trustworthy...not so anymore. App does not open to current location...app continually crashes....poor layer control... looking now at finding a replacement...add to this the app crashes anytime I attempt to do time lapse or check a different area larger than my back yard. My local TV app does a better job. Worst app I have ever used.
By Saturn special
Although the app has great graphics and could be very useful because of the information that it provides. It is never accurate and up to date it’s always behind. Example it is currently raining quite hard and the map shows that there is nothing at the moment. The closest rain is 100 miles away.
This is hilarious. Apple to investigate. 1/5
This app is for entertainment purpose only. There is no accuracy at all. I love reading the fake positive reviews. They are a good laugh. The positive reviews are all lies. Made by either clients of IBM or IBM employees. It’s not difficult to figure that out. Instead of deleting reviews, how about fix the app that has never functioned. Deleting reviews proves that you are lazy people and hide behind the truth. Many networks now have broadcasted stories about this fiasco. Especially, about the dishonesty of IBM and TWC. With use of the fake positive reviews and lack of communication to fix the app. Both IB M and TWC refused to comment. LOL! Apple is now being pressured to delete the app due to these media reports. Eventually karma will catch up with your greed, lack of common sense, no attention to detail, high levels of stupidity, lack of communication skills, and dishonesty. Looks like that has started and will only get worse. You brought this upon yourselves. NOW FIX THIS APP!
Storm review 3/5
I prefer the old app. This version has better radar coverage, but other easier accessible info is either combined with too much other data or is no longer available. I’d rather have the old app than so much projected info.
Bring back the old Storm app 1/5
This new Storm app is horrible! The graph for rain amount estimates in Day to hour doesn’t match. I want the time list and more info like the old Storm app had. I used that feature all the time in the old app plus the radar was better and I paid for a whole year that just reset when you dumped the old app so now I lost that money for a crap ad based app that’s too expensive to pay for. WeatherUnderground never should have sold out! Horrible!

By Green-eyed handsome man
App is awesome! Now a weather app that allows you to plan your day.
Great resource! 5/5
I love using this app. It's simple and easy with everything I need to know.
Slow and clunky 1/5
I just tested my bandwidth and I’m getting about 68 mbps down, yet the animated radar is still not loaded after 3 minutes. All of TWC’s apps seem extra slow lately. I plan to go back to the Storm app, which has better radar and much easier to use interface.
Update: it’s getting worse. Only reliable way to update info & radar is to force quit. Luckily, the app often crashes, which forces a reset. Very close to deleting this and trying a paid app.
Final update: been using MyRadar and it is everything this app is supposed to be but stable, fast and reliable. This app is no longer on my devices.
Original Storm much better 1/5
Hideous UI display in this version. Maps are either way to bright or way to dark...brutal visually. Original version’s default view had the snapshot weather info at the bottom so you could see current temp, hourly and daily info without doing anything. Now the default view just shows radar and nothing else. Original version I saw radar and useful info without tapping around multiple times. This version I have to tap a bunch of times to see the same info I saw immediately before. I never understand these developers and QA people that think these things are “better” for users. Time to do a another weather app!!!
Very disappointed with update! 1/5
After the new update I am very disappointed! This app doesn’t show rain when it’s pouring!

Works for me to monitor weather opportunities for golf
By US Amn
I wish I could give it 10 Stars!! VERY high resolution and far reaching prediction radar. Absolutely a 5 star rating
My first go to default weather app! 5/5
Storm radar 3/5
Good app, but slow to load data.
Not impressed with new app 1/5
I used the old storm app for several years and loved it. The new app however falls short of expectations. Radar rarely works properly and difficult to navigate. Deleted it today and found another app to try.
No lightning tracking. 2/5
I can choose the icon for lighting. But none shows when we’re in the middle of a severe storm. Dissatisfied.
Not worth it 1/5
By Bust my Buffers!
A complete disappointment.
Bring back the old app! 2/5
Thoroughly disappointed in this app. It is slow, hard to maneuver, doesn't have a home setting that I have found.
Weather data good but app is flaky 2/5
Keeps pushing notifications for locations I haven’t been near for weeks even after I deleted them.
Location selection is difficult.
I am glad I didn’t pay for this app!!! Bring back the old one. What a down grade! By the time I get the radar going, the tornado has ripped the roof off the house! Hate it, I will delete it because I don’t like to be aggravated every time I try to use it! I hope they still sell a weather, battery operated radio. Or maybe two tin cans and a string!
Not so good 1/5
By weather togo
App frequently crashes and/or locks up.
A substandard replacement for the original Storm App.
So useful. 5/5
Living in Florida storms blow up out of what seems like nowhere. I feel so much safer being able to access this current radar info. Thank you, thank you. This is a great app. I won’t be caught off guard.
Slow motion is still too fast.
Doesn’t show actual time. Generally runs 10-20 minutes behind so the storm has already hit before it shows.
Always 15 minutes behind and slow to update ! 1/5
By Ticket sales
App is horrid takes to long to update and is not up to the current minute always 15 minutes behind !
Storm Radar not as useful as Storm 2/5
I have tried to like this but I hate it. It’s glitchy. It’s slow to let ad and slow to update...sometimes 6 minutes to show nearby lightning strikes. Storm was fabulous during Hurricane Harvey. You could watch tracks and rotations. This one would be useless—the conditions are not updated in time to be useful. I also hate the way forecast is presented: as a pop-up over the map instead of a slide up table from the bottom. It glitches back to the map frequently when you try to swipe the day or hour profiles. I still haven’t figured out how to set different locations for travel. I had a go-to set in Storm that was easily accessible. This one seems to lack the option. I’ve tried but I’m good no to search for a better app now. The data is no longer findable and the map presentation is substandard for what is shown.
Overblown radar, ad platform 2/5
By Big Tall Chris
I’ve been living with this app for several months, and just continually feel dissatisfied with it. It makes storms look stronger than they are, and it gets in its own way of being a better app.
It seems it’s an ad platform first, then a hype machine.
Bring Back the Old Storm 1/5
This app is terrible compared to the Old Storm app. I don’t know what the weather channel is thinking. Terrible business decision.
Great App. Informative @ Best
Great App 5/5
Very precise! So easy to use and we always use it when we are planning trips or outside activities!
DON’T GET THIS APP!! 1/5
Easily the most INACCURATE weather app out there!! Have had this for several months and it is ALWAYS WRONG!! It just told me rain was starting in 10 minutes, yet there are no clouds anywhere (crystal clear day). Just plain ridiculous.
So tired of them ignoring us 1/5
This app is FAR, Far inferior to the original Storm app...swallow your pride and make your customers happy and bring back the Storm app. People would be so happy they would probably pay a dollar or two for the far superior original product. Absolutely ridiculous that the weather channel has ruined this outstanding program.
-Disgusted (& soon to be former) Customer
Can’t sign in 4/5
Months after I purchased the ad-free version, I was prompted to sign in with my password. Apparently I entered the wrong one and I’m getting all the ads now. The problem is that the app doesn’t have a link to sign in.
Great app 5/5
This app is really accurate and great to use when traveling.
Updated Review, ver2.0.0 2/5
Allowing an ad-free option is a step in the right direction, even if it is at a considerable markup from its predecessor. It still lacks a lock screen conditions widget, map layers for wind stream and fronts, and user-ordered favorites still randomly re-order themselves.
You have a very long way to go to match or exceed Storm. Change is ok, but very poor first impression. Need the earthquake notice. With family in CA and AK, it helps to see what’s going on. Good luck in catching up.
I really, really miss Intellicast 2/5
I loved Intellicast. I stayed with it as long as I could when Storm took it over. Storm was so-so. I dislike Storm Radar. It’s cumbersome and unintuitive when I just want to get a weather forecast for either my current location or a location I will be visiting. I’m hoping to find something better, or, better yet, I’m hoping that Intellicast will be reincarnated.
Storm RIP 1/5
The old Storm was far better... RIP
Big step backwards. Forecast accuracy poor at best. 1/5
Not near the app that Storm is. If Storm is ditched, I will find another app.
Best Weather App 5/5
By Mal the Awesome
This is the best weather app
Great app! 5/5
The pop up notifications about rain and lightning detection close to me is great! Navigation to all functions is very easy with lots of useful info.
No fronts depicted.....?..... 3/5

Can’t believe it!
Storms look like melted crayons 1/5
By S. Lock Holmes
Update 8: DO NOT DEPEND ON THIS APP FOR WEATHER!! Inaccurate, potentially dangerous misleading, delayed, flat out wrong alerts.
Update 7: The hacks, er sorry, developers must have went on a Bob Ross marathon binge. There are no mistakes, only happy little accidents. Not sure what little world these kooks are residing, but nobody should be able to drop a Storm wherever they want just because they had some leftover crimson red.
Update 6: Developers words of the day are ”Excellent” and “Accurate”. They are using both falsely and frequently in latest self reviews
Update 5: Radar Scope is the best near view weather product on the market. I have used it for over 8 years. Price is $10, less than a year of removing ads on this ruined app.
Update 4: developers need to spend more time fixing this horrible app and less time posting “Acceuate and Excellent” reviews.
Update 3: Looking ahead, watch when these hack developers decide to dismantle the Original Weather Underground Forecast app. They are going to totally destroy this wonderful companion app to Storm. Suggestions are Dark Sky, Radar Scope or even WTForecast.
UPDATE 2: Developers posting “rave reviews” about their failed app is the best comedy out there right now.
UPDATE: Looks like instructions from the boss said “Use the word “ACCURATE” often in your job dependent 5 star ratings”. Like putting lipstick on a pig.
Not sure what these “developers” are listening to except to charge more money to remove ads. Maybe ads are the reason for poor graphics, freezing screens, and complete lack of relevant information. A sucker is born every minute and this app want to help relieve you of your money with no payback. Too many other great options out there to get your weather. This isn’t one of them. Delete Storm Radar and end your pain and suffering.
Leaving this App 1/5
Have been trying to like this since the change. App is slow, doesn’t refresh to current data when using it multiple times through the day. This is unfortunate since the original was my only go-to weather app.
You raped this app Weather Channel. 1/5
What was once a very good app before you bought it, is now junk. You took the better parts of it and left it as junk. You should reimburse me for my original purchase. I’m deleting this app and your app.
