WU app works again! Yay! 5/5
The latest server side updated the WU team announced as a reply to my review (thanks!) seems to have completely rejuvenated the WU app into snappiness, fast loading of data and no more inability to locate me. Hooray! The app is usable again and that makes me very happy. My beloved weather app is back!!!
Freeze Warning 2/5
Tends to freeze up very often. Used to work great... has gone down on quality.
Much better 5/5
Problem of last couple of weeks seems to have been fixed. Excellent weather reports again.
Used to be THE goto weather app... 2/5
Sadly, it's gone downhill over the past year. Not sure if it's related to the Weather Channel buyout or not, but I used to pay annually for this. Between this and the Storm app going away, I'll be looking elsewhere...
Look Elsewhere 2/5
Once upon a time, this was a great app. But something changed and it has gone downhill. Locations can’t be locked in, everything is a personal weather station (PWS), and support is lacking (read their Help preface). The only thing going great is to pay them to avoid advertisements. Very sad about the downward slide of this once very good app.
Wish it worked better 2/5
More than not it doesn’t fully load or won’t refresh. It’s glitchy also, especially with the radar. Overall I like the app but I’m deleting it after a few years since it just doesn’t work when I need it
Use to be 5 stars... 1/5
I originally deducted 2 stars because you asked me to rate the app literally every time I opened it. The I renewed my ad free membership and you still gave me ads. I emailed support 2 weeks ago and received no reply. Congratulations! You just lost all your stars! You’re 10th in a long list of weather apps and sinking fast. What a shame.
No longer any good 1/5
Was once the best weather app in the store. After the last few updates nothing works. Won’t update in background, loading information takes forever. Even my Apple Watch app no longer updates in the background unless I open it. Very sad to see a once great application destroyed by unnecessary updates.
Good App But.... 4/5
Good App but latest update just downloaded May-24, 2018 stopped app from working. It no longer loads, just gets stuck on a blank screen. iPhone 6.
Update: Developer fixed the problem, so works well again! Thanks
New owners ruined this app 2/5
This used to be a great app. The Storm add on app was great too. New owners took features away from both. Now they are both merely average.
Update Fail 1/5
I have been forced to drop this app. Ever since the May changeover on the Storm app to being operated by the Weather Channel, I have had nothing but issues. The new Storm app is far inferior to the old and the WUnderground hardly ever loads.
These two have been my favorite apps by far and I sold a lot of friends/family on downloading them. Unfortunately, they have taken some major hits and have forced me to use other weather apps that work.
I would need the Storm app to fall back to its old layout and the WUnderground app to actually work consistently before I come back.
Not having subscribed to their upgraded version which I feel is very expensive, the constant pop in advertising makes the app frustrating and unusable. I am looking for instructions to delete it, which appears to be made difficult. I give this app a -5 out of 10.
IBM doesn’t give a two squirts 1/5
Your executive team has got to be the most irrational and irresponsible people on the planet. If they think it’s ok to ruin apps the majority of iPhone users use for weather info. IBM should be sued. This has gone far enough. Your apps are broken!!!! Release an update that makes the apps useable!!!!!!!! It is unbelievable that IBM thinks their weather apps work.
Better than Preloaded Weather App 5/5
Widgets and app more informative and the app is more customizable
You don’t have to give your location bc there are many preloaded locations within each zip code
Love dark theme, love widget for radar, love widget for temperature and precip %
Ads don’t really get in the way, didn’t even notice until Iooked around
Another step backwards 1/5
By 5 steps backward
I used to love Weather Underground. Used it for many many years. Now more and more adds another things have been added. I can’t even get it to load very well. The ads load first...and slowly. Weather Channel has ruined Weather Underground. I need to find a new app.
Delete and install again 4/5
By Mike Hoopes
I’ve been using this app since its inception, and the site for years before that. The one thing I’d like to see is the incorporation of historical data, such as is available on the site.
I was recently having major issues with the app (slow loading, no forecast). Deleting and re-installing seems to have solved it. Unfortunately, my favorites were not saved.
Horrible now 1/5
Been paying for over 5 years and now after it deducted money for my membership it has ads on it and it can’t display weather. ONLY ADS LOAD
Used to love now it doesn’t work 1/5
As everyone has mentioned the app is failing to load fully and is no longer useable to get a full weather forecast. Very disappointed since this used to be my favorite weather app.
Mediocre at Best 1/5
I was all about the Storm app when you could pay to have the apps go away. Now we’ve been forced into this app. At first, I was very happy after getting used to it, and I’ve really enjoyed the use of the 10day forecast with the graphs to show wind speed and rain forecasting. However, as many people have stated before me, loading of this data is an issue. It takes more than a few swipes from the top to sync. I can’t say I’ll pay for another year without ads.
In regard to the radar: I was under the impression the Storm app would be integrated into this app, that that doesn’t appear to be the case. There is some moisture that is constantly in place above my town, that almost looks like radar noise. It’s not actual moisture from the looks of other apps. This noise was not visible in the Storm app.
I’ll be happy if the noticeable lag went away upon syncing with the Wunderground servers, and if we could get the functionality of the Storm app in this app.
Don’t bother 1/5
And for sure don’t pay for no ads. Doesn’t load most of the time. What app are all of you going to? So disappointing as I’ve used this for years. No responses to email, either.
Update killed this app.... 1/5
Seldom loads and if it does load only around 1/2 the info shows up and as others have noted it has no problem loading the ads....sad as it was my go to weather app.....no longer
I USED to love this app 2/5
I’ve had this app for years and could always count on it. For the past few weeks, it is constantly glitching and won’t show the daily, hourly information. I need to close out the app and then reopen in order for it to work. I’m moving on to something more consistent.
Data doesn’t come in 1/5
Not sure what’s going on, but this app is no longer usable. The data seems to disappear and it takes force closing the app to get it back, it quickly reverts back to not showing data however. I’m switching to another app. I have an iPhone X.
Great app when it works 2/5
This app has become so glitchy and buggy that it's next to useless.
What happened? 2/5
By Bugg 2013
Ditto to all the other recent reviews. I’ve used this for years, and it’s been my go to weather app. Right now, I have to switch to something less frustrating.
Used to be great 1/5
The app used to be great. Now, it’s down about 50% of the time even though I live within 2 miles of three reporting stations in Portland, Maine. Note to the developers: please take a good look at recent changes you have made – something has gone terribly wrong!
Iphone x not working 1/5
Been using for years but after upgrading from iphone 6 to iphone x, this app not working. It doesnt show the day/hour weather its just blank.
No good anymore 1/5
Annoying popup video ads there is NO way to turn off. App closes down on its own/crashes every time. No updates avail. I think they stopped support. Worthless now.
Less stability 1/5
The app worked great until 2 wks ago. Now it shows partial data for the weekly forecast, sometimes 2 days , sometimes not anything. The daily forecast and radar is often many hours old, as compared with the weather channel on television. I have reinstalled it twice with no improvement.
Data is the best but app is awful 1/5
There’s no arguing that WU has the most accurate forecasts of the major weather sources, but the app could use serious work. For the last few years it seems like every update fixes some bugs and introduces new ones - one of the most annoying and persistent being the widget displaying inaccurate text information when using the “follow” setting.
Please just finally make this a usable app.
Used to Be Good 1/5
This app has gone down hill. At one point it was one of the best weather apps available, then they implemented the pop up ads and now that those are gone, the app simply fails to load properly 9 out of 10 times. I will be deleting it.
Lately the widget and different areas within the app aren’t populating. For example highs and lows, hourly, etc.
Rarely Works Now 2/5
One has to fiddle with too much to get the data chart to load. Shame as it used to be a great app.
Crashes all the time 1/5
Used to love this weather app, used it exclusively. Now it doesn’t load regularly and is glitchy
Terrible app now days. Don’t bother with it. Don’t trust it. It won’t even load anymore. Since has been deleted.
Great app 5/5
Awesome interface, super info and the weather discussion is in plain English vs NOAA
Keep up the good work
From Hero to Zero 1/5
The app use to kill it. Great forecast and great user interface. But now it’s nothing but issues:
1. Load times are incredibly slow
2. As of the last 2 weeks the forecast doesn’t load about 50% of the time
3. Radar is incredibly slow l and the playback feature is glitchy
Too buggy to be reliable 2/5
Used to be my only Wx app, but have to make it second tier if it only loads half the time.
Radar is jittery and unreliable. App data fails to load about 50% of the time (although the ads load without issue). Ever since the Storm app was discontinued I have yet to find a useful all-in-one app that gives both simple and advanced info. This still isn't it.
No longer works 1/5
As many other recent reviewers state, this app is no longer usable. It rarely loads the data anymore.
Was a great app, over last few months it never loads 1/5
Wanted to hang on since it was a great Wx app but now it rarely loads the data I need for simple forecasts....if it’s a compatibility issue with Apple’s continual forced IOS update then I hope they get on top of it. In the meantime I need to find replacement
Updated review 1/5
This used to be THE go to Weather app. WU was the premiere weather App on the market. There was nobody that could come close to offering the quality and accuracy of weather underground but recently there have been changes to the app and it’s performance that make it nearly useless.
They forked the app a few years ago which was frustrating but Storm became my go to app. There really was no equal to its functionality on the market. But they recently sold it (or gave it away), and the app that took over for it is garbage. Around this time, this app began to suffer greatly.
I have high hopes that weather underground can pull it together; I’d even be interested in a paid premium version that brought back the original performance of the app in addition to the functionality they giveaway with Storm. Fingers crossed this isn’t the end weather underground.
No longer works 1/5
By Nomore USAToday
The last update seems to have broken something. Almost unusable.
Recent bugs and slow loads 3/5
Historically my absolute favorite app! Great summary view and custom settings. However, recent update has been horrible and information doesn’t load or app crashes. So disappointed I have to find a new weather app after YEARS or loving this one :(
Rapid decline 1/5
Wunderground WAS an excellent app. It was accurate, streamlined, and though ads were present they were unobtrusive and didn’t slow things down. Since the new release the daily/hourly won’t load at all! I can’t see anything except the current temp. I can’t continue to use an app that doesn’t work! Please remedy this situation and bring back the app I love.
App works! 5/5
This app rocks the house like Tim Tebow!
Good app, performance issues 3/5
I use this Weather app the most. It’s not always the most accurate, but what weather forecast is. Love the amount of details provided. My challenge with it however is it often doesn’t open correctly. Ill see the current temperature but all other data doesn’t load. I’m frequently closing and reopening, which sometimes works but not always. It happens frequently enough that it just becomes frustrating and I go to other sources. Hopefully this is something they can improve.
What happened? 1/5
This app used to be great but now is awful. It never loads and I can’t get any information. Please bring the old app back!!
Was good, is now bad 1/5
This app used to be really good, now the ads load really fast and the weather details rarely load. I guess this app is cool if you don't care about weather and are looking for ads.
Good design, bad execution 2/5
The app can take a long time to load the daily or hourly forecast. It's also rare for reloading the app to actually reload the app. I like the look of the UI, but I wish the performance of this app was good.
