Inaccurate rain predictions 1/5
This app is constantly changing its rain forecast, even on the same day and just hours away. Which makes it useless for planning outdoor activities. It's a big disappointment.
App Does not work 1/5
Can’t even sign in so I can only give one star.
By weather highlife
Always at 10 to 40% chance of rain. Even if it’s raining hard and dumps an inch of rain. Not as good as the old WU. I really miss the old app. Worked so much better.
Good, but radar is TERRIBLE 4/5
By Slutty Pumpking
Fix the radar or just get rid of it, everything else is great
Great when it’s working 1/5
[UPDATE 2019.07.17] :: UGH. Used to be a great app but it appears to have died on the vine with the link to weather.com Been a paid member since the early 2000s and send my weather station data for a few years. Attempts to fix the login problem lead you an endless dowhile loop related to finding the original device you purchased on and ... how the frick would I know? It was years ago! Dammit ... frustration galore.
When it’s working, sunshine and roses; when it’s not, winter and ice. There does not appear to be any way to get support. Had an annoying problem with my paid subscription still getting ads. After reinstalling several times, trying to get help was difficult to find and vague about when or if there’d be a reply. Eventually gave up and it miraculously started working a few days later.
I like it 5/5
I like it enough that I paid a few bucks to get rid of the ads. I enjoy the info it gives me.
Great app 5/5
This is an amazing app that I so much better than the normal app. It gives you everything that you need to know about the weather. I can know wheather hourly, daily, or whenever. The best thing is it is easy to understand, I highly recommend it.
Ruining a good thing? 4/5
UPDATE (5.12, 4 stars): Back for another look after Storm Radar went premium-only for basic features. This now allows users to reorganize or remove tiles, which reduces the amount of scrolling to get to the features you use most. The $1.99/year option to remove ads mostly works for me (I get occasional messages saying it expired but it continues to work). But there is still too much wasted space; especially on the iPad, there is more than enough empty white space in the main tile to add the entire contents of the Details tile.
ORIGINAL (3.0, 2 stars): The previous version of this was easily the best weather app. A single iPhone screen gave access to the current weather conditions, extended forecast, and local weather map -- clicking on the relevant parts of the screen would bring up hourly forecasts for each day in the extended forecast, a full-screen weather map, or more details about the current conditions, but the basics were all there on a single screen. Now they've decided to expand this main view to require 3 screens of scrolling to see the same information. If you enjoy scrolling through lots of unnecessary content while you're looking for the basics, this update might be for you.
Unreliable to the point of worthless 1/5
By sad it does work
Has a real problem staying on the closest PWS....the one at my house. It is much happier showing data from a PWS 15 miles away that seldom updates.
Required location sharing 1/5
By Micheal Schexnayder
Forcing your users to share their location just to use the app? No thank you. Deleted app from all my devices.
How do I get to Jeff mastersons replacement report on tropical storms? 4/5
Wunderground is the best weather report!
How do I get to his replacements report?
Increasingly Buggy 2/5
I have been a longtime user of this weather app, but the recent versions over the last year have had too many bugs. App constantly quits on me when I try to adjust setting on the map. This is the main reason I use this app, and it has been failing me. Very frustrated by its performance.
Best weather app 5/5
This is the only app to my knowledge that is based on data collected from VERY local amateur weather monitoring systems, sometimes just blocks away. Some have complained that the data is not always accurate. That is not my experience.
By yugome o
Best weather app I can find bc it can show fronts. But gets like your on a time limit and it’s slow to start. Often I’ve deleted it bc it was lock up. I’d get it back later
Don’t do the in app purchase to remove ads - full video ads & Zero response from support 1/5
By Sea Cap Hill Man
June 2019 Update: Apple needs to boot this app. First, they they take your money for ad free experience for a year, but don’t honor that. They won’t respond for help and refuses to refund purchase. Also app is now horribly inaccurate at least in Seattle. Half the time I open the app it is all blank or briefly displays an error message and then nothing. One last item, I hate the full screen video adds taking over my phone.
Weather Underground is no longer honoring those who upgrade to be ad-free for a year and support doesn’t respond. Otherwise I would give it 4 stars. I use to consider it 5 stars, but has been so problematic with it not loading or load wrong data (such as wrong city or temperatures 10 degrees high or low). It’s shocking how bad it’s gotten in 2018. It use to be so accurate and stable.
Former Intellicast user 2/5
By 556 Lineman
Intellicast was fantastic. Then this fiasco took over. Radar animation is terrible. Can’t view the 10 day with all the graphs such as temp, feels like temp, humidity, etc. At this point I just look out the window and call it good.
This app is terrible. The wundermap takes forever to load. It never cycles correctly and completely fouls up if you try to manipulate it at all. This app used to be so good and it seems to have gone completely to pot since the weather channel involved . It’s awful
Inaccurate and unreliable 1/5
This app is pretty worthless. Half the time the app fails to load. And most of the time the forecasts are completely wrong. Don’t waste your time.
Great app 4/5
I’ve relied on this app for years. The wunder map compiles a lot of useful data in an intuitive and easy to use interface. The heat index calculation seems to have gotten buggy recently. Right now, in my town the reading is:
Temperature 98 (feels like 179). I mean, it’s definitely hot, but that seems a tiny bit overblown. :)
Unhappy Long Time User 5/5
I LOVE your app and use it several times a day. BUT!!!! Your last up grade drives me nuts. Every time I open the app it tries to “find my location” even when I’ve turned the feature off. I have to keep putting my location to where I am.
Please, please put it back. Thank you.
Boycott the weather channel 1/5
By john cappiello
This app used to be wonderful.
Then the weather channel got a hold of it.
The app is slowly becoming non-functioning.
I say boycott all things weather channel until this is fixed.
Pretty sure it’s their fault that weather underground no longer functions properly.
The layers function on the map has not worked for over two months.
What is wrong? 2/5
By Jiang Fan
The APP is spilling out data so wrong lately that is rendering it unusable. We have had days in mid 80s but it is showing consistent mid 90s. What is going on?
I’ve used this app as my go to weather app for about a year now. It started out pretty good. I liked how I could get alerts when certain weather conditions were in the forecast. However this app has slowly gotten worse and worse. The app used to just shut down every once in a while, or it wouldn’t update properly. But now I can’t even open the app for more then 10 seconds before it shuts down.. don’t waist your time or money on this.
Whiskey Tango Foxtrot 2/5
Have zero clue what the deal is but I’ve noticed in the last couple months, my settings change or I have to reset them, same with my location. Which I had to do again today. The current weather is totally in accurate, temperatures are off by as much as 10 degrees. Last week through an entire thunderstorm it said “Clear” and today, during a decent fog, also says “Clear”. I normally use three weather apps to get a more accurate idea of what to expect and to be sure I get hazardous weather warnings, and I’m glad because this app has dropped that ball a few times. This used to be my go-to app that I recommended all the time. Not so much anymore and I sincerely apologize to those whom I have. I’m using The Weather Channel now as my main, with WeatherBug as a back up, and glad for it. The ONLY two things I like about this is it gives me the “Feels like”, which who knows if it’s truly accurate, and how many hours in the day because I keep track of that as a gardener. Would be willing to bet there’s an app for that, so then I’d be down to just one.
Great interface, terrible backend 2/5
I love the interface. But whatever servers are powering the app, they are horribly overworked. The app often just refuses to update with current information. And, the accuracy is very hit and miss. Tonight I was told that there was a chance of rain in two hours - while I was actively being rained on.
I wish they'd fix the background part, because I love everything about weather underground, when it works.
Used to be good 2/5
I have been using wunderground for years, watching it steadily deteriorate. For example, I would often go to it just for the radar picture but they’ve made it harder to get to and less useful when you do get there so now I use other apps. They keep changing it and every change seems to make it less user friendly.
No longer remembers last location 1/5
I have to reset the last location every time I open the app. This just started this week.
Reliable but hard to read 3/5
The font is very thin and difficult to read. I wish it was larger or that I could zoom in.
Showing it’s age 3/5
By upper plains fan
Have always loved the app however a year or better ago the Fronts layer quit working. I reported it several times but you all don’t seem to care about fixing it. For health reasons knowing where the fronts and pressure locations are is important to my family
Full of bugs 1/5
Stole from me 1/5
I paid the fee to have the adds removed, signed in and there’s still adds! I’ve tried everything and contacted developer and nothing no response, why would you do that to a loyal user that wanted to support them in exchange of no annoying adds?
The Best!! 5/5
They had me at heat index displayed right beside temperature on main page! 😍
“Feels like” a math error! 2/5
For the last couple of days, the app has been reporting an incorrect “Feels Like” temperature for my location. Currently 94 degrees, Feels like 150 degrees. Not just on my phone, but on my sisters phone while at the same location. (The Rogers Park neighborhood of Chicago, IL)
I suspect that this is fake news.
Great app gives you what you need and more has so much data and is very accurate
Fronts are usually not right 4/5
It seems like fronts are updated manually and not nearly as frequently as necessary.
Would be great if as good as the desktop version. 4/5
By joe b soup
I really like it — I do. But it switches me from my favorite stations to ones it apparently prefers. And data appears to get “stuck” as I can call up one station that has read 77 degrees for several weeks now. I know the data is actually good as it reports correctly on the desktop version. If they can fix these bugs I would pop it up to a five.
***** Update: The day after I wrote my two star (but still love it) review they must have rolled out a fix to one of my complaints (the data being”stuck”) so thank you so much and keep up the improvements!!! Thank you!!!
Wonderful app 5/5
I was comfortable with my Weather Channel app, but as Barry got closer Wunderground was recommended by a close friend because it updates much more often and is super accurate. The variety of information is amazing and so educational. Each time I open it I make sure to send my weather.
You can get a lot of info from it but you really have to search around for what you want. I dont think its very user friendly. I tried looking up a specific weather station and it would not search. I did finally get the name from a friend typed it in and I was able to get the station info.
Best app highly recommended ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 5/5
Best app highly recommend 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
So- so app 2/5
Been using this for a while now. Couple of things first is a lot of information in the small amount of space and initially it’s hard to decipher what’s what. Once you do get used to it it’s pretty good in estimating or looking at the high and low temp, a chance of precipitation, etc. looking at the entire week is nice.
As for the accuracy I think it leaves much to be desired in terms of temp., rain chance is good.... most of the time though it underestimates the high temperature anywhere by about 5 deg or so.. Whenever you tap on the temperature it always says tomorrow will be cooler than today… and it doesn’t change!
Still looking for the ultimate weather app! All in all it is serviceable with sone quirks.
still a good app but... 4/5
i have loved this app / website for years and have had no complaints.
i did switch from android back to ios recently - also deciding to go ahead and get the paid app to nix the ads.
not sure if it’s the diff b/t android and ios, or if the app is confused because it doesn’t have to load ads, but it often hangs and requires closing/reopening. even then it can seem to have trouble sorting itself out.
even at that i still give it 4 stars for all the info at your disposal
Simply the best wether app... 5/5
and I’m a forecast junkie who travels a lot.
Much better on iPad! 5/5
I really like the graph that shows a week at a glance...temperature & chance of precipitation. On iPad I can go back a couple days (in daily) or a couple hours, but it doesn’t work on Android
Yes. I like it. But there’s a new BUG! App icon TEMPERATURE BADGE now shows only the LOW not the CURRENT temperature. Please fix this.
Great when it doesn't immediately crash 2/5
Best weather app hands down. However it goes through periods where every time it opens it crashes. I try 4-5-6 times in a row and crash every time. Annoying.
Unable to delete unwanted city’s 1/5
By location disappointment
I’m disappointed in your information to delete unwanted city’s. After following your instructions (Blue star then yellow) to delete unwanted locations, for months I’ve been unable to remove any of them and add what I need ...
Disappointing to say the least !
Weather fanatic rates this the best 5/5
By the edge of praire
As a studied meteorologist just not practicing, I enjoy the precise and accurate updates minute by minute as needed.
I have relocated to the most unstable, area for weather changes I have ever lived and quite honestly it’s possible this site has saved my personal property and possibly myself or my animals from harm.
There is no better source for me.
Where’s the webcams?? 3/5
I used to love this app, and although it still has features I enjoy, I want the webcams back! Better yet, put live cams as a filter option on the map. I live in California where we don’t get much excitement when it comes to weather. Let us live vicariously through webcams during crazy thunderstorms, hurricanes, or snowstorms, etc...
