Was great, now slow to load 1/5
By WD IDAHO
This was my go to for instant weather in my area but now it’s slow to load. The temperatures loaded fast but everything else is blank for so long I give up waiting and go to my back up weather app. When I scroll down to see more stats it crashes every time. Perhaps it they got rid of all the non local weather nonsense it would help
There was a problem connecting 1/5
By Honolulu Howie
Every. Single. Time.
But those banner ads sure pop right up.
It's great when it eventually works...
Great When it Worked 1/5
Over time, perhaps since iOS 11, the app would occasionally open but fail to populate with data. Recently, it has become a daily ritual to shut down and restart the iPad to get it to populate. Now, that’s not even working. It is now necessary to delete and reinstall the app, you know, the universal fix, to get it to work. Are we expected to do that every day? C’mon Wunderground, fix the app.
By the way, like the app, that Support link goes nowhere.
Great UI for weather geeks, but often can’t reach their servers 1/5
What use is a weather app if it stays blank and continually says “there was a problem connecting,” even when in the presence of rock-solid WiFi? The problem has been going on for over a year.
Either their servers aren’t up to the task, or the app needs an architectural overhaul. I’ve been using WU for years, but I’m done with these constant reliability issues.
These are the most reliable forecasts I have found
Ads still show even after paying 1/5
Ads continue to show on ipad after signing in to account. The ads are gone on phone, but can’t get them to go away on ipad.
My Favorite Weather Site 4/5
By leakey sandman
I’ve been depending on WU for more than 20 years. However, lately it is nearly impossible to load on my I-phone. Something is wrong. When it’s working it’s the best!!
WU is Jumping the Shark 4/5
By Sailin' Shoes
Update, Sep 2015:
Back to 4 stars. WU fixed a number of bugs and the speed is a bit faster. Still miss that icon badge.
Update, April 2015:
Dropped to 3 stars. I'm ok with the v5 interface. The forecast graph has gotten better with it's precipitation inheritance from the v4 widget. But here's where WU losses another star: Still no temperature icon badge, the new notification widget is unreliable for current conditions, and the radar preview window is clogged with personal weather station data to where the actual radar is nearly impossible to see.
Question to WU: Who is gathering Voice of Customer?
Update, Feb 2015:
Dropped to 4 stars. I sent an enhancement request for an icon badge for current temp. Their response was "no plans to add". Wait a second, this is a weather app. Why would a developer of a weather app not have plans to provide the current temperature in an icon badge?
This is the first and only app that I subscribe to. At $2 a year to remove ads, it's a great deal. I discovered recently that Intellicast get's it's data from WU. So I decided to go straight to the source. Clean and intuitive interface makes this one of my top shelf apps.
A word of warning: Be wary of PWS (personal weather stations) when setting your custom location. Not all PWS's have accurate data. Chose a local airport or NWS station for best results.
Worst Weather App 1/5
I have been more than patient with this app for more than a year. Every time an update comes out for a bug fix, I’m excited because the app has some very good stuff on it. However, most of the time it never loads, and says “retry” all the time. I’m on WiFi as well, so it’s not the connection. When it does load up, many times the radar is still 1/2 hour behind. Pretty frustrating when you have some crazy weather coming your way and you can’t rely on it. There are better apps out there.
Great Weather Reports 5/5
Accurate Weather with detailed information
Comprehensive App 5/5
As far as weather apps go, I found this to be the most comprehensive with many added details easily displayed in one place. Kudos to the designers.
Not what it used to be 1/5
I have not been able to find a satisfactory replacement for the weather underground storm app. It was quick loading, easy to save and switch between several saved locations, and easily customizable. The current app is none of these.
Ratings & Reviews 3/5
Pros - good info. Cons - I have to hit the apps button more than one time to get it to display.
App is very accurate most of the time.
The best weather app I have ever seen 5/5
The information is presented simply and is easy to quickly process without dumbing it down to the point of uselessness like the apps that come pre downloaded on iPhones. Greater detail and a great weather map with several overlay options are only a tap off of the home page.
Good content lots of bugs 2/5
App has a lot of very useful information and is designed well. However, it frequently crashes and gets stuck on the loading wheel. I have great internet and 4g LTE with Verizon and rarely does that happen with other apps. Good content. Needs the bugs to be ironed out.
Big circle on temps..!!! 2/5
THE APP WON't OPEN...
I have reloaded it many times...
Take of those big circle around temps..!!!
They cover the maps..!!!
Put it back the way before where bolder temp is just there..
We do not need those BIG CIRCLES AROUND TEMPS..!!!
This used to be the ONLY APP I USE..
But can’t see the SATELLITE PICTURES WELL ANYMORE..
They BLINK IN AND OUT..
Consistently the best 5/5
By Vox Mopar
Consistently the best and the most accurate weather app that I’ve used. The local weather stations and quick updates during the day make it very useful.
Had to remove 2/5
By Outdoor gear
When I first found this app a few years ago I really liked it. A few months later it had an update. It became ordinary... now it does not stay synced up with Apple Watch. Just a pain
Great App! 5/5
Everything in one app and super easy to see, flows very well. Great for the aviator too!
JUST LIKE THE WEATHER CHANNEL, THIS APP STINKS! 1/5
This app is just like the place that spawned it, The Weather Channel! It’s inaccurate, quirky and undependable. I mainly use it to see how much daylight is figured for each day. Ten-day forecasts? Forget it! More like ten-day guessing. I don’t need this app for that, I can do that, myself. Storm tracking? Another dud! Just like mother TWC. I can read “the models” myself, without all the hype and carefully selected adjectives! This app frequently freezes my cell phone, especially when checking the silly “radar” display. I get alerts that aren’t there. And, when they are there, they’re just copies of the Weather Bureau statements. Frequently, the app can’t find my location. Commonly, I get messages that the app couldn’t update my location. When I compare the info in this app to the source (The Weather Channel), they almost never agree! You want accurate weather information? Go find yourself a real weather app.
Lo mejor 5/5
It plays music now?! 1/5
Loved the radar, sunset/risen, forecasts and just about every feature of this app until this morning when it began playing music when I opened to app?! I closed all apps and tried again just to double check that my ears weren’t deceiving me. I had my phone on silent yet the volume was up so I had to listen to the horrible midi music of a pop up ad from 1998. Why is there music now on this weather app? If you’re trying to push me into buying the premium version this is not the way to do it! Byeeee ✌️
Not reliable anymore. 2/5
When I first was introduced to this, it was far better than any weather app I had before. This was about 5-6 years ago.
This year it took a turn, by telling me that days were going to be 191 with a low of 40.
Mind you I live in Massachusetts in February.
Telling me when show was coming but nothing showed up on the radar. This went on for weeks. So I now went back to weather bug.
Loved the app BUT Now!?!? 2/5
The app is unreliable. Takes forever to load. Have to hit retry ALOT! Had been my go to weather app but now just frustrating to use. Works some times but not reliable and quick.
Buggy to worthless 1/5
The background often shows up without any info- just the template where it should be-like a thermometer without the mercury.
Service outages and buggy app 2/5
By Robert Walsh
Used to be a great app but not I’m seeing frequent failures to connect to the service and intermittent odd behavior on launch (completely blank screen but swiping around fixes it). Reported the launch behavior but never heard back. Time to cancel my paid account and try out Carrot Weather, I guess (added bonus: their TOS isn’t privacy garbage).
Love local stations 5/5
Best thing is that you can find local weather station info for an area you want.
What’s going on! 2/5
This use to be thee best weather app out there .. but it has gone below average... what is up with the front layer never changing.. can’t recommend no more
Excellent weather app 4/5
WU app and website is a great weather service, very informative and helpful. 4 stars is because it sometimes is slow to load.
Very good app 5/5
Great design and works well. Way better than the weather channel
By S&W Columbus
Great app for the weather. Great details for predicting restaurants forecast with the weather.
Not impressed 1/5
By Lee Don
Slow to load or won’t load..Not accurate muchof the time. I really wanted to like this app but can't find enough positive.
I moved from the Weather Channel app and will go back.
“ THE TEMPERATURE IS WHAT!!! “ 3/5
I love the app layout but have noticed on many occasions the stated temperature in my location of Davison MI is listed as much as 10 degrees warmer than it actually is according to my instruments and other apps like Dark Sky and the Weather Channel. Would consider a paid subscription if it wasn’t for the inconsistency.
Can’t use 1/5
Paid for the ad free version, but I’m unable to log in w the credentials and can’t find customer support. Wasted my money
What Just Happened?? 2/5
My weather is consistently not coming up and the app says there’s a problem loading. Same issue in my wife’s phone. Please fix this. I have no trouble loading any of my other weather apps.
Annoying little glitch 3/5
Mostly I like this since I don’t just rely on this for weather reports. I travel frequently between to areas and this can be useful.
My criticism ( and there may be a reason I’m unaware of) is that it flip flops away from the PWS I’ve chosen. I want the one closest to my house, less than three blocks away, for constancy. It’ s not for a scientific reason so it’s not critical, but annoying.
The widget needs work. It falsely says thunderstorms ending at 1:15. Currently it is clear and 25 degrees with no thunderstorms.
Otherwise, I like this app.
Miss the older version 2/5
This is so different from the underground I used a few years ago! Can’t find my way around. Used to have pictures from all over, live cams, etc. really don’t like this one.
In My Hood 5/5
By Ms Wilma
Only been using the app for about a week and so far it’s been accurate to my exact location since there is a station in my neighborhood.
Great weather app! 5/5
By SF keeper user
Great weather app!
Every time I open the app 1/5
At the bottom says "there was a problem connecting". Every single time.
Fronts layer broken for months 3/5
By Annoyed in South Florida
Love Weather Underground. Please fix the fronts layer. It has been broken for more than a year. Works well in a browser, but not in the app. Difficult to look ahead without that feature. No other apps seem to offer that layer.
Best weather app 5/5
Temps in neighboring towns can vary 5-10 degrees from my location due to elevation, and love how this app gives temp and forecast just for my location. Find the temp and forecast to be very accurate. And appreciate all the information app provides. I have not experienced any problems with ads. Don’t even notice they’re there.
What happened? 1/5
This was the perfect weather app until approximately 8 weeks ago. Now it won’t load. It takes 3 or 4 tries to load. I’ve uninstalled several times to no avail. Basically worthless to me at this point.
Hard to see 2/5
By upgraded iOS
The latest version for Apple XS is very hard to use. Poor contrast, smaller font size, color fonts and charts where not needed. Users visit this app for information, not eye candy.
Good when I got it a few years ago, now... 2/5
Not so good. Twice now my app shows my local temperature as 90 degrees, in AR in January, and again in Springfield, MO, In March. No credibility at all anymore.
Rob m 3/5
Are used to really like this weather Channel when it had pictures that was the fun part of this app. It is very reliable on the weather conditions in my area and I brag all the time about this app. But unfortunately it tends to run very slow with or without Wi-FiAnd I have the latest iPhone and iPad and home computer and for speed I recently moved to the weather for iPhones because they are quicker and the same reliability with a really crappy radar system
