Used this app for years over others but recently the app barely works and won’t load properly without refreshing several times. Ended up going back to the weather channel app which performs far better. Fixing the technical issues with this app would make it a great app.
I’ve given up on this app 1/5
It’s such a shame to watch an app that used to be the best, die such a slow painful death, but that’s exactly what has happened here. And it seems that it’s finally dead. I’m off to search for something that works.
There was a problem connecting... 1/5
App is completely useless if it can’t show any data.
Super buggy on iPhone X 3/5
Recently upgraded to an X and this app has not functioned since. Was working fine up until I upgraded (had a 7 before).
This used to be a good app but lately it’s been very glitchy an frequently will not display any data. Uninstalled in favor of something more reliable.
Won’t connect 2/5
About ready to delete this app. It won’t connect anymore, ever. When it used to work it was my go-to app. FIX IT!
Very good 5/5
By Roy Baty
Has all info on weather I could ask for.
Unreliable nuisance 1/5
WU used to work well. But the app has changed and is now a hassle to use. It frequently has problems loading because it is so bogged down with advertisements and other nonessential clutter.
Because it frequently wont load, it’s become unreliable. The next thing I’m going to do is delete this nuisance app and remove one more annoyance from my life!
“There was a problem connecting” 1/5
Loved this app, as it was the most accurate for the logest time, but it’s obvious that it’s been going downhill the past month or so. Forecasts used to go 10 days, now we’re lucky if we see 7, and even then, it consistently shows Day 7’s low temp to be 0°. So today’s high where I live would have shown a high of 73° and low of 0°. What? Today, the app refused to load all day - never got past the “There was a problem connecting” message. My husband and I both use this app on our phones, and when it loads, some days his forecast is completely different than mine, and we are looking at the same location!!! Just terrible.
Was an awesome app until they broke it 1/5
Updated: App briefly worked again for a while, but now has an error connecting on WiFi and cellular, even after a restart of the phone. Sadly, going to have to move on to a different app.
App no longer loads properly. Portrait mode opens only a blank white screen. Landscape mode winds up with half the screen chopped off. This was my favorite weather app until y'all broke it with this most recent update.
What happened? 1/5
It used to be a great app. Now it’s all buggy and has problems connecting me to the weather data. Not only that but I have noticed that in my area there’s some wildly incorrect data associated with my nearest weather stations! I do not want to hunt for a reliable station and I wish there was at least a way to see how recent the data associated with a station is.
Used to be so good and so useful. Now? For the last two days “Unable to connect retry” (to NWS)
App up to date. Restarted phone. Nothing.
Used to work 1/5
Used to work great, now it won’t load anything
Thank you weather channel for nothing 1/5
After the purchase from the weather channel this has been nothing but crap. Since last update no connection. Here we just wanted weather which this used to provide. Now. Nothing. Way to go. Another political piece of junk.
Doesn’t work most of the time 1/5
Still slow like molasses: might take a minute to load weather info, and in many cases it just plain fails to load - just shows blank screen... Looks like besides the app being buggy, the backend servers are also buggy, overloaded or just plain slow.
I wish Storm wasn’t dropped - it was the only decent weather app on the App Store. Always worked, easy to use, uncluttered UI. But no - Weather Underground had to take it over and then ditch it in favor of the buggy like Windows-95 Wunderground... :/
Developers keep responding with a canned response “we just released a fix” - I don’t know what they’re talking about: the last update was almost a month ago. It was slow before then, it is slow after the update - nothing has changed. About the only thing about this app that works all the time is the ads.
Problem connecting retry!!!!! 2/5
Used his app for years. Always loved it but lately I get this error constantly lately. I have tried to uninstall/reinstall the app twice. Is it just me or is it a bug?
Fading Star 1/5
Less and less reliable. Was great in 2017. Not lately.
Needs help 3/5
Not very intuitive. Navigating the app is awkward.
Wrong info or does not load 1/5
Not workin at all now.
something is broken since 2018 2/5
By Guy fleegmanzzz
When this app loads all the data, its the best around. But it only loads the data 50% of the time. It used to work flawlessly, but sometime in the early part of 2018, it got really flaky. Now most of the time, everything is blank and at the bottom it says “there was a problem connecting”.
Cannot connect 1/5
I love this app. I can't use it as of today. It just keeps telling me it can't connect.
Since bringing in the weather channel, this app has sucked BAD. No more NOAA weather radio ....
Great but needs more... 1/5
By DB Impressions Photography
And needs to work more consistently. Hasn't loaded correctly in several days.
“There was a problem connecting.” 1/5
“There was a problem connecting.”
“There was a problem connecting.”
[pull to refresh]
“There was a problem connecting.”
“There was a problem connecting.”
Ever since I updated this app it no longer connects. It will send me weather alerts which I can’t even view. Nothing will load in the app anymore.
I really liked this app for a long time. I paid to use it and it’s steadily become less and less reliable over time. The watch app has NEVER been reliable and now the app for iPhone and iPad will not load. I just wish I hadn’t wasted money to have the ads removed. Switching back to WeatherBug. Developers, I will not respond to an email about this. The app will not load. DO NOT CONTACT ME unless you’d like to issue a refund.
iOS 11.4 killed it 3/5
This app worked until I updated my iPhone to 11.4. Now, it will open but won’t connect.
Good app gone bad! 1/5
By Smudge 714
This app was once my favorite weather app but no more! Don’t bother paying for ad-free. You’ll still get ads. I don’t understand what happened but developers need to check these reviews and feedback.
Poor reporting 1/5
This used to be our favorite weather app until TWC bought it. Stations are down all the time. Forecasts are mostly off and we have been getting errors daily!
New UI 4/5
Works great! Giving it a 4 star now instead of the previous 3 star rating. Still needs a new UI though because it’s been time for one.
Loss of functionality! 3/5
By Another Moochie
This was the best weather app available.
They disabled storm which they transferred many useful features to. Now as of 12 hours ago you can no longer connect through the main app to any weather station. A reboot of the phone and app do not fix the problem.
It’s a pity as this was the best app for someone wanting more than a forecast for years.
I've been using this app through several versions and up to this one it was very reliable.
Loved it till last update 1/5
I have used and loved APP till the last update. Now it is slow. With the bonus of a always there error of “unable to connect” retry... Retry does nothing. Trying a different station does nothing.
Great app.... when it works 2/5
My husband and I both have this app on two different types of phones. We like it for the hour-by-hour forecasts. But it always is down or can’t connect, even when you looked at it and it was functioning 5 minutes ago. Such a pity!
Would be better without the politics. Not looking for opinions just the weather...
Seldom works - Very frustrating 2/5
By Honest Drunkard O'Malley
Piece of junk app. Great content when it works, which makes it frustrating when it doesn’t, which is most of the time.
RIP Wunderground 1/5
As of June 21, 2018, no data is loaded and the app is now unusable. Did The Weather Channel kill this app too?
My career relies exclusively on weather for I used WU exclusively (even was a paying member). But in the last year they changed both the app and website which makes using the site next to unbearable. I’ve now moved on to utilize other sites. How one can screw up a simple weather site is behind me, but WU has achieved it.
What happened?! - best to worst 1/5
Storm App used to be the greatest mobile app
Wundermap used to be the greatest online tool
With the loss of the storm app, the new Wunderground map is absolutely unusable
Extremely slow to load
Extremely clumsy to use
Quit loading anything for me 48 hours ago
Wunderground must be bleeding talent or getting used to that corporate life with the Weather Channel, the passion and quality is gone!! Worst user experience on the market now. Ugh
Favorite Weather App 5/5
Excellent app for viewing the temperature, humidity, forecast, and environmental info. I added the widget too so I can easily view the temp without opening the app. Thank you.
Weather radio 2/5
By Bethanny Anne
I wish still had the weather radio tile.
Not working well! 1/5
Half the time I go to open the app the weather data won’t load. If it does load, it’s slow. Wasn’t always this bad. Really gone downhill in the last month or so.
Over a decade of excellence! 5/5
Where do you live and what is the closet reporting station? If you live against a really big hill or in a valley or on the edge of a city or forest, there are micro climates and you should know how to adjust. When I first used Wunderground it was on a pc and a couple logos ago. Later when I spent many years in the remote desert it was accurate and came in quite handy. I would love to get a station and contribute. The app is great... the 10 day forecast on the browser, not so much, doesn't always load. But still the one!
I like this app. I like using Weather Underground to track severe weather. I also like seeing community input about local weather conditions. I have had iffy performance from this app. Hangs and crashes are very common. I also try to removed the ads from an in app purchase, but when I click to remove them the app ALWAYS crashes. Thus, I still have ads. :-/
Broken App 1/5
App worked very well until the latest update. Now it is hopelessly broken and won’t connect.
Mixed bag - Apple Watch is full featured but slow 3/5
I think it’s a very good general weather app, and on Apple Watch it is by far the best one I’ve tried - EXCEPT that it is often slow to load updated weather info. In the same time it takes to load I can take out my iPhone and check weather on three different apps.
Previously the ad free was $1.99 per year, suspiciously low. Now $10 per year more practical however user experience has become subpar in my opinion. Load times and need to reload pages to view missing data is frequent.
The intrusive ads and pop-up to try and make you subscribe have made this app go from the best to the worst. You can’t even get the subscription pop-up to close on iPhone X because the “no thanks” link is almost completely hidden. That means you’re stuck and can’t use the app unless you force it closed and try again.
Content great, app sometimes really sluggish 4/5
The forecasts are spot on and make up for the occasional poor performance. The app itself will sometimes act unresponsive while loading all the component bits and bobs, and sometimes i find I need to close and re-launch the app to see actual content, though that is rare.
Battery buster 1/5
Drains the iPhone battery very quickly. Once was looking up a forecast, set the phone down, came back 15 minutes later, app still running, phone was hot, and battery charge had gone from 90 down to 20.
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!!!
