Great until series 4 watch 2/5
Loved this app until I got the series 4 watch... complication no longer an option on the watch. Please bring this back!! Also giving a low rating because it was very difficult to send this feedback to company.. ‘feedback’ only brought me to the FAQ but not prompting to send an email.
Can’t sign in 1/5
The app refuses to let me sign in to my account on iOS 12 on an iPhone XS Max. It says it has a problem connecting.
Great Intuitive Weather App! 3/5
Giving this app 3 stars as of 9/21/18. Just upgraded my phone to iOS 12, set up my phone like a brand new phone after installing iOS 12, reinstalled this app and it must not yet be optimized for iOS 12 as trying to run this app makes my phone extremely hot and drains battery really fast. I tried doing a fresh install 3 times with no luck.
I have an iPhone 6S.
Hopefully the devs are working on optimizing for iOS12 as its not working for me. Shame as this is my favorite weather app and I’m a paid subscriber.
Always wrong 1/5
When this app worked it was great, but that is such a small percentage of the time, that I'm deleting it and looking for something else. Most of the time when you launch it just shows the current temperature and a map of nothing. Maybe there are just too many moving pieces.
NWS Forecast option broken for months... 1/5
And this is just one of the obvious issues that has remained a problem for 6+ months.
* Resume app from background when weather map was open - crash within 5 seconds of resume
* Resume app from background and inset map does not update station temperatures (some do, some don't...) Sometimes the app will crash as it updates the map data. Sometimes the app will crash if you tap the map to open the full screen map while the map is updating
There are other problems I haven't bothered to characterize because when I do I get crashes so randomly that I can't figure out what might have caused them.
The only reason I keep giving this app a chance is because I have an ad-free account on the website and want to manage weather station data there.
I can’t get the airport weather stations anymore like I used to I can only get personal weather stations and that’s annoying
Formerly my favorite weather app 1/5
But it hasn’t worked for the last few weeks. It doesn’t load at all. So sad.
Weather Underground used to be my #1 go-to app for all things weather. Not anymore. I can’t even get any weather or forecast information to load. I’ve tried restarting my phone, deleting and reinstalling the app— still the same. I wish that this app was as amazing as it used to be. :(
NWS no longer works 1/5
Update 9/2018: now best forecast and NWS both give connection errors. I’m sad to see this app go.
This app was once the best. For the last year or so it’s been unreliable, slow, and buggy. A bummer.
App has been got it out over time and feature is turned off, it’s completely down right now, again. I suppose their name says it all once you take the word weather out, it truly is completely underground. Delete!
Great app 5/5
It has lots of features for each location if you scroll down, called tiles, which can be customized, and I enjoy building custom radar maps.
This app has been broken and error a lot lately!
When I found the city I wanted to check the weather, the app gave me 3 cities from 3 different countries, the problem is, when I select the city I want, nothing happens or it selected different city. Wow!
Many times, this app keeps saying “there’s a connection error”, reaaaallly?
No more love for this app, uninstalled!
The Weather Channel is ruining their best app 2/5
This was my go to weather app but it slowly being ruined by The Weather Channel. There have been several times the hourly section displays gibberish for the temps and the widget always has gibberish for temps. Guess it’s time to start looking for a replacement and not one from The Weather Channel. It wouldn’t surprise me if they weren’t sabotaging this app to try push people to their branded apps.
Unable to Sign in using my iOS app 1/5
I have a paid membership and am unable to sign in. I keep getting an err stating unable to connect. Waste of money!
Update broke the app 1/5
Yet another update: back to the white screen of death and unable to connect. Back to 1 star.
Further update: the app appears to be working now. Up to 3 stars from 1.
Update: the white screen is gone but now there is zero forecast information. It's just all blank and dashes.
Previous updates made the app slower and slower... this one broke it. It now takes a full 60 seconds upon opening to get anything other than a blank white screen. And... feedback/support links are broken.
Can’t Login 1/5
Add me to the list of people who can no longer sign into the app. My login works fine on the website, so it’s definitely a problem with the app. This started after upgrading to iOS 12. I even did a clean install and then re-downloaded the app. But, I still get the error when trying to log in.
"sorry there was a problem connecting" 1/5
I can't login to remove the ads.
No longer my favorite app 1/5
I keep getting a message that it can’t connect to the server. Been like this for a while. Please fix. App is worthless now.
Crashes every time you hit the location icon.
Used to be a great App 1/5
Seems to be down now all the time. Had weather stations connected to it that I could monitor 24/7/365 lately can’t rely on its forecasts or its information. Sad to see this getting gobbled up and turned into junk.
Quality is deteriorating 2/5
100% agree with Ricky’s review on aug. 21st. In addition to everything he said, the widget has been broken for months. I recommend switching to accuweather, which provides much of the same functionally, and actually supports their app.
What happened? 1/5
This used to be a great app. The best app in my opinion. Then one day it just stopped working. I got a blank screen. I tried to uninstall and then reinstall the app, but it didn’t even install and icon. I have to to the App Store and select open instead of accessing it through my home screen. What the heck happened to this once great app????
Does WU Even Care? 4/5
UPDATE 9/20/18: down to 4 stars. Same US Fronts showing for several weeks. Many complaints, still no fix.
UPDATE 3/28/18: WU has restored the app to its former glory. Bumped my rating back to 5 stars. Thanks, WU!
UPDATE 3/13/18: I’ve written two emails to customer support and this review, yet still nothing in reply. I’m done for good with WU.
The rating for this app has gone from 4.5 to 2.2 in the last 2 months and there hasn’t been a single reply from WU in any of the reviews I’ve seen. That should tell you something right there.
This ratings freefall coincided with the introduction of forced ads when closing the radar screen. I’ve read hundreds of complaints where people are pointing to the forced ads as their reason to give up on this app. Based on the lack of response it would appear that the parent company, The Weather Channel, is letting this app die a slow death. Perhaps to nudge people toward the TWC app.
I hope they fix the ad issue as I would come back to WU in a heartbeat if they did.
WHAT HAPPENED? 1/5
This app was great for a while and now it is filled w bugs. Latest is a blank white screen when opening the app and it never uploads any information. Previous to this the upload was slow because ads were much more important. Nice graphics when you get to use them, but like someone said about Weather Channel take over, it is good no more. And what is it with the Weather Channel and how they seem to think the entire world ranges from the US plains states to the eastern seaboard — it’s like no other weather is worth considering. I’ll be looking for a better app...
WU has given up 1/5
This was once a remarkable weather resource but unfortunately it has become a shell of its former self.
The uncorrected connection issues were the last straw for me.
Great weather app 1/5
By far the best weather app to use. Has lots of features keeps you informed of your local weather. A must have app if you have a weather station. Even if you don't have weather station select the closest station near you. Keep up the great work wunderground.
After 3 years use of this app it is no longer a functional app as it will no longer connect tried deleting an signing back in but that does not work either will not sign me in they must have me blocked from using the service. I have a weather station an it was useful when the app worked not anymore
App no longer loads 1/5
Welp I paid for the pro version when I got this app more than a year ago and was generally a happy user. Over the last few days the app no longer wants to load content when started, all I see is a white screen with WU logo which then disappears to show only an entirely white screen. I’ve tried force killing the app numerous times and waited on this screen for 30+ seconds and no luck, I think only twice it loaded content which showed what looked like onboarding screens telling me I had turned off personalized ads and that I should turn them on for a better experience even though I specifically paid for Pro to avoid ads! Time to see if apple will offer a refund, too bad since I used to really like the app but sounds like it was sold and new owners must be trying hard to make their mark...
So Disappointed 2/5
I’ve been using this app for a few years now, and it has definitely taken a turn for the worse. It’s slow to load, often having issues finding my location and many of the features that used to pop up right away no longer load at all.
This app is dead now :-( 1/5
First Storm was taken from us, now this app doesn’t even function. I’ve got nothing but “can’t connect” and blank sections with a map that doesn’t even show the cities or storm watches etc. Weatherunderground used to be THE folks for accurate fast lifesaving weather info. Living in the heart of tornado alley, you learn quickly what good weather reporting is and what’s not. Because your life could depend on it. Uninstalling this app and still mourning Storm (THE best weather app ever released) Hard to believe weatherunderground is now ancient history :-( Wth happened??
Very glitchy can’t even search other cities without it going back to home
Named after 60s terrorist organization 5/5
Nice app app but it was named to honor the left wing terrorist group which bombed us government buildings in the 60s/70s
It used to be a great app. It almost stopped functioning correctly recently. Login doesn’t work. Although I have a subscription it started showing me ads. And developers seems not listening to customers.
Needs Work 3/5
The maps on this app have gone downhill. They at least used to have storm tracks. If says they have it now, but it does not work. The information provided is good, but the maps need a lot of work.
Cant sign in 3/5
Error when trying to sign in. I paid for premium earlier this year and now I can’t sign in to remove ads.
Future radar? 2/5
Future radar bumps me out to the App Store and then I get a message that the feature doesn’t exist. Why? Just build it into the app and be done with it. Annoying.
No longer works 1/5
By L Striegl
Used to love this app, but for several months it has simply stopped working. My location will load but no other data, and there’s a notification at the bottom of the page telling me “There was a problem connecting.” Hitting Retry does nothing. In the past this problem has occurred and been resolved within a week or so, but the duration of this latest error suggests that the developer is simply not going to fix it (I’m on an up to date iPhone 7 for reference). Disappointing.
Zero stars 1/5
Can’t login to my account
It’s just ok. 3/5
Rain and temperatures are accurate. Wind speed and direction are amazingly inaccurately. Honestly this app couldn’t get it more wrong. WU says 5mhp ENE, my other weather app says 18mph SSW. We go out on a boat in open water often and need to know the wind speed and direction.
Great App When working 2/5
I’m a PWS member, I can’t sign into the app most days. Always giving an error “ Sorry, Problems connecting”
& no data shows up. I can sign in fine on PC & view all of my weather station data. Just not in the mobile app.
TWC continues to kill WUG 5/5
It looks as if TWC is setting up the WUG app so they can kill it (like the did Storm).
All of a sudden, the ratings for this app are tanking but those for Storm Radar are elevating. Nothing changed in either app. Storm Radar is a dud and is nothing compared to the original WUG Storm app.
I wouldn’t be surprised to see TWC kill off the WUG completely any day now. Thanks TWC, you're insulting a dedicated community. Go back to your pretty graphics and charts and tell us how good your models are... you’re only convincing yourselves.
Wish it worked better 1/5
While I prefer wundergroud to the other weather apps it often fails to figure out my location, which means the forecast isn’t accurate or up to date. Not sure why as no other weather app has this same issue.
Even installing as new doesn’t help as I can’t get past the main screen since it can’t locate me.
No longer the best 1/5
Weather Underground used to be the best and my go to weather app and website. Now it is very close to being deleted. Both the app and the website have become painful to use. Suggest not wasting your time or energy.
Buggy intentionally? 2/5
Used to be a great app. But, for a few months now, if you choose NWS forecast, it regularly times out. Black screen and dumps you out. Storm Tracks was very useful with the radar; that hasn’t worked for months. Not sure why it’s an option, except to bait you to upgrade to Storm app. Bottom line, good forecasting product so poorly run now that I’m guessing TWC wants you to default to them (TWC comes up first in app search when you enter WU).
My go to 4/5
I’ve used this app for a long time and used the Weather Underground website since the time before smart phones. It is my first go to and recommended weather app.
App is flawed/broken... 1/5
I wish I could rate it a 0. I have never been able to sign-in... “Sorry, there was a problem connecting” is all I get. My account is setup on-line and I can log-in and see my PWS. If you’re wanting “App” access use the “PWS Monitor” it seems to work great.
Subpar Compared to Old Storm App 1/5
By Robin Lamb
Updated app still links to the now defunct Storm app.
Should have kept Storm and discontinued this one. No other app offers storm tracking like Storm did.
Gone downhill 1/5
Seems that ever since they partnered with sensational hype weather channel, the app has gotten slow, wundermap is barely usable. Just a crap app now.
This app used to be good 1/5
Now it’s terrible. If I were a developer, I’d be embarrassed to have my name attached to this app. I am unable to sign into my account with the app saying, “Sorry, there was a problem connecting.” Selecting a PWS by my current location doesn’t pull up my PWS that is meters away and pulls up one a mile away (The gps of the PWS is correct as my location shows up right next to it on the Wunderground map.). It says the data from my PWS might not be accurate as it only updates on the app sporadically even though the RapidFire updates are accurate every few seconds on the Wunderground.com website.
Can I rate 0 ⭐️?
Most efficient useful app available for the weather. Tried Weather Channel which is a toy in comparison.
Not working anymore. 3/5
First off I love this app. I have used it for ages and suggested it to everyone I know. I rely on it for scheduling my runs. The problem is, it hasn’t worked in a week, no updates, no forecasts, no nothing. And even worse, in my opinion, not a word from the company on what’s going on or when to expect service to be restored. That’s just bad customer service and in today’s market it will lose you customers. Starting to look alternatives, any suggestions?
