Intrusive ads ruin what could be a great app 2/5
Random ads pop up without warning after not tapping on anything. They play sound despite phone being on silent and dnd. Why? Ads also often crash the app when attempting to exit radar view.
The actual design of the app is decent, and the information it provides is comprehensive. However, there’s a lot of wasted real estate that could be tightened up to allow more content on screen at once without scrolling. And the mini radar view on the main screen is strangely centered such that it mostly shows area to the east of your current location; given that weather systems typically come from the west, this seems poorly thought through. I’ve submitted suggestions to fix these issues and have never received a response.
Unfortunately this still may be the “best” weather app out there, but that speaks more to the general lack of quality.
Accurate, but I really don't like the layout. 3/5
I wish I could combine the Dark Sky app's interface with Wunderground's accuracy. That would be a solid fiver for me.
I paid for a subscription to support their effort and no ads. I'm rewarded with video ads now that can't be skipped. Remove ads or refund!
It's has been ok then I bought an Apple watch. Now it crashes on Apple watch frequently.
Have had this app on several phones and it works horribly on every phone I’ve had it on highly recommend do not use
RIP Wunderground 1/5
When I first reviewed this app 3 years ago it was truly the best -Fast, super accurate and very user friendly...
Now it’s slow, much less accurate and full of ads even after you pay. Do not waste your money on this broken shell of a once great app.
Watch app and complication not working at all. I’ve deleted and reinstalled both the iPhone and watch app. This has been about a month ongoing. The main app also is very buggy. Sometimes having to close the app and go back in for anything to show up. 🤷🏼♂️
2nd gen Apple Watch and iPhone X
Screaming pop up ads 1/5
Used to be my go to weather app, but can’t use anymore because of the screaming adds that pop up as soon as I hit the radar screen.
Persistent Ad Videos Started Today 1/5
Was a great app except now persistent video ads have started popping up. Beginning to remind me of the weather channel app.
May delete this app soon.
Charged $2 to turn off ads, still covered in banners
Bogged down with ads 2/5
What used to be the cleanest and most accurate is now slow, bogged down with ads, and with a dumbed down interface that doesn’t make sense. Leaving this one for Dark Sky.
Was great, now intrusive ads 1/5
By Arm Bar
I would have give the free ap 5 stars until recently. However it now starts with an irritating video pop up ad that blocks the screen and takes a while to force stop. Static ads previously were tolerable. This is intrusive. Deleted the ap and moved on.
Rip off 1/5
I paid for the ad free version and I still see ads. I am deleting it and getting a refund from Google. Also, it cannot find Yosemite California. It thinks Yosemite is in Kentucky!
Commercials WITH SOUND 1/5
I just removed this app from my phone. Imagine my surprise when I attempt to check the weather on my muted phone at my desk and it starts blaring a commercial. I get that you need to pay your bills. But that is NOT OKAY. Delete.
What happened? 1/5
Full screen video advertising.
It is pretty but less useful at a glance 1/5
Feb 2018: those full screen ads that we hate that the last update got rid of just popped up again. How do you consistently mess up this much?
February 28: still no dark splash screen. The widget settings still don't work. Storm Tracks in the radar are still broken. The update notes say they did bug fixes but glaring bugs still remain.
December update: See the previous update.
Latest update: the developers still don't know how to add a dark theme splash screen. The new widget settings don't seem to do anything.
Latest update: please bring back the dark theme splash screen!
The black map is cool, but when can we have the dark splash screen back?
The new ad does in fact bite. I want the weather, not ads.
This update is a rather bad one. Information that used to fit on one screen is now super-sized and pushes everything else off the screen. It takes much more effort to get the forecast for the day, which was previously available at a glance and now requires multiple taps. I also can't figure out how to get to the radar without going to the main screen and tapping on it. The transitions between parts of the app are very rough. One of my saved locations also got moved to Norway, which also explains the warning in earlier versions that were clearly preposterous for the location. I get 3 of the same weather notifications over half an hour. Radar always shows the last image until you move it. That refreshes it and brings up the current images. One last thing:
Updates should not destroy my preferences.
I've enjoyed this app because it came from people that didn't dumb down the weather. Now we are seeing the fruits of the Weather Channel buy-out. This update told me it doesn't care about my settings and it doesn't care about making weather information easy to access. It has failed at its primary purpose.
One last thing, make a dark version of the splash page. I use the dark theme because I check the app first thing in the morning and the white splash page is harsh.
Poor meteorology, great UI/UX 2/5
soooooo I live in San Diego, didn’t think it was hard to predict the weather here but guess it is. For example, I checked the weather this morning and it said high of 68. It’s actually 77. How can you be 10 degrees off?
People use this to plan their activities/day. 10 degrees is not a margin of error guys. Off to find one that can actually predict the weather...
App works good, watch app is horrible 3/5
I use Weatherunderground daily and have a personal weather station that publishes to the site. So, I’m definitely a fan of the iPhone app. I think the app is good and generally works well.
But the Apple Watch app is a total failure. It’s gone through several revisions and while never working quite right, it now doesn’t work at all. It can’t seem to pull any location information from the main app, regardless of setting changes, reinstalls, etc. so it just displays a black screen with a GPS icon at the top. And that’s it.
I really wish WU would fix their watch app. In the interim, I’m using another weather app that ironically uses Weather Underground as a weather source and works perfectly.
Paid to remove ads — lost subscription, prompts for reviews 1/5
Can’t imagine why they would loose that, guess they figure no one will complain over $2/year.
Great app over all 3/5
All works except playing videos. I am just getting sound but no picture on iPhone 6
Issue with temperature 1/5
For the last week or so the temperature has been totally wrong. It's been saying it's 68-70 degrees when it's been 55 and below.
Ads do not respect silence setting 1/5
Very disappointing flaw - one cannot check this app silently anymore. A loud ad will automatically play, which can wake up baby or spouse.
Not sure this is the best way to encourage purchase of the ad-free version.
It was the best forecast / high-low / hourly / precipitation combo infographic of all weather apps, but technical issues keep coming up.
Delete the ads on this app
No more Videos and full page ads 5/5
Thank you for changing back. Every time I use it I click on an ad or two. Once again this is my favorite weather app.
Best app on in the apple store. 4/5
I’ve ALWAYS used the NOAA weather app in the past because I own a business that relies solely on the weather (wind, temperature, and precipitation) and it was always great, until I switch to an iPhone..... on the iPhone the weatheunderground app is leaps and bounds better than the NOAA Pro app minus the fact that in some areas it doesn’t have stations and gives you a station that is 50+ miles away and has given me a false reading on wind. Other than that one thing the app is substantially the best app in the Apple store.
Love it! 4/5
Still the best for me, despite quirks that come and go 5/5
For some reason, about a year ago, it stopped remembering my favorites consistently. Sometimes all my favorites appear and other times none at all. Still other times, it shows every favorite I've ever designated, including those I eliminated many years ago... and other times it adds some I've never chosen.
If this is a ploy to push me to move to the ad-free edition, it has backfired, because I have no faith that that will work any better!
So, it now requires more of my time to find the info I want, but Wunderground does seem to have accurate forecasts, which is what I come for. Thank you!
Closes when scrolling down to see the health data 1/5
Can’t see current pollen data in current version. 5.11.5
Really good but has gotten slow in the last few months 4/5
Worth the wait though, very accurate.
Used to be my go to weather app 1/5
Wunderground was my go to weather app for years but much like weather.com they’ve gradually increased the ad content to the point that this is now an informercial with weather content. It’s become unusable. I deleted it and switched to Acuweather which is far less invasive with its ads. Figure it out guys, you can only beat people over the head with ads so much, and everyone knows the standalone app model is at risk - be useful or be deleted.
Good updates 4/5
Thanks for removing the intrusive ads and restoring the app to its originally usefulness.
Love it!!! 5/5
Been using it for a while and frequently find it more accurate than other apps.
Love the app but 4/5
Hey guys. Love the app. Not writing for the review though. Just trying to get in contact. I’ve been emailing you all from the website for the last few weeks with no response. PLEASE fix the search result for Hot Springs, Arkansas. I’m begging. When I look it up it takes me to “Hot, Albania”...which is not even remotely close. Though I’m sure it’s a great place and the weather always seems nice (highs in the 70s all this week with lows only in the 50s!) it’s just not what I’m looking for. Please and thank you.
Used to love it! 1/5
This has been my go to weather app for many years, until today. Unfortunately, when I opened it earlier today it began playing a loud audio advertisement that alerted everyone in the room to what I was doing. While I get the need to generate revenue through advertising, playing loud audio adds is just not cool. I have deleted this app.
Back to its normally functioning greatness 5/5
This is my go-to weather app. Storm fronts can move in quickly here, so I always check the radar before going out to see if I need an umbrella. There was a problem with the app a while ago where annoying ads popped up every time I went to close out radar, but that’s been fixed now. It’s so nice to have an app company that will actually respond and fix a problem when you report it!
Was good, then LOUD audio ads 1/5
Super annoying ads started playing and I wasn’t near phone to shut the thing off.
Ads are the worst 2/5
Just deleted WeatherUnderground after years of using it because it played an audible ad while my phone was on silent. First off, not a fan of the ads in general, but having one that plays a voice and music when my phone is on silent is just too much. Good weather app but won’t be using it anymore.
Getting better again 4/5
I deleted the app and reinstalled as requested by the developer. It fixed a lot of my issues, the app still feels a little glitch but it works better now.
Love it 5/5
Most intuitive and accurate weather app around!
Video ads 3/5
Hi great app. I know you can pay to remove ads but when my phone is on silent and plays a video ad the sound still plays. Can you have the app honor the silence setting on the phone?
Beyond Bug Ridden 1/5
Could be a nice, if it actually worked on IPad
Very good wx app 3/5
Was very good but now has issues. Conflicting information and some of the modules don’t work anymore.
Did I pay for this? 3/5
The app is still buggy. Even now trying to track a tornado and the experience is miserable.
The apps main screen never loads for me. I see absolutely nothing. I love the website, but the app doesn’t work for me.....
Slow to load data 2/5
By Tom M In MA
All I want is to do a quick check of the hourly forecast and the app frequently fails to load or takes 15 seconds to do so. Seems like bloated app that must be using all its bandwidth to scrape data from me and load ads. Too bad because it has such potential.
A strange glitch has developed in this App 1/5
I just had to delete the App after having used it for many years because it recently took over the audio control in the Control Center of my phone and started eating up my phone’s battery life. I couldn’t find a way of preventing that from happening. If this glitch is ever corrected, I would reinstall the App.
Update: I recently installed the latest version of the App and I no longer am having the problem I described. It’s good to have Wunderground back on my phone, working as it should.
Further update : After deleting and reinstalling the App, the problem appeared to be rectified, but now the problem has reappeared periodically. I have no idea why, or how to permanently rectify the problem.
Lots of info but... 3/5
A good way to see a lot of relevant weather info at a glance but what is up with the glitchy scrolling and crazy battery drain (background activity? Are the ads mining bitcoins or something?)
My Go To app first thing 5/5
Coffee and WU app...ahhh...nicccce
Best interface; app crashes some 5/5
By The Glow.
I have subscribed because the Apple Watch app does not have ads.
Week weather graph shows temp/precipitation/sunrise/sunset in a wonderfully compact format.
You can get a larger, but still compact hour-by-hour graph of each day.
You can easily switch between multiple locations (force press on the watch).
It has an Apple Watch app that is not tied to location services.
It allows you to pick a specific weather sensor station.
The update in 4/18 made updates much faster and removed many of the crashes.
It has been crashing, but the latest update has improved things quite a bit. Force closing the app on the phone brings it back.
The different sections of data sometime diverge. I am not sure what to do with that. Removing the data is not the answer. With time you get a sense when to trust what.
I went searching for another weather app because of the ads. Now I know that no other app has more than one of these pros and most do not have the features mentioned in the cons to have problems with it.
Great app. I was having problems with it but I deleted and reinstalled and it’s been fine ever since.
Ads in paid version 1/5
BUT, I have the paid version, but there are still constant ads.
Pretty skeezy to require an annual subscription, AFTER one has already purchased an “ad-free” version.
