    Autumn is a beautiful time of year, but the weather can be all over the place. In the span of 5 days you can have snow, rain, and 1 day that's scorching hot! Know what to prepare for by staying informed about the changing weather conditions around your home.

    I find it quite useful planning outdoor excursions. I think removing the ability to swipe between days was not a good move. Update; 12 May 2021 - noticed swiping function is back at least between hours. Good job. Further suggestion; left and right arrows next to day name to allow quick forward back across days - swiping isn't suitable here coz already used for day night history function. Response 13 May 2021 - I use the app multiple times daily. Add arrows next to the day name and it's perfect.

    I don’t much care for your recent update. It takes too long to finish loading and updating so I can actually get current info. You took away the feature that lets you pull down on the screen for update. You changed the order of the allergens (why would you do that? I had the order memorized, now I have to read each one). You removed the phases of the moon. I do like the “today, tonight, tomorrow” feature. I’ll see how I feel about it all when I get used to it. But the last thing I needed in my life right now was more change. Update: got a notification that I got a developer response. But I don’t see any way to access it. Oh well. Might try a different weather app. Oh. To add to the above comments, I now have to scroll to see the humidity. Didn’t need to before. Nuisance. 2nd update. Finally read the developer response. I don’t know if it displays to the general reader, but my take on it was, “Our technology is more important than what you want. So we’re going to push our technology.” That’s not a quote, but my interpretation. Mr/Ms Developer, I have seen your glowing statements about how everybody just loves the new update. That’s not what I’m reading in the reviews. FYI, people really don’t like being lied to. I’m going elsewhere for my weather.

IMO-Regardless of the minor issues with the widget AccuWeather is still the best choice for accurate weather forcast and current conditions.

  • Awesome update to a great app Jul 22, 2020

    By therben
    I have been traveling the USA with my family of 5 in a pop-up camper for the past year or so. We are sensitive to weather changes as we try to follow it around trying not to be too hot or cold or wet or dry. For months after we left home, I tried numerous weather apps simultaneously, comparing them for accuracy and ease of use and features. Sometimes I would try to use one exclusively for a while to see how it fit my flow of searching for the next location with good weather. I found the accuweather app to fit the right balance between being simple enough to use without headache and powerful enough to find specific conditions in new location. So I have happily subscribed and been using this app for the past 7 months or so without much complaint. The new update was teased a few days ago and I’m super excited about all the new changes. Somehow it has become incrementally more intuitive and easy to use while I find myself accessing old features in new ways. Very happy with it all.
  • Layout is Confusing Mar 2, 2019

    By audreylynn88
    I decided to download the premium version of this app after The Weather Channel had too many video advertisements. I was just tired of the ads. This app has no ads, but it is the LEAST user-friendly app I’ve ever had. The “back arrow” buttons are the same color and size as the text, and they’re placed right next to the text, so it took me a while to figure out how to go back. And every screen, the back button looks different. Sometimes you have to swipe down to get out of a screen (for example, hourly), and sometimes you have to hit the back button. And don’t even get me started on trying to toggle the hourly “compass”-style button. As soon as you touch the circle to try to drag it, the entire data does this weird zoom thing and the sensitivity is way too high for anyone’s thumb. It’s like they adjusted the mouse speed to 100- any tiny movement and you’re 4 hours past where you wanted to go, and it doesn’t land where you want it to land. Also, the circle should be on the actual hours, not on the bar graph below. You have to move the circle on the bar graph to see the hours change on top. It’s just not a very well-designed app.

    I changed the default location but it still opens to the original default. I even deleted the original default from my favorite list but it still opens to the old one. I also need to see wind info at a glance on the hourly forcast... what a PIA to have to select each one to see it.

  • Don’t Like the New App Jul 27, 2020

    By Jean in Tennesee
    I do not like the new app. First of all, the iPad app is now only in landscape version, and I have to turn my iPad mini sideways to view the app. Then, on the hourly and daily forecast pages, you have a box on the right side which shows the current info which is found on the main screen. This box is distracting when I’m trying to read the details for the hourly or daily forecasts. On my phone you have kept the portrait layout; if you can have it on the phone you can put it back on the iPad! At least give us a choice with the layout. I also noticed that the MinuteCast page no longer shows the actual address where you think I am. As it needs an actual address to be reasonably accurate by the minute, I would like to see the address back on the screen. It is even more important if I’m traveling from place to place in town; I can’t tell whether you have updated my location or not. Or are you still basing the MinuteCast on an exact address? The MinuteCast has always been my favorite feature of your app. Now the wheel and the detailed graphic are a little harder to read, and the wheel only shows one hour, not 120 minutes. Please bring back portrait mode on the iPad, and please make sure your MinuteCast feature is great at showing the details for my exact location. There are other weather apps, but the MinuteCast is what makes yours unique and is the reason I use AccuWeather.

    Originally this worked great on my Chromebook but then I started having problems after one of your updates and now after the latest one it won't even open so I changed to the Weather Channel one. I would have preferred the original of the Accuweather app but since that's not an option, I guess I'm done. With that latest update I would have done a zero stars if you had that option. ** Reinstalled. Worked ok until update last week and now it's flukey again. Irritating.
  • Looks like my original review was deleted Mar 10, 2021

    By raist3001
    I posted a review of this app in regards to the new look vs the old which seems to have been removed. Is that how you deal with negative reviews? I deleted this app long ago and thought I would see if any improvements have been made. Nope, still the same old horrible design that looks severely more outdated than the older look. The new update is not a hit and is mostly panned by users. I for one am upset as I paid for this app and have no way to change back. Information that was available at a glance is now buried in other menus. And where are the menu options? At the bottom of the display as opposed to their superior location in a menu I can access by swiping right from the left of the display. Want a weekly forecast? Now I have to stretch to the bottom or use 2 hands to access the new menu where as before, all I had to do was scroll up. These changes were made for the sake of changes. Nothing makes sense as to the arrangements. Has the developer even seen apples own weather app? Dark sky? Carrot? Inspiration that could have come from any one of these apps. To be honest, you had a hit on your hands with the old UI. Put your pride aside and accept the new UI is a failure. At least take all the negative comments and release a new update that marries what users of the old UI loved with the new. Stop telling us what is best.
  • Hate the new layout, no portrait mode, no hour by hour graphs Jul 21, 2020

    By BoilerG97
    Landscape mode only? So it appears this version of the iPad app only allows you to use it in landscape mode and does not support viewing data in portrait mode. I typically don’t use my iPad in landscape mode except for the odd spreadsheet and videos the rest of the time I use it in portrait mode. Especially as i am walking around the kitchen each morning trying to get ready for my day and commute to work. Trying to hold an iPad in landscape mode while also tryin to get out coffee and breakfast for the family is impossible. I wish that the app would autorotate depending on the orientation of the user or if there were a button in the settings to allow you to force the app into portrait mode. No more hour by hour graphs? - the old app allowed you to look at the hour by hour trends of the day in graphical form for temperature, realfeel and % Precipitation. Now all the graphs have been removed and replaced by text? Before at a glance with the charts I could look at the predictions and see what was likely the trend of the day and therefore provide me an easy way to choose if I should do a task that day. Now i have to sit and compare and remember each value hour by hour and try and figure out if we’re just getting a pop up shower in the afternoon or if the whole afternoon is going to be a wash for the Zoo or mowing the lawn.

    The only thing working right now is maps? Can't see hourly or anything else... Also if you want to remove ads it's $8.99 a year, why not just a one time payment like every other app out there? I'm not paying a subscription every year for a simple weather app. I'll just use a weather website and save it to my home screen in that case.
  • So so app Feb 20, 2018

    By Pmotz
    I was a regular user of Storm, but they deleted the ad-free option so I tried AccuWeather. Nope, It’s worse. The forecast, regardless of the name is no better than any other weather forecast, which is to say poor. A few observations: There is no option that I’ve found for displaying wind speed. The cloud cover is truly odd, lighter cloud cover has darker opacity and heavier cloud cover is lighter opacity, huh? That’s the opposite of what it should be. I’ve got the Premium version and it offers a 25 day forecast, well isn’t that special. The weather forecasters have trouble with tomorrows weather and they think they can forecast 25 days out? For entertainment purposes only. I get FAR too many severe weather notifications, many more than I get in Storm. Most of them are repeats, if a winter weather advisory is posted at 9:00 AM I get a notification right away, if I turn the screen off I will find another notification the next time I open it, for the same original advisory. Once is enough, thank you! Finally, the radar is pretty worthless, sometimes there’s nothing there when there should be, other times while playing the past couple of hours some of the “slices” are missing so the rain/snow is hurry jerky. When I check Storm’s radar it’s much better. Sorry, but this app is pretty sad.

    This app's data is very consistent. Consistently wrong. I've looked on other family members phones and for the same location we have very different forecasts. Specifically, wind forecasts are never the same.. It makes planning my outdoor workouts completely impossible.
  • This was the best weather app before the update.. Aug 4, 2020

    By DCIX5
    I’ve never understood why developers think update/upgrade means take something simple and make it more complicated to work with. Before the update I could click once or twice and get where I wanted to look. I get it. It is one or two scenarios at play here. 1. Someone is getting paid so they had to show they were doing something for the money, or, 2. New developers with ambitions to make it their own. I am the youngest person where I work by a decade + and it has been a point of pride when talking to the “old heads” about weather, that the app I had for weather (what this app WAS) was way better than the ones they have. Now it is just the same. I went from being “the weatherman” to having a look of shame in telling them this app isn’t good anymore. The one positive take away is on the radar the time is segmented better and has a longer time frame (why I have 2 stars instead of the 1). That and some different graphics would have been a great update. This was the best weather app in my opinion. Now it’s just the same as the rest. Way to play down to the “competition” . I hope that whoever it was that was in charge of this update is not responsible for developing any of my other apps.

  • What happened to Minutecast? Jul 30, 2020

    By eatmeloveme
    Really disappointed to see Minutecast change from what it was before. The ability to rotate clockwise by using my finger was very useful in timing the exact moment I could safely take my dog out (he hates rain!) It was useful in many other ways and was really the thing I loved most about this app. It seems Minutecast has transitioned to a bar graph which is not as user friendly imho. Also not clear if this bar graph is specific to my exact location now. Landscape-only view on iPad also makes this app an inconvenience to use. Overall, this update is a move in the wrong direction and will have me looking for alternatives. UPDATE Dear “Developer:” Thanks for the condescending response (awww... “change is awkward”). I’m not a moron, I figured out the new bar graph, the point is that your awkward change is not for the better. You didn’t address the iPad landscape-only issue; I suppose that’s another awkward change. Take a look at all the other overwhelmingly negative reviews after this update. Are all your loyal users just idiots like me for voicing their reactions to your awkward changes? If you really care about what you produce, don’t be so dismissive of the users who have supported you in the past. One bad review speaks 100 times louder than one good review.... and you now have an awful lot of bad reviews.

  • “Wow AccuWeather” Jul 7, 2018

    By clenet7
    My, my, am I pleasantly surprised today. I have been looking for years for an ACCURATE weather app that has animated weather conditions and finally by a chance view of an MSN sponsored ad (ads I never look at) I find AccuWeather. I’m amazed at the accuracy, appearance and ease of use of the app. It’s not overwhelming in its delivery and yet more detailed delivery is readily at your fingertips if you so choose. Can’t wait to see how accurate the rainy season of Southern California will be reported. To make this app beyond great please, please, pleeeeeeease give us the option to add weather sounds to go with your AccuWeather forecasted conditions even at a premium. A lot of us live in places where we miss the sounds of a windy day, or a rainy day, or a lightening stormy day, or the sound of ocean waves. Just imagine the comforting sounds for many people. I added other areas that have lots of weather change patterns to my AccuWeather app list just to see the different weather conditions. I am so looking forward to hearing them as well someday soon.

    By far the best weather app. It looks great, very easy to navigate and see weather, and actually gets the weather for your neighborhood as opposed to just the general city. My only complaint is the Widgets, they're ok, but are very basic. I wish there were more of them, or more customizable so I could see things I want (Hourly, 3,4,5 day weather) right from my home screen. Regardless it's still by far the best app.
  • Favorite weather app Aug 9, 2020

    By SocialDirector
    This is the best weather app! I’ve been an avid user for over a decade now, and before that I was a frequent user of the Internet version since the 1990s. As an important app on my home screen, I’m always referring to AccuWeather for everything from sunrise/sunset, Realfeel & hourly temperature, storm radar, and Future forecast. With family living elsewhere, I like that we can also check on weather in other regions of the country. When I was involved in a management position where weather could pose a problem, AccuWeather was always totally accurate to the minute when predicting rain, sleet, snow and overall accumulation. I astounded the director as we were both monitors of weather patterns and I was spot on 100% of the time thanks to the AccuWeather app. This is the best weather app out there! Keep up the great work and improvements with every version update and AccuWeather will always be my go-to app for anything weather related.
  • Exactly what I was looking for and more May 3, 2018

    By mortemistress
    I was looking for a weather app that would not only provide ACCURATE weather throughout the day and week, but also provide an allergy forecast, since I have pretty severe allergies. This app has done both of those, and done them well. It also has a small section on the Sun and Moon, and tells you the moon phase for the night. That is extremely beneficial for me, and is a feature I did not expect to find. I just saw an ad pop up to get 10 extra days of forecasts if I sign in with my Facebook, so I’m assuming I’ll have to pay for this at some point? Can’t be sure, but even if I do, I’m going to keep the app and pay for it, because it’s wonderful. It’s extremely simple and easy to use, and nice to look at (light and dark themes are also a bonus). I used to have this app a long time ago because it used to give a migraine forecast as well, since I get migraines often (don’t see that anymore, but that’s totally fine since my migraines are often related to the weather and allergies, and the app provides forecasts for both of those), and completely forgot about it. So happy I found it again! I know it’s odd to be so excited about a weather app, but trust me, when you have horrible allergies, arthritis, asthma, eczema, and migraines (yeah and I’m only 24, can’t imagine how bad I’ll be when I’m in my 70s), an app like this actually helps a decent amount so you can prepare for things a little bit.
  • The updates are great! Jul 23, 2020

    By ResqGurl
    Unlike most of the other users here, I think these updates make it easier to navigate and it still provides all the info you need. I really don’t understand the complaints; from the ones I’ve read it seems to be mostly from users who struggle with technology. Most of the features they claim are “missing” are not—humidity, dew point, wind speed and direction, and future forecast going out several weeks are all there. This app beats the old Weather Underground app (before Weather Channel mucked that up) by leaps and bounds. The buttons at the bottom to get to the different views is far more intuitive than having to scroll back up to the top to change it. The Month view makes it easy to look at future forecasts. I know people tend to not like change, and we’ve all been burned by developers ruining perfectly good apps, but in this case the “improvements” actually turned out to be improvements. Nice job!
  • Very detailed May 31, 2020

    I love this weather app. It is very detailed. Let’s you know with accuracy when rain is starting in your area. Like if says rain in 15 minutes. It will be raining 15 minutes later on queue. Updates constantly and has been the most accurate helpful weather app I’ve ever come across. Easy to understand and follow. Gives you great info on the pollen situation in your area. Current and what to expect in the next few days. What kind of pollen etc. As an allergy sufferer that is extremely helpful because we just know we are suffering but not exactly what pollen in causing it. I have this app on every device. iPad, phone, laptop. All of them. It even has the latest on my areas covid situation which can be a pain to search on google and time consuming. Has it all right here plus whether or not the cases have gone up or down from the week prior and by what percent. This app has it all. Highly recommend!

    I find it quite useful planning outdoor excursions. I think removing the ability to swipe between days was not a good move. Update; 12 May 2021 - noticed swiping function is back at least between hours. Good job. Further suggestion; left and right arrows next to day name to allow quick forward back across days - swiping isn't suitable here coz already used for day night history function. Response 13 May 2021 - I use the app multiple times daily. Add arrows next to the day name and it's perfect.

    I have used the paid ads-free version for years. Hands down the best weather detection I have ever encountered. Problem is, that every so often for no reason that I know of, the cities that I have inputted for weather locations, just disappear. Leaving me to have to re-input these City locations every time. It used to happen once every few months. Now it's becoming practically a weekly thing. I keep the app updated but this time I've uninstalled and reinstalled it, hoping for a better outcome.
  • Functional and Beautiful May 15, 2018

    By danwagner01
    I like everything about the AccuWeather app. AccuWeather has added one feature which I have never seen before. Within the iPhone app they have built a “Complication Center” which allows you to map different AccuWeather information onto the adaptable Apple Watch complication. The differing information will appear depending on which complication field you choose to add the AccuWeather complication to when customizing your Apple Watch. Basically, if the complication allows for three lines of information, in the complication center you can add three lines of detailed forecast information from within the app. But, if the complication is tiny (in one of the corners of your watch face) you can pick from a variety of secondary information to display there. When customizing the watch face all you need to do is add AccuWeather to any of the complication fields and your pre-selected weather information is displayed on one watch face. The AccuWeather team has done an incredible job designing this functional yet beautiful app.
  • Simple and effective Jan 8, 2021

    By Ev Wolfe
    I “fired” The Weather Channel app because it had become more of a super market tabloid than a source for weather information. This one behaves like the Weather Channel app of years ago. Nothing sensational...just weather information that’s easy to find and doesn’t make you wade through screens of ads and apocalyptic weather videos to find current or forecast weather. Having used this app for a year or so, I’ve got the following observations: Pros: Very accurate which is the main thing. Easy access to radar and temperature contour. The tropical storm tracker is great. Cons: I have to join the critics of the landscape-only layout. Here’s a result. When you enter your favorite locations, the first ones entered go to the bottom of the list. Well, I enter the locations most important to me first and those of lesser interest last. So, the ones I want to see first are at the bottom of the list. Couple that with the landscape layout and my most important locations are hidden from view in the pick list. The fix is to enter favorites from least to most important but that’s an unnecessary nuisance. Suggestions: Make changing from one location to another something like the very early Weather Channel apps where you merely had to swipe right to left to bring up the next location in the list. You didn’t have to exit the forecast and go back to a pick list to change locations. So, I dropped my rating from five to four stars. Still good, though.

    I think the site is very nice maybe too nice. For the Ocala Villages area many are older and I think when I make the age group I will want things easier. How I can understand is I am a disabled veteran with TBI so short term is effected and my motor skills are 10 years past my present age. So no guessing game just show what is going to happen. I can predict the weather from current radar better than you using the ad method and please it is obvious it is there. The catch the eye but in this instance you are messing with the parents worrying of children and children yes we mostly just watch an episode or so and come back later so you are not getting any profit of anything quantitative value when if you kept people of my watching and placing those ads, well you will see ads soar and we are retired.

  • Radar Apr 5, 2019

    By severeweathermanmvb1
    Of all of the weather apps I’ve seen many have poor types of cloud cover precipitation imaging covered during storms for areas specific to where the storm is, they tend to generalize with like green or purple or pink or whatever color they make snow and they don’t really define with sharpness. I guess what I’m trying to say is when you see a radar map you expect to see sharpness in the image not just a general color for rain or for snow or for mixed precipitation so I would like to see more sharpness especially during storms to define what the storm is doing so much sharper images would be very useful in these apps. Please except my advice as being useful as I am a longtime member of “skywarn” and registered with the National Weather Service in Mount Holly as a weather watcher and I have been since 1996 when I was in the newspaper for it, also two of my sons are avid weather watchers as well as astronomy watchers so we kind of take all this very seriously.

  • Good, not great, and occasional glitch. Apr 30, 2019

    By PerryLClark
    I’m using the free version of the app—and yes, there are ads, and they’re mildly annoying/obtrusive at times. But I’ll put up with ads for a decent service. Forecast data is reasonably accurate, and goes out to 15 days as reliably/accurately as any other. I’m using the iOS version of the app on an iPad Pro, iOS 12.2, all updates installed as of 30 April 2019. The interface isn’t as intuitive as it should be, and saving settings is problematic—eg, if I change units to SI (aka ‘metric system’), there’s a near-instantaneous change to deg C, km/hr, etc. But no ‘save’ button, and the next time I open the app, I’m back in Imperial units (deg F, miles, inches, etc). Switching between locations is also less intuitive than it should be; I find myself staring at the iPad for a moment, trying to recall how to switch from one locale to another. That shouldn’t happen more than once.
  • Really really good, just a few more features Jul 22, 2020

    By WindOverWater
    The recent redesign is a good improvement! This is quickly becoming my goto weather app since weather underground was lost to the bean counters at IBM. In fact AccuWeather will beat even the old WU IMHO with just a touch more. #1 allow the user to add a configurable second line underneath the ‘RealFeel’ line in all 3 screens - today, hourly, daily. For example, the wind direction and speed is important to me (live near the coast). There is empty real-estate there and the ‘RealFeel’ is already making that section busy (which is fine since the other sections are sparse). #2 add the solar and lunar noon times (in local time zone) with the inclination thereof to the sun and moon frame. In theory this data (table row) would be placed between rise and set times. This would allow people to know not just the solar noon and angle but also be able to track the changing lunar noon and angle.
  • Amazing app sometimes doesn’t have the best accuracy Oct 21, 2019

    By Estevan Guerrero
    This app is amazing and i use it all the time to see how i needs to go dressed for my games and also if I'm going practice our coach uses this to to tell us if practice is changed to a different location I love it and i would not use any other weather service beside this one. Apps do sometimes come with flaws like when it is raining and the weather app says that it is clear and on other weather apps the weather is precise, this has happened twice now a little annoying but rarely happens. Another thing is the app will use a city or a town that is twenty to thirty miles out this happens at least ten present of the time with gets annoying but I've seen it happen with other weather apps so I'm not to upset other that that this app is the best and i would highly recommend using this weather app.
  • Was a 4, now a 3 Jul 31, 2020

    By GaiaLady
    I don’t much care for your recent update. It takes too long to finish loading and updating so I can actually get current info. You took away the feature that lets you pull down on the screen for update. You changed the order of the allergens (why would you do that? I had the order memorized, now I have to read each one). You removed the phases of the moon. I do like the “today, tonight, tomorrow” feature. I’ll see how I feel about it all when I get used to it. But the last thing I needed in my life right now was more change. Update: got a notification that I got a developer response. But I don’t see any way to access it. Oh well. Might try a different weather app. Oh. To add to the above comments, I now have to scroll to see the humidity. Didn’t need to before. Nuisance. 2nd update. Finally read the developer response. I don’t know if it displays to the general reader, but my take on it was, “Our technology is more important than what you want. So we’re going to push our technology.” That’s not a quote, but my interpretation. Mr/Ms Developer, I have seen your glowing statements about how everybody just loves the new update. That’s not what I’m reading in the reviews. FYI, people really don’t like being lied to. I’m going elsewhere for my weather.
  • May 13, 2021

  • Layout is Confusing Mar 2, 2019

    By audreylynn88
    I decided to download the premium version of this app after The Weather Channel had too many video advertisements. I was just tired of the ads. This app has no ads, but it is the LEAST user-friendly app I’ve ever had. The “back arrow” buttons are the same color and size as the text, and they’re placed right next to the text, so it took me a while to figure out how to go back. And every screen, the back button looks different. Sometimes you have to swipe down to get out of a screen (for example, hourly), and sometimes you have to hit the back button. And don’t even get me started on trying to toggle the hourly “compass”-style button. As soon as you touch the circle to try to drag it, the entire data does this weird zoom thing and the sensitivity is way too high for anyone’s thumb. It’s like they adjusted the mouse speed to 100- any tiny movement and you’re 4 hours past where you wanted to go, and it doesn’t land where you want it to land. Also, the circle should be on the actual hours, not on the bar graph below. You have to move the circle on the bar graph to see the hours change on top. It’s just not a very well-designed app.
  • May 11, 2021

    By Tracie Tipton
    I changed the default location but it still opens to the original default. I even deleted the original default from my favorite list but it still opens to the old one. I also need to see wind info at a glance on the hourly forcast... what a PIA to have to select each one to see it.
  • App is great but “RealFeel” is misleading Jan 24, 2021

    By AudreyRose08
    I do love the minutecast format (which is usually correct) and the overall look of the App. Unfortunately, for the past few weeks the RealFeel temperature has been absolutely wrong. And I mean off by more than 10-15 degrees. I first noticed it on a day when the RealFeel was expected to stay in the single digits all day, but the lowest the App ever got to that day was 16. Thinking it was just warmer than they predicted, I ignored it. But the last few days have been bitterly cold, again with single digit RealFeel predictions. Again, the past 2 morning the App has shown the RealFeel temps at around 15-17. However, THREE other weather apps currently say the RealFeel is between 3-5 degrees. That’s well over a 10 degree difference which is a HUGE difference in the winter, and very frustrating. I don’t understand how they it information is so off compared to several other Apps. We’re expected to get a few days of small showers this week, and Accuweather makes no mention of some of those snow showers. If it ends up that it does snow those days, and they’re not predicting snow like every other app, then it’s kind of pointless to keep Accuweather around.

    Love everything except the lack of location accuracy. Consistently 12-15 miles off of my location, and it shows me in a completely different town and county. Never had this problem with the Weather Channel app. I want to keep using AccuWeather (I paid for the service), but if it will be claimed to be accurate, this needs to be fixed.
  • Useful features, but the alerts need work Oct 13, 2018

    By palabrajot
    Accuweather is my primary weather app- it’s very good about serving up detailed and timely information, and the alerts are especially crucial when you live in a northern plains state like I do, where floods, tornadoes and suddenly icy roads are all things which have to be accounted for. It’s because of the alerts that I have to drop a couple of stars, though- more often than not, the push notifications which Accuweather sends me are almost useless, because it will buzz my Apple Watch or my phone with a message that I have an alert, but not include the nature of the threat. This forces me to dig out my phone, open the app and find the button with the yellow exclamation point next to it. High winds? Heavier than usual rain? An addendum to an existing flood alert? A tornado in my area? All treated the same. I get fatigued from all this vigilance, which can itself be dangerous- I’m forced to treat every pop-up like it’s a potential disaster, instead of just getting the important highlights in a watch alert which I can then either dismiss or explore in greater depth. This correction would make Accuweather so much more useable for me.
  • Hourly Forecast Bug & Current UI ruin, otherwise great app. Dec 30, 2020

    By wulfeman
    The most recent updates have included a bug with the hourly forecast. (ie, it is currently Wednesday, but when I select Hourly Forecast, it starts with Friday! I can not find any way to get today’s hourly forecast) Another annoying feature, which I mentioned in a previous review of the “Version 4” app, is the change in detailed daily view information. In the previous version of the app, I could review anticipated rainfall for the next several days, by going into the daily Forecast detailed view, then scroll from Day to night outlook, from one day to the next, by repeated swipes. Now, I can only view a single day at a time. The app requires you to close the detailed view, switch days, then re-select the detailed view for that day. This is extremely frustrating, when I am trying to anticipate the total impact of a large, multi-day storm wave. I don’t understand why they can’t simply permit continuous scrolling, while listing the Day, at the top of the listing. The current interface LOOKS nice, but it is far less user friendly than the old one.
  • Apple Watch complication not as good. Sep 23, 2020

    By littlemusicman
    Update: I added one star because they have fixed the issue of the Apple Watch complication not working. It now works. However, it’s a dumbed down version of what they had before. Before the major update, I had several choices on what would be displayed in the complication. Specifically, I could choose whether it displayed the actual temperature or the real feel temperature. Those options are now gone and it only displays the actual temperature. I would much prefer to be able to see the real feel temperature. If they brought those options back I would change my rating to 4 stars. Original review: The new app on the phone itself is ok. I don’t like it quite as much as the old one but I could deal with it. What really bugs me is that they got rid of the Apple Watch complication! Why? I was using that on my Apple Watch exclusively on all of my faces that allowed for it. Now it’s just gone. It still has an Apple Watch app but you have to open the app to see basically the next 60 minutes of precipitation and the temperature. Gee thanks.
  • Another update, another hi-hum. Aug 1, 2020

    By Austentation
    Update. Just when I thought it was safe to like my weather app again, iPhone device change automatically updated the app. I liked it better before the update. Maybe I was just used to how it was but again, I have to dig to get the info I could find more easily before. One thing I really miss is the phase of the moon. If it’s still here, I haven’t located it yet. It’s still my regular weather app. Frankly, I also liked the animation for current weather as soon as the app was opened. It said so much more than the odd multi-spoked wheel. 🤔 I like the app pretty well—it’s my favorite weather app so far. I’d give it four or five stars except for the fact that some recent change/update made it so the hourly forecast is now a side to side click where each click displays each hour; instead of a simple scroll. I find the new hourly display far less convenient and more time consuming. I FAR, Far, far preferred the scroll as I got a lot more information at a glance. Please change it back. Not all changes are good changes.
  • Don’t Like the New App Jul 27, 2020

    By Jean in Tennesee
    I do not like the new app. First of all, the iPad app is now only in landscape version, and I have to turn my iPad mini sideways to view the app. Then, on the hourly and daily forecast pages, you have a box on the right side which shows the current info which is found on the main screen. This box is distracting when I’m trying to read the details for the hourly or daily forecasts. On my phone you have kept the portrait layout; if you can have it on the phone you can put it back on the iPad! At least give us a choice with the layout. I also noticed that the MinuteCast page no longer shows the actual address where you think I am. As it needs an actual address to be reasonably accurate by the minute, I would like to see the address back on the screen. It is even more important if I’m traveling from place to place in town; I can’t tell whether you have updated my location or not. Or are you still basing the MinuteCast on an exact address? The MinuteCast has always been my favorite feature of your app. Now the wheel and the detailed graphic are a little harder to read, and the wheel only shows one hour, not 120 minutes. Please bring back portrait mode on the iPad, and please make sure your MinuteCast feature is great at showing the details for my exact location. There are other weather apps, but the MinuteCast is what makes yours unique and is the reason I use AccuWeather.
  • So so app Feb 20, 2018

    By Pmotz
    I was a regular user of Storm, but they deleted the ad-free option so I tried AccuWeather. Nope, It’s worse. The forecast, regardless of the name is no better than any other weather forecast, which is to say poor. A few observations: There is no option that I’ve found for displaying wind speed. The cloud cover is truly odd, lighter cloud cover has darker opacity and heavier cloud cover is lighter opacity, huh? That’s the opposite of what it should be. I’ve got the Premium version and it offers a 25 day forecast, well isn’t that special. The weather forecasters have trouble with tomorrows weather and they think they can forecast 25 days out? For entertainment purposes only. I get FAR too many severe weather notifications, many more than I get in Storm. Most of them are repeats, if a winter weather advisory is posted at 9:00 AM I get a notification right away, if I turn the screen off I will find another notification the next time I open it, for the same original advisory. Once is enough, thank you! Finally, the radar is pretty worthless, sometimes there’s nothing there when there should be, other times while playing the past couple of hours some of the “slices” are missing so the rain/snow is hurry jerky. When I check Storm’s radar it’s much better. Sorry, but this app is pretty sad.
  • This was the best weather app before the update.. Aug 4, 2020

    By DCIX5
    I’ve never understood why developers think update/upgrade means take something simple and make it more complicated to work with. Before the update I could click once or twice and get where I wanted to look. I get it. It is one or two scenarios at play here. 1. Someone is getting paid so they had to show they were doing something for the money, or, 2. New developers with ambitions to make it their own. I am the youngest person where I work by a decade + and it has been a point of pride when talking to the “old heads” about weather, that the app I had for weather (what this app WAS) was way better than the ones they have. Now it is just the same. I went from being “the weatherman” to having a look of shame in telling them this app isn’t good anymore. The one positive take away is on the radar the time is segmented better and has a longer time frame (why I have 2 stars instead of the 1). That and some different graphics would have been a great update. This was the best weather app in my opinion. Now it’s just the same as the rest. Way to play down to the “competition” . I hope that whoever it was that was in charge of this update is not responsible for developing any of my other apps.

  • REALLY DISLIKE THE new format!! Jul 31, 2020

    By *ke
    I liked this app the way it was before (that’s why I bought it!)....But yesterday—without my choosing to update the app—it suddenly changed. The daily format now has a dark blue background with a row of vertical bars lined up side by side which for indicating daily temps. I SO do NOT like this format. I selected this app BECAUSE i liked the general format the way it was when I purchased it. To change it completely is essentially to tell folks “you must not know what you like”...we will give you something completely different after the fact. It would be like the manufacturer of a car suddenly changing your car model and color a few months after you bought it. Now I will need go back online and start looking to buy a weather app that has a format I like and then delete this app that I have already purchased. What a bummer! My suggestion to developers is to tweak the app you have created with some improvements or bug fixes as may be needed. And that you can safely assume that almost all the folks who bought your app chose it BECAUSE they liked as it was. If you want to created something completely new, start with a new app—do Not completely re-configure the old app!!
  • May 8, 2021

    By Logan Marsh
    Accuweather is a terrible name. The forecast is so widely inaccurate that it depends completely on which screen you are looking at. I guess they want to be considered accurate because somewhere, some place in the app there may be a correct forecast. Heck,the app even tells you it is going to rain when there is no rain anywhere about. Overall, really do not like.

  • USED TO BE one of the best iPhone weather apps Sep 30, 2020

    By omalansky
    The Accuweather iPhone app has gone through a number of interface changes in recent years. The 2020 version was by far the best UNTIL the latest update. What a disaster it is!! Despite the advertising hype, I find it hard to believe that anyone with even an ounce of good taste thinks the new interface is “exciting”. “Just plain ugly” is how I would describe it, or—if I were feeling especially charitable, I might call it “generic” or “nondescript”. The interface it replaces was artful by comparison. The new interface is so unattractive that I may delete this app from my phone just so I don’t have to look at it! As if this wasn’t enough, the new layout is also less practical than the old one. For example, the “today” screen used to show current temp, high/low temps, wind speed and humidity at a glance. Now users must scroll past the advertising to find the basic information like wind speed and humidity. I’m sorry, Accuweather developers, but I have to give your new interface a huge THUMBS DOWN and lower my rating from five stars to two. Anyone looking for a first-class weather app should take a look at WeatherBug.
  • Much better weather apps out there Jun 30, 2020

    By Daddyrabbit49
    I now use AccuWeather for looking at the videos. I have several better apps for Weather forecasting and weather conditions. But I think I’m finally going to trash it because the videos don’t tell you anything... I’ve complained about this several times and, of course, never received a reply but... why are videos posted with no indication of where the event is happening???? Pretty or sensational, or disastrous pics and videos mean absolutely nothing not knowing where the event is taking place. Unless the event is being covered by news or weather people who explain where they are, it’s pointless. Case in point... a person we know that lives in NYCity is out of town. I sent them the flooding video today. They had no idea where it was or if it affected their area. Would have been nice to know. Spend some time addressing this issue if you want your app to be worth using. You can get better weather conditions and forecast with dozens of other apps (which I do use for actual weather). The video postings could make yours worth using. I’ll hold out a while longer before I trash AccuWeather.
  • This used to be great Aug 3, 2018

    By Chell of Aperture
    I don’t write many reviews. But after relying on a good app for many years, I must say ever since the start of 2018 it has plummeted. Too many unnecessary and inaccurate warnings, and the rain is barely accurate as well anymore. The temperature is still pretty spot on but besides that theres nothing else really left to applaud. The radar is odd, and only shows for the following hour, not to mention many glitchy aspects that so many people already have pointed out. I am currently looking for another app to replace this one with because these Special Weather statements are too much now. Ever since the start of the year they are over the top. I even got a Tornado warning in my area (which is a hilly area on the east coast that gets a tornado once every few years) and then a second alert five minutes later saying “CORRECTION: Foggy conditions”.... How does one mess up that bad... Not to mention general and regular thunder storms being sent out as Special Weather statements, and then not happening at all. All in all I am just very disappointed in the changes that have happened. This app used to be great, but now it isn’t.

    Originally this worked great on my Chromebook but then I started having problems after one of your updates and now after the latest one it won't even open so I changed to the Weather Channel one. I would have preferred the original of the Accuweather app but since that's not an option, I guess I'm done. With that latest update I would have done a zero stars if you had that option. ** Reinstalled. Worked ok until update last week and now it's flukey again. Irritating.
  • Looks like my original review was deleted Mar 10, 2021

    By raist3001
    I posted a review of this app in regards to the new look vs the old which seems to have been removed. Is that how you deal with negative reviews? I deleted this app long ago and thought I would see if any improvements have been made. Nope, still the same old horrible design that looks severely more outdated than the older look. The new update is not a hit and is mostly panned by users. I for one am upset as I paid for this app and have no way to change back. Information that was available at a glance is now buried in other menus. And where are the menu options? At the bottom of the display as opposed to their superior location in a menu I can access by swiping right from the left of the display. Want a weekly forecast? Now I have to stretch to the bottom or use 2 hands to access the new menu where as before, all I had to do was scroll up. These changes were made for the sake of changes. Nothing makes sense as to the arrangements. Has the developer even seen apples own weather app? Dark sky? Carrot? Inspiration that could have come from any one of these apps. To be honest, you had a hit on your hands with the old UI. Put your pride aside and accept the new UI is a failure. At least take all the negative comments and release a new update that marries what users of the old UI loved with the new. Stop telling us what is best.
  • Hate the new layout, no portrait mode, no hour by hour graphs Jul 21, 2020

    Landscape mode only? So it appears this version of the iPad app only allows you to use it in landscape mode and does not support viewing data in portrait mode. I typically don’t use my iPad in landscape mode except for the odd spreadsheet and videos the rest of the time I use it in portrait mode. Especially as i am walking around the kitchen each morning trying to get ready for my day and commute to work. Trying to hold an iPad in landscape mode while also tryin to get out coffee and breakfast for the family is impossible. I wish that the app would autorotate depending on the orientation of the user or if there were a button in the settings to allow you to force the app into portrait mode. No more hour by hour graphs? - the old app allowed you to look at the hour by hour trends of the day in graphical form for temperature, realfeel and % Precipitation. Now all the graphs have been removed and replaced by text? Before at a glance with the charts I could look at the predictions and see what was likely the trend of the day and therefore provide me an easy way to choose if I should do a task that day. Now i have to sit and compare and remember each value hour by hour and try and figure out if we’re just getting a pop up shower in the afternoon or if the whole afternoon is going to be a wash for the Zoo or mowing the lawn.

    The only thing working right now is maps? Can't see hourly or anything else... Also if you want to remove ads it's $8.99 a year, why not just a one time payment like every other app out there? I'm not paying a subscription every year for a simple weather app. I'll just use a weather website and save it to my home screen in that case.

    This app's data is very consistent. Consistently wrong. I've looked on other family members phones and for the same location we have very different forecasts. Specifically, wind forecasts are never the same.. It makes planning my outdoor workouts completely impossible.

    I am 'NOT' unsatisfied with updates progress. I 'AM' unsatisfied of the many 'KEY' Features/ Settings that were IN the older version were OMITTED in the 'NEW' version: *Notification Settings; *Hourly/ Daily "BAR GRAPHS"; *Tablet Portrait mode: *Temperature @ Display Bar; and MANY more. 'NOT' aware of 'ANY' other current weather app that doesn't have BOTH PORTRAIT & LANDSCAPE orientation. ****** 05/06/21 Another UPDATE and STILL MISSING ALL the above items that were in the OLD VERSION!!!
  • What happened to Minutecast? Jul 30, 2020

    By eatmeloveme
    Really disappointed to see Minutecast change from what it was before. The ability to rotate clockwise by using my finger was very useful in timing the exact moment I could safely take my dog out (he hates rain!) It was useful in many other ways and was really the thing I loved most about this app. It seems Minutecast has transitioned to a bar graph which is not as user friendly imho. Also not clear if this bar graph is specific to my exact location now. Landscape-only view on iPad also makes this app an inconvenience to use. Overall, this update is a move in the wrong direction and will have me looking for alternatives. UPDATE Dear “Developer:” Thanks for the condescending response (awww... “change is awkward”). I’m not a moron, I figured out the new bar graph, the point is that your awkward change is not for the better. You didn’t address the iPad landscape-only issue; I suppose that’s another awkward change. Take a look at all the other overwhelmingly negative reviews after this update. Are all your loyal users just idiots like me for voicing their reactions to your awkward changes? If you really care about what you produce, don’t be so dismissive of the users who have supported you in the past. One bad review speaks 100 times louder than one good review.... and you now have an awful lot of bad reviews.
  • Gone to NOAA APP Aug 29, 2020

    By Clr4tkof
    Had to move to the NOAA app, since all of the complaints including mine, fell on deaf ears. While the previous version of Accuweather that displayed written 10 day forecast and had the interactive circle that you could drag around to the exact minute precip would start for your location (and was amazingly accurate), were much loved and easy to read and that version was so easy to navigate, the new one is just a fail in every way. The closest I can find to what accuweather used to have is the NOAA app, so have moved on. It’s about a 4 star site. Accuweather used to be a 5-star, but the developers who thought they had to copy lesser sites, took a good format and ruined it. Now zero stars from me. If you wanted to add a little color, that would have been fine, but the set up was already the best one out there. I just don’t even get the point of the temperature bar graph thing. It’s rather stupid and so is the replacement graph on a second page for the minute by minute precip dial. Having worked with weather, radar and METAR in the aviation industry for 35 years, I find this hard to navigate, dumbed down version, a waste of my time. I want a site that gives me the maximum information in the fastest and easiest navigable format possible. Recommend everyone checkout the NOAA app.

    The new version is a problem. Very glitchy. I dare not switch to radar view because it cause my phone to freeze up. I am looking for a new weather app.
  • Version 14 Kills This App. Terrible! Jul 9, 2020

    By Gamer3475
    UPDATE 7/8/20 - Version 14 Well as most apps tend to do these days, they completely redesigned their app and it is now worse. I had to update my review to just one star. The complete redesign is a step backwards in my opinion. The details/current conditions area on the homepage is now below an ad and doesn’t let me change the information I want to see there. The sunset and rise times are above the current conditions area which is ridiculous, that should be at the bottom. Plus since I can’t choose which weather details I want to see in the current conditions section, the dew point is no longer there. I have to tap more details and go to a second page to see the dew point value. The minute rain cast is way to prominent at the top of the page. The reason I originally started using this app is because I could choose what weather details I wanted to see and they were placed right at the top of the app for me to see in an instant of opening the app. Now I have to scroll past an ad and tap more details before I can get the information I want. Just let us choose what sections we want and want details we want in each section and in what order we want each section to be displayed in! Major failure! I’m uninstalling!
