    I love the weather app. It's accurate and up to date. I just wish it had the movement showing the raindrops and the snow falling like it did on my old BlackBerry Classic. That was neat to see. Hopefully I could see that on the next update... 7/26/20 The Update was suppose to fix bugs not add them. My app has never acted up, but now it keeps saying turn on my location!!! But my location IS on!!! Update: With the new updates, the app is better!!!

  • Great App, Change is good people Jul 23, 2020

    By LA Living
    Is it really necessary to give one star and a bad review for something that clearly sounds like a bug and will most likely be fixed if it hasn’t been already? They literally just redesigned the whole app, give them a break. “Landscape mode is broken omg end of the world; worst app ever”🤨. It’s just funny how people are so averse to change. I can’t speak for the iPad version but on the iPhone this app is great. Way better than the weather app that Apple provides. Love the new beautiful design. Things are so much more organized. That navigation bar was all I ever wanted. Thank you! All the features are still the same. It’s just the layout that’s been improved. Only thing I’m confused by, and this may be a combination of nitpicking and my own ignorance, the moon rise and set times are weird. Moon rising at 8:34 am and setting at 10:34 pm? I’ll assume that’s a bug. Anyway love the app so much I went ahead and paid the $8.99 for the year. Bet most of you spend triple that amount on you micro transaction games so please, the least you could do is support people who are actually working hard to provide you with a helpful app rather than manipulating you into spending real money on your virtual farm 🙄. Keep up the good work Devs. Hope you guys are working on a nice widget for the next iOS update!

    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.

    After updates, this app is much more difficult to navigate. I had a very hard time locating features that were previously easy to find, and I'm still not happy that the update will only open in horizontal view on my tablets. That is extremely inconvenient. Not an insurmountable obstacle, but definitely annoying. IF the next "update" were to address these issues, AccuWeather would get a solid 5 stars from me. My irritation and the inconvenience drop it to a mere 3.

    Love the new app. Layout just makes sense. The theme (dark/light) finally follows the system setting correctly. The only complaint I have is that the temp in the status bar is still perplexingly much smaller font than the clock on my phone. (Edit - they long ago fixed the temp font size, though it is now oddly large when the temp is a single digit (thankfully not often))

  • 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.

    It's freeware powered by ads but you can wreck a good app with greed. Too much ads & animation for a (2018) Moto G6 Play, even when on WiFi. Update: 5 months later and it's still ridiculously slow & crashes randomly. Still using it because I've had better things to do than waste time looking for a better weather app but that will be fixed soon.

    Great features but KILLS your phone. I'm not sure if it's the widget or simply having the app installed but it consumes a TON of memory. Whenever my phone performance starts to tank, I go to running services and see this app listed as using MORE THAN 1 GB! Why!? I love the features but I have to kill the service frequently to free up memory. Immediately after killing the service my phone instantly performs better. Fix your memory leak and it would be 5 stars.

  • 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.

    It's really hard to tell the app to stick with my current location. Their widget shows conditions of my current place, but whenever I tap it, it shows my the info about a place I looked up yesterday. I tried changing it, changing to current location, killing the app, nothing helps - I tap the widget and get an irrelevant location. Please fix it!

    Love the radar. I live in storm/tornado area. I can keep tabs on what they're doing, especially when TV goes off. Also I just like their forecasts each day, so I can see if I need a coat! Love this app & have recommended it to others! Thanks! 2-18-21 I'm not as crazy about the update...harder to read. And it has you to click or roll the screen for different things that used to have on front page. But still gives correct info. Thanks!

  • 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.

  • “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.

    Good weather app. Has nice layout and feels pretty fast. Only strange thing about it is confusion with metric units. If you choose metric version it displays wind as kilometers per hour km/h, and that is pretty inconvenient, since we (Europe) use meters per second m/s to mesaure the speed of the wind. So km/h does not help to understand the forecast. I hope it can be fixed in next update.

    I switched to AccuWeather after hearing that Dark Skies would be leaving Android. The app is now much better than it was when I first got it, but it could still use a few improvements. I would like to receive notifications for when rain is immenant near me and how soon. Also, when I receive government weather updates I always recieve 3 duplicate notifications at the same time. This is not necessary.

Now let see! Newest edit: After 1 star I change it for 4 star. It's ok. Has to use to it. Still like the old version more though. 😊

    Great app. Absolutely love the accuracy, and insightful forecasts. My only complaint comes from the persistent notifications in the recent versions of the app. They were much more useful when it was the temperature in the status bar instead of thr current icon especially since the scaling for the numbers is completely broken cutting off half of their height. But other than that it's a great app and have been using it for years now. Will continue to use it with future devices I own.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

    So I have had this app a few times. And ALWAYS a few days after installing, it does not work correctly. The temp in the notification bar is blank. Even tho I am in the same place I was when I first dl it. When I open the app, it does not show anything like it can't get a reading. Which makes NO sense. I have Weatherbug as well and never have problems out of it. Please fix this janky app. It was a good one. Now it is worthless.
