    I gotta stop updating this app. Instead of bug fixes and improvements, the last several updates have just added more ads that are intrusive and ruin the experience. Full screen pop-up ads, permanent banner ads, ads on the radar screen, blocking some of the radar area, ads as you scroll through the interface. I understand that's how they make money, but it's starting to ruin the experience now. The app itself works great as a weather app, and I've been using it for years now. But excessive ads...
  • Do Not Use The Future Radar Jul 14, 2021

    By cookieghost8
    Whatever you do, do not use the future radar. The future radar is not accurate at all. It showed that a thunderstorm would disappear by the time it would hit my area. WRONG. The thunderstorm that is a 5 miles away from my area hits me and brings penny sized hail and flooding rain. Accuweather’s algorithm for using a future radar is terrible. After you get an hour into the future radar mode, it starts broadening out the rain and sometimes exaggerates what you will see. For example, sometimes it says a shower will later turn into a hailstorm but that never happens. Sometimes it will say a thunderstorm will weaken and turn into a shower, but instead it will intensify into a hailstorm. Do not rely on the future radar for anything. All of the other features are pretty accurate. I like how it shows the rain total for the day and the night (could be inaccurate when it comes to spotty thunderstorms). The app is good with only banner ads (at least there is no video ads). I have been using accuweather for 2 years now and I have been satisfied using it, but if you are looking for an accurate future radar I would look somewhere else. Minutecast is very accurate, and I was very impressed when I first saw how accurate it was. This app is one of the first to use a minute by minute system of forecasting and I am very thankful for finding this app on the App Store. - 2 year AccuWeather user 😀
  • Mostly great! Jun 17, 2021

    By Bill_Johnson
    There are tons of weather apps available. The devs description is accurate, but I will tell you my top Pros/Cons. PROS: ~ Love the radar. Gives you an option to view the past or future. ~ A slick “Minute by Minute” wheel that pinpoints precipitation for the next two hours. ~ A ton of features that don’t overwhelm you when launching the app. The basic stuff is clearly and nicely laid out and simple taps/swipes will get you to deeper details if desired. CONS: * The “location services” pin points my house right on the mark. But, the app declares the location is a nearby city instead of the one my house is in. * I have several weather apps that use location services plus my own house thermometer. AccuWeather many times states that it is 4-6 degrees cooler than all the others. * That’s it. Some may feel those are picky things, but it is enough to knock off a star IMHO. Overall, a great app. I was happy to pay the $4 to support the devs and also get rid of the ads. 😄 UPDATE: AccuWeather no longer offers a pay once to get rid of ads. It is now a monthly or yearly fee. Besides costing much more, “family sharing” means nothing now. EVERY family member must pay the on-going fee if you want to get rid of the annoying ads. In other words, my pay once fee does not get grandfathered in. 👎🏻

    Fairly good app with a clean UI. Ads are a bit intrusive now but not a problem for the odd check of the weather. The widget for Android works well. However, accuracy is a small issue with the app and more so the widget as it sometimes just doesn't update. Overall, a decent weather app certainly better than other apps out there.
  • 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.

    App is great most of the time, hourly & daily forecasts seem to work well. Radar looks great as well. Main issue is the app & widget seem to have a bug where it thinks it's raining but it's obviously not outside, with no rain in sight. Radar shows nothing, hourly forecast shows nothing, yet the main screen and widget say it'll be raining for the next 30 minutes or so. A minor inconvenience but would be a nice bug to get fixed visually.

    The app has been crashing for several days now. I have paid for an "ad-free and more" version, and despite uninstalling and reinstalling the app multiple times over the past 48 hours, the app has not even been able to load itself on clicking. This isn't why I paid for what was claimed to be the best weather app available. I've been patient with the app's steady decline in usability for some time now, but unless something is done soon to set things right, I will be asking for a refund. Edit: Recent updates seem to have fixed the problem.

    By Bilal Baig
    The hyperlocal weather app is accurate but the accuracy is starting to decline. It always tells me that there is gonna be a thunderstorm but no. It is the opposite. Over the last updates, the ads have been intrusive. The weather is 80 percent accurate but sometimes shows the wrong prediction. Like ecerytime. The developers should decrease the ads because the app is being used worldwide.
  • 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.

    I don't have a problem with ads personally, apps gotta generate revenue somehow. That said the ads shown for this application are the most frustrating experience. Whole screen ads you cannot dismiss easily because the close ad area is the size of a pixel is terrible design. I'm tired of trying to view the weather just to have my whole screen taken up by a facebook pop-up ad that I cannot close without shutting the entire application down and relaunching. Terrible user experience and design.
  • Terrible and deceptive! Why only landscape on iPad? Sep 11, 2021

    By LeeGeeeeeee
    Just deleted app from my iPad. The web version in web browser looks and works fine. Tired of developers making changes for themselves and not for the users. I quote “The reaction to our changes has been overwhelmingly positive”. What universe do you people live in? Your day jobs must be working on political campaigns. The original accuweather was nice. You built up reviews and now you have changed it into something completely different. You took advantage of Apples flawed review system and your fan base. You can basically create an app and then change it to anything you want with IAP and keep all those previous reviews. You don’t deserve all the stars you have. You should be forced to pull everything and start over. I think I’ll be using DarkSkies more now. Their ui retains a fresh simple approach. The change on the iPhone version is ok but I hate being forced to use an app like this in Landscape. Just another example of making changes for the sake of making changes and I guess job security. The way you had it was perfect. All I had to do was scroll down to see hourly, daily forecasts. It works just fine in portrait on an iPhone with a screen size that’s about a fourth of an iPad Pro but the iPad Pro has to be landscape? Just look at it, there is an acre of dead space on the screen. Ridiculous, arrogant and lazy programming.
  • 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.

    This was my go-to site since I can remember. The app is also great, but... The widgets are terrible. Only a simple widgets are available, very limited customization and no choise of size, or of the data being displayed. Extremely disappointed. A big fan forced to look for alternatives. Whoever is your product owner, you should ask him for a refund.

    Horrible Full Screen Ads! I get you want ads to increase revenue but these make the app difficult to use. They are more of a hassle. I don't want to figure out how to close the ad just to check the weather. Sometimes while clicking close it just brings me to the ads website. That's really unsafe as well.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Sep 15, 2021

    By christopher dent
    The daily forecast is fine but the push notification alerts are very misleading! I keep getting alerts that tropical storm Nichols is going to create severe thunderstorms and rain in my area. Nicholas is nowhere near us, and storms/rain are not even in their own (or any other) daily forecast. False alarms about hurricane here in Florida is outright dangerous. Uninstalling!
  • 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.
  • 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!
  • Favorite weather app Aug 9, 2020

    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.
  • Updated (v13.0.4) Now Great UI; Very Accurate; Excellent, Responsive Support Jan 13, 2020

    By Steve_.W
    AccuWeather has been for several versions and for many years now (13 Jan 2020) a great app—one of the best, most useful I’ve licensed (having paid for the ad-free upgrade). (I am embarrassed that I did not post an updated correction to my 2014 v7 review until today.) The user interface is clean, easy to use and understand. One can, with a little finesse, even create a location for which to see weather forecasts as specific as for an single address, road intersection, or place (eg, an outdoor stadium). I have found the forecasting to be incredibly accurate, sometimes to the minute! Last winter, this AccuWeather app predicted snow in 18 minutes, as I contemplated rushing from home to do an urgent errand. Exactly 18 minutes later, as I came outside, having finished, it started snowing as I walked to my car—awesome! I have played soccer outdoors for 25 years. Rain timing predictions have rarely been wrong. When AccuWeather forecast rain between 8pm and 9pm, such almost always occurred. (My league’s games are typically 7pm to 8:45pm, once weekly, 40 weeks each year, so I’ve experienced several hundred such accurate timing forecasts.) Support is truly exceptional. For the few occasions when I’ve had questions, e-mail has been answered quickly, specifically and thoughtfully. I highly recommend paying for this app—my money has been well spent.

    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!
  • App rating Sep 9, 2017

    By *4.0*
    Enjoyed this App for a few years & find it much better than any other weather app. The video section could be greatly improved with the most current weather that shows time, as well as the day recorded, and more about the weather as well. Many current Worldwide weather events as well as the USA Weather. It also has repetition of the same videos after showing it the first time, when it could be a similar video from the same weather event but from a different point of view, scenery, and source. Whom ever sets these up could do a much better job just by searching the internet as so many people report their whereabouts and how the weather is affecting them in their area. It would be a better radar section if it would include a World Radar section that would be continuous to see how the weather affects each different section of the World.

    I’ll use it once in awhile to mainly plan if I’m going to run outside the next morning or stay inside on the treadmill but it is really hard to find the hourly temp. I can find history, the next few hours, and all sorts of stuff. But not hourly. Every once in awhile I’ll stumble on the hourly weather but then when I go back to try to find it again, I spend so much time that I give up and go to a different weather app where it’s much easier to find weather by the hour. Update: I changed my rating from 3 to 5 star. I got a response from the developer. They made a change/introduced a change to to bottom of the screen where it is much easier to find the weather per hour so you don’t have to go hunting for it. It’s right there. So much easier to find. I am very happy to have this change and very much enjoy being able to use the app. Thank you so much!
  • Do Not Use The Future Radar Jul 14, 2021

    By cookieghost8
    Whatever you do, do not use the future radar. The future radar is not accurate at all. It showed that a thunderstorm would disappear by the time it would hit my area. WRONG. The thunderstorm that is a 5 miles away from my area hits me and brings penny sized hail and flooding rain. Accuweather’s algorithm for using a future radar is terrible. After you get an hour into the future radar mode, it starts broadening out the rain and sometimes exaggerates what you will see. For example, sometimes it says a shower will later turn into a hailstorm but that never happens. Sometimes it will say a thunderstorm will weaken and turn into a shower, but instead it will intensify into a hailstorm. Do not rely on the future radar for anything. All of the other features are pretty accurate. I like how it shows the rain total for the day and the night (could be inaccurate when it comes to spotty thunderstorms). The app is good with only banner ads (at least there is no video ads). I have been using accuweather for 2 years now and I have been satisfied using it, but if you are looking for an accurate future radar I would look somewhere else. Minutecast is very accurate, and I was very impressed when I first saw how accurate it was. This app is one of the first to use a minute by minute system of forecasting and I am very thankful for finding this app on the App Store. - 2 year AccuWeather user 😀

    Fairly good app with a clean UI. Ads are a bit intrusive now but not a problem for the odd check of the weather. The widget for Android works well. However, accuracy is a small issue with the app and more so the widget as it sometimes just doesn't update. Overall, a decent weather app certainly better than other apps out there.
  • Just one little thing Aug 27, 2021

    By Roger J Kuputnick
    Great app. Accurate and simple to use… except when you send out text notices with titles like Drenching Rains Coming. When I click on it it takes me to a page with a white banner on the left that allows me to do all sorts of things like upgrade the app, or review the app like I am doing here, now. The problem I have is that the only way I have found to close this page and get back to the regular app page with the forecast is to turn off my phone and turn it back on. I mean to say that there never is anything here on this page that has anything to do with the title you sent me. Oh, I can go to Channel 13’s website, but I don’t want to go to the website. There is a hurricane in the Gulf of Mexico and I want to look at the forecast. So, I am going to turn off my phone and turn it back on to get control of my phone back, again. Next time I am going to delete the app. I can get weather apps anywhere. I mean pick a TV channel. They all offer weather apps. (Or you could fix the page so a person can tell how to get off of it? Just a thought, but what do I know?)
  • 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.

    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.

  • Last three updates have been downgrades May 19, 2021

    By tj_2019
    I’ve been using this app for years and the radar has always been on point as well as what used to be the minute cast. The last three updates are just OFF, everything used to parallel with what I was experiencing with storms and I could count on by the minute when my anxiety would be relieved. It’s not working that way anymore, the app now shows the storm is almost passed but what I’m hearing and seeing outside doesn’t match at all. I also dislike the chance to the alerts and warnings. There was nothing wrong with the way it was before. The way it is now is just a bunch of colored chunks without a key. Idk maybe I need to look harder, surely there’s something to designate what a maroon chunk is? I’m assuming red is a warning? Just not understanding why you would take something that worked almost perfect compared to the other apps out there and change it.
  • 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.

    I gotta stop updating this app. Instead of bug fixes and improvements, the last several updates have just added more ads that are intrusive and ruin the experience. Full screen pop-up ads, permanent banner ads, ads on the radar screen, blocking some of the radar area, ads as you scroll through the interface. I understand that's how they make money, but it's starting to ruin the experience now. The app itself works great as a weather app, and I've been using it for years now. But excessive ads...
  • Mostly great! Jun 17, 2021

    By Bill_Johnson
    There are tons of weather apps available. The devs description is accurate, but I will tell you my top Pros/Cons. PROS: ~ Love the radar. Gives you an option to view the past or future. ~ A slick “Minute by Minute” wheel that pinpoints precipitation for the next two hours. ~ A ton of features that don’t overwhelm you when launching the app. The basic stuff is clearly and nicely laid out and simple taps/swipes will get you to deeper details if desired. CONS: * The “location services” pin points my house right on the mark. But, the app declares the location is a nearby city instead of the one my house is in. * I have several weather apps that use location services plus my own house thermometer. AccuWeather many times states that it is 4-6 degrees cooler than all the others. * That’s it. Some may feel those are picky things, but it is enough to knock off a star IMHO. Overall, a great app. I was happy to pay the $4 to support the devs and also get rid of the ads. 😄 UPDATE: AccuWeather no longer offers a pay once to get rid of ads. It is now a monthly or yearly fee. Besides costing much more, “family sharing” means nothing now. EVERY family member must pay the on-going fee if you want to get rid of the annoying ads. In other words, my pay once fee does not get grandfathered in. 👎🏻

    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.

    App is great most of the time, hourly & daily forecasts seem to work well. Radar looks great as well. Main issue is the app & widget seem to have a bug where it thinks it's raining but it's obviously not outside, with no rain in sight. Radar shows nothing, hourly forecast shows nothing, yet the main screen and widget say it'll be raining for the next 30 minutes or so. A minor inconvenience but would be a nice bug to get fixed visually.

    The app has been crashing for several days now. I have paid for an "ad-free and more" version, and despite uninstalling and reinstalling the app multiple times over the past 48 hours, the app has not even been able to load itself on clicking. This isn't why I paid for what was claimed to be the best weather app available. I've been patient with the app's steady decline in usability for some time now, but unless something is done soon to set things right, I will be asking for a refund. Edit: Recent updates seem to have fixed the problem.

    The hyperlocal weather app is accurate but the accuracy is starting to decline. It always tells me that there is gonna be a thunderstorm but no. It is the opposite. Over the last updates, the ads have been intrusive. The weather is 80 percent accurate but sometimes shows the wrong prediction. Like ecerytime. The developers should decrease the ads because the app is being used worldwide.
  • 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.

    God awful ads. I've used this app for YEARS. I don't mind a pop-up here and there. I don't mind banner ads at the top and bottom. I like how its set up. I can find what I need. I'm used to it now, so why change? Except the ads. The ads changed. Now I wake up, open the weather to check how the day will be and BOOM!! Loud video. 8 dollars a year is nothing.. but I didn't mind the other ads. This feels like it's pushing us to upgrade and I don't like that. Might be time to switch.
  • 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.

    "My only gripe though is that the widget always defaults to small text regardless of how big I have it, everytime I restart my phone, or the widget restarts; I have to constantly resize it to get it to stretch out again." This was part of my review back in august 2020, and it still has yet to be resolved on my OnePlus 6T. Have no idea if it's the app, or OnePlus, but that's not for me to figure out.

  • 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.

    The daily forecast is fine but the push notification alerts are very misleading! I keep getting alerts that tropical storm Nichols is going to create severe thunderstorms and rain in my area.

  • 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!!

  • 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.

    I don't have a problem with ads personally, apps gotta generate revenue somehow. That said the ads shown for this application are the most frustrating experience. Whole screen ads you cannot dismiss easily because the close ad area is the size of a pixel is terrible design. I'm tired of trying to view the weather just to have my whole screen taken up by a facebook pop-up ad that I cannot close without shutting the entire application down and relaunching. Terrible user experience and design.
  • Terrible and deceptive! Why only landscape on iPad? Sep 11, 2021

    By LeeGeeeeeee
    Just deleted app from my iPad. The web version in web browser looks and works fine. Tired of developers making changes for themselves and not for the users. I quote “The reaction to our changes has been overwhelmingly positive”. What universe do you people live in? Your day jobs must be working on political campaigns. The original accuweather was nice. You built up reviews and now you have changed it into something completely different. You took advantage of Apples flawed review system and your fan base. You can basically create an app and then change it to anything you want with IAP and keep all those previous reviews. You don’t deserve all the stars you have. You should be forced to pull everything and start over. I think I’ll be using DarkSkies more now. Their ui retains a fresh simple approach. The change on the iPhone version is ok but I hate being forced to use an app like this in Landscape. Just another example of making changes for the sake of making changes and I guess job security. The way you had it was perfect. All I had to do was scroll down to see hourly, daily forecasts. It works just fine in portrait on an iPhone with a screen size that’s about a fourth of an iPad Pro but the iPad Pro has to be landscape? Just look at it, there is an acre of dead space on the screen. Ridiculous, arrogant and lazy programming.
  • 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.

    Horrible Full Screen Ads! I get you want ads to increase revenue but these make the app difficult to use. They are more of a hassle. I don't want to figure out how to close the ad just to check the weather. Sometimes while clicking close it just brings me to the ads website. That's really unsafe as well.
  • 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.
  • 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.

    Lowering rating from 2 stars to 1 star. App wildly inaccurate for all of August & September, especially hourly forecasts. Info shown in MinuteCast, current conditions, and hourly sections, almost always contradict each other. For example, as I write this, it's raining outside, but none of the three sections indicate rain. I get that to some degree, this is the nature of weather and all, but this happens all time.

    I'm once again forced to change my review of my favorite weather app back to a 1 star. They've now added extremely intrusive ads that make checking the weather quickly to being a task as an entire, full screen ad will popup on your first click. What a joke. If I'm getting a severe weather alert or tornado warning, the last thing I want is for your garbage ads to add 30 seconds to the time to actually check the warning.
  • 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.
