  • Works great! Jan 16, 2017

    By Momlovesames
    People were complaining about large location icons, fast radar time lapse, etc. Well guess what? There's options to change those in Settings! Just because you're not App Savvy doesn't mean you should give bad ratings and complain. I'm a 47 year-old single mother and if I can figure out what the circular gear icon symbol means and tap it to find the settings you can too! You can also choose map or satellite imagery, the degree of clarity on the coverage of the "clouds" so you can still see what city it is. Change the speed of the playback. How long do you want that red pin with the nice, visible print for the location to stay there? 10 seconds or 1 minute? I think there were 4 options. Those are just the ones I looked at before the "please rate the app" popped up. I really like it and find it functional, accurate (so far), and not too difficult for a grandmother to use. If you can't figure it out, get your kids to help. 😊

    I'm updating this review again. Although I LOVE many of the changes I don't like that I can't just enter my zip code or better yet my address and have it save my location. When I type in my full address located in Indiana, it pulls up a city in California! You couldn't get further away. There's no doubt they've made some great changes, but this location issue has been there from the beginning. I have a Samsung Galaxy Note 5g Ultra. Please work on getting the search to work correctly.

    I had been using free version for a long time. As a truck driver, being able to look a few hours ahead to track radar was very helpful to timing travel in mountainous areas. Since i loaded an update, it's worthless. The radar only shows for a short time prior to present. It no longer shows any future projections for radar movement. Way to ruin a good resource for weather info. Certainly not considering a subscription now. Edit: I upped my rating; info provided made app useful to me again.

  • Reliable Apr 4, 2017

    By Who luvs ya baby
    I've had this app for sometime now. I must admit I was skeptical and doubted a weather app. Mainly because there are so many out there that well just plain stink. This one however is reliable and provides several tools to effectively forecast the weather. After almost 2 year I am very pleased with the app! Updated- 4/3/17, I've noticed that since about the December of 2016, the accuracy of forecast has been slipping. I check this app three or four times a day, and there have been times where the weather has totally changed in the matter of hours. This isn't isolated dates, it's occurring often, I wonder if they switched to a sub par monitoring system or something like that? If I am confusing you, let me put it this way. The iPhone weather app has been more reliable over this same period.

    Very confusing to use. No easy interface and cannot tell what's going on with the map. My free weather apps are 10x better and easy-to-use unlike this one. Also very sneaky billing thought I was getting a discount for 83cents a month, clicked and it was for an annual subscription. I would rather pay 83 cents a month since the annual is too high.

  • Good idea, poor delivery May 27, 2017

    By ttabacchi
    I have to say that after using this app compared to the multitude of other weather notification apps that I have, I am not impressed at all. I live in Savannah, GA where we get some pretty bad weather from time to time and I like to know when that weather is on my back door. Just recently we had a mild tornado outbreak, as well as a slew of severe thunderstorms. Of all of the apps that I have for weather with the notifications turned on, NOAA was the very last app to give me a notification that the storm was happening, and at times that notification was almost an hour after the storm had passed. If this was the only app that I had giving me notifications, my family and myself could have wound up seriously injured or worse if just one of those tornado producing storms had hit my house and I was relying on this app. The sad thing is that this is a paid app, that I purchased for a little bit of reassurance during bad weather to give me some piece of mind and the only thing it has done is make me more weary about severe weather in my area. And for anyone that reads this and is wondering, this has not been the only time that the app has been extremely delayed in letting me know that there was bad weather approaching. It happened in April, as well as January, during the tornado outbreak across GA. So basically, it's not a fluke.

    Have used this app every now and then for free. Opened it today and it is now requiring you to pay, the fine print is sketchy and will bill your Google play even if you uninstall the app which I was going to do asap as I am not paying for this app, it's good but not that good. I went to try to find out how to ensure I am unsubscribed....even though I never subscribed or agreed to pay for the app...still trying to figure it out, very angry at the trickery involved for them to extort money

  • Storm spotter, not a fan Jul 11, 2018

    By Lge501
    I'm a certified storm spotter and have chased some of the largest storms on record for the Oklahoma area. The notifications are great. The radar, not so great. I use the free app of weatherbug that seems to be more accurate. I still chase storms in Las Vegas and have noticed that weatherbug shows more information and more accurate information. Looking at the radar on both apps, I prefer weatherbug. I've missed a few storms due to the inaccurate radar information. They seem to be behind. It all could be accredited to what your use to. I'm use to radar that shows everything at realtime. Hook echo is very difficult to read on this app. I've been in the center of a large storm and pulled up NOAA. The radar said the storm wasn't over my location. I pulled up weatherbug and it showed me otherwise. The accuracy was much better and easier to read. I’ve also compared the radar to several other sources. Including The Weather Channel website and app, Apple weather, and AccuWeather and weather bug . The NOAA map will tell you the system is weaker than it actually is. Not good!!!

    The developer of this app seems super shady to me because they increased the subscription price to $5.99 recently and then immediately on the day it took effect reduced it back to $4.99. How many times is this going to happen? This behavior makes it look like the price will be $4.99 but who knows if they'll just bump it again when it's convenient for upcoming subscriptions and then bump it back down again right after. It feels deceitful.

  1. Simple & effective UI! Completely customizable real-time radar gives you everything you need to know at a single glance
  2. Know what will happen a week ahead of time! Use super accurate 24-hour & 7-day weather forecast for any location you want
  3. It's a perfect fit! Receive live-updates via the resizable widget that will go perfectly with any screen size

I'm already paying so I don't have to see stupid ads (and I do mean stupid). Did my account get kicked out, or what? Now I have to figure out how to figure this out.

  • Tornado Alley user/fan with suggestions May 26, 2019

    By Tornado Alley Parent
    Like a lot of people who live in Tornado Alley, I have multiple notification systems. I use a phone call service for my home location, but I really like this app for: - Ability to set alerts for multiple locations (son’s summer camp, sister’s town, clients’ business locations etc.) - I live in a rural location and like being able to see the “big picture” of tornado-warned storms in my region. During a recent multi-day outbreak, I set a temporary alert on towns southwest of mine to get extra lead time on severe weather that might head my way. My suggestions would be to allow users to control which specific types of severe weather notifications sound an alert, I.e. ON for tornado warnings but OFF for tornado watches, per location. Right now there are about four types grouped together. When monitoring multiple locations (I.e. hospital clients), I really just want to know about tornado warnings, not watches & severe thunderstorm warnings. But when I’m monitoring my kids’ locations, I want to know all of the above. It’s hard to keep track of the important tornado warnings when the lock screen pops up & layers 10 notifications for renewed watches, T-Storm warnings, etc. Keep up the good work. Thanks.

  • Great app Mar 3, 2017

    By Pilot/CFI - Denton
    I just recently downloaded this app because another app that I really liked - ahem "Storm" ahem - is no longer ad free. I am a corporate pilot and freelance flight instructor so having weather information readily available at my fingertips comes in very handy especially when I'm sitting at some Podunk airport out in the middle of nowhere. Just a few suggestions: 1.) add aviation layers such as AIRMETS, SIGMETS, and Convective SIGMETS and 2.) allow us to change the color of the saved pin locations. The purple pinhead tends to blend into some of the warning/advisory boxes. 3.) have a section for textual weather discussions and synopsis. All in all though this is a great app. I have yet to find an all inclusive weather app that does it all, but this one has a good layout and is easy to use.

  • Works Just Great in Tornado Alley May 20, 2018

    By Totally Essex up
    I got it because I live in Tornado Alley. In the Spring we have many severe thunderstorms per month and sometimes as many as 2 tornado warnings a week. I like that the radar comes right up and I can get an idea what is coming my way. Also I have found that the alert on the app comes on just about the same time as our county tornado alert siren just down the block. If you go to the settings you can adjust many options to fit your needs. I travel lots and it alerts me to weather in my location without having to reset it all the time. You can also set alerts for several towns so you know what's happening weather wise with out of town children or vacation homes.

  • Great graphics, easy to use, but...... Sep 21, 2017

    ...But the precipitation forecast is confusing. For instance, the forecast summary for Tuesday shows "Thunderstorms" but the rain chance is 0% for Tuesday. Another day is summarized with the word "Sunny" but the rain chance is shown as 21%. Also interested to know why the precip forecast is frequently given with numbers like 2% or 38%. Since when has weather reporting achieved that kind of accuracy, especially when the-summarized weather for a given day frequently conflicts with the chances of precipitation?

    Loved it, except it's missing some important data points for me. I paid for this app for about a year, and I loved the radar and accurate forecasting. Except Id like to see more data points like; sunrise/sunset times, tides/water temp, uv index, and more. I switched to TWC app, and while their radar and forecasting accuracy may not be par with this app, it has the data points I like to see all in one app.

  • A good app.....for the most part Jun 11, 2018

    By therelybare
    I really like the usefulness of this app. I use it to keep track of storms and all of the watches/warnings. I travel a lot and I like having information about the areas I visit. That being said, today wasn’t as pleasant as usual. With a big storm coming in, while traveling, I got about 30 updates from almost every community I passed through. It got to be a joke every time another notification popped up. Yet another town with a Flood Watch, yippee! After a while I wanted to chuck the phone out of the window. Thank you for the 20 or so Flash Flood watches today, as well! It seemed we were getting an Flood watch alert in about every town from Johnson City TN to Atlanta GA. Granted, we travelled the Blue Ridge Pkwy to Asheville so when we’d get a signal, there was a new alert. I don’t know what I expected to get in the following mode, but I guess I didn’t expect to get all of those alerts. Unfortunately, all of the notifications from that day are gone and I have no idea how to get them back.

  • Always 76 degrees? May 4, 2018

    By Asdelia
    I used to love this app, and it always worked perfectly. Tracking storms as they come and go is really useful, as are the flooding alerts and such that are given for the area you’re looking at. However, for the past two months, the temperature shown in large font for my location has been incorrect. When it’s 30 degrees with a high of 40 degrees, the main number at the top is always in the 70s. Luckily, the hourly information further down is correct. It’s just frustrating to not know the correct temperature at a glance anymore. The exact location where this behavior is observed: Washington DC area. Main number at top says 70-80 degrees and sunny. Actual weather (at the time of the review) was 30-40 degrees and cloudy/sunny/rainy (occurred systematically regardless of weather). Currently, it reports 81 degrees sunny when the weather is more like 70 degrees and cloudy. Again, the hourly details are correct. It is only the top level number/image that has an error.

  • Beautiful graphics, but slow May 23, 2019

    By geojen_
    A squall line just passed over my area and I was looking out for tornado watches/warnings using this app and twitter. The storm got really strong and I thought there must have been a tornado watch even though I didn’t see it on the app. I saw the warning on twitter a full minute and a half to two minutes faster than on the app thanks to capital weather gang retweeting the national weather service tornado page. Luckily my area was fine, but if it wasn’t, those two minutes could’ve made a big difference. Also it’s great to see the progression of storms in the radar over the course of the last 30 minutes, but when the storm is happening, you really don’t need that much info—you just need to know what’s happening now. Would be nice if you could narrow in on the last 10 minutes. Maybe that could be a setting?

You can customize those informations by going on: Settings -> Customize Layout and there you have a option to add maximum 6 infos. I asked developer to increase that limit from 6 to 9.

  • Some weakness May 27, 2018

    By JoeGriffin
    I was using the Weather Underground Storm app which the Weather Channel has now ruined and I’m looking for something as close to that as possible. I downloaded some free ones from the App Store that were not satisfactory so I purchased yours. The graphics are very weak and the ability to look forward needs to be 5 hours and not 1, I always liked the 50 miles circle feature too but the main thing this storm chaser liked was the tornado signature with a triangle and also you could look at a particular storms and its intensity and it would give you all the towns in its path and the time it would be there. Add those and I will spread the word for you.

  • 1 star by comparison to other noaa radar apps Jul 24, 2017

    By Serenityx1234029483828
    If another noaa radar app wasn't out there offering heaps more functionality (for a similar price) then I might give this app more stars. Currently I can not find a feature in this app that offers layouts for a temperature map, wind speed, water temperature, and even a storm path layout, as is available in another app similar to this one. All I see is the option to view information for specific locations by entering/tapping around a location. The only layout I can find is storm coverage (by layout I dont mean satellite view..) Sad to see this app charging people over 4$ (3.99 at 30% off??) for what? Notification functionality? On the other hand the widget and notification features are a strong point in this app.. But notifications require location services to be ALWAYS ON and as you see on first opening the app their is a big fat privacy star next to this. If your fine with your location being used for ad content then you might not consider this a con. Anyways I hope apple doesn't decide to hide this under the thousand or so other reviews this app has like it does with all my reviews.

    The app installs a screen that sets up auto three day subscription purchase or a trial auto renewal. You cannot back out of this screen...need to reboot. Based on the support team response I am clarifying my review. I installed an app which indicated no charge. Launching the app I get a screen which forces me to subscribe unless I reboot. I will be charged in 3 days for what was supposed to be a free app. So after this deception why should I believe cancellation would work? Buyer beware.
