    1. Get immediate push notifications for tornadoes, flash floods, severe thunderstorms, snow storms, and more without having to open the app
    2. Walk to work, or take a cab? Radar updates every 10 minutes give you wind speed and chance of precipitation to keep you up to date
    3. Fully customizable HD map overlays: for radar, satellite, cloud cover, and precipitation, with adjustable opacity and loop speed

    An extremely accurate and exceptionally customizable. I cannot stand when a weather app uses a basic bright white plain map for the area without options to change it. This one has heaps and their customer service is spectacular as well. *i had a bad review bc the app kept asking for further payment. I thought this was an app issue but I was politely directed to Google play support instead where I had my problems solved. Their wording and response time was impressive and extremely polite.

    Love it b/c it let’s me look at the weather in other cities before I finalize my travel plans so I will know what the weather will be where I’m going and the outlook for several days which makes it easy to make decisions to still go or postpone due to possible bad weather forecasted. For example I was planning a trip to the Mountain here in Asheville, North Carolina and found that the weather was not going to be in my favor due to snow. First, I’m disabled and can’t take chances on being stuck somewhere I’m not able to get back home cause they shut down the highway when bad weather comes. Second, where I currently reside in North Carolina we get plenty of bad weather from snow, sleet, freezing rain and blizzard (due to nor Easters). I don’t take chances at home so why would I want to take chances somewhere else. I can’t take a risk of falling b/c of several medical issues that restrict my ability to get around (both knees been replaced and currently waiting on date for lower spine surgery) along with several other medical issues that restrict my ability to just go and take unnecessary chances. This app helps me make smart decisions that will best help me protect my health. Love it. It’s a 5 Star App. Highly Recommend you get it if you don’t already have it.

    Update rate needs to reflect the technology of today. Not technology of 30 years ago. General use is ok. Your testing department needs to be listened to in all groups including validation and verification. Zooming out and in should have button features on the active screen interface. Weather update of 30 minutes is really taking progress backwards instead of forward.
  • Better than the full website for fast information Aug 15, 2019

    By Mikeane1
    I have used the ‘full’ NOAA website for three decades to track hurricanes and watch for local bad weather. I have not used the app for hurricanes, yet, but the local maps for the radar loop are problematic, even with internet service, on the iPhone. They are almost useless for accurate local data on tornadoes (still great for tracking larger storms and rapidly moving fronts) due to data limits, particularly heavy local cell system usage during tornadoes. This app trims links to the massive database at NOAA for the power of a shorter ‘history’ (4 passed tracks to 7 on the full website, or 35-40 minutes instead of 70 minutes), but the ‘loss’ of tracking information is minor and FAST current data is more useful during sudden weather and for driving. It was invaluable during a recent trip to New Orleans to time leave times and plan stops to avoid pop up thunderstorms. Nothing but good things found with app over NOAA main website and local news weather apps (lots of adds with the ‘locals’ and websites are problematic to find using iPhone when traveling).

    PLEASE provide separate "RADAR" and "WATCHES & WARNINGS" displays like the MAJORITY of other weather apps. During severe weather conditions having only a single view for Radar, Watches & Warnings becomes TOO clutter and difficult to view. Hence during severe weather conditions 'have' to use the free Weather Channel app that came with my smartphone.

    Update: Another option I’d like to have is the ability to turn on alerts but turn on/off alert overlays on the map. This app presents all the information I’m looking for in a simple layout. With other apps radar is secondary, this app makes it primary but very easy to then get detailed weather info. Here are two improvements I’d recommend. Add selectable zoom levels for the radar at launch. The current setting is too focused and I have to zoom out to see the bigger picture. Maybe 50, 100, 300 miles out from location. Second I’d like the sunrise/sunset to be “smart”. After sunset display the sunrise time. After sunrise display the sunset time. No need for separate icons. Thanks for a great weather app!

  • BUYER BEWARE Terrible - Bait and Switch - Not Free - Deceptive Sep 2, 2019

    By Emilee3
    It says it’s free in the App Store, but then you can’t even open the App until you sign up for a paid subscription. Really shady considering I think many people come to the app looking to track hurricanes that may threaten their lives and the makers of this app are trying to take advantage of them. Just do the right thing and list that it has a cost up front. It does have a ONE WEEK free trial option but that is linked to auto renew in 1 WEEK at $2.99 PER WEEK and I think the free trial doesn’t even include SHOWING the hurricanes anywhere, you would need to purchase the PREMIUM subscription for that, but you don’t find out any of that until after you sign up for auto renew. Also BUYER BEWARE, if you decide not to get the free trial and you leave the app, but then go back later thinking fine, I’ll just do the one week trial and remember to cancel in one week if the app is not good, the RATE HAS CHANGED to a 3 DAY TRIAL that auto renews in 3 DAYS and NOW AT $3.99 A WEEK! Super shady and sneaky. Most deceptive app I’ve ever come across. Seems like these people are trying to take advantage of people afraid of an impending potentially tragic hurricane and seems exactly like a form of price gouging, and just low low low business tactics. It’s incredibly shameful.

    DON'T INSTALL! It's just a free trial, then it'll start charging you for services. Shameful! You'd think they would just want to help people. Just saw your comment and no, there's no option to simply use it for free. It says it's free for 3 days, then I will be automatically charged monthly. There is no button to select TOTALLY FREE alerts. I truly feel this is entrapment. Why isn't there just a totally free button? Just sayin.
  • App tricks you into paying upfront Sep 22, 2018

    By santiagoqr1
    Downloaded the app, authorized the download with my fingerprint, then opened the app and was immediately prompted by another screen asking for my fingerprint, right after I said that I didn’t want to pay, that I just wanted the free version, they don’t clarify that the free version is 7 days free, and after that is paid. When it prompted me the second time for my fingerprint, I never thought I’d be paying a week later, since I selected the free version. I know they’re going to say “but it says on the screen that it’s not free” thing is, they use smaller fonts and on the bottom, making it deceiving and impossible to see at first glance. Also, NOAA is a government agency, pretty much the “Weather Bureau” (as you used to be called) you’re funded by taxes, literally “for the people by the people”, why do you charge people for an app, that only mirrors something that it’s already paid for with tax dollars, I know there’s app developers and support and everything, but the department doesn’t live off these payments through the AppStore, your department has an anual budget, so why, WHY, why charge people for something that’s already paid for, AND SUCH AN OUTRAGEOUS AMOUNT!?

  • Weather channel 5* beats this apps Full-screen pop-ads, Mar 23, 2018

    By Sundaeluv
    This would be a 5 star app if it werent for full screen ads that come up in seconds after opening. And weather details that slide open/closed/open/closed so cant read the forecast! Weather Channel app opens to beautiful scene, gives forecast and if scroll we can see radar, week ahead, etc. Sorry developers, you still after all these months cant get this NOAA app to function well. Instead of creatively having ads within the app page the pop-up ads cover full screen, often X to close ad is hidden, cant get ad to close. After getting to page the weather report that pops out of the right side goes away before you can read it, weather is gone and wont come back until you keep clicking, dragging etc. or close app and open again, but then you get another page covering ad again. Shame the app developers dont know how to build an app that has ads creatively in them like so many other apps. Deleted this again, I love the Weather channel app SO much better!

  • No way in without subscription May 10, 2021

    By alibelblue
    I used to get lightning strike alerts and it was great to keep my kids safe inside when I’d get them. I noticed lately that wasn’t working, shrugged it off. There’s a big storm rolling through and I went to check the app, also thinking maybe I needed to update a setting for the lighting notifications but couldn’t get into the app. Upon opening the app was prompted to subscribe or do a free trial. When I tapped the button to not do the trail I saw the “continue” button and tapped it thinking I’d then be taken into the free site. Nope. I was redirected to the App Store to subscribe for $2.99 a week. There’s no button or bypass to get into the actual app without subscribing. I’ve seen customer service responding to others complaining of the same thing saying we can bypass it but there is no, single place that allows me to do so. I’m so disappointed in this underhanded practice to gain subscribers. If I had been alerted “hey, we’re going to make this a subscription-based app after this month to cover costs” I would have subscribed. But with this attempt at tricking people? No way.

    Trial version of premium account says it will be available free for 3 days , but when we continue to try out the premium version, instead of waiting for 3days, it automatically deducts subscription charges for a whole month in the very next moment.
  • Severe Weather App Review Sep 23, 2017

    By Mr. Cochroach
    Being in Puerto Rico, it is necessary to have a severe weather app for the voracious Atlantic hurricane season. With the recent hurricanes Irma and Maria, this app had to be in handy. However, this app is full of ads that pop up. Usually I close them, but this time around when hurricane Maria was closing in on the island, I left the app running continuously, while watching the dark clouds and squally weather coming off of the Caribbean. Little did I know, an advertisement popped up while I was gone. I came back a few hours later to find that the phone was acting up. I got the notice that a virus had been encrypted into the phone. The awful advertisement opened by itself and virused my phone. Little did I know that the eyewall was an hour away and my pet bird was outside. I had no way of knowing because of the viral malware, and the winds picked up to 130 before I knew it and my bird was gone. Please find a way to filter these malicious ads out of your application, because this situation was completely unwarrented.
  • Not a good start Jul 22, 2018

    By MrPete56
    I just downloaded this app because my old weather app just changed drastically for the worse. Reading these reviews makes me think the root data provider for all these types of apps just changed how it does business. That being said, I signed up for the one week free trial that will automatically renew after the free trial is over. When signing up, the price was stated as nine dollars and change a year. What they don’t tell you is that is only one of three options. Nine something a year, four something per quarter and three dollars a week. Guess which “plan” you are automatically renewed to? The three dollars a week. If you aren’t paying attention, you will have spent the price of a year subscription in under a month. This information was hidden in the entire sign up process. I wouldn’t have bothered to look if Apple hadn’t sent me an eMail spelling out the terms. I think there must be quite a few complaints for Apple to do that.

    2. Walk to work, or take a cab? Radar updates every 10 minutes give you wind speed and chance of precipitation to keep you up to date

    Wow!! What great graphics and info!! I already feel safer. We’ve endured 2 major floods, here in Robeson County NC, just in the past 5 years. Here in rural America, the weather is a major factor in what goes on , what gets accomplished on a day to day basis. Thanks people for a job well done! PS. We Natives Never worshipped the sun(son), the created,...We worship the Father YAH, the Creator. But, when colonialism took place, another belief was instituted, instilled,,FORCED upon the Natives. Our spiritual roots go all the way back to the Old Hebrewic way referred to in the Old Testament. For some reference; ‘The History of the American Indians’ James Adair, first published in 1775. On the other hand, see Alexander Hislop’s ‘The Two Babylons’ for some very interesting details of how the practices in Catholicism and Christianity are traced all the way back to Ancient Babylon.

    This app is great for tornado conditions because you can see where the front is. The sirens where I used to live were always 5-10 minutes late, and this was one of my go to apps to help me cope w no reliable sirens. Now I use it for the same reason in a new state where we get good warnings but we get more frequent and worse tornadoes. I would love to turn on ONLY a loud tornado alert in the app with no other alerts, if the developers could give the kind of specificity in settings.
  • Next level Dec 30, 2019

    By KC daily driver
    Started using WU for about 10 years ago to track weather conditions and historical data for major construction sites. When the App went mainstream it was by far the best ad based weather app. The recent updates to the function was difficult to navigate because they do give a lot of information. Almost to much, but the recent update to the radar are next level details. We rely on this app when we make plans to drive over the mountain pass in Colorado and it has always preformed well. Give it a chance and you will be amazed at how much information you can get from a ad based free app that can do circles around the closest competition.

  • NOAA app for my iPhone is okay Apr 7, 2019

    By Ranchitaa
    This app could use a little bit of an upgrade. The weather “alert” app is not working since I rely heavily for the alert for thunderstorms and flooding. We have cattle and we have a creek. We can loose some of our cattle if our creek gets flooded. So I’m constantly looking at the weather to be prepared to move cattle when we need to. But, the alert would be very helpful and would be less stressful for me since I’m too busy to keep watching for the weather..... 😑 However, I dislike the fact that there is another weather app you can purchase for $4.99 a month just to know where the lightning strikes are at, when I already have the NOAA app. I wouldn’t mind paying $0.99 a month for the extra’s not $4.99.
  • Pretty good app Sep 13, 2020

    By Mike George - Lucia Falls, WA
    I like the app in general very much. My suggest is to include a LEGEND page or pop up, that at a glance shows the different icons and what they mean. Without having to go into the side bar for setting parameters. Sometimes you just want to be reminded what an icon or feature does and is used for, and at a glance. Also, there should be some instruction on what some of the actions of the icons signify. Like when an icon is touched and it disappears. Otherwise some of the features are fantastic. My suggestion is to have a home page for each user, that will always load with a set of preset parameters. It kind of does this now I think, but not consistently. So to recap, it just needs more user friendly controls.
  • Love/Hate Jan 11, 2020

    By Lyla Garity
    My trusty weather app when it works. I don’t know if mine updated and now it’s weird though.. so we’re on Tornado Watch, my husband’s phone got the notification but I didn’t. I checked the app, we’re in a high risk area but mine showed no warnings besides lightning danger where my husband’s showed all the warnings. Mine finally kicked in and showed them but I’m a stay at home parent with no storm shelter so I need to know right away. When it’s working for me I love it, when traveling I get local notifications, can see storm movements, and report better accuracies in local weather- like no it’s not drizzling there’s heavy rain. Including Local pollen count would make this better.
  • Siri shortcut doesn’t work May 25, 2019

    By 194922
    I really like this app, but I have 3 locations saved. (Toledo Ohio Brandon Florida and Ruskin Florida ) l recorded on Siri shortcuts, (show radar for Brandon,Florida) but when I ask Siri to show me the radar for Brandon, Florida, it always goes to the Toledo forecast and only gives me a verbal forecast. It won’t bring anything up from the NOAA Radar app at all. Nothing that I do, will get Siri to bring up what I want. I have a similar weather app and that one works fine, but your app is better and the one that I would like to use. But if I can’t get it to work, then I’ll have to stay with the app that works. I hope that you can fix the issue with the app and that I can use it with my Siri shortcuts.
  • Why does my location show the wrong city now? Nov 4, 2018

    By Really??123987
    This is my favorite weather app. I have a few because my little town is kind of a microcosm by itself so I take the best 3 out of 5. This app used to be super accurate, even showing my house temp at pinpoint location when it was different than town. However, within the last month or so it started showing Aurora instead of Bennett for the house location. I don’t care about Aurora’s weather. Tried to reinstall but still Aurora at my house and Bennett as the town location. Had to delete it finally and get a different app. Maybe I did something to make that happen but can’t figure out what. I already miss it 😞.
  • Decent, but pop ups prevent data loads Jul 16, 2017

    By Phynn
    It is a pretty decent app, intuitive and easy to use. But it's only four stars because it seems like you get mor pop ups than weather info. Have a tornado warning? They'll let you know after you have to click through a pop up ad and two subsequent screens about various other apps. Also, the pop ups prevent the app data from updating. So it will still read data and radar from three hours ago, unless I force quit the app. With this many pop ups, I just don't want to pay them monthly subscription fees. They probably make much more off the constant ads.
  • Lag time in reporting accuracy Nov 10, 2020

    By smt1778
    I live in Florida so keeping tabs on hurricanes is very important. The problem I have is that this app is several hours behind in reporting hurricane trajectory forecast info. I may check it just before bed and notice that this app reports something totally different than the weather channel and the local news and then wake up 8 hours later and find out that this app has changed to reflect what the news stations say. We’re talking about several hundred mile distances here. And this happens all the time. If the app reflected CURRENT data on hurricanes I’d give it 5 stars.
  • Don’t subscribe Aug 7, 2020

    By Naterfromkater
    I am a CDL driver and I thought it would be a good idea to get this app as sort of a heads up of what I’m driving towards. I completely regret getting a subscription to this app! First off, it’s not as accurate a radar as I would’ve hoped. Second off, I tried to unsubscribe to this app, and it will not let me. I’ve emailed the company with out any answers in return. Because I refuse to pay for some thing I do not want now all of my Apple services are suspended until I update my payment. I can’t even get into my emails or download new apps. This is so stupid! I wish I could give this app a -5 stars!
  • Edit of Review comments-Latest update Jan 10, 2020

    By farmjack
    This has been my favorite weather app and still is. I have a subscription and this latest update still leaving me somewhat skeptical. The 2 inch blank space and missing setting buttons I spoke about after app installed was on my iPad. Once I turned iPad off and back on, it thankfully CORRECTED itself! Since most actions are touchscreen actions, not sure I like a balloon popping up every time I touch or move the map changing my local settings. Then, I have to go back and reset local info at the bottom, which reduces screen view on iphone.

    Update rate needs to reflect the technology of today. Not technology of 30 years ago. General use is ok. Your testing department needs to be listened to in all groups including validation and verification. Zooming out and in should have button features on the active screen interface. Weather update of 30 minutes is really taking progress backwards instead of forward.

    PLEASE provide separate "RADAR" and "WATCHES & WARNINGS" displays like the MAJORITY of other weather apps. During severe weather conditions having only a single view for Radar, Watches & Warnings becomes TOO clutter and difficult to view. Hence during severe weather conditions 'have' to use the free Weather Channel app that came with my smartphone.

    While I find the pollen report helpful, by adding it to the app, the wind report was removed. I need the wind report. Why can't info be added without removing important info? I pay for this app.
  • This app has become a big mess. Jul 12, 2017

    By Twentdoggo
    So, apparently this app now has a subscription you can subscribe to when they have an already one time pay premium app. Why? Why would you do this? Are you getting rid of the premium app? If so, why? There was nothing wrong with that app. This just makes the whole NOAA Weather Radar apps a whole mess. Also, this app claims to be the only app to show all NWS service alerts and warnings on the radar. I'm pretty sure MyRadar, Storm, and many other apps show alerts like this, and show more alerts than what this app shows. I was really debating weather to shell out and buy the premium app, but these reasons make me not want to. Updates come in every 3-6 months and the developers apparently don't really care about the consumer. You guys really have made a bad first impression with me. This app doesn't deserve the stars it already has.
  • Very good, but slow to update and dodgy on temps Jun 28, 2019

    By fredr1c
    This app does everything it says it will do. However I’ve had a couple of occasions where the app’s temperature readings both current and predicted don’t agree with other sources for the same location or my own thermometer. These disagreements are wide in scope and long in duration — 7 - 10 degrees high or low, and they can last several days or more. So I can’t trust it for vacation planning, for example, without a double-check — something I learned by experience. It’s off by 7 degrees right now for my home location. For alerts, it will leave old expired alerts in place on the map even as it talks about new alerts elsewhere. So while it works very well and I’m a monthly subscriber I cannot recommend this app wholeheartedly until NOAA fixes these issues.
  • Like it, but accuracy is good for a laugh. Feb 6, 2020

    By Huneynutjex
    For the most part, I really like this app. It usually does what it's supposed to, but sometimes it doesn't. Occasionally a temperature prediction will be way off. Like tonight it says it will be 39 at 7 pm, 32 at 9 pm and 39 at 11 pm. Possible? Sure. Likely to drop 7 degrees then go back up in the middle of the night? No. So far the off predictions have been so off it looks like an obvious glitch and I throw them out. But it makes me grateful that there are other free weather apps out there so I can get a more accurate forecast somewhere else and ignore (our laugh at) these ones. Update: I got a response from the support team and have shared more detailed info with them. Hopefully this will be resolved soon🙂 very impressed at their speedy response!
  • Consistently Inaccurate Oct 14, 2018

    By Jbasangel
    I don’t know why people say it isn’t free. Minus a few features I have yet to pay for general rain information. Although it gives a general idea of the weather with some accuracy, it consistently is off by several hundred miles. What I mean is that it will predict my town as being in the middle of a storm with heavy rain fall when in reality the system passes several hours south of us and we may see some overcast but no rain at all. On occasion it will be almost right with its forecast but for the most part it is what I call “3 star iffy.” But definitely free minus a few features and ads aren’t so frustrating. Just close them and then view the weather....the slightly inna irate but generally ok prediction of the weather.
  • Good Design But Not the NWS Forecast May 28, 2020

    By DCup888
    I chose this app and paid for the year subscription because I thought it would give me the National Weather Service (NWS) forecast, in addition to the radar, since it has NOAA in the name. The app is well-designed and has a lot of nice features. However, when I compare the NWS forecast for my location to the forecast in the app, they aren’t the same which is disappointing to me. I got rid of my old weather app because I felt that the weather predications it gave me weren’t as good as NWS forecasts. So now to see that this app is also not providing the NWS forecast is a big disappointment, especially after I paid for the year subscription. I guess I should have looked into it more before purchasing.
  • It’s okay, but there are better apps that are free Aug 26, 2019

    By Tracemo
    I got this and decided to try it out in comparison to another weather app (weather 9). I didn’t see much of a difference until today. I open NOAA app to check out a potential hurricane brewing in the Caribbean. On the radar it didn’t show it. It did show it when I had to switch over to cloud coverage. The Hurricane tracking feature costs extra, as well as other features. I switched over to Weather 9 app and it showed the hurricane tracking for free without me having to turn the feature on. And that is what sealed the deal for me. I am now deleting NOAA’s app and will use Weather 9 for my primary storm tracking from my phone.
  • Didn’t notify me of weather watches for my area Apr 9, 2020

    By Tennesseemtgirl
    I downloaded this app 4/8/20 because they were calling for bad weather where I live. My local news issued a severe thunder storm watch earlier but there were tornado watches out in west Tennessee. I wanted to be sure if we were issued one I would know it. However I received no alerts. I thought it was supposed to sound a alarm but I don’t know if you have to subscribe to the premium service or not to receive that . I wouldn’t think you would. So I’m totally bummed out over it & don’t know if I will keep the app. I thought that noaa was supposed to keep you informed on things like that. Sorry for the long review

  • Weather channel 5* beats this apps Full-screen pop-ads, Mar 23, 2018

    By Sundaeluv
    This would be a 5 star app if it werent for full screen ads that come up in seconds after opening. And weather details that slide open/closed/open/closed so cant read the forecast! Weather Channel app opens to beautiful scene, gives forecast and if scroll we can see radar, week ahead, etc. Sorry developers, you still after all these months cant get this NOAA app to function well. Instead of creatively having ads within the app page the pop-up ads cover full screen, often X to close ad is hidden, cant get ad to close. After getting to page the weather report that pops out of the right side goes away before you can read it, weather is gone and wont come back until you keep clicking, dragging etc. or close app and open again, but then you get another page covering ad again. Shame the app developers dont know how to build an app that has ads creatively in them like so many other apps. Deleted this again, I love the Weather channel app SO much better!
  • Severe Weather App Review Sep 23, 2017

    By Mr. Cochroach
    Being in Puerto Rico, it is necessary to have a severe weather app for the voracious Atlantic hurricane season. With the recent hurricanes Irma and Maria, this app had to be in handy. However, this app is full of ads that pop up. Usually I close them, but this time around when hurricane Maria was closing in on the island, I left the app running continuously, while watching the dark clouds and squally weather coming off of the Caribbean. Little did I know, an advertisement popped up while I was gone. I came back a few hours later to find that the phone was acting up. I got the notice that a virus had been encrypted into the phone. The awful advertisement opened by itself and virused my phone. Little did I know that the eyewall was an hour away and my pet bird was outside. I had no way of knowing because of the viral malware, and the winds picked up to 130 before I knew it and my bird was gone. Please find a way to filter these malicious ads out of your application, because this situation was completely unwarrented.
  • Not a good start Jul 22, 2018

    By MrPete56
    I just downloaded this app because my old weather app just changed drastically for the worse. Reading these reviews makes me think the root data provider for all these types of apps just changed how it does business. That being said, I signed up for the one week free trial that will automatically renew after the free trial is over. When signing up, the price was stated as nine dollars and change a year. What they don’t tell you is that is only one of three options. Nine something a year, four something per quarter and three dollars a week. Guess which “plan” you are automatically renewed to? The three dollars a week. If you aren’t paying attention, you will have spent the price of a year subscription in under a month. This information was hidden in the entire sign up process. I wouldn’t have bothered to look if Apple hadn’t sent me an eMail spelling out the terms. I think there must be quite a few complaints for Apple to do that.

    The radar works well, lots of overlay options. But not very useful otherwise. They just had an update to include a rain tracker which I was excited to see, but they neglected to tell you where that feature is or how to use it? I still don't know. I got an alert saying it was new, opened the app and everything is the same. Another gripe is I went to contact them via the help menu and tapping on "contact us" and it just copies your phone info to clipboard? What?
  • Full of dark patterns Feb 9, 2020

    By appstoreaccount1
    This app is not actually developed by, for, or associated with NOAA. When you first open it, it asks you to either start a 7-day trial or purchase a $20 subscription, and has a disclaimer that the trial will autorenew-- there's no obvious way to exit, and it won't let you into the app! If you try and go back to it later, it will work, but you will constantly be interrupted by fullscreen ads to upgrade, or dialogs to download their other apps. It wasn't like this before; I used this app to help plan my way through storms when I drove across the country. I don't what changed for them. All of this being said, this app is actually useful but very annoying and from the responses to other reviews the developer seems 100% fine with that.
  • Too annoying to be useful Sep 10, 2017

    By Richard1252
    I'm sure this app offers a lot. But in the first few minutes of use it froze twice, necessitating shutdown and restart. It constantly bombards me with ads and popups—unacceptable when trying to access urgent weather information. The developers responded to a similar criticism by saying one can eliminate the ads by getting the paid version. My question to them is, why would I consider giving them money when the trial version is so buggy? I made the decision to delete it when one popup opened a browser window displaying a virus alert. I don't know whether a virus is even possible on an iPhone, but the idea that an app in the Apple Store could be susceptible to malware is my limit. I advise you not to waste your time.
  • Too cluttered screen Apr 5, 2020

    By farmergirlIA
    When I started using this app in 2019, there were very few “bells and whistles “ that had to appear on my phone screen. Now I’m to the point of deleting the app because in addition to the ads and the pin for my location, there’s a large tab that gives me GPS coordinates for my location, a widget that shows a time lapse bar for the radar, a flashing beacon signaling my location, and now a button on the time lapse bar begging me to click on it to get the latest forecast. I have tried to get rid of as many screen widgets as possible, but these still dog me. This is too much for a small 4” screen. I can barely see any of the actual weather systems now. Too bad. This used to be a useful app.
  • Falls short in border area (San Diego) Aug 7, 2018

    By Kimjamul
    NOAA Weather has always been my go-to resource. But in a critical area, this falls very short. It does not allow the user to choose the animation (past vs forecasted). I live in the border area (San Diego) and the radar display stops at the border. Much of our weather originates south of the border, where 1) no radar display is shown and 2) the “Rain” overlay is “forecast” ONLY. I upgraded to the paid app hoping I would be able to see past-hour animation of monsoonal rains buildup (not just a forecast). Alas, I am still stuck with only a rain forecast—highly unreliable in our neck of the woods— and radar display that stops at the border. So sadly I’ll rely on other apps and discontinue my paid subscription. :-(
  • BUYER BEWARE Terrible - Bait and Switch - Not Free - Deceptive Sep 2, 2019

    By Emilee3
    It says it’s free in the App Store, but then you can’t even open the App until you sign up for a paid subscription. Really shady considering I think many people come to the app looking to track hurricanes that may threaten their lives and the makers of this app are trying to take advantage of them. Just do the right thing and list that it has a cost up front. It does have a ONE WEEK free trial option but that is linked to auto renew in 1 WEEK at $2.99 PER WEEK and I think the free trial doesn’t even include SHOWING the hurricanes anywhere, you would need to purchase the PREMIUM subscription for that, but you don’t find out any of that until after you sign up for auto renew. Also BUYER BEWARE, if you decide not to get the free trial and you leave the app, but then go back later thinking fine, I’ll just do the one week trial and remember to cancel in one week if the app is not good, the RATE HAS CHANGED to a 3 DAY TRIAL that auto renews in 3 DAYS and NOW AT $3.99 A WEEK! Super shady and sneaky. Most deceptive app I’ve ever come across. Seems like these people are trying to take advantage of people afraid of an impending potentially tragic hurricane and seems exactly like a form of price gouging, and just low low low business tactics. It’s incredibly shameful.

    DON'T INSTALL! It's just a free trial, then it'll start charging you for services. Shameful! You'd think they would just want to help people. Just saw your comment and no, there's no option to simply use it for free. It says it's free for 3 days, then I will be automatically charged monthly. There is no button to select TOTALLY FREE alerts. I truly feel this is entrapment. Why isn't there just a totally free button? Just sayin.
  • App tricks you into paying upfront Sep 22, 2018

    By santiagoqr1
    Downloaded the app, authorized the download with my fingerprint, then opened the app and was immediately prompted by another screen asking for my fingerprint, right after I said that I didn’t want to pay, that I just wanted the free version, they don’t clarify that the free version is 7 days free, and after that is paid. When it prompted me the second time for my fingerprint, I never thought I’d be paying a week later, since I selected the free version. I know they’re going to say “but it says on the screen that it’s not free” thing is, they use smaller fonts and on the bottom, making it deceiving and impossible to see at first glance. Also, NOAA is a government agency, pretty much the “Weather Bureau” (as you used to be called) you’re funded by taxes, literally “for the people by the people”, why do you charge people for an app, that only mirrors something that it’s already paid for with tax dollars, I know there’s app developers and support and everything, but the department doesn’t live off these payments through the AppStore, your department has an anual budget, so why, WHY, why charge people for something that’s already paid for, AND SUCH AN OUTRAGEOUS AMOUNT!?

  • No way in without subscription May 10, 2021

    By alibelblue
    I used to get lightning strike alerts and it was great to keep my kids safe inside when I’d get them. I noticed lately that wasn’t working, shrugged it off. There’s a big storm rolling through and I went to check the app, also thinking maybe I needed to update a setting for the lighting notifications but couldn’t get into the app. Upon opening the app was prompted to subscribe or do a free trial. When I tapped the button to not do the trail I saw the “continue” button and tapped it thinking I’d then be taken into the free site. Nope. I was redirected to the App Store to subscribe for $2.99 a week. There’s no button or bypass to get into the actual app without subscribing. I’ve seen customer service responding to others complaining of the same thing saying we can bypass it but there is no, single place that allows me to do so. I’m so disappointed in this underhanded practice to gain subscribers. If I had been alerted “hey, we’re going to make this a subscription-based app after this month to cover costs” I would have subscribed. But with this attempt at tricking people? No way.

  • Your taxes already paid for this Feb 15, 2021

    By PeeAitchDee
    Do people realize that NOAA stands for National Oceanic & Atmospheric Administration, aka the U.S. government? Whenever reviewers point this out the developer responds that they are not affiliated with NOAA, just using its data. As if that’s somehow better. Please understand: this developer has taken a publicly funded resource that serves a critical public safety purpose, tacked on a bunch of pointless features and ads to create a product functionally identical to any number of other janky rent-seeking weather apps, and now demands subscription fees for access to something that’s supposed to be free for everyone. I get that subs are the business model now, and truthfully I don’t even mind ads or one-time purchases as compensation for value added. But it takes a special kind of arrogance to repackage a public asset you didn’t create and then charge the public a recurring fee to use it. If you can’t figure out how to turn a profit selling a product someone else paid for, your business should fail.

    Its an easy to use app that looks good but it is extremely inaccurate when it comes to weather forecasts and even current conditions. I have been using 3 weather apps to see how accurate they are and this is the only paid app in the group, and the other two will say conditions are similar and relatively accurate while this app is way off. I would not recommend this app at all.
  • This is not a free app Jun 19, 2018

    By dasprague
    I downloaded this and when I opened it the first time, it asked me to turn on location services. I said no. The next thing that pops up is asking me to turn on location services. I again say no. The next pop-up tells me this is a 7 day trial and you the have to buy the app. Mind you, I still haven’t gotten into the app. That’s when I deleted it. Developers: you should just charge for the app up front, since it’s not really free. Get rid of the ads. You also need to drop the push to turn on location services. If I have them off, it’s because I know what they do, and if you think by asking a second time in a different way that you will get a different answer, you’re just wasting my time and making me extremely skeptical about what you use that data for and what else is hidden in the app. At best, this is deceptive advertising. At worst.... That could go too many ways, and all are nefarious.

    I just downloaded and paid $4.99 for your app and it was useless. We had a tornado warning 11 miles away from me and your app never did an alert or even mentioned it. Thank goodness for a free app I had or I would have never know! I am beyond angry, I paid for your app because of this. I live in a place where this time of year tornadoes are a problem and for your app to not even recognize that this was going on is not only frustrating but incredibly dangerous!!!
