    4 stars because it doesn't show the date with the time. I screenshot the app to track allergies, health, and mood. Weather Bug seems more accurate than other weather applications. I like the appearance as you can see most everything you need in one view without a ton of scrolling. I especially like the 10- day forecast for that reason. The pollen count map is very cool, especially to people with allergy or asthma issues. Would like to see a little better connectivity and map updating.

  • My favorite weather app is screwed up Jun 28, 2019

    By TexGreenEyes
    This has been my go-to weather app for years. It gets used multiple times a day, and has never given a hint of trouble. Scratch the glowing praises now because with this last update the app crashes on start-up. I followed the developer’s advice found in a response to someone else’s recent complaint and deleted/re-downloaded the app. Bad idea. The app started up once, and then promptly stopped working again, and I lost all my settings for no good reason. Come on, guys. Don’t let such a good app cause this much frustration. The second star I’m giving is based on my hope that you’ll get this fixed ASAP. Update: Shortly after I posted my review the app started working as expected. Then this morning, just 3 days later, it’s back to crashing at startup. I do not want to uninstall/reinstall again, as I did that before you suggested it in response to my original review. It didn’t work then. I hope this usually excellent app is mended soon. Update #2: It’s been about a week since my first update, and while the app is working better, it still occasionally crashes at startup. This happens about once every other day. I don’t know if it’s related, but the problem seems to occur when I first open the app and I’m not on wifi. Anyway, I’ve updated my stars accordingly.

    I used to have NWS, but they changed their radar maps, and I didn't like it. Weatherbug, so far is pretty good. The reason I gave it 4 stars, is because of the ads that keep popping up at the bottom. I don't like any ads...anywhere, period..!! If I want something, I will research it..

  • Best weather app i could download Dec 25, 2019

    By W0LF1E_B00M
    First off I want to start by saying that this app is accurate. I live in a place that gets nasty snowstorms, and its nice to know in advance when I should be prepared to shovel the driveway or get out the snow gear. The radar is really good and I enjoy watching it while I watch the storm on my covered front porch. The one thing I'm not a huge fan of is the ads, but the makers of the app beed to make money somehow so it’s understandable. But my favorite part is how you can customize the page so whatever you want to show up towards the top, will show up towards the top. I must say, i have had three other apps and with this one, the alerts are on parr with what the national weather service applies to your location. Last thing ( I promise !) Is that when an alert is issued to one of the locations i have set, it sends me a notification even if its not the location i have pulled up on the home page. So i get a LOT of weather notifications, once again, its manageable though and interesting to see what the weather is doing at the other locations! That you for taking time to read this and happy holidays!

    This app has been very helpful to me for planning my day's activities and travel. It is very easy to check the daily and 10 day forecasts in multiple locations. It also gives other weather related data like closest lightning strike, sunrise/sunset, and air quality. I like the satellite maps too. It does not always respond with real time data and sometimes seems to be updating which limits access to important information. For example, after sunrise, the screen was still in night background.

    Been using this app for awhile, and though I expect any company that has my location data is going to sell it, what I didn't expect is that WeatherBug would use almost 800mb of background cellular in this last month, (on top of the over 500mb it used in the foreground.) I'm on a limited data plan so this issue matters. As useful as the app is, it's headed straight for the digital trash.

  • All weather apps seem to be inaccurate Dec 3, 2018

    By xlemnrty
    Is it me, or are others experiencing the same issues of inaccurate, not up-to-date weather no matter what app? It seems they all use the same local stations that must be very delayed in their updates to the various apps. Seriously ALWAYS off several degrees, and as for precipitation percentages, they’re so useless, I have begun to laugh at my own gullibility. A couple of mornings ago was so typical ... I wanted to take a bike ride and began looking at the forecast the prior evening showing ZERO chance of rain the next morning. Re-checked the next morning, and same ZERO % chance so I got dressed for my ride, pumped my tires, raised the garage door, when it began to rain ALL DAY. I re-checked the forecast an hour or so later, and the entire hourly forecast had changed. THE KICKER is that this same app has the audacity to provide a TEN DAY forecast 🤣🤣🤣. And almost as bad ... my gullibility to keep checking 🤔🤔🤔. Anyway, I think I’ll go back to the “stick my head out the door” method ... it’s more predictable. I get a bit of a chuckle when folks compare the presentation of info in reviews ... who cares about presentation if the data is unusable. Again ... this doesn’t seem to be a Weatherbug only issue as I have had the same experience with all four of the apps I’ve tried. It seems that the OLD-fashioned TV weather reports are more accurate the night before than the purported “real-time” weather apps.

    I used to love this app but over the last year it seems to blow away all the cities that I like to track. This seems to happen everytime it updates to the next release. Funny thing is I still get alerts for inclement weather for each city, but I cannot go to that city to see more detail. I've sent feedback twice regardng this and no change or reply. It is a waste of my time now. I've reinstalled 5 times already and re-added the cities. Not doing it again. I'm through...

  • Build me up, just to break me down Jul 10, 2018

    By The Mr's Mrs.
    Downloaded WeatherBug app about 2 weeks ago and really liked it and then... the update. Initially, I was quite impressed and pleased with the push notification weather alerts for severe weather. I especially liked that the weather alerts would push to my phone at least 15 minutes before any of my other - even local - weather apps and that they even had a “dangerous storm warning” notification, which was correct each time I received it. The widget worked wonderfully as well and was probably my second favorite feature. Enter the update. Dun dun DUUUNNNN! It completely killed everything I enjoyed and appreciated about the app. I’ve not received a single push notification since nor has the widget been functional despite deleting the app and all its data from both my phone and AppStore account. The widget simply asks that I open the app and agree to TOU and PP, which is not even an option. You agree to the TOU upon initial launch of the app but that does not give the widget functionality. I also dislike that I am unable to remove the township that the app has deemed my home/current location and set it to the correct area as it is mistakenly locating me in another town. Sadly and disappointedly I am deleting the app permanently unless the next version, which seem to be released monthly, remedies these debilitating flaws and restores the app to its previous performance and reliability.

  • Better than other “top” weather apps Apr 19, 2020

    By HomemadePancakes
    I’ve been using this app for a few months and find it to be the best app for tracking air quality. I love that this app can track AQ in ANY part of the world no matter how small or unknown the town/city is. This is a distinctive feature that the other “top rated” AQ apps lack and this to me is a huge disadvantage for them. I’d been living in a very small town in Mexico recently for 4 months and unfortunately became very ill from the air quality. I discovered Weather Bug and began to track the AQ daily and take necessary precautions as this was my first time traveling to Mexico much less anywhere outside the US. The fact that no other app was able to locate where I was living was a MAJOR let down. Weather Bug is easy to use, and gives real time AQ indexes as well as any other weather alerts and things I look for in an AQ app. If the other AQ app developers decide to improve their global location capabilities then I’ll be willing to check them out. Until then I rely on Weather Bug every single day for important AQ information in ANY town or city in the world. 👌🏻

  • love this app!! Jun 17, 2019

    By maddflower
    on memorial day, ohio had a really scary tornado outbreak and i'm lucky enough to have survived through it without being hit by one. i came across this app with my anxiety getting the better of me due to an extreme fear of tornadoes, but i can confidently say i'm happy i found it! it is extremely useful and very interesting to look on the radar. i love the alerts that it provides and they are VERY helpful. thanks for this great app! in light of these tornadoes in ohio, though, i really wish that i could be more reliable on this app with where the tornadoes are and if they have hit where i live. i'm on vacation without my family that lives there and last night when more hit was scary because i did not have a reliable source to where the tornadoes actually were and if my family was safe. i'm very happy with this app and i suppose it can't cover everything but it would have been really helpful to be able to track those tornadoes while it was happening! thank you anyways for such an amazing app, it has been really helpful and fun to mess around with. :)

    The easy to navigate WeatherBug App has EVERYTHING regarding Weather and Air Quality (including an Allergy Alert Chart) right at my fingertips! The ever-present Temp Widget is very appreciate And WEATHER ALERTS are posted hours in advance! When traveling, WeatherBug easily allows me to change to that Location, and look ahead to my destination's conditions, so I'm aware of how to prep for my trip! I am even entertained by the other WeatherBug user's photos!

  • Decent App Sep 27, 2018

    By evan.cooperman
    Weatherbug is a decent app and I can’t decide whether to give it 3 or 4 stars. I guess I’ll go with 4 because I have only 1 major complaint, though it does bother the heck out of me. I use Weatherbug for my weather most of the time, but one of the biggest complaints I have is that it does not update throughout the day. For example if the forecast is 75 degrees and sunny but it’s only 60 degrees and is raining, the app accurately displays the temperature and weather as of this moment, but the forecast doesn’t update to take the changes into account. If it’s 5:59pm and it’s 60 degrees and raining, obviously at 6:00pm it’s not going to be 75 degrees and sunny! If the app would update with new data based on unforeseen weather patterns I would be much happier with it and would probably update to 5 stars. That, and if somehow they could figure out how to forecast more accurately! I know that is a bigger and more global problem to solve, and is not limited to this app, but here in Chicago the forecast is maybe correct (or close to correct) 50% of the time. I feel like it’s gotten worse over the years, but that’s probably just because our weather has gotten more erratic and is harder to predict now than it used to be.

    Great App. I've always used AccuWeather in the past but it seemed like every other day I would lose my favorites. So far since I've been using WeatherBug all my favorites stay right where they are. I get all the alerts for each city that I have checked, the only thing that I don't really care for in is all the other excess baggage ( ads) that come with it, but figure with using something that's free you got to take the garbage with it LOL

  • Used to be better Feb 22, 2018

    By brad34785
    When I first downloaded this app several years ago it used to load information much faster, and more consistently. Now, many years and updates later, it rarely even loads any information when i am connected to wifi. The app will open and load the temperature on the home (default) screen when connected to wifi, but I have to turn off the wifi on my iphone, ensure I am connected to my cellular network, and switch between the “now”, “hourly”, and “10 Day” tabs in order to get the app to load information. It started doing this over a year ago. Initially I thought my Wi-Fi connection at home was just poor, but it turns out that I have the same problem connected to any Wi-Fi signal. I have also had this problem with 2 separate iphones. I occasionally delete the app and redownload it just to see if the problem may be a fluke, but I always end up with the same problem. This used to be my favorite weather app, but now I am exploring other apps because of my frustration with this issue. I still love the weather bug app, and in my opinion it has the very best radar maps of any app available. I just hate having to go through so many steps in order to get this app to function the way it is intended to. Please fix this!!!!!

    This thing is so hungry for attention. You can't see any information if you don't see "what's new". It is a great app with great up-to-the-minute accuracy but you need to listen & understand first. I simply hit the next button until it's done with whatever it has to say and the (only then) can you move on with your life. It works effortlessly UNTIL she has to say something the next time. I never notice anything new but whatever. Just go with it ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

  • there’s no key for the Alerts map layer :( Jun 26, 2020

    By laila jenkins
    i’ve been using weather bug for several years now and it definitely my favorite (i also have the NOAA Weather app and Dark Sky). however, i something i wish would go back to how it used to be is on the Alerts map layer. i live in the midwest so there are lots of severe thunderstorms and frequent tornado risk, so i really rely on that map layer. when i first got the app, the Alerts layer had a key for what the colors and lines meant (severe thunderstorm alert, flash flood watch, tornado watch, etc.) but for the last year or so it seems, that key disappeared and i don’t know what some of the colors mean. i can usually infer for flash flood or thunderstorm based on the radar, but that’s actually something that’s frustrating, since i don’t know what they all mean. pretty sure the key disappeared for other layers too, but those are less important to know specifically what they mean (id like to know when and where tornado watches are), and are easier to guess about. idk if that’s just an issue on my end (don’t think i changed any settings tho), or if the app actually changed, but if that was fixed or changed back to having the key, this would absolutely be 5 stars, since it’s still my favorite weather app.

    This used to be my favorite weather app. Over the years it has gotten increasingly clunky; sometimes trying to use it will bring my phone to a halt (opening weather maps is the worst). And while I appreciate the ability to rearrange the "cards", they've been reset multiple times and I have to sort through huge list again, when what I really want is an option to turn half of them off altogether. Would consider paying for ad removal if you'd let us streamline, increased stability, & made maps work

  • Missing a couple things Feb 12, 2020

    By QuestForAwesome
    WeatherBug does everything well, especially getting you your notifications, except one thing: notifying and informing you about special weather statements. These are kind of like miscellaneous statements the weather offices put out that contain information they think you need to know, but don’t qualify as a watch or a warning. They’re valuable, but WeatherBug doesn’t notify me when one is issued and they don’t show up anywhere in the app at all. For example, we have a special weather statement informing us that there’s a hard frost coming our way for the first time this season, but WeatherBug seems oblivious. I have to find out things like this from other sources, and I’m really surprised WeatherBug doesn’t include it. I’m writing this review just to ask if you would please fix this, give alerts for all weather notifications, and show them on the map. It would easily be a 5-star app otherwise. The only other thing I’d like to see is an option for the 10-day forecast to be displayed as a continuous graph, with lines through the days going up/down for various things like rain chances, temperature, wind, etc.

    Ever since the last update 3 days ago, the temp in the info bar at the top of my phone stays stuck on the same temp. The actual temp is on the full screen when I click on the app. I've uninstalled and reinstalled the app 3 times. Nothing fixes it. It's a glitch on the developers' part. It's annoying and frustrating when I don't have the accurate temp at a quick glance. Please fix this!

    This is a follow-up to what was previously posted. This app is telling me that right now there is a 50% chance of snow in my area. For the record, it's been snowing for over two hours and there's about 2" on the ground. 2/19/22. After this re view I'm unistalling this app. Reporting a 30% chance of snow. 30%?, I'm looking out my window and it's snowing like hell. I need an app. With real-time data and this is not it!

  • I deleted this app the second I read their privacy policy and TOA. One star is too generous. Nov 19, 2019

    By mutmadison
    READ THE PRIVACY POLICY AND TOA. It’s lengthy, I know, it’s intentional to dissuade people from reading and understanding it. It’s worth the 5-7 minutes of your life, I promise. Apparently, it’s too much to ask for a simple weather app in 2019 without subjecting yourself to risks known and unknown; all completely out of your control and all so a company can make a profit at the literal expense of its consumers who are the real product. If you have zero concerns with being tracked 24/7 and your precise location being shared; don’t care about your information being monetized and sold to third party sellers whose intentions you know nothing about; unfazed by the strong possibility of your information being leaked and misused; apathetic to your information being sold numerous times a day; or disinterested in the extensive and intrusive methods used in this economic model then, by all means, disregard this review and enjoy your weather app. Personally, I’ll be checking the weather manually from a browser since the weather app industry has proven themselves to be untrustworthy and not at all concerned with consumers (you know, actual human beings) or their privacy. All of this just so people can sell you crap. This truly is the darkest timeline. All I wanted to do is check the weather...
