    The best way to get through a snowstorm is to prepare 2 days in advance. With updates from your phone, you'll have a heads up on the incoming snowstorms for your area.

  • Terribly slow and contradicting Jul 9, 2018

    By King of Rancho Cucamonga
    It’s horribly slow to load any new info without jumping through hoops. Start switching cities, close out of it completely to name a couple and the radar is spotty at best. What I mean is huge chunks of the radar image are missing, conveniently it’s usually missing around the area I’m trying to look at. Does me no good if the nearest radar image is 200 miles away. Also the hourly and the 10 day rarely if ever jive. 10 day forecast may say %80 chance of storms this afternoon, the hourly will say sunny the whole time with %0 chance of rain and I suppose I could check the radar but oh wait, it doesn’t work. This app used to be absolutely perfect when I first got it in 2012 but now it’s just a headache. It’d be great if you fixed it but it is free so I guess I shouldn’t complain too much. So a few days later they claimed to have looked into the issue and corrected it. I’m telling you I wish everyone worked like these guys! It’s fixed and works flawlessly! The level of support and attention they paid to my measly whining is outstanding. You guys are top notch, thank you. I work outside so having a good weather app is important and you guys are spot on

    It came on my phone I did not download it, and it's surprisingly quite accurate. It told me rain was coming in 3 minutes and sure enough it came on time. Update: I have reduced the stats from 5 to 3 About 4 months ago I'm not sure if it is a bug in an update or what but the app freezes and crashes almost every time I open it. Sometimes I have to reboot my phone to close the app. I really loved the app up until about early summer. I think I'll uninstall and reinstall it . If it works I'll update

    Great App. Little slow at times with good coverage , but its my go to and the local station very close to me , cant get much more accurate. Others may use a station 30 + miles away. Rainfall , stations use estimated radar and not actual and never right , even half a block from me , so Its better to use your own gauge for sure if needed and interested , not the Apps totals. I like saving other places as well to quickly find conditions where family are.
  • 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.

    This has been my go to weather app for years. I really appreciate the accuracy of the forecast. Sadly, for months, the temp in my top status bar does not auto update in the background. It only changes if I open the app. I have always liked this feature, but it's been broken so long, I'm ready to try and find a new weather app.
  • 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!
  • 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!!!!!

    It's a fast way the "know before" going out, what to expect of the weather. The only cons I have is the small news video's.... for their dementional size (1 1/2" X 4") compressed to put 4 to a page, as video is playing there is a pop up blurb telling what the next video is about when one clearly see's about it, very annoying. Plus, the new road conditions;...."some roads may be wet, some may be dry", shows real intelligence. The app needs work.
  • 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.

    I check weather bug several times a day and use it for several locations when traveling. I have always found it to be quite accurate. I wish there was contact info to report problems. Our local station appears to be out and reporting inaccurate temps and has not been fixed in over a week.

    Take Commuter screen off Home Screen Jan 26, 2021

  • 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.

    Commuter alerts are ridiculous and not wanted For example mine says right now "most roads are dry but some may be wet" Are you serious?!!! Other than that it's a good app for weather Update 10/13/21 I'm totally disappointed with the app. Most of the time it doesn't work. No forecast (just blank and rader on main screen is a big blob!) I've been a weatherbug fan since it's beginning on PC decades ago but after the last few months of HORRIBLE updates I'm not sure anymore if I want it!
  • 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.

    Have used this app for many years and loved it. The latest update totally trashed what used to be an awesome widget. Customizable, great choices in size & color, easy to read. Now the size is erroneous, not customizable unless you like a black background. One day it's working fine, the next day trash. I sent them an email asking for an explanation and got a lame response asking for a screen shot. Sent this & no response. Now on the 3rd day. They need to get their act together.

    I'll be letting my subscription expire. The new widget layout and lack of colors is absolutely terrible compared to how it used to be. It used to be customizable and beautiful. Now it's yuck! Been this way for quite some time. I don't know what's up and don't know anything about creating widgets but geez whiz this is a bad one. Bring back the old widget guys. The app itself is great. Good information. Looks nice. But the widget absolutely sucks. If you want a good looking widget pass on this.
  • Sep 29, 2021

    By Jaymz
    WARNING: DO NOT GET THIS APP!!!!! The whole background is just one big ad that makes it so hard to read the font. The app literally has ads everywhere: Between cards, under the 10-day forecast, and a constant banner ad at the bottom of the app. But those weren't intrusive enough, so they made the entire background one giant ad. The app sucks now!
  • Sep 26, 2021

    By Tammy Carlisle
    I'll only give it one star till you switch the 2x1 widget back to the version before this update. Got this response in an email, "Unfortunately, the additional widget settings on Android had to be disabled in the latest releases." Funny, it was working fine right up to the day I updated the app a few days ago on my Android. You took away the extras, changed the layout of the widgets, & cluttered them up with extra icons it doesn't need. Sometimes, less is more.
  • 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...
  • Oct 15, 2021

    Since the last update I get alerts for commuter and daily precipitation even thought I have those alerts turned off in settings. Weatherbug tech support suggested removing app, restart phone then install app. That work for a few days but the alerts are back. App needs to be fixed. I'll be looking for a different weather app to use.

  • 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. :)
  • Lots of information for a free app Jun 21, 2021

    By LMcPH
    This app gives you tons of information especially for a free app. In some ways it’s better then the other weather apps out there. It even does one thing that I’ve not found any of the other apps can do. It will give you the heat index even in the hourly mode. Just click on hourly and then click on the time you are looking for. I’m sure they are estimated versions of heat index, but it certainly helps to plan what time if day you might want to do those outside things. Only thing I could find as a negative is so small that it’s barely worth mentioning-it doesn’t move between cities as easily as other weather apps. Like I said barely worth mentioning. I have found it to be more accurate then some of the other weather apps out there. I especially find that the heat index to be very accurate in the moment, and helpful in the estimated future times. I live in Texas and in the summer it’s very important to know the heat index. Bottomline: This weather app is worth your time to get. I’ve got the free version and it’s truly amazing.
  • Usually better than NWS or TWC apps Jun 24, 2018

    By TeriMelissa
    I’ve been using the Bug since I got my very first iPhone. It zeroes in on my exact weather happening in the moment. There are many pinging spots near almost anywhere to give a good triangulation for my personal weather conditions within a few miles. The radar is easy to understand and accurate. The future casts are as accurate as I’ve ever seen ...and much better than even my 3 local meteorologists on tv. Even as far out as the 10 day forecast I know I can be ready for what may be coming. Where I live the weather is unpredictable moment to moment but Weatherbug stays on top of the quick changes. I love the storm tracker showing dangerous situations like nearby lighting and all severe weather threats. The UV rating, pollen counts and air quality reports are important to me as I am really fair, have severe allergies and asthma. The heads up to make sure I have the proper preventative meds/sunscreen make my outside time much more enjoyable. WeatherBug is an app I use daily; sometimes several times a day. I highly recommend it to everyone!

One problem with weather apps, that I found - they may excell in one area, but be poor in other areas. Or visually stunning, but not accurate. Or take up way to much memory. Weatherbug has found a great medium. but this way, ALL features work very well, accurate, awesome alerts. A+. (And the lightning alert feature is the best)
  • Really helpful app! Love it! Jan 8, 2021

    By a wheels weather
    I used Weatherbug for the two years that I lived in South Florida, and for these past two years in North Carolina. When I first moved to Florida I did try some other apps and they just were not good enough. I am very reliant on having weather information and Weatherbug has been a really great help. I especially appreciate the Lightning tracker! It’s helped keep me safe for sure. It has a lot of other very useful information too. I can also keep track of weather, fires, etc., in other cities/regions where my family lives. It has a very user friendly interface and I can set up the home screen in the order I prefer. I also LOVE the short mostly weather-centric videos of people, animals, and landscapes that I probably would never otherwise see. I use it every single day and I’ve never had any issues with it. The past couple days it’s been loading a little slower than usual, but that happens from time to time with most apps. Not a big deal. I have recommended this app to family and friends because it’s a good one!
  • 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.

    It's a fast way the "know before" going out, what to expect of the weather. The only cons I have is the small news video's.... for their dementional size (1 1/2" X 4") compressed to put 4 to a page, as video is playing there is a pop up blurb telling what the next video is about when one clearly see's about it, very annoying. Plus, the new road conditions;...."some roads may be wet, some may be dry", shows real intelligence. The app needs work.
  • 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.

    So far I like this app more than other weather apps I have tried. Pretty accurate and ads are tolerable. And it doesn't change your phone settings and screen to suit itself. I do wish the radar showed movements so you could see quickly which direction a storm was moving, but it is fixed radar. That's my only complaint.
  • I love the app, but where did my widget go? Sep 20, 2020

    By Choirgirl1018
    So I recently updated to IOS14, and ever since then, i can't find the WeatherBug widget anywhere. This is super disappointing because I'm a huge weather erd and like to stay up to date quickly with the features offered to me through that widget. I also use voiceover witch is a built in screenreader on my iPhone made for people with visual impairments, and your app and widget are fully accessible and i've been a long time user of your app. I'd just really like my widget back. I know that this might be an IOS14 thing, but could you guys please update so that all IOS14 users and I can use your widget again? Like i said, i find it super helpful, and now that IOS14 allows me to put widgets directly on the home screen, I was really looking foreword to being abled to see the weather at a glance on my home screen and using the widget more. If and when you guys bring it back, could you put a little thing in there for current conditions other than temperature (ex: sunny, cloudy, 50% chance of storms). That would also be really helpful. Thanks for making such a great app and I hope you can fix this.
  • AMAZING app! But only 4 stars here’s why... Jun 21, 2021

    By Lolly baa
    So years ago when my dad first got a new phone, he needed a weather app put on his phone. I downloaded this one because it was the first one I saw. Never thought about it again. Come to summer 2020, I start lifeguarding and therefore, we have to watch out for lightening and mile radius this and that. All my coworkers told me to download this app because it gives accurate readings on how far a storm/lightening is. It SURE did live up to the standard!! Every day during the summer, and during the winter as well, we would watch this app religiously to check for lightening to keep patrons safe. I eventually started using the app for personal use outside of work, because it gives accurate weekly forecast, a week in advance so you pretty much always know what’s coming. I have 4 stars only because sometimes it does take a minute to load. And is hard because it doesn’t even SHOW it’s loading (with a little wheel or percent or anything) it just sits there and blanks until it pulls up which can be frustrating. But other than that, WOULD RECOMMEND!
  • Just Average Weather App May 16, 2020

    By Sundude_99
    Could be a lot better. For example just give us the current weather, a radar map, and the ten day forecast. Get rid of all that multimedia crap. Location services are poor - the app tries to locate you near some related point of interest. For example, it associates my home location with a high school several miles away and tries to locate one of my favorite locations with a mountain (saved location Bartlett, NH - associated POI is Mt Washington, REALLY!). Neither of these locations have weather representative of where I want to see. Lastly, the pop ups when I am trying to look at the radar map are infuriating. Update: 16May - helpful, intuitive, easy to customize. My only suggestions for improvement are indicated above. I’ll start looking at the radar map and some other info will pop up and cover the map. The adverts at the bottom are hilariously bad. Right now there is a picture of an AppleWatch with an insinuation that it is $49 and a picture of Willa Holland reportedly doing something in a casino.
  • Love this weather app but... Oct 1, 2018

    By Charmed824
    This has been my “go to” app for weather for years. I love the hourly information, especially the hourly dew point info. However, over the last month or so, the app freezes up, takes forever to refresh or load when clicking between the different options (hourly, 10 day, etc). I hope these glitches will be fixed! UPDATE: This app still doesn’t seem as accurate. It will say one thing for the current conditions, but the hourly condition shows something completely different. And the dew point is never accurate. Currently it says the dew point is 39 but my local Tv station weather app shows the dew point is 51. Plus, I don’t like how I have to scroll all the way down to view the current observations..that info should be right there when you open the app so it’s quick and easy.
  • Can't arrange NOW page Mar 31, 2018

    By montanabobw
    My favorite weather app. The info provided is most often more accurate than other apps. I would give the app 5 stars except for: 1) Prior versions allowed the various segments of the NOW page (wind, lightning, UV, etc.) to be rearranged to the user's liking. That ability has unfortunately disappeared. Like another user below, I don't want the new air quality segment at the top of the list. It's good info but it's just not as important to me as other info. In fact, I'd probably put it at or near the end of the list. 2) I've never understood the "flopping around" (various info blinking) that occurs when the app is started. Eventually, after a few seconds, it settles down and stops flopping. It's done this for me for many many versions and on a number of different devices. I write apps for a living. There should be no flopping.
  • What's going on Jan 24, 2018

    By Pleasefixyoutubenow
    I've used this app for years but lately I haven't liked using it. I know that weather predictions often change but the 10 day forecast changes drastically like 15 times a day now. It goes from snow to sunny to rain to freezing rain. It never used to do this. Honestly, this app hasn't been predicting the weather accurately. For example, in 2 days, no matter what it says it's gonna be on the 10 day forecast today, it's going to change a lot in 2 days. I get sometimes being unsure and really having to change predictions but this is more than I've experienced in the past using this app. I am just frustrated because I don't even know what the weather is anymore unless I look at another weather app and I don't feel like this source is reliable at the moment.

    It came on my phone I did not download it, and it's surprisingly quite accurate. It told me rain was coming in 3 minutes and sure enough it came on time. Update: I have reduced the stats from 5 to 3 About 4 months ago I'm not sure if it is a bug in an update or what but the app freezes and crashes almost every time I open it. Sometimes I have to reboot my phone to close the app. I really loved the app up until about early summer. I think I'll uninstall and reinstall it . If it works I'll update

    This has been my go to weather app for years. I really appreciate the accuracy of the forecast. Sadly, for months, the temp in my top status bar does not auto update in the background. It only changes if I open the app. I have always liked this feature, but it's been broken so long, I'm ready to try and find a new weather app.
  • 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!!!!!
  • 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.

    I originally gave this 5 stars, its my favorite weather app, but the new update, makes it clunky and the status doesnt update unless i actually log into the app and look at it.. I liked it better when it would update automatically, so i can see the temp at a glance.. The new update did not improve your functions to me.. made it much worse!

    I have used this app exclusively for years but will likely be looking for other options.. Don't mind inside the app but widget is horrible and nothing self updates like it used to. Widget or the area within my notification bar. What is the point if I can't just look on the fly and have to open an app. Other options have widgets to so I will start looking around. Thanks for screwing a good thing up.

    Well, you have succeeded! I've had the app for years and I never reviewed it. It's a great app. There I said it. Now as a thank-you for the review could you please restore the widget as it was before. I notice others have asked for the same thing. I'm not going to drop the app over the widget. Instead I'll trust you'll listen to those that support your work. Everyone flubs once in a while. It's OK. Just bring back that old great looking widget. 🙂
  • 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.
  • 50/50 May 25, 2020

    By Angelscry2o
    I have pins down to watch the weather where I really need to know due to family locations and myself. Today I received a notification stating lightning within 10 miles of a pin. So I open the app to see what was going on. I then send a text to my daughter and asked her if she was enjoying the rain, cause the pin I’ve placed is within 500 ft of her exact location and because the map showed dead on she was getting rain. She replied back it hasn’t rained all day and sent me a pic of the sun shining and ground/pavement bone dry. I sent her a screenshot and she said I need a new weather app cause it’s not accurate to say the least. I’ve been using weather bug a couple years now and prefer it over others. But I really need a more accurate look at the weather in real time. On of my pins is where I have a storage unit that has high tornado possibilities. I need that so I’ll know when and if my belongings get damaged to file a claim with insurance. But my main concerns are my children, grandchildren and other family members. If their internet goes down I’ll never know until after the fact. Please fix this issue ASAP! Thanks
  • Redundant “upgrade” Sep 27, 2021

    By No hope!
    I have used this app for 6 years, maybe more, and have preferred it over any others. I do pay for the non-ad version. The updates in the past have moved toward improving the app, but the most recent one is not helpful. Why would I need an “Alert!” to know that it might rain in the next 24 hrs? Isn’t this the purpose of having a weather app that forecasts upcoming weather? Or a “Commuter!” alert? This is a weather app. If it forecast’s a downpour, winter storm, or hurricane, wouldn’t you understand that traffic is going to be impacted? Useless. And the other joy? The alerts can’t be turned off. (iPhone SE, iOS 15). Not matter how many times I try to turn off the useless alerts, back they come, like a zombie you can’t kill. And no direct way to contact the developers, either. I’m keeping the app, but it’s disappointing and frustrating to see a good, functional, simple app go downhill in the race to the bottom, driven by a FOMO need to constantly provide upgrades, even when the upgrades are not really addressing a distinct problem and are cluttering up an already busy UI.

    Take Commuter screen off Home Screen Jan 26, 2021

  • 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.

    Have used this app for many years and loved it. The latest update totally trashed what used to be an awesome widget. Customizable, great choices in size & color, easy to read. Now the size is erroneous, not customizable unless you like a black background. One day it's working fine, the next day trash. I sent them an email asking for an explanation and got a lame response asking for a screen shot. Sent this & no response. Now on the 3rd day. They need to get their act together.

  • USED to be my favorite for years! May 16, 2019

    By iplayd2day
    Something happened a month ago after the app update of version 5.9 was completed. After that, my Weatherbug that would slay all of the other apps that family members had, was useless to me. I would sit there and watch an empty frame of the screen, while my data wildly searched to get SOMETHING on there. Still nothing would show up for a good minute or two. One in a while, 30 seconds. It's showing RIGHT NOW that our wind is blowing here at 6mph, yet for the last several HOURS, we've had damaging winds of over 50 mph continual gusts continue to hammer our area. Same thing happened yesterday as well. 6mph vs 50??? I have furniture MOVED off of my patio outside, pillows and tiki torches blown across the yard. I could have perhaps had fair warning to bring them indoors or had them weighed down, but the main issue in question is what happened a month ago and where did my weather bug go??? Can you bring it back? I've deleted and reinstalled several times hoping it would be a success, but it's the same thing, with my poor wifi JAMMING to try to load it up. Never had an issue before. The app was da bomb. Now it's totally useless.
  • Contradicting May 15, 2021

    By GrpTherapy
    Like the ap but too many times the daily and the hourly do not match. Now for example, daily says 50% chance of rain, check hourly to see when and all times listed for next day and a half say 0% chance. Happens all the time like they have no way to keep up with the hourly. I wrote this some time ago. Same issue today. 50% chance of rain on the daily, 0% chance anywhere on the hourly. Makes the program unusable. Have to go to another program to see if it will rain or not. Evidently they cannot fix this as it has been this way forever. I received a response from the company but it did not address the issue. I don’t see how this app rates almost 5 stars when one of the 3 areas, hourly - (hourly, maps, daily) - is useless on many days where rain is forecast on the daily. I am trying to make a decision today about lawn care tomorrow. Daily says 30%. Looking at hourly to see when the best chance of rain would be, all times are zero. I look at another app and all times have a percent showing. Until this is fixed, this app should be no more than a 3 star.
  • Full of bloat & bad ux May 20, 2019

    By H0317
    The app does what it is supposed to do, but it is full of ads that are prioritized on loading. If you want to quickly check the weather make sure that you wait a few seconds for it to fully load the new data; Ive popped it open to read stale data and closed it many times before I realized it was totally wrong. If you open it up, it takes a long time to load the core of the app but displays ads quickly, which is fun in a hurry. For UX, they pack too much into the buttons and its hard to parse quickly with the eyes. Furthermore, the quick menu button has several mini components that go to different pages on click. You will invariably go to the wrong page (e.g 10 day forecast vs hourly vs time now). Add this to stale data and load times, you get a mess. It is frustrating to use, you have to wait long enough when looking to feel assured the data is trusted. When you click you go to the wrong page, wait for it to load, click the right page, wait for it to load, scroll past ads, find data. Its a silly construct and I’m done with it.
  • Used to love this app! Apr 11, 2021

    By Tara0218
    WeatherBug used to be my #1 go to weather app, I'd refuse to use any other. It was always the most accurate, and I loved how easy it was to navigate and use. However, whatever updates they've been doing to this app over the last 6 months has really driven this thing down into the ground. My widgets no longer work half the time, they display question marks instead of temperatures for the week. If not that, then they show 100°+ days every day. I live in Northeastern Michigan...so that's nothing more than a flaw in the app. The radars have a mind of their own. Sometimes they load, sometimes they just disappear and you can't even select the layers to show the current radar/future radar/etc. It'll also tell me it's going to rain for the day, and then I never see a drop. I'm just so done with this garbage app now. Like I said, it USED to work just fine!! Not any longer though. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling too, that worked for about a day until it reverted back to nonsense. This time I'll be uninstalling for good.
  • 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.

    WARNING: DO NOT GET THIS APP!!!!! The whole background is just one big ad that makes it so hard to read the font. The app literally has ads everywhere: Between cards, under the 10-day forecast, and a constant banner ad at the bottom of the app. But those weren't intrusive enough, so they made the entire background one giant ad. The app sucks now!

    I'll only give it one star till you switch the 2x1 widget back to the version before this update. Got this response in an email, "Unfortunately, the additional widget settings on Android had to be disabled in the latest releases." Funny, it was working fine right up to the day I updated the app a few days ago on my Android. You took away the extras, changed the layout of the widgets, & cluttered them up with extra icons it doesn't need. Sometimes, less is more.
  • 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...

Weatherbug tech support suggested removing app, restart phone then install app. That work for a few days but the alerts are back. App needs to be fixed. I'll be looking for a different weather app to use.
  • Please fix it, the app is broken. Apr 11, 2019

    So I used to use WeatherBug a lot. But I do have to admit that sometimes the weather isn’t a true match to what’s happening. Granted, I live in Michigan, where one half of your lawn can be bright and sunny and the other half can be down pouring(I’ve personally witnessed it). But that’s besides the point. The data isn’t the same as what my friend gets from our local weather station. And just recently I tried to open the app to check the weather. (Mostly to read the radar. It’s more reliable to read it yourself if there’s rain or in this case, a spontaneous blizzard in the middle of April), when I discovered that the app takes 30 seconds to buffer, then immediately crashes back to my wallpaper. But, when I looked in the running background apps thing, it was there and so I clicked on it. I don’t know if what I was seeing was real or not, but it showed the normal degrees and the little radar thing, but then it froze and crashed again. The app in it's current state is completely unusable. I grew up watching WeatherBug on the tv every day before I left for school. It’s kind of sad that I have to leave and seek out another weather app. Even with all it’s bugs, I still liked this one.
  • Deeply wounded me 🥺 Aug 26, 2020

    This app caused my astraphobia. Now, I was generally afraid of storms already but one day, my good friend used weather bug to check for lightning when we were in the middle of a thunderstorm in the garage once. I asked about whether bug she said it was a great app! So I decided to download it. That was a horrible decision! I’m sorry to the creators of a bug but this app is way too extreme for children!! severe storm watch, life-threatening thunderstorm warning mediately seek shelter life-threatening Lightning and storms. And when I get the more than half the time it’s not evening for where I live!!And it doesn’t update through the day! It was The only resource I trusted. That was a bad decision. you guys don’t update to the day you lie about lightning strikes, and your warnings are way too dramatic and scary!!!!! 😣 This app should be 17+! it scared me so bad!!! Reason I gave this 2 stars is because for a while I loved it and thought I could trust it. But instead it developed my Astraphobia. even though I am getting treatment for it, still I’m always going to have a permanent fear of storms. Thanks to weather bug! (I’m sorry guys weather bug did not cause my astraphobia but it was a ginormous contributing factor)
  • Stick to your default weather app Jan 19, 2019

    I work for my city plowing snow, cutting grass etc, so knowing the weather is apart of my job because I need to be prepared for random call ins and so on. This app sent me completely off. All day I’m checking my default weather app, and Weather Bug, and they’re saying two completely different things. My default app is saying snow starting Friday night leading into all day Saturday. Weather Bug is saying an hour of snow at 11pm then more light snow from like 4am to 10 am Saturday morning. I stay up doing some late reading cus I of course want to believe the forecast with less snow. At around 11:30pm I check Weather Bug again, and it’s completely changed to snow all night leading into snow all day Saturday. But get this. It keeps switching back and forth between barely any snow, to snow all day. Had my job called me in overnight I would’ve been completely crap out of luck, and exhausted working through early Saturday morning into Saturday evening. To sum things up, I will definitely stick to my default weather app. It’s not the fanciest, buts it’s been pretty accurate so far. Definitely more reliable than Weather Bug.
  • Inaccurate radar in Central America May 24, 2019

    By Microminimike
    I’ve been dependent on this app for a long time in the USA with much success with the radar and seeing storms approaching all the time but now that I’m here in Mexico for a vacation I’m finding major huge areas of bad storms nowhere on this radar map. I’ve already gotten soaked twice because of this awful no Central America radar. Accuweather has the accurate radar for Mexico and Central America as all I did was google search “weather radar in Mexico”. Right now as I’m writing this review there is some big rain over Mexico City and surrounding cities not to mention a major tropical storm over Honduras but on this weatherbug radar map there’s not a drop of precipitation showing. Yeah you can see other parts of the world and USA but why not Mexico?! I’m seeing major heavy rain and thunder and lighting with my own eyes and I can’t believe this app has let me down so bad here in Mexico after being such a major dependable radar in the USA. Very dissatisfied and disappointed. You guys need to get on the ball and fix this or copy from accuweather or something because I’m totally about to delete this app.
  • Please take off the superfluous alerts! Oct 7, 2021

    By GuardYourHeartToday
    I have used the WeatherBug app for a long time, and this is the first time I’ve been completely frustrated with this app. I live in an area where we get real, serious weather conditions like blizzards and tornadoes. The superfluous alerts like commuter and daily precipitation remain as alerts on my phone and they are completely unnecessary to be in the alert section. Those alerts were originally for things like storm watches, warnings, etc…severe weather alerts. Now, I click on it thinking there is a real alert when all it’s telling me is whether or not the road is wet which if I’m looking on a map to see if it’s raining I would already know. And, telling me that it’s going to rain when I’m clearly looking at the radar, or out my window, to see that it’s raining. Please! This is redundant. Having those types of “alerts” should NOT be included with alerts like Tornado warnings. It can tempt people not look at the ones that are really important. If you must keep them, Please make commuter and daily precipitation separate from storm alerts.
