Glitchier with every up date
by unimetrix on 2019/09/19 02:39
Hi, I used to use this app with my student when covering the Weather and Climate Unit. However, after the last few updates the app has become a little more difficult to use and it glitches (on my iPad Pro and iPad Air) every time I tried to pull detail weather data. I had done everything I can do but the glitches still prevail. I still using the app for personal information, but it is sad to see a great product losing it quality. 🥺
Awesome
by NTexan4Huskers on 2019/09/19 02:23
This app provides great, reliable data and is user friendly.
App was gutted during the last update
by tangerineislime on 2019/09/19 01:07
I get paying for no ads and some extra features but you guys literally got rid of everything that was useful about this app (lightning alerts, satellite cloud cover, layers in general) and put it behind a paywall. Literally every free weather app shows at least cloud cover. Thanks for the update nobody asked for. The original Storm app was great and you guys successfully destroyed it.

Consistently gives the pertinent information needed to make decisions regarding actions to take to protect the ones you love. Many other Apps repeatedly interview news caster to news caster trying to validate their projections and opinions. I like the latest facts. Good or bad we know it’s real and valuable information. Your App shows unbiased facts backed up by real data from reputable sources. Thank you for staying true. Far too many “News Outlets”seem to want to sensationalize what’s happening even to the extent of intervening their own reporters until they get across a message no matter how slanted it may be. Please keep up the great job of getting the real information out to as many folks as possible. Thanks again for keeping things real,relatable,reliable current and on point. Sincerely LS
One of the worst weather apps
by b-lake624 on 2019/09/18 21:14
The devs listened to legitimate complaints and revamped the interface. Now you can navigate the map without changing the forecast overview. Bravo. However the app layout is still very ugly, this is still a 2-3 year step backwards from the original storm app. I’m not sure why you can’t just take design cues from the original storm app. You literally stole the name after you bought Weather underground, why can’t you steal design? $20 a year for premium features??!?!!? What on earth do you think you provide for that price. The original storm app was absolutely better in every way and charged $2 a year. Please fire whoever is in charge of app development. A new direction is needed. Dark sky has a much prettier interface and is a 1 time $4 charge.

No 15+ radar layers to be found
by Not Working in Hawaii on 2019/09/18 11:47
Got premium and did not find the 15+ radar layers they advertised. Contacted customer support and no reply. So this one star rating is the result.
Thanks for the upgrade.
by The Glad Scientist on 2019/09/18 09:47
I was a happy camper with storm till you counted down and forced Storm Radar on us. You are a sorry fraction of the program that I have loved for years. What we lost: wind direction surface or jet stream, frontal boundaries, H & L markers, hourly and daily projections and cloud tags that you could bet your life on. Now we’ve got a sorry radar map without current conditions and storm tags that are a fraction of what we had and times that often lag by an hour. Many a night I sat up watching cloud rotation and storm direction. Thanks for nothing.
Awesome app

Not as good as the old Storm radar app......
by Meissobored on 2019/09/18 00:52
The old WU’s Storm radar app was far superior than this app. The storm tracks showed rotation, hail size, and a decent threat analysis. This radar leaves a lot to be desired. If it isn’t brought up to the quality of WU’s Storm Radar, I will delete it and search for another radar that is as good as WU’s Storm Radar. I have the Weather Channel’s app and don’t use it that much because it doesn’t give me the info that I want, when I want it! If WU wants to bring the old Storm radar app back, I would be willing to subscribe to it because it is a valuable tool. The watch and warning colors need to be consistent with the old Storm Radar. At least they made sense!! UPDATE- Now that they have decided to charge for things that were usually included in the base app, this app is not worth even spending $0.01 on!! This app had the possibility of being one of the best radar apps on the market, but the Weather Channel’s greed and ineptitude will relegate this app to the trash bin! I will delete this app and stay with RadarScope. It has much better features and is a better overall radar program at the base level than this app will ever be even at the premium level. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MINEY OR TIME ON THIS APP! Download RadarScope. If you need a more detailed app, the Tier 2 level ($9.99 per year) is better than this app at the premium level! You can get Tier 1 access to RadarScope for $49.99 per year. It’s like having your own meteorologist on your iPhone or iPad!!
Great app, until you had to pay for everything.
by Agent592 on 2019/09/18 00:27
This was great until the last update and then you had to start paying for all the features. You were able to track storms better and you were able to see where they were going. Now you have to pay 19.99 for these features. I now just have this app on my phone as a backup to the WeatherChannel App.

This app took a turn for the worse after it was taken over by the Weather Channel. The radar gives info for old radar images, but as soon as you slide the bar for current or future weather, the rain disappears. 2/10

These short, poor grammar 5 star reviews are kind of suspicious...I mean, when you start reading things like: “Best app for me” or “Really think you coverage of the weather” & my favorite so far “Great warnings of things” it sets off red flags for false review farming that companies use which is truly unfortunate & disappointing...

I am not interested in hearing about hurricane warnings I live in the desert. How about giving me some options on warnings for sand storms and thunderstorms near me and let me turn off hurricane warnings that have no effect on me or my family. You need to let us select our notifications based upon our geographic location.

SLOW and unreliable - Fake Reviews
by Flying Non Stop on 2019/09/17 02:19
Horrible. BEWARE of fake 5 star reviews. This app fell from #7 to #12 in just a few weeks in the weather category. What does that tell you. Obviously they don’t care. They locked up existing functionality from the original app, for which you have to PAY FOR NOW since Weather Channel took over. The Radar has serious lag time between 10-15 minutes on average, rendering the app totally useless. A weather system will pass through before the radar shows it, and visa versa. Deleted the app, problem solved. Check out Weather Bug.

I just paid $19 to go full screen and ad free. There are now 4 large round map selection tabs that cover a large portion of the left side of the screen! I don’t know why they didn’t put those in the Overlay or Settings section to stay hidden from the main display. Or better yet, why didn’t you put the single de-clutter button at the top, bottom, or in a corner so that you could have a real “full screen” of display?? It was a waste of money, and I will just use a different weather radar app that offers a less cluttered display. This was a gross false advertisement to get you to spend $19!!

I lost all the great things about this app and had no idea what I did to change it. Then I was asked to pay for the things that I loved about the app. Come to find out not even lightening strikes are free any more. This app now only tells me if it’s raining or going to rain. I saw some other reviews and now know why the app had trouble loading recently. It was bought. Don’t remember by whom. Doesn’t matter. The app was great but not anymore.

Any other app does this for free and you can get it on a web site for free as well. These greedy app developers are ridiculous. Time to un-share my weather station and delete the app. The app used to give weather station owners add free on the app. Corporate greed - plain and simple

No ability to save custom map settings?
by fit_fiddler on 2019/06/16 20:32
I've tried many weather apps trying to find one that is simple, clean, and provides high quality weather data. My favorites have been this one and the Weather Underground app. Weather Underground was my staple app until I found this one, and this is my new go-to weather app for radar, daily, and hourly weather information. My favorite feature is the ability to set custom map overlays for viewing radar, temperature, weather alerts, etc, including the ability to re-order the overlays. However, when I close and re-open the app, the activated overlays and the order of those overlays is not maintained. It would be an even better app if the custom map overlays and the order of those overlays was maintained after closing and reopening the app.
A Strong Storm Arising
by Closet Meteorologist on 2019/04/22 15:58
Like many of you, at first glance I thought what a letdown and a waste the new Storm App is compared to the older version. Why would anyone put out a newer version that is inferior to their previous product? The new Storm Radar is an excellent app once you learn to navigate the new system. Just pulling down on the temperature banner provides you with much more in-depth weather data, probably more than the average person cares to see. Wondering about the weather in another place? Just tap on the map and the weather banner for that location appears, no need to search the city name. Need more detail, just slide downward on the banner and get your information. Monitoring storm systems? Add Storm Tracker in the Radar layers section at the bottom of the page. This will provide you Storm tracking data and by tapping on the storm marker, you will be provided all of the storm detail utilized by the meteorologists! The radar layers at the bottom of the page allows you to customize the data and alerts that you wish to receive. My daily job is heavily impacted by the weather and storms in general. Also, in my duties as a volunteer firefighter I monitor and depend upon accurate data for fire conditions and tracking storms. The Storm Radar tool is one of the top apps on my phone today. Load it and play with it to discover the many options available to monitor the weather the way you choose.
Sub par at best.
by SamThrash94 on 2018/09/21 00:01
I had storm for a very long time before this. Paid the $10 for it years ago. Loved it enough to move to the subscription service when they dropped that. I gave this a chance but I refuse to even pay $.99 for the ad free version of this. A few of the issues I have with this app: the touch location feature is horrible I find myself accidentally clicking a location while moving around the radar. The radar centric version with the expandable bottom banner was wonderful over this. Also, why are advisories different colors from the standard! This is probably the biggest complaint, I see a red box around my country and worry it’s a tornado warning... it isn’t. I miss the markups on the radar you could do on storm, you could measure the distance and use this to predict when the front would arrive. Used to love the storm tracks but now they just don’t mesh well, and guess what when I try and tap the storm track to get more information I end up changing the floater box location because it’s easy to accidentally tap a location on the map rather than the track. Lastly, the ability to use local radars was great! I loved being able to look at the velocity track and find the hook when there was a nearby tornado. All in all what was an extremely user friendly and advanced weather app has become another “simplistic” “pretty” ui for the masses, next they will push out an update to include a news feed like the weather channel.
New Storm not as good as old Storm

Well the Weather Channel has now ruined a perfectly good app. Since they “remodeled” the Storm app into the new “Storm Radar” app it’s just not very good anymore. The layout is odd and not very intuitive, plus they changed one of the best things on Storm, the wind speed graphics. It was real easy to see the wind movement with many wind speed arrows, but now it is the occasional arrow and no movement, just a direction. No where near as useful. The radar is ok, but when you zoom in sometimes the rain/snow that was there disappears! Something is wrong there. The current weather info seems to be lacking a measure of precipitation in the last 24 hours, something that is pretty basic for weather information. After using this for several months (I would switch to another app, but they are all bad!), I’ve found it pretty flakey. Quite often the app just quits for no reason. Other times I try to move the map area and it takes 10-15 seconds for it to respond. I also do not like the radar to go into animation mode when I open the app and have configured it to not do that ... but it still does occasionally. This is all pretty sad given all the time they have had to work on this. Update, now they are pushing the “Pro” version and have some icons on the left side of the screen that are only active in the “Pro” version. Problem is they block the view on the iPhone, but you can’t get rid of them. Another annoying money grab ....
Am I missing something? (Updated again)
by Paper trumpet on 2019/08/22 03:04
It got better by only a little. Storm Radar is still an inferior app to what it replaced. Several updates to fix bugs and still hasn’t fixed most. App opens up showing Africa and the Eastern Atlantic. Must close the app and then reopen it to connect back with my location and current radar. I use it, but still wish for something better. Exploring other apps. All the comments below still apply. _________________________ The Storm Radar app is supposedly the replacement for the Storm app, which gave a notice of being discontinued May 24. I eventually found a very difficult to read graph of hourly temps and daily forecast. OK maybe for a LARGE display, but too tough to read on typical smartphone screens. I can save favorites of destinations I go for work but then constantly get unwanted weather notices for all of them. Haven’t found out how to turn that off while keeping my home location on. This is still NOT an improvement over the former app. It is a major step backwards. It is not intuitive. It is not easy to use or to read. I have to search for information where the former app gave great info all on one screen. Disappointed in the extreme. I’ve started using local news weather reports rather than turn this thing on. Hanging in there to SEE / HOPE it improves. Giving it the Summer months. If no better, it’s deleted.
Took a good app and ruined it
by dgjuytfv on 2019/05/16 20:00
This app is so disappointing, there’s probably too many things to list. First of all, it was way better when it was just Weather Underground. Once they forced you to move over from “Storm“, everything went downhill from there. First, I had paid for an ad free experience on Weather Underground (WU), and when they forced you to move over to Storm, they didn’t credit you for the ad free experience you had paid for on the original app. I have contacted them repeatedly, and have gotten no response whatsoever. Apparently they just don’t care about taking your money and then not providing the service you had paid for. Secondly, the underlying map in Storm isn’t nearly as good as the one they used to use when it was WU. Currently, you are unable to edit saved locations or recents. The delete button does not function. The satellite layer on the map doesn’t work. I’d say that their customer service sucked, but you would actually have to have made contact with someone to make that assessment. They can’t even be bothered to reach out to you when you have a problem and request some help. The list goes on and on. How do you take a product that was really good (WU), and then make it significantly worse, while effectively stealing people’s money for a service they had prepaid for. Truly mystifying. Don’t waste your time with this app.
Disappointed
by djdidjdbd chejisixj on 2019/08/24 03:10
I’ve used this app for years and loved it. I’ve recommended it to everyone I know. BUT something changed a few months ago after an update and now every single time I open the app it takes me to Africa. I live in Georgia. There is never a time now that it takes me to my location on the first time of opening the app. So I have to close it out and then open it back up again. My husband also has the app and his opens up to Africa as well and when you hit the location icon it takes you to our location but you can’t pull up any forecast information or see the radar or anything. It’s just blank. So no matter what you do you have to close it out and open it back up again. We’ve both tried deleting and reinstalling it. I even went on and paid for the pro version just to get it to stop doing what it was doing and if anything it got worse when I upgraded. I’ve sent messages to the developer (or whoever the feedback goes to) 3 different times and have yet to get any type of response. I’m so disappointed because I have loved this app for so many years and relied on it to keep me informed of any severe weather at home and also where our kids in college are and now I’m trying to find another app that even compares to the way this one used to work.
Wow a lot of fake 5 star reviews
by NikolaiGranakov on 2019/08/26 17:27
Hi, my name is John Fujita-Beaufort Weathervane and I was an Air Force hurricane hunter pilot before I became a tornado chaser for a big name weather company and I’ve got 45 years of experience with forecasting, even though I’m only 38 - Oh, I didn’t mention, I was orbiting the moon on a secret weather mission to see if there was moon weather, and I was going so fast that time actually slowed down, so that’s why my earth age is 38 but I have those seven extra years of experience. Relativity is a crazy thing! Anyway, this app has brought me so much joy that it brings tears to my eyes every time I open it on my phone. Most of the time it crashes, like that one time my C-130 crashed while hunting a hurricane, and the app has reduced functionality like, well, that one time when my C-130 lost an engine Come on people this is a terrible app, please review to balance out all of these fake five star ratings. Storm by WU was the best weather app ever, and I gave this app a chance for a long, long time, waiting for it to mature and it has just gotten worse. I’ve never been more sad about a piece of software in my life. 1 star because it works about 20% of the time, because of the baffling amount of patently fake five star reviews, and because I can’t assign a lower score.
IBM Downgraded Weather App
by Concerned 343 on 2018/09/14 00:05
Don’t waist your time with this ‘upgrade’ —IBM’s ‘new’ Storm Radar app is sadly disappointing and wholly inferior to the original Weather Underground Storm App. It’s a shame to see that IBM purchased the Weather Channel and Weather Underground with the long term intent of implementing dated technology, removing superior competition, and providing decreased value. The original Storm app had easy access to everything one needs in a weather app, with the ‘new’ Storm Radar Weather app by IBM one would have to use multiple weather apps to even get anywhere near the performance of the original and still they would be lacking. The original WU Storm App helped my family weather Hurricane Harvey and saved us once from running directly in to the path of a tornado. Sad to think that IBM would purposely take away the public’s choice and access to an app that helped so many during Hurricane Harvey and could help countless others in the future. It’s also sad to see that someone is trying to raise the ratings on this app with all fake 5 Star one line reviews rather than fix the app’s issues or bring back the original Storm app features — in one month the rating has gone from 2.9 to 4.4 yet nothing has changed with the app.
Hoping for more
by 4HisPleasure on 2018/09/12 12:16
This app, which replaced Storm, looks pretty cool with the theming. Unfortunately, that’s about all I have good to say about it. It has just a fraction of Storm’s features and customizability. I sorely miss seeing more details like dewpoint, cloud cover, and pressure in the daily/hourly forecast graphs. And those graphs need to be full screen instead of trimmed down to fit just three days/six hours at a time. The map options are drastically reduced from Storm’s, too. I could go on and on about what this app is missing in comparison. It just baffles me that they removed the best weather app (Storm) before releasing those features in this app. I’m not sure who this app is targeting. On the one hand, there is the great future radar, but some of the forecast details we weather aficionados use to understand what’s coming and how to plan are missing. Hopefully this is just an interim, growing pains gap (akin to Apple Final Cut Pro’s 7 to X), and the missing features will work their way into subsequent versions. In the mean time, this app doesn’t really offer much, so I will have to use a combination of weather apps and websites to piece together the full picture.
Great App though Recent Location Searches Cannot be Cleared
by Brian Cox on 2019/05/18 03:34
I’ve purchased and used at least twelve other weather apps over the last seven (7) plus years and this app is simply a superior product overall with side-by-side comparisons. That said, with the latest app software update, I am now unable to clear any of the many recent current searched weather locations. When I attempt to slide the location text to clear it, the app now crashes and closes up leaving me to start the weather app process all over again. This has become increasingly frustrating and leaving me considering going back to inferior yet more reliable Weather Bug or the original AccuWeather apps. I’ve removed and reinstalled this app with no success whatsoever when rebooted. I hope that this issue is fixed soon as the number of searched locations is well over twenty (20) and currently populating more every day. I’m sure that this cannot help the overall speed and performance of my less than two (2) years old iPad Pro and less than one (1) year old iPhone 8.
I really liked this app but.......
by Techick74 on 2019/09/06 13:30
I guess because I chose not to upgrade to premium I don’t get to see the weather at all. The last couple of times I’ve gone to the app all I get are dashes where information should be. My saved locations were gone so I entered them again to see if that would help, no. I refuse to put an app (that I can get the same information else where for free)on the payroll. I’m only willing to make a one time payment. Update..... The makers of this app contacted me after my first review assuring me that I would still receive basic weather information to keep me safe in the case of hazardous weather. I just went through a hurricane here in NC no thanks to this app. The entire time leading up to the storm all I got was a picture of the continents, I couldn't even zoom in on my location to see anything. I got the notification for a warning but because I couldn't open my location I didn’t know how to get to the warning. I probably wouldn't say anything now but this morning I got another notification for a weather warning. Why is it I can now get all the detail I could ever want about a storm that has already passed.
Worthless, unreliable. Don’t waste your time
by BrrKsu on 2019/06/21 20:28
This app was amazing a few years ago. Why is there always a need to take something great and “update” it to something that is trash. Every time I open the app, it shows me as somewhere in Africa (I’m in the Midwest USA). When I click the arrow to find my location, the app crashes and closes. Upon reopening the app, it shows my location and sometimes shows the current radar. It no longer shows weather alerts (highlighted counties with active weather watches and warnings), even with the “alerts” button selected, each time I open the app, I have to turn on storm tracks and lightning alerts because it doesn’t remember my preferences anymore. I’ve tried emailing Storm support, but get no response. Ever since “the weather channel” name was added to the app, it turned into trash. TWC is worthless in my opinion anyway. Bring back the old intellicast the way it was before TWC “fixed it”, or at least have your developers read the reviews and fix the bugs. I am away from home a lot of the time and rely on apps like this for weather alerts. It’s just too unreliable anymore. Fix it please
Way worse than the last version
by Thaddeusrex on 2018/10/01 15:12
What’s up with this?! Why did you launch a new app with a fraction of the functionality? I can’t find any of the old options I liked in the older version, like the wind arrows, which were actually amazingly accurate. Much worse. Revert back please. The loading is horrendous, especially the tropical storm/hurricane tracks, which are the most critical. It’s basically random as to whether storms will show up on my iPad screen or not. I open the app, then sit and stare at it for several minutes. Sometime none will load, so I zoom the view in and out, and sometimes that eventually works. Sometimes some storms will load, but not others. After all that, I still keep going back to the old version to view the wind arrows (which are my favorite feature, and are gone now), and going through the “OOPS, there’s an upgrade!” Screen, just so I can see where the arrows go into a tight circle, which indicates a hurricane. The arrows are so accurate, last year they predicted hurricanes before any service, or other data did! Bring back the arrows!
Sadly not what it used to be
by joshybigmac on 2019/08/17 20:07
I downloaded this app about 5 months ago and it was amazing to use. I used it almost every day and had some very useful and insightful information that I like to look at when viewing the weather and the radar. Recent updates have since stripped away all of the functionality that I used to enjoy in favor of a bogus $20 annual fee which wouldn’t be so bad if you weren’t additionally extorted by a completely useless app for those who don’t wish to pay. I know this company knows how to do premium — the main The Weather Channel app introduced a premium program a couple months back as well, but instead of forcing users to pay by excluding features they already used, new and exciting features were made available on top of the free experience if they so wished to use them. I don’t understand why the same company could find it so hard to just do the same thing across all their apps. I’ll be sure to telling the people whom I recommended this app to to uninstall it if they haven’t already made the good decision to use the storage this app occupies for something actually worth keeping.
layers once free, now a premium purchase! What happened?!!
by Eagles215 on 2019/07/18 01:40
many of the layers once free have been taken away and now are only available as a premium purchase. This also applies to some really basic layers you’d think would be free; such as satellite cloud cover and wind speed just to name a couple. This App was always somewhat buggy, but was still a must have for any weather geek. Now it’s just a simple weather app that cant stand apart from the pack after taking so much away once given as free and/or considered a basic feature and locking them behind a premium pay wall. I HIGHLY suggest looking elsewhere for a weather app. One that doesn’t drastically change their business model just to sell you something once given for free or considered to be an industry standard/basic weather feature. This is my first ever review left for an App if that tells you anything. I really hope this App comes back around and they resolve any internal differences, cause it really was once a great app. Not worth the price of admission today with the added concern of company’s unstable nature toward a business structure to build around.
Cluttered and counter intuitive
by Beernun on 2019/04/15 00:21
This app was great in its previous form. Now it’s an annoying mess. It’s got so much information in it, but the UI is horrible. It covers the map and only gives a tiny window to view. How many different ways to I have to turn off the animation of the Map? There are so many warning larders turned on that I can’t see THE MAP. I’ve turned them all off and there’s still several on that can’t be deactivated. The only good thing about this app is the lightning strike warnings. The previous incarnation of this app was still better at it though. When I’m trying to find the weather conditions I want to know now, not after if turned off a bunch of layers, then stopped the reader animation, and pressed the now button 3 times to get it to the current radar, then accidentally changed the location of the forecast by putting my finger on the side of the screen. This app has become a total mess. You can have all the information possible, but it’s useless because the UI is so bad that I do to want to use the app.
Paying for this app for the Third time!
by IroqAtty on 2019/08/13 00:55
So a few years ago I bought this app for a couple bucks, and it was a great companion to the weather channel app during stormy weather. It was a phenomenal app that I still miss in bad weather. After a couple years TWC discontinued that app and migrated to the *new* storm app. I paid a couple bucks (again) and got a app with reduced functionality, but it had weather boxes and lightning strikes. So I swallowed the loss and eventually sought out another app that had storm tracks and timing and some of the other functionality of the old app. Now Storm is insisting that I pay a few more bucks to continue doing the same thing I already paid for it to do, lightning and severe boxes, and that it was already doing just a few weeks ago. So now do I invest a few more bucks in an app that has now proven itself unreliable? Especially after I had to pay for a competitor app to fill the gaps left by the last migration? Perhaps I’ll delete Storm for the time being, and see if I miss it next time there’s a storm, the way I miss the original app.
The only good thing about this app is watching it crash and burn.
by Grrrrrr4411 on 2019/07/20 21:44
Ok. I’ve hated this app from day one. It was a huge step back from WU. But watching the developers dig themselves into a deeper hole? It’s getting to be entertaining at least! I found new apps after a dangerous situation that Storm showed nothing and we had hail and tornados. I contacted the developers and got the canned responses of thank you for your feedback. There was a glimmer of hope when they added storm tracks again several months ago. It still sucked. But slightly better. And now we have to pay for it for premium in a subscription model? I deleted it today as these bad storms are moving through and I can’t get any info on them. How is it that the weather channel app is this horrible? I’m so disappointed they bought out WU and ruined it. If you want a basic radar that’s horribly inaccurate- there are a ton of free apps that will give you that. Weathermate, Aeries Pulse and Accuweather are my go to-s now if anyone is looking for help. None of the three give me everything I want but together have what WU used to.
Has become useless since TWC/IBM took over
by cobaltjump on 2019/08/16 21:25
App has slid downhill for ages now. Really, how does an app manage to get WORSE? I had been a paid subscriber $0.99 month for years to get the AD free experience. Started having issues with radar images not loading requiring an app restart. Then it started serving me ads even though I was paying to remove them. Numerous emails and support requests sent over 2 months with no response. Finally canceled subscription last month and was going to give them one more shot with re-subscription at the .99 rate when it officially expired a day from now with hopes it would reset my subscription token or whatever. Now I see they want 3.99 a MONTH to remove ads and see basic weather data other apps offer for free. No way I am taking that chance with no previous response to support requests. Putting 75% of a weather app behind a pay wall....hilarious. I am preparing to free up some storage space by removing this app. “Weather Mate” as mentioned by another reviewer has some amazing features and customization for free.
Remember when...?
by Tardy_Slip on 2019/08/23 03:29
Remember when this application used to be hands down the best detailed weather tracking application one could have a smart phone? Remember when you could track an individual storm’s direction, wind velocity, cloud Atlas, windshear, and other detailed information so as to predict the storms severity relative to your specific location? And, Remember when it was completely free? I don’t mean this basic unintelligible version that exists now,... that you’re forced to get whenever you buy a new phone, or because they shut down support for the previous version. And to the developers… Don’t patronize us with the fact that you charge a subscription to provide a more intuitive ad free experience. We had that already that (ad banners were minuscule at most) and you decided since you bought the rights you could take that away from us. I realize that legally yet immorally, you can. But you didn’t even make the app better, you made it completely and appallingly worse. We prefer the original app. Give it back!
SO Disappointing
by Mummal66 on 2019/08/03 13:02
Like all of the other reviews state this app is subpar at best. Doesn’t even deserve one star. I miss, miss, miss the old Intellicast app! The “upgrade” to storm has just steadily gone downhill and now I have to PAY for features that have always been standard features. Additionally 50% of the time when I open my app it is showing the continent of Africa on my screen. I have learned that the app is not functioning at this point because if I touch on the screen the app crashes. Also most of the time when I open the app there is no radar showing. I have to widen my view and then the radar will pop onto the screen. Plus the satellite view is terrible! If there are clouds showing I can’t see them! Only if I widen my view can I see them very faintly. Have tried adjusting the opacity which does nothing. Of course like others I could go on and on. And the few Developer responses on here are BS! It’s 100% about profit. They know how popular this app has been for years and are trying to capitalize on that. Don’t waste your time people!
Not the original Storm
by Tanzerbet on 2019/08/06 16:47
Used the original Storm for years and really liked it, particularly the layout and detail panels. It was my go-to source for weather info. Switched to this when prompted by the developers and found it to be less informative with features such as boating weather removed. New version is clunky, slow, less intuitive, less detailed, and the dreadful ads are awful. Can't wait for the next severe weather to creep up so that I can wait on an ad to load before I can see a storm track. I actually get frustrated with app now and look for weather information elsewhere. Update: So here I am watching a strong cell with heavy lightning move toward me at the coast and I can't see a storm track or get the animation to work on iPhone. Thought I'd give the app some more time to prove itself but now share the sentiments of another reviewer...that depending on this app can be dangerous, even fatal. At least the notifications work so I know to tune into another weather map. Please give us back the original Storm!
Old app was better
by sterlingwynn on 2019/02/06 15:20
Update: After reading all the bogus 5 star reviews, I downgraded my review. Compared to the old app, this is almost a zero. The current weather for my location is usually off, weather channel always uses an airport that is 25 miles away across a reservoir for data, then applies it to the town 12 miles away from me, and gives me the same data as both of those. Weather underground used to have data that more closely matched the readings we were receiving on site. The nearby highway weather station on 511 is much better at current conditions. Previous: The weather alerts are meaningless in this app. Instead of real time and real details, an alert will state something like “four minutes ago”; it stays that way even if it has been hours. The old app used to state a time and a quantity or value, such as inches of precipitation, mph of wind, and so on. Also, the notifications don’t show up in the app, only in your Notification Center.
You finally ruined it
by JRedPark on 2019/08/20 00:19
At one time Storm was the best. When the Weather Channel acquired it the “improvements” made it much harder to use and also made it ugly. Although unhappy with it, I have continued to use it. I even paid yearly to remove the adds, I supported it because it was the best. After it was redone to the terrible interface, all memberships were voided and you couldn’t pay to remove adds. Annoying, but eventually they brought being able to remove adds for a monthly fee, so I did again. I have paid now to have adds removed for years... but the last 6 months or so even though I paid every month, the app constantly displayed adds. I begrudgingly still used it because it still had the best data even though a stupid and cumbersome interface. This new change in the last two weeks making you pay an exorbitant amount the the data thats been free for YEARS is finally too far and too greedy. I have PAID for YEARS. I am done with you guys. You have finally ruined it. Great job.
Has declined since intellicast...
by KAny04 on 2018/09/18 21:39
As both a pilot and a weather enthusiast I started out with intellicast. The original storm upgrade was decent but this most recent Storm Radar can easily be considered a downgrade from its predecessor. I am in agreement with many of the other reviews stating that the original app could have just been improved upon. Much of the information that had set this program apart from every other app has been removed. The removal of frontal information, pressure systems, and wind overlays (just to start) hinder the apps capability of being considered an advanced meteorological tool and more so places it in the category with every other weather app. The only difference is that it’s slightly less user friendly but with less to offer in exchange for its complexity. What used to be a very capable program for years is now heavily at risk of becoming easily replaced by a couple of the other apps that also offer detailed meteorological information. As a fan I hope they do better. Also, the canned responses don’t help. Update: Will be deleting due to the forced update with diminished performance. There are better radar/meteorology apps out there. 2nd Update: Notice this score is now below 3.0. There is a reason for this. The old app was easily greater than 4.0 consistently. Final Update: This app was at a 2.5. Then they deleted all of the negative ratings from disappointed users. Now it’s back at a 4.3, yet somehow, the exact same app. Interesting.
All aboard the Paywall Train!
by Kitsune-242 on 2019/08/13 02:55
I used to love this app. Honestly. Used it at least once a day, multiple times if there was a big storm in the area. But this recent update? Added on a new “premium” version that has hidden a number of previously-free features behind a paywall. Want to track a storm’s projected path? Fork over the cash. Want to check to see if/where a tornado was reported in that storm cell that’s right over your house? Better pay up. It’d be different if these were new features. But they’re not. They’re the features that made me an avid fan of this app in the first place. They’re what made me recommend this app to anybody that lives in an area with unpredictable weather. These features were what set this app apart from the rest. But now they’ve been shuffled behind a paywall that seems like nothing but a cash grab, creating a base app that pales in comparison to what it used to be. I expect more features will be stuck behind the paywall soon enough. Time to start looking for a new weather app.
Terrible when compared to Org STORM APP
by Bob Griffith III on 2019/01/13 20:07
Having been in Aviation meteorological weather forecasting since 1969, I can say beyond any argument whatsoever this replacement app to the original “Storm app” is absolutely terrible! It’s hard to navigate, it’s screen is anything but pleasant to look at, it navigates very slowly, it does not give nearly the same amount of weather reporting stations, and so on and so on and so on! I just cannot fathom why they (weather channel group) would have taken The original Storm app and could have ever thought it’s replacement they have was equal to or better to the Original Storm app. I wish there ego was such that they would realize this and go back to the original Storm app in it’s entirety. In other words, what they have now is just terrible at very best. I truly miss the original Storm app and on a professional level it would serve them much better by bringing it back. I simply cannot express that enough! Please, please, please bring the original Storm app back on line!
Some good, some not as good
by ciriousclouds on 2018/09/23 03:23
Compared to the old app before it became the new “Storm” there is only one thing I like better, and that even comes with a “but it doesn’t” caveat. I like that it is faster to pinpoint a specific location anywhere across the country by tapping instead of having to write in a place name. But, I liked the way you could save your frequently used places and go directly to them. I liked the ease of getting the customized overlays better in the old app. I still haven’t found out how to see jet stream patterns or surface wind speed patterns. I also think the forecasted radar view seems to be using a model which must say “always predict more rain in 12 hours”. I’d like to see a long range forecast, (even though I never trust them as being more accurate than what I used to do with the radar images, but now I don’t even trust the radar forecast)
Irrelevant Weather Warning
by Ann Marie_13 on 2019/05/24 03:38
I’ve never liked this app all that much, but I didn’t really feel much need to find a new one until now. In addition to the slow/glitchy radar, I just received a tornado warning that wasn’t actually relevant to me, which caused undue stress. The alert said for my entire county, but it was actually only relevant to the opposite part of the county from where I live, and I don’t have that part of the county listed as a favorite either. FIX THIS ASAP and only deliver tornado warnings to those currently in the specific warning area or those who have a town in the specific warning area as a “favorite”. You’re only causing undue stress when you send a warning like that out to people it’s not relevant to. Plus people will be less likely to take your future warnings seriously if the warnings they receive now are irrelevant. Very irresponsible and I would have expected better. I will be looking for a new app that is more useful in general and more precise with the tornado warnings.
Not worth the memory
by g33q on 2018/11/08 11:19
Storm Radar isn’t the worst weather app but it’s also far from the best... the only reason I haven’t deleted it yet is that it has potential and I keep hoping they will upgrade the features to match their claims. The biggest blunder they have is there is no way of setting minimums of what is considered a storm so basically if a storm watcher reports anything happening within 300 miles it shows as a storm even though the storm track is nowhere near the users location and is unwanted information. This means is anyone reporting reports a brief sprinkle it’s considered a storm and it pops up the same as if there was a imminent flood situation. The other problem that needs immediate attention is it is not intuitive as to how to set it up. There ought to be a how-to manual manual built in at least until they figure how to make it general public friendly...
Wow, this app is something else...
by tribblepuppy on 2019/05/16 19:19
... well, it would be something else if it actually worked on my iPhone 6s. I have thrown away and re-downloaded this app many times now, and it still continues to freeze up. It’s very frustrating that if I try to perform any function such as enlarge or reduction the screen, change locations, or turn on or off the animation, it’s like the app needs to think about whether it wants to reply or not. Sometimes deleting the app is my only option, but even that doesn’t help. I sure wish you had done more beta testing before making us throw away an app that actually worked pretty well. I wish the old app was still available, I would gladly pay to use it. And as an aside, could you make the lightening indicators easier to see? It’s hard to see them when there are many other colors on the screen. Maybe a black outline on the lightening would help?
Poor and unnecessary replacement
by April girl on 2019/01/07 10:19
Storm was a beautiful and elegant weather app. This is a hot mess. Where do I begin? With Storm, I could easily move among my saved locations, as opposed to this "improvement" that has me tapping all over the place trying to get back to the location I want. Storm had easy-to-read tiles that gave as much or as little info as one wanted, including a tile with alert information and graphics that showed what the alert was for. Then there's the super useful lightning radar. It even had a handy dandy thermometer graphic that showed the historic, current, and record highs and lows, a feature, hard as I've tried, I cannot find on any other weather app. PLEASE, PLEASE being back the old Storm. Until then, I'll be scrolling through the four other weather apps I have along with a bookmarked almanac for historical data. This app is not worth the space on my phone. Consider putting effort into fixing the app instead of writing all those fake 5-star reviews.
Ruined a great App
by unhappy05192018! on 2019/07/17 02:00
When this was weather underground there was much better data. You could see weather fronts storm tracks as well as many other great data points. Once the weather channel took over they took away most of this functionality. I submitted many requests to bring back the features from the original app. Recently they have taken another step backwards and now they charge for basic functionality like viewing satellite. Don’t waste your time with this as the standard weather channel app provides more and better data free. If you want extra data points look at the Accuweather app. The main reason I have removed this app is because the old weather underground app still allows for the ability to see fronts and satellite. Storm tracking was nice and I would not be opposed to paying for it, but it is disappointing that all of the features that once made the app excellent are removed or now you have to pay for them.
Problems have cropped up with the latest version.
by eclectichead on 2019/07/21 12:04
The latest version of this app has created problems and emails to support have gone unanswered. First, I purchased an annual plan to add the premium features such as add free and more sophisticated radar features, but the app will not enable those features despite my verifying the subscription and even uninstalling and reinstalling the app. Second, the hourly display does not work properly. It gives a blank screen initially, but upon scrolling to the left, you do get a display of hourly conditions, but this is devoid of any info as to which day is being displayed. Finally I find it disappointing that there is no option to display so-called “real-feel” in any aspect of this app. If these components were to be fixed I would give five stars to the app, since the rest of the app gives a great display.
Extremely unhappy. Bring back the original storm app.
by Kuzanut on 2019/08/21 19:48
The Storm radar app was supposed to be the best thing since sliced bread. Honestly after almost 2 years I can say I am extremely disappointed. Time and time again I find that the radar glitches. This afternoon. There is a storm front approaching. If you hit play on the radar it show us about 60 miles away. Then it disappears and about an hour into the future the front reappears. This has happend more and more often. I loved the original storm app. I understand that it’s no longer supported but as a business that does weather. That puts out an app called Storm Radar. One would think the app would work. I live in northern NJ. We have 3 radar stations that cover this area. So it’s not like there is a lack of data. What is the problem with the app? Please someone contact me and talk to me. I need an app like this for my business but continually find this one less and less reliable. Thanks
Needs some tweaks to match the original storm app
by J.A.Moore on 2019/07/11 00:44
Update July 10, 2019 New version now requires a paid subscription to see weather alerts on the map. They did not work for me in the previous version so not going to pay and not know if they work now - maybe they do? I would think having the basic weather alert location on the map would be a base feature. Time to look for a new app or just use the NOAA web site - which is the source of most all weather info. Latest version does not seem to show the alert areas on map. Alerts are listed when you happen to select a location, but you cannot see what area is covered. I have toggled all the options and even reinstalled the app. There is also some lag when should the radar data. This might be network related as sometimes it does seem to work. Other time I have to zoom in or out for it to trigger a fetch of the data. Previous review: Most of the features seem to be here that were in the older Storm app - which was my go-to weather app. Some things are missing but maybe I just cannot find them: Personal weather stations - on map and get details - i have my own station on weather Underground and would like to see what the weather is at home. Cloud cover % in the future chart - used to be with precipitation % - I used this to know if it was going to be a good night for star watching
What were you guys thinking?!!?
by Marshal law69 on 2019/07/20 05:25
WOW! I truly didn’t want to see one of my favorite, and otherwise; extremely useful, usable, and all-round great, info-packed weather apps, get “gutted” like so much road-side carrion, picked clean of virtually all good content and information, the user might actually find beneficial in the first place! Then, if THAT insult to the apps’ original creators was not insulting enough, you’ve finally decided, “NOW is the time to add insult to injury, and charge the users a PREMIUM for the privilege, while simultaneously providing FAR LESS USABLE INFORMATION than what they had in the first place!” (MINUS THE COST...MINUS THE INSULT TO CONSUMER INTELLIGENCE.) Well, hopefully, one day, some decent- genuinely, ethically motivated developer, decides to take on all of these money-hungry, fiscally myopic corporatists- reminding them that neither: are ALL consumers, total idiots, nor are they equally entitled to “far less, while charging them a premium”. Thanks for the great app W.U. while it lasted.
Nowhere near as good as its predecessor
by iPhannahPi on 2018/12/22 17:04
UPDATE 2: Why don’t these people get it? After a year plus of terrible reviews, they STILL don’t understand. Evidently the pointy-hair boss in Dilbert is running the ship. This app is crap! UPDATE: And the latest update wants you to pay $0.99 per month for an ad-free experience??? They must be joking or out of their minds. Why do they think people will pay to suffer through a lousy app experience with limited functionality just because it doesn't have annoying pop-up ads any more? It is an INFERIOR app and will still be inferior without ads. The no-longer-supported Storm app was WAY better. No surface winds or jet stream flows in this one. No maps showing front locations and types. This is NOT an improvement! Your responses say you will be working to make this the best radar app. How 'bout aspiring to make it the best all-around WEATHER app like the old Storm was. And hurry! Seems like you will be losing customers fast if you don't.
Great app! Until greed set in...
by shelasgoodfello on 2019/08/04 13:00
I like this app. When Wunderground took over Intellicast and took away many of the maps and features that I liked, my brother introduced me to this app. It’s features were similar to those I was used to and it was easy to learn. However, apparently three weeks ago there was an update to this app that made all of the features that I liked about this app part of a “Premium” package. I don’t mind paying for what I use. That’s fair. I do however expect to pay a fair market price for what I use. I wish the developers of this app had followed Apple’s example. What Apple charges for cloud storage is reasonable. What they are charging for the “Premium” package is excessive for its purpose and use. Very disappointing. 😳😔 Also, the charge for “Premium “ is not mentioned in the App Store description. Please update that as well.
I give up
by nfahlgren on 2018/11/26 00:33
I loved the Weather Underground Storm app. It was definitely an advanced app that did more than just present the user with forecasts. This app was meant to replace Storm, and maybe the developers had different goals for this app than the last, but it’s definitely not a replacement for Storm. I have tried to use Storm Radar as my main weather app for the last 6 months or so as it’s okay (I would give it 3 stars but they lose one more for throwing away an already good product) and I figured it would gain features over time to regain things lost in the conversion. That hasn’t really happened though. It’s just stayed the same stripped down version of Storm that it always was. So I’m done waiting for regaining features we lost in the transition and I’m moving on to another app and deleting this one. I’m giving Aeris Pulse Weather a shot if that helps anyone else looking for a Storm replacement.
Wow. Premium didn’t Add layers it just took them away
by My-thoughts-as-stars on 2019/07/17 00:04
All the new premium layers are supposed to be so flashy and impressive except for the part where most of them were previously included and just free!!! Of Course GEOS-16 is premium but Why the hell would ADVISORIES be anything but free??? Also in rural as F#%& nowhere the “local storm reports” layer in this app was about the only way I could find out if there would be down trees or flooding on the roads when I drive to work before sunrise (most places don’t just have access to 911 call center reports) I’m a broke student driving 45 minutes each way to work for free in a hospital. It sure would be nice if I could access the information about what roads will get me there safely! And even though I’m no where near California it still feels like bad taste to put Earthquake information behind a paywall right now!!!! Really disappointed in the weather channel today. Really.
Summary: annoying
by Vilago on 2018/09/26 03:36
Not sure why they needed to change to a different storm app. All the reviews here indicate a step backward with this release yet they continue to ignore the comments. The old one had a better layout and could see daily, hourly and current temp and weather at a glance as a small banner at the bottom, with radar front and center how I like it. Now there’s an obtrusive banner at the top middle which only shows current conditions and also partially obscures the map and you have to move it out of the way. Only able to see hourly if I press the banner then scroll. annoying! Have to close the banner to see the radar which I don’t like. If you click anywhere on the map it changes your location which isnt intuitive and you can’t switch between saved locations. Please just keep the old version alive and don’t kill it at the end of the month! or at least allow you to switch to the old view layout...
Great app gone bad
by CAE55 on 2019/08/29 11:39
Ever since they “updated” this app it hasn’t worked right. It continually crashes and can sometimes take several restarts to get it working. When the app does start, not all of the features often load. I had actually purchased the premium version when it came out to have all the features, but most of those don’t work and also cause crashes when I try to use them. This problem is occurring on all of my devices and my wife also has problems with her devices. All of my devices are up to date and I have tried contacting support a couple of times, but I have gotten no response. By the way, this isn’t just me. I have asked a couple of fiends, to whom I originally recommended, about whether it works for them. Each of them have gone to other apps out of frustration. I think it’s time to give up and look for another app. It’s too bad since this used to be the best weather app out there.
Extremely Disappointing
by zmqpal102938 on 2019/07/30 22:37
Recent upgrades, post Intellicast, have been rather disappointing. At first, the change over to Storm had some excellent features that were improvements over Intellicast. Then came Storm Radar...In the beginning, I was having issues with it crashing almost every time I opened it. Now, when i open it, it opens a map of the continent of Africa. Then, when I choose my location, there is no information available, not even in the drop down. I have to close the APP and then reopen it in order to view conditions at my location. Also, there are now permanent icons on the screen which are totally useless. They just take up space on the screen. Also, I can’t even look at the previous 2 hours of HD Radar, or any of the many other features that were available at no cost. I am so disappointed that The Weather Channel has come to this point. I am ready to find another provider of weather data.
So very disappointed.
by Bassntreble on 2019/07/10 16:45
I used an earlier version of this app, and was very happy with it. It was my go-to when bad weather came up. Then, my beloved app was thrown away in favor of this pale imitation. It uses the Weather Channel’s radar map (I’ve got that app already, thanks.), which is not as up to date in real time (when you live in tornado-prone areas IT MATTERS). The storm tracks feature was one of my favorite things about the old app, but have been buggy at best in this version. I had to turn them on every time I loaded the app, and then they wouldn’t show the directional cone unless I zoomed in on it. Now, to top it all off, they have taken away all the severe weather features (including storm tracks) from the free version and are expecting me to pay a MONTHLY fee to get them back. If it were a one time app purchase I would have considered it, but based on previous performance I’m not committing to a monthly payment. Don’t waste your money!
Original Storm app was far better
by NorthernByte on 2019/05/21 06:06
Edit: now the app is super broken. Keeps crashing and if it doesn’t crash it freezes up. Can’t save any type of multi layer radar in custom mode. It’s horrible! Edit: What update? You haven’t listened to us at all. Ad free, who cares. Bring back the original Storm app. You guys shut down the servers for the Storm app that I used for several years and made us download and use this app instead. This app doesn’t even compare to the quality from the other app. The map is lacking so much with layers and data! ie high/low fronts and severe weather outlooks. Its impossible to look around the map also with out touching and changing location and then have to jump all the way back by touching the arrow icon. Wish you guys guys would bring back the Storm app or just brought all that over to this new Storm radar app or something. I am very displeased and disappointed!! Please add new features!
⛔️ This is NOT the app you're looking for
by rculler on 2019/08/19 20:01
I have used this app for years after it became the forced replacement for Storm, a perfectly fine weather app by this developer. It offered excellent features and accurate predictions for free so long as you were willing to tolerate the ads. With the recent “update,” however, all of that has changed. Many of the features have been removed from the app dumbing it down and predictions seem less accurate. The ads of course remain and there is no visible improvement in functionality. What is clear is that the developers have decided to remove functionality from the app and hold previous features hostage in order to extort a sizable subscription fee from long-standing users. Like many other disappointed reviewers, I will look elsewhere for a new weather app.💔 MY NO CHARGE UPDATE: I have found several free alternative weather apps with many of the features removed from this version: Windy Wunderground Accuweather I have settled on my local TV station's app which is much like the original Storm app. I like getting the lightning and storm alerts, storm tracks and even access to nearby webcams because it can literally be raining on one side of the street and not the other. Look around and I am positive you will find a better app than this hobbled version of a formerly great app.
Broken - inferior to old Storm, crashes ever use
by acrisis on 2019/07/17 11:32
And now we get to ADS + PREMIUM UNLOCKING layers. What a load ... “weather mate pro” is now my primary weather app, I rather pay a small dev team and give feedback for improvements than wasting my time and money with TWC and STORM issues. STORM ... it is 2019 ... over one year from the original boondoggle and usability is still NOT fixed!! The old storm was faster and more practical than this new Storm Radar, because upon opening old Storm had that all the essential data I want loaded on the home screen ... with Storm Radar you wait for the spinning animations to come in and still don’t have the data for the rest of the day ... nor the whole week, without extra tapping and scrolling. Had paid for ad-free, so lost that. Radar seems off, coloring wise overstating intensity ... still crashes every day ... loading radar data seems fixed now ... but the app is INFERIOR to the old STORM.

Glitchier with every up date
by unimetrix on 2019/09/19 02:39
Hi, I used to use this app with my student when covering the Weather and Climate Unit. However, after the last few updates the app has become a little more difficult to use and it glitches (on my iPad Pro and iPad Air) every time I tried to pull detail weather data. I had done everything I can do but the glitches still prevail. I still using the app for personal information, but it is sad to see a great product losing it quality. 🥺

by tangerineislime on 2019/09/19 01:07
I get paying for no ads and some extra features but you guys literally got rid of everything that was useful about this app (lightning alerts, satellite cloud cover, layers in general) and put it behind a paywall. Literally every free weather app shows at least cloud cover. Thanks for the update nobody asked for. The original Storm app was great and you guys successfully destroyed it.

Consistently gives the pertinent information needed to make decisions regarding actions to take to protect the ones you love. Many other Apps repeatedly interview news caster to news caster trying to validate their projections and opinions. I like the latest facts. Good or bad we know it’s real and valuable information. Your App shows unbiased facts backed up by real data from reputable sources. Thank you for staying true. Far too many “News Outlets”seem to want to sensationalize what’s happening even to the extent of intervening their own reporters until they get across a message no matter how slanted it may be. Please keep up the great job of getting the real information out to as many folks as possible. Thanks again for keeping things real,relatable,reliable current and on point. Sincerely LS
One of the worst weather apps
by b-lake624 on 2019/09/18 21:14
The devs listened to legitimate complaints and revamped the interface. Now you can navigate the map without changing the forecast overview. Bravo. However the app layout is still very ugly, this is still a 2-3 year step backwards from the original storm app. I’m not sure why you can’t just take design cues from the original storm app. You literally stole the name after you bought Weather underground, why can’t you steal design? $20 a year for premium features??!?!!? What on earth do you think you provide for that price. The original storm app was absolutely better in every way and charged $2 a year. Please fire whoever is in charge of app development. A new direction is needed. Dark sky has a much prettier interface and is a 1 time $4 charge.

Got premium and did not find the 15+ radar layers they advertised. Contacted customer support and no reply. So this one star rating is the result.
Thanks for the upgrade.
by The Glad Scientist on 2019/09/18 09:47
I was a happy camper with storm till you counted down and forced Storm Radar on us. You are a sorry fraction of the program that I have loved for years. What we lost: wind direction surface or jet stream, frontal boundaries, H & L markers, hourly and daily projections and cloud tags that you could bet your life on. Now we’ve got a sorry radar map without current conditions and storm tags that are a fraction of what we had and times that often lag by an hour. Many a night I sat up watching cloud rotation and storm direction. Thanks for nothing.

Not as good as the old Storm radar app......
by Meissobored on 2019/09/18 00:52
The old WU’s Storm radar app was far superior than this app. The storm tracks showed rotation, hail size, and a decent threat analysis. This radar leaves a lot to be desired. If it isn’t brought up to the quality of WU’s Storm Radar, I will delete it and search for another radar that is as good as WU’s Storm Radar. I have the Weather Channel’s app and don’t use it that much because it doesn’t give me the info that I want, when I want it! If WU wants to bring the old Storm radar app back, I would be willing to subscribe to it because it is a valuable tool. The watch and warning colors need to be consistent with the old Storm Radar. At least they made sense!! UPDATE- Now that they have decided to charge for things that were usually included in the base app, this app is not worth even spending $0.01 on!! This app had the possibility of being one of the best radar apps on the market, but the Weather Channel’s greed and ineptitude will relegate this app to the trash bin! I will delete this app and stay with RadarScope. It has much better features and is a better overall radar program at the base level than this app will ever be even at the premium level. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MINEY OR TIME ON THIS APP! Download RadarScope. If you need a more detailed app, the Tier 2 level ($9.99 per year) is better than this app at the premium level! You can get Tier 1 access to RadarScope for $49.99 per year. It’s like having your own meteorologist on your iPhone or iPad!!
Great app, until you had to pay for everything.
by Agent592 on 2019/09/18 00:27
This was great until the last update and then you had to start paying for all the features. You were able to track storms better and you were able to see where they were going. Now you have to pay 19.99 for these features. I now just have this app on my phone as a backup to the WeatherChannel App.

by BrokenCylon on 2019/09/17 03:19
These short, poor grammar 5 star reviews are kind of suspicious...I mean, when you start reading things like: “Best app for me” or “Really think you coverage of the weather” & my favorite so far “Great warnings of things” it sets off red flags for false review farming that companies use which is truly unfortunate & disappointing...

I am not interested in hearing about hurricane warnings I live in the desert. How about giving me some options on warnings for sand storms and thunderstorms near me and let me turn off hurricane warnings that have no effect on me or my family. You need to let us select our notifications based upon our geographic location.

SLOW and unreliable - Fake Reviews
by Flying Non Stop on 2019/09/17 02:19
Horrible. BEWARE of fake 5 star reviews. This app fell from #7 to #12 in just a few weeks in the weather category. What does that tell you. Obviously they don’t care. They locked up existing functionality from the original app, for which you have to PAY FOR NOW since Weather Channel took over. The Radar has serious lag time between 10-15 minutes on average, rendering the app totally useless. A weather system will pass through before the radar shows it, and visa versa. Deleted the app, problem solved. Check out Weather Bug.

by jeffsaflyer on 2019/09/16 14:08
I just paid $19 to go full screen and ad free. There are now 4 large round map selection tabs that cover a large portion of the left side of the screen! I don’t know why they didn’t put those in the Overlay or Settings section to stay hidden from the main display. Or better yet, why didn’t you put the single de-clutter button at the top, bottom, or in a corner so that you could have a real “full screen” of display?? It was a waste of money, and I will just use a different weather radar app that offers a less cluttered display. This was a gross false advertisement to get you to spend $19!!

I lost all the great things about this app and had no idea what I did to change it. Then I was asked to pay for the things that I loved about the app. Come to find out not even lightening strikes are free any more. This app now only tells me if it’s raining or going to rain. I saw some other reviews and now know why the app had trouble loading recently. It was bought. Don’t remember by whom. Doesn’t matter. The app was great but not anymore.

Any other app does this for free and you can get it on a web site for free as well. These greedy app developers are ridiculous. Time to un-share my weather station and delete the app. The app used to give weather station owners add free on the app. Corporate greed - plain and simple

No ability to save custom map settings?
by fit_fiddler on 2019/06/16 20:32
I've tried many weather apps trying to find one that is simple, clean, and provides high quality weather data. My favorites have been this one and the Weather Underground app. Weather Underground was my staple app until I found this one, and this is my new go-to weather app for radar, daily, and hourly weather information. My favorite feature is the ability to set custom map overlays for viewing radar, temperature, weather alerts, etc, including the ability to re-order the overlays. However, when I close and re-open the app, the activated overlays and the order of those overlays is not maintained. It would be an even better app if the custom map overlays and the order of those overlays was maintained after closing and reopening the app.
A Strong Storm Arising
by Closet Meteorologist on 2019/04/22 15:58
Like many of you, at first glance I thought what a letdown and a waste the new Storm App is compared to the older version. Why would anyone put out a newer version that is inferior to their previous product? The new Storm Radar is an excellent app once you learn to navigate the new system. Just pulling down on the temperature banner provides you with much more in-depth weather data, probably more than the average person cares to see. Wondering about the weather in another place? Just tap on the map and the weather banner for that location appears, no need to search the city name. Need more detail, just slide downward on the banner and get your information. Monitoring storm systems? Add Storm Tracker in the Radar layers section at the bottom of the page. This will provide you Storm tracking data and by tapping on the storm marker, you will be provided all of the storm detail utilized by the meteorologists! The radar layers at the bottom of the page allows you to customize the data and alerts that you wish to receive. My daily job is heavily impacted by the weather and storms in general. Also, in my duties as a volunteer firefighter I monitor and depend upon accurate data for fire conditions and tracking storms. The Storm Radar tool is one of the top apps on my phone today. Load it and play with it to discover the many options available to monitor the weather the way you choose.
Sub par at best.
by SamThrash94 on 2018/09/21 00:01
I had storm for a very long time before this. Paid the $10 for it years ago. Loved it enough to move to the subscription service when they dropped that. I gave this a chance but I refuse to even pay $.99 for the ad free version of this. A few of the issues I have with this app: the touch location feature is horrible I find myself accidentally clicking a location while moving around the radar. The radar centric version with the expandable bottom banner was wonderful over this. Also, why are advisories different colors from the standard! This is probably the biggest complaint, I see a red box around my country and worry it’s a tornado warning... it isn’t. I miss the markups on the radar you could do on storm, you could measure the distance and use this to predict when the front would arrive. Used to love the storm tracks but now they just don’t mesh well, and guess what when I try and tap the storm track to get more information I end up changing the floater box location because it’s easy to accidentally tap a location on the map rather than the track. Lastly, the ability to use local radars was great! I loved being able to look at the velocity track and find the hook when there was a nearby tornado. All in all what was an extremely user friendly and advanced weather app has become another “simplistic” “pretty” ui for the masses, next they will push out an update to include a news feed like the weather channel.
New Storm not as good as old Storm
by Pmotz on 2019/07/13 12:14
Well the Weather Channel has now ruined a perfectly good app. Since they “remodeled” the Storm app into the new “Storm Radar” app it’s just not very good anymore. The layout is odd and not very intuitive, plus they changed one of the best things on Storm, the wind speed graphics. It was real easy to see the wind movement with many wind speed arrows, but now it is the occasional arrow and no movement, just a direction. No where near as useful. The radar is ok, but when you zoom in sometimes the rain/snow that was there disappears! Something is wrong there. The current weather info seems to be lacking a measure of precipitation in the last 24 hours, something that is pretty basic for weather information. After using this for several months (I would switch to another app, but they are all bad!), I’ve found it pretty flakey. Quite often the app just quits for no reason. Other times I try to move the map area and it takes 10-15 seconds for it to respond. I also do not like the radar to go into animation mode when I open the app and have configured it to not do that ... but it still does occasionally. This is all pretty sad given all the time they have had to work on this. Update, now they are pushing the “Pro” version and have some icons on the left side of the screen that are only active in the “Pro” version. Problem is they block the view on the iPhone, but you can’t get rid of them. Another annoying money grab ....
Am I missing something? (Updated again)
by Paper trumpet on 2019/08/22 03:04
It got better by only a little. Storm Radar is still an inferior app to what it replaced. Several updates to fix bugs and still hasn’t fixed most. App opens up showing Africa and the Eastern Atlantic. Must close the app and then reopen it to connect back with my location and current radar. I use it, but still wish for something better. Exploring other apps. All the comments below still apply. _________________________ The Storm Radar app is supposedly the replacement for the Storm app, which gave a notice of being discontinued May 24. I eventually found a very difficult to read graph of hourly temps and daily forecast. OK maybe for a LARGE display, but too tough to read on typical smartphone screens. I can save favorites of destinations I go for work but then constantly get unwanted weather notices for all of them. Haven’t found out how to turn that off while keeping my home location on. This is still NOT an improvement over the former app. It is a major step backwards. It is not intuitive. It is not easy to use or to read. I have to search for information where the former app gave great info all on one screen. Disappointed in the extreme. I’ve started using local news weather reports rather than turn this thing on. Hanging in there to SEE / HOPE it improves. Giving it the Summer months. If no better, it’s deleted.
Took a good app and ruined it
by dgjuytfv on 2019/05/16 20:00
This app is so disappointing, there’s probably too many things to list. First of all, it was way better when it was just Weather Underground. Once they forced you to move over from “Storm“, everything went downhill from there. First, I had paid for an ad free experience on Weather Underground (WU), and when they forced you to move over to Storm, they didn’t credit you for the ad free experience you had paid for on the original app. I have contacted them repeatedly, and have gotten no response whatsoever. Apparently they just don’t care about taking your money and then not providing the service you had paid for. Secondly, the underlying map in Storm isn’t nearly as good as the one they used to use when it was WU. Currently, you are unable to edit saved locations or recents. The delete button does not function. The satellite layer on the map doesn’t work. I’d say that their customer service sucked, but you would actually have to have made contact with someone to make that assessment. They can’t even be bothered to reach out to you when you have a problem and request some help. The list goes on and on. How do you take a product that was really good (WU), and then make it significantly worse, while effectively stealing people’s money for a service they had prepaid for. Truly mystifying. Don’t waste your time with this app.
Disappointed
by djdidjdbd chejisixj on 2019/08/24 03:10
I’ve used this app for years and loved it. I’ve recommended it to everyone I know. BUT something changed a few months ago after an update and now every single time I open the app it takes me to Africa. I live in Georgia. There is never a time now that it takes me to my location on the first time of opening the app. So I have to close it out and then open it back up again. My husband also has the app and his opens up to Africa as well and when you hit the location icon it takes you to our location but you can’t pull up any forecast information or see the radar or anything. It’s just blank. So no matter what you do you have to close it out and open it back up again. We’ve both tried deleting and reinstalling it. I even went on and paid for the pro version just to get it to stop doing what it was doing and if anything it got worse when I upgraded. I’ve sent messages to the developer (or whoever the feedback goes to) 3 different times and have yet to get any type of response. I’m so disappointed because I have loved this app for so many years and relied on it to keep me informed of any severe weather at home and also where our kids in college are and now I’m trying to find another app that even compares to the way this one used to work.
Wow a lot of fake 5 star reviews
by NikolaiGranakov on 2019/08/26 17:27
Hi, my name is John Fujita-Beaufort Weathervane and I was an Air Force hurricane hunter pilot before I became a tornado chaser for a big name weather company and I’ve got 45 years of experience with forecasting, even though I’m only 38 - Oh, I didn’t mention, I was orbiting the moon on a secret weather mission to see if there was moon weather, and I was going so fast that time actually slowed down, so that’s why my earth age is 38 but I have those seven extra years of experience. Relativity is a crazy thing! Anyway, this app has brought me so much joy that it brings tears to my eyes every time I open it on my phone. Most of the time it crashes, like that one time my C-130 crashed while hunting a hurricane, and the app has reduced functionality like, well, that one time when my C-130 lost an engine Come on people this is a terrible app, please review to balance out all of these fake five star ratings. Storm by WU was the best weather app ever, and I gave this app a chance for a long, long time, waiting for it to mature and it has just gotten worse. I’ve never been more sad about a piece of software in my life. 1 star because it works about 20% of the time, because of the baffling amount of patently fake five star reviews, and because I can’t assign a lower score.
IBM Downgraded Weather App
by Concerned 343 on 2018/09/14 00:05
Don’t waist your time with this ‘upgrade’ —IBM’s ‘new’ Storm Radar app is sadly disappointing and wholly inferior to the original Weather Underground Storm App. It’s a shame to see that IBM purchased the Weather Channel and Weather Underground with the long term intent of implementing dated technology, removing superior competition, and providing decreased value. The original Storm app had easy access to everything one needs in a weather app, with the ‘new’ Storm Radar Weather app by IBM one would have to use multiple weather apps to even get anywhere near the performance of the original and still they would be lacking. The original WU Storm App helped my family weather Hurricane Harvey and saved us once from running directly in to the path of a tornado. Sad to think that IBM would purposely take away the public’s choice and access to an app that helped so many during Hurricane Harvey and could help countless others in the future. It’s also sad to see that someone is trying to raise the ratings on this app with all fake 5 Star one line reviews rather than fix the app’s issues or bring back the original Storm app features — in one month the rating has gone from 2.9 to 4.4 yet nothing has changed with the app.
Hoping for more
by 4HisPleasure on 2018/09/12 12:16
This app, which replaced Storm, looks pretty cool with the theming. Unfortunately, that’s about all I have good to say about it. It has just a fraction of Storm’s features and customizability. I sorely miss seeing more details like dewpoint, cloud cover, and pressure in the daily/hourly forecast graphs. And those graphs need to be full screen instead of trimmed down to fit just three days/six hours at a time. The map options are drastically reduced from Storm’s, too. I could go on and on about what this app is missing in comparison. It just baffles me that they removed the best weather app (Storm) before releasing those features in this app. I’m not sure who this app is targeting. On the one hand, there is the great future radar, but some of the forecast details we weather aficionados use to understand what’s coming and how to plan are missing. Hopefully this is just an interim, growing pains gap (akin to Apple Final Cut Pro’s 7 to X), and the missing features will work their way into subsequent versions. In the mean time, this app doesn’t really offer much, so I will have to use a combination of weather apps and websites to piece together the full picture.
Great App though Recent Location Searches Cannot be Cleared
by Brian Cox on 2019/05/18 03:34
I’ve purchased and used at least twelve other weather apps over the last seven (7) plus years and this app is simply a superior product overall with side-by-side comparisons. That said, with the latest app software update, I am now unable to clear any of the many recent current searched weather locations. When I attempt to slide the location text to clear it, the app now crashes and closes up leaving me to start the weather app process all over again. This has become increasingly frustrating and leaving me considering going back to inferior yet more reliable Weather Bug or the original AccuWeather apps. I’ve removed and reinstalled this app with no success whatsoever when rebooted. I hope that this issue is fixed soon as the number of searched locations is well over twenty (20) and currently populating more every day. I’m sure that this cannot help the overall speed and performance of my less than two (2) years old iPad Pro and less than one (1) year old iPhone 8.
I really liked this app but.......
by Techick74 on 2019/09/06 13:30
I guess because I chose not to upgrade to premium I don’t get to see the weather at all. The last couple of times I’ve gone to the app all I get are dashes where information should be. My saved locations were gone so I entered them again to see if that would help, no. I refuse to put an app (that I can get the same information else where for free)on the payroll. I’m only willing to make a one time payment. Update..... The makers of this app contacted me after my first review assuring me that I would still receive basic weather information to keep me safe in the case of hazardous weather. I just went through a hurricane here in NC no thanks to this app. The entire time leading up to the storm all I got was a picture of the continents, I couldn't even zoom in on my location to see anything. I got the notification for a warning but because I couldn't open my location I didn’t know how to get to the warning. I probably wouldn't say anything now but this morning I got another notification for a weather warning. Why is it I can now get all the detail I could ever want about a storm that has already passed.
Worthless, unreliable. Don’t waste your time
by BrrKsu on 2019/06/21 20:28
This app was amazing a few years ago. Why is there always a need to take something great and “update” it to something that is trash. Every time I open the app, it shows me as somewhere in Africa (I’m in the Midwest USA). When I click the arrow to find my location, the app crashes and closes. Upon reopening the app, it shows my location and sometimes shows the current radar. It no longer shows weather alerts (highlighted counties with active weather watches and warnings), even with the “alerts” button selected, each time I open the app, I have to turn on storm tracks and lightning alerts because it doesn’t remember my preferences anymore. I’ve tried emailing Storm support, but get no response. Ever since “the weather channel” name was added to the app, it turned into trash. TWC is worthless in my opinion anyway. Bring back the old intellicast the way it was before TWC “fixed it”, or at least have your developers read the reviews and fix the bugs. I am away from home a lot of the time and rely on apps like this for weather alerts. It’s just too unreliable anymore. Fix it please
Way worse than the last version
by Thaddeusrex on 2018/10/01 15:12
What’s up with this?! Why did you launch a new app with a fraction of the functionality? I can’t find any of the old options I liked in the older version, like the wind arrows, which were actually amazingly accurate. Much worse. Revert back please. The loading is horrendous, especially the tropical storm/hurricane tracks, which are the most critical. It’s basically random as to whether storms will show up on my iPad screen or not. I open the app, then sit and stare at it for several minutes. Sometime none will load, so I zoom the view in and out, and sometimes that eventually works. Sometimes some storms will load, but not others. After all that, I still keep going back to the old version to view the wind arrows (which are my favorite feature, and are gone now), and going through the “OOPS, there’s an upgrade!” Screen, just so I can see where the arrows go into a tight circle, which indicates a hurricane. The arrows are so accurate, last year they predicted hurricanes before any service, or other data did! Bring back the arrows!
Sadly not what it used to be
by joshybigmac on 2019/08/17 20:07
I downloaded this app about 5 months ago and it was amazing to use. I used it almost every day and had some very useful and insightful information that I like to look at when viewing the weather and the radar. Recent updates have since stripped away all of the functionality that I used to enjoy in favor of a bogus $20 annual fee which wouldn’t be so bad if you weren’t additionally extorted by a completely useless app for those who don’t wish to pay. I know this company knows how to do premium — the main The Weather Channel app introduced a premium program a couple months back as well, but instead of forcing users to pay by excluding features they already used, new and exciting features were made available on top of the free experience if they so wished to use them. I don’t understand why the same company could find it so hard to just do the same thing across all their apps. I’ll be sure to telling the people whom I recommended this app to to uninstall it if they haven’t already made the good decision to use the storage this app occupies for something actually worth keeping.
layers once free, now a premium purchase! What happened?!!
by Eagles215 on 2019/07/18 01:40
many of the layers once free have been taken away and now are only available as a premium purchase. This also applies to some really basic layers you’d think would be free; such as satellite cloud cover and wind speed just to name a couple. This App was always somewhat buggy, but was still a must have for any weather geek. Now it’s just a simple weather app that cant stand apart from the pack after taking so much away once given as free and/or considered a basic feature and locking them behind a premium pay wall. I HIGHLY suggest looking elsewhere for a weather app. One that doesn’t drastically change their business model just to sell you something once given for free or considered to be an industry standard/basic weather feature. This is my first ever review left for an App if that tells you anything. I really hope this App comes back around and they resolve any internal differences, cause it really was once a great app. Not worth the price of admission today with the added concern of company’s unstable nature toward a business structure to build around.
Cluttered and counter intuitive
by Beernun on 2019/04/15 00:21
This app was great in its previous form. Now it’s an annoying mess. It’s got so much information in it, but the UI is horrible. It covers the map and only gives a tiny window to view. How many different ways to I have to turn off the animation of the Map? There are so many warning larders turned on that I can’t see THE MAP. I’ve turned them all off and there’s still several on that can’t be deactivated. The only good thing about this app is the lightning strike warnings. The previous incarnation of this app was still better at it though. When I’m trying to find the weather conditions I want to know now, not after if turned off a bunch of layers, then stopped the reader animation, and pressed the now button 3 times to get it to the current radar, then accidentally changed the location of the forecast by putting my finger on the side of the screen. This app has become a total mess. You can have all the information possible, but it’s useless because the UI is so bad that I do to want to use the app.
Paying for this app for the Third time!
by IroqAtty on 2019/08/13 00:55
So a few years ago I bought this app for a couple bucks, and it was a great companion to the weather channel app during stormy weather. It was a phenomenal app that I still miss in bad weather. After a couple years TWC discontinued that app and migrated to the *new* storm app. I paid a couple bucks (again) and got a app with reduced functionality, but it had weather boxes and lightning strikes. So I swallowed the loss and eventually sought out another app that had storm tracks and timing and some of the other functionality of the old app. Now Storm is insisting that I pay a few more bucks to continue doing the same thing I already paid for it to do, lightning and severe boxes, and that it was already doing just a few weeks ago. So now do I invest a few more bucks in an app that has now proven itself unreliable? Especially after I had to pay for a competitor app to fill the gaps left by the last migration? Perhaps I’ll delete Storm for the time being, and see if I miss it next time there’s a storm, the way I miss the original app.
The only good thing about this app is watching it crash and burn.
by Grrrrrr4411 on 2019/07/20 21:44
Ok. I’ve hated this app from day one. It was a huge step back from WU. But watching the developers dig themselves into a deeper hole? It’s getting to be entertaining at least! I found new apps after a dangerous situation that Storm showed nothing and we had hail and tornados. I contacted the developers and got the canned responses of thank you for your feedback. There was a glimmer of hope when they added storm tracks again several months ago. It still sucked. But slightly better. And now we have to pay for it for premium in a subscription model? I deleted it today as these bad storms are moving through and I can’t get any info on them. How is it that the weather channel app is this horrible? I’m so disappointed they bought out WU and ruined it. If you want a basic radar that’s horribly inaccurate- there are a ton of free apps that will give you that. Weathermate, Aeries Pulse and Accuweather are my go to-s now if anyone is looking for help. None of the three give me everything I want but together have what WU used to.
Has become useless since TWC/IBM took over
by cobaltjump on 2019/08/16 21:25
App has slid downhill for ages now. Really, how does an app manage to get WORSE? I had been a paid subscriber $0.99 month for years to get the AD free experience. Started having issues with radar images not loading requiring an app restart. Then it started serving me ads even though I was paying to remove them. Numerous emails and support requests sent over 2 months with no response. Finally canceled subscription last month and was going to give them one more shot with re-subscription at the .99 rate when it officially expired a day from now with hopes it would reset my subscription token or whatever. Now I see they want 3.99 a MONTH to remove ads and see basic weather data other apps offer for free. No way I am taking that chance with no previous response to support requests. Putting 75% of a weather app behind a pay wall....hilarious. I am preparing to free up some storage space by removing this app. “Weather Mate” as mentioned by another reviewer has some amazing features and customization for free.
Remember when...?
by Tardy_Slip on 2019/08/23 03:29
Remember when this application used to be hands down the best detailed weather tracking application one could have a smart phone? Remember when you could track an individual storm’s direction, wind velocity, cloud Atlas, windshear, and other detailed information so as to predict the storms severity relative to your specific location? And, Remember when it was completely free? I don’t mean this basic unintelligible version that exists now,... that you’re forced to get whenever you buy a new phone, or because they shut down support for the previous version. And to the developers… Don’t patronize us with the fact that you charge a subscription to provide a more intuitive ad free experience. We had that already that (ad banners were minuscule at most) and you decided since you bought the rights you could take that away from us. I realize that legally yet immorally, you can. But you didn’t even make the app better, you made it completely and appallingly worse. We prefer the original app. Give it back!
SO Disappointing
by Mummal66 on 2019/08/03 13:02
Like all of the other reviews state this app is subpar at best. Doesn’t even deserve one star. I miss, miss, miss the old Intellicast app! The “upgrade” to storm has just steadily gone downhill and now I have to PAY for features that have always been standard features. Additionally 50% of the time when I open my app it is showing the continent of Africa on my screen. I have learned that the app is not functioning at this point because if I touch on the screen the app crashes. Also most of the time when I open the app there is no radar showing. I have to widen my view and then the radar will pop onto the screen. Plus the satellite view is terrible! If there are clouds showing I can’t see them! Only if I widen my view can I see them very faintly. Have tried adjusting the opacity which does nothing. Of course like others I could go on and on. And the few Developer responses on here are BS! It’s 100% about profit. They know how popular this app has been for years and are trying to capitalize on that. Don’t waste your time people!
Not the original Storm
by Tanzerbet on 2019/08/06 16:47
Used the original Storm for years and really liked it, particularly the layout and detail panels. It was my go-to source for weather info. Switched to this when prompted by the developers and found it to be less informative with features such as boating weather removed. New version is clunky, slow, less intuitive, less detailed, and the dreadful ads are awful. Can't wait for the next severe weather to creep up so that I can wait on an ad to load before I can see a storm track. I actually get frustrated with app now and look for weather information elsewhere. Update: So here I am watching a strong cell with heavy lightning move toward me at the coast and I can't see a storm track or get the animation to work on iPhone. Thought I'd give the app some more time to prove itself but now share the sentiments of another reviewer...that depending on this app can be dangerous, even fatal. At least the notifications work so I know to tune into another weather map. Please give us back the original Storm!
Old app was better
by sterlingwynn on 2019/02/06 15:20
Update: After reading all the bogus 5 star reviews, I downgraded my review. Compared to the old app, this is almost a zero. The current weather for my location is usually off, weather channel always uses an airport that is 25 miles away across a reservoir for data, then applies it to the town 12 miles away from me, and gives me the same data as both of those. Weather underground used to have data that more closely matched the readings we were receiving on site. The nearby highway weather station on 511 is much better at current conditions. Previous: The weather alerts are meaningless in this app. Instead of real time and real details, an alert will state something like “four minutes ago”; it stays that way even if it has been hours. The old app used to state a time and a quantity or value, such as inches of precipitation, mph of wind, and so on. Also, the notifications don’t show up in the app, only in your Notification Center.
You finally ruined it
by JRedPark on 2019/08/20 00:19
At one time Storm was the best. When the Weather Channel acquired it the “improvements” made it much harder to use and also made it ugly. Although unhappy with it, I have continued to use it. I even paid yearly to remove the adds, I supported it because it was the best. After it was redone to the terrible interface, all memberships were voided and you couldn’t pay to remove adds. Annoying, but eventually they brought being able to remove adds for a monthly fee, so I did again. I have paid now to have adds removed for years... but the last 6 months or so even though I paid every month, the app constantly displayed adds. I begrudgingly still used it because it still had the best data even though a stupid and cumbersome interface. This new change in the last two weeks making you pay an exorbitant amount the the data thats been free for YEARS is finally too far and too greedy. I have PAID for YEARS. I am done with you guys. You have finally ruined it. Great job.
Has declined since intellicast...
by KAny04 on 2018/09/18 21:39
As both a pilot and a weather enthusiast I started out with intellicast. The original storm upgrade was decent but this most recent Storm Radar can easily be considered a downgrade from its predecessor. I am in agreement with many of the other reviews stating that the original app could have just been improved upon. Much of the information that had set this program apart from every other app has been removed. The removal of frontal information, pressure systems, and wind overlays (just to start) hinder the apps capability of being considered an advanced meteorological tool and more so places it in the category with every other weather app. The only difference is that it’s slightly less user friendly but with less to offer in exchange for its complexity. What used to be a very capable program for years is now heavily at risk of becoming easily replaced by a couple of the other apps that also offer detailed meteorological information. As a fan I hope they do better. Also, the canned responses don’t help. Update: Will be deleting due to the forced update with diminished performance. There are better radar/meteorology apps out there. 2nd Update: Notice this score is now below 3.0. There is a reason for this. The old app was easily greater than 4.0 consistently. Final Update: This app was at a 2.5. Then they deleted all of the negative ratings from disappointed users. Now it’s back at a 4.3, yet somehow, the exact same app. Interesting.
All aboard the Paywall Train!
by Kitsune-242 on 2019/08/13 02:55
I used to love this app. Honestly. Used it at least once a day, multiple times if there was a big storm in the area. But this recent update? Added on a new “premium” version that has hidden a number of previously-free features behind a paywall. Want to track a storm’s projected path? Fork over the cash. Want to check to see if/where a tornado was reported in that storm cell that’s right over your house? Better pay up. It’d be different if these were new features. But they’re not. They’re the features that made me an avid fan of this app in the first place. They’re what made me recommend this app to anybody that lives in an area with unpredictable weather. These features were what set this app apart from the rest. But now they’ve been shuffled behind a paywall that seems like nothing but a cash grab, creating a base app that pales in comparison to what it used to be. I expect more features will be stuck behind the paywall soon enough. Time to start looking for a new weather app.
Terrible when compared to Org STORM APP
by Bob Griffith III on 2019/01/13 20:07
Having been in Aviation meteorological weather forecasting since 1969, I can say beyond any argument whatsoever this replacement app to the original “Storm app” is absolutely terrible! It’s hard to navigate, it’s screen is anything but pleasant to look at, it navigates very slowly, it does not give nearly the same amount of weather reporting stations, and so on and so on and so on! I just cannot fathom why they (weather channel group) would have taken The original Storm app and could have ever thought it’s replacement they have was equal to or better to the Original Storm app. I wish there ego was such that they would realize this and go back to the original Storm app in it’s entirety. In other words, what they have now is just terrible at very best. I truly miss the original Storm app and on a professional level it would serve them much better by bringing it back. I simply cannot express that enough! Please, please, please bring the original Storm app back on line!
Some good, some not as good
by ciriousclouds on 2018/09/23 03:23
Compared to the old app before it became the new “Storm” there is only one thing I like better, and that even comes with a “but it doesn’t” caveat. I like that it is faster to pinpoint a specific location anywhere across the country by tapping instead of having to write in a place name. But, I liked the way you could save your frequently used places and go directly to them. I liked the ease of getting the customized overlays better in the old app. I still haven’t found out how to see jet stream patterns or surface wind speed patterns. I also think the forecasted radar view seems to be using a model which must say “always predict more rain in 12 hours”. I’d like to see a long range forecast, (even though I never trust them as being more accurate than what I used to do with the radar images, but now I don’t even trust the radar forecast)
Irrelevant Weather Warning
by Ann Marie_13 on 2019/05/24 03:38
I’ve never liked this app all that much, but I didn’t really feel much need to find a new one until now. In addition to the slow/glitchy radar, I just received a tornado warning that wasn’t actually relevant to me, which caused undue stress. The alert said for my entire county, but it was actually only relevant to the opposite part of the county from where I live, and I don’t have that part of the county listed as a favorite either. FIX THIS ASAP and only deliver tornado warnings to those currently in the specific warning area or those who have a town in the specific warning area as a “favorite”. You’re only causing undue stress when you send a warning like that out to people it’s not relevant to. Plus people will be less likely to take your future warnings seriously if the warnings they receive now are irrelevant. Very irresponsible and I would have expected better. I will be looking for a new app that is more useful in general and more precise with the tornado warnings.
Not worth the memory
by g33q on 2018/11/08 11:19
Storm Radar isn’t the worst weather app but it’s also far from the best... the only reason I haven’t deleted it yet is that it has potential and I keep hoping they will upgrade the features to match their claims. The biggest blunder they have is there is no way of setting minimums of what is considered a storm so basically if a storm watcher reports anything happening within 300 miles it shows as a storm even though the storm track is nowhere near the users location and is unwanted information. This means is anyone reporting reports a brief sprinkle it’s considered a storm and it pops up the same as if there was a imminent flood situation. The other problem that needs immediate attention is it is not intuitive as to how to set it up. There ought to be a how-to manual manual built in at least until they figure how to make it general public friendly...
Wow, this app is something else...
by tribblepuppy on 2019/05/16 19:19
... well, it would be something else if it actually worked on my iPhone 6s. I have thrown away and re-downloaded this app many times now, and it still continues to freeze up. It’s very frustrating that if I try to perform any function such as enlarge or reduction the screen, change locations, or turn on or off the animation, it’s like the app needs to think about whether it wants to reply or not. Sometimes deleting the app is my only option, but even that doesn’t help. I sure wish you had done more beta testing before making us throw away an app that actually worked pretty well. I wish the old app was still available, I would gladly pay to use it. And as an aside, could you make the lightening indicators easier to see? It’s hard to see them when there are many other colors on the screen. Maybe a black outline on the lightening would help?
Poor and unnecessary replacement
by April girl on 2019/01/07 10:19
Storm was a beautiful and elegant weather app. This is a hot mess. Where do I begin? With Storm, I could easily move among my saved locations, as opposed to this "improvement" that has me tapping all over the place trying to get back to the location I want. Storm had easy-to-read tiles that gave as much or as little info as one wanted, including a tile with alert information and graphics that showed what the alert was for. Then there's the super useful lightning radar. It even had a handy dandy thermometer graphic that showed the historic, current, and record highs and lows, a feature, hard as I've tried, I cannot find on any other weather app. PLEASE, PLEASE being back the old Storm. Until then, I'll be scrolling through the four other weather apps I have along with a bookmarked almanac for historical data. This app is not worth the space on my phone. Consider putting effort into fixing the app instead of writing all those fake 5-star reviews.
Ruined a great App
by unhappy05192018! on 2019/07/17 02:00
When this was weather underground there was much better data. You could see weather fronts storm tracks as well as many other great data points. Once the weather channel took over they took away most of this functionality. I submitted many requests to bring back the features from the original app. Recently they have taken another step backwards and now they charge for basic functionality like viewing satellite. Don’t waste your time with this as the standard weather channel app provides more and better data free. If you want extra data points look at the Accuweather app. The main reason I have removed this app is because the old weather underground app still allows for the ability to see fronts and satellite. Storm tracking was nice and I would not be opposed to paying for it, but it is disappointing that all of the features that once made the app excellent are removed or now you have to pay for them.
Problems have cropped up with the latest version.
by eclectichead on 2019/07/21 12:04
The latest version of this app has created problems and emails to support have gone unanswered. First, I purchased an annual plan to add the premium features such as add free and more sophisticated radar features, but the app will not enable those features despite my verifying the subscription and even uninstalling and reinstalling the app. Second, the hourly display does not work properly. It gives a blank screen initially, but upon scrolling to the left, you do get a display of hourly conditions, but this is devoid of any info as to which day is being displayed. Finally I find it disappointing that there is no option to display so-called “real-feel” in any aspect of this app. If these components were to be fixed I would give five stars to the app, since the rest of the app gives a great display.
Extremely unhappy. Bring back the original storm app.
by Kuzanut on 2019/08/21 19:48
The Storm radar app was supposed to be the best thing since sliced bread. Honestly after almost 2 years I can say I am extremely disappointed. Time and time again I find that the radar glitches. This afternoon. There is a storm front approaching. If you hit play on the radar it show us about 60 miles away. Then it disappears and about an hour into the future the front reappears. This has happend more and more often. I loved the original storm app. I understand that it’s no longer supported but as a business that does weather. That puts out an app called Storm Radar. One would think the app would work. I live in northern NJ. We have 3 radar stations that cover this area. So it’s not like there is a lack of data. What is the problem with the app? Please someone contact me and talk to me. I need an app like this for my business but continually find this one less and less reliable. Thanks
Needs some tweaks to match the original storm app
by J.A.Moore on 2019/07/11 00:44
Update July 10, 2019 New version now requires a paid subscription to see weather alerts on the map. They did not work for me in the previous version so not going to pay and not know if they work now - maybe they do? I would think having the basic weather alert location on the map would be a base feature. Time to look for a new app or just use the NOAA web site - which is the source of most all weather info. Latest version does not seem to show the alert areas on map. Alerts are listed when you happen to select a location, but you cannot see what area is covered. I have toggled all the options and even reinstalled the app. There is also some lag when should the radar data. This might be network related as sometimes it does seem to work. Other time I have to zoom in or out for it to trigger a fetch of the data. Previous review: Most of the features seem to be here that were in the older Storm app - which was my go-to weather app. Some things are missing but maybe I just cannot find them: Personal weather stations - on map and get details - i have my own station on weather Underground and would like to see what the weather is at home. Cloud cover % in the future chart - used to be with precipitation % - I used this to know if it was going to be a good night for star watching
What were you guys thinking?!!?
by Marshal law69 on 2019/07/20 05:25
WOW! I truly didn’t want to see one of my favorite, and otherwise; extremely useful, usable, and all-round great, info-packed weather apps, get “gutted” like so much road-side carrion, picked clean of virtually all good content and information, the user might actually find beneficial in the first place! Then, if THAT insult to the apps’ original creators was not insulting enough, you’ve finally decided, “NOW is the time to add insult to injury, and charge the users a PREMIUM for the privilege, while simultaneously providing FAR LESS USABLE INFORMATION than what they had in the first place!” (MINUS THE COST...MINUS THE INSULT TO CONSUMER INTELLIGENCE.) Well, hopefully, one day, some decent- genuinely, ethically motivated developer, decides to take on all of these money-hungry, fiscally myopic corporatists- reminding them that neither: are ALL consumers, total idiots, nor are they equally entitled to “far less, while charging them a premium”. Thanks for the great app W.U. while it lasted.
Nowhere near as good as its predecessor
by iPhannahPi on 2018/12/22 17:04
UPDATE 2: Why don’t these people get it? After a year plus of terrible reviews, they STILL don’t understand. Evidently the pointy-hair boss in Dilbert is running the ship. This app is crap! UPDATE: And the latest update wants you to pay $0.99 per month for an ad-free experience??? They must be joking or out of their minds. Why do they think people will pay to suffer through a lousy app experience with limited functionality just because it doesn't have annoying pop-up ads any more? It is an INFERIOR app and will still be inferior without ads. The no-longer-supported Storm app was WAY better. No surface winds or jet stream flows in this one. No maps showing front locations and types. This is NOT an improvement! Your responses say you will be working to make this the best radar app. How 'bout aspiring to make it the best all-around WEATHER app like the old Storm was. And hurry! Seems like you will be losing customers fast if you don't.
Great app! Until greed set in...
by shelasgoodfello on 2019/08/04 13:00
I like this app. When Wunderground took over Intellicast and took away many of the maps and features that I liked, my brother introduced me to this app. It’s features were similar to those I was used to and it was easy to learn. However, apparently three weeks ago there was an update to this app that made all of the features that I liked about this app part of a “Premium” package. I don’t mind paying for what I use. That’s fair. I do however expect to pay a fair market price for what I use. I wish the developers of this app had followed Apple’s example. What Apple charges for cloud storage is reasonable. What they are charging for the “Premium” package is excessive for its purpose and use. Very disappointing. 😳😔 Also, the charge for “Premium “ is not mentioned in the App Store description. Please update that as well.
I give up
by nfahlgren on 2018/11/26 00:33
I loved the Weather Underground Storm app. It was definitely an advanced app that did more than just present the user with forecasts. This app was meant to replace Storm, and maybe the developers had different goals for this app than the last, but it’s definitely not a replacement for Storm. I have tried to use Storm Radar as my main weather app for the last 6 months or so as it’s okay (I would give it 3 stars but they lose one more for throwing away an already good product) and I figured it would gain features over time to regain things lost in the conversion. That hasn’t really happened though. It’s just stayed the same stripped down version of Storm that it always was. So I’m done waiting for regaining features we lost in the transition and I’m moving on to another app and deleting this one. I’m giving Aeris Pulse Weather a shot if that helps anyone else looking for a Storm replacement.
Wow. Premium didn’t Add layers it just took them away
by My-thoughts-as-stars on 2019/07/17 00:04
All the new premium layers are supposed to be so flashy and impressive except for the part where most of them were previously included and just free!!! Of Course GEOS-16 is premium but Why the hell would ADVISORIES be anything but free??? Also in rural as F#%& nowhere the “local storm reports” layer in this app was about the only way I could find out if there would be down trees or flooding on the roads when I drive to work before sunrise (most places don’t just have access to 911 call center reports) I’m a broke student driving 45 minutes each way to work for free in a hospital. It sure would be nice if I could access the information about what roads will get me there safely! And even though I’m no where near California it still feels like bad taste to put Earthquake information behind a paywall right now!!!! Really disappointed in the weather channel today. Really.
Summary: annoying
by Vilago on 2018/09/26 03:36
Not sure why they needed to change to a different storm app. All the reviews here indicate a step backward with this release yet they continue to ignore the comments. The old one had a better layout and could see daily, hourly and current temp and weather at a glance as a small banner at the bottom, with radar front and center how I like it. Now there’s an obtrusive banner at the top middle which only shows current conditions and also partially obscures the map and you have to move it out of the way. Only able to see hourly if I press the banner then scroll. annoying! Have to close the banner to see the radar which I don’t like. If you click anywhere on the map it changes your location which isnt intuitive and you can’t switch between saved locations. Please just keep the old version alive and don’t kill it at the end of the month! or at least allow you to switch to the old view layout...
Great app gone bad
by CAE55 on 2019/08/29 11:39
Ever since they “updated” this app it hasn’t worked right. It continually crashes and can sometimes take several restarts to get it working. When the app does start, not all of the features often load. I had actually purchased the premium version when it came out to have all the features, but most of those don’t work and also cause crashes when I try to use them. This problem is occurring on all of my devices and my wife also has problems with her devices. All of my devices are up to date and I have tried contacting support a couple of times, but I have gotten no response. By the way, this isn’t just me. I have asked a couple of fiends, to whom I originally recommended, about whether it works for them. Each of them have gone to other apps out of frustration. I think it’s time to give up and look for another app. It’s too bad since this used to be the best weather app out there.
Extremely Disappointing
by zmqpal102938 on 2019/07/30 22:37
Recent upgrades, post Intellicast, have been rather disappointing. At first, the change over to Storm had some excellent features that were improvements over Intellicast. Then came Storm Radar...In the beginning, I was having issues with it crashing almost every time I opened it. Now, when i open it, it opens a map of the continent of Africa. Then, when I choose my location, there is no information available, not even in the drop down. I have to close the APP and then reopen it in order to view conditions at my location. Also, there are now permanent icons on the screen which are totally useless. They just take up space on the screen. Also, I can’t even look at the previous 2 hours of HD Radar, or any of the many other features that were available at no cost. I am so disappointed that The Weather Channel has come to this point. I am ready to find another provider of weather data.
So very disappointed.

I used an earlier version of this app, and was very happy with it. It was my go-to when bad weather came up. Then, my beloved app was thrown away in favor of this pale imitation. It uses the Weather Channel’s radar map (I’ve got that app already, thanks.), which is not as up to date in real time (when you live in tornado-prone areas IT MATTERS). The storm tracks feature was one of my favorite things about the old app, but have been buggy at best in this version. I had to turn them on every time I loaded the app, and then they wouldn’t show the directional cone unless I zoomed in on it. Now, to top it all off, they have taken away all the severe weather features (including storm tracks) from the free version and are expecting me to pay a MONTHLY fee to get them back. If it were a one time app purchase I would have considered it, but based on previous performance I’m not committing to a monthly payment. Don’t waste your money!
Original Storm app was far better

Edit: now the app is super broken. Keeps crashing and if it doesn’t crash it freezes up. Can’t save any type of multi layer radar in custom mode. It’s horrible! Edit: What update? You haven’t listened to us at all. Ad free, who cares. Bring back the original Storm app. You guys shut down the servers for the Storm app that I used for several years and made us download and use this app instead. This app doesn’t even compare to the quality from the other app. The map is lacking so much with layers and data! ie high/low fronts and severe weather outlooks. Its impossible to look around the map also with out touching and changing location and then have to jump all the way back by touching the arrow icon. Wish you guys guys would bring back the Storm app or just brought all that over to this new Storm radar app or something. I am very displeased and disappointed!! Please add new features!
⛔️ This is NOT the app you're looking for

I have used this app for years after it became the forced replacement for Storm, a perfectly fine weather app by this developer. It offered excellent features and accurate predictions for free so long as you were willing to tolerate the ads. With the recent “update,” however, all of that has changed. Many of the features have been removed from the app dumbing it down and predictions seem less accurate. The ads of course remain and there is no visible improvement in functionality. What is clear is that the developers have decided to remove functionality from the app and hold previous features hostage in order to extort a sizable subscription fee from long-standing users. Like many other disappointed reviewers, I will look elsewhere for a new weather app.💔 MY NO CHARGE UPDATE: I have found several free alternative weather apps with many of the features removed from this version: Windy Wunderground Accuweather I have settled on my local TV station's app which is much like the original Storm app. I like getting the lightning and storm alerts, storm tracks and even access to nearby webcams because it can literally be raining on one side of the street and not the other. Look around and I am positive you will find a better app than this hobbled version of a formerly great app.
Broken - inferior to old Storm, crashes ever use

And now we get to ADS + PREMIUM UNLOCKING layers. What a load ... “weather mate pro” is now my primary weather app, I rather pay a small dev team and give feedback for improvements than wasting my time and money with TWC and STORM issues. STORM ... it is 2019 ... over one year from the original boondoggle and usability is still NOT fixed!! The old storm was faster and more practical than this new Storm Radar, because upon opening old Storm had that all the essential data I want loaded on the home screen ... with Storm Radar you wait for the spinning animations to come in and still don’t have the data for the rest of the day ... nor the whole week, without extra tapping and scrolling. Had paid for ad-free, so lost that. Radar seems off, coloring wise overstating intensity ... still crashes every day ... loading radar data seems fixed now ... but the app is INFERIOR to the old STORM.
