Really like the storm tracker, but had to turn cellular data off for the app after it ran up 339 MB bill.
Gives hourly dew point estimates
by Mousebennett on 2019/07/17 01:37
Any kind accurate weather forecasting is difficult. But they seem to give it their best. I love the hourly forecasts which include dew points. High dew points seem to negatively impact the feel of warmer weather, so I like to have an educated guess. It helps planning the week in very uncomfortable and hot weather.

It’s completely fast
What happened?
by swathergirl on 2019/07/16 22:32
I have been using weather bug for years. It was spot on (especially the lightening strikes)and a great app. But anymore it is slow , doesn’t load at all , or is off in the forecasting and radar image.
From great to horrible in 2 days
by bluevenn on 2019/07/16 22:23
What happened? Your reliability ran off a cliff. You say it’s thunder and lightning but it’s sunshine for miles here. Temperatures between the NOW and HOURLY screens vary by 20 degrees. 2 days ago I gave you a 5 star rating. Today you’re barely 1 star at best. Hope an update comes soon or I’m switching.
My sister was right!
by Eli8814 on 2019/07/16 21:00
She said WeatherBug is super accurate and she’s right! Very good up to date weather info!
No alerts *update**
by Genetic Amoeba on 2019/07/16 20:17
*update* I had to uninstall And reinstall 2 times to allow alerts. All is well Thank you. Current iOS user. No alerts with this app. Very disappointed
Great App
by roof geek on 2019/07/16 20:16
Very helpful in the roofing industry. Depending on reception the app has provided much needed info in a timely manner.
Too many ads, too little weather!
by Yabbadabba2 on 2019/07/16 19:06
The latest update wiped out almost all the weather info in the Now and 10-day sections and replaced it with a massive number of ads. This app is now next to useless. Fortunately they’re not the only weather app out there. Bye Weatherbug!
Great app
by Laiuka926 on 2019/07/16 18:13
Very accurate considering that it showing predicted weather. There are so many great features to this app including hourly/daily/weekly predictions, spark, photos, UV info, allergen info, etc, not to mention that you can change and store other cities you are interested in keeping current with. Just an amazing amount of information easily at your fingertips.
Accurate
by nhcaligirl on 2019/07/16 18:03
Much more accurate than our local news station I don’t even listen to them anymore I always check weatherbug.
Good balance of info
by InternalCombustion on 2019/07/16 17:26
Decent radar, good amount of detail. My go-to weather app
Cool!
by jacobcantu on 2019/07/16 13:55
This is one of my favorite weather apps!
Wonderful app
by Bffforever on 2019/07/16 13:02
This a great app. We use it everyday and it especially useful when traveling.
Wind accuracy
by Volplyr on 2019/07/16 11:32
I rely on weather bugs accuracy all around for my job and for everyday as well. Although it is usually quite accurate, the wind accuracy is probably the most unreliable data on this app. And with my job I really need to know what the wind speeds and direction it’s coming. I have been relying on other apps that are more accurate. So with that I can only give a 3 out of 5 stars. Hopefully this changes in the future.
Most Reliable
by Rome e. Rome on 2019/07/16 11:26
I’ve used this program since 2000 before there were apps and the app it’s self is easy to navigate and very reliable. Plus i enjoy the little details like pollen and humidity.
Love it!
by Mrs Bubbles 2 u on 2019/07/16 02:24
I have had this app for years
I can’t even get into the app
by E.lintt27 on 2019/07/16 01:51
I’m at the screen that has the ‘I Agree’ button, but it won’t let me click on it. I’ve been through the Terms of Agreement and Privacy Policy many times and it still won’t work.
Never right.
by UFCGaitor on 2019/07/16 01:29
This app never seems to get it right. It feels like it’s literally guessing. I’ve had it for about 2 years and I’ve finally given up on it.
Better than most
by Rockn78 on 2019/07/16 00:51
Accurate forecasts when on the hourly page. The daily page is disappointing because it shows rain but when switching to the hourly page, the rain is minimal.
Love it
by rebelangelofdarkness on 2019/07/15 23:07
Keep me ahead of the storm
Use to be good
by Hkl87 on 2019/07/15 22:38
This has been my favorite app for years and the past few months it’s been horrible. It takes forever to load anything. I’m seriously considering downloading a new app. Please fix these issues!
Love it!

Why am I seeing pictures of naked women in this app?
by cardaf on 2019/07/15 21:21
I use this app all the time. I like how easy it is to bring up the radar. However in the ads I have started to see pictures that I don’t feel are appropriate. I’m wondering why?
Terrific app!
by orchman on 2019/07/15 21:18
We spend a lot of time in our motorhome and depend on this app to keep us safe and give us time to react to upcoming weather so we can move or decide to stay where we are. Easy to use and I haven’t had any problems with it at all!
Works great!
by American Dad on 2019/07/15 19:16
I have no complaints with this app as I have used it for many years without any major issue. Sue it has times when it seems that the app isn’t working like it should but usually it’s because of the internet or cell service being the weak link. Oh by the way, I know weather “prediction” is just that, a prediction. It isn’t an exact science so eep up the good work
One of the best and most popular for Weather apps
by The Forever iPhone man on 2019/07/15 19:09
This app usually always flawlessly only a few little glitches here and there. I’d say one of the best apps and it has one of the best interfaces and graphics of any weather app and the app team do a good job keeping it up-to-date!
5 Stars
by epec on 2019/07/15 18:30
Use it all the time. More accurate then others!
Great localized weather, temps and alerts
by Vince_1970 on 2019/07/15 17:43
WeatherBug has a lot of local stations to choose. I get more accurate data from this app than the one that comes with the phone. It’s my go to WX app.
Love the alerts
by Cranny05 on 2019/07/15 17:05
I used to only use the Weather Channel app, but I switched when I discovered Weather Bug. I love the alerts during severe weather.
Accurate and dependable
by Farm boy 1 on 2019/07/15 14:39
Best weather app I have used yet!
The Best
by SlideRule2 on 2019/07/15 14:36
It is by far the best, and I have purchased and used nearly all of the most recommended. It is attractive, accurate, easily used, contains all the useful information, and alerts you to all needed info, and finally supplies wonderful pictures.
Great App!
by JNL79 on 2019/07/15 13:54
This is a great app! I really enjoy all the features and how up to date it is as soon as I check it.
My favorite weather app!
by Matt-R-Fact on 2019/07/15 13:00
Weather Bug is my go-to weather app! I especially love the lightning tracker feature. It’s very useful on summer pool days!
Ads! Ads! And more ads!
by Coffee every morning on 2019/07/15 11:55
Seriously the ads are out of control, they even pop up and block buttons. It’s freaking stupid. Get your crap together man!
Weather bug
by 43-900 on 2019/07/15 10:49
Works good for me
Just wrong
by Hjglover on 2019/07/15 10:28
This app is always wrong. It says it’s raining when it’s dry and dusty, it says 0% chance of rain when it’s raining. For weeks it’s been showing “increased storm chance for the next 3 hours” warnings, constantly. App displays 40% chance of rain on the daily forecast for 2-3 days, but the hourly shows 0% for every hour for every available day. This app is absolutely useless for weather or making plans around the weather. You’d be better off just going outside and looking around.
Awesome
by brianshotheather on 2019/07/15 05:24
It works and it’s accurate. I like it.

Easy to use

Great app even for this Senior Citizen. Often for my age group instructions are unclear but not Weather Bug. Easy easy to use and very accurate. What’s there not to like!!!
Love WeatherBug
by Obbie Juan Kenobie on 2019/07/14 22:47
Best free weather app available!
Not even close anymore
by deehumter72 on 2019/07/14 22:23
Used to be spot on, now it may be pouring rain and weatherbug says sunny. Used to be highly accurate, now maybe right 1 day out of 10!!! Not sure where your info is coming from but might rethink who you are getting it from, i can do a better job looking outside and knowing when rain or a storm is coming in!!!
Just look at the map
by Dflachjr on 2019/07/14 20:55
Regularly the hourly predictions are incorrect. The maps seem to be pretty accurate though, so I look at the map in motion and take a guess based on the motion. My way may not be perfect but it is better than the hourly predictions.
Great App
by Fightlikagirl on 2019/07/14 20:02
I love this App! Always get up to date weather information.
My only weather app.
by JanBob654 on 2019/07/14 14:38
A great weather app, better, IMHO than the weather channel app. They continue to update it, plus fix any bugs that pop up.
Cool

0.0 miles away seek shelter now
by kittycat901 on 2019/07/14 11:43
Love this app. I hate lightening. Love the maps showing you where the lightening is. Even told me 0.0 miles away seek shelter now. Yes the lightening was in my yard just feet from my house. Thanks weatherbug.
Load and show!!
by Memeballew on 2019/07/14 11:43
Ours loads fast if there is no cloud cover. I’ve used other radars and this one shows our place way out in the boonies better than the others. I’d really like to know the time lapse of how far behind the weather radar is from the approaching storms. And if there is any way to improve service during a storm. Thanks for all you do!
Weather bug
by JudyUlch on 2019/07/14 02:30
I check weather bug many times a day. It’s the best weather report that I can find.

Improving
by LadyRSR on 2019/07/14 01:58
This App has improved since I last rated it. It goes smother and does not take as long to download information. I’m happy with it now as the info it provides is really useful on the daily basis. Thank you
When you work outside
by Lobsterman 12345678 on 2019/07/14 01:48
When you work outside up-to-date weather forecast is a must. This is my go to app. Thanks

So easy to use
by turrie2 on 2019/07/13 22:00
I actually have several weather apps but this is my go to. Ease of use is big for me . Has never let me down.
Excellent weather app
by OMMmm61 on 2019/07/13 20:46
format is simple, and easy to use. Very accurate. I especially like the hourly breakdown of temperature, and dew point, which, in the summer, gives me a much better production of how hot and humid it’s going to be. Much better than humidity data. radar is great, accurate, quick, and easy to use. Best weather app I have ever used. Star doesn’t seem to work, I’d give it a five out of five.
You don't know what your talking about
by Scmoody1 on 2019/07/13 19:32
I drive for a living and look at this app every day,I like to know what's in front of me before I start my day,I've had WeatherBug for about 10 years now and it's never let me down.so piss off you guys that think it's a bad app you must be a d I'm going to live it at that
Best weather app ever!

Works good
by California cool on 2019/07/13 14:42
I’ve used weatherBug for nearly a year. It works good every time. Whenever traveling it keeps up with current location. I pare it with another more interactive radar and we’re golden. The recommendation to me came from a couple who live and travel full time in their huge van.
The Only Bug I Luv..
by Curiosityscat on 2019/07/13 13:36
I Luv my Weather Bug App! It keeps me informed of the Weather in my Favorite Cities Worldwide, literally, from Louisiana, USA to multiple Cities in various US States (Miami/FL, Hubbard/OH, Richmond/VA, etc), and even Countries like Italy (just out of curiosity). I highly recommend that You Customize Your view, which I feel makes the experience a LOT better! Simply rearrange the various options, like: Local Live Weather Cameras, Pollen+Ozone Level Monitoring, ans even things like Local Lightening Strike Monitoring. Plus, it gives GREAT LIVE-TIME WEATHER WARNINGS, like Flash Flood Warnings, Severe Storm Warnings, Etc. I really do use & couldn’t live as Worry Free and Comfortably without my Little Weather Bug sitting on my Home Screen, where I can just Pop On & Check the Weather..I tried a TON of other Weather Apps, including the NOAA, Weather Underground, Accuweather, and others, and I still really like Weather Bug for my Weather updates, and when You live somewhere like Louisiana with Tropical Storms and a Hurricane Season, constant High and even Dangerous Humidity Levels, Rain for Weeks at a time, and Flash Flooding, plus all of the other sometimes volatile weather conditions, staying up on the latest weather conditions from one Hour to one Day, much less a Week in advance is Critical, not an option. And, I’ve found Weather Bug’s weather predictions to be A LOT more ACCURATE than even our Nightly News Weather People (+the same goes for in other Cities, as I’ve had conversations with Friends living elsewhere about their local weather, versus what their Weather Reporters were predicting, and Weather Bug has had them beaten on accuracy Hands Down over and over again!!) From Snow to Rain to Sunshine, Weather Bug somehow gets it RIGHT more often than anyone else I’ve used as a Weather source, so GREAT JOB on that Weather Bug! Plus, if I need to know “Right Now” what weather is like elsewhere, I can always just Pop onto Weather Bug and check a local Live Time Weather Cam! Which I think is neat, because we all know that sometimes it can be Sunny and Warm one place and 10 or 20 miles away it can be Pouring down raining a deluge! But, looking at a Live Time Local Camera shows Right Then, Right There and there is no getting the weather “wrong”. Locally for me, Weather Bug’s Live Time Local Weather Cams are hooked into (show on Weather Bug) our Local State’s Highway Monitoring Cameras, so I can even check what the Weather is like just up the road at various Highways and Highway Entrance/Exits that I routinely Travel, Plus, I also get the added benefit of Traffic conditions. So, that’s my lengthly and overly Gushing with Gratitude Review and Opinion of my Weather Bug App. If You use the Weather Bug for a while Yourself, I think You’ll be just as hooked on, and convinced of it’s practical use, and need in Your own life, as I am!
Great app, maps slow
by Jump48fun on 2019/07/13 12:02
This app has a lot of great data and loads multiple cities as favorites. The GPS location works really well when you don’t want to learn the cities outside of your area. My only gripe is how slow radar maps load and sometimes don’t even show up.
All You Need
by UFOCOP on 2019/07/13 06:47
I’ve used every weather app out. None are worth the time to download. The Bug is all I ever need. Do yourself a favor and get the Bug.
Paying for no ads is good, subscriptions, not

WeatherBug is my morning go-to
by Durham SweetieBug on 2019/07/12 22:02
I like to walk for 30 minutes in the morning. When I jump out of bed, I look at my phone for any emergency calls or texts, breath a grateful sigh of relief when I don’t see any, and only allow myself to open one app - WeatherBug, which helps me determine what layers to wear outside. It is a trusted source of weather info! I love WeatherBug! 🌷🌿💕🌿🌷
Love the app!

Yes
by stoptakingnamed on 2019/07/12 16:29
The app lets me know when I get to shut my pool down and it’s so amazing to see that “take shelter immediately” warning
Accurate weather all the time
by JohnnyApple Pie In Sky on 2019/07/12 16:08
We’ve used this app for several years and love it! We have other weather apps but the weather bug is easy to use and fun too! We are able to get the weather anywhere in the world. We highly recommend this app!

It is very erratic. I only use it as to have the temperature. Can’t trust the weather reports. If it shows rain it doesn’t rain. And if it says no ray, better take my umbrella.

Nice Layout but Contradictory Forecasts
by Gif Bif on 2019/07/12 12:42
I like how the information in the app is laid out. I like how easy it is to switch between the 10-day forecast, hourly forecast, and map. I like the amount of information it provides, especially things like dew point and sunrise and sunset times. The problem with the app, and it is a MAJOR problem, is that the hourly and daily forecasts contradict each other. The forecast for the day will predict a 50% chance of storms, but the hourly forecast shows 0 to 30% chance of storms each hour. This renders the app unreliable.
Great app!
by crisvilla2019 on 2019/07/12 12:40
True as some reviewers have said little slow to load sometimes but overall like the app! Shows me weather at home and where my husband drives to.
I’d give it a 5 but....
by tundrabam on 2019/07/12 11:57
You’ve taken away the hurricane center on this app just as hurricane season is upon us. This is just a d!ck move.
Best weather app

This is my go-to weather app, very accurate and up to date
Best visuals of all weather apps
by LisaKS on 2019/07/12 02:55
I chose Weather Bug mainly because I can quickly and easily read the information - it isn’t tiny and hard to see like other apps. I love everything about it except the info is often contradictory between screens. And it also doesn’t match the local TV station app’s info either. Sometimes I compare the two to see it they match, and they don’t always match. So I don’t know who to believe.
Info I want
by Giruffuss on 2019/07/12 01:10
Weather Bug tells the usual weather and adds info about how close lightening strikes are to me.
Would love to give it 5 stars but......
by Minxi615 on 2019/07/12 00:33
I have used Weather Bug for many years on many different devices. The FIRST TIME I purchased WB as soon as I realized I liked it some years ago & enjoyed not having ads and some of the customization options I got by purchasing the app. Fast forward a couple years and a new device. I had issues getting the purchased one on the new device; CS said they could see my account but showed no record of my purchase. SO, I purchased WB again. Fast forward a couple years and a new device: Again, transfer issues..... I decided purchasing twice was enough. Since then I have just dealt with the free app.
Satisfied
by Charlie Hooah on 2019/07/11 23:03
I have no problem with this app. It provides me weather info each day. I have no issues with speed. Works well for myself.
Weather WASTE
by GameOn1 on 2019/07/11 22:38
I have used weather bug for a couple of years now. And it used to be really good. Now they just want money and its even more apparent now. Because when you open the app all you see is advertisements NO WEATHER, unless you want to dig trough the app to find where they put it. All they want is you to pay a RIDICULOUS $20 for a so called elite version. Total and complete GREED, DONT WASTE TOUR TIME!!!!
FAVORITE WEATHER APP!!!

Apps always seems to have trouble loading radar.....but never loading adds. Time for a new weather app.

So easy to use and so much info included. My go to source for weather both home and away. Love that you get hourly and long range forecast. Like having all my favorite cities listed.
Terribly slow and contradicting
by King of Rancho Cucamonga on 2018/07/09 22:47
It’s horribly slow to load any new info without jumping through hoops. Start switching cities, close out of it completely to name a couple and the radar is spotty at best. What I mean is huge chunks of the radar image are missing, conveniently it’s usually missing around the area I’m trying to look at. Does me no good if the nearest radar image is 200 miles away. Also the hourly and the 10 day rarely if ever jive. 10 day forecast may say %80 chance of storms this afternoon, the hourly will say sunny the whole time with %0 chance of rain and I suppose I could check the radar but oh wait, it doesn’t work. This app used to be absolutely perfect when I first got it in 2012 but now it’s just a headache. It’d be great if you fixed it but it is free so I guess I shouldn’t complain too much. So a few days later they claimed to have looked into the issue and corrected it. I’m telling you I wish everyone worked like these guys! It’s fixed and works flawlessly! The level of support and attention they paid to my measly whining is outstanding. You guys are top notch, thank you. I work outside so having a good weather app is important and you guys are spot on
All weather apps seem to be inaccurate
by xlemnrty on 2018/12/03 15:05
Is it me, or are others experiencing the same issues of inaccurate, not up-to-date weather no matter what app? It seems they all use the same local stations that must be very delayed in their updates to the various apps. Seriously ALWAYS off several degrees, and as for precipitation percentages, they’re so useless, I have begun to laugh at my own gullibility. A couple of mornings ago was so typical ... I wanted to take a bike ride and began looking at the forecast the prior evening showing ZERO chance of rain the next morning. Re-checked the next morning, and same ZERO % chance so I got dressed for my ride, pumped my tires, raised the garage door, when it began to rain ALL DAY. I re-checked the forecast an hour or so later, and the entire hourly forecast had changed. THE KICKER is that this same app has the audacity to provide a TEN DAY forecast 🤣🤣🤣. And almost as bad ... my gullibility to keep checking 🤔🤔🤔. Anyway, I think I’ll go back to the “stick my head out the door” method ... it’s more predictable. I get a bit of a chuckle when folks compare the presentation of info in reviews ... who cares about presentation if the data is unusable. Again ... this doesn’t seem to be a Weatherbug only issue as I have had the same experience with all four of the apps I’ve tried. It seems that the OLD-fashioned TV weather reports are more accurate the night before than the purported “real-time” weather apps.
My favorite weather app is screwed up
by TexGreenEyes on 2019/06/28 17:56
This has been my go-to weather app for years. It gets used multiple times a day, and has never given a hint of trouble. Scratch the glowing praises now because with this last update the app crashes on start-up. I followed the developer’s advice found in a response to someone else’s recent complaint and deleted/re-downloaded the app. Bad idea. The app started up once, and then promptly stopped working again, and I lost all my settings for no good reason. Come on, guys. Don’t let such a good app cause this much frustration. The second star I’m giving is based on my hope that you’ll get this fixed ASAP. Update: Shortly after I posted my review the app started working as expected. Then this morning, just 3 days later, it’s back to crashing at startup. I do not want to uninstall/reinstall again, as I did that before you suggested it in response to my original review. It didn’t work then. I hope this usually excellent app is mended soon. Update #2: It’s been about a week since my first update, and while the app is working better, it still occasionally crashes at startup. This happens about once every other day. I don’t know if it’s related, but the problem seems to occur when I first open the app and I’m not on wifi. Anyway, I’ve updated my stars accordingly.
Build me up, just to break me down
by The Mr's Mrs. on 2018/07/10 10:31
Downloaded WeatherBug app about 2 weeks ago and really liked it and then... the update. Initially, I was quite impressed and pleased with the push notification weather alerts for severe weather. I especially liked that the weather alerts would push to my phone at least 15 minutes before any of my other - even local - weather apps and that they even had a “dangerous storm warning” notification, which was correct each time I received it. The widget worked wonderfully as well and was probably my second favorite feature. Enter the update. Dun dun DUUUNNNN! It completely killed everything I enjoyed and appreciated about the app. I’ve not received a single push notification since nor has the widget been functional despite deleting the app and all its data from both my phone and AppStore account. The widget simply asks that I open the app and agree to TOU and PP, which is not even an option. You agree to the TOU upon initial launch of the app but that does not give the widget functionality. I also dislike that I am unable to remove the township that the app has deemed my home/current location and set it to the correct area as it is mistakenly locating me in another town. Sadly and disappointedly I am deleting the app permanently unless the next version, which seem to be released monthly, remedies these debilitating flaws and restores the app to its previous performance and reliability.
love this app!!
by maddflower on 2019/06/17 03:13
on memorial day, ohio had a really scary tornado outbreak and i'm lucky enough to have survived through it without being hit by one. i came across this app with my anxiety getting the better of me due to an extreme fear of tornadoes, but i can confidently say i'm happy i found it! it is extremely useful and very interesting to look on the radar. i love the alerts that it provides and they are VERY helpful. thanks for this great app! in light of these tornadoes in ohio, though, i really wish that i could be more reliable on this app with where the tornadoes are and if they have hit where i live. i'm on vacation without my family that lives there and last night when more hit was scary because i did not have a reliable source to where the tornadoes actually were and if my family was safe. i'm very happy with this app and i suppose it can't cover everything but it would have been really helpful to be able to track those tornadoes while it was happening! thank you anyways for such an amazing app, it has been really helpful and fun to mess around with. :)
Used to be better
by brad34785 on 2018/02/22 15:27
When I first downloaded this app several years ago it used to load information much faster, and more consistently. Now, many years and updates later, it rarely even loads any information when i am connected to wifi. The app will open and load the temperature on the home (default) screen when connected to wifi, but I have to turn off the wifi on my iphone, ensure I am connected to my cellular network, and switch between the “now”, “hourly”, and “10 Day” tabs in order to get the app to load information. It started doing this over a year ago. Initially I thought my Wi-Fi connection at home was just poor, but it turns out that I have the same problem connected to any Wi-Fi signal. I have also had this problem with 2 separate iphones. I occasionally delete the app and redownload it just to see if the problem may be a fluke, but I always end up with the same problem. This used to be my favorite weather app, but now I am exploring other apps because of my frustration with this issue. I still love the weather bug app, and in my opinion it has the very best radar maps of any app available. I just hate having to go through so many steps in order to get this app to function the way it is intended to. Please fix this!!!!!
Decent App
by evan.cooperman on 2018/09/27 15:33
Weatherbug is a decent app and I can’t decide whether to give it 3 or 4 stars. I guess I’ll go with 4 because I have only 1 major complaint, though it does bother the heck out of me. I use Weatherbug for my weather most of the time, but one of the biggest complaints I have is that it does not update throughout the day. For example if the forecast is 75 degrees and sunny but it’s only 60 degrees and is raining, the app accurately displays the temperature and weather as of this moment, but the forecast doesn’t update to take the changes into account. If it’s 5:59pm and it’s 60 degrees and raining, obviously at 6:00pm it’s not going to be 75 degrees and sunny! If the app would update with new data based on unforeseen weather patterns I would be much happier with it and would probably update to 5 stars. That, and if somehow they could figure out how to forecast more accurately! I know that is a bigger and more global problem to solve, and is not limited to this app, but here in Chicago the forecast is maybe correct (or close to correct) 50% of the time. I feel like it’s gotten worse over the years, but that’s probably just because our weather has gotten more erratic and is harder to predict now than it used to be.
Guys... this was ridiculous.
by Beansy Baby on 2018/09/17 22:24
As many of you know, and clearly this app was aware, there was a hurricane that affected the Carolinas etc. Once upon a time I loved this app, but since this hurricane hit, I cannot believe how repetitive and unhelpful this app was. I got CONSTANT notifications about extended hurricane statements, flash flood statements, and tornado statements. Those are all well and good THE FIRST TIME THEY ARE ISSUED. I had 15+ notifications while trying to conserve phone battery, I eventually turned them off. They also arrived 10+ mins later than TWC (which could be service provider related but not the point of this rant). What would have been most helpful Weatherbug, would have been actual storm updates. We had no power, no radio (our own fault) and couldn’t load a single app to see the radar, but thank god notifications came through.... giving us location/wind speed/ANYTHING useful would have been better. Don’t get rid of the statement updates completely.. maybe just start them as indefinite when there is a hurricane present. LASTLY, the notification that said: “Florence made landfall Friday in North Carolina! Watch the latest footage of the storm on weatherbug.” FORGET YOU. I LIVED THROUGH IT, had a tree fall on the roof while I was trying to sleep I KNOW A HURRICANE CAME THROUGH THATS INSENSITIVE AND UNFREAKINGHELPFUL. I have screen shots to prove all of this.
Not accurate enough
by Reenee17 on 2018/06/17 20:08
Sad to say, one year later, it's still not accurate for Loxahatchee, Florida. It is not reliable for folks who are attending sports events in our area, when alerts for lightening are necessary. Please fix this. I used to love this app, especially for monitoring storms and proximity of lightening. Unfortunately, it no longer has a base location close to where I live. The closest area is 12 miles away, and only tells me how many miles away the lightening strikes are from THAT area instead of from where I'm standing. I do live in a rural, unincorporated area, but even on WiFi, my current pinned location is not accurate. This is not helpful in monitoring lightening while I'm standing on the soccer field or out riding my bike in MY neighborhood. What is going on 12 miles away anywhere in Florida can be drastically different where I am standing. We were in the middle of a bad electrical storm right over us, and this app was telling me closest strike from another location 12 miles away and showed no immediate alerts. Very bummed. Others should be aware that some areas really are not covered, but doppler can at least give you an idea if a storm is moving towards or away from you. But any news channel doppler can also show you that.
Usually better than NWS or TWC apps
by TeriMelissa on 2018/06/24 19:07
I’ve been using the Bug since I got my very first iPhone. It zeroes in on my exact weather happening in the moment. There are many pinging spots near almost anywhere to give a good triangulation for my personal weather conditions within a few miles. The radar is easy to understand and accurate. The future casts are as accurate as I’ve ever seen ...and much better than even my 3 local meteorologists on tv. Even as far out as the 10 day forecast I know I can be ready for what may be coming. Where I live the weather is unpredictable moment to moment but Weatherbug stays on top of the quick changes. I love the storm tracker showing dangerous situations like nearby lighting and all severe weather threats. The UV rating, pollen counts and air quality reports are important to me as I am really fair, have severe allergies and asthma. The heads up to make sure I have the proper preventative meds/sunscreen make my outside time much more enjoyable. WeatherBug is an app I use daily; sometimes several times a day. I highly recommend it to everyone!
One of my favorite apps
by ProudPittieMom on 2019/01/27 06:44
I used WeatherBug on my desktop & work computers years ago & always enjoyed all the info it provided. Now, there’s even more info available & this app is very accurate in our rural location. My 2nd Service Dog has terrible allergies & I used to get pollen report emails thru this program, now I just check on the app. One improvement that I would love to see is the display of more info re: the amazing video clips. There are times when I’m completely unable to tell anything about a clip - where & when did this take place? Often, the brief captions shown as we pick out what video to watch, are clipped short so we don’t even know where this event takes place nor when. And to those generous souls providing the videos: I, for one, appreciate hearing your narrative during the clips. I don’t like to hear about last night’s party or what you’re serving for dinner, but I greatly appreciate hearing where you are filming & a date & any other relevant info about the video: thanks for sharing them with us!!
Very useful and easy to use
by MoppyDrunk.jr on 2019/06/22 12:50
Weatherbug is great! I feel like every possible weather related issue is addressed in this powerful little app. Information is easy to find, the home screen makes quick work of being able to check multiple weather related items. Noteable features: - Easy to check the weather in different locations. This is very useful if you are a frequent traveler. We add the location to which we are traveling and can easily keep an eye on the weather before we go. - Lightning Information. We have a pool and we check this frequently. It is right there at the push of a button, very quick and easy. - Detailed breakdown of the forecast. You are able to check the weather for the entire day, hourly, and even get a detailed rundown of the weather. - Easy access to weather alerts. This information is also easily accessible at just the push of a button. We are able to quickly check for tornadoes, flash flooding, etc. - Weather related videos. These are an interesting, fun little addition to the app. Videos showing cool weather related things that people have captured and videos of current weather related disasters around the country. - Easy access to check fires around the globe. Thankfully this isn’t a feature we need to use, but it is worth noting how quickly you are able to check this information. This is my family’s “go to” weather app. We’ve been using it for years and have never felt the need to look for something else.
Accuracy of Forecasts
by goblueinA2 on 2019/02/25 16:57
Over the past 15 years I’ve used almost all popular weather apps and for this review I’ll name two others that Weatherbug beats hands down; Accuweather and The Weather Channel app. One would think since the Weather Channel has been the pioneer in forecasts for the longest duration they would put out a dependable app. All too often when I was running that app the forecasts were far off too many times. I’ve never had that issue with weatherbug. Of course hourly conditions can change but what I love about weatherbug is the truth in radar. When the radar shows a front moments away it’s always been spot on. It’s saved me many times when I’ve been out hiking or biking. It gives me plenty of notice when to get the dogs out before a storm. It has also made me a go to guy at work when others want to know the upcoming weather conditions. If you want a dependable weather app look no further.
Please fix it, the app is broken.
by ZheAwesomePenguin on 2019/04/11 15:01
So I used to use WeatherBug a lot. But I do have to admit that sometimes the weather isn’t a true match to what’s happening. Granted, I live in Michigan, where one half of your lawn can be bright and sunny and the other half can be down pouring(I’ve personally witnessed it). But that’s besides the point. The data isn’t the same as what my friend gets from our local weather station. And just recently I tried to open the app to check the weather. (Mostly to read the radar. It’s more reliable to read it yourself if there’s rain or in this case, a spontaneous blizzard in the middle of April), when I discovered that the app takes 30 seconds to buffer, then immediately crashes back to my wallpaper. But, when I looked in the running background apps thing, it was there and so I clicked on it. I don’t know if what I was seeing was real or not, but it showed the normal degrees and the little radar thing, but then it froze and crashed again. The app in it's current state is completely unusable. I grew up watching WeatherBug on the tv every day before I left for school. It’s kind of sad that I have to leave and seek out another weather app. Even with all it’s bugs, I still liked this one.
USED to be my favorite for years!
by iplayd2day on 2019/05/16 14:35
Something happened a month ago after the app update of version 5.9 was completed. After that, my Weatherbug that would slay all of the other apps that family members had, was useless to me. I would sit there and watch an empty frame of the screen, while my data wildly searched to get SOMETHING on there. Still nothing would show up for a good minute or two. One in a while, 30 seconds. It's showing RIGHT NOW that our wind is blowing here at 6mph, yet for the last several HOURS, we've had damaging winds of over 50 mph continual gusts continue to hammer our area. Same thing happened yesterday as well. 6mph vs 50??? I have furniture MOVED off of my patio outside, pillows and tiki torches blown across the yard. I could have perhaps had fair warning to bring them indoors or had them weighed down, but the main issue in question is what happened a month ago and where did my weather bug go??? Can you bring it back? I've deleted and reinstalled several times hoping it would be a success, but it's the same thing, with my poor wifi JAMMING to try to load it up. Never had an issue before. The app was da bomb. Now it's totally useless.
Update: You Removed “Intolerable Flashing Message Icon”
by Mominmidwest on 2018/09/08 16:37
REVIEW UPDATE: THANK YOU, WeatherBug! I’m a WeatherBug fan again! I gave you a week to eliminate the “insanely rapid flashing ‘you’ve got a (trash) message’ icon” before I deleted your app. You removed the annoying add in 1 day! I will again be recommending your app to any one that needs to check the weather. WB=5xStars! PS The lightning ⚡️warning map feature is extremely helpful. Life saver! (*Original Review) I really liked the Weather Bug app for a couple of years. Seemed somewhat accurate. Love the lightning warning and locator feature. But this morning when I opened the WB app, the insanely rapid flashing “you’ve got a (trash) message” icon made me want to delete the app and give it a “0” star rating. I haven’t deleted it yet. I’ll give developer a week to get rid if this new annoyance before I delete the otherwise decent app. However, I am already searching for a different weather. app
Full of bloat & bad ux
by H0317 on 2019/05/20 17:27
The app does what it is supposed to do, but it is full of ads that are prioritized on loading. If you want to quickly check the weather make sure that you wait a few seconds for it to fully load the new data; Ive popped it open to read stale data and closed it many times before I realized it was totally wrong. If you open it up, it takes a long time to load the core of the app but displays ads quickly, which is fun in a hurry. For UX, they pack too much into the buttons and its hard to parse quickly with the eyes. Furthermore, the quick menu button has several mini components that go to different pages on click. You will invariably go to the wrong page (e.g 10 day forecast vs hourly vs time now). Add this to stale data and load times, you get a mess. It is frustrating to use, you have to wait long enough when looking to feel assured the data is trusted. When you click you go to the wrong page, wait for it to load, click the right page, wait for it to load, scroll past ads, find data. Its a silly construct and I’m done with it.
Stick to your default weather app
by Maurrie on 2019/01/19 16:49
I work for my city plowing snow, cutting grass etc, so knowing the weather is apart of my job because I need to be prepared for random call ins and so on. This app sent me completely off. All day I’m checking my default weather app, and Weather Bug, and they’re saying two completely different things. My default app is saying snow starting Friday night leading into all day Saturday. Weather Bug is saying an hour of snow at 11pm then more light snow from like 4am to 10 am Saturday morning. I stay up doing some late reading cus I of course want to believe the forecast with less snow. At around 11:30pm I check Weather Bug again, and it’s completely changed to snow all night leading into snow all day Saturday. But get this. It keeps switching back and forth between barely any snow, to snow all day. Had my job called me in overnight I would’ve been completely crap out of luck, and exhausted working through early Saturday morning into Saturday evening. To sum things up, I will definitely stick to my default weather app. It’s not the fanciest, buts it’s been pretty accurate so far. Definitely more reliable than Weather Bug.
Spark lightning is my favorite part
by RitaRH5 on 2019/07/04 12:27
A few years ago, I worked at a horse boarding farm. No one lived on site. Any time we had lightning, I could watch for strikes on the property from the safety of my home. There were a few times strikes did occur, and I was able to drive out to check on the animals and fence lines, after it was safe to be outside. Even though I no longer work there, I use this feature regularly. Last fall, there was an F0 tornado that passed one block south of my house. The NWS had not issued a warning, and no sirens were turned on. I received a Tornado Warning alert from Weatherbug, and had time to get dogs, cats, and myself to the basement. Many of my neighbors had been watching the storm from their windows, with no idea they should take cover. If it had been a stronger tornado, most likely lives could have been lost. Thank you Weatherbug for keeping me safe that day.
This one is the best
by Fredtruus on 2019/04/30 14:00
I have been using weather bug for a long time. It has been my go to app for the most accurate weather. It is more up to date than all the rest. Even better than my local TV weather app that calls themselves the weather authorities. I have several U.S. states as well as my wife’s country of the Netherlands as my set locations and I always now the current and upcoming weekly forecast for all those locations. When a storm is happening, which is a lot here in Texas. I’m always on top of the situation by opening the radar map and tracking it down to almost exact accuracy. I have been able to tell my wife to the minute when the rain is going to come. Sometime all those dark red colors are a bit scary, but I think get all that much better to prepare than not know. So with this said. I think this is the weather app to use.
Inaccurate radar in Central America
by Microminimike on 2019/05/24 07:36
I’ve been dependent on this app for a long time in the USA with much success with the radar and seeing storms approaching all the time but now that I’m here in Mexico for a vacation I’m finding major huge areas of bad storms nowhere on this radar map. I’ve already gotten soaked twice because of this awful no Central America radar. Accuweather has the accurate radar for Mexico and Central America as all I did was google search “weather radar in Mexico”. Right now as I’m writing this review there is some big rain over Mexico City and surrounding cities not to mention a major tropical storm over Honduras but on this weatherbug radar map there’s not a drop of precipitation showing. Yeah you can see other parts of the world and USA but why not Mexico?! I’m seeing major heavy rain and thunder and lighting with my own eyes and I can’t believe this app has let me down so bad here in Mexico after being such a major dependable radar in the USA. Very dissatisfied and disappointed. You guys need to get on the ball and fix this or copy from accuweather or something because I’m totally about to delete this app.
My favorite weather app — by far
by Vivideaux on 2018/09/27 02:05
I have tried many weather apps in my day, but Weatherbug tops them all: Tightly linked with National Weather Service data and marvelously easy to use. My wife gets her data from the Weather Channel, which seems fine until you ask the question “Who beats the National Weather Service for meteorological accuracy?” I love the lightning strike feature, which shows strikes that, in my experience, is pretty much instantaneous. I love being able to wake up where I am, or go (or plan to go) anywhere and see a 10-day forecast that you can drill down into, so you are seeing hour-by-hour forecasts. I love the layered, animated weather maps that show me weather patterns here, over the Atlantic, or anywhere else in the world. Weatherbug has always been there for me, rock-solid, and it just seems to keep getting better.
My go to weather app
by Rob Smelik on 2018/10/26 02:12
I have had a good experience with this app and have been using it for quite a few years. I think it is important to note that this and other weather apps are only as good as the data that feeds them. I live in Northern Virginia and because it is a fairly well populated area the data feeds are updated regularly leading to fairly accurate forecasts. This may not be the same in other areas. Unlike some other reviewers I have found the information to be quite accurate. As far as what is displayed I have always found that this app provides a wide range. From daily and hourly forecasts to live radar and emergency alerts it covers pretty much everything. I pay the yearly subscription to hide the ads which I found annoying. I figure that money helps with future updates and improvements.
Gulf Coast Area
by PatLouise on 2019/05/10 02:41
Weather reports are accurate and always on point. Warnings and alerts on conditions of current, and future forecasts allows enough time to make whatever needed preparations. During Great weather forecasts, it’s always nice to watch the informative videos about what’s happening in other local, or national locations. The Weather Bug not only informs us about the weather conditions accurately, there are also interesting videos and beautiful photos of our natural environment, various birds, animals, etc. I have enjoyed the Weather Bug app for several years. Whenever a friend shows me their weather app, I tell them that Weather Bug will give you more detailed and accurate information, in any local city area or State. I recommended Weather Bug to family and friends who lives in other states. They love it too!
Update made big difference!
by dustyjean on 2019/01/10 17:56
After I downloaded the latest iOS I had a lot of trouble with WeatherBug and had been so pleased with it in the past. I was turned onto the app by a good friend of mine who is a cross country 18 wheeler driver and he has been raving about it for ages. I first downloaded it about three or four years ago. After having this recent difficulty with the app - long load time and inability to get hourly forecast etc. - I went ahead and deleted it and reinstalled from the App Store. It made a huge difference!! And now I am back to using it on a routine basis and loving it - has been very accurate. I live well outside of Austin Texas in a small town and it uses local weather information from local reporting stations. Keep up the great work and I have referred this app to many many people and will continue to do so!!
Reliable and Accurate Weather App
by TexasChuy on 2018/02/10 14:05
The Weather Bug App is reliable, accurate and above all easy to use! It has several easy to find functions to see the weather in your area with accuracy because it uses several different weather stations in your city not just one downtown. My family all have it installed to use when planning their school or work day and looking ahead at the week. We also use it when going out of town. Again it has proven itself a awesome buy because even in other cities away from home the Weather Bug app has given us accurate and an easy to use tool to plan what clothes to pack for that trip. Every time it has been has spot on! I appreciate the effort and staff that keep this app updated and nearly ad free. A definite great app to have.
Informative, BUT -
by DJ at East Coast, USA on 2018/03/21 02:59
Have been using WeatherBug a while and have liked the features. Seems more accurate for me than other reviewers probably as I live near coast which has good weather networks due to hurricanes (even though somewhat away the city). BUT recent updates have taken away ability to reorganize features on the Now page by their needed priority. It’s driving me NUTS. Please, Please fix this as certain weather features are more urgently needed than others (while you’re adding more) & trying to scroll through all that isn’t helpful when you’re half asleep or in a hurry after a notification. Thankfully I had already done some reprioritizing before we lost the ability. Otherwise a more informative app than the apple-included TWC iPhone app - I use this daily.
Not accurate...
by Ibanezgrindd on 2018/08/10 07:02
We hardly get any rain here in Phoenix, and when it finally rains, the current weather shows as partly cloudy. We’ll have wind, lightning, thunder.. etc etc and it’s partly cloudy according to weatherbug. When its very very hot here (a picture of a sun with cactus) it shows 0% chance of rain in the valley of the sun for the week to come so I expect to see very hot as the forecast day in and day out. Don’t need weatherbug for that! Strangely one of those 0% precipitation days the clouds started to build heavily and then weatherbug changed its mind and changed the day’s forecast to chance of storms hours before it rained. I downloaded accuweather to do some comparisons in the week to follow. Accuweather had actual percentages for each day for that week. Weather bug had 0% the whole week. It rained twice that week. The 2 days it rained, weatherbug changed it mind that it was going to rain when there was a a visual storm in the sky. But I thought it was 0%? Terrible predictions and un-accurate information. I’ll stick with accuweatherfrom now on
My New Favorite Weather App
by wasteoftym on 2017/09/29 23:59
I had been using Wunderground for the past few years, but when we experienced a recent heatwave with high humidity out here in SoCal I was checking the humidity levels daily on Wunderground and it was giving me numbers that were way off. My body can tell the difference between high humidity and low, and I was feeling it. Yet Wunderground was reporting the humidity at levels like 36%. Um....no way! This kept being consistently wrong for weeks, so I downloaded a couple new apps to try instead. Weather Bug was the best of the bunch. I like the way it's laid out and how it reads on my screen. I find it to be consistently accurate. I'd even buy a paid version to get rid of the ads. They are only mildly annoying, but I prefer my apps that I use a lot to be ad-free. Give it a try!
Getting better everyday
by To bad4me. on 2019/03/10 12:29
I switched to Weather Bug about a year ago and the more I use it the better I like it. Because things are presented a little differently it took me a while to find everything but it has more usable features than the other app I was using. My wife still has the other app and we compare notes all the time. Weather Bug is accurate more of the time than the other major app in my opinion. I do not like the sponsored stories on either app but I could not give weather bug 5 stars because on the rare occasion that I try to view one, they generally sit there and spin or say it is not available at this time. This is a rare use for me so it is not a big problem but thought I should mention it for complete honesty.
Love this weather app but...
by Charmed824 on 2018/10/01 15:02
This has been my “go to” app for weather for years. I love the hourly information, especially the hourly dew point info. However, over the last month or so, the app freezes up, takes forever to refresh or load when clicking between the different options (hourly, 10 day, etc). I hope these glitches will be fixed! UPDATE: This app still doesn’t seem as accurate. It will say one thing for the current conditions, but the hourly condition shows something completely different. And the dew point is never accurate. Currently it says the dew point is 39 but my local Tv station weather app shows the dew point is 51. Plus, I don’t like how I have to scroll all the way down to view the current observations..that info should be right there when you open the app so it’s quick and easy.
Ok, but often just plain wrong
by Bogiebogs on 2018/08/07 11:29
I got this app after trying a bunch of weather apps. It is very intuitive and has the basics of what I want in a weather app. I know the current conditions, have access to hourly forecasts, 10 day forecasts, and maps. The radar is great and is easily accessible. If I want more info, I just scroll down and there it is. My main problem is that the prediction of future weather is often just wrong. For instance, the ten day forecast has for each day a high temperature below 90 and a 50+ percent chance of rain. But when each day actually comes, magically the high is in the mid 90s and the rain chances are zero. Even today was a high of 88 yesterday and today it’s 93. Fifty percent chance of rain for today in yesterday’s forecast, today—nothing. How can it be wrong so often? I like this app for the radar, but for anything other than a few hours out, it’s kinda useless.
Can't arrange NOW page
by montanabobw on 2018/03/31 12:46
My favorite weather app. The info provided is most often more accurate than other apps. I would give the app 5 stars except for: 1) Prior versions allowed the various segments of the NOW page (wind, lightning, UV, etc.) to be rearranged to the user's liking. That ability has unfortunately disappeared. Like another user below, I don't want the new air quality segment at the top of the list. It's good info but it's just not as important to me as other info. In fact, I'd probably put it at or near the end of the list. 2) I've never understood the "flopping around" (various info blinking) that occurs when the app is started. Eventually, after a few seconds, it settles down and stops flopping. It's done this for me for many many versions and on a number of different devices. I write apps for a living. There should be no flopping.
Great weather app
by Pzamz on 2017/12/30 21:15
Got tired of the weather channel app getting slower and slower and taking forever to load and just scroll down the page so tried this and not only is it instantly quick, but put together with common sense. The location of the features were very well thought out and very easy and convenient to use. The pop up instructions are a brilliant idea. Love the fact that it has weather and traffic cams too, that i dont have to use other separate apps. Although it has news and videos the smart thing is they don’t load automatically, which i believe keeps the app fast. You have the option to start a video and that’s the smart way to do it. What’s killing the weather channel app is they don’t give you a choice and the videos run automatically slowing down the app to a crawl. Goodbye weather channel app, you just helped me free up a lot space too!
Much better than Weather Channel!
by DieselDude92 on 2018/10/20 03:25
I had used the Weather Channel app for years. Tolerated the click bait irrelevant videos, annoying ads and obnoxiously frequent platform changes. After the Weather Channel reporter faking the struggle to remain standing while others casually walked along in the background 😂 I finally decided I had enough of the Weather Channel and gave in to my wife’s suggestion to use Weather Bug. I’ll never go back! It’s basically everything on the Weather Channel app without annoying ads and irrelevant click bait videos. In fact, the videos on Weather Bug don’t require you to watch an annoying non-skippable ad before the video like Weather Channel does. The platform is easy to use and works great. Thanks Weather Bug!
Best weather app available
by Andriod3508 on 2017/12/28 03:20
Weather bug has been the most accurate weather app I have ever had and still is. The representation of the storm has been so accurate that I have always been able to see exactly when a storm starts and when it ends. It gives the most information in the radar picture of any other app. My only complaint is that there is not a pay version of this app. I would pay for it no problem because I hate the adds. Which get worse over time the longer I own this app. It is well worth paying for this since it is the best weather app ( and I have tried a lot and have paid for a few). My only complaint is there is not a paid version. Hate the comerciales . This app is well worth paying for.
Used to be the best weather app out there.
by Lovinbosco on 2018/06/27 20:35
This app is still the one that's the most dependable as well as accurate. There are those times during the year especially in the spring, that we count on their radar, above others, to track super cells and the like because of where we live. I depend on Weather Bug because their radar is updated quicker than the others. This is the weather app I check out everyday, sometimes many times a day when there’s bad weather, I'm glad to have it. I also like that we have our own local pictures now that we can look at as well as around the world. I do wish they would make it so we could comment on them though. There are some outstanding pictures in the gallery that I would love to compliment the photographers on. Low mark is because the took out satellite radar. That helped on so many levels. Thanks
Everything in one place
by Sweaterbug on 2019/04/17 14:03
UPDATE: the new version that auto updated today crashes so I can’t access all the information I love getting. 😕 2nd UPDATE: WeatherBug made the big fix in less than 12 hours. Happy customer again. The AD at my school showed me Weather Bug and the "spark" feature which shows lightning strikes in the local area. I coach, too, so I got it to be able to decide on holding or canceling practice. It fairly automatically switches my location to stay with me and my local conditions in an easy way, and you have access to local radar on the opening screen that is more current than other apps I've tried. The daily and 10 day forecasts are bare bones but useful. It packs a lot into a small space and presents it well.
Don’t support this app and it’s political hate ads!
by cindy m77 on 2018/01/02 13:23
I have used this app for a number of years. I recently signed on and was exposed to extreme right-wing hate ads. I will not support an app that encourages divisiveness and hate. They should choose their adds more wisely. Don’t download it. Update: After posting this, I was contacted by a representative from the company who devoted a great deal of his time researching this. Apparently ads are regional and may not be screened to prevent this type of political ad. He searched for this and other similar ads and reported that the company was going to remove them. I hope so. Kudos to Weatherbug for their prompt and positive response. I am changing my ratings from one star to three for their effort to prevent this but they should certainly screen all their ads.
Appreciated
by Helonie Balony on 2018/09/24 13:34
Really do appreciate knowing what our weather is right up to our home! For example, yesterday which was a Sunday, I was able to ascertain whether we could be able to go to church or not. We are both handicapped, and even though I can still drive, it is difficult to take my husband as he is in a wheelchair. It was pouring rain at 8:30 A.M. we were to leave at 9:15. Your Weather bug enabled me to see that the rain had stopped and we were able to go to church. I am amazed at the accuracy of your weather reports . The other reason for our appreciation is that during a storm I can get the weather on my I Pad when the weather messes up our ability to get weather from our TV Thank you again and again!
Advertisements, Advertisements and More Advertisements
by Traxel on 2018/07/21 19:57
I PURCHASED WeatherBug so I could skip the ads included in the free version. They have chosen to ignore the purchases made by who knows how many people and insult the buyer be placing LARGE and annoying ADVERTISEMENTS in the current version. In addition, the application displays a RED number 1 on the home screen of my iPad but when I launch the app there are NO Weather Alerts. Is this to ensure that more of the unwanted ads are seen? Living in a part of the country where weather alerts are frequent I need an app that is reliable. Don't waste your money or time with this app. Find an application that will provide you valid weather alerts and does not include large advertisements. So far I am using AccuWeather and MyRadarPro.
Great if you like ads that trick you...
by Cainusrising on 2018/09/16 17:34
I used to love this app, but 2 minutes ago I finally had enough. I live in Western North Carolina and I am watching Hurricane Flo very closely. I went on my Weatherbug App to check out the latest news and, WHAT’S THIS?!?! I had a flashing message symbol, as if I might need to know something right away. Nope! It was just yet another tricky ad Weatherbug had allowed that took me to another page where I was asked to spend money on a product I didn’t want. I’m through. Throwing in the towel. You win advertisers. Good luck in your future endeavors. Weatherbug creators, I hope you make tons of money off of these sorts of unscrupulous ads. I understand the need to have them, but not during a storm where (so far) 14 people have died and people need to get up to date info. Having ads is fine, but not like this. It’s not like there aren’t other weather apps out there that don’t have these types of ads. I’ll keep looking and find one that doesn’t allow manipulative ads.
New version 5.9.1 has not fixed the bugs.
by Disgust by your greed on 2019/05/09 18:02
The new version is not fixed the bugs in this app. The radar still runs at lightning fast speed after you run through the Radar loop three or four times. Also there is a new bug now when you zoom out on the radar. The radar goes black because it’s failing to refresh as you back out on the radar. Takes 10 to 15 seconds for the radar map fills in. This is not due to my connection. I have superfast Internet and a very strong Wi-Fi signal.I’ve had this app for many years and there’s always been a bug of some kind. I’ve sent feedback to the developers and I’ve never gotten a response nor have they addressed the problem. also they have an updated the satellite map on the radar for a very long time because areas on the map that I personally know of have shown no change from years ago. I’m just gonna find a better weather app.
Glitches
by LewisLady on 2018/09/04 21:02
WeatherBug used to be my favorite weather app. I especially liked the spark lightning feature that lets you see where lightning strikes have happened. That’s a key safety help! But in the last month or two, it has started being very unreliable. In the middle of a lightning storm, sometimes it will say “stay alert,“ and then if you refresh it it says “Seek shelter immediately,” and the map shows that a lightning strike has happened 15 minutes ago just a couple miles from your house. And what’s much worse, is that now there are annoying ads on it that flash repeatedly at you, as though an urgent message has come through from a friend. I did not fall for it, but it is highly annoying, and deceptive. Weatherbug should not except those kinds of stupid annoying flash-ads!!!
Fortitude
by MC Sanders on 2018/03/17 04:55
We use this app for all family outdoor activities, fishing, snorkeling diving, Baseball, Cheer practice. Weather patterns change, get stalled or alter in one way or another. What I like most about WBug, when weather reports need to redrafted, Weatherbug has the fortitude to make immediate changes in their reports. Great info regarding weather changes in patterns & how changes will affect daily travel and commutes. Not to mention the Lighting Sensor Spark in you r menu. If your family is outdoors, this app is a MUST. Lightening detector from Wbug may save you or your family’s life some day. Recently, for safety reasons to protect all children, my Mom was heavy handed with City and County officials. Her mission was to see that every school, city or county park/bball/soccer/football field operated by city and county staff in Lee County be equipped with fully functional lightning detectors. Guess what? Mom worked tirelessly and pulling in a few favors with the behind the scene good guys, she was able to help seal a deal including county, city and school board officials with Weatherbug. A win win situation for all involved. We especially appreciated the prompt installation with jfully functional equipment. It’s a ***** rating from me. MC Fort Myers, FL
Perfect All-In-1 Weather App
by DMOGSLNJ on 2018/10/25 20:07
If you are looking for a straight-forward weather app, that not only provides you with basic weather, but also advanced weather layer options, look no further! You also can enter in and receive weather alerts for multiple locations, receive LIGHTNING STRIKE maps, wind, rain, snow, pressure and other advanced radars / layers. By far this is one of my main go-to weather apps along with RadarScope for the most detailed look into a storm cell. For the average person looking for weather, locally or far away, you can not go wrong by having WeatherBug! I’ve had it since it was first released, and I’ve literately NEVER had one glitch or error with it! Download it... you won’t regret it.
Loved it better in Maryland
by Swainwright on 2018/05/02 15:44
Living in Maryland and working as an athletic trainer this was my go to app. It did seem to freeze more when I really needed it to tell me where the lightning strikes and storms were occurring but it was a great supplement to our campus warning system. Great to add other US cities or even European cities when we traveled. Great for knowing what was happening in Fairbanks AK (brother) or while venturing over to Scotland (vacation with the wife). Moved overseas this past year and the app is ok for global weather. Mostly because weather is not as exciting here in Lebanon, and the Middle East does not have a 24/7 weather channel (temperate climate most of the time). Fairly accurate abroad but functions better on the east coast of the US. Love the SPARK feature! Even in Beirut it works! Most of the time. Good app for most weather inquiries. Better than what comes with the phone.
What's going on
by Pleasefixyoutubenow on 2018/01/24 12:06
I've used this app for years but lately I haven't liked using it. I know that weather predictions often change but the 10 day forecast changes drastically like 15 times a day now. It goes from snow to sunny to rain to freezing rain. It never used to do this. Honestly, this app hasn't been predicting the weather accurately. For example, in 2 days, no matter what it says it's gonna be on the 10 day forecast today, it's going to change a lot in 2 days. I get sometimes being unsure and really having to change predictions but this is more than I've experienced in the past using this app. I am just frustrated because I don't even know what the weather is anymore unless I look at another weather app and I don't feel like this source is reliable at the moment.
Cute but not totally accurate
by cons2g on 2018/09/25 07:59
I got this app because of the nearly 5-Star rating, but it doesn’t seem to be terribly accurate for my area. I’m not sure if that’s because it’s just not accurate or if it’s because the reporting station is too far away, but either way, I have other apps that are more accurate. I’m sorry that’s the case, because I love the look of this app and the type of info they present. For example, none of my other apps include air quality, which is important to me. Also, I like the detail of the 10-day forecasts (I know that 10th day is just guessing, so take it with a grain of salt, but still a nice presentation). I will continue to glance at this app, but know that it’s often off by as much as 10 degrees on the current temp and 12 hours on predicting rain or other major weather changes.

Data hog

Really like the storm tracker, but had to turn cellular data off for the app after it ran up 339 MB bill.
Gives hourly dew point estimates
by Mousebennett on 2019/07/17 01:37
Any kind accurate weather forecasting is difficult. But they seem to give it their best. I love the hourly forecasts which include dew points. High dew points seem to negatively impact the feel of warmer weather, so I like to have an educated guess. It helps planning the week in very uncomfortable and hot weather.

What happened?
by swathergirl on 2019/07/16 22:32
I have been using weather bug for years. It was spot on (especially the lightening strikes)and a great app. But anymore it is slow , doesn’t load at all , or is off in the forecasting and radar image.
From great to horrible in 2 days
by bluevenn on 2019/07/16 22:23
What happened? Your reliability ran off a cliff. You say it’s thunder and lightning but it’s sunshine for miles here. Temperatures between the NOW and HOURLY screens vary by 20 degrees. 2 days ago I gave you a 5 star rating. Today you’re barely 1 star at best. Hope an update comes soon or I’m switching.
My sister was right!
by Eli8814 on 2019/07/16 21:00
She said WeatherBug is super accurate and she’s right! Very good up to date weather info!
No alerts *update**
by Genetic Amoeba on 2019/07/16 20:17
*update* I had to uninstall And reinstall 2 times to allow alerts. All is well Thank you. Current iOS user. No alerts with this app. Very disappointed
Great App
by roof geek on 2019/07/16 20:16
Very helpful in the roofing industry. Depending on reception the app has provided much needed info in a timely manner.
Too many ads, too little weather!
by Yabbadabba2 on 2019/07/16 19:06
The latest update wiped out almost all the weather info in the Now and 10-day sections and replaced it with a massive number of ads. This app is now next to useless. Fortunately they’re not the only weather app out there. Bye Weatherbug!
Great app
by Laiuka926 on 2019/07/16 18:13
Very accurate considering that it showing predicted weather. There are so many great features to this app including hourly/daily/weekly predictions, spark, photos, UV info, allergen info, etc, not to mention that you can change and store other cities you are interested in keeping current with. Just an amazing amount of information easily at your fingertips.
Accurate
by nhcaligirl on 2019/07/16 18:03
Much more accurate than our local news station I don’t even listen to them anymore I always check weatherbug.
Good balance of info
by InternalCombustion on 2019/07/16 17:26
Decent radar, good amount of detail. My go-to weather app
Cool!
by jacobcantu on 2019/07/16 13:55
This is one of my favorite weather apps!
Wonderful app
by Bffforever on 2019/07/16 13:02
This a great app. We use it everyday and it especially useful when traveling.
Wind accuracy
by Volplyr on 2019/07/16 11:32
I rely on weather bugs accuracy all around for my job and for everyday as well. Although it is usually quite accurate, the wind accuracy is probably the most unreliable data on this app. And with my job I really need to know what the wind speeds and direction it’s coming. I have been relying on other apps that are more accurate. So with that I can only give a 3 out of 5 stars. Hopefully this changes in the future.
Most Reliable
by Rome e. Rome on 2019/07/16 11:26
I’ve used this program since 2000 before there were apps and the app it’s self is easy to navigate and very reliable. Plus i enjoy the little details like pollen and humidity.
Love it!

I’m at the screen that has the ‘I Agree’ button, but it won’t let me click on it. I’ve been through the Terms of Agreement and Privacy Policy many times and it still won’t work.
Never right.
by UFCGaitor on 2019/07/16 01:29
This app never seems to get it right. It feels like it’s literally guessing. I’ve had it for about 2 years and I’ve finally given up on it.
Better than most
by Rockn78 on 2019/07/16 00:51
Accurate forecasts when on the hourly page. The daily page is disappointing because it shows rain but when switching to the hourly page, the rain is minimal.
Love it

by Hkl87 on 2019/07/15 22:38

Why am I seeing pictures of naked women in this app?
by cardaf on 2019/07/15 21:21
I use this app all the time. I like how easy it is to bring up the radar. However in the ads I have started to see pictures that I don’t feel are appropriate. I’m wondering why?
Terrific app!
by orchman on 2019/07/15 21:18
We spend a lot of time in our motorhome and depend on this app to keep us safe and give us time to react to upcoming weather so we can move or decide to stay where we are. Easy to use and I haven’t had any problems with it at all!
Works great!
by American Dad on 2019/07/15 19:16
I have no complaints with this app as I have used it for many years without any major issue. Sue it has times when it seems that the app isn’t working like it should but usually it’s because of the internet or cell service being the weak link. Oh by the way, I know weather “prediction” is just that, a prediction. It isn’t an exact science so eep up the good work
One of the best and most popular for Weather apps
by The Forever iPhone man on 2019/07/15 19:09
This app usually always flawlessly only a few little glitches here and there. I’d say one of the best apps and it has one of the best interfaces and graphics of any weather app and the app team do a good job keeping it up-to-date!
5 Stars
by epec on 2019/07/15 18:30
Use it all the time. More accurate then others!
Great localized weather, temps and alerts
by Vince_1970 on 2019/07/15 17:43
WeatherBug has a lot of local stations to choose. I get more accurate data from this app than the one that comes with the phone. It’s my go to WX app.
Love the alerts
by Cranny05 on 2019/07/15 17:05
I used to only use the Weather Channel app, but I switched when I discovered Weather Bug. I love the alerts during severe weather.
Accurate and dependable
by Farm boy 1 on 2019/07/15 14:39
Best weather app I have used yet!
The Best
by SlideRule2 on 2019/07/15 14:36
It is by far the best, and I have purchased and used nearly all of the most recommended. It is attractive, accurate, easily used, contains all the useful information, and alerts you to all needed info, and finally supplies wonderful pictures.
Great App!
by JNL79 on 2019/07/15 13:54
This is a great app! I really enjoy all the features and how up to date it is as soon as I check it.
My favorite weather app!
by Matt-R-Fact on 2019/07/15 13:00
Weather Bug is my go-to weather app! I especially love the lightning tracker feature. It’s very useful on summer pool days!

Weather bug

Works good for me
Just wrong
by Hjglover on 2019/07/15 10:28
This app is always wrong. It says it’s raining when it’s dry and dusty, it says 0% chance of rain when it’s raining. For weeks it’s been showing “increased storm chance for the next 3 hours” warnings, constantly. App displays 40% chance of rain on the daily forecast for 2-3 days, but the hourly shows 0% for every hour for every available day. This app is absolutely useless for weather or making plans around the weather. You’d be better off just going outside and looking around.
Awesome

Great app even for this Senior Citizen. Often for my age group instructions are unclear but not Weather Bug. Easy easy to use and very accurate. What’s there not to like!!!
Love WeatherBug

Best free weather app available!
Not even close anymore
by deehumter72 on 2019/07/14 22:23
Used to be spot on, now it may be pouring rain and weatherbug says sunny. Used to be highly accurate, now maybe right 1 day out of 10!!! Not sure where your info is coming from but might rethink who you are getting it from, i can do a better job looking outside and knowing when rain or a storm is coming in!!!
Just look at the map
by Dflachjr on 2019/07/14 20:55
Regularly the hourly predictions are incorrect. The maps seem to be pretty accurate though, so I look at the map in motion and take a guess based on the motion. My way may not be perfect but it is better than the hourly predictions.
Great App

I love this App! Always get up to date weather information.
My only weather app.

A great weather app, better, IMHO than the weather channel app. They continue to update it, plus fix any bugs that pop up.

0.0 miles away seek shelter now
by kittycat901 on 2019/07/14 11:43
Love this app. I hate lightening. Love the maps showing you where the lightening is. Even told me 0.0 miles away seek shelter now. Yes the lightening was in my yard just feet from my house. Thanks weatherbug.
Load and show!!
by Memeballew on 2019/07/14 11:43
Ours loads fast if there is no cloud cover. I’ve used other radars and this one shows our place way out in the boonies better than the others. I’d really like to know the time lapse of how far behind the weather radar is from the approaching storms. And if there is any way to improve service during a storm. Thanks for all you do!

This App has improved since I last rated it. It goes smother and does not take as long to download information. I’m happy with it now as the info it provides is really useful on the daily basis. Thank you
When you work outside

Excellent weather app
by OMMmm61 on 2019/07/13 20:46
format is simple, and easy to use. Very accurate. I especially like the hourly breakdown of temperature, and dew point, which, in the summer, gives me a much better production of how hot and humid it’s going to be. Much better than humidity data. radar is great, accurate, quick, and easy to use. Best weather app I have ever used. Star doesn’t seem to work, I’d give it a five out of five.
You don't know what your talking about

Works good
by California cool on 2019/07/13 14:42
I’ve used weatherBug for nearly a year. It works good every time. Whenever traveling it keeps up with current location. I pare it with another more interactive radar and we’re golden. The recommendation to me came from a couple who live and travel full time in their huge van.
The Only Bug I Luv..
by Curiosityscat on 2019/07/13 13:36
I Luv my Weather Bug App! It keeps me informed of the Weather in my Favorite Cities Worldwide, literally, from Louisiana, USA to multiple Cities in various US States (Miami/FL, Hubbard/OH, Richmond/VA, etc), and even Countries like Italy (just out of curiosity). I highly recommend that You Customize Your view, which I feel makes the experience a LOT better! Simply rearrange the various options, like: Local Live Weather Cameras, Pollen+Ozone Level Monitoring, ans even things like Local Lightening Strike Monitoring. Plus, it gives GREAT LIVE-TIME WEATHER WARNINGS, like Flash Flood Warnings, Severe Storm Warnings, Etc. I really do use & couldn’t live as Worry Free and Comfortably without my Little Weather Bug sitting on my Home Screen, where I can just Pop On & Check the Weather..I tried a TON of other Weather Apps, including the NOAA, Weather Underground, Accuweather, and others, and I still really like Weather Bug for my Weather updates, and when You live somewhere like Louisiana with Tropical Storms and a Hurricane Season, constant High and even Dangerous Humidity Levels, Rain for Weeks at a time, and Flash Flooding, plus all of the other sometimes volatile weather conditions, staying up on the latest weather conditions from one Hour to one Day, much less a Week in advance is Critical, not an option. And, I’ve found Weather Bug’s weather predictions to be A LOT more ACCURATE than even our Nightly News Weather People (+the same goes for in other Cities, as I’ve had conversations with Friends living elsewhere about their local weather, versus what their Weather Reporters were predicting, and Weather Bug has had them beaten on accuracy Hands Down over and over again!!) From Snow to Rain to Sunshine, Weather Bug somehow gets it RIGHT more often than anyone else I’ve used as a Weather source, so GREAT JOB on that Weather Bug! Plus, if I need to know “Right Now” what weather is like elsewhere, I can always just Pop onto Weather Bug and check a local Live Time Weather Cam! Which I think is neat, because we all know that sometimes it can be Sunny and Warm one place and 10 or 20 miles away it can be Pouring down raining a deluge! But, looking at a Live Time Local Camera shows Right Then, Right There and there is no getting the weather “wrong”. Locally for me, Weather Bug’s Live Time Local Weather Cams are hooked into (show on Weather Bug) our Local State’s Highway Monitoring Cameras, so I can even check what the Weather is like just up the road at various Highways and Highway Entrance/Exits that I routinely Travel, Plus, I also get the added benefit of Traffic conditions. So, that’s my lengthly and overly Gushing with Gratitude Review and Opinion of my Weather Bug App. If You use the Weather Bug for a while Yourself, I think You’ll be just as hooked on, and convinced of it’s practical use, and need in Your own life, as I am!
Great app, maps slow
by Jump48fun on 2019/07/13 12:02
This app has a lot of great data and loads multiple cities as favorites. The GPS location works really well when you don’t want to learn the cities outside of your area. My only gripe is how slow radar maps load and sometimes don’t even show up.

WeatherBug is my morning go-to

I like to walk for 30 minutes in the morning. When I jump out of bed, I look at my phone for any emergency calls or texts, breath a grateful sigh of relief when I don’t see any, and only allow myself to open one app - WeatherBug, which helps me determine what layers to wear outside. It is a trusted source of weather info! I love WeatherBug! 🌷🌿💕🌿🌷

Nice Layout but Contradictory Forecasts
by Gif Bif on 2019/07/12 12:42
I like how the information in the app is laid out. I like how easy it is to switch between the 10-day forecast, hourly forecast, and map. I like the amount of information it provides, especially things like dew point and sunrise and sunset times. The problem with the app, and it is a MAJOR problem, is that the hourly and daily forecasts contradict each other. The forecast for the day will predict a 50% chance of storms, but the hourly forecast shows 0 to 30% chance of storms each hour. This renders the app unreliable.
Great app!
by crisvilla2019 on 2019/07/12 12:40
True as some reviewers have said little slow to load sometimes but overall like the app! Shows me weather at home and where my husband drives to.
I’d give it a 5 but....

Best visuals of all weather apps
by LisaKS on 2019/07/12 02:55
I chose Weather Bug mainly because I can quickly and easily read the information - it isn’t tiny and hard to see like other apps. I love everything about it except the info is often contradictory between screens. And it also doesn’t match the local TV station app’s info either. Sometimes I compare the two to see it they match, and they don’t always match. So I don’t know who to believe.
Info I want
by Giruffuss on 2019/07/12 01:10
Weather Bug tells the usual weather and adds info about how close lightening strikes are to me.
Would love to give it 5 stars but......
by Minxi615 on 2019/07/12 00:33
I have used Weather Bug for many years on many different devices. The FIRST TIME I purchased WB as soon as I realized I liked it some years ago & enjoyed not having ads and some of the customization options I got by purchasing the app. Fast forward a couple years and a new device. I had issues getting the purchased one on the new device; CS said they could see my account but showed no record of my purchase. SO, I purchased WB again. Fast forward a couple years and a new device: Again, transfer issues..... I decided purchasing twice was enough. Since then I have just dealt with the free app.
Satisfied
by Charlie Hooah on 2019/07/11 23:03

Weather WASTE
by GameOn1 on 2019/07/11 22:38
I have used weather bug for a couple of years now. And it used to be really good. Now they just want money and its even more apparent now. Because when you open the app all you see is advertisements NO WEATHER, unless you want to dig trough the app to find where they put it. All they want is you to pay a RIDICULOUS $20 for a so called elite version. Total and complete GREED, DONT WASTE TOUR TIME!!!!

Terribly slow and contradicting
by King of Rancho Cucamonga on 2018/07/09 22:47
It’s horribly slow to load any new info without jumping through hoops. Start switching cities, close out of it completely to name a couple and the radar is spotty at best. What I mean is huge chunks of the radar image are missing, conveniently it’s usually missing around the area I’m trying to look at. Does me no good if the nearest radar image is 200 miles away. Also the hourly and the 10 day rarely if ever jive. 10 day forecast may say %80 chance of storms this afternoon, the hourly will say sunny the whole time with %0 chance of rain and I suppose I could check the radar but oh wait, it doesn’t work. This app used to be absolutely perfect when I first got it in 2012 but now it’s just a headache. It’d be great if you fixed it but it is free so I guess I shouldn’t complain too much. So a few days later they claimed to have looked into the issue and corrected it. I’m telling you I wish everyone worked like these guys! It’s fixed and works flawlessly! The level of support and attention they paid to my measly whining is outstanding. You guys are top notch, thank you. I work outside so having a good weather app is important and you guys are spot on
All weather apps seem to be inaccurate
by xlemnrty on 2018/12/03 15:05
Is it me, or are others experiencing the same issues of inaccurate, not up-to-date weather no matter what app? It seems they all use the same local stations that must be very delayed in their updates to the various apps. Seriously ALWAYS off several degrees, and as for precipitation percentages, they’re so useless, I have begun to laugh at my own gullibility. A couple of mornings ago was so typical ... I wanted to take a bike ride and began looking at the forecast the prior evening showing ZERO chance of rain the next morning. Re-checked the next morning, and same ZERO % chance so I got dressed for my ride, pumped my tires, raised the garage door, when it began to rain ALL DAY. I re-checked the forecast an hour or so later, and the entire hourly forecast had changed. THE KICKER is that this same app has the audacity to provide a TEN DAY forecast 🤣🤣🤣. And almost as bad ... my gullibility to keep checking 🤔🤔🤔. Anyway, I think I’ll go back to the “stick my head out the door” method ... it’s more predictable. I get a bit of a chuckle when folks compare the presentation of info in reviews ... who cares about presentation if the data is unusable. Again ... this doesn’t seem to be a Weatherbug only issue as I have had the same experience with all four of the apps I’ve tried. It seems that the OLD-fashioned TV weather reports are more accurate the night before than the purported “real-time” weather apps.
My favorite weather app is screwed up
by TexGreenEyes on 2019/06/28 17:56
This has been my go-to weather app for years. It gets used multiple times a day, and has never given a hint of trouble. Scratch the glowing praises now because with this last update the app crashes on start-up. I followed the developer’s advice found in a response to someone else’s recent complaint and deleted/re-downloaded the app. Bad idea. The app started up once, and then promptly stopped working again, and I lost all my settings for no good reason. Come on, guys. Don’t let such a good app cause this much frustration. The second star I’m giving is based on my hope that you’ll get this fixed ASAP. Update: Shortly after I posted my review the app started working as expected. Then this morning, just 3 days later, it’s back to crashing at startup. I do not want to uninstall/reinstall again, as I did that before you suggested it in response to my original review. It didn’t work then. I hope this usually excellent app is mended soon. Update #2: It’s been about a week since my first update, and while the app is working better, it still occasionally crashes at startup. This happens about once every other day. I don’t know if it’s related, but the problem seems to occur when I first open the app and I’m not on wifi. Anyway, I’ve updated my stars accordingly.
Build me up, just to break me down
by The Mr's Mrs. on 2018/07/10 10:31
Downloaded WeatherBug app about 2 weeks ago and really liked it and then... the update. Initially, I was quite impressed and pleased with the push notification weather alerts for severe weather. I especially liked that the weather alerts would push to my phone at least 15 minutes before any of my other - even local - weather apps and that they even had a “dangerous storm warning” notification, which was correct each time I received it. The widget worked wonderfully as well and was probably my second favorite feature. Enter the update. Dun dun DUUUNNNN! It completely killed everything I enjoyed and appreciated about the app. I’ve not received a single push notification since nor has the widget been functional despite deleting the app and all its data from both my phone and AppStore account. The widget simply asks that I open the app and agree to TOU and PP, which is not even an option. You agree to the TOU upon initial launch of the app but that does not give the widget functionality. I also dislike that I am unable to remove the township that the app has deemed my home/current location and set it to the correct area as it is mistakenly locating me in another town. Sadly and disappointedly I am deleting the app permanently unless the next version, which seem to be released monthly, remedies these debilitating flaws and restores the app to its previous performance and reliability.
love this app!!
by maddflower on 2019/06/17 03:13
on memorial day, ohio had a really scary tornado outbreak and i'm lucky enough to have survived through it without being hit by one. i came across this app with my anxiety getting the better of me due to an extreme fear of tornadoes, but i can confidently say i'm happy i found it! it is extremely useful and very interesting to look on the radar. i love the alerts that it provides and they are VERY helpful. thanks for this great app! in light of these tornadoes in ohio, though, i really wish that i could be more reliable on this app with where the tornadoes are and if they have hit where i live. i'm on vacation without my family that lives there and last night when more hit was scary because i did not have a reliable source to where the tornadoes actually were and if my family was safe. i'm very happy with this app and i suppose it can't cover everything but it would have been really helpful to be able to track those tornadoes while it was happening! thank you anyways for such an amazing app, it has been really helpful and fun to mess around with. :)
Used to be better
by brad34785 on 2018/02/22 15:27
When I first downloaded this app several years ago it used to load information much faster, and more consistently. Now, many years and updates later, it rarely even loads any information when i am connected to wifi. The app will open and load the temperature on the home (default) screen when connected to wifi, but I have to turn off the wifi on my iphone, ensure I am connected to my cellular network, and switch between the “now”, “hourly”, and “10 Day” tabs in order to get the app to load information. It started doing this over a year ago. Initially I thought my Wi-Fi connection at home was just poor, but it turns out that I have the same problem connected to any Wi-Fi signal. I have also had this problem with 2 separate iphones. I occasionally delete the app and redownload it just to see if the problem may be a fluke, but I always end up with the same problem. This used to be my favorite weather app, but now I am exploring other apps because of my frustration with this issue. I still love the weather bug app, and in my opinion it has the very best radar maps of any app available. I just hate having to go through so many steps in order to get this app to function the way it is intended to. Please fix this!!!!!
Decent App
by evan.cooperman on 2018/09/27 15:33
Weatherbug is a decent app and I can’t decide whether to give it 3 or 4 stars. I guess I’ll go with 4 because I have only 1 major complaint, though it does bother the heck out of me. I use Weatherbug for my weather most of the time, but one of the biggest complaints I have is that it does not update throughout the day. For example if the forecast is 75 degrees and sunny but it’s only 60 degrees and is raining, the app accurately displays the temperature and weather as of this moment, but the forecast doesn’t update to take the changes into account. If it’s 5:59pm and it’s 60 degrees and raining, obviously at 6:00pm it’s not going to be 75 degrees and sunny! If the app would update with new data based on unforeseen weather patterns I would be much happier with it and would probably update to 5 stars. That, and if somehow they could figure out how to forecast more accurately! I know that is a bigger and more global problem to solve, and is not limited to this app, but here in Chicago the forecast is maybe correct (or close to correct) 50% of the time. I feel like it’s gotten worse over the years, but that’s probably just because our weather has gotten more erratic and is harder to predict now than it used to be.
Guys... this was ridiculous.
by Beansy Baby on 2018/09/17 22:24
As many of you know, and clearly this app was aware, there was a hurricane that affected the Carolinas etc. Once upon a time I loved this app, but since this hurricane hit, I cannot believe how repetitive and unhelpful this app was. I got CONSTANT notifications about extended hurricane statements, flash flood statements, and tornado statements. Those are all well and good THE FIRST TIME THEY ARE ISSUED. I had 15+ notifications while trying to conserve phone battery, I eventually turned them off. They also arrived 10+ mins later than TWC (which could be service provider related but not the point of this rant). What would have been most helpful Weatherbug, would have been actual storm updates. We had no power, no radio (our own fault) and couldn’t load a single app to see the radar, but thank god notifications came through.... giving us location/wind speed/ANYTHING useful would have been better. Don’t get rid of the statement updates completely.. maybe just start them as indefinite when there is a hurricane present. LASTLY, the notification that said: “Florence made landfall Friday in North Carolina! Watch the latest footage of the storm on weatherbug.” FORGET YOU. I LIVED THROUGH IT, had a tree fall on the roof while I was trying to sleep I KNOW A HURRICANE CAME THROUGH THATS INSENSITIVE AND UNFREAKINGHELPFUL. I have screen shots to prove all of this.
Not accurate enough
by Reenee17 on 2018/06/17 20:08
Sad to say, one year later, it's still not accurate for Loxahatchee, Florida. It is not reliable for folks who are attending sports events in our area, when alerts for lightening are necessary. Please fix this. I used to love this app, especially for monitoring storms and proximity of lightening. Unfortunately, it no longer has a base location close to where I live. The closest area is 12 miles away, and only tells me how many miles away the lightening strikes are from THAT area instead of from where I'm standing. I do live in a rural, unincorporated area, but even on WiFi, my current pinned location is not accurate. This is not helpful in monitoring lightening while I'm standing on the soccer field or out riding my bike in MY neighborhood. What is going on 12 miles away anywhere in Florida can be drastically different where I am standing. We were in the middle of a bad electrical storm right over us, and this app was telling me closest strike from another location 12 miles away and showed no immediate alerts. Very bummed. Others should be aware that some areas really are not covered, but doppler can at least give you an idea if a storm is moving towards or away from you. But any news channel doppler can also show you that.
Usually better than NWS or TWC apps
by TeriMelissa on 2018/06/24 19:07
I’ve been using the Bug since I got my very first iPhone. It zeroes in on my exact weather happening in the moment. There are many pinging spots near almost anywhere to give a good triangulation for my personal weather conditions within a few miles. The radar is easy to understand and accurate. The future casts are as accurate as I’ve ever seen ...and much better than even my 3 local meteorologists on tv. Even as far out as the 10 day forecast I know I can be ready for what may be coming. Where I live the weather is unpredictable moment to moment but Weatherbug stays on top of the quick changes. I love the storm tracker showing dangerous situations like nearby lighting and all severe weather threats. The UV rating, pollen counts and air quality reports are important to me as I am really fair, have severe allergies and asthma. The heads up to make sure I have the proper preventative meds/sunscreen make my outside time much more enjoyable. WeatherBug is an app I use daily; sometimes several times a day. I highly recommend it to everyone!

I used WeatherBug on my desktop & work computers years ago & always enjoyed all the info it provided. Now, there’s even more info available & this app is very accurate in our rural location. My 2nd Service Dog has terrible allergies & I used to get pollen report emails thru this program, now I just check on the app. One improvement that I would love to see is the display of more info re: the amazing video clips. There are times when I’m completely unable to tell anything about a clip - where & when did this take place? Often, the brief captions shown as we pick out what video to watch, are clipped short so we don’t even know where this event takes place nor when. And to those generous souls providing the videos: I, for one, appreciate hearing your narrative during the clips. I don’t like to hear about last night’s party or what you’re serving for dinner, but I greatly appreciate hearing where you are filming & a date & any other relevant info about the video: thanks for sharing them with us!!
Very useful and easy to use
by MoppyDrunk.jr on 2019/06/22 12:50
Weatherbug is great! I feel like every possible weather related issue is addressed in this powerful little app. Information is easy to find, the home screen makes quick work of being able to check multiple weather related items. Noteable features: - Easy to check the weather in different locations. This is very useful if you are a frequent traveler. We add the location to which we are traveling and can easily keep an eye on the weather before we go. - Lightning Information. We have a pool and we check this frequently. It is right there at the push of a button, very quick and easy. - Detailed breakdown of the forecast. You are able to check the weather for the entire day, hourly, and even get a detailed rundown of the weather. - Easy access to weather alerts. This information is also easily accessible at just the push of a button. We are able to quickly check for tornadoes, flash flooding, etc. - Weather related videos. These are an interesting, fun little addition to the app. Videos showing cool weather related things that people have captured and videos of current weather related disasters around the country. - Easy access to check fires around the globe. Thankfully this isn’t a feature we need to use, but it is worth noting how quickly you are able to check this information. This is my family’s “go to” weather app. We’ve been using it for years and have never felt the need to look for something else.
Accuracy of Forecasts
by goblueinA2 on 2019/02/25 16:57
Over the past 15 years I’ve used almost all popular weather apps and for this review I’ll name two others that Weatherbug beats hands down; Accuweather and The Weather Channel app. One would think since the Weather Channel has been the pioneer in forecasts for the longest duration they would put out a dependable app. All too often when I was running that app the forecasts were far off too many times. I’ve never had that issue with weatherbug. Of course hourly conditions can change but what I love about weatherbug is the truth in radar. When the radar shows a front moments away it’s always been spot on. It’s saved me many times when I’ve been out hiking or biking. It gives me plenty of notice when to get the dogs out before a storm. It has also made me a go to guy at work when others want to know the upcoming weather conditions. If you want a dependable weather app look no further.
Please fix it, the app is broken.
by ZheAwesomePenguin on 2019/04/11 15:01
So I used to use WeatherBug a lot. But I do have to admit that sometimes the weather isn’t a true match to what’s happening. Granted, I live in Michigan, where one half of your lawn can be bright and sunny and the other half can be down pouring(I’ve personally witnessed it). But that’s besides the point. The data isn’t the same as what my friend gets from our local weather station. And just recently I tried to open the app to check the weather. (Mostly to read the radar. It’s more reliable to read it yourself if there’s rain or in this case, a spontaneous blizzard in the middle of April), when I discovered that the app takes 30 seconds to buffer, then immediately crashes back to my wallpaper. But, when I looked in the running background apps thing, it was there and so I clicked on it. I don’t know if what I was seeing was real or not, but it showed the normal degrees and the little radar thing, but then it froze and crashed again. The app in it's current state is completely unusable. I grew up watching WeatherBug on the tv every day before I left for school. It’s kind of sad that I have to leave and seek out another weather app. Even with all it’s bugs, I still liked this one.
USED to be my favorite for years!
by iplayd2day on 2019/05/16 14:35
Something happened a month ago after the app update of version 5.9 was completed. After that, my Weatherbug that would slay all of the other apps that family members had, was useless to me. I would sit there and watch an empty frame of the screen, while my data wildly searched to get SOMETHING on there. Still nothing would show up for a good minute or two. One in a while, 30 seconds. It's showing RIGHT NOW that our wind is blowing here at 6mph, yet for the last several HOURS, we've had damaging winds of over 50 mph continual gusts continue to hammer our area. Same thing happened yesterday as well. 6mph vs 50??? I have furniture MOVED off of my patio outside, pillows and tiki torches blown across the yard. I could have perhaps had fair warning to bring them indoors or had them weighed down, but the main issue in question is what happened a month ago and where did my weather bug go??? Can you bring it back? I've deleted and reinstalled several times hoping it would be a success, but it's the same thing, with my poor wifi JAMMING to try to load it up. Never had an issue before. The app was da bomb. Now it's totally useless.
Update: You Removed “Intolerable Flashing Message Icon”
by Mominmidwest on 2018/09/08 16:37
REVIEW UPDATE: THANK YOU, WeatherBug! I’m a WeatherBug fan again! I gave you a week to eliminate the “insanely rapid flashing ‘you’ve got a (trash) message’ icon” before I deleted your app. You removed the annoying add in 1 day! I will again be recommending your app to any one that needs to check the weather. WB=5xStars! PS The lightning ⚡️warning map feature is extremely helpful. Life saver! (*Original Review) I really liked the Weather Bug app for a couple of years. Seemed somewhat accurate. Love the lightning warning and locator feature. But this morning when I opened the WB app, the insanely rapid flashing “you’ve got a (trash) message” icon made me want to delete the app and give it a “0” star rating. I haven’t deleted it yet. I’ll give developer a week to get rid if this new annoyance before I delete the otherwise decent app. However, I am already searching for a different weather. app
Full of bloat & bad ux
by H0317 on 2019/05/20 17:27
The app does what it is supposed to do, but it is full of ads that are prioritized on loading. If you want to quickly check the weather make sure that you wait a few seconds for it to fully load the new data; Ive popped it open to read stale data and closed it many times before I realized it was totally wrong. If you open it up, it takes a long time to load the core of the app but displays ads quickly, which is fun in a hurry. For UX, they pack too much into the buttons and its hard to parse quickly with the eyes. Furthermore, the quick menu button has several mini components that go to different pages on click. You will invariably go to the wrong page (e.g 10 day forecast vs hourly vs time now). Add this to stale data and load times, you get a mess. It is frustrating to use, you have to wait long enough when looking to feel assured the data is trusted. When you click you go to the wrong page, wait for it to load, click the right page, wait for it to load, scroll past ads, find data. Its a silly construct and I’m done with it.
Stick to your default weather app
by Maurrie on 2019/01/19 16:49
I work for my city plowing snow, cutting grass etc, so knowing the weather is apart of my job because I need to be prepared for random call ins and so on. This app sent me completely off. All day I’m checking my default weather app, and Weather Bug, and they’re saying two completely different things. My default app is saying snow starting Friday night leading into all day Saturday. Weather Bug is saying an hour of snow at 11pm then more light snow from like 4am to 10 am Saturday morning. I stay up doing some late reading cus I of course want to believe the forecast with less snow. At around 11:30pm I check Weather Bug again, and it’s completely changed to snow all night leading into snow all day Saturday. But get this. It keeps switching back and forth between barely any snow, to snow all day. Had my job called me in overnight I would’ve been completely crap out of luck, and exhausted working through early Saturday morning into Saturday evening. To sum things up, I will definitely stick to my default weather app. It’s not the fanciest, buts it’s been pretty accurate so far. Definitely more reliable than Weather Bug.
Spark lightning is my favorite part
by RitaRH5 on 2019/07/04 12:27
A few years ago, I worked at a horse boarding farm. No one lived on site. Any time we had lightning, I could watch for strikes on the property from the safety of my home. There were a few times strikes did occur, and I was able to drive out to check on the animals and fence lines, after it was safe to be outside. Even though I no longer work there, I use this feature regularly. Last fall, there was an F0 tornado that passed one block south of my house. The NWS had not issued a warning, and no sirens were turned on. I received a Tornado Warning alert from Weatherbug, and had time to get dogs, cats, and myself to the basement. Many of my neighbors had been watching the storm from their windows, with no idea they should take cover. If it had been a stronger tornado, most likely lives could have been lost. Thank you Weatherbug for keeping me safe that day.
This one is the best
by Fredtruus on 2019/04/30 14:00
I have been using weather bug for a long time. It has been my go to app for the most accurate weather. It is more up to date than all the rest. Even better than my local TV weather app that calls themselves the weather authorities. I have several U.S. states as well as my wife’s country of the Netherlands as my set locations and I always now the current and upcoming weekly forecast for all those locations. When a storm is happening, which is a lot here in Texas. I’m always on top of the situation by opening the radar map and tracking it down to almost exact accuracy. I have been able to tell my wife to the minute when the rain is going to come. Sometime all those dark red colors are a bit scary, but I think get all that much better to prepare than not know. So with this said. I think this is the weather app to use.
Inaccurate radar in Central America
by Microminimike on 2019/05/24 07:36
I’ve been dependent on this app for a long time in the USA with much success with the radar and seeing storms approaching all the time but now that I’m here in Mexico for a vacation I’m finding major huge areas of bad storms nowhere on this radar map. I’ve already gotten soaked twice because of this awful no Central America radar. Accuweather has the accurate radar for Mexico and Central America as all I did was google search “weather radar in Mexico”. Right now as I’m writing this review there is some big rain over Mexico City and surrounding cities not to mention a major tropical storm over Honduras but on this weatherbug radar map there’s not a drop of precipitation showing. Yeah you can see other parts of the world and USA but why not Mexico?! I’m seeing major heavy rain and thunder and lighting with my own eyes and I can’t believe this app has let me down so bad here in Mexico after being such a major dependable radar in the USA. Very dissatisfied and disappointed. You guys need to get on the ball and fix this or copy from accuweather or something because I’m totally about to delete this app.
My favorite weather app — by far
by Vivideaux on 2018/09/27 02:05
I have tried many weather apps in my day, but Weatherbug tops them all: Tightly linked with National Weather Service data and marvelously easy to use. My wife gets her data from the Weather Channel, which seems fine until you ask the question “Who beats the National Weather Service for meteorological accuracy?” I love the lightning strike feature, which shows strikes that, in my experience, is pretty much instantaneous. I love being able to wake up where I am, or go (or plan to go) anywhere and see a 10-day forecast that you can drill down into, so you are seeing hour-by-hour forecasts. I love the layered, animated weather maps that show me weather patterns here, over the Atlantic, or anywhere else in the world. Weatherbug has always been there for me, rock-solid, and it just seems to keep getting better.
My go to weather app
by Rob Smelik on 2018/10/26 02:12
I have had a good experience with this app and have been using it for quite a few years. I think it is important to note that this and other weather apps are only as good as the data that feeds them. I live in Northern Virginia and because it is a fairly well populated area the data feeds are updated regularly leading to fairly accurate forecasts. This may not be the same in other areas. Unlike some other reviewers I have found the information to be quite accurate. As far as what is displayed I have always found that this app provides a wide range. From daily and hourly forecasts to live radar and emergency alerts it covers pretty much everything. I pay the yearly subscription to hide the ads which I found annoying. I figure that money helps with future updates and improvements.
Gulf Coast Area
by PatLouise on 2019/05/10 02:41
Weather reports are accurate and always on point. Warnings and alerts on conditions of current, and future forecasts allows enough time to make whatever needed preparations. During Great weather forecasts, it’s always nice to watch the informative videos about what’s happening in other local, or national locations. The Weather Bug not only informs us about the weather conditions accurately, there are also interesting videos and beautiful photos of our natural environment, various birds, animals, etc. I have enjoyed the Weather Bug app for several years. Whenever a friend shows me their weather app, I tell them that Weather Bug will give you more detailed and accurate information, in any local city area or State. I recommended Weather Bug to family and friends who lives in other states. They love it too!
Update made big difference!
by dustyjean on 2019/01/10 17:56
After I downloaded the latest iOS I had a lot of trouble with WeatherBug and had been so pleased with it in the past. I was turned onto the app by a good friend of mine who is a cross country 18 wheeler driver and he has been raving about it for ages. I first downloaded it about three or four years ago. After having this recent difficulty with the app - long load time and inability to get hourly forecast etc. - I went ahead and deleted it and reinstalled from the App Store. It made a huge difference!! And now I am back to using it on a routine basis and loving it - has been very accurate. I live well outside of Austin Texas in a small town and it uses local weather information from local reporting stations. Keep up the great work and I have referred this app to many many people and will continue to do so!!
Reliable and Accurate Weather App
by TexasChuy on 2018/02/10 14:05
The Weather Bug App is reliable, accurate and above all easy to use! It has several easy to find functions to see the weather in your area with accuracy because it uses several different weather stations in your city not just one downtown. My family all have it installed to use when planning their school or work day and looking ahead at the week. We also use it when going out of town. Again it has proven itself a awesome buy because even in other cities away from home the Weather Bug app has given us accurate and an easy to use tool to plan what clothes to pack for that trip. Every time it has been has spot on! I appreciate the effort and staff that keep this app updated and nearly ad free. A definite great app to have.
Informative, BUT -
by DJ at East Coast, USA on 2018/03/21 02:59
Have been using WeatherBug a while and have liked the features. Seems more accurate for me than other reviewers probably as I live near coast which has good weather networks due to hurricanes (even though somewhat away the city). BUT recent updates have taken away ability to reorganize features on the Now page by their needed priority. It’s driving me NUTS. Please, Please fix this as certain weather features are more urgently needed than others (while you’re adding more) & trying to scroll through all that isn’t helpful when you’re half asleep or in a hurry after a notification. Thankfully I had already done some reprioritizing before we lost the ability. Otherwise a more informative app than the apple-included TWC iPhone app - I use this daily.
Not accurate...
by Ibanezgrindd on 2018/08/10 07:02
We hardly get any rain here in Phoenix, and when it finally rains, the current weather shows as partly cloudy. We’ll have wind, lightning, thunder.. etc etc and it’s partly cloudy according to weatherbug. When its very very hot here (a picture of a sun with cactus) it shows 0% chance of rain in the valley of the sun for the week to come so I expect to see very hot as the forecast day in and day out. Don’t need weatherbug for that! Strangely one of those 0% precipitation days the clouds started to build heavily and then weatherbug changed its mind and changed the day’s forecast to chance of storms hours before it rained. I downloaded accuweather to do some comparisons in the week to follow. Accuweather had actual percentages for each day for that week. Weather bug had 0% the whole week. It rained twice that week. The 2 days it rained, weatherbug changed it mind that it was going to rain when there was a a visual storm in the sky. But I thought it was 0%? Terrible predictions and un-accurate information. I’ll stick with accuweatherfrom now on
My New Favorite Weather App
by wasteoftym on 2017/09/29 23:59
I had been using Wunderground for the past few years, but when we experienced a recent heatwave with high humidity out here in SoCal I was checking the humidity levels daily on Wunderground and it was giving me numbers that were way off. My body can tell the difference between high humidity and low, and I was feeling it. Yet Wunderground was reporting the humidity at levels like 36%. Um....no way! This kept being consistently wrong for weeks, so I downloaded a couple new apps to try instead. Weather Bug was the best of the bunch. I like the way it's laid out and how it reads on my screen. I find it to be consistently accurate. I'd even buy a paid version to get rid of the ads. They are only mildly annoying, but I prefer my apps that I use a lot to be ad-free. Give it a try!
Getting better everyday
by To bad4me. on 2019/03/10 12:29
I switched to Weather Bug about a year ago and the more I use it the better I like it. Because things are presented a little differently it took me a while to find everything but it has more usable features than the other app I was using. My wife still has the other app and we compare notes all the time. Weather Bug is accurate more of the time than the other major app in my opinion. I do not like the sponsored stories on either app but I could not give weather bug 5 stars because on the rare occasion that I try to view one, they generally sit there and spin or say it is not available at this time. This is a rare use for me so it is not a big problem but thought I should mention it for complete honesty.
Love this weather app but...
by Charmed824 on 2018/10/01 15:02
This has been my “go to” app for weather for years. I love the hourly information, especially the hourly dew point info. However, over the last month or so, the app freezes up, takes forever to refresh or load when clicking between the different options (hourly, 10 day, etc). I hope these glitches will be fixed! UPDATE: This app still doesn’t seem as accurate. It will say one thing for the current conditions, but the hourly condition shows something completely different. And the dew point is never accurate. Currently it says the dew point is 39 but my local Tv station weather app shows the dew point is 51. Plus, I don’t like how I have to scroll all the way down to view the current observations..that info should be right there when you open the app so it’s quick and easy.
Ok, but often just plain wrong
by Bogiebogs on 2018/08/07 11:29
I got this app after trying a bunch of weather apps. It is very intuitive and has the basics of what I want in a weather app. I know the current conditions, have access to hourly forecasts, 10 day forecasts, and maps. The radar is great and is easily accessible. If I want more info, I just scroll down and there it is. My main problem is that the prediction of future weather is often just wrong. For instance, the ten day forecast has for each day a high temperature below 90 and a 50+ percent chance of rain. But when each day actually comes, magically the high is in the mid 90s and the rain chances are zero. Even today was a high of 88 yesterday and today it’s 93. Fifty percent chance of rain for today in yesterday’s forecast, today—nothing. How can it be wrong so often? I like this app for the radar, but for anything other than a few hours out, it’s kinda useless.
Can't arrange NOW page
by montanabobw on 2018/03/31 12:46
My favorite weather app. The info provided is most often more accurate than other apps. I would give the app 5 stars except for: 1) Prior versions allowed the various segments of the NOW page (wind, lightning, UV, etc.) to be rearranged to the user's liking. That ability has unfortunately disappeared. Like another user below, I don't want the new air quality segment at the top of the list. It's good info but it's just not as important to me as other info. In fact, I'd probably put it at or near the end of the list. 2) I've never understood the "flopping around" (various info blinking) that occurs when the app is started. Eventually, after a few seconds, it settles down and stops flopping. It's done this for me for many many versions and on a number of different devices. I write apps for a living. There should be no flopping.
Great weather app
by Pzamz on 2017/12/30 21:15
Got tired of the weather channel app getting slower and slower and taking forever to load and just scroll down the page so tried this and not only is it instantly quick, but put together with common sense. The location of the features were very well thought out and very easy and convenient to use. The pop up instructions are a brilliant idea. Love the fact that it has weather and traffic cams too, that i dont have to use other separate apps. Although it has news and videos the smart thing is they don’t load automatically, which i believe keeps the app fast. You have the option to start a video and that’s the smart way to do it. What’s killing the weather channel app is they don’t give you a choice and the videos run automatically slowing down the app to a crawl. Goodbye weather channel app, you just helped me free up a lot space too!
Much better than Weather Channel!
by DieselDude92 on 2018/10/20 03:25
I had used the Weather Channel app for years. Tolerated the click bait irrelevant videos, annoying ads and obnoxiously frequent platform changes. After the Weather Channel reporter faking the struggle to remain standing while others casually walked along in the background 😂 I finally decided I had enough of the Weather Channel and gave in to my wife’s suggestion to use Weather Bug. I’ll never go back! It’s basically everything on the Weather Channel app without annoying ads and irrelevant click bait videos. In fact, the videos on Weather Bug don’t require you to watch an annoying non-skippable ad before the video like Weather Channel does. The platform is easy to use and works great. Thanks Weather Bug!
Best weather app available
by Andriod3508 on 2017/12/28 03:20
Weather bug has been the most accurate weather app I have ever had and still is. The representation of the storm has been so accurate that I have always been able to see exactly when a storm starts and when it ends. It gives the most information in the radar picture of any other app. My only complaint is that there is not a pay version of this app. I would pay for it no problem because I hate the adds. Which get worse over time the longer I own this app. It is well worth paying for this since it is the best weather app ( and I have tried a lot and have paid for a few). My only complaint is there is not a paid version. Hate the comerciales . This app is well worth paying for.
Used to be the best weather app out there.
by Lovinbosco on 2018/06/27 20:35
This app is still the one that's the most dependable as well as accurate. There are those times during the year especially in the spring, that we count on their radar, above others, to track super cells and the like because of where we live. I depend on Weather Bug because their radar is updated quicker than the others. This is the weather app I check out everyday, sometimes many times a day when there’s bad weather, I'm glad to have it. I also like that we have our own local pictures now that we can look at as well as around the world. I do wish they would make it so we could comment on them though. There are some outstanding pictures in the gallery that I would love to compliment the photographers on. Low mark is because the took out satellite radar. That helped on so many levels. Thanks
Everything in one place
by Sweaterbug on 2019/04/17 14:03
UPDATE: the new version that auto updated today crashes so I can’t access all the information I love getting. 😕 2nd UPDATE: WeatherBug made the big fix in less than 12 hours. Happy customer again. The AD at my school showed me Weather Bug and the "spark" feature which shows lightning strikes in the local area. I coach, too, so I got it to be able to decide on holding or canceling practice. It fairly automatically switches my location to stay with me and my local conditions in an easy way, and you have access to local radar on the opening screen that is more current than other apps I've tried. The daily and 10 day forecasts are bare bones but useful. It packs a lot into a small space and presents it well.
Don’t support this app and it’s political hate ads!
by cindy m77 on 2018/01/02 13:23
I have used this app for a number of years. I recently signed on and was exposed to extreme right-wing hate ads. I will not support an app that encourages divisiveness and hate. They should choose their adds more wisely. Don’t download it. Update: After posting this, I was contacted by a representative from the company who devoted a great deal of his time researching this. Apparently ads are regional and may not be screened to prevent this type of political ad. He searched for this and other similar ads and reported that the company was going to remove them. I hope so. Kudos to Weatherbug for their prompt and positive response. I am changing my ratings from one star to three for their effort to prevent this but they should certainly screen all their ads.
Appreciated
by Helonie Balony on 2018/09/24 13:34
Really do appreciate knowing what our weather is right up to our home! For example, yesterday which was a Sunday, I was able to ascertain whether we could be able to go to church or not. We are both handicapped, and even though I can still drive, it is difficult to take my husband as he is in a wheelchair. It was pouring rain at 8:30 A.M. we were to leave at 9:15. Your Weather bug enabled me to see that the rain had stopped and we were able to go to church. I am amazed at the accuracy of your weather reports . The other reason for our appreciation is that during a storm I can get the weather on my I Pad when the weather messes up our ability to get weather from our TV Thank you again and again!
Advertisements, Advertisements and More Advertisements
by Traxel on 2018/07/21 19:57
I PURCHASED WeatherBug so I could skip the ads included in the free version. They have chosen to ignore the purchases made by who knows how many people and insult the buyer be placing LARGE and annoying ADVERTISEMENTS in the current version. In addition, the application displays a RED number 1 on the home screen of my iPad but when I launch the app there are NO Weather Alerts. Is this to ensure that more of the unwanted ads are seen? Living in a part of the country where weather alerts are frequent I need an app that is reliable. Don't waste your money or time with this app. Find an application that will provide you valid weather alerts and does not include large advertisements. So far I am using AccuWeather and MyRadarPro.
Great if you like ads that trick you...
by Cainusrising on 2018/09/16 17:34
I used to love this app, but 2 minutes ago I finally had enough. I live in Western North Carolina and I am watching Hurricane Flo very closely. I went on my Weatherbug App to check out the latest news and, WHAT’S THIS?!?! I had a flashing message symbol, as if I might need to know something right away. Nope! It was just yet another tricky ad Weatherbug had allowed that took me to another page where I was asked to spend money on a product I didn’t want. I’m through. Throwing in the towel. You win advertisers. Good luck in your future endeavors. Weatherbug creators, I hope you make tons of money off of these sorts of unscrupulous ads. I understand the need to have them, but not during a storm where (so far) 14 people have died and people need to get up to date info. Having ads is fine, but not like this. It’s not like there aren’t other weather apps out there that don’t have these types of ads. I’ll keep looking and find one that doesn’t allow manipulative ads.
New version 5.9.1 has not fixed the bugs.
by Disgust by your greed on 2019/05/09 18:02
The new version is not fixed the bugs in this app. The radar still runs at lightning fast speed after you run through the Radar loop three or four times. Also there is a new bug now when you zoom out on the radar. The radar goes black because it’s failing to refresh as you back out on the radar. Takes 10 to 15 seconds for the radar map fills in. This is not due to my connection. I have superfast Internet and a very strong Wi-Fi signal.I’ve had this app for many years and there’s always been a bug of some kind. I’ve sent feedback to the developers and I’ve never gotten a response nor have they addressed the problem. also they have an updated the satellite map on the radar for a very long time because areas on the map that I personally know of have shown no change from years ago. I’m just gonna find a better weather app.
Glitches
by LewisLady on 2018/09/04 21:02
WeatherBug used to be my favorite weather app. I especially liked the spark lightning feature that lets you see where lightning strikes have happened. That’s a key safety help! But in the last month or two, it has started being very unreliable. In the middle of a lightning storm, sometimes it will say “stay alert,“ and then if you refresh it it says “Seek shelter immediately,” and the map shows that a lightning strike has happened 15 minutes ago just a couple miles from your house. And what’s much worse, is that now there are annoying ads on it that flash repeatedly at you, as though an urgent message has come through from a friend. I did not fall for it, but it is highly annoying, and deceptive. Weatherbug should not except those kinds of stupid annoying flash-ads!!!
Fortitude
by MC Sanders on 2018/03/17 04:55
We use this app for all family outdoor activities, fishing, snorkeling diving, Baseball, Cheer practice. Weather patterns change, get stalled or alter in one way or another. What I like most about WBug, when weather reports need to redrafted, Weatherbug has the fortitude to make immediate changes in their reports. Great info regarding weather changes in patterns & how changes will affect daily travel and commutes. Not to mention the Lighting Sensor Spark in you r menu. If your family is outdoors, this app is a MUST. Lightening detector from Wbug may save you or your family’s life some day. Recently, for safety reasons to protect all children, my Mom was heavy handed with City and County officials. Her mission was to see that every school, city or county park/bball/soccer/football field operated by city and county staff in Lee County be equipped with fully functional lightning detectors. Guess what? Mom worked tirelessly and pulling in a few favors with the behind the scene good guys, she was able to help seal a deal including county, city and school board officials with Weatherbug. A win win situation for all involved. We especially appreciated the prompt installation with jfully functional equipment. It’s a ***** rating from me. MC Fort Myers, FL
Perfect All-In-1 Weather App

If you are looking for a straight-forward weather app, that not only provides you with basic weather, but also advanced weather layer options, look no further! You also can enter in and receive weather alerts for multiple locations, receive LIGHTNING STRIKE maps, wind, rain, snow, pressure and other advanced radars / layers. By far this is one of my main go-to weather apps along with RadarScope for the most detailed look into a storm cell. For the average person looking for weather, locally or far away, you can not go wrong by having WeatherBug! I’ve had it since it was first released, and I’ve literately NEVER had one glitch or error with it! Download it... you won’t regret it.
Loved it better in Maryland

Living in Maryland and working as an athletic trainer this was my go to app. It did seem to freeze more when I really needed it to tell me where the lightning strikes and storms were occurring but it was a great supplement to our campus warning system. Great to add other US cities or even European cities when we traveled. Great for knowing what was happening in Fairbanks AK (brother) or while venturing over to Scotland (vacation with the wife). Moved overseas this past year and the app is ok for global weather. Mostly because weather is not as exciting here in Lebanon, and the Middle East does not have a 24/7 weather channel (temperate climate most of the time). Fairly accurate abroad but functions better on the east coast of the US. Love the SPARK feature! Even in Beirut it works! Most of the time. Good app for most weather inquiries. Better than what comes with the phone.
What's going on

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

I got this app because of the nearly 5-Star rating, but it doesn’t seem to be terribly accurate for my area. I’m not sure if that’s because it’s just not accurate or if it’s because the reporting station is too far away, but either way, I have other apps that are more accurate. I’m sorry that’s the case, because I love the look of this app and the type of info they present. For example, none of my other apps include air quality, which is important to me. Also, I like the detail of the 10-day forecasts (I know that 10th day is just guessing, so take it with a grain of salt, but still a nice presentation). I will continue to glance at this app, but know that it’s often off by as much as 10 degrees on the current temp and 12 hours on predicting rain or other major weather changes.
