Radar is pain in the butt
by MissionTom on 2019/08/21 15:16
The radar is very very slow and blotchy. Lots of blank areas and jerky.

I like it because it tells me whenever is will start raining

Can’t believe how dependable the forecast is here in the ADK. Tough to do with the mountains playing a part with a forecast. Best weather app I ever used

I love this app, very easy to use. When I travel it is nice to check on what the weather is going to be like at my destination.
Very slow showing radar
by old trd on 2019/08/21 10:40
The ads displaying at the bottom of the radar screen are annoying and prevents the radar from displaying in a timely manner and uses to much battery
Accuweather not so accurate now
by Varazs on 2019/08/21 04:35
I loved the app when I first downloaded it but now, the radar takes forever to load. We don’t have really high speed Internet whee we live but often Accuweather is as slow as molasses and I just give up on it and try another app. Other info not as accurate as it used to be. Disappointed.
Fraud

They tell you the upgrade come at no cost to you then charge you pure and simple fraud
Your app is not working well tonight
by wet mama on 2019/08/21 01:23
Sitting in my car waiting for rain to stop . Your app is telling me the rain will start in 20 minutes
Wish they would fix their Radar Page
by R m Caras on 2019/08/21 00:56
Click on Radar selection. The geographic map paints within 2 seconds. But then....3 seconds....5 seconds nothing....7 seconds...still nothing....10 seconds later the overlay of precipitation starts to paint. It may or may not paint completely, coming in in vague fuzzy image (before the image sharpens), it may come in different “pieces” eventually stitching together a complete image. Open up the Weather Channel app. Hit “radar”. Boom. One second later, the map WITH the imagery of weather is there, complete and in hi-definition. Accuweather, please improve your app’s Radar capability!
Fine weather

Good weather app; everything you need to know for the day.
New for me
by another and another on 2019/08/21 00:05
I’ve probably been using this app for less than a month. Generally like it. But it does not appear to show the temps from the previous day, which I would like for reference.
Been wrong for the last 3 days

by farmgirlmama729 on 2019/08/20 20:37
I love the weather accuracy and radar. I absolutely hate it will not allow me to delete a location or change setting for a location. It pops up a delete button but when I hit it it just slides the screen back over. Does the same thing trying to turn alerts on and off. I have to uninstall the app after every time I go somewhere new and reinstall.
Speed and accurate weather forecasts
by gladwinmar on 2019/08/20 20:19
Most accurate and up to date weather information.....The local television stations including the weather station have become more interested in ratings as opposed to informative predictions!!
Currently stuck in a rain storm

👎 currently stuck in a storm on my bike. Doppler showed zero rain in my area.
Always 10 degrees or more off
by JuSo2893 on 2019/08/20 13:14
This app is always 10 degrees or more off from actual temps in my area. Even though I allow location to be revealed. Accuweather is not very accurate in my opinion.
Severe weather no radar

Difficult to use.
Not full of ads like The Weather Channel...
by Man of Weather on 2019/08/20 12:12
I use AccuWeather because the weather channel app was and is continuously slowing and full of ads. TWC basically does this so you will purchase the ad free version and it’s annoyingly frustrating that you just cant check a few things out without the thought of...hi this is TWC, we want your money and if you don’t give it to us we will slow your use of our app/website. Accuweather works great and doesn’t pop up ads that are “in your face” and slow the phone....the computer version of TWC is even worse. Ads are fine but TWC squeezes every pixel of the screen with ads and it’s just stupid!
Up to date
by lkatdancer on 2019/08/20 11:47
Current weather presented in a pleasing format.
Hurricane tracking
by Richa911 on 2019/08/20 10:32
Awesome weather app but it needs a live interactive hurricane tracking map. I live along the coast of Georgia and hurricanes tracking is extremely important. This app needs improvement in hurricane tracking. Maybe an overlay on the live radar.
Could be much better with bug fixes
by UniqueAppStoreNickname on 2019/08/20 07:37
There’s about a million weather apps out there but I still use this one. I like that it’s free and the minutecast is very accurate. However, it’s not unusual for it to drain my battery by 20% after using it for 10 minutes. My battery isn’t what it used to be, but no other app on my phone does this. Also, it seems radar only loads around 50% of the time, which is very frustrating.

Horrible predictions
by Ryan9588h on 2019/08/19 18:31
Horrible predictions, multiple times it’s completely off. If there is a cloud in the sky, it’ll be 47% or 51% chance of rain. Every other app is far superior,
Great app

The app it’s self is good.... but the data is awful there has been two straight days were there is a 0% chance of Rain and a thunderstorm comes up and it pours and actually starts hailing... the storm lasted for a total of about 2-4 hours. You can’t do your job and it is very annoying!

Precipitation forecasting is wrong
by action_hank on 2019/08/18 23:12
Time and again this app is wrong about rain. As I write this it’s pouring outside and the app claims it is partly sunny with no rain for another 45 mins or so. Even radar data is behind (and agrees with the app). I’ve had enough and I’m switching to something else with better data. And less UI clutter.

Worst weather app

The only thing that I wish it had, was a map showing fronts with the traditional circular symbols showing wind speeds and direction as attached flags. Can’t have it all but they come very close. Magnificent weather app!
Upgrade horrible please go back
by 12wizard on 2019/08/18 15:06
New upgrade is horrible. Very cumbersome and time consuming to navigate. Hard to see what you want. Please go back to an easier to navigate layout. Though I probably won't see it as I will be deleting this app because it is useless to me.
Poor rain forecasting
by qlpazlmq on 2019/08/18 14:50
On August 17 Accuweather forecasted it would rain in Orland Park, twice in the morning and once in the afternoon, then again twice overnight going into August 18. It rained slightly only during the afternoon of August 17, and only for a brief period of time. This happens repeatedly with their rain forecast and it cannot be relied on. Weather Bug and Weather Underground are much more reliable. I’m deleting the Accuweather app from my phone.

by mOctothorpe on 2019/08/18 09:37
and I can’t get back to sleep. This lousy app dinged me 3 times 2 hours ago for a severe storm that never materialized. Then an hour later it woke me again to tell me about a heat advisory that won’t take effect until 1:00 in the afternoon!
Accuracy
by Richard7679 on 2019/08/18 05:11
The radar is not very useful as it doesn’t provide real-time feed. Also, forecast and current conditions aren’t consistent 50% of the time. Not worth the money.
Usually accurate weather wise, but...
by WISCO122 on 2019/08/18 01:59
Humidity in Wisconsin 67% the app shows 9%. Dew Point 64 degrees F app shows 11 degrees F.
Video ads too intrusive
by Cork2u on 2019/08/17 23:40
They use pop up video ads. Ruins the experience. It’s not just a little boa to the side, it completely removes the information you’re looking at. Every time one comes up now, I immediately close the app and go to the Weather dot com app.
Love it!!

by Dave6372552 on 2019/08/17 17:31
This use to be my go-to app for up to date weather forecast. Not sure what happen, but the radar never seems to work now. All the apps prediction are basically the same because they all get it from only a few sources. It’s the radar that sets them apart and the functions, right! I still prefer the setup and look of this app. I like the layout and information provided. Just wish the map/radar was improved.

When I look at radar, I have to play it several times before it will show all the rain
Inaccurate location data
by John in EHT on 2019/08/17 11:56
I love the format and the quality of forecasting but for some reason the app sends me the weather report for a few towns over ( Estell Manor, NJ instead of Egg Harbor Township). The reports are similar but there are subtle differences. Because it misreads my gps dats it constantly defaults to the wrong report. Would be 5 star if not for that glitch.
It’s OK
by Tony8246843 on 2019/08/17 10:27
Really can’t stand when I have to watch a commercial for every single video that I want to watch. Especially when the video doesn’t even play after the commercial!
Location is inaccurate
by Anscera on 2019/08/17 07:57
This app is good. However the location is never accurate. It is always off by 6 miles. I constantly have to go in and change it to where I actually am. If that was at all improved this app would be great.

Living in a bowl
by Just Pat 123 on 2019/08/16 23:17
Living in the greater Denver area we live in a bowl. I understand how that makes predicting the weather even harder than a plane area The weather forecast for us is vague and in most cases incorrect. You need a better model to predict a more realistic weather pattern for the are.

Accuweather app is a Swiss Army knife of prognostication
by Accu-Doug on 2019/08/16 16:43
This is one of the best apps out there, weather or otherwise. There’s no weather app for that can touch it. It’s easy to use and goes data deep. It’s precip predictions are remarkably accurate to time. If it tells you it’s gonna rain in 31 mins, don’t be cocky, be cautious, it’s likely spot on accurate. I can’t believe I waited so long to install it!
Change Units
by DotDatAzz on 2019/08/16 16:11
The app is great, and the forecasts are pretty accurate. However, I prefer to see the units in C not F. I can change the units to C in the settings, but they alway switch back F when I open the app.

Good but one problem
by King Isaac 08 on 2019/08/15 22:38
The app says that it’s thunder storming then when I look outside i see cloudy skies with no rain at all I thought it was accurate but I guess not.
Love it 😊 but room for improvements
by Toy Dogwatch on 2019/07/28 23:23
I have been using accuweather for 7 years now and one thing I noticed is it is having a crash report on the Apple Watch ⌚️ and it’s not working 100% on the Apple Watch ⌚️ and I noticed it lags during start up on my new iPhone X’r I am using iOS 12.4 and it also lags on my Apple Watch ⌚️ I don’t know if you developers are aware of this issue but if you aren’t I have been dealing with this issue with all the iPhones that I have had and every update that gets done seems to improve it a little bit but it doesn’t fix it all the way and I understand it’s difficult to get things right during each update and you developers definitely nailed it with adding it were this app keeps alerting you down to the very minute when severe weather is about to hit but one thing I would add in the future if you can is having it notify you when rain will be starting I know some apps have that but it would definitely be a nice feature to have with accuweather because I use accuweather a lot but I do love accuweather and I do trust it a lot more than some of my other apps that I have
This app is confised & all WET!
by Laur1220 on 2018/07/27 10:04
I switched to Accuweather app from iPhone’s standard Weather app b/c there was some sort of bug going on w/ that app & my phone—I wasn’t properly getting severe weather alerts. (We had horrible flash floods & I didn’t get a warning until it was already in the midst of the torrential rain & flooding.) So I switched to this app. Now, I do get warnings—but too many often inaccurate ones. I live in Catonsville and it told me there was a ‘coastal’ flood warnings for my town. This is ridiculous, b/c we are nowhere near the coast! Right now, I woke up this morning to yet another torrential rain storm—we’ve had them all week. This morning’s had not been predicted last night. I turned on my phone to look at the app to check it’s weather report. The main screen showed only “some clouds” & the precipitation monitor showed 0%. The radar showed no rainstorm. And the hourly also only showed partial clouds. Yet, the rain gauge said “rain ending in 17 minutes”! Clearly the tail isn’t talking to the head! What a totally confusing disconnect! Totally out of touch with reality of the weather here . Only after about 25 minutes later, as the storm was mostly subsiding, did it finally show on the main screen that a thunderstorm was going on. But the hourly still wasn’t updated. Needless to say, I can’t vouch for the accuracy of the “Accu”Weather app!
So so app
by Pmotz on 2018/02/20 14:30
I was a regular user of Storm, but they deleted the ad-free option so I tried AccuWeather. Nope, It’s worse. The forecast, regardless of the name is no better than any other weather forecast, which is to say poor. A few observations: There is no option that I’ve found for displaying wind speed. The cloud cover is truly odd, lighter cloud cover has darker opacity and heavier cloud cover is lighter opacity, huh? That’s the opposite of what it should be. I’ve got the Premium version and it offers a 25 day forecast, well isn’t that special. The weather forecasters have trouble with tomorrows weather and they think they can forecast 25 days out? For entertainment purposes only. I get FAR too many severe weather notifications, many more than I get in Storm. Most of them are repeats, if a winter weather advisory is posted at 9:00 AM I get a notification right away, if I turn the screen off I will find another notification the next time I open it, for the same original advisory. Once is enough, thank you! Finally, the radar is pretty worthless, sometimes there’s nothing there when there should be, other times while playing the past couple of hours some of the “slices” are missing so the rain/snow is hurry jerky. When I check Storm’s radar it’s much better. Sorry, but this app is pretty sad.
“Wow AccuWeather”
by clenet7 on 2018/07/07 01:09
My, my, am I pleasantly surprised today. I have been looking for years for an ACCURATE weather app that has animated weather conditions and finally by a chance view of an MSN sponsored ad (ads I never look at) I find AccuWeather. I’m amazed at the accuracy, appearance and ease of use of the app. It’s not overwhelming in its delivery and yet more detailed delivery is readily at your fingertips if you so choose. Can’t wait to see how accurate the rainy season of Southern California will be reported. To make this app beyond great please, please, pleeeeeeease give us the option to add weather sounds to go with your AccuWeather forecasted conditions even at a premium. A lot of us live in places where we miss the sounds of a windy day, or a rainy day, or a lightening stormy day, or the sound of ocean waves. Just imagine the comforting sounds for many people. I added other areas that have lots of weather change patterns to my AccuWeather app list just to see the different weather conditions. I am so looking forward to hearing them as well someday soon.
Love it!
by Farmgrl7 on 2019/07/20 20:02
Within the past 2 days, including today, my state has been under severe thunderstorm and tornado warnings and watches. I myself have had to take shelter yesterday and today due to tornado touch downs. After downloading 3 weather apps and never ending alerts and checking each app radar map, alerts and forecasts and comparing...I was wrong for doubting Accuweather. I was doubting your app due to getting warnings and calls from family and friends before I had even gotten an alert from this app and several of these family/friends use this app. I already had Accuweather but I also installed Weather Bug and TWC (which I have used these apps before). While all 3 apps alerted me of severe weather, TWC alerted me with my location being in in a city 13 miles SW of me, Weather Bug alerted me with my location being in a city 16 miles East of me. I reside in a township where we don’t have tornado sirens that warn us. I was NOT happy. Again, I watched all apps in motion today. The ONLY app that loaded radar during the storm today was Accuweather. HANDS DOWN, I give this app 4.8 stars. It could use some work but I’m glad I didn’t just delete it cuz it came through!
Layout is Confusing
by audreylynn88 on 2019/03/02 11:32
I decided to download the premium version of this app after The Weather Channel had too many video advertisements. I was just tired of the ads. This app has no ads, but it is the LEAST user-friendly app I’ve ever had. The “back arrow” buttons are the same color and size as the text, and they’re placed right next to the text, so it took me a while to figure out how to go back. And every screen, the back button looks different. Sometimes you have to swipe down to get out of a screen (for example, hourly), and sometimes you have to hit the back button. And don’t even get me started on trying to toggle the hourly “compass”-style button. As soon as you touch the circle to try to drag it, the entire data does this weird zoom thing and the sensitivity is way too high for anyone’s thumb. It’s like they adjusted the mouse speed to 100- any tiny movement and you’re 4 hours past where you wanted to go, and it doesn’t land where you want it to land. Also, the circle should be on the actual hours, not on the bar graph below. You have to move the circle on the bar graph to see the hours change on top. It’s just not a very well-designed app.
Useful features, but the alerts need work
by palabrajot on 2018/10/13 02:07
Accuweather is my primary weather app- it’s very good about serving up detailed and timely information, and the alerts are especially crucial when you live in a northern plains state like I do, where floods, tornadoes and suddenly icy roads are all things which have to be accounted for. It’s because of the alerts that I have to drop a couple of stars, though- more often than not, the push notifications which Accuweather sends me are almost useless, because it will buzz my Apple Watch or my phone with a message that I have an alert, but not include the nature of the threat. This forces me to dig out my phone, open the app and find the button with the yellow exclamation point next to it. High winds? Heavier than usual rain? An addendum to an existing flood alert? A tornado in my area? All treated the same. I get fatigued from all this vigilance, which can itself be dangerous- I’m forced to treat every pop-up like it’s a potential disaster, instead of just getting the important highlights in a watch alert which I can then either dismiss or explore in greater depth. This correction would make Accuweather so much more useable for me.
Exactly what I was looking for and more
by mortemistress on 2018/05/03 09:36
I was looking for a weather app that would not only provide ACCURATE weather throughout the day and week, but also provide an allergy forecast, since I have pretty severe allergies. This app has done both of those, and done them well. It also has a small section on the Sun and Moon, and tells you the moon phase for the night. That is extremely beneficial for me, and is a feature I did not expect to find. I just saw an ad pop up to get 10 extra days of forecasts if I sign in with my Facebook, so I’m assuming I’ll have to pay for this at some point? Can’t be sure, but even if I do, I’m going to keep the app and pay for it, because it’s wonderful. It’s extremely simple and easy to use, and nice to look at (light and dark themes are also a bonus). I used to have this app a long time ago because it used to give a migraine forecast as well, since I get migraines often (don’t see that anymore, but that’s totally fine since my migraines are often related to the weather and allergies, and the app provides forecasts for both of those), and completely forgot about it. So happy I found it again! I know it’s odd to be so excited about a weather app, but trust me, when you have horrible allergies, arthritis, asthma, eczema, and migraines (yeah and I’m only 24, can’t imagine how bad I’ll be when I’m in my 70s), an app like this actually helps a decent amount so you can prepare for things a little bit.
Functional and Beautiful
by danwagner01 on 2018/05/15 18:46
I like everything about the AccuWeather app. AccuWeather has added one feature which I have never seen before. Within the iPhone app they have built a “Complication Center” which allows you to map different AccuWeather information onto the adaptable Apple Watch complication. The differing information will appear depending on which complication field you choose to add the AccuWeather complication to when customizing your Apple Watch. Basically, if the complication allows for three lines of information, in the complication center you can add three lines of detailed forecast information from within the app. But, if the complication is tiny (in one of the corners of your watch face) you can pick from a variety of secondary information to display there. When customizing the watch face all you need to do is add AccuWeather to any of the complication fields and your pre-selected weather information is displayed on one watch face. The AccuWeather team has done an incredible job designing this functional yet beautiful app.
App rating
by *4.0* on 2017/09/09 10:03
Enjoyed this App for a few years & find it much better than any other weather app. The video section could be greatly improved with the most current weather that shows time, as well as the day recorded, and more about the weather as well. Many current Worldwide weather events as well as the USA Weather. It also has repetition of the same videos after showing it the first time, when it could be a similar video from the same weather event but from a different point of view, scenery, and source. Whom ever sets these up could do a much better job just by searching the internet as so many people report their whereabouts and how the weather is affecting them in their area. It would be a better radar section if it would include a World Radar section that would be continuous to see how the weather affects each different section of the World.
This used to be great
by Chell of Aperture on 2018/08/03 18:01
I don’t write many reviews. But after relying on a good app for many years, I must say ever since the start of 2018 it has plummeted. Too many unnecessary and inaccurate warnings, and the rain is barely accurate as well anymore. The temperature is still pretty spot on but besides that theres nothing else really left to applaud. The radar is odd, and only shows for the following hour, not to mention many glitchy aspects that so many people already have pointed out. I am currently looking for another app to replace this one with because these Special Weather statements are too much now. Ever since the start of the year they are over the top. I even got a Tornado warning in my area (which is a hilly area on the east coast that gets a tornado once every few years) and then a second alert five minutes later saying “CORRECTION: Foggy conditions”.... How does one mess up that bad... Not to mention general and regular thunder storms being sent out as Special Weather statements, and then not happening at all. All in all I am just very disappointed in the changes that have happened. This app used to be great, but now it isn’t.
Loved it then, hate it now....
by TalkinTolkien on 2019/02/05 14:07
Why, oh, WHY do app developers insist on fixing what ain’t broken? It’s this weird restless need to do something- anything, and then insist it’s improvement. Don’t they read reviews? It’s the same lament that is so often seen.... the app was great UNTIL.....(fill in the blank). Random changes are not the same as progress! So this was my go-to app. Easy to read and navigate in 2 seconds flat. Now it’s a blinking, flashing, hot mess of bells and whistles, click-bait “news” and ads screaming “look HERE!!!” And they know it’s annoying, they KNOW it.... that’s why they’ll let you opt out for $4 in case you actually want to see, you know. the. weather. I’ve never met an app developer. But as a researcher I’d love to get to know one and figure out how their brains work. They must be an interesting breed to intentionally make a product annoying so you will pay more to avoid the annoyance. It would be brilliant, except.... there are other apps out there, in case you actually want to know, um, the weather (rather than a kangaroo stumbling through floodwaters, the ‘news’ they helpfully provided me this morning.) So....there’s that.
Was my go to for weather
by Auggie's Man on 2018/11/29 17:32
WAS My go-to weather app. Gives me what I need and the accuracy is often scary. Rain in 10 minutes? Yep. There it is. Wait 20 to walk the dogs. BUT honestly they say today is going to be a high of 85. It's 73 now, and in 2 minutes is supposed to be 83. It's not going to happen. Also it will say in one place no rain for two hours, the radar shows nothing, but the chance of rain it gives is high and it starts to pour. Just now saying raining for two hours, but the chance or rain during this hour? 0%. What? I check the NOAA radar, and it shows rain all around. The other apps are much closer to the forecast mark, seems to me not too hard to recalibrate if things change, others can! And be consistent in your readings. UPDATE: Was my go to, now it's inaccurate more times than not. I deleted when privacy an issue, then reloaded when fixed. Now don't use because it's wrong. Now? Says it's 100F which it's clearly not. Then I reload 3 times and it's suddenly right at 86. Too much work. I'm out.
The PREVIOUS App was Fine
by popmusiccritic on 2019/05/10 15:01
My apologies to the team who put all that work into rewriting this app. The old app was by far more convenient. It’s not that we can’t figure the new app out, it’s just that the developers made it infinitely cumbersome to retrieve data. For instance, in the old app you simply viewed the hourly list. Now you have a choice of 3 views (temp, real, precip) but all in separate views instead of them all in a single view like it used to be; and in order to scroll to see each hour, you put your thumb on a big dot which instantly shifts the time you were viewing to some floating random time. Then you slide sideways while trying to see what time of day the info is giving you. In the old app you simply saw the entire hourly list. Simple. Had putting your thumb on the dot set you immediately at the CURRENT time, but it doesn’t. The ‘cool’ Flash graphics gives a floating feeling until you find out where you are in time. Just too cumbersome. Sadly the new app REPLACES the old app automatically. Maps and videos loaded much better in the old app too. Too bad.
Update 11.7.2 Shuts Down the App when I try to load Radar
by ~StillinSaigon~ on 2018/10/12 01:12
I can’t believe you fixed bugs and added all the fancy features but not only on my iPod Touch but on my new iPad Pro, there’s no screen or offer to have Accuweather to be more precise. Now on my iPod Touch 6th Generation I cant see anything but the home screen with an area close to my home address and I do get the alerts for tornado warnings and flash flood warnings but other than that...your New Upgrade is worthless to me. After it quit working on your update 11.7.2, I did get a notification that my Apple Products had an update to a higher level than 12. Something so I downloaded it on my iPod Touch 6th Generation and my iPad Pro which was bought 2 weeks ago and it didn’t help your fancy new release. Whenever I hit Radar, because Hurricane Michael is hitting Richmond, Virginia right now, I see my home screen. At least on my iPad Pro I can see the Radar but when I go to a store or even just go out, I find it much easier to carry an iPod Touch with me rather than a iPad Pro with a 10.5” screen. At least I know I’ll remove your App from my Laptop the next time I boot it up. 🤬.
Miss the old version
by Phil Wagner on 2018/11/19 05:18
AccuWeather has long been my favorite weather channel, and when I purchased my first iPad, one of the first apps I downloaded was the AccuWeather app, which gave me a lot of good local weather information along with concise and accurate video forecasts and also featured video blogs of the weather forecasters discussing in some detail certain aspects of the global weather. For example, one blog I loved to watch had a meteorologist who discussed in much detail the different models of predicting the formation and progression of tropical storms and hurricanes as the stormy season progressed. Now all I have are graphics and videos that are often not related to the weather at all. And, since the last update, the app doesn’t seem to know where I am in that the local forecast is for an area far removed from my home, meaning I have to go in and enter and save my home address almost every night. This is becoming a great nuisance so until AccuWeather can fix this bug and bring back the video forecasts and blogs, I’m going to delete the app and use another weather app.
A must have for anyone spending time outdoors
by -Dano on 2018/12/23 16:23
When my scout troop and I were spending a week hiking the AT a few years ago, we got caught out in a freak storm. Everyone got completely soaked. Next day we happened across some folks in a nearby shelter, all dry and warm. We stopped to talk to them and told them our story of the storm. They told us about this app and how they made a run for the shelter once it the app said a storm was coming. At the next stop I downloaded the app. A day later, still on the on the trail, we were taking a much needed rest. I pulled out my phone to check the app. I told the troop, “Hey guys, the app says it’s going to start raining in less than...” and it started to rain before I could finish the sentence. One of the scouts just looked at me and said, “ now that’s scary”. I swear by this app, still use it all the time to this day. Thanks for a great app! Scoutmaster Dan
Radar
by severeweathermanmvb1 on 2019/04/05 14:51
Of all of the weather apps I’ve seen many have poor types of cloud cover precipitation imaging covered during storms for areas specific to where the storm is, they tend to generalize with like green or purple or pink or whatever color they make snow and they don’t really define with sharpness. I guess what I’m trying to say is when you see a radar map you expect to see sharpness in the image not just a general color for rain or for snow or for mixed precipitation so I would like to see more sharpness especially during storms to define what the storm is doing so much sharper images would be very useful in these apps. Please except my advice as being useful as I am a longtime member of “skywarn” and registered with the National Weather Service in Mount Holly as a weather watcher and I have been since 1996 when I was in the newspaper for it, also two of my sons are avid weather watchers as well as astronomy watchers so we kind of take all this very seriously.

Dog walking essential.
by Evie1LovesMusic on 2019/05/18 14:39
I depend on AccuWeather daily for knowing how to dress appropriately for dog walks. When it rains my dog is under the umbrella and I’m the one getting wet. So as much information on minute cast and radar is helpful. My dog doesn’t have an undercoat so choosing a t-shirt, sweater or coat is much easier with your “RealFeel” temperatures! Personally I think the “RealFeel” is more important than the actual temperature. The wind and humidity in the Midwest can feel 10 to 15 degrees different than the actual temperatures, which can mean a completely different outfit change... for me in the Summer and both of us in the winter! However, there are a few things on my wish list. Having daily rain totals for the month would be helpful in gauging if and when I need to water. Also, sunrise and sunset times are a determining factor on the safer times to do my dog walks and would be a lovely addition. No weather information is 100% accurate, but AccuWeather does a pretty good job!
Updated version works great
by Peabarter on 2018/10/07 20:37
Upgraded rating down to 3 since this app sends you many notifications that are completely irrelevant. They need to allow you to pick and choose what to be notified by. I do not live in a floodplain. I use this app all of the time unlike many apps that sit idly on my phone. I like being able to scan down the hourly forecast and see whether it was cloudy or Sunny or rainy which is gone now. It is convenient to add different areas to quickly call up the weather. I use this when vacationing and it helped plan activities around the weather conditions. They fixed the error that used to show up every time you open the App. This version is very stable and works great. It would be nice if they made it so you could pick the background color scheme. I keep waiting for apps to give more control for customization of appearance, but it just doesn't happen. It must be a system thing that is controlled from Apple. I highly recommend this weather app.
Outstanding App/ Great Features
by Barbara Morrison on 2018/03/10 19:18
I have an iPhone 8Plus. This app also worked beautifully on my iPhone 7 Plus. My husband has an iPhone 7. It works just as well on his phone. I love the Minute By Minute feature. It works! (We live on the western slopes of the Wasatch Mountains in Utah. Weather is notoriously changeable around mountains.) I use the Extended Forecast constantly. I really like the ease with which I plug in other locations to learn the weather situation where family members live or at a destination to which we are traveling. Due to family history interests, I even keep Stornoway, Scotland, on the Island of Lewis in my list of locations I might want to check on! The Allergy info is an excellent feature as well as the hour by hour temperature lay-out throughout the day. I have tried other apps. The Apple Weather App is basic and rudimentary. AccuWeather is elegantly designed - very smooth 👌
Finally! This is a great app again!
by T M H on 2017/09/08 00:26
7 Sep 2017 - I just downloaded the latest version and it's perfect again!! It's been years since it was a 5-star app. But it is now! ********* I just upgraded this from 1 to 2 stars. It is improved, but still horribly cluttered. It shouldn't take so much effort and scrolling just to find out what the high and low are for the day. ********** I just lowered this from 3 stars to 1 (and I used to give it 5)! The advertising is VERY intrusive! VERY! Especially with all the design issues (over-crowding, small font, layout). I decided that it might be worthwhile to pay to remove the ads -- that costs $2.99! I would pay 99¢ or maybe even $1.99 -- like other apps -- but $2.99? No way! Not for the cluttered piece of junk this has become. Which is sad to say about an app that I so strongly used to recommend to everyone… ********** This used to be a great app -- 5 stars from me. BUT… the newest version on the iPhone adds so much stuff but the developers didn't know where to put it all!! It's so cluttered now. The user interface is clumsy, inefficient, and less intuitive. The fonts aren't great, the colors detract rather than add, legends and labels on graphs are way too small. It's far more effort now to figure out what the forecast is for a couple evenings from now, for example. A big step backwards…
Visually Stunning plus Everything I Want
by Skye Christina on 2018/09/22 12:35
The first screen has the temperature, the real feel, the humidity, and the dew point (I am allergic to hot and humid weather so I must have the dew point at my finger tips - btw: a dew point of 70 is considered “tropical” which, if you have a hard time with ectoplasmic weather, that’s why you’re feeling so crabby). I went in search of an app after The Weather Channel made some visual changes - which are way to busy, and I had to scroll through tons of needless info to get the “feels like” and the dew point. It was visually hard to read. The screen was small and didn’t include the actual temperature. I suffered for a few weeks and finally hopped on the App Store to see what was out there. I wasn’t expecting much bc I already have Dark Sky and Weather Bug. Both apps have their place but THEN I FOUND THIS APP!! Definitely my new favorite. And it is so VISUALLY STUNNING that my husband got it right away. I open it up and on the first screen is a beautiful “live” pic of the weather WITH 1)The Temp 2)Real Feel 3)Humidity and the 4)Dew Point. There are two other pieces of information on that screen but the above are my favorite. The hourly and weekly info are easily available with one tap. Thank you AccuWeather! I’m looking forward to your artwork for Fall and Winter!
Great app, but with a huge radar limitation
by Larry.McJ on 2017/09/17 23:04
Edited - I still like this app a lot, but they really need to do something about the radar map. It is horrible! Every time I tap on radar, I get "loading, loading, loading". And I am on Verizon with five bars. What good is a Weather+ app if the radar does not work? I've tried all the top weather apps available here and while I personally think AccuWeather could be thevery best of them all, it has a major problem with the radar map. In all the other apps I've tried, you can pinch/zoom the distance so the radar map covers an area that the user wants to view (not the developer). With AccuWeather, the minimum distance you can view on the radar map covers from the top of Tennessee to the bottom (in my case), which is about 140 miles and not nearly sufficient to see when rain is starting or stopping at my location. Not sure why they did this, but if it's stopping me from purchasing the in-app Premium version, I'll bet it's stopping others as well. Fix this, AccuWeather, and I'll change my review to five stars and pay for the Platinum version.
Slow down
by SunnyorRainy on 2018/05/26 15:45
Please slow down the animation on the radar screen, or give me the option to. It is impossible to see the weather and what time it is supposed to be here before it starts over. I asked a looonnnng time ago for this. Never happened. And why is a real time weather app behind about 10 minutes? Severe weather can happen in a matter of minutes here in Tennessee. I don’t want to see the tornado heading toward me on the radar in 10 minutes when in actuality I can see it with my own eyes. That’s a little too late. Or you tell me rain is coming in 15 minutes when it’s already been raining for 10. Real time is real time, that is why I deleted Weather Bug and downloaded yours. You used to be exactly on time, not ten minutes behind. Thank you for years of great service. Can we get back to that.....Please? And thank you so much for a really great app except for a few quirks.
Disappointing. Poor UX design. Cached info too often.
by MadManM00n on 2018/11/03 14:32
The app has been a big disappointment. Just like all the other weather apps I've tried since the Weather Channel shuttered the Wunderground Storm app. The UX design is poor. Way too much sliding and scrolling needed to get to information. The hourly weather scroller is a great example of this. The scroll element, along with the daily bar graph, takes up most of the focal area of the screen, while the actual forecast details appear less prominently below it. Another annoyance with the hourly weather display is the fact that the current day and time display defaults to the far left of the screen (Tablet user expectations differ slightly from desktop users, with their initial focus being the center/top of a screen as opposed to left/top). This inevitably results in an initial confusion when first viewing and/or scrolling. Finally, being served up cached radar information does me no good when I need to know what the approaching weather is *right now*. I understand that the app's performance may be limited by the current network connection, but it seems that it would make more sense to retrieve low resolution imagery when a slow connection is detected, as opposed to showing a radar image from 18 hours ago.
I think I finally found what I was looking for!
by MMLS1514 on 2018/05/24 17:55
I have been using Storm for years but had to find a replacement since it’s no longer supported. After trying a bunch of different apps over the past few months that I didn’t like at all I was about to give up but decided to give this a try. I just downloaded it but so far I’m glad I did! It’s clean, easy to read, and allows me to quickly see all the info I need. I have a small horse farm in severe storm and tornado country so I check the weather often. Ads didn’t take up too much space compared to other apps but I went ahead and upgraded to premium because it wasn’t too much and I was so relieved to find a weather app I actually like. I will say I just downloaded it so hopefully I didn’t jump the gun writing this review. Will update if I need to.
Good, not great, and occasional glitch.
by PerryLClark on 2019/04/30 17:32
I’m using the free version of the app—and yes, there are ads, and they’re mildly annoying/obtrusive at times. But I’ll put up with ads for a decent service. Forecast data is reasonably accurate, and goes out to 15 days as reliably/accurately as any other. I’m using the iOS version of the app on an iPad Pro, iOS 12.2, all updates installed as of 30 April 2019. The interface isn’t as intuitive as it should be, and saving settings is problematic—eg, if I change units to SI (aka ‘metric system’), there’s a near-instantaneous change to deg C, km/hr, etc. But no ‘save’ button, and the next time I open the app, I’m back in Imperial units (deg F, miles, inches, etc). Switching between locations is also less intuitive than it should be; I find myself staring at the iPad for a moment, trying to recall how to switch from one locale to another. That shouldn’t happen more than once.
The Best Weather Info!!
by WhtOtter on 2019/08/09 01:26
My daughter, son, and I live in 3 different states. I’m one if those moms who has to know what’s going on and if everyone is safe. I watch their current weather as much as I do my own. When my daughter’s or son’s weather turns dangerous to life threatening, I’m on my AccuWeather comparing my reports to their local reports. AccuWeather gives me such peace of mind... giving in-depth information about the existing conditions and how the are monitored. I could write a book about this site. It would include pages of reasons why everyone should have this downloaded.. especially if they have any family or very close friends. When others were unable to get through to those in weather peril, I’m usually talking to them ‘before’ the disaster has hit. A huge THANK YOU to my #1 weather site, AccuWeather!
Revamp needed/always wrong
by FreedomFarms1978 on 2019/03/11 17:57
I’ve used this app for a long time. I’ve noticed like many others have mentioned that something is breaking down somewhere along the lines. For example, it forecasted beautiful weather on March 10 and we got it. A great day. For our area in East Tennessee it called for a beautiful week with exception of Friday. So checked later last night and the forecast is still the same. A beautiful Monday, sunny, 63 degrees and no rain. Checked this morning at 7:30am and again at 10am. Same forecast. However Since we have a farm and work outside daily I noticed things were looking different than what the forecast was saying. So at about 10:30 I checked the forecast again and it said exact same thing. However I click radar and notice a huge storm/front is about to hit. 3 hours later it’s still pouring. Only after the rain had started did the forecast ever change. Doesn’t make a lot of since to have a app and weather service that this happens very often with. Hopefully you guys get your inner workings sorted out.
I love it again
by SprMan-KalEl on 2018/10/26 01:53
October 25, 2018- It seems that developers have fixed the widget and it works with the location for the app being set to ‘While Using the App’. Thank you. October 19, 2018- Update came today. Widget STILL doesn’t work with location setting on While Using the App. What a shame! This app was always pretty accurate. Especially with the radar and predicting when rain would start and stop. Then....an update came. An update that broke the widget completely. I never had a problem with the widget. I always kept the app’s location setting on -While Using the App- and the widget worked fine. Now, the widget doesn’t work unless the location is set to Always. I don’t need it set to always. Two emails to the developer yielded nothing but pre-composed responses. Very disappointed.
So far NOT Accurate
by ldi_70 on 2019/05/26 08:31
Been using a week or so since it has good reviews but so far it has been very inaccurate in predicting rainfall. I literally have been watching it rain only to see on the app a “No precipitation for 120 minutes”...?! The other day it had our rain chances at 100% and guess what?! Not a drop fell. It’s been this way the whole time I’ve used it. It also doesn’t let me enter my location (it keeps defaulting to an area very near me so I gave up on it getting my exact location). The only good thing about it is it has a predictor for humidity levels throughout the day though I’m not sure how accurate that is since it can’t even get rainfall correct WHILE it’s raining! Update: Been using it for several months and comparing to other apps it is SUCH A JOKE!!! It should be renamed In-Accuweather as it cannot Get anything but the temperature right and I even question that sometimes! It’s been raining nonstop here and flooding but great old In-Accuweather says “No Precipitation for the next 120 minutes”....?!$&@????!!!
New Update & Interface is Excellent!
by SocratesSU on 2017/09/10 12:36
Without belaboring the details, I have tried over two dozen paid and free weather apps. I am often frustrated with the lack of useful information, cluttered displays, and intrusive ads. In fact the previous iterations of the Accuweather app were so poor, I stopped using them. But this latest update really hits the mark, in my opinion. Update: The new UI layout is fantastic. The main screen clearly summarizes all the pertinent details used most frequently. The quick access buttons/links for radar, hourly, and daily info are excellent and save time having to scroll through unwanted screens just to get the info you want. This latest update solidifies AccuWeather even more as my very favorite weather app. Highly recommended.

by Bigsargt on 2019/05/07 17:55
Since my wife and I down loaded the app, we have compared it with others. And found that it has more persistent to what is going on outside. We have put others on to accuweathers app. From where we live to family and friends that live in other states. It makes it a hole lot better when traveling. I just wish that it had something that would let us know when server weather is nearby. For like myself has a hard time hearing. And don’t look at the phone all the time. An sound alert would be great. And all of us like that it changes towns/cities when traveling. And that checking the weather at the destination where we’re going. Like from Missouri to Michigan and the town/city where we’re going to. Thank you.
Read Privacy Policy BEFORE You Agree!
by Mcgap on 2018/05/06 00:06
I downloaded AccuWeather as I have found their webpage to be useful and I have been disappointed with WU's direct offerings. There's immediately a popup for you to read the Terms & Services and Privacy Policy and then Agree to it. At least they do put that front and center--good for them. Based on what I read of the Privacy Policy, you will be asked to register and to provide personal information etc. It seemed pretty clear that you would have considerable "exposure". It also stated that they could change the policy at any time without notifying you and you would be subject to those changes even if you didn't know of them! ...that you should check back frequently to read the Privacy Policy---How likely is that for 99% of folks who already have a mess of privacy policies to contend with. Sorry, but things are dicey enough out there without going looking for trouble. It might even be a great app, but it gets 1 star for being way too nosy. I have downloaded and deleted...
Was great till the last update
by all320 on 2017/09/13 00:35
I've been using this app for years now and have loved it, but one small change in the most recent update has made it useless for me. I suffer from migraines that can be triggered by the barometric pressure. I have, after years of logging, discovered my "safe" zone. Depending on what the pressure is doing I can change certain things to reduce the chance of a migraine. After buying app after app I found this one, which had the key for me. It not only showed the barometric pressure, it showed whether it was steady, rising or falling. One little arrow made monitoring the pressure SO MUCH EASIER for me. And now that's been removed, and only the current pressure shows. No more indicator of what the pressure is doing, if anything. This was a CRUCIAL feature for me, and dozens of others I referred to this app just because of that feature. Without it it's just another useless weather app. Crossing my fingers that it comes back in another update...soon.
Those videos
by Giasb on 2019/03/25 15:58
The videos drive me crazy. They show flooding, tornadoes, dust storms...all sorts of interesting and/or terrifying things, but they NEVER tell you where it is. I want to know if the flooding is near me or a loved one. Also, during each video, a pop-up tells you what the next video is, and this pop-up covers up part of what you’re trying to watch. If you click the X on this pop-up, it pauses the video. If you restart the video...I don’t know, then something else happens. I can’t remember. At this point in the process, I am usually complaining to my husband about AccuWeather and their stupid videos. And I am not the sort of person who angers easily. Please, if you care about my marriage at all, fix the video issues. :-P There are issues with the radar, too, but I’m tired of typing. I love the other information. It really helps me plan my day, especially my outdoor exercise.
Ok so
by XzGames on 2019/02/12 02:55
Honestly I use this app a lot , but I got a lot of problems for starters, when you look at anything let’s say a snowstorms coming, the winter storm warning says 9-12 but then I see 6-10 when not lookin at the warning? That’s stupid. Second it’s annoying how when Evers there’s some tropical storm not affecting the USA it doesn’t show up on there tropical storm radar, Why? If I lived in let’s say the Philippines and there’s some sort of tropical cyclone coming towards the area, I wouldn’t know much. There many times where you guys have just been wrong from snow to anything really one time it said snow on Sunday in summer, HOW when the high is 89 degrees is it gonna snow, sometimes, there’s delays in stuff i get a notification on a watch or warning tap on it go to the app and nothing there.
Love this app
by moon sunshi9 on 2019/07/19 01:26
I think this app is 99% right on point!! We live right on the Bay & r on our yacht a lot or thinking of going somewhere on it & we use accu weather app a lot to decide if we should tk a trip or if we should postpone trip!! As a matter of fact I was just looking at next week accu W to see what day weather looks good so my brother can decide what day to come so we can pick the best day he should come . He has 1/2 drive 1 way. Anyways, we used accu weather app so we could pick a great day to lay n pool !! So thank you all for everyone that put this virtually flawless software program together and made it available to everyone!!! And also user friendly!!! Please keep this app available!!!!! It’s more than worth it to hv especially the accuracy is so perfect!!!
Good Weather App, but add humidity to quickview
by Nickname4AppReview on 2018/07/09 22:12
I’ve been struggling to find a weather app that is at least 50% accurate (ah New England weather). So far this one works quite well. I’ve gotten used to the layout and like how easy it is to switch locations. My one request would be to add Humidity and air quality to the Daily overview detail screens. Currently, you need to go hour by hour to find humidity for a day later in the week. You’ve got so many other great fields - wind gusts, precipitation, etc. It would be so awesome to see this right away as well. Especially on the coast where so many factors can contribute to a “feels like” temp much more than just humidity (wind direction, ocean temp, etc.). It would be great to know when to plan on going outside for a run when it’s not horrible air quality. ;) Thanks and keep up the great work!
Most Accurate Weather! Really
by M N S H on 2018/05/16 13:54
No other weather app gets that the weather in my neighborhood differs significantly from that of the very large town where we live. We are near the bay and winds off the bay reduce our rainfall. That said, PLEASE reconsider the new hourly format. It is much more difficult to interpret than the prior in which you saw all the hours vertically. You could easily scan up and down to see the arc of the day and could expand any hours you had more interest in. Also directly from the hours list you could move to additional days and see their hourlies. It was way more user friendly and informative. I don’t hold you to the same accuracy for future days but the arc of the weather for future (& current) days was always a great help in planning my daily responsibilities. Oh yes... and TERRIFICALLY ACCURATE, really.
The Best Weather Reporting Ever!
by BigTom65 on 2018/07/22 22:30
I think AccuWeather is the best Weather Reporting App out there right now. They definitely have the other Weather Apps beat by a long shot, and I’ve been following AccuWeather for a long time, and they have always been on top of the Weather, and getting it out to the public as fast as they can, especially when it was bad Weather, and could do a lot of damage. They are always updating their equipment to the best stuff out there on the market today. So AccuWeather, I would like to Thank You Very Much, for all that you do, to keep me, my family, and friends, and the rest of the public out there, safe with your good Reporting, from all the bad Weather out there, that wants to try and hurt us all the time. Thank You Very Much!!!
Peerless
by dcoloprisco on 2017/10/03 21:26
AccuWeather has been my “go to” meteorologists since the TV commercial with the Traffic Cop wearing a yellow slicker on a sunny day declaring “When AccuWeather says it’s going to rain it usually rains.” Apart from the quality of the forecasts, this UI is modern, pretty, functional, and multi-faceted. I am the the guy who get consulted on the weather quite often and I know that it’s due to the valuable information that I obtain from here. I love the new design, it is much more intuitive and the little touches like the depiction of the sky with animation is testament to attention to detail. I run the pro version of your app on every device I have. That said, I do take issue with the functioning ABC "non-ad' link included in the interface. Otherwise, it is just terrific!
Where is the accuracy?
by raist3001 on 2019/05/27 12:47
05/19 So I have not deleted this app yet only because of the 25 day forecast. I like to see what the weather might be like in a week or so. Otherwise for me this app is garbage. Over 2 years and they have not corrected the location issue bug they are fully aware of. Obviously the developers don’t know how to fix it. None of my other weather apps has a location issue. They locate me in the proper town while this app located me 2 towns over. 10/18 App still has a location issue. I have contacted the developers for over a Year and they know of this bug yet it has not been fixed. How can this be possible?? I never get accurate weather due to this bug! Worthless app if not accurate. 6/18 Reduced to one star. App has a location issue that the developers are aware of. Over a year and the bug has not been fixed. So I don’t get accurate weather reports. Worthless app if not accurate. I don't know how this app is being rated 4 and 5 stars. Nothing about this app is accurate. Starting with location. The app says I am located 2 towns over from where I really am. It's so frustrating. Then the app is usually always wrong when rain is to begin and end. I get predictions always telling me rain is to start, yet the sun is shining. All week it predicted rain for memorial day, yet the sun was shining. Horrible predictions. No way I can trust this app.
Fast and Accurate With Slight Interface Issues
by ckaiser306 on 2018/09/14 23:54
Fastest weather app I’ve used. It doesn’t take long to load a new location and the radar is awesome. The only problem I have is some intuitive interface issues. I’m a designer and the scroll feature hour by hour has an indicator dot to highlight what hour you’re on which is pretty nice. However, you can only scroll above this area on the temperature numbers. It’s counter intuitive and you can’t scroll in the graphical area with the sliding indicator dot. If you try, the app glitches a bit - screen jumps around. Doesn’t really make sense and for a user, and is hard to understand off the bat. It takes a minute to understand. Interfaces should be fluid and intuitive for a user. That’s my only real issue though. If that was fixed, I’d say this is your best bet for a weather app. Big time.
Safety Issue: Fix the Alert Notifications!!
by SLMUFN1 on 2018/02/23 11:21
I used to like this app better than others, but at some point the weather alerts that popped up when my phone was locked changed. It USED to summarize the actual danger. Now it just says “Special Weather Advisory.” To view the actual danger, I now have to unlock my phone, open the app, tap the Special Weather Advisory button, tap the Special Weather Statement heading, and THEN I can view the information. THIS TAKES WAY TOO LONG!! For those of us who live in tornado alleys, every millisecond counts. The actual danger should be summarized right in the alert that pops up when the phone is unlocked so I know if I need to take action. Also, when I swipe to find out more, it should take me directly to the alert information within the app. I should not have to tap on anything to view the entire message. This works for my email app. Why not Accuweather too??
The only weather app I use! One suggestion although!
by jerpal1 on 2018/02/08 03:27
Let me first say that this has been my go to weather app for several years now! One either platform this weather service has been far above the rest and it is the only one I have found to be the most accurate, hence the name... I really enjoy the time of precipitation! A suggestion that I have seen elsewhere would be of traffic cams and webcams of different locations based on the location you are viewing. Traffic webcams that are built into the radar with a setting to turn them on and off would amazing! Even webcams throughout each viewing area would be cool too! Just a thought! Overall, love the app and keep up the great work!
Not Accurate at all
by LMcPH on 2018/06/08 00:42
For the use my location, this app put down a street I’ve never heard of. When I looked up where it was it showed about a 1/2 mile from my real location. Then add to that this address 1/2 mile away was showed it pouring with rain for the next 75 minutes. However, where I was it was bone dry outside. So I manually put in my house address and it showed that it wasn’t raining out, and honestly I have no idea what else might have been wrong. I only gave this two stars because it’s not accurate. Even though I was able to find what I think is correct info on where my house is located, that doesn’t help me. I’ll always be wondering if Accuweather got it right and I shouldn’t have to double check. Additionally I wasn’t able to maneuver through this app easily like many weather apps. I actually had to watch the tutorial. Ugh! I mainly wanted this app because of pollen counts. I had googled what free weather apps had accurate pollen counts. This app was listed as one of the top, but that the con of the app was how it took a lot of memory space. So with all that said, I’m removing the app since I just wouldn’t know if it really was an Accurate weather product. And yes I do understand that weather can change in a blink of an eye.
Plague by bugs.
by bajan alwayz on 2018/09/15 12:44
This app used to be my go to app for weather. I have this app on both my iPad and iPhone. Same issues on both. Now the past few months it’s been acting strangely. I normally only write reviews when an app has started acting strangely. First when I click on the live weather it takes very long to load sometimes not loading at all, or it would go through the live weather showing no clouds no precipitation and it was lightning and thunder where I was at ( this is while I’m connected to WiFi so speed shouldn’t have been an issue) next is sometimes when I have the app open and I touch the screen to lets saw slide the temperature bar to see the temperature as the day progress it would freeze then jump as though I was swiping to close the app. Very disappointed with how things have been going with this app. I’ve already found a new one that I like.

Radar is pain in the butt

Very slow showing radar
by old trd on 2019/08/21 10:40
The ads displaying at the bottom of the radar screen are annoying and prevents the radar from displaying in a timely manner and uses to much battery
Accuweather not so accurate now
by Varazs on 2019/08/21 04:35
I loved the app when I first downloaded it but now, the radar takes forever to load. We don’t have really high speed Internet whee we live but often Accuweather is as slow as molasses and I just give up on it and try another app. Other info not as accurate as it used to be. Disappointed.

Wish they would fix their Radar Page
by R m Caras on 2019/08/21 00:56
Click on Radar selection. The geographic map paints within 2 seconds. But then....3 seconds....5 seconds nothing....7 seconds...still nothing....10 seconds later the overlay of precipitation starts to paint. It may or may not paint completely, coming in in vague fuzzy image (before the image sharpens), it may come in different “pieces” eventually stitching together a complete image. Open up the Weather Channel app. Hit “radar”. Boom. One second later, the map WITH the imagery of weather is there, complete and in hi-definition. Accuweather, please improve your app’s Radar capability!

I love the weather accuracy and radar. I absolutely hate it will not allow me to delete a location or change setting for a location. It pops up a delete button but when I hit it it just slides the screen back over. Does the same thing trying to turn alerts on and off. I have to uninstall the app after every time I go somewhere new and reinstall.

Not full of ads like The Weather Channel...
by Man of Weather on 2019/08/20 12:12
I use AccuWeather because the weather channel app was and is continuously slowing and full of ads. TWC basically does this so you will purchase the ad free version and it’s annoyingly frustrating that you just cant check a few things out without the thought of...hi this is TWC, we want your money and if you don’t give it to us we will slow your use of our app/website. Accuweather works great and doesn’t pop up ads that are “in your face” and slow the phone....the computer version of TWC is even worse. Ads are fine but TWC squeezes every pixel of the screen with ads and it’s just stupid!

Hurricane tracking
by Richa911 on 2019/08/20 10:32
Awesome weather app but it needs a live interactive hurricane tracking map. I live along the coast of Georgia and hurricanes tracking is extremely important. This app needs improvement in hurricane tracking. Maybe an overlay on the live radar.
Could be much better with bug fixes
by UniqueAppStoreNickname on 2019/08/20 07:37
There’s about a million weather apps out there but I still use this one. I like that it’s free and the minutecast is very accurate. However, it’s not unusual for it to drain my battery by 20% after using it for 10 minutes. My battery isn’t what it used to be, but no other app on my phone does this. Also, it seems radar only loads around 50% of the time, which is very frustrating.

Precipitation forecasting is wrong
by action_hank on 2019/08/18 23:12
Time and again this app is wrong about rain. As I write this it’s pouring outside and the app claims it is partly sunny with no rain for another 45 mins or so. Even radar data is behind (and agrees with the app). I’ve had enough and I’m switching to something else with better data. And less UI clutter.

Surface map

The only thing that I wish it had, was a map showing fronts with the traditional circular symbols showing wind speeds and direction as attached flags. Can’t have it all but they come very close. Magnificent weather app!
Upgrade horrible please go back
by 12wizard on 2019/08/18 15:06
New upgrade is horrible. Very cumbersome and time consuming to navigate. Hard to see what you want. Please go back to an easier to navigate layout. Though I probably won't see it as I will be deleting this app because it is useless to me.
Poor rain forecasting
by qlpazlmq on 2019/08/18 14:50
On August 17 Accuweather forecasted it would rain in Orland Park, twice in the morning and once in the afternoon, then again twice overnight going into August 18. It rained slightly only during the afternoon of August 17, and only for a brief period of time. This happens repeatedly with their rain forecast and it cannot be relied on. Weather Bug and Weather Underground are much more reliable. I’m deleting the Accuweather app from my phone.

Doesn’t come up fast enough or does not show up at all
4:30 AM ...
by mOctothorpe on 2019/08/18 09:37
and I can’t get back to sleep. This lousy app dinged me 3 times 2 hours ago for a severe storm that never materialized. Then an hour later it woke me again to tell me about a heat advisory that won’t take effect until 1:00 in the afternoon!
Accuracy
by Richard7679 on 2019/08/18 05:11
The radar is not very useful as it doesn’t provide real-time feed. Also, forecast and current conditions aren’t consistent 50% of the time. Not worth the money.
Usually accurate weather wise, but...
by WISCO122 on 2019/08/18 01:59
Humidity in Wisconsin 67% the app shows 9%. Dew Point 64 degrees F app shows 11 degrees F.
Video ads too intrusive
by Cork2u on 2019/08/17 23:40
They use pop up video ads. Ruins the experience. It’s not just a little boa to the side, it completely removes the information you’re looking at. Every time one comes up now, I immediately close the app and go to the Weather dot com app.
Love it!!

by Dave6372552 on 2019/08/17 17:31
This use to be my go-to app for up to date weather forecast. Not sure what happen, but the radar never seems to work now. All the apps prediction are basically the same because they all get it from only a few sources. It’s the radar that sets them apart and the functions, right! I still prefer the setup and look of this app. I like the layout and information provided. Just wish the map/radar was improved.

Inaccurate location data
by John in EHT on 2019/08/17 11:56
I love the format and the quality of forecasting but for some reason the app sends me the weather report for a few towns over ( Estell Manor, NJ instead of Egg Harbor Township). The reports are similar but there are subtle differences. Because it misreads my gps dats it constantly defaults to the wrong report. Would be 5 star if not for that glitch.
It’s OK

Really can’t stand when I have to watch a commercial for every single video that I want to watch. Especially when the video doesn’t even play after the commercial!
Location is inaccurate
by Anscera on 2019/08/17 07:57
This app is good. However the location is never accurate. It is always off by 6 miles. I constantly have to go in and change it to where I actually am. If that was at all improved this app would be great.

Living in a bowl
by Just Pat 123 on 2019/08/16 23:17
Living in the greater Denver area we live in a bowl. I understand how that makes predicting the weather even harder than a plane area The weather forecast for us is vague and in most cases incorrect. You need a better model to predict a more realistic weather pattern for the are.

Accuweather app is a Swiss Army knife of prognostication
by Accu-Doug on 2019/08/16 16:43
This is one of the best apps out there, weather or otherwise. There’s no weather app for that can touch it. It’s easy to use and goes data deep. It’s precip predictions are remarkably accurate to time. If it tells you it’s gonna rain in 31 mins, don’t be cocky, be cautious, it’s likely spot on accurate. I can’t believe I waited so long to install it!
Change Units
by DotDatAzz on 2019/08/16 16:11
The app is great, and the forecasts are pretty accurate. However, I prefer to see the units in C not F. I can change the units to C in the settings, but they alway switch back F when I open the app.

The app says that it’s thunder storming then when I look outside i see cloudy skies with no rain at all I thought it was accurate but I guess not.

by Toy Dogwatch on 2019/07/28 23:23
I have been using accuweather for 7 years now and one thing I noticed is it is having a crash report on the Apple Watch ⌚️ and it’s not working 100% on the Apple Watch ⌚️ and I noticed it lags during start up on my new iPhone X’r I am using iOS 12.4 and it also lags on my Apple Watch ⌚️ I don’t know if you developers are aware of this issue but if you aren’t I have been dealing with this issue with all the iPhones that I have had and every update that gets done seems to improve it a little bit but it doesn’t fix it all the way and I understand it’s difficult to get things right during each update and you developers definitely nailed it with adding it were this app keeps alerting you down to the very minute when severe weather is about to hit but one thing I would add in the future if you can is having it notify you when rain will be starting I know some apps have that but it would definitely be a nice feature to have with accuweather because I use accuweather a lot but I do love accuweather and I do trust it a lot more than some of my other apps that I have
This app is confised & all WET!
by Laur1220 on 2018/07/27 10:04
I switched to Accuweather app from iPhone’s standard Weather app b/c there was some sort of bug going on w/ that app & my phone—I wasn’t properly getting severe weather alerts. (We had horrible flash floods & I didn’t get a warning until it was already in the midst of the torrential rain & flooding.) So I switched to this app. Now, I do get warnings—but too many often inaccurate ones. I live in Catonsville and it told me there was a ‘coastal’ flood warnings for my town. This is ridiculous, b/c we are nowhere near the coast! Right now, I woke up this morning to yet another torrential rain storm—we’ve had them all week. This morning’s had not been predicted last night. I turned on my phone to look at the app to check it’s weather report. The main screen showed only “some clouds” & the precipitation monitor showed 0%. The radar showed no rainstorm. And the hourly also only showed partial clouds. Yet, the rain gauge said “rain ending in 17 minutes”! Clearly the tail isn’t talking to the head! What a totally confusing disconnect! Totally out of touch with reality of the weather here . Only after about 25 minutes later, as the storm was mostly subsiding, did it finally show on the main screen that a thunderstorm was going on. But the hourly still wasn’t updated. Needless to say, I can’t vouch for the accuracy of the “Accu”Weather app!
So so app
by Pmotz on 2018/02/20 14:30
I was a regular user of Storm, but they deleted the ad-free option so I tried AccuWeather. Nope, It’s worse. The forecast, regardless of the name is no better than any other weather forecast, which is to say poor. A few observations: There is no option that I’ve found for displaying wind speed. The cloud cover is truly odd, lighter cloud cover has darker opacity and heavier cloud cover is lighter opacity, huh? That’s the opposite of what it should be. I’ve got the Premium version and it offers a 25 day forecast, well isn’t that special. The weather forecasters have trouble with tomorrows weather and they think they can forecast 25 days out? For entertainment purposes only. I get FAR too many severe weather notifications, many more than I get in Storm. Most of them are repeats, if a winter weather advisory is posted at 9:00 AM I get a notification right away, if I turn the screen off I will find another notification the next time I open it, for the same original advisory. Once is enough, thank you! Finally, the radar is pretty worthless, sometimes there’s nothing there when there should be, other times while playing the past couple of hours some of the “slices” are missing so the rain/snow is hurry jerky. When I check Storm’s radar it’s much better. Sorry, but this app is pretty sad.
“Wow AccuWeather”
by clenet7 on 2018/07/07 01:09
My, my, am I pleasantly surprised today. I have been looking for years for an ACCURATE weather app that has animated weather conditions and finally by a chance view of an MSN sponsored ad (ads I never look at) I find AccuWeather. I’m amazed at the accuracy, appearance and ease of use of the app. It’s not overwhelming in its delivery and yet more detailed delivery is readily at your fingertips if you so choose. Can’t wait to see how accurate the rainy season of Southern California will be reported. To make this app beyond great please, please, pleeeeeeease give us the option to add weather sounds to go with your AccuWeather forecasted conditions even at a premium. A lot of us live in places where we miss the sounds of a windy day, or a rainy day, or a lightening stormy day, or the sound of ocean waves. Just imagine the comforting sounds for many people. I added other areas that have lots of weather change patterns to my AccuWeather app list just to see the different weather conditions. I am so looking forward to hearing them as well someday soon.
Love it!
by Farmgrl7 on 2019/07/20 20:02
Within the past 2 days, including today, my state has been under severe thunderstorm and tornado warnings and watches. I myself have had to take shelter yesterday and today due to tornado touch downs. After downloading 3 weather apps and never ending alerts and checking each app radar map, alerts and forecasts and comparing...I was wrong for doubting Accuweather. I was doubting your app due to getting warnings and calls from family and friends before I had even gotten an alert from this app and several of these family/friends use this app. I already had Accuweather but I also installed Weather Bug and TWC (which I have used these apps before). While all 3 apps alerted me of severe weather, TWC alerted me with my location being in in a city 13 miles SW of me, Weather Bug alerted me with my location being in a city 16 miles East of me. I reside in a township where we don’t have tornado sirens that warn us. I was NOT happy. Again, I watched all apps in motion today. The ONLY app that loaded radar during the storm today was Accuweather. HANDS DOWN, I give this app 4.8 stars. It could use some work but I’m glad I didn’t just delete it cuz it came through!
Layout is Confusing
by audreylynn88 on 2019/03/02 11:32
I decided to download the premium version of this app after The Weather Channel had too many video advertisements. I was just tired of the ads. This app has no ads, but it is the LEAST user-friendly app I’ve ever had. The “back arrow” buttons are the same color and size as the text, and they’re placed right next to the text, so it took me a while to figure out how to go back. And every screen, the back button looks different. Sometimes you have to swipe down to get out of a screen (for example, hourly), and sometimes you have to hit the back button. And don’t even get me started on trying to toggle the hourly “compass”-style button. As soon as you touch the circle to try to drag it, the entire data does this weird zoom thing and the sensitivity is way too high for anyone’s thumb. It’s like they adjusted the mouse speed to 100- any tiny movement and you’re 4 hours past where you wanted to go, and it doesn’t land where you want it to land. Also, the circle should be on the actual hours, not on the bar graph below. You have to move the circle on the bar graph to see the hours change on top. It’s just not a very well-designed app.
Useful features, but the alerts need work
by palabrajot on 2018/10/13 02:07
Accuweather is my primary weather app- it’s very good about serving up detailed and timely information, and the alerts are especially crucial when you live in a northern plains state like I do, where floods, tornadoes and suddenly icy roads are all things which have to be accounted for. It’s because of the alerts that I have to drop a couple of stars, though- more often than not, the push notifications which Accuweather sends me are almost useless, because it will buzz my Apple Watch or my phone with a message that I have an alert, but not include the nature of the threat. This forces me to dig out my phone, open the app and find the button with the yellow exclamation point next to it. High winds? Heavier than usual rain? An addendum to an existing flood alert? A tornado in my area? All treated the same. I get fatigued from all this vigilance, which can itself be dangerous- I’m forced to treat every pop-up like it’s a potential disaster, instead of just getting the important highlights in a watch alert which I can then either dismiss or explore in greater depth. This correction would make Accuweather so much more useable for me.
Exactly what I was looking for and more
by mortemistress on 2018/05/03 09:36
I was looking for a weather app that would not only provide ACCURATE weather throughout the day and week, but also provide an allergy forecast, since I have pretty severe allergies. This app has done both of those, and done them well. It also has a small section on the Sun and Moon, and tells you the moon phase for the night. That is extremely beneficial for me, and is a feature I did not expect to find. I just saw an ad pop up to get 10 extra days of forecasts if I sign in with my Facebook, so I’m assuming I’ll have to pay for this at some point? Can’t be sure, but even if I do, I’m going to keep the app and pay for it, because it’s wonderful. It’s extremely simple and easy to use, and nice to look at (light and dark themes are also a bonus). I used to have this app a long time ago because it used to give a migraine forecast as well, since I get migraines often (don’t see that anymore, but that’s totally fine since my migraines are often related to the weather and allergies, and the app provides forecasts for both of those), and completely forgot about it. So happy I found it again! I know it’s odd to be so excited about a weather app, but trust me, when you have horrible allergies, arthritis, asthma, eczema, and migraines (yeah and I’m only 24, can’t imagine how bad I’ll be when I’m in my 70s), an app like this actually helps a decent amount so you can prepare for things a little bit.
Functional and Beautiful
by danwagner01 on 2018/05/15 18:46
I like everything about the AccuWeather app. AccuWeather has added one feature which I have never seen before. Within the iPhone app they have built a “Complication Center” which allows you to map different AccuWeather information onto the adaptable Apple Watch complication. The differing information will appear depending on which complication field you choose to add the AccuWeather complication to when customizing your Apple Watch. Basically, if the complication allows for three lines of information, in the complication center you can add three lines of detailed forecast information from within the app. But, if the complication is tiny (in one of the corners of your watch face) you can pick from a variety of secondary information to display there. When customizing the watch face all you need to do is add AccuWeather to any of the complication fields and your pre-selected weather information is displayed on one watch face. The AccuWeather team has done an incredible job designing this functional yet beautiful app.
App rating
by *4.0* on 2017/09/09 10:03
Enjoyed this App for a few years & find it much better than any other weather app. The video section could be greatly improved with the most current weather that shows time, as well as the day recorded, and more about the weather as well. Many current Worldwide weather events as well as the USA Weather. It also has repetition of the same videos after showing it the first time, when it could be a similar video from the same weather event but from a different point of view, scenery, and source. Whom ever sets these up could do a much better job just by searching the internet as so many people report their whereabouts and how the weather is affecting them in their area. It would be a better radar section if it would include a World Radar section that would be continuous to see how the weather affects each different section of the World.
This used to be great
by Chell of Aperture on 2018/08/03 18:01
I don’t write many reviews. But after relying on a good app for many years, I must say ever since the start of 2018 it has plummeted. Too many unnecessary and inaccurate warnings, and the rain is barely accurate as well anymore. The temperature is still pretty spot on but besides that theres nothing else really left to applaud. The radar is odd, and only shows for the following hour, not to mention many glitchy aspects that so many people already have pointed out. I am currently looking for another app to replace this one with because these Special Weather statements are too much now. Ever since the start of the year they are over the top. I even got a Tornado warning in my area (which is a hilly area on the east coast that gets a tornado once every few years) and then a second alert five minutes later saying “CORRECTION: Foggy conditions”.... How does one mess up that bad... Not to mention general and regular thunder storms being sent out as Special Weather statements, and then not happening at all. All in all I am just very disappointed in the changes that have happened. This app used to be great, but now it isn’t.
Loved it then, hate it now....
by TalkinTolkien on 2019/02/05 14:07
Why, oh, WHY do app developers insist on fixing what ain’t broken? It’s this weird restless need to do something- anything, and then insist it’s improvement. Don’t they read reviews? It’s the same lament that is so often seen.... the app was great UNTIL.....(fill in the blank). Random changes are not the same as progress! So this was my go-to app. Easy to read and navigate in 2 seconds flat. Now it’s a blinking, flashing, hot mess of bells and whistles, click-bait “news” and ads screaming “look HERE!!!” And they know it’s annoying, they KNOW it.... that’s why they’ll let you opt out for $4 in case you actually want to see, you know. the. weather. I’ve never met an app developer. But as a researcher I’d love to get to know one and figure out how their brains work. They must be an interesting breed to intentionally make a product annoying so you will pay more to avoid the annoyance. It would be brilliant, except.... there are other apps out there, in case you actually want to know, um, the weather (rather than a kangaroo stumbling through floodwaters, the ‘news’ they helpfully provided me this morning.) So....there’s that.
Was my go to for weather
by Auggie's Man on 2018/11/29 17:32
WAS My go-to weather app. Gives me what I need and the accuracy is often scary. Rain in 10 minutes? Yep. There it is. Wait 20 to walk the dogs. BUT honestly they say today is going to be a high of 85. It's 73 now, and in 2 minutes is supposed to be 83. It's not going to happen. Also it will say in one place no rain for two hours, the radar shows nothing, but the chance of rain it gives is high and it starts to pour. Just now saying raining for two hours, but the chance or rain during this hour? 0%. What? I check the NOAA radar, and it shows rain all around. The other apps are much closer to the forecast mark, seems to me not too hard to recalibrate if things change, others can! And be consistent in your readings. UPDATE: Was my go to, now it's inaccurate more times than not. I deleted when privacy an issue, then reloaded when fixed. Now don't use because it's wrong. Now? Says it's 100F which it's clearly not. Then I reload 3 times and it's suddenly right at 86. Too much work. I'm out.
The PREVIOUS App was Fine
by popmusiccritic on 2019/05/10 15:01
My apologies to the team who put all that work into rewriting this app. The old app was by far more convenient. It’s not that we can’t figure the new app out, it’s just that the developers made it infinitely cumbersome to retrieve data. For instance, in the old app you simply viewed the hourly list. Now you have a choice of 3 views (temp, real, precip) but all in separate views instead of them all in a single view like it used to be; and in order to scroll to see each hour, you put your thumb on a big dot which instantly shifts the time you were viewing to some floating random time. Then you slide sideways while trying to see what time of day the info is giving you. In the old app you simply saw the entire hourly list. Simple. Had putting your thumb on the dot set you immediately at the CURRENT time, but it doesn’t. The ‘cool’ Flash graphics gives a floating feeling until you find out where you are in time. Just too cumbersome. Sadly the new app REPLACES the old app automatically. Maps and videos loaded much better in the old app too. Too bad.
Update 11.7.2 Shuts Down the App when I try to load Radar
by ~StillinSaigon~ on 2018/10/12 01:12
I can’t believe you fixed bugs and added all the fancy features but not only on my iPod Touch but on my new iPad Pro, there’s no screen or offer to have Accuweather to be more precise. Now on my iPod Touch 6th Generation I cant see anything but the home screen with an area close to my home address and I do get the alerts for tornado warnings and flash flood warnings but other than that...your New Upgrade is worthless to me. After it quit working on your update 11.7.2, I did get a notification that my Apple Products had an update to a higher level than 12. Something so I downloaded it on my iPod Touch 6th Generation and my iPad Pro which was bought 2 weeks ago and it didn’t help your fancy new release. Whenever I hit Radar, because Hurricane Michael is hitting Richmond, Virginia right now, I see my home screen. At least on my iPad Pro I can see the Radar but when I go to a store or even just go out, I find it much easier to carry an iPod Touch with me rather than a iPad Pro with a 10.5” screen. At least I know I’ll remove your App from my Laptop the next time I boot it up. 🤬.
Miss the old version
by Phil Wagner on 2018/11/19 05:18
AccuWeather has long been my favorite weather channel, and when I purchased my first iPad, one of the first apps I downloaded was the AccuWeather app, which gave me a lot of good local weather information along with concise and accurate video forecasts and also featured video blogs of the weather forecasters discussing in some detail certain aspects of the global weather. For example, one blog I loved to watch had a meteorologist who discussed in much detail the different models of predicting the formation and progression of tropical storms and hurricanes as the stormy season progressed. Now all I have are graphics and videos that are often not related to the weather at all. And, since the last update, the app doesn’t seem to know where I am in that the local forecast is for an area far removed from my home, meaning I have to go in and enter and save my home address almost every night. This is becoming a great nuisance so until AccuWeather can fix this bug and bring back the video forecasts and blogs, I’m going to delete the app and use another weather app.
A must have for anyone spending time outdoors
by -Dano on 2018/12/23 16:23
When my scout troop and I were spending a week hiking the AT a few years ago, we got caught out in a freak storm. Everyone got completely soaked. Next day we happened across some folks in a nearby shelter, all dry and warm. We stopped to talk to them and told them our story of the storm. They told us about this app and how they made a run for the shelter once it the app said a storm was coming. At the next stop I downloaded the app. A day later, still on the on the trail, we were taking a much needed rest. I pulled out my phone to check the app. I told the troop, “Hey guys, the app says it’s going to start raining in less than...” and it started to rain before I could finish the sentence. One of the scouts just looked at me and said, “ now that’s scary”. I swear by this app, still use it all the time to this day. Thanks for a great app! Scoutmaster Dan

Of all of the weather apps I’ve seen many have poor types of cloud cover precipitation imaging covered during storms for areas specific to where the storm is, they tend to generalize with like green or purple or pink or whatever color they make snow and they don’t really define with sharpness. I guess what I’m trying to say is when you see a radar map you expect to see sharpness in the image not just a general color for rain or for snow or for mixed precipitation so I would like to see more sharpness especially during storms to define what the storm is doing so much sharper images would be very useful in these apps. Please except my advice as being useful as I am a longtime member of “skywarn” and registered with the National Weather Service in Mount Holly as a weather watcher and I have been since 1996 when I was in the newspaper for it, also two of my sons are avid weather watchers as well as astronomy watchers so we kind of take all this very seriously.

Dog walking essential.
by Evie1LovesMusic on 2019/05/18 14:39
I depend on AccuWeather daily for knowing how to dress appropriately for dog walks. When it rains my dog is under the umbrella and I’m the one getting wet. So as much information on minute cast and radar is helpful. My dog doesn’t have an undercoat so choosing a t-shirt, sweater or coat is much easier with your “RealFeel” temperatures! Personally I think the “RealFeel” is more important than the actual temperature. The wind and humidity in the Midwest can feel 10 to 15 degrees different than the actual temperatures, which can mean a completely different outfit change... for me in the Summer and both of us in the winter! However, there are a few things on my wish list. Having daily rain totals for the month would be helpful in gauging if and when I need to water. Also, sunrise and sunset times are a determining factor on the safer times to do my dog walks and would be a lovely addition. No weather information is 100% accurate, but AccuWeather does a pretty good job!
Updated version works great
by Peabarter on 2018/10/07 20:37
Upgraded rating down to 3 since this app sends you many notifications that are completely irrelevant. They need to allow you to pick and choose what to be notified by. I do not live in a floodplain. I use this app all of the time unlike many apps that sit idly on my phone. I like being able to scan down the hourly forecast and see whether it was cloudy or Sunny or rainy which is gone now. It is convenient to add different areas to quickly call up the weather. I use this when vacationing and it helped plan activities around the weather conditions. They fixed the error that used to show up every time you open the App. This version is very stable and works great. It would be nice if they made it so you could pick the background color scheme. I keep waiting for apps to give more control for customization of appearance, but it just doesn't happen. It must be a system thing that is controlled from Apple. I highly recommend this weather app.
Outstanding App/ Great Features
by Barbara Morrison on 2018/03/10 19:18
I have an iPhone 8Plus. This app also worked beautifully on my iPhone 7 Plus. My husband has an iPhone 7. It works just as well on his phone. I love the Minute By Minute feature. It works! (We live on the western slopes of the Wasatch Mountains in Utah. Weather is notoriously changeable around mountains.) I use the Extended Forecast constantly. I really like the ease with which I plug in other locations to learn the weather situation where family members live or at a destination to which we are traveling. Due to family history interests, I even keep Stornoway, Scotland, on the Island of Lewis in my list of locations I might want to check on! The Allergy info is an excellent feature as well as the hour by hour temperature lay-out throughout the day. I have tried other apps. The Apple Weather App is basic and rudimentary. AccuWeather is elegantly designed - very smooth 👌
Finally! This is a great app again!
by T M H on 2017/09/08 00:26
7 Sep 2017 - I just downloaded the latest version and it's perfect again!! It's been years since it was a 5-star app. But it is now! ********* I just upgraded this from 1 to 2 stars. It is improved, but still horribly cluttered. It shouldn't take so much effort and scrolling just to find out what the high and low are for the day. ********** I just lowered this from 3 stars to 1 (and I used to give it 5)! The advertising is VERY intrusive! VERY! Especially with all the design issues (over-crowding, small font, layout). I decided that it might be worthwhile to pay to remove the ads -- that costs $2.99! I would pay 99¢ or maybe even $1.99 -- like other apps -- but $2.99? No way! Not for the cluttered piece of junk this has become. Which is sad to say about an app that I so strongly used to recommend to everyone… ********** This used to be a great app -- 5 stars from me. BUT… the newest version on the iPhone adds so much stuff but the developers didn't know where to put it all!! It's so cluttered now. The user interface is clumsy, inefficient, and less intuitive. The fonts aren't great, the colors detract rather than add, legends and labels on graphs are way too small. It's far more effort now to figure out what the forecast is for a couple evenings from now, for example. A big step backwards…
Visually Stunning plus Everything I Want
by Skye Christina on 2018/09/22 12:35
The first screen has the temperature, the real feel, the humidity, and the dew point (I am allergic to hot and humid weather so I must have the dew point at my finger tips - btw: a dew point of 70 is considered “tropical” which, if you have a hard time with ectoplasmic weather, that’s why you’re feeling so crabby). I went in search of an app after The Weather Channel made some visual changes - which are way to busy, and I had to scroll through tons of needless info to get the “feels like” and the dew point. It was visually hard to read. The screen was small and didn’t include the actual temperature. I suffered for a few weeks and finally hopped on the App Store to see what was out there. I wasn’t expecting much bc I already have Dark Sky and Weather Bug. Both apps have their place but THEN I FOUND THIS APP!! Definitely my new favorite. And it is so VISUALLY STUNNING that my husband got it right away. I open it up and on the first screen is a beautiful “live” pic of the weather WITH 1)The Temp 2)Real Feel 3)Humidity and the 4)Dew Point. There are two other pieces of information on that screen but the above are my favorite. The hourly and weekly info are easily available with one tap. Thank you AccuWeather! I’m looking forward to your artwork for Fall and Winter!
Great app, but with a huge radar limitation
by Larry.McJ on 2017/09/17 23:04
Edited - I still like this app a lot, but they really need to do something about the radar map. It is horrible! Every time I tap on radar, I get "loading, loading, loading". And I am on Verizon with five bars. What good is a Weather+ app if the radar does not work? I've tried all the top weather apps available here and while I personally think AccuWeather could be thevery best of them all, it has a major problem with the radar map. In all the other apps I've tried, you can pinch/zoom the distance so the radar map covers an area that the user wants to view (not the developer). With AccuWeather, the minimum distance you can view on the radar map covers from the top of Tennessee to the bottom (in my case), which is about 140 miles and not nearly sufficient to see when rain is starting or stopping at my location. Not sure why they did this, but if it's stopping me from purchasing the in-app Premium version, I'll bet it's stopping others as well. Fix this, AccuWeather, and I'll change my review to five stars and pay for the Platinum version.
Slow down
by SunnyorRainy on 2018/05/26 15:45
Please slow down the animation on the radar screen, or give me the option to. It is impossible to see the weather and what time it is supposed to be here before it starts over. I asked a looonnnng time ago for this. Never happened. And why is a real time weather app behind about 10 minutes? Severe weather can happen in a matter of minutes here in Tennessee. I don’t want to see the tornado heading toward me on the radar in 10 minutes when in actuality I can see it with my own eyes. That’s a little too late. Or you tell me rain is coming in 15 minutes when it’s already been raining for 10. Real time is real time, that is why I deleted Weather Bug and downloaded yours. You used to be exactly on time, not ten minutes behind. Thank you for years of great service. Can we get back to that.....Please? And thank you so much for a really great app except for a few quirks.
Disappointing. Poor UX design. Cached info too often.
by MadManM00n on 2018/11/03 14:32
The app has been a big disappointment. Just like all the other weather apps I've tried since the Weather Channel shuttered the Wunderground Storm app. The UX design is poor. Way too much sliding and scrolling needed to get to information. The hourly weather scroller is a great example of this. The scroll element, along with the daily bar graph, takes up most of the focal area of the screen, while the actual forecast details appear less prominently below it. Another annoyance with the hourly weather display is the fact that the current day and time display defaults to the far left of the screen (Tablet user expectations differ slightly from desktop users, with their initial focus being the center/top of a screen as opposed to left/top). This inevitably results in an initial confusion when first viewing and/or scrolling. Finally, being served up cached radar information does me no good when I need to know what the approaching weather is *right now*. I understand that the app's performance may be limited by the current network connection, but it seems that it would make more sense to retrieve low resolution imagery when a slow connection is detected, as opposed to showing a radar image from 18 hours ago.
I think I finally found what I was looking for!
by MMLS1514 on 2018/05/24 17:55
I have been using Storm for years but had to find a replacement since it’s no longer supported. After trying a bunch of different apps over the past few months that I didn’t like at all I was about to give up but decided to give this a try. I just downloaded it but so far I’m glad I did! It’s clean, easy to read, and allows me to quickly see all the info I need. I have a small horse farm in severe storm and tornado country so I check the weather often. Ads didn’t take up too much space compared to other apps but I went ahead and upgraded to premium because it wasn’t too much and I was so relieved to find a weather app I actually like. I will say I just downloaded it so hopefully I didn’t jump the gun writing this review. Will update if I need to.
Good, not great, and occasional glitch.
by PerryLClark on 2019/04/30 17:32
I’m using the free version of the app—and yes, there are ads, and they’re mildly annoying/obtrusive at times. But I’ll put up with ads for a decent service. Forecast data is reasonably accurate, and goes out to 15 days as reliably/accurately as any other. I’m using the iOS version of the app on an iPad Pro, iOS 12.2, all updates installed as of 30 April 2019. The interface isn’t as intuitive as it should be, and saving settings is problematic—eg, if I change units to SI (aka ‘metric system’), there’s a near-instantaneous change to deg C, km/hr, etc. But no ‘save’ button, and the next time I open the app, I’m back in Imperial units (deg F, miles, inches, etc). Switching between locations is also less intuitive than it should be; I find myself staring at the iPad for a moment, trying to recall how to switch from one locale to another. That shouldn’t happen more than once.
The Best Weather Info!!
by WhtOtter on 2019/08/09 01:26
My daughter, son, and I live in 3 different states. I’m one if those moms who has to know what’s going on and if everyone is safe. I watch their current weather as much as I do my own. When my daughter’s or son’s weather turns dangerous to life threatening, I’m on my AccuWeather comparing my reports to their local reports. AccuWeather gives me such peace of mind... giving in-depth information about the existing conditions and how the are monitored. I could write a book about this site. It would include pages of reasons why everyone should have this downloaded.. especially if they have any family or very close friends. When others were unable to get through to those in weather peril, I’m usually talking to them ‘before’ the disaster has hit. A huge THANK YOU to my #1 weather site, AccuWeather!
Revamp needed/always wrong
by FreedomFarms1978 on 2019/03/11 17:57
I’ve used this app for a long time. I’ve noticed like many others have mentioned that something is breaking down somewhere along the lines. For example, it forecasted beautiful weather on March 10 and we got it. A great day. For our area in East Tennessee it called for a beautiful week with exception of Friday. So checked later last night and the forecast is still the same. A beautiful Monday, sunny, 63 degrees and no rain. Checked this morning at 7:30am and again at 10am. Same forecast. However Since we have a farm and work outside daily I noticed things were looking different than what the forecast was saying. So at about 10:30 I checked the forecast again and it said exact same thing. However I click radar and notice a huge storm/front is about to hit. 3 hours later it’s still pouring. Only after the rain had started did the forecast ever change. Doesn’t make a lot of since to have a app and weather service that this happens very often with. Hopefully you guys get your inner workings sorted out.
I love it again
by SprMan-KalEl on 2018/10/26 01:53
October 25, 2018- It seems that developers have fixed the widget and it works with the location for the app being set to ‘While Using the App’. Thank you. October 19, 2018- Update came today. Widget STILL doesn’t work with location setting on While Using the App. What a shame! This app was always pretty accurate. Especially with the radar and predicting when rain would start and stop. Then....an update came. An update that broke the widget completely. I never had a problem with the widget. I always kept the app’s location setting on -While Using the App- and the widget worked fine. Now, the widget doesn’t work unless the location is set to Always. I don’t need it set to always. Two emails to the developer yielded nothing but pre-composed responses. Very disappointed.
So far NOT Accurate
by ldi_70 on 2019/05/26 08:31
Been using a week or so since it has good reviews but so far it has been very inaccurate in predicting rainfall. I literally have been watching it rain only to see on the app a “No precipitation for 120 minutes”...?! The other day it had our rain chances at 100% and guess what?! Not a drop fell. It’s been this way the whole time I’ve used it. It also doesn’t let me enter my location (it keeps defaulting to an area very near me so I gave up on it getting my exact location). The only good thing about it is it has a predictor for humidity levels throughout the day though I’m not sure how accurate that is since it can’t even get rainfall correct WHILE it’s raining! Update: Been using it for several months and comparing to other apps it is SUCH A JOKE!!! It should be renamed In-Accuweather as it cannot Get anything but the temperature right and I even question that sometimes! It’s been raining nonstop here and flooding but great old In-Accuweather says “No Precipitation for the next 120 minutes”....?!$&@????!!!
New Update & Interface is Excellent!
by SocratesSU on 2017/09/10 12:36
Without belaboring the details, I have tried over two dozen paid and free weather apps. I am often frustrated with the lack of useful information, cluttered displays, and intrusive ads. In fact the previous iterations of the Accuweather app were so poor, I stopped using them. But this latest update really hits the mark, in my opinion. Update: The new UI layout is fantastic. The main screen clearly summarizes all the pertinent details used most frequently. The quick access buttons/links for radar, hourly, and daily info are excellent and save time having to scroll through unwanted screens just to get the info you want. This latest update solidifies AccuWeather even more as my very favorite weather app. Highly recommended.

by Bigsargt on 2019/05/07 17:55
Since my wife and I down loaded the app, we have compared it with others. And found that it has more persistent to what is going on outside. We have put others on to accuweathers app. From where we live to family and friends that live in other states. It makes it a hole lot better when traveling. I just wish that it had something that would let us know when server weather is nearby. For like myself has a hard time hearing. And don’t look at the phone all the time. An sound alert would be great. And all of us like that it changes towns/cities when traveling. And that checking the weather at the destination where we’re going. Like from Missouri to Michigan and the town/city where we’re going to. Thank you.
Read Privacy Policy BEFORE You Agree!
by Mcgap on 2018/05/06 00:06
I downloaded AccuWeather as I have found their webpage to be useful and I have been disappointed with WU's direct offerings. There's immediately a popup for you to read the Terms & Services and Privacy Policy and then Agree to it. At least they do put that front and center--good for them. Based on what I read of the Privacy Policy, you will be asked to register and to provide personal information etc. It seemed pretty clear that you would have considerable "exposure". It also stated that they could change the policy at any time without notifying you and you would be subject to those changes even if you didn't know of them! ...that you should check back frequently to read the Privacy Policy---How likely is that for 99% of folks who already have a mess of privacy policies to contend with. Sorry, but things are dicey enough out there without going looking for trouble. It might even be a great app, but it gets 1 star for being way too nosy. I have downloaded and deleted...
Was great till the last update
by all320 on 2017/09/13 00:35
I've been using this app for years now and have loved it, but one small change in the most recent update has made it useless for me. I suffer from migraines that can be triggered by the barometric pressure. I have, after years of logging, discovered my "safe" zone. Depending on what the pressure is doing I can change certain things to reduce the chance of a migraine. After buying app after app I found this one, which had the key for me. It not only showed the barometric pressure, it showed whether it was steady, rising or falling. One little arrow made monitoring the pressure SO MUCH EASIER for me. And now that's been removed, and only the current pressure shows. No more indicator of what the pressure is doing, if anything. This was a CRUCIAL feature for me, and dozens of others I referred to this app just because of that feature. Without it it's just another useless weather app. Crossing my fingers that it comes back in another update...soon.
Those videos
by Giasb on 2019/03/25 15:58
The videos drive me crazy. They show flooding, tornadoes, dust storms...all sorts of interesting and/or terrifying things, but they NEVER tell you where it is. I want to know if the flooding is near me or a loved one. Also, during each video, a pop-up tells you what the next video is, and this pop-up covers up part of what you’re trying to watch. If you click the X on this pop-up, it pauses the video. If you restart the video...I don’t know, then something else happens. I can’t remember. At this point in the process, I am usually complaining to my husband about AccuWeather and their stupid videos. And I am not the sort of person who angers easily. Please, if you care about my marriage at all, fix the video issues. :-P There are issues with the radar, too, but I’m tired of typing. I love the other information. It really helps me plan my day, especially my outdoor exercise.
Ok so
by XzGames on 2019/02/12 02:55
Honestly I use this app a lot , but I got a lot of problems for starters, when you look at anything let’s say a snowstorms coming, the winter storm warning says 9-12 but then I see 6-10 when not lookin at the warning? That’s stupid. Second it’s annoying how when Evers there’s some tropical storm not affecting the USA it doesn’t show up on there tropical storm radar, Why? If I lived in let’s say the Philippines and there’s some sort of tropical cyclone coming towards the area, I wouldn’t know much. There many times where you guys have just been wrong from snow to anything really one time it said snow on Sunday in summer, HOW when the high is 89 degrees is it gonna snow, sometimes, there’s delays in stuff i get a notification on a watch or warning tap on it go to the app and nothing there.
Love this app
by moon sunshi9 on 2019/07/19 01:26
I think this app is 99% right on point!! We live right on the Bay & r on our yacht a lot or thinking of going somewhere on it & we use accu weather app a lot to decide if we should tk a trip or if we should postpone trip!! As a matter of fact I was just looking at next week accu W to see what day weather looks good so my brother can decide what day to come so we can pick the best day he should come . He has 1/2 drive 1 way. Anyways, we used accu weather app so we could pick a great day to lay n pool !! So thank you all for everyone that put this virtually flawless software program together and made it available to everyone!!! And also user friendly!!! Please keep this app available!!!!! It’s more than worth it to hv especially the accuracy is so perfect!!!
Good Weather App, but add humidity to quickview
by Nickname4AppReview on 2018/07/09 22:12
I’ve been struggling to find a weather app that is at least 50% accurate (ah New England weather). So far this one works quite well. I’ve gotten used to the layout and like how easy it is to switch locations. My one request would be to add Humidity and air quality to the Daily overview detail screens. Currently, you need to go hour by hour to find humidity for a day later in the week. You’ve got so many other great fields - wind gusts, precipitation, etc. It would be so awesome to see this right away as well. Especially on the coast where so many factors can contribute to a “feels like” temp much more than just humidity (wind direction, ocean temp, etc.). It would be great to know when to plan on going outside for a run when it’s not horrible air quality. ;) Thanks and keep up the great work!
Most Accurate Weather! Really
by M N S H on 2018/05/16 13:54
No other weather app gets that the weather in my neighborhood differs significantly from that of the very large town where we live. We are near the bay and winds off the bay reduce our rainfall. That said, PLEASE reconsider the new hourly format. It is much more difficult to interpret than the prior in which you saw all the hours vertically. You could easily scan up and down to see the arc of the day and could expand any hours you had more interest in. Also directly from the hours list you could move to additional days and see their hourlies. It was way more user friendly and informative. I don’t hold you to the same accuracy for future days but the arc of the weather for future (& current) days was always a great help in planning my daily responsibilities. Oh yes... and TERRIFICALLY ACCURATE, really.
The Best Weather Reporting Ever!
by BigTom65 on 2018/07/22 22:30
I think AccuWeather is the best Weather Reporting App out there right now. They definitely have the other Weather Apps beat by a long shot, and I’ve been following AccuWeather for a long time, and they have always been on top of the Weather, and getting it out to the public as fast as they can, especially when it was bad Weather, and could do a lot of damage. They are always updating their equipment to the best stuff out there on the market today. So AccuWeather, I would like to Thank You Very Much, for all that you do, to keep me, my family, and friends, and the rest of the public out there, safe with your good Reporting, from all the bad Weather out there, that wants to try and hurt us all the time. Thank You Very Much!!!
Peerless
by dcoloprisco on 2017/10/03 21:26
AccuWeather has been my “go to” meteorologists since the TV commercial with the Traffic Cop wearing a yellow slicker on a sunny day declaring “When AccuWeather says it’s going to rain it usually rains.” Apart from the quality of the forecasts, this UI is modern, pretty, functional, and multi-faceted. I am the the guy who get consulted on the weather quite often and I know that it’s due to the valuable information that I obtain from here. I love the new design, it is much more intuitive and the little touches like the depiction of the sky with animation is testament to attention to detail. I run the pro version of your app on every device I have. That said, I do take issue with the functioning ABC "non-ad' link included in the interface. Otherwise, it is just terrific!
Where is the accuracy?
by raist3001 on 2019/05/27 12:47
05/19 So I have not deleted this app yet only because of the 25 day forecast. I like to see what the weather might be like in a week or so. Otherwise for me this app is garbage. Over 2 years and they have not corrected the location issue bug they are fully aware of. Obviously the developers don’t know how to fix it. None of my other weather apps has a location issue. They locate me in the proper town while this app located me 2 towns over. 10/18 App still has a location issue. I have contacted the developers for over a Year and they know of this bug yet it has not been fixed. How can this be possible?? I never get accurate weather due to this bug! Worthless app if not accurate. 6/18 Reduced to one star. App has a location issue that the developers are aware of. Over a year and the bug has not been fixed. So I don’t get accurate weather reports. Worthless app if not accurate. I don't know how this app is being rated 4 and 5 stars. Nothing about this app is accurate. Starting with location. The app says I am located 2 towns over from where I really am. It's so frustrating. Then the app is usually always wrong when rain is to begin and end. I get predictions always telling me rain is to start, yet the sun is shining. All week it predicted rain for memorial day, yet the sun was shining. Horrible predictions. No way I can trust this app.
Fast and Accurate With Slight Interface Issues
by ckaiser306 on 2018/09/14 23:54
Fastest weather app I’ve used. It doesn’t take long to load a new location and the radar is awesome. The only problem I have is some intuitive interface issues. I’m a designer and the scroll feature hour by hour has an indicator dot to highlight what hour you’re on which is pretty nice. However, you can only scroll above this area on the temperature numbers. It’s counter intuitive and you can’t scroll in the graphical area with the sliding indicator dot. If you try, the app glitches a bit - screen jumps around. Doesn’t really make sense and for a user, and is hard to understand off the bat. It takes a minute to understand. Interfaces should be fluid and intuitive for a user. That’s my only real issue though. If that was fixed, I’d say this is your best bet for a weather app. Big time.
Safety Issue: Fix the Alert Notifications!!
by SLMUFN1 on 2018/02/23 11:21
I used to like this app better than others, but at some point the weather alerts that popped up when my phone was locked changed. It USED to summarize the actual danger. Now it just says “Special Weather Advisory.” To view the actual danger, I now have to unlock my phone, open the app, tap the Special Weather Advisory button, tap the Special Weather Statement heading, and THEN I can view the information. THIS TAKES WAY TOO LONG!! For those of us who live in tornado alleys, every millisecond counts. The actual danger should be summarized right in the alert that pops up when the phone is unlocked so I know if I need to take action. Also, when I swipe to find out more, it should take me directly to the alert information within the app. I should not have to tap on anything to view the entire message. This works for my email app. Why not Accuweather too??
The only weather app I use! One suggestion although!
by jerpal1 on 2018/02/08 03:27
Let me first say that this has been my go to weather app for several years now! One either platform this weather service has been far above the rest and it is the only one I have found to be the most accurate, hence the name... I really enjoy the time of precipitation! A suggestion that I have seen elsewhere would be of traffic cams and webcams of different locations based on the location you are viewing. Traffic webcams that are built into the radar with a setting to turn them on and off would amazing! Even webcams throughout each viewing area would be cool too! Just a thought! Overall, love the app and keep up the great work!
Not Accurate at all
by LMcPH on 2018/06/08 00:42
For the use my location, this app put down a street I’ve never heard of. When I looked up where it was it showed about a 1/2 mile from my real location. Then add to that this address 1/2 mile away was showed it pouring with rain for the next 75 minutes. However, where I was it was bone dry outside. So I manually put in my house address and it showed that it wasn’t raining out, and honestly I have no idea what else might have been wrong. I only gave this two stars because it’s not accurate. Even though I was able to find what I think is correct info on where my house is located, that doesn’t help me. I’ll always be wondering if Accuweather got it right and I shouldn’t have to double check. Additionally I wasn’t able to maneuver through this app easily like many weather apps. I actually had to watch the tutorial. Ugh! I mainly wanted this app because of pollen counts. I had googled what free weather apps had accurate pollen counts. This app was listed as one of the top, but that the con of the app was how it took a lot of memory space. So with all that said, I’m removing the app since I just wouldn’t know if it really was an Accurate weather product. And yes I do understand that weather can change in a blink of an eye.
Plague by bugs.
by bajan alwayz on 2018/09/15 12:44
This app used to be my go to app for weather. I have this app on both my iPad and iPhone. Same issues on both. Now the past few months it’s been acting strangely. I normally only write reviews when an app has started acting strangely. First when I click on the live weather it takes very long to load sometimes not loading at all, or it would go through the live weather showing no clouds no precipitation and it was lightning and thunder where I was at ( this is while I’m connected to WiFi so speed shouldn’t have been an issue) next is sometimes when I have the app open and I touch the screen to lets saw slide the temperature bar to see the temperature as the day progress it would freeze then jump as though I was swiping to close the app. Very disappointed with how things have been going with this app. I’ve already found a new one that I like.
