This seems to be the most accurate for the area I’m living in. I mostly appreciate getting that special “ping” that tells me of a storm heading in my direction!
Great app that gives you lots for free unlike Weather Channel and others.

Useless
by josephmo87 on 2019/10/23 13:07
Who made this app? I think they hired a couple of community college drop outs to design it. I work outside for a living and can never count on this app. Radar just won’t load sometimes. Forecast is useless. It’ll show 0% chance of rain and then will be raining. Constantly sends me useless weather warnings that never happen. When the radar does load it’s inaccurate. I’ve had big red blobs over me on the radar but no rain. The search continues for a working weather app.
Very accurate.

Accurate! NOT!
by GJnz74 on 2019/10/23 06:25
The app will be indicating no rain, but graphics are showing a downpour The circle graph will be indicating a drenching rain for the next 30 minutes when there is not a cloud in the sky. What’s happened to the banner alert on the top of the main screen. Also the settings indicate the light/dark color option is automatic. I have yet to see the preferred dark screen. The text and graphics colors disappear on the white screen for the visually impaired. Bring back the black screen please. The accuracy of the location is never right. At best it will indicate my location as being 3 blocks away from my home. Frequently it is indicating a location at a shopping mall 2 miles away from my home. In my city there may be rain in one part of town, snow across town and blue skies with 20 mph winds in another area just 3-4 miles away.

by cp wi on 2019/10/22 22:07
The app worked reliably for a long time, but recent updates crash randomly on launch. At one point I thought it had to do with being connected by wifi, but it crashes even then. If i can get the application to launch successfully it provides the information I am looking for. But if I can’t count on it launching, the app is of no use.

Good app, bad complication
by Gloaming1974 on 2019/10/22 15:45
The app itself is wonderful! I’ve been using it for a few weeks now and haven’t had a single issue. The forecast also seems very accurate. My beef is with the watch complication. 90% of the time it tells me it’s 54 degrees out—even if it’s 34 or 75. When I tap on it to open the Accuweather screen on my watch, all I see is my city name with dashes everywhere. If I go to my phone, everything is working fine. Also, it would be nice if I didn’t have to constantly get my reading glasses out to read that it’s 54 degrees out (although since it rarely is, why am I looking in the first place?). It would be nice if (a) the temperature reading on the watch was accurate and (b) there was a option to have it just show the temperature. My eyes at 45 years old are apparently too old to make this complication worthwhile.

by Jazziesy on 2019/10/22 12:29
I like the app a lot but have one curious question why would anyone want to see the "past" radar picture? Sometimes your screens do not say the same thing. For example it's telling me it's going to rain in 75 minutes yet the hourly forecast shows cloudy? There are times when radar shows rain yet I see no rain.
Good and Stable
by JessLM02 on 2019/10/22 12:25
App is stable and provides an overall good snapshot of the weather. Would be 5 stars but I knocked a star off because you have to dig to get the wind direction for more than the current day. Other that it provides all the info I need.

The precip forecast that tells you “rain in 20 minutes” or whatever is surprisingly accurate and useful.
Trump ads
by Cbrrezz on 2019/10/22 11:22
I’ve had this app for some time. It can be very useful. Unfortunately, I’ve been receiving dishonest, misleading Trump ads while trying to view the weather. I will not give you money by repurchasing this app when you support such an evil person. I am in search of a new weather app.

Bags to rate
by CJ19302 on 2019/10/21 19:44
Constant nagging to rate app. I’ll rate it when I feel like not when I’m annoyed into rating. In addition, this app needs more control of what alerts you receive. I was receiving useless alerts which do not affect me, where I am or where I live until I finally said enough and turned them off.

by Uytoitevhrtjjryioudfwh on 2019/10/21 14:34
The Myers family that owns Accuweather get there information from NOAA but want NOAA to stop making there information available to the public. The Myers have been complaining in the media that they are in direct competition with NOAA and that the government shouldn’t have there weather info available to the public. Barry Myers has been nominatedby Trump two times to head the NOAA weather department and rejected, now nominated a third time! which then will only hamper NOAA and benefit Accuweather. Check the facts at Wikipedia

Now ads block the screen so I had to buy your upgrade to remove the ads. And the minute cast is not able to stay open. I have to go to your unnecessary first screen then choose the minute cast.
Amazing app sometimes doesn’t have the best accuracy
by Estevan Guerrero on 2019/10/21 01:33
This app is amazing and i use it all the time to see how i needs to go dressed for my games and also if I'm going practice our coach uses this to to tell us if practice is changed to a different location I love it and i would not use any other weather service beside this one. Apps do sometimes come with flaws like when it is raining and the weather app says that it is clear and on other weather apps the weather is precise, this has happened twice now a little annoying but rarely happens. Another thing is the app will use a city or a town that is twenty to thirty miles out this happens at least ten present of the time with gets annoying but I've seen it happen with other weather apps so I'm not to upset other that that this app is the best and i would highly recommend using this weather app.

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!
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
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.

I get the MOST ACCURATE weather from this App ! Many weather channels & apps to choose from . I use to go by other sources , but most of them never told me the REAL WEATHER ,LIKE ACCUWEATHER DOES .It also gives more information about what to except on Winds ,Rain , Snow , and with Hourly , Daily or Weekly . So when it’s time for a Vacation or just going out shopping for the Day , I know exactly what to wear , and what items , like a Umbrella or Jacket for the cooler weather in the evening. I Have DELETED ALL MY OTHER WEATHER APPS with mistrusted details ! This one App tells me everything I need for any Outing .Makes my Days Happy , when I’m prepared .Went to Family Reunion, Very Nice Warm 80’s Weather , until the middle of outside Reunion. It started to pour down the rain , and chilled off quickly .I had a change of warmer clothes ,and raincoat & rainboots ,with a Umbrella in my Car .Sure made me tell everyone about Accuweather ,when they all kept asking me , how did you know to be prepared for a such a sudden change ! I felt like I was the Smartest Person Out Of the Whole Family ! Thank You Accuweather , you are my Daily Best Friend ! Shelley H .
“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.
Layout is Confusing

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.
Almost There
by Gamer3475 on 2019/09/13 01:49
I really like the app overall. It loads fast when you open the app (stopped using the Weather Channel app because of very slow loading time). All the info I want is right up front in one view. I like the rain estimates. The radar is the only place that I think the app is lacking. It shows watches and warnings boxes but completely separate from the radar. You can’t overlay the two to get the full context. If the watches and warnings boxes could be overlayed on top of the radar that would be great. I did use the in app contact feature to send a message about this and I was very pleasantly surprised to receive a response the same day just 5 or so hours later. I honestly didn’t even expect a response. Hopefully they will take the suggestion seriously. One other lesser suggestion regarding the radar would be a storm tracks feature. I’ve seen this in other apps where they show a predicted track for a storm cell or parts of a larger storm line. Different color tracks mean different types of storms.
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.
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.

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. 🤬.
Very clean
by capreecious on 2019/08/31 18:39
I think the site is very nice maybe too nice. For the Ocala Villages area many are older and I think when I make the age group I will want things easier. How I can understand is I am a disabled veteran with TBI so short term is effected and my motor skills are 10 years past my present age. So no guessing game just show what is going to happen. I can predict the weather from current radar better than you using the ad method and please it is obvious it is there. The catch the eye but in this instance you are messing with the parents worrying of children and children yes we mostly just watch an episode or so and come back later so you are not getting any profit of anything quantitative value when if you kept people of my watching and placing those ads, well you will see ads soar and we are retired. We will want certain things protection of our family more check ln on news both current and post. Stocks. You have lost old style news it sold .
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
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!
Amazing app sometimes doesn’t have the best accuracy
by Estevan Guerrero on 2019/10/21 01:33
This app is amazing and i use it all the time to see how i needs to go dressed for my games and also if I'm going practice our coach uses this to to tell us if practice is changed to a different location I love it and i would not use any other weather service beside this one. Apps do sometimes come with flaws like when it is raining and the weather app says that it is clear and on other weather apps the weather is precise, this has happened twice now a little annoying but rarely happens. Another thing is the app will use a city or a town that is twenty to thirty miles out this happens at least ten present of the time with gets annoying but I've seen it happen with other weather apps so I'm not to upset other that that this app is the best and i would highly recommend using this weather app.
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.

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.
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!!!
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.
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!!!
Excessive background execution
by mountainman3520 on 2018/12/10 03:51
This is a pretty good weather app. Accuracy not perfect but better than many others. Good info obscured by lots of junk, but not more than many others. New issue is that it asked and I approved it always using my location. Mistake! My iphone X has been running hot and having short battery life. Eventually dug in and found that AccuWeather has been running for hours on the background, pushing it to the top user of battery despite very little active screen time. Reduced it's location access to only when the app is running and problem solved. This is a bug. Latest version keeps the phone processor cranking constantly even when other apps are in the foreground or phone is asleep.
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.
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.
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??

by josephmo87 on 2019/10/23 13:07
Who made this app? I think they hired a couple of community college drop outs to design it. I work outside for a living and can never count on this app. Radar just won’t load sometimes. Forecast is useless. It’ll show 0% chance of rain and then will be raining. Constantly sends me useless weather warnings that never happen. When the radar does load it’s inaccurate. I’ve had big red blobs over me on the radar but no rain. The search continues for a working weather app.

Accurate! NOT!
by GJnz74 on 2019/10/23 06:25
The app will be indicating no rain, but graphics are showing a downpour The circle graph will be indicating a drenching rain for the next 30 minutes when there is not a cloud in the sky. What’s happened to the banner alert on the top of the main screen. Also the settings indicate the light/dark color option is automatic. I have yet to see the preferred dark screen. The text and graphics colors disappear on the white screen for the visually impaired. Bring back the black screen please. The accuracy of the location is never right. At best it will indicate my location as being 3 blocks away from my home. Frequently it is indicating a location at a shopping mall 2 miles away from my home. In my city there may be rain in one part of town, snow across town and blue skies with 20 mph winds in another area just 3-4 miles away.

The app worked reliably for a long time, but recent updates crash randomly on launch. At one point I thought it had to do with being connected by wifi, but it crashes even then. If i can get the application to launch successfully it provides the information I am looking for. But if I can’t count on it launching, the app is of no use.

Good app, bad complication
by Gloaming1974 on 2019/10/22 15:45
The app itself is wonderful! I’ve been using it for a few weeks now and haven’t had a single issue. The forecast also seems very accurate. My beef is with the watch complication. 90% of the time it tells me it’s 54 degrees out—even if it’s 34 or 75. When I tap on it to open the Accuweather screen on my watch, all I see is my city name with dashes everywhere. If I go to my phone, everything is working fine. Also, it would be nice if I didn’t have to constantly get my reading glasses out to read that it’s 54 degrees out (although since it rarely is, why am I looking in the first place?). It would be nice if (a) the temperature reading on the watch was accurate and (b) there was a option to have it just show the temperature. My eyes at 45 years old are apparently too old to make this complication worthwhile.

by Jazziesy on 2019/10/22 12:29
I like the app a lot but have one curious question why would anyone want to see the "past" radar picture? Sometimes your screens do not say the same thing. For example it's telling me it's going to rain in 75 minutes yet the hourly forecast shows cloudy? There are times when radar shows rain yet I see no rain.
Good and Stable
by JessLM02 on 2019/10/22 12:25
App is stable and provides an overall good snapshot of the weather. Would be 5 stars but I knocked a star off because you have to dig to get the wind direction for more than the current day. Other that it provides all the info I need.

Constant nagging to rate app. I’ll rate it when I feel like not when I’m annoyed into rating. In addition, this app needs more control of what alerts you receive. I was receiving useless alerts which do not affect me, where I am or where I live until I finally said enough and turned them off.

Excellent APP and I love it. It’s my usual go to. However, weather maps are a disappointment. Very slow to load as compared to competitors, improve this and the APP would be near perfect.

The Myers family that owns Accuweather get there information from NOAA but want NOAA to stop making there information available to the public. The Myers have been complaining in the media that they are in direct competition with NOAA and that the government shouldn’t have there weather info available to the public. Barry Myers has been nominatedby Trump two times to head the NOAA weather department and rejected, now nominated a third time! which then will only hamper NOAA and benefit Accuweather. Check the facts at Wikipedia

Unfortunately I updated this app tonight. Ugh. I’m so disappointed!!! I use accuweather every day to decide how to properly care for my horses. This app was perfect. Now ads block the screen so I had to buy your upgrade to remove the ads. And the minute cast is not able to stay open. I have to go to your unnecessary first screen then choose the minute cast.
Amazing app sometimes doesn’t have the best accuracy
by Estevan Guerrero on 2019/10/21 01:33
This app is amazing and i use it all the time to see how i needs to go dressed for my games and also if I'm going practice our coach uses this to to tell us if practice is changed to a different location I love it and i would not use any other weather service beside this one. Apps do sometimes come with flaws like when it is raining and the weather app says that it is clear and on other weather apps the weather is precise, this has happened twice now a little annoying but rarely happens. Another thing is the app will use a city or a town that is twenty to thirty miles out this happens at least ten present of the time with gets annoying but I've seen it happen with other weather apps so I'm not to upset other that that this app is the best and i would highly recommend using this weather app.

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!
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
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.

I get the MOST ACCURATE weather from this App ! Many weather channels & apps to choose from . I use to go by other sources , but most of them never told me the REAL WEATHER ,LIKE ACCUWEATHER DOES .It also gives more information about what to except on Winds ,Rain , Snow , and with Hourly , Daily or Weekly . So when it’s time for a Vacation or just going out shopping for the Day , I know exactly what to wear , and what items , like a Umbrella or Jacket for the cooler weather in the evening. I Have DELETED ALL MY OTHER WEATHER APPS with mistrusted details ! This one App tells me everything I need for any Outing .Makes my Days Happy , when I’m prepared .Went to Family Reunion, Very Nice Warm 80’s Weather , until the middle of outside Reunion. It started to pour down the rain , and chilled off quickly .I had a change of warmer clothes ,and raincoat & rainboots ,with a Umbrella in my Car .Sure made me tell everyone about Accuweather ,when they all kept asking me , how did you know to be prepared for a such a sudden change ! I felt like I was the Smartest Person Out Of the Whole Family ! Thank You Accuweather , you are my Daily Best Friend ! Shelley H .
“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.
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.
Almost There
by Gamer3475 on 2019/09/13 01:49
I really like the app overall. It loads fast when you open the app (stopped using the Weather Channel app because of very slow loading time). All the info I want is right up front in one view. I like the rain estimates. The radar is the only place that I think the app is lacking. It shows watches and warnings boxes but completely separate from the radar. You can’t overlay the two to get the full context. If the watches and warnings boxes could be overlayed on top of the radar that would be great. I did use the in app contact feature to send a message about this and I was very pleasantly surprised to receive a response the same day just 5 or so hours later. I honestly didn’t even expect a response. Hopefully they will take the suggestion seriously. One other lesser suggestion regarding the radar would be a storm tracks feature. I’ve seen this in other apps where they show a predicted track for a storm cell or parts of a larger storm line. Different color tracks mean different types of storms.
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.
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.

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. 🤬.
Very clean
by capreecious on 2019/08/31 18:39
I think the site is very nice maybe too nice. For the Ocala Villages area many are older and I think when I make the age group I will want things easier. How I can understand is I am a disabled veteran with TBI so short term is effected and my motor skills are 10 years past my present age. So no guessing game just show what is going to happen. I can predict the weather from current radar better than you using the ad method and please it is obvious it is there. The catch the eye but in this instance you are messing with the parents worrying of children and children yes we mostly just watch an episode or so and come back later so you are not getting any profit of anything quantitative value when if you kept people of my watching and placing those ads, well you will see ads soar and we are retired. We will want certain things protection of our family more check ln on news both current and post. Stocks. You have lost old style news it sold .
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
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!
Amazing app sometimes doesn’t have the best accuracy
by Estevan Guerrero on 2019/10/21 01:33
This app is amazing and i use it all the time to see how i needs to go dressed for my games and also if I'm going practice our coach uses this to to tell us if practice is changed to a different location I love it and i would not use any other weather service beside this one. Apps do sometimes come with flaws like when it is raining and the weather app says that it is clear and on other weather apps the weather is precise, this has happened twice now a little annoying but rarely happens. Another thing is the app will use a city or a town that is twenty to thirty miles out this happens at least ten present of the time with gets annoying but I've seen it happen with other weather apps so I'm not to upset other that that this app is the best and i would highly recommend using this weather app.
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.
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!!!
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.
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!!!
Excessive background execution
by mountainman3520 on 2018/12/10 03:51
This is a pretty good weather app. Accuracy not perfect but better than many others. Good info obscured by lots of junk, but not more than many others. New issue is that it asked and I approved it always using my location. Mistake! My iphone X has been running hot and having short battery life. Eventually dug in and found that AccuWeather has been running for hours on the background, pushing it to the top user of battery despite very little active screen time. Reduced it's location access to only when the app is running and problem solved. This is a bug. Latest version keeps the phone processor cranking constantly even when other apps are in the foreground or phone is asleep.
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.
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.
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??
