The radar doesn’t always load and when it does it takes forever to do so.
Good weather app!!

This app is more accurate than the weather channel. I like how it gives me a few more days of weather in advance .

App shuts off podcasts sells data w/o transparency
by howlandster on 2020/02/16 22:44
If I'm listening to a podcast and open Accuweather it stops the podcast completely. To restart the podcast I have to exit Accuweather and reopen the podcast app (I've tried several different ones doesn't make a difference -- Accuweather hijacks the audio) and restart, which is extremely annoying and disruptive. I have not figured out how to stop it from doing this. Stick with Dark Sky or the built-in iOS weather app, neither of which hijack your audio feed (without playing content).
Best app!
by Maze & Blue on 2020/02/16 22:42
I recommend this App. to everyone. Very accurate!! If you need to know what’s going on, this is the weather app. to get.
Good App
by Weather_Watcher_55467 on 2020/02/16 21:50
Overall, really good app. So far you haven’t “fixed” what isn’t broken like your competition did (WeatherUnderground). Feature Request: Would like the option to select the theme - Light/Dark/Auto - manually though. I don’t care for the light theme much and kept it on dark, regardless of the phones theme, before the option was removed.

I consider myself fortunate to be able to have the Accuweather app in an iPad , a mobile phone, and an apple minitower connected to a smart tv. Before I venture outside of my home, I check the app in order to plan a day hour by hour. Thanks for offering Accuweather at no cost. The weather does not scare me anymore.

感觉不太好
by 不太好00d on 2020/02/16 08:20
It doesn't feel good. You can only see the weather notifications in the notifications when you open the software. If you don't open the software, you can't see the notifications. Why can't the software push notifications? No one answered your call, emailed you a rejection, I can only come here to comment ... 感觉不太好,只有打开这个软件才可以在通知那里看到天气通知,如果你不打开这个软件是没有办法看到通知的,为什么软件不能推送通知呢?给你们打电话没有人接听,给你们发邮件拒收,我只能来这里评论了…

Just my opinion
by w2much on 2020/02/15 16:59
For me this site works. Quick accurate local or not weather reports. Not a bunch of scrolling and surfing to get a simple report. Probably has all kinds of other features which I have not needed but as I said. Works for me. I have or have had it on quite a few devices over quite a few years.

Persistent failure
by Raantuva on 2020/02/14 17:52
Disruptive to background music and streaming apps. Why the f*** is this interrupting music‽ THERE IS NO SOUND IN THIS APP. WHAT IS GOING ON‽ ——— I am so sick and tired of getting severe weather alerts, opening them and being told there are none. Then getting another. And another and ANOTHER. ALL WITHIN AN HOUR. I chalked it up to a fluke the first couple of times this happened but I am really out of patience. I’m also sick of the app pulling a cached version of my local weather when I’m on GPS, wifi, and my phone and apps are all updated. This is a brand new phone and the same problems I was having with my 2 generations prior device have continued which means its your app. The design is outdated and ugly as well. I’m frustrated. I’ll just go back to using the website instead of getting a headache looking at this dumb thing.

Needs Air Quality on Home Page
by Madistang on 2020/02/13 19:25
The app really needs to add an air quality index on the home page by the humidity or wind indexes. The App has continually reported that it was going to snow in an hour or so when the temperature is in the 40s and we have clear skies. I am wondering WHERE the app is getting its data.

Mixed feelings
by MrKPlush on 2020/02/13 05:10
Accuweather has useful features such as the minutecast and a decent radar that plenty of other weather apps don’t have. The forecasts are decent most of the time but aren’t great other times. It is currently snowing in my area and has been for at least the past hour and the minutecast shows a snow shower in 34 minutes. I think looking out the window is a better option now. Snowfall recordings are often way off, yesterday we had 3 inches of snow and it registered as 0.2, but otherwise things are okay. 1/18/20: 2.5-3.0 inches of snow fell in my NE Ohio town and 0.2” was recorded 2/7/20: my town got 5-6” and 1.7” was recorded 2/12/20: 3.0 inches fell and none recorded.
Traveler
by F O S on 2020/02/13 03:14

by ACC Andy on 2020/02/12 16:26
Too general. Not specific when inclement weather will occur, late evening, daytime, or early evenings. How do you know if you will have 100% rain at 2 am or 2 pm?

Accu weather review
by cival1776 on 2020/02/12 15:16
A little clunky to use. Graphs are not very helpful. Need to click on the day to get the complete forecast. I don’t need to see so many days on the home screen. I would like more info there. Sun, precip, humidity, pollen, temps, wind, and overnight expectations, all in one spot for 2-3 days. Extended forecast can be on other pages. I want radar at the bottom of the home screen.
Ditched “WU” and much happier now!
by Gibbs_Rules on 2020/02/12 14:32
I am happy to have this running on both iPhone and iPad. Once I got used to the UI it’s now setup the way I like to scan my weather info. I like how I’m given the choice to move what I want where I want. It’s accurate, clean, and nice to look at. Not been buggy at all so far. Glad I finally gave up on WU and committed to something better.

What a great app there’s so much usable valuable information available right at your fingertips. What more could you ask for. This is truly a refreshing change from the weather channel app. If it was possible to give this 10 stars I would. Nice job.

It seems like alerts are the one thing that should be easy to view once you get a notification but you’ll tap all over the screen and not find out what impending doom is around the corner. Other than that, It’s a good phone and watch app and free. I use it several times a day

Love the app, the layout and all of the features that are available. Nothing is perfect, and I realize that, but it’s a little strange to have snowflakes falling when the sun is out in full force and there is no precipitation anywhere in the state or on the radar.
Love it!

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

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.
Updated (v13.0.4) Now Great UI; Very Accurate; Excellent, Responsive Support
by Steve_.W on 2020/01/13 23:21
AccuWeather has been for several versions and for many years now (13 Jan 2020) a great app—one of the best, most useful I’ve licensed (having paid for the ad-free upgrade). (I am embarrassed that I did not post an updated correction to my 2014 v7 review until today.) The user interface is clean, easy to use and understand. One can, with a little finesse, even create a location for which to see weather forecasts as specific as for an single address, road intersection, or place (eg, an outdoor stadium). I have found the forecasting to be incredibly accurate, sometimes to the minute! Last winter, this AccuWeather app predicted snow in 18 minutes, as I contemplated rushing from home to do an urgent errand. Exactly 18 minutes later, as I came outside, having finished, it started snowing as I walked to my car—awesome! I have played soccer outdoors for 25 years. Rain timing predictions have rarely been wrong. When AccuWeather forecast rain between 8pm and 9pm, such almost always occurred. (My league’s games are typically 7pm to 8:45pm, once weekly, 40 weeks each year, so I’ve experienced several hundred such accurate timing forecasts.) Support is truly exceptional. For the few occasions when I’ve had questions, e-mail has been answered quickly, specifically and thoughtfully. I highly recommend paying for this app—my money has been well spent.
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.
Oddly sluggish on iPhone XS Max
by iflyimpilot on 2020/01/08 05:17
I've been back and forth with the AccuWeather app. Ever since I upgraded to an iPhone XS Max from an iPhone 7 Plus, the app appears choppy -- most noticeably when there is a background animation (rain, snow, etc.). When I swipe up from the bottom to bring up the hourly/daily forecasts, the animation of the tab sliding up is very choppy. As is with the hourly forecasts when swiping left/right to view the hourly conditions. it just doesn't have an optimized feel. Funny, because this app runs buttery smooth on my old iPhone 7 Plus. I reached out to support several months ago when I first noticed the issue and was told it would be "mentioned to the dev team". About 7 or so revisions of the app, the same choppiness exists. Not sure if this is an issue with the XS Max in particular and the app not being optimized for this particular phone but I've tried uninstalling/reinstalling the app multiple times, force closing the app, hard rebooting my phone, and anything else I can think of. Hopefully the devs see my review as this is one of the best weather apps currently out there and I'd hate to ditch this app for this reason.
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.
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.
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.
Good app, bad complication
by Gloaming1974 on 2019/11/10 22:03
The app itself is ok. I’ve been using it for a few weeks now, and the only problem is that every once in a while, the app just shows dashes. My city name is in the upper left hand corner, but there is no data. The forecast also seems pretty accurate most of the time. My biggest beef is with the watch complication. Half the time it doesn’t even show up on my watch. There’s just a blank spot. And when it does show up, 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.
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. 🤬.
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.
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 👌
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 .
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.
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
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.
Love, but type of ads puts me off
by Kmc1536 on 2019/12/09 13:41
I’ve really been enjoying the most recent version of the app. I live in the Upper Midwest, and it’s very helpful to see the percentages for various snow accumulations. It’s snowing this morning, and I was using the app when I noticed an ad that at its heart is not political but is using politics as clickbait. It says, “Trump is on a roll. Trump ends another Obama era program.” Every time I go into the app, it’s the same ad with different images. It makes me not want to use the app. Why should I have to see this type of ad when I want to see the weather? It makes me think of actual regulations that our president has torched, including regulations that address climate change—something that actually concerns weather. And that makes me sad and angry. And hopeless about the earth’s future. Get more appropriate, less National Enquirer-type ads if you want my eyeballs. I won’t use the app the rest of the month. There are other weather apps that I can use.
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.

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

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”....?!$&@????!!!
Problems with map since last update and
by Dm156 on 2018/09/05 18:26
in general you can't count on the weather predictions. Because I live in south Texas I know it's gonna be hot but I'd like to be able to rely on predictions regarding rain and especially storms. Yesterday for example, I received 2 red alerts for oncoming storms; however, I nary a drop fell from the bright blue sky. As for the radar maps, since the latest update, when you put the map in motion there are some vague green muddled areas that come and go in a flash and the usual patterns of rain movement jump or start and stop altogether. In the past the rain patterns jumping has happened when either PAST or FUTURE was first started up in motion but if you waited a bit, the rain moved in an expected way (i.e., N, S, E or W). Am considering replacing this app with another one.
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.
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.
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...
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.
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!!!
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!
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.
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.
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.

App shuts off podcasts sells data w/o transparency
by howlandster on 2020/02/16 22:44
If I'm listening to a podcast and open Accuweather it stops the podcast completely. To restart the podcast I have to exit Accuweather and reopen the podcast app (I've tried several different ones doesn't make a difference -- Accuweather hijacks the audio) and restart, which is extremely annoying and disruptive. I have not figured out how to stop it from doing this. Stick with Dark Sky or the built-in iOS weather app, neither of which hijack your audio feed (without playing content).
Best app!
by Maze & Blue on 2020/02/16 22:42

by Weather_Watcher_55467 on 2020/02/16 21:50
Overall, really good app. So far you haven’t “fixed” what isn’t broken like your competition did (WeatherUnderground). Feature Request: Would like the option to select the theme - Light/Dark/Auto - manually though. I don’t care for the light theme much and kept it on dark, regardless of the phones theme, before the option was removed.

It doesn't feel good. You can only see the weather notifications in the notifications when you open the software. If you don't open the software, you can't see the notifications. Why can't the software push notifications? No one answered your call, emailed you a rejection, I can only come here to comment ... 感觉不太好,只有打开这个软件才可以在通知那里看到天气通知,如果你不打开这个软件是没有办法看到通知的,为什么软件不能推送通知呢?给你们打电话没有人接听,给你们发邮件拒收,我只能来这里评论了…

For me this site works. Quick accurate local or not weather reports. Not a bunch of scrolling and surfing to get a simple report. Probably has all kinds of other features which I have not needed but as I said. Works for me. I have or have had it on quite a few devices over quite a few years.

by Raantuva on 2020/02/14 17:52
Disruptive to background music and streaming apps. Why the f*** is this interrupting music‽ THERE IS NO SOUND IN THIS APP. WHAT IS GOING ON‽ ——— I am so sick and tired of getting severe weather alerts, opening them and being told there are none. Then getting another. And another and ANOTHER. ALL WITHIN AN HOUR. I chalked it up to a fluke the first couple of times this happened but I am really out of patience. I’m also sick of the app pulling a cached version of my local weather when I’m on GPS, wifi, and my phone and apps are all updated. This is a brand new phone and the same problems I was having with my 2 generations prior device have continued which means its your app. The design is outdated and ugly as well. I’m frustrated. I’ll just go back to using the website instead of getting a headache looking at this dumb thing.

Needs Air Quality on Home Page
by Madistang on 2020/02/13 19:25
The app really needs to add an air quality index on the home page by the humidity or wind indexes. The App has continually reported that it was going to snow in an hour or so when the temperature is in the 40s and we have clear skies. I am wondering WHERE the app is getting its data.

Accuweather has useful features such as the minutecast and a decent radar that plenty of other weather apps don’t have. The forecasts are decent most of the time but aren’t great other times. It is currently snowing in my area and has been for at least the past hour and the minutecast shows a snow shower in 34 minutes. I think looking out the window is a better option now. Snowfall recordings are often way off, yesterday we had 3 inches of snow and it registered as 0.2, but otherwise things are okay. 1/18/20: 2.5-3.0 inches of snow fell in my NE Ohio town and 0.2” was recorded 2/7/20: my town got 5-6” and 1.7” was recorded 2/12/20: 3.0 inches fell and none recorded.

Was good before they changed the entire layout. Now, you have to dig for current conditions and it shows up in a circular bar you have to rotate throughout. Very counter intuitive now.

When will it rain?
by ACC Andy on 2020/02/12 16:26
Too general. Not specific when inclement weather will occur, late evening, daytime, or early evenings. How do you know if you will have 100% rain at 2 am or 2 pm?

Accu weather review
by cival1776 on 2020/02/12 15:16
A little clunky to use. Graphs are not very helpful. Need to click on the day to get the complete forecast. I don’t need to see so many days on the home screen. I would like more info there. Sun, precip, humidity, pollen, temps, wind, and overnight expectations, all in one spot for 2-3 days. Extended forecast can be on other pages. I want radar at the bottom of the home screen.
Ditched “WU” and much happier now!
by Gibbs_Rules on 2020/02/12 14:32
I am happy to have this running on both iPhone and iPad. Once I got used to the UI it’s now setup the way I like to scan my weather info. I like how I’m given the choice to move what I want where I want. It’s accurate, clean, and nice to look at. Not been buggy at all so far. Glad I finally gave up on WU and committed to something better.
Opening App Pauses Music

What a great app there’s so much usable valuable information available right at your fingertips. What more could you ask for. This is truly a refreshing change from the weather channel app. If it was possible to give this 10 stars I would. Nice job.

Alerts still hard to navigate
by bluemeanieface on 2020/02/11 21:39
It seems like alerts are the one thing that should be easy to view once you get a notification but you’ll tap all over the screen and not find out what impending doom is around the corner. Other than that, It’s a good phone and watch app and free. I use it several times a day

My only complaint is that the weather for the US Air Force base is showing weather for Colorado Springs.

Love the app, the layout and all of the features that are available. Nothing is perfect, and I realize that, but it’s a little strange to have snowflakes falling when the sun is out in full force and there is no precipitation anywhere in the state or on the radar.
Love it!

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

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.

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 !

“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.
Updated (v13.0.4) Now Great UI; Very Accurate; Excellent, Responsive Support
by Steve_.W on 2020/01/13 23:21
AccuWeather has been for several versions and for many years now (13 Jan 2020) a great app—one of the best, most useful I’ve licensed (having paid for the ad-free upgrade). (I am embarrassed that I did not post an updated correction to my 2014 v7 review until today.) The user interface is clean, easy to use and understand. One can, with a little finesse, even create a location for which to see weather forecasts as specific as for an single address, road intersection, or place (eg, an outdoor stadium). I have found the forecasting to be incredibly accurate, sometimes to the minute! Last winter, this AccuWeather app predicted snow in 18 minutes, as I contemplated rushing from home to do an urgent errand. Exactly 18 minutes later, as I came outside, having finished, it started snowing as I walked to my car—awesome! I have played soccer outdoors for 25 years. Rain timing predictions have rarely been wrong. When AccuWeather forecast rain between 8pm and 9pm, such almost always occurred. (My league’s games are typically 7pm to 8:45pm, once weekly, 40 weeks each year, so I’ve experienced several hundred such accurate timing forecasts.) Support is truly exceptional. For the few occasions when I’ve had questions, e-mail has been answered quickly, specifically and thoughtfully. I highly recommend paying for this app—my money has been well spent.
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.
Oddly sluggish on iPhone XS Max
by iflyimpilot on 2020/01/08 05:17
I've been back and forth with the AccuWeather app. Ever since I upgraded to an iPhone XS Max from an iPhone 7 Plus, the app appears choppy -- most noticeably when there is a background animation (rain, snow, etc.). When I swipe up from the bottom to bring up the hourly/daily forecasts, the animation of the tab sliding up is very choppy. As is with the hourly forecasts when swiping left/right to view the hourly conditions. it just doesn't have an optimized feel. Funny, because this app runs buttery smooth on my old iPhone 7 Plus. I reached out to support several months ago when I first noticed the issue and was told it would be "mentioned to the dev team". About 7 or so revisions of the app, the same choppiness exists. Not sure if this is an issue with the XS Max in particular and the app not being optimized for this particular phone but I've tried uninstalling/reinstalling the app multiple times, force closing the app, hard rebooting my phone, and anything else I can think of. Hopefully the devs see my review as this is one of the best weather apps currently out there and I'd hate to ditch this app for this reason.
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.
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.
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.
Good app, bad complication

The app itself is ok. I’ve been using it for a few weeks now, and the only problem is that every once in a while, the app just shows dashes. My city name is in the upper left hand corner, but there is no data. The forecast also seems pretty accurate most of the time. My biggest beef is with the watch complication. Half the time it doesn’t even show up on my watch. There’s just a blank spot. And when it does show up, 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.
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. 🤬.
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.
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 👌
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 .
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.
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
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.
Love, but type of ads puts me off
by Kmc1536 on 2019/12/09 13:41
I’ve really been enjoying the most recent version of the app. I live in the Upper Midwest, and it’s very helpful to see the percentages for various snow accumulations. It’s snowing this morning, and I was using the app when I noticed an ad that at its heart is not political but is using politics as clickbait. It says, “Trump is on a roll. Trump ends another Obama era program.” Every time I go into the app, it’s the same ad with different images. It makes me not want to use the app. Why should I have to see this type of ad when I want to see the weather? It makes me think of actual regulations that our president has torched, including regulations that address climate change—something that actually concerns weather. And that makes me sad and angry. And hopeless about the earth’s future. Get more appropriate, less National Enquirer-type ads if you want my eyeballs. I won’t use the app the rest of the month. There are other weather apps that I can use.
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”....?!$&@????!!!
Problems with map since last update and
by Dm156 on 2018/09/05 18:26
in general you can't count on the weather predictions. Because I live in south Texas I know it's gonna be hot but I'd like to be able to rely on predictions regarding rain and especially storms. Yesterday for example, I received 2 red alerts for oncoming storms; however, I nary a drop fell from the bright blue sky. As for the radar maps, since the latest update, when you put the map in motion there are some vague green muddled areas that come and go in a flash and the usual patterns of rain movement jump or start and stop altogether. In the past the rain patterns jumping has happened when either PAST or FUTURE was first started up in motion but if you waited a bit, the rain moved in an expected way (i.e., N, S, E or W). Am considering replacing this app with another one.
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.
MST David Begley disability retirement
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.
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.
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...
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.
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!!!
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!
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.
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.
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.
