global storms
Description
global storms provides the latest severe weather information including: - hurricanes, typhoons and tropical storms in the Atlantic, Pacific and Indian oceans - worldwide animated satellite views - the latest worldwide marine information - the ultraviolet index - US mainland storms, including the latest tornado and severe thunderstorm alerts - animated radar for the US - animated US forecast chart - global climate imagery - space weather Information in the app is courtesy of various open government sources as indicated in each section. Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life. There is an auto-renewing subscription option within the app to track worldwide tropical cyclones, typhoons, hurricanes and other global weather hazards, and comprehensive ocean conditions forecasts for the Atlantic and Pacific oceans. Development of global storms is funded in part by ads, which can be removed by selecting the monthly auto-renewing subscription option "Remove Ads" from the app's settings menu. Removing ads also provides access to other premium content and features. The subscription price of 0.99 USD (in your local currency) will be charged to your iTunes account at confirmation of purchase and, for each renewal, within 24 hours prior to the end of the current month. You can cancel the subscription at any time through your iTunes account settings, but you must do so at least 24 hours before the end of the current month to avoid being charged, and ads will show again at the start of the subsequent month.

Ads galore

Too many ads at beginning that delay seeing info.
Drained phone 20% while not in use, won’t let me turn it off
by BobbyTheGamer on 2019/09/24 11:45
This app has decided it wants to run 24/7 in the background. Tried to turn off location services, and it won’t let me. So basically the app hijacks the phone. 22 hr 30 min of the last 24 hours in screen time shows this app was running. I haven’t intentionally used this app in months.
Adds subscription is bugging

Very informative, very accurate always allow you to get prepared if necessary . Having this information is a must this time of year. Thanks to everyone at noaa.
Beware
by Dizky on 2019/09/10 12:16
Advertising is politically biased. I’m not sure this app is American based. I deleted it.
Politics ads
by Sue4566 on 2019/09/04 21:37
The app itself is interesting, but every time I open it I’m getting an ad asking for me to support immigration crackdowns and “don’t tread on me” symbols. Maybe it’s just a paying advertiser, or maybe it’s the developer pushing they’re agenda, but I’m not interested in supporting that.
WAY TO INVASIVE ADS
by He-Who-Hates-Annoying-Ads on 2019/09/03 12:31
Over time the ads get progressively “pushy”— first easy to dismiss, then taking over screen, then taking over screen with sound. Then it wasn’t, easy to see how to dismiss them. I felt like I was being harassed into paying to get rid of them. I do pay for many of the apps I use, but this is not an app I need. So they annoyed me into deleting it.

Are you kidding me
by JHawk8 on 2019/09/02 00:07
I’m in Florida, trying to get info from this app and each time it takes me to a advertisement video. Really...a Cat5 coming in and you use advertisement instead of the life saving info we need. Bye
Extremely poor
by MizMM on 2019/09/01 23:31
This app tries to force you to pay to remove ads even if you don’t mind ads by removing features as well. The app maker should simply not offer a free version if what they actually intend is a paid version. I resent the strong arm tactics to pretend that they offer a free version when in fact all they want to do is threaten you with removal of features if you don’t pay “to remove ads.” What they mean is that it is a trial version of a paid app and not a free app. They should say what they mean instead of pretending otherwise. Being straightforward is more impressive to me than lying. So I am going to delete this app. It doesn’t do anything I can’t get from another app anyway.

Ads on a paid app! 👎🏻
by etropsis on 2019/08/24 16:39
I purchased this app when it was called NOAA NOW. I guess it’s been bought out, because now it is back to multiple ads that play until they time out. Very disappointed that I’m forced to watch ads now on a paid app or else pay a monthly fee. 👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻
My opinion!

Continuously fighting ads trying to use app.

All info is there. Including maps etc. but occasionally I cannot navigate easily. Not intuitive enough. Otherwise I’d give it 5 stars.
Hawaii is Not a US State
by ReconMarine911 on 2019/06/05 12:03
Apparently, NOAA does not know that Hawaii is the 50th State and therefore is not recognized anymore! I originally downloaded this app it still had Hawaii on it but NO, not anymore! Don’t waste your time with this app!

**AVOID ITS A SCAM**
by TrueReview12 on 2019/04/26 04:07
**Update** CS refuses to respond to emails. Stay away from any of this companies apps. They just want your money. Do not subscribe to anything or turn on location services or notifications. This new company has now started scamming people for information that’s available on NOAA website. The previous owner of NOAA Now used to have a $9.99 fully functional app called NOAA now pro. They discontinued the paid version so that they can make more money by charging a reoccurring monthly fee to remove the bloat ware that they added to the free app. Don’t support these companies that offer a paid full version then take it away and only offer a subscription to get rid of the rubbish. Don’t download it even though it’s free because you’re only going to encourage other app developers with paid apps to do the same. That’s how in app purchases and games that only require a data connection started. Don’t help them start another disaster!!
not impressed
by done w/names on 2019/04/19 16:38
Set this up for my area—SE—and it would only show Pacific, not Atlantic side or anywhere close to where I live. I did press “allow location while using” and still would not pick it up.
Review on this app
by donnamo05 on 2019/04/12 04:15
I just installed without reading the comments first!!!! I’m getting out of the App Store right now and definitely going to uninstall this app because the most recent message said that although they had it where the app could use their location while they were using the app(the app actually kept keeping up with their location) BEWARE!!! I should have known better! I’ve got into all kinds of trouble for not reading the comments before buying but I never thought to look at the comments on a free app before installing!

App ok but too many google ads

The app works well once you get through the google ads on the front page and before you open any inner pages. Not appreciated on a weather app.

This is not from NOAA but from a 3rd party. Continual ads that are almost impossible to close. Can get info directly from the NOAA site. This is a waste of time and a very frustrating app. Would give it zero stars if I could.

Third party scraping weather data from NOAA.
Very disappointed
by jabilello on 2018/09/12 15:39
I was looking for NOAA hurricane information.. projected track, wind speed probabilities, etc that you find on the NOAA Hurricane Center web page.. so, all the pretty pictures they have in their ad just are not available in this app... only gives satellite images (which are pretty, but not very informative), and the text updates that are releases 4x per day (they are informative, but a lot of info to sift through).. there is other information , but hurricane info is very limited.. so disappointed..
Very glitchy
by Wynn621 on 2018/09/12 12:21
Don’t download, this is a very glitchy app. Doesn’t add any content. Just go to the NOAA website.

Climate Change
by Jim the Kiwi on 2018/09/11 12:20
Though I readily agree that massive global fossil fuel use will have an effect I find that the smug statements of empirical fact that are presented as certainty without bothering to be intellectually honest and discuss the full range of data are repulsive and likely will cause pushback If the people running NOAA preserve their credibility they would achieve more
Clumsy app; too many full page popup ads
by badkitty_ on 2018/09/11 12:13
First, the information is clumsily spread out over multiple pages. There is no one central page that will show you all hurricane activity in the Atlantic, for example. Second, while navigating from one submenu to another, you will be greeted with multiple full page popup ads unsolicited.You don’t get to choose for the ads to stay at the bottom of the screen. They open unannounced and take over the screen. Third, once you are in one of the submenus, good luck getting back to the main page.The app is very clumsy in design and had no “at a glance” feature. It is okay if you are desperate but you will get more info and less ads by just visiting NOAA’s website in your browser.
Not as expected

Great data. Would be nice to separate the graphics from the text somewhat as lay person more interested in graphics.
Full screen pop up ads
by wandering9 on 2018/09/10 13:16
Doesn't deserve the one star. Banner ads are one thing, multiple full screen pop ads that are difficult to dismiss make this app useless
Ads
by Dirtyd23 on 2018/09/10 11:45
Too many adds. Being associated with NOAA you think ads would be non-existent. Should keep associated topics together, example, Hurricane x with Hurricane x, and so on. Looking for updates can be difficult
I can’t handle the ads
by 1bean2 on 2018/09/10 09:02
You can’t even see what the apps is before being bombarded with ads. Ads as soon as you open the app.
Clunky and dated page design
by PJC57 on 2018/09/10 07:18
No flow to this app. Not intuitive. Every time the site is opened, the user has to read the entire page to process next click to get to data. Once finally there, information is very good though. Respectfully, a definite “re-do” is needed.
Not as advertised
by rdugu on 2018/09/09 17:00
When selecting the app, examples shown were actual images of the “cone of uncertainty”. After opening the downloaded app, it was all text.
Nope! Now.
by Catfish1112 on 2018/09/09 03:36
Nope. Uh-uh. Won’t recommend. We currently have a potential Cat 4 hurricane bearing and I can’t navigate past ads for Final Fantasy and some tiki monkey junk. App is phenomenal if you wanna know if it’ll snow on Christmas Day, but if you life depends on it. Heck, I’ll stick with the local meteorologists. I gave a second star for that time years ago when I could depend on NOAA.
Ads do not need to be on this app!
by Palmetto Swamp Fox on 2018/09/08 20:10
When such an important app which provides info regarding major storms, it is in poor taste to have long ads or even video game ads that last sixty seconds or greater. Especially when you are trying to get current info. This one is getting deleted! One ⭐️😡😡😡

by vfc19631 on 2018/09/08 17:28
NOAA weather alerts, and forecast, are very helpful, and it keeps you updated on the latest tropical cyclone, winter advisory, or any inclement weather systems, to help keep you safe.
Beware. This app is sketchy

Right away it pops up asking to share your data with 3rd parties. Why?! Apple should remove this from the App Store. Now deleted.

Ads RUIN it
by CaliBirds on 2018/09/03 12:52
They have video adds that take over you’re whole screen just for toggling through the app. NOAA is a government agency that we pay our tax dollars for. We shouldn’t have to give any more money to access this information without invasive ads and respect to our time. I’m deleting this crap.
Not a real NOAA app
by Tim-Gray on 2018/09/02 22:23
This is not affiliated with NOAA in any way. The misleading titles make you think it is. But all it does is link to already free data and sprinkle ads all over it. Do not install this thinking it is anything affiliated with the government weather agencies.

by Bud1058 on 2018/08/21 07:21
Originally this app had local radar, then after a short time, it was stopped, there are many pop up ads to deal with that cover the whole screen and you have to wait the time period with each one. Now it pops up with an ad for their new weather app which has weather radar. I won't get anything else from them, it's a bait and switch.
Hate ads with sound
by Janice_E on 2018/07/27 09:37
I used to really like this app and was willing to put up with the ads at the bottom. But in the last couple of days, when I open the app, a loud, raucous ad covers the page and I have to quickly close the app to avoid waking up anyone in the house or jarring my ears. I'll just go to the NHC from now on. I'm sorry they made this change.
Good App!
by Guaicar on 2018/07/08 03:32

Unusable Due to Ads

Nothing but ads
by Rychyrd on 2018/05/27 13:52
Nothing but ads. There is an option to get the “ad-free” version but the ads are so intrusive in this app that I can’t even get a feel for the app, or whether it is worth purchasing. Might have bout it outright but this feels kind of scammy, and since they thought it was ok to waste my time...
Good info but—-

by zxcvbnmlkjhgfdsaqweruop on 2018/05/26 18:27
There is to many commercial websites attached to your website. NOAA is government organization and as a taxpayer I object to these commercial harassments. We should be able to check the wx without commercials.

Provides satellite pictures and tropical storm locations, but thats about it. No true weather information like surface analysis, etc. Everything here can more easily be found on NOAA’s web site, just bookmark what you use.
Can’t get away from the adds!

L O V E this app . . .
by halb2524 on 2018/05/21 00:12
It is a safety item. Every time there is a weather or related watch, warning or whatever -- it shows up here. All of the information shows up. There are the complete NOAA texts, maps, references to addit'l info, if it exists, anything else relevant. I think I have 20 (+/-) weather apps between the iPad and iPhone. They change from time to time, depending on the app development, seasons, etc. But this app hasn't been deleted yet. The app is especially relevant during severe weather season here in the Midwest for tornadoes, hail, thunderstorms, flooding. Simple and relevant. Good.
Just the facts !!!
by jdfana on 2017/09/10 02:36
With this program you can check the weather any where in the world. It works almost instantaneously to give you either a written statement of the weather or you can look at the pretty pictures . Either way you get the latest update available for any where in the world.
Disengenuous - beware
by Gcoost on 2017/12/06 00:46
I was astonished to find that the app does NOT follow its own settings...when you first set it up, you are given three choices as a setting: (1) Never use your location (2) Use your location only while using app (3) Always use your location Well, I chose (2), because I thought it only fair that an application might need your location info while you are using it, so that it runs more efficiently or better, etc. However, after I left the application - stopping it, I noticed that I still have a banner running at the top of my screen which says,”NOAA Now is Actively Using Your Location. I went to the website to the privacy information located at the bottom of the page, and was informed that the company that runs and oh AAA now does not knowingly pass your personal information on to anyone. That being said, if that is the case then why does it need to run in the background, even when you have left the application and closed it? Because what it is telling you is not actually what it does. For that reason I am uninstalling this application and sending a notice to the Better Business Bureau about the company’s misrepresentation of its product. Caveat emptor - let the buyer beware (even though this application version it’s free)

They change from time to time, depending on the app development, seasons, etc. But this app hasn't been deleted yet. The app is especially relevant during severe weather season here in the Midwest for tornadoes, hail, thunderstorms, flooding. Simple and relevant. Good.
Changed
by Bud1058 on 2018/08/21 07:21
Originally this app had local radar, then after a short time, it was stopped, there are many pop up ads to deal with that cover the whole screen and you have to wait the time period with each one. Now it pops up with an ad for their new weather app which has weather radar. I won't get anything else from them, it's a bait and switch.

The information provided on the above subject is crucial to my family and myself. My family lives along the Jersey shore and I visit them frequently. Thank you for such updated information.
Amazing and accurate
by DKN01 on 2017/09/12 16:55
This was the most useful weather app during Hurricane Irma! Was able to advise loved ones and friends of her path and about when to expect it to start and finish.
I like to see what's going on in Fl. and no one gets killed.

I like to see what's going on in Florida because my bothers are down there. I just wish everyone good luck and hope no one gets killed. Love Todd
Extremely poor
by MizMM on 2019/09/01 23:31
This app tries to force you to pay to remove ads even if you don’t mind ads by removing features as well. The app maker should simply not offer a free version if what they actually intend is a paid version. I resent the strong arm tactics to pretend that they offer a free version when in fact all they want to do is threaten you with removal of features if you don’t pay “to remove ads.” What they mean is that it is a trial version of a paid app and not a free app. They should say what they mean instead of pretending otherwise. Being straightforward is more impressive to me than lying. So I am going to delete this app. It doesn’t do anything I can’t get from another app anyway.
Excellent but occasionally difficult to find items of interest
by Fabian3sg on 2019/07/11 01:24
All info is there. Including maps etc. but occasionally I cannot navigate easily. Not intuitive enough. Otherwise I’d give it 5 stars.

great information

I live and have a boat in an hurricane area, so great to be able to check quickly on potential hurricane issues. Truly a wonderful resource!!!!
Best info out there!
by friendlySons63 on 2017/09/06 14:09
The information you get from all your maps are incredible. I lived on the water and NOAA has never steered me wrong. Having this information is a life saver! God bless your pilots.

Great data. Would be nice to separate the graphics from the text somewhat as lay person more interested in graphics.
Now Is Useless so I Deleted It
by Mick Gator Fan on 2018/03/09 06:49
Used to be great with useful content. They started removing the most useful features a while ago. Now they've added pop-up ads when you select something. After you close the ad, you get one of the following errors: -Request timed out; -Site not found on server; -Cannot download image. So, I deleted the app. At least I could still do that.
Drained phone 20% while not in use, won’t let me turn it off
by BobbyTheGamer on 2019/09/24 11:45
This app has decided it wants to run 24/7 in the background. Tried to turn off location services, and it won’t let me. So basically the app hijacks the phone. 22 hr 30 min of the last 24 hours in screen time shows this app was running. I haven’t intentionally used this app in months.
Nope! Now.
by Catfish1112 on 2018/09/09 03:36
Nope. Uh-uh. Won’t recommend. We currently have a potential Cat 4 hurricane bearing and I can’t navigate past ads for Final Fantasy and some tiki monkey junk. App is phenomenal if you wanna know if it’ll snow on Christmas Day, but if you life depends on it. Heck, I’ll stick with the local meteorologists. I gave a second star for that time years ago when I could depend on NOAA.
Hate ads with sound
by Janice_E on 2018/07/27 09:37
I used to really like this app and was willing to put up with the ads at the bottom. But in the last couple of days, when I open the app, a loud, raucous ad covers the page and I have to quickly close the app to avoid waking up anyone in the house or jarring my ears. I'll just go to the NHC from now on. I'm sorry they made this change.

Clunky and dated page design
by PJC57 on 2018/09/10 07:18
No flow to this app. Not intuitive. Every time the site is opened, the user has to read the entire page to process next click to get to data. Once finally there, information is very good though. Respectfully, a definite “re-do” is needed.

WAY TO INVASIVE ADS
by He-Who-Hates-Annoying-Ads on 2019/09/03 12:31
Over time the ads get progressively “pushy”— first easy to dismiss, then taking over screen, then taking over screen with sound. Then it wasn’t, easy to see how to dismiss them. I felt like I was being harassed into paying to get rid of them. I do pay for many of the apps I use, but this is not an app I need. So they annoyed me into deleting it.

Valon C.Forbes (NOAA) review
by vfc19631 on 2018/09/08 17:28
NOAA weather alerts, and forecast, are very helpful, and it keeps you updated on the latest tropical cyclone, winter advisory, or any inclement weather systems, to help keep you safe.
Ads do not need to be on this app!
by Palmetto Swamp Fox on 2018/09/08 20:10
When such an important app which provides info regarding major storms, it is in poor taste to have long ads or even video game ads that last sixty seconds or greater. Especially when you are trying to get current info. This one is getting deleted! One ⭐️😡😡😡
Love it!
by Dblshrp on 2017/09/11 19:50
I always use the NOAA app. I use the satellite views often and go to it for severe weather updates. I trust NOAA more than the weather channel.
Ads RUIN it
by CaliBirds on 2018/09/03 12:52
They have video adds that take over you’re whole screen just for toggling through the app. NOAA is a government agency that we pay our tax dollars for. We shouldn’t have to give any more money to access this information without invasive ads and respect to our time. I’m deleting this crap.

Nothing but ads
by Rychyrd on 2018/05/27 13:52
Nothing but ads. There is an option to get the “ad-free” version but the ads are so intrusive in this app that I can’t even get a feel for the app, or whether it is worth purchasing. Might have bout it outright but this feels kind of scammy, and since they thought it was ok to waste my time...
Not very useful
by COSrunr on 2018/05/25 18:23
Provides satellite pictures and tropical storm locations, but thats about it. No true weather information like surface analysis, etc. Everything here can more easily be found on NOAA’s web site, just bookmark what you use.
Ads on a paid app! 👎🏻
by etropsis on 2019/08/24 16:39
I purchased this app when it was called NOAA NOW. I guess it’s been bought out, because now it is back to multiple ads that play until they time out. Very disappointed that I’m forced to watch ads now on a paid app or else pay a monthly fee. 👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻
Good App!
by Guaicar on 2018/07/08 03:32
We use a lot this app. Thanks for all the information. They keep us well informed.

Very user unfriendly
by Voltagesucks on 2017/09/16 20:43
If you are a meteorologist this might be easier to navigate because you would know what these things mean, but finding something like the predicted path and timetable is pretty tough
Ads and layout worse
by MT_Love on 2017/09/07 23:16
Ads you can't avoid and poor layout changes make the app less navigable and much more frustrating.
Frustrating ads
by FindMeInTheBay on 2018/04/16 12:53
Every time you click a menu you get an ad that takes ages to give you the x to close it. This app used to get five stars in my opinion, now I’m going to uninstall it because the ads outweigh any usefulness of the app.
A must have

Annoying ads but the best (and official) hurricane updates
Ads
by Dirtyd23 on 2018/09/10 11:45
Too many adds. Being associated with NOAA you think ads would be non-existent. Should keep associated topics together, example, Hurricane x with Hurricane x, and so on. Looking for updates can be difficult
Politics ads
by Sue4566 on 2019/09/04 21:37
The app itself is interesting, but every time I open it I’m getting an ad asking for me to support immigration crackdowns and “don’t tread on me” symbols. Maybe it’s just a paying advertiser, or maybe it’s the developer pushing they’re agenda, but I’m not interested in supporting that.

global storms
Description
global storms provides the latest severe weather information including: - hurricanes, typhoons and tropical storms in the Atlantic, Pacific and Indian oceans - worldwide animated satellite views - the latest worldwide marine information - the ultraviolet index - US mainland storms, including the latest tornado and severe thunderstorm alerts - animated radar for the US - animated US forecast chart - global climate imagery - space weather Information in the app is courtesy of various open government sources as indicated in each section. Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life. There is an auto-renewing subscription option within the app to track worldwide tropical cyclones, typhoons, hurricanes and other global weather hazards, and comprehensive ocean conditions forecasts for the Atlantic and Pacific oceans. Development of global storms is funded in part by ads, which can be removed by selecting the monthly auto-renewing subscription option "Remove Ads" from the app's settings menu. Removing ads also provides access to other premium content and features. The subscription price of 0.99 USD (in your local currency) will be charged to your iTunes account at confirmation of purchase and, for each renewal, within 24 hours prior to the end of the current month. You can cancel the subscription at any time through your iTunes account settings, but you must do so at least 24 hours before the end of the current month to avoid being charged, and ads will show again at the start of the subsequent month.

Really liked the graphics back during Wilma. Having a hard time finding the storms off Africa that eventually effect us in Boca/SFL. Can see some coming, but can no longer predict. I predicted Wilma hitting Boca 2 weeks out. Zero training....just 30 years plus watching path off Africa and impact on SFL.

Hawaii is Not a US State
by ReconMarine911 on 2019/06/05 12:03

**AVOID ITS A SCAM**
by TrueReview12 on 2019/04/26 04:07
**Update** CS refuses to respond to emails. Stay away from any of this companies apps. They just want your money. Do not subscribe to anything or turn on location services or notifications. This new company has now started scamming people for information that’s available on NOAA website. The previous owner of NOAA Now used to have a $9.99 fully functional app called NOAA now pro. They discontinued the paid version so that they can make more money by charging a reoccurring monthly fee to remove the bloat ware that they added to the free app. Don’t support these companies that offer a paid full version then take it away and only offer a subscription to get rid of the rubbish. Don’t download it even though it’s free because you’re only going to encourage other app developers with paid apps to do the same. That’s how in app purchases and games that only require a data connection started. Don’t help them start another disaster!!
not impressed
by done w/names on 2019/04/19 16:38

Review on this app
by donnamo05 on 2019/04/12 04:15
I just installed without reading the comments first!!!! I’m getting out of the App Store right now and definitely going to uninstall this app because the most recent message said that although they had it where the app could use their location while they were using the app(the app actually kept keeping up with their location) BEWARE!!! I should have known better! I’ve got into all kinds of trouble for not reading the comments before buying but I never thought to look at the comments on a free app before installing!

by jabilello on 2018/09/12 15:39
I was looking for NOAA hurricane information.. projected track, wind speed probabilities, etc that you find on the NOAA Hurricane Center web page.. so, all the pretty pictures they have in their ad just are not available in this app... only gives satellite images (which are pretty, but not very informative), and the text updates that are releases 4x per day (they are informative, but a lot of info to sift through).. there is other information , but hurricane info is very limited.. so disappointed..
Very glitchy
by Wynn621 on 2018/09/12 12:21
Don’t download, this is a very glitchy app. Doesn’t add any content. Just go to the NOAA website.

Clumsy app; too many full page popup ads
by badkitty_ on 2018/09/11 12:13
First, the information is clumsily spread out over multiple pages. There is no one central page that will show you all hurricane activity in the Atlantic, for example. Second, while navigating from one submenu to another, you will be greeted with multiple full page popup ads unsolicited.You don’t get to choose for the ads to stay at the bottom of the screen. They open unannounced and take over the screen. Third, once you are in one of the submenus, good luck getting back to the main page.The app is very clumsy in design and had no “at a glance” feature. It is okay if you are desperate but you will get more info and less ads by just visiting NOAA’s website in your browser.

by tyeuyft on 2018/09/10 16:31
You can’t even open a window without game ads popping up. I got a different hurricane ap for free with no ads. Not easy to navigate either.

Full screen pop up ads
by wandering9 on 2018/09/10 13:16
Doesn't deserve the one star. Banner ads are one thing, multiple full screen pop ads that are difficult to dismiss make this app useless
Ads
by Dirtyd23 on 2018/09/10 11:45
Too many adds. Being associated with NOAA you think ads would be non-existent. Should keep associated topics together, example, Hurricane x with Hurricane x, and so on. Looking for updates can be difficult
I can’t handle the ads
by 1bean2 on 2018/09/10 09:02
You can’t even see what the apps is before being bombarded with ads. Ads as soon as you open the app.
Clunky and dated page design
by PJC57 on 2018/09/10 07:18
No flow to this app. Not intuitive. Every time the site is opened, the user has to read the entire page to process next click to get to data. Once finally there, information is very good though. Respectfully, a definite “re-do” is needed.
Not as advertised
by rdugu on 2018/09/09 17:00
When selecting the app, examples shown were actual images of the “cone of uncertainty”. After opening the downloaded app, it was all text.
Nope! Now.
by Catfish1112 on 2018/09/09 03:36
Nope. Uh-uh. Won’t recommend. We currently have a potential Cat 4 hurricane bearing and I can’t navigate past ads for Final Fantasy and some tiki monkey junk. App is phenomenal if you wanna know if it’ll snow on Christmas Day, but if you life depends on it. Heck, I’ll stick with the local meteorologists. I gave a second star for that time years ago when I could depend on NOAA.
Ads do not need to be on this app!
by Palmetto Swamp Fox on 2018/09/08 20:10
When such an important app which provides info regarding major storms, it is in poor taste to have long ads or even video game ads that last sixty seconds or greater. Especially when you are trying to get current info. This one is getting deleted! One ⭐️😡😡😡

NOAA weather alerts, and forecast, are very helpful, and it keeps you updated on the latest tropical cyclone, winter advisory, or any inclement weather systems, to help keep you safe.
Beware. This app is sketchy
by Trout on 2018/09/08 11:21
Right away it pops up asking to share your data with 3rd parties. Why?! Apple should remove this from the App Store. Now deleted.

Graphics needed

Needs graphics to be intuitive.
Ads RUIN it
by CaliBirds on 2018/09/03 12:52
They have video adds that take over you’re whole screen just for toggling through the app. NOAA is a government agency that we pay our tax dollars for. We shouldn’t have to give any more money to access this information without invasive ads and respect to our time. I’m deleting this crap.
Not a real NOAA app
by Tim-Gray on 2018/09/02 22:23
This is not affiliated with NOAA in any way. The misleading titles make you think it is. But all it does is link to already free data and sprinkle ads all over it. Do not install this thinking it is anything affiliated with the government weather agencies.
Jeep Ads

by Bud1058 on 2018/08/21 07:21
Originally this app had local radar, then after a short time, it was stopped, there are many pop up ads to deal with that cover the whole screen and you have to wait the time period with each one. Now it pops up with an ad for their new weather app which has weather radar. I won't get anything else from them, it's a bait and switch.
Hate ads with sound
by Janice_E on 2018/07/27 09:37
I used to really like this app and was willing to put up with the ads at the bottom. But in the last couple of days, when I open the app, a loud, raucous ad covers the page and I have to quickly close the app to avoid waking up anyone in the house or jarring my ears. I'll just go to the NHC from now on. I'm sorry they made this change.
Good App!

Unusable Due to Ads

There is to many commercial websites attached to your website. NOAA is government organization and as a taxpayer I object to these commercial harassments. We should be able to check the wx without commercials.

Not very useful
by COSrunr on 2018/05/25 18:23
Provides satellite pictures and tropical storm locations, but thats about it. No true weather information like surface analysis, etc. Everything here can more easily be found on NOAA’s web site, just bookmark what you use.
Can’t get away from the adds!
by HawksterUSA on 2018/05/24 23:57
Adds pop up all the time, and it is impossible to close them. When you hit the “x” to close them, you are taken to the add!!!
L O V E this app . . .
by halb2524 on 2018/05/21 00:12
It is a safety item. Every time there is a weather or related watch, warning or whatever -- it shows up here. All of the information shows up. There are the complete NOAA texts, maps, references to addit'l info, if it exists, anything else relevant. I think I have 20 (+/-) weather apps between the iPad and iPhone. They change from time to time, depending on the app development, seasons, etc. But this app hasn't been deleted yet. The app is especially relevant during severe weather season here in the Midwest for tornadoes, hail, thunderstorms, flooding. Simple and relevant. Good.
Just the facts !!!
by jdfana on 2017/09/10 02:36
With this program you can check the weather any where in the world. It works almost instantaneously to give you either a written statement of the weather or you can look at the pretty pictures . Either way you get the latest update available for any where in the world.
Disengenuous - beware
by Gcoost on 2017/12/06 00:46
I was astonished to find that the app does NOT follow its own settings...when you first set it up, you are given three choices as a setting: (1) Never use your location (2) Use your location only while using app (3) Always use your location Well, I chose (2), because I thought it only fair that an application might need your location info while you are using it, so that it runs more efficiently or better, etc. However, after I left the application - stopping it, I noticed that I still have a banner running at the top of my screen which says,”NOAA Now is Actively Using Your Location. I went to the website to the privacy information located at the bottom of the page, and was informed that the company that runs and oh AAA now does not knowingly pass your personal information on to anyone. That being said, if that is the case then why does it need to run in the background, even when you have left the application and closed it? Because what it is telling you is not actually what it does. For that reason I am uninstalling this application and sending a notice to the Better Business Bureau about the company’s misrepresentation of its product. Caveat emptor - let the buyer beware (even though this application version it’s free)
**AVOID ITS A SCAM**
by TrueReview12 on 2019/04/26 04:07
**Update** CS refuses to respond to emails. Stay away from any of this companies apps. They just want your money. Do not subscribe to anything or turn on location services or notifications. This new company has now started scamming people for information that’s available on NOAA website. The previous owner of NOAA Now used to have a $9.99 fully functional app called NOAA now pro. They discontinued the paid version so that they can make more money by charging a reoccurring monthly fee to remove the bloat ware that they added to the free app. Don’t support these companies that offer a paid full version then take it away and only offer a subscription to get rid of the rubbish. Don’t download it even though it’s free because you’re only going to encourage other app developers with paid apps to do the same. That’s how in app purchases and games that only require a data connection started. Don’t help them start another disaster!!

Really liked the graphics back during Wilma. Having a hard time finding the storms off Africa that eventually effect us in Boca/SFL. Can see some coming, but can no longer predict. I predicted Wilma hitting Boca 2 weeks out. Zero training....just 30 years plus watching path off Africa and impact on SFL.
Review on this app
by donnamo05 on 2019/04/12 04:15
I just installed without reading the comments first!!!! I’m getting out of the App Store right now and definitely going to uninstall this app because the most recent message said that although they had it where the app could use their location while they were using the app(the app actually kept keeping up with their location) BEWARE!!! I should have known better! I’ve got into all kinds of trouble for not reading the comments before buying but I never thought to look at the comments on a free app before installing!
Very disappointed
by jabilello on 2018/09/12 15:39
I was looking for NOAA hurricane information.. projected track, wind speed probabilities, etc that you find on the NOAA Hurricane Center web page.. so, all the pretty pictures they have in their ad just are not available in this app... only gives satellite images (which are pretty, but not very informative), and the text updates that are releases 4x per day (they are informative, but a lot of info to sift through).. there is other information , but hurricane info is very limited.. so disappointed..

Extremely poor
by MizMM on 2019/09/01 23:31
This app tries to force you to pay to remove ads even if you don’t mind ads by removing features as well. The app maker should simply not offer a free version if what they actually intend is a paid version. I resent the strong arm tactics to pretend that they offer a free version when in fact all they want to do is threaten you with removal of features if you don’t pay “to remove ads.” What they mean is that it is a trial version of a paid app and not a free app. They should say what they mean instead of pretending otherwise. Being straightforward is more impressive to me than lying. So I am going to delete this app. It doesn’t do anything I can’t get from another app anyway.
Excellent but occasionally difficult to find items of interest

Now Is Useless so I Deleted It
by Mick Gator Fan on 2018/03/09 06:49
Used to be great with useful content. They started removing the most useful features a while ago. Now they've added pop-up ads when you select something. After you close the ad, you get one of the following errors: -Request timed out; -Site not found on server; -Cannot download image. So, I deleted the app. At least I could still do that.
Drained phone 20% while not in use, won’t let me turn it off
by BobbyTheGamer on 2019/09/24 11:45
This app has decided it wants to run 24/7 in the background. Tried to turn off location services, and it won’t let me. So basically the app hijacks the phone. 22 hr 30 min of the last 24 hours in screen time shows this app was running. I haven’t intentionally used this app in months.
Nope! Now.

by He-Who-Hates-Annoying-Ads on 2019/09/03 12:31
Over time the ads get progressively “pushy”— first easy to dismiss, then taking over screen, then taking over screen with sound. Then it wasn’t, easy to see how to dismiss them. I felt like I was being harassed into paying to get rid of them. I do pay for many of the apps I use, but this is not an app I need. So they annoyed me into deleting it.
Climate Change
by Jim the Kiwi on 2018/09/11 12:20
Though I readily agree that massive global fossil fuel use will have an effect I find that the smug statements of empirical fact that are presented as certainty without bothering to be intellectually honest and discuss the full range of data are repulsive and likely will cause pushback If the people running NOAA preserve their credibility they would achieve more

by etropsis on 2019/08/24 16:39
I purchased this app when it was called NOAA NOW. I guess it’s been bought out, because now it is back to multiple ads that play until they time out. Very disappointed that I’m forced to watch ads now on a paid app or else pay a monthly fee. 👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻

Politics ads
by Sue4566 on 2019/09/04 21:37
The app itself is interesting, but every time I open it I’m getting an ad asking for me to support immigration crackdowns and “don’t tread on me” symbols. Maybe it’s just a paying advertiser, or maybe it’s the developer pushing they’re agenda, but I’m not interested in supporting that.
