I have a subscription to this apps future weather service. Only works on one device even though you subscribe through iTunes, and should have it on all devices.
Love this app!

What has happened to it, sluggish
by Tedddd? on 2019/09/03 20:14
This used to be my go-to app for radar. It loaded faster than weather channel and other weather apps that I have. Now the past few weeks it’s just sluggish, terrible. I had to pay for the app and felt it was worth it but not any longer. Two stars. Ay even be too high but if they fix it I’ll gladly change it to five stars.

Best Radar
by JugglerDan on 2019/08/27 19:52
I bought this AP many years ago. Everyone else’s radar comes from NOAA. Go with the best.
What am I paying for?
by Derek_Colorado on 2019/08/26 22:51
Paid $2.99 for the app, only to find I have to subscribe at $0.99/month to get access to future forecast. Isn’t that why most people download/buy a weather app in the first place? Features aren’t that great anyway. I can get the same radar detail from free apps. Deleting this app.
Good weather app.

Amazing

This app is amazing I don’t know what I would do without it.
Did I miss something?
by Marcustoo on 2019/08/20 16:38
When I first purchased this app it had forecasting as part of the package. Disappointed that it not only went the way of monthly fees but that it did not honor its agreement
Terrible
by Cybersco on 2019/08/19 14:15
This app is not only extremely slow to load, it compensates by not being very accurate. So basically, you are better off looking out the window and doing your own forecast.
Good App. / Very Helpful, but!

Waste of money
by Lieu8 on 2019/08/14 22:06
I purchased this app because in the past I used radar cast and it looked similar....well radar cast was a million times better then this. The other reason why I purchased this is because the free app I’ve been using keeps force closing on me. I wanted weather alerts, when it’s going to rain, when lightning strikes and you now have to pay for a monthly subscription for it???? Total bs. I deleted the app after 5 min of having it and put the free one back on my phone.
Much Improved in the past few years
by Camardella on 2019/08/13 03:03
***Question (Aug.12 2019, any reports the app crashing randomly? This has happened on my iPhone and iPad tonight. Just odd) *** Lot of heat was taken, even from me when the update came out a while ago. As of Aug.2019, it’s still my go to app for all weather. The severe thunderstorms, tornado watches and warnings—something SE PA, NJ has oddly seen a lot of this spring/summer —- is spot on. It’s just good for for seeing any incoming storms, small or fierce with lightning strikes. Clicking Past loop will let you know if storms cells have weakened or have become more intense. Even the pop up storm cells nearby show up.
Good app
by mwm5053 on 2019/08/11 23:38
The app would be better if you would add 6,4,2 hour past radar and speed controls fps. Thanks for your support

Great Radar

Great radar!! But I want to purchase the top “future” radar and temperatures. But I can only do it at $0.99/mo from my iTunes account. I want to have an annual subscription to pay for 1 year from my iTunes account that can renew automatically. Please allow people to buy an annual subscription?? Thank you
Very Useful App

To much trouble to keep track of
by 1 Bigducks on 2019/07/14 18:56
$.99 per month why can’t I pay the $12.00 up front? Every app. Wants to charge you a monthly fee to what end? Not that I don’t trust you but whats to keep you from raising it to $1.01 then $1.05 then $1.10 and so on. I know I can cancel any time but with so many wanting apps. Wanting (X) amount it’s not worth it to me to try to keep track of all of them. So no I’ll pass I would really like the future part, but it’s not worth the hassle!
Greedy
by joly601 on 2019/07/14 15:00
Charges money to view future cast in a PAID app. Do not buy!

Hi Def Radar

This is a great app. I love the feature of being able to zoom in tight to a specific area. Have been using it for awhile; great app.
Has support stopped?
by Wdftn on 2019/07/05 18:44
This was always my go to app for radar. Lately, it seems radar data fails to load more and more often. If it does load on opening, if I zoom in or hit play for animation it goes away. All other apps I have seen to work fine. Maybe an update is needed?
This app stinks

Super useful. I check it frequently when the weather is threatening.
Use to be the best, they had to ruin it though!
by 1987DLT on 2019/06/23 23:15
I originally bought this app on July-18-2014 when it was still named RadarCast. For 3 years straight it was the best mobile weather app I had ever used. It showed me exactly were all the watch and warning zones were, it’s showed me precise storm cell, high wind, hail, and tornadic signatures and their estimated path. It also showed me 6 hours into the future on wifi and 2 hours on mobile and came with a slider so I could manually control the radar track. It also alerted me in the Notification Center whenever there was rain, snow, storms, lightning and any severe storm/tornado watches and warnings. I paid $2.99 and it came FULL FEATURED! Then in 2017 they removed the app from the app store and renamed/replaced it with this garbage. They removed the slider to manually control the radar track, they removed all notifications including lightning which is still available for an extra .99 cent monthly subscription plus another .99 cent a month if you want the future radar track, which you still can’t manually control with a slider. Oh and the subscriptions were only optional AFTER I WAS FORCED TO PURCHASE THE APP A SECOND TIME! The least you could have done was give me access to the app since I already paid for it once, but no, you force me to purchase the app again that has at most HALF the features that it use to unless I subscribe to $1.98 a month. This is despicable and I will be getting a refund from Apple. You should be ashamed of yourself WeatherSphere! P.S. Do not reply with a BS developer response saying that “no features were removed from previous version of the app” or “new futurcast and lightning strike features were added and made subscription”. We all know this app use to be RADARCAST, it is literally the exact same app with the exact same app icon picture.
Accurate weather forcast
by steve10134 on 2019/06/22 02:33
Very accurate. I like the future forecast video
It was better before
by CrashBuzz1112 on 2019/06/19 17:43
I subscribed monthly to get future weather and the future weather radar isn’t very good, so I unsubscribed after a few months. The “play” option on both past and future lost the capability to control the speed of the playback. The past weather looks ok but the future weather is spotty at best and it’s not worth the money to subscribe. I’m only saying this because the future weather feature was much better quality before it was a pay service.
Radar love

Not as good as the version I bought
by krshome on 2019/06/15 14:23
App was redone after I purchased it and is by no means as good. I loved the original version but now they want me to pay for features I already paid for. Don’t buy this app, just use the free Weather Channel app it’s better.
Average App
by NT5CC on 2019/06/09 22:32
Works ok. Biggest complaint is no way to turn off watch/warning area overlays. They aren’t necessary most of the time and just covers map detail
Accurate and easy to read
by firemack on 2019/06/08 15:42
I love this app. I am a weather nut and this is the best one that I ever use to see the weather near me as well as friends all over the country
Very useful
by mompunzi music on 2019/06/06 20:09
I ride a motorcycle and I use this app every time I ride. I’ve been able to plan routes better and avoid some nasty pieces of weather! The free version is great. Satellite map is super helpful. I’m thinking about upgrading because the features really are so useful.

by FriGriz on 2019/06/04 23:42
So NOAA...you’re a government agency, right? So my taxes already paid for the privilege of using this NOAA app, right? So why do I need to pay a subscription fee to see “future” radar? Hmmmm... Goodbye, ripoff kings.
Bugged
by Madecky on 2019/06/04 14:52
I pay for the future weather but when I access it it takes me to the subscription page asking me if I would like to subscribe for 0.99/month. Then when I click on subscribe it tells me I am already subscribed and does not let me access future radar. If I click “No Thanks” I don’t get to use it as well. Will try to cancel and see what happens.
Don’t leave home without it!

Great resolution. Slightly delayed, but that’s okay.
Used to good
by avgnaustin on 2019/06/02 04:22
I’m not sure why the “updated” this because they made it virtually useless, and I’m not exaggerating. Of course if you have about 2-5 minutes to wait for the radar to load then you may very find this to be the app for you. At first I thought it was my setting but nothing seems to help. And the removed the slider which was probably the one thing that made this app stand out to the others. I honestly feel like they own me my money back.
Unbelievable

Love it and the high contrast in bright colors of the app itself make it easy to find and I am trying to get my mom to put it on her phone which is different from mine ....anyway love it love it. So great I can push and see the speed and movement of upcoming storms. I live on the south east END of Lake Michigan.... We get tons of Lake effect snow and you name it ....squalls,etc.... that come off of the lake ...fantastic

The best. Really shows what is happening weather wise
Long load time
by Wesley Maddux on 2019/05/23 02:19
Takes FOREVER to load, then barely scoot the map over or zoom in and have to wait FOREVER again. But other than that the detail is nice
Worthless unless you’re whiling to pay.
by Jfreyboy on 2019/05/22 18:15
This app WAS great. Now like all apps once they become popular. You must pay for what was originally included. Future radar is now a monthly subscription. Past radar is free? I know what happened in the past. It’s the future I want to know about! Weather Underground is now my go to app. This is deleted! Thanks for ruining a good thing. I was here from the beginning. Now you’ve lost ad revenue over your greed.
This weather app It’s not I watch compatible.
by Cortex! on 2019/05/20 23:43
Although several sites (Watchaware.com) list this app as being the, “first app with Apple Watch supported features and animated, hi-Def weather radar,” This is not true. This app will only run on your iPad and iPhone. I purchased this app with the hope of watching animated radar on my I watch but was disappointed.
Wonderful radar

GET ACCUWEATHER INSTEAD! Update killed app
by Stalyun on 2019/05/18 16:11
You say nothing changed for those of us that bought it in the beginning before your blood thirstyness kicked in and now want monthly money. Here is the biggest thing that did change.......checking future radar! That’s why I bought it in the first place. Yes it was included back then. Now it is gone. Rendering this app useless for the very reason I bought it in the first place. And yet you are getting away with it by saying nothing has changed. WRONG! Sep 6 2017 DELETED DELETEDDELETED DELETED DELETED DELETEDDELETED DELETEDDELETED DELETEDDELETED DELETEDDELETED DELETEDDELETED DELETEDDELETED DELETEDDELETED DELETEDDELETED DELETEDDELETED DELETED I used to love this app. I paid for it. Now after last update it wants you to pay monthly for services I was getting for free after the initial payment for app. I think Apple should step in and do something about this. To me this is theft and more. Hi def radar makers can KMA! Contacted Apple and they said that the developer isn't doing anything wrong. May refund my money. I think I may just switch to Android if this is the case. Not the first app I bought that changed terms. Atleast the google play store doesn't limit you on tasteless apps.
App used to be good
by tbosch55 on 2019/05/16 21:21
App is pretty much useless to me anymore. When they changed so you wound have to pay monthly fee to see future path of radar. You also used to get a forecast which was very useful. Very sluggish now. Dissapointed.

Missing key radar features
by DarthDaleDidIt on 2019/05/09 16:27
This used to be one of my favorite and go to apps for weather and radar. After having purchased the app in order to get additional functionality for a purchased app there is a subscription model for the future radar which I think is very disappointing. Especially since I paid for the app to start with. Even though I paid for the app, I will be deleting it and using alternate weather information apps.
Only works over WiFi
by Passage Maker on 2019/05/05 14:14
The developer’s canned response to complaints about how this app has become worse over time - that their data supplier changed - does not explain why certain very useful features were taken away from people who had purchased the app. 1. You used to be able to get information about a storm cell’s position relative to your location. From this you could make a reasonable estimate of whether it would hit you, and when. Now the app only tells you the speed & direction of the cell, independent of your location, so you have to visually guess how far it is from you, and whether you’re in it’s path. Unless of course you buy the subscription. This has nothing to do with data suppliers: the app obviously still knows the location of the cell, and it still knows your location. The bearing to the cell and its distance from you is a simple calculation. By the way, this is not information about “the future”. Spouting nonsense about changes in data suppliers simply doesn’t explain this change in the information displayed. This developer sold an app to a bunch of people, then removed functionality unless you started to pay a subscription. You can consider that a justifiable business decision, or an unethical one, but that’s what happened. 2. The app used to be quite reliable for monitoring storm info from a boat, using cell service. Now it either takes so long for imagery to come up that the phone goes to sleep first, or it never comes up at all. (Yes, I’ve set the imagery loops to the minimum). FYI, it’s never a good idea to stare at your phone for a couple of minutes while piloting a boat, so this performance change makes a big difference. I can only conclude that they made the display so “beautiful” that now it’s useless unless you have a WiFi connection. Nothing unethical about this - just a bad design decision. If you might want to use this weather app when outdoors (i.e. exposed to weather), I’d look for different app. This one is now useless or anyone engaged in outdoor activities. If you’re safely inside with a WiFi connection and want to watch storms for fun, it works fine for that.
Unable to view warning info!
by 1CrazyOldLady on 2019/04/30 20:28
I have been using this app for several years and had two different versions with subscriptions. I liked being able to read the warnings for severe weather, but now they only pop up and they will NOT allow a view of the full alert! I can see as far as “there is a tornado warning in the following areas: “ then nothing. It won’t swipe, open or anything! Loved this app for years but now it is no longer good!
Useless app.
by iCBarajas on 2019/04/25 11:16
Useless weather app. Don’t get it.
Excellent App

Best way to see storms coming. Ona farm with horses and this allows us to make decisions on leaving them out in the pastures or bring them in based upon the intensity and speed.

In the past it worked very well. The past year the radar has not shown the storms in the area that my other weather app does. I used to recommend and gift the app. No longer.
Has potential to be what the old app was
by KCsFinest5 on 2019/04/18 02:32
The pre-2018 weathersphere radar app was my absolute favorite. This was is actually a decent replica of that one. Making the following updates would push it over the top; -Customization: Add back in the ability to slow down/speed up the loop, and add in custom icon locations. -Future weather: They have this option on this version, but it’s not the same as it was previously. Previously the past radar would seamlessly integrate with the future radar to create a smooth transition. The current setup is disjointed and stutters. It also does not connect with the past radar. This is my biggest complaint. -Rain notifications: Please bring them back! -General map smoothness -Money: I’d pay a flat 5-10 bucks for a remaster of the pre-2018 app. But this nickel and dime stuff is not great. Please provide an option for a one time payment of features WeatherSphere, please make these changes!
Love this app!
by _SHANIE_ on 2019/04/13 19:34

Not crashing anymore!
by wallyandwinnie on 2019/03/29 00:40
I uninstalled it and re-installed. Works great now! I have a feeling any problems are on the phone end of the app
Miss Some Features
by Mnweather21 on 2019/03/24 23:27
Previous versions allowed you to click a warning box which would then bring up the statement from the national weather service. I hope the developers will bring this back! It would also be nice to have a wind velocity layer too
To Slow to Update Radar
by D raider on 2019/03/23 23:34
Great radar but it’s doesn’t show radar in real time.
Not worth buying, due to bait and switch practices.
by iL24D on 2019/03/15 05:11
I originally purchased this app due to its feature set. Over time, things began to break within the app… and then they removed all usable versions of it from the store. I am now stuck with a paid weather app that no longer functions, whilst the rebrand is incompatible with my device. If you're looking for something trustworthy, end your search elsewhere. Don't waste your money on it. Pull this from a 3rd party App Store instead, if you must.
Great tool
by Critter725 on 2019/03/13 20:53

NOT Apple Watch Compatible
by BigWLindale on 2019/03/13 17:37
Read an article that stated this app has Hi-Def radar for Apple Watch. Review shows many screen shots of Apple Watch with the app running. Sadly and $1.99 later I learn it’s not Apple Watch compatible.

I drive and camp a lot, and I often weather info for my *exact* location *right now.* This app lets me know when rain will begin and end. Seeing storms approach on radar let’s me know when to get off the road and take shelter. Always helpful, sometimes a valuable warning system.

Awesome App
Never works
by _steve_75836 on 2019/02/20 05:57
I have had this app for at least a couple of years now and it has NEVER worked. Am app named SnowForecast should provide a snow forecast. Now even the messages and FAQ are blank. DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME OR MONEY. The old app was awesome, this one is pathetic. I wish I could give it a negative 5 stars. And even that would over rating it.

Having spent a lot of time being a radar operator of various types, I like this app. It provides excellent video of reality weather, not a false presentation like others I’ve seen.
What happened?
by Frauggz on 2019/02/15 19:33
So glitchy and no longer user friendly.
App keeps crashing

Been using this NOAA app for years now. Still amazes me how accurate it is. Great radar app!
It doesn’t tell me anything!!!!

Used to be great but not anymore
by Dreger69 on 2019/02/05 20:48
I bought this app a few years ago and it was wonderful. The last couple of years though it quit working and then got dumbed down. Now they're asking for more money to do less than it used to. What a shame to see a good app go bad :(
Another Repurchase 🙄
by James P Owens on 2018/07/23 11:22
I like the features. That’s why I bought RADARCAST (no longer in App Store). I understand business circumstances change and you have to make trade offs however you failed to tell your customer. My RadarCast app just began intermittently failing to show radar. Over the last month the supporting services clicked off and I was left wondering why my once reliable product stopped working. 🙄🙄🙄 communication. That’s all I’m asking for. Yes, RadarCast is related to NOAA weather radar but it might have been a M&A ago.
Good radar app
by potrto on 2018/06/12 22:03
The only reason I bought this app was that I wanted to quickly look at precipitation/clouds covering and see where it was moving. It used to be perfect in his regard - I could use the little slider at the bottom to move time forth and back and get the idea very quickly. With the new version the slider is gone and it is only possible to start plying the time loop automatically. I miss the slider a lot! On my iPhone 7 Plus the app itself seems to be working reasonably fast. I like the new layer settings - it's much nicer than it used to be. Plus, I like that now it is possible to select the combination of precipitation and clouds! As far as I remember, you could have one or the other before. However, this combination has a problem with animation - when I hit the play button it takes the whole loop to show the clouds/precipitation that move. The other layers work fine in this regard so it is only this combination that has the problem.
Loved the older version
by Alicecross on 2018/07/06 02:32
I like it except for the fact : every time they do a updated..it gets a little more simplistic for example: when I first downloaded this app able to login in and on the app post photos of weather for my location💕 now that’s not isn’t available anymore. There was also graphs that showed you the cloud depth to see how far the clouds reached up in the atmosphere and show you kind of lightning whether it was positive or negative.I’m a huge whether!!! this app keeps getting dumber and dumber!!!! I might try noaa app (the United States weather advisory) its the same app used by most meteorologist but you have to pay the 4.99 too the owner of this app: Go back to what you it was like a year and a half ago ....that’s what people would pay for!
Weather app
by frsty17 on 2018/11/01 04:15
I love the app, it gives great weather forecasts, etc, as I live where there’s tornadoes. The only thing I’m not happy with, is that I bought the better app, and have three iPads. I can only use it one one of them, however, it would be nice if that app ran on all three. It says I need to purchase it again for the other two iPads. 😞. I pay a monthly fee for the upgraded version, but I won’t for the other two. Nice app tho.
Awful
by AlexTech115 on 2018/07/03 15:50
Already purchased the app once. It was great. Now a bunch of features were removed and they're looking for more money to bring them back. Not happening. Edit 7/3/18 Came back to see how this app was doing. It’s still awful. Also found out they were doing so bad on the reviews since the rebuild they actually had to restore all the reviews from the golden age of the app to make it appear good. About 300 reviews averaging 1.3 stars in a year to 8,000+ at 4.6 in less than a month. Absolutely pathetic. I would give this app -5 stars if I could. Bait and switch. Deception. Zero functionally. Too bad Apple can’t just delete this app from the App Store. It’s a flaming dumpster fire.
No frills, precise radar
by Rumblestrip on 2018/08/04 12:05
Great, simple app. I love this app mostly because it doesn’t try to be too much. Other radar apps either lack precision or pummel you with features and updates that only the developer thinks are good. Sure, there are some basics missing with this one, but as far as radars go, this is one of the best. And when we had some severe weather recently, this thing was spot on.
Has potential to be what the old app was
by KCsFinest5 on 2019/04/18 02:32
The pre-2018 weathersphere radar app was my absolute favorite. This was is actually a decent replica of that one. Making the following updates would push it over the top; -Customization: Add back in the ability to slow down/speed up the loop, and add in custom icon locations. -Future weather: They have this option on this version, but it’s not the same as it was previously. Previously the past radar would seamlessly integrate with the future radar to create a smooth transition. The current setup is disjointed and stutters. It also does not connect with the past radar. This is my biggest complaint. -Rain notifications: Please bring them back! -General map smoothness -Money: I’d pay a flat 5-10 bucks for a remaster of the pre-2018 app. But this nickel and dime stuff is not great. Please provide an option for a one time payment of features WeatherSphere, please make these changes!
Very disrespectful to paying customer
by ICUEvrywhere on 2018/10/29 17:10
Haven’t used this in awhile since migrating to a new phone and paid for all the features which wasn’t cheap, however after installing this program the app maker stole money by converting this app that was (purchased) into a subscription which removed all of the purchased features I paid for in this app including their other radar app Radar US. I don’t do business with con artists and will be contacting Apple for a full refund of both purchases. My advice to you new people is to not do business with these app developers who are ripping paying customers off with this subscription scam.
Pretty good radar
by Jad0403 on 2018/06/14 02:27
While I think that this a pretty good app it used to be better. In the years before they wanted you to pay for a subscription this app was my go to for the weather when I was working in the field. Since they “upgraded” to offering a paid subscription, this app is now mediocre. It has a tendency to get “stuck” while loading the radar and will only show where storms were rather than where they are heading.
Pretty good
by Tree-Climber on 2018/06/15 14:23
One of my favorite weather apps, except for two things: 1) an update changed the way that the forecast maps move - now it only shows the previous hour or so of radar instead of the option to change the frame rate and show the previous 4-5 hours. I like being able to see the movement of storm systems over time. 2) it’s been charging me $1/month for who knows how long without telling me it was doing that.
Crashes on opening
by toujoursdan1 on 2018/07/23 03:08
This was my go-to app. Unfortunately in the past few weeks it started crashing upon opening. I've deleted and reinstalled but the problem continues. It doesn't matter whether I'm connected to Wi-Fi or cell service. I have an iPhone 7 Plus and am running Os11.4.1. Hope it's fixed quickly.
This used to be a great app
by hbdc1 on 2018/06/29 04:36
I am a paid subscriber, and this used to be my go-to radar app. But with the latest update, I have found the radar hard to read, especially when it is layered with different warnings and watches, which is the whole point of the app. For example, you cannot turn off a “tornado watch” alert on the radar without also losing the access to see a “tornado warning” or other storm alerts. So the map just becomes a blur of color and you can’t easily click to see where a storm is going etc
Great with some glitches
by Drupa9000 on 2018/06/21 23:52
Love this app when it works as it should. Unfortunately, the radar often does not show and the app must be reloaded a couple times until it builds the animation. The map will sometimes show no clouds / no activity even during a storm. Reloading a couple times will often resolve the glitch and the map shows the appropriate activity. Fix this and the application is five star.
Not what it used to be
by Mike Watermouth on 2018/12/10 21:43
This app used to be amazing, and as a paying customer I feel I’ve been done a disservice with updates that have removed functionality and ease of use that previously made this app great. No longer does it have the very smooth animation and ease of use that one would expect when looking at the current user interface. Where is the option to change how far back in the past to draw data for animation? It’s truly a disappointment to see that this app has become a facade to sell subscriptions (eg for “future” radar projections).
Almost back to the original
by Shagwell mcgee on 2018/07/24 01:41
Ok, this app is still not the same but it is getting better and closer to the original. I will rate 5 stars if you can PLEASE bring back the loop speed. I don’t like it how the radar just sits in place, I liked it better when I could see it moving at a quick speed as to tell what general direction the storm was heading. Also, maybe I am missing it but I don’t see severe thunderstorm/tornado watches/warnings. All I see are flood, heat, small craft and others. If you could please return those as well. Thank you.
Great
by Union pier Emily on 2019/05/28 00:56
Love it and the high contrast in bright colors of the app itself make it easy to find and I am trying to get my mom to put it on her phone which is different from mine ....anyway love it love it. So great I can push and see the speed and movement of upcoming storms. I live on the south east END of Lake Michigan.... We get tons of Lake effect snow and you name it ....squalls,etc.... that come off of the lake ...fantastic
Travel Planning Tool
by Boomer Lead on 2019/03/03 16:16
I drive and camp a lot, and I often weather info for my *exact* location *right now.* This app lets me know when rain will begin and end. Seeing storms approach on radar let’s me know when to get off the road and take shelter. Always helpful, sometimes a valuable warning system.
It was better before
by CrashBuzz1112 on 2019/06/19 17:43
I subscribed monthly to get future weather and the future weather radar isn’t very good, so I unsubscribed after a few months. The “play” option on both past and future lost the capability to control the speed of the playback. The past weather looks ok but the future weather is spotty at best and it’s not worth the money to subscribe. I’m only saying this because the future weather feature was much better quality before it was a pay service.
NOAA and NOAA
by 9justmitx on 2018/09/09 14:04
Better to purchase this app than try to work through the other ‘free’ app with it’s constant pop ups. Then they wanted $2.99 a week. And theirs wasn’t accurate. This has higher detail and matches TV Doppler’s as well as what is going outside. This is a tool to really know what is going on so you can make good decisions. Thanks.
Unable to view warning info!
by 1CrazyOldLady on 2019/04/30 20:28
I have been using this app for several years and had two different versions with subscriptions. I liked being able to read the warnings for severe weather, but now they only pop up and they will NOT allow a view of the full alert! I can see as far as “there is a tornado warning in the following areas: “ then nothing. It won’t swipe, open or anything! Loved this app for years but now it is no longer good!
Missing key radar features
by DarthDaleDidIt on 2019/05/09 16:27
This used to be one of my favorite and go to apps for weather and radar. After having purchased the app in order to get additional functionality for a purchased app there is a subscription model for the future radar which I think is very disappointing. Especially since I paid for the app to start with. Even though I paid for the app, I will be deleting it and using alternate weather information apps.
Could not manage walking my dog without this app
by mjbuzzy on 2018/06/13 21:27
I check out the rain and clouds in my area, especially on wet days, to determine the best times to walk my dog so I don't get caught up in the rain. I use it every day along side the weather underground app and it's always point on. Highly recommend it.
Just keeps getting better!
by Sysop100 on 2018/06/21 12:41
I have tried many Weather apps. This one is the best hands down. It has come a long ways and automatically updates which most don’t! Now to allow to add out weather station to it...
Do not buy! Do not update!
by Trent Dilfer on 2018/06/13 20:35
How did the star rating for this app go from 1 back up to 4? I’ve uninstalled this app and switched to Dark Sky because it has all the features this app HAD in the past. Version 3.1 update removed features. Really disappointing, do not buy this app. Version 3.2 is no good. What happened to the time-lapse scrubber at the bottom? And the ability to pin any location and get the current and future weather forecast? Am I missing something? Do I have some setting disabled?
Miss some capabilities
by Alchemist22 on 2018/08/01 22:32
Love the app but the last several updates remove some useful features like the ability to see the weather at any US continental location, and the ability to see drought area with color coded severity. The latter feature was useful for gardening. It is still a good app to track weather.
Liars and Cheaters
by tb2112 on 2018/07/25 23:35
I purchased the pro edition of this app called “RadarCast” for full price. That used to be the way you got the pro features notably Futurecast. They slowly crippled that app and now it doesn't work period. no radar at all. no communication or response to my many many support requests. I don't understand why apple let's these crooks get away with this. I'm pretty sure it's fraud/illegal!! And the new app stinks and the cost of what i already paid for is now 10 bucks a month. For weather ? are you serious??
Menu Problem
by MrNifty on 2019/01/02 00:17
When I look up my current locations weather, I cant close the menu. No matter how many time I press the “X” it doesn’t close. Which causes me to no be able to get into any other menus. Love this app but it’s rather frustrating having to force close the app and reopen it to get the menu to go away.
Worthless with new version
by msfc5509 on 2018/06/28 20:23
Had an old version that worked great. Decided to upgrade to subscription version for future info and everything went to crap. First, I had to rebuy the app because the old one was under a different Apple ID. Then I did the upgrade to access future radar. When I did I got a window at the bottom of the screen that takes about a 3rd if you screen. Oh, and the tool bar is under that window. When you tap the X to close that bottom window, surprise it doesn’t close. So now you can’t access any tools located at the bottom of the screen. Went to the website to try to get help. Forget that! That was another ordeal with disappointing results. Should have stuck with old version. Plan to hunt a replacement and call Apple for a refund.
Screwed & uninstalled
by uspshooter on 2018/06/12 17:22
This was a great app. I paid what was a lot for this app and for its brother with future cast. I used to be a storm chaser and would have killed to have this back then! Now they have gone to a subscription business model. Thanks for screwing those that paid for your app. Uninstalled and wish I could give zero or less stars. Please don’t bother responding with your “canned” response, that is just adding insult to injury. (Look at any of the developer responses, they’re just a copy & paste of the same drivel.)
Waste of money
by Lieu8 on 2019/08/14 22:06
I purchased this app because in the past I used radar cast and it looked similar....well radar cast was a million times better then this. The other reason why I purchased this is because the free app I’ve been using keeps force closing on me. I wanted weather alerts, when it’s going to rain, when lightning strikes and you now have to pay for a monthly subscription for it???? Total bs. I deleted the app after 5 min of having it and put the free one back on my phone.
Futurecast subscription
by sg246874857 on 2018/08/23 02:11
After subscribing to future weather data the app still will not show the future weather. Instead I would continue to get the offer to subscribe. Developer provided helpful tips to resolve my issue.
Get Dark Sky instead of this
by Sin77798 on 2018/10/04 04:57
I am fed up with this app. Its lame and the older version was better. I want my money back considering I paid for a good app, not a re-made low budget version. The lightning bolts look lame and on top of that you have to pay for the lightning bolt notifications. That was never and I repeat NEVER! a paid subscription in the old app. It bothers me that the developers say it was, but once again NEVER! was it on the old version. I am very disappointed and I switched over to Dark Sky
Not what it use to be
by Maxax777 on 2018/11/04 01:01
Well it’s still NO WHERE NEAR as good as it use to be...but it’s not terrible! Wish it would start in the auto play mode, that would be better. The details are good, I do like the graphics - but it’s still a far cry from what this app use to be!
Subscription to “future” doesn’t work
by KristinSharp on 2018/07/29 01:23
In general, it’s a great app, but the future forecasting doesn’t work. I subscribed and it successfully billed me (I don’t even know how many months worth), but when I hit the future button it pops up a screen to subscribe (again) and then tells me I’ve already subscribed. This is a problematic loop. You’ve got a serious bug in this app that you need to fix. At this point you are just collecting money for nothing. Fix it and I’ll subscribe again.
Very useful
by mompunzi music on 2019/06/06 20:09
I ride a motorcycle and I use this app every time I ride. I’ve been able to plan routes better and avoid some nasty pieces of weather! The free version is great. Satellite map is super helpful. I’m thinking about upgrading because the features really are so useful.
Glitchy
by Mntomb on 2018/06/15 01:57
Locks up often, not pulling up radar. Setting pins not seamless or simple. Tapping on pins for forecasts works once if at all then you have to back out and start again. When it works it is OK. The old app had multiple layers you could have at once. Now it does not allow much of anything. I paid for an app for future forecast and it was just discontinued. Pretty much garbage compared to earlier version.
One of my most used apps
by Uncorqued on 2018/07/12 21:25
Love to be able to quickly check radar in our area and then check the multi-day forecast. It’s so much better than any of the other free weather radar apps I’ve tried.
Wish it worked, like the old days
by 9random9 on 2018/08/21 05:25
It does not load weather map on any of our household devices. To load a weather map, you have to play and stop the past weather several times until it finally starts loading a map. This used to be our favorite app, but for the past year it keeps removing features with each update, gets slower, and hardly works when you first open or relaunch. Don’t waste your money on it.
My radar
by JohnHughes on 2018/06/28 21:30
This is my favorite radar app, always my go to when need to see something quickly, fast loading , high quality graphics make this a real winner in my opinion. I’m not a meteorologist, but was the best forecaster in Pharmacy School!
Who to believe
by Rhutch418 on 2018/07/03 18:48
It is interesting to find that Extreme radar doesn’t always agree with Apple weather. When you clearly see red on the radar in a certain location and ask Siri if it is raining in that area, you would expect the two to be in agreement with each other. I don’t expect perfection with this at all times... but, it may make me question its reliability when I really need to count on it.
Very accurate, to the quarter mile
by Non savvy with apps on 2018/06/18 20:41
I like this app because the radar is very well defined and it’s accurate. Also, I like the location services feature. I’m constantly showing this app off to my friends. And can play weatherman
Radar Feature
by SmokeyRingtail on 2018/06/19 00:41
I am really enjoying the radar feature. I pinpoint where my friends live and when storms are coming their way I text them. Also when I am at my Grandchildren’s house-if there are storms in the area I know when it is safe to go home, or whether I should stay overnight.
Used to good
by avgnaustin on 2019/06/02 04:22
I’m not sure why the “updated” this because they made it virtually useless, and I’m not exaggerating. Of course if you have about 2-5 minutes to wait for the radar to load then you may very find this to be the app for you. At first I thought it was my setting but nothing seems to help. And the removed the slider which was probably the one thing that made this app stand out to the others. I honestly feel like they own me my money back.
Had it for a year now. Thumbs up
by blackie03 on 2019/05/24 21:12
I like this app because It tells you your speed on land or speed in the air if you’re flying. I like the radar feature works well. I have had this app for over a year
Miss Some Features
by Mnweather21 on 2019/03/24 23:27
Previous versions allowed you to click a warning box which would then bring up the statement from the national weather service. I hope the developers will bring this back! It would also be nice to have a wind velocity layer too
Scam artists - do not support
by Zeke6478 on 2018/08/04 02:26
So you admit you broke Radar Cast in order to push everyone to this subscription based app. Well done....💩💩💩💩💩. Do not support this app. They charged users for a “pro” version in the past. Now they want to charge a subscription fee to the users who paid for an upgraded version in the past. It’s only a matter of time until their next scam. Keep having my reviews deleted. I check everyday and will continue to repost so it’s fresh. And for the record Radar Cast did have future weather included. As the map moved over past conditions the time on top showed in green. Went it went to the future state it changed to red. It was 100% a paid feature on the “pro” version. The developer responses are lies and subterfuge.
To slow to refresh!
by Exterior painter on 2018/06/23 14:13
Always at least 10 minutes behind and won’t refresh when prompted. I have an iPhone SE and have 100 mbs WiFi at my home and the radar displayed is always at least 10 minutes behind. There is a refresh button but when prompted does nothing. I keep my apps updated.
Great App for tracking Storms
by Scvk2 on 2018/07/04 21:24
I have been using this App for at least two years. IT is very accurate and graphically appealing. With 5 minute updates it is close to real time. I have been using an original iPad with 5.1.1 OS. I would leave it on all day and would have an accurate view of the weather. The recent update made the iPad useless. You get the map but no weather graphics with the old OS. It would be nice if the old version could be made available it would give older iPads something useful to do.
Went love to have detailed storm so information
by tile 311228 on 2018/10/09 10:12
I wish like crazy it would still give me the details on the right tab on the specific storm so tired shows me the specifics regarding the storm, hail Content etc.

I have a subscription to this apps future weather service. Only works on one device even though you subscribe through iTunes, and should have it on all devices.
Love this app!

What has happened to it, sluggish
by Tedddd? on 2019/09/03 20:14
This used to be my go-to app for radar. It loaded faster than weather channel and other weather apps that I have. Now the past few weeks it’s just sluggish, terrible. I had to pay for the app and felt it was worth it but not any longer. Two stars. Ay even be too high but if they fix it I’ll gladly change it to five stars.

Best Radar
by JugglerDan on 2019/08/27 19:52
I bought this AP many years ago. Everyone else’s radar comes from NOAA. Go with the best.
What am I paying for?
by Derek_Colorado on 2019/08/26 22:51
Paid $2.99 for the app, only to find I have to subscribe at $0.99/month to get access to future forecast. Isn’t that why most people download/buy a weather app in the first place? Features aren’t that great anyway. I can get the same radar detail from free apps. Deleting this app.
Good weather app.

This app is amazing I don’t know what I would do without it.
Did I miss something?
by Marcustoo on 2019/08/20 16:38
When I first purchased this app it had forecasting as part of the package. Disappointed that it not only went the way of monthly fees but that it did not honor its agreement
Terrible
by Cybersco on 2019/08/19 14:15
This app is not only extremely slow to load, it compensates by not being very accurate. So basically, you are better off looking out the window and doing your own forecast.
Good App. / Very Helpful, but!

by Lieu8 on 2019/08/14 22:06
I purchased this app because in the past I used radar cast and it looked similar....well radar cast was a million times better then this. The other reason why I purchased this is because the free app I’ve been using keeps force closing on me. I wanted weather alerts, when it’s going to rain, when lightning strikes and you now have to pay for a monthly subscription for it???? Total bs. I deleted the app after 5 min of having it and put the free one back on my phone.
Much Improved in the past few years
by Camardella on 2019/08/13 03:03
***Question (Aug.12 2019, any reports the app crashing randomly? This has happened on my iPhone and iPad tonight. Just odd) *** Lot of heat was taken, even from me when the update came out a while ago. As of Aug.2019, it’s still my go to app for all weather. The severe thunderstorms, tornado watches and warnings—something SE PA, NJ has oddly seen a lot of this spring/summer —- is spot on. It’s just good for for seeing any incoming storms, small or fierce with lightning strikes. Clicking Past loop will let you know if storms cells have weakened or have become more intense. Even the pop up storm cells nearby show up.
Good app
by mwm5053 on 2019/08/11 23:38
The app would be better if you would add 6,4,2 hour past radar and speed controls fps. Thanks for your support

Great radar!! But I want to purchase the top “future” radar and temperatures. But I can only do it at $0.99/mo from my iTunes account.

To much trouble to keep track of
by 1 Bigducks on 2019/07/14 18:56
$.99 per month why can’t I pay the $12.00 up front? Every app. Wants to charge you a monthly fee to what end? Not that I don’t trust you but whats to keep you from raising it to $1.01 then $1.05 then $1.10 and so on. I know I can cancel any time but with so many wanting apps. Wanting (X) amount it’s not worth it to me to try to keep track of all of them. So no I’ll pass I would really like the future part, but it’s not worth the hassle!
Greedy
by joly601 on 2019/07/14 15:00

Has support stopped?
by Wdftn on 2019/07/05 18:44
This was always my go to app for radar. Lately, it seems radar data fails to load more and more often. If it does load on opening, if I zoom in or hit play for animation it goes away. All other apps I have seen to work fine. Maybe an update is needed?

Use to be the best, they had to ruin it though!
by 1987DLT on 2019/06/23 23:15
I originally bought this app on July-18-2014 when it was still named RadarCast. For 3 years straight it was the best mobile weather app I had ever used. It showed me exactly were all the watch and warning zones were, it’s showed me precise storm cell, high wind, hail, and tornadic signatures and their estimated path. It also showed me 6 hours into the future on wifi and 2 hours on mobile and came with a slider so I could manually control the radar track. It also alerted me in the Notification Center whenever there was rain, snow, storms, lightning and any severe storm/tornado watches and warnings. I paid $2.99 and it came FULL FEATURED! Then in 2017 they removed the app from the app store and renamed/replaced it with this garbage. They removed the slider to manually control the radar track, they removed all notifications including lightning which is still available for an extra .99 cent monthly subscription plus another .99 cent a month if you want the future radar track, which you still can’t manually control with a slider. Oh and the subscriptions were only optional AFTER I WAS FORCED TO PURCHASE THE APP A SECOND TIME! The least you could have done was give me access to the app since I already paid for it once, but no, you force me to purchase the app again that has at most HALF the features that it use to unless I subscribe to $1.98 a month. This is despicable and I will be getting a refund from Apple. You should be ashamed of yourself WeatherSphere! P.S. Do not reply with a BS developer response saying that “no features were removed from previous version of the app” or “new futurcast and lightning strike features were added and made subscription”. We all know this app use to be RADARCAST, it is literally the exact same app with the exact same app icon picture.
Accurate weather forcast
by steve10134 on 2019/06/22 02:33
Very accurate. I like the future forecast video
It was better before
by CrashBuzz1112 on 2019/06/19 17:43
I subscribed monthly to get future weather and the future weather radar isn’t very good, so I unsubscribed after a few months. The “play” option on both past and future lost the capability to control the speed of the playback. The past weather looks ok but the future weather is spotty at best and it’s not worth the money to subscribe. I’m only saying this because the future weather feature was much better quality before it was a pay service.

Not as good as the version I bought
by krshome on 2019/06/15 14:23
App was redone after I purchased it and is by no means as good. I loved the original version but now they want me to pay for features I already paid for. Don’t buy this app, just use the free Weather Channel app it’s better.
Average App
by NT5CC on 2019/06/09 22:32
Works ok. Biggest complaint is no way to turn off watch/warning area overlays. They aren’t necessary most of the time and just covers map detail
Accurate and easy to read

by mompunzi music on 2019/06/06 20:09
I ride a motorcycle and I use this app every time I ride. I’ve been able to plan routes better and avoid some nasty pieces of weather! The free version is great. Satellite map is super helpful. I’m thinking about upgrading because the features really are so useful.

Bugged
by Madecky on 2019/06/04 14:52
I pay for the future weather but when I access it it takes me to the subscription page asking me if I would like to subscribe for 0.99/month. Then when I click on subscribe it tells me I am already subscribed and does not let me access future radar. If I click “No Thanks” I don’t get to use it as well. Will try to cancel and see what happens.

by avgnaustin on 2019/06/02 04:22
I’m not sure why the “updated” this because they made it virtually useless, and I’m not exaggerating. Of course if you have about 2-5 minutes to wait for the radar to load then you may very find this to be the app for you. At first I thought it was my setting but nothing seems to help. And the removed the slider which was probably the one thing that made this app stand out to the others. I honestly feel like they own me my money back.

Takes FOREVER to load, then barely scoot the map over or zoom in and have to wait FOREVER again. But other than that the detail is nice
Worthless unless you’re whiling to pay.
by Jfreyboy on 2019/05/22 18:15
This app WAS great. Now like all apps once they become popular. You must pay for what was originally included. Future radar is now a monthly subscription. Past radar is free? I know what happened in the past. It’s the future I want to know about! Weather Underground is now my go to app. This is deleted! Thanks for ruining a good thing. I was here from the beginning. Now you’ve lost ad revenue over your greed.
This weather app It’s not I watch compatible.
by Cortex! on 2019/05/20 23:43
Although several sites (Watchaware.com) list this app as being the, “first app with Apple Watch supported features and animated, hi-Def weather radar,” This is not true. This app will only run on your iPad and iPhone. I purchased this app with the hope of watching animated radar on my I watch but was disappointed.

GET ACCUWEATHER INSTEAD! Update killed app
by Stalyun on 2019/05/18 16:11
You say nothing changed for those of us that bought it in the beginning before your blood thirstyness kicked in and now want monthly money. Here is the biggest thing that did change.......checking future radar! That’s why I bought it in the first place. Yes it was included back then. Now it is gone. Rendering this app useless for the very reason I bought it in the first place. And yet you are getting away with it by saying nothing has changed. WRONG! Sep 6 2017 DELETED DELETEDDELETED DELETED DELETED DELETEDDELETED DELETEDDELETED DELETEDDELETED DELETEDDELETED DELETEDDELETED DELETEDDELETED DELETEDDELETED DELETEDDELETED DELETEDDELETED DELETED I used to love this app. I paid for it. Now after last update it wants you to pay monthly for services I was getting for free after the initial payment for app. I think Apple should step in and do something about this. To me this is theft and more. Hi def radar makers can KMA! Contacted Apple and they said that the developer isn't doing anything wrong. May refund my money. I think I may just switch to Android if this is the case. Not the first app I bought that changed terms. Atleast the google play store doesn't limit you on tasteless apps.
App used to be good
by tbosch55 on 2019/05/16 21:21
App is pretty much useless to me anymore. When they changed so you wound have to pay monthly fee to see future path of radar. You also used to get a forecast which was very useful. Very sluggish now. Dissapointed.

Missing key radar features
by DarthDaleDidIt on 2019/05/09 16:27
This used to be one of my favorite and go to apps for weather and radar. After having purchased the app in order to get additional functionality for a purchased app there is a subscription model for the future radar which I think is very disappointing. Especially since I paid for the app to start with. Even though I paid for the app, I will be deleting it and using alternate weather information apps.
Only works over WiFi
by Passage Maker on 2019/05/05 14:14
The developer’s canned response to complaints about how this app has become worse over time - that their data supplier changed - does not explain why certain very useful features were taken away from people who had purchased the app. 1. You used to be able to get information about a storm cell’s position relative to your location. From this you could make a reasonable estimate of whether it would hit you, and when. Now the app only tells you the speed & direction of the cell, independent of your location, so you have to visually guess how far it is from you, and whether you’re in it’s path. Unless of course you buy the subscription. This has nothing to do with data suppliers: the app obviously still knows the location of the cell, and it still knows your location. The bearing to the cell and its distance from you is a simple calculation. By the way, this is not information about “the future”. Spouting nonsense about changes in data suppliers simply doesn’t explain this change in the information displayed. This developer sold an app to a bunch of people, then removed functionality unless you started to pay a subscription. You can consider that a justifiable business decision, or an unethical one, but that’s what happened. 2. The app used to be quite reliable for monitoring storm info from a boat, using cell service. Now it either takes so long for imagery to come up that the phone goes to sleep first, or it never comes up at all. (Yes, I’ve set the imagery loops to the minimum). FYI, it’s never a good idea to stare at your phone for a couple of minutes while piloting a boat, so this performance change makes a big difference. I can only conclude that they made the display so “beautiful” that now it’s useless unless you have a WiFi connection. Nothing unethical about this - just a bad design decision. If you might want to use this weather app when outdoors (i.e. exposed to weather), I’d look for different app. This one is now useless or anyone engaged in outdoor activities. If you’re safely inside with a WiFi connection and want to watch storms for fun, it works fine for that.
Unable to view warning info!
by 1CrazyOldLady on 2019/04/30 20:28
I have been using this app for several years and had two different versions with subscriptions. I liked being able to read the warnings for severe weather, but now they only pop up and they will NOT allow a view of the full alert! I can see as far as “there is a tornado warning in the following areas: “ then nothing. It won’t swipe, open or anything! Loved this app for years but now it is no longer good!
Useless app.

Has potential to be what the old app was
by KCsFinest5 on 2019/04/18 02:32
The pre-2018 weathersphere radar app was my absolute favorite. This was is actually a decent replica of that one. Making the following updates would push it over the top; -Customization: Add back in the ability to slow down/speed up the loop, and add in custom icon locations. -Future weather: They have this option on this version, but it’s not the same as it was previously. Previously the past radar would seamlessly integrate with the future radar to create a smooth transition. The current setup is disjointed and stutters. It also does not connect with the past radar. This is my biggest complaint. -Rain notifications: Please bring them back! -General map smoothness -Money: I’d pay a flat 5-10 bucks for a remaster of the pre-2018 app. But this nickel and dime stuff is not great. Please provide an option for a one time payment of features WeatherSphere, please make these changes!
Love this app!

Miss Some Features
by Mnweather21 on 2019/03/24 23:27
Previous versions allowed you to click a warning box which would then bring up the statement from the national weather service. I hope the developers will bring this back! It would also be nice to have a wind velocity layer too

Great radar but it’s doesn’t show radar in real time.
Not worth buying, due to bait and switch practices.
by iL24D on 2019/03/15 05:11
I originally purchased this app due to its feature set. Over time, things began to break within the app… and then they removed all usable versions of it from the store. I am now stuck with a paid weather app that no longer functions, whilst the rebrand is incompatible with my device. If you're looking for something trustworthy, end your search elsewhere. Don't waste your money on it. Pull this from a 3rd party App Store instead, if you must.

I drive and camp a lot, and I often weather info for my *exact* location *right now.* This app lets me know when rain will begin and end. Seeing storms approach on radar let’s me know when to get off the road and take shelter. Always helpful, sometimes a valuable warning system.

I have had this app for at least a couple of years now and it has NEVER worked. Am app named SnowForecast should provide a snow forecast. Now even the messages and FAQ are blank.

Another Repurchase 🙄
by James P Owens on 2018/07/23 11:22
I like the features. That’s why I bought RADARCAST (no longer in App Store). I understand business circumstances change and you have to make trade offs however you failed to tell your customer. My RadarCast app just began intermittently failing to show radar. Over the last month the supporting services clicked off and I was left wondering why my once reliable product stopped working. 🙄🙄🙄 communication. That’s all I’m asking for. Yes, RadarCast is related to NOAA weather radar but it might have been a M&A ago.
Good radar app
by potrto on 2018/06/12 22:03
The only reason I bought this app was that I wanted to quickly look at precipitation/clouds covering and see where it was moving. It used to be perfect in his regard - I could use the little slider at the bottom to move time forth and back and get the idea very quickly. With the new version the slider is gone and it is only possible to start plying the time loop automatically. I miss the slider a lot! On my iPhone 7 Plus the app itself seems to be working reasonably fast. I like the new layer settings - it's much nicer than it used to be. Plus, I like that now it is possible to select the combination of precipitation and clouds! As far as I remember, you could have one or the other before. However, this combination has a problem with animation - when I hit the play button it takes the whole loop to show the clouds/precipitation that move. The other layers work fine in this regard so it is only this combination that has the problem.
Loved the older version
by Alicecross on 2018/07/06 02:32
I like it except for the fact : every time they do a updated..it gets a little more simplistic for example: when I first downloaded this app able to login in and on the app post photos of weather for my location💕 now that’s not isn’t available anymore. There was also graphs that showed you the cloud depth to see how far the clouds reached up in the atmosphere and show you kind of lightning whether it was positive or negative.I’m a huge whether!!! this app keeps getting dumber and dumber!!!! I might try noaa app (the United States weather advisory) its the same app used by most meteorologist but you have to pay the 4.99 too the owner of this app: Go back to what you it was like a year and a half ago ....that’s what people would pay for!
Weather app
by frsty17 on 2018/11/01 04:15
I love the app, it gives great weather forecasts, etc, as I live where there’s tornadoes. The only thing I’m not happy with, is that I bought the better app, and have three iPads. I can only use it one one of them, however, it would be nice if that app ran on all three. It says I need to purchase it again for the other two iPads. 😞. I pay a monthly fee for the upgraded version, but I won’t for the other two. Nice app tho.
Awful
by AlexTech115 on 2018/07/03 15:50
Already purchased the app once. It was great. Now a bunch of features were removed and they're looking for more money to bring them back. Not happening. Edit 7/3/18 Came back to see how this app was doing. It’s still awful. Also found out they were doing so bad on the reviews since the rebuild they actually had to restore all the reviews from the golden age of the app to make it appear good. About 300 reviews averaging 1.3 stars in a year to 8,000+ at 4.6 in less than a month. Absolutely pathetic. I would give this app -5 stars if I could. Bait and switch. Deception. Zero functionally. Too bad Apple can’t just delete this app from the App Store. It’s a flaming dumpster fire.
No frills, precise radar
by Rumblestrip on 2018/08/04 12:05
Great, simple app. I love this app mostly because it doesn’t try to be too much. Other radar apps either lack precision or pummel you with features and updates that only the developer thinks are good. Sure, there are some basics missing with this one, but as far as radars go, this is one of the best. And when we had some severe weather recently, this thing was spot on.
Has potential to be what the old app was
by KCsFinest5 on 2019/04/18 02:32
The pre-2018 weathersphere radar app was my absolute favorite. This was is actually a decent replica of that one. Making the following updates would push it over the top; -Customization: Add back in the ability to slow down/speed up the loop, and add in custom icon locations. -Future weather: They have this option on this version, but it’s not the same as it was previously. Previously the past radar would seamlessly integrate with the future radar to create a smooth transition. The current setup is disjointed and stutters. It also does not connect with the past radar. This is my biggest complaint. -Rain notifications: Please bring them back! -General map smoothness -Money: I’d pay a flat 5-10 bucks for a remaster of the pre-2018 app. But this nickel and dime stuff is not great. Please provide an option for a one time payment of features WeatherSphere, please make these changes!
Very disrespectful to paying customer
by ICUEvrywhere on 2018/10/29 17:10
Haven’t used this in awhile since migrating to a new phone and paid for all the features which wasn’t cheap, however after installing this program the app maker stole money by converting this app that was (purchased) into a subscription which removed all of the purchased features I paid for in this app including their other radar app Radar US. I don’t do business with con artists and will be contacting Apple for a full refund of both purchases. My advice to you new people is to not do business with these app developers who are ripping paying customers off with this subscription scam.
Pretty good radar
by Jad0403 on 2018/06/14 02:27
While I think that this a pretty good app it used to be better. In the years before they wanted you to pay for a subscription this app was my go to for the weather when I was working in the field. Since they “upgraded” to offering a paid subscription, this app is now mediocre. It has a tendency to get “stuck” while loading the radar and will only show where storms were rather than where they are heading.
Pretty good
by Tree-Climber on 2018/06/15 14:23
One of my favorite weather apps, except for two things: 1) an update changed the way that the forecast maps move - now it only shows the previous hour or so of radar instead of the option to change the frame rate and show the previous 4-5 hours. I like being able to see the movement of storm systems over time. 2) it’s been charging me $1/month for who knows how long without telling me it was doing that.
Crashes on opening
by toujoursdan1 on 2018/07/23 03:08
This was my go-to app. Unfortunately in the past few weeks it started crashing upon opening. I've deleted and reinstalled but the problem continues. It doesn't matter whether I'm connected to Wi-Fi or cell service. I have an iPhone 7 Plus and am running Os11.4.1. Hope it's fixed quickly.
This used to be a great app
by hbdc1 on 2018/06/29 04:36
I am a paid subscriber, and this used to be my go-to radar app. But with the latest update, I have found the radar hard to read, especially when it is layered with different warnings and watches, which is the whole point of the app. For example, you cannot turn off a “tornado watch” alert on the radar without also losing the access to see a “tornado warning” or other storm alerts. So the map just becomes a blur of color and you can’t easily click to see where a storm is going etc
Great with some glitches
by Drupa9000 on 2018/06/21 23:52
Love this app when it works as it should. Unfortunately, the radar often does not show and the app must be reloaded a couple times until it builds the animation. The map will sometimes show no clouds / no activity even during a storm. Reloading a couple times will often resolve the glitch and the map shows the appropriate activity. Fix this and the application is five star.
Not what it used to be
by Mike Watermouth on 2018/12/10 21:43
This app used to be amazing, and as a paying customer I feel I’ve been done a disservice with updates that have removed functionality and ease of use that previously made this app great. No longer does it have the very smooth animation and ease of use that one would expect when looking at the current user interface. Where is the option to change how far back in the past to draw data for animation? It’s truly a disappointment to see that this app has become a facade to sell subscriptions (eg for “future” radar projections).
Almost back to the original
by Shagwell mcgee on 2018/07/24 01:41
Ok, this app is still not the same but it is getting better and closer to the original. I will rate 5 stars if you can PLEASE bring back the loop speed. I don’t like it how the radar just sits in place, I liked it better when I could see it moving at a quick speed as to tell what general direction the storm was heading. Also, maybe I am missing it but I don’t see severe thunderstorm/tornado watches/warnings. All I see are flood, heat, small craft and others. If you could please return those as well. Thank you.
Great
by Union pier Emily on 2019/05/28 00:56
Love it and the high contrast in bright colors of the app itself make it easy to find and I am trying to get my mom to put it on her phone which is different from mine ....anyway love it love it. So great I can push and see the speed and movement of upcoming storms. I live on the south east END of Lake Michigan.... We get tons of Lake effect snow and you name it ....squalls,etc.... that come off of the lake ...fantastic
Travel Planning Tool
by Boomer Lead on 2019/03/03 16:16
I drive and camp a lot, and I often weather info for my *exact* location *right now.* This app lets me know when rain will begin and end. Seeing storms approach on radar let’s me know when to get off the road and take shelter. Always helpful, sometimes a valuable warning system.
It was better before
by CrashBuzz1112 on 2019/06/19 17:43
I subscribed monthly to get future weather and the future weather radar isn’t very good, so I unsubscribed after a few months. The “play” option on both past and future lost the capability to control the speed of the playback. The past weather looks ok but the future weather is spotty at best and it’s not worth the money to subscribe. I’m only saying this because the future weather feature was much better quality before it was a pay service.
NOAA and NOAA
by 9justmitx on 2018/09/09 14:04
Better to purchase this app than try to work through the other ‘free’ app with it’s constant pop ups. Then they wanted $2.99 a week. And theirs wasn’t accurate. This has higher detail and matches TV Doppler’s as well as what is going outside. This is a tool to really know what is going on so you can make good decisions. Thanks.
Unable to view warning info!
by 1CrazyOldLady on 2019/04/30 20:28
I have been using this app for several years and had two different versions with subscriptions. I liked being able to read the warnings for severe weather, but now they only pop up and they will NOT allow a view of the full alert! I can see as far as “there is a tornado warning in the following areas: “ then nothing. It won’t swipe, open or anything! Loved this app for years but now it is no longer good!
Missing key radar features
by DarthDaleDidIt on 2019/05/09 16:27
This used to be one of my favorite and go to apps for weather and radar. After having purchased the app in order to get additional functionality for a purchased app there is a subscription model for the future radar which I think is very disappointing. Especially since I paid for the app to start with. Even though I paid for the app, I will be deleting it and using alternate weather information apps.
Could not manage walking my dog without this app
by mjbuzzy on 2018/06/13 21:27
I check out the rain and clouds in my area, especially on wet days, to determine the best times to walk my dog so I don't get caught up in the rain. I use it every day along side the weather underground app and it's always point on. Highly recommend it.
Just keeps getting better!
by Sysop100 on 2018/06/21 12:41
I have tried many Weather apps. This one is the best hands down. It has come a long ways and automatically updates which most don’t! Now to allow to add out weather station to it...
Do not buy! Do not update!
by Trent Dilfer on 2018/06/13 20:35
How did the star rating for this app go from 1 back up to 4? I’ve uninstalled this app and switched to Dark Sky because it has all the features this app HAD in the past. Version 3.1 update removed features. Really disappointing, do not buy this app. Version 3.2 is no good. What happened to the time-lapse scrubber at the bottom? And the ability to pin any location and get the current and future weather forecast? Am I missing something? Do I have some setting disabled?
Miss some capabilities
by Alchemist22 on 2018/08/01 22:32
Love the app but the last several updates remove some useful features like the ability to see the weather at any US continental location, and the ability to see drought area with color coded severity. The latter feature was useful for gardening. It is still a good app to track weather.
Liars and Cheaters
by tb2112 on 2018/07/25 23:35
I purchased the pro edition of this app called “RadarCast” for full price. That used to be the way you got the pro features notably Futurecast. They slowly crippled that app and now it doesn't work period. no radar at all. no communication or response to my many many support requests. I don't understand why apple let's these crooks get away with this. I'm pretty sure it's fraud/illegal!! And the new app stinks and the cost of what i already paid for is now 10 bucks a month. For weather ? are you serious??
Menu Problem
by MrNifty on 2019/01/02 00:17
When I look up my current locations weather, I cant close the menu. No matter how many time I press the “X” it doesn’t close. Which causes me to no be able to get into any other menus. Love this app but it’s rather frustrating having to force close the app and reopen it to get the menu to go away.
Worthless with new version
by msfc5509 on 2018/06/28 20:23
Had an old version that worked great. Decided to upgrade to subscription version for future info and everything went to crap. First, I had to rebuy the app because the old one was under a different Apple ID. Then I did the upgrade to access future radar. When I did I got a window at the bottom of the screen that takes about a 3rd if you screen. Oh, and the tool bar is under that window. When you tap the X to close that bottom window, surprise it doesn’t close. So now you can’t access any tools located at the bottom of the screen. Went to the website to try to get help. Forget that! That was another ordeal with disappointing results. Should have stuck with old version. Plan to hunt a replacement and call Apple for a refund.
Screwed & uninstalled
by uspshooter on 2018/06/12 17:22
This was a great app. I paid what was a lot for this app and for its brother with future cast. I used to be a storm chaser and would have killed to have this back then! Now they have gone to a subscription business model. Thanks for screwing those that paid for your app. Uninstalled and wish I could give zero or less stars. Please don’t bother responding with your “canned” response, that is just adding insult to injury. (Look at any of the developer responses, they’re just a copy & paste of the same drivel.)
Waste of money
by Lieu8 on 2019/08/14 22:06
I purchased this app because in the past I used radar cast and it looked similar....well radar cast was a million times better then this. The other reason why I purchased this is because the free app I’ve been using keeps force closing on me. I wanted weather alerts, when it’s going to rain, when lightning strikes and you now have to pay for a monthly subscription for it???? Total bs. I deleted the app after 5 min of having it and put the free one back on my phone.
Futurecast subscription
by sg246874857 on 2018/08/23 02:11
After subscribing to future weather data the app still will not show the future weather. Instead I would continue to get the offer to subscribe. Developer provided helpful tips to resolve my issue.
Get Dark Sky instead of this
by Sin77798 on 2018/10/04 04:57
I am fed up with this app. Its lame and the older version was better. I want my money back considering I paid for a good app, not a re-made low budget version. The lightning bolts look lame and on top of that you have to pay for the lightning bolt notifications. That was never and I repeat NEVER! a paid subscription in the old app. It bothers me that the developers say it was, but once again NEVER! was it on the old version. I am very disappointed and I switched over to Dark Sky
Not what it use to be
by Maxax777 on 2018/11/04 01:01
Well it’s still NO WHERE NEAR as good as it use to be...but it’s not terrible! Wish it would start in the auto play mode, that would be better. The details are good, I do like the graphics - but it’s still a far cry from what this app use to be!
Subscription to “future” doesn’t work
by KristinSharp on 2018/07/29 01:23
In general, it’s a great app, but the future forecasting doesn’t work. I subscribed and it successfully billed me (I don’t even know how many months worth), but when I hit the future button it pops up a screen to subscribe (again) and then tells me I’ve already subscribed. This is a problematic loop. You’ve got a serious bug in this app that you need to fix. At this point you are just collecting money for nothing. Fix it and I’ll subscribe again.
Very useful
by mompunzi music on 2019/06/06 20:09
I ride a motorcycle and I use this app every time I ride. I’ve been able to plan routes better and avoid some nasty pieces of weather! The free version is great. Satellite map is super helpful. I’m thinking about upgrading because the features really are so useful.
Glitchy
by Mntomb on 2018/06/15 01:57
Locks up often, not pulling up radar. Setting pins not seamless or simple. Tapping on pins for forecasts works once if at all then you have to back out and start again. When it works it is OK. The old app had multiple layers you could have at once. Now it does not allow much of anything. I paid for an app for future forecast and it was just discontinued. Pretty much garbage compared to earlier version.
One of my most used apps
by Uncorqued on 2018/07/12 21:25
Love to be able to quickly check radar in our area and then check the multi-day forecast. It’s so much better than any of the other free weather radar apps I’ve tried.
Wish it worked, like the old days
by 9random9 on 2018/08/21 05:25
It does not load weather map on any of our household devices. To load a weather map, you have to play and stop the past weather several times until it finally starts loading a map. This used to be our favorite app, but for the past year it keeps removing features with each update, gets slower, and hardly works when you first open or relaunch. Don’t waste your money on it.
My radar
by JohnHughes on 2018/06/28 21:30
This is my favorite radar app, always my go to when need to see something quickly, fast loading , high quality graphics make this a real winner in my opinion. I’m not a meteorologist, but was the best forecaster in Pharmacy School!
Who to believe
by Rhutch418 on 2018/07/03 18:48
It is interesting to find that Extreme radar doesn’t always agree with Apple weather. When you clearly see red on the radar in a certain location and ask Siri if it is raining in that area, you would expect the two to be in agreement with each other. I don’t expect perfection with this at all times... but, it may make me question its reliability when I really need to count on it.
Very accurate, to the quarter mile
by Non savvy with apps on 2018/06/18 20:41
I like this app because the radar is very well defined and it’s accurate. Also, I like the location services feature. I’m constantly showing this app off to my friends. And can play weatherman
Radar Feature
by SmokeyRingtail on 2018/06/19 00:41
I am really enjoying the radar feature. I pinpoint where my friends live and when storms are coming their way I text them. Also when I am at my Grandchildren’s house-if there are storms in the area I know when it is safe to go home, or whether I should stay overnight.
Used to good
by avgnaustin on 2019/06/02 04:22
I’m not sure why the “updated” this because they made it virtually useless, and I’m not exaggerating. Of course if you have about 2-5 minutes to wait for the radar to load then you may very find this to be the app for you. At first I thought it was my setting but nothing seems to help. And the removed the slider which was probably the one thing that made this app stand out to the others. I honestly feel like they own me my money back.
Had it for a year now. Thumbs up
by blackie03 on 2019/05/24 21:12
I like this app because It tells you your speed on land or speed in the air if you’re flying. I like the radar feature works well. I have had this app for over a year
Miss Some Features
by Mnweather21 on 2019/03/24 23:27
Previous versions allowed you to click a warning box which would then bring up the statement from the national weather service. I hope the developers will bring this back! It would also be nice to have a wind velocity layer too
Scam artists - do not support
by Zeke6478 on 2018/08/04 02:26
So you admit you broke Radar Cast in order to push everyone to this subscription based app. Well done....💩💩💩💩💩. Do not support this app. They charged users for a “pro” version in the past. Now they want to charge a subscription fee to the users who paid for an upgraded version in the past. It’s only a matter of time until their next scam. Keep having my reviews deleted. I check everyday and will continue to repost so it’s fresh. And for the record Radar Cast did have future weather included. As the map moved over past conditions the time on top showed in green. Went it went to the future state it changed to red. It was 100% a paid feature on the “pro” version. The developer responses are lies and subterfuge.
To slow to refresh!
by Exterior painter on 2018/06/23 14:13
Always at least 10 minutes behind and won’t refresh when prompted. I have an iPhone SE and have 100 mbs WiFi at my home and the radar displayed is always at least 10 minutes behind. There is a refresh button but when prompted does nothing. I keep my apps updated.
Great App for tracking Storms
by Scvk2 on 2018/07/04 21:24
I have been using this App for at least two years. IT is very accurate and graphically appealing. With 5 minute updates it is close to real time. I have been using an original iPad with 5.1.1 OS. I would leave it on all day and would have an accurate view of the weather. The recent update made the iPad useless. You get the map but no weather graphics with the old OS. It would be nice if the old version could be made available it would give older iPads something useful to do.
Went love to have detailed storm so information
by tile 311228 on 2018/10/09 10:12
I wish like crazy it would still give me the details on the right tab on the specific storm so tired shows me the specifics regarding the storm, hail Content etc.
