Great Weather App
by seapickle63 on 2019/10/22 17:34
This app makes the weather wonderful. They continue to update this app to make it the best to use on a day to day basis.
From a pilot
by Nwnjflyer on 2019/10/22 01:19
I have been a pilot for over 35 years and this app is by far the best app for knowing the WX that you will encounter on your flight.
Weather app review
by ABraswell on 2019/10/21 02:17
Excellent and very detailed in weather forecasts.
Best, anyway. BTDT
by fjpoblam on 2019/10/20 23:05
Mi esposa agrees. (Happy wife, happy life.) Tried 20+ other weather apps, many of them several times. Always back to WeatherMate. No app (including weather apps) is perfect, because all apps are written by us poor imperfect human beans, and you may find an occasional failing in WeatherMate or in your friendly neighborhood weather station that WeatherMate elects to use. Get over it, as they say. But for the level of detail available, the quality of radar, the travel planner, and other things, you will hardly beat WeatherMate.
Like it
by Dartdarling on 2019/10/20 13:43
Goes into more detail than my other weather app. This will be my go to app
Tried them all. This is tops
by petenbama on 2019/10/20 12:06
Finally bit bullet and purchased pro. Easy 5 stars. A true weather junkie who has literally tried every free iOS weather app past 7 years along with a few disappointing paid ones. Only the discontinued Storm truly satisfied me. Weather Mate Pro is the only legit replacement imo. No choice but to support the developer for this sterling app with a very fair one time fee. In fact I think this app may be better than old Storm for several reasons, two for example: 1-GOES Satellite to see cloud cover in visible, water vapor, and infrared modes. 2- Best in class widget where you can customize and add as many parameters or complications as you wish. So helpful that I don’t need to open main app unless I want to check map. As for the map with radar and satellite it is so rich with layers and customization that you can set it just exactly for what’s important to you. And it bears repeating, this app uses the vast national network of personal weather stations to receive seconds old current data that’s truly hyper local. Along of course airport weather stations. I live in small town SE Alabama and have three personal weather stations entered all within 8 mile radius of home, one of which is just a mile distant.
Nice app with several useful features
by stephenrjr on 2019/10/19 00:55
While not perfect, I’m very happy with some of the features found in this app. The basics, like current conditions and multi-day forecast are easy to access. Radar and air quality are also implemented well. And other nice surprises, like Almanac, History, and Travel Planner are handy - need some UI improvements to make them as nice as other areas of the app.
Pretty awesome
by Marc in Postfalls on 2019/10/18 23:57
So far it’s pretty good but the icon badge, app and Apple Watch does always read the same even after updated. The app and Apple Watch does have lots of info happy about that this is a super app one of my favorite weather app
Love this app
by psysl8r on 2019/10/18 23:19
This is the absolute best weather app I have ever owned I would have paid a lot for this and truthfully did not expect much from this app for the price it knocked my socks off it has it all due to my work knowing the weather and storm directions is vital this smokes anything noaa has.

I bought the full version and using this app regularly. It’s fantastic definitely the best weather app I’ve ever downloaded. The radar is always my favorite feature incorporated into a weather app.. This one has an incredible animated radar, full screen. I love it, others should too Thanks to the team for a great app!
The Most Detailed Weather App For All iOS Devices!
by benrjohansen on 2019/10/17 15:36
This app is amazing for the level of weather information available to me. This app is also amazing for the level of customizing that information to my liking. Works great on all of my iOS devices including, iPhone, iPad, and my Apple Watch.

Excellent source of weather data
by Nip & Tuck on 2019/10/16 12:24
your maps and the details on weather facts. The maps are better than any other weather app map available. I love it as it is available. I also appreciate the daily summaries for a week. Able to look ahead as well as history. I use it daily. Thanks This is the best weather app of all I have used. It is easy to use and I can read it easily despite AMD. The map is easy to understand and estimate the arrival of weather. I love the hourly forecast. Thank you for all the wonderful data. Well I still think you are super with about all aspects of the weather station. I ditto all the above.! I still feel very positive about this app. Keep up Yuen’s details you provide in such a simple , useful, clear format.

great weather app. I would recommend it. You should checkout for yourself and the app speaks for itself great app . Updates are great . You are doing great job with app. I am happy with weather app I still would recommend it and I would give it 5 stars .
Best, tried them all WORTH EVERY PENNY
by Slimnow on 2019/10/14 08:56
5 years and still loving it!!!!UPDATE THE BEST APP!!!! Update Still best there is!!!Frustrated by the weather Channel app, I downloaded six top rated weather apps. Each week I eliminated one app but by week three I could see this was going to be the stand out. After a total of nine weeks I paid for the ad free version. Hands-down the best as far as providing me with information that I need to be ready for my day. It is easy to read and I like that it gives me humidity and dew point for each day (a must know for a good hair day😊) Nov 2017 and STILL AWESOME
Highly Customizable Watch Complications
by Studderman on 2019/10/14 06:25
This is a great app with a lot of great customizable features for the watch. Please Read Below!! I love to use the Infograph Modular and the infograph face, and when apple removed the location display on said faces, I was P’d off, Im kind of a nerd, I love the faces with many complications on them that can display as much info as possible , so after apple removed the location, I set out to download a weather app with the location displayed on the infograph and the infograph modular, well this app has it, and the customizable features it has is endless, you can customize every aspect of the watch face complication to your liking and thats no exaggeration, not at all. Its a must have!!
Great
by myneighborsarerude on 2019/10/14 00:55
So far so good. I purchased this app about one month ago so I am still getting used to all its features. It’s fairly easy to navigate and uses many stations in my area.

Great app all the way around for looking at the forecast but, also watching the future radar. Hour-by-hour forecast as well as overview statements. This app has helped me in my business to plan according to outside jobs and what to expect from possible weather. Highly recommend!
Excellent
by Domeatrius on 2019/10/10 03:16
Ok to start I live in a place to where the weather can change quickly so you need a weather app that is fast and accurate I have tried other weather apps and none of them even come close to Weather Mate Pro it is crazy how accurate this app is whatever these guys that built the app are doing they have done it right the app is a necessity for me because I am a true weather geek it has all the information I want plus more wind speed humidity how much rain we are expecting on a given day just to name a few this app is Excellent so make sure you give Weather Mate Pro a try you will not regret it well worth the money for sure
Great App

by musiccity1 on 2019/10/08 23:56
I normally wait at least a few weeks before writing a review but not today! I downloaded this app last night and have explored it for a couple of hours. We live on an island in the Eastern Caribbean and having the ability to see potential trouble isn’t just something “nice” or interesting, it can be life changing. (We survived Irma’s rath directly overhead two years ago. Which was followed in close succession by Jose and Maria.) I was relying on a competitive App which has subsequently been deprecated for no apparent reason, losing tools I find here once again! For instance, the ability to mark and detail activity on the radar. I also VERY MUCH APPRECIATE that this is a single purchase investment. I have subscription fatigue. Finding this feature rich App goes to show that the best truly can surface to the top and if competition missteps,it is someone else’s opportunity to shine. My forecast for this App are many bright, sunny, days, ahead. UPDATE: After several months of daily use through (most) of a hurricane season, I couldn’t be happier! Great, feature rich, app! It is 5 star and I would pay for an Apple TV app were it offered. Thank you again!
Best customizable weather app
by DonPablo21 on 2019/10/07 11:34
Definitely the best weather app for people who know what they want and aren't afraid to spend some time customizing it. The radar includes layers that competing apps lack (fronts-earthquakes-100 mile rings), users can choose which details to show in which order in the main app and the Today widget, and there are lots of ways to customize Apple Watch complications (including both temperature and rainfall in a single Infograph corner or circle). I just wish there was a way to display a small radar view from the main screen (instead of forcing users to click the little button on top), and for the app to remember that the details sidebar was opened in Text Only or the daily details were closed in Advanced view when the app is reopened.

Weather Mate Pro
by Mitiemouse on 2019/10/03 18:01
The best weather app I have ever tried. Here in South Florida we take our weather very seriously. After only a few seconds of opening weather mate I knew what I needed to know all concise and laid out so your eyes flowed from each day. At a glance you see date, time alerts and forecasts for the next few days, and the app when unopened shows the temperature. There are icons for full page radar, and upcoming warnings, small craft advisories and the wind and pressure. I love this app!
GREAT APP

Questionable
by carlybarly93 on 2019/10/02 15:51
Was happy with this app until today when it was showing not a storm in sight within a 100 mile radius - while it is thundering, lightening and pouring rain. Not very dependable - 9/15/19 - temperature says 68 - while EVERY other weather site says 79 or 80. Not very dependable and not what I PAID for. Think it was 9/25/19 my daughter was traveling through Springfield Il and it was rainy so hard she had to pull over because she couldn’t see for the rain. She called me and had me check radar and it was clear - no rain in Springfield and no clouds at all. This is the second time the radar failed miserably.

I used Storm for years but when it changed to Storm Radar it became useless to me. After searching many apps found WeatherMate. I have been so happy with it that I upgraded to the no commercials version. I like the ability to check out global weather by scrolling across their weather map. It is far superior to the previously mentioned apps. The latest update 7.2 is fantastic. Keep up the good work.
Not the best by a long shot
by Flyboy247us on 2019/09/29 22:55
The choice of layers is interesting but the animation feature does nothing to predict frontal movement nor the winds..these remain fixed.. the only animation is predicted radar Hardly the best app on the market Save your $5
Awesome

Wonderful
by Tap the States on 2019/09/27 23:54
Wonderful. Outstanding weather app. It is the best I have ever seen and I check it several times each day. The oral forecast from the main weather center near us is invaluable. You know exactly what's coming. Thanks!
Extremely accurate
by Kvirus11 on 2019/09/27 20:16
Best app for future forecasting and future planning. Generally always within 1-2 degrees and precipitation is almost perfect. Only 4 stars as sometimes I have to manually change stations and that is a huge pain to do. If it was a simple one touch change it would be 5 stars. Definitely the best weather app for my Apple devices.

by Zenith.2011 on 2019/09/26 17:24
I'm probably less technical than 90% of the users of this app, as I just really enjoy the differing weather stations and additional info (windspeed, rain probably, humidity, etc.) and the amazing "feels like" Idk quite why but Weathermate seems to be more accurate than the stock app, which is a huge plus for me.
Nice

Whether planning outdoor activities such as construction or recreation, this weather app is the place to go. It shows detailed prognostications of moving systems centered on your location using radar and animation. It is pretty much all one needs weather wise.
Best weather app!
by aintbe on 2019/09/15 12:38
Got a new iPad and tried another weather app, even payed for it. Waste of money! Weather Mate is free and has the best appearance, information, forecast (of course they get it wrong sometimes as does everyone, weather is fickle). Most important the radar is clear and specific making it easy to plan (do I have time to mow the lawn before it rains or do I run out and close the car windows now). There is a radar lag of up to 15 minutes which is clearly noted, but with familiarity it's workable. Map overlays provide wide variety of information. Ability to list multiple locations so I can keep up with the weather where my friends live all over the country (or the world for that matter) is great! Reporting locations are nearby so the temperature is accurate for preparing for the morning dog walk. Lots of data! I got Weather Mate when Storm went away and everything but the radar lag is as good or better. Keep up the good work!
Weather Mate is OUTSTANDING!
by Sherrie and Bill on 2019/09/15 12:10
I don’t say that lightly. I have never written a review for an app until now. I am a weather geek. I love anything weather related. Anemometers, weather vanes, radar on my iPad, etc. And I like lots of data. Weather Mate has all of that and more. I have never seen SO much data and interactive tools. The free version of the app is great but the Pro version, for a one-time low fee, is even better. I have been involved with weather agencies through SKYWARN, CoCoRaHS, and other ways. I think this app is a MUST if you’re a weather geek like me. And NO, I don’t work for Weather Mate. Thank you to the creators of this app!!!
Weather info always out of date
by Jaydekay on 2019/09/14 16:10
I had high hopes for this on the Apple Watch. However the complication data is always out of date which makes it useless. There is a setting to increase the frequency for updating the complication, but still, every single time I look at the complication it is out of date. I then have to open the app on the watch, and refresh the data. This is on the newest Apple Watch with a data plan. Very disappointing.
Weather Mate and the Pro version are great apps
by IrishTX47 on 2019/09/13 22:04
I too was so disappointed when TWC bought the Storm app, took it off the shelf, and replaced it with Storm Radar. The free version does not have half the features of Storm, and the pay version is way too expensive. So I've searched for and tried numerous other weather apps since then, and finally found Weather Mate and Weather Mate Pro. The free version is almost as good as the original Storm and much, much better than free Storm Radar. And the Pro version is even better than the original Storm, at a decent price. So far I'm very satisfied with it. Y'all have done a very good job with both the interface and the functionality.... Good designers!
Best Alternative to Storm I Found
by mechvalve on 2019/09/13 14:24
Weather Mate Pro is great. Fills void left by Storm. Great presentation on radar/map screen and detail pages. The only thing I like to see added is for the "fronts" to animate in the radar/map screen. Keep up the great work!!
Easy and Smart
by Seagas9000 on 2019/09/12 20:28
My favorite weather app was My-Cast but they shut down. I used that app well over 10 years I searched hard for an equal replacement and found this one. It is very good and the customer support will answer your questions fast. There is one feature I requested that they should add. Lightning alerts ... if there is lightning within 25 miles a thunder sound to your phone would be great. My-Cast had that and that was an awesome feature. So, I am hoping they add this ... if they do I will stay with them for good. I am still very happy wirh this app. It has evolved to be even better now. Still waiting for the thunder sound if there is lightning nearby. I highly recommend Weather Mate ! My Update 6/4/2019. I am still with Weather Mate. Better than ever ! no thunder sound lightning alert yet ... but hopeful they are considering. John
I use this frequently
by Jcb157 on 2019/09/12 00:48
I chose this originally because it is one of the few weather mapping apps I’ve run across with a “fronts” layer. In my area, the location of high and low pressure centers and the nature of the fronts between them are very helpful in understanding what weather changes I can expect. The wind animation feature, something I haven’t seen before, is very well conceived and executed! It shows me (motorcyclist, sailor, and drone pilot) at a brief glance how surface winds are flowing and how that might change in time. Combined w radar and fronts layers, I can tell a lot about what to expect in my day. When I got the app originally, the free version ads delayed the opening of the map feature, but once I paid to remove them, the app has performed well. I’ve recently begun using the (new?) option to show the map first upon opening the app, which has been very convenient. Overall, this app is working extremely well for what I need to know about the weather.
Near perfect

With the weather station on my roof, I can have instant access to temperature, wind direction and speed, humidity, relative pressure and rainfall. The apps for my iPhone are very good but this Weather Mate app is outrageous. There are 3 screens that give all the parameters from my station and it constructs detailed forecasts that I can lookup on my wrist. You can even zero in on the weather at specific hours. I first downloaded the free version and within 5 minutes I bought the pro version because I realized this is the promised land of Apple Watch Apps. All you app developers out there, check this app to see how our expensive watches can perform to the max. Excellent job Weather Mate... You have developed an app that is leaps ahead of anything I've seen made for the Apple Watch.
Best Features
by ranch_wife on 2019/09/08 13:35
Nice app!! I have several weather apps and this is the only one that easily lets me see fronts on the map. In general, way more detail at your fingertips with this app. Appreciate the developers’ commitment to customer service and response to suggestions. Keep up the great work.
Head and shoulders above the rest weather app
by TheBullridingMonkey on 2019/09/08 01:56
After looking for months for a system to replace another once reliable weather app, Weather Mate has everything I could need and then some. Even the widget is intuitive, fully customizable, and easy to read. The app itself blows anything close out of the water. If weather is something you follow for agriculture, transportation or just as someone who has a keen interest in accurate weather, you can’t go wrong.
The only app with historic weather data
by Hoosier1959 on 2019/09/07 15:21
I am a gardener (and a weather nerd), and I absolutely need to know the long-term average high and low temperature and the long-term record high and low temperature for my location each day. It's the first thing I check each morning. For years I used Intellicast, because it had a very simple graphic each day with current temp and all the other (average and record) temperature data on it. Simple and beautiful. Then Intellicast was replaced by Storm with no historic weather data. I searched and searched for a new weather app with historic weather data and found none. I finally settled on this app because it has a nice clean look, lets me choose my weather data (dewpoint, moon rise, etc) and the radar function includes future storm tracks instead of where the storm has already been. I did not find the historic weather info until I'd had this app for about a year. I'm not sure if it came with an update or if it's because it's hard to find. The historic info is under an icon called "almanac" that is only visible when you expand the top menu with the three dots in the upper right corner. Who knew? I think the app developers would be wise to highlight the fact that they have historic weather data, because no other weather app does, and many gardeners need this information. Thanks for a great app.
Great weather app
by TK777777 on 2019/09/07 02:27
Since weather channel updated and changed. Started using this. No nonsense to the point weather app. Simple and precise.
Excellent, full-featured weather app
by RavelanOne on 2019/09/06 23:37
Outstanding app! I have used the pro versions of at least six or seven weather apps, and this one is by far the best. I rely on it every day. The forecast summaries are pretty good, but I always open up the map to see what’s coming on the radar, etc. Tons of features, very customizable, so you can have as spare or as detailed a screen as you choose, and to top it off, the app is beautiful to look at. In months and months of using it, I haven’t noticed any major bugs, outages, or failures. Deserves 10 stars, but we’re limited to 5. :)
Complete

One app that is complete and has the graphics to enhance the quality even more!
Great App

Awesome program. It’s everything you need weather wise at your finger tips.
Temperature badge constantly reads 127
by scsinusy on 2019/09/05 11:42
I know it's warm where I am but it's not that warm. If I open the app it will fix it but not for long. I have even recently deleted and reinstalled it. Other than that it's a great app.
Very good.

Great weather app. A lot a really nice features.
mostly best of the rest

less tracking too
Best Weather App Ever
by Pokerplayer-001 on 2019/09/04 14:55
I am a Weather fanatic. I own a weather station. I watch the weather every day. This app is absolutely the best weather app I have ever used. If you are using any other mobile weather app you need to delete it an install this one. I rarely if ever post reviews good or bad, but the quality of this app deserves my time to comment on it.
Slow To Update & Innovate
by Ken R on 2019/09/04 05:40
While there are a few similarities to my favorite weather app, Storm, Weather Mate has recurring content malfunction issues (i.e. radar shows a clean sky, but it’s pouring rain outside), a poorly written wind display engine (has to constantly refresh the entire screen each time the view has been moved or zoomed), no jet stream winds view, a legends screen that covers up the entire weather view when viewing, and using wind lines (as opposed to wind arrows) causes a crash every time you attempt to use them. In addition, I’ve been asking for an animated fronts view for over a year. Many of these issues are caused by a lack of updates and innovation.
Great weather app
by Hwr2 on 2019/09/04 01:24
Easy to use and good forecasts. Great interface.
Been a great help tracking Hurricane Dorian
by VIFury on 2019/09/04 01:22
Here in FL all the up to date notifications and radar customization to show me what info I needed when I needed it. Worth the money, please continue to support this app. May help save many lives!
BEST weather app for iphone and watch!
by fwanders on 2018/11/19 18:43
Weather mate pro has everything i wanted and more for following all the weather. and with the new watch complication, you get all the amazing weather details on your watch. plus the same alerts/ warnings/ etc you get on your phone. the amount of customization you can choose is amazing. for example, to start, choose the weather station you prefer from the places you've picked. then customize the different complications on your watch. i give it 5 stars! since, nothing is perfect, here's what i'd like to see changed. change the big part in the top box, it gives me the feeling of an older digital alarm clock. i always wished that the time display and blue bulls eye/wind direction gauge was done differently. and definitely not so big, it's out of sync with the rest of the more modern and somehow friendlier looking graphics. i like the big weather graphic in the top box though (sun behind the clouds, sun, etc...). and lastly, i love all the weather details now available on my watch. but in the future, being able to view all the details for more than one location (current or home), on the watch, would be great. so, home/current location plus other picks (los angeles, washington d.c., etc.) available to view on the watch. even so, this weather app still stomps all the others. for loads of clear, useful, detailed, timely and customizable weather data (in the usa and beyond), this is the weather app to have.
Good Information
by Why I purchased this app on 2018/05/08 13:36
This weather app gives great detailed information concerning weather in my area and state. It is very customizable in selecting how I want to be informed. A good map section I can customize to give up to date weather and even direction of storm systems and information when I tap on the small directional grid and gives air quality reports. In the Advanced section of Settings, it takes a little time to get to know the features and there is even a section that explains weather contitions. You really have to explore this app to see how it can inform you on weather conditions. Gives a look ahead by hour, day or week and an active wind guage to show the direction and speed, has a red bar for server alerts, a voice option to give conditions. There is even a Travel Planner showing conditions when you are scheduled to take a flight. It will select the closest station to give a more accurate prediction or you can select a station in your area. I reccommend the Pro just to support such apps as this one that really gives the kind of information needed to be well informed. Well designed and layed out to tell you what you need and want to know. There is even an option for earthquakes. If any con I have to give it, the small print because of the detailed layout, but it is still very legable. I must admit I have the iphone se (like it very much). Yet, this is a great app to have on your iphone that gives such detailed information!!
Absolutely essential for both quick & detailed weather info
by Mc7859 on 2019/07/17 21:15
I’ve gotten 90% of the weather apps available. This is one of the 3 “must-have” weather apps, in my opinion, along with Carrot & RadarScope. This app comes closest to replacing the radar page of the unfortunately killed Storm app (how can you take one of the best weather apps out there, and intentionally deprecate it completely???? - but I digress...), especially with the 7/19 enhancements to the storm cell info. It’s the ONLY app that displays user-selectable data from nearby Personal Weather Stations. I’m REALLY happy to see the new update that allows display of graphs for any PWS & date. The customizing options alone set this apart from any other app out there, except perhaps Carrot. The latest options improving Apple Watch complications are also awesome. Weather Mate Pro & Carrot each do their job very differently, and both do it extremely well, but they vary significantly in their approach, so they’re both essential in my book. They both get a place on my #1 home screen on both my iPad & iPhone, so that should tell you something. Just get it. What else would I like to see? The ability to quickly compare more weather forecast sources and more PWS data combinations in the map layer. My “wish” list for just about any other app I have is 10-15 items long, for reference. Weather Mate Pro is simply outstanding, period.

The only viable alternative to Storm on iOS
by 826059 on 2018/10/29 15:59
For some reason, only this app and what used to be Storm (but is now whatever the weather channel monstrosity app is called) will show you real time weather fronts. If you know how to look at a weather map, the position and speed of an incoming warm or cold front can tell you a lot about what the weather will be like for the day. You can supplement that info with current radar, temps, the NWS’ forecast discussion, wind speed, dew point, pressure, etc. This one has all of that, (which means everything that Storm had), except with a much more outdated GUI. Like as if we were still on iOS 5. But I’ll HAPPILY take a bad looking weather app with tons of great info over a garbage weather app (i.e. the app formerly known as Storm) without any real info. It’s ironic, because those people basically turned Storm into an app that somehow looks worse than this app, which is saying a lot since this app looks like its stuck in 2011. Like everyone in the reviews is saying: This is the only weather app that’s a suitable replacement for the old Storm app. Developers of this app will get 5 stars from me, regardless, if for no other reason than its the only app which shows positions of cold fronts relative your location. Update the GUI and I’ll give you that sixth star! ;)
Best Weather App Out There!!!!
by fly cfi on 2019/06/12 11:41
Best weather app out there! The free version is great. The paid version is AWESOME!!!! I have several weather apps on my phone for backup purposes. This one (paid version) surpasses them all. This app has yet to disappoint me, and believe me, it takes a lot to impress me for I have extremely high standards and expectations. Just a little update to my review. As of April 2019 I have now had this app for at least 3+ years and I am about to say something that is unprecedented coming from me. After all these years I still rank this app with 5 big ones for this app has yet to disappoint me in anyway. And the one time I did have to contact customer service with a radio issue they got back to me IMMEDIATELY!!! Not only did they get back to me immediately, but the issue was resolved in a reasonable amount of time. Unlike another app out there that prefixes all their stuff with NOAA, and after contacting this competitor several times. I am still waiting on a simple acknowledgement from them for at least two years now. So, if you are looking for a high quality weather app that you can DEPEND on this is the one you will want to go with. Oh yeah, one more thing not only is there customer service fast, but they are super friendly as well!!!
Storm is gone, thankfully these guys exist!
by Crazykidbig58 on 2018/10/21 22:41
EDIT! This app is still the best app out there. I actually like this app more than the original Storm app which is hard to believe. Also, I emailed the developer to ask for some enhancements and they replied within a day and said that they were already on the list to add to the app! Truly a great find when it comes to weather apps. Storm was my go to app for weather. It had a feature set that was perfect for just about anyone. Weather channel bought them and they essentially shelved the app. I must have downloaded 10 other apps trying to find something to replace Storm, but nothing came close. Until now... Weather Mate Pro is not just as good as Storm, it’s actually better. The available layers and feature set is far superior to what Storm had. I am so happy to have found this app! The only thing missing is the distance rings around your location. I think Storm used it for lightning tracking, but it was very handy to see the distance rings of 25, 50, 75, and 100 miles right on the radar. You could look at the movement of an incoming storm and quickly see the speed and estimate the actual timing it would be arriving. Hopefully they will add it in the future. Anyways, great app that I highly recommend!
Pretty close to perfect...
by Tamanzi on 2018/08/27 15:53
Update: Finally formatted to fit iPhone X screen! Thank you! Still waiting on UI update and map zoom start feature a year after this original review was written, but once again customer support is the BEST in the App Store – or anywhere else for that matter... The reintroduction of the WeatherRadio is fabulous. AND, the lightning, storm tracking and other layer data on the map is extensive and pretty accurate as far as I can tell. Although the UI could perhaps use a little modern spit and polish, this app has something even better going for it than the best weather forecasting -- it's got responsive customer support. The rest should take a lesson. All that aside -- I have found the forecasting very accurate and the oodles of customizable data very welcome. I live in Southwest Florida where weather can change on a dime, so the more data the better. The only complaint I had about their super quick-loading radar was that the initial view was so zoomed out it takes a lot of pinching to zoom in to my city. But they responded immediately to let me know they are working on providing a custom zoom setting. Still waiting on that, but a tiny inconvenience. Awesome. So five stars even if it's not yet perfect.
Weather Mate Pro is the PWS app everyone should have..
by CJ Streett on 2019/03/12 17:08
Weather Mate Pro is a perfect companion for PWS (Personal Weather Station) owners or observers. After a couple of months of running WMP, I can, for at least my setup, view my home PWS and have Official NWS observations along with the community of PWS observers all in one excellent app with accurate historical data. Access to Official NWS statements without having to use other apps to me a great bonus. I have eliminated several paid and free apps. The radar has storm tracks that’s similar to the popular Storm/WU. Storm notifications are so far quick and accurate. This app literally takes the good out of several now defunct apps or ones that have changed over time. The features seem endless. I have been looking for a PWS app with this much reference and customization for years. This app Pro version is well worth the $5 fee. This weather app is perfect for casual weather and for those wanting to view their PWS systems in the weather community. I eliminated several paid and free apps because of this Weather Mate Pro. I hope you have such good fortune as well. Thank you to the developers of this app!
Finally, a worthy replacement for Storm
by abandonedwest on 2018/06/09 01:19
As others have noted, Storm used to be *the* app for weather nerds, balancing radar views with forecast data and practical usability. But then The Weather Channel got its hands on it and all was lost. I must’ve tried two dozen weather apps over the last few months looking for an alternative, and Weather Mate is absolutely the best choice. Top-notch data presented completely and intelligently with a host of options for reordering or culling how it’s displayed. No “cutesy” reinventions that dumb down forecast information to barely useful tidbits or a single obtuse icon like so many apps do. I also like that it’s one of the few apps that displays the full NWS forecast text (if you want it). Finally, it’s also one of the cheapest, with no subscription required. I like that. My one criticism would be (and why I give it four stars instead of five) there are elements of the user interface that look like they’re straight out of iOS 6. Hard-coded old style buttons and widgets that really should be modernized. It gives the app the appearance of abandonware. But I’m willing to forgive this oversight because everything else about it is so good. Kudos to the developers For keeping the data plentiful and at the forefront of the app’s purpose.
I’d say it’s worth the money 👍🏼
by JodiWoo on 2019/03/15 13:14
It’s not perfect, but it’s an all-around good app. It’s certainly the best-looking weather app I’ve seen, and aesthetics are important to me. The graphics and customization options are great — even my husband commented on how nice it looked when he saw me use it for the first time. I love (the idea of) the temperature app badge and the fact that I can customize the app and widget to show (or not show!) any piece of weather information I want. The biggest issue I have, and the reason for 4 stars instead of 5, is that even though I have all the permissions in place and the background refresh setting as it should be, it doesn’t always update itself... which means the app badge and the widget are sometimes wrong until I actually open the app and manually refresh it. It’s easy to do, but it defeats the purpose if those 2 extra features. And again, it’s only on occasion and not all the time, but they’re incorrect often enough that I don’t really trust either of them to be accurate... making them pretty useless in a state like Ohio, where yesterday it got up to 73° and today it’ll get down to 30°. If it doesn’t update hourly, it’s probably going to be very wrong!
Great replacement for Storm!
by Ned Buntline on 2018/06/05 16:20
<Edit 6/5/18> REALLY happy with this app and the responsiveness of the WeatherMate staff. Dropped a couple of suggestions to customer service a week ago and today, those features are in! I even received an email from Wendy at WeatherMate notifying me of the changes. What a great, responsive company! NICE JOB! Compare this to the fiasco going on with Storm Radar. DylogicApps, you’ve got a customer for life. <End Edit> For those of you like me who feel The Weather Channel screwed you by dumping a great product called Storm, replacing it with an inferior radar widget, here’s your new weather app! It pretty much does everything Storm did except the wind and jet stream animations. The layout is pretty good, and the radar map works great. You get the front lines and pressure indicators. It also allows you to view personal weather stations. These two items alone would sell me, especially after the new Storm Radar app dumped them. Includes detailed forecasts, and other cool items like weather radio. This is an app for weather buffs, and a great pickup for those looking for their Storm replacement. Nice job!
Kudos to both the app and the customer service
by derekbrumley on 2018/01/29 07:13
I love the app and the way it presents a wealth of data in a way that is easy to configure and take in. I'm particularly impressed with the plethora of options for the Apple Watch and its Complications. I did, however, have a problem with the Watch version and its apparent unwillingness to accept my preference for metric display units as selected in the iPhone version. I contacted customer service and received a reply, within a day, that told me concisely how to fix the problem. In case other users may be experiencing a similar issue, I present herewith the advice given: "Please open the Weather Mate app on both your iPhone & Apple Watch simultaneously. Go to iPhone app settings, change the Temperature setting to Fahrenheit & then back to Celsius. This should fix the problem on Watch app." It worked like a charm! I then repeated the procedure with the other settings in turn and watched as they all fell into line. This now my favorite weather app for iOS/WatchOS.
My new go-to weather app!
by Gaffer937 on 2018/03/03 17:34
Just found my new go-to weather app. Was a long time user of the Weather Underground and subsequent Storm apps, but recent changes in the Storm business model has prompted me to go looking for a new app; and, I think I have found it. The amount of information available rivals that of Storm. Weather Mate has a comprehension amount of information available that can be customized to one's particular interests/needs. As a weather geek, I especially appreciate the availability of weather fronts, as well as the centers of circulation (highs and lows). Most weather apps only show radar information on their maps. In my mind, knowing what the fronts look like helps me to not only understand what is driving the local weather that appears on the radar; but, to interpreted what the future weather will be. Only annoyance I have found so far is with the main screen. The prominent display and location of the clock/day/date is distracting and not warranted. I would rather see the high/low temperature data swapped with the clock data. I am using the app for weather information, not as my watch. Keep up the good work.
Finally I’ve Replaced wunderground
by Dangah Zonnnneeeee on 2019/08/31 10:31
This app has finally been a complete replacement for weatherunderground and storm. When the weatherchannel bought wunderground years ago nothing really seemed different until all of a sudden they ruined the storm and wunderground apps; forced subscription charges took features away from the apps and pushed the weather channel’s own app on you(it’s terrible they just want you to watch their tv channel). Anyway weathermate does everything both storm and wunderground did only better and more in depth! I will happily pay a subscription for this app; it even goes in depth enough to offer you the amplitude of each individual lightning strike when you click on a strike...... Now we can only hope that the creators stay true to their passion of weather and do not sell out to a certain channel that loves ads and viewership but seems to hate the weather. Keep about your wits, Know yourself and who you came in with.
I use this frequently
by Jcb157 on 2019/09/12 00:48
I chose this originally because it is one of the few weather mapping apps I’ve run across with a “fronts” layer. In my area, the location of high and low pressure centers and the nature of the fronts between them are very helpful in understanding what weather changes I can expect. The wind animation feature, something I haven’t seen before, is very well conceived and executed! It shows me (motorcyclist, sailor, and drone pilot) at a brief glance how surface winds are flowing and how that might change in time. Combined w radar and fronts layers, I can tell a lot about what to expect in my day. When I got the app originally, the free version ads delayed the opening of the map feature, but once I paid to remove them, the app has performed well. I’ve recently begun using the (new?) option to show the map first upon opening the app, which has been very convenient. Overall, this app is working extremely well for what I need to know about the weather.
Best weather app!
by aintbe on 2019/09/15 12:38
Got a new iPad and tried another weather app, even payed for it. Waste of money! Weather Mate is free and has the best appearance, information, forecast (of course they get it wrong sometimes as does everyone, weather is fickle). Most important the radar is clear and specific making it easy to plan (do I have time to mow the lawn before it rains or do I run out and close the car windows now). There is a radar lag of up to 15 minutes which is clearly noted, but with familiarity it's workable. Map overlays provide wide variety of information. Ability to list multiple locations so I can keep up with the weather where my friends live all over the country (or the world for that matter) is great! Reporting locations are nearby so the temperature is accurate for preparing for the morning dog walk. Lots of data! I got Weather Mate when Storm went away and everything but the radar lag is as good or better. Keep up the good work!
Still the only weather app I use
by Eriptron on 2019/06/05 16:17
Oh, I almost forgot. WMP has all the historical charts you could want, Update: Two things I have a habit of collecting, calculator apps and weather apps. Don’t ask me why. Once I found Weather Mate Pro, I stopped looking for them (there hasn’t been a better weather app...don’t think there will be as Weather Mate Pro gives you it all and presented very logically)! You can track your local weather (where you live, your home, not just you city or town. I’m an active person out of doors and I don’t own a car, so I walk a lot and I jog. With WMP I can walk between the rain drops. My neighbors frequently comment about how lucky I am that I missed the rain. I will use WMP’s weather forecasts and map to judge when to leave and, when to get inside or return home by. Rarely have I been rained on. I’m better than the Professional forecasters but I have an unfair advantage. I have my own Professional, WMP, and Professionals have to generalize for a large area with their local forecasts. Support is still ‘excellent’. They submitted a glitch report to their developers for something minor I found. Keep up the great work! —- Still my go-to weather app. After seeing weather apps come and go, I’ve used this app for years now. It provides more information in an easy to use format than any weather app I’ve used. Support is fast, good, professional and friendly. I highly recommend this app!
Awesome App, awesome developers
by Millibar on 2018/08/27 02:01
This is a terrific app that is very flexible and customizable. I highly recommend it. I’ve been using it several years now and it has consistently given me the detailed timely information I need. While it can present you with tons of data, it is also great for more casual users. Clean solid and intuitive interface and lots of thoughtful well executed features. The developers are also really pleasant and responsive. I reached out to them a while ago because of a glitch with the radar overlay layers. They got back to me right away and had already been working on the fix. They gave me an easy work around to use until they completed their fix. Also had to reach out to them about a setting I was having trouble with, (totally user error) and they were super pleasant and guided me to the setting. You’ll be pleased if you get the app and it’ll probably be on your home page in no time!
Was once a weather app I thought reliable
by Tyson Blake on 2019/05/22 00:06
Over the last month the quality of information has been declining with this app. Predictions changing by the hour and many times not even correct. As I sit here with Severe Thunderstorm Warnings and Tornado Warnings around me in SeMO, this weather app decides to become the most unreliable thing ever. This storm system has been talked about all day and every time I checked the radar in the app it never once displayed a proper "Watch" or "Warning" issued by the NWS as the system has moved across MO all day. The only thing the radar has shown is "Watch" and "Warnings" issued from the previous day. I have uninstalled and reinstalled the app 3 times, on my iPhone 7+ and iPad Mini 2 (both up to date iOS and app version), to find no fix. I have had to find a different app that is keeping properly displayed NWS alerts and an up to date radar displayed, because if the power goes out, my iPhone and iPad are all I have to rely on. Not sure how much I spent on this, but I'm pretty confident it was money wasted. At least it wasn't the worst app I've wasted money on. I also have pictures of the radar if the developer would like them.
A more than worthy replacement for Storm
by pa.williams on 2019/08/03 12:37
When Storm was put on the shelf, I looked at several apps as a replacement. None reached Storm’s level of detail except Weather Mate, which actually surpassed Storm with its historical almanac and travel features. Hourly and daily forecasts are superb in the breadth and depth of detail. Including things like dew point give us weather junkies data that we can use to formulate in our own minds what the weather will be. Stored complete forecasts for 10 locations and the ease of moving from one to another is a great feature. Well worth the cost. It’s the first app I open when I wake in the morning. To the developer: please change the clock. It’s too big. Put the time under the date. Use this valuable screen real estate to display a thumbnail of the radar for that location. If that’s not possible, use the space to display the data in a larger size. It’s a weather app, not a timepiece.
Most Complete Weather App
by Roy L. Oak on 2018/06/22 04:01
As a fruit grower and IPM Specialist, I depend on a complete and accurate weather app to make critical pest management decisions. I used WU Storm which gave me everything I needed including animated Surface Air and Jet Stream movements. And we all know what happened to Storm. The Weather Channel decided to can an excellent app for their very inferior Storm Radar. After weeks of searching, I found WeatherMate. The only thing it was missing was storm tracks and animated Surface Air/Jet Stream and they have since added the storm tracks with severity and hail info. This is critical to fruit growing. As far as accuracy, I get the most accurate data available for my location.... From my own weather station in the orchard. And can check three other stations within a 5 mile radius to make sure my calibrations are consistent. This is the best app going right now.......and will be the absolute best out there once Air Stream animations are added!
The best weather app I’ve found so far
by i dunno.....lol on 2018/08/18 12:12
The best weather app I’ve found so far. I was using the Storm app until it recently got run into the ground by a certain weather company. This app is very customizable, giving you the option to select weather parameters (temp, heat index, wind chill, rain amount, pressure, cloud cover and a whole lot more) for current conditions, hourly forecast and even the Notification Center widget. I also like the fact that you can choose weather stations at airports. The weather history and travel planner is a cool idea too, although I wish you could pick/search locations for these instead of having to use a weather station (as it is now I have to add a new location to get that location’s weather history or use the travel planner for that location). You can also change the name of your locations. I would highly recommend this app as anyone’s go to weather app.
Exactly what I wanted.
by @prilsJust2Cute on 2018/12/21 04:05
I have spent so much money on related apps. Living in FL the weather can change by the hour. I purchased this on a perfectly sunny day after looking across the water towards my home inland and noticing the dark skies. I know that doesn’t necessarily mean it’s storming where I live EXACTLY so I started looking for a NEW RELIABLE APP. I decided to go ahead and purchase the pro version. What sold me was the fact it used the actual NOAA RADAR and the radar I could scroll minute by minute using my finger instead of having to use a “pause/play” feature. I literally can narrow it down to the minute it’s going to start raining or any crazy weather is possible! So far I’ve tracked winds for fishing and even Hurricane Michael and the wind speed! It’s been amazing! I have deleted all other weather apps. My only complaint is I don’t have the loud default alerts for serious weather. Once I activated this app it pretty much cancelled all other default weather notifications for my iPhone.
Near perfect app
by GWD4 on 2019/07/23 04:56
This weather app is really nice. It delivers forecast data in an easy to read style. The models it uses seem to agree frequently with a weather underground, which is good. However, there is a bit more data presented. Where the app shines is the map section. This app gives the option to see position of highs, lows, fronts and the like. The only thing missing is a dry line. All in all, it’s a great weather app. UPDATE: I’ve used app several months, and found no problems. It has replaced Storm as my preferred app. Second Update: still satisfied. I really like to be able to see the winds at various levels. Only change I’d make is showing highs and lows more prominently on map, showing the dry line. If they want 6 stars, add things like water vapor imagery and the like. It would also be great if the fronts, etc moved with the radar. Actually, no matter how much they add, I’d ask for more!
This has become my go to weather app
by C Farber on 2018/10/21 14:14
I’m kind of a weather app nerd.. I have just over a dozen. I used to call WU (weather underground) my favorite, but it got buggy and less reliable. So I switched to this one and have yet to be disappointed. It has all the weather info you could possibly want, it correctly locates me every time, it has a watch complication (sometimes the temp updating lags, but I think they are all like that). It has a decent radar, I like the recent addition of the radius rings to help see how far away storms are. The only thing I think is lacking is if you use carrot or dark sky, they give you a better idea for when rain will start/stop and have some nice graphs. Also sometimes I just want to see the current radar picture, but it has to load the last several hours to animate which takes some time.. But an app can never be perfect!
Behavior with Apple Watch=YUCK!
by debsee on 2019/04/26 17:09
I love everything about this app on my iPhone and iPad. However, the way notifications work on my watch is EXTREMELY FRUSTRATING. It took me the better part of a week to find out what the random audible notification I kept getting on my watch with no visible indication what the sound was for. Honestly I don’t know how I determined it was this app, but it is. (When I take it off of one of my complications it goes away-add & the notification come back) I don’t want random audio notifications, and there is not way to turn the audible off. I’ve turned it off on my phone but there’s not option on the watch to disable sound notifications. Everything else this app does on my watch is exactly what I want a weather app to do. It’s info and data rich and in my area it can be extremely important to have the extra info when the weather changes often and rapidly at times. **NOTE: This notification problem was not an issue until the most recent app update.
Changes for the better
by Conway Corp User on 2019/06/05 16:20
I purchased this app to replace WU Storm that just went by the wayside. After my purchase, the app crashed, radar didn’t work, etc. I notified the developers and deleted the app. I was informed that changes were being made, and to my surprise, all of the issues were corrected. The Storm app was the best weather app I’ve ever used, and this is the closest thing to it. This app would actually be better than the Storm app but for two things: 1. Some sort of radar view on the home screen or the ability to set the radar view as the default. 2. The ability to “quick pick” map layers in a mini toolbar on the map screen like storm track, watches/warnings, etc. I live in Tornado Alley and having the ability to quickly view different views on the radar is very beneficial. But those two things are just “wish list” items.
Excellent Weather App
by DSims08 on 2019/04/26 08:44
Like many, I have been bemoaning the loss of the excellent Storm weather app. Having tried at least ten other weather apps trying to find a good replacement, I had about given up. I finally tried Weather Mate and am pleased to say that it is an excellent app, and comes the closest to being as good as Storm. Weather Mate Pro gives you the basics at a quick glance, but also provides more detailed information for those needing it, as well as for weather enthusiasts. Bottom line: If you have been looking for a Storm replacement, or just a good, all around weather app, you can't go wrong with Weather Mate. I am quite pleased with the app as is, but would eventually like to see more stations added to the NOAA radio, more alert notification selections, and the ability to pick multiple alert overlays rather than just one or all.
Was hoping that Weather Mate would fix some of its issues. AND THEY DID!
by flyfishindude on 2019/06/06 14:23
After an exhausting search over a year ago to replace Storm, I decided to go with Weather Mate. There were Holes in its features. But those seem to have now been fixed! Noticeably for me was the lack of a jet/wind stream indicator. Once that was added, it somehow conflicted with the satellite imagery and it took several months to resolve that. Now both operate together on this platform well. My most recently discovered feature that I will be using frequently is the smokecover indicator located within the active fire feature. For most of us in the Western US, this may prove to be a very valuable tool during the Summer months. I don’t think any app is perfect, and would give WM a 4.5 if offered. But given it’s not, this is as close to perfect as any weather app I’ve found! 5 stars.
Best Apple Watch App
by Midlyfn on 2019/09/08 14:25
I recently bought and installed an Ambient Weather Station on my roof. With the weather station on my roof, I can have instant access to temperature, wind direction and speed, humidity, relative pressure and rainfall. The apps for my iPhone are very good but this Weather Mate app is outrageous. There are 3 screens that give all the parameters from my station and it constructs detailed forecasts that I can lookup on my wrist. You can even zero in on the weather at specific hours. I first downloaded the free version and within 5 minutes I bought the pro version because I realized this is the promised land of Apple Watch Apps. All you app developers out there, check this app to see how our expensive watches can perform to the max. Excellent job Weather Mate... You have developed an app that is leaps ahead of anything I've seen made for the Apple Watch.
A Weather App that actually Works!
by pdfromwv on 2019/07/17 19:39
Since the Weather Channel has ruined apps that used to work, this is my go to wx app. The fronts are actually displayed correctly! I use it every day. Highly recommend! Update: Still my favorite. Does everything that I need it to do. Update #2: latest update changed how thunderstorm cells are displayed. The icons are bigger but cover the raw radar information so much that I had to turn storm tracks off. Also, tapping on a thunder storm cell displays information about the cell, but too much! There needs to be an option to toggle off the laundry list of generally useless details. Storm tops (the most useful information about a thunderstorm’s severity) are displayed now in meters versus feet. Aviation users in the US still use feet and that would be preferred or make it a toggled option. Just friendly input!
The developers really care
by Bike-Boy on 2018/04/15 13:22
The developers of this app have poured their hearts into it, and it shows. It’s full of virtually everything any weather hound could want, with multiple user options on what to display. The graphics could use some more design work, but apparently these very responsive developers are already hard at work on that too. Kudos! I like the text descriptions of the day’s weather, summarizing all the numbers. Also cool to see the current temperature displayed right on the home page icon. Clever! Maybe someday the icon itself will change to picture the current weather, though I imagine Apple may not allow that. Some quirks still to be worked out: displaying negative numbers for the temperature (common for Celsius) and textual wind speed in knots. Yet the wind speed and direction compass is excellent, even showing the wind direction moving slightly to indicate that wind is never steady. (I’m a sailor so I’m intimately familiar with this.) Evidently the developers are also planning to make the clock smaller (we all have many other sources of the time), which should allow some of the more weather-related displays to enlarge. One suggestion to the developers: don’t worry about adding more features for now, at least before the display is revised. This app has plenty!
Awesome app
by RLewis2492 on 2019/06/02 13:06
Like so many others, I counted on the Storm app for accurate forecasts. When it was discontinued, I downloaded nearly every weather app available to find a satisfactory replacement. The first thing I would do is compare the reported temperature with the actual temperature at my location. If it was off, I would delete the app and try another one. I wish I had seen this app earlier - it would have saved me a lot of aggravation. This app presents not only accurate temperature, but the forecast is typically right on the mark. The app presents a wealth of information in a very useable format, including current conditions and an accurate view of what’s coming. I have relied on the new Storm app for radar data, but this app’s radar presentation seems to be every bit as accurate and readable. I wish I had found this app sooner.
Best app to replace Storm!
by Kismet423 on 2018/05/26 17:22
Weather Underground’s Storm app has been my favorite weather app for years, but unfortunately it was taken over by TWC and they shut it down. Their new “TWC Storm” app is awful and does not have the weather data and map layers I desire, so I set out in search of a new weather app. You could say I’m a bit picky about my weather app. There are tons of apps out there and I downloaded them all to try out, but none of the others have what Weather Mate offers. I love: -The hybrid map setting. -The dual/overlapping satellite and radar layer. -The flexibility to adjust layers: I usually always have the sat/radar layer, storm tracks, weather fronts, lightning, and hurricane layers on since we live in FL. -The ability to adjust the weather parameters/data I see in the current and hourly forecasts (this has more data than the Storm app!). -The intuitiveness of the layout, such as daily to hourly forecasts. -The customer service. I have had a couple email exchanges with them and have received fast responses back. I believe a good weather app should provide you with all the data you could ever want, but allow you to configure it to suit your needs in an intuitive manner with a clean look. This app does that! (I liked the app so much I decided to buy the ad free version.)
Great Apple Watch App
by Timwhite1 on 2019/06/04 20:04
Great Apple Watch app with hourly and extended forecasts - vertical scroll with temp and conditions together like we all expect. Not sure why Apple thought we’d like to read the conditions and temperature on separate screens around a circular dial - I immediately went looking for a replacement to the native Watch weather app. But these guys at WeatherMate got it right. Awesome app and great new options in the Watch face complications with the latest update. The iPhone app was also very handy in the radar view during recent spring tornados and severe storms. Has a unique graph overlay and draw tool to easily estimate how close you are to the storm (miles / km). Their support team is super responsive too - same day or next day responses and even developed feature enhancements within weeks. I’m impressed with this team and their product. Thank you!
If you miss WU Storm...
by Marlinspike Hitch on 2019/05/18 17:48
After the abomination The Weather Channel turned the elegant WU Storm into I was at a loss for a weather app that let me “see” what was going on by displaying the fronts, highs, lows and wind patterns. Thank goodness for this app. It delivered on what I missed in WU Storm and more (how about the addition of NOAA radio as well!). I’m anxiously awaiting an interface update as the current one is a bit clunky but nonetheless this is my go to weather app bar none. Nice job! Update, After using this app for a few weeks and exploring what it has to offer, I am even more impressed with the abundance of tools at my finger tips. It also seems more accurate than the “hyper local” apps. The only thing I would suggest is a more robust alert/notification section. This is a superior app well worth the few dollars for the Pro version. Buy this app!
Great Weather app
by Honeyresin on 2019/03/27 16:18
This is a good all round weather app. I like the hour by hour and the dashboard layout. It is buggy and wildly inaccurate sometimes but it gets fixed quickly. Seems to have a problem correlating displayed data into forecast. In example reported 20 mph sustained wind speed reported in bar but wind chill does not reflect that and button display still says 4 mph. I don't like that I can't see the temperature in all my cities in a list so I can compare them. I do like I can set my own parameters for what appears on my screen. This app really gathers a massive amount of weather parameters in one place. I like having all those parameters, but if that data is not updated to current conditions in a timely manner it can't be utilised. I have to fact check against another app. But hey its just weather and it is fun.
Excellent for go-to weather app
by Flyingfilly on 2019/07/24 16:57
Being somewhat weather obsessed, I have several weather apps. As noted elsewhere, it used to be that one in particular was priority. Over the years, that app lost its most valuable features as it morphed into ever evolving names (Intellicast, Storm, then Storm Radar) and has now become a high priced subscription app with very few and just basic features. Weather Mate Pro has made all of the difference! It contains far more features than other weather apps, and supplies a wealth of information. The only criticism that I currently have is that it does not send notifications as selected. Perhaps with further settings tweaks or an update, this might be resolved. Overall, I am very pleased with Weather Mate’s capabilities and am glad to have found it because of another review.
Western Slope Colorado
by older than most on 2019/05/01 14:36
With the death of wunderground,and whatever Storm was called before it was trashed, many of us thought it was going to be near impossible to find those kinds of sites again. I’m an advanced amateur, ex sailor and know my way around most of the charts and maps made available by USWS and noaa and do my own forecasts for myself here in western Colorado/eastern Utah and for a few friends on the west coast just to see how close I can get. Anyway, there’s lots here and after a few times around the site and all its layers etc, it’s become a worthy replacement for Wunderground. The only issue that stops me from the Top Rating is that the frontal boundaries do not move with visual/radar images. Since the “active” screen is “Past” by some 45-70 seconds it would be nice to see the frontal boundaries keep up with the radar/satellite imagery. Still, it’s great site, with good support. Well done.
Tried them all. This is tops
by petenbama on 2019/10/20 12:06
Finally bit bullet and purchased pro. Easy 5 stars. A true weather junkie who has literally tried every free iOS weather app past 7 years along with a few disappointing paid ones. Only the discontinued Storm truly satisfied me. Weather Mate Pro is the only legit replacement imo. No choice but to support the developer for this sterling app with a very fair one time fee. In fact I think this app may be better than old Storm for several reasons, two for example: 1-GOES Satellite to see cloud cover in visible, water vapor, and infrared modes. 2- Best in class widget where you can customize and add as many parameters or complications as you wish. So helpful that I don’t need to open main app unless I want to check map. As for the map with radar and satellite it is so rich with layers and customization that you can set it just exactly for what’s important to you. And it bears repeating, this app uses the vast national network of personal weather stations to receive seconds old current data that’s truly hyper local. Along of course airport weather stations. I live in small town SE Alabama and have three personal weather stations entered all within 8 mile radius of home, one of which is just a mile distant.
Best customizable weather app
by DonPablo21 on 2019/10/07 11:34
Definitely the best weather app for people who know what they want and aren't afraid to spend some time customizing it. The radar includes layers that competing apps lack (fronts-earthquakes-100 mile rings), users can choose which details to show in which order in the main app and the Today widget, and there are lots of ways to customize Apple Watch complications (including both temperature and rainfall in a single Infograph corner or circle). I just wish there was a way to display a small radar view from the main screen (instead of forcing users to click the little button on top), and for the app to remember that the details sidebar was opened in Text Only or the daily details were closed in Advanced view when the app is reopened.
Real Weather Information
by Tunbridge1 on 2019/07/15 20:51
Finally. An app that provides meaningful weather information. I used Storm for a long time and thought it was a great app until it was dumbed down this year. It’s replacement has shown the same frontal information for over 2 months now with no response to this issue from support. Although I just downloaded Weather Mate Pro and don’t have much experience with the app, I’m finding the information it provides fantastic. Frontal info. Historic weather. Great weather depiction display. NWS Forecast Discussion - all with very fast refreshing. Plus there’s the NWS Radio broadcast!!! I applaud the developers of this app for providing a REAL weather app. Update: After using this app for months, I can say it’s living up to my first impressions. A great weather app for casual or more serious users! Update #2: The data source for the Windstream apparently was down for awhile. I reached out to support who told me it would be available with the next update. Update just out and Windstream is now functioning along with other enhancements. Most importantly though, support reached out in an email to let me know of the fix. How outstanding is this!!!! If I could give 10 stars I would without hesitation.
Try it, you’ll like it.
by Harley Nut on 2018/11/02 02:51
I’m an avid motorcyclist so weather is very important to me since riding in the rain and cold are not on my list of favorite things to do. For a quick check of what’s happening weather-wise and for short range predictions, this has become my “Go To” weather app for general weather information. There are other apps and websites I use for much more detailed or hour by hour in-depth information but in all fairness, that is not what this app is intended to do. What it will do is give you good accurate information about current weather conditions and short range general predictions for just about anywhere and present it in a user friendly and a very easy to understand interface. Like the title of this review says “Try it, you’ll like it!”
Best weather app!
by Jazzman80 on 2019/08/11 18:04
This is the first weather app I’ve ever purchased, and I absolutely love it. It gives you so much information, and the design interface is sleek and organized. The radar screen buffers very well with both past (2hrs) and future (6 hrs), with ability to pause and scroll manually. The customizable map with layers is great. I still give it 5 stars, however if I could change anything, I wish the hourly forecast was condensed. To view hourly, you have to do a lot of scrolling, and I would prefer to see 8-12 hours of forecast at one time without needing to scroll. I’ve seen other apps that use a line graph on hourly forecasts with info like highs, lows, % precipitation, etc. This is the only thing I would change, but I still love this app!
Excellent source of weather data
by Nip & Tuck on 2019/10/16 12:24
your maps and the details on weather facts. The maps are better than any other weather app map available. I love it as it is available. I also appreciate the daily summaries for a week. Able to look ahead as well as history. I use it daily. Thanks This is the best weather app of all I have used. It is easy to use and I can read it easily despite AMD. The map is easy to understand and estimate the arrival of weather. I love the hourly forecast. Thank you for all the wonderful data. Well I still think you are super with about all aspects of the weather station. I ditto all the above.! I still feel very positive about this app. Keep up Yuen’s details you provide in such a simple , useful, clear format.
Amazing app! Only one minor inconvenience.
by WMRK2 on 2019/07/11 16:39
I’ve been searching for a real replacement to my favorite app of all time, WU Storm. The TWC Storm app never did much for me and recently they are asking for payments on things that where free. Now Weather Mate is exactly what I wanted! I can see great data with ease, information from my own PWS and it is quick!! The UI looks classic, but in a way its great. A lot of information at a glance. Theres also many tools, like Air quality, Flight Planner, Weather history, and many more. The map also has a lot of great tools, reminds me of the original Storm app. I encourage everyone to try the free version, specially if you miss WU Storm. I’m pretty sure that, just like me, you’ll immediately will pay for this version. Now for my minor inconvenience: the app says that government alerts are not available for my locations because its only for US. But I’m on Puerto Rico and this is a US territory and we get NWS alerts like everyone else. So can I get this fixed? Hurricanes are about to start their never ending strike over my area and these alerts are crucial. I’ll contact the developer soon but just put this here in case they respond. Thanks in advance.
This one has it all!
by SquantoDog on 2018/06/23 18:58
I want an app that tells me everything at a glance. This app is it! I have bought all the top 20 weather apps and this one give the most comprehensive amount of weather-related data in one screen. I like it has a iwatch app too. I also wanted a radar that was robust as weather pro. Very happy this app has all of it. Dark weather is boring and provides little data. Radar pro is good, but little in the way of forcasting. Carrot weather is cool, but radar is weak. My weather pro is a close second, but I want to see all the data without having to navigate around the app. this app is like my storm/weather underground that has died off due to advertisements. This is a great replacement for the same app on all my apple devices.
Thank You!
by musiccity1 on 2019/10/08 23:56
I normally wait at least a few weeks before writing a review but not today! I downloaded this app last night and have explored it for a couple of hours. We live on an island in the Eastern Caribbean and having the ability to see potential trouble isn’t just something “nice” or interesting, it can be life changing. (We survived Irma’s rath directly overhead two years ago. Which was followed in close succession by Jose and Maria.) I was relying on a competitive App which has subsequently been deprecated for no apparent reason, losing tools I find here once again! For instance, the ability to mark and detail activity on the radar. I also VERY MUCH APPRECIATE that this is a single purchase investment. I have subscription fatigue. Finding this feature rich App goes to show that the best truly can surface to the top and if competition missteps,it is someone else’s opportunity to shine. My forecast for this App are many bright, sunny, days, ahead. UPDATE: After several months of daily use through (most) of a hurricane season, I couldn’t be happier! Great, feature rich, app! It is 5 star and I would pay for an Apple TV app were it offered. Thank you again!

Great Weather App

This app makes the weather wonderful. They continue to update this app to make it the best to use on a day to day basis.

by Nwnjflyer on 2019/10/22 01:19
I have been a pilot for over 35 years and this app is by far the best app for knowing the WX that you will encounter on your flight.
Weather app review
by ABraswell on 2019/10/21 02:17
Excellent and very detailed in weather forecasts.
Best, anyway. BTDT
by fjpoblam on 2019/10/20 23:05
Mi esposa agrees. (Happy wife, happy life.) Tried 20+ other weather apps, many of them several times. Always back to WeatherMate. No app (including weather apps) is perfect, because all apps are written by us poor imperfect human beans, and you may find an occasional failing in WeatherMate or in your friendly neighborhood weather station that WeatherMate elects to use. Get over it, as they say. But for the level of detail available, the quality of radar, the travel planner, and other things, you will hardly beat WeatherMate.

So helpful that I don’t need to open main app unless I want to check map. As for the map with radar and satellite it is so rich with layers and customization that you can set it just exactly for what’s important to you. And it bears repeating, this app uses the vast national network of personal weather stations to receive seconds old current data that’s truly hyper local. Along of course airport weather stations. I live in small town SE Alabama and have three personal weather stations entered all within 8 mile radius of home, one of which is just a mile distant.
Nice app with several useful features
by stephenrjr on 2019/10/19 00:55
While not perfect, I’m very happy with some of the features found in this app. The basics, like current conditions and multi-day forecast are easy to access. Radar and air quality are also implemented well. And other nice surprises, like Almanac, History, and Travel Planner are handy - need some UI improvements to make them as nice as other areas of the app.
Pretty awesome
by Marc in Postfalls on 2019/10/18 23:57
So far it’s pretty good but the icon badge, app and Apple Watch does always read the same even after updated. The app and Apple Watch does have lots of info happy about that this is a super app one of my favorite weather app
Love this app
by psysl8r on 2019/10/18 23:19
This is the absolute best weather app I have ever owned I would have paid a lot for this and truthfully did not expect much from this app for the price it knocked my socks off it has it all due to my work knowing the weather and storm directions is vital this smokes anything noaa has.

Greatest weather app

I have four other weather apps that I don't use anymore. This app has everything , hurricane , earthquake , tornado and much much more.

I bought the full version and using this app regularly. It’s fantastic definitely the best weather app I’ve ever downloaded. The radar is always my favorite feature incorporated into a weather app.. This one has an incredible animated radar, full screen. I love it, others should too Thanks to the team for a great app!
The Most Detailed Weather App For All iOS Devices!
by benrjohansen on 2019/10/17 15:36
This app is amazing for the level of weather information available to me. This app is also amazing for the level of customizing that information to my liking. Works great on all of my iOS devices including, iPhone, iPad, and my Apple Watch.

Excellent source of weather data
by Nip & Tuck on 2019/10/16 12:24
your maps and the details on weather facts. The maps are better than any other weather app map available. I love it as it is available. I also appreciate the daily summaries for a week. Able to look ahead as well as history. I use it daily. Thanks This is the best weather app of all I have used. It is easy to use and I can read it easily despite AMD. The map is easy to understand and estimate the arrival of weather. I love the hourly forecast. Thank you for all the wonderful data. Well I still think you are super with about all aspects of the weather station. I ditto all the above.! I still feel very positive about this app. Keep up Yuen’s details you provide in such a simple , useful, clear format.

Best, tried them all WORTH EVERY PENNY
by Slimnow on 2019/10/14 08:56
5 years and still loving it!!!!UPDATE THE BEST APP!!!! Update Still best there is!!!Frustrated by the weather Channel app, I downloaded six top rated weather apps. Each week I eliminated one app but by week three I could see this was going to be the stand out. After a total of nine weeks I paid for the ad free version. Hands-down the best as far as providing me with information that I need to be ready for my day. It is easy to read and I like that it gives me humidity and dew point for each day (a must know for a good hair day😊) Nov 2017 and STILL AWESOME
Highly Customizable Watch Complications
by Studderman on 2019/10/14 06:25
This is a great app with a lot of great customizable features for the watch. Please Read Below!! I love to use the Infograph Modular and the infograph face, and when apple removed the location display on said faces, I was P’d off, Im kind of a nerd, I love the faces with many complications on them that can display as much info as possible , so after apple removed the location, I set out to download a weather app with the location displayed on the infograph and the infograph modular, well this app has it, and the customizable features it has is endless, you can customize every aspect of the watch face complication to your liking and thats no exaggeration, not at all. Its a must have!!
Great
by myneighborsarerude on 2019/10/14 00:55

Ok to start I live in a place to where the weather can change quickly so you need a weather app that is fast and accurate I have tried other weather apps and none of them even come close to Weather Mate Pro it is crazy how accurate this app is whatever these guys that built the app are doing they have done it right the app is a necessity for me because I am a true weather geek it has all the information I want plus more wind speed humidity how much rain we are expecting on a given day just to name a few this app is Excellent so make sure you give Weather Mate Pro a try you will not regret it well worth the money for sure

by musiccity1 on 2019/10/08 23:56
I normally wait at least a few weeks before writing a review but not today! I downloaded this app last night and have explored it for a couple of hours. We live on an island in the Eastern Caribbean and having the ability to see potential trouble isn’t just something “nice” or interesting, it can be life changing. (We survived Irma’s rath directly overhead two years ago. Which was followed in close succession by Jose and Maria.) I was relying on a competitive App which has subsequently been deprecated for no apparent reason, losing tools I find here once again! For instance, the ability to mark and detail activity on the radar. I also VERY MUCH APPRECIATE that this is a single purchase investment. I have subscription fatigue. Finding this feature rich App goes to show that the best truly can surface to the top and if competition missteps,it is someone else’s opportunity to shine. My forecast for this App are many bright, sunny, days, ahead. UPDATE: After several months of daily use through (most) of a hurricane season, I couldn’t be happier! Great, feature rich, app! It is 5 star and I would pay for an Apple TV app were it offered. Thank you again!
Best customizable weather app
by DonPablo21 on 2019/10/07 11:34
Definitely the best weather app for people who know what they want and aren't afraid to spend some time customizing it. The radar includes layers that competing apps lack (fronts-earthquakes-100 mile rings), users can choose which details to show in which order in the main app and the Today widget, and there are lots of ways to customize Apple Watch complications (including both temperature and rainfall in a single Infograph corner or circle). I just wish there was a way to display a small radar view from the main screen (instead of forcing users to click the little button on top), and for the app to remember that the details sidebar was opened in Text Only or the daily details were closed in Advanced view when the app is reopened.

Weather Mate Pro
by Mitiemouse on 2019/10/03 18:01
The best weather app I have ever tried. Here in South Florida we take our weather very seriously. After only a few seconds of opening weather mate I knew what I needed to know all concise and laid out so your eyes flowed from each day. At a glance you see date, time alerts and forecasts for the next few days, and the app when unopened shows the temperature. There are icons for full page radar, and upcoming warnings, small craft advisories and the wind and pressure. I love this app!

Questionable
by carlybarly93 on 2019/10/02 15:51
Was happy with this app until today when it was showing not a storm in sight within a 100 mile radius - while it is thundering, lightening and pouring rain. Not very dependable - 9/15/19 - temperature says 68 - while EVERY other weather site says 79 or 80. Not very dependable and not what I PAID for. Think it was 9/25/19 my daughter was traveling through Springfield Il and it was rainy so hard she had to pull over because she couldn’t see for the rain. She called me and had me check radar and it was clear - no rain in Springfield and no clouds at all. This is the second time the radar failed miserably.

I used Storm for years but when it changed to Storm Radar it became useless to me. After searching many apps found WeatherMate. I have been so happy with it that I upgraded to the no commercials version. I like the ability to check out global weather by scrolling across their weather map. It is far superior to the previously mentioned apps. The latest update 7.2 is fantastic. Keep up the good work.
Not the best by a long shot
by Flyboy247us on 2019/09/29 22:55
The choice of layers is interesting but the animation feature does nothing to predict frontal movement nor the winds..these remain fixed.. the only animation is predicted radar Hardly the best app on the market Save your $5

Extremely accurate
by Kvirus11 on 2019/09/27 20:16
Best app for future forecasting and future planning. Generally always within 1-2 degrees and precipitation is almost perfect. Only 4 stars as sometimes I have to manually change stations and that is a huge pain to do. If it was a simple one touch change it would be 5 stars. Definitely the best weather app for my Apple devices.

by Zenith.2011 on 2019/09/26 17:24
I'm probably less technical than 90% of the users of this app, as I just really enjoy the differing weather stations and additional info (windspeed, rain probably, humidity, etc.) and the amazing "feels like" Idk quite why but Weathermate seems to be more accurate than the stock app, which is a huge plus for me.

Best weather app!
by aintbe on 2019/09/15 12:38
Got a new iPad and tried another weather app, even payed for it. Waste of money! Weather Mate is free and has the best appearance, information, forecast (of course they get it wrong sometimes as does everyone, weather is fickle). Most important the radar is clear and specific making it easy to plan (do I have time to mow the lawn before it rains or do I run out and close the car windows now). There is a radar lag of up to 15 minutes which is clearly noted, but with familiarity it's workable. Map overlays provide wide variety of information. Ability to list multiple locations so I can keep up with the weather where my friends live all over the country (or the world for that matter) is great! Reporting locations are nearby so the temperature is accurate for preparing for the morning dog walk. Lots of data! I got Weather Mate when Storm went away and everything but the radar lag is as good or better. Keep up the good work!
Weather Mate is OUTSTANDING!
by Sherrie and Bill on 2019/09/15 12:10
I don’t say that lightly. I have never written a review for an app until now. I am a weather geek. I love anything weather related. Anemometers, weather vanes, radar on my iPad, etc. And I like lots of data. Weather Mate has all of that and more. I have never seen SO much data and interactive tools. The free version of the app is great but the Pro version, for a one-time low fee, is even better. I have been involved with weather agencies through SKYWARN, CoCoRaHS, and other ways. I think this app is a MUST if you’re a weather geek like me. And NO, I don’t work for Weather Mate. Thank you to the creators of this app!!!
Weather info always out of date
by Jaydekay on 2019/09/14 16:10
I had high hopes for this on the Apple Watch. However the complication data is always out of date which makes it useless. There is a setting to increase the frequency for updating the complication, but still, every single time I look at the complication it is out of date. I then have to open the app on the watch, and refresh the data. This is on the newest Apple Watch with a data plan. Very disappointing.
Weather Mate and the Pro version are great apps
by IrishTX47 on 2019/09/13 22:04
I too was so disappointed when TWC bought the Storm app, took it off the shelf, and replaced it with Storm Radar. The free version does not have half the features of Storm, and the pay version is way too expensive. So I've searched for and tried numerous other weather apps since then, and finally found Weather Mate and Weather Mate Pro. The free version is almost as good as the original Storm and much, much better than free Storm Radar. And the Pro version is even better than the original Storm, at a decent price. So far I'm very satisfied with it. Y'all have done a very good job with both the interface and the functionality.... Good designers!
Best Alternative to Storm I Found
by mechvalve on 2019/09/13 14:24
Weather Mate Pro is great. Fills void left by Storm. Great presentation on radar/map screen and detail pages. The only thing I like to see added is for the "fronts" to animate in the radar/map screen. Keep up the great work!!
Easy and Smart
by Seagas9000 on 2019/09/12 20:28
My favorite weather app was My-Cast but they shut down. I used that app well over 10 years I searched hard for an equal replacement and found this one. It is very good and the customer support will answer your questions fast. There is one feature I requested that they should add. Lightning alerts ... if there is lightning within 25 miles a thunder sound to your phone would be great. My-Cast had that and that was an awesome feature. So, I am hoping they add this ... if they do I will stay with them for good. I am still very happy wirh this app. It has evolved to be even better now. Still waiting for the thunder sound if there is lightning nearby. I highly recommend Weather Mate ! My Update 6/4/2019. I am still with Weather Mate. Better than ever ! no thunder sound lightning alert yet ... but hopeful they are considering. John
I use this frequently
by Jcb157 on 2019/09/12 00:48
I chose this originally because it is one of the few weather mapping apps I’ve run across with a “fronts” layer. In my area, the location of high and low pressure centers and the nature of the fronts between them are very helpful in understanding what weather changes I can expect. The wind animation feature, something I haven’t seen before, is very well conceived and executed! It shows me (motorcyclist, sailor, and drone pilot) at a brief glance how surface winds are flowing and how that might change in time. Combined w radar and fronts layers, I can tell a lot about what to expect in my day. When I got the app originally, the free version ads delayed the opening of the map feature, but once I paid to remove them, the app has performed well. I’ve recently begun using the (new?) option to show the map first upon opening the app, which has been very convenient. Overall, this app is working extremely well for what I need to know about the weather.
Near perfect

Best Apple Watch App
by Midlyfn on 2019/09/08 14:25
I recently bought and installed an Ambient Weather Station on my roof. With the weather station on my roof, I can have instant access to temperature, wind direction and speed, humidity, relative pressure and rainfall. The apps for my iPhone are very good but this Weather Mate app is outrageous. There are 3 screens that give all the parameters from my station and it constructs detailed forecasts that I can lookup on my wrist. You can even zero in on the weather at specific hours. I first downloaded the free version and within 5 minutes I bought the pro version because I realized this is the promised land of Apple Watch Apps. All you app developers out there, check this app to see how our expensive watches can perform to the max. Excellent job Weather Mate... You have developed an app that is leaps ahead of anything I've seen made for the Apple Watch.
Best Features
by ranch_wife on 2019/09/08 13:35
Nice app!! I have several weather apps and this is the only one that easily lets me see fronts on the map. In general, way more detail at your fingertips with this app. Appreciate the developers’ commitment to customer service and response to suggestions. Keep up the great work.
Head and shoulders above the rest weather app
by TheBullridingMonkey on 2019/09/08 01:56
After looking for months for a system to replace another once reliable weather app, Weather Mate has everything I could need and then some. Even the widget is intuitive, fully customizable, and easy to read. The app itself blows anything close out of the water. If weather is something you follow for agriculture, transportation or just as someone who has a keen interest in accurate weather, you can’t go wrong.
The only app with historic weather data
by Hoosier1959 on 2019/09/07 15:21
I am a gardener (and a weather nerd), and I absolutely need to know the long-term average high and low temperature and the long-term record high and low temperature for my location each day. It's the first thing I check each morning. For years I used Intellicast, because it had a very simple graphic each day with current temp and all the other (average and record) temperature data on it. Simple and beautiful. Then Intellicast was replaced by Storm with no historic weather data. I searched and searched for a new weather app with historic weather data and found none. I finally settled on this app because it has a nice clean look, lets me choose my weather data (dewpoint, moon rise, etc) and the radar function includes future storm tracks instead of where the storm has already been. I did not find the historic weather info until I'd had this app for about a year. I'm not sure if it came with an update or if it's because it's hard to find. The historic info is under an icon called "almanac" that is only visible when you expand the top menu with the three dots in the upper right corner. Who knew? I think the app developers would be wise to highlight the fact that they have historic weather data, because no other weather app does, and many gardeners need this information. Thanks for a great app.

Excellent, full-featured weather app
by RavelanOne on 2019/09/06 23:37
Outstanding app! I have used the pro versions of at least six or seven weather apps, and this one is by far the best. I rely on it every day. The forecast summaries are pretty good, but I always open up the map to see what’s coming on the radar, etc. Tons of features, very customizable, so you can have as spare or as detailed a screen as you choose, and to top it off, the app is beautiful to look at. In months and months of using it, I haven’t noticed any major bugs, outages, or failures. Deserves 10 stars, but we’re limited to 5. :)

Best Weather App Ever
by Pokerplayer-001 on 2019/09/04 14:55
I am a Weather fanatic. I own a weather station. I watch the weather every day. This app is absolutely the best weather app I have ever used. If you are using any other mobile weather app you need to delete it an install this one. I rarely if ever post reviews good or bad, but the quality of this app deserves my time to comment on it.
Slow To Update & Innovate
by Ken R on 2019/09/04 05:40
While there are a few similarities to my favorite weather app, Storm, Weather Mate has recurring content malfunction issues (i.e. radar shows a clean sky, but it’s pouring rain outside), a poorly written wind display engine (has to constantly refresh the entire screen each time the view has been moved or zoomed), no jet stream winds view, a legends screen that covers up the entire weather view when viewing, and using wind lines (as opposed to wind arrows) causes a crash every time you attempt to use them. In addition, I’ve been asking for an animated fronts view for over a year. Many of these issues are caused by a lack of updates and innovation.
Great weather app
by Hwr2 on 2019/09/04 01:24
Easy to use and good forecasts. Great interface.
Been a great help tracking Hurricane Dorian
by VIFury on 2019/09/04 01:22
Here in FL all the up to date notifications and radar customization to show me what info I needed when I needed it. Worth the money, please continue to support this app. May help save many lives!
BEST weather app for iphone and watch!
by fwanders on 2018/11/19 18:43
Weather mate pro has everything i wanted and more for following all the weather. and with the new watch complication, you get all the amazing weather details on your watch. plus the same alerts/ warnings/ etc you get on your phone. the amount of customization you can choose is amazing. for example, to start, choose the weather station you prefer from the places you've picked. then customize the different complications on your watch. i give it 5 stars! since, nothing is perfect, here's what i'd like to see changed. change the big part in the top box, it gives me the feeling of an older digital alarm clock. i always wished that the time display and blue bulls eye/wind direction gauge was done differently. and definitely not so big, it's out of sync with the rest of the more modern and somehow friendlier looking graphics. i like the big weather graphic in the top box though (sun behind the clouds, sun, etc...). and lastly, i love all the weather details now available on my watch. but in the future, being able to view all the details for more than one location (current or home), on the watch, would be great. so, home/current location plus other picks (los angeles, washington d.c., etc.) available to view on the watch. even so, this weather app still stomps all the others. for loads of clear, useful, detailed, timely and customizable weather data (in the usa and beyond), this is the weather app to have.
Good Information
by Why I purchased this app on 2018/05/08 13:36
This weather app gives great detailed information concerning weather in my area and state. It is very customizable in selecting how I want to be informed. A good map section I can customize to give up to date weather and even direction of storm systems and information when I tap on the small directional grid and gives air quality reports. In the Advanced section of Settings, it takes a little time to get to know the features and there is even a section that explains weather contitions. You really have to explore this app to see how it can inform you on weather conditions. Gives a look ahead by hour, day or week and an active wind guage to show the direction and speed, has a red bar for server alerts, a voice option to give conditions. There is even a Travel Planner showing conditions when you are scheduled to take a flight. It will select the closest station to give a more accurate prediction or you can select a station in your area. I reccommend the Pro just to support such apps as this one that really gives the kind of information needed to be well informed. Well designed and layed out to tell you what you need and want to know. There is even an option for earthquakes. If any con I have to give it, the small print because of the detailed layout, but it is still very legable. I must admit I have the iphone se (like it very much). Yet, this is a great app to have on your iphone that gives such detailed information!!
Absolutely essential for both quick & detailed weather info
by Mc7859 on 2019/07/17 21:15
I’ve gotten 90% of the weather apps available. This is one of the 3 “must-have” weather apps, in my opinion, along with Carrot & RadarScope. This app comes closest to replacing the radar page of the unfortunately killed Storm app (how can you take one of the best weather apps out there, and intentionally deprecate it completely???? - but I digress...), especially with the 7/19 enhancements to the storm cell info. It’s the ONLY app that displays user-selectable data from nearby Personal Weather Stations. I’m REALLY happy to see the new update that allows display of graphs for any PWS & date. The customizing options alone set this apart from any other app out there, except perhaps Carrot. The latest options improving Apple Watch complications are also awesome. Weather Mate Pro & Carrot each do their job very differently, and both do it extremely well, but they vary significantly in their approach, so they’re both essential in my book. They both get a place on my #1 home screen on both my iPad & iPhone, so that should tell you something. Just get it. What else would I like to see? The ability to quickly compare more weather forecast sources and more PWS data combinations in the map layer. My “wish” list for just about any other app I have is 10-15 items long, for reference. Weather Mate Pro is simply outstanding, period.
The only app with historic weather data
by Hoosier1959 on 2019/09/07 15:21
I am a gardener (and a weather nerd), and I absolutely need to know the long-term average high and low temperature and the long-term record high and low temperature for my location each day. It's the first thing I check each morning. For years I used Intellicast, because it had a very simple graphic each day with current temp and all the other (average and record) temperature data on it. Simple and beautiful. Then Intellicast was replaced by Storm with no historic weather data. I searched and searched for a new weather app with historic weather data and found none. I finally settled on this app because it has a nice clean look, lets me choose my weather data (dewpoint, moon rise, etc) and the radar function includes future storm tracks instead of where the storm has already been. I did not find the historic weather info until I'd had this app for about a year. I'm not sure if it came with an update or if it's because it's hard to find. The historic info is under an icon called "almanac" that is only visible when you expand the top menu with the three dots in the upper right corner. Who knew? I think the app developers would be wise to highlight the fact that they have historic weather data, because no other weather app does, and many gardeners need this information. Thanks for a great app.
The only viable alternative to Storm on iOS
by 826059 on 2018/10/29 15:59
For some reason, only this app and what used to be Storm (but is now whatever the weather channel monstrosity app is called) will show you real time weather fronts. If you know how to look at a weather map, the position and speed of an incoming warm or cold front can tell you a lot about what the weather will be like for the day. You can supplement that info with current radar, temps, the NWS’ forecast discussion, wind speed, dew point, pressure, etc. This one has all of that, (which means everything that Storm had), except with a much more outdated GUI. Like as if we were still on iOS 5. But I’ll HAPPILY take a bad looking weather app with tons of great info over a garbage weather app (i.e. the app formerly known as Storm) without any real info. It’s ironic, because those people basically turned Storm into an app that somehow looks worse than this app, which is saying a lot since this app looks like its stuck in 2011. Like everyone in the reviews is saying: This is the only weather app that’s a suitable replacement for the old Storm app. Developers of this app will get 5 stars from me, regardless, if for no other reason than its the only app which shows positions of cold fronts relative your location. Update the GUI and I’ll give you that sixth star! ;)
Best Weather App Out There!!!!
by fly cfi on 2019/06/12 11:41
Best weather app out there! The free version is great. The paid version is AWESOME!!!! I have several weather apps on my phone for backup purposes. This one (paid version) surpasses them all. This app has yet to disappoint me, and believe me, it takes a lot to impress me for I have extremely high standards and expectations. Just a little update to my review. As of April 2019 I have now had this app for at least 3+ years and I am about to say something that is unprecedented coming from me. After all these years I still rank this app with 5 big ones for this app has yet to disappoint me in anyway. And the one time I did have to contact customer service with a radio issue they got back to me IMMEDIATELY!!! Not only did they get back to me immediately, but the issue was resolved in a reasonable amount of time. Unlike another app out there that prefixes all their stuff with NOAA, and after contacting this competitor several times. I am still waiting on a simple acknowledgement from them for at least two years now. So, if you are looking for a high quality weather app that you can DEPEND on this is the one you will want to go with. Oh yeah, one more thing not only is there customer service fast, but they are super friendly as well!!!
Storm is gone, thankfully these guys exist!
by Crazykidbig58 on 2018/10/21 22:41
EDIT! This app is still the best app out there. I actually like this app more than the original Storm app which is hard to believe. Also, I emailed the developer to ask for some enhancements and they replied within a day and said that they were already on the list to add to the app! Truly a great find when it comes to weather apps. Storm was my go to app for weather. It had a feature set that was perfect for just about anyone. Weather channel bought them and they essentially shelved the app. I must have downloaded 10 other apps trying to find something to replace Storm, but nothing came close. Until now... Weather Mate Pro is not just as good as Storm, it’s actually better. The available layers and feature set is far superior to what Storm had. I am so happy to have found this app! The only thing missing is the distance rings around your location. I think Storm used it for lightning tracking, but it was very handy to see the distance rings of 25, 50, 75, and 100 miles right on the radar. You could look at the movement of an incoming storm and quickly see the speed and estimate the actual timing it would be arriving. Hopefully they will add it in the future. Anyways, great app that I highly recommend!
Pretty close to perfect...
by Tamanzi on 2018/08/27 15:53
Update: Finally formatted to fit iPhone X screen! Thank you! Still waiting on UI update and map zoom start feature a year after this original review was written, but once again customer support is the BEST in the App Store – or anywhere else for that matter... The reintroduction of the WeatherRadio is fabulous. AND, the lightning, storm tracking and other layer data on the map is extensive and pretty accurate as far as I can tell. Although the UI could perhaps use a little modern spit and polish, this app has something even better going for it than the best weather forecasting -- it's got responsive customer support. The rest should take a lesson. All that aside -- I have found the forecasting very accurate and the oodles of customizable data very welcome. I live in Southwest Florida where weather can change on a dime, so the more data the better. The only complaint I had about their super quick-loading radar was that the initial view was so zoomed out it takes a lot of pinching to zoom in to my city. But they responded immediately to let me know they are working on providing a custom zoom setting. Still waiting on that, but a tiny inconvenience. Awesome. So five stars even if it's not yet perfect.
Weather Mate Pro is the PWS app everyone should have..
by CJ Streett on 2019/03/12 17:08
Weather Mate Pro is a perfect companion for PWS (Personal Weather Station) owners or observers. After a couple of months of running WMP, I can, for at least my setup, view my home PWS and have Official NWS observations along with the community of PWS observers all in one excellent app with accurate historical data. Access to Official NWS statements without having to use other apps to me a great bonus. I have eliminated several paid and free apps. The radar has storm tracks that’s similar to the popular Storm/WU. Storm notifications are so far quick and accurate. This app literally takes the good out of several now defunct apps or ones that have changed over time. The features seem endless. I have been looking for a PWS app with this much reference and customization for years. This app Pro version is well worth the $5 fee. This weather app is perfect for casual weather and for those wanting to view their PWS systems in the weather community. I eliminated several paid and free apps because of this Weather Mate Pro. I hope you have such good fortune as well. Thank you to the developers of this app!
Finally, a worthy replacement for Storm
by abandonedwest on 2018/06/09 01:19
As others have noted, Storm used to be *the* app for weather nerds, balancing radar views with forecast data and practical usability. But then The Weather Channel got its hands on it and all was lost. I must’ve tried two dozen weather apps over the last few months looking for an alternative, and Weather Mate is absolutely the best choice. Top-notch data presented completely and intelligently with a host of options for reordering or culling how it’s displayed. No “cutesy” reinventions that dumb down forecast information to barely useful tidbits or a single obtuse icon like so many apps do. I also like that it’s one of the few apps that displays the full NWS forecast text (if you want it). Finally, it’s also one of the cheapest, with no subscription required. I like that. My one criticism would be (and why I give it four stars instead of five) there are elements of the user interface that look like they’re straight out of iOS 6. Hard-coded old style buttons and widgets that really should be modernized. It gives the app the appearance of abandonware. But I’m willing to forgive this oversight because everything else about it is so good. Kudos to the developers For keeping the data plentiful and at the forefront of the app’s purpose.
I’d say it’s worth the money 👍🏼
by JodiWoo on 2019/03/15 13:14
It’s not perfect, but it’s an all-around good app. It’s certainly the best-looking weather app I’ve seen, and aesthetics are important to me. The graphics and customization options are great — even my husband commented on how nice it looked when he saw me use it for the first time. I love (the idea of) the temperature app badge and the fact that I can customize the app and widget to show (or not show!) any piece of weather information I want. The biggest issue I have, and the reason for 4 stars instead of 5, is that even though I have all the permissions in place and the background refresh setting as it should be, it doesn’t always update itself... which means the app badge and the widget are sometimes wrong until I actually open the app and manually refresh it. It’s easy to do, but it defeats the purpose if those 2 extra features. And again, it’s only on occasion and not all the time, but they’re incorrect often enough that I don’t really trust either of them to be accurate... making them pretty useless in a state like Ohio, where yesterday it got up to 73° and today it’ll get down to 30°. If it doesn’t update hourly, it’s probably going to be very wrong!
Great replacement for Storm!
by Ned Buntline on 2018/06/05 16:20
<Edit 6/5/18> REALLY happy with this app and the responsiveness of the WeatherMate staff. Dropped a couple of suggestions to customer service a week ago and today, those features are in! I even received an email from Wendy at WeatherMate notifying me of the changes. What a great, responsive company! NICE JOB! Compare this to the fiasco going on with Storm Radar. DylogicApps, you’ve got a customer for life. <End Edit> For those of you like me who feel The Weather Channel screwed you by dumping a great product called Storm, replacing it with an inferior radar widget, here’s your new weather app! It pretty much does everything Storm did except the wind and jet stream animations. The layout is pretty good, and the radar map works great. You get the front lines and pressure indicators. It also allows you to view personal weather stations. These two items alone would sell me, especially after the new Storm Radar app dumped them. Includes detailed forecasts, and other cool items like weather radio. This is an app for weather buffs, and a great pickup for those looking for their Storm replacement. Nice job!
Kudos to both the app and the customer service
by derekbrumley on 2018/01/29 07:13
I love the app and the way it presents a wealth of data in a way that is easy to configure and take in. I'm particularly impressed with the plethora of options for the Apple Watch and its Complications. I did, however, have a problem with the Watch version and its apparent unwillingness to accept my preference for metric display units as selected in the iPhone version. I contacted customer service and received a reply, within a day, that told me concisely how to fix the problem. In case other users may be experiencing a similar issue, I present herewith the advice given: "Please open the Weather Mate app on both your iPhone & Apple Watch simultaneously. Go to iPhone app settings, change the Temperature setting to Fahrenheit & then back to Celsius. This should fix the problem on Watch app." It worked like a charm! I then repeated the procedure with the other settings in turn and watched as they all fell into line. This now my favorite weather app for iOS/WatchOS.
My new go-to weather app!
by Gaffer937 on 2018/03/03 17:34
Just found my new go-to weather app. Was a long time user of the Weather Underground and subsequent Storm apps, but recent changes in the Storm business model has prompted me to go looking for a new app; and, I think I have found it. The amount of information available rivals that of Storm. Weather Mate has a comprehension amount of information available that can be customized to one's particular interests/needs. As a weather geek, I especially appreciate the availability of weather fronts, as well as the centers of circulation (highs and lows). Most weather apps only show radar information on their maps. In my mind, knowing what the fronts look like helps me to not only understand what is driving the local weather that appears on the radar; but, to interpreted what the future weather will be. Only annoyance I have found so far is with the main screen. The prominent display and location of the clock/day/date is distracting and not warranted. I would rather see the high/low temperature data swapped with the clock data. I am using the app for weather information, not as my watch. Keep up the good work.
Finally I’ve Replaced wunderground
by Dangah Zonnnneeeee on 2019/08/31 10:31
This app has finally been a complete replacement for weatherunderground and storm. When the weatherchannel bought wunderground years ago nothing really seemed different until all of a sudden they ruined the storm and wunderground apps; forced subscription charges took features away from the apps and pushed the weather channel’s own app on you(it’s terrible they just want you to watch their tv channel). Anyway weathermate does everything both storm and wunderground did only better and more in depth! I will happily pay a subscription for this app; it even goes in depth enough to offer you the amplitude of each individual lightning strike when you click on a strike...... Now we can only hope that the creators stay true to their passion of weather and do not sell out to a certain channel that loves ads and viewership but seems to hate the weather. Keep about your wits, Know yourself and who you came in with.
I use this frequently
by Jcb157 on 2019/09/12 00:48
I chose this originally because it is one of the few weather mapping apps I’ve run across with a “fronts” layer. In my area, the location of high and low pressure centers and the nature of the fronts between them are very helpful in understanding what weather changes I can expect. The wind animation feature, something I haven’t seen before, is very well conceived and executed! It shows me (motorcyclist, sailor, and drone pilot) at a brief glance how surface winds are flowing and how that might change in time. Combined w radar and fronts layers, I can tell a lot about what to expect in my day. When I got the app originally, the free version ads delayed the opening of the map feature, but once I paid to remove them, the app has performed well. I’ve recently begun using the (new?) option to show the map first upon opening the app, which has been very convenient. Overall, this app is working extremely well for what I need to know about the weather.
Best weather app!
by aintbe on 2019/09/15 12:38
Got a new iPad and tried another weather app, even payed for it. Waste of money! Weather Mate is free and has the best appearance, information, forecast (of course they get it wrong sometimes as does everyone, weather is fickle). Most important the radar is clear and specific making it easy to plan (do I have time to mow the lawn before it rains or do I run out and close the car windows now). There is a radar lag of up to 15 minutes which is clearly noted, but with familiarity it's workable. Map overlays provide wide variety of information. Ability to list multiple locations so I can keep up with the weather where my friends live all over the country (or the world for that matter) is great! Reporting locations are nearby so the temperature is accurate for preparing for the morning dog walk. Lots of data! I got Weather Mate when Storm went away and everything but the radar lag is as good or better. Keep up the good work!
Still the only weather app I use
by Eriptron on 2019/06/05 16:17
Oh, I almost forgot. WMP has all the historical charts you could want, Update: Two things I have a habit of collecting, calculator apps and weather apps. Don’t ask me why. Once I found Weather Mate Pro, I stopped looking for them (there hasn’t been a better weather app...don’t think there will be as Weather Mate Pro gives you it all and presented very logically)! You can track your local weather (where you live, your home, not just you city or town. I’m an active person out of doors and I don’t own a car, so I walk a lot and I jog. With WMP I can walk between the rain drops. My neighbors frequently comment about how lucky I am that I missed the rain. I will use WMP’s weather forecasts and map to judge when to leave and, when to get inside or return home by. Rarely have I been rained on. I’m better than the Professional forecasters but I have an unfair advantage. I have my own Professional, WMP, and Professionals have to generalize for a large area with their local forecasts. Support is still ‘excellent’. They submitted a glitch report to their developers for something minor I found. Keep up the great work! —- Still my go-to weather app. After seeing weather apps come and go, I’ve used this app for years now. It provides more information in an easy to use format than any weather app I’ve used. Support is fast, good, professional and friendly. I highly recommend this app!
Awesome App, awesome developers
by Millibar on 2018/08/27 02:01
This is a terrific app that is very flexible and customizable. I highly recommend it. I’ve been using it several years now and it has consistently given me the detailed timely information I need. While it can present you with tons of data, it is also great for more casual users. Clean solid and intuitive interface and lots of thoughtful well executed features. The developers are also really pleasant and responsive. I reached out to them a while ago because of a glitch with the radar overlay layers. They got back to me right away and had already been working on the fix. They gave me an easy work around to use until they completed their fix. Also had to reach out to them about a setting I was having trouble with, (totally user error) and they were super pleasant and guided me to the setting. You’ll be pleased if you get the app and it’ll probably be on your home page in no time!
Was once a weather app I thought reliable
by Tyson Blake on 2019/05/22 00:06
Over the last month the quality of information has been declining with this app. Predictions changing by the hour and many times not even correct. As I sit here with Severe Thunderstorm Warnings and Tornado Warnings around me in SeMO, this weather app decides to become the most unreliable thing ever. This storm system has been talked about all day and every time I checked the radar in the app it never once displayed a proper "Watch" or "Warning" issued by the NWS as the system has moved across MO all day. The only thing the radar has shown is "Watch" and "Warnings" issued from the previous day. I have uninstalled and reinstalled the app 3 times, on my iPhone 7+ and iPad Mini 2 (both up to date iOS and app version), to find no fix. I have had to find a different app that is keeping properly displayed NWS alerts and an up to date radar displayed, because if the power goes out, my iPhone and iPad are all I have to rely on. Not sure how much I spent on this, but I'm pretty confident it was money wasted. At least it wasn't the worst app I've wasted money on. I also have pictures of the radar if the developer would like them.
A more than worthy replacement for Storm
by pa.williams on 2019/08/03 12:37
When Storm was put on the shelf, I looked at several apps as a replacement. None reached Storm’s level of detail except Weather Mate, which actually surpassed Storm with its historical almanac and travel features. Hourly and daily forecasts are superb in the breadth and depth of detail. Including things like dew point give us weather junkies data that we can use to formulate in our own minds what the weather will be. Stored complete forecasts for 10 locations and the ease of moving from one to another is a great feature. Well worth the cost. It’s the first app I open when I wake in the morning. To the developer: please change the clock. It’s too big. Put the time under the date. Use this valuable screen real estate to display a thumbnail of the radar for that location. If that’s not possible, use the space to display the data in a larger size. It’s a weather app, not a timepiece.
Most Complete Weather App
by Roy L. Oak on 2018/06/22 04:01
As a fruit grower and IPM Specialist, I depend on a complete and accurate weather app to make critical pest management decisions. I used WU Storm which gave me everything I needed including animated Surface Air and Jet Stream movements. And we all know what happened to Storm. The Weather Channel decided to can an excellent app for their very inferior Storm Radar. After weeks of searching, I found WeatherMate. The only thing it was missing was storm tracks and animated Surface Air/Jet Stream and they have since added the storm tracks with severity and hail info. This is critical to fruit growing. As far as accuracy, I get the most accurate data available for my location.... From my own weather station in the orchard. And can check three other stations within a 5 mile radius to make sure my calibrations are consistent. This is the best app going right now.......and will be the absolute best out there once Air Stream animations are added!
The best weather app I’ve found so far
by i dunno.....lol on 2018/08/18 12:12
The best weather app I’ve found so far. I was using the Storm app until it recently got run into the ground by a certain weather company. This app is very customizable, giving you the option to select weather parameters (temp, heat index, wind chill, rain amount, pressure, cloud cover and a whole lot more) for current conditions, hourly forecast and even the Notification Center widget. I also like the fact that you can choose weather stations at airports. The weather history and travel planner is a cool idea too, although I wish you could pick/search locations for these instead of having to use a weather station (as it is now I have to add a new location to get that location’s weather history or use the travel planner for that location). You can also change the name of your locations. I would highly recommend this app as anyone’s go to weather app.
Exactly what I wanted.
by @prilsJust2Cute on 2018/12/21 04:05
I have spent so much money on related apps. Living in FL the weather can change by the hour. I purchased this on a perfectly sunny day after looking across the water towards my home inland and noticing the dark skies. I know that doesn’t necessarily mean it’s storming where I live EXACTLY so I started looking for a NEW RELIABLE APP. I decided to go ahead and purchase the pro version. What sold me was the fact it used the actual NOAA RADAR and the radar I could scroll minute by minute using my finger instead of having to use a “pause/play” feature. I literally can narrow it down to the minute it’s going to start raining or any crazy weather is possible! So far I’ve tracked winds for fishing and even Hurricane Michael and the wind speed! It’s been amazing! I have deleted all other weather apps. My only complaint is I don’t have the loud default alerts for serious weather. Once I activated this app it pretty much cancelled all other default weather notifications for my iPhone.
Near perfect app
by GWD4 on 2019/07/23 04:56
This weather app is really nice. It delivers forecast data in an easy to read style. The models it uses seem to agree frequently with a weather underground, which is good. However, there is a bit more data presented. Where the app shines is the map section. This app gives the option to see position of highs, lows, fronts and the like. The only thing missing is a dry line. All in all, it’s a great weather app. UPDATE: I’ve used app several months, and found no problems. It has replaced Storm as my preferred app. Second Update: still satisfied. I really like to be able to see the winds at various levels. Only change I’d make is showing highs and lows more prominently on map, showing the dry line. If they want 6 stars, add things like water vapor imagery and the like. It would also be great if the fronts, etc moved with the radar. Actually, no matter how much they add, I’d ask for more!
This has become my go to weather app
by C Farber on 2018/10/21 14:14
I’m kind of a weather app nerd.. I have just over a dozen. I used to call WU (weather underground) my favorite, but it got buggy and less reliable. So I switched to this one and have yet to be disappointed. It has all the weather info you could possibly want, it correctly locates me every time, it has a watch complication (sometimes the temp updating lags, but I think they are all like that). It has a decent radar, I like the recent addition of the radius rings to help see how far away storms are. The only thing I think is lacking is if you use carrot or dark sky, they give you a better idea for when rain will start/stop and have some nice graphs. Also sometimes I just want to see the current radar picture, but it has to load the last several hours to animate which takes some time.. But an app can never be perfect!
Behavior with Apple Watch=YUCK!
by debsee on 2019/04/26 17:09
I love everything about this app on my iPhone and iPad. However, the way notifications work on my watch is EXTREMELY FRUSTRATING. It took me the better part of a week to find out what the random audible notification I kept getting on my watch with no visible indication what the sound was for. Honestly I don’t know how I determined it was this app, but it is. (When I take it off of one of my complications it goes away-add & the notification come back) I don’t want random audio notifications, and there is not way to turn the audible off. I’ve turned it off on my phone but there’s not option on the watch to disable sound notifications. Everything else this app does on my watch is exactly what I want a weather app to do. It’s info and data rich and in my area it can be extremely important to have the extra info when the weather changes often and rapidly at times. **NOTE: This notification problem was not an issue until the most recent app update.
Changes for the better

I purchased this app to replace WU Storm that just went by the wayside. After my purchase, the app crashed, radar didn’t work, etc. I notified the developers and deleted the app. I was informed that changes were being made, and to my surprise, all of the issues were corrected. The Storm app was the best weather app I’ve ever used, and this is the closest thing to it. This app would actually be better than the Storm app but for two things: 1. Some sort of radar view on the home screen or the ability to set the radar view as the default. 2. The ability to “quick pick” map layers in a mini toolbar on the map screen like storm track, watches/warnings, etc. I live in Tornado Alley and having the ability to quickly view different views on the radar is very beneficial. But those two things are just “wish list” items.
Excellent Weather App
by DSims08 on 2019/04/26 08:44
Like many, I have been bemoaning the loss of the excellent Storm weather app. Having tried at least ten other weather apps trying to find a good replacement, I had about given up. I finally tried Weather Mate and am pleased to say that it is an excellent app, and comes the closest to being as good as Storm. Weather Mate Pro gives you the basics at a quick glance, but also provides more detailed information for those needing it, as well as for weather enthusiasts. Bottom line: If you have been looking for a Storm replacement, or just a good, all around weather app, you can't go wrong with Weather Mate. I am quite pleased with the app as is, but would eventually like to see more stations added to the NOAA radio, more alert notification selections, and the ability to pick multiple alert overlays rather than just one or all.
Was hoping that Weather Mate would fix some of its issues. AND THEY DID!
by flyfishindude on 2019/06/06 14:23
After an exhausting search over a year ago to replace Storm, I decided to go with Weather Mate. There were Holes in its features. But those seem to have now been fixed! Noticeably for me was the lack of a jet/wind stream indicator. Once that was added, it somehow conflicted with the satellite imagery and it took several months to resolve that. Now both operate together on this platform well. My most recently discovered feature that I will be using frequently is the smokecover indicator located within the active fire feature. For most of us in the Western US, this may prove to be a very valuable tool during the Summer months. I don’t think any app is perfect, and would give WM a 4.5 if offered. But given it’s not, this is as close to perfect as any weather app I’ve found! 5 stars.
Best Apple Watch App
by Midlyfn on 2019/09/08 14:25
I recently bought and installed an Ambient Weather Station on my roof. With the weather station on my roof, I can have instant access to temperature, wind direction and speed, humidity, relative pressure and rainfall. The apps for my iPhone are very good but this Weather Mate app is outrageous. There are 3 screens that give all the parameters from my station and it constructs detailed forecasts that I can lookup on my wrist. You can even zero in on the weather at specific hours. I first downloaded the free version and within 5 minutes I bought the pro version because I realized this is the promised land of Apple Watch Apps. All you app developers out there, check this app to see how our expensive watches can perform to the max. Excellent job Weather Mate... You have developed an app that is leaps ahead of anything I've seen made for the Apple Watch.
A Weather App that actually Works!
by pdfromwv on 2019/07/17 19:39
Since the Weather Channel has ruined apps that used to work, this is my go to wx app. The fronts are actually displayed correctly! I use it every day. Highly recommend! Update: Still my favorite. Does everything that I need it to do. Update #2: latest update changed how thunderstorm cells are displayed. The icons are bigger but cover the raw radar information so much that I had to turn storm tracks off. Also, tapping on a thunder storm cell displays information about the cell, but too much! There needs to be an option to toggle off the laundry list of generally useless details. Storm tops (the most useful information about a thunderstorm’s severity) are displayed now in meters versus feet. Aviation users in the US still use feet and that would be preferred or make it a toggled option. Just friendly input!
The developers really care
by Bike-Boy on 2018/04/15 13:22
The developers of this app have poured their hearts into it, and it shows. It’s full of virtually everything any weather hound could want, with multiple user options on what to display. The graphics could use some more design work, but apparently these very responsive developers are already hard at work on that too. Kudos! I like the text descriptions of the day’s weather, summarizing all the numbers. Also cool to see the current temperature displayed right on the home page icon. Clever! Maybe someday the icon itself will change to picture the current weather, though I imagine Apple may not allow that. Some quirks still to be worked out: displaying negative numbers for the temperature (common for Celsius) and textual wind speed in knots. Yet the wind speed and direction compass is excellent, even showing the wind direction moving slightly to indicate that wind is never steady. (I’m a sailor so I’m intimately familiar with this.) Evidently the developers are also planning to make the clock smaller (we all have many other sources of the time), which should allow some of the more weather-related displays to enlarge. One suggestion to the developers: don’t worry about adding more features for now, at least before the display is revised. This app has plenty!
Awesome app
by RLewis2492 on 2019/06/02 13:06
Like so many others, I counted on the Storm app for accurate forecasts. When it was discontinued, I downloaded nearly every weather app available to find a satisfactory replacement. The first thing I would do is compare the reported temperature with the actual temperature at my location. If it was off, I would delete the app and try another one. I wish I had seen this app earlier - it would have saved me a lot of aggravation. This app presents not only accurate temperature, but the forecast is typically right on the mark. The app presents a wealth of information in a very useable format, including current conditions and an accurate view of what’s coming. I have relied on the new Storm app for radar data, but this app’s radar presentation seems to be every bit as accurate and readable. I wish I had found this app sooner.
Best app to replace Storm!
by Kismet423 on 2018/05/26 17:22
Weather Underground’s Storm app has been my favorite weather app for years, but unfortunately it was taken over by TWC and they shut it down. Their new “TWC Storm” app is awful and does not have the weather data and map layers I desire, so I set out in search of a new weather app. You could say I’m a bit picky about my weather app. There are tons of apps out there and I downloaded them all to try out, but none of the others have what Weather Mate offers. I love: -The hybrid map setting. -The dual/overlapping satellite and radar layer. -The flexibility to adjust layers: I usually always have the sat/radar layer, storm tracks, weather fronts, lightning, and hurricane layers on since we live in FL. -The ability to adjust the weather parameters/data I see in the current and hourly forecasts (this has more data than the Storm app!). -The intuitiveness of the layout, such as daily to hourly forecasts. -The customer service. I have had a couple email exchanges with them and have received fast responses back. I believe a good weather app should provide you with all the data you could ever want, but allow you to configure it to suit your needs in an intuitive manner with a clean look. This app does that! (I liked the app so much I decided to buy the ad free version.)
Great Apple Watch App
by Timwhite1 on 2019/06/04 20:04
Great Apple Watch app with hourly and extended forecasts - vertical scroll with temp and conditions together like we all expect. Not sure why Apple thought we’d like to read the conditions and temperature on separate screens around a circular dial - I immediately went looking for a replacement to the native Watch weather app. But these guys at WeatherMate got it right. Awesome app and great new options in the Watch face complications with the latest update. The iPhone app was also very handy in the radar view during recent spring tornados and severe storms. Has a unique graph overlay and draw tool to easily estimate how close you are to the storm (miles / km). Their support team is super responsive too - same day or next day responses and even developed feature enhancements within weeks. I’m impressed with this team and their product. Thank you!
If you miss WU Storm...
by Marlinspike Hitch on 2019/05/18 17:48
After the abomination The Weather Channel turned the elegant WU Storm into I was at a loss for a weather app that let me “see” what was going on by displaying the fronts, highs, lows and wind patterns. Thank goodness for this app. It delivered on what I missed in WU Storm and more (how about the addition of NOAA radio as well!). I’m anxiously awaiting an interface update as the current one is a bit clunky but nonetheless this is my go to weather app bar none. Nice job! Update, After using this app for a few weeks and exploring what it has to offer, I am even more impressed with the abundance of tools at my finger tips. It also seems more accurate than the “hyper local” apps. The only thing I would suggest is a more robust alert/notification section. This is a superior app well worth the few dollars for the Pro version. Buy this app!
Great Weather app
by Honeyresin on 2019/03/27 16:18
This is a good all round weather app. I like the hour by hour and the dashboard layout. It is buggy and wildly inaccurate sometimes but it gets fixed quickly. Seems to have a problem correlating displayed data into forecast. In example reported 20 mph sustained wind speed reported in bar but wind chill does not reflect that and button display still says 4 mph. I don't like that I can't see the temperature in all my cities in a list so I can compare them. I do like I can set my own parameters for what appears on my screen. This app really gathers a massive amount of weather parameters in one place. I like having all those parameters, but if that data is not updated to current conditions in a timely manner it can't be utilised. I have to fact check against another app. But hey its just weather and it is fun.
Excellent for go-to weather app
by Flyingfilly on 2019/07/24 16:57
Being somewhat weather obsessed, I have several weather apps. As noted elsewhere, it used to be that one in particular was priority. Over the years, that app lost its most valuable features as it morphed into ever evolving names (Intellicast, Storm, then Storm Radar) and has now become a high priced subscription app with very few and just basic features. Weather Mate Pro has made all of the difference! It contains far more features than other weather apps, and supplies a wealth of information. The only criticism that I currently have is that it does not send notifications as selected. Perhaps with further settings tweaks or an update, this might be resolved. Overall, I am very pleased with Weather Mate’s capabilities and am glad to have found it because of another review.
Western Slope Colorado
by older than most on 2019/05/01 14:36
With the death of wunderground,and whatever Storm was called before it was trashed, many of us thought it was going to be near impossible to find those kinds of sites again. I’m an advanced amateur, ex sailor and know my way around most of the charts and maps made available by USWS and noaa and do my own forecasts for myself here in western Colorado/eastern Utah and for a few friends on the west coast just to see how close I can get. Anyway, there’s lots here and after a few times around the site and all its layers etc, it’s become a worthy replacement for Wunderground. The only issue that stops me from the Top Rating is that the frontal boundaries do not move with visual/radar images. Since the “active” screen is “Past” by some 45-70 seconds it would be nice to see the frontal boundaries keep up with the radar/satellite imagery. Still, it’s great site, with good support. Well done.
Tried them all. This is tops
by petenbama on 2019/10/20 12:06
Finally bit bullet and purchased pro. Easy 5 stars. A true weather junkie who has literally tried every free iOS weather app past 7 years along with a few disappointing paid ones. Only the discontinued Storm truly satisfied me. Weather Mate Pro is the only legit replacement imo. No choice but to support the developer for this sterling app with a very fair one time fee. In fact I think this app may be better than old Storm for several reasons, two for example: 1-GOES Satellite to see cloud cover in visible, water vapor, and infrared modes. 2- Best in class widget where you can customize and add as many parameters or complications as you wish. So helpful that I don’t need to open main app unless I want to check map. As for the map with radar and satellite it is so rich with layers and customization that you can set it just exactly for what’s important to you. And it bears repeating, this app uses the vast national network of personal weather stations to receive seconds old current data that’s truly hyper local. Along of course airport weather stations. I live in small town SE Alabama and have three personal weather stations entered all within 8 mile radius of home, one of which is just a mile distant.
Best customizable weather app
by DonPablo21 on 2019/10/07 11:34
Definitely the best weather app for people who know what they want and aren't afraid to spend some time customizing it. The radar includes layers that competing apps lack (fronts-earthquakes-100 mile rings), users can choose which details to show in which order in the main app and the Today widget, and there are lots of ways to customize Apple Watch complications (including both temperature and rainfall in a single Infograph corner or circle). I just wish there was a way to display a small radar view from the main screen (instead of forcing users to click the little button on top), and for the app to remember that the details sidebar was opened in Text Only or the daily details were closed in Advanced view when the app is reopened.
Real Weather Information
by Tunbridge1 on 2019/07/15 20:51
Finally. An app that provides meaningful weather information. I used Storm for a long time and thought it was a great app until it was dumbed down this year. It’s replacement has shown the same frontal information for over 2 months now with no response to this issue from support. Although I just downloaded Weather Mate Pro and don’t have much experience with the app, I’m finding the information it provides fantastic. Frontal info. Historic weather. Great weather depiction display. NWS Forecast Discussion - all with very fast refreshing. Plus there’s the NWS Radio broadcast!!! I applaud the developers of this app for providing a REAL weather app. Update: After using this app for months, I can say it’s living up to my first impressions. A great weather app for casual or more serious users! Update #2: The data source for the Windstream apparently was down for awhile. I reached out to support who told me it would be available with the next update. Update just out and Windstream is now functioning along with other enhancements. Most importantly though, support reached out in an email to let me know of the fix. How outstanding is this!!!! If I could give 10 stars I would without hesitation.
Try it, you’ll like it.
by Harley Nut on 2018/11/02 02:51
I’m an avid motorcyclist so weather is very important to me since riding in the rain and cold are not on my list of favorite things to do. For a quick check of what’s happening weather-wise and for short range predictions, this has become my “Go To” weather app for general weather information. There are other apps and websites I use for much more detailed or hour by hour in-depth information but in all fairness, that is not what this app is intended to do. What it will do is give you good accurate information about current weather conditions and short range general predictions for just about anywhere and present it in a user friendly and a very easy to understand interface. Like the title of this review says “Try it, you’ll like it!”
Best weather app!
by Jazzman80 on 2019/08/11 18:04
This is the first weather app I’ve ever purchased, and I absolutely love it. It gives you so much information, and the design interface is sleek and organized. The radar screen buffers very well with both past (2hrs) and future (6 hrs), with ability to pause and scroll manually. The customizable map with layers is great. I still give it 5 stars, however if I could change anything, I wish the hourly forecast was condensed. To view hourly, you have to do a lot of scrolling, and I would prefer to see 8-12 hours of forecast at one time without needing to scroll. I’ve seen other apps that use a line graph on hourly forecasts with info like highs, lows, % precipitation, etc. This is the only thing I would change, but I still love this app!
Excellent source of weather data
by Nip & Tuck on 2019/10/16 12:24
your maps and the details on weather facts. The maps are better than any other weather app map available. I love it as it is available. I also appreciate the daily summaries for a week. Able to look ahead as well as history. I use it daily. Thanks This is the best weather app of all I have used. It is easy to use and I can read it easily despite AMD. The map is easy to understand and estimate the arrival of weather. I love the hourly forecast. Thank you for all the wonderful data. Well I still think you are super with about all aspects of the weather station. I ditto all the above.! I still feel very positive about this app. Keep up Yuen’s details you provide in such a simple , useful, clear format.
Amazing app! Only one minor inconvenience.
by WMRK2 on 2019/07/11 16:39
I’ve been searching for a real replacement to my favorite app of all time, WU Storm. The TWC Storm app never did much for me and recently they are asking for payments on things that where free. Now Weather Mate is exactly what I wanted! I can see great data with ease, information from my own PWS and it is quick!! The UI looks classic, but in a way its great. A lot of information at a glance. Theres also many tools, like Air quality, Flight Planner, Weather history, and many more. The map also has a lot of great tools, reminds me of the original Storm app. I encourage everyone to try the free version, specially if you miss WU Storm. I’m pretty sure that, just like me, you’ll immediately will pay for this version. Now for my minor inconvenience: the app says that government alerts are not available for my locations because its only for US. But I’m on Puerto Rico and this is a US territory and we get NWS alerts like everyone else. So can I get this fixed? Hurricanes are about to start their never ending strike over my area and these alerts are crucial. I’ll contact the developer soon but just put this here in case they respond. Thanks in advance.
This one has it all!
by SquantoDog on 2018/06/23 18:58
I want an app that tells me everything at a glance. This app is it! I have bought all the top 20 weather apps and this one give the most comprehensive amount of weather-related data in one screen. I like it has a iwatch app too. I also wanted a radar that was robust as weather pro. Very happy this app has all of it. Dark weather is boring and provides little data. Radar pro is good, but little in the way of forcasting. Carrot weather is cool, but radar is weak. My weather pro is a close second, but I want to see all the data without having to navigate around the app. this app is like my storm/weather underground that has died off due to advertisements. This is a great replacement for the same app on all my apple devices.
Thank You!
by musiccity1 on 2019/10/08 23:56
I normally wait at least a few weeks before writing a review but not today! I downloaded this app last night and have explored it for a couple of hours. We live on an island in the Eastern Caribbean and having the ability to see potential trouble isn’t just something “nice” or interesting, it can be life changing. (We survived Irma’s rath directly overhead two years ago. Which was followed in close succession by Jose and Maria.) I was relying on a competitive App which has subsequently been deprecated for no apparent reason, losing tools I find here once again! For instance, the ability to mark and detail activity on the radar. I also VERY MUCH APPRECIATE that this is a single purchase investment. I have subscription fatigue. Finding this feature rich App goes to show that the best truly can surface to the top and if competition missteps,it is someone else’s opportunity to shine. My forecast for this App are many bright, sunny, days, ahead. UPDATE: After several months of daily use through (most) of a hurricane season, I couldn’t be happier! Great, feature rich, app! It is 5 star and I would pay for an Apple TV app were it offered. Thank you again!
