Too many ads
by LivesOnaHill on 2019/12/07 02:11
Even The Weather Channel app doesn’t have as many pop-up ads! Dang. But the snow depth filter is pretty neat.

Scam alert! Billed multiple times for subscription !!!!
by Matt on BC on 2019/12/05 16:50
I sign up for the subscription and they billed me 2 to 3 times per month for the same subscription. I did not authorize multiple subscriptions. Even after I cancelled I was billed multiple times. Don’t buy this scam of an app. Prepare for a headache trying to sort this out.
I want my money back!
by Tex979 on 2019/12/05 15:41
I paid for the subscription as now all I get is ads for upgrade and tons of full page ads wanting me to by other apps. This this not software. It is spamware. The worst I have ever seen.
Most Deceptive App Ever
by worstdecisionever on 2019/12/05 13:26
Most people only need a weather update for a special occasion. So they download the app, and forget for a couple weeks they have it downloaded. Only to find out that this app already made you agree to paying them $12/month! Take my word for it - TAKE YOUR TIME SOMEWHERE ELSE! It will save you a lot of money.

Very accurate always
Deceptive
by asdecgbh on 2019/12/03 18:23
This is a subscription with recurring charges that were not evident to me on subscribing. I take responsibility but can say if I was aware I wouldn’t have purchased so I regard the design and execution as deceptive at best
Auto subscribed to $5 a month
by auznaindkakfines on 2019/12/02 14:00
This garbage tries to auto subscribe you to $5 a month for weather, which is available for free from 100 different places. Garbage
Ads make it unusable
by Graham_Grahamson on 2019/12/02 01:57
Features seem good but ads are too frequent, are intrusive, and at times downright deceptive. Will be trying others apps
Great Local Forecasts
by Ed in Adams County on 2019/12/02 01:38
Much more accurate that Yahoo Weather and other forecast sites.
Not Free
by Schagb on 2019/12/02 00:02
So I download this app only to find out you have the ‘privilege‼️’ to subscribe and cancel a month at a time to avoid the fee. Forget about it, I have other free weather apps.. Weather Underground and Storm Radar, just hoping to add a NOAA app 😤
Temperature wrong
by ThisIsATestOfTheNicknameSystem on 2019/12/01 18:46
Future temp forecast is wrong almost all the time, by a significant margin. Very unfortunate.
Did not want to pay
by Draco5150! on 2019/12/01 16:28
I tried the app and didn’t really get a use out of it. Got a message from my credit card that I got charged $2.99 for a subscription I didn’t know I had, I canceled it and found out I won’t be refunded for something I’m not even using, this is ridiculous.
Wrong town
by asdssdadxsdd on 2019/11/30 02:51
Not useful when I am sitting in a thunderstorm and the radar is showing me a city 4 hours away.
Weather Rafar
by azsunbum on 2019/11/29 19:08
I use this app to stay informed of incliment changes. It's a very handy app to have. It's easy to navigate to see a specific city, state or country's local radar weather. Customise your settings to and go. Give it a try. Lisa
Too many adds

Greatest app ever!
by L C J 2000 on 2019/11/27 21:39
I gave an honest review of this app and then had Apple harassing me for my one star review. I don’t need the hassle so here’s my updated review. This app will undoubtably change save and better lives! It is accurate to beyond all human comprehension! If you don’t have this app you are a weather denier!
When good apps go bad
by Pendragon2875 on 2019/11/27 10:07
I’m a fan of this app until after having it for 10 years with full functions, they desire to charge a user monthly fee. I understood if the added more functionality or a video service for your area but to chop it up and start charging, it is disrespectful to those who by word of mouth recommended the app. I’m just disappointed and will be looking for another app.
Loved the app until today
by Quinnie70 on 2019/11/26 19:42
I loved the app and would have given this app 5 stars But it no longer works....I just get a black screen when it opens...tried to reinstall it twice..... ☹️

Worst app ever... annoying app itself and it’s a vortex for annoying pop ups!!! Deleted!
Wayyyy Overpriced!!
by Keeping It Real Y'all on 2019/11/25 10:25
NOAA provides free detailed and accurate weather on its website. NOAA is a government agency funded by our tax dollars. Why would I pay this developer $4.99 a month for NOAA weather reports and radar that I can get for free directly from NOAA?
Blank screen
by Phayes1961 on 2019/11/24 15:21
I now get a blank screen. I will be canceling mi subscription until you fix it.

Scam
by tbriggs on 2019/11/20 18:53
Poking around the app I accidentally hit a button and it signed me up for 2.99/week auto payments. Screw that.
All of a sudden I have to PAY!
by onespunmonkey on 2019/11/20 03:20
Had this app for over a year and now I Have to PAY! Thanks for nothing!
Needs design work
by Purchaser000 on 2019/11/19 17:54
This app shows pretty radar images, but two key areas are problematic: 1. The timeline is critical to interact with in order to see the specifics of all radar data. It's got a TINY scrubber handle at the very top of the viewport (the most awkward place possible to reach w one hand). Also the scale of the timeline itself is constantly shifting. In other words, where the present moment is on the timeline is totally ambiguous, and shifts based on map type. You can't quickly tell if you're looking at the present or the past, and all of this changes based on the map type you have selected. 2. There is no indicator that data has yet to be loaded for a moment in time. This is highly misleading; is the radar clear, or is information still loading and about to pop in? There's no reason not to have a loading indicator, especially for people in remote areas with limited data connectivity. Without it, you're essentially presenting incorrect weather.
Conflict of interest
by AzCat1762 on 2019/11/19 14:12
NOAA is ours and should be a free service. It should not be used to drive business to the weather channel.

Can’t stop charges
by egingrich on 2019/11/12 23:47
I like the App, but no longer wanting the Pro options, and have no way to stop these payment. I also notice there is no phone number or way to contact company to stop charges for an app I no longer use! Very upset
Pd $19.99 But Does NOT have AK radar!!
by msrevie on 2019/11/12 17:53
The app makes no mention if not providing any radar for Alaska except for tiny area near WA, even though it correctly marked my location, but it gladly took my money!
Typical of a Trump Associate Product
by cheeterah on 2019/11/12 14:50
7 Day forecast never works. Its a rape and pillage of NOAA. They remain a wonderful organization. They were given to crooks
Duh
by Mailmon on 2019/11/10 16:09
Don’t need a rectangle with my city name that overlays most of the area I’m looking at; suggest you make it a display option or, if that’s too complex, then a simple dot! If such an option already exists, I am hard pressed to find it.
It’s ok
by Jonathan Rooney on 2019/11/10 00:42
It’s ok but you have to pay to get more information and it didn’t tell snow amounts
Great App
by Tudie54 on 2019/11/09 05:38
I think I use the NOAA Radar App more often than most people. We live in Hawaii, and our Island is known for frequent rains and Hurricane landings. I don’t understand the writers on past reviews, saying “it’s not free” or “doesn’t work at all”. I’ve used this Free, very user friendly app, with all information and radar viewing in my opinion is Excellent. They even send me e-mails, to confirm what their radar is showing. They have been 100% accurate in telling me what’s coming at us. We live 1 mile from the Pacific Ocean, so we are notified often a storm, hurricane watch, or tsunami is a threat. NOAA App, THANK YOU!!🌤⛈🌙☂️🌊🌈
Just downloaded
by Dr lupini on 2019/11/07 23:39
Since I trust NOAA I downloaded this a few minutes ago. I cannot figure out what the 54 is showing on my app. I know it isn’t current temp as that is 36 now. Any suggestions!

NOAA weather pro .....no
by 73-43 on 2019/11/07 13:25
I was thinking of getting the pro version when I noticed A simple thing you got wrong. Cyclones or typhoons are cyclonic, which are LEFT turning weather feature. On your intro to pro that tracks them actively you have the icon turning to the right against even the icon indicators of LEFT turning which is the direction of spin of cyclones and as shown by the indicators on the icon image. If you can not get this right what else is flawed.
Fascinating
by Dotisophistique on 2019/11/07 10:47
Prior imaging studies are no comparison. Perfect for the pocket, enormously detailed. I can’t compare it to any forecasting app yet. Vibrant map design and colors, legible text.
NOAA Weather
by Maddog1963 on 2019/11/07 07:27
It is very good app and helpful. I love the Radar reports
Extremely restrictive
by Notapaidreviewer on 2019/11/06 09:27
Radar is effectively useless. There's a bug that won't show the radar unless you use the present (now) time slider and slide it to the right to see the current radar even though the slider says the radar position in the future. Most of the worthwhile features require the premium version. Paying for a mobile weather app is absurd in my opinion. However, paying for a desktop version would be justified.
Don’t recommend!!😐
by Sawyer Stockton on 2019/11/05 13:29
The app is ok, I can’t find how to send weather. It is snowing and raining here in Rochelle Illinois! They don’t have that on the radar. I do not recommend this app
USVI
by catcha later on 2019/11/05 01:09
Doesn’t work well in USVI area, in the upper states I’ll hope to be able to rate 4+ as the weather there is more predictable.

Beware of free and inability to cancel
by Kjhfdshk on 2019/11/02 01:50
Like many others who have reported here, there is a “free” trial and then you automatically get charged weekly and sometimes more than weekly $2.99. Good luck trying to cancel the subscription that you didn’t authorize. When you go to your subscriptions, you’ll see the NOAA app (which is also misleading) and no active subscription and no ability to cancel the subscription either because technically you don’t have one. However, you’ll keep getting charged $2.99 randomly. I’ve contacted Apple Support and will fight these charges until all are removed.
Poor service
by Sheila Gates on 2019/11/01 11:28
Charges my Apple account everytime I use the app instead of monthly.
What happened to free?
by Chewiesmom5 on 2019/11/01 01:55

Bad app
by Headnuts on 2019/10/27 15:43
This app is riddled with full screen pop ups that trick you into a subscription and charges you weekly. It’s scamming users into a subscription. Be aware of this sketchy app.
As others note, a scam
by tsannes on 2019/10/27 15:14
This app has the worst built in charges of any app I’ve downloaded. Even after deleting this mediocre app. DO NOT DOWNLOAD unless you’re ready for $2.99/week charge (seriously, how would this be a reasonable charge for radar app??)

Yeah. Too many ads. Stop asking me to upgrade to premium. The weather is not that important to me.
Not Free. Not Goernment.

NOAA WEATHER

NOAA’s weather information is always accurate and up to the minute. I also like your format. It is simple, easy to use and gives me the information I need in order to plan my day. Thank you.
Keep looking
by jnrnhrsddfu on 2019/10/25 01:29
There are a lot of weather radar apps. This is... one of them. You will be pressured tirelessly into buying premium. Mostly unusable due to full screen ads interrupting you and premium features not being grayed out—any time you skip up and forget what you’re allowed to use, you’re greeted with a screen begging you for money. Pretty rough UX. No wonder they’re spending money on ads.
Shady!
by Fantastish!! on 2019/10/24 22:21
The app should let you know that a weekly subscription is required ti use the app BEFORE you download it. Delete!
Cancel

How do I cancel this. I don’t use it.
Cool source
by Omer dokee on 2019/10/24 15:02
This is my go to weather app because it is legitimate source material. But honestly, it’s not really user friendly. I’m sorry that I can’t make a recommendation to make it better, but it can most certainly be made better.
Terriable forcasts
by laxkid7 on 2019/10/24 10:47
Im taking meteorology classes right now and my professor and i look at the forecasts(because i show him since tis apps forecasts don't make sense) and he agrees he has no clue who would hire someone who makes god awful forecasts. Even if its not them making it they should still be able to use common meteorology sense and realize that its not a good forecast. So with that said this app is only good for the radar. Forecast are never accurate. Id love to see the % of how many days they actually forecast correct. Bet its a sorry little number. Also my professor is now making sure no one in my lecture hall uses this app. Thats how inaccurate they are.

by chris676767653 on 2019/10/22 17:15

Watch out for monthly/weekly subscription
by KChicogs on 2019/10/22 11:56
App is decent but tricks you into a 2.99 weekly subscription.
Great tool
by Fun one 11821 on 2019/10/21 15:53
This is great to have no matter if you are home or traveling. You can see where the weather is and see where is is going. Use it all the time!
Nope
by Brewsparks on 2019/10/21 11:57
As soon as you open the app for the first time they hit you with a deceptive pop up that makes it look like you have to agree to a seven day trial with an automatic subscription. You can X out of the screen, but have to deal with full screen adds. The Radar data is the same as every other weather app, not worth it.
Crappy

Recent changes?
by KaseyWolff on 2019/10/21 06:03
Last few times I try review weather alerts it would prompt me to go premium and start a free trial. When I went back to the maps after declining my maps were blank. I thought it was just a glitch but it has consistently happened. Had a severe weather alert, checked, once again prompting to go premium. Accuweather and Local news apps showed data, noaa blank. I don’t mind ads much but withholding info just doesn’t help.

Technically not free. After 7 days they begin charging 3$ week.

App review
by Qignacio on 2019/10/18 20:07
The app was great while it worked, it stopped forking for me a few months back, I emailed the team got a quick response and it started working before anything. It hasn’t worked again for weeks and still waiting for it, paid and can’t use it. If they get it up and running I would rate it 5 stars.
Good information, but ads
by alanroberts91 on 2019/10/17 16:30
I don’t mind the ads at the bottom of the screen, but I wish there wasn’t any pop up ads.
Junk
by TJ7097 on 2019/10/17 16:24
Didn’t work well when it was free. Now just a black screen on iPhone X. I also have an iPhone 6s and it’s no longer free. Deleting app from all phones and going with a free app that actually works. Junk!!
Cancelling app
by dmd1658 on 2019/10/17 14:01
I can’t find the auto renew anywhere in the app to cancel.
Really like but needs 1 improvement.
by J's Revolution on 2018/10/11 18:21
This app works well. To bad most people can’t read well enough to see that the trial and pricing issue are ‘user’ based and have nothing to do with bad or misleading practices, sheesh, slow down and read, actually read. My one suggested change is to go with a different map service. I like Mapbox myself. I want more detail when I zoom out and Mapbox provides this. If I compare this app to the map service in my current weather app Storm from TWC, they use Mapbox, much greater detail when zoomed out on the same regions. Other than this issue, which hopefully you’ll consider, I’m looking forward to making this my full time weather app! Plus, the yearly fee of $9.99 which can be chosen during the trial, feels great. Reading AND understanding will carry you far ;)
Love This App

Love it b/c it let’s me look at the weather in other cities before I finalize my travel plans so I will know what the weather will be where I’m going and the outlook for several days which makes it easy to make decisions to still go or postpone due to possible bad weather forecasted. For example I was planning a trip to the Mountain here in Asheville, North Carolina and found that the weather was not going to be in my favor due to snow. First, I’m disabled and can’t take chances on being stuck somewhere I’m not able to get back home cause they shut down the highway when bad weather comes. Second, where I currently reside in North Carolina we get plenty of bad weather from snow, sleet, freezing rain and blizzard (due to nor Easters). I don’t take chances at home so why would I want to take chances somewhere else. I can’t take a risk of falling b/c of several medical issues that restrict my ability to get around (both knees been replaced and currently waiting on date for lower spine surgery) along with several other medical issues that restrict my ability to just go and take unnecessary chances. This app helps me make smart decisions that will best help me protect my health. Love it. It’s a 5 Star App. Highly Recommend you get it if you don’t already have it.
Better than the full website for fast information
by Mikeane1 on 2019/08/15 09:46
I have used the ‘full’ NOAA website for three decades to track hurricanes and watch for local bad weather. I have not used the app for hurricanes, yet, but the local maps for the radar loop are problematic, even with internet service, on the iPhone. They are almost useless for accurate local data on tornadoes (still great for tracking larger storms and rapidly moving fronts) due to data limits, particularly heavy local cell system usage during tornadoes. This app trims links to the massive database at NOAA for the power of a shorter ‘history’ (4 passed tracks to 7 on the full website, or 35-40 minutes instead of 70 minutes), but the ‘loss’ of tracking information is minor and FAST current data is more useful during sudden weather and for driving. It was invaluable during a recent trip to New Orleans to time leave times and plan stops to avoid pop up thunderstorms. Nothing but good things found with app over NOAA main website and local news weather apps (lots of adds with the ‘locals’ and websites are problematic to find using iPhone when traveling).
BUYER BEWARE Terrible - Bait and Switch - Not Free - Deceptive
by Emilee3 on 2019/09/02 02:27
It says it’s free in the App Store, but then you can’t even open the App until you sign up for a paid subscription. Really shady considering I think many people come to the app looking to track hurricanes that may threaten their lives and the makers of this app are trying to take advantage of them. Just do the right thing and list that it has a cost up front. It does have a ONE WEEK free trial option but that is linked to auto renew in 1 WEEK at $2.99 PER WEEK and I think the free trial doesn’t even include SHOWING the hurricanes anywhere, you would need to purchase the PREMIUM subscription for that, but you don’t find out any of that until after you sign up for auto renew. Also BUYER BEWARE, if you decide not to get the free trial and you leave the app, but then go back later thinking fine, I’ll just do the one week trial and remember to cancel in one week if the app is not good, the RATE HAS CHANGED to a 3 DAY TRIAL that auto renews in 3 DAYS and NOW AT $3.99 A WEEK! Super shady and sneaky. Most deceptive app I’ve ever come across. Seems like these people are trying to take advantage of people afraid of an impending potentially tragic hurricane and seems exactly like a form of price gouging, and just low low low business tactics. It’s incredibly shameful.
App tricks you into paying upfront
by santiagoqr1 on 2018/09/22 15:31
Downloaded the app, authorized the download with my fingerprint, then opened the app and was immediately prompted by another screen asking for my fingerprint, right after I said that I didn’t want to pay, that I just wanted the free version, they don’t clarify that the free version is 7 days free, and after that is paid. When it prompted me the second time for my fingerprint, I never thought I’d be paying a week later, since I selected the free version. I know they’re going to say “but it says on the screen that it’s not free” thing is, they use smaller fonts and on the bottom, making it deceiving and impossible to see at first glance. Also, NOAA is a government agency, pretty much the “Weather Bureau” (as you used to be called) you’re funded by taxes, literally “for the people by the people”, why do you charge people for an app, that only mirrors something that it’s already paid for with tax dollars, I know there’s app developers and support and everything, but the department doesn’t live off these payments through the AppStore, your department has an anual budget, so why, WHY, why charge people for something that’s already paid for, AND SUCH AN OUTRAGEOUS AMOUNT!?
Weather channel 5* beats this apps Full-screen pop-ads,
by Sundaeluv on 2018/03/23 12:45
This would be a 5 star app if it werent for full screen ads that come up in seconds after opening. And weather details that slide open/closed/open/closed so cant read the forecast! Weather Channel app opens to beautiful scene, gives forecast and if scroll we can see radar, week ahead, etc. Sorry developers, you still after all these months cant get this NOAA app to function well. Instead of creatively having ads within the app page the pop-up ads cover full screen, often X to close ad is hidden, cant get ad to close. After getting to page the weather report that pops out of the right side goes away before you can read it, weather is gone and wont come back until you keep clicking, dragging etc. or close app and open again, but then you get another page covering ad again. Shame the app developers dont know how to build an app that has ads creatively in them like so many other apps. Deleted this again, I love the Weather channel app SO much better!
Severe Weather App Review
by Mr. Cochroach on 2017/09/23 23:44
Being in Puerto Rico, it is necessary to have a severe weather app for the voracious Atlantic hurricane season. With the recent hurricanes Irma and Maria, this app had to be in handy. However, this app is full of ads that pop up. Usually I close them, but this time around when hurricane Maria was closing in on the island, I left the app running continuously, while watching the dark clouds and squally weather coming off of the Caribbean. Little did I know, an advertisement popped up while I was gone. I came back a few hours later to find that the phone was acting up. I got the notice that a virus had been encrypted into the phone. The awful advertisement opened by itself and virused my phone. Little did I know that the eyewall was an hour away and my pet bird was outside. I had no way of knowing because of the viral malware, and the winds picked up to 130 before I knew it and my bird was gone. Please find a way to filter these malicious ads out of your application, because this situation was completely unwarrented.
Another subscription radar/weather app
by nxcoco on 2017/12/17 14:05
Who are the weather app developers? They must be those kind of people who think so much that they cannot really get anything right. This app just became more and more terrible. The radar alone is so dumb. It projects to the next day so while you think you are watching current weather conditions. You are actually watching radar data that may or may not happen. It makes the simple act of looking at a radar so confusing and dumb. It’s also full of ads unless you buy the subscription. Please help deter this disturbing trend by not buying this app and rating it low. In a few years they will have us paying 40 dollars a year for weather forecasts. This is how it starts. I'd rather pay up front and be done with it. I’m about to give up on radar apps. I wish someone would make and app that’s a current radar with the ability to put down pins. That’s it. They used to exist. There seems to be some sort of developer gold rush for subscription apps being done by idiots right now.
Needs design work
by Purchaser000 on 2019/11/19 17:54
This app shows pretty radar images, but two key areas are problematic: 1. The timeline is critical to interact with in order to see the specifics of all radar data. It's got a TINY scrubber handle at the very top of the viewport (the most awkward place possible to reach w one hand). Also the scale of the timeline itself is constantly shifting. In other words, where the present moment is on the timeline is totally ambiguous, and shifts based on map type. You can't quickly tell if you're looking at the present or the past, and all of this changes based on the map type you have selected. 2. There is no indicator that data has yet to be loaded for a moment in time. This is highly misleading; is the radar clear, or is information still loading and about to pop in? There's no reason not to have a loading indicator, especially for people in remote areas with limited data connectivity. Without it, you're essentially presenting incorrect weather.
Not a good start
by MrPete56 on 2018/07/22 15:35
I just downloaded this app because my old weather app just changed drastically for the worse. Reading these reviews makes me think the root data provider for all these types of apps just changed how it does business. That being said, I signed up for the one week free trial that will automatically renew after the free trial is over. When signing up, the price was stated as nine dollars and change a year. What they don’t tell you is that is only one of three options. Nine something a year, four something per quarter and three dollars a week. Guess which “plan” you are automatically renewed to? The three dollars a week. If you aren’t paying attention, you will have spent the price of a year subscription in under a month. This information was hidden in the entire sign up process. I wouldn’t have bothered to look if Apple hadn’t sent me an eMail spelling out the terms. I think there must be quite a few complaints for Apple to do that.
NOAA app for my iPhone is okay
by Ranchitaa on 2019/04/07 12:52
This app could use a little bit of an upgrade. The weather “alert” app is not working since I rely heavily for the alert for thunderstorms and flooding. We have cattle and we have a creek. We can loose some of our cattle if our creek gets flooded. So I’m constantly looking at the weather to be prepared to move cattle when we need to. But, the alert would be very helpful and would be less stressful for me since I’m too busy to keep watching for the weather..... 😑 However, I dislike the fact that there is another weather app you can purchase for $4.99 a month just to know where the lightning strikes are at, when I already have the NOAA app. I wouldn’t mind paying $0.99 a month for the extra’s not $4.99.
Just what I was looking for
by TR904 on 2018/12/22 13:10
Update: Another option I’d like to have is the ability to turn on alerts but turn on/off alert overlays on the map. This app presents all the information I’m looking for in a simple layout. With other apps radar is secondary, this app makes it primary but very easy to then get detailed weather info. Here are two improvements I’d recommend. Add selectable zoom levels for the radar at launch. The current setting is too focused and I have to zoom out to see the bigger picture. Maybe 50, 100, 300 miles out from location. Second I’d like the sunrise/sunset to be “smart”. After sunset display the sunrise time. After sunrise display the sunset time. No need for separate icons. Thanks for a great weather app!
This app has become a big mess.
by Twentdoggo on 2017/07/12 17:21
So, apparently this app now has a subscription you can subscribe to when they have an already one time pay premium app. Why? Why would you do this? Are you getting rid of the premium app? If so, why? There was nothing wrong with that app. This just makes the whole NOAA Weather Radar apps a whole mess. Also, this app claims to be the only app to show all NWS service alerts and warnings on the radar. I'm pretty sure MyRadar, Storm, and many other apps show alerts like this, and show more alerts than what this app shows. I was really debating weather to shell out and buy the premium app, but these reasons make me not want to. Updates come in every 3-6 months and the developers apparently don't really care about the consumer. You guys really have made a bad first impression with me. This app doesn't deserve the stars it already has.
This is not a free app
by dasprague on 2018/06/19 00:44
I downloaded this and when I opened it the first time, it asked me to turn on location services. I said no. The next thing that pops up is asking me to turn on location services. I again say no. The next pop-up tells me this is a 7 day trial and you the have to buy the app. Mind you, I still haven’t gotten into the app. That’s when I deleted it. Developers: you should just charge for the app up front, since it’s not really free. Get rid of the ads. You also need to drop the push to turn on location services. If I have them off, it’s because I know what they do, and if you think by asking a second time in a different way that you will get a different answer, you’re just wasting my time and making me extremely skeptical about what you use that data for and what else is hidden in the app. At best, this is deceptive advertising. At worst.... That could go too many ways, and all are nefarious.
Very good, but slow to update and dodgy on temps
by fredr1c on 2019/06/28 01:19
This app does everything it says it will do. However I’ve had a couple of occasions where the app’s temperature readings both current and predicted don’t agree with other sources for the same location or my own thermometer. These disagreements are wide in scope and long in duration — 7 - 10 degrees high or low, and they can last several days or more. So I can’t trust it for vacation planning, for example, without a double-check — something I learned by experience. It’s off by 7 degrees right now for my home location. For alerts, it will leave old expired alerts in place on the map even as it talks about new alerts elsewhere. So while it works very well and I’m a monthly subscriber I cannot recommend this app wholeheartedly until NOAA fixes these issues.
Charge after deletion
by Hal3th on 2018/10/16 14:22
I downloaded this application for one day. It’s an ok weather application. I subsequently decided to delete it as I felt I didn’t need it for a subscription of 3 dollars a week. However, even after deletion I was charged 7 times. It took me a while to realize this was the case since I live abroad and don’t use my home country’s bank account that often. So a warning that this application automatically signs you up for subscription during your free trial. It does warn you of this. However, even though you may delete the app and never look at it again, they will charge you unless you log into iTunes and look at your subscription list. This seems unreasonable if you aren’t using the application. TL;DR application will still charge you if you delete it before free trial is over. You need to go on your computer to cancel the automatic subscription even during the free trial period.
Siri shortcut doesn’t work
by 194922 on 2019/05/25 11:52
I really like this app, but I have 3 locations saved. (Toledo Ohio Brandon Florida and Ruskin Florida ) l recorded on Siri shortcuts, (show radar for Brandon,Florida) but when I ask Siri to show me the radar for Brandon, Florida, it always goes to the Toledo forecast and only gives me a verbal forecast. It won’t bring anything up from the NOAA Radar app at all. Nothing that I do, will get Siri to bring up what I want. I have a similar weather app and that one works fine, but your app is better and the one that I would like to use. But if I can’t get it to work, then I’ll have to stay with the app that works. I hope that you can fix the issue with the app and that I can use it with my Siri shortcuts.
ALL about the up-sell
by AppFzx on 2018/11/19 13:47
Going to be honest, I deleted this before I really got into it. I have MyRadar which I paid for and love but its info is sometimes delayed so I thought hey, why not get the info straight from the source! Before I could even use the NOAA app though, I was accosted by pop-up modal advertisements (can’t continue until you feign excitement and click something,) one of which was an option to pay to stop the advertisements. No, you can’t sell me mafia style “protection” from your ads because I have options. No, I don’t want to upgrade, you haven’t even shown me you can do anything yet. I paid to upgrade MyRadar long ago because they first proved themselves and then offered me more features with an upgrade. I may pay to upgrade it further because there are things they’re adding that look interesting but this app is a completely different model. Not ‘buying’ it.
Consistently Inaccurate
by Jbasangel on 2018/10/14 11:29
I don’t know why people say it isn’t free. Minus a few features I have yet to pay for general rain information. Although it gives a general idea of the weather with some accuracy, it consistently is off by several hundred miles. What I mean is that it will predict my town as being in the middle of a storm with heavy rain fall when in reality the system passes several hours south of us and we may see some overcast but no rain at all. On occasion it will be almost right with its forecast but for the most part it is what I call “3 star iffy.” But definitely free minus a few features and ads aren’t so frustrating. Just close them and then view the weather....the slightly inna irate but generally ok prediction of the weather.
Why does my location show the wrong city now?
by Really??123987 on 2018/11/04 17:08
This is my favorite weather app. I have a few because my little town is kind of a microcosm by itself so I take the best 3 out of 5. This app used to be super accurate, even showing my house temp at pinpoint location when it was different than town. However, within the last month or so it started showing Aurora instead of Bennett for the house location. I don’t care about Aurora’s weather. Tried to reinstall but still Aurora at my house and Bennett as the town location. Had to delete it finally and get a different app. Maybe I did something to make that happen but can’t figure out what. I already miss it 😞.
Decent, but pop ups prevent data loads
by Phynn on 2017/07/16 04:17
It is a pretty decent app, intuitive and easy to use. But it's only four stars because it seems like you get mor pop ups than weather info. Have a tornado warning? They'll let you know after you have to click through a pop up ad and two subsequent screens about various other apps. Also, the pop ups prevent the app data from updating. So it will still read data and radar from three hours ago, unless I force quit the app. With this many pop ups, I just don't want to pay them monthly subscription fees. They probably make much more off the constant ads.
What worse can be said
by HawaiiMaui on 2019/05/27 00:55
The hybrid map feature was neat, showing us Disney World real land layouts and weather. Any app with full screen ads just aren't worth it, unless it's once per day, this is showing ads for its own upgrade (which is a SUBSCRIPTION?! really, just charge once, I know weather data can be pricey but let's stop this loop of paying media companies for jacked up rates. Also cover the costs over time like every dev used to do instead of subscriptions.) In the end we used it for FL radar which can't be predicted, rain is guaranteed every day around 3-5pm, like the central regions of USA so it was only good for showing 5min delayed radar that it might be raining over top of you. Also customizable alerts are needed in all weather apps. Something like "Flood Warning" is worthless here, can't turn off just one category so disabled all notifications.
MyRadar app is above and beyond this
by Tbird1757 on 2018/08/20 12:33
We wanted an application that would warn us of severe storms in our area and we thought this was the application for us, particularly based on the sheer quantity of reviews shown, we were wrong. The application is trying very hard to be software as a service with a subscription-based system. It is certainly not worth the money as you cannot even customize some of the most basic features in the program. We live in a landlocked state here in the US, and we cannot even turn off the hurricane tracking alerts. While some people in those states may find those alerts very useful, since the hurricanes never reach us as far as Missouri the alerts are irrelevant and unnecessary. There should be an option to simply turn off the hurricane alert since that is one of the big selling point of this software as a service. It feels like they are just throwing features at the wall to see what sticks so they can justify their price of $10 a year. Have had this for three months until we got tired of the hurricane alerts waking us up in the morning. Finally decided to look for another app and found one in my radar. So we are eating the $10 for this app and moving on and not looking back.
Awesome NOT!!!
by butterflybandit on 2017/09/29 16:22
Ads used to run at the screen bottom in a narrow banner. Now it throws full-screen ads that often force your click! I took this app off my phone!!!!!!!!! IN RESPONSE TO THE DEVELOPER RESPONSE: Thank you for stating what is obvious -you just wasted "ink" and time for no good reason. I was not unaware that there is a"premium subscription" that gets rid of the ads. The problem lies in how the ads are now run with COMPLETE OBNOXIOUSNESS! I don't oppose ads in general when they are run as they used to be run on your app. The problem is that now they blow up full screen, instead of running discreetly on a banner at the bottom of the screen- which left me free to either continue checking my weather uninterrupted or clicking on an ad that truly caught my attention. It's a cheap way to force the clicks and you just lost a consumer who was loyal in the past. And after reading other current reviews that offer comparisons between what you offer and what other apps offer(Storm, for example), I see I'm making an appropriate choice. You must be getting paid per click. Why else would you ruin a perfectly good app with this style of ads display. You've gotten greedy. Tsk tsk tsk. Too bad. I believe you'll lose more customers than you'll gain.
Ads a necessity, some too obnoxious
by Qka on 2018/08/23 22:13
The ads are generally a banner at the bottom, barely obtrusive. Some insist on taking a whole screen and have to be dismissed. The worst, thankfully few, automatically launch themselves in Safari, so you have to close their tab and return to the app. The app itself is useful and is everything you need in a radar app. Covers the Continental US, Hawaii, and the more populaed parts of Alaska. Also the more populated parts of Canada. Does cover some other countries - what is probably a function of what is available and not an otherwise deliberate omission on the part of the developers.
Wonderful!
by Living ON Earth on 2019/09/06 21:37
Your app is just about as useless as the rest of em. Don’t understand why you even show radar, forecast, OR even current status. They’re NEVER even close. I know you don’t have the ability for real time but you can’t even correctly tell what it did 10 minutes or an hour or 25 hours ago. My 9 year old niece can draw it with a crayon more accurately. Anyone can do better with a wild guess or just “spin that wheel” or throw a dart while blind folded or any which way I want. The only thing I like about your app is the bright colored icon. Oh boy! Just give up and close the doors if you can’t do any better. I wouldn’t trust it now for the time, let alone weather. AND it can’t get within 100 yards of my location. I’d hate it if someone was counting on this app for a rescue. They’d have a long wait or die. Sheeesh! You blew it...
Weather forecast are better than local
by Bump. In the road on 2019/03/02 03:19
This has been a wonderful help for living in the Country. Thanks for the great information. And if you ever need an eye in the sky I’m a storm chaser. Did work for 2 local weather stations but didn’t pay well enough for even my expenses. If you need someone in this area 25 miles W. OF Wichita KANSAS. ANYWAY YOU PROVIDE GOOD INFO SOON ENOUGH TO BE READY. I’ve been in 5 Tornados including the one that went through McConell Air Force Base and then hit Andover KS. just some info , I decided to find them before they found me. You all are great and thanks for the important updates. Keep up the great work!
Too annoying to be useful
by Richard1252 on 2017/09/10 13:10
I'm sure this app offers a lot. But in the first few minutes of use it froze twice, necessitating shutdown and restart. It constantly bombards me with ads and popups—unacceptable when trying to access urgent weather information. The developers responded to a similar criticism by saying one can eliminate the ads by getting the paid version. My question to them is, why would I consider giving them money when the trial version is so buggy? I made the decision to delete it when one popup opened a browser window displaying a virus alert. I don't know whether a virus is even possible on an iPhone, but the idea that an app in the Apple Store could be susceptible to malware is my limit. I advise you not to waste your time.
Great App
by Tudie54 on 2019/11/09 05:38
I think I use the NOAA Radar App more often than most people. We live in Hawaii, and our Island is known for frequent rains and Hurricane landings. I don’t understand the writers on past reviews, saying “it’s not free” or “doesn’t work at all”. I’ve used this Free, very user friendly app, with all information and radar viewing in my opinion is Excellent. They even send me e-mails, to confirm what their radar is showing. They have been 100% accurate in telling me what’s coming at us. We live 1 mile from the Pacific Ocean, so we are notified often a storm, hurricane watch, or tsunami is a threat. NOAA App, THANK YOU!!🌤⛈🌙☂️🌊🌈
It’s okay, but there are better apps that are free
by Tracemo on 2019/08/26 03:18
I got this and decided to try it out in comparison to another weather app (weather 9). I didn’t see much of a difference until today. I open NOAA app to check out a potential hurricane brewing in the Caribbean. On the radar it didn’t show it. It did show it when I had to switch over to cloud coverage. The Hurricane tracking feature costs extra, as well as other features. I switched over to Weather 9 app and it showed the hurricane tracking for free without me having to turn the feature on. And that is what sealed the deal for me. I am now deleting NOAA’s app and will use Weather 9 for my primary storm tracking from my phone.

Little Boxes
by weatherido on 2019/08/11 18:12
I really like the app and use it multiple times a day. The only thing that bothers me are the two white “boxes” on the upper right hand side of the screen. I assume those would have something showing in them if I had the upgraded version. I find them to be quite annoying as they block off part of the screen. Please consider removing them for those of us who don’t want the upgraded version. Even if I had the other version I would still consider them very annoying.
Timeless Weather
by EagleMaster1245 on 2017/09/20 06:37
If you are on the go, wether it between two cities in a single state or cross country it scan and change your mind if to continue or stop for the night, and last but not least it could change your mind to just go back and try another day. In a recent trip I had complete half my trip and ran straight in to just the remnants of "Harvey". I was not given a choice but to stop in a place I would not wish my enemy. At least I had a roof over my head. However no lights, no water, and no air conditioner that worked.

I don’t know what I would do without the NOAA, Weather alert! My Wife and I as well as my Three sons always listen to this Application, to hear what’s going on in the area! For example when there are Tornado Warnings we know to hope for the best, but prepare for the Worst❗️ I fully recommend this Application to everyone who wants themselves and there Families to be Safe when a bad Weather alert comes in! I whole heartedly believe that everyone should have this Application and learn how to read it and use it for the best and most thorough Weather for there families
Falls short in border area (San Diego)
by Kimjamul on 2018/08/07 15:01
NOAA Weather has always been my go-to resource. But in a critical area, this falls very short. It does not allow the user to choose the animation (past vs forecasted). I live in the border area (San Diego) and the radar display stops at the border. Much of our weather originates south of the border, where 1) no radar display is shown and 2) the “Rain” overlay is “forecast” ONLY. I upgraded to the paid app hoping I would be able to see past-hour animation of monsoonal rains buildup (not just a forecast). Alas, I am still stuck with only a rain forecast—highly unreliable in our neck of the woods— and radar display that stops at the border. So sadly I’ll rely on other apps and discontinue my paid subscription. :-(
BEST WEATHER AP EVER
by Danny789! on 2018/06/23 05:44
This is the best and most trusted weather ap I know of hands down! My daughter is studying to become a meteorologist and this ap has everything needed for her to watch the weather 24/7. Long story short it well worth the pro 9.99 yr. sirens were going off in my town and my daughter just watched the weather pointing out where the circulation was and we did not have to leave in the storm to go to shelter. If you want the best up to the moment weather ap look no further you found all you need right here. Thank you radar pro!
Exploitative pricing scheme. $156 per year!
by L,.& on 2018/11/28 19:14
I downloaded this app about a month ago and just noticed that it’s been charging me $3/week. I think when I first got it I must have signed up for a free 7-day trial, and then it opts you in to weekly billing. I’m sorry but $3/week is $156 per year, which is absurd. They’re clearly hoping you just won’t notice this small charge and you’ll go along with it. If you sign up for the one year plan, it’s only $10/year, but I assume when you sign up for the free trial, it automatically puts you in weekly billing. You can see their dirty practices again with their 3 month price which works out to $24/year, 2.5x more than their yearly plan. Note also that none of this is displayed in the app when you’ve signed up. The only way to find it is to tap the “View” button which kicks you out to the iTunes store. If they were at least encouraging you to move to the yearly plan after a little while, I would have more sympathy but they’re clearly trying to hide it. Obviously it’s normal to give long-term customers somewhat lower pricing, but it’s not usually not a 2-15x multiplier!
Old Version was Better..
by Otka Werner on 2017/11/21 14:52
I used to check the old version all the time, due to it being easy to navigate and ran pretty quickly. However, the new update is slower and riddled with ads. There is a premium version, but why get that when it’s still going to be slow? And also, you have to get the premium version to get hurricane paths? Really?? I feel like you shouldn’t have to pay for that, as you didn’t have to pay for it before the big update. So to the developers, please give a little more availability to the user, and also (if you can) try to have a more reliable and faster running time.
Nope
by Booooooooooobbzzz on 2019/03/05 23:40
First off, way too many ads. It’s ridiculous. You can’t comfortably check the weather without having an advertisement pop up every couple of minutes, sometimes seconds. Secondly, why would I want to pay for a subscription? That’s just dumb. There are hundreds of weather apps, most notably MyRadar, that do not have a subscription service and are just as good, if not better, than this app. I don’t know what person would want to pay for a subscription to a weather app, but you need to be putting that monthly payment towards something more important. Do a quick app store search, you’ll find many others that work just as well and don’t charge you monthly. I would recommend MyRadar over this any day, sorry.
Purchased Premium years ago worked perfectly until recently
by VermilionScannerGuy on 2017/10/08 03:28
Up until recent the app reported in real time with forward cast perfectly. In the past few weeks, it is showing radar casts from 4 days in the past & at a different time! I tried uninstalling & reinstalling without any improvement. I had purchased this in a packaged deal along with 2 other weather apps. They both are functioning perfectly, this one has become totally useless. In that I live in Ohio on the Lake Erie coastline, lake effect weather can be nasty & until now this app helped to prepare when storms were moving in. Now, it's more effective to stand outside & use binoculars.
Life saver during Harvey
by redh894 on 2017/10/20 09:58
Regardless of all the negatives this app is wonderful. Very useful all the time but really was useful during Harvey. I happen to be out of state, but family was still at home in Houston I could keep my wife informed of what was coming her way. Example was a tornado 2 mile from the house was able to tell her to take cover. Much needed food an supply's was able to inform her of large breaks coming for her to get out to restock on food.. Keep up the good work & thank you... Houston Strong
Great
by KBW2181 on 2018/06/15 01:24
This app is great, simple as that. I only have one request, I’m a truck driver and I worry more about wind speed and storms than Fire so I wanted to know if you could give Wind speed it’s own notification tab because rite now it shares a tab with fire and while I’m on the road I get notifications all day about fire danger and I don’t want to turn it off because one of those notifications might be for hi winds lol so can you please separate wind and fire PLEASE??? Other than that everything is great Thank you.
The best for me
by Tandoran on 2019/03/13 11:53
This app provides detailed weather information all over north america and beyond. I have the premium and it’s well worth it. I’m learning much about weather patterns and can better anticipate what’s coming in my area as well as other areas I may travel to. I’m an old sailer and became fascinated years ago. The NOAA has developed and continues to develop the most innovative means of tracking and prediction of weather and its many events. I’ve followed the NOAA and it’s developments for years and am devoted.
Angry
by poopy pants magruff on 2018/09/13 13:19
The app worked most of the time but I always had to close out some little add that was in the way of me getting important weather reports. I understand that adds are a part of the free apps. operations. But These adds are getting out of control!! I received an alert on the app, opened it up and was greeted with ( not weather ) but a three question true or false quiz for a Walmart gift card. It couldn’t be buy passed or opted out or closed. So I could see the hurricane data. I deleted the app. Also when trying to submit my review I had to create a posting nick name and after 10 try’s I finally got one that wasn’t currently used ( including my own name ). Never bought anything from an app add

When you and your family’s lives depend on seconds the information you receive in the right time is your life source I feel Noah weather gives you the right information in enough time to save lives Being able to depend on this sets your mind at ease and help you to overcome your fears of uncertainties you have during bad weather What comfortto know someone cares and is always available when these times arise Thank you for your services
Go to the source
by Gordonista on 2019/03/25 18:13
I was a regular AccuWeather user until I read that they get all of their information from the National Weather Service, claim they have better data, and sell app users personal information even those who have asked them not to. I do not want To support their inaccurate self congratulation and I don’t like companies that sell my data without my permission. I therefore am now going to the source of their information, the National Weather Service.

Rural Unfriendly?
by GreenVariety on 2019/07/23 14:43
I’m wondering if it’s because I’m rural but this app stinks! I just got rid of it because I had to have my husband come pick me up due to freezing rain turning the entire road into a skating rink. No notification. No weather warning in the app (just double checked). I don’t have cable and am not a weather channel watcher so I rely on my app to do its job. I just downloaded accuweathers app and sure enough warning right at the top for my location. Had I known an ice storm was coming in I would have altered my plans so I could have at least driven my car home (or not left at all and put myself, my husband and others in danger).
Price point is to high.
by Ssamick on 2018/09/15 13:50
I have started to see this with a lot of other apps. At some point we have gotten a lot of diminishing returns for your money. And this app has become one of them. Lots of apps out there think they are worth more than what they actually are. When it comes to the weather/radar game there are literally hundreds of apps. You have to do something very special to separate yourself. And in my opinion this app does not. In fact they want 2.99 per week. That just seems outrageous. I did learn you can buy it for a year for 9.99. So why was the other option the first thing I saw. You be the judge.

Even The Weather Channel app doesn’t have as many pop-up ads! Dang. But the snow depth filter is pretty neat.

Scam alert! Billed multiple times for subscription !!!!
by Matt on BC on 2019/12/05 16:50
I sign up for the subscription and they billed me 2 to 3 times per month for the same subscription. I did not authorize multiple subscriptions. Even after I cancelled I was billed multiple times. Don’t buy this scam of an app. Prepare for a headache trying to sort this out.
I want my money back!
by Tex979 on 2019/12/05 15:41
I paid for the subscription as now all I get is ads for upgrade and tons of full page ads wanting me to by other apps. This this not software. It is spamware. The worst I have ever seen.
Most Deceptive App Ever
by worstdecisionever on 2019/12/05 13:26
Most people only need a weather update for a special occasion. So they download the app, and forget for a couple weeks they have it downloaded. Only to find out that this app already made you agree to paying them $12/month! Take my word for it - TAKE YOUR TIME SOMEWHERE ELSE! It will save you a lot of money.
Personal weather man
by Charles Lee Poplar on 2019/12/04 20:06

Deceptive
by asdecgbh on 2019/12/03 18:23
This is a subscription with recurring charges that were not evident to me on subscribing. I take responsibility but can say if I was aware I wouldn’t have purchased so I regard the design and execution as deceptive at best
Auto subscribed to $5 a month
by auznaindkakfines on 2019/12/02 14:00
This garbage tries to auto subscribe you to $5 a month for weather, which is available for free from 100 different places. Garbage
Ads make it unusable

Features seem good but ads are too frequent, are intrusive, and at times downright deceptive. Will be trying others apps

Not Free
by Schagb on 2019/12/02 00:02
So I download this app only to find out you have the ‘privilege‼️’ to subscribe and cancel a month at a time to avoid the fee. Forget about it, I have other free weather apps.. Weather Underground and Storm Radar, just hoping to add a NOAA app 😤
Temperature wrong
by ThisIsATestOfTheNicknameSystem on 2019/12/01 18:46
Future temp forecast is wrong almost all the time, by a significant margin. Very unfortunate.
Did not want to pay
by Draco5150! on 2019/12/01 16:28
I tried the app and didn’t really get a use out of it. Got a message from my credit card that I got charged $2.99 for a subscription I didn’t know I had, I canceled it and found out I won’t be refunded for something I’m not even using, this is ridiculous.
Wrong town
by asdssdadxsdd on 2019/11/30 02:51
Not useful when I am sitting in a thunderstorm and the radar is showing me a city 4 hours away.
Weather Rafar
by azsunbum on 2019/11/29 19:08
I use this app to stay informed of incliment changes. It's a very handy app to have. It's easy to navigate to see a specific city, state or country's local radar weather. Customise your settings to and go. Give it a try. Lisa

Greatest app ever!
by L C J 2000 on 2019/11/27 21:39
I gave an honest review of this app and then had Apple harassing me for my one star review. I don’t need the hassle so here’s my updated review. This app will undoubtably change save and better lives! It is accurate to beyond all human comprehension! If you don’t have this app you are a weather denier!
When good apps go bad
by Pendragon2875 on 2019/11/27 10:07
I’m a fan of this app until after having it for 10 years with full functions, they desire to charge a user monthly fee. I understood if the added more functionality or a video service for your area but to chop it up and start charging, it is disrespectful to those who by word of mouth recommended the app. I’m just disappointed and will be looking for another app.
Loved the app until today
by Quinnie70 on 2019/11/26 19:42

Wayyyy Overpriced!!
by Keeping It Real Y'all on 2019/11/25 10:25
NOAA provides free detailed and accurate weather on its website. NOAA is a government agency funded by our tax dollars. Why would I pay this developer $4.99 a month for NOAA weather reports and radar that I can get for free directly from NOAA?
Blank screen

Needs design work
by Purchaser000 on 2019/11/19 17:54
This app shows pretty radar images, but two key areas are problematic: 1. The timeline is critical to interact with in order to see the specifics of all radar data. It's got a TINY scrubber handle at the very top of the viewport (the most awkward place possible to reach w one hand). Also the scale of the timeline itself is constantly shifting. In other words, where the present moment is on the timeline is totally ambiguous, and shifts based on map type. You can't quickly tell if you're looking at the present or the past, and all of this changes based on the map type you have selected. 2. There is no indicator that data has yet to be loaded for a moment in time. This is highly misleading; is the radar clear, or is information still loading and about to pop in? There's no reason not to have a loading indicator, especially for people in remote areas with limited data connectivity. Without it, you're essentially presenting incorrect weather.
Conflict of interest
by AzCat1762 on 2019/11/19 14:12
NOAA is ours and should be a free service. It should not be used to drive business to the weather channel.

Pd $19.99 But Does NOT have AK radar!!
by msrevie on 2019/11/12 17:53
The app makes no mention if not providing any radar for Alaska except for tiny area near WA, even though it correctly marked my location, but it gladly took my money!
Typical of a Trump Associate Product
by cheeterah on 2019/11/12 14:50

Duh
by Mailmon on 2019/11/10 16:09
Don’t need a rectangle with my city name that overlays most of the area I’m looking at; suggest you make it a display option or, if that’s too complex, then a simple dot! If such an option already exists, I am hard pressed to find it.
It’s ok
by Jonathan Rooney on 2019/11/10 00:42
It’s ok but you have to pay to get more information and it didn’t tell snow amounts
Great App
by Tudie54 on 2019/11/09 05:38
I think I use the NOAA Radar App more often than most people. We live in Hawaii, and our Island is known for frequent rains and Hurricane landings. I don’t understand the writers on past reviews, saying “it’s not free” or “doesn’t work at all”. I’ve used this Free, very user friendly app, with all information and radar viewing in my opinion is Excellent. They even send me e-mails, to confirm what their radar is showing. They have been 100% accurate in telling me what’s coming at us. We live 1 mile from the Pacific Ocean, so we are notified often a storm, hurricane watch, or tsunami is a threat. NOAA App, THANK YOU!!🌤⛈🌙☂️🌊🌈
Just downloaded
by Dr lupini on 2019/11/07 23:39
Since I trust NOAA I downloaded this a few minutes ago. I cannot figure out what the 54 is showing on my app. I know it isn’t current temp as that is 36 now. Any suggestions!

NOAA weather pro .....no
by 73-43 on 2019/11/07 13:25
I was thinking of getting the pro version when I noticed A simple thing you got wrong. Cyclones or typhoons are cyclonic, which are LEFT turning weather feature. On your intro to pro that tracks them actively you have the icon turning to the right against even the icon indicators of LEFT turning which is the direction of spin of cyclones and as shown by the indicators on the icon image. If you can not get this right what else is flawed.
Fascinating
by Dotisophistique on 2019/11/07 10:47
Prior imaging studies are no comparison. Perfect for the pocket, enormously detailed. I can’t compare it to any forecasting app yet. Vibrant map design and colors, legible text.
NOAA Weather
by Maddog1963 on 2019/11/07 07:27
It is very good app and helpful. I love the Radar reports
Extremely restrictive
by Notapaidreviewer on 2019/11/06 09:27
Radar is effectively useless. There's a bug that won't show the radar unless you use the present (now) time slider and slide it to the right to see the current radar even though the slider says the radar position in the future. Most of the worthwhile features require the premium version. Paying for a mobile weather app is absurd in my opinion. However, paying for a desktop version would be justified.
Don’t recommend!!😐
by Sawyer Stockton on 2019/11/05 13:29
The app is ok, I can’t find how to send weather. It is snowing and raining here in Rochelle Illinois! They don’t have that on the radar. I do not recommend this app
USVI
by catcha later on 2019/11/05 01:09
Doesn’t work well in USVI area, in the upper states I’ll hope to be able to rate 4+ as the weather there is more predictable.

Beware of free and inability to cancel
by Kjhfdshk on 2019/11/02 01:50
Like many others who have reported here, there is a “free” trial and then you automatically get charged weekly and sometimes more than weekly $2.99. Good luck trying to cancel the subscription that you didn’t authorize. When you go to your subscriptions, you’ll see the NOAA app (which is also misleading) and no active subscription and no ability to cancel the subscription either because technically you don’t have one. However, you’ll keep getting charged $2.99 randomly. I’ve contacted Apple Support and will fight these charges until all are removed.
Poor service
by Sheila Gates on 2019/11/01 11:28
Charges my Apple account everytime I use the app instead of monthly.
What happened to free?
by Chewiesmom5 on 2019/11/01 01:55
I cannot pass the sign up for the paid version. Shouldn’t this be free?

This is one of my fave apps it does exactly what I want from an app.
Good info

Sometimes a picture truly is worth a thousand words.Accurate -up to date- weather radar images with colorations for precipitation ID really simplify seeing what’s coming your way.Thanks ,National Weather Service.

Bad app
by Headnuts on 2019/10/27 15:43
This app is riddled with full screen pop ups that trick you into a subscription and charges you weekly. It’s scamming users into a subscription. Be aware of this sketchy app.
As others note, a scam
by tsannes on 2019/10/27 15:14
This app has the worst built in charges of any app I’ve downloaded. Even after deleting this mediocre app. DO NOT DOWNLOAD unless you’re ready for $2.99/week charge (seriously, how would this be a reasonable charge for radar app??)
Awful

Terrible app

Since I downloaded ios13, my app hasn’t opened. It just shows a black screen. This has been going on for several weeks.
Crap

Stop with the ads but a great tool
by ThisNickNameIsTaken?LOL on 2019/10/26 01:38
Yeah. Too many ads. Stop asking me to upgrade to premium. The weather is not that important to me.
Not Free. Not Goernment.
by (jk) on 2019/10/26 00:32
App wants to “share” my location. (Sell me to advertisers). Looks free but I couldn’t make it work without signing up for a paid subscription (7 days free then it starts charging every month). Nope. No thank you. Deleted without ever seeing one weather map or report.
Garbage

NOAA WEATHER
by Psych Nurse 1 on 2019/10/25 15:09
NOAA’s weather information is always accurate and up to the minute. I also like your format. It is simple, easy to use and gives me the information I need in order to plan my day. Thank you.
Keep looking
by jnrnhrsddfu on 2019/10/25 01:29
There are a lot of weather radar apps. This is... one of them. You will be pressured tirelessly into buying premium. Mostly unusable due to full screen ads interrupting you and premium features not being grayed out—any time you skip up and forget what you’re allowed to use, you’re greeted with a screen begging you for money. Pretty rough UX. No wonder they’re spending money on ads.
Shady!
by Fantastish!! on 2019/10/24 22:21
The app should let you know that a weekly subscription is required ti use the app BEFORE you download it. Delete!

How do I cancel this. I don’t use it.
Cool source
by Omer dokee on 2019/10/24 15:02
This is my go to weather app because it is legitimate source material. But honestly, it’s not really user friendly. I’m sorry that I can’t make a recommendation to make it better, but it can most certainly be made better.
Terriable forcasts
by laxkid7 on 2019/10/24 10:47
Im taking meteorology classes right now and my professor and i look at the forecasts(because i show him since tis apps forecasts don't make sense) and he agrees he has no clue who would hire someone who makes god awful forecasts. Even if its not them making it they should still be able to use common meteorology sense and realize that its not a good forecast. So with that said this app is only good for the radar. Forecast are never accurate. Id love to see the % of how many days they actually forecast correct. Bet its a sorry little number. Also my professor is now making sure no one in my lecture hall uses this app. Thats how inaccurate they are.

Watch out for monthly/weekly subscription
by KChicogs on 2019/10/22 11:56
App is decent but tricks you into a 2.99 weekly subscription.
Great tool
by Fun one 11821 on 2019/10/21 15:53
This is great to have no matter if you are home or traveling. You can see where the weather is and see where is is going. Use it all the time!
Nope
by Brewsparks on 2019/10/21 11:57
As soon as you open the app for the first time they hit you with a deceptive pop up that makes it look like you have to agree to a seven day trial with an automatic subscription. You can X out of the screen, but have to deal with full screen adds. The Radar data is the same as every other weather app, not worth it.

Recent changes?
by KaseyWolff on 2019/10/21 06:03
Last few times I try review weather alerts it would prompt me to go premium and start a free trial. When I went back to the maps after declining my maps were blank. I thought it was just a glitch but it has consistently happened. Had a severe weather alert, checked, once again prompting to go premium. Accuweather and Local news apps showed data, noaa blank. I don’t mind ads much but withholding info just doesn’t help.
Why do we have to pay

Grayson county, tax, is under severe thunderstorm warning and tornado watch. Yet nothing on your radar. Why am I paying for this? Its already on Wunderground
Total fail after update
by Monkey78987 on 2019/10/21 00:36
Updated today after using this app for a long time. Now app won’t show the fast moving that tv and desktops are showing moving into my area. That’s a fail. Basic failure. Time to find a new app
Great info. Especially with storms predicted.

Doesn’t work since IOS update

Used to love this app, now it’s junk. Only get a black screen since the IOS update. Irritating because we paid for the Premium version.
Not free. 7 day trial

Technically not free. After 7 days they begin charging 3$ week.

App review
by Qignacio on 2019/10/18 20:07
The app was great while it worked, it stopped forking for me a few months back, I emailed the team got a quick response and it started working before anything. It hasn’t worked again for weeks and still waiting for it, paid and can’t use it. If they get it up and running I would rate it 5 stars.
Good information, but ads
by alanroberts91 on 2019/10/17 16:30
I don’t mind the ads at the bottom of the screen, but I wish there wasn’t any pop up ads.
Junk
by TJ7097 on 2019/10/17 16:24
Didn’t work well when it was free. Now just a black screen on iPhone X. I also have an iPhone 6s and it’s no longer free. Deleting app from all phones and going with a free app that actually works. Junk!!
Cancelling app
by dmd1658 on 2019/10/17 14:01
I can’t find the auto renew anywhere in the app to cancel.
Really like but needs 1 improvement.
by J's Revolution on 2018/10/11 18:21
This app works well. To bad most people can’t read well enough to see that the trial and pricing issue are ‘user’ based and have nothing to do with bad or misleading practices, sheesh, slow down and read, actually read. My one suggested change is to go with a different map service. I like Mapbox myself. I want more detail when I zoom out and Mapbox provides this. If I compare this app to the map service in my current weather app Storm from TWC, they use Mapbox, much greater detail when zoomed out on the same regions. Other than this issue, which hopefully you’ll consider, I’m looking forward to making this my full time weather app! Plus, the yearly fee of $9.99 which can be chosen during the trial, feels great. Reading AND understanding will carry you far ;)
Love This App
by LauraAnn7691 on 2018/01/11 17:13
Love it b/c it let’s me look at the weather in other cities before I finalize my travel plans so I will know what the weather will be where I’m going and the outlook for several days which makes it easy to make decisions to still go or postpone due to possible bad weather forecasted. For example I was planning a trip to the Mountain here in Asheville, North Carolina and found that the weather was not going to be in my favor due to snow. First, I’m disabled and can’t take chances on being stuck somewhere I’m not able to get back home cause they shut down the highway when bad weather comes. Second, where I currently reside in North Carolina we get plenty of bad weather from snow, sleet, freezing rain and blizzard (due to nor Easters). I don’t take chances at home so why would I want to take chances somewhere else. I can’t take a risk of falling b/c of several medical issues that restrict my ability to get around (both knees been replaced and currently waiting on date for lower spine surgery) along with several other medical issues that restrict my ability to just go and take unnecessary chances. This app helps me make smart decisions that will best help me protect my health. Love it. It’s a 5 Star App. Highly Recommend you get it if you don’t already have it.
Better than the full website for fast information
by Mikeane1 on 2019/08/15 09:46
I have used the ‘full’ NOAA website for three decades to track hurricanes and watch for local bad weather. I have not used the app for hurricanes, yet, but the local maps for the radar loop are problematic, even with internet service, on the iPhone. They are almost useless for accurate local data on tornadoes (still great for tracking larger storms and rapidly moving fronts) due to data limits, particularly heavy local cell system usage during tornadoes. This app trims links to the massive database at NOAA for the power of a shorter ‘history’ (4 passed tracks to 7 on the full website, or 35-40 minutes instead of 70 minutes), but the ‘loss’ of tracking information is minor and FAST current data is more useful during sudden weather and for driving. It was invaluable during a recent trip to New Orleans to time leave times and plan stops to avoid pop up thunderstorms. Nothing but good things found with app over NOAA main website and local news weather apps (lots of adds with the ‘locals’ and websites are problematic to find using iPhone when traveling).
BUYER BEWARE Terrible - Bait and Switch - Not Free - Deceptive
by Emilee3 on 2019/09/02 02:27
It says it’s free in the App Store, but then you can’t even open the App until you sign up for a paid subscription. Really shady considering I think many people come to the app looking to track hurricanes that may threaten their lives and the makers of this app are trying to take advantage of them. Just do the right thing and list that it has a cost up front. It does have a ONE WEEK free trial option but that is linked to auto renew in 1 WEEK at $2.99 PER WEEK and I think the free trial doesn’t even include SHOWING the hurricanes anywhere, you would need to purchase the PREMIUM subscription for that, but you don’t find out any of that until after you sign up for auto renew. Also BUYER BEWARE, if you decide not to get the free trial and you leave the app, but then go back later thinking fine, I’ll just do the one week trial and remember to cancel in one week if the app is not good, the RATE HAS CHANGED to a 3 DAY TRIAL that auto renews in 3 DAYS and NOW AT $3.99 A WEEK! Super shady and sneaky. Most deceptive app I’ve ever come across. Seems like these people are trying to take advantage of people afraid of an impending potentially tragic hurricane and seems exactly like a form of price gouging, and just low low low business tactics. It’s incredibly shameful.
App tricks you into paying upfront
by santiagoqr1 on 2018/09/22 15:31
Downloaded the app, authorized the download with my fingerprint, then opened the app and was immediately prompted by another screen asking for my fingerprint, right after I said that I didn’t want to pay, that I just wanted the free version, they don’t clarify that the free version is 7 days free, and after that is paid. When it prompted me the second time for my fingerprint, I never thought I’d be paying a week later, since I selected the free version. I know they’re going to say “but it says on the screen that it’s not free” thing is, they use smaller fonts and on the bottom, making it deceiving and impossible to see at first glance. Also, NOAA is a government agency, pretty much the “Weather Bureau” (as you used to be called) you’re funded by taxes, literally “for the people by the people”, why do you charge people for an app, that only mirrors something that it’s already paid for with tax dollars, I know there’s app developers and support and everything, but the department doesn’t live off these payments through the AppStore, your department has an anual budget, so why, WHY, why charge people for something that’s already paid for, AND SUCH AN OUTRAGEOUS AMOUNT!?
Weather channel 5* beats this apps Full-screen pop-ads,
by Sundaeluv on 2018/03/23 12:45
This would be a 5 star app if it werent for full screen ads that come up in seconds after opening. And weather details that slide open/closed/open/closed so cant read the forecast! Weather Channel app opens to beautiful scene, gives forecast and if scroll we can see radar, week ahead, etc. Sorry developers, you still after all these months cant get this NOAA app to function well. Instead of creatively having ads within the app page the pop-up ads cover full screen, often X to close ad is hidden, cant get ad to close. After getting to page the weather report that pops out of the right side goes away before you can read it, weather is gone and wont come back until you keep clicking, dragging etc. or close app and open again, but then you get another page covering ad again. Shame the app developers dont know how to build an app that has ads creatively in them like so many other apps. Deleted this again, I love the Weather channel app SO much better!
Severe Weather App Review
by Mr. Cochroach on 2017/09/23 23:44
Being in Puerto Rico, it is necessary to have a severe weather app for the voracious Atlantic hurricane season. With the recent hurricanes Irma and Maria, this app had to be in handy. However, this app is full of ads that pop up. Usually I close them, but this time around when hurricane Maria was closing in on the island, I left the app running continuously, while watching the dark clouds and squally weather coming off of the Caribbean. Little did I know, an advertisement popped up while I was gone. I came back a few hours later to find that the phone was acting up. I got the notice that a virus had been encrypted into the phone. The awful advertisement opened by itself and virused my phone. Little did I know that the eyewall was an hour away and my pet bird was outside. I had no way of knowing because of the viral malware, and the winds picked up to 130 before I knew it and my bird was gone. Please find a way to filter these malicious ads out of your application, because this situation was completely unwarrented.
Another subscription radar/weather app
by nxcoco on 2017/12/17 14:05
Who are the weather app developers? They must be those kind of people who think so much that they cannot really get anything right. This app just became more and more terrible. The radar alone is so dumb. It projects to the next day so while you think you are watching current weather conditions. You are actually watching radar data that may or may not happen. It makes the simple act of looking at a radar so confusing and dumb. It’s also full of ads unless you buy the subscription. Please help deter this disturbing trend by not buying this app and rating it low. In a few years they will have us paying 40 dollars a year for weather forecasts. This is how it starts. I'd rather pay up front and be done with it. I’m about to give up on radar apps. I wish someone would make and app that’s a current radar with the ability to put down pins. That’s it. They used to exist. There seems to be some sort of developer gold rush for subscription apps being done by idiots right now.
Needs design work
by Purchaser000 on 2019/11/19 17:54
This app shows pretty radar images, but two key areas are problematic: 1. The timeline is critical to interact with in order to see the specifics of all radar data. It's got a TINY scrubber handle at the very top of the viewport (the most awkward place possible to reach w one hand). Also the scale of the timeline itself is constantly shifting. In other words, where the present moment is on the timeline is totally ambiguous, and shifts based on map type. You can't quickly tell if you're looking at the present or the past, and all of this changes based on the map type you have selected. 2. There is no indicator that data has yet to be loaded for a moment in time. This is highly misleading; is the radar clear, or is information still loading and about to pop in? There's no reason not to have a loading indicator, especially for people in remote areas with limited data connectivity. Without it, you're essentially presenting incorrect weather.
Not a good start
by MrPete56 on 2018/07/22 15:35
I just downloaded this app because my old weather app just changed drastically for the worse. Reading these reviews makes me think the root data provider for all these types of apps just changed how it does business. That being said, I signed up for the one week free trial that will automatically renew after the free trial is over. When signing up, the price was stated as nine dollars and change a year. What they don’t tell you is that is only one of three options. Nine something a year, four something per quarter and three dollars a week. Guess which “plan” you are automatically renewed to? The three dollars a week. If you aren’t paying attention, you will have spent the price of a year subscription in under a month. This information was hidden in the entire sign up process. I wouldn’t have bothered to look if Apple hadn’t sent me an eMail spelling out the terms. I think there must be quite a few complaints for Apple to do that.
NOAA app for my iPhone is okay
by Ranchitaa on 2019/04/07 12:52
This app could use a little bit of an upgrade. The weather “alert” app is not working since I rely heavily for the alert for thunderstorms and flooding. We have cattle and we have a creek. We can loose some of our cattle if our creek gets flooded. So I’m constantly looking at the weather to be prepared to move cattle when we need to. But, the alert would be very helpful and would be less stressful for me since I’m too busy to keep watching for the weather..... 😑 However, I dislike the fact that there is another weather app you can purchase for $4.99 a month just to know where the lightning strikes are at, when I already have the NOAA app. I wouldn’t mind paying $0.99 a month for the extra’s not $4.99.
Just what I was looking for
by TR904 on 2018/12/22 13:10
Update: Another option I’d like to have is the ability to turn on alerts but turn on/off alert overlays on the map. This app presents all the information I’m looking for in a simple layout. With other apps radar is secondary, this app makes it primary but very easy to then get detailed weather info. Here are two improvements I’d recommend. Add selectable zoom levels for the radar at launch. The current setting is too focused and I have to zoom out to see the bigger picture. Maybe 50, 100, 300 miles out from location. Second I’d like the sunrise/sunset to be “smart”. After sunset display the sunrise time. After sunrise display the sunset time. No need for separate icons. Thanks for a great weather app!
This app has become a big mess.
by Twentdoggo on 2017/07/12 17:21
So, apparently this app now has a subscription you can subscribe to when they have an already one time pay premium app. Why? Why would you do this? Are you getting rid of the premium app? If so, why? There was nothing wrong with that app. This just makes the whole NOAA Weather Radar apps a whole mess. Also, this app claims to be the only app to show all NWS service alerts and warnings on the radar. I'm pretty sure MyRadar, Storm, and many other apps show alerts like this, and show more alerts than what this app shows. I was really debating weather to shell out and buy the premium app, but these reasons make me not want to. Updates come in every 3-6 months and the developers apparently don't really care about the consumer. You guys really have made a bad first impression with me. This app doesn't deserve the stars it already has.
This is not a free app
by dasprague on 2018/06/19 00:44
I downloaded this and when I opened it the first time, it asked me to turn on location services. I said no. The next thing that pops up is asking me to turn on location services. I again say no. The next pop-up tells me this is a 7 day trial and you the have to buy the app. Mind you, I still haven’t gotten into the app. That’s when I deleted it. Developers: you should just charge for the app up front, since it’s not really free. Get rid of the ads. You also need to drop the push to turn on location services. If I have them off, it’s because I know what they do, and if you think by asking a second time in a different way that you will get a different answer, you’re just wasting my time and making me extremely skeptical about what you use that data for and what else is hidden in the app. At best, this is deceptive advertising. At worst.... That could go too many ways, and all are nefarious.
Very good, but slow to update and dodgy on temps
by fredr1c on 2019/06/28 01:19
This app does everything it says it will do. However I’ve had a couple of occasions where the app’s temperature readings both current and predicted don’t agree with other sources for the same location or my own thermometer. These disagreements are wide in scope and long in duration — 7 - 10 degrees high or low, and they can last several days or more. So I can’t trust it for vacation planning, for example, without a double-check — something I learned by experience. It’s off by 7 degrees right now for my home location. For alerts, it will leave old expired alerts in place on the map even as it talks about new alerts elsewhere. So while it works very well and I’m a monthly subscriber I cannot recommend this app wholeheartedly until NOAA fixes these issues.
Charge after deletion
by Hal3th on 2018/10/16 14:22
I downloaded this application for one day. It’s an ok weather application. I subsequently decided to delete it as I felt I didn’t need it for a subscription of 3 dollars a week. However, even after deletion I was charged 7 times. It took me a while to realize this was the case since I live abroad and don’t use my home country’s bank account that often. So a warning that this application automatically signs you up for subscription during your free trial. It does warn you of this. However, even though you may delete the app and never look at it again, they will charge you unless you log into iTunes and look at your subscription list. This seems unreasonable if you aren’t using the application. TL;DR application will still charge you if you delete it before free trial is over. You need to go on your computer to cancel the automatic subscription even during the free trial period.
Siri shortcut doesn’t work
by 194922 on 2019/05/25 11:52
I really like this app, but I have 3 locations saved. (Toledo Ohio Brandon Florida and Ruskin Florida ) l recorded on Siri shortcuts, (show radar for Brandon,Florida) but when I ask Siri to show me the radar for Brandon, Florida, it always goes to the Toledo forecast and only gives me a verbal forecast. It won’t bring anything up from the NOAA Radar app at all. Nothing that I do, will get Siri to bring up what I want. I have a similar weather app and that one works fine, but your app is better and the one that I would like to use. But if I can’t get it to work, then I’ll have to stay with the app that works. I hope that you can fix the issue with the app and that I can use it with my Siri shortcuts.
ALL about the up-sell
by AppFzx on 2018/11/19 13:47
Going to be honest, I deleted this before I really got into it. I have MyRadar which I paid for and love but its info is sometimes delayed so I thought hey, why not get the info straight from the source! Before I could even use the NOAA app though, I was accosted by pop-up modal advertisements (can’t continue until you feign excitement and click something,) one of which was an option to pay to stop the advertisements. No, you can’t sell me mafia style “protection” from your ads because I have options. No, I don’t want to upgrade, you haven’t even shown me you can do anything yet. I paid to upgrade MyRadar long ago because they first proved themselves and then offered me more features with an upgrade. I may pay to upgrade it further because there are things they’re adding that look interesting but this app is a completely different model. Not ‘buying’ it.
Consistently Inaccurate
by Jbasangel on 2018/10/14 11:29
I don’t know why people say it isn’t free. Minus a few features I have yet to pay for general rain information. Although it gives a general idea of the weather with some accuracy, it consistently is off by several hundred miles. What I mean is that it will predict my town as being in the middle of a storm with heavy rain fall when in reality the system passes several hours south of us and we may see some overcast but no rain at all. On occasion it will be almost right with its forecast but for the most part it is what I call “3 star iffy.” But definitely free minus a few features and ads aren’t so frustrating. Just close them and then view the weather....the slightly inna irate but generally ok prediction of the weather.
Why does my location show the wrong city now?
by Really??123987 on 2018/11/04 17:08
This is my favorite weather app. I have a few because my little town is kind of a microcosm by itself so I take the best 3 out of 5. This app used to be super accurate, even showing my house temp at pinpoint location when it was different than town. However, within the last month or so it started showing Aurora instead of Bennett for the house location. I don’t care about Aurora’s weather. Tried to reinstall but still Aurora at my house and Bennett as the town location. Had to delete it finally and get a different app. Maybe I did something to make that happen but can’t figure out what. I already miss it 😞.
Decent, but pop ups prevent data loads
by Phynn on 2017/07/16 04:17
It is a pretty decent app, intuitive and easy to use. But it's only four stars because it seems like you get mor pop ups than weather info. Have a tornado warning? They'll let you know after you have to click through a pop up ad and two subsequent screens about various other apps. Also, the pop ups prevent the app data from updating. So it will still read data and radar from three hours ago, unless I force quit the app. With this many pop ups, I just don't want to pay them monthly subscription fees. They probably make much more off the constant ads.
What worse can be said
by HawaiiMaui on 2019/05/27 00:55
The hybrid map feature was neat, showing us Disney World real land layouts and weather. Any app with full screen ads just aren't worth it, unless it's once per day, this is showing ads for its own upgrade (which is a SUBSCRIPTION?! really, just charge once, I know weather data can be pricey but let's stop this loop of paying media companies for jacked up rates. Also cover the costs over time like every dev used to do instead of subscriptions.) In the end we used it for FL radar which can't be predicted, rain is guaranteed every day around 3-5pm, like the central regions of USA so it was only good for showing 5min delayed radar that it might be raining over top of you. Also customizable alerts are needed in all weather apps. Something like "Flood Warning" is worthless here, can't turn off just one category so disabled all notifications.
MyRadar app is above and beyond this
by Tbird1757 on 2018/08/20 12:33
We wanted an application that would warn us of severe storms in our area and we thought this was the application for us, particularly based on the sheer quantity of reviews shown, we were wrong. The application is trying very hard to be software as a service with a subscription-based system. It is certainly not worth the money as you cannot even customize some of the most basic features in the program. We live in a landlocked state here in the US, and we cannot even turn off the hurricane tracking alerts. While some people in those states may find those alerts very useful, since the hurricanes never reach us as far as Missouri the alerts are irrelevant and unnecessary. There should be an option to simply turn off the hurricane alert since that is one of the big selling point of this software as a service. It feels like they are just throwing features at the wall to see what sticks so they can justify their price of $10 a year. Have had this for three months until we got tired of the hurricane alerts waking us up in the morning. Finally decided to look for another app and found one in my radar. So we are eating the $10 for this app and moving on and not looking back.
Awesome NOT!!!

Ads used to run at the screen bottom in a narrow banner. Now it throws full-screen ads that often force your click! I took this app off my phone!!!!!!!!! IN RESPONSE TO THE DEVELOPER RESPONSE: Thank you for stating what is obvious -you just wasted "ink" and time for no good reason. I was not unaware that there is a"premium subscription" that gets rid of the ads. The problem lies in how the ads are now run with COMPLETE OBNOXIOUSNESS! I don't oppose ads in general when they are run as they used to be run on your app. The problem is that now they blow up full screen, instead of running discreetly on a banner at the bottom of the screen- which left me free to either continue checking my weather uninterrupted or clicking on an ad that truly caught my attention. It's a cheap way to force the clicks and you just lost a consumer who was loyal in the past. And after reading other current reviews that offer comparisons between what you offer and what other apps offer(Storm, for example), I see I'm making an appropriate choice. You must be getting paid per click. Why else would you ruin a perfectly good app with this style of ads display. You've gotten greedy. Tsk tsk tsk. Too bad. I believe you'll lose more customers than you'll gain.
Ads a necessity, some too obnoxious
by Qka on 2018/08/23 22:13
The ads are generally a banner at the bottom, barely obtrusive. Some insist on taking a whole screen and have to be dismissed. The worst, thankfully few, automatically launch themselves in Safari, so you have to close their tab and return to the app. The app itself is useful and is everything you need in a radar app. Covers the Continental US, Hawaii, and the more populaed parts of Alaska. Also the more populated parts of Canada. Does cover some other countries - what is probably a function of what is available and not an otherwise deliberate omission on the part of the developers.
Wonderful!
by Living ON Earth on 2019/09/06 21:37
Your app is just about as useless as the rest of em. Don’t understand why you even show radar, forecast, OR even current status. They’re NEVER even close. I know you don’t have the ability for real time but you can’t even correctly tell what it did 10 minutes or an hour or 25 hours ago. My 9 year old niece can draw it with a crayon more accurately. Anyone can do better with a wild guess or just “spin that wheel” or throw a dart while blind folded or any which way I want. The only thing I like about your app is the bright colored icon. Oh boy! Just give up and close the doors if you can’t do any better. I wouldn’t trust it now for the time, let alone weather. AND it can’t get within 100 yards of my location. I’d hate it if someone was counting on this app for a rescue. They’d have a long wait or die. Sheeesh! You blew it...
Weather forecast are better than local
by Bump. In the road on 2019/03/02 03:19
This has been a wonderful help for living in the Country. Thanks for the great information. And if you ever need an eye in the sky I’m a storm chaser. Did work for 2 local weather stations but didn’t pay well enough for even my expenses. If you need someone in this area 25 miles W. OF Wichita KANSAS. ANYWAY YOU PROVIDE GOOD INFO SOON ENOUGH TO BE READY. I’ve been in 5 Tornados including the one that went through McConell Air Force Base and then hit Andover KS. just some info , I decided to find them before they found me. You all are great and thanks for the important updates. Keep up the great work!
Too annoying to be useful
by Richard1252 on 2017/09/10 13:10
I'm sure this app offers a lot. But in the first few minutes of use it froze twice, necessitating shutdown and restart. It constantly bombards me with ads and popups—unacceptable when trying to access urgent weather information. The developers responded to a similar criticism by saying one can eliminate the ads by getting the paid version. My question to them is, why would I consider giving them money when the trial version is so buggy? I made the decision to delete it when one popup opened a browser window displaying a virus alert. I don't know whether a virus is even possible on an iPhone, but the idea that an app in the Apple Store could be susceptible to malware is my limit. I advise you not to waste your time.
Great App
by Tudie54 on 2019/11/09 05:38
I think I use the NOAA Radar App more often than most people. We live in Hawaii, and our Island is known for frequent rains and Hurricane landings. I don’t understand the writers on past reviews, saying “it’s not free” or “doesn’t work at all”. I’ve used this Free, very user friendly app, with all information and radar viewing in my opinion is Excellent. They even send me e-mails, to confirm what their radar is showing. They have been 100% accurate in telling me what’s coming at us. We live 1 mile from the Pacific Ocean, so we are notified often a storm, hurricane watch, or tsunami is a threat. NOAA App, THANK YOU!!🌤⛈🌙☂️🌊🌈
It’s okay, but there are better apps that are free
by Tracemo on 2019/08/26 03:18
I got this and decided to try it out in comparison to another weather app (weather 9). I didn’t see much of a difference until today. I open NOAA app to check out a potential hurricane brewing in the Caribbean. On the radar it didn’t show it. It did show it when I had to switch over to cloud coverage. The Hurricane tracking feature costs extra, as well as other features. I switched over to Weather 9 app and it showed the hurricane tracking for free without me having to turn the feature on. And that is what sealed the deal for me. I am now deleting NOAA’s app and will use Weather 9 for my primary storm tracking from my phone.

Little Boxes
by weatherido on 2019/08/11 18:12
I really like the app and use it multiple times a day. The only thing that bothers me are the two white “boxes” on the upper right hand side of the screen. I assume those would have something showing in them if I had the upgraded version. I find them to be quite annoying as they block off part of the screen. Please consider removing them for those of us who don’t want the upgraded version. Even if I had the other version I would still consider them very annoying.
Timeless Weather
by EagleMaster1245 on 2017/09/20 06:37
If you are on the go, wether it between two cities in a single state or cross country it scan and change your mind if to continue or stop for the night, and last but not least it could change your mind to just go back and try another day. In a recent trip I had complete half my trip and ran straight in to just the remnants of "Harvey". I was not given a choice but to stop in a place I would not wish my enemy. At least I had a roof over my head. However no lights, no water, and no air conditioner that worked.

I don’t know what I would do without the NOAA, Weather alert! My Wife and I as well as my Three sons always listen to this Application, to hear what’s going on in the area! For example when there are Tornado Warnings we know to hope for the best, but prepare for the Worst❗️ I fully recommend this Application to everyone who wants themselves and there Families to be Safe when a bad Weather alert comes in! I whole heartedly believe that everyone should have this Application and learn how to read it and use it for the best and most thorough Weather for there families
Falls short in border area (San Diego)
by Kimjamul on 2018/08/07 15:01
NOAA Weather has always been my go-to resource. But in a critical area, this falls very short. It does not allow the user to choose the animation (past vs forecasted). I live in the border area (San Diego) and the radar display stops at the border. Much of our weather originates south of the border, where 1) no radar display is shown and 2) the “Rain” overlay is “forecast” ONLY. I upgraded to the paid app hoping I would be able to see past-hour animation of monsoonal rains buildup (not just a forecast). Alas, I am still stuck with only a rain forecast—highly unreliable in our neck of the woods— and radar display that stops at the border. So sadly I’ll rely on other apps and discontinue my paid subscription. :-(
BEST WEATHER AP EVER
by Danny789! on 2018/06/23 05:44
This is the best and most trusted weather ap I know of hands down! My daughter is studying to become a meteorologist and this ap has everything needed for her to watch the weather 24/7. Long story short it well worth the pro 9.99 yr. sirens were going off in my town and my daughter just watched the weather pointing out where the circulation was and we did not have to leave in the storm to go to shelter. If you want the best up to the moment weather ap look no further you found all you need right here. Thank you radar pro!
Exploitative pricing scheme. $156 per year!
by L,.& on 2018/11/28 19:14
I downloaded this app about a month ago and just noticed that it’s been charging me $3/week. I think when I first got it I must have signed up for a free 7-day trial, and then it opts you in to weekly billing. I’m sorry but $3/week is $156 per year, which is absurd. They’re clearly hoping you just won’t notice this small charge and you’ll go along with it. If you sign up for the one year plan, it’s only $10/year, but I assume when you sign up for the free trial, it automatically puts you in weekly billing. You can see their dirty practices again with their 3 month price which works out to $24/year, 2.5x more than their yearly plan. Note also that none of this is displayed in the app when you’ve signed up. The only way to find it is to tap the “View” button which kicks you out to the iTunes store. If they were at least encouraging you to move to the yearly plan after a little while, I would have more sympathy but they’re clearly trying to hide it. Obviously it’s normal to give long-term customers somewhat lower pricing, but it’s not usually not a 2-15x multiplier!
Old Version was Better..
by Otka Werner on 2017/11/21 14:52
I used to check the old version all the time, due to it being easy to navigate and ran pretty quickly. However, the new update is slower and riddled with ads. There is a premium version, but why get that when it’s still going to be slow? And also, you have to get the premium version to get hurricane paths? Really?? I feel like you shouldn’t have to pay for that, as you didn’t have to pay for it before the big update. So to the developers, please give a little more availability to the user, and also (if you can) try to have a more reliable and faster running time.
Nope
by Booooooooooobbzzz on 2019/03/05 23:40
First off, way too many ads. It’s ridiculous. You can’t comfortably check the weather without having an advertisement pop up every couple of minutes, sometimes seconds. Secondly, why would I want to pay for a subscription? That’s just dumb. There are hundreds of weather apps, most notably MyRadar, that do not have a subscription service and are just as good, if not better, than this app. I don’t know what person would want to pay for a subscription to a weather app, but you need to be putting that monthly payment towards something more important. Do a quick app store search, you’ll find many others that work just as well and don’t charge you monthly. I would recommend MyRadar over this any day, sorry.
Purchased Premium years ago worked perfectly until recently
by VermilionScannerGuy on 2017/10/08 03:28
Up until recent the app reported in real time with forward cast perfectly. In the past few weeks, it is showing radar casts from 4 days in the past & at a different time! I tried uninstalling & reinstalling without any improvement. I had purchased this in a packaged deal along with 2 other weather apps. They both are functioning perfectly, this one has become totally useless. In that I live in Ohio on the Lake Erie coastline, lake effect weather can be nasty & until now this app helped to prepare when storms were moving in. Now, it's more effective to stand outside & use binoculars.
Life saver during Harvey
by redh894 on 2017/10/20 09:58
Regardless of all the negatives this app is wonderful. Very useful all the time but really was useful during Harvey. I happen to be out of state, but family was still at home in Houston I could keep my wife informed of what was coming her way. Example was a tornado 2 mile from the house was able to tell her to take cover. Much needed food an supply's was able to inform her of large breaks coming for her to get out to restock on food.. Keep up the good work & thank you... Houston Strong
Great
by KBW2181 on 2018/06/15 01:24
This app is great, simple as that. I only have one request, I’m a truck driver and I worry more about wind speed and storms than Fire so I wanted to know if you could give Wind speed it’s own notification tab because rite now it shares a tab with fire and while I’m on the road I get notifications all day about fire danger and I don’t want to turn it off because one of those notifications might be for hi winds lol so can you please separate wind and fire PLEASE??? Other than that everything is great Thank you.
The best for me
by Tandoran on 2019/03/13 11:53
This app provides detailed weather information all over north america and beyond. I have the premium and it’s well worth it. I’m learning much about weather patterns and can better anticipate what’s coming in my area as well as other areas I may travel to. I’m an old sailer and became fascinated years ago. The NOAA has developed and continues to develop the most innovative means of tracking and prediction of weather and its many events. I’ve followed the NOAA and it’s developments for years and am devoted.
Angry
by poopy pants magruff on 2018/09/13 13:19
The app worked most of the time but I always had to close out some little add that was in the way of me getting important weather reports. I understand that adds are a part of the free apps. operations. But These adds are getting out of control!! I received an alert on the app, opened it up and was greeted with ( not weather ) but a three question true or false quiz for a Walmart gift card. It couldn’t be buy passed or opted out or closed. So I could see the hurricane data. I deleted the app. Also when trying to submit my review I had to create a posting nick name and after 10 try’s I finally got one that wasn’t currently used ( including my own name ). Never bought anything from an app add

by dews kisses on 2018/06/28 22:06
When you and your family’s lives depend on seconds the information you receive in the right time is your life source I feel Noah weather gives you the right information in enough time to save lives Being able to depend on this sets your mind at ease and help you to overcome your fears of uncertainties you have during bad weather What comfortto know someone cares and is always available when these times arise Thank you for your services
Go to the source
by Gordonista on 2019/03/25 18:13
I was a regular AccuWeather user until I read that they get all of their information from the National Weather Service, claim they have better data, and sell app users personal information even those who have asked them not to. I do not want To support their inaccurate self congratulation and I don’t like companies that sell my data without my permission. I therefore am now going to the source of their information, the National Weather Service.

Rural Unfriendly?
by GreenVariety on 2019/07/23 14:43
I’m wondering if it’s because I’m rural but this app stinks! I just got rid of it because I had to have my husband come pick me up due to freezing rain turning the entire road into a skating rink. No notification. No weather warning in the app (just double checked). I don’t have cable and am not a weather channel watcher so I rely on my app to do its job. I just downloaded accuweathers app and sure enough warning right at the top for my location. Had I known an ice storm was coming in I would have altered my plans so I could have at least driven my car home (or not left at all and put myself, my husband and others in danger).
Price point is to high.
by Ssamick on 2018/09/15 13:50
I have started to see this with a lot of other apps. At some point we have gotten a lot of diminishing returns for your money. And this app has become one of them. Lots of apps out there think they are worth more than what they actually are. When it comes to the weather/radar game there are literally hundreds of apps. You have to do something very special to separate yourself. And in my opinion this app does not. In fact they want 2.99 per week. That just seems outrageous. I did learn you can buy it for a year for 9.99. So why was the other option the first thing I saw. You be the judge.
