App change
by P4ckers on 2021/01/22 16:08
With the new updates I find the app added changes for the week outlook more of a pain! The changes are more of a nuisance , very disappointed in these changes. As this was the only app that was easy to access without needing to click additional items for daily forecast! 😟
Excellent weather guide
by ragmin on 2021/01/22 13:08
Keeps everything up to date and gives you a clear view of what to expect.
Leave me alone already. You brought it on yourself
by glennlovesgolf on 2021/01/21 04:59
Last straw. Thought it would be cool as a weather tracker but the ads and popups to turn on location, to change settings drive me to delete as I am writing this review. Good bye
Too Early to Rate
by eBureaucrat on 2021/01/20 14:32
I’m being promoted to review within two minutes after starting to try to use the App. Thus far I've learned how to get prompted to convert to the paid version but have not learned how to get a forecast. I’ll give 4 stars since I still have hope that this App will be useful, perhaps only to see the current weather radar situation for my location.
Widget Broken Since November
by hubb321 on 2021/01/19 19:32
Overall it’s a useful weather app. I subscribed to the annual membership, however the widget function has been broken for months. Every update I think it’ll be resolved...but nothing

This app is great ween my power is out I can see what is happening in the next day so I prepared to turn my lights off and save it I love this app.
Wouldn't pay again.
by 179365348 on 2021/01/17 15:18
I bought the pro features and it seems to never be right any more. These issues started with in the last two weeks. A perfect example is that it's telling me that it won't snow till at the soonest noon today. Yet it's been snowing since about 9am. So I don't understand what happened. It used to be great. Not so anymore.
Only paid now

Privacy Question
by *Chelle*Belle* on 2021/01/15 16:44
This App states it collects User Content: Including subject line, sender, recipients, and contents of the email or message Why would you need this?? I pay yearly and find the app well worth the charge. But I will not pay to give an app my emails and text messages.

I’ve had this app for several years and up until recently it was fine. It hasn’t gotten beyond the loading screen for weeks now, and when I just attempted to open it due to the impending blizzard in my area it force closes before the loading wheel even starts. Back to accuweather I go

No way to stop/ terminate subcription
by Parmend6 on 2021/01/13 14:31
This app has no cancel button. There is no way to terminate. Even if you delete it, it goes on charging. Only choices once you download it is weekly, monthly or yearly charges. If you find a phone number that someone answers please let me know.
Subscription charges way too easy to start it seems on purpose
by jmeyer22 on 2021/01/12 23:17
I have never fallen for any subscription charge schemes until now. This app has been charging me $5 w tax WEEKLY and I don’t even know how I signed up for a subscription. Yeah it was my mistake but it was a way too easy mistake to make. They took about $70 from me and not even eligible for a refund even if I never used the app or the feature.
Mis promotes app
by Lk 7556 on 2021/01/11 21:22
This app is not free in any way. One week free trial then you must pay a weekly or monthly subscription. Waste of time downloading. Completely deceptive marketing. There was no visible means to use only the free version without going through the registration/free trial process. these type of developers should be banned from the Apple store.

If You Pay Taxes, You’ve Already Paid For This
by Connie Kaczka-Slattery on 2021/01/01 19:10
NOAA, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, is an agency within the United States Department of Commerce, and is funded in the annual budget. Services which are being offered at a premium used to be offered completely free, as they should be, since NOA is already funded by the U.S. taxpayers. The United States Government should offer this service as part of its multi-billion dollar budget and not play poor by requiring more money from us in order to get what we’ve already paid for. I guess this is a way to pass off expenses to citizens so we can continue to pay for corporate welfare programs. Wouldn’t want them to pay their own way. We certainly know how hard it would be if coronations had to pay their taxes, too. We have the yearly experience of doing so.

I have this app on my Apple iPad, iPhone and iMac because it is accurate and it has never crashed. I am kind of a weather addict and live on the east coast therefore we are susceptible to bad thunderstorms, severe nor’easters, hurricanes and tornadoes (fortunately not frequent). I am a sailor and was taught by my dad who wisely said, “There are old sailors and there are bold sailors, but there are no old bold sailors.” Knowing your weather is vital

Frustrating Experience
by The 5th Try on 2020/12/19 00:07
This app is very close to what the original Weather Underground Storm app was before IBM/Weather Channel butchered that app. Disclaimer: I used the free version for my test. I do not know if the paid version (in app purchases) would have the issues described here. This app has tremendous promise but it has some basic non-starters for me. The biggest of which is, for a location, the app does not remember the sizing that you select for the map display. For every location it is always zoomed in too tight or close. I zoom out to display more of the surrounding area, but the next time I use the app or switch locations it does not remember the map size and is zoomed back in. The weather alerts feature is great but appears to be limited to just 2 locations. Love the widget for the home screen. Nicely done. Hope they fix these issues/limitations.

I like being able to see the weather map but I hate getting notifications that don’t affect me. Currently I’m getting a notification about a hurricane in Figi. I live on the East coast of the USA. WHY the notification? This is the second time I’ve reported this issue. I won’t renew if not fixed by then. I can home screen bookmark the weather channel site
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.
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.
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!
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.
AWESOME!!
by Edwgass on 2020/02/02 01:08
Wow!! What great graphics and info!! I already feel safer. We’ve endured 2 major floods, here in Robeson County NC, just in the past 5 years. Here in rural America, the weather is a major factor in what goes on , what gets accomplished on a day to day basis. Thanks people for a job well done! PS. We Natives Never worshipped the sun(son), the created,...We worship the Father YAH, the Creator. But, when colonialism took place, another belief was instituted, instilled,,FORCED upon the Natives. Our spiritual roots go all the way back to the Old Hebrewic way referred to in the Old Testament. For some reference; ‘The History of the American Indians’ James Adair, first published in 1775. On the other hand, see Alexander Hislop’s ‘The Two Babylons’ for some very interesting details of how the practices in Catholicism and Christianity are traced all the way back to Ancient Babylon.
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.
Do not waste your time
by vvbgfdfg on 2020/09/07 15:22
The app should be good BUT everywhere you click they want to tease you into outrageously expensive subscription upgrades! In fact EVERY time you open the app you have to get by a screen for one of these baitware clicks where it says “continue” and you are signed up. If these popped up only the first time you use it, then maybe OK but these people are super greedy and unrealistic. DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME! My advice to anyone looking at apps, sort the reviews by the “most recent” as Apps change over time. In this case the NOAA app is an explosion of constant “in your face” subscription deal requests. One would expect professionalism with the “NOAA” name but it is far worse than all other competing weather apps. I strongly recommend NOAA fires the people behind this greed app and earn back your name. If you want to charge more for a “pro version”, go ahead but be clear about it and do not constantly ad-nag your non pro users
Next level
by KC daily driver on 2019/12/30 22:57
Started using WU for about 10 years ago to track weather conditions and historical data for major construction sites. When the App went mainstream it was by far the best ad based weather app. The recent updates to the function was difficult to navigate because they do give a lot of information. Almost to much, but the recent update to the radar are next level details. We rely on this app when we make plans to drive over the mountain pass in Colorado and it has always preformed well. Give it a chance and you will be amazed at how much information you can get from a ad based free app that can do circles around the closest competition.
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.
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.
Great app but needs rainfall amounts in summary screen
by P SOUL on 2020/03/18 20:31
I am an outdoor enthusiast and professional ecologist, and check weather regularly. Just switched from weather underground. Dark Sky is intuitive and accurate. My only real complaint/ suggestion is to incorporate predicted rainfall amount into the daily summary view. This information is available for each day, but hard to see multiple days at once since you need to click on each day and open the expanded view. There is a huge difference in 2 days both with 100% chance of rain, but one with 0.01” and one 1” predicted rainfall amount. Incorporate this info into a more accessible place and jump from an A to A+
Pretty good app
by Mike George - Lucia Falls, WA on 2020/09/13 00:03
I like the app in general very much. My suggest is to include a LEGEND page or pop up, that at a glance shows the different icons and what they mean. Without having to go into the side bar for setting parameters. Sometimes you just want to be reminded what an icon or feature does and is used for, and at a glance. Also, there should be some instruction on what some of the actions of the icons signify. Like when an icon is touched and it disappears. Otherwise some of the features are fantastic. My suggestion is to have a home page for each user, that will always load with a set of preset parameters. It kind of does this now I think, but not consistently. So to recap, it just needs more user friendly controls.
Love/Hate
by Lyla Garity on 2020/01/11 14:47
My trusty weather app when it works. I don’t know if mine updated and now it’s weird though.. so we’re on Tornado Watch, my husband’s phone got the notification but I didn’t. I checked the app, we’re in a high risk area but mine showed no warnings besides lightning danger where my husband’s showed all the warnings. Mine finally kicked in and showed them but I’m a stay at home parent with no storm shelter so I need to know right away. When it’s working for me I love it, when traveling I get local notifications, can see storm movements, and report better accuracies in local weather- like no it’s not drizzling there’s heavy rain. Including Local pollen count would make this better.
Like it, but accuracy is good for a laugh.
by Huneynutjex on 2020/02/06 18:39
For the most part, I really like this app. It usually does what it's supposed to, but sometimes it doesn't. Occasionally a temperature prediction will be way off. Like tonight it says it will be 39 at 7 pm, 32 at 9 pm and 39 at 11 pm. Possible? Sure. Likely to drop 7 degrees then go back up in the middle of the night? No. So far the off predictions have been so off it looks like an obvious glitch and I throw them out. But it makes me grateful that there are other free weather apps out there so I can get a more accurate forecast somewhere else and ignore (our laugh at) these ones. Update: I got a response from the support team and have shared more detailed info with them. Hopefully this will be resolved soon🙂 very impressed at their speedy response!
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.
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.
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.
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.
I can’t imagine it’s worth it
by Mered22 on 2020/10/28 00:48
Apparently I signed up for a weekly subscription to this app without knowing it, which is already shady, and when I checked my credit card statement I saw that I had been charged $2.99 plus tax over 8 weeks. I didn’t even have the app on my phone! It took me a while to figure out what “Pro Features Weekly” is, which is how it shows up on your credit card, but once I did, I downloaded the app to see what it was and it it even had banner adds! $2.99 a week ($3.17 with tax) doesn’t even remove the banner adds? Whatever “pro features” are costs $164 a year with tax. I can’t imagine that there aren’t better options out there for a weather app that aren’t trying to pull an opt out scam. Fool me once, shame on them, fool me 8 times, shame on me I guess. Be careful before you click around on this app people.
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.
Good Design But Not the NWS Forecast
by DCup888 on 2020/05/28 11:48
I chose this app and paid for the year subscription because I thought it would give me the National Weather Service (NWS) forecast, in addition to the radar, since it has NOAA in the name. The app is well-designed and has a lot of nice features. However, when I compare the NWS forecast for my location to the forecast in the app, they aren’t the same which is disappointing to me. I got rid of my old weather app because I felt that the weather predications it gave me weren’t as good as NWS forecasts. So now to see that this app is also not providing the NWS forecast is a big disappointment, especially after I paid for the year subscription. I guess I should have looked into it more before purchasing.
Full of dark patterns
by appstoreaccount1 on 2020/02/09 18:44
This app is not actually developed by, for, or associated with NOAA. When you first open it, it asks you to either start a 7-day trial or purchase a $20 subscription, and has a disclaimer that the trial will autorenew-- there's no obvious way to exit, and it won't let you into the app! If you try and go back to it later, it will work, but you will constantly be interrupted by fullscreen ads to upgrade, or dialogs to download their other apps. It wasn't like this before; I used this app to help plan my way through storms when I drove across the country. I don't what changed for them. All of this being said, this app is actually useful but very annoying and from the responses to other reviews the developer seems 100% fine with that.
No longer accurate
by ES082 on 2020/01/12 21:28
This app went through a major update a short time ago, it used to track right along with my Davis weather station and now it is way off of not just the weather station but local weather sources also, when all other apps and sources are saying one thing this app is 8 degrees higher . Also the high and low range for the day does not align with the hourly forecast for that same day. And on top of that it is saying lows in the coming days are in the negative temps and I am certain this will not be the case as every other app and source is reporting lows of 30 degrees. Something got crossed with data sources on this last major update. And yes I have ensured that my settings and location are correct, this is a huge app issue and right now I am sorry I paid for it.
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...
Almost Always Inaccurate
by Liss_Bee on 2020/09/07 11:52
I’ve had this app for awhile & the forecast is so inaccurate 90% of the time so I don’t see any reason to pay for the upgrade. Right now the forecast says “Clear” but the sky is covered entirely w/ storm clouds- it’s thundering & I’ve seen lightning twice. The most common current condition it pulls up for my town says “Patchy Fog” which never makes any sense. The only reason I’ve kept it on my phone is because I can see the radar which is beneficial since the app obviously isn’t using that to gather it’s info. I didn’t want to even bother complaining but this is about the 10th time this summer when a storm was expected & I’ve gone to the app for details/helpful ANYthing & today has just put it over the top. How can you expect people to pay when the free version doesn’t even deliver...
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!
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.
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.
Too expensive compared to others
by BlueMarlinJeff.com on 2020/09/20 14:38
There are many apps out there that accomplish the same thing for much less (even free). I have several weather apps on my iPhone, and randomly opened this one today, as I was curious about tropical weather formations (I live in Florida). My free version of this app had the tropical cyclone / hurricane icon “grayed out,” so no option to clearly see what’s going on in the Atlantic or Gulf! Or that information is buried within the free version and I have no inclination to go digging. Of the paid apps, I do find “Dark Sky” to be one of the best values for paid weather apps. I’m sure NOAA Weather has a robust paid version, but the price is far too steep compared to other apps.
I love this App and NOAA
by dafunman on 2020/06/22 20:11
I have used NOAA’s data to forecast storms for many years. I have a photographic memory and when I see certain data occurring I can predict with great accuracy the outcome. This app I only obtained today and boy am I going to have fun. I predicted Katrina I also predicted the three blizzards that hit the Washington area in 2010. I was in the hospital in Annapolis and told my wife she would not be able to come see me the next day that w e were going to get at least 21inches of snowfall, we got 21 inches of drifting snow. I had to wait until Friday to be transferred to Jons Hopkins. Thank you for all you do NOAA!
Lag time in reporting accuracy
by smt1778 on 2020/11/10 18:49
I live in Florida so keeping tabs on hurricanes is very important. The problem I have is that this app is several hours behind in reporting hurricane trajectory forecast info. I may check it just before bed and notice that this app reports something totally different than the weather channel and the local news and then wake up 8 hours later and find out that this app has changed to reflect what the news stations say. We’re talking about several hundred mile distances here. And this happens all the time. If the app reflected CURRENT data on hurricanes I’d give it 5 stars.
If You Pay Taxes, You’ve Already Paid For This
by Connie Kaczka-Slattery on 2021/01/01 19:10
NOAA, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, is an agency within the United States Department of Commerce, and is funded in the annual budget. Services which are being offered at a premium used to be offered completely free, as they should be, since NOA is already funded by the U.S. taxpayers. The United States Government should offer this service as part of its multi-billion dollar budget and not play poor by requiring more money from us in order to get what we’ve already paid for. I guess this is a way to pass off expenses to citizens so we can continue to pay for corporate welfare programs. Wouldn’t want them to pay their own way. We certainly know how hard it would be if coronations had to pay their taxes, too. We have the yearly experience of doing so.
Fast, reliable radar images and early storm warnings
by BRCBat on 2020/04/22 02:01
My wife uses The Weather Channel and waits and waits for the radar to stream because of all the ad images and news and whatnot. I use NOAAWeather because it’s just the weather, clear, fast, reliable. And now with storm alert messaging I get wherever I am and have Location and messaging activated. Lately, my wife asks me for weather information. This is my go-to weather station, complete with emergency alert! Keep your phone next to your bed at night with volume on and up. It might save your life.
Too cluttered screen
by farmergirlIA on 2020/04/05 18:27
When I started using this app in 2019, there were very few “bells and whistles “ that had to appear on my phone screen. Now I’m to the point of deleting the app because in addition to the ads and the pin for my location, there’s a large tab that gives me GPS coordinates for my location, a widget that shows a time lapse bar for the radar, a flashing beacon signaling my location, and now a button on the time lapse bar begging me to click on it to get the latest forecast. I have tried to get rid of as many screen widgets as possible, but these still dog me. This is too much for a small 4” screen. I can barely see any of the actual weather systems now. Too bad. This used to be a useful app.
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
Curious Storm Rotation
by Mr.Ponk on 2020/07/27 17:30
On this app's "Upgrade to PRO version, the Graphic, shows two bright red, animated, "clock-wise rotating icons", that presumably, represent a storm's center!?! But here, in the US, being in the Northern Hemisphere, is it not true, that tropical storms, and hurricanes, rotate "counter-clockwise"?!? Additionally, if your finger happens to, inadvertently, touch a location, that place gets a "PIN icon", and simultaneously, it immediately, shows weather conditions, at the exact position, of the inadvertent PIN! All well & good, but nowhere, on the app, can the inadvertent PIN, be deleted, and reset, by default, your own location! so annoying. Course it is crowded by ads, that can only be eliminated, by purchasing their upgrade! But I guess, others than those issues, it's better than "a sharp stick, in your armpit!"!!!

App change
by P4ckers on 2021/01/22 16:08
With the new updates I find the app added changes for the week outlook more of a pain! The changes are more of a nuisance , very disappointed in these changes. As this was the only app that was easy to access without needing to click additional items for daily forecast! 😟
Excellent weather guide

Leave me alone already. You brought it on yourself
by glennlovesgolf on 2021/01/21 04:59
Last straw. Thought it would be cool as a weather tracker but the ads and popups to turn on location, to change settings drive me to delete as I am writing this review. Good bye
Too Early to Rate
by eBureaucrat on 2021/01/20 14:32
I’m being promoted to review within two minutes after starting to try to use the App. Thus far I've learned how to get prompted to convert to the paid version but have not learned how to get a forecast. I’ll give 4 stars since I still have hope that this App will be useful, perhaps only to see the current weather radar situation for my location.
Widget Broken Since November
by hubb321 on 2021/01/19 19:32

Wouldn't pay again.
by 179365348 on 2021/01/17 15:18
I bought the pro features and it seems to never be right any more. These issues started with in the last two weeks. A perfect example is that it's telling me that it won't snow till at the soonest noon today. Yet it's been snowing since about 9am. So I don't understand what happened. It used to be great. Not so anymore.

No way to stop/ terminate subcription
by Parmend6 on 2021/01/13 14:31
This app has no cancel button. There is no way to terminate. Even if you delete it, it goes on charging. Only choices once you download it is weekly, monthly or yearly charges. If you find a phone number that someone answers please let me know.
Subscription charges way too easy to start it seems on purpose
by jmeyer22 on 2021/01/12 23:17
I have never fallen for any subscription charge schemes until now. This app has been charging me $5 w tax WEEKLY and I don’t even know how I signed up for a subscription. Yeah it was my mistake but it was a way too easy mistake to make. They took about $70 from me and not even eligible for a refund even if I never used the app or the feature.
Mis promotes app
by Lk 7556 on 2021/01/11 21:22
This app is not free in any way. One week free trial then you must pay a weekly or monthly subscription. Waste of time downloading. Completely deceptive marketing. There was no visible means to use only the free version without going through the registration/free trial process. these type of developers should be banned from the Apple store.

Pathetic change to what the site used to be. Really bad, trash this and return the old version. I received your form letter email reply. It had nothing to do with my comment. I will be using someone else’s weather app. Yours is useless.
Excellent warnings
by ed&suzy on 2020/12/23 18:12
The most timely weather reporting we have ever had. Thank you!
This ROCKS
by mr gygygfr on 2020/12/23 15:11
I love this app it helped me so much the only thing is can you make some things free but this app rocks and it is now even the best it can be it helped me when I went on vacation a lot and even where I live. But it would be cool if I bought the hurricane watch are one of the many things on sale but this game is the best
I love paying for info that’s free online
by Fsmarrih on 2020/12/23 07:54
Don’t get the app just find a good weather website that’s free. Unless you pay it’s not worth it. the pop ups and limited features are too annoying for me.

Not at all satisfied with the way this outfit markets it’s product!
Adds
by Method55 on 2020/12/22 20:49
To get someone to buy into your app cut the weird games and adds. It’s a turn off. It would be great otherwise. There are so many out there that don’t have the ridiculous amount of adds and clicks. My opinion .

Terrible app!
by skifan56 on 2020/12/20 19:25
Way too many glitches for a $20 app! It says NOAA but after using the app I'm sure they're not affiliated with this app. Can't tell you how many times I've seen zero clouds on the app to go outside and see nothing but clouds!
Cannot be without it...
by Walkiezee on 2020/12/20 17:22
I have this app on my Apple iPad, iPhone and iMac because it is accurate and it has never crashed. I am kind of a weather addict and live on the east coast therefore we are susceptible to bad thunderstorms, severe nor’easters, hurricanes and tornadoes (fortunately not frequent). I am a sailor and was taught by my dad who wisely said, “There are old sailors and there are bold sailors, but there are no old bold sailors.” Knowing your weather is vital

You can depend on the accuracy of the reported or expected weather. I check it everyday
Frustrating Experience
by The 5th Try on 2020/12/19 00:07
This app is very close to what the original Weather Underground Storm app was before IBM/Weather Channel butchered that app. Disclaimer: I used the free version for my test. I do not know if the paid version (in app purchases) would have the issues described here. This app has tremendous promise but it has some basic non-starters for me. The biggest of which is, for a location, the app does not remember the sizing that you select for the map display. For every location it is always zoomed in too tight or close. I zoom out to display more of the surrounding area, but the next time I use the app or switch locations it does not remember the map size and is zoomed back in. The weather alerts feature is great but appears to be limited to just 2 locations. Love the widget for the home screen. Nicely done. Hope they fix these issues/limitations.
Scam!
by Dachman on 2020/12/18 18:39
Poor user interface placement of trial and paid subscription. Beware, it’s a scam!
Sigh ...
by ENickel09 on 2020/12/18 03:56
I like being able to see the weather map but I hate getting notifications that don’t affect me. Currently I’m getting a notification about a hurricane in Figi. I live on the East coast of the USA. WHY the notification? This is the second time I’ve reported this issue. I won’t renew if not fixed by then. I can home screen bookmark the weather channel site
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.
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.
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!
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.
AWESOME!!
by Edwgass on 2020/02/02 01:08
Wow!! What great graphics and info!! I already feel safer. We’ve endured 2 major floods, here in Robeson County NC, just in the past 5 years. Here in rural America, the weather is a major factor in what goes on , what gets accomplished on a day to day basis. Thanks people for a job well done! PS. We Natives Never worshipped the sun(son), the created,...We worship the Father YAH, the Creator. But, when colonialism took place, another belief was instituted, instilled,,FORCED upon the Natives. Our spiritual roots go all the way back to the Old Hebrewic way referred to in the Old Testament. For some reference; ‘The History of the American Indians’ James Adair, first published in 1775. On the other hand, see Alexander Hislop’s ‘The Two Babylons’ for some very interesting details of how the practices in Catholicism and Christianity are traced all the way back to Ancient Babylon.
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.
Do not waste your time
by vvbgfdfg on 2020/09/07 15:22
The app should be good BUT everywhere you click they want to tease you into outrageously expensive subscription upgrades! In fact EVERY time you open the app you have to get by a screen for one of these baitware clicks where it says “continue” and you are signed up. If these popped up only the first time you use it, then maybe OK but these people are super greedy and unrealistic. DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME! My advice to anyone looking at apps, sort the reviews by the “most recent” as Apps change over time. In this case the NOAA app is an explosion of constant “in your face” subscription deal requests. One would expect professionalism with the “NOAA” name but it is far worse than all other competing weather apps. I strongly recommend NOAA fires the people behind this greed app and earn back your name. If you want to charge more for a “pro version”, go ahead but be clear about it and do not constantly ad-nag your non pro users
Next level
by KC daily driver on 2019/12/30 22:57
Started using WU for about 10 years ago to track weather conditions and historical data for major construction sites. When the App went mainstream it was by far the best ad based weather app. The recent updates to the function was difficult to navigate because they do give a lot of information. Almost to much, but the recent update to the radar are next level details. We rely on this app when we make plans to drive over the mountain pass in Colorado and it has always preformed well. Give it a chance and you will be amazed at how much information you can get from a ad based free app that can do circles around the closest competition.
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.
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.
Great app but needs rainfall amounts in summary screen
by P SOUL on 2020/03/18 20:31
I am an outdoor enthusiast and professional ecologist, and check weather regularly. Just switched from weather underground. Dark Sky is intuitive and accurate. My only real complaint/ suggestion is to incorporate predicted rainfall amount into the daily summary view. This information is available for each day, but hard to see multiple days at once since you need to click on each day and open the expanded view. There is a huge difference in 2 days both with 100% chance of rain, but one with 0.01” and one 1” predicted rainfall amount. Incorporate this info into a more accessible place and jump from an A to A+
Pretty good app
by Mike George - Lucia Falls, WA on 2020/09/13 00:03
I like the app in general very much. My suggest is to include a LEGEND page or pop up, that at a glance shows the different icons and what they mean. Without having to go into the side bar for setting parameters. Sometimes you just want to be reminded what an icon or feature does and is used for, and at a glance. Also, there should be some instruction on what some of the actions of the icons signify. Like when an icon is touched and it disappears. Otherwise some of the features are fantastic. My suggestion is to have a home page for each user, that will always load with a set of preset parameters. It kind of does this now I think, but not consistently. So to recap, it just needs more user friendly controls.
Love/Hate
by Lyla Garity on 2020/01/11 14:47
My trusty weather app when it works. I don’t know if mine updated and now it’s weird though.. so we’re on Tornado Watch, my husband’s phone got the notification but I didn’t. I checked the app, we’re in a high risk area but mine showed no warnings besides lightning danger where my husband’s showed all the warnings. Mine finally kicked in and showed them but I’m a stay at home parent with no storm shelter so I need to know right away. When it’s working for me I love it, when traveling I get local notifications, can see storm movements, and report better accuracies in local weather- like no it’s not drizzling there’s heavy rain. Including Local pollen count would make this better.
Like it, but accuracy is good for a laugh.
by Huneynutjex on 2020/02/06 18:39
For the most part, I really like this app. It usually does what it's supposed to, but sometimes it doesn't. Occasionally a temperature prediction will be way off. Like tonight it says it will be 39 at 7 pm, 32 at 9 pm and 39 at 11 pm. Possible? Sure. Likely to drop 7 degrees then go back up in the middle of the night? No. So far the off predictions have been so off it looks like an obvious glitch and I throw them out. But it makes me grateful that there are other free weather apps out there so I can get a more accurate forecast somewhere else and ignore (our laugh at) these ones. Update: I got a response from the support team and have shared more detailed info with them. Hopefully this will be resolved soon🙂 very impressed at their speedy response!
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.
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.
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.
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.
I can’t imagine it’s worth it

Apparently I signed up for a weekly subscription to this app without knowing it, which is already shady, and when I checked my credit card statement I saw that I had been charged $2.99 plus tax over 8 weeks. I didn’t even have the app on my phone! It took me a while to figure out what “Pro Features Weekly” is, which is how it shows up on your credit card, but once I did, I downloaded the app to see what it was and it it even had banner adds! $2.99 a week ($3.17 with tax) doesn’t even remove the banner adds? Whatever “pro features” are costs $164 a year with tax. I can’t imagine that there aren’t better options out there for a weather app that aren’t trying to pull an opt out scam. Fool me once, shame on them, fool me 8 times, shame on me I guess. Be careful before you click around on this app people.
What worse can be said

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.
Good Design But Not the NWS Forecast
by DCup888 on 2020/05/28 11:48
I chose this app and paid for the year subscription because I thought it would give me the National Weather Service (NWS) forecast, in addition to the radar, since it has NOAA in the name. The app is well-designed and has a lot of nice features. However, when I compare the NWS forecast for my location to the forecast in the app, they aren’t the same which is disappointing to me. I got rid of my old weather app because I felt that the weather predications it gave me weren’t as good as NWS forecasts. So now to see that this app is also not providing the NWS forecast is a big disappointment, especially after I paid for the year subscription. I guess I should have looked into it more before purchasing.
Full of dark patterns
by appstoreaccount1 on 2020/02/09 18:44
This app is not actually developed by, for, or associated with NOAA. When you first open it, it asks you to either start a 7-day trial or purchase a $20 subscription, and has a disclaimer that the trial will autorenew-- there's no obvious way to exit, and it won't let you into the app! If you try and go back to it later, it will work, but you will constantly be interrupted by fullscreen ads to upgrade, or dialogs to download their other apps. It wasn't like this before; I used this app to help plan my way through storms when I drove across the country. I don't what changed for them. All of this being said, this app is actually useful but very annoying and from the responses to other reviews the developer seems 100% fine with that.
No longer accurate
by ES082 on 2020/01/12 21:28
This app went through a major update a short time ago, it used to track right along with my Davis weather station and now it is way off of not just the weather station but local weather sources also, when all other apps and sources are saying one thing this app is 8 degrees higher . Also the high and low range for the day does not align with the hourly forecast for that same day. And on top of that it is saying lows in the coming days are in the negative temps and I am certain this will not be the case as every other app and source is reporting lows of 30 degrees. Something got crossed with data sources on this last major update. And yes I have ensured that my settings and location are correct, this is a huge app issue and right now I am sorry I paid for it.
Wonderful!

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...
Almost Always Inaccurate
by Liss_Bee on 2020/09/07 11:52
I’ve had this app for awhile & the forecast is so inaccurate 90% of the time so I don’t see any reason to pay for the upgrade. Right now the forecast says “Clear” but the sky is covered entirely w/ storm clouds- it’s thundering & I’ve seen lightning twice. The most common current condition it pulls up for my town says “Patchy Fog” which never makes any sense. The only reason I’ve kept it on my phone is because I can see the radar which is beneficial since the app obviously isn’t using that to gather it’s info. I didn’t want to even bother complaining but this is about the 10th time this summer when a storm was expected & I’ve gone to the app for details/helpful ANYthing & today has just put it over the top. How can you expect people to pay when the free version doesn’t even deliver...
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!
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.
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.
Too expensive compared to others
by BlueMarlinJeff.com on 2020/09/20 14:38
There are many apps out there that accomplish the same thing for much less (even free). I have several weather apps on my iPhone, and randomly opened this one today, as I was curious about tropical weather formations (I live in Florida). My free version of this app had the tropical cyclone / hurricane icon “grayed out,” so no option to clearly see what’s going on in the Atlantic or Gulf! Or that information is buried within the free version and I have no inclination to go digging. Of the paid apps, I do find “Dark Sky” to be one of the best values for paid weather apps. I’m sure NOAA Weather has a robust paid version, but the price is far too steep compared to other apps.
I love this App and NOAA
by dafunman on 2020/06/22 20:11
I have used NOAA’s data to forecast storms for many years. I have a photographic memory and when I see certain data occurring I can predict with great accuracy the outcome. This app I only obtained today and boy am I going to have fun. I predicted Katrina I also predicted the three blizzards that hit the Washington area in 2010. I was in the hospital in Annapolis and told my wife she would not be able to come see me the next day that w e were going to get at least 21inches of snowfall, we got 21 inches of drifting snow. I had to wait until Friday to be transferred to Jons Hopkins. Thank you for all you do NOAA!
Lag time in reporting accuracy
by smt1778 on 2020/11/10 18:49
I live in Florida so keeping tabs on hurricanes is very important. The problem I have is that this app is several hours behind in reporting hurricane trajectory forecast info. I may check it just before bed and notice that this app reports something totally different than the weather channel and the local news and then wake up 8 hours later and find out that this app has changed to reflect what the news stations say. We’re talking about several hundred mile distances here. And this happens all the time. If the app reflected CURRENT data on hurricanes I’d give it 5 stars.
If You Pay Taxes, You’ve Already Paid For This
by Connie Kaczka-Slattery on 2021/01/01 19:10
NOAA, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, is an agency within the United States Department of Commerce, and is funded in the annual budget. Services which are being offered at a premium used to be offered completely free, as they should be, since NOA is already funded by the U.S. taxpayers. The United States Government should offer this service as part of its multi-billion dollar budget and not play poor by requiring more money from us in order to get what we’ve already paid for. I guess this is a way to pass off expenses to citizens so we can continue to pay for corporate welfare programs. Wouldn’t want them to pay their own way. We certainly know how hard it would be if coronations had to pay their taxes, too. We have the yearly experience of doing so.
Fast, reliable radar images and early storm warnings
by BRCBat on 2020/04/22 02:01
My wife uses The Weather Channel and waits and waits for the radar to stream because of all the ad images and news and whatnot. I use NOAAWeather because it’s just the weather, clear, fast, reliable. And now with storm alert messaging I get wherever I am and have Location and messaging activated. Lately, my wife asks me for weather information. This is my go-to weather station, complete with emergency alert! Keep your phone next to your bed at night with volume on and up. It might save your life.
Too cluttered screen
by farmergirlIA on 2020/04/05 18:27
When I started using this app in 2019, there were very few “bells and whistles “ that had to appear on my phone screen. Now I’m to the point of deleting the app because in addition to the ads and the pin for my location, there’s a large tab that gives me GPS coordinates for my location, a widget that shows a time lapse bar for the radar, a flashing beacon signaling my location, and now a button on the time lapse bar begging me to click on it to get the latest forecast. I have tried to get rid of as many screen widgets as possible, but these still dog me. This is too much for a small 4” screen. I can barely see any of the actual weather systems now. Too bad. This used to be a useful app.
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
Curious Storm Rotation
by Mr.Ponk on 2020/07/27 17:30
On this app's "Upgrade to PRO version, the Graphic, shows two bright red, animated, "clock-wise rotating icons", that presumably, represent a storm's center!?! But here, in the US, being in the Northern Hemisphere, is it not true, that tropical storms, and hurricanes, rotate "counter-clockwise"?!? Additionally, if your finger happens to, inadvertently, touch a location, that place gets a "PIN icon", and simultaneously, it immediately, shows weather conditions, at the exact position, of the inadvertent PIN! All well & good, but nowhere, on the app, can the inadvertent PIN, be deleted, and reset, by default, your own location! so annoying. Course it is crowded by ads, that can only be eliminated, by purchasing their upgrade! But I guess, others than those issues, it's better than "a sharp stick, in your armpit!"!!!
