Love it 😊 but room for improvements
I have been using accuweather for 7 years now and one thing I noticed is it is having a crash report on the Apple Watch ⌚️ and it’s not working 100% on the Apple Watch ⌚️ and I noticed it lags during start up on my new iPhone X’r I am using iOS 12.4 and it also lags on my Apple Watch ⌚️ I don’t know if you developers are aware of this issue but if you aren’t I have been dealing with this issue with all the iPhones that I have had and every update that gets done seems to improve it a little bit but it doesn’t fix it all the way and I understand it’s difficult to get things right during each update and you developers definitely nailed it with adding it were this app keeps alerting you down to the very minute when severe weather is about to hit but one thing I would add in the future if you can is having it notify you when rain will be starting I know some apps have that but it would definitely be a nice feature to have with accuweather because I use accuweather a lot but I do love accuweather and I do trust it a lot more than some of my other apps that I have
So so app
I was a regular user of Storm, but they deleted the ad-free option so I tried AccuWeather. Nope, It’s worse. The forecast, regardless of the name is no better than any other weather forecast, which is to say poor. A few observations: There is no option that I’ve found for displaying wind speed. The cloud cover is truly odd, lighter cloud cover has darker opacity and heavier cloud cover is lighter opacity, huh? That’s the opposite of what it should be. I’ve got the Premium version and it offers a 25 day forecast, well isn’t that special. The weather forecasters have trouble with tomorrows weather and they think they can forecast 25 days out? For entertainment purposes only. I get FAR too many severe weather notifications, many more than I get in Storm. Most of them are repeats, if a winter weather advisory is posted at 9:00 AM I get a notification right away, if I turn the screen off I will find another notification the next time I open it, for the same original advisory. Once is enough, thank you! Finally, the radar is pretty worthless, sometimes there’s nothing there when there should be, other times while playing the past couple of hours some of the “slices” are missing so the rain/snow is hurry jerky. When I check Storm’s radar it’s much better. Sorry, but this app is pretty sad.
I get the MOST ACCURATE weather from this App ! Many weather channels & apps to choose from . I use to go by other sources , but most of them never told me the REAL WEATHER ,LIKE ACCUWEATHER DOES .It also gives more information about what to except on Winds ,Rain , Snow , and with Hourly , Daily or Weekly . So when it’s time for a Vacation or just going out shopping for the Day , I know exactly what to wear , and what items , like a Umbrella or Jacket for the cooler weather in the evening. I Have DELETED ALL MY OTHER WEATHER APPS with mistrusted details ! This one App tells me everything I need for any Outing .Makes my Days Happy , when I’m prepared .Went to Family Reunion, Very Nice Warm 80’s Weather , until the middle of outside Reunion. It started to pour down the rain , and chilled off quickly .I had a change of warmer clothes ,and raincoat & rainboots ,with a Umbrella in my Car .Sure made me tell everyone about Accuweather ,when they all kept asking me , how did you know to be prepared for a such a sudden change ! I felt like I was the Smartest Person Out Of the Whole Family ! Thank You Accuweather , you are my Daily Best Friend ! Shelley H .
My, my, am I pleasantly surprised today. I have been looking for years for an ACCURATE weather app that has animated weather conditions and finally by a chance view of an MSN sponsored ad (ads I never look at) I find AccuWeather. I’m amazed at the accuracy, appearance and ease of use of the app. It’s not overwhelming in its delivery and yet more detailed delivery is readily at your fingertips if you so choose. Can’t wait to see how accurate the rainy season of Southern California will be reported. To make this app beyond great please, please, pleeeeeeease give us the option to add weather sounds to go with your AccuWeather forecasted conditions even at a premium. A lot of us live in places where we miss the sounds of a windy day, or a rainy day, or a lightening stormy day, or the sound of ocean waves. Just imagine the comforting sounds for many people. I added other areas that have lots of weather change patterns to my AccuWeather app list just to see the different weather conditions. I am so looking forward to hearing them as well someday soon.
Layout is Confusing
I decided to download the premium version of this app after The Weather Channel had too many video advertisements. I was just tired of the ads. This app has no ads, but it is the LEAST user-friendly app I’ve ever had. The “back arrow” buttons are the same color and size as the text, and they’re placed right next to the text, so it took me a while to figure out how to go back. And every screen, the back button looks different. Sometimes you have to swipe down to get out of a screen (for example, hourly), and sometimes you have to hit the back button. And don’t even get me started on trying to toggle the hourly “compass”-style button. As soon as you touch the circle to try to drag it, the entire data does this weird zoom thing and the sensitivity is way too high for anyone’s thumb. It’s like they adjusted the mouse speed to 100- any tiny movement and you’re 4 hours past where you wanted to go, and it doesn’t land where you want it to land. Also, the circle should be on the actual hours, not on the bar graph below. You have to move the circle on the bar graph to see the hours change on top. It’s just not a very well-designed app.
Useful features, but the alerts need work
Accuweather is my primary weather app- it’s very good about serving up detailed and timely information, and the alerts are especially crucial when you live in a northern plains state like I do, where floods, tornadoes and suddenly icy roads are all things which have to be accounted for. It’s because of the alerts that I have to drop a couple of stars, though- more often than not, the push notifications which Accuweather sends me are almost useless, because it will buzz my Apple Watch or my phone with a message that I have an alert, but not include the nature of the threat. This forces me to dig out my phone, open the app and find the button with the yellow exclamation point next to it. High winds? Heavier than usual rain? An addendum to an existing flood alert? A tornado in my area? All treated the same. I get fatigued from all this vigilance, which can itself be dangerous- I’m forced to treat every pop-up like it’s a potential disaster, instead of just getting the important highlights in a watch alert which I can then either dismiss or explore in greater depth. This correction would make Accuweather so much more useable for me.
Exactly what I was looking for and more
I was looking for a weather app that would not only provide ACCURATE weather throughout the day and week, but also provide an allergy forecast, since I have pretty severe allergies. This app has done both of those, and done them well. It also has a small section on the Sun and Moon, and tells you the moon phase for the night. That is extremely beneficial for me, and is a feature I did not expect to find. I just saw an ad pop up to get 10 extra days of forecasts if I sign in with my Facebook, so I’m assuming I’ll have to pay for this at some point? Can’t be sure, but even if I do, I’m going to keep the app and pay for it, because it’s wonderful. It’s extremely simple and easy to use, and nice to look at (light and dark themes are also a bonus). I used to have this app a long time ago because it used to give a migraine forecast as well, since I get migraines often (don’t see that anymore, but that’s totally fine since my migraines are often related to the weather and allergies, and the app provides forecasts for both of those), and completely forgot about it. So happy I found it again! I know it’s odd to be so excited about a weather app, but trust me, when you have horrible allergies, arthritis, asthma, eczema, and migraines (yeah and I’m only 24, can’t imagine how bad I’ll be when I’m in my 70s), an app like this actually helps a decent amount so you can prepare for things a little bit.
Functional and Beautiful
I like everything about the AccuWeather app. AccuWeather has added one feature which I have never seen before. Within the iPhone app they have built a “Complication Center” which allows you to map different AccuWeather information onto the adaptable Apple Watch complication. The differing information will appear depending on which complication field you choose to add the AccuWeather complication to when customizing your Apple Watch. Basically, if the complication allows for three lines of information, in the complication center you can add three lines of detailed forecast information from within the app. But, if the complication is tiny (in one of the corners of your watch face) you can pick from a variety of secondary information to display there. When customizing the watch face all you need to do is add AccuWeather to any of the complication fields and your pre-selected weather information is displayed on one watch face. The AccuWeather team has done an incredible job designing this functional yet beautiful app.
Enjoyed this App for a few years & find it much better than any other weather app. The video section could be greatly improved with the most current weather that shows time, as well as the day recorded, and more about the weather as well. Many current Worldwide weather events as well as the USA Weather. It also has repetition of the same videos after showing it the first time, when it could be a similar video from the same weather event but from a different point of view, scenery, and source. Whom ever sets these up could do a much better job just by searching the internet as so many people report their whereabouts and how the weather is affecting them in their area. It would be a better radar section if it would include a World Radar section that would be continuous to see how the weather affects each different section of the World.
I really like the app overall. It loads fast when you open the app (stopped using the Weather Channel app because of very slow loading time). All the info I want is right up front in one view. I like the rain estimates. The radar is the only place that I think the app is lacking. It shows watches and warnings boxes but completely separate from the radar. You can’t overlay the two to get the full context. If the watches and warnings boxes could be overlayed on top of the radar that would be great. I did use the in app contact feature to send a message about this and I was very pleasantly surprised to receive a response the same day just 5 or so hours later. I honestly didn’t even expect a response. Hopefully they will take the suggestion seriously. One other lesser suggestion regarding the radar would be a storm tracks feature. I’ve seen this in other apps where they show a predicted track for a storm cell or parts of a larger storm line. Different color tracks mean different types of storms.
This used to be great
I don’t write many reviews. But after relying on a good app for many years, I must say ever since the start of 2018 it has plummeted. Too many unnecessary and inaccurate warnings, and the rain is barely accurate as well anymore. The temperature is still pretty spot on but besides that theres nothing else really left to applaud. The radar is odd, and only shows for the following hour, not to mention many glitchy aspects that so many people already have pointed out. I am currently looking for another app to replace this one with because these Special Weather statements are too much now. Ever since the start of the year they are over the top. I even got a Tornado warning in my area (which is a hilly area on the east coast that gets a tornado once every few years) and then a second alert five minutes later saying “CORRECTION: Foggy conditions”.... How does one mess up that bad... Not to mention general and regular thunder storms being sent out as Special Weather statements, and then not happening at all. All in all I am just very disappointed in the changes that have happened. This app used to be great, but now it isn’t.
Oddly sluggish on iPhone XS Max
I've been back and forth with the AccuWeather app. Ever since I upgraded to an iPhone XS Max from an iPhone 7 Plus, the app appears choppy -- most noticeably when there is a background animation (rain, snow, etc.). When I swipe up from the bottom to bring up the hourly/daily forecasts, the animation of the tab sliding up is very choppy. As is with the hourly forecasts when swiping left/right to view the hourly conditions. it just doesn't have an optimized feel. Funny, because this app runs buttery smooth on my old iPhone 7 Plus. I reached out to support several months ago when I first noticed the issue and was told it would be "mentioned to the dev team". About 7 or so revisions of the app, the same choppiness exists. Not sure if this is an issue with the XS Max in particular and the app not being optimized for this particular phone but I've tried uninstalling/reinstalling the app multiple times, force closing the app, hard rebooting my phone, and anything else I can think of. Hopefully the devs see my review as this is one of the best weather apps currently out there and I'd hate to ditch this app for this reason.
Loved it then, hate it now....
Why, oh, WHY do app developers insist on fixing what ain’t broken? It’s this weird restless need to do something- anything, and then insist it’s improvement. Don’t they read reviews? It’s the same lament that is so often seen.... the app was great UNTIL.....(fill in the blank). Random changes are not the same as progress! So this was my go-to app. Easy to read and navigate in 2 seconds flat. Now it’s a blinking, flashing, hot mess of bells and whistles, click-bait “news” and ads screaming “look HERE!!!” And they know it’s annoying, they KNOW it.... that’s why they’ll let you opt out for $4 in case you actually want to see, you know. the. weather. I’ve never met an app developer. But as a researcher I’d love to get to know one and figure out how their brains work. They must be an interesting breed to intentionally make a product annoying so you will pay more to avoid the annoyance. It would be brilliant, except.... there are other apps out there, in case you actually want to know, um, the weather (rather than a kangaroo stumbling through floodwaters, the ‘news’ they helpfully provided me this morning.) So....there’s that.
Useful at times, forecasts not always as accurate as they claim to be.
Minutecast tool is very useful at times. The Forecast is good most of the time, and sometimes they are spot on but earlier this week predicted 7 inches of snow with a change over to rain for my area for Monday. Then predicted about 3.5 inches earlier. And is now showing none while the NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE and weather Underground as well as almost all other weather sites and computer models continue to range between 2 and 5 inches of snow for my area on Monday. A couple weeks ago predicted one to three inches of snow with greater chances of higher amounts and we got about a tenth-inch. The minute cast feature may be useful occasionally but is often horrible. Says snow starting in 14 minutes but it is still not snowing after two hours. Sometimes there is moderate rain or snow and it says nothing for 120 minutes or the intensity is way off. And don’t trust any of that 90 day crap, even a week is a stretch. But as a whole, accuweather is decent.
Was my go to for weather
WAS My go-to weather app. Gives me what I need and the accuracy is often scary. Rain in 10 minutes? Yep. There it is. Wait 20 to walk the dogs. BUT honestly they say today is going to be a high of 85. It's 73 now, and in 2 minutes is supposed to be 83. It's not going to happen. Also it will say in one place no rain for two hours, the radar shows nothing, but the chance of rain it gives is high and it starts to pour. Just now saying raining for two hours, but the chance or rain during this hour? 0%. What? I check the NOAA radar, and it shows rain all around. The other apps are much closer to the forecast mark, seems to me not too hard to recalibrate if things change, others can! And be consistent in your readings. UPDATE: Was my go to, now it's inaccurate more times than not. I deleted when privacy an issue, then reloaded when fixed. Now don't use because it's wrong. Now? Says it's 100F which it's clearly not. Then I reload 3 times and it's suddenly right at 86. Too much work. I'm out.
