Completely revamped for 2020, and now featuring Critical Alerts, StormWatch+
aspires to be your daily weather app of choice, no matter the weather! Access
the most pertinent weather information - like current conditions, hourly and
extended forecast, and local or national radar - quickly...
Redesign is welcome but still needs work
The recent redesign is an improvement overall but it still definitely needs to be refined. For example it currently lacks a position map marker or a way to recenter the view to your location if you zoom out or scroll around.
Enjoying the 4.0 update
Love being able to check the day’s hourly forecast so quickly.
I heard great reviews about this app after the tornadoes ripped through Tennessee. So I downloaded it hoping it would be better than the weather channel app. And it looks great, but every time I try to go to the radar it crashes.
Waste of money
Constantly freezes and crashes. The only part of the app I can actually use is the radar.
Costs $8.99 for severe alert functionality
(Response to developer's response: You probably should make it clearer what the free version of the app offers, as this was recommended elsewhere online by someone who lauded the alert functionality for severe weather events. I was ready to probably pay the 8.99 for this functionality, but again, I think this generally should be charged at the outset if its the core functionality an app is providing. That said, if the other features you mentioned are adding value as well (I wasn't aware of them), they should again be pointed out so people are clear on the difference between the free and premium product. Raised review to 3 stars for now - still won't be subscribing as I think the charge should be provided up front (you could also consider offering a separate "premium" app if you really want to make the initial download free but want to have a pay product as well). I'll consider editing/deleting the review later if I have a chance to check out free version - This is essentially just a weather radar app with some basic severe weather safety tips unless you invest the $8.99 in buying the full version, as far as I could tell. The $8.99 is very reasonable for the service (apparently) provided, but it's poor form offering this free version with such limited functionality imo. Just charge $8.99 at the outset and I probably would have paid it & hopefully rated 5 stars.
Storm watch works great.
It works! I bought it to have something to wake me up if a tornado was coming. I decided to test the audio by opting for an alert for a tornado watch. The next time that happened, i heard no alert. I checked all my settings; everything was turned on. I sent an email to Support. An hour later i heard a piercing sound, audible from two rooms away. Tornado warning! A very nice support person explained that the alerts for watches are the phone's default Notification sound. For my phone, that's not very loud, and I missed it. But the "warning" sound is loud, just as it should be.
Storm Watch + has kept my family safe on more than one occasion. It is louder and more timely than our local sirens. I've also tested it against The Weather Channel's app and it gives quicker, more accurate updates. Additionally, it offers tips to stay protected that help me make sure I can keep my family safe and sound. I don't leave home without it, ever.
Worth every penny!
The latest update to StormWatch+ makes an already invaluable app, which provides instant National Weather Service severe weather warnings for your exact location, also be a first-class weather app with a great radar and local NWS temps and forecasts. Way to go guys!
Great app & service!!
So, I love the free forecast and radar. Radar loads SO much faster than the Weather channel app and it doesn't get jerky zooming in and out. The extra StormWatch+ service is rock solid, alerted to any weather that pops up in my area that I need to know about. Get this app!
Free!? Not really!
As the wife of a very successful app developer, listing your product as free, then providing zero service unless you chose to pay $6.99 is misleading and dishonest. While I appreciate the fine print on this issue, and asking for no negative reviews, please consider changing your bait and switch business approach. Make it free or mark it as paid. Not worth the download.
Works as advertised. I love how loud this app is - always gets my attention. Great customer service if you have any questions.
Very great product
Love it. Helps me know everything there is to know about the weather! Great work.
App is even better with this new update, fixed all bugs I had, love the app
Free app, but it actually charges you $6.99 to get emergency push notifications! I'm deleting it, because I don't want to pay extra for it to do what I thought it was going to do in the first place.
No longer crashes
App has worked since ios8
