Love This App
Love it b/c it let’s me look at the weather in other cities before I finalize my travel plans so I will know what the weather will be where I’m going and the outlook for several days which makes it easy to make decisions to still go or postpone due to possible bad weather forecasted. For example I was planning a trip to the Mountain here in Asheville, North Carolina and found that the weather was not going to be in my favor due to snow. First, I’m disabled and can’t take chances on being stuck somewhere I’m not able to get back home cause they shut down the highway when bad weather comes. Second, where I currently reside in North Carolina we get plenty of bad weather from snow, sleet, freezing rain and blizzard (due to nor Easters). I don’t take chances at home so why would I want to take chances somewhere else. I can’t take a risk of falling b/c of several medical issues that restrict my ability to get around (both knees been replaced and currently waiting on date for lower spine surgery) along with several other medical issues that restrict my ability to just go and take unnecessary chances. This app helps me make smart decisions that will best help me protect my health. Love it. It’s a 5 Star App. Highly Recommend you get it if you don’t already have it.
Better than the full website for fast information
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
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
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,
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
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
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
I just downloaded this app because my old weather app just changed drastically for the worse. Reading these reviews makes me think the root data provider for all these types of apps just changed how it does business. That being said, I signed up for the one week free trial that will automatically renew after the free trial is over. When signing up, the price was stated as nine dollars and change a year. What they don’t tell you is that is only one of three options. Nine something a year, four something per quarter and three dollars a week. Guess which “plan” you are automatically renewed to? The three dollars a week. If you aren’t paying attention, you will have spent the price of a year subscription in under a month. This information was hidden in the entire sign up process. I wouldn’t have bothered to look if Apple hadn’t sent me an eMail spelling out the terms. I think there must be quite a few complaints for Apple to do that.
NOAA app for my iPhone is okay
This app could use a little bit of an upgrade. The weather “alert” app is not working since I rely heavily for the alert for thunderstorms and flooding. We have cattle and we have a creek. We can loose some of our cattle if our creek gets flooded. So I’m constantly looking at the weather to be prepared to move cattle when we need to. But, the alert would be very helpful and would be less stressful for me since I’m too busy to keep watching for the weather..... 😑 However, I dislike the fact that there is another weather app you can purchase for $4.99 a month just to know where the lightning strikes are at, when I already have the NOAA app. I wouldn’t mind paying $0.99 a month for the extra’s not $4.99.
Just what I was looking for
Update: Another option I’d like to have is the ability to turn on alerts but turn on/off alert overlays on the map. This app presents all the information I’m looking for in a simple layout. With other apps radar is secondary, this app makes it primary but very easy to then get detailed weather info. Here are two improvements I’d recommend. Add selectable zoom levels for the radar at launch. The current setting is too focused and I have to zoom out to see the bigger picture. Maybe 50, 100, 300 miles out from location. Second I’d like the sunrise/sunset to be “smart”. After sunset display the sunrise time. After sunrise display the sunset time. No need for separate icons. Thanks for a great weather app!
This app has become a big mess.
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
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
This app does everything it says it will do. However I’ve had a couple of occasions where the app’s temperature readings both current and predicted don’t agree with other sources for the same location or my own thermometer. These disagreements are wide in scope and long in duration — 7 - 10 degrees high or low, and they can last several days or more. So I can’t trust it for vacation planning, for example, without a double-check — something I learned by experience. It’s off by 7 degrees right now for my home location. For alerts, it will leave old expired alerts in place on the map even as it talks about new alerts elsewhere. So while it works very well and I’m a monthly subscriber I cannot recommend this app wholeheartedly until NOAA fixes these issues.
Charge after deletion
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.
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.
