App Reviews

  • IBM Downgraded Weather App

    1
    By Concerned 343
    Don’t waist your time with this ‘upgrade’ —IBM’s ‘new’ Storm Radar app is sadly disappointing and wholly inferior to the original Weather Underground Storm App. It’s a shame to see that IBM purchased the Weather Channel and Weather Underground with the long term intent of implementing dated technology, removing superior competition, and providing decreased value. The original Storm app had easy access to everything one needs in a weather app, with the ‘new’ Storm Radar Weather app by IBM one would have to use multiple weather apps to even get anywhere near the performance of the original and still they would be lacking. The original WU Storm App helped my family weather Hurricane Harvey and saved us once from running directly in to the path of a tornado. Sad to think that IBM would purposely take away the public’s choice and access to an app that helped so many during Hurricane Harvey and could help countless others in the future. It’s also sad to see that someone is trying to raise the ratings on this app with all fake 5 Star one line reviews rather than fix the app’s issues or bring back the original Storm app features — in one month the rating has gone from 2.9 to 4.4 yet nothing has changed with the app.

    This app, which replaced Storm, looks pretty cool with the theming. Unfortunately, that’s about all I have good to say about it. It has just a fraction of Storm’s features and customizability. I sorely miss seeing more details like dewpoint, cloud cover, and pressure in the daily/hourly forecast graphs. And those graphs need to be full screen instead of trimmed down to fit just three days/six hours at a time. The map options are drastically reduced from Storm’s, too. I could go on and on about what this app is missing in comparison. It just baffles me that they removed the best weather app (Storm) before releasing those features in this app. I’m not sure who this app is targeting. On the one hand, there is the great future radar, but some of the forecast details we weather aficionados use to understand what’s coming and how to plan are missing. Hopefully this is just an interim, growing pains gap (akin to Apple Final Cut Pro’s 7 to X), and the missing features will work their way into subsequent versions. In the mean time, this app doesn’t really offer much, so I will have to use a combination of weather apps and websites to piece together the full picture.
  • Way worse than the last version

    What’s up with this?! Why did you launch a new app with a fraction of the functionality? I can’t find any of the old options I liked in the older version, like the wind arrows, which were actually amazingly accurate. Much worse. Revert back please. The loading is horrendous, especially the tropical storm/hurricane tracks, which are the most critical. It’s basically random as to whether storms will show up on my iPad screen or not. I open the app, then sit and stare at it for several minutes. Sometime none will load, so I zoom the view in and out, and sometimes that eventually works. Sometimes some storms will load, but not others. After all that, I still keep going back to the old version to view the wind arrows (which are my favorite feature, and are gone now), and going through the “OOPS, there’s an upgrade!” Screen, just so I can see where the arrows go into a tight circle, which indicates a hurricane. The arrows are so accurate, last year they predicted hurricanes before any service, or other data did! Bring back the arrows!
  • Bad UX.

    3rd time writing a 1-star review. Second time today. This app is bad. The original Wunderground version was 10x better. Stop deleting my reviews! Update: still a 1-star app. The storm tracking feature that worked so well in the original app is now a joke. I’m sitting in the middle of a multi-cell storm and the app doesn’t recognize any of them. 2nd Update. Since the developers obviously don’t read reviews, I’m only increasing my rating by 1 star. I’ve FINALLY located the features that I missed from the WU Storm app. The bigger problem with this app is its user experience (UX). There’s nothing to tell you where all the features are! They’re all hidden from sight in sub-menus and pull-downs. If there was a walkthrough during the first run of the app, there’s no way to run it again. This means, unless you spend a lot of time tapping around looking for stuff, you’ll never find it. This is still a poorly designed app, but it does have a lot of features. It might be the only weather app I use. I might pay the $1 to remove ads. But I can’t rate it better until the UX is greatly improved.
  • Has declined since intellicast...

    As both a pilot and a weather enthusiast I started out with intellicast. The original storm upgrade was decent but this most recent Storm Radar can easily be considered a downgrade from its predecessor. I am in agreement with many of the other reviews stating that the original app could have just been improved upon. Much of the information that had set this program apart from every other app has been removed. The removal of frontal information, pressure systems, and wind overlays (just to start) hinder the apps capability of being considered an advanced meteorological tool and more so places it in the category with every other weather app. The only difference is that it’s slightly less user friendly but with less to offer in exchange for its complexity. What used to be a very capable program for years is now heavily at risk of becoming easily replaced by a couple of the other apps that also offer detailed meteorological information. As a fan I hope they do better. Also, the canned responses don’t help. Update: Will be deleting due to the forced update with diminished performance. There are better radar/meteorology apps out there. 2nd Update: Notice this score is now below 3.0. There is a reason for this. The old app was easily greater than 4.0 consistently. Final Update: This app was at a 2.5. Then they deleted all of the negative ratings from disappointed users. Now it’s back at a 4.3, yet somehow, the exact same app. Interesting.
  • Some good, some not as good

    Compared to the old app before it became the new “Storm” there is only one thing I like better, and that even comes with a “but it doesn’t” caveat. I like that it is faster to pinpoint a specific location anywhere across the country by tapping instead of having to write in a place name. But, I liked the way you could save your frequently used places and go directly to them. I liked the ease of getting the customized overlays better in the old app. I still haven’t found out how to see jet stream patterns or surface wind speed patterns. I also think the forecasted radar view seems to be using a model which must say “always predict more rain in 12 hours”. I’d like to see a long range forecast, (even though I never trust them as being more accurate than what I used to do with the radar images, but now I don’t even trust the radar forecast)

    Storm Radar isn’t the worst weather app but it’s also far from the best... the only reason I haven’t deleted it yet is that it has potential and I keep hoping they will upgrade the features to match their claims. The biggest blunder they have is there is no way of setting minimums of what is considered a storm so basically if a storm watcher reports anything happening within 300 miles it shows as a storm even though the storm track is nowhere near the users location and is unwanted information. This means is anyone reporting reports a brief sprinkle it’s considered a storm and it pops up the same as if there was a imminent flood situation. The other problem that needs immediate attention is it is not intuitive as to how to set it up. There ought to be a how-to manual manual built in at least until they figure how to make it general public friendly...
  • Summary: annoying

    Not sure why they needed to change to a different storm app. All the reviews here indicate a step backward with this release yet they continue to ignore the comments. The old one had a better layout and could see daily, hourly and current temp and weather at a glance as a small banner at the bottom, with radar front and center how I like it. Now there’s an obtrusive banner at the top middle which only shows current conditions and also partially obscures the map and you have to move it out of the way. Only able to see hourly if I press the banner then scroll. annoying! Have to close the banner to see the radar which I don’t like. If you click anywhere on the map it changes your location which isnt intuitive and you can’t switch between saved locations. Please just keep the old version alive and don’t kill it at the end of the month! or at least allow you to switch to the old view layout...

    Oct 2018 update: I reinstalled after seeing the reviews go up. The layout has gotten better. I can now pan and zoom with a single finger without it changing my location by where I tap. I still miss the storm tracking features of the old Storm app that this author forced me to replace. I don't like the waste of time i gave them for reading the release notes for the past two updates since they were a copy of each other and had no details. June 28 update: I can no longer tolerate this junky app. I need to find another weather app because this one is poorly maintained and lacks stable pan, pinch functionality. I feel like keeping it installed on my machine gives this company bragging rights....app removed. Original May 2018. This app appears to be the result of a last ditch effort for a company poorly ran before closing their doors or the actions taken by a trust fund investor to purchase an establish app company with loyal users and replace the current product with their drinking buddy’s app idea. Unfortunately they missed the expectation of most of the current users, alienated the rest of them by forcing them to abandon the old app and adopt this new one. I am looking for another weather app to replace this one so my local news channel app with have to suffice.

    Very close to be exact timing, within minutes, but it comes from Tallahassee which is about 50 miles from our location. The warnings that pop up are different from the actual Radar view, but he Radar map view is just about right on. I have two small dogs, so when the warnings pop up I can get them outside to walk and relieve themselves before the bad weather starts. Also, I love being outside working in my flower beds, so the warnings give me time to put things away and get inside. Great APP! I give it a 5 because I think it is pretty darn accurate, especially considering the weather is Mother Nature, and she can be hard to predict.
