App Reviews

  • Build me up, just to break me down

    By The Mr's Mrs.
    Downloaded WeatherBug app about 2 weeks ago and really liked it and then... the update. Initially, I was quite impressed and pleased with the push notification weather alerts for severe weather. I especially liked that the weather alerts would push to my phone at least 15 minutes before any of my other - even local - weather apps and that they even had a “dangerous storm warning” notification, which was correct each time I received it. The widget worked wonderfully as well and was probably my second favorite feature. Enter the update. Dun dun DUUUNNNN! It completely killed everything I enjoyed and appreciated about the app. I’ve not received a single push notification since nor has the widget been functional despite deleting the app and all its data from both my phone and AppStore account. The widget simply asks that I open the app and agree to TOU and PP, which is not even an option. You agree to the TOU upon initial launch of the app but that does not give the widget functionality. I also dislike that I am unable to remove the township that the app has deemed my home/current location and set it to the correct area as it is mistakenly locating me in another town. Sadly and disappointedly I am deleting the app permanently unless the next version, which seem to be released monthly, remedies these debilitating flaws and restores the app to its previous performance and reliability.
  • Terribly slow and contradicting

    By King of Rancho Cucamonga
    It’s horribly slow to load any new info without jumping through hoops. Start switching cities, close out of it completely to name a couple and the radar is spotty at best. What I mean is huge chunks of the radar image are missing, conveniently it’s usually missing around the area I’m trying to look at. Does me no good if the nearest radar image is 200 miles away. Also the hourly and the 10 day rarely if ever jive. 10 day forecast may say %80 chance of storms this afternoon, the hourly will say sunny the whole time with %0 chance of rain and I suppose I could check the radar but oh wait, it doesn’t work. This app used to be absolutely perfect when I first got it in 2012 but now it’s just a headache. It’d be great if you fixed it but it is free so I guess I shouldn’t complain too much. So a few days later they claimed to have looked into the issue and corrected it. I’m telling you I wish everyone worked like these guys! It’s fixed and works flawlessly! The level of support and attention they paid to my measly whining is outstanding. You guys are top notch, thank you. I work outside so having a good weather app is important and you guys are spot on
  • Used to be better

    By brad34785
    When I first downloaded this app several years ago it used to load information much faster, and more consistently. Now, many years and updates later, it rarely even loads any information when i am connected to wifi. The app will open and load the temperature on the home (default) screen when connected to wifi, but I have to turn off the wifi on my iphone, ensure I am connected to my cellular network, and switch between the “now”, “hourly”, and “10 Day” tabs in order to get the app to load information. It started doing this over a year ago. Initially I thought my Wi-Fi connection at home was just poor, but it turns out that I have the same problem connected to any Wi-Fi signal. I have also had this problem with 2 separate iphones. I occasionally delete the app and redownload it just to see if the problem may be a fluke, but I always end up with the same problem. This used to be my favorite weather app, but now I am exploring other apps because of my frustration with this issue. I still love the weather bug app, and in my opinion it has the very best radar maps of any app available. I just hate having to go through so many steps in order to get this app to function the way it is intended to. Please fix this!!!!!
  • Not accurate enough

    By Reenee17
    Sad to say, one year later, it's still not accurate for Loxahatchee, Florida. It is not reliable for folks who are attending sports events in our area, when alerts for lightening are necessary. Please fix this. I used to love this app, especially for monitoring storms and proximity of lightening. Unfortunately, it no longer has a base location close to where I live. The closest area is 12 miles away, and only tells me how many miles away the lightening strikes are from THAT area instead of from where I'm standing. I do live in a rural, unincorporated area, but even on WiFi, my current pinned location is not accurate. This is not helpful in monitoring lightening while I'm standing on the soccer field or out riding my bike in MY neighborhood. What is going on 12 miles away anywhere in Florida can be drastically different where I am standing. We were in the middle of a bad electrical storm right over us, and this app was telling me closest strike from another location 12 miles away and showed no immediate alerts. Very bummed. Others should be aware that some areas really are not covered, but doppler can at least give you an idea if a storm is moving towards or away from you. But any news channel doppler can also show you that.
  • Usually better than NWS or TWC apps

    By TeriMelissa
    I’ve been using the Bug since I got my very first iPhone. It zeroes in on my exact weather happening in the moment. There are many pinging spots near almost anywhere to give a good triangulation for my personal weather conditions within a few miles. The radar is easy to understand and accurate. The future casts are as accurate as I’ve ever seen ...and much better than even my 3 local meteorologists on tv. Even as far out as the 10 day forecast I know I can be ready for what may be coming. Where I live the weather is unpredictable moment to moment but Weatherbug stays on top of the quick changes. I love the storm tracker showing dangerous situations like nearby lighting and all severe weather threats. The UV rating, pollen counts and air quality reports are important to me as I am really fair, have severe allergies and asthma. The heads up to make sure I have the proper preventative meds/sunscreen make my outside time much more enjoyable. WeatherBug is an app I use daily; sometimes several times a day. I highly recommend it to everyone!
  • Not always dependable

    By HelpInWI
    I have loved the weather app up until recently. It has always been my go-to weather app. However, as of recently, the information isn’t always accurate, particularly the humidity! My husband and I have a battle over air conditioning vs open windows in our home over the summer. Again, last night, I wanted to turn the air conditioning off and open the windows. I always look at the app first to check the humidity percentage if I feel that the humidity may be too high because my husband HATES it being humid in the house. Last night Weather bug was showing a humidity of 5% which I knew wasn’t right because it felt a little humid to me outside. I decided to download 2 other weather name apps to see what their reading was and both were reading 83% which obviously seemed more accurate since it felt humid. 5% vs 83% is a HUGE difference. And, this is not the only time it has been inconsistent. Weatherbug, please fix this. I almost deleted your app from my phone but thought I would contact you about this issue first.
  • Back to Being #1

    By ProudPittieMom
    I have used WeatherBug for decades & told my family, friends & clients about it & we were all crazy about it. After a long period of being without WeatherBug on my laptop, I installed the app on my phone & I’m back to praising it to everyone who will listen! Somewhere along my path I became disabled & grew old. Unfortunately, either due to PTSD, fibro fog, chronic migraines or just aging my memory has been severely damaged. I know I started experiencing problems with the program before I had a cell phone & the next OS upgrade I did, I gave up on WB. I even went back to my ancient habit of calling the phone company for local temperatures. When I got my smart phone, the weather app was one of the first upgrades I looked for & I was so disappointed. Too many of the apps had advertising in them that was nothing more than a continuation of the “news” - just political foes bashing each other & I’m sick of that nonsense. I gave up & used the Apple app that was pre-loaded. Then, a few weeks ago while looking for a different type of app, there is WeatherBug in the list & it looked so appealing! I read through the info & dl’ed it & I’m so very glad I did. All the info I need or want regarding weather all in a great looking app. Within a week I had WB installed on my laptop again & I’m handing my phone to folks to check it out & they are installing it on their phones immediately. Thanks for a really useful weather app that’s once again my favorite!
  • Great weather app

    By Pzamz
    Got tired of the weather channel app getting slower and slower and taking forever to load and just scroll down the page so tried this and not only is it instantly quick, but put together with common sense. The location of the features were very well thought out and very easy and convenient to use. The pop up instructions are a brilliant idea. Love the fact that it has weather and traffic cams too, that i dont have to use other separate apps. Although it has news and videos the smart thing is they don’t load automatically, which i believe keeps the app fast. You have the option to start a video and that’s the smart way to do it. What’s killing the weather channel app is they don’t give you a choice and the videos run automatically slowing down the app to a crawl. Goodbye weather channel app, you just helped me free up a lot space too!

    I am with others who say the app has lost some reliability. Listen if there are some regions or areas you just can’t forecast accurately, say so! I’m in an area in the Blue Ridge Mountains of NC. 3 days ago, WB showed the weather in my area to be sunny with a a temp of 40 degrees. It was pouring down snow!!! I noticed Johnson County, MS in the left hand corner just above the temp. Are you telling me that the closest radar station to my location is in Mississippi?? All my other saved locations have weather stations in the general vicinity listed. As to the 10 Day forecast, I get it, weather changes, but wow! As others have said, it’s not reliable because it changes so much. You really can’t plan ahead, but it’s the weather. Ten days out may be asking for too much but at least be accurate at the moment and for the next 24 hours! I have had weather bug for a long time and it used to be very accurate. I’m not sure what happened, but please try to fix it.
  • Reliable and Accurate Weather App

    By TexasChuy
    The Weather Bug App is reliable, accurate and above all easy to use! It has several easy to find functions to see the weather in your area with accuracy because it uses several different weather stations in your city not just one downtown. My family all have it installed to use when planning their school or work day and looking ahead at the week. We also use it when going out of town. Again it has proven itself a awesome buy because even in other cities away from home the Weather Bug app has given us accurate and an easy to use tool to plan what clothes to pack for that trip. Every time it has been has spot on! I appreciate the effort and staff that keep this app updated and nearly ad free. A definite great app to have.
