Sub par at best.

I had storm for a very long time before this. Paid the $10 for it years ago. Loved it enough to move to the subscription service when they dropped that. I gave this a chance but I refuse to even pay $.99 for the ad free version of this. A few of the issues I have with this app: the touch location feature is horrible I find myself accidentally clicking a location while moving around the radar. The radar centric version with the expandable bottom banner was wonderful over this. Also, why are advisories different colors from the standard! This is probably the biggest complaint, I see a red box around my country and worry it’s a tornado warning... it isn’t. I miss the markups on the radar you could do on storm, you could measure the distance and use this to predict when the front would arrive. Used to love the storm tracks but now they just don’t mesh well, and guess what when I try and tap the storm track to get more information I end up changing the floater box location because it’s easy to accidentally tap a location on the map rather than the track. Lastly, the ability to use local radars was great! I loved being able to look at the velocity track and find the hook when there was a nearby tornado. All in all what was an extremely user friendly and advanced weather app has become another “simplistic” “pretty” ui for the masses, next they will push out an update to include a news feed like the weather channel.

Not as good as the original!

Fake 5 star reviews won’t get you anywhere, because we, the real users will set things straight. Plus it diminishes any confidence and trust in the app and company.

Developers, please listen to us! You say you welcome feedback but fail to implement anything to make it as good as the original storm. The new features are great but if you read all of our feedback, you will see that users like the original Storm better. In fact it was my only go to app for the weather. I liked being able to pick local radars, see the surface and jet stream winds and the simple, yet detailed storm tracker. Now the calculations are in meters. And it won’t change to full imperial, even though I have it set to that. Often there is a storm tracker symbol but no storm. The local storm reports are way off. Not unless I’m missing something here, I don’t see how a place could have hail or storm gust when there is no storm. These are from nws employees, trained spotters and other reputable sources. I’m sure the bugs and kinks are still being worked out.
Bottom line, if you would just combine the two apps, and go back to the original format Storm app, you would have the best, most powerful weather app there is. Which, by the way, I wouldn’t mind paying a one time ad removal for. None of that subscription junk. As human nature is, we want instant gratification at a decent cost and be done with it.
Keep up the good work and I can’t wait for it to be perfected.

Storm was better by far

The features in this app are ok, not as good as Storm, but ok. What makes this app so horribly bad, is that it constantly forgets that you have a paid subscription and shows you ads nearly every time you open it! Why am I paying for an ad free experience if I’m not actually getting an ad free experience?! Seriously, it happens so often that I wonder if the weather channel added this “bug” on purpose, to double dip! It’s gotten worse now that the “restore purchases” feature is gone. I now have no way to “remind” the app that I did actually purchase the ad free subscription!

If the subscription issues weren’t bad enough, the radar resolution is subpar, the app is slow to update, the weather info that hovers over the map is totally intrusive. Storm had it live in a collapsible window at the bottom of the screen that was easy to pull back up when needed without loosing your location. With this, you have to tap EXACTLY on the spot you want which is a problem with anyone who doesn’t have slender fingers (I certainly don’t). If there’s another way, it’s not anywhere nears as obvious since I’ve yet to find it.

As so many reviews point out, storm was infinitely better. I hope WU will add most of storms features to the WU app or maybe even bring it back all together! I would love to cast this app into digital oblivion.
