What's New in Version 1.10
It kept us safe during hurricane Irma
Hello. I just wanted to take the time to thank you for having such a wonderful app. I live in Orlando Florida. As you know we were just hit by hurricane Irma. I can't tell you how invaluable you app has been to us. We didn't bother watching the TV meteorologists because they tended to use dialogue that frightens you like catastrophic and imminent and deadly and huge etc... I guess you get the idea. We were already very upset about being in the situation. Listening to the news reports telling us how bad it was didn't make our mental states any better. I have lived in Florida since 1969. I know exactly how dangerous hurricanes can be. We took it very seriously and gathered provisions appropriate to the situation. But the reason I love your app is because I was able to pull it up as often as I wanted which was very often. I was able to see the exact path and most importantly read the national weather services updates every hour. I didn't lose power until the storm was only 70 miles away from us. By then, because of you, I knew how strong the winds were, where we were located in the storms path, what category it was and most importantly; that the odds of us dying were still conceivable; but highly unlikely unless a tornado hit. Peace of mind is an incredibly valuable gift when you are in such a dire situation. Thank you for creating the most amazing app. We will forever be grateful.
Best weather app of 6 or 7 I've tried.
I'll just say that I liked this app so much that within a day I went ahead and bought the ad free version. Just take a few minutes and familiarize yourself with the controls, once you learn them, the app is easy and powerful. Ad free is paid annually, but you get both the phone and pad versions with one subscription. My favorite weather app, I don't even use the other ones anymore.
Update June 25, 2017: Well, WU (Weather Underground) did away with the ad-free version of Storm in favor of their new WU app. That's a shame. I tried the newer app, even paid for the ad-free version, but it just doesn't compare to Storm. As much as I hate ads, I prefer Storm with ads over WU without ads. I wish they would go back to letting me pay to get rid of the ads.
(OK, never mind! I just tried what kcousins said, and it works! Pay for the WU app, then sign into Storm using your WU account, ads gone! 😄 Thanks, kcousins!)
No Ads....or else!
I have paid for, and have had the WU Storm app for over a year. As an app itself, wonderful-a little bit of a resource and battery hog, but it’s crunching a lot of real-time data, so that’s expected. This morning and without any notice from the developers, my subscription ended last night with no chance to renew. I am now unable to pay to remove ads moving forward The app is considered free. I am not interested. I am deleting the app as of right this minute until they come up with a structure that makes sense. It’s too bad that the developers did not have the foresight to account for people like me. It may seem like a small point, but our society is inundated with advertisements and I am willing to pay to NOT see them. Do not download this app if you don’t want to see advertisements-which take up at least 1/6 of the screen. Please consider rating this the same until they fix this, or discontinue the application completely. This review is a change from my original which gave it five stars-and now it gets one. It’s also too bad they don’t have decimal points for reviews. 😮😱💀!
