Customer Reviews

One idiotic error.

The app works pretty well. I’m not seeing the things being complained about in other reviews. For whatever it’s worth, I have an iPhone 6+. However, years after my first complaint, the app still has one basic error in elementary-school science.

The US does not and never did use the Imperial System. The Imperial System was developed in 1824, long after the independence of the United States, and it is not the same as the US Customary System, which is what the US uses. Both systems are based on the old English units that evolved in the middle ages from the units of the Roman Empire, but many US and Imperial units have different values, some substantially different, and they aren’t even always related to each other in the same way. A US Liquid Pint, for example, has 16 US Fluid Ounces, but an Imperial Pint (the Imperial System doesn’t have two different pints depending on whether it’s strawberries or cream that you’re measuring) has 20 Imperial Fluid Ounces.

This is stuff that you should have been taught along with percentages, and should have learned over again the first time you looked at the “Handbook of Chemistry and Physics”. (And if you’re unacquainted with the latter, how can meteorology seriously claim to be a science?)

Horrible and pathetic! Don't fall for the ratings!

I've used this app since 2010 and before that. back then forecasts were freakishly accurate and videos were cool. I don't even know what to say this app has become so pathetically inaccurate your better off licking your finger and testing the wind. Several times they have gone from 80% chance of rain to 20% chance then back to 80% again! Who's writing these forecasts?!! They need to be fired!! Several times it's rained when they said no rain or its been sunny when they said rain! Going to switch to another app after nearly 7 years of use! The videos are depressing, horrific, and sometimes disturbing there was one of a bald eagle attacking and killing a bunch of baby birds! Really that was one of them! I DONT WANT TO SEE THAT ON A WEATHER APP!!!!! The titles are misleading and often have nothing to do with the videos and are just to get you to click on an add! Do your self a favor don't use this app!
UPDATE: I'm now randomly warped to a random website every ( exploit) time I try to use it!!!
UPDATE: app continues to crash every single time I try to use it for more than 20 seconds. The app lags and freezes constantly but on the bright side the advertisements seem to load without issue!

Pop up ads now???

I've loved this app and has been very accurate. It crashed every now and then but with the pluses that doesn't usually bother me. I'm a weather nerd and geek out over being able to see the radar weather for the whole world! The videos used to be good and informational and I loved them, but now the majority are stupid and pointless with misleading titles. I was annoyed with this downgrade (seemed like they were trying to appeal to middle schoolers with these) but just decided to ignore these annoyances and continue to use the other great features of the app. However, today pop-up video ads started showing up all over the place. As I scrolled down the page to view weekly weather or the radar or what not videos pop up. Just now 3 popped up all at once while I tried to scroll to radar and I had to exit each one individually. Really, who likes these? What made you think adding them would be a good idea and would make people like your app more Now I don't even want to check the weather with this app. Please turn these off!
