Still not good

I thought I'd try it again on my new iPhone. I had purchased the Elite, a lifetime payment of $9, a couple of years ago. It located a city several miles away while other weather apps found a site much closer. The app took up too much space so I deleted it.
Well I gave it another shot. I followed the directions to put it in my iCloud. It didn't transfer to the new phone, and when I attempted to contact support and send feedback four different times. Their response? None. No response. What terrible customer service. The other weather apps that I've used actually answer a customer back.
I kept at it trying to figure out why the app wouldn't transfer and it didn't show up on my list of apps but did show up when I synced my old phone. I located an area on my library in iTunes for hidden apps, and re activated it. Now I could download and view it. What a waste of time! The same old problem of location and stick with pictures and videos. While they may be interesting I don't want them on my phone.
I did gain one thing in the whole process though. I found my hidden apps section, and I got Weatherbug off my phone again.
There are much better weather apps that gives accurate data out there. What a waste of my time and money!

Totally inaccurate

I’ve used WeatherBug Elite and it’s earlier versions for years. For some time now, I’ve been noticing that it totally missed the forecast. Since I was a longtime user, I just put up with the inaccuracies. Friends have used other, better apps and would often know better what the weather would do. Today was the final straw. The hourly presentation showed 0% throughout the day. No hint of precipitation anywhere the WeatherBug forecast. None. Of course it was pouring rain with lightning, thunder and pea-sized hail. No hint at all from WeatherBug. NONE!!! I was getting significant weather warnings from other apps, but WeatherBug was showing sunny with 0% chance of precip. If this was just one isolated incident, I’d blow it off. But this is the norm for WeatherBug.
I gave it two stars because the radar presentation is actually quite good. I spent 30+ years as a radar air traffic controller, so I know what I’m talking about. I’m also a commercially rated pilot. I have formal education and training in meteorology.
If the radar presentation wasn’t good on this app I’d permanently delete it.

My Favorite Weather App

I really like this app - I have the regular weather app on my iPhone and I have this one. The weather forecasting on weather seems historically to be more accurate. Also it gives me several features which I use regularly and have come to depend on: perhaps the most important of these is weather alerts from the national weather service regional service office. These alerts include things like winter storm warnings, high wind warnings, severe weather (hail) warnings, flood warnings, etc. it tells how far away the lightening strikes occurring in the last 30 minutes are. In the winter these are typically over 1000 miles, but in the summer they can be less than a mile. I like the radar view feature, the highway camera view feature, the detailed hour by hour feature. This is really a great app and I use it a lot! Many thanks to the provider!
