AccuWeather part of our Weather and have average installs from 100000 to 500000. Last Update Aug. 29, 2016. Google play rating is 84.4294. Current verison is Varies with device. Actual size 0 bytes.
Its not bad just missing a few details I wish the main NOW status had a few additional details like moon phase, sunrise and sunset times, etc. Nothing major buts its details found on many other apps this is missing on this.
Accuweather How does it go from okay to worse. Changes home location on its own, GPS coordinate town name is 5 states away. After three years I've had enough. By by
Don't like new minute forecast format. Much preferred the circle 2 hour timeline. New format totally annoying. Switching to Weather Underground, will check back occasionally to see if this issue gets fixed.
Android wear support is great... now if it was more reliable to pull up. More often than not it takes forever to pull info from my phone. May as well look at Google now... note 3 on 5.0 with a moto 360 on 5.0.2 update still no better with lollipop on note 3
Wish I could personalize more I don't like that I get certain notifications. I live on the coast so I get special Marine advisories or small craft warnings that mean nothing to me because I don't have a boat. I would like to have an option to not get these!
Almost perfect,... Accuweather has all the information the other apps lack, including weatherbug & the weather channel. The most complete weather app available,... I did remove 1 star, since it isn't sized to fit a larger screened device correctly. Please take care of this. It's perfect on my Note3, but horrible on my Nexus7 tablet.
The Weather Bomb! Still the Best weather app out there! Dropped a star because updates are too frequent, and require uninstall/reinstall to work. P.I.T.A!
Dropped my location I bought this app and a few weeks later it didn't get my location anymore, or anywhere near me. I can't even configure the data source service. It's has betrayed the paying user.
Loved it until it started crashing I loved this app but it does not work, stalls my phone and now I can't even get it to work and I paid for this app. Not cool
Good weather information - But very ugly and information lacking widgets. The accuweather now widget needs to be able to show me the weather "NOW" at all 3 of my set locations, as well as my GPS current location. I travel between Miami, West Palm Beach, and Orlando, Florida pretty often and need to be able to check the weather at these 3 locations from the "Accuweather Now" widget. The widget could change locations by tapping on the location shown.
Horribly inaccurate Rains when it says sunny, clear when thunderstorms are predicted. I can't trust it at all. Used to be better, I don't know what happened. Forecast does a 180 overnight changing entirely.
Great app. Needs better widgets Comprehensive weather data and forecast. For 5 stars, I would like a 4x1 forecast widget that shows the current temperature and forecast for next 4 days, with configurable background color and transparency. I currently have to use a different app for a visually pleasing widget.
Broken! Since the last update (3/17) the app will run fine for a day or two, then it will crash on opening even though it is still maintaining the weather stats on the notification panel. I have rebooted and cleared cache, but eventually I have to reinstall. Will send crash report. My goto app. I would like to have access to allergy and historical data; nothing fancy, just a set of graphs maybe. I like the layout - it gives the app room to grow without having to revamp, as shown by the new minute forecast.
Downgraded from 5 to 2 Had to downgrade this app. It gets nothing right: not my city, nor my Minutes forecast (12 miles away), nor the radar and rain forecast, and even the tempetatures are off by as much as 12 degrees. I don't get it: my map app knows my exact location as does my car's GPS. But both the apps on my phone and Samsung Gear S fail to be accurate. 2 for design and creativity. But needs to be accurate.
Love the Android App... Hate Android Wear app Android app is the best, but it makes no sense that it has to be open for the Android wear app to work!!! Android Wear app looks great but is not functional this way.... Dropped from 5 stars to 2.
Stopped working after Android 5 update Ever since the lollipop update came in, this app has not worked. The app will not start. Weird thing is the widget still works.
Getting more inaccurate, sloppy Today the daily temperature states high of 45 and the hourly temperature gets into the mid 60s. Really starting to get frustrated with this app, especially buying it.
Best Weather App I bought this app on sale since it was only 99 cents and I'm glad that I did! Best weather app out for android if you ask me. The emergency notifications saved me driving a few times... My favorite feature would have to be minute-cast since it can tell me how long it will be raining down to the minute. This app is worth a try if you are looking for a reliable weather app for your smart-phone. Works great on my Note4!
When it works its good I've had issues of this app freezing or not even opening at all. I've had to reset it on more than one occasion. Its lost my locations before as well with no notice. When it works its good information to plan the day most of the time. Needs more detailed information like dew point and humidity as well
Widgets! I expect better widgets than the mediocre attempt made here. You can definitely do better Devs.
LG R Wear connection broken Have an LG R and an Nexus 5 all up to date, and AccuWeather Platinum. AccuWeather does not work. Displays a sad cloud and the text Data Unavailable. I tried to look for a way to give feedback directly through the app on the phone but their wasnt a way. So I am leaving this bad review. If I get a word back or notice a fix and remember I will update.
Fairly good When an alert happens for the area, the dismiss function has no effect what-so-ever. Saved Location sometimes has a mind of its own, and changes. 2-hr forecaster sometimes useless. Like being rained on & accu just says cloudy, no rain. This app could be enhanced for better & I did $$ it.
Radar unreliable The radar for Vancouver has been the same for the last 6 weeks. I alerted AccuWeather about this several weeks ago but it has not been fixed. Makes you wonder about other radar images.... EDIT: Radar from SW Ontario is also completely wrong. Today (Aug 25, 2014) this radar shows very violent storms but the skies are clear. "Superior accuracy"??? Update 17 March 2015: no change!! Radar still with same incorrect images! Don't buy this app if you need radar!!
Excellent Weather App Excellent app and support. I had a problem finding my location, contacted support and had a reply in my inbox within minutes. Now everything works perfect again. I love this app and the accuracy of the info it displays!
Wonderful app ! Works excellent at my location. If it continues to work this well the whole neighborhood will be calling me for the forecast.
Better! I check it several times a day. Great app
Samsung NOTE 4 Your alerts have never been wrong? I would have gave it 5 ☆'s But I turned off notifications yet it still continued to pop up in my Notification panel,so I went to settings hit Stop now,soo now it keeps restarting frequently so I have to Boost it all the time so unfortunately I'm going to have to Uninstall it all together & hopefully this problem will be fixed at your end soon & then I can reinstall it in the near future.
Probably the best out there Tried several weather apps. 1Weather kept checking location all the time. Weather Bug ditched all the paid users and gives us ads. GoWeather looks nice, but the information is inaccurate and the radar is terrible. I keep coming back to AccuWeather though. Doesn't drain the battery, you can disable location updating, and the radar is great. Would recommend the interface get refreshed. Some people I know that used it didn't know it even had a radar feature until I showed them.
Good App but NOAA Hi - Def is better. Accu-weather's bells and whistles are nice but unnecessary for me. We camp frequently and NOAA's radar seems more reliable.
Does what it says BUT... ... Knocking my rating down to 1 star. As it stands, this apps functionality does not stand out from free weather apps. Make it Customizable! I will use another weather app that I can make compliment the COLOR and layout of my launcher. DEVELOPERS, please dedicate some creative resources to this. Be inspired by "Next Launcher" . I want to change the color and transparency of your widgets. I don't recommend this app because it does nothing that free apps won't do as well. I wasted my money on this one!
Nice app, ugly widgets. I like the app, it works great, I would like to be able to set update frequency and the widgets are just boring and ugly, would like a nicer material design for lollypop and be able to set clock app to the widgets time display when tapped on, like most other weather apps/widgets, also it's using a lot of battery power, as this is top of my battery usage.
Excellent forecasts Gives very accurate forecasts. My reason for taking a star away is that you can't type a location into the minute-by-minute and have it stick. I can put my address into the app, get the weather, close it. Open 5 minutes later and there is some random address that can be 15 miles away from me. It needs a way to tell it to keep the typed in location until you change it. Even turning off 'Locations' in Android doesn't help, still get random addresses! -- 04-13-2015 update -- after a few updates, it is getting worse, not better! The random addresses are now not even close. Why won't you let the customer put in an address that stays there? I really don't care about a rain alert that is 20 miles away! Please fix it - depending GPS when inside a building makes no sense.
Many things to work on. Fix your freakishly slow servers and internet download speed. One- minute response time is horrible. Just horrible. And don't miss my current location by 300 miles. That is dangerous in tornado season. And get a professional usability analysis by an accredited human factors program at a major university. Then we can talk. And stop nagging me to rate your app.
Slow/clunky/battery hog - needs an update Its still clunky/slow and often very slow to load & refresh. Biggest problem is it is frequently the 2nd or 3rd battery user in the android battery app - from what I can see it is frequently polling for the devices location and draining the battery in the process. Needs a refresh...feels dated. Lock screen widget distorted on moto x
Constantly crashing It was pretty decent, but now constantly crashes, error messages appearing every few seconds rendering it not only unusable but also my note 4 unusable while it's installed. Contacted them several weeks ago and got no reply. Obviously I expect a full refund which I imagine will not be forthcoming. Very poor.
Was Good, But Locations Problem Was a great app, very accurate with lots of useful weather information. But since the last couple of updates it can't find any of the locations that aren't a problem for other weather apps e.g. Bright Weather etc. So it's virtually useless for anything but my current location. I've uninstalled & given it 1 star as a weather app that can't find locations is unusable! Latest update still has the broken locations issue. If Accuweather manage to fix this issue, I'll reinstall & give it 5 stars.
Accurate and convenient Good weather app but sometime the current weather is wrong. It will be raining lightly or just cloudy/overcast and AccuWeather says "Thunderstorm". The temperature doesn't update as often as I have it set to. I have it set for 30 minute intervals but it doesn't update the temperature for over an hour unless I launch the app. I'd like to see a 36 hour forecast instead of the minute cast, it would be more useful.
Nice... Except for one very annoying thing... This is a great app, especially the paid version EXCEPT the continuing, annoying (I mean really annoying) "Network Connection" error that pops up every time you open it and further prevents certain features (weather maps) from working.
Awesome! Edit: after last update Accuweather won't launch. Just force close error immediately. :( Previous review: Love Minute cast! It's actually pretty accurate. App loads quickly. Most important info all on 1 screen. The font size is really small and condensed so it's hard to read. The notification bar temp is so tiny it's just impossible to read. Hope fonts will be enlarged in a future update.
Not bad I would give it 4 stars if the severe weather push notifications were more reliable and were able to follow my phone and not be limited to my home location.
Good The app is too heavy, slow. The UI is too old.
Good app but... Unless I'm missing something, it's lacking radar for my area. It would be nice if radar was a main part of the app. Add radar and I will give 5 stars.
Just worked before Jun 12. It's not feature rich, nor good looking. I paid for it's reliability. However, now it crashes > 80% of the times. Clearing up app data fixes it immediately, but starts crashing again after few days.
Good app This is a worthwhile and useful tool, except for the fact that the temperature on the "Now" screen always seems to differ from the reading on the hour-by-hour screen for the next upcoming hour, even if that's only a few minutes off. The difference is sognificant, on the order of 5 to 15 degrees F. Why is this, and how should we estimate the true temperature based on the two values? For example, right now at my location the "Now" reading is 87, but the value estimated for 1800 is 76F.
It's ok Not the best app. Doesn't have a screen display option, just an app shortcut. Really hate that I had to purchase it to not have annoying ads. Shopping for a different app quite honestly. The accuweather that comes on my cell is not very accurate or I'd just use it. This one is ok but not the best one.
Does not work on galaxy tab The free version was OK but immediately the premium version did not work. Get an error message to force close accuweather when I am using other apps. Glad it did not cost more. Update, still continues error message even with new galaxy 12.2 tablet. THEY ARE RIGHT! disable airplane mode and it works plus all the premium features...who knew?
2015-06-19 Latest version Latest version quit working after the update. Nothing but force close notices that don't close it. Long list of locations, still no way to save them! HTC EVO 4G 2.3.5 os. Paid version of AW.
Garbage Used to be good. Now just keeps saying "cannot connect to server please check internet connection". Well guys there's nothing wrong with my internet connection or else I wouldn't have been able to give you this lousy review. Fix your app!
AWKWARD THING The "Current Location" is STILL off by miles! Notifications are STILL NOT personalized. And, The Widget Will Not Load on my Droid Turbo! The developer's response is to uninstall app, shut off phone, remove battery, wait... reload battery, turn phone on, reinstall app...! Like, I didn't try that shiz before I reported the problem!?
Very inconsistent and inaccurate reporting. I wish there was an option to limit or disable GPS / location usage. (Would like it on while traveling, but don't need it constantly pooling in the background).
Well Worth the investment! I've been using the AccuWeather premium application for the better part of two years. It runs smooth on the older and also my new HTC one. I've never had any problems with lockups or with the application stopping. The street-level graphics and radar are spectacular. I opted for the premium version so I did not have to look at ads.
Notifications Broken I used to have an always on notification that showed the weather, but that feature is now broken. I still get the severe weather alerts, but I really want the notification back. Other than that, the widgets are beautiful and the app works well. I'll change my review back to 5 stars when the feature is fixed.
Mr Fonz Guy The app is slow to load. Since I paid for it and it looks a bit better in representation than others and no ads, I'm sticking with it. Developers. Maybe a bit better background check up to where you are...... Or better sync with the notification on task bar when loading main app....
A multiple units app A good app with accurate temperature notifications. As an improvement new and better weather pictures may be added to depict a typical weather situation.
Greg Severe weather alerts makes it one of the best weather application so far. When using with ice cream sandwich or Jelly Bean operating systems, deleting the standard version of accu weather required Samsung tech support. This app needs to have an (X) on the main screen or a (close) button. With both the Premium and free versions runnning the battery dead is a problem. Help was no help.
Secret tracking Immediately uninstalling this app after reports of how it is littered with tracking of personal info
Halfway there? Can't dismiss the warnings. Can't turn the status bar temperature on and off. "Support" is clueless. Otherwise, hows YOUR day going?
Tab This app is OK but does not cover many smaller towns in the UK only big city's that can be 20 plus miles away from the smaller town's, and as we all know in the UK the weather can be completely different 10 miles away, I think the app needs to allow a lot larger search area for smaller town's and even larger villages.
Broken updates Still doesnt work with wear...its been broke for at least the last 3 updates I'm running Android 5.1 and previously running Android 5.0.2, and the weather refresh doesn't work on the widget, nor does it work on my Moto 360, also running Android 5.0.2, It always says Data Unavailable. It used to work before I go the Android 5.0.2 update on my 360, but I don't think the widgets ever worked on Lollipop since I bought the app. I'm hoping that AccuWeather fixes this and pushes an update soon.
The map video needs to be slowed done to 10 minute or less, it's too fast and a too longer time frame
Always incorrect data Like most days looking at the weather with this app, the daily weather isn't the same as either the radar or hourly. Today for example we have strong thunder storms coming according to every other weather station, yet my daily weather shows mixture of clouds and sun but has a warning of storms on the daily weather main page, but the radar shows strong storms about an hour or two away. This app is always showing incorrect data. I saved all the screen shots if anyone needs them from the developer.
Best Weather App Accurate and easy to navigate. Very nice app!
Must have!! I work outside year round and btw the radar and min for cast I'm almost never caught unprepared & I own a note 4 if that mean anything
Follow me You will get a 5 star rating of you can add "follow me" feature rather than selecting where I am each time to see weather.
Best app so I paid for ad free. I like the GPS weather tracker. It tells you when the storm arrives at your location & when it's going to end.
Hard to love it when raining and SAYS NO RAIN 120 Sadly the application can not even tell you that it is raining outside, always saying that you will have NO RAIN, possibly to make you feel better about yourself, but it says little about what is going on outside or Sunrise or Sunset.
Not worth the price The widget is not updating, it's either blank, or gets stuck on the time
Bye AL Minutecast is superb, I'll set a timer and the kids think I'm magic. When dad's watch vibrates it'll be raining. 7 minutes later droplets. One of the first apps I download. Interface is simple, video of storms are easy to get to. Animations are smooth, battery doesnt take a noticeable hit.
Minute cast and maps App has been fairly accurate, Lately Minute cast will say rain for 120 minutes, but no rain at all, even in next 45 mints, moving map show location in center of storm, but nothing out side. Plese fix.
Fix it Now I remember why I left AccuWeather before. The app never loads and says I have a network problem. Guess what, I don't have a network problem because I'm posting this. Fix your freaking servers or don't bother making an app.
Buggy Waste of money! It would be a nice app if it did not need to be uninstalled and reinstalled constantly to make it function properly. Emailed customer support but they're fast reply was useless and did not address any of the problems.
Excellent weather app I've found the predictions to be VERY accurate. Very happy with it on my new G3. Just wish there was some 5x2 widgets for higher resolution phones such as a LG G3
Not accurate at all I've been using this for at least a year and a half and it's not accurate at all especially lately is been so off it says its not going to rain and then it is going to rain I have a job where I work outside I need to know ahead of time if it's going to rain or not and this thing has been letting me down I paid money for this and it's garbage I rather just watch the weather cha at least that's up to date and accurate don't waste your money don't even waste a free app to download it I'm finding something else
Accu Weather App used all the time and pretty much way better than the local news forecast for weather.
100% Complete weather conditions at your fingertips The weather app to have if you want radar of your area (and any other area), forecasts and timely updates of changing conditions. You can also have multiple cities listed that you can get weather conditions updates in a few touches- my GO TO weather app!
The Weather App Clean design, don't be so tight, pay the fee to drop the ads.
The radar maps I just wish the American and Canadian radar maps were stich ed together so I could tell the rain that was coming. Now I need to pick a U.S. city to see the U.S. radar then switch back to see if it's coming my way.
Current Needs a lightning detecter
Accunot Excellent app. Easy to use. However, accurate it is not. I'd be better off standing outside with my finger in the air.
Not Accurate Weather Sun shining birds singing app shows it's raining right now, minute cast states no rain for hours. No rain anywhere near. Hmm hard to call that accurate.
Locations All I seem to get is no location found needs updating urgently as all the locations work for ipad but not for android app.
New version not so good. Only one widget. Weather does not update temps unless you close the app and reopen. Be careful you may be looking at yesterdays temps and map!! No sunrise and sunset. Bring the old app back!
No wonder they call it AccuWeather The to-the-minute weather updates have saved me from being soaked in the rain many times. Good job AccuWeather!
Too many alert weather warnings every 5 minutes non-stop if you get it go to settings turn the warnings off I swear to God I'll drive you crazy Weather warnings every 5 minutes 24 7 you need to disable the warnings this is stupid one warning is fine I'm not a dumbass I understand one warning
Location Button On New Widget Now Missing & Widget Too Large The ability to switch area's location of interest in the new widget is gone. Why? User friendliness is out the window with this app. UPDATE: Now, for no good reason, all of a sudden the widget's size has practically doubled & can't be modified. Now it won't fit on the screen anymore!
This "new" version is receiving a well deserved s***-storm of negative comments. New layout is kind of pretty but it is also kind of empty. Most useful tools have been removed: -No more graphs -Hourly tab only displays temperature -No more "news" tab pointing to accuweather forecasts articles -"video" tab not pointing anymore on the full article -Only allows predefined locations, no more "my location" following the phone location. Also, it starts the GPS randomly and drains the battery.
"Unfortunately the launcher has failed," multiple times while trying to add my location. So now i have a paid app that I can't use. Support sent me steps for repairing on gingerbread and ics AFTER I explained I was on lollipop. Canned response, "new widgets coming soon." Just make the ones I have work.
Best weather app out there This app is one of the best designed I have ever used. The UI is great and the app is packed with information. More importantly the information is very accurate.
Getting worse by the day I used to love this app. It was by far my favorite weather app. Now I more or less tolerate it. The latest version made everything all bright white and bland. There's no option for a dark theme. I don't like the overall layout of the app any more. To top it off, in the last couple days, aspects of the app have been disappearing. Literally. The night time weather details disappeared yesterday. Today the minutecast disappeared. I paid for this app, so I don't want to delete it, but I may have no choice.
A Must Have Weather App!! This is the greatest weather app I've found. It provides real time alerts and very accurate weather reports, and never crashes. The notifications option allows me to see current conditions without actually opening the app. A must have for those that check weather conditions frequently.
new version problems... Temp never seems to be right... I get two different readings. The notification bar says one thing and the app says another. Not sure which one to believe... I am thinking neither are correct. Have had app for probably 4 or 5 years and was the best... Getting ready to change now... so sad
Before & After Update My Review of Update in 2016: SAME as 2013! Still the best, cleanest weather app. My Review in 2013: Bought the premium version when I read reviews of it 2 weeks ago for Nexus 7, and was on sale $1.99 (now $0.99). The recent update to it (3.0.1) with new look and feel...and variable widget size...makes this one of the best apps I have purchased to date. Accurate, tons of info, incredibly displayed weather.
Material design, whatever that means App just asked me if I liked the material design, I touched yes. Only then did it ask me to review here. I don't appreciate that AccuWeather us trying to engineer more positive reviews. Work on improving the app instead!
Hate new crap I want the old app I paid for. There's no way I would pay for this version. Everything about it is ugly. Widget is ugly, I preferred the pretty dark blue one. If I'm paying for something it shouldn't appear to be created by a high school dropout.
Needs update to fix issues... Want "REFRESH" back PLEASE. After using for few days after last update, temp is not correct or refreshing as it should. The dark widget is using extreme amount of ram 456MB right now on OnePlus 2, ran great till last update. Gonna have to use another app till the next update, which I'm not happy about since I'm using the PAID version... Please fix soon!
Seems they've fixed the issues I had with an earlier version. The only feature that I find missing is the ability to get weather for someplace without having to add it as a normal location.
Not perfect but still great! I've been using this app for a couple years now and it's still my go to app. Like I said, it's not perfect and sometimes crashes on my device but the weather is accurate and the app is responsive when navigating the menues.
Wait for it... wait for it... wait for it... My favorite weather app but the radar takes forever to load and lacks storm track and warning overlays. The kicker is the brutal startup time. I now use other apps in conjunction to get my info faster. It would be nice to set the order of tabs and which was the home tab. What happened to the 4x1 widget?
Stopped working after Android 5 update Ever since the lollipop update came in, this app has not worked. The app will not start. Weird thing is the widget still works.
Worse than the old version 1. Poor information visualization. In the older version at least there were line-chart which easier to read. If some customers love to see only numbers, give us an option to switch them! LOOK at the weather app on Windows 10 if you have a PC! 2. After the big Material Design update, your "Accurate" started to go crazy. I frequently (even right now) saw something like current weather is snowy, and the Minute Cast says the snow will start in 20 min. Guess what, it's sunny here.
New version is AWFUL! DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME! This latest version is nothing but a link to their webpage. They have RUINED a perfect app. The idiots who created this should be fired along with whatever moron at your company who approved its release. If its not changed back to an actual app, i will be requesting a refund.
Explicitly declared feature does NOT work These words are copied from the app description: "Status bar on the home screen displaying the current temperature for your current or home location." Alas, it simply is NOT true. There's no option for current location in Ongoing notification settings. Sad. Still no graphs in the latest update. I kinda feel funny about buying a great app days before it was stripped off features I needed and wanted to pay for.
Was five star until up grade! What have you done. New up grade I don't think so lost features such as graphs, cannot customise your own weather alerts, or customise the units. Extended forecast shorter! Looks and feels like the first version of the app not an up grade. This is for the paid app. Very annoyed may uninstall after 4years use.!
Terrible redesign I loved to be able quickly glance at the graphs to see temps for few hours ahead. App lost the only functionality I was actually using :| would definitely not pay for what it is now :/ another thing is shows different temps on phone and tablet. Sometimes it's just 1°C, other time even 5°C. How come!?
STILL NO landscape view please fix Three updates and still no landscape. One one widget and it looks awful. Well now there is one more that is dark but just as ugly. Font size in app too small to read. And worst of all can't go landscape anymore. I have this on a mounted tablet and it is now worthless
Accurate Find the app very accurate. But recent changes have put the app back. Problems opening some forecasts since update. Wish app would look better, images, night mode, etc. Personally find the current format very dull and unexciting. But it tells me the weather and guess that's what's for.
Love Minute Cast This is the nicest weather app I've used of the several I have tried. Enough information to be helpful without being overly complicated. I especially enjoy the Minute Cast feature, which gives precise precipitation forecasts for the next 120 minutes. Really helpful when deciding whether to ride my bike to work!
Excellent layout, accurate, easiest to use, great they keep improving the app. Very happy
Accuweather platinum Very helpful for up to date information and breaking changes in the weather. Enjoy all the animation and videos .
Great app gone bad! (2/11/16 Lose four stars for version 4.1. Missing video forcasts, widget looks like the label for generic beer, inefficient use of space. Four steps back.) Provides all the weather information I need. The widget is great for checking current conditions at a glance. Also the severe weather alerts alone are worth the price.
Better wind? Yes I like this weather app alot the only thing I would ask if they add some day is better wind numbers you can't tell what the winds are going to be for the whole day as with other apps
Pointless Update Stops working 9 times out of 10 so pretty useless really. Shame because I really liked it before.
Poor. Preferred original app New review LOLLIPOP- Empty. Bland. Don't think its as accurate as before. The symbian black version looked awesome and was highly accurate. Cumon folks. Back to your roots please. OLD REVIEW FROYO - Might be better at higher releases. On froyo 2.2 its not great. SYMBIAN Awesome accuweather app on the nokia phones n97 e7 symbian. Used to be good. Why did they destroy it?
Falls short Would like to have access to daily normals and to text stories as well as videos, as in older versions.
Now works great MinuteCast (2 hour outlook on precipitation) is accurate and useful. App works better than before.
DON'T UPDATE! "Streamlined" And "Simplified" Mean "Not As Good." Material Design Is A Bore. I installed the lastest, "simplified" version of Accuweather on my tablet. I kept an older version on my Smartphone. The look and features of the older version are far more preferred. Gone are the graphs and colors that provided great detail, and temperature and precipitation comparison. Gone is the readily-available minute-by-minute precipitation wheel. (You have to hunt for it.) Accuweather seems to have forgotten (or doesn't care) that most users are visually-oriented. This app is bare-bones and BLAH.
Great redesign but not perfect Love the new design, very accurate weather as well. One gripe ... The ongoing notification can only show a specific location, not my current location. So i get beautiful and accurate weather for a location where I am not... otherwise awesome.
Number one weather ap! I have tried several weather aps and there are none that can match accu-weather. It definitely is my go to ap. The only shortfall is the radar...improve that and I can delete all of the other weather aps. New ap is still 5 stars. Really love the new improvements and is still my go to ap for weather. Deleted the rest of my weather aps.
it got better It's well designed, relatively accurate as far as weather forecast goes which I understand but what I don't understand is why can't you guys get the minute cast model to work better? Right now it says no rain over my neighborhood for 120 minutes and it's raining heavily with no clear skies in sight and this is Chicago Midwest and it's flat so your eyes can see far. For the most part minute cast is a gimmick. Edit: minute forecast seems to have gotten better.
Highly inaccurate app Wasted money for this paid version. The free version seemed more accurate. Inaccurate information, the app keep changing statistics exponentially. No logic behind how weather can change from -2 to 13 and back to -8 within few minutes interval. Money waste app!
No longer as accurate as it was Cloudy description rubbish it's been steady drizzle for hours , yet a description of Rain now in the App even though Minute cast still says Cloudy , then to add insult to injury it forcast Rain in 60 minutes when it already is ! ?
GPS running constantly? Why do you need to have high accuracy GPS running the entire time the app is open/on screen? Update: This is still happening after another update. Why does GPS have to be running the whole the time the app is in foreground? Love the new look, but the latest TWO app updates are fails. GPS issue is a big negative.
No current location on status bar This app requires that you have a favorite location which I would think most people would set as their home. I commute so my current location is more important than home, so why can't I put that on my status bar? I'll reinstall this when it actually works and doesn't just say it in the description.
Poor accuracy The free version was better at giving me closer to accurate temperates and this paid version doesn't even have my suburb. Going to be 30C today by all other sources and this says 25. Not good.
Why not allow for light/dark theme? Not everyone likes bright and white layouts. Also, Please revert the persistent notification to how it used to be (black). Or at least have an option. The white looks terrible with my black, oled battery saving theme. Finally, Android Wear displays "Data unavailable" for over 2 months now.
Features removed, no communication from them There is no longer an option to have the ongoing notification follow my location. I have tried contacting them several times to no avail. I have had other issues that I have tried contacting them about as well, no response. A lot of the app is good, and I would probably accept these issues if they would only just respond to me. Thus, they get one star. A developer that doesn't communicate with their paying customers shouldn't be allowed to develop at all.
Outstanding This app just keeps getting better and better Outstanding app works very well in my area I do depend on it and it has not failed me
No longer nice Used to be simple and easy to read and was a nicer design. Not very nice anymore. Still good app but not very nice layout anymore.
Good app, but needs a couple improvements Really good weather app, but you cannot remove locations once you have added them. I add a city when I go there for vacation, but then I have to see it in my location list forever. Bummer. Also on my Samsung Nexus, the widget keeps disappearing from my home screen. I've had to add it back three times now.
bad upgrade No longer has temperature graphs and on-going notifications don't support current location; it's more like a downgrade really...
New design is awesome. I liked this app before but the UI felt a little dated. The latest upgrade in design is great and makes it top on my list again. Solid app, always accurate and now very visually pleasing.
Used this app for years. Now I can't open it Find myself stuck on the opening screen and not going anywhere unless I either uninstall or and reinstall or clear cache memory each time I need to open the application. Please fix. Verizon Note 5 (stock Android)
I have used this app for years 3/7/16 - I love the new layout. Very easy to use. If possible, it would be nice if you could add the ability to let us set which notifications we'd like to see. I get Small Craft Advisory notifications frequently but am not a boater, yet there is no way to turn them off. Thanks!
I use this app on all my devices and haven't been disappointed. Highly customizable, accurate, and comes with various widgets. Ohhhhh, and I almost forgot my favorite thing about it, notifications! - I gave the "Fifth Star" back for new design of the widget. Everything works as it should now. Material Design integration is flawless, and let's be serious, why waste time with something that doesn't work and look excellent. There's always an app waiting to replace something that isn't working flawlessly ??
Widget, much improved Widget used to crash/not update but it is working very well now. As well as it is prettier! All the information you need as well, hourly forecast, realfeel, wind speed and sunrise/sunset times on top of the regular information. I am a runner who likes running outside and this app helps me make a more informed decision on when i should run
Not great on an S4 I know my phone is old, but the newest version of this app has a few bugs on my Galaxy S4. If I turn on my location services, the Accuweather app constantly refreshes and finds my location instead of refreshing more periodically, so it drains the battery incredibly fast.
On going notification limited On the widget I can have it use my current location, but the on going notification is limited to a select city. Please fix this. As well the severe weather notification can not be set to my current location either......this is dangerous!!
Not always exact but best I've seen It's hard to be perfect but this app is pretty close. Only problem I kept checking the hourly and it showed rain at 4pm but it had already been raining since noon non stop...
Improved after this update! Didn't like the last update, but it's now improved. I still miss the old layout, though.
Limited info Where's the wind speed???? This app only shows you the current conditions for wind speed nothing looking forward... very disappointing. I would give it a one except that their MinuteCast for rain is very handy.
Used to be a great app. Not any more. With the recent updates, even in the paid version, this app has become unreliable and inconsistent. The temperatures and weather shown in the notification bar, widget and app often disagree significantly. I can't trust this anymore and will be uninstalling. Pity.
It was a good app until update Old good widgets replaced with new one, which often show 'null' instead of temperature, sometimes it's crash on my phone and cause launcher to restart on a tablet. Bring back old version! P.S. I can provide some debug info if you contact me.
Newer format not as good for looking ahead. For more info takes you to website where there are ads. Which is not what I paid for. Should have just kept the free app. Overall good with the forecasts.
I Like The App Very Much But I feel compelled to do what I can to foment a backlash against the rating nags. Especially the socially engineered ones that nag you extra in an attempt to weed out unhappy reviewers. Let me live 5 minutes of my life without someone trying to deceive or manipulate me for their own benefit. Especially after I already paid what you ask for the app. Please. Hire marketing people on your own dime and let me do my thing unencumbered on my own time. I already have a job. Thanks for listening.
It's my- "Dream Weather App," it just which I really need to fly my plane. Can somebody explain why it's gotten so slow?It's like going from
Ugly and search doesn't work properly The material design update is ugly and boring. There is less functionality now then there was when I paid for the app. Basic features like adding a favourite location via search doesn't work properly as it only lets you choose very major towns and cities; not very accurate! Bring back the pretty animations and backgrounds too.
Won't listen to feedback Obviously not listening to valid criticism people are providing towards the new version. Support is only providing canned responses to complaints, 9 full days after opening the ticket. They only responded with said canned responses after setting an ultimatum of reply, or that I'd post about the delay here.
No Access to Health Forecasts from within the app??? I've tried everything, but can't find a way to access Pollen Forecasts, Healthy Heart Fitness, etc...my solution is that I have made a bookmark in my internet browser to the Health Forecasts page on the AccuWeather website. In order to get a complete forecast from AccuWeather I have to use two different apps. Why own AccuWeather Platinum, if I end up having to just use the internet browser to get my forecast from the more complete FREE website anyway? This stupid inconvenience is why only three stars.
Great Weather app. Worth the platinum Good weather.. It is really accurate. Good minute cast and detailed weather all the way out on the forecast with AccuWeather premium level accuracy. Really love it. Works on marshmallow really well. It does. It wake the devices it does its task whenever all the apps are doing it which saves a lot of time and battery life
Updated review for updated version Old version was pretty good. But some geniuses decided to update it. Now, the ongoing notifications give data not for where I am, not for my hometown but for the city where I was when I installed the app (which is somewhere I have zero interest). And I can't even change it. Really annoying. I contacted the support what they said is they temporarily discontinued that feature and bring it back in the future. Sometime in next century, I assume. Save your time and money and go for the ones working better.
Dislike the new version The new version doesn't allow you to save current locations like the previous versions did, I have both the regular and premium versions so disappointed that I can't save local positions vital if you are in the mountains or the coast as a location in the system may have totally different weather to a few miles up the road. Conditions change rapidly so please bring back the capability of saving current locations. I rated the app as 5* before the change.
Ridiculously Accurate Weather If an app says it's going to rain in 30 min and it does, that's a lot better then watching the news and them telling you "There might be a slight chance of rain, about 50%" (really?)
Very Good No weather app is perfect any more than the weather, so I use several to check against each other. AccuWeather has several useful features, like extended forecast and rainfall minute-by-minute projection. I rate it at 4, not 5, because I prefer a different formatting. But I highly recommend this app for what it does well.
Would like option to add current location I'd like to be able to add the current location to the list of locations. Search doesn't find every location I want to add... I'm not sure why this is, but being able to add the current location would help greatly
It's the simple things. The interface is still a bit of a mess but thank you for listening and at least adding a dark theme and pull down refresh. How did such simple things ever get left out?
Very helpful would be nice if you can have more options for severe weather alerts instead of one but keep up the good work.
Love the new dark theme, widgets need to be fixed. Great app, but widgets need a fix. Top and bottom text lines cut off when widget is at its normal size. This happens on all my devices.
Love the new app Totally deserving of my three bucks. Thanks a ton and keep it up. Widgets need a bit of work though. Some opacity options would be nice. Maybe a slight shadow, like y'all use on the cards in your app.
Accuweather platinum Very comprehensive and detailed; very straightforward presentation of information; very useful. The data and alerts for multiple locations are of greatest use to me. It is easy to navigate the app quickly. The links to the full site also work well when I need greater detail.
Ehh It's twice as big as it was. Not sure if I'm going to like this version. Why does the data folder have to be out of the Android folder? - However, the radar is nice.
Good work Speaks for itself.Dont get Apps that are boosters,cleaner,any internally program data in your device you have one built in devices.
Very Helpful I love the new dark theme. Visual trouble makes the bright one hard to read. The dark theme provides a great contrast. Thank you. Hourly temp vs. real feel helps me make sure critters are safe inside or outside!!
Love the new automatic theme switcher! Temperature on the horizontal crossbar on the daily section is target pointless, but in the hourly section it makes good sense. Still, allowing flexibility over either temp and precipitation in both is a good thing. The horizontal swipe on the crossbar needs tweaking as it is very easy to initiate a refresh action of the whole page. Would love a manual refresh option in the rainfall map. Videos sadly comprise of mostly US stuff. Overall, great update. Just don't overdo it. Still doesn't show in Google Now!
Absolutely Beautiful & Simple Weather App! This app is beautiful! It's Descriptions make it simple to know what the weather will be like ("Mostly Sunny Afternoon, Maybe Showers Tonight") -- Downside; Fonts must be bigger! Temps in Days/Hours Charts hard to read, even on my 6.3" screen! The Temp in the Status Bar is tiny! 1/3 of the size it should be! I keep another app installed, to use its Statur Bar Temperature Notification, so I can actually read the Temperature in the Status Bar! Widget font also too small! Fix = 5 Stars!
Good but one grudge. This app is by far the the best weather app. The new features are spot on and are very intuitive. One thing I don't understand is that why can't the ongoing notifications have an option to show just your current location and not a saved one? I want to glance at my notification bar and see the weather automatically for the current location as per my location. Other than that, great job.
I really want to like this app, but.. Everything about this app is likeable, the latest update brought nice features but as with previous versions when the storms are coming I regularly lose updated radar images and sometimes all radar images.
Temperature Always wrong Temp wrong, hourly never correct. Well finally a dark them that is easy to read. Still not accurate and I don't want GPS on. I know where I am at.
Love the update Love the new update with the dark theme but most of all the pull down to update function. That was MUCH needed. The only quibble I have now is the play button on the map can be hard to press. The best app just got better!
New update It is great except you removed the storm's movement. The little bar at the bottom does not move smoothly so I can accurately see what is happening. I liked better when it moved in one continuous movement. Is there a way I make the little bar at the bottom do that? Ok. I found the problem, the little arrow is too small for people with fat fingers to hit perfectly. Make the whole box a little larger. Thank you.
Everything you need, elegantly. Great app. No complaints. GPS station location is still a 1/2 mile off (meaning home is a manual selection), but close enough. The new design is great!
Much Awesome! This is substantially better than AccuWeather has ever been. Very impressed with this update, especially the dark theme (yes!) and the addition of graphs. I am impressed. Awesome update! Five stars. I'm even cool with the small AccuWeather logo on the bottom of the screen, nice touch.
Solid in Black The added dark mode now makes this the best weather app that doesn't require a monthly subscription. Thank you!
Needs some work After update when it's opened it tells you to turn on location I don't need this it's works fine without it Be nice to have the refresh option back. Thanks
Sweet Update Easy to use and understand with a great new look.
Worse Now it tells me to turn on GPS EVERY SINGLE TIME I open the app! Why!!? I have saved locations and GPS turned off!! Still hideous icon and widget. Devs took 6 months to restore dark theme.Very slow to fix issues **4.2.2-paid
Slowly Improving with Updates My device came with the AccuWeather widget that you can refresh upon touch (to "current" conditions), & detect your precise location, as well as has scenic graphics depicting local weather. This "Platinum" version's different & limited widgets, are all what I would consider a downgrade to what I already have, especially considering the simple comparison of accuracy. The current radar imagery refresh rate is needing improvement. This is particularly relevant during threatening weather. :-|
Updated Review - They listened! Previously said: Need to overhaul the look and improve graphics. They did! Much better.
Awesome Most accurate. Love the black theme. And best one out there.
Like the new design. But, where's all the features I had? I bought the Platinum now its basic
Back in black Latest update brings back everything that was missing plus a dark theme. Graphs are back as well as the tabbed interface. You no longer have to tap different screens to get to the hourly and daily forecast. All in a very nice material design.
Real world needs To the point, fast , with all the info you need. Love how fast it loads. Good detail graphics on the maps. Best I've found so far.
Best Weather App This is probably the most intuitive weather app that I've ever used while providing a lot of information. Includes current location as default and saves the first location as a favorite. As far as accuracy, I could not pinpoint other than it seems to be correct. Clean and easy to use. I would recommend trying this one over any others. One thing I do not like is the widget. Would like a smaller, simpler widget like the phone's built in one.
Finally a dark theme, but.. I appreciate the dark theme, but it needs to be pure black instead of a slightly off-black (blue/gray).
App works great, forecasts are laughable For ex. Shows "now" = sunny at my location. It 100% clouds. It's own satellite map shows solid clouds for 200 miles.
*****EDIT**** It has been a while since I revisited this review. The AccuWeather app has been working much better with the Android app.
Missing features I like the dark theme. I wish the charts would be more condensed and use lines instead of bars. Having to switch back and forth between temperature and precipitation seams unnecessary as those could be simply merged within a single chart or at least placed one above the other. Also, the app is missing landscape mode for phones.
My new favorite app Finally someone put together a functional weather app. Thank you
Accuweather rocks Great app that actually listens to customer feedback. Thank you for the dark theme.
Bring back the previous version Since the update (which looks nice) the data has not been accurate. The "past radar" doesn't end at current time and the "future radar" doesn't start at the current time. When viewing "rain will start in x minutes" it doesn't seem to be for my favorite town nor even for a nearby area/region. Get with the program and bring back the previous version which worked quite well. Accuweather isn't, with this version.
Not as good Your new UI Changes are no where near informative as the old more user friendly version. This was a 5 ? ? ? ? ? app previously. Now it is only 3 ? ? ? in my opinion. Samsung Galaxy Note 4 running Lollipop ? 5.1.1. UPDATE: Giving it 4 ? ? ? ? s now since a dark theme was added. Also my devices have been updated to Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge and LG GPad X 10.1
Looks nice This is one nice looking app, love the swiping on the daily and hourly tabs. The map looks nice now shows future cast. Still needs improvements but nice.
Love the updates Finally! Restoring the temp/precip graph and the dark theme brought me back into the fold. This is again my favorite weather app. Thanks, AccuWeather team.
Don't like the newest update ? I have used this app for several years and loved it and gave it 5 stars. I hate the newest update. The screens are way too busy - too much stuff all over! If I'm looking for weather information i just want that - I don't need comparison charts (ie. temp vs real feel) and all the other unnecessary "STUFF" all over the screen. I would like to go back to the pre-update version!
Worth paying for, just to have an ad free weather ap. But, more. It's actually one of the best weather apps I've used. Nice design look and feel. Performance is great too, and I really like the dark theme. One request. The built in weather functionality in my Note 7 I'd driven by AccuWeather, so it would be great if this ap recognized that and replaced it. Right now Samsung links the edge app to the ad version or worse yet, the web version of AccuWeather. Please tie in and replace the stock aps.
Good but needs some attention This is a pretty good app but it needs a couple things to be a great app. It needs a "follow me" location selector, need s way to personalize the notification chime (so I can tell if it is a text or weather), and the sunrise/sunset should be in the NOW details and not buried under the daily details of a different tab. Fix that and it would be great. Oh and maybe pay attention to you customers?
Best weather app Layers for current/future radar & satellite in the map tab, able to input multiple locations to keep a weather eye on family in other cities, and weather for my location for the next 3 hours. Alerts helpful but maybe they could be prioritized better. I got an alert about flooding beginning 2 days from now hours before I got an alert about the tropical depression/storm causing it. Maybe better to issue together? Still the best weather app out there.
The wonders of weather explained Just like many other people have said I have tried many different types of weather Apps even the almighty Weather Channel and Accuweather is just hands down the best thing going. My advice is to stop wondering if you should pay for this App and just pay up you won't be left with a bad taste in your mouth. Update: still a great app
Radar is worthless, can't update it, and always 10-15 minutes behind Can't add my own home address, keep trying to put me in another country or Pennsylvania. Radar is never current, always at least 10 minutes behind current time. It's useless for where I live. Can't see the severe weather conditions until they are already past me. Why can't they have real time radar? I'm paying for the premium quality app!
Add back the "follow me" feature Hello, Can you please add back the "follow me" feature so the weather is updated in what ever area or city I am currently in on my notification bar on the top of my phone? It always says the weather for Saint Paul Minnesota which Is fine when I am there. But I am not always there. Right now I am in Amery Wisconsin and my notification is telling me the weather for Saint Paul, however I can see currrent conditions but have to physically open the app and go to it. Why would you guys ever get rid of that feat
No sunrise/sunset A friend recommended this app and I HATE ads, so I stupidly went for the paid version, but this is a lame weather app and I regret buying it. It lacks sunrise/sunset data, which I need to know DAILY (along with tides). The radar page is okay, but the lack of sunrise/sunset data kills the utility of the app for me and actually provides LESS info than the, "News & Weather," app already on my phone.
Good app Widgets are useless. Since they have no clock they can't replace the stock Clock/Weather widget and the stock widget still links to the nasty ad supported Accuweather site not the premium AW site I paid for. THE WIDGETS ARE BUTT UGLY TOO. There needs to be a better variety. The app is pretty good otherwise, once it is open.
Used to be 5stars but updates killed it I have been using this app since the first Galaxy S2 came out. Then the S5 and now S7edge. Since the update in May small towns that I regularly visit are no longer available on the S7 version. But are on the Tablet. Plus Mount Ruapehu, Whakapapa Village, Iwikau Village, Ohakune, National Park Village are no longer available. Also my tablet gets Chateau Tongariro which is the name of a hotel instead of Whakapapa Village. All of these showed on all versions of the Android app pre May 2016. I like this app but
Notifications Still Show When Off This app still shows me notifications about random events I don't care about even with all notifications turned off. It's kind of ridiculous that I paid $2.99 for this app and it still wants to bug me several times a day. If I want to know about a tropical storm in a state nowhere close to me, I'll look it up. Don't push it to me.
Can't get any better I've tried many weather apps and, without doubt, this is the best. Multiple locations available, accurate... my one (minor) gripe is lack of additional themes. But 5 stars is thoroughly deserved.
One update ruined the app The best features of the app, i.e. the line graphs, is now gone. Update 1: they added bar-graphs which is not as easy to digest as line-graphs used to be (as in the original design before the major redesign of the app). Not a very smart move for sure. I had to revert to version 3. I don’t recommend version 4.x till its UI mess-up is addressed.
Hyper Localized I check the weather before I go hiking so I don't get my phone , ipod, fitness tracker, or headphones wet. Found many apps to be unreliable, inconsistent and inaccurate. So far, this is the only app that has not rained on me. You get accurate weather predictions for your exact location, unlike 30% chance somewhere in the state, later'ish. That's the point right?
Used to LOVE it! While I really like some of the the updates, please bring back a WIDGET WITH THE TIME! I have emailed and posted here with no results. This is a PAID APP with no one caring what we want. FEB 2016. Automated response, they are working on this . Aug 2016 STILL NO RESPONSE OR FIX TO THE ISSUE. I bought this FOR THE WIDGET and they took it away! WHY? Bring it back! Sept - STILL WAITING FOR THAT WIDGET BACK!
Pretty useful app, but...ADs and poor customer service for a paid app is unacceptable! It supplies pretty good weather info, but a paid app should contain zero ADs, and this one has one at the bottom, which takes up a large percentage of space on my phone especially! Also, I have sent several messages with questions and have NEVER received a reply!
Please Help I had the free version which was very good. It had a list of places I regularly visited and all the details were there. It just vanished and was replaced by very basic version with information for only about 5 cities in the whole of South Africa. I then paid for and downloaded the platinum version and still have the same problem. What must I do? Please help!
Unfounded notifications One thing I can not stand is apps that send notifications after I turn them off. Especially if it's to remind me to check the "minute cast". Please don't clog up my notifications I care about with this kind of thing
Why no text stories, just video? I do not like a lot of things such as minute by minute not ever accurate, or the radar map made harder to move and zoom in from the previous design. But the lack of text stories and the replacement by video-only stories is a downgrade. Why does everything have to be video? Some people DO like to read. AccuWeather has downgraded again. Give me text stories back.
No change despite ridiculous information On one page it says no precipitation for at least 120 minutes but on another page it says showers within an hour. I have highlighted this before but nothing is done. Form your own opinion .......
Still Missing 1 Thing AccuWeather has really improved their app but are still missing a key feature, to me at least, and that is health and allergy information. This is critical to many people, me included, in order to live a healthy life. Thanks.
4 star app & decided to pay for it Have used on PC (free ver) for years. Have installed on every portable device, pads & phones(Win, Droid...) UPDATE 8SEPT16: No more minutecast -1 star. May try the 99¢ app too but this app has known usefulness. I have had issues with looping sat-radar on portables free app. May put update- revised some complaints that free app had better accuracy? HTC 10 ONE M9 ONE M7 LG Gpad, iPad mini.
Getting worse App stopped updating forecasts, on both my devices. Suggest you just use their website, or find another app. They also don't care about their reviews. Also their widgets are terrible.
Very well done! Go pro, it's worth it. Lots of info and very useful. The well done user interface has a great layout and is easy to navigate to all features with subtle but excellent graphics. Finally they added a dark theme for the app which is fantastic and is easier on the eyes. I bought this app over 4 years ago and experienced it go from good to horrible to ok to good and now excellent!
My Go-To weather app ETA: Got a newer, better phone and have no worries. Maps load much quicker. Apparently it was my phone that was the problem, not the app. Very happy customer, here!
Best one out there App works great for almost everything except the NOW screen. I broke my HTC One and had to get something new. I got the LG g3 and the NOW screen does not format correctly to fit the screen.
Got app issues? Paid or not, they won't help you, save your money. Used the app for years, even though it slows down simple phones and tablets a lot, then got a Galaxy tablet. App never worked again, I've asked for help thru app tech support for two years now, and not so much a reply. If you get it to work, keep it.... sadly it remains the best weather app out there.
Not so handy! Would be much better if it displayed the local time of the city too, also you cannot swap between locations to be displayed on the widget. Little bit disappointed. Other than that it's juts another weather app.
Maps - bad download order The rest of the app is great, but something I want fixed ASAP is the download order on the radar maps. I don't have a fast data plan, and I think the maps tries to download the entire country instead of just what I can see. I think the maps should try to download the weather data for the area in view first, then start downloading more data for the surrounding area in an expanding rectangle, and wait for the previous data to be downloaded first before downloading the rest, instead of all at once.
Pretty good Had worked great. Now EDIT LOCATION is broken. The default is stuck on my mom's location. Tried Uninstalling and reinstalling, but the settings remain and are not editable. I use S6 Droid.
Accu Weather you missed this, again, please! Can you add more details (days) to the hourly forecasts? Like that they go out 72 hours, but easy to lose track of what day you're on.
Getting less accurate Weather alerts never work for the UK. It said sunny and cloud spells all day and minutecast.... Meanwhile showed only 5 min light rain.... During a 1hour long thunderstorm that flooded buildings trapped people turned the tram tracks into river in city centre and damaged roads...... Yeh thanks..... Good job I was home anyway... No warning and majorly wrong.... Used to be 100% accurate to the minute or 2.... Now it's like... Never right.
Current location needs work Why can't I use my current location for the notification bar? It's ridiculous that I have to select a location for that when current location is an option within the app already.
Screen layout issues The now page does not display correctly on the new LG G3 with quad hd display. It seems as if the app mixes up the display width between the portrait and landscape orientations. In portrait, the screen edges are cut off and in landscape there are black areas on the left and right. This is on the now page only. All others are fine. I'm one starring this for attention. Fix the issue and I'll fix my review.
UPDATE PROBLEM!!!! Why do I have to keep hitting the update button, when I paid for the Platinum AccuWeather, it should do everything automatically
Radar Pinch-to-zoom deletes the radar picture so how's is it the best ap you ever had obviously you don't know how to use it. When you zoom in the radar disappears software needs work otherwise everything else was fine two too bad their arrogance overshadows their professionalism they won't fix the software incompetence or they don't care
Still SUX BAD !! 9/2/16 Latest update turned it to crap. Maps showed clear skies EVERYWHERE while its raining like hell over my state of Texas !!! USELESS . GO SOMEWHERE ELSE IF U WANT USEFU INFO !!! 6/18 STILL SUX, SHOWING 1PM INFO AND ITS AFTER 6PM!!!!! NOT A HAPPY CAMPER WHO PAID FOR THIS VERSION. CUSTOMER SERVICE IS USELESS!!!!
Love the paid version Worth the $ to get the ads off the screen. Good modern design. Great map in motion. The minute cast is a bit off but hey it is a weather app!
Worth every penny What's a weather app? A weather app gives you all the weather related information you need to be in the know and that's what this app strives at. I live in Oklahoma where the weather can be sketchy sometimes so it's important to me to know what's going on
