Sneaky and expensive, NOT free.
RadioPT on 7/19/2018
Signed me up for PAID version in a very misleading way. SHAME!!! And, really! Three bucks a week! Or ten bucks per year.
Con job
showsmejoy on 7/19/2018
Do not attempt to sign up for the trial. You will get charged weekly rates if you do not cancel. The app itself isn’t even that great. Total racket.
Rip OFF !
Wit Man on 7/19/2018
Will automatically start billing after trial. For all the ‘geniuses’ at Apple that is neither FREE nor or a TRIAL. I’ve spent the last hour trying to cancel the subscription .. neither the Google nor Apple has helped!
Warning will charge you money even on free trial
Plmnjio on 7/19/2018
Tries to force you to sign up to and pay weekly unless canceled. Also really choppy and laggy for an app that costs money.
Awesome Alerting
ryboogie1 on 7/19/2018
Always lets me know what’s going on in my area .. makes things simpler
Great for tracking cell movements
BCMC-LA on 7/18/2018
This app is indispensable for gauging cell strength and movement.
I found this to be Elementary
H1Flyer on 7/18/2018
After using free wx apps for years I decided to go with a “Pro” app. But this is not a good buy. It costs too much for what it delivers. Not Pro at all. I’m a commercial FAA pilot. I need real weather analysis. This is a silly app.
Radar map not accurate in Bradenton FL
PST Bob on 7/18/2018
Just started raining heavily and the radar on this map shows no rain within 5 miles of my location. I immediately looked at two local TV station radars on my phone and both showed the storm right on top of me. I’m glad I wasn’t at the beach watching the direction of an approaching storm and verifying it on this app.
Teach2meu on 7/18/2018
Just installed this app and can’t get it to work.
Ads in the way
RV8cfi on 7/17/2018
Ads cannot be moved away. Need to pay to use.
NOAA Weather app
Fl weather bug on 7/17/2018
Very basic but it’s free
Even the trial was disappointing.
Fitzdevlin on 7/17/2018
Here on Spring Mountain between Napa and Santa Rosa the app doesn't even get close to current conditions. I've learned not to expect much in a place 50+ miles from Silicon Valley that has terrible cell reception. Maybe make weather centers publicly subsidized so you'll actually have some data to share.
Not as reliable some days
Supeveryone221 on 7/17/2018
Right now there’s a severe thunderstorm warning on the app, yet outside there is no dark cloud in sight. No rain. No thunder. No lightning. Nothing. It isn’t working clearly and this happens often. But when it’s working, it’s correct. Answer: pretty much everywhere is where it happens. It will tell me certain weather is happening somewhere but it’s not.
Keeps wanting me to download other apps.
this dosn't like my names on 7/17/2018
I haven’t figured out how to get the radar that I want. It is not using my zip code to pin point my location.
rocksandretto on 7/17/2018
There are so many free apps that do this same thing but better. Also, $2.99 a week?? You guys have to be crazy.
popgrowl on 7/17/2018
What’s with the radar? Very hard to see oncoming rain or storms with that pale coloring.
Peace of junk
MMACLION on 7/16/2018
Waste of money No push notifications. On any storms in my area of Central America I miss hurricane pro. It shows the Caribbian very well an my country Belize.

Russellhilburn on 7/16/2018
This app will help anyone to plan a day trip, trip to work, or across country. It's most valuable in pinpointing bad weather. 5 stars.
letit rain on 7/16/2018
WTH, is this crap?
John1970john on 7/16/2018
Just downloaded this app: 1) Literally can't see the radar because of pop up ads!! CONSTANTLY And FULL PAGE! 2) Pay more to get what was offered free i.e. a radar app-NO! 3) Tried putting in my location for weather alerts, apparently I'm 70 miles away from where I actually am? That's helpful. 4)Delete app and stick with MYRADAR APP.
Just an Advertisement
Geo_ on 7/16/2018
App delivers a constant barrage of advertisements that block the screen and make it difficult to use the app. Also, read the Privacy Policy before using the app or deciding to allow the app to track your location in the background. You are agreeing to allow them to sell your information to third parties.
Looks were deceiving.
melogreta on 7/16/2018
It did not look anything like it was presented.
Best weather app
MrGFM on 7/16/2018
The best real time weather app available. Very easy to use.
Nope nope nope -SCAM
kjhayes007 on 7/15/2018
Started subscription charging 2.99 EVERY week without my consent? I even removed the app immediately after install because it’s lousy and somehow, without the app even installed, I’ve been billed a weekly subscription??? Devs: keep putting your dumb response about the app not charging unless you choose premium. I didn’t choose or even expressly authorize you to charge me $2.99 PER WEEK. No one would. Dirty. You won’t last long.
No tech help
alliallison on 7/15/2018
I decided to try the radar pro extras and could never find out how to use them, either they never loaded up or I just couldn’t figure it out I sent two emails to the tech dept and never got an answer 😐
paul sustek on 7/15/2018
This is a important app for the people of the USA. To be informed of pending storms for safety reasons is a asset the its citizens
Less and less helpful
bob1812 on 7/15/2018
This app replaced our beloved Storm app. It is less informative and more cumbersome to work with.

Suz and Tom - apple on 7/15/2018
Lots of adds. Adds to get rid of adds. No graphs for forecasts. Pretty much just, meh
Pinemere on 7/15/2018
Ok radar and keeps prompting me to purchase the upgrade.

Otto Stephen on 7/15/2018
Great! Best weather app . . . 🙂👍🏻
Where is radar?
TWGEHampton on 7/15/2018
I have the app but for some reason the radar images are not showing up
Very spammy
ffstl on 7/15/2018
Constant pop-ups if you don’t upgrade. Basic site provides very little information, deceiving advertisement in the App Store.
Complete rubbish
Eden20111111 on 7/15/2018
What is it with all these apps now, that you have to start paying monthly??? I also downloaded a wallpaper app for my iPhone X to choose different background images, and you even have to pay monthly for that! I just went to google images to get my wallpaper. And now you have to pay monthly for this radar where you can just view it for free on your computer or local station website. Like really...? Almost all apps you download now you have to pay monthly....
Charged me for downloading a "free" app.
Shakjxjdnebsjfoeoa on 7/15/2018
This app is not free. I downloaded it and immediately deleted it after seeing that they charged subscription fees, but it continued to charge me $2.99 a week even though I did NOT choose to subscribe to it.
biggest md on 7/14/2018
It is awesome
Automatic renewal scam
n0y on 7/14/2018
Automatically renewed my “subscription” even though all I did was push ok when it said 7day trial of app. I used the app for 3 days and then uninstalled it. I was charged after the 7 days passed since installing. I never remembered agreeing to pay for anything and I don’t want to redownload something so I can unsubscribe to it. (Especially since I don’t have WiFi for the next few days) I feel that this app runs from crooked transactions and should be taken off the App Store for this kind of behavior. Sad company.
MUEyeDoc on 7/14/2018
Weather App is okay
Uncle Otter on 7/14/2018
Too many pop-ups, display often fuzzy. Display is dated.
TBG VIPER on 7/14/2018
Will tell others about it great app!!!
South Africa
kapteinwolk on 7/14/2018
Never mentioned no radar coverage in Africa. Very important information I needed before purchasing this app!
Great picture of weather
Db-53 on 7/14/2018
The radar and satellite view are very interesting and detailed.
Somehow subscribed to this and there’s no easy way out
portercaz on 7/14/2018
Idk what the heck happened but this app is now charging me $2.99 every 7 days and I can’t get it to stop. Please help. I do not want this app.
$3 per week? Really?
iTuneSUCKS!!! on 7/14/2018
I don’t think the contents I get from the app worth $3 per week.
Weather live!
JohnD862 on 7/13/2018
To watch the weather live is soo great! I love this app!
Ziptripsliper on 7/13/2018
Not getting any weather reports unless I up grade (not happening). Also you’ve managed to tape me into a number of other apps which I have no desire to open nor accept. Therefore, I’m deleting your app.
generoo on 7/13/2018
I love it now PapaGene
Lost Funcrionality
rgatbga on 7/13/2018
What used to be an excellent app is now effectively poor. You can’t control the actual view of what kinds of clouds. The app limits you and what it offers is worthless. I’m sitting here literally overcast and the app tells me there’s no clouds! I guess I’d have to be in the middle of a major storm before it would actually show me the true weather conditions. And of course now they want you to pay yearly. Thanks but no thanks.
LumpyNewsCom on 7/13/2018
This is an OK app. Too many ads on the free version. Update: I understand the ad game, however, the app is poorly designed on top of too many ads. Updated x2: We have considered and purchased weather for our organization from a better constructed platform. Updated x3: Because you continue to respond, consider throwing away ALL of your code and just keep storm the way it was. Your updates to the best free app (ads and all) were disappointing to say the least. Putting snide remarks to responses would be better if you used that energy into your actual product. Covering for a junk job in programming simply magnifies the error in judgement.
No thanks
noaasucks on 7/12/2018
Tried it for a couple of days and then deleted it. Now they’re billing me 2.99 a month for it.
