    It’s accurate as possible and works great. I use it a lot.
  • Not Accurate By Any Means

    How can you have a list of the high for Saturday listed at 71, but the hourly high only gets up to 69 for the same day? Which is it?
  • Annoying ads and slow to load

    By St coffee
    I’ve had it with! They are waaaaay more interested in selling ads that are irrelevant and showing videos that are stooopid... so many other weather apps and NOAA so buh-bye!
  • Great info

    By Two'
    Love it all info I need at my fingertips
  • I do love this app. Needs new touch

    By i3erica
    I’ve loved this app for years. The weather on the home screenView is the best. I do wish they would refresh their background image set instead of the same repeated backgrounds as well as include one more layer of data on that home screen like possibly year back view of this day last year or something. It has always felt just barely balanced UX wise. I do hope they implement AR soon as that would top the charts.

    App doesn't work good, it states cloudy and clearly raining outside. Unreliable.
  • Pop ups

    By srlandreneau
    This weather app will be completely closed but a few times a days a pop up ask me if I want to allow the app to use my location. I don't want them to know my location. Ask once not a total of 50 times!!!!
  • Love

  • Use to work

    By Rdubw
    This app was useful until it got bloated with videos and ad work. Does not work on an Apple Watch 3 cellular without the phone nearby. What's the point of a cellular Watch that you can't use without your phone nearby. If I'm hiking, riding a bike or being active I don't want a phone in my pocket. Make an app that works without my phone and I would pay for it.
  • Total 💩💩💩💩💩

    PUH-LEEEEZ - do not insulting my intelligence with incredibly unbelievable 5-star “glowing” reviews. 🤮 Daily and hourly temps do NOT agree - EVER. I mean EEEEVER. Radar and printed (day/hourly) weather NEVER agree. Radar lags BADLY. Past and future weather get mixed up as to which is which - ~WHEN~ they FINALLY load (10-20 seconds later). Your videos are awful. Why don’t you enable an option to disable the videos completely. Oh yeah, that’s right - you’re big on rhetoric. Commercial will run, then you wait…and wait…and wait. And I’ve decided whomever is captioning the videos couldn’t get a job naming candle flavors or incense. Get real. And DITCH the politics, global warming, death and destruction. It’s a WEATHER app, right? Try sticking with that - y’all ~used~ to be good at it (notice the past tense there).
