  • Terrible

    By keepflyin
    Used to be pretty good now it’s utterly useless. Avoid.
  • From beast to least...

    By Guster108
    This radar app HAD a lot of functionality. The newer versions of this app have taken away features and placed them behind a monthly subscription. Instead of adding value and asking for users to subscribe, they have taken away features and asked us to pay for something we previously already had. Example of what not to do. Plus new version is not as fast and harder to use.
  • Old version

    By Adam Tronnes
    All the great features of the old version of this app are gone, the time frame is useless for gathering any worthwhile information and is no longer adjustable. Angry that I payed for this once great app.
  • Still needs slider

    By buryitz
    Edit: enjoyed for years, paid for it originally but now it subscription based, it is useless garbage now.
  • Previously purchased

    By EnzoTrowa
    Purchased this app a couple years ago for $5.99, and now I get no features I had before an update and now I have to pay more money? Terrible development wouldn’t spend a dime on this terrible app. I don’t get readings anymore and active weather status.
  • Bring back the layers

    By Fscetaylor
    Over laying all the layers was the best feature, not you have to pick n choose, not good. Also, where are the fires? I used this app for the severe weather intel and now a lot of those features don’t work or are gone! Bring back the old stuff, please, I paid good money for this!
  • What a POS joke

    By Jvb110788
    A TORNADO WARNING HAS BEEN ISSUED FOR THE FOLLOWING AREAS: B.... Oh can't click to see more ANYMORE. Sorry not sorry. Hope you enjoyed it for the past few years. No more detailed storm info either. When I hear "upgrade" I don't expect a downgrade. Seriously, free apps work better than this joke now which is absolutely disappointing. At least tell us the name of the new app you created that we get to give you more money for. Good job.
  • Absolute garbage

    By hug-luvr
    Ah, how I wish I could get a refund for this app. Since Apple only offers refunds during a 30 day window (or whatever it is, I can’t recall), I’m no longer eligible because I bought this app probably 2-3 years ago. Since then, they completely changed it, and now require a monthly subscription to view live radars and forecasts. I paid 2 or 3 dollars originally, and had full access. Now I don’t, because I don’t want to pay a monthly fee. If the developers/creators are reading this, please give me a refund and make it right since the app has changed and I no longer get what I paid for originally.
  • Terrible update. Ruined app

    By Add for
    UpdateMar2018: noticed people saying they would pay a one time fee to have some of the old feature back ( without subscription). Actually giving better ratings now. Well that is exactly what I did when I bought the app originally.... then they eliminated those things people would be willing to pay a "one time fee" to have. Guess what - it will be a one time fee until they decide to do it again. Weathersphere just waiting it out hoping enough new people will start reviewing the app. UpdateDec: they have added back some features although their response to me is wrong. I purchased this app and another RadarCast together. This one only had current radar, the RadarCast had future radar. Now the RadarCast app is showing current radar and moves through time and actually shows time in the future. Unfortunately now when it gets to the future time the radar just disappears from the screen for the future times. So yes I did pay for radar with future radar on it. And yes they did take it away. There is a reason you can see ratings for the original app people already paid for before 3.x. . ....17,000+ 5stars. Nothing below 4. Updates aren't helping much to eliminate the 1stars. Update: still crap. Do not believe any stars above 2. All are suspiciously similar. Scripts keeps updating so you can't see how many bad reviews there are total compared to what it was before the 3.x disaster. Should not trust any Scripts apps. Weather Underground app works better. Until Scripps returns to old app I would be suspicious of any app they make they may do this bait and switch. I think when Scripps bought Weathersphere(and premium apps)they got rid of people who built the app and don't know how to go back to old version. Now it seems they are going to give SOME of the paid for features back to get a few positive reviews. Also seems like the are doing it piecemeal so the 1000s of 1 star reviews don't show up. Current version reviews will keep going back to zero with each little change/update. Original update3.1: DO NOT BUY/SUBSCRIBE IF YOU ARE CONSIDERING IT. Someone must have said...."what do people like about this app better than other apps? Let's take that away even though people paid for the app". One of the worst updates I have seen in a paid for app. Would never consider paying for anything again from vendor weathersphere. Why would I want to see my location zoomed in all the way to about 3 houses so I have to pan out to see anything?? This app has become useless overnight. Have to find another app. Should have been labeled version 0.1

    Was once a great app. It's deplorable that Apple allows this to occur. I paid good money for this app, they switch their business model and without notifying us can start to charge a monthly fee. Garbage. Just use AccuWeather.
