Best weather app I have found and I have been through a bunch. The only thing I would add is a audible alarm for alerts in your area and possibly satellite imagery instead of map. I also learned how to fix the slow load on radar if you do an update on your opening page and then go to radar it loads immediately. A tip for anyone experiencing this issue Full Review

I enjoy the ease of having the current temperature on my phone's home screen. I also like the gps accuracy within 75 feet of my home. That beats other weather apps which gives the entire city's temperature and wrarher conditions. I live in the southwestern suburbs of Miami-Dade County. I have no particular interest in the northern part if the county 25 miles from my home. Full Review

 Yes to LINUX No to Windows, Darn it!

Very good for more than the basic information for this type of weather app. So far, no ads and best of all, I DON'T THINK it is siphoning any personal information from me. The thing that is not available on my phone (Sony Xperia C6916, Android 5.0.2) is the ability to put the degree symbol on the notification bar at top of screen. I've reinstalled the app ABOUT three months ago that didn't fix it, it's not a deal breaker. It's still a really good app. Full Review

A straight forward full featured app with no ads that provides lots of meteorological information. But the info can get a little technical, so it would be better if it gave a link to a glossary of terms and abbreviations. A few minor improvements such as map settings remaining in effect between loadings, offering theme color options, smoothing the jagged pixels on the radar image, and adjusting the color scheme on the hi-resolution radar to shift to yellow, orange and red sooner would be nice. Nevertheless, it is overall the best weather app that I have found. Full Review

This is a pretty good weather app, but it really needs to have the option for an alarm notification about weather advisories. I wouldn't know there was an advisory unless I looked at my phone. I want to be able to hear something that prompts me that bad weather is coming my way. An alarm addition would make this a five star app. Full Review

Suddenly isn't updating properly, even on Wi-Fi it reports not available. Then when I tried to report it. It tries to have me share like I'm sending weather to someone. Come on I know the Fed's don't respond but at least act like you're listening. ???? Full Review

I want to say thank you to the creator (s) of this app. I was tired of ads, videos, and other nonsense when I just wanted the weather. This app provides 1)accurate weather from nationally trusted sources, 2)it is free, and 3) NO ADS! This app provides everything your accuweather, weatherbug, and w.u. apps have, minus the bullsh*t. Awesome. Don't change a thing guys! If you ever give in to the ad-side, it will consume you, and you will change into Rosie O'donnel, Joe Perkins! You have been warned! Full Review

Fair to good App. Decent features but not very accurate. The altitude feature may not be necessary for a weather app which is good due to its very poor accuracy. Update: Not sure why, but the app is now completely useless. Forecast now displays "rain before 4am" on evening and night, two days out. Forecasts are based on a location over 10 miles away, rather than a the largest city in the county right next door! No more hourly downloads. Elevation varies by several hundred feet while displaying an accuracy of 16 feet. I have listened, with satisfaction, to the National Weather Service for years. This weather application is the most inaccurate I have seen to date. Uninstalling. Full Review

I love having this app on my phone so I can just turn it on and see what the temp is outside. As accurate for our part of the country as anything local! I live on the edge of the Black Hills of SD in Rapid City and weather forecasting in this area is very tricky. The NWS's app is very handy to have! Full Review

Best I have used. Complete info, inc forecast precipitation amounts, beautiful radar, & great accuracy over the 3 months I have had it. Bravo. Didn't see advance notice of supermoon, other astronomical events. Maybe I missed noticing those. Really good app! Full Review

This application is ass kicking. With this app, you know exactly what your getting. Real up to the minute weather reports. And when you just happen to live out in the country like I do, this app can be your best friend! Full Review

It's a great APP. The one thing I'd like to see added is a ZOOM feature. My eyes aren't what they used to be, it would be nice to read the forecast without hunt for my glasses. Full Review

I can't believe the wind direction arrows are illogically pointing where the wind is coming from instead of showing its direction! Very frustrating for pilots! Full Review

I can see bad weather before it reaches my location to plan ahead for outdoor activities. See temperature at my children's location if it's hot or cold and if severe weather is heading their way. A very good app. Full Review

Works great. In our part of the country, the NWS is the only one that predicts the weather correctly, so this app is needed. I just wish it was listed in F-droid. I HATE the Play Store. ;) Full Review

This is a great app! Very neatly organized. Accurate. Current conditions are always up to date. Great UI. Everything you need to know about the weather is on the screen when you launch the app. My favorite weather app! No issues with this update. Nougat 7.0. Thanks for the degree symbol! Full Review

Best weather app yet. No adds and free. Is a tiny bit limited with the lack of heat index on main screen but that's it. Blows rest out of the water. Full Review

This application is great unlike with the Weather Channel App which tended to freeze up or fail to update weather conditions, now I'm using the NOAA Weather App as my primary go to source for weather and I haven't had any problems or issues with it. I'm happy to give it five stars and five thumbs up. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐???????????????????? Full Review

The National Weather Service is so much accurate then websites on the internet and your local TV stations. It appears internet weather reports from heavily advertised sites that the weather is perceived better so you stay on the site longer. Full Review

Lots of info without intrusive advertising. Great app! I would prefer hourly temps on a simpler format that is easy at a quick glance, not a line chart that makes you discern the data. Full Review
