WHAT MAKES THIS WEATHER APP DIFFERENT FROM OTHER APPS?

WE FILL IN THE GAPS
Our 250,000+ personal weather stations report the most localized weather conditions. The data that we collect from our user-owned weather stations fills in the gaps between the airport weather stations that other weather services rely upon to generate forecasts - meaning our data is generated from actual data points in your neighborhood.

INTERACTIVE WEATHER & RADAR MAP
The most interactive weather map on mobile allows you to select from different weather overlays including current conditions, animated radar, satellite, webcams and severe weather. Customize the map by selecting specific data layers or choose from the various map presets such as severe alerts.

CROWD REPORTING
Sky reports let you tell us if the sky conditions we’re reporting are what you're actually observing. If you see something different you can report the conditions you're experiencing for the benefit of other app users. Hazard reports allow you to report any hazardous road conditions you experience to help other people in your area.

For the longest time the Weather Underground app was nearly useless. The data was top notch, but the app was not. But now the app finally matches the weather service I have depended on over the years. It's faster, looks great with the best widgets ever! I have used Weather Underground since 2001 and have no plans to look elsewhere in the future. Recently there's been weather services with hyper local rain predictions and now this app has that also. All good. WU is the best. Full Review

This is hands down one of the best weather apps out there (their main competition is their storm app). Plus they keep improving in ways that make it just that much better. They just really screwed up their website though. So the app is the only place I get my weather anymore. I'm really hoping they don't mess up the app like they did the website (I was thinking to donate to remove ads this holiday, but I can't support the recent changes!) Full Review

Update: not sure how accurate the temperature is, today WU is telling me its 11° but all other services (BBC, MET Office...) say its 5°, my hands are also telling me it's Definitely Not 11°, quite a discrepancy there! Tried WU in the past but it didn't grab me. This new version is a huge improvement, the layout/UI is slick, the smart forecast is an inspired addition, whoever thought of this should get a pay bonus! Nice work. Thanks Full Review

Absolutely brilliant app, especially if you want to keep up-to date with your own personal weather station! Pros: Accurate weather forecasting. Brilliant rain forecast, and near spot on. Easy to use. Friendly UI. Cons: A few bugs here and there, but very minor. Thats the only thing i can fault with it! Long time user of 3 years. One of the best apps out there!! Full Review

App and wigits crash alot. I use 2 wigits 1) for my home town weather and 2) for the gps location when I am traveling. I do not always keep the location service running. That is the way I have been doing it for years, with no problems. I did follow the instructions to remove the wigits, app, start and stop my device (Samsung S8) and to do a fresh install. Did that about 4 times. No change. It started two updates ago. Use to like this app. Even paid to remove the ads. I want to stay, but if not fixed I will be forced to look elsewhere. This app use to be the best app. I changed my review from 5 stars and will change it back if fixed. Full Review

Works great... only issue I am am having is that the notification bar temperature does not update on frequency that is chosen in the options. No matter what I set the timeframe to it only will update when I unlock my phone. I also wish there were shorter update options faster than 30 minutes... 15 minutes... 10 minutes maybe? I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling the app but that doesn't seem to help. Full Review

Great stuff! I love the constant updates to retain accuracy. Sunrise and sunset times are in-depth with last and first light, but a full twilight chart would be a great future addition. Sometimes when I unlock my phone I get a message telling me 'unfortunately, weather has stopped.' but aside from that I've yet to run into any problems. I will be buying the ad-free experience very shortly. Full Review

It has been in a state of crashing for a week. It was great but it repeatedly sends messages telling me "unfortunately weather report has closed" when I am not even using it. I can't seem to get it open anymore. Radar thinks that I'm in another country unless GPS is on. The app was better in the past. Goodbye ???? ???? five stars... Full Review

2017-12-12 - weather underground keeps crashing, please help. _ i have used Weather Underground for a long time (website and app) and commend the new update; beautiful. My only complaint: I think the widget Wundermap should look as good as the map zoom level example pic in the options. Full Review

Weather app is just a weather app? No, at least not for me. For one, the layout is well thought out, and the information works in a visual way better than the other four weather apps I have installed. That said, what makes this a real standout is that I can choose a small weather station nearby for the current conditions - what they promote as "Hyper-Local". I live a fair distance away from the airport where the local weather office takes its readings - and the other apps just use the airport weather. The micro climate in my area is quite different from the airport, and very often it is raining at the airport, but sunny here, or the reverse. I've often noticed there is a temperature difference as well. That one feature alone makes this my go-to weather app, but overall it does stand out as the best IMO. Full Review

It's currently 1C, but app says it's 12C. In order to get app to display correct temp, you have to manually change the location to another place and then back again. Also, crashes constantly if GPS is turned off. Workaround for crashing is to set location and remove location permission. Using version 5.8. Tried uninstalling and reinstalling but problem persists.

App was great when it worked. Now it just crashes nonstop. If I try to restart it, it crashes again. Seems unusable on my Pixel. Edit: After reading through other reviews I realized it's only crashing when location services is disabled. That's really annoying since I don't like having location service on all the time.

I like that I can get temp, humidity and rainfall data so close to my home. Also, the radar/map was great during the hurricane. I especially found the projected storm track interfaced with the map useful during that time. It allowed you to zoom in and out. For a map buff, that was awesome!! No other weather service offered that level of detail. Full Review

This is actually my favorite weather app but it has recently started crashing on my Galaxy S7. I'm not sure if this has to do with a recent update the developer has put out or the Android update that happened not too long ago but I implore the folks at WUnderground to fix this. Due to the app constantly crashing, I have to uninstall for the time being. I won't, however, cancel my subscription because I really want to see this issue resolved! Once it is I'll reinstall and change my review to the full 5 stars the app deserves. Full Review

Had to revise my review on this for the second time I took away another star because the radar fails to load when motion mode is selected. Time to search out a new app. Third revision and this app keeps getting worse radar us pretty much useless Full Review

I like the hyper-local weather station data. It lets me see accurate current weather conditions. The forecasts seem pretty good compared to some others. I do wish the interface were a bit more customizable, though. Unfortunately, since the last update, the app has been crashing once per use. Doesn't make it unusable, but it's annoying. Full Review

The latest update has made this app totally unreliable. If I have my GPS turned off the app constantly crashes. If it doesn't crash it won't display and temp data even when I hard set a location in the settings. It also won't display the temp in the notification bar at all, just a circle with a pair of dashes in it. The location tracking is off at times when I turn it on to actually see the temp. It sometimes places me in Bristol instead of Houston. I relied on this app for weather updates but now it's all but useless with the constant crashes and not displaying the temp, so until it's fixed it's getting uninstalled. Full Review

The newest version constantly force closes on my LG G5. THE NOTIFICATION TAKES FOREVER TO UPDATE. I also have my app settings to allow background data while using battery saver mode but the notification does not work unless I turn off battery saver mode. Please fix this. I would also like more frequent notification updates like checking every 10 or 15 minutes. Full Review

Keep retrying but gets worse and worse. Weather is never right. Says it's snowing or raining when it's not. One year later and STILL no storm tracking. Goodbye!! Use to be the best weather app. Now storm tracker is off and current temp is off by over 10°. That's a LOT. How can I depend on severe weather alerts if can't get the temperature right or even close. Uninstalling and switching to something else. Full Review

Does everything it should. The only reason it's not five stars is that it occasionally glitches and sits in the background chewing up a whole core of CPU, and I don't notice until my pocket gets hot. Aside from that, it's great! Full Review

Overall it's fairly useful, and generally at least as accurate as the full website. My complaints are that the radar overlay is very fickle & inconsistant when not animated, and the wind readings are absolutely pathetic no matter where in the country I am. It currently thinks there are only gusts of 8mph, but the house is actually shaking. This is typical of the info it provides, regardless of settings. Full Review

Very information dense, but organized and displayed so effectively that it's easy to parse and helpful to me in understanding the meteorological aspect to the forecasts. The poor quality of the doplar radar map is the only negative but it's so minor I can't justify removing my fifth star. Full Review

The swiss army knife of weather apps. It is perfect for a quick check in an instant, or detailed information and live maps, as well as local emergency and condition alerts. Everything from flu season and allergy season status reports to moon phases and sun rise/set times, and more. Full Review

Current weather data customisable to weather station closest to my house or wherever I choose, not just the city center. This is great becuz weather is VERY LOCAL in this city. Also like that doppler radar view is available with single click, and you can get hourly or daily forecasts. Best weather app I tried. And the onscreen ikon is black which i prefer. Full Review

Came back after 2 years, and this app is still horrible. Not many settings, no decent tile choices. Have a netatmo that I would like to connect, but cannot get anyone to return a freaking email. Cancelling subscription, again. Won't be back. Full Review

Widget has the simple design I'm looking for. Too bad the app Itself doesn't. Everything is cluttered in 1 long scrolling page with half screen size ads mixed in. No left to right scrolling pages for hours, extended, etc. like pretty much every other weather app. Full Review

I've tried other apps, sometimes for months at a time, trying to make sure my love for this app wasn't just habit or familiarity. It's not. I just truly prefer this app. It's accurate, easy to use, and has loads of awesome features. I'm done testing anything else. This is clearly the best weather app for me. Full Review

It's a great app. For the past few days it's been immediately crashing every single time I tried to open it, but I eventually realized that it was because location services on my phone had been turned off. Once I reactivated my GPS, this app went right back to proper function. Full Review

App crashes constantly starting about a week ago. Seems to happen when my location is turned off. It used to just use wherever the most recent location was when location was off, but now it just crash crash crashes. Deleting widget, uninstalling, wiping cache, and reinstalling didn't help. Had been using it for >2yrs but I've had to download a new weather app because this is too painful. I really miss the graph that shows temperature and rain probability! Full Review

Best weather app. Works smoothly, and is set up intuitively, for example the week preview has subtle shading for day and night hours, the temperature is shown on a graph, and precipitation in inches. I also love the barometric pressure info. And best of all, for a small fee one can get rid of the ads. Unlike the weather channel app, which is bulky, way bloated with ads and no way to get rid of them, and after the last updated kept crashing. So glad I switched! Full Review

It was a very good weather application I'd ever used. But now, after update there is a problem. When the location is off, It doesn't work, the apps crashes. It​ is a bug, guys. I need to find another weather app, unfortunately :( Full Review

Generally, the best all purpose weather app out there. But if I had the option I'd down grade my previous 4 rating to 3.5. The weather map display and widgets are inconsistent and slow particularly when there is widespread heavy weather. Guys, aren't you owned by IBM now? Try hosting on an elastic cloud! And why not combine this app with Storm? Full Review

The last update messed up the temperature graphs. I have no idea what the temperature will be now. Do you test what you make? I might just as well switch to climate change deniers Accuweather, which is notoriously wrong all the time. Full Review
