    I have tried several weather apps. They never seem to be accurate. This is the best one. It's actually correct 99% of the time. And so far, no glitching. 😁 Full Review

    App is great for showing immediate area forcasts and the wonderful hour to hour forcasts are wonderful and useful. This Would be a 5star app. Except that there are too many ads and videos in the way, scattered ino the information. Please condense them into a group, as it is very hard for the user to navigate the irrelevant ads and videos. Condensing ads and vids into one area and then placing it dead center in the data we need means we will see them, but does not confuse us with ads when we are looking at the data. Full Review

    I do not live in Camden, NJ, or even in New Jersey. My app updated at some point and no matter what I fix in "home" settings, my widget always shows Camden. Aghh! I am looking for a fix to this because I'd prefer to see weather status and updates for my home location. Full Review

    Just call the app..ads galore!!!! Worthless app for anything other than annoying ads!!!! Can't watch your channel on cable for last 10yrs or so because it always has the same repeated shows about towing or tornadoes. At least I used to be able to get actual weather on app. Now if you're looking for anything to do with weather you have to wait for a 30sec bs ad to play. Waste of space and worst developed app out there. Stick to WEATHER!!!!! Full Review

    My temp all of the sudden won't show in my notification bar and there's no option or setting for me to put it there. Why would thid get removed in an update? Going to uninstall if it doesn't get put back/fixed. *Update: I wrote the above review like 2 years ago and I'm now experiencing the SAME problem again! Full Review

    You have 1 thing you do, and you fail consistantly. You are often wrong at when the weather will turn bad. Positive is the other features such as lightning strikes are good but not always accurate, missed a lightning storm we had yesterday. Full Review

    This was the go to app for weather, now it doesn't work most if the time. I though it just needed a simple update to fix it but apparently there is more to it. Please help. Full Review

    It works great, their lates update now includes a completely new layout for the app section that shows the predicted pollen level, it now has a section for alerting you to what the outside "mold count" is. The only problem with the app, is the fact that it stores much more data on your phone than the older app's did, & I need to manually delete the excess data every 2-weeks. Full Review

    When I go on maps, it will show no rain in the forecast and yet it will be pouring with thunder, such as now. I get a better report from Facebook. The rain has stopped and not once did the rain ever show up on my radar or was it in yesterday's forecast. I have an arthritic condition and depend on the weather for plans and a special needs child afraid of storms. This is a real inconvenience. Full Review

    Have had this app for years. Can't stand it anymore. So completely overloaded with garbage and commercials that the basic functionality doesn't even work anymore. I have to open and close the app many times and wait wait wait for it to load temperature data. Half the time it won't load. So frustrating. The owners of this app got way too greedy. The overloading of content is ridiculous. Full Review

    It was working well until this new update. Now all I get is a blank screen and no weather info for my location. I uninstalled and reinstalled, but it did not remedy my issue. I don't seem to be the only one with this new issue. Perhaps test it more before releasing the update? Edit: The new update seems to have resolved my issues. Thank you. Edit #2: Still working great since last update. Thank you. Full Review

    Horrible app. The forecast changes all the time. One minute it says 80 percent chance of rain and hour later it will say 20 percent. Would be better if it just said llok at radar map and figure it out. Your guess is as good as ours. They suck Full Review

    The only good thing about this app is that it shows temperature on the status bar. Other than that - it's not working! I cant get any weather report loaded, it takes 10 minutes just to get something on the screen for this app, and usually it's some useless news. It was working the first day I installed it and then it stopped. using nexus 5x Full Review

    Used to love this app, always had good forecasts and some cool videos. Now like a lot of other things it has gotten a political overtone in its videos and ads. Political affiliation aside, I want this app for weather and not to have to hear about political stuff that I have to see and hear everywhere else all day. Full Review

    The last several updates have ruined this app. I have to keep changing my location because the GPS has me in a different town then where I live. I live in Spring Arbor, mi and it keeps giving me Parma, mi. I'm really starting to hate this freaking​ app. Full Review

    Love the app, but the widget no longer works. I like having the widget on my home screen, but it always says "Weather data not available." I refresh the app, it works for a bit then goes back to not available. I have to find another weather app to use because it's not working. Disappointed. Full Review

    Nancy Mueller Published date: June 18, 2017

    I reviewed this app years ago and hgave it a lousy rating due to the enormous car and other ads that dominated it to the point that I could barely find the weather info I wa looking for. Tried it again recently on a new cell phone and it is much much better! Nice graphics! But I would cheerfully pay $2-4 for it if I could have NO ADS. Full Review

    Used to love it, but NOTHING on this app as far as rain/storms/snow is accurate. Completely opposite of what's going on outside my window. I'm better off just doing that, looking out my window. No accuracy what so ever and it's aggravating. They always hype up heavy storms and then nothing. Full Review

    Your reports seem more right for this area than others. How do I find out where you get your info from? Another app seems too low and yet another is way high. Why do you all have such different readings? Full Review

    I really enjoy this app, especially with the newer feature in which it has arrows pointing in the direction the small clusters of storms I are headed. However, sometimes there are glitches and it takes a long time for items such as the radars to load. Full Review

    I absolutely love this app, however there are many ads in the videos it is unwatchable. This has got to be one of my favorite apps, but watching the same ad over and over and over is so annoying. Some ads are longer than the video. At least cut back. Maybe play an ad every other video? Full Review

    What were they thinking with the May 2017 update?! App worked fine before. Now I just get "no data" about 95% of the time. They've made it utterly useless. Uninstalling. Update: the June app update seems to have corrected the "no data" issue. Full Review

    I can't get this to launch on Galaxy S8+. It crashes after having a popup saying it doesn't support the resolution (currently @ 2960x1440)...updated review: even going down to 1480x720 it still says it is unsupported. Lowered my rating to 2 stars & uninstalled. Edit June 19, 2017: It's been on my phone a couple weeks & worked the 1st time. I have no idea what resolution I had on when downloading. I have downloaded other apps with the highest on with no problem. 4/5 stars now because no one is perfect, & I haven't had a need to use it beyond looking at what the forecast is for the next few days. Everything else is superfluous to me. Full Review

    This app will display places you've never been on the widget and won't change to display another location no matter what you do. After installing the update from the play store and restarting my phone it still only shows Bennington, NE. I can unstar it and clear recent places from the widget now, but as soon as I exit the menus it goes back to showing the location as Bennington. Going back into the menu shows it there again, first bookmarked location with that star right back again even though I removed it. Would be a 4 or 5 star app, but I got the thing to show me my weather at my current location on a widget. I don't care about the weather in Bennington. Full Review
