Negative review Was a 4 now a 2 by anonym
No rain % on phone only on tablet This app use to have the feel of the web page. Now it has the feel of a discombobulated mass that is masquerading as a weather app. I don't know what you were trying to go for but whatever was you missed the mark it's unusable in this stage I can't figure out high and low temperatures is no real radar is it a mess please fix this go back to the previous version. 2/5
Positive review Pretty good by anonym
Seems more accurate than weather bug. I mostly like the ui, but don't love it. Sometimes radar doesn't seem to load. 4/5
Neutral review Best weather info! by anonym
I've used weatherunderground for many years and love the info, but like many apps, they've tried to fix something that wasn't broken. The new layout is not nearly as clean and easy to use as the layout before the last update. With the latest update, I can't figure out how to shut it down. Nobody needs a constantly updating constantly live weather report. It sucks battery life too! You should have stopped 2 updates ago. Every update makes it worse. I'm ready to find a new weather app. 3/5
Negative review Not worth it any longer by anonym
I liked this app until the last update because there was a weather station only 3 miles from my house and now there are none in my immediate area at all. The closest one is now the airport. Update: it's pouring down rain and the app says it's sunny. And that is because the weather station that was in my area is gone. I am still stuck with a general area which obviously does me no good. I am uninstalling as this has become a pointless app for me. 2/5
Negative review Invalid data recieved by anonym
No matter what i do it always shows invalid data received please try again. ? 1/5
Positive review Best out there by anonym
Probably the best weather app for Android currently available. The only request I have is to make the temperature font in the status bar larger. Its pretty small and at times hard to read on my Galaxy Tab S 10.5 and Galaxy S3 as well. 4/5
Negative review Got to do some work by anonym
Long time user first problem.I always get the weather and the small wundermap preview,but alot of times when I click for the large map the radar doesnt show up. 2/5
Positive review My standby by anonym
Have always used wu from the first time I discovered it. It's great, also, if you're a weather junkie since it has all sorts of historical data. While living in south Florida, it was my June to November constant companion. 4/5
Positive review I only miss the table/graph history data. by anonym
To see the extreme temperatures on the previous days I have to browse the site. Please include this and I'll rate it 5 stars. 4/5
Positive review Freeze by anonym
No, not a comment on the weather :). The app locks up about every other time I use it - very annoying! Update: new version works much better, upgraded to 4 stars. 4/5
Positive review Pure awesomeness by anonym
I live in washington and ride a motorcycle. the weather is constantly changing. This app keeps me up to date like no other! I have tried google, yahoo, even weather channel... this blows them away with accuracy . 5/5
Positive review Solid weather app by anonym
Pros = nice display of data graphically, like the summary page giving you graphical info for your closest precip gauge. Cons = unable to access long term historical data like on website, should add anticipated precip depths to the available data fields (I need to go to my noaa app for that) 4/5
Positive review Really great, just one confusion by anonym
This app is really fantastic. I love that the temperature and chance of precipitation, etc are displayed via graph - so efficient! I am just confused about one thing: is there a way to close the app without going into phone settings and force-closing the app? Without closing it, it eats up my battery so I've been just checking it periodically when I need to know the weather. Forcing-closing is a little inconvenient. 4/5
Positive review More than one local weather station! by anonym
It's great thus far and I haven't had any app issues yet :) 4/5
Positive review Much improved by anonym
Weather underground has always been my favorite site for weather, but up until recently using them on mobile sucked. But with recent site and app redesigns, that has all changed. This app provides more information than the other weather apps. Unlike AccuWeather that always crashing, wunderground is very stable and easy on the battery. 5/5
Neutral review Not bad by anonym
Pretty good overall but has some scrolling lag on the main page, even with a Nexus 5. If they fixed this I'd give it a 4 star rating. 3/5
Negative review Can't even launch by anonym
It goes in a perpetual circle. It either wants me to enter my location or enable my GPS in my device settings. I started by entering my location which it saved. Then I open it and it asks me the same thing. So I went ahead and enabled my GPS. I open it and even though it has what I previously entered it still asks for my location. Forget it. Its too bad cuz I've always preferred wunderground 1/5
Positive review Everything I need by anonym
Has everything I need, temperature, conditions, and the all-important precipitation percentage (which most apps seem to lack). Only thing better would be the ability to change the look of the widget (e.g. background, font, etc.). 5/5
Positive review Moto G (dual sim) with kitkat 4.4.4 by anonym
Positive review Great info by anonym
Like the hourly, know when snow will start. July 2014- now I can't see barometer & wind, it disappeared. 5/5
Positive review Awesome by anonym
Have had this app for iPhone for years and loved it. Switched to a droid device and still love it. It has a hard time guessing where I am if I have bad cell service but still have a wireless connection, but considering I usually know where I am, I don't see this as much of an issue. 5/5
Negative review by anonym
I like it and it's pretty accurate with the weather but, it doesn't know where I live. I live in NM and it comes up TX. 2/5
Neutral review More time need for developing for Android by anonym
It is fantastic on my work iPhone. Lacks advanced settings particularly the amount of frames, speed and frame delay for the radar. I used the feature for more detail of developing storms as I work outside on towers. Also it is pretty buggy in general. 3/5
Positive review by anonym
This provides excellent detailed weather data on a local basis. It can show significant differences in areas of a town/ city. 5/5
Negative review OK but no WeatherBug replacement. by anonym
Still no notifications for severe weather. A symbol pops up beside the weather details when the app is open. But no audible notifications like Weather Bug. 1/5
Positive review Loved it! by anonym
I'm loving it so far!. The site is also very good so is the app I suggest using this because it shows the weather hourly and that is also one of my favorite things!. Thanks and keep up the good work! =) its also just a little bit buggy sometimes but other than that its great =D 5/5
Positive review Main source Weather by anonym
Have been using weather underground for 2 years now. Never had a problem. This is the only weather app I trust and I always check it before leaving the house. I love the new update, slight issue with the temperature being too large but nothing bad to report. Always refreshes giving me the most current radar. For me it is especially important to know the weather with my job at FedEx. We get all sorts of freight and,knowing the weather we can plan for deliveries to give everyone their packages on time. THANKS 5/5
Negative review Has difficulty with local weather by anonym
Although it accurately finds my location, it consistently uses a weather station miles away in another town which often differs by 4°C (7°F). A weather station within 1 km is ignored yet its current readings are consistent with mine. I can't rely on it. 2/5
Positive review by anonym
Better than any other weather app. Has kept me ready and prepared for mother nature and her bipolar schizophrenic self! 5/5
Positive review Still getting familiar with it. by anonym
I like the app but I'm still trying to wean off of more mainstream weather apps. We'll see how this one goes as far as improvements and enhancements. 4/5
Positive review Best Weather App. by anonym
If you are going to school, or have a true interest in meteorology then there is no better app then this. The amount of information available is incredible and you can even contribute to your own areas forecast. 5/5
Negative review Poor prediction by anonym
It always shows raining in my area where its sunny n hot day outside so I'm giving u guys only one star 1/5
Positive review Better than weather channel! by anonym
I just wish it would tell me whether the pressure is rising or falling, but at least it does tell me the numerical pressure, which the weather channel's app doesn't do at all. This is very important to me due to my health, and wunderground gets this, as well as many other things right. I love this app! 5/5
Positive review Great but by anonym
With the last update it sometimes fails to load weather data, and it will display 0 degrees. I have to open the app to get it to load again. Why doesn't it just show the most recent conditions? 4/5
Negative review Needs Updates by anonym
Needs some work. It's works, just not well. When it does load maps, they're slow and don't scroll well. Would love to see some updates, and they're needed before this will become my "go-to" weather app. 2/5
Positive review Not perfect, but the best I've found so far... by anonym
Map could use some performance improvements for speed and also more frames for animated satellite. Lightning strikes would also be nice addition. No settings for alerts, but app description says it provides them so I'll see if I ever get one. 4/5
Positive review App is much improved, so I'm adding another star. by anonym
I couldn't figure out why my Samsung s3 was losing power. Often didn't last 24 hours. After reading some reviews I deleted the app. I now get a day and a half per charge. I just use the browser to access the site, which is still the most reliable forecast in the NYC area even though it's not as convenient as the app. 4/5
Positive review The best by anonym
I have a Personal Weather Station on the Weather Underground network. This app finds it and uses it for the default. WU forecasting is accurate. You can't beat the weather maps! Last week it was raining. AccuWeather showed nothing on radar when zoomed in. Weather channel showed nothing on radar when zoomed in. Weather Underground however did show the thundershower. The only thing that I could think of to make it better would be push notifications for weather alerts. 5/5
Negative review I have apparently moved to China by anonym
Widget is awful. Just awful. No one reads these reviews, nor do they care. Location now shifts me to China in the widget. Install something, anything, else. 1/5
Positive review Please work on it by anonym
This was my favorite to use but lately it's gotten too buggy. First off it constantly changes locations even if I've been in one spot all day, and second thing is the weather when I was in ocean city new Jersey over labor day weekend it was in the 80's and this app said it was -34 degrees now does that sound right to you? Please fix so I can use it again because it's the only one I trust. 4/5
