    I use this to check weather not just near me but where other family members live elsewhere in the US. Radar works well, zoom feature is great. Forecasts could use more detail sometimes - snowfall forecasts, for example, don't always have forecast amounts - but to be fair we haven't had many occasions to use that feature. Enjoy - I like this version MUCH better than the one on my old Kindle! Full Review

    Hello research and development. I don't audit your weather data. That is why I'm not sure if it is correct to what you provide in data. But i do know this much. How great it would be to have my own weather station someday. Then it would be a stat of study comparisons for me. However I know in Colorado weather is a tricky thing to trust? I would really enjoy seeing a historic EVAPOTRANSPIRATION data log. Why you ask? It is an important factor for you to manage irrigation water here in CO. A weather Davis pro can provide this info. What I enjoy best from your weather stats is this. For my tracking purpose of whats to come I do enjoy the satellite IR data you provide. Thanks Full Review

    Want to know what the weather is supposed to be your destination? Check Weather Bug. What's it going to be like outside tomorrow? Check Weather Bug. When is the rain going to start? Check Weather Bug. When is it going to stop? Check Weather Bug. The radar viewer is exceptional and you can set it in motion to see precipitation and/or wind patterns to see where and when things are happening. Best weather app I have found. Trained weather spotter with a degree in earth science and it's what I use to predict what's coming. Full Review

    I Loved My Weatherbug!!! It was the best and told me everything I want know. I don't like the new updates and changes. I liked it better when it gave the details of the weather alerts. Now all I get is "A thunderstorm is likely for the next 3 hours". I would like to know where the storm is located, if it has hail, high winds etc like they use to. Overall,, I liked it better the way it was. Full Review

    I love this app. I'm a weather freak and it does everything I need! Shows me weather where my family is, I like the radar presentation better than what NOAA gives. Just know the rain is 5min. ahead of what it shows due to delay... Also appreciate the up to date pix of ground, "actuals" to confirm current conditions. THX, Weather Bug! Full Review

    After using the Weather Channel app for years, I got fed up with their emphasis on glitz and short on detail (it wasn't this way when I first got it 6 years ago. So I went searching for and trying various other weather related apps. Finally found Weather Bug and liked it right away. It's detailed, informative and accurate. Full Review

    The best weather app out there! Hands down and I have proof! One important thing to me is how accurate the radar storm tracking map is. On my morning walk one morning it started to rain. The problem was my weather app at that time did not show any rain on the radar storm tracking map. So I installed 5 of the most popular weather apps out there right then. I found that only WeatherBug showed rain in my area. So I was sold! I also really like that you can customize the opening screen. Full Review

    I use my Weatherbug every day. From the time my son and I are getting ready for the day. It tells him if he needs a jacket and saves Mommy the fuss and argument and it helps us make plans after work/school. Learning science this year he enjoys checking all of the info out and being able to report it. Thank you for making our lives easier!! Full Review

    Excellent app. The icons are beautiful on the Samsung S8. I open it most often just to look at the interface. It's also (obviously) an incredible weather app. The only disappointment I have is that the status bar temperature indicator doesn't update automatically. That means that I could be reading 60* on the status bar when it's actually like 49 or 75. I have to open the app to force the number to update. Full Review

    I absolutely LOVE weather bug!!! I didn't do the update therefore it didn't show the temperature at the top of my phone normally and it drove me crazy not having that easy access and be able to see what the temp was without having to open some other crappy weather app or website. I felt like I was missing something all the time without it. Did the update and glad to have my favorite weather app back to normal!!! I recommend getting this app for everyone!!! It truly is AMAZING!! Thank you for this great app!!!😁 Full Review

    Will no longer stay open on my phone. The whole point of my having this app is so that I can easily see the temperature on the top status bar of my phone, and quickly click that to open up the full weather. Now I have constantly got to open up my apps, scroll to the end, and manually open this app. I've even tried uninstalling and reinstalling the app, and it still doesn't work right. I'm about 2 seconds from just permanently getting rid of this app and finding one that actually works. Full Review

    from the time since my last review, it has stabilizes. No complaints OLDER: It was wonderful but was 'updated'? 'changed'? or something. Now it refuses to accept my location even though it is a "listed" location & closer geographically. For now I have deleted & will try to reinstall... sure hope it will work right again...

    As a 48 state driver I always hated the limited # of cities in other apps. So far I haven't reached a limit with bug so hands down the best app. Oh and the alerts are nice as well. As far as accuracy goes, this app is as good as and even better than the others. Full Review

    I love Weathrbug! Not only do I get updates regularly, I can read articles about what's going on across the world! I go to it at least twice a day because the weather changes so quickly! It gives me stats on my weather locally! Still love it! Love this app, it's better than any others I've tried, keep up the good work!! Full Review

    Finally figured out the fix for Weatherbug not staying open in newer Android OS. Go to Settings: 1-Device Maintenance 2-Battery 3-Add Weatherbug to unmonitored apps 4-Remove Weatherbug from always sleeping apps BAM! Works like it always used to work. Has stayed on for 5 consecutive days! Very happy with Weatherbug again Full Review

    This app used to work great until the most recent update. Now the forecast is way off from our local news station. Right now the app says tonight's low is 1 degree when in fact our low tonight is 20 degrees. It doesn't automatically refresh each hour like it's set to do. You have to open the app for it to refresh. If it's not fixed soon, I will have to look for another app. Full Review

    S.E. Fritz Published date: February 1, 2018

    I really like this app. It is my go-to for weather info. Sadly, when I recently rearranged my home screen, I could no longer place the widget. I select the widget, it asks me to set a location, I go ahead and do that but then it just goes away. I sent an email to report the issue and there response was that 'sometimes the widget doesn't work' and to 'set the location in the app'. I sent a response stating that I had done what was suggested (I was sure to set the location in the app, not just the widget) and that it still would not work and I am still waiting on a response. Give me back my widget! (Insert foot stomp here) 😣 Full Review

    This is an awesome app. I use it all the time. It is easy to use. It is not annoying. And the forecasts are always right. The best weather app out there, in my opinion. I have been using it for about a decade. I try other apps every once in a while, just to see how they are doing. They are not as good as WeatherBug. And I uninstall them right away. Full Review

    The only bug for me is the notifications which I've had to turn off. I love the forewarning and don't mind for severe weather. It's the notification at 4 am for high heat advisories during the summer. This is Texas, in summer. EVERY day is a high heat advisory. Tornado, thunderstorm, flood yes. Heat and air quality no.

    Trenton Thomas Published date: February 16, 2018

    Used to be most accurate, now it seems they been falling off. My local news been more accurate and that's not saying much. For example, today it says 70% chance of rain, multiple storms in the afternoon. Look at the hourly forecast, it's 0% precipitation every hour of the day. How does that work? Local news says it's just supposed to be cloudy. Full Review

    Generally liked this app until recently. It's stopped updating in the background. I have tried changing the time intervals, but to no avail. The only way to get it to update it to physically open the app. It also quit launching on startup. I have to go find it and start it. Full Review

    This app is great except my map quits working sometimes. That's the only thing I don't like about it. I'm a truck driver so it's important for me to check the radar often. Especially this time of year. Hope this can be fixed again. Thanks Full Review

    Still the best wx app out there. I occasionally try others, but always come back to WeatherBug. Only quirk now is the maps. You used to be able to use you phone back button to exit maps back to the previous app feature. Now it simply exits the app. This is not preferred back button action. Full Review

    I think the new application has some cool features, but only one widget size is ridiculous. I font care that there is lighting 500 miles away from my home screen. I just want an easy way to get to my preset locations. Bring back the small widget and a better score you will get. Full Review

    I took off a star because it doesn't show the hourly or 10-day forecasts on my Galaxy tablet. Works well on my phone. Love the alerts! ADDENDUM: works great on my tablet now so I added a star. I use this every day and it's very accurate. Update: I use this every day. Great info. Full Review

    Used to get semi accurate temps but it has now become useless. The temperatures at the top of the screen are different than the 1 hour, which are different than the current, which are different from the 10 day. Totally useless now. This has been like this for a long time and I'm tired of it time. What is the point of having temps that are different in 4 places. Full Review

    I love the Bug! I have tried so many weather apps over the years that I've lost count but Weather Bug is the one I stick with. Why, even after leaving reviews and giving 5 stars, do apps, with Weather Bug being one of them always beg you via pop ups to review them and leave 5 stars. I did twice now.

    Got a new cell phone, installing apps I already paid a license fee... but, weatherbug doesn't honor my previous payment to them for a license. Other apps still honor my payment.

    Great app! Except maps... f.e. satelite - too rough graphics showing very bad at small regions! For all maps - moving too fast (jumping) at too big time intervals during a too short history period. Unfortunately no forecast for the coming hours. Full Review

    App is almost totally useless now. Ads cover parts or all of the page. "Now" display rarely loads. Neither does the 10 day. Ads. Ads. Ads. Would happily pay for a ad-less version IF it worked correctly. Been using for years & just gets worse each update. Full Review

    I like this app, especially the hourly forecast on crappy days, the 10 day forecast, and the ability to see what's going on in other places. I don't think it's very accurate more than 3 days out. When it disagrees with my local meteorologist, they're more likely to be right, but I really like this app nonetheless. Full Review

    Overall its good. Would like to to turn off notifications that its "trending cooler tomorrow" without turning off all alert notifications. Or just be rid of that ... Useless info. The daily has shown major typos in the past; showing below zero windchills during the summer! But it does good with map radar, current temp widget, lightening info, and weather alerts. Full Review

    When you are looking at the US national radar, you can click and hold on any location to view it's current weather status, different temperature ranges get different colors. This works wonderfully except for when the temperatures are between 60 and 69. They are displayed on a bright yellow and are absolutely impossible to read. This isn't necessarily an important issue, but it's one that drives me crazy. White is illegible on yellow. Full Review
