Wunderground’s recent improvements have really up’s it’s game. Having become disappointed with it’s lackluster reporting tools, I’d switched to Accuweather as my go to app. However after a long period, I came back for a look and was pleasantly surprised at how much improved it had become. From the hourly weather charts to the temperature and wind scale this is now becoming a serious app for people who take their weather seriously. I read everything from the radar screens to wind and weather fronts to make my own projections - not just basic temps. I like to track developing and changing weather fronts long before the local news makes a forecast. So why am I giving the new app 3 stars? Because, unfortunately the folks who own the app tried to pull a fast one. Under the pretense of getting my “feedback”, I was routed to a survey page that was more interested in my income and demographics than in what I thought of the app. Perhaps understanding my income, education, number of children and ethnic background are important to determining how good the app is. However in a world if increasing violations of privacy and marketing of personal information- at a minimum it’s pretty bone head! Sorry Wunderground, my personal information is only my business. Only three stars for not minding yours.
I work in construction and having an accurate and detailed weather app is an essential tool in getting work done. Weather underground has since gone to the wind after some of the most useful features, as well as basic features, have been omitted. 1. Your location can no longer be seen on the map. This makes it hard to see how long we have to work until it’s supposed to rain, which allows us to gauge when we need to pack up our materials and tools so they don’t get wet. 2. Since there are many different locations where we work, finding a local station and accessing the forecast for that location is now substantially more difficult. On the overview map there used to be a feature where you could tap on a station and there was a prompt to “go to weather station”, which made it easy to view the forecast for that area. This feature has since been removed, making it more difficult to view the location where we plan to travel to work to see if weather would effect our work day. In totality, weather underground used to be an amazing and useful tool, but has since been considered just another app that has diminished to subpar features compared to its previous version. Its very disappointing to see because it used to be the pinnacle of weather apps, and now it is reduced to being just another weather app.
BEFORE ITS TOO LATE-DISABLE UPDATING THIS APP!!!! Notice every 6.x update has the exact same explanation, we updated it to charge you for previously free features. Well here’s the good kicker-this update deleted my Apple Watch complication (what you couldn’t figure out how to show ads there too?) My weather station is the source for the downtown of my city and a huge recreation and pool complex, a source of pride. The profit of this has been a premium subscription to this app. With the seemingly slow but substantial downgrade of this app I will no longer contribute my data to be profited on as that deal is now too degraded. With all the complaints about ads getting worse (I don’t see ads)it is apparent that the only reason for this is pure profit off USER contributed data because nothing else is an “improvement” or a “new! exiting! premium feature!”. Ever since the last merger someone seems intent on destroying this brands LOYAL following for more profit. Premium! job done. I would hope other weather data contributors will consider for themselves if they are happy with how this app has changed and if they feel if and if they want THEIR data to be this companies profit and to consider the sources that can be contributed to when purchasing a weather station. Unfortunately mine is only WU and unless something changes this will be the first factor I consider when it’s time to replace mine (no more AcuRite). What can IBM Watson do for you?
I’d like to know what kind of team at the weather channel thought this app was ready to be pushed out to their many thousands of users. I am a paying customer, so when I open my favorite weather app and see giant ads plastered all over the app, I take pause and wonder why. I tried to restore my purchase from the settings page, and there is “nothing to restore”... I’ll give TWC the benefit of the doubt, maybe it’s just a coincidence and my annual subscription has run out. Well, I’m not about to pay again to find out because with the recent update I no longer feel that this app is something worth supporting. The developers have taken a product that was nearly perfect, I mean a *really* good weather app, and made it just so disappointing. The previous layout that showed temperature and a small map when you first opened the app was great! Why on earth separate them? And why doesn’t the map show my location anymore??? That was an awesome feature... very useful to see exactly where I am in relation to rain. TWC messes with perfection, making changes for the sake of nothing more than making changes. The changes were not necessary and I’m beginning my search for a better weather app right now. I had been a customer for many years, but this this poorly executed “upgrade” has me fired up enough to drop wunderground completely.
I almost never write reviews, especially if I’m happy with something already. However, I’m quite displeased with the redesign of the UI in the most recent app release. I can no longer scan the hourly precipitation because 1.) you removed the hours from that part of the UI, 2.) you removed the precipitation percentage that correlated with each hour. Now instead you’ve implemented this stupid bar you’ve got to drag across the screen to see what percent of rain is happening at a particular hour. Problem with that is that the bar is quite thin and can take two or three attempts before you actually tap and hold on the right spot — super annoying. The other issue is that it now takes me longer to get this information than the scanning I used to have to do. Furthermore you’ve made the weather icons above the precipitation/temp bar larger so they are taking up more space than before. Although you did add a second weather icon for each day, I’m still on the fence about that. Also I really liked the feature where it would detail weather it was a good day for mountain biking, but that appears to be gone and I have yet to find it. Maybe I’ll find it, but probably not as I think I’m done using this app. Time to find one with a better more usable UI. Farewell and wish your team the best!
