Ratings and Reviews
Purchased for iPad Pro 10.5. I own several weather apps so was tempted by this one. A few things that need polishing IMO:
1. Zooming/moving screen causes the stream to completely refresh each time. Not so bad normally, however the refresh takes an unusually long time.
2. The panel at the bottom really has to have an option to hide. Feels intrusive. Really noticalbe on iPhone 6S Plus. I realize it was designed with the iPhone 8 in mind, however a hide option would solve this issue.
3. Would really like to have the ability to see dew point. In hot/humid climates, this along with the heat index is really useful.
4. For some unknown reason, after having it installed for a few hours, the iPad version started crashing. Not sure about the iPhone version as I use the iPad version the most.
Fix these issues and I'll change my rating to five stars.
Update: Latest version has provided some improvement. Developer's response to my concerns indicates they're serious at this point. Raised rating to four stars.
Developer Response ,
Following up on our previous response, we've continued working hard on the app throughout 2019 and in addition to improving loading speeds and fixing lots of crashes, we just released a big update that allows subscribers to choose from several forecast sources: WeatherOps, Dark Sky, or AerisWeather (and we plan to add more sources over time). The subscription has a 7 day free trial, so feel free to try each weather source for a couple days to see if one of them is more accurate in your area.

Great app, just not for me.
I am a weather app junkie. My folder of weather apps on my phone is overflowing. My favorite is hello weather which I happily subscribe too for $4.99. But hello doesn’t have feels like temps in the hourly forecast. I still subscribed minus a feels like in futures hours. Weather up shows that data which so why I was so excited when I stumbled on this app. I do a lot outside so it’s critical I can see the “feels like” temp 3 hours or so from now. At first I was ready to subscribe to weather up until it was time to get the dogs outside at 9p. Weather up said the feels like temp was 16. So I bundled up ready to brave the cold. Much to my surprise it wasn't cold at all. I opened another weather app and the swing was a wild 20 degrees higher. As much as I cringe at the $9.99 annual fee (rather high for a minimalist weather app) this app needs to have other weather providers to choose from (like hello weather). If they do I’d be inclined to subscribe. Though $5.00 is more where I see this app but I’m an old
Man that still doesn’t get the whole subscribe stuff. Great app to add to my weather collection but I wait patiently for an update that brings more providers since the current app provider (whoever that might be?)does not work in my neck of the woods. :-(

This may replace my 3 weather apps
I have 3 weather apps I use regularly. This one has the radar I use, the 10 day forecast I like, and hourly forecasts that helps keep me up to date. Also you can see storms coming. I love the map perspective (whole country and then zoom) and the ability to customize it (satellite or map and opacity of rain layer etc).
I'll just have to see how accurate it is compared to what I'm currently using (update later).
The pro version without adds, link is now working unlike earlier reviews.
UPDATE: I've used the app since day 1 at the end of August.
The forecasts and radar have been very accurate- I've compared it to the other apps I've used and the actual weather after seeing the earlier forecast.
I also really liked using the Hurricane tracking layer (pro version) it was clear and easy to follow and lined up with what I saw when I turned on the news. I have friends in Florida and was able to share hurricane tracking screen shots with them that they appreciated.
This app now has a spot on my home screen and will be used daily. I'm also looking forward to updates and improvements from the developer.
I would like:
1. wind speeds listed in the forecasts.
2. the forecasts overlay (bottom) and the forecast bubble over each city to disappear from map when I tap the map (like google maps).
3. to be able to chose my weather data source.
4. weather alerts.
