Be a better forecaster than anyone!

This is the best weather app I have ever tried because you can look at the actual map and see your exact location and watch storms and lightning and wind speed temperature you name it in real time. This means that you are a better weather forecaster than a professional for your particular location. For example I can look at the map and see exactly where a little storm The size of a small neighborhood is heading towards my house. The weather channel or places like weather on google cannot give you accurate weather like this because a lot of storm clouds especially in Florida are small enough to invade the radar of professional weatherman. On the map you can switch between all sorts of different weather layers and I usually use the storm and lightning and temperature and air quality. So if I’m driving to a particular beach I can actually avoid storm clouds on the way by finding a different route because the storm clouds in Florida can be so tiny sometimes you can also press play and watch the storms and wear the direction that they are moving in so you can estimate when and where a storm will be

Battery Killer

My phone is just over 2 years old. It’s still perfectly capable of doing just about anything I want it to. In the meantime, Weatherbug has been my go-to weather app. I like the interface, there’s lots of useful information, and it’s lightning tracker is the best of any other app I’ve used that even has one. Unfortunately this app has become a resource hog. I’ve been experiencing a lot of issues with my phone getting very hot and the battery draining very quickly, as much as 50% overnight if I’m not charging it. I’ve been checking the Battery option under settings when this happens, it’s always Weatherbug. I finally disabled background permissions for the app and even reinstalled it and reconfigured all of my settings, and it still hogs my phone. I am no longer of the belief that that turning off background permissions even does anything. I think it just ignores this, because how do I justify that Weatherbug has been using 59% of my battery compared to every other app under 5%? I don’t want/need a new phone, but I think this means it’s time to find another weather app.

I did exactly what the developers told me to do and turned off precise location. There hasn’t been much improvement and my phone is still getting warm. This morning I woke up to find my battery at 16%. It was at 85% when I went to bed. I checked the battery activity in settings and this app was 62% of my usage and I never opened it yesterday. It has been removed from my phone.

Dear User, We are aware of this issue and our engineers are currently working on the problem. Meanwhile, we request you to please disable the "precise location" setting for the WeatherBug app as that will ensure the app does not run in the background all the time. If the issue is still present, please reach out to us so we can assist you on the best possible manner. We regret the inconvenience caused. Thank you for your patience and support. - WeatherBug Team

Weather Bug will kidnap Your Device

Weather bug will completely lock up your devices screen. When you try to open the app you’ll get a pop up giving you two choices 1. Give them permission to track you or 2. Ask them not to track you. Seriously, do you really think they won’t track you or track you less because you clicked ASK NOT TO TRACK. You have to click a choice which I refused. I tried to get out of the app and it had frozen my screen. It would not let me out. Even when I got to my apps to try to uninstall, I had to keep hitting the Home button to get to settings and continue to hit it as I scrolled to the app to attempt to uninstall from there since it wouldn’t allow an uninstall on the main screen. I still couldn’t uninstall it. I had to shut down my device then start it back up, then I was able to uninstall it without opening it and starting the same problem all over again. I understand that these free apps use advertisements to earn money. My issue is that they don’t even offer at least a 10 day trail period in which you could try the app out to see if it’s worth allowing them to track you. I wish these apps would offer an affordable yearly no tracking, no advertising plan. I would be willing to pay $15 to $20 yearly to not be tracked or bothered by annoying advertising. I also don’t appreciate an app that kidnaps my device with no other option but to completely shut down my device to get out of it and delete it. Not Cool Folks!!!!
