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

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!!!!

Ridiculous “alerts”

I have to say, I’ve tried WeatherBug and AccuWeather . I find the WeatherBug interface to work nicely, things are in places that make sense and the information is displayed in a sensible way . What I do not enjoy is the exclamation mark telling me about weather alerts constantly , only to tap and find out it’s just alerting me to the fact that “some roads will be wet” . Of course some roads may be wet, the weather predictions say it’s going to rain! That is not an alert and forces me to just ignore the alert symbol entirely . I would like to be able to disable the commuter alert entirely, it’s pointless. Second, the “daily precip” alert… also pointless. The whole point of the app is to see the weather prediction… I open, check todays prediction hourly or the 10 day … seeing the red exclamation mark again, I check only to see a so called “alert” that just tells me rain is expected and to check the forecast . That is not an alert and completely defeats the point of having an alert show up, it’s basically the boy who cried wolf because it’s almost always displaying one of these “alerts” .

Edit: Well, I look stupid. You can just turn the commuter and daily precip alerts off , but it’s per location and I have looked for this option before and either somehow missed it or they have changed it in an update somewhere along the line .

To personalize your experience, we introduced the option to enable/disable each type of alert provided by WeatherBug. However, you will still receive any weather-related information in your Alert tray, even though you have a Customized Alert disabled.
You will still receive the alert information but will not get a pop-up notification on your device. This way, you will receive your active Alerts as a pop-up notification on your device, and you can still check the inactive Alerts in your Alert tray.
We want to make sure you will have access to all relevant information, and you have the choice to check it whenever is convenient for you. Thank you- WeatherBug's Team
