NO ADS! NONE! They don't even beg you to donate! For those reasons alone, I'd probably use the in-app donation link to throw them some money just to say thank you. I have used a lot of weather apps for a lot of years, and this one is one of the best. Simple to use, easy to figure out, all the information I look for and none of the fluff. The settings are sensible and update in real time. Weather maps are coherent. This app is worth your time and device memory. My one quibble is I think the widgets could be better. But that's very, very minor.

Used a bunch of weather apps and websites. Best by far. No click bait. No ads. If you open the radar, which is perfect, trying to get an update later usually doesn't work. I've gotten into the habit of just closing the radar after each look. Paid some money; don't remember the amt. Worth it though. I work outside and this tells me everything I need without a bunch of useless glitz Update: radar issues a couple updates ago. Even better.

C70%
by C####:

I have three weather apps on my tablet. The default app that came with the tablet is marginal, the app I purchased is pretty fair, but this app has become my " go to" app for reliability and accuracy. Very good app. The only thing it lacks for me is a color code chart for rain density in the radar. Not essential, but would be nice. If it's hidden somewhere, I haven't found it.

O70%
by O####:

This is a pretty good app. Missing a few things that would make it better. A weather map widget to drop on the home screen, satellite image layer on the map, and customizable alert notification settings. I find that the hazardous weather outlook comes numerous times a day, and gets annoying. Would like to disable that alert but keep other alerts, like watches/warnings active.

H70%
by H####:

My main concern with any weather app is providing hourly forecast conditions for a particular location. This app provides that, plus alerts, 7 day forecast, weather maps and radar. It accurately finds your current GPS location and altitude, which makes accessing local conditions easy, even while on the move. Setting and saving multiple locations is easy, and allows monitoring of changing weather conditions in several places along a route. Overall, some of the graphic tables could be better, but this app provides everything I am looking for.

Excellent. Many options. Like it's linkage and data direct from NWS. Especially like the link to the NWS mobile site when you tap the Temperature area. I've always preferred the NWS sites over the "private" vendors. 1. The others get their data from NWS anyway; 2. I've often experienced others to be WILDLY wrong (like standing under a clear blue sky with current conditions telling me it's raining.) Could hardly be happier with this app.

One can get local information as well as national. I enjoy using this app every morning so I will know what to expect for the day and next few days. The app is very colorful and neat. Thanks for a job well done. Curtis Moore in Waco, Tx.

V70%
by V####:

Very nice app, I especially like that it doesn't waste time or data loading ads, because there are none! It doesn't want me to buy add-ons, and the weather info comes straight from the NWS, which is our tax dollars at work.

When it comes to weather apps I have seen them all. I run 2 or 3 at a time. I just have a thing for weather. The one thing I have seen on all apps is lack of information.... But not here. Wow!!!! The information feed is crazy! I can not believe the amount of information one app can give you. Love it! Yes this app might not look like the other apps but come on! What's the real point of weather apps?! Lol. Great Job!!!!! Keep it up.

This app. worked great for awhile, now keeps going back to 32 degrees and heavy snow and fog. No hvy snow or fog in my area. I refresh the app. still comes up with the same wrong temp. if I finally get the app to show correct info. it will soon go back to the 32 degrees. Temp. out is 40 degrees over cast. Only place with snow is on Mt. Hood, not Aloha/Beaverton.

I like this weather app the best. It's easy to find the info I want, the radar is good, and the forecasts are accurate. It's not full of a bunch of nonsense. I have had a lot of different weather apps on my phone and I am sticking with this one.

by ####:

It is simple and easy to use. The hazardous weather warnings can be clunky and hard to read because of the formatting but otherwise, the app works great and is way better than other weather apps.

Just what we needed. Job requires accurate weather. This app has been the most reliable for wind and overall conditions. Dump the rest and switch to this app now. Hopefully pollen counts and allergy information is coming soon. Perfect app in every way.

With all the new updates still can't see the temperature notification when browsing on my galaxy s7 edge. Only certain temperature readings only seem to work...very odd!!!

I am a semi-pro meteorologist and this app has everything I need for an excellent overview of the weather. If there is anything else I would want it's probably that occasionally I would like to see more of the old-fashioned weather maps (jetstream, isobars, etc) that we old-timers used, and maybe more about climate and records. But, overall, I really like this weather app and rate it 5-stars. * * * * * Thank you, and keep up the good work.

Current conditions widget not working. It says. "Data not available." There is a bug in this widget causing this problem. Because of this, I am no longer using this widget. Also, on the app, there is an Error message in wind gusts. It says. "NA" I think a bug is causing this problem also please fix.

Just fabulous, all the info you need. Detailed weather forecasts and outlooks including jargon and acronyms I don't understand. Keeping this one!

Solid, solid work with this. It's my go-to, homepage app for all things weather.

Y70%

No way to turn the app completely off once started. It sends auto updates. This is nota good app if you want to conserve battery charge.

This app has a fast, responsive radar with zoom in and out buttons. It has weather alert notifications not found in many other weather apps. And the app is continually updated with useful features. I highly recommend it.

Good app easy to use. Though every day you will have a hazardous report on something that is not weather related

Hello, will try app one more time. If I have storage or battery issues I will have to uninstall it. Hopefully that won't be necessary. Thanks

Best weather app. No ads. Only in app purchases are to donate if you want to. No prompts. Hope it stays this way. Beats local tv apps other weather apps and Google's weather notifications. Thank you Joe!

It shows hazardous weather warnings and watches. Pretty much the only weather app you need.

70%
by ####:

It locks up and it only once updated the forecast when I first downloaded it, but once I viewed it hasn't updated and keeps saying data unavailable for iver 5 hours, I have it set for every 30 minutes.

I have been refreshing for 14 hours and it will not work. The app has become junk.

by A####:

The only thing I would change - make the 7 day forecast available in a condensed version so I don't have to scroll down to see it.

P70%
by P####:

Better than the other apps ive used. Less footprint and memory usage. Easy to use and simple, with forcast-/ aviation discussion for advanced users.

Very easy to use app! No ads, no climate change shoved down my pie hole! :)

25 weather apps later, and now the search is over! It's respectful, it doesn't ignore my settings, notifications, no sneak up in the background.

Just what it sez.. National Weather Service Radar Now..... NO ADs, no local TV over-hyping, no stuff that isn't needed. Only shortcoming is the radar won't show in the widget....

App is unresponsive when trying to change locations, freezes up, and shuts down unexpectedly.

Y70%

Accurate forcast, current temperature readings for my area. I check this app every night and in the morning since my work is mostly outdoors. Has not let me down yet. Whatever it says the weather does.

Well organised, easy to use, offers different types of weather info (love the "forecast discussion," it's like a conversation!), simple, well designed.

L70%
by L####:

I was looking for a reliable weather app with the details for the day and week, including hourly forecasts, that did not contain ads. National Weather Service NOW is exactly what I wanted. Thank you developer for this app. It is the best weather app I've used.

Thanks for fixing the map to street level. Adding traffic layer would make it great. Easy to use without pesky ads. Best of both worlds.

Fairly basic weather app with very few required permissions and simple yet works well. Great tech support!

Awesome. Only complaint is readout for multiple days could be simpler, or have a simple temp only option without all the explanations involved

70%
by ####:

Forecast is a mess. Says it will be sunny at night. Have the next night forecast before the forecast for the day. Very confused

I've tried about all the weather apps. This app beats them hands down!
