  • Useless now

    By Clarkr44
    This app used to be so good. Now I will not use it anymore. I just wanted to see what Doppler was showing heading my direction, now it doesn't even show the underlying map.
  • Rip off.

    They removed functionality and replaced it with a subscribe button. They ripped off their original customers.

    This app was great! Easy to use, fast and accurate. They changed a good formula and now its complicated and slow. I cant say how accurate it is because I don't have the patients for it to load. I deleted it today and got a different app. If it ain't broke, DON'T FIX IT!!!

    Why did these idiots destroy what USE to be the best radar app hands it’s a piece of crap!!!! I will never in a billion years understand the logic behind the decisions made with this app!!! From first to worst!!!
  • Developer is a criminal.

    By Jda100
    These criminals pulled the old bait and switch, trying to sell you publicly available data that they did not create for an app fee + a monthly fee. The monthly fee is especially galling because it is exploitative and it costs the developer nothing to provide this data. It was added after tons of people already bought their app. I hope the NOAA pulls their data supply.
  • Cheating Paid Customers

    I purchased the pro edition of this app called “RadarCast” for full price. That used to be the way you got the pro features notably Futurecast. That app seems to not be getting updates any more, and in fact seems to have been discontinued. Fair enough - that is the developer’s choice to make. The problem however is that app seems to have been intentionally crippled, by WeatherSphere intentionally disabling back-end servers over the past few weeks, to ween users over to this app in order to to force them to buy the lucrative new subscription service just to get the features they already paid for. This is dishonest. I will complain to Apple next week, and at least get a refund on RadarCast.
  • Crippled existing functionality without subscription

    By SvenNewNick88
    This was useful to see the progress of storms, and what to expect. It looks like now any future forecast displays require a monthly subscription. Deleting the app.
  • Stopped working

    By Timmmay82
    For what is essentially a basic app that reads data from NOAA, this front end doesn’t even work. I paid for this and it worked for years then just died. Just script and sql errors when I go into menu options, and no longer updates radar. I tried resetting password, signing back in, is dead.
  • Junk

    By K2EXPLn7
    I paid 7.99 for this App three years ago. Worked well, then came the upgrade. Complete garbage, and now I have to pay again for mediocre garbage. Thank you for stealing my money. Go to Wunderground folks, it’s free and works!
