Update II: Very nice update with support for ‘events’. This version is very performant with buttery silk scrolling and animations on my new XS Max. I highly recommend giving Weather Up a look, and I look forward to seeing it improve in the coming months. Still hoping they decide to invest in a more accurate source for weather data. I’ve never heard of the one they use (which has now been removed from the Contrast website). Update: I decided to subscribe for a few months to see how well the app is supported and to get a chance to experience the app sans ads. I’ve never heard of the weather source that Weather Atlas uses. In my experience, it’s not even close to accurate. I’m not sure why they didn’t invest in a more premium provider such as Dark Sky. WA very seldom receives updates, and this dev shop has a history of dropping support for apps, after a short period of time. On my iPhone X, the ads really clutter up the UI and make it impossible to fully evaluate this app objectively. They are such an eyesore. Hello Weather and Carrot Weather are both far better apps that also receive regular updates and feature upgrades. Update: When this app was initially released, I was reticent to download it bc I remember this same dev shop abandoning a previous weather app only 12-18 months after release. My skepticism was well founded, as it took 4 months for them to respond to my feedback. Furthermore, this app hasn’t been updated in over 7 months.
Sunday’s forecast in the app is for light snow, 2 inches. Why does the weather alert then list a major blizzard capable of producing 15-22 inches of snow? Luckily precipitation totals are hard to find. Coincidence?
Google ads don’t go away after purchasing the “Pro” upgrade, so definitely don’t pay to remove the ads.
Great UI, best I’ve seen yet imo. Good amount/type of information. Nice features like icon selection, etc. This app lacks having storm tracks and is completely missing iOS notifications. It has weather alerts but you won’t get a notification until you open the app. WTH??? Also there are multiple widgets which is highly annoying. Make one and make it customizable. The best weather widget imo is the NBC news weather widget which is similar to the stock iOS weather widget but has more information. I paid to get rid of ads because here is nothing more annoying in a weather app than ads. If the app improves to my liking before renewal, I’ll keep paying. If not, I’m done. * Update * I’ve been coming back from time to time to give this app another try but I realized the weather data was inaccurate most of the time. You really need to get that right first. All the other features don’t mean squat if the app can’t do what it’s supposed to.
I paid for the ad free subscription but I was still getting ads. I submitted a service ticket, they responded, and now all is well. Sterling service!
This app is not bad however I paid for the pro version and it just keeps playing ads.
I check the weather on my phone a lot more often now. Weather Up is simply a delight to use. So carefully considered in every facet of interaction. I do kind of miss the Dark Sky-style "will it rain in the next hour" hyper-local forecasting, and it would be nice if locations synced across devices, but those small nits should in no way discourage you from trying this app. Once you do that, my guess is that you'll want to buy a subscription.
Super hyped about the possibilities of this app. I paid for the ad free version so I could see my appointments and the weather together. Needless to say I have yet to see one local appointment synced with my iPhone Calendar. I wasted my money and $10 for an app is ridiculous. I’m very let down
One of the few, if any, apps using location that doesn’t see your data. Works well for me.
