I deleted this app the second I read their privacy policy and TOA. One star is too generous.

READ THE PRIVACY POLICY AND TOA. It’s lengthy, I know, it’s intentional to dissuade people from reading and understanding it. It’s worth the 5-7 minutes of your life, I promise. Apparently, it’s too much to ask for a simple weather app in 2019 without subjecting yourself to risks known and unknown; all completely out of your control and all so a company can make a profit at the literal expense of its consumers who are the real product. If you have zero concerns with being tracked 24/7 and your precise location being shared; don’t care about your information being monetized and sold to third party sellers whose intentions you know nothing about; unfazed by the strong possibility of your information being leaked and misused; apathetic to your information being sold numerous times a day; or disinterested in the extensive and intrusive methods used in this economic model then, by all means, disregard this review and enjoy your weather app. Personally, I’ll be checking the weather manually from a browser since the weather app industry has proven themselves to be untrustworthy and not at all concerned with consumers (you know, actual human beings) or their privacy. All of this just so people can sell you crap. This truly is the darkest timeline. All I wanted to do is check the weather...

Best weather app to date!!

I live in NW New Jersey, and let me tell you when weather bug says it’s going to snow at 3:30 you can count on it snowing at 3:30 that goes with the rain as well and thank god for the lightning strike alerts for work. I just overall love using weather bug you can also look at other peoples weather related or pet photos, It truly is a great APP. Kris

Motorcycle rider who loves this

This app has been my go-to for weather information for a while now, and I’m very pleased. I’ve found it to be very accurate and I love the “live” weather overview. I commute on a motorcycle and this app has saved me from several wet situations. Very recommended!

The daily forecast doesn’t always match the hourly forecast. What to do then?
By jmdaia

Dependable and helpful.

I’ve used several apps and this is the one that has stayed on my phone. Thanks.

I’m surprised so many of the reviews that pop up on the app page are negative. I love WeatherBug and have used it for years. My only reason for not giving it 5 stars is because it is not 100% accurate. I live in the mountains of NC in a community that is considered near the foothills, but actually has higher elevation. We get quite a few pop up showers here that WeatherBug apparently can’t detect. It will show the current weather as sunny when it is raining. But, I understand they can’t have towers everywhere and even local forecasters don’t accurately predict these kinds of showers. I use this app along with My Weather Radar prop and I like them both. I have never had the app crash, thank the Lord, and with the exception of the pop up showers it is typically accurate to +/- 3 degrees.
