Hi, we're Jonas, Trevor, and Dan, the crew behind Hello Weather. There are a million weather apps out there, and they're all overloaded with ugly ads, confusing interfaces, and stupid gimmicks. We think that stinks, so we made the antidote—a straightforward, no-nonsense app that’s a joy to use. Five reasons why you’ll love planning your day with Hello Weather... 1. All the info you need is right in your face. Our gorgeous, information-rich design shows you everything that matters in one simple screen. You’ll see the current conditions and future forecast in an instant. 2. You won’t waste time looking at useless stuff. Hello Weather intelligently adapts to changing conditions. When it's stormy, you’ll see all the relevant details right upfront. When conditions improve, it’s all tucked neatly out of the way again. 3. You’ll get predictions you can trust. Hello Weather is more than a pretty face. It’s powered by the world’s best data sources: Dark Sky, AccuWeather, The Weather Company, and AerisWeather. Pick the provider that's best in your area, or switch back and forth to compare. (Upgrade required.) 4. You don’t need to be a weather expert. What does barometric pressure mean? Is the dewpoint good or bad? We translated those esoteric stats into human words, so you’ll know how it really feels outside. 5. It’ll make you smile. We filled the app with tons of thoughtful little touches to brighten your day. You’ll love the beautiful color themes, automatic night mode, and sweet secret extras. And that's not all… • Radar’s built right in. When a storm's a-brewin', we've got your back! Our powerful radar tab shows you exactly what's headed your way. (Available in the US, UK, Europe, Canada, Japan, and Australia.) • Apple Watch app, complications, and widgets too!

Apple Watch experience goes to 11

5
I loved this app for my phone and happily gave it five stars. But the new Apple Watch capability deserves an 11! This app shows what an Apple Watch app should be. Intuitive UX, just enough info without crowding the screen-super smart slide for more detail when you want it. I’m super impressed!

Very good app

I really enjoy this app much more than I thought I would. It’s precipitation forecasts are very accurate and helpful when planning park visits.

My watch says “upgrade required “.

I purchased the upgrade for my new I watch. But when I try to use it, it tells me upgrade required. I already upgraded. Does it take a while for the upgrade to take affect?? Kinda bummed

To whom ever developed this app, The only problem with this app is ; that you have to upgrade to the pro fan club to be able to get radar and also need the pro fan club for the Apple Watch app for hello weather. Thanks, Bigdog61

Unable to overlay radar over warnings?

3
Unless I missed something, why am I unable to overlay radar on top of warnings? This is a basic feature for just about all weather apps today, especially paid ones.

CRASHING

Really liked this app until today when it started crashing every time I tried opening it on my watch.

Beautiful and simple yet info-rich

5
Everything I ever wanted in a weather app! It has the accurate weather forecasts of Dark Sky, but is much more readable and beautiful. The color-coded infographics make it easy to check the weather at a glance. Best of all there are no intrusive ads. Even if you choose not to pay for the subscription, there is just one simple, non-distracting banner encouraging you to get an annual sub for full features. I was disappointed that the Apple Watch companion was hidden behind a pay wall, but I was so impressed by the iPhone app that I went ahead and subscribed for a year. In my opinion this is the best weather app on the market, but I can’t help but mention that I feel although the $6.99 annual pricing is manageable, it feels rather steep compared to other weather apps. The inclusion of multiple data sources is a really nice feature but I could live with a few less sources if the annual sub was a few dollars cheaper or if it was a flat one-time fee. All-in-all I am incredibly impressed with these devs. Keep up the great work!

Customer privacy policy

5
This is a trail-blazing weather app and my favorite for many reasons but mostly because of the developers’ stance on privacy and tracking. Too many companies track and bombard customers with messy ads while selling our data on top of charging us for their sketchy ad-laden services anyway! It’s unethical and I’m glad the makers of Hello Weather recognize that. We should demand the same consideration from other service providers across platforms and support those like Hello Weather who get it. The free version is great but I will be happy to subscribe. The only hesitation has been the cringe-inducing terminology associated with subscribing. “Join the Fan Club”? C’mon, guys. Is that actually appealing to anyone? Other than that, as long as the developers continue to honor customer privacy and don’t deviate from their ethics and quality standards, their app is well-worth a yearly subscription. To the developers and team: Great job and thank you!!
