  • Great App!

    by WeatherMan001

    What you guys should do is: -Add more locations such as typing our zip codes in. -Add more stations not for just big cities. Other than that this app is fantastic!

  • What I think of NOAA

    by Salden59

    I take the information that NOAA delivers as the best report. You do such a great job in keeping it up to date. Thank you for all you do for the public.

  • Great alert system

    by Green banana808

    I have always loved the warm NOAA voice transmitting the weather. Not only can you listen to any transmission, but the alerts are lighting fast. With the resent bout of bad weather, my alert buzz from my iPhone has been my first warning. Love it!

  • Weather radio alert feature is nice

    by tumblweed

    Replaces a Wx radio in most areas. 1 less thing to carry in my backpack. Makes my day easier. As a Commercial Vehicle driver in Minneapolis, its helpful for severe wx warnings and Snow. Plenty of competing pruducts with annoying ad support.

  • This is a must have App

    by oldhunter1951

    This is my goto App for weather. It makes your phone a mini Emergency radio. Easy to set up and use.

  • Great weather info at your fingertips

    by N I n j a g o

    This is an excellent ap since it provides access to a lot of weather info very quickly. My only issue has been the current weather information has been incorrect sometimes.

  • Awesome App

    by Nurse Leah

    I think it's an A++++++ I am a year round runner and camper and I need an awesome weather alert and predictions! I have it with this spot on app!

  • Fantastic weather radio

    by RVR57

    I've always used NOAA weather radios in the past. I've been looking for a good iPad app that not only provided the NOAA radio broadcast but also the NOAA alerts. This app does it perfectly! The support for this app is excellent, the developers are very quick to respond to any questions.

  • Good and getting better

    by CR1958

    Useful app and easy to use. Please keep adding live feeds, State College, PA, specifically.

  • Good app for the price

    by Termicobra03

    Need to have working radio alert stations. There is none in a major city like lafayette indiana but one in monticello that doesn't even work. Great up, needs to be simplified to get to the weather map as well as the state or city.

  • Great App

    by Jrc1971

    One of the few apps I actually paid for. It was worth the VERY small cost. It's great for traveling, as well as being at home or work. There was one small glitch for a bit with the DFW Weather Radio(not the app author's fault, it's a general web-wide issue with streaming NOAA radio from DFW), however, they located and published an alternate stream and all is back to normal. It alerts you when NWS issues weather alerts, has radar, the whole package. Definitely recommended.

    Great weather app. It's about all you need!

  • Awesome!

    by mrkleen65

    This is a great app! Living in the Midwest I've had a weather radio at home for several years. Now I can take it with me.

  • Great tool to stay informed

    by KPMG guy

    This is a great app for us to stay informed in tornado and hurricane country. Far more reliable than a traditional weather radio.

  • Was a great app

    by murfgurl

    After new up date our local station does not work and were having a bad storm please try to get the problem fixed ASAP if you could please fix Des Moines Iowa I would give this app 5 stars cause other then our radio station not working this is a very good app

  • No Louisville!!!!!!!!!

    by King Tommy 3

    This app isn't allowing me to use the Louisville radio. Waste of money.

  • Love!

    by Rhast69

    I love this app! I can listen to my own weather in Arkansas, or my daughter's in New Jersey! More live stations would be nice, though.

  • Both for amateurs and professionals

    by petyapete

    If you want a wide array of data points and solid forecasts you can't do better than this weather app. Not colorful or fancy, it gives good warnings and good science. A lot more exact than most other apps!

  • Works well!

    by Dr. David C. Lewis

    Pretty good app for weather. Sometimes has clarity issues but well worth it.

  • Great Weather Radio Aoo

    by Blitz00

    Great app! Very happy with it!

  • Waste

    by zhmdngr

    Just wasted $2. Would be nice to be able see participating stations before purchase. There are none relevant to me available.

  • Useful for anyone who dosent live under a rock.

    by Cole9040

    As an OTR truck driver I start every day with doing paperwork and listening to the weather station for the area I'm in. FANTASTIC app. Anyone who leaves their home should have this app.

  • Great alternative to weather radio

    by Matthew McConville

    Great app! Weather radio works great as long as it has one for your area. Station coverage is somewhat limited. Maps+ add on is a great feature as well.

  • Great app

    by Silk7530

    I love this app! I like that it lets me know when bad weather is approaching.

    by Mad Czar

    Very helpful app.

  • Very helpful service

    by RAM 47

    Noah weather service is great. I live in Plainfield, IN. I can't connect with Indianapolis service. It's like I'm crossing over to some other station. I used to be able to hook up. Maybe a fix is possible. Thanks

  • Love the alerts!

    by Gourmand Girl

    Great app for severe weather. Love being able to read the actual weather statements. Also enjoy listening to weather radio stations. Especially useful this winter in Chicago & for travel.

  • Informational! ⭐⭐⭐

    by LinseyRae

    At first I was confused I could find Oklahoma City but not our small town but all you have to do is set alerts to your county and bam it goes off just like the noise on TV which notifies you perfectly! It also has radar and several different features I haven't even checked out yet. To me its worth having. :-)

  • Great app!

    by Exect_98

    The app is informative and updated frequently to keep us informed. The warnings are a big help to plan our contractors services. Thanks!

  • Little bit clumsy but ok

  • I love this app!

    by jpa331

    I love this app. Definitely worth the purchase. Works like a weather radio and has helped keep our family safe on more than one occasion!

  • Noaa weather

    by Toxilady

    Ok app, but seems to fail when I need it most.

  • Good app

    by SpaDivaPeggy

    Good app that keeps me up-to-date with weather conditions. Most times I get notified even before my local news stations post warnings

  • Love it!!!

    by Mr5791113

    This app has been a life saver. When our electric is out and all I have is 3G this app gives me the important life saving weather info I need. Thank you!

  • Awesome App--PERIOD.

    by Magoo's Dad

    I TRULY enjoy this app. You ALWAYS have an up-to-date ACCURATE forecast at your finger tips. I listen 2...3...4 times a day. A MUST HAVE for weather junkies!

  • A number one

    by Bim1959

    This is the best it gets. You cant beat this!!!!

  • This app could save your life!

    by JimboJames100

    This app could save your life! Need more stations closer to my location.

  • none

    by Weather Buff Satisfied

    It needed a little help at first, because the station in my area (Kansas City) was offline all the time. But once I reported it, the developer got on it right away and fixed it. This app is nicely laid out and has lots of relevant data for a weather buff like myself.

  • Good app

    by Retiredf5

    Gives timely info thats accurate

  • Request

    by S Gribble

    I would love to see the Chatsworth, Ga station online. That's why I purchased this App!

  • Great app

    by James Wright

    I love it. Very convenient to be able to select nearby stations.

  • Too little. Too seldom.

    by Mr. Luigi

    Too many ADVERTISED stations offline too often. Incredibly frustrating.

  • Love it!

    by Sarah Downey

    I'm obsessed with weather, living in MS we don't get much winter excitement so when we do, NOAA is the app to use! My local news/weather apps don't even compare.

  • Pricey but good.

    by k9alliance

    The weather radio alert system and radio stations work very well and the app has been a dependable source for severe weather alerts. Moreover, the alerts have come in even without a wifi connection. I recommend this app, and the only reason it won't get a 5 from me is the price.

  • Disappointed

    by Jumps77

    When I 1st got this app and saw a station for Mankato MN listed I was happy until I clicked on it and it said it was offline. Now several months later it is still offline. What's up with that. The app is useless if I can't get coverage for where I'm at.

  • Great App

    by Joey Reyes

    When the weather turns nasty, this is the weather app I turn to. Whether it be severe thunderstorms, possible Tornados or a blizzard. My Alerts go off and I am informed ahead of time. I have even informed ppl that have other weather apps of severe weather before there app informed them. Joe Reyes

  • An App That Can Save Your Life

    by The C12 Scribe

    Out if all the apps I use, this one has a REAL impact on my life and the lives of my family. Immediate and accurate warnings have given us the info and time needed to prepare for nature's worst. My family STRONGLY recommends this for those who don't want to get caught in really bad weather (storms, floods, tornadoes, hail, snow, lightening) while in the office, driving, boating or sleeping.

  • NOAA app

    by 34rod

    A decent weather app with much vital information. It would be nicer however if it included a major weather tracking station that would be closer to my area. The weather radio in my car and in my table radio operate out of State College PA which is a NOAA station but it is not offered in this app. Nor is the NOAA station at the Baltimore Washington International Airport. The lack of a closer NOAA broadcast alert station is my reason for not upgrading this app at any cost. I don't need weather reports or alerts for areas over 100 miles from where I live and work. Without closer weather locations the alert potion of this app is nearly worthless. The radar portion is good but lacks info. I also use the Aviation weather app in conjunction with this one to get a better understanding of weather events in my area. If the sellers want money for this app they need to make it more relevant to the user's location.

  • Peb1974

    by Phillip Babcock

    Need a feature letting you get alerts for city and state currently in. Instant location finding and weather for that area.

  • "Weather Enthusiast"

    by Jorge Richter

    Noaa radio is great when it comes to important updates for serious to severe weather-related events. I enjoy being able to listen to live-streamed radio stations from around the states. The only issue I have is that I wish I had a dedicated one for my area. The closest reporting station is Waco, TX. (WXK-35) , and that is not available on the station list. It's unfortunate that there are not more dedicated reporting stations.

  • Good buy, very detailed, and accessible.

    by David denne

    The notifications do indeed work like they say they do. Pretty instant. This application gives a good amount of detail and provides it in an accessible format that works with voiceover, a screenreader four the visually impaired. As far as I can tell everything is labeled correctly and everything. I like the way The alerts themselves are presented as well. Good job and I do look forward to those updates. You've got my support

  • Great weather radio

    by Adevines

    I love that I get watches and warning on my phone no matter where I am. The warning sound even alert when I have my phone on vibrate so I don't miss it. Very pleased with all the map options as well.

  • Great app!

    by starle01

    This is a great app that makes a tone alert to notify you of severe weather, which is great. Nice to have when on vacation to keep you aware.

  • Love it!

    by Ange2906

    This app works well, and does what it says it will.

  • Great App!

    by axlefoley91

    This app is great for storm warnings and it really keeps me up to date! The only downside is the alarm scares the crap out of me when I'm asleep.

  • Keeps us safe!

    by BusyMomJenn

    I can depend On NOAA Weather Radio to send me weather alerts to help protect me and my family. It is reliable and is always with me, since it is on my phone!

  • Great App

    This is my go to App when I am getting ready to go on the boat

  • Useful app!

    by Pier1328

    Great app when you need it! With Spring coming, you can have a little peace knowing these guys have eyes on the skies.

  • Good, but could be great

    by Qcagolfer

    Lots of info in one app. Love all the features and the tech support was friendly, very help and fast to answer a question. Highly recommend for weather nits like me.

  • My Weather App of Choice

    by Charles Dobbs

    I travel a lot and this app helps me get accurate forecasts throughout the U.S.

  • Excellent app

    by Captain Quickdraw

    I rely on this app when I travel… And it is nice to know that the weather in Puerto Rico is so nice most of the year

  • Amazing app! :)

    by millerd16

    This is exactly what I was looking for when it comes to a weather radio app for iPhone. Keep up the good work!!! :)

  • Very useful app during major weather events

    by Lorena Lane

    I've relied on the NOAA radio app numerous times during major weather events here in the Midwest. It is very useful and helps me to prepare in advance of snow storms, thunderstorms, tornadoes, etc.

  • Lifesaver

    by Mom of all girls

    The weather alert alarms are a lifesaver here in the Midwest.

  • Love this app

    by Old but living

    I have found this app to work great. It is like having a weather radio always with you. Forecasts are accurate and appears other weather apps I use take their alerts word for word from this one. I like that I can access other states and cities where I may be traveling to check weather conditions and forecasts there. Sometime a city station might not be on the air at a particular time but that is understandable given the complexity of the vast coverage areas and fact that some are only covered with limited staff. I would recommend this app.

  • Excellent

    by lodrodorje

    Very helpful.

  • Essential App

    by HMDQ

    This App has saved me at home and on several road trips by keeping me informed of hazardous weather conditions.

  • Great app!

    by Coveyhntr

    Well designed, great info, my go to app for weather emergencies!

  • A great App! Quit Whining!

    by thxbruce

    Being a weather geek, I have tried many weather Apps and I find I always come back to this one. I highly recommend the "Radar +" purchase. The precision of that part alone is worth getting this app.

  • More channels

    by Avidilmon9702

    I wish that the saddleback station in Deerfield or the Pembroke station were available as the weather in Holderness does me no good down here

  • Great App

    by I'm A Wanderer

    I travel a lot in an RV and knowing what's up ahead, weather-wise, can be a life saver. Yes, this app has a few small issues to work out, but I'm sure they will. As it stands now though, on the safety side, it's great. Knowing where storms are and how close dangerous lightning is, helps me navigate safer routes. Keep up the good work guys!

  • Mostly there when I need it.

    by RKragnes

    i've had pretty good experiences with this app giving me timely alerts and connecting me with my station. However, here are some possible improvements to make it even better. 1. Provide a way of reporting stations which don't work directly to the app developer. Station people seem to get irritated when I report their station isn't working on the app. They are correct that it truly is the app developer's responsibility to fix the problems. 2. Try to have connections to as many stations as possible. I want to keep an eye on weather where my parents are, but I can't reach their station in northwest Iowa through the decision tree for choosing favorite stations.

  • Great app for severe weather

    by Jeff Paul

    Great app. Has alerted me to tornadoes and other nasty weather when no other app would. Love the basic radar too. It's not too showy and is very detailed.

  • Could be much better

    by Weathertracker

    I miss push alerts. I used to get them but not any more. I don't know why my local New York station located in upton ny is no longer offered. Then my river head ny station is off line frequently.

  • Indispensable tool for trip planning

    by DPALM42

    This great weather app brings NOAA radio, text alerts, radar maps and more to iPhone users who know how to use them. Even more detailed radar and texts can be added via in app purchase. Well worth the cost for the convenience this cool tool brings to marine as well as terrestrial trip planning.

  • Doesn't work

    by Jeffreywitchdoctor

    Ironic that the first screenshot is of a Kansas City Radio station, since it will not pick up any of the KC stations. If you can verify you will get local stations, it might be worth it. This app is a 2.99 gamble, if you are about to pay... Good luck.

  • Junk!!!!!!

    by mark zucker

    do NOT buy....most of the major cities listed dont have a working station attached. A scam as far as Im concerned......

  • Awesome

    by Rcshanet

    Best weather app period.

  • Something Changed

    by TlovesJ93

    The watches and warnings come anytime, day or night, but they seem to give less warning than they used to. We can upload as many counties as we want to receive alerts on what may be heading our way. And the app really sounds like a NOAA Weather Radio when it alerts us. I do wish we could select how often it alerts us for same county without having to remove the push alert to silence it. Thank you for making the product.
