  • The best one I've found

    by Laurelinaz

    I have the paid version of NOAA and also Wunderground. I've tried lots of others. This is the best one. It can be set to your own area. I live in the Caribbean and this app gives me everything I need to know, including high surf, earthquakes, tropical weather, etc.

  • Newest update

    by TeacherAmy12

    Please move the hourly button back where it was!

  • :)

    by Perfect weather app 4 me

    Shows 10 forecast, hourly, daily for your current location or a specific location. Small advertisements at top of screen not big popups.

  • Love it

  • Works great again

    by bootskipper

    Very happy with this app now that it's fixed

  • Yay!

    by Pardon please

  • Update needs uninstall reinstall

    by Pamtha

    Along with the other reviewers, the update just made the app stop launching. The fix was to delete and reinstall the new version of the app. A little annoying, but a 15 min fix. Will come back later to review enhanced functionality.

  • Was Good

    by Shadrach3578

    After applying the latest update the app doesn't open anymore! Loved the app before this; fix it quick

  • Broken app

    by Frisco12

    Ever since I updated this app this am, it won't open. I use this app throughout my day. Please PLEASE fix!!!!

  • Won't open after update!

    by Aebrownl

  • Awesome

    by Spiderstrings

    Awesome! Always accurate

  • Awesome! Kicks TWC's butt!!

    by Eyeonthesky

    Tons of functions and really reliable!! Thanx!!

  • Just what I needed!

    by Its2005

    I got this app back in August on my Droid, and had to get it on my new iPhone. It got my wife and I through hurricane Irene and keeps us up to date when the power is out. This is the best way to stay on top of bad weather. Thanks Jim, Andrew, Kevin and Ross!

  • Latest version

    by CP Sipes

    The latest version doesn't show the 10 day forecast right. The second week covers over the first week which is the main one you want to see. The previous version worked ok. Maybe they'll fix it soon.

  • Great!

    by RLNCofC

    Great weather app!

  • Forget TWC app. This one has it

    by Gustopher in Virginia

    I downloaded this awhile back while watching Andrew Frieden one morning. Absolutely LOVE the horizontal display of weather map. During Hurricane Irene tracking, this app was updating precip, storm tracks, all-in-all, this gave me everything I was trying to find. Would like to see scrollable location selection, but the storm tools are spot on. Thanks, TV12. Oh yeah, it's not limited to local weather; I've used this Nationwide Gustopher

  • New update 8/22/11 I love it

  • Very helpful

    by Ryan nightbloom

    Helps when  comes or a tornados

  • Great Radar!

    by Showcorvettelove

    I'm from Cincinnati and found this app on accident. The radar is priceless especially during our tornado season here. Seeing what areas are tornadic, strong, etc and where they are heading is beyond amazing for me!

  • A bit slow with updates of radar images.

    by Dsm_video

    Too slow on updating radar info. 7-8 mins is too long compared to other apps. Alert notifications are helpful. Unless you have a big storm over you and it won't connect to their network. Epic failure btw. I needed it during a bad bad storm and wouldn't connect so I used 6 news weather app which worked.

  • Crash
