App Reviews

  • Scam!

    By Jasonwc97
    I already paid for this app, and in the new update they started charging me for features I already bought! How is this legal? Extremely disappointed and angry.
  • Crashes on start

    Does not work on IOS 11 iphone 6S. Don't waste your money.
  • Bye Bye

    Even the newest update is bad news. Nothing is like the "Old" app even the relative time. Lol. Either you don't understand the complaint or you're not really listening. People want to scrub with a finger. Bring it back.
  • Testing new version.

    UPDATE 09/12/17: Nee update with lightning restored. Will see how App is going and will update review soon. Was 5/5 at v2.1, 1/5 at v3.1. So for now, I give a 2/5 until this app proves itself. UPDATE 08/27/17: Still no acknowledgement of the already-paid-for features they stole. It's obvious that if they do it once, they'll darn sure do it again. Don't give them a penny. They're now nothing but a scam app developer and deserve recognition as as-such. WeatherBug is a good, free alternative for lightning strikes and other features stolen from this developer. UPDATE 07/30/17: An update claiming they listened to us, yet still have STOLEN functionality from paid app customers. This should be banned from the App Store. REVIEW for v3.1: First, as a Florida resident, we have the most dangerous lightning in the country, and second most dangerous in the world. As such, monitoring of lightning is crucial. This app was my go-to app before this travesty of an update. This feature has been removed. But that's not the half of it. Easily half (if not more) of the features have been removed, and now they're wanting us to pay a monthly fee for impotent versions of those features. What's worst is that this is a PAID app, one I, and many others, paid money for. I'm glad that I have an old version file that I was able to restore. This isn't new among shady and disreputable developers. This one has gone the way of many others in search of a quick buck. What disgusting people at WeatherSphere who would intentionally ruin and app and expect people to pay monthly for a lesser version of WHAT THEY ALREADY PAID FOR. WeatherSphere, you (and disreputable app developers like you) are a cancer on this app store and you deserve nothing but contempt, malice, and every bit of hate you receive for these actions.
  • A Thing of the Past

    Again, stop updating the app. No one cares about Weathersphere. Unless you bring back the app we paid for. Otherwise, get the app off the App Store. You just making this customer service nightmare worse. Apparently you aren't smart enough to know that. Actually that part has gotten kind of funny.
  • Pathetic

    By LaBoii
    I paid for the app and now you're taking the features away and saying I need to pay monthly. Shame on you. Edit 9/19/17 - give me back the app I paid for. Your updates are useless till you do that.
  • Terrible

    By Dkubas
    I just cancelled subscription. Total disaster compared to the old version.
  • New update is so sad

    By Jessamuhca
    This was my favorite weather app. I recommended it to all my friends, and used it almost constantly. Now we hate it. Looks like everyone else does, too. Just let us have the previous version back. Thank you. Some things I miss: Lightning strikes Wildfires Radar that's not overdramatic Manual control of time lapse
  • Once a gem, now crap

    By Yard Sale Troll
    The previous version was great. It was simple and useful. The "new and improved" version doesn't even work 90% of the time. Pay for extras? You gotta be kidding. Adios.
  • Downhill fast..

    By TwnTurboS4
    App was great until some updates a month or two ago which redesigned the app. Not sure when it was exactly, but became much less useful and now will be deleted and replaced.
