MyRadar Weather Radar for Negative User Reviews

Not working in CanadaHave always liked the App, just loaded it on my new 2018 iPad and clouds and precipitation does not show. Old iPad worked fine..Version: 6.2.3

Old Radar Loop, 60% accurate, crashes etcThe “live radar” loop runs 2 hours ~20 mins past time. The will rain or storm times graph & time feature is wrong 60% of the time. I have my home marked with a star ( it only allows me to 1 star location tho) Worst is it gives me weather, alerts & warnings for a town 15 + miles away, in a different county that gets different weather & warnings. Ugh. When we were traveling and hit bad weather it was a worthless app. It kept kicking me back home 400+miles then kept crashing all cause I was trying to pull weather from my current location. It started draining my battery, freezing, unavailable data, crashing. If I’m home in my marked Location the app never freezes, crashes, etc. My husband uses a NOAA app (free) and I thought I was downloading the same one he has. No this one is horrible compared to the one he uses. The one he uses gives him current road conditions/warnings/accidents/ radar etc as he’s traveling and actually shows the town we live closest to (3 miles) correct county & he has locations (stars) marked all over the place. The (free) NOAA app he uses didn’t have a melt down when we were out of town or traveling and worked great.. I’m uninstalling this app and looking for the app my husband uses..Idk why so many different NOAA apps are available but lessons learned they are not all equal. The one he uses offers upgrades but the free version works good & has adds just like this one..Version: 6.4.2

UselessIt has been raining here all night but this app shows nothing on the rain radar. It is broken, do not buy..Version: 6.11.1

No free versionNo free version so hard to check it without spending money. Just subscribed to yearly plan. One this don’t like at the start. Watch compilation will show sun during night. My be minor for someone but it’s clearly wrong. Please fix. See how it goes for here.Version: 6.13.1

I Miss the Old Storm app!!Is there a way to see the future radar like the old Storm app? Is that in the premium packet because my radar ends 10 mins before the actual time & I want to know the forecast radar for the next hour. Also, if I press on a fire icon & read about it, when I go bk to the map, the time on the animation slider becomes 8 hours off. I don’t think the actual radar changes. I only know that I have to close & reopen the app to get the time back to ending 10 minutes before the actual time. This makes me wonder if I can trust the accuracy of this app. Plus, it’s been raining here nonstop for 6 hours but the radar shows periods of no rain. It’s also really annoying when the slightest tap or zooming in on the map will start changing the cities up above because of the crosshairs. And when I swipe left, or right to scroll through my favorite cities, nothing happens- it won’t scroll through the cities even though the stars are highlighted. I miss being able to zoom in & see exactly where it’s going to be raining & being able to chose between 1 hour or 5 hours in the future & clicking on the storm cells & find out the speed & the danger associated with each one, as I could in the old Storm app. It truly was the best weather app out there! I will change my 2 star rating if I can find the future radar..Version: 6.2.3

Lost mojoThis app was invaluable when I first downloaded it. The rainfall mapping and tracking was a great aid to planning walks. Something changed in recent months and the rainfall data is now useless. Clear skies are shown as heavy rain showers pass through. This is not a temporary glitch, many updates have come and gone without any noticeable improvement. I can only guess the developer is sourcing live weather data from an alternative provider. MyRadar was a great app but has now lost its mojo. Deleted as I’ve found better providers for the information I need..Version: 7.7.0

Used to be amazing. Now completely inaccurate in the UK!Please fix the UK radar. Completely useless for the last few weeks..Version: 6.7.0

New updateI love the app, it use to be so easy to navigate around the map/world, I don’t know what happened but since one of the updates now everytime you go to move around it zooms you in, so it takes you FOREVER to get to a spot or even check out the map. I use to use it all the time but this has made me use other apps:(.Version: 7.40.0

A terrific app that needs to be fixed after a recent update damaged it.This is a wonderful app that I have been using for many years on multiple devices. And although there have been a few snafus here and there after an update or two it’s usually quickly rectified. Unfortunately an update that occurred roughly 7 to 10 days ago has changed how the map is displayed. Many of the towns and cities that used to be displayed even in a non-zoomed mode are gone, and the roads/highways are like looking at tree branches on a moonlit night. And if you zoom in the radar images get quite blocky looking. Was hoping the update that came out today would fix these problems but it hasn’t. And even though I have written the developer a few times I have not received a response so I thought maybe writing a review might get someone’s attention. Normally I would give this app five stars but until this problem is fixed I can only give it three stars. I still recommend it, I just hope that this problem is addressed and fixed soon. Thanks for reading, have a great day! 🙂.Version: 7.20.0

Questionable accuracyNot sure how much I trust this weather it’s telling me that it’s 32deg c outside right now and calm but it’s gusting winds and 4 deg radar seems decent but who knows..Version: 7.39.0

Great app - but wish radar went past present timeLove the app but wish the radar map would show the movements past the present time, like 2-3 hours past..Version: 7.37.0

Full of ads, $15 a month RIP OFF.I’m sorry. But if you think your premium features are worth more then Spotify, and more then Netflix subscriptions you have ROCKS in your head. Was looking to pay $10 outright. But alas, greed has locked you out of my pockets. Good luck with your horrifically expensive sub model. Your a fool to give these guys so much money a month to remove ads. Plenty of other apps offering similar for MUCH less. Glossy app, not even remotely worth the money they are asking..Version: 7.42.1

LOOK MOST RECENT REVIEWS ALWAYSThis app sucks what you SEE is NOT WHAT YOU GET what you get that’s only for premium prescription you can’t even tell where a weather system iS COMPLETELY GARBAGE I get free radar better off of Google DO NOT GET.Version: 7.44.0

Handy app -use it a lotThis app is handy and I use it a lot. Would like to see the radar predict further fireard in time though. If you look at the storm tracking bit at 7pm it shows you from 630 to 655pm. Not overly relevant info at that point. Thats why only three stars..Version: 7.34.0

PThanks buddy r n.Version: 7.34.0

What happened ?When i downloaded this about a month ago and it worked well, but now everyday I get light rain warnings and most of the time it’s a clear sky..Version: 7.34.0

Now not worth itI have been using this app for years now. I have recommended it to many friends. Just now as I write this we just came out of an active tornado warning. I have always used this app in conjunction with other apps to make sure we are safe or need to seek shelter, being in a tornado prone area. This app had always refreshed its radar roughly every 5 minutes. That had allowed me to read the direction of storms and help to determine our risk. This time this app during an active tornado warning didn't update the radar for more than 35 minutes. Being as I depended on this radar feed to be active, it kind of put us in danger not knowing from this app our live timing of the rotation via radar. In a tornado situation every bit of information is life or death. I can no longer trust the radar in this app to be up to date on its timing. I double checked before submitting this review and it has been now more than 40 minutes with force restarting the app and my phone to try to get a live radar update and it is still recycling the same single 5 second radar view over and over. This is now worthless to me..Version: 7.35.0

Stop commercials.The radar info is great. The commercial adds need to be stopped..Version: 5.2.2

Broken in the UK?Since the global satellite enhancement update this app no longer shows rain accurately. Yesterday we had thunderstorms and currently it’s raining, but MyRadar shows nothing in my area. I tried disabling global satellite enhancement but it makes no difference. It was working fine a few updates back..Version: 6.7.0

Ye were a good app, until ye weren’t.I’ve used this app for years on at least 3 iPhone upgrades. I paid for app upgrades and relied on its accuracy. Recommended it to my friends. After the most recent upgrade (adding reporting for Australia), the app crashed EVERY time I opened it from a Home Screen alert. After tolerating this bad behavior for a week or so, I decided to delete the app and reinstall it, thinking it might have become corrupted and a fresh copy would work. Well, that was a bad idea! The top panels for local and favorite locations disappeared and radar animations look like giant colored squares, larger than pixels. The app is unusable. I sent a tech report a few days ago and had no response. Tried to create an account, thinking they might pay attention to me if I’m an account holder, but account setup doesn’t work. If I were spiteful, I’d give the app one star. Because it was very good when it worked, I’m allowing 2 more stars. But now that it doesn’t work and the developer doesn’t seem to care, I’m deleting it and looking for another app. It was fun while it lasted..Version: 7.44.0

Where did the good app go??Open the app and see the local radar…Boom! Swipe left or right through my favorite locations and see the radar for those places…Boom! That’s what used to happen. Simple, perfect; I couldn’t ask for much more. Now I don’t see the radar. I see the data instead. Then I can’t slide the panel up for several seconds, and when I finally can I am greeted by the radar for the entire western hemisphere. What is up?? This app no longer does what I need to do quickly and efficiently, the reason I installed it a long time ago in the first place. Swiping from one favorite location to the next Is no longer reliable, either doing nothing or including places that I’ve never heard of and did not mark. When I tell it to locate me, I get a dot at my location on a map of the entire western hemisphere, and then zooming in doesn’t happen smoothly and I end up in the middle of the Gulf of Mexico, after which I have to zoom back out and then try to zoom back in. I don’t see any reason to keep this app any longer. And when this app is in the foreground my phone begins to heat up; and I just went through the battery replacement thing so I don’t want to toast my new battery..Version: 6.4.2

THIS APP SELL YOUR LOCATION TO 3RD PARTIESI loved MyRadar it was so well designed helped me figure out if I should stay inside & wait 5 minutes to stay dry or go out side & bite the bullet on getting wet. It was Truly a wonderful app, which is why it blows my mind that they decided to SELL THEIR USER’S LOCATION TO DATA MONETIZATION COMPANIES MAKE A LITTLE EXTRA MONEY. I understand apps need to make money I get that, but selling my & every other users’ location to make money is unethical. One might so “oh everyone sells your data what’s the big deal” all of it to me is immoral but this app goes above and beyond the levels of immortality by selling “both precise location and other sensitive customer data to data monetization companies "at all times, constantly" sometimes without customers being aware of the location data collection. The information is used for purposes like creating databases for ad targeting.” Even if this app pledges to stop selling my CURRENT LOCATION I won’t re-download, how can I trust them? If there were any staff who worked on this app & didn’t know about this I’m sorry that this is impacting you. But to the screwup leadership that made the decision to SELL OUR CURRENT LOCATION I’m glad that this story is finally out in the open. Nobody will trust you now..Version: 6.1.0

It’s okGreat weather info. Wanted to used this for flying, but not in the USA, the rest of the WORLD uses hPa not in/Mg pressure unit. So guess this is only for aviators in America?????? Would have also been nice to see how the aero charts look before spending £20. Better to use Runway HD or SkyDemons built in weather for free..Version: 5.6.6

Radar OnlyThis is a great app for the radar picture, really top notch. I hate to say anything negative but …. Don’t you hate buts? I have another weather app that I have to have open if I wish to know the temperature. This one says it is 88 degrees right now as I write but at nine a.m. and cool 88 is not cool, not at all. The other one says that it’s 61 and I believe that. I have closed the app and restarted it, same 88, rebooted my device, same 88, the crosshairs show over my area, but I am certain that you are going to say that I am doing something wrong when the other app is giving me the correct temp all day long. The temp shows on a panel that takes up a third of my screen. What a waste of space. It gives the correct time and also says 100% chance of rain while just a bit further down it shows NO PRECIPITATION LIKELY. Ok, it did rain two hours ago but its sunny out right now. Not to worry, I still have my original weather device hanging out my window, a rock on a string. If it is wet then it’s raining, white it’s snowing, swinging it’s windy and if I can’t see it then it’s dark. But, really, thanks for the very nice radar. It’s like sitting in a Cadillac and looking all nice and everything but if I actually need to go somewhere I need a VW Bug to get there..Version: 7.45.1

Awful appVery inaccurate app..Version: 7.34.0

The Rain GodThis app has me in stitches. Every time I get a notification that it’s about to rain it’s been blue skies🤣😂 Three stars for the laugh👍.Version: 7.34.0

Once great appWhat was once a great app is now useless. As I sit here watching the rain falling, it tells me the nearest rain is more than 50 miles away and that there is not much of that! Another app is showing a whole weather system coming across my area and that I should expect several hours of continuous, and sometimes heavy, rain. Also the Met Office day the same. The only recommendation that I can now give is to avoid this app. Hopefully it will, one day, be fixed and become useful again. Old Review: Shows several layers of information on a single view. Useful wind-flow information as well as rainfall..Version: 7.6.0

Could be happier if you got it right decisionI would like to say that you are 60% about your warning so showers in 20 minutes or rain in 20 minutes you’re very sadly wrong there I love the way you do it but I love the way it happens and everything like that you’ve got a really good out here but try to get it right that’s more important the app is good you got that part right just get the red weather right I know it’s hard but try to get it right and then I love you.Version: 7.34.0

BEWARE! Auto opts you in to sell your data!I just installed the app as it looked good. Sadly though, it crashed a few times in my first few uses and was really slow to update when I changed a setting. Also, the radar function only shows historic data as opposed to future data (perhaps the latter is in the pro version only? It doesn’t say so unsure) Anyways, as I was checking the settings to find out I saw that there’s a box which set to “off” by default which says “Don’t sell my data to other companies” That’s not legal in the U.K. as it’s a breach of GDPR. so definitely worth being aware of. That was the final nail in the coffin for the app so have opted out and immediately uninstalled..Version: 7.8.0

Love BUTMiss the OLD WIDGET that had and could expand. Lots of Apps have multiple Widget Layouts/Views w/ diff features/info….could MyRadar do a Similar thing; as the small square widget is ok, miss the old full sized expandable widget that INCLUDED IMPORTANT INFO LOOKED AT MANY TIMES THROUGHOUT THE DAY/NITE. Have been using this App since moved to FL over 10 yrs ago. It’s great! The hurricane tracker is excellent & love watching Leslie...(more on this later). Here is where the BUT comes in. With every update we get, granted, the app “DOES” improve.....like the new global feature (something had at start, but went away. Now it’s back), along w/ some other cool features. What isn’t great is loading times. On the new iPad Pro 11” this app “feels” slow & loads slower each update that’s pushed out. I’m worried when iOS 13 hits....what will happen! Also, know Leslie can’t be in every weather report....needs a life, but she’s the face of the App, the person that helped us through hurricane after hurricane when couldn’t get any other information....KEEP that in mind, & keep her put & happy! The newish Fast Forecast isn’t as catchy as old one... All in all, get the app more responsive like used to be, less crashing & will change stars back to 5/5. Until than...dinged you 1.5 stars. Sorry....want it awesome like used to be! My score= 3.5/5.Version: 7.36.0

AnnoyedI can’t provide feedback to them on their website. The captcha continues to fail even though it is verified before I attempt to submit a ticket. I thought I had to create an account to get help, but I can’t even do that. Providing 1 star because I work in tech and reviews with 3 stars were never considered. My main beef is with the temperature range visual. The temperature is always accurate, but the placement of the high, low, and current temperature are never accurate. As of today, the high is 54, low of 41, and current temp of 51. This UI has the low of 41 on the far right of the spectrum, 54 in the middle, and 50 on the left side of the spectrum. Make it make sense. It does not make sense. I also cannot get a good sense of what the color range story is here. The color picked for a specific temperature is random and never the same. The graph is never a constant gradient, sometimes it’s the same color on both ends of the range which signifies to me they must be the same temperature, but that’s not how temperature ranges work. Otherwise, I love the accuracy and alerts, but I’m very annoyed with the one feature (temperature range UI) that is most visible. I just have to close my eyes to the inaccurate visual information that isn’t the current temp. Otherwise I’d give this a solid 5/5..Version: 7.48.0

I am a pilot and make use of this app daily (UPDATE)I have been using the unpaid version of this app almost daily for the last year and it is very handy to do a quick check of any percip. Prior to taking my walks, or going flying etc. and it seems it's always being updated/upgraded in terms of added functionality. Well as is often the case what started off as a great app has become more and more bloated to the point that it’s responsiveness has suffered a great deal. I wouldn’t say it’s unusable yet but it’s getting there. VERY SLOW TO UPDATE. What originally was a Five Star App is now 3 Stars..Version: 7.34.0

MrI installed this over a fortnight ago but despite travelling from Cornwall to London and back again and trying to use the device at various locations between, I have failed to get any weather information at all, each time being told, wherever I was, that the information was "not available". Having been recommended the app by an enthusiastic colleague who had used it in continental Europe, i wonder whether it possibly only works outside the UK!.Version: 3.0.1
