  • Great weather radar app

    By Ourdoor guy
    I have used this app for several months. You can see the weather occurring real time. It’s great for timing outdoor events to avoid the rain.
  • False Scores!!!!

    By Maxax777
    The reviews on this app and the Star Rating has obviously been falsified!!! This use to be a great radar until the greedy new owners destroyed it! Just read through the history of the reviews!!! It is NOT a 4.6 Star App!!! It has slowly gotten a bit better since they initially destroyed it - but it is DEFINITELY NOT A 4.6 Star App!!!

    8/17/18 !-->FAKE RATINGS<--! DO NOT BELIEVE THE CURRENT RATINGS! The previous versions 2.X were what had all the 5 star reviews the current version 3.X averages 1 or less stars. weathersphere has repeatedly played with the ratings start dates rolling old ratings into the new ratings to improperly represent the current pathetic and poor excuse for an update. The latest update is still a fraction of what the old app was. As of 10/3/17 the previous version V2.1 has stopped working. When the July update turned out to be complete garbage I was able to roll back from a previous backup, I squeezed another few months out of V2.1 sadly it is done. July 2017 Review- I have had this app for the past 3 or 4 years up until now this has been a great app the latest update has removed just about everything that made this app the best. They have limited what the user can adjust for preferences, no longer able to step through past radar, and I no longer see the wild fire information available this is extremely helpful when traveling out west. This use to be my "go to" weather app but sadly it has become garbage. The team the rewrote the app and those that approved it should be given their walking papers. Roll it back to the previous version and call it good.

    Slow and inaccurate. Weather app much better. Waste of money.
  • To be clearer: Radar Cast Elite 3.0

    By SkiandRun
    Here is the proof you are all liars and lawsuits have been approved across the country. Radar Cast Elite 3.0 is a one time paid app that included the following: future radar, push notifications for lightning and precipitation, driving directions, and lightning strikes. All of which have been taken away from PAID users. This again is what we already paid for already. Asking for paid users to pay for these again is criminal. Making an excuse saying it was discontinued is a lie. The app is still in the App Store as the so called update current version. It would be wise not make the users pay again for features already paid. Or expect lawsuits to continue. PS: a lot of us have done research to know you continue to lie to the general public.
  • Stopped working

    By 757captain
    As of today, August 16, 2018, the App has stopped working. It either loads EXTREMELY slowly, or it doesn’t load at all. Something is wrong. Not much use the way it is.
  • Too slow

    By BT737
    As a professional pilot I’m picky about my radar. This radar app is way too slow, no future options (without buying more) and very precise.
  • Slow

    By wailuaok
    Slow, slow, slow... grindingly slow..
  • doesn’t load right away

    By Foxy Sausage
    have to open and close app multiple times
  • Eh.

    By elizkn
    For some reason, it’s been very slow lately. Just updated the app and still no major improvement. Used to be very good, but not sure what happened!
