I hope apple ban the app.. I would expect this type of behaviour to be against t&c and this is the one of the main reasons I buy Apple devices.
I find Dark Sky to be the most accurate around here. I live near a huge body of water and that greatly affects temperatures so I find that the forecast even for my city could be several degrees different than my home (and the area in general could be off by close to 10 degrees). I think Dark Sky crowd sources weather stations in the area and there must be a few of my neighbors with very accurate uploads as it is generally spot on with my thermometer.http://www.forecastadvisor.com
For US members, here is a website where you can enter your ZIP code and it will tell you the historical accuracy of the various services. The Weather Channel always seems to score well here for my area, so I just stick with the default app that uses TWC for data.
Here is a sample of what you will see after entering your ZIP.
I like the Dark Sky/forecast.io apps, but the accuracy was always bad for me so I dumped them.

Dark Sky is the best at the next hour's rain forecast. In my experience over the last year in Minnesota, other services have been MUCH better for anything longer than an hour away.Another vote for Dark Sky. As someone living in Florida it is the best weather app I've ever used.

I want so much to love Radar Scope Pro but they refuse to add speeds to their loops. One frame at a time is not cool. Look at MyRadar Pro. So so much nicer.As someone who is a bit of a meteorology nerd and former storm chaser, I use nothing but Weather Underground and RadarScope Pro. Weather Underground is free with ads but I pay about $2.99/year to remove them and it's worth it because the app is fantastic and I love using the dark mode and dark radar backgrounds. When I want to dive deep into the radar and look for tornado vortex signatures and hail cores I'll use RadarScope with the Pro subscription which is $9.99/yr and gives access to level II radar data (such as super res reflectivity and velocity for TVS and correlation coefficient for debris), longer animation loops, and dual pane display mode which is handy for spotting rotation. I've thought about buying the new tier 2 pro subscription which has some pretty high end features but at $100/yr, I'm not sure if I really need it.
AccuWeather is a joke by comparison. Weather Underground is much more accurate. Just use that.
I adore just the Weather Channel app. The real-time notifications are really great. It's updated often. It has the option to remove ads. I have no complaints with it.This was my go to weather app. Any suggestions for a replacement?
App store reviews are already getting hit hard.
Yes! This needs to be a PSA.Repeat after me: “if you don’t pay for the product, you ARE the product”
