    Hey everybody. There's already a few of these but they're pretty outdated.

    Wondering what weather app you use. I'm looking for something that is either free (sans ads) or pay once. I used Wunderground for a long time but they've moved to a subscription model so I'm looking around before renewing.

    Share screenshots!

    I use Carrot. Just love it, makes me smile every time I use it. They have a very good watch complication too

    What happened with Weather Underground? I still have and use the app--was something changed about its functionality or is it mainly just ads?

    I purchased it and requested a refund almost immediately. Can't explain definitively why I didn't like it.

    Nothing. My subscription expired and I thought I'd check around for something that was a pay once type deal but after browsing for a while I realized WU is the best there is. I renewed this morning.

    It doesn't feel native.

    I'm using it at the moment too. Usually I use BeWeather 2 (I have most of them, heh), but it hasn't been updated for iOS 10.

    I'd say that's a good way of putting it.

    The widget for BeWeather is pretty awesome, best one I have found yet.

    BeWeather looks nice but there's a lot of terrible reviews citing wildly inaccurate temps and inconsistent refreshes. Maybe it'll be better once it's updated for iOS 10.

    It's powered by WeatherUnderground, which is considered to be fairly good as far as data and forecasts go, so hard to say why there would be bad information (short of people selecting various personal weather stations that might not be properly configure or might be having some issues).

    For general-purpose stuff, I use WeatherRadio.

    For more in depth mobile radar access, Radarscope.

    But at home, I'm running GR2Analyst

    Dark Sky. I'll admit to looking at Carrot with morbid fascination.

    I use Storm. I love the alerts for the radar and such. The widget isn't much but overall I like the app the best.

    Carrot has replaced Dark Sky as my favourite weather app.

    What does Carrot use for the backend?

    Your AW doesn't look like this, broken?


    ***EDIT***

    Sorry, just clued in... don't think you use Apple Watch. My bad!

    No, I don't have an AW, just use WU on iOS and OS.

    eWeather HD is still my weather app of choice.

    BeWeather is beautiful garbage. Really regret spending money on that one.
