Snow Report & Forecast App Reviews

Great App

Reading over the reviews it seems as usual the SJW Millennials everything for free, despite being the generation of “sit on the couch and do nothing but complain”. I’m happy to pay to support developers who don’t throw in IAP buy gold/gem scams to their products. This app does what is expected. Obviously the forecast comes from the government (NOAA?) and not the app developer so why anyone would accuse the app developer of an inaccurate forecast shows true stupidity. Please keep up the good work and ignore the lazy lunatic leftists. Thank you!

Snow report and forecast

I find this the best !, with excellent customer care! Thanks so very much! Working perfectly. 10-4-18 , THE BEST SNOW APP OUT THERE ! I should know because I live way way up north !! ****** six stars . I'm so glad that this app was bought up and was designed much better!

Lots of info at my fingertips

It took me a little while to get used to using this app, but now that I have I appreciate all of the detailed info I can get. Also I contacted the developer with a question and received a response very quickly. The only negative feedback I have is when using it on my iPad it can only be viewed in portrait orientation. I would love to have a landscape option.

Disappointed not!

I miss the old version NOAA snow app it seemed to have simpler functionality. However now that I have learned how to use this app I’m happy to say I like it. It took some getting used to but it seems to be working well. I have even used it in Montreal where it is essential. Also the developer was extremely responsive to my concerns that impressive all by itself. No refund needed. Thanks

Doesn’t Work

I get no snow information on this app. It is all zeros. Also, if I click on “contact us”, the app crashes. It would be a good app if it worked.

Free version worked, paid version does not.

The free version of the app was very reliable in that the forecast was always available. Since switching to the paid version some time ago I can count on one hand, with fingers to spare, the number of times I have NOT seen the message “Error retrieving weather.” This is sad since it was a really nice application.

Not as good as before

The layout and visuals are not as good as they were before the “upgrade”.

Just use Website

This app really has nothing special for the price. Save your money and just go to Weather.gov in a web browser. All this app does is some location checking and send you the correct weather station. The developer should be ashamed to charge $2.99 for this app. I can’t even use it in landscape mode on my iPad or use the Apple keyboard. Stay away.

New app not so great.

First off it’s really not cool that I paid for the app and poof it quit working. You just updated a new one and are making everyone pay to add it? Other apps just update and don’t charge. Also, the new one is harder to use. I have 2 so called stations near me just a mile or 2 apart yet one says to expect 4” of snow and one says 0”??? Something is not right. Now I paid for an app that quit working and a new one that’s no good. 😓 Edit- I have tested this new app through 2 more snowstorms. It’s still way off in the snow amounts. Also, it continues to report completely different between the two stations just a couple miles apart.

Not useful

I’m searching for ski resorts or even areas like “UTAH” and getting nothing. How does anyone use this for tracking snow forecasts??

Updates

The updates only happen once a day. When snow amounts change more frequently than ONCE a day!! The previous app was 100% better. I could highlight a future day and it would tell me how much snow was predicted up until that future day.

Can’t save locations?

I don’t get it. I have to zoom in on my ski resorts and do the point forecast manually every time? Once you bring up the list near your point, there is no way to actually add them to a list. Also this developer seems to have uploaded the same app under different names. I foolishly bought both of them. I hope this is a bug or I am just using it wrong, because this design makes no sense to me. I loved Snow Watcher, but the developer didn’t add support for ios11 :(

Horrible

Where are the graphics???? Now i only get words.

Not a fan

I so far have not enjoyed the new app, that I had to pay for. The previous free app was much better. The format was easier to follow - and it was actually accurate. This app states we were going to get 3.4” of snow this morning when snow was never in the forecast for us. So what gives? Disappointed that I lost the old app and paid for the new one, and it’s worse. Edit: yet another NON-forecast that said we had 5.1” fall on Monday and it didn’t snow at all. Said we got a dusting the next day. Nothing happened. And I haaaaate the format. The fact that I have to add .17 this hour to .47 the next and then .23 the next.....I just really hate this app.

Great app for graphics and information

This is the only app I’ll need for all my weather updates and information. It’s all right here with graphs and maps not only of my immediate area with the entire country. Good job putting this together!

New app install

Good app. Trying to navigate it to enjoy all features.

Web Designer response is excellent

I had a minor problem and contacted the web developer Will Ellis and he responded and fixed the problem in two hours. Excellent app I use it for working and pleasure.

Scam - removed snow from old app

Why did you remove the snow forecast from your other NOAA Snow app, forcing us to pay for a new app that has the same information the old one did? Why not just update the old app like every other developer / company does? Oh I know why... $$$$.

Snow totals

I thought that this would show snow totals. Instead it shows forecast. I get more from the weather channel App

Nothing special

The app has nothing special or unique that more established apps don't already have. Plus the interface is confusing and difficult to navigate. Try others.

Great app for ski lovers

It is a great app. I love the idea of putting together what really snowed in the past days and the forecast for the next days. This is something that no other app does. My suggestions for future updates would be: - Metric units support - The ability to go directly to my favorite location snow forecast. There is a lot of time wasted waiting for the locations to appear and then waiting for the forecast to update.

Not even close

I’ve been using SnowForcaster for a number of years. Unfortunately the app stopped fetching data. So I found this poorly designed app. First, data for forecasting isn’t even close. We are expected to receive 1-2” of snow. The app says 12-15”. What? Second, no way to access my saved locations unless I add them to favorites again. Third, you took a name of a quality, reliable app and failed.

Ok

Seems okay but it would have been nice to know there was no weather stations close to my areas to provide any actual value.

Can you not get snowfalls stats for your EXACT location?

I added my current location and when I click on that screen, it tells me what the weather forecast is going to be. Not what it was. On the weather station page, you have to choose your closest station and it does not give you information on snowfall in my location but in theirs. Although it is about 10 miles away, they received less snow than I did. Wouldn’t have paid for this app if I didn’t know I couldn’t get my exact location.

A Great Snow Weather APP

A Great Snow Weather APP! The BEST just thankfully keeps on getting better! Bravo!!

Awful

If you are hoping to see a forecast by hour for snow accumulation this app does not provide that. Provides usual text and graphs only track past snowfall- not predicted.

Severely obtuse

I consider myself a weather nerd but this app is extremely slow and very complicated. For some reason you have add a weather station to your favorites before you can see forecasts and other info. Very hard to get a broader forecast and storm totals for a region (large or small).

Bad GUI Design

App always starts on a map screen instead of showing you the information you downloaded this app for to begin with, to see how much snow is going to fall where you live. No information is pushed to your device to alert you to an incoming heavy snowfall. Getting around the app is just confusing and not thought out. No care taken to minimize the clicks needed to take you to the information you’re looking for.

Great app, great developer!

I’ve been using this app for about a month now. It works great, looks great, and has become an invaluable tool. The developer is also very responsive to feedback, and continues to make the app better and better. Great job!

Add a search bar

Add a search bar pinching and zooming is no fun

Very Good App And Great Support

2nd edit - Changed from 2 to 4 stars Developer quickly provided comprehensive information re my problem and question. The app is 4 stars (not perfect) but support is definitely 5 stars. Changed rating from one to two stars. Since my last comment, the developer did fix the problem. Nevertheless, I don't know at this time if the fix is permanent or whether the problem will reoccur. Does not work at all. After repeated tries, over many hours, I get no information.

Overall useful app

I found the app very useful in determining when snow is going to fall and the total accumulation using side by side graphs. I only found it a little confusing trying to find when it was snowing vs raining, but it shouldn't be much of a problem as the temperatures start being consistently lower.
