    Hi guys, pretty new to iOS here and looking for some suggestions for a good weather app. If anyone is familiar with the Android world, I used Beautiful Widgets over there for weather tied into Weather Underground for the actual weather. Beweather2 sounded similar (changing themes, uses Weather Underground, etc.) but I was about to purchase and read a number of reviews about it having problems updating the weather accurately. Actually saw comments in the reviews recommending Dark Sky but that has some odd reviews too.

    So I'm not really sure what to try. The stock weather app is ok, but not something I'd prefer to use. I'm currently using the free version of Weather Underground (read that the paid version has problems knowing it was paid for between devices, clean reinstalls, etc.)

    No, BeWeather 2 is great. You're reading our beta testing of the app. I love it. I have a custom iconset I created myself. I call it Bama Weather.

    The Weather Network is great. Very accurate temp, and especially the feels like temp.

    I like the widget on BeWeather but unfortunately the feels like data from weather underground is way off and not very accurate. I wish BeWeather had more sources to get weather data from.

    People put beta testing reviews on the App Store version? Sorry if I wasn't clear about where I was reading reviews at The custom icons is one of the big things that drew me to look at BeWeather 2 because that app that I mentioned I used on Android had tons of custom weather icon sets you could download.

    I thought you meant here on the BeWeather thread. I haven't seen reviews in the App Store. Many issues have been fixed. It's working ok for me. There should be another update soon.

    Like most any app, it has a hiccup or 2. But the features are great and the best widget IMO,

    Call me old fashioned by Yahoo! Weather is my choice for weather apps. It's direct and simple while providing more detail than the stock weather app. Also gives severe weather notifications.

    BeWeather should definitely be on your list for weather. It's about as comprehensive as it gets and provides weather info in a clear way that is useful.

    I think I only saw BeWeather2 in the store so I assume I can't get the original anymore? Anyway, based on the recommendations for it here I'm going to go ahead with my original plan and go with it. Those reviews in the App Store just had me second guessing whether I was about to make a weather app mistake...............................

    ok yeah that was cheesy bad but you all laughed

    A couple things on BeWeather 2:
    1. The app (and temp badge) update so often, I believe it's 30 minutes (or an hour but I could be confusing things with how often the watch can update), so it's going to be off at times. You also need to make sure background refresh is on and app is granted access to location. You also don't want to force quit the application.
    2. The weather is pulled from Weather Underground, so if it's off, that's where the source is. I'd be curious to see screenshots of the 50 degree snow forecast though!

    I downloaded Carrott Weather yesterday. Seems fun, but time will tell how well it does for actual weather usefulness. The Apple Watch complications look good, and the art is fun! I think BeWeather does a better job at displaying more info though.

    I use BeWeather and Dark Sky on the phone but use Carrot Premium only for its watch complication. All three apps have watch apps, carrot is the only one that updates accurately and displays it properly with minimal user interaction. However it's iPhone app is sorta goofy looking so I prefer the other two apps for checking weather on my phone. But all 3 are worth the money.

    Another vote for BeWeather2. The customization is second to none on iOS.

    He's working on it. The temp badge info isn't being pushed as it should. I expect the next update to fix it.
