My city (yippee!!) (Be aware, your town might not be available....might email first to see)
Tabs at bottom
Dual, looping, animated radar view (mini/full landscape)
Would like to see:
Zip code search and location aware searches listing available weather stations
Wind speed, direction on new tab
Sticky radar views (remember zoom/position)(don't think it does)

Great radar, great trend charts, and great updates! Love the embeded time, but would love to be able to slow down the speed of the animations so I could really see approx what time foul weather will hit. I paid $14.95 months ago and still think it was money VERY well spent. In my line of work, I need to know the weather in the field minute by minute. This "mobile radar" is exactly what I need.
Nice App. Glad I bought it.

Although this is one of a few apps that will crash my iPhone. Not every time but every so often as soon as I launch it my iPhone reboots. Other than that it's a very nice app.
Two additions, however, would make it truly great. The first would be to add the little wind direction indicator like Weatherbug has. It's just really cool. The second would be to have the bottom (Forecast, Trend and Radar as well as the actual radar screen) portion of the app automatically expand up to the bottom of the cities in the Current Conditions space. I only have 2 cities set and with My Weather that's 3. There's wasted space between that and the Forecast, Trend and Radar buttons. Would be nice to be able to use that extra space for the radar while in Portrait mode.
Oh and one more request. I'd really like the Forecast to be more complete. Something like what the National Weather service has. It would be perfect if the Forecast for a particular day was tappable so that when you tapped it a more complete forecast for that day would open up.
Still a great app and glad I bought it.
MyWeather Saves iPhone
By: kpkmajk - Feb 24, 2009
If it weren't for MyWeather Mobile, I would have ditched my iPhone a long time ago! I work as a wildlife conservationist and when I'm out in the field barely holding the Edge network, having timely, accurate radar, wind and temp data is no joke - in fact, sometimes a matter of life and death - if not for me, for some of the wildlife I care for. I'll keep the iPhone but as far as I'm concerned, this app saved Steve's job. ;-)
Could be my fav information app on the AppStore
By: fluidic - Jul 29, 2008
OK first, a little expense before I purchased it. Now that I have it, well worth the price. I ride a motorcycle everyday so having the weather map everywhere is great.
After using it, I was a little miffed that I the radar screen was so small. Then I read some reviews about turning the iphone landscape...holy cow now the map is perfect. It shows over the whole screen.
Just execution of iphone hardware and internet data.
By: RGJM - Feb 11, 2009
I am very happy with this app. MyWeather support let me know that the app made the Top 100 Paid Applications on the App Store for 2008. It is the only paid weather app that made the list. Bravo! Their support also let me know there is major upgrades with the upcoming new release, percent of precipitation and allow users to create a custom location based on the current position and much more ...
By: SchecterFennec - Jul 28, 2008
First off, I'd like to say that I convinced myself to buy this app because of a rarely-seen trend among the reviews: The developer actually listens to his or her feedback and likes to make the people who paid for the app happy. I wish there was more of that here.
I'll start at the main screen, which is divided horizontally into two sections. On the top, we have the current conditions for all of the locations you've fed into the app. It found everything I was looking for in the US, but appears to not support international locations. That's a shame, but it's not crucial for me. It's minimalist yet informative, with a nice little icon and a temperature next to each place. On the bottom of the screen, we have more detailed information for the location that's highlighted up top. This section is broken into three tabs: Forecast, Trend, and Radar.
The Forecast tab is a quick overview of upcoming weather. It displays three days at a time, and you can swipe for up to seven days of data. At the moment, each day has a high/low temp, a bit of text describing the general outlook of the day ("Light Rain", "Scattered Showers", etc.), and an icon that illustrates the text at a glance. I would like for there to be more detailed data in the forecasts, which could be made possible by dividing the screen so that there is less unneeded space for the locations list and more space for detailed data.
The Trend tab is a unique and nice feature of this app. It displays graphs of temperature, conditions, precipitation, and wind predictions across 12 hours. You simply drag a graph offscreen to get to the next one. I have two complaints here. First, the precipitation graph only diplays inches of rain, with percent chance nowhere to be found (throughout the entire app, actually). That's one of my most crucial pieces of data when planning a day. Second, it looks like the graphs have a data point on each hour, but you can only select and view points for every other hour. That's kind of a drag when you have a peak between two even-numbered hours.
Last up is the Radar tab. The biggest selling point of this app for me was the animated radar, and it works wonderfully. There's a little thumbnail-sized map in the normal view that loads fairly quickly (you can drag and zoom in it, too). Then you can turn the phone on its side for a great full-screen map. Gripes here: I wish it would remember the last viewed location (or, at the very least, last zoom level) for when you load it up again. Also, moving around the map can be sluggish when it's trying to load and animate at the same time, even over WiFi. This app uses Microsoft Virtual Earth instead of Google Maps, but I don't know if that has anything to do with the response issues.
To conclude, this is a nice app. The color scheme is stylish and easy on the eyes. Navigating is simple. I wish I could give ratings by the half-star, as this earns four and a half in my mind. Almost perfect, but with little things that could be touched up. Worth $15? Depends on the person, I suppose. I don't regret my purchase. And hey, at least I know that the developer is probably listening to me. I'd recommend it.
The Weather App For iPhone
By: Justin Williams - Jan 23, 2009
This app is far superior to anything else offered in AppStore presently. What I like about it that it gives a Dashboard-esque look to the current weather much in the way of the Weather app that ships with the phone, but with much more data. My only requests for future versions is a higher resolution radar map to eliminate the blurriness in horizontal mode and the ability to add cities to my listing by zip code. Typing "Newburgh" into the current version gives me Newburgh, NY instead of Newburgh, IN and I can't find a way around that.
By: S D Brown - Jul 26, 2008
I really like this application. It takes a little longer to load than the Apple Weather app but if you want to know when to expect rain, instead of just that it could rain, then this is the place to come! You want to know what direction the rain will come from, this app has it. You want to see a weather map of the complete US instead of just a small region? This app has it! You want responsiveness from support - this company does it. Bring you suggestions to the table because they are interested. In short, if you can afford the price and like weather details then this is the place to be.
Great weather app for the iPhone
By: Macallen - Jul 25, 2008
Don't be put off by the price. I waited until the most recent version, then dove in. The radar display is very good, is animated, and gave me good information on the location of Dolly's rain bands while I was on the go during the storm. Also, there is much more forecast information available than is provided by the built in weather app. The developers are responsive to user input and have improved the product rapidly, a trend which will probably continue. For example, adding opacity to the radar layer is already on the to-do list.
I am a weather geek, and love this app.
seems worth it
By: cunningjames - Dec 29, 2008
This app is without peer. I balked at paying $10, but for something I'll use multiple times a day it seemed worth it to splurge---especially since all of the other weather apps are (even now) pretty bad. I haven't been disappointed. MyWeather Mobile is beautiful, responsive, easy to use. I especially like how easy it is to switch between favorites; the trend graphs are useful, too. Nice all around.
As to concerns raised by others: I can't speak for how accurate MyWeather's data is generally, but it seems reasonable to me (so far) and pretty copacetic with the Weather Channel.
Great app AND now an amazing app with the update.
By: CaliEMT - Jul 23, 2008
This app is 100% awesome. Before the 1.2 upgrade it was still a pretty good app but it had some to be desired. Now it has everything I have wanted in a weather program. This little baby has a ton of cities in it. I'm in a small city near Seattle and due to the weather out here the temp in Seattle is different than where I live. This little program has my town and every town I tried to input (I tried a ton because its fun to test it). It now has a looping radar animation which is wonderful. I love how it can use your location to know the weather where you are. If you travel a lot you can easily find out the weather of where you are at without inputting a new favorite city. The program is also very slick and extremely easy to use. The only thing that would make this program better is if it allowed me to actually control the weather! Also the customer support MYWeather offers is outstanding. I emailed customer support with a question/concern and the next business day I had a reply. This was not an automated reply or a reply from someone who didn't care. I had a real person reply to me with all of the information I required. 5 star vote from me, I recommend it to anybody who loves weather or just wants to know an accurate forecast.
Over the top Weather!
By: TTU Alumni - Dec 28, 2008
Simply, I think this app. is excellant. It gives you forecast, Trends, and a radar in motion! Tilt for a full wide angle view! The program had ever area I was interested in including some tiny towns! In current conditions it lists: Wind Chill, Dew Point, Humidity, Precip. Today, Wind and Pressure along with Temp. and a visual cloud, snow or whatever. I use it constantly and have been totally pleased! I would buy it again!
Nice app, radar loops have now been implemented.
By: Michael Caswell - Jul 22, 2008
UPDATE 7/22/08: As promised, the missing radar loops feature is now in place. If weather radar on-the-go is important to you, this is definitely the app to have on your iPhone!
The Trend feature is great, showing detailed forecast information for the next 12 hours or so. One thing that I'd like to see is, on the Forecast tab, the ability to tap on each day to get a more detailed forecast. Not as detailed as the Trend tab, of course, but maybe just "60% chance of rain, 90% humidity, winds 9mph SW" or something along those lines.
MyWeather Mobile is already a very useful app, and I look forward to future developments!
UPDATE: This evening I received an email from the developer of this app, informing me that the animated radar map feature is being implemented, and that it should be out by the end of this month (there just wasn't enough time to get it in this initial release). I appreciate him taking the initiative to figure out how to contact me (I hadn't emailed him... he just saw my comments here). Changed my rating to 4 stars.
Also, to the reviewer who is concerned about the tiny radar display, simply turn the phone on its side to see a beautiful full-screen radar map.
Hmmmm... I may have just wasted $15. I bought this app specifically for radar loops, and in the description, it specifically mentions "radar loops in stunning HD-quality". Unfortunately, I am only seeing static radar maps, with no apparent way to show an animated loop. So, beware if this feature is important to you.
MyWeather is Better Than Your Weather
By: rtfagan - Jul 18, 2008
The features and attention to detail contained within this application is far superior to those contained within any of the other weather applications currently available for the iPhone/iPod Touch. Some people may be initially hesitant due to the somewhat higher price of this application, but if you are a weather nut or just want to have all of the weather information you desire in a convenient, intuitive, and "sexy" format, then this is the application you need to put in your palm! I know that the designer who worked on the layout of the application has got to be one of the best in the industry, because this is the best looking all around application for the Apple device.
Best Weather App Available
By: Luv Ringtones - Jul 17, 2008
MyWeather beats the competition hands down. Weather Bug is free because it have very little to offer and wastes space with large icons, only has three locations, and promises the world in the future with a premium application but no mention of price.
MyWeather has great support, beautiful graphics and everything is available on one screen with one touch. The trends are a great feature! This program is intuitive, works the way I work, and you can add dozens of locations. I added 24 without a problem.
Sure it's missing state names and the radar echo isn't yet active...they're coming very soon. I absolutely love the landscape radar map...you can see the whole country in one screen.
This app is worth the price of a couple lattes. We complain about app prices but spend far more on junk. This one time payment will provide great benefits everyday. I highly recommend it.
Full Featured Weather App
By: KayakDunes - Jul 14, 2008
The iPod Touch comes with a very basic little weather app, but this application takes weather to a higher level.
You can set multiple locations, and switch between them at a touch. I was able to set my location, Chicago/O'Hare, and the cities where my family live. It has Forecast, Trend, and Radar tabs across the bottom half of the screen. The forecast tab gives you a 6-day forecast you can scroll through. Trend shows 12-hour trends including temperature and sky conditions and my favorite, wind speed and direction that you can check by tapping at 2-hour intervals. The radar view is very cool, and uses the iPod Touch's capabilities by going to full screen view when you turn it horizontal.
The application looks really nice, and the company web site has a thorough explanation of what the app will do. I like it a lot, the wind speed and direction and other trend graphs are cool features. It's worth the money to me for the detailed information.
This is a great application for weather geeks, people who need to know the weather conditions (like boaters), or anyone who cares about the weather. Now all I need is wireless internet everywhere I go.
By: Doc. Len - Jul 13, 2008
I am very happy that I bought this app.
1.The graphics are rich and beautiful and the weather information comes up very fast.
2.The GPS function works great -- it automatically found where I was and displayed that weather information first, including showing radar for my area in the mini screen.
3. I can see the weather information displayed on the entire large screen just by turning my phone sideways.
4. I can see the whole country if I want and double-tap on other locations on the map that interest me and zoom in. It is very responsive.
5.The trend graphs are very nicely done, I can see what future weather is coming with just a glance and the handsome icon tells me the rest with just a glance.
Excellent design, very fast and I can customize it for what interests me. Very pleased, well worth the money.
By: laorosa - Nov 24, 2008
So i'm looking out the window right now and it is raining pretty hard. the App says it is raining in the Forecast section, which is correct. But in the Trend section under Percipitation it says ZERO Percipitation All day....!!??
Please update this because if i relied upon this App when i have Real plans, it could really be a let down....
Otherwise this is a great Weather App
A functional program with a clean interface
By: Brad Larson - Jul 13, 2008
This application takes on the unenviable task of competing with one of Apple's built-in programs and does a very good job. The user interface is elegant and presents information in an easy-to-read fashion. Even without the soon-to-come radar loops, the radar itself works very well, using pinch zooming and location detection to present information in a far better fashion than the other weather applications I've tried. Personally, I consider it well worth the money.
