How could you guys have left out MyRadar? It's the highest rated app in the Weather category...
I bought the paid app and tried it for a month. Couldn't stand it. The gui is clunky at best. There's no humidity in the extended forecast nor future radar. Previous radar is only 2 hours and you can't change the speed. You can't see hurricanes unless you subscribe but you can see the surface of Mars and Star Citizen planets ?????

I don't know why everyone raves about this so much; there's so many better options out there.

You open it up and it just works and shows you the radar, how could that be clunky? The humidity is right there in the details (I'm looking at it). You can change the speed of the radar in the settings, you can see hurricanes for free, its the extended tracker that is part of the premium package and it has global radar.

Where's future radar?

Yes, I see the humidity for current weather but where's humidity for the extended forecast? Is it going to be 70 and nice or 70 and a swamp outside tomorrow?

Only 5 days extended forecast?

Basic but important stuff that most every other weather app has.

Carrot for Android hasn't been updated since April of 2020 and the review average is 3.2. I don't get the #1 ranking here.

These may be things YOU don't like, but overall the app is the highest rated in the weather category, over and above every one of the other ones listed here. It was an oversight to leave it out.

People can say whatever they want about MyRadar but in my part of the USA it's the best most accurate radar available. I've been a weather watcher for over 50 years. Not sure why anyone would pay for it without trying it free first. As far future radar, they all suck and always have. I don't use MyRadar for forecasting as it's not very good. Our son farms so we have to keep up with the weather.

The winner for the most improved weather app is Apple's own 'Weather' app. They bought out Dark Sky and have combined it with their tech and I see a bright star in weather forecasting.

I'm not even sure how AccuWeather even made the list. It is absolutely the worst weather app in existence. It is hilariously behind on current weather (often 3 hours or so). The radar is complete trash. Hell, on more than 10 occasions l, I was looking at the app, while it was POURING outside, and the app says (not kidding) Sunny. No precip expected for at least 4 hours. Seriously, this site just lost credibility with me. Go look at the apps ratings. That'll tell ya that someone was paid to list that crap app. 🙄

I agree with you. Can't believe this was number 1. An app this out of date shouldn't be on any list like this. I would be interested in the reason for this happening.
