Weather apps for IOS

I posted this on a site called Apple Vis, and I’m sure I’ll hear from them, but if you aren’t over there, I’ll post here so it gets some attention. I’m in no rush to switch, just looking around.


Hello folks,

I’m writing today as I’ve thought about this long and hard. I was recommended Weather Radio which I’ve enjoyed. I had written them about some issues which they confirmed via voiceover this year. Sadly, when I wrote through the app to find out about the status of the bug which has to do with reading the alerts and the constant back reading it does, I was informed that the app was removed from the app store.

I got to thinking about what app to use as I liked weather radio and the way it gave alerts. I did try and podcasted about Weather Underground but I agree with the presenter, it doesn’t feel that great, and the alerts are vague. It took me a bit to set up locations, the current, plus two others I have people in.

Then I got to looking at Dark Sky which is a paid app. I’m not opposed for paying for an app, but the developer of this app says Apple. I remember reading on this site from someone from this app that was going to make changes, which were then implemented. I also saw something here called Carrot Weather which I only read here.

What I’d like to do is find something similar to weather radio where I can customize the alerts I get like weather radio did. Weather Underground doesn’t seem to cut it, the alerts they do have are good, and the forecast is nice, but am just looking to see what people are using.

I would greatly appreciate if someone can assist me in this endeavor so I can make the best choice. Thanks for reading!

I’m using an Iphone 11 gotten at the beginning of 2020, latest IOS 14.3 and use voice over exclusively with no braille.
