Thanks! Worked. Got rid of the ads on the iOS app! I like the ability to see the map with personal weather stations and it has a 10-day forecast which is what kept me tied to the weather.com app.

Can someone tell me why this is so much better than weather.com or some other weather website? I'm sure it is, but I have never used it before. What can "it" do that other websites can't do?

Thanks!
You have access to a huge number of weather stations operated by folks as a hobby. Most of them are very accurate and update at a high rate. I have one less than 1/4 mile from my house.

Their web site has some other nice stuff like wundermap which overlays weather radar on Google maps with a bunch of controls.

Decent Android and iOS apps.

This gets you ad free.

Just my opinion:

No annoying video that plays as soon as the page loads.

Cleaner layout.

Rapid Fire Updates - info like temp and wind update every few seconds.

Most information available on the main page without clicking different tabs or links.


I found it extremely helpful when my parents called trying to find out the best place to find current weather for their home town (they are NOT internet friendly).

They were able to pull up the town, even found a weather station actually close to where they grew up! They also quickly found an available webcam, and the almanac and historical data for the area. I usually have to literally walk them through every step on a web page, but once they pulled up the city they were good to go.

I watch TWC daily, but still find it funny that the website doesn't incorporate half of the technology they use on their broadcasts.

TU and rep to OP. Never knew there was a membership or way of removing ads...just figured it was a free site.

Weather.com is slap full of ads, they keep popup blockers in business.
If I need to test ad and pop up blockers I go to Weather.com. Talk about a site infested with advertising. It is more ads than useful info.

As far as I know, accuweather.com is better and accurate than weather.com. I totally forgot I signed up for this service back in 9/1/12 and this is my second time using it so I cannot give you the comparison.

Even at free, I don't want to support Bill Ayers & Co. I will continue to use weather.com for my forecasts.

The only thing I knew about Weather Underground was the feed on my XBMC. I've noticed the temps seem a few degrees different than what other sources report.

Anyway now I know they have a real service Smilie

You know that The Weather Channel bought out wunderground last year right? So by using weather.com and seeing the ads you are helping to pay Bill's salary, if he's still employed there.
