overall l like this app and Ambient products. I would like to see a smoother map navigation with added features including a satellite overlay. The webcam features is excellent. UV, solar, air quality and other add on features at reasonable prices make their products exceptional.

Hope i do not jinx it, but this weather station is the best one I have ever used and has lasted longer than any other prior brands I have used.

The difference between wundergrounds predicted 83 and the actual 90 is significant. Do not trust the servives, measure reality.

I've used this on my phone with my weather station for a bit, but it's really nice on the tablet. I'd say, even if you don't have a weather station, it has great local data!

New acct setup. Web site works fine. Mobile app login fails "Invalid password." Tried resetting password as well. Just cannot login via the app.

This is a very good app. No matter where you are it will give very accurate readings over all. You can edit addresses as well to your locations, works beautiful Great app.

In at least 1 of 3 times I try to look at the radar map the app freezes and I have to restart it before it actually shows anything. BTW: Why does the 'full screen mode' NOT actually show the map on all of the screen, also known as the full screen? Almost half of the screen is taken up by lots of white space and info that is useless when I want to see the radar screen.

Opens, but only displays a white screen on Samsung S21 Ultra.Want to purchase one of these weather stations, but a bit nervous if app not working on phone.

Pretty basic and sometimes won't connect, but I'm satisfied in general. It's kind of the only option that I'm aware of.

Last update messed up the app. Cannot update data from the station. Station works fine and uploads data to Weather Underground both website and WU dashboard in awnet app. Tapping on "refresh" does nothing. Last update - 6 days ago. Forecast tile weekly part is not formatted correctly to the screen. Uninstalled and reinstalled - didn't help. Cleared the cash - didn't help. Need a lot of work! Fix it!

My system works great! It's nice to be able to tell what's going on at home when I'm away. also if it sensors in the refrigerators and freezers so if one breaks I'll get an alert. I put a leak detector in a couple of places too.

we just love our system. although living in AZ we really don't have "weather" like other parts of the USA, but when we do it's nice to SEE what Ambient Weather has recorded for us!!!!!!

I love my weather station, but the app could use a little work. I like it, but I don't love it, mainly b/c I want to customize it. I would give it 4.5 stars, but not 5.

Do not buy these weather stations. The android app to configure them does not work. It's as useful as a rock on a string now.

I love that I can see more localized rainfall for my rachio sprinkler controller. It sure makes a difference when we get 2 inches at our house but the airport only get 0.02 inches!

Keeps opening to stations not even in my state that I have never purposely looked for. Why does it not always default to my station? Edit: the check permissions did not help at all. Multiple devices

The stations alone are fine. The app is fine. However the communication. beween the two is always an issue. 3 people in my family have these weather stations (WS-2920c)and all 3 of us with different operating systems (Windows/Android/Apple) routinely (monthly) have problems with connecting and or updating our weather info. This has been going on for years with ambient weather. So as long as your willing to routinely troubleshoot and or re-add your weather station device, then your fine.

Great app. New update doesn't allow me to set all my sensors on the dashboard. Would love a widget that displays information on home screen for android devices.

Please add a user link and also make some widgets so I can view channel temps, Rainfall, wind, and the moon phases, basically everything in the dashboard.

New update killed existing function. Update forces you to login to view favorite stations. New UI also pushes 'social' aspects hard. Not something I'm interested in and having to navigate through the map to look at stations I previously had saved is a real dealbreaker. I'm assuming this is a way to scrape and sell information on the users. Disappointing.

after a couple of months after the update it would only go to white screen. It now has been fixed on my Android. I thought it was a good app prior to the upgrade bug, it still is now

I just bought and first time using ambient from lacrosse witch worked great. This is buggy.. Hopefully you guys get it working across all platforms.... maps won't load full screen and switching from page to page with tabs, it stops working and have to force close. Done all them troubleshooting things. Uninstall reinstall, clear this and that.. same. Plus wish could add temperature in notification bar for own station and widgets!! Good luck.

Good App. My wife and I use the Android and IOS version. We live on a farm and have many sensors and it is great to be able to check on things while away from home. I have 2 wish-list items: 1) Smaller tiles. With multiple sensors scrolling is a bit bothersome 2) Ability to add multiple email addresses to the alerts

Good app but desperately needs a dark mode. Update 2022 Finally got a dark mode now we need an accurate forecast. Forecasting is total garbage. I use this app to monitor my own weather station but have to use another app to get the actual forecast. Software seems to be the Achilles heel of ambient.

I had the app before and it was fine, but sometimes buggy. Just downloaded it again (desperate for somewhere else to look besides the weather channel widget on my phone) and I'm actually pretty impressed with what they've done. I get migraines, and my biggest trigger is massive pressure changes (obviously can't control that, but it helps if I know they might be coming). Lo and behold, there's a big chart now!!! I've got an android phone if that makes a difference?

The app works as it should to display the information from my ambient weather station. It really really really needs to have dark mode capability. If you open the app at night in a dark room it is like having a spotlight directly in your eyes. Please update.

Nice app! I like what it displays and the access it gives me to historical data. But the back button is the worst! It navigates you to places you never were and it WON'T EXIT THE APP! So frustrating. Also, I can't arrange the tiles in the order I want, which seems like an obvious miss by the devs and is also a frustration point.

The dad's dream app. Paired with my Osprey weather station, I can see what's going on at home when I'm not there. I have 3 temp sensors in the house and they all work flawlessly.

This was a great app until a couple of weeks ago. Looks like there was an update that broke something. All I get is a blank screen now. Uninstalled. Hopefully it gets fixed someday. Update 2/21: still broken. It was nice while it lasted.

Love the app, although I don't often use it since I typically just glance at the weather station display. However, if I want to go to a specific period of time to look at the weather history, it's all available on the app for whatever date range I select, which is significantly easier than to try to hunt through the log file on the weather station display. The app has lots of ways to display the available information, from tables to graphs, for those who love data.

I have a weather station and 4 remote temperature/humidity sensors. I have the sensors in our greenhouses so I can make sure the heat is working. This setup is great - EXCEPT the Android app just goes to a white screen. Doesn't work at all with my Pixel 5. I'm seriously considering switching to an iphone because this is a critical situation. I emailed the developers several weeks ago and have gotten no response.

Useless!! Blank White Screen. Was going to buy Ambient Weather WS-50-F007PF WiFi on Amazon, and decided to check the app out first. Sure enough just like others, all there is is a blank white screen. Glad I didn't spend the money to buy their product.

Updates clearing login cache? I don't memorize/write down my login info, so it's a bit frustrating. I dumped the app for a while but will probably reinstall so I can se the temps in my house: will have to figure out how to get my login credentials...

Was ok when it worked but my outdoor weather station bit the dust after 5 years so I was limited to my indoor information. That was fine as I could still get high/low temps, barometer & humidity info along with notifications that I had set up. Then, this past summer, we disconnected the little networking device while we did some home renovations & when it was reconnected, my login was no longer valid. The email I had used to register was discontinued so I am unable to reactivate it. Too bad.

I have updated twice within about a month. First time, like others said, I had an issue logging back in. This time, all I get is a blank screen when opening the app. We have had the weather station for about 2-1/2 years, this has been our only problem. Update....Apparently there was an update to fix some bugs. That update didn't fix the bug for Samsung S20 because all I get is still just a blank screen when I try to view the app.

App works great, only downfall is it doesn't have a widget option that can be customized to show what information you want shown on the widget. Just sucks having to go into the app everytime you want to check your personal weather station.

Seems to be working great again. Responsive dev! Dev says app was updated. I uninstalled and reinstalled twice. Less function now than before. Something is busted with this app. Happy to help the dev with more info as needed, but pretty simple set up here. I'm mostly sure the iasue is the app. Too bad, as the station itself is tops... The app makes it a brick.

Revised review to 5 stars, as the newer versions are much improved. There is a lot to like about this app. The UI is very clean and easy to use. It is necessary to use this app to set up or customize your Ambient Weather site.

Ditto of the new problem since the update. It would not allow me to login saying that I never verified my email. I created a new account but the app will not connect to our station as the MAC address belongs to a different account. Pretty disappointed as prior to this update, we really enjoyed the app to monitor conditions when we are away from the farm.

This app was good until your update now it won't open. Recommend removing the last update immediately. Then when you get it fixed relaunch it. I will not recommend a product with faulty apps to friends and family.

I'll join the chorus of complaints about the March 2021 update. Loved the app before and had a couple of years of good usage. Now have problems getting my own station, views sometimes in can't be reached and can't exit the application. Didn't you guys test this? Latest android on pixel2. After December 16 update app goes to a white screen and stops. No information. At least now you can exit app. Sorry to see what was a good tool become worthless.

I reviewed this earlier today. I hadn't logged on since it was updated. Seems I was logged out, didn't notice (??!!?) And I gave the app 3 stars and said it sucks. While it is a bit "busy" it's totally functional in the new version. Sorry coders.

Locks up while using at times. Need to be able view rain totals on the map and not just hourly rate. Update 12/8/21: App at times will not properly display highs and lows when clicking on the + sign on a tile. Can no longer remove the map from the tiles. Buggy overall. I have the station set to upload every minute, yet the app sometimes only updates at a rate of 2-3 minutes. Bugs galore.

This fit and function of this app does not appear to have even reached 'beta' release status. It really does appear to be a very early 'alpha' version. If you don't expect much from this app then you won't be disappointed. I do look forward to what a refined and polished version of this app will look like when it finally arrives.

I agree that this app took awhile to get up and running. Not too user friendly. After an hour of 'this and that' and reloading, passwords etc, I had it up and running on my phone and lap top. After all was done, the results were as promised. Complete weather info from my unit to my devices. Pretty impressive.. That being said, Ambient Weather needs to work on making the app. 1-2-3 instead of 'what?'

The newest version of this app does not reliably connect to the console, rendering it absolutely useless. (It last connected 6 days ago.) Also, the new social media page is very annoying for those of us who don't use social media. For those who do use social media, why would anyone want to post their local weather?

Ver 3.2 and 3.3 April 13 & Jul 15 2021 are terrible. It used to be good but now you have to wait while it starts with the map instead of just going to the dashboard. Thete used to be an option to start with the Dashboard but that option no longer exists! It really stinks now.

Developers, focus on core functionality. We don't need more social. Tapping the graph button hasn't worked correctly for months! Buyer beware if you are thinking of buying one of these weather stations before they fix the basic app functionality.

I can't believe, that supposedly smart people can make a weather station that seems to be well made... can make such a crummy app to access the data... I don't care if it's on FB or not... I can't pull up my weather station... it keeps giving me stations that are out of my area that I could care less about!!!

Aug 2021 update.... STILL BUGGY. Ambient seems to be committed to this social media functionality that few no one wants while letting the core functionality fail. Very buggy since last update to include some unneeded social BS. It was decent and stable prior. Now crashes randomly. Button to see graphs takes you to the map view instead! Returning to dashboard crashes. Very frustrating.

I enjoy using the app and I just found out that I can download data from the app and don't have to use the card to physically move data to my computer. I am not a real weather geek but I'm interested in much of the information the app and WS-2000 provide. This was a gift from my wife and she really scored with this one!

NEXT UPDATE: v2.6 was very nice after several revisions. Unfortunately, v3.x is now totally non-functional, as summarized by several current reviews. Subordinate fonts too small to read, 20 days historical data failed to load in 20 minutes, can't kill app with back button. If anyone can please point me to an official .apk of v2.6 without using a non-secure mirror site, please advise.

Use to be great!?! Since last update doesn't load graphs, which I really miss. Also the other stations on the map use to show temps, wind, etc. Now you have to select them to see data. As far as my own station being able to see what is currently going on I love it, but I really miss losing the history...

Can't get any weather station except Catawba 62, Rock Hill. Doesn't matter what location I search or which weather station I select. This just started in the past few days. I tried uninstalling and re-installing. Very frustrating! It used to work fine everywhere we traveled.

I'm surprisingly pleased with this app. Many reviews bash it, but it takes a while to get used to the way it works. Setting up favorites on your laptop makes it easy. I love that I can see every station anywhere in the US. Only issue is it's slow

What in the world happened to this previously great app? Since the last major update the graphs won't load if you press the graph button, and when they ever do the time scale is either just month/day or if it shows time the scale is wrong. I can't be the only one experiencing this. Makes my weather station nearly useless now. Please fix!

Keeps sending me to stations that are 30 miles away or more. I've force stopped and deleted storage/cache and it's still doing it. It finds my location, I tap on a station, it shows it, I tap on view dashboard, it shows me some station far away instead. And keeps sending me to that far away station no matter what station I tap on. I was thinking of buying a new ambient station but if this is the experience I should expect, maybe I'll look elsewhere.

Older versions worked OK, but new version installed on a new phone with Android 10 is unusable. Selecting to view the dashboard of a station opens a totally different station

This app USE to work great. I've deleted and re-downloaded it and it takes me to the same weather station states away at some HOA in Wichita There is a weather station in my backyard and everytime I click on it, it will load but before I can scan all the info, it changes and when I scroll back up, low and behold I'm back in Witchita....smh

Works for good for my own station and last stations viewed. But when I try to load dashboard for a different station, the dashboard I last viewed loads instead. So all I can see is temp for other stations. I have uninstalled and reinstalled app, but still will not load dashboard for any other stations.

Used this app a long time &was easy to use to get info for stations near where I live. Now Can't find the stations near my location.. Keeps defaulting to area 40 miles away. Older versions worked perfect. Why do developers always tinker with apps that work fine and ruin them?

Very annoying sliding time selection pops in graph view every time the screen is touched. I have not found a way to get rid of it for good. 12-11-20. Developer says it was removed in latest version but it's still there. Update. Removed one star after using the app for 3 months. App will not default to your personal station. It goes to some one else's station. Charts in app quit loading. Touching the chart icon takes the app to the map section. Once another station has loaded, it's over.

Horrible app full of glitches. The app get stuck in loading loops, randomly crashes, or becomes unresponsive every other use. Sensors that are renamed often reset to their default name. The graph button below the tile takes you to a map instead of graphs.

Works perfectly for me--not found any bugs or glitches with the current capabilities/features (and I'm a former software developer so pretty critical). Not sure why all the bad reviews. My only complaint is sometimes the "charts and graphs" can be quite slow to load. Could there be some improvements and new capabilities? Yes, but it serves my needs for now.

It is great to have data truly personal to your own location. I appreciate being able view other stations and make them a favorite, but that is clunky in accessing the favorites and then viewing. A multi view mode would be great to have multiple stations selected and view them side by side. The app regularly states the graphs aren't available, that is annoying. This app needs dark theme support and a Widget badly to alow me to see my station data without having to open the app.

So much potential here. Ever since Dark Sky was acquired by Apple I've struggled to find a decent weather app (seriously, I've tried probably 20 apps). This app lacks a status bar notification (temp at your location), a widget, and fewer taps/buttons to get to the map and forecast. Study the looks of Dark Sky if you need some inspiration, especially the rain animations. Your map with all the weather station data is fantastic. Please don't change that. I'll gladly be a beta tester.

It's a very nice app. I've used it for over 2 years with my personal weather station. I bet I've recommended both the PWS and app to over a half a dozen people who are also pleased. It updates every few minutes. It's great to look at trends, set time periods to review, etc. And see what's happening in your own backyard I would like to zero total rainfall each year, is there a way? Also I'd like to reorder the tiles on the app (Android) and I cannot seem to do so. Is this possible? Thanks

Lost the connection so I can't see it on my phone or computer anymore. The device is connected to the internet and has strong connections.

We've been unable to find the reading for total Solar Radiation for a given day in W/m²h. We are able to see W/m² as an instantaneous reading, but would be much more useful if we were able to determine the area under the curve. We need to be able to say for eg. that last week Sunday 6.25W/m²h of Solar Radiation was produced by the sun, in the same way we can say how much rain fell on a particular day. Thanks very much for considering.

These people created a great app and stand behind it. I incorrectly called them out for misspelling "Wind" in a title block. The cool part is, they give you the option of changing the words in the titles. I had inadvertently added a letter causing the misspelling of a word in the title. It's actually a nice feature.

This app has worked reliably since I started with my own personal weather station in 2018. In 2020 the app and data infrastructure changed (I previously used the term "broke" which was as Ed mentioned caused by traffic). I still find the current user interface to be far less useful/reliable than before. I often ask "what is it doing now?" as now a sun/moon display irrevocably replaced my wind widget and resists resetting. The changes are simply less of a consistently rewarding experience.

It is still helpful but not as good as previously. It now gives forecast information but it no longer shows the indoor information from the console.

Love this app. It gives me direct access to my personal weather station. If i could make one suggestion, it would be awesome if i could add the temperature to my status bar on my phone (or a widget). That way I can always check the temp at my weather station, without even having to open the app.

Not wanting to post my data for public consumption, this app provides my dashboard needs. For the past two years, I've used 8 temp sensors to monitor my ducted mini-split. With 24 hour graphs, it would be nice to add a little more granularity maybe 2, 6, 12 hour options ? This app has really improved usability of the hardware.

Hardware is good, app and database are trash. If you open the app, then reopen hours later, graphs wont update without killing app. Database server goes down, no history or graphs work anymore. Charts have ugly smoothing. Overall, just a lousy interface for a good weather station. Makes me wish I'd made my own server to log weather data, no getting it back from ambient.

The app works "ok". There is no means of selecting or deleting what it displays and it displays a lot. There are no widgets either. This is a time when ALL apps have widgets. This app does not have any. Furthermore, if for any reason whatsoever that you lose internet, the Display will stop sending data to the Ambiant WX permanently. This literally make the Ambiant WX app useless because we ALL lose internet from time to time as a result of various reasons.

(Was 3 stars, now 5 stars - the site appears to be fixed, and all missing data is present.) This app / website is a good all-in-one location for current and historical weather data. I haven't found many other Android one-stop shops for this, besides WUnderground. WUnderground is better at the charts and graphs aspect, but Ambient gives a little more detail (indoor sensors / wind chill) and allows you to download the data for your own review. --- This app basically sends you to the dashboard of Ambient Weather. The site itself does a good job with visualizations, plotting data, and downloading data as a csv file. (The last of which is something I've not found anywhere else.) The meh rating is because the site itself does not seem to accept data very well. There are multiple time stamps with no data, even though other sites I send data on a more frequent basis to are just fine. Too bad... This would be a good all-in-one app otherwise.

Well I think the rating says it all. To me anything below 4 stars developer should look at those reviews similar to the way a restaurant would use Yelp. Use those critical reviews to create a better app. The ones I'm seeing that I agree with say that the interface is clumsy and it's hard to find the data that you want. The dashboard should be condensed so all current info is displayed like the indoor monitor. That way a click could bring up the all stored details by day week month or year.

A good app. Works well with my station and gives me all the info I need. It would be really nice to have a feature added that allows you to add data to your notification bar and that data is then updated automatically without opening the app. Much like the Weather Underground app used too. I like to be able to just look at my phone and see what the temperature is without having to open the app. WU still has the feature, but it doesn't update anymore. You have to open the app to get the notification bar to change.

like the app. Its alexa functionality could be improved. It would be nice to ask for the report on a specific sensor rather than to hear every one. Also when it goes through humidity it would be nice if it went by what the sensor was renamed to. ie. Alexa, whats the temperature in the pool. My honeywell thermostat all I say is whats the temperature in the livingroom and she tells me. I don't have to say ask honeywell what's the temperature in the livingroom.

Nor really an "app," just a web site wrapper that conveys the same information. The individual "panels" are far too large for mobile,, and *everything* is displayed which results in too much scrolling. The app needs the ability to format the displays (perhaps a 'full" and ""compact" option, and the option to toggle with a tap), to determine which ones are shown or hidden, and in what order. (Example: I'd like to have the summary be first.) Widgets and dark mode are also needed.

This is a good app, but it needs to make a few more options. Graphs need to be on a separate page, tedious scrolling could be avoided. Graphs need to be "zoomable". Option to export to xlsx or pdf would be great. Any options at all would be appreciated.

I wonder if there is a way to have there be a temperature notification in the status bar. It was a breeze setting up with the other app. I know you can do the temperature notification through Wunderground, however, it would be nice through this app which is from the station itself.
