FAQ: I have an in-app subscription, how can I cancel the subscription?

FAQ: Why do I have to pay a subscription? Shouldn't it be included for free?

A subscription is not required to receive severe weather alerts or track current weather on the map. Future Weather is great for those who wish to see forecasted radar on the timeline. This is new data and this was not available in our app previously. Charging for this feature allows us to keep the app updated, accurate, and ad-free. We will continue to improve Future Weather and make more improvements across the entire app.
