Can’t turn in alerts.
iClet on 5/23/2018
Recent update breaks ability to select locations to turn on alerts. Fails
Very laggy
Otakuwholockian on 5/22/2018
This app used to be great for getting the weather but now it is extremely slow and irritating.
Loved the old version & hate this one.
Spree56 on 5/22/2018
Why screw up a good thing? The old version was so easy - loved it! Hate this new one.
Mediocre compared to WU Storm
PZeeR on 5/22/2018
This app is so mediocre compared to the WU Storm app that I hardly know where to start. Storm makes very efficient use of screen space, giving access to many options from the home screen via the use of the Current/Hourly/Daily/Video sliding boxes across the bottom of the main home screen that provide a summary of each item from the home screen or much more detail at the touch of the screen on the desired box. One click access to numerous options...genius and efficient! The Weather Channel app, on the other hand, wastes lots of screen space and requires the user to scroll down several page heights to find these same contents...very annoying waste of my time and much less intuitive and easy to use! I'm going back to the Storm app...and then to another if TWC kills it soon as rumored!
What have you done to this app?
Lilcrafter on 5/22/2018
It was working just fine and now the interface has totally changed, the five locations I searched for weather are gone and when I hit the button that says go to App Store, it takes me to a Sam’s club app! What in the world have you done? It was the easiest weather app I could use and now I can’t use it!!! Not happy at all with changes.
Forced to changed
raven2004 on 5/22/2018
The new app update for the Weather Channel is pure garbage it’s very clear that the latest update put ads as the first priority, and weather information on the back burner. The navigation appears to be built for an iPhone, not an iPad. There is no need to create apps for the iPad that have this much scrolling , I’ve had the weather Channel app on my iPad for years, it’s time to look elsewhere.
Irritated 2.2 on 5/22/2018
The predictive percentage for Watson is a -2!
Terrible Compared to Old App
Bjeans on 5/22/2018
On an iPad, scrolling is terribly jerky, too many ads and non-stop videos, ad at bottom covering content. Finding a way to contact support was an adventure. A huge sell-out to get ad $$. I so miss the old classic version - it was perfect. ETA: paid $3.99 for ad-free and it works better. NOTE: the text on the page for weather alerts is very light with a smaller font so much harder to read than in the old app.
ronpolack on 5/22/2018
No thanks I’ll get another app someplace
Used to be good
TexasTommie on 5/22/2018
I am sorry the old app went away, I liked the week laid out horizontally, easier to quickly see, like on TV. So sad.
Upgrade fir more ads
Sawman 50 on 5/22/2018
It’s ok to make money I’m fine with it cause I wouldn’t pay for a weather app. However, when you use in upgrade for an excuse to add more ads and the complicate the proceed to fawn more bells and whistles this is where it fails. The old app was simple to the point..temperature, weather , forecast and satellite maps. Easy to find simple to use. This is what most everyone needs. Now you have to trip around to find the info that was at my fingertips before. I’m off to try other apps.
PaulLund on 5/22/2018
It is really a stretch going out with a 15 day forecast when you can’t get the next 48 hours correct.
New App has problems
TFH139 on 5/22/2018
Radar not a good as old App
Feels like temperature
Mmra on 5/22/2018
Bring back the feels like temperature for the iPad version!!!! I use it for frost and freeze predictions for my garden and heat in the summer. Now the iPad version is just a mirror of the iPhone version.
New Weather Channel app doesn’t work
TarHeel Gator on 5/22/2018
I have used the old Weather Channel app for years and it is my “go to” app. Tomorrow is the last day I’ll be able to use it. I downloaded the new one, but it won’t load. I live in the mountains. All it will do is get to a “finding GPS location” page and spin. I took it outside within wifi range and let it hunt. Kept it there for 2 hours. Nothing. So, I’ll have to find another “go to” app.
Storm Tracks?
1a2b3 on 5/22/2018
Not bad, I guess I'm old fashioned even though I've been using iPods, iPads and iPhones from the first touch screen but a few more instructions or suggestions upon opening the screen might not hurt, if someone isn't interested they can move on. What I am still looking for or would like to have added is storm tracks. I don't like using the video or past or future tracks, my internet doesn't always support. I find embedded storm track much more informative. If it turns out they are in the app or if they come in an update, I'll go with 5 stars.
Weather Channel
wxhootchie on 5/22/2018
This version is definitely a “we changed it because we could” one: It crashes too frequently and the daily forcast was changed from a horizontal scroll to a vertical one, which is more difficult for analyzing daily and weekly trends. Wunderground, here I come...
The old one is much better
FVerdi on 5/22/2018
T....M....I!!! There’s much to be said for presentation and readability. Having the current temp, high, low, current conditions right there... that’s the way to do it, tap if you want more, swipe to the next city on your list. Why did you break something that wasn’t broken? I’ll continue with the old app as long as I can. Then I’ll look for something else.
New Version is SLOW
Azqxl1948 on 5/22/2018
App now opens very slowly. Scrolling is also very slow under the new version. I found it disappointing.
Too much info
Belle of Baltimore on 5/22/2018
The new app is chock full of way too much information. I could find everything I wanted in the old app, but have to spend a great deal of time looking for what I want on this very crowded website. Instead of retiring the old app, why not offer it as an alternative to this new one?
CHazWife on 5/22/2018
Absolutely horrible, difficult to navigate and I’m not even going to start about the radar...
garbage app, but i don’t know what to replace it with
00christie on 5/22/2018
this app is total garbage, but i don’t know how else to get my weather. the radar doesn’t load properly. it glitches and force closes constantly. the design is hideous. you can tell the UX is not important to the team that works on this app because there’s barely any competition from other apps in the market.
Videos- make words an option
Walker Granny on 5/22/2018
I have enjoyed this app. And in the past I would’ve given it five stars. I used to enjoy the videos. They have now put words across the center of the videos which is very annoying. Please make this an option.
GGRuthie on 5/22/2018
The previous version was fine but it forced me to download this new version. It has crashed a dozen times in 5 minutes of use. Also, you can’t swipe left and right to get the next weather location to view. Someone should be fired over this crap. Ever heard of testing?????
A Step Backwards
Rlogue on 5/22/2018
I fail to see any area where the new version is an improvement over the previous version???? The new once doesn’t scroll smooth on my IPad PRO, and they took away the travel dates functions which I used a lot. Seems like the made everything smaller, made it less functional and crammed it into one page. What the heck are they thinking???
Alerts keep turning on
rglamondjr on 5/22/2018
I really do like this app, however, every time I turn off the “alerts” they turn themselves back on. Must’ve turned off “alerts” at least a dozen times. This needs to be fixed!
Zip code disappeared
Frustrating Ace Spade on 5/22/2018
Scottsdale AZ has multiple zip codes with temperatures that vary, the new app does not differentiate the different locations! Showing the zip code in the city label is a useful feature that unfortunately was removed in this new update. Pretty dumb idea.
Sillimoose on 5/22/2018
I use my iPad 4 and have forever, but this app will not load but some other alien off shoot that is slower than the second coming and full of ads. I'll look elsewhere for weather info.
The Weather Channel
Mikehawk888 on 5/22/2018
Lousy you made me get rid of the good one for this load of rubbish. For your info it’s gone as well I now use another one. 😳☹️
This is how you kill a useful app!
depechian on 5/21/2018
I would give this -5 stars if possible! I’ve tried using the new upgraded weather channel app and decided to delete it. The previous version was far superior! So I continue using it. Everything you needed to find was quick and easy to find. This new app is convoluted and full of useless information. I hate having to wade through this information just to find the simple things I want which the other version did so easily. Now I am being notified that the version I am using will no longer be usable within a few days. Thanks but I will be leaving your services for another weather app because this one is just terrible! Don’t waste your time downloading this crap!
They are Duplicating This Garbage On The Old Storm App
GrannyDar on 5/21/2018
After buying out Weather Underground, because they couldn't compete, they've spread their incompetency and call it Storm Radar. Storm users are very angry in similar fashion to you guys. Apparently though, the Weather Channel Corp. can't count from 1 to 5 as to their Apps current reviews. So let me help you .... hold up one finger (some of us would like to pick a specific one) and say ONE. That's your majority ratings on both Apps for current software. (Don't let the average of 4.2 fool you because apparently someone else does not know how to add and divide.) Everyone wants to blame the developers but perhaps they were told what to provide or then again perhaps they have no clue how to to create a superior App. Well you're in luck developers, the perfect Weather App was already coded (Storm) and all you had to do was copy and relabel it. Surely you were competent enough to do that. But that's not it ‘you say’. ‘This is about creating a whole new vision.’ Well to that I say, ‘you need to get your glasses checked’. But perhaps the real truth here is the bottom line ‘money’ which requires power and influence. Buy out your competitors and drive them into the ground. Yeah, that sounds about right. The poor customers (suckers) just won't know what's hit them. What choice will they have but to use our cheap, inferior junk App. Well, you’ve got a point there. Us Americans just can't be bothered to put up a good fight ... we've got to check our Facebook page and get our Tweets out. After all we've sent the message it's okay in government why on earth are we going to make a stink about a weather app? It’s all up to us to make the point. We have a vote. Cave or go elsewhere. I have made the App do the wiggle dance and then bid it farewell 👎🏼
Too much unnecessary stuff. I just want the simple weather
WVaCritter on 5/21/2018
Another update: The warning that their good app is about to expire has the words, “Faster, Smarter, and more accurate”. I’m not sure about the “more Accurate” part, but the “faster, Smarter” part is a lie. Plus, I doubt these people read their reviews. Make the stupid, “This Robot Can Run”, video and ones like it should be able to be turned off totally. Few people care for that crap. Just like the Weather Channel on the TV, they’ve forgotten they should be reporting the weather. Update: I just dropped it another star. Again, I’m sick of the crap on the home screen that I CAN NOT turn off. Make it an option if I want to watch a stupid video of some unknown dude fishing someplace that I’m not even close to, or even close to giving a s*** about. It’s almost as bad as their television channel where you can’t really even get the weather any more. I just want a simple, accurate, weather, app. This app now has so much unnecessary stuff loading that it slows everything down. If I want to see radar weather map I’ll tap on the map section, don’t put it on the main home screen and make me have to wait for it to download. And WHY is there weather news and history on the home screen? Leave it to the weather channel to try to put everything on there but the weather forecast. If I want to to see that kind of stuff make it a choice, stop trying to force it on me by sticking it on the home screen. I JUST WANT THE WEATHER FORECAST SO I KNOW HOW TO PLAN MY DAY!
Not compatible
Sincitywild on 5/21/2018
The new version is not compatible with my iPad.
ShortyM3 on 5/21/2018
The new weather app is not user-friendly at all! I prefer the older version and the way I am able to swipe left or right for my saved locations.
Forced to change. Prefer previous version
Yoga al on 5/21/2018
I don’t like how the new version requires you to scroll down several times for the 10 day forecast. The previous version was so simple. Current weather and forecast
I want the old app back
aadd16 on 5/21/2018
I do not like this new app. Please reinstate the old one.
The Update is Terrible
Jofcsi on 5/21/2018
I had 10 locations on it originally, now I'm limited to 5. I could scroll horizontally through them all, now I can't. I don't need all this detail, I want the temperature and a quick report on various locations.
Wasted landscape space, clumsy to switch cities
SDEMAC on 5/21/2018
Weather Channel app used to be shaped to use the full landscape of the iPad, now it’s narrow with wasted space on both sides. Why is the screen space being wasted? And it’s now clumsy to switch cities: former app allowed a quick swipe to the next city in order. Very disappointed.
New weather app
Old timer. on 5/21/2018
The original app is so much easier to use. I do not care for this version at all. I will continue on with the original one
Tjprod on 5/21/2018
What a disaster of an "upgrade". Ap was awful. They want your money and aren't even giving you the quality ap that was already in place. 1 star was being generous....
New changed weather service map is terrible.
g garfield on 5/21/2018
Why are you getting rid of a good weather map like we have been having? I guess someone is paying someone to make these changes so they can get more advertising money. Screw your customers is what you have done. Shame on you ! Garfield
Hate the upgrade
mlynneo on 5/21/2018
I have really liked the Weather Channel up to now. It gave me exactly the info I wanted, without a lot of extra, distracting stuff. The new version is difficult to read and it’s hard to find just the info I want. I sure wish they hadn’t changed it.
Tired of glitching radar and weather forecast being wrong
Cowboy 9690 on 5/21/2018
Have been using this app for years. The radar glitches and jumps so bad now it’s useless. It can be showing an 80% chance of rain for the next day but when you look at hourly it’s only 60% for an hour. Or says there’s only a 20% chance of rain but hourly says 80% for several hours. The ads on the videos have also gotten out of hand. In my profession I need to know exactly what the weather is going to be. Will be deleting this useless app.
Slow to Load
PallCo on 5/21/2018
Very slow to load. You can be done checking your forecast on other weather apps before this one finishes loading.
Pattil63 on 5/21/2018
Wanted to the last day to get it. Will be looking for a different developer. I didn’t have any problems with the old.
Old app being retired is better
Larry F on 5/21/2018
Performance on this app is horrible compared to the app that is being replaced and retiring in 2 days. This app is slow and with that slowness, it’s difficult to navigate. Old app has none of these problems. We want to look at the current and forecasted weather quickly.
Worst version ever!!!
Mama CJ on 5/21/2018
Totally hate the latest version. Can't have a list of cities that I watch & scroll through easily. Can't set the layers I prefer permanently. Have to reset them every time I open app. Takes forever to move from one screen to another. No longer easy to move through the days of the week for forecast info. Change it BACK!!!
Doesn’t use iPad advantages
Youdontwanttohearme on 5/21/2018
This is the same version as my in written for small screen instead of customized for iPad’s larger screen. Why do that?? Also, for those of us who travel and have scattered family, five slots for points of interest to us is not enough! Ten wasn’t enough in the version that is being retired so five falls waaay short.
I use this channel for all my weather.
nanadennis on 5/21/2018
Need an alert for bad weather approaching.
Slower than old version
INSOMNIATIC on 5/21/2018
I guess I shouldn't complain since it is free but the old version was much faster
