This is a accurate and it looks great
Latest version 8.13 very buggy
Warren Martin on 6/22/2017
The recent update to version 8.13 took what was the go to app for weather and made it awful. I am about to take it off my iphone. Constant pausing, crashing, not updating, you name it , it is all not working like it used to.
Not equal on phone vs pad
SKirtonBear2 on 6/22/2017
Like the local info by zipcode and severe weather warnings, but the two apps are very different. Keep the iPhone app: it's all there. Outdoors: GoRun Forecast, and Ski are also really helpful on the iPhone app, but are not even found on the iPad app. That's my reason for using it: I want to plan my runs out of the rain! UPDATE: now this doesn't work anymore. It says that the "weather is great for running all day today, so no excuses" then as the temperatures climb the evaluation bounces up and down: 6 at 98 degrees then a 7 at 104 degrees (better at 104?!) then a 4 at 105 with no changes in precipitation nor wind. This was once a great app, now the info isn't trustworthy. Even the widget displays incorrect info. They added a new way to watch the videos, but the ads are very long and intrusive. Plus, they don't always work. Customer support and feedback are non-existent. Just try; you'll just get the same page over and over again. No place to get help nor to report an issue. Ready to drop this to one star and delete! IPad app- there's only the Health list: allergy & Flu reports. Not needed nor helpful. The videos are repeats from their channel and are best on the iPhone. I'm not even bothering to open the app on my iPad. Deleted it.

Weather channel
Bonsai 52 on 6/22/2017
Since last update app shuts off on its own takes 3 times to come on without freezing up very poor update
Easy to Read
weather4ky on 6/22/2017
Easy to read and follow along

If you think this new version of the weather channel you are greatly mistaken. I find the new version to be very hard to extract the information your looking for in a timely matter. You had an App that didn't need updating as far as I'm concerned. Give me back the old version ASAP. I doubt if anyone from the weather channel app will ever read this, but one could only hope that you do. I still feel the same way about the new version of this App.
Good App
Starcat301 on 6/22/2017
Provides reasonable forecast for my specific area.
Great App
Mik6589 on 6/22/2017
Does what you want it to do, give you the weather, and reliable forecasts.
No problems!
Cari Gulley on 6/22/2017
I've never experienced a bug or location issue and the forecast is accurate.
And the freezing app continues...
Lorigirlie on 6/22/2017
Had this app for years and loved it. (I am such a fan of the weather channel, I received a cool weather channel hat!) But since the last update I constantly get a frozen screen when I open the app. Living in Louisiana, I really need a reliable radar, especially with TS Cindy blowing up all around me. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling but that doesn't help. I'm so frustrated with this! Please fix!!
Recent update causes app to freeze
Zel123 on 6/22/2017
What else can I say? Do you guys test this before you push it out? I'm on an iPhone 7 Plus.
Too many video ads.
Lover of old app on 6/22/2017
I love this app, but hate sitting through a 15 second ad for every 30 second video I watch. It's excessive and annoying.
Krow1979 on 6/22/2017
The most reliable weather I have found
I like it!!
Tubz-311 on 6/22/2017
I like it!!
New update crashes Or won't even load
Canthav814 on 6/22/2017
This new update won't load half the time. It open but just spins saying loading.
Jawaj on 6/22/2017
Usually pretty great forecasts
Great Radar
Melike Monahan on 6/22/2017
I live the radar availability because it gives me a precise idea of when I'll get possible bad weather in my location. I also love that it tells me where the lighting strikes and how many seconds ago.
Accurate and convenient
Name132 on 6/22/2017
This app packs in so much information while maintaining an easy to use layout. I love being able to see the uv index and the hourly forecast. The radar is also a great feature and as a lifeguard, the storm notifications are really helpful. I definitely recommend this app for weather
Accurate weather app
judiwb on 6/22/2017
I check this app everyday and sometimes more than once a day. It gives you very accurate forecasts by the hour.
Falconman62 on 6/22/2017
Great app
Sparkles a lot on 6/22/2017
I love how this app alerts you of severe weather in any location you move to.
Great and dependable app!
Keyman56 on 6/22/2017
Love it!

A disaster. Freezes won't open
Oomps03 on 6/22/2017
I used to love this app. Since the last update, though, it has become more of a pain to use. Freezes up my phone, or says "Getting your weather" then does nothing, more than it works. Seriously considering deleting it if it's not fixed soon.
Weather app
CheeseSteaker on 6/22/2017
Good app helps me with info right away. Thanks!
The app crashes a lot
Willmarsh3 on 6/22/2017
The app looks nice but when I try to look up weather the app goes poof. I have to start over and wait for it to reload. I'm tired of this. I've tried updating the app and all but to no avail. I'm deep sixing this app today.
Ads galore.
Flatpicker 1980 on 6/22/2017
If you want to watch some ads, this is the app for you! Deleted.
Always have to open the app twice to get it to work!
Yoursminegthgvdgn on 6/22/2017
This has been an issue for a long time. Running the latest version of iOS on the newest iPhone.
Love This App!
Calderson2 on 6/22/2017
This app is great! It reports the weather on so many levels. Thanks!
Freezing app
BKHW on 6/22/2017
I love this app! But since the new update of it on my iPhone, it freezes when I first go into it. I have to close it and try again. I would like be to have this fixed.
That's it, I have had enough...
PORT3RMAN on 6/22/2017
In addition to poor performance, now your app keeps crashing my phone. Buh bye.
VanMan58707758 on 6/22/2017
The last upgrade freezes on my iPhone 6s. Can't use it any longer.
O . J on 6/22/2017
You people do a great Job
My favorite app
Mzhappy223 on 6/22/2017
So helpful and my favorite app
Good job
hoe 1 on 6/22/2017
Good job on this site
Accurate and simple
@vmf on 6/22/2017
While there are ads, they do not clutter the app. The data you need is easy to read and accurate.
Awful...Update please!!!!!!
Joe Cunn on 6/22/2017
New version won't even load. What are you guys doing. This app gets worse and worse. It used to be pretty good. Please figure it out.
Use it daily
HPA5233 on 6/22/2017
The weather app is the first thing I open in the morning. I like that the top / first feature adapts as the day progresses to show me what I want to see most given the time of day. Great all around.
Weather Channel App Is Great
E Stepp on 6/22/2017
Love being able to keep up with the weather on the go.
Handy and Accurate!
Wilee82914 on 6/22/2017
I use this app all the time and have found it to be very handy and accurate! It is easy to use!
grmacst on 6/22/2017
I find the info I'm looking for; app works for me. I don't like the ads though.
Love this app.
TaraLillyRavi on 6/22/2017
Great information.
las001 on 6/22/2017
I use this app 100% of the time especially when I plan to be outdoors. Most of the time is accurate or at least 99%. I recommend it. I do recommend the creator to include storm tracking from NOAA.
App freezes EVERY time I try to use it
Sherryannfuller on 6/22/2017
Love the idea of this app however it freezes EVERY single time I use it. Guessing there's a glitch as I've read other reviews with the same issue. Deleting app as there are other apps out there that work like a charm including Yahoo Weather.
Not dependable
Pelican55 on 6/22/2017
Since I updated this app it takes forever to load or won't load. Glitch in the system. Was working fine before last update. Please fix.
Tfav2133 on 6/22/2017
App freezes all the time after latest update. Please fix this asap!
worst app ever
Jaihdnsid on 6/22/2017
It changes the weather at least 40 times in 1 hour it's ridiculous how off their predictions are I hate it.
Recent update is horrible
Piece of junkkkkkkk on 6/22/2017
New update crashes and freezes all the time. I'm sorry I updated to the newest version!
Love my weather channel
KD from AP on 6/22/2017
I just love this app! Keeps me up-to-date on my conditions home or away! ----still loving it! Trying to get used to the update. I like seeing the sunrise and sunset when I open the app to my location.
