Update app error
DACA3251989 on 9/25/2017
Love the app but can no longer use with my iPhone 5 because it says not compatible. When I look for what devices it's compatible with the iPhone 5 is not on the list however my iPhone 5 has software 10.3.3. If no update before Halloween I will be deleting the app for good off my iPhone.
brvsfrk17 on 9/25/2017
Can no longer swipe side to side to switch to other saved locations? Please fix!
Search But Can’t Find
Jimbo40 on 9/25/2017
How do I find Jones Beach using this app???
Too political
3855312799432 on 9/25/2017
This app has become too political. The video feed and video clips are too political and almost controversial. I'd rather use a weather app that sticks to showing the weather.
What happened??
Starr#rating on 9/25/2017
IF YOU HAVE NOT DONE THE LAST 2 UPDATES, DON'T!! I loved my app until the last 2 updates - now it is mostly unusable. It freezes, is slow to open, runs slow & crashes. Can't contact them thru app now, to find out what to do. Have not been able to do that online either. I also can't get to the other locations that I have saved, to check their weather. If you haven't updated, don't. As is, is barely functional, & not presently worth the amount of time it takes to open. I want to go back to the previous one, & so far, unable to contact them to ask how to do that. Really wish I had not updated it - I used it all the time. Currently useless & frustrating.
Jtpyuj on 9/25/2017
No longer just weather. Constantly bringing politics and shoving views down my throat. If I wanted that, I'd watch CNN. Deleted the app after using it for many years. Goodbye.
Used to be my go to app
FortWorthMamma on 9/25/2017
When an app decides to become political I decide to change apps
Updates ??
Hspd 519 on 9/25/2017
Sometime, in one of the last couple of updates, flipping between locations slowed to a crawl and often requires two or three tries to get it to change location. Additionally, the edit/clear function change is now cumbersome and annoying. Put the edit function back and leave well enough alone. Not a true update if it's worse than before
amlombardo22 on 9/25/2017
Finally deleted the app because it only works sporadically. It used to be better, after I got the ad-free version. Half the time it “can’t get your weather at this moment....” every other day. Unreliable. Maybe they’ll iron these issues out...
It won’t load
missdotti on 9/25/2017
I loved this app. The newest version won’t load. It either hangs on the load screen forever, or it just crashes. Boo.
Doesn't work.
Robert Paulson aka Bob on 9/25/2017
Ever since the new iOS update, the app hasn't worked for me. Just a blue screen, nothing else. I also have to agree with all the other bad reviews, that this app is now infested with ads and videos. It just keeps getting worse.
You lost me
LostNCloud on 9/25/2017
Have a 5c. Your latest update has removed your APP from my phone. What am I to do now? I am not buying another phone in near future.
Borderline unusable
klovett87 on 9/25/2017
So slow and clunky. Too many obnoxious ads and pop-ups. Switched to AccuWeather and it has been muuuuch better.
Broken for iOS11 Facebook longin
Mori122 on 9/25/2017
If your app was connected to Facebook it remains connected but if you logout or attempt to connect a new device it does not successfully connect
Dissapointed on 9/25/2017
I've used this app almost every day over the last 3 years on my iphone 5, now the app says it's not compatible even though I have the accepted OS. I am currently looking for an accurate replacement.
Pop Up Channel
Amarilloguy on 9/25/2017
Much improved guys! The app is almost perfect. Back to my go to. No more crashing and no more pop ups. Thank you very much!
Patch needed!!
Gulf.Girl on 9/25/2017
I don't know what happened but on this latest update the app will no longer open on my iPhone 6s+ It just spins and then shuts down. Please check for any bugs and send a new patch. Thanks!
Cyclingidiot on 9/25/2017
Slow, shows wrong area for my location most days, must swipe screen to get my true location. Very slow to react to videos. I have old version on phone also and it is superior to new one by leaps and bounds. And you want me to pay to upgrade! Did that with old version and it was great but this one has a long, long way to go.
Freezing and some inconsistency
Friendtrickster on 9/25/2017
I like the app but have been having issues for a while with it freezing, going black, and shutting down. Sometimes it really fails me with the weather too. It will say no rain in sight, but rains anyway.
Pretty good.
DerTrommler on 9/25/2017
Apparently Watson can't write an app that works after the latest update. Opens until to a blue screen and nothing else.
Always wrong
trent1575 on 9/25/2017
The weather channels accuracy is horrible, you'd be better off looking outside to see what the weather is doing. Their app is extremely convenient and their news stories are fun to watch, which is the only reason I still have the app. If you want a roughly accurate forecast look elsewhere.
Horrible update
HS111610 on 9/25/2017
Recent updates have made this app horrible to use
Terrible app
Saturndogmom on 9/25/2017
App no longer works. Too many ads. Fix it!
I used to love it!
jelihad on 9/25/2017
There are too many ads that pop up while I am looking at the weather. This same weird one will come up twice in a row as a video and I have no clue what it even is about. It's a finger running across something white. I have to close out of it 2 times before I can get back to the weather. Super annoying. Deleting my app and getting a different one.
Account deleted
IWNBP on 9/25/2017
After a recent update I noticed all my custom settings were deleted and I had been signed out of my account. When I try to sign back in I am told my email is incurrent. I check my spelling etc and it correct. I even tried my secondary email and got the same response. Where did my account go? Also the pollen display has been glitchy and mold display almost never shows mold count. And I am always baffled how it's always very good conditions for running when our local weatherman reports poor air quality. One last thing. I wish you would go back to previous version layout. I do use the app everyday and always loved it. But it has become more frustrating now.
Won't open
Bradsma02 on 9/25/2017
My app hasn't opened in days. It's updated and I rebooted my phone so I'm sure the problem isn't on my end.
Very slow
RdscAppReview04202016 on 9/24/2017
Latest version is very slow. The app is unusable.
Great App!!!
Qtown Dad on 9/24/2017
Ok IBM, what the hell are you doing to The Weather Channel? It's now worse than ever. Most links don't work, crashes more times than not. You can surely do better than this with Watson!
iPhone 5 Can't Update or Reinstall
smctopia on 9/24/2017
I still have an iPhone 5 that I keep as a wifi only device to quickly check email, etc around the house. Even before iOS 11 came out, I got a message saying to update the app. When I went to update, it said the app was not compatible with my device. Why would an update show if my phone can't take advantage of it? I deleted the app and tried to install again and I again got a message saying it was incompatible. Why can't the store let me reload the last compatible version? This is a critical issue, especially with all the hurricanes this year. An older device may be a lifeline to someone in danger.
No longer works with last update
Sr195 on 9/24/2017
After the latest update, app no longer works - it gets stuck on a blue screen and fails to load, even after multiple restarts.
Poor performance
09hallmand on 9/24/2017
Recently the layout has become very bloated with advertising and media. The app is at times unresponsive and aggravating to navigate.
Glitchy after update
Omgsoooooogood on 9/24/2017
I used to LOVE this app, but now it locates me somewhere else when I open it. Also, the ads on EVERY SINGLE VIDEO are annoying. When it gets glitchy and the video starts over, you get hit with another ad. Going back to Apple Weather :/
Lamausy on 9/24/2017
Fan but not anymore.
Won't update
Caligirl✌🏻️🐼 on 9/24/2017
I have an iPhone 5 and it won't update!!! I'm really ticked about this. Please fix it!!!!!!!
Deleting This App
Soon-to-be Ex-subscriber on 9/24/2017
The weather channel has made their previously wonderful app unusable. There is so much video and other garbage to wade through that I find it difficult to get to the info I want. It also now crashes frequently. Goodbye weather channel and hello Apple weather.
App Hangs
SenseiSoul on 9/24/2017
I have tried to open the app several times without success. Hangs on the screen displaying the Weather Channel logo and “with Watson.” Please fix. I have an IPhone SE with IOS 11 installed.
I used to adore this but..
Catrulers on 9/24/2017
This was my all time favorite weather app but sadly it says it is no longer compatible with my device.
Consumer 17 on 9/24/2017
I always like the weather channel app until you decided that my phone wasn't good enough for the update. Unless you would like to pay for a new phone, it looks like I will be deleting this app. Not very consumer friendly.
Super Glitchy
Soph : D on 9/24/2017
Takes forever to load, scrolling is very glitchy, often crashes
Aschober on 9/24/2017
Each version gets worse Slow to update Slow to swipe between locations Keeps saying it has trouble with internet connection. Strange how that us the only app that does that.
Ridiculous unusable
Marycantgetweather on 9/24/2017
Every time I try to look at anything it just shuts down (new phone). Try to play a video and the ads come through fantastic, then actual video will not play. Does not recognize where I live (large city).
News ap
kjdirienzo on 9/24/2017
I love this app
The ADS!
Outofleftfield87 on 9/24/2017
The ADS make this app very unusable. They are very intrusive and difficult to close. You have to repeatedly tap the x to try to close the ad. Then it comes right back up. I understand ads but not this impolite intrusive garbage.
JH702_808 on 9/24/2017
This app is my go to for weather. But disappointed that the new updates are not compatible w/ my phone (iPhone 5c) any longer!! 🙁
What happened to your app
901VWTDI on 9/24/2017
This app was one of the best for weather forecasts but with the newest update it crashes more often and rarely fully loads.
Sound plays- have to delete app
AmyBofDallas on 9/24/2017
Unfortunately I have to delete this app. The ads play sound when I open the app. That should never happen unless I click to play the sound. This used to be my favorite weather app. Sad about the changes :(
Landscaper1111 on 9/24/2017
I've used this app for a long time but recently (even after deleting and redownloading) It has become incredibly slow and crashes all the time. VERY frustrating.. Update: app constantly crashes. I restart and power the phone down and it doesn’t work at all.
Please update to address bugs:glitches
RiceGirl on 9/24/2017
Used to be a great app. With the latest updates - problems: 1. Repeatedly keep getting the prompt that my data cannot be updated, check your internet connection... running tests, nothing wrong with my home or work networks & no problems with other weather apps; 2. Used to be able to swipe to get my next selected location - nothing happens; 3. Loading wheel takes longer to update info or just spins. 4. Paying 3.99 for No Adds is offensive when the app does not work properly.
DickDastardly35 on 9/24/2017
It's always nice when you provide an update that brings up a blue screen and nothing else. I wish I could give this a half star.
G of C on 9/24/2017
Having problems updating the app. It says can't be done with this device, never got that notification before
