I love having the weather at my fingertips. But what’s the point of having a 2 week outlook if you guys change it everyday??

KarenKF on 1/23/2018
I am happy with the app. I like how accurate the forecast is and the ease at seeing other cities' weather. I also like the ratings for running and flu and allergies. Would be great to have a better forecast map.
Thedad51 on 1/23/2018
One of my favorite apps.
Can't get into it
Food &Food on 1/23/2018
Can someone help me I'm having a lot of trouble getting into it for 4 days now. It keeps telling me it quit.
Great Ap!

Best weather app
Liz12495 on 1/23/2018
I have downloaded so many weather apps and this is the best on yet, so much better than the one that comes with my phone. I love watching the weather channel on tv, and I love having the app on my iPhone wherever I go.
Swipe needs to return
Gamblingdog on 1/23/2018
The App was more user friendly when you could swipe to the next city... now you have to use the search...not as uF
E.Figueroa on 1/23/2018
Enjoy the weather app! Keep up with the good work.
Ramona alexander on 1/23/2018
I enjoy this app. It is accurate. I like the 15 day and 48 hr forecast
Great app
Rae021780 on 1/23/2018
I love using the Weather Channel app for accurate weather forecasts. It is user friendly and easy to navigate.
Weather Channel App is Great
5316-User on 1/23/2018
My sole weather app. Improvements in weather radar greatly appreciated. A local TV station weather app runs poorly so I don't use it any more. Feature I use most often is ‘future’ radar.
Truckers wife
Karenraesmith on 1/23/2018
As the wife of trucker driver I love this weather app! I know my home weather at a glance, which is awesome! With equal ease I can see the weather wherever my husband happens to be right then. The app is easy to use and always accurate.
My Most Used App
Rockheads Rule on 1/23/2018
As a Hydrogeologist conducting Environmental Investigations and Remediation in the field, this is my “go to” app to keep close track of the weather. I check it at least 10 times a day. Keep the improvements coming!
The weather
Fliznick on 1/23/2018

I use this daily! Living in FL the weather is constantly changing and love that the app makes changes accordingly.
Great Weather App
GingerAlix on 1/23/2018
This is my first go to app when I need to check the weather. I appreciate the warning’s that are given. I also enjoyed the videos and news feed they have that update me on what’s happening. Some things are just a little bit late but for me it’s OK.
Great app
bobpaynePH on 1/23/2018
There are others out there, but this is the best overall. Lots of details, great charts, forecasts, can have multiple locations you regularly check.
Great app
Tosinabi on 1/23/2018
Forecast is accurate
Depend on Weather App
Florida Sunshine 656 on 1/23/2018
With family scattered in different cities and states, I’m always checking my local weather and theirs. Really helps us when traveling to know what we will be driving through. I love the alerts and reliability of a true weather source that is always dependable! Thanks for your service.
Always on track !!!
DaveeeyDee on 1/23/2018
Does a very good job of informing my family on upcoming weather predictions.
Good job weather channel
Bingo013 on 1/23/2018
Love this app the updates are very convenient and much appreciated!
20gallons on 1/23/2018
I usually check the weather before I go out or take a trip. It makes it easier for me to dress for the weather.
Great App
Bobby-Calif on 1/23/2018
I use this app all the time. You see I’m an avid fisherman and I need to know what the weather before I hit the lake. Great app and would highly recommend.
It's ok
po0psmith on 1/23/2018
It's ok.
Papa1020 on 1/23/2018
Great app
Thestarsndmoon on 1/23/2018
The app is ok but has bugs and doesn’t update weather properly. I travel so depend on road conditions. Need more info on roads in areas and accumulations.
Retired and traveling with wife and visiting our families
Silver man 1 on 1/23/2018

I agree with J-sees. Takes longer to load. Was better before “with Watson” was added. Still my preference for weather since problems seem to be correct ed.
Best weather app iv had no matter what town I’m in it works good
bigbillcook on 1/23/2018
Works good
Auntie Barbara on 1/23/2018
Love TWC App. Look at it all the time! A day without it would be a sad day!
Best weather app
Ldr43 on 1/23/2018
Have tried several weather apps. This one works best for me and is user friendly. Every now and then there is a glitch. I think that was the user’s fault or my phone itself.😬 Use it always for weather update.
Check everyday for an update
Mjd8on on 1/23/2018
The best!
Great app!
ETFlash on 1/23/2018
How I always get the weather so I can plan my day!
Great app!
Topoychris on 1/23/2018
I use this app before I do anything like trips and outdoor activities. Great app!
Spanaran on 1/23/2018
Good app. Never many issues. Wish privacy was taken more seriously.
Use daily
1grazi on 1/23/2018
A lot of fluff that I don’t use, but still use daily
I mean it does what it says it does
*Mellerz* on 1/23/2018
I honestly can’t say it terrible because it’s not. I’m not the type of person that looks at the weather for fun, I legitimately need multiple weather apps the gauge how the weather is going to be. I use different weather apps because all of the weather apps grab data from different sources. So I compare them all and I’m good to go.
moose5474 on 1/23/2018
Always available with the latest no matter where you are
Great app
MacDuck3949 on 1/23/2018
Good App
MsTexMac on 1/23/2018
Would be better if bring back swipe sideways to see other locations! Hate that this feature is gone. Will probably delete app if not brought back.
Temp on icon?
Zinger717 on 1/23/2018
Wouldn’t it be awesome to have the outside temp be on the app badge? Yep. It sure would. You don’t even have to give me credit for that idea.
Very good, but...
KaiBearX on 1/23/2018
I would like to see the storm tracker function a bit better. It doesn’t allow you to select the storm you want to track, but instead gives you a generic page. I would give it 5 stars if that function could get up and running.
mjmkodak on 1/23/2018
Easy to use. Good weather app.
Great App
Sheiks me on 1/23/2018
Very user friendly and reliable app. Weather is usually very accurate along with weather update media videos.
