Could be A LOT BETTER!!
rainbowredneck01 on 6/24/2018
Whoever is in charge of this app should make the radar a little better. It is not accurate at all! There is no app out there that is actually correct about our weather. We need to have an app that will tell us about severe weather before it’s actually happening. Yes I get alerts of our severe weather but after it is happening so I’m sitting here like ummm duh....
Very Disappointed 😔
Irbi10 on 6/24/2018
Only 10% of the people say ‘ Oh my god get this app it is great.” While the other 90% says that it is trash. I am one of those 90%. I can not believe that The Weather Channel can’t even forecast a 20 minute snow. Very dissapointed. Accuracy is never accurate and radar would take a long time to load. I think all of this is a big fat lie that it says that this is the most acurate app. Honestly the videos it gives are more social then more weather related. If you live near Washington D.C then you should get a accurate report of your weather. For example it gave 90% chance of heavy thunderstorms with heavy downpours and the next thing you know after 5 minutes slightly chance of rain shower. WOW. How can the storm move away that is about 1 mile away to reaching us and suddenly just miss us. I do not understand how people give 5 stars to this app and even 3 stars. Seorisly you should hire people that acctually work and keep check of the radar every 2 minutes ( because they said that the weather channel app radar refreshes every 2 minutes. I don’t think that this app will ever become great in the near future. Until you get better people in Atlanta, Georgia headquaters and you write a developers feedback to this review I am not having this app downloaded in my phone that takes a lot of battery and storage. Hopefully my review will actually make you responsible for this app and to take more care of it. Very disappointed.
Way off
TTC63 on 6/24/2018
For the last few weeks this app hasn’t been close. Storms pop up everywhere and the radar shows nothing. Yesterday is showed rain here a few times and heavy, still waiting to see the rain.
Stop moving around the “hourly” link
alison.... on 6/24/2018
Muscle memory is a thing, just keep things in the same place instead of constantly moving the “hourly” and “daily” or “weekend” forecast links - keep them in the same spot! Other than that, it’s the only weather app I’ve ever used, seems to work great, just always been annoyed that they move the functions around and I have to go searching or scrolling half the time and then end up opening ads or other things that I don’t need.
Will Not Start After Update
AudiDudie on 6/24/2018
Won’t load on my iPhone 8 after the latest update. Please fix. Edit 5/30/18: Still will NOT launch after your response Edit 6/8/18: Deleted app, then reinstalled. Working fine now.
Long load time(Edit, works great)
sohovik on 6/24/2018
Since new update today(5/23/18), app takes a long time to start. Get spinning wheel for a while. Once it does load, it's fine. 6/24 Developer got back to me about an update, and the app loads normally without a hang up. Thanks for the response!
Its so inaccurate
Docrocket1967 on 6/24/2018
Everytime i check this app to see what the westher is like it is 95% of the time wrong when it comes to rain in the tampa area of florida. Dont even get me started on the last hurricane we had, this app oversold its devastation by far. Wither the meteorologist that run this app dont have a clue or it’s a bunch of newbies in college learning.
It’s fascinating how consistently wrong this app is
FilmBuff33 on 6/24/2018
Not just projections, they’ll get the CURRENT temperature wrong on a fairly consistent basis.
Unusable, no contact information
caligirlvb5 on 6/24/2018
Update - June 24: still not loading, and no response from the development team (either to this review or the email I finally found). Works fine on my iPad, but I don't always have that with me. Weather Channel app development team, get your act together!! Since the recent update a few days ago, the app will not load. I tried going to the feedback section and there is no way to submit feedback to the developer, which I would always rather do first, before submitting a negative review. Their "feedback" page is just an FAQ page. Really frustrating, as I am used to using this app multiple times a day.
Why am I seeing ads after I paid more not to see them
CV breathe2 on 6/24/2018
This has been my go-to weather app for a long time. I haven’t had the issues other users describe of late. But I am really just need to see so many ads once again. I willingly paid for this app so that I would have the ad free version. What has happened? It’s disappointing
Awful app...
Dream Patch on 6/24/2018
This new version of the app, “The Tracker” is horrible. Lost all my locations, had to go online to see the weather in another location. Then the locations are not saved at all! I am very disappointed with this! They have always had a great app before
Toddy 2tones on 6/24/2018
Much more stable
Bad update
Sis2ewe on 6/24/2018
I paid for this app so I wouldn’t have the ads. Since upgrading to the new version not only do I have ads again but all my locations are gone! Very frustrating!
(Updated) App won’t load
Bri02222 on 6/24/2018
UPDATE: so I had to reinstall the app to get it to work, which was pretty annoying bc I lost all of my saved data. It works fine now though so I guess 4 stars Original: I love this app, it’s my main app for getting the weather. However, with the newest update (May 23rd 2018) The app wont load. It’s a constant loading screen. I know of other people who are also having this issue. Please fix this! Otherwise, app is great
Afc_macewan on 6/24/2018
This is the worst app ever. Ridiculously inaccurate. It is the worst weather app besides all the other weather apps. They can’t get the weather right an hour in advance, much less a day in advance. Just look at the radar and make your own predictions you’ll be better off.
Ad Remover
jabsandy on 6/24/2018
Paid $3.99 for ad free and nothing changed. Contacted Weather Channel who said they would get back to me but didn’t. There’s plenty of other weather apps I can use.
Much slower than the soon to be discontinued version
Wood John on 6/24/2018
I really liked the old version. This version with “Watson” is terribly slow to open. It is really not usable when I just want a quick update. Too bad they are discontinuing the old app as of 5/24/18 UPDATE 6/24/18: I received a response from the developer that they have fixed the slow opening issue. I checked and it is now MUCH better than it was! I upgraded my review from 1 star to 5 stars due to the speed improvement and the quick response from the developer.
jb_is_my_life on 6/24/2018
Can’t read the articles when they are entered in yellow and white. What was wrong with complete sentences? Guess I’m too old for this site and must take my advertising dollars to another.
Worse Than Awful
50ish dudeski on 6/23/2018
Like they say, if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. Deleted from computer!
Ads are unbelievable!
ABart28 on 6/23/2018
Why do ads take priority over special weather statements? I’m trying to see a tornado statement and a Jeep ad keeps taking over. You would think SAFETY would be more important.
Really Poor app
qqqqeeeeuuuuffffppp123466789 on 6/23/2018
Forced to use this app when the older app was so much better all around. Now I use other apps.
Still doesn’t work
Klvandy11 on 6/23/2018
Sits on loading gps and goes no further. I downloaded this app when you first put it out and it has NEVER loaded. For the longest time it wouldn’t progress pas the initial logon screen, now it makes it to the loading gps screen and goes no further.
Totally gave me outdated info on radar
Ro63 on 6/23/2018
I told a young man it was safe to be on the road home based on the radar provided for me last night in OKC and he got stuck driving in severe weather. I’m very disappointed in this app.
Caroilna Hernandez on 6/23/2018
seeweed47 on 6/23/2018
Forecast says one thing, radar shows another. I could do better.
pmichelsen on 6/23/2018
When enabling significant weather and saving, app asks user to choose a location but the location option isn’t active. Lacks smooth scrolling.
The arthritis in my ankle does a better
3Boxers&ARott on 6/23/2018
DO NOT use this app to plan your days. It is consistently wrong. Several times it has said that there was little chance for rain yet suddenly we would be stuck in a downpour. In fact it is happening right now! We bought tickets to an outdoor concert and thought it would be OK based on this app’s forecast but now it looks like the event will be canceled and we will lose the money on our tickets. Thanks a lot Weather Channel! You owe me 60 bucks! Of course the app does update the forecast at the time but that’s useless information when it tells you it’s not going to rain and then it does. My ankle tends to ache when rain is coming so I’m just going to use that as a barometer for what to expect. The degree of accuracy is much better.
Still the best
Klaw71 on 6/23/2018
I don’t like the update but it’s still better than all the other weather apps for iOS.
App inaccurate
JustinIntsuJ on 6/23/2018
Doesn’t work. Constantly says it is raining when it’s bright and sunny. Things like that happen all the time. If you want something accurate I’d get something different.
Ads drive me crazy
PhantomPhan! on 6/23/2018
For weather, it does its job. Fairly accurate, specific, and with multiple options (daily, hourly, 14-day forecast, radar, etc.) But the ADS on this app are awful. I’ll be scrolling down to check the radar or something else and a video will appear full-screen and start playing. I’ll exit out of it and then every five to ten seconds afterwards it will keep appearing. It’s also too easy to accidentally click on an unseen ad as you’re scrolling, which will automatically take you out of the Weather app and open up the advertisement’s webpage in Safari. It’s beyond annoying and just another gimmick to get you to pay money to have the ads removed.
Apple’s weather app is way better than yours
Jd johnny on 6/23/2018
In your face
What a shame
confused in maine on 6/23/2018
They took a great ap and updated it to a mess. Radar feature is ridiculous, sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. Old ap showed all info you needed without constant scrolling. Of course, they had to add advertising video, funny thing, ads always work, but not the radar. So disappointed, weather underground is looking good again.
Unknown;)...... Z z z on 6/23/2018
First off, I love this app. Gives the most accurate readings that I’ve seen over all the other weather apps. But recently, every time I open the app to look at the upcoming forecast, the screen freezes, and then gets replaced by a video ad that I can’t stop until the video is finished!
Not working
mattd123103 on 6/23/2018
The app just loads and does nothing else
Never right.
Clong64 on 6/23/2018
Worst weather app I’ve ever seen. Whoever does the forecast in Ohio must be on acid.
You Get
Lottalove59 on 6/22/2018
3 Stars! I fixed the location with help from a friend because no one from the Weather I think reads these! I like everything about it since I got it to work correctly. But you are only getting 3 Stars due to the fact that so much more is out to show videos of! The same ones keep playing over and over for weeks and under different places they repeat. Can’t you find more and not repeat? Weather is amazing and so cool to watch from afar, especially on this app. So change them up a lot more!
Original app was great, this one is terrible.
gfm61 on 6/22/2018
Original app was visually easy to read quickly, verify easy to use. The changes they made are terrible. Too much data that is too small to read, doesn’t tell me what I want quickly and cleanly. I’m shopping for a new app... Very disappointing. If it isn’t broke, please don’t fix it and screw it up like you did this time.
Very informative
Lucifier367 on 6/22/2018
Great job love the new layout, I use this app all the time and it’s great!!
Difficult to scroll through
Penny 1045 on 6/22/2018
Original app was great. New version is difficult to scroll through, not responsive and gets stuck. I have to give up and find the forecast elsewhere.
It’s good, but
Belkager on 6/22/2018
So I use this app regularly, but for some reason, my radar isn’t accurate. While the people around me see clear skies for where I am, I see red on the radar, and the weather it shows changes based on how far I zoom in or out. Is there a way to fix this or am I stuck with a faulty radar?
Radar in motion
BrianW97 on 6/22/2018
This app is usually pretty good with alerts. However every single time I go to check the interactive radar the storms disappear or have large areas of blank maps. I am highly disappointed that app radar never seems to get better.
Fix your app
adsturm on 6/22/2018
There are bugs that make it crash. Been reported but still not fixed a week later
Not recommended
Kingdom Proclaimer 5277 on 6/22/2018
This app consistently changes my location to “Ohio, Ohio” and I need to change it to my location almost every time I open it. I have submitted location error reports multiple times, but it continues. The temperatures in one screen do not agree with the temperatures in the other screen. The radar is sometimes way behind the actual conditions. It cannot be trusted. The Storm app worked much better but this replaced it. Although I paid the subscription fee I am looking to replace this app. Not Recommended!!!! I have found WeatherBug which is more accurate and knows my location.
sZsznn on 6/22/2018
Please remove the ads!! Willing to pay more to eliminate them!!!
miss old ap
12987356 on 6/22/2018
the new ap is glitchy and not as easily used/ interactive as old one. generally updates should be a step forward not back. tempted to find new source for weather info
MattySmithy50 on 6/22/2018
Wrong all the time! Deleted!!! So bad at their jobs!
Improvements are not always an improvement
Vickie1975 on 6/22/2018
The old app was twice as fast and lot easier to navigate. Instead of just “tapping” the name of a city in the upper bar, now you have to open a whole new pop up. The feature to “remove ads” does not work and I for one am NOT interested in ANYTHING that might come up in an ad. In fact, I find some of them to be degrading. I’ll find another app to use.
Horrible app
zzzillion on 6/22/2018
They really screwed up.
Nicholas Lustick on 6/22/2018
I would love being a weather man, you can do your job wrong and not get fired. This crap changes hourly and is never right. It would be poring rain outside and the app would say “ prepare for light showers in 10 minutes.” Why can weather people do their job right like everyone else has to.
Won’t even load on my iPhone 6+
sjessee on 6/22/2018
Apparently too data intensive to load on my old iPhone. Maybe a phone problem but it is the only app that won’t start.
